The worst service in the world, the waiter was rude, with a discriminatory attitude, they turned off the heaters for us to leave, the food was late to arrive, I would never return.

I think their policy does not make sense. They have a bottomless brunch and said only if 2 ppl are signing up for it then okay … else one person cannot alone have a bottomless brunch

I love coming here all the time. But last time I almost swallowed a piece of glass that was in my mojito. I am very disappointed for this happening as I almost swallowed it. I felt like the way I was taken care for this was just wrong and poorly.

Me and my friend were very excited to try this place. But we were very disappointed by the service. At the time it wasn’t busy and yet we got zero service. We had to constantly flag down a server for someone to take our order. No a great experience.

we ordered the pelmeni and Olivier salad, and beef stroganoff, chicken tabaka, and pork chop for mains. Stroganoff was great, the puff pastry on top was a cool add. Pork chop was tasty. The chicken itself was good but the sauce and gnocchi were way too salty. Overall the food was good, but very pricey for what you get.

The “free refill” for cocktails in exchange for an IG mention is gimmicky; they don’t actually give you a full refill, just a small plastic cup.

Love Sveta's restaurant. Very cozy romantic and homy! Food is great, tastes like at my home back in Russia- borsh, pelmeni, Chicken Kiev, napoleon- were the best; frozen drinks delicious! Service is great, the owner Sveta is always there to make sure that her customers are taken care for. I will be back for sure!
