It’s always a wonderful experience to enjoy a family-owned restaurant, and even more so a local one offering a unique cuisine. The food at Russia House was authentic and delicious, and the service was attentive and friendly as well. A Herndon gem!
A nice meal.
Folks who took care of us did a nice job.
Very attentive and kind service. The food was good (not amazing as the price would suggest). Suspect the pandemic was hard on this business. The menu seemed a little limited and the local seemed a little tired. The owning couple make this a very pleasant experience but otherwise overpriced.
Great food and atmosphere. Owners are terrific hosts
Food is consistently superb here. The dining experience is quiet, relaxing, and personable. One of our absolute favorite restaurants!
Wonderful food and proprietors
We celebrated my Mother’s 86th birthday. The Russia House hold’s a special place in our hearts, as it was one of my late father’s and mother’s favorite place. The owner’s were so kind and soliciting to our family. The food was absolutely fantastic! We enjoyed the Filet of Mignon, the Beef Ravioli, the Duck with sour cherries, and the Shrimp skewers. All of it was fabulous! The warm baked rolls and pâté began our meal on a superb note, accompanied by the a very nice bottle of red wine. I love a restaurant that has Bernaise Sauce!
Just exceptional in all ways! We enjoyed it so much!
Haven't been there in a while and it was excellent. Service was classic without being overbearing. Food was great. Very reasonable corkage.
The prices have gone up considerably and it is not mentioned on website. The menu is limited due to Covid. The grilled shrimp dish is overly salted. My daughters shrimp was very salty. The stuffed cabbage was sweet and sour which I was told after ordering. I didn’t mind sweet and sour but it was so pungently sour. My mouth tasted like vinegar after I finished. The price for two stuffed cabbage was ridiculous. The service was very slow. This is the only restaurant I’ve been to since Covid that has used the pandemic for inadequate service and food quality.
Great food and service. One of the best restaurant that me and my wife have been to in a while. Highly recommend.
Dining at Russia House is like being a guest in the gracious home of Ali and Homerya Darugar who own and operate the restaurant. Every detail from the Russian antiques to the to the art on the walls, to the chandeliers, to the crisp table clothes reminds one of a grander time.
The food is simply wonderful. Everything we have tried there has been good, but we love the beef stroganoff so much that we rarely stray. Homerya is a skilled bartender and Ali is always their to recommend the perfect wine.
Stop whatever you are doing and make a reservation at this gem in charming, historic downtown Herndon. Perhaps try one of their famous wine dinners as an introduction, but do not miss the regular menu!
Loved the food- osetra caviar, onion soup, house martini, chocolate martini, chocolate moose, stroganoff and more. Service was excellent!!
Wonderful French Onion soup as a starter followed by perfectly cooked scallops. My husband looked like a cave man devouring his lamb chops.
Celebrated a birthday, and it was a wonderful time! The food was amazing as always (have the lamb chops if they are the special when you visit). The service is top notch, and if you don't feel like family when you arrive, you will when you leave.
A favorite of the whole family.
This is the first time we have been to the Russia House restaurant since they moved from their fancier place across the street. We were a bit disappointed in the down market venue and very disappointed that there was no convenient wheelchair access. The food, however, was still very good although they didn't have the rather special Caesar salad that they used to prepare at your table.
Great place overall but noticeably undermanned, likely due to COVID-19, resulting in slow service. Food and spirits on the pricey side for the type of restaurant.
Superb food and service!
They have the best Beef Stroganoff and Chicken Kiev!!
The owners are an absolute delight.
The Russia House is a wonderful restaurant with great cocktails an the best filet ever. It will melt in your mouth. I highly recommend this restaurant for date night, a party or a get together with friends.
Best Filet in DC. Ali and Homeyra are the best. Go there and enjoy.
Everything was delicious and amazing staff. This really gave me a great experience on Russian cuisine since I am in my second year of studying Russian language. Cocktails were amazing but doesn't beat the delicious and warm borscht.
We always enjoy The Russian House. It is our go to place for all special occasions.
Wonderful evening and felt very safe with all Covid protections in place. Everyone LOVED their meals and service was impeccable! Would definitely go back!
Great high quality restaurant with very good food and service.
The food was great and the service was wonderful. I loved the decor, very traditional Russian. We will go again!!
Fantastic service. Everyone was very attentive. We had the duck breast and Russian dumplings. Both made your mouth sing with delight. Beautiful setting. Highly recommend going there. One will not be disappointed. We have been there many many times and they are able to maintain a very high standard in providing an amazing experience.
It seems like I've only gone here for special occasions, birthdays, NYEve, retirements, but that is not to say that it isn't great for any time dining. The ambiance is welcoming, the service excellent, and the food is never disappointing! I will say that their borscht seems more like a stew, which is different from any other version I've had. I cannot imagine anyone ever sending food back because the steaks are prepared perfect every time, no matter your preference. It's a plus-plus-plus experience all around!
Excellent food and service - we have gone there twice for special occasions and enjoyed each time.
Fantastic service and the food was excellent!
The food was wonderful. We started with salad and flavored vodka. My companion had rack of lamb which was perfectly cooked and I had Beef Stroganov which was delicious
One of our absolute favorites. They never disappoint.
Always lovely. Rare gem in Herndon.
Very nice menu, and friendly staff. I would return again happily.
Russia House's return to the restaurant scene is both welcome and pleasant. Operating on a slightly reduced (disposable, paper) menu, you'll still find many favorites and some new additions. Socially distant tables, masks (for staff at all times, for customers when not eating/drinking) and other safety precautions are in place. If you are going out to eat, stop by the Russia House and enjoy some old favorites - or discover new ones!
Lovely experience...service was attentive...food was excellent.
Great food - but not cheap (about $30 per entree) - still it is worth it for special occasions but can't afford to dine their every night (wish I was wealthy enough to). The owners are very nice and attentive. I will go back for another time out in a couple months, maybe to impress my parents.
The food and service were excellent. Fewer selections due to current circumstances. Plenty of social distancing. I would recommend it.
This restaurant is consistently outstanding. Great food and service.
