    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 6 days agoWhat 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

    This place was honestly horrible, it looks very pretty and interesting, nice cocktails, food was good. But the ambiance is horrible, so RACIST, like people staring at you often🙄. We were there for literally an hour only and the waitress asked us if we wanted to check already, meanwhile there was a group of people there even before us that finished eating, but guess what,.. they were white, felt so uncomfortable the whole entire time. Make sure you read reviews before going to places, most of the time people are very honest about how they feel about visiting places. Will never go here again, and Definitely don’t recommend this restaurant they are way more better European restaurants, this one is Ukraine.

    This place is gorgeous! We arrived around 1pm on Friday and we had the whole restaurant to ourselves. It was nice and quiet. I ordered the Dove of Ukraine drink (only because I saw it all over IG) and it was delicious. Not worth $22 bucks but you are pretty much paying for the decorative add-ons. Also part of the proceeds are donated to Ukraine which I didn’t mind My husband ordered the stead and eggs. It came with fries with were seriously delicious. I ordered the French toast. It was thick challah bread made deliciously to order! Topped with fresh berries. I would totally recommend this place.

    It was okay. Service was fast as I would like. The coconut shrimp was a 10/10 the steak with fries was definitely not worth 32 dollars. That’s nuts. Overall I give it a 6/10. Drinks was not good either. But I enjoyed the scenery. In which they probably should scale back on

    Sveta is a beautiful restaurant. The manager Alan greeted me as I arrived. I celebrated my early birthday here on Saturday July 30. My waiter Sergio was great and very attentive. The decor is lovely for photo opportunities. Two of the guest in my party had to return what they ordered and there were no issues with replacement for my guest. At the end of the night the manager made sure to ask if I enjoyed everything and I felt that was very thoughtful of him. This restaurant is so lovely. I would definitely recommend anyone to go here. I will definitely go back for a date night.

    This restaurant cheats on customers. They jack up the price. In the menu and in the check, the amount is very different. The same dishes in one bill were of different prices, and the menu had a much lower price. Brazen thieves.

    Sveta is an absolute gem of a find! Ukrainian owned and operated - it is a unique and thoroughly delightful place to dine. Service was attentive and friendly, food is outstanding. They are fundraising to support the World Central Kitchen providing food relief efforts in the Ukraine through the sales of their frozen cocktails - these alone are worth a visit! Food is fabulous: had the Octopus and "Ukrainian sushi" appetizers which were delicious; main course: Beef Stroganoff and the Black Linguini Shrimp both of which were superb. Portions are generous but not overwhelming. HIGHLY recommend and we WILL return!

    Stunning drinks, beautiful ambience, and amazing food. What more could you want? Pro tip - get the potato dumplings, you won't be disappointed! Brought my friend here for a bachelorette brunch and it was absolutely perfect. Very insta-worthy. Florals and quirky design everywhere - total girly luxe vibes. Definitely recommend you snag a reso while you can, as this place is still very new and under the radar but I'm sure it will be difficult to get a res once more people find out about it.

    I won't spoil the surprises, but you MUST order one of their signature cocktails. The place is fun, funny, kitschy and serves up seriously good food. I hate to share it with the public, but it is a gem and they deserve the support. It is Ukrainian owned and the outside seating is limited, but a jungle of faux flowers and Ukrainian flags. Well worth the trip.
