    Loved the atmosphere. The annoying girl sitting next to us had a penetrating voice so hopefully you won't see her. Drinks amazing, a bit expensive but special. Waiters very very nice and accommodating! Have the filet mignon crostinis1

    Came here for brunch. The establishment was very full and lively. Everyone was happy and having fun. We had to wait a little for our table, maybe 15-20 minutes, not bad for such a jammed pack place. It was a nice diverse crowd. The tables were a bit tight but it’s NYC , that’s life. Our server was straight to the point and all about business. While taking our order, my friend made a joke and our server was not amused and let us know that , he said he’s very busy and doesn’t have time for jokes. We were torn by this because, it was very busy , that was true but it was just a quick 1 second joke. After that he said he’ll come back to get that last drink order. I give him credit, he did return quickly. I think it would help, if they put a picture of the drinks on the menu because everyone comes for the beautiful drinks they see on IG but when reading the drink menu, you don’t know, which is which. The drinks were all cool and beautiful drinks . Two drinks tasted plain and ok and two drinks were really good but that’s just my opinion. The mystery drink was the best. It was the tastiest and the coolest. The food came out and the burger was Amazing!!! The steak and eggs was definitely tasty , the only complaint was it was smaller than what I expected and the steak was cold, no way around it , it was cold but my egg was very hot, a balance , I guess. The lobster salad was very good. The ambience was definitely cool. I would recommend this establishment to others. It’s definitely a good experience.

    Woooweee we we're 45 minutes late and the other half of our party was waiting as was the restaurant! We called at the time of the rez to say we were going to be late. It was a bustling brunch day and didn't imagine we'd be seated. Well, they couldn't have been more gracious and civilized about it. We waited about 15 minutes once we arrived and then were seated. The lobster Benedict, French toast and stroganoff burger were exceptional. One entree arrived without the other three. So it became cold while we waited. Didn’t ding a star, but wanted to mention this was the only issue. The drinks were freakin adorable. We had rock candy and peacock feathers in the pink champagne margaritas. We didn't opt for the cotton candy in the mimosa as it took a few extra minutes to prepare. Tip: order the sugar donuts. You can thank me later. We can’t wait to come by for dinner.

    The food and experience were amazing. There was a delay in getting seated despite our having reservations and we watched other parties be seated before us. The host tried to make it seem like we needed to have our entire party with us to be seated to seat us though that wasn’t the case for other parties. However, he did make it up to us later with complimentary champagne. Everything we ate and drank was not only tasty but fun and visually appealing. I will be going back.

    We were looking for a fun restaurant with an eclectic menu and moderate prices for NYC and boy, did we find it in Sveta!! The decor is fanciful and fun. My only complaint was that the music was a bit loud. Drinks are not inexpensive, but a portion of the $22 cost goes to support food for Ukraine. That said, the cocktails are amazingly handcrafted and entertaining…mine came bubbling with dry ice in a light bulb (Energy), while another came in a bird shaped glass with feathers in the tail, on a cotton candy nest! Each was creative and fun, as well as delicious. The food choices are varied and also delicious. After appetizers of grilled octopus, veal dumplings, and wild mushroom barley soup, we had hanger steak with chimichurri, salmon on wild mushroom risotto, chicken, and beef stroganoff. All delicious and beautifully served. For dessert, we shared a ferris wheel of small beignets with a gooseberry compote….just enough. Service was friendly and efficient. We did not once have to ask for the water carafes to be refilled. Dinner with drinks, appetizers, mains and shared dessert came to about $80 a person, and worth every penny. We would definitely eat here again.

    It took 45 minutes to be seated when we had a reservation. After an hour and 15 minutes, we finally had food on the table. The cocktails were fun and the food was good - not sure if it worth the wait, though. The manager was apologetic and comped an appetizer and gave us tequila shots. They were slammed and trying their best so I may give it another try but perhaps for brunch vs dinner.

    Sveta is that wonderful combination of a fun, festive spot that also has great food, great service and friendly people. It is both elegant and comfortable. The people who run it know how to bring both style and substances Yes the cocktails are Instagrammable but they are also delicious. The food is delicious: the pelmeni, chicken Kiev, borscht and Russian caviar were particularly good.

    A fantastic birthday dinner at Sveta. Allen, the owner, made sure to accommodate our large group and made us feel special. Drinks were inventive and delicious (try the Dove of Ukraine with cotton candy!) - food was outstanding (loved the Branzino and the donut ferris wheel). Ambience is great. Will definitely be back.

    I was disappointed. The food was average to a bit less than average, was not as described on the menu, and though the place was mostly empty when we arrived, the service was inattentive. Nobody offered to refill our drinks. Nobody asked if we wanted dessert, etc. We waited a long time for everything.

    Buyer beware of extremely shady business policies. A couple of others reviewing here alluded a similar horrible experiences. Everything seemed to be an okay experience until we received the bill. Our initial bill was correct but, luckily, noticed that they included an 18% service fee. We thought this was odd since there were only 2 of us but shook it off as we would have added at least an 18% tip anyway. However, we scrutinized the 2nd part of the billing (ie. the receipt for signature after they ran our credit card). We noticed that the sign-off receipt included a sneaky blank line requesting a ‘TIP’. Moreover, this same billing receipt included pre-printed suggestions for the tip amount. This is now common practice among restaurants and thus no big deal except that the suggested percentages were percentage calculations multiplied by the final total of the preceding bill which already included the tip and tax! The receipt showing the itemized detail was now in the restaurants possession (but we had taken a snapshot of it before they had taken it away). Now one has to wonder how many daily patrons totally miss this scam since a large percentage of diners likely do not notice the tip already being included so they not only tipped twice, but the second unintended tip was actually multiplied (20%??) off of the food/drink costs, tax, AND already included tip!! What a total brazen scam. Really, really sad that there are unethical purveyors like this in the U.S. blatantly exploiting their customers.

    SvetaResponded on September 20, 2022What is your email so I could show how it says service charon the check , so there won’t be any confusion , we are not scammers , it says service charge before you pay anything . We are again sorry for the inconvenience but do not want you to feel you are where scammed , we wowould like to show you how a check says “service Charge” meaning tip included before you pay anything, please send us your email since your picture can’t be uploaded . Thank you again , sorry for inconvenience
