Set in historic Herndon, the Russia House Restaurant offers Russian hospitality and culinary excellence in all its details. The restaurant opened in July of 1992 by the friendly owners Ali and Homeyra Darugar, and together they created an atmosphere of aristocratic dining with classic cuisine, with the warm feeling that you are dining at your aristocratic grandmother’s table. Mrs. Darugar moved from Russia with her grandparents to Switzerland, where she learned to cook in her grandmother’s kitchen. She brought her great culinary talents here to the United States and created the exquisite menu and served as the head chef in the first few years the restaurant was opened. The restaurant features Russian, Continental and Georgian cuisine with a French flair.

We got overpriced bottle of vine - and usually it is over the store price in restaurants but not so much
We got 10$ bottle of wine for 40$
Seems pretty overpriced
Other then that experience was pleasant and food was good

My wife and I have been going to the Russia House for many years and have always been very pleased with the friendliness of the service and quality of the food. I highly recommend it, as even though it was packed, if did not seem crowded.

My filet was delicious, very tender (cut it with a butter knife!) and cooked perfectly. The rest of my food was also quite good, except the Bearnaise was mildly cold. The dessert likely came out of a box with a couple dollops of spray whipped cream. My problem with Russia House was mostly with the service and organization of the restaurant. Clearly family-run, would it be asking too much for the servers to dress up a little? Looks like they were working too hard, could have spent some time on grooming and attire! Also, the menu was a bit dirty and the bar area was a mess. Our table was crowded over in the corner. All of this very much took away from the (mostly) delicious food.

Charming. Personal. Unpretentious. Small. Familial. All this puts you at ease. The food delicious. The music classical. Everything combines in the happiest manner.

The restaurant has a lot of charm and the service was excellent. The food was good but nothing special. The Chicken Kiev tended to be dry and the salmon was okay but not outstanding. My friend and I shared an apple strudel and the crust was just too heavy and it lacked flavor. I doubt that we'll go back which is disappointing because I really liked the place itself and the people were very nice.

After a not-so-great day, we needed something comforting. We couldn't have done better. Right from the start, we were embraced both figuratively and literally. The owners welcomed us like we've never experienced in other restaurants. The service and food exceeded expectations. If you think you don't like Russian food, check out the menu on their website. There is something for everyone. If you like good food and good service, give it a try.

What a lovely, quiet evening at the Russia House on a busy Friday Night in Northern VA. Accommodations; vodka choices; menu suggestions; wine list; service and knowledge all exceeded our expectations. We look forward to dining there again.
