The food was very bad. It didn’t taste fresh or authentic. The amount of food provided for the cost was not worth it at all.
As beautiful as I expected. Service impeccable, food outstanding. Delicious Eggs Florentine. Pricey but a once in a lifetime experience. Go if you can.
Wonderful place for a nice brunch
The food was amazing tried something new and loved it deff coming back here. The restaurant looks so beautiful and the service was great.
We came for high tea and stayed for dinner. Service was fantastic and so was the food. We highly recommend!
A bit pricey but worth every penny. Food and service was exceptional. Highly recommend the beef stroganoff. Will come back!
My daughter and I had an amazing time! The whole experience was wonderful… we had impeccable service with perfect recommendations! Fantastic food!
The food was very good, and the service was perfect - not too fast or too slow. The old world ambience was nice too.
Not better than home cooked
A delicious meal with excellent service. A wonderful dining experience in a beautiful and unique setting.
Overpriced and gaudy. The food was abysmal.
Get the Borscht. It's very good. Heck, everything is good but I remember the borscht in particular.
Our waiter was asking for my girlfriend's phone number while I was going to the rest room. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.
We hadn't eaten at the RTR in years and were delighted to find that the magic was still there. The food, ambience, and service were all outstanding.
Everything was perfect as usual, the waitress very kind, the food very taste. For sure I will come again my next time in NYC
Great experience, however, the greeter at the front door could be friendlier. Seemed to have an attitude.
Otherwise this was a most excellent dining experience!!!
It was great food and service. Some friend said here is for tourists but it’s not. Food is great, a bit pricy but tastes are great!! I love their interior!! When I have guests I’ll go. This time I have a friend from my county she wanted to take pictures and post in her Instagram. Here is the best. And she enjoyed dinner and drinks!! We ordered not much honestly, but they were really nice to treat us. I recommend!!
The service was excellent, and the decor is as opulent as pictures suggest. However, the food is lackluster. We had the afternoon tea, no champagne. The tea menu is limited (though refills are provided without asking). The sandwiches are varied, but execution was lacking. Bread felt stale, and the ingredients didn't quite harmonize in a pleasing way. Scones were served with butter, not cream. Presentation was elegant.
Bottom line: go for the ambience and to check it off your list, not because the food is good. Better high tea can be experienced anywhere else in the city for less.
Love love love this nostalgic place! The food, the staff, all lovely!
A great experience and the food was marvelous. Vodka and caviar pairing, beef stroganoff and salmon wrapped in pastry (can't recall the proper name), Czar's dessert, martini with cucumber and caviar. Terrific!
Beautiful, historic setting, perfect for high tea.
Unfortunately the RTR seems to be resting on it’s history & lore.
the finger sandwiches were average, the pastries unremarkable— with the exception of the chocolate macaroons, which were heavenly
Service was poor. Despite sitting with the lids conspicuously off all our empty tea pots for 10 minutes, we practically had to flag our server down with semaphores to get refills. Getting the check no more easier.
Definitely not worth the $80 per person.
BEAUTIFUL place for Sunday brunch with great service!
Amazing! Beautiful place with great service
Our Waiter Jetmir was amazing . The food was amazing. The decor was amazing. I will be back.
Love the ambiance, the service, and the food. The prices were very reasonable for what you’re getting. Will definitely be back for more.
Outstanding Restaurant Week lunch, in an exquisite setting. The Red Borscht and Boeuf à la Stroganoff were outstanding. The service was very attentive. Wonderful experience!
Totally impromptu visit did not disappoint ! Iconic and simply the best! Will def go again … felt very safe with COVID PROTOCOLS
Honestly I know you're paying for the ~ experience ~ but it's not worth $80/person for lil sandwiches and tea. The food was okay but nothing crazy. I could make it myself tbh. Also there was barely anyone in the restaurant but there was 1 guy at the bar who was SO LOUD and it was pretty irritating.
Prices are grossly exorbitant while the selection is limited. Food quality is not close to commensurate to cost. Have been there is the past but would not return.
Excellent experience at an iconic landmark. Good food, polite staff.
I needed a little pampering, and the combination of a glass of champagne and the caviar tasting was perfect! More filling than you would think, and all three were delicious.
Excellent food, amazing room, attentive services, afternoon tea was quite lovely
Restaurant Week is slacking (no dessert listed anymore unless you pay $125) and some of the service is too. Salad was great though and the Russian Country tea is excellent.
The food was absolutely delicious. The only thing I was expecting and didn't get was a more extensive tea service. No sugar cubes and cream, just sugar packets and you had to pour your own tea. I've had a better tea service elsewhere, but not better food so it's not much of a complaint, just an observation. I would definitely go back.
My first time I went during restaurant week for lunch with my sister to celebrate her birthday. We had a good time service was great the food was excellent:. The attention was great. Is a place we’re you could enjoy a conversation without straining yourself to hear what the other person is saying or raising your voice .. we love it
Went there for Restaurant Week 2021. Ambiance was nice, however service was slow, the waiter seemed upset/surprised by the fact that we were doing restaurant week. Food was not really good. My friend couldn't finish her dish as it was too salty. Cocktails were as expensive as the food.
I understand this is a NY's classic, so perhaps just go for a cocktail, the pictures, and that's it!
Beautiful ambiance. Outstanding service. Fantastic afternoon tea that was bountiful. Portions were generous.
Restaurant week menu has lovely choices and was quite reasonable.
We had a fabulous dinner and dessert. The service was impeccable and they brought us our dessert with a candle in it and wished us a Happy Anniversary. We will be back on our next visit to Manhattan in September. I purchased a beautiful clutch purse and earrings as well in their gift shop.
