    The food was decent and the ambience was cute (but small) but nothing can make up for bad service. Literally as my friend was ordering her food, our waiter walked away and had another guy serve us. It wasn’t just that one waiter either. Almost all the waiters had this weird and annoyed attitude at every table. I won’t be going back.

    The presentation of the food, drinks and deserts were out of this world! The owner was so humble, made sure to check in with every single table! He even gave us one of the teddy bears they had as decorations. Incredible experience, this will be our new regular spot.

    I was visiting NYC from Minnesota and wanted to find a perfect Valentine’s Day meal. I stumbled on Sveta and I’m sure glad I did! The food was outstanding, every plate we watched walk by we envied. But the service provided by the staff was the best I’ve had. The owner (didn’t catch his name) made sure we had a beverage at all times and was extremely personable to everyone in the restaurant. If I ever make my way back to town, I will be returning to see what beautiful arrangement is on the ceiling. 10/10

    Celebrating Galentine's Day at Sveta was an unforgettable experience for our group of 13. From the moment we walked in, the Valentine's Day theme enveloped us in a warm embrace, with stunning decorations that set the perfect backdrop for our celebration. The attention to detail in every heart-shaped adornment and the soft, romantic lighting created an atmosphere of love and friendship that was simply unmatched. A special thanks must go to Alan and his mother, Sveta, for making our night extraordinarily special. Their warmth and hospitality went above and beyond, making us feel not just welcomed, but truly cherished. Alan's attentive service and Sveta's heartfelt interactions added a personal touch that made our evening one to remember. It was evident that they both put their hearts into making Sveta not just a restaurant, but a place where memories are made. The staff, too, deserve commendation for their professionalism and warmth. Each member of the team made sure our evening was seamless, from the perfectly timed courses to the attentive but unobtrusive service that allowed us to enjoy our celebration without a single hiccup. The Valentine's decorations were a visual feast, with every corner of the restaurant thoughtfully adorned to celebrate love and friendship. The ambiance created by these decorations contributed significantly to the joy and laughter that filled our table throughout the evening. Celebrating Galentine's Day at Sveta was a decision we'll all cherish. The exquisite food, the beautiful setting, and, most importantly, the people behind Sveta made our gathering not just a dinner, but a celebration of friendship that we'll hold dear for years to come. Thank you, Alan, Sveta, and the entire staff, for an evening that was as perfect as it was because of your dedication and love.

My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommend this restaurant because when people work this hard to make their customers happy they deserve the best!

    If you're looking for a romantic spot in NYC, we highly recommend Sveta, a West Village gem that features contemporary Ukrainian and European cuisine and craft cocktails in a fun, creative and colorful atmosphere. For Valentine's Day they have a charming selection of "love potions". Try the "Love Me A Mystery" and the bartender will craft a unique drink and presentation around your favorite base liquor. The Vereniki (potato dumplings), Mini Chicken Kievs, and Passion Fruit and Mango Souffle with Macarons are all stellar, as is the outstanding service.

    Mediocre Ukrainian Food at best. Ambiance and decor is great. Service was good. Overall not really worth the hype but surprisingly very overcrowded and overbooked. If you choose to go here, go for 7 pm reservations, otherwise you might have to wait for your reservation for an hour.

    We made a reservation a month in advance to enjoy the Christmas cocktails. We were told we needed to order food in addition to the $25 cocktails so we ordered an app. The waiters kept saying that our reservation time would be limited since we’re not ordering entrees. This requirement is not listed anywhere on the website. It was extremely rude that they kept trying to rush us out multiple times even though we had made a reservation a month in advance. I understand people are waiting but we had a reservation. On top of that we were barely given 45 minutes to enjoy our drinks and food. The waiters just kept trying to clear our plates and drinks. One of the members of our party went to the bathroom and they made us clear the table even though we were waiting for him to come back. I will not be recommending this place to anyone. Terrible professionalism and service.
