This was in celebration of our granddaughter’s first NYC visit.
Absolutely great restaurant! Nice foods and atmosphere.
The food was great and the service was impeccable. I look forward to more dinners at the Russian Tea Room.
The food here is good enough. It's a long time New York restaurant but some of their prices are just robbery. I had an iced tea and it was $10!! No refills or anything. What a rip off. The service is also very rushed and they try to push you out very quickly.
We were warmly greeted when we arrived. The room was quiet and beautifully decorated. We sat in a roomy booth. The pace was leisurely and I felt as comfortable as if I were at home. One person had the salad which was large for an appetizer and had blue cheese and walnuts. Looked great and she said it was. We had the crepe with a mild goat cheese which was delicious. I had the baked salmon with fresh carrots, brocolini and rice and they had beef stroganoff. We all loved our main courses. We all had cheesecake for dessert which was good. This was the restaurant week menu and a good value. Tea was $10 and was a teabag in a pot served with cherries. Seems to me that is way overpriced. Coffee is $8. They did have inexpensive wine for $9 a glass. Service was pleasant and professional. Will definitely go back.
second time there. For restaurant week. Food is quite disappointing given their long-time reputation as one of the legendary classic places. Services is worse. When i asked for hot tea and stopped him from pouring my ice water (cramps issue), he ROLLED HIS EYE on me and said "huh". tables are at a reasonable distance from each other. But somehow did not help reduce the noise level in the dining area. Very noisy. Would not recommend this place to any one.
Service was very accommodating. Often not the case during restaurant week.
Enjoyed our winter restaurant week $29.00 lunch. Waiter was really pleasant and accommodating. Food was very good. We would have preferred a booth instead of a table,
since there were other parties of two that had booths. Don't know if that was because we
were there for restaurant week or not. We did ask hostess as she was seating us if we could have a booth (there were booths empty and one right near us was filled after that with a couple). We did order wine and pots of tea so our bill was closer to $50.00 pp, which was fine with us.
One of the best experiences i’ve had in a restaurant. Definitely one of the places to go in nyc
Dry finger sandwiches. Minimal amount of caviar. Our waiter disappeared at the end of the meal. Way overpriced. Will not go back.
