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.
If I could give them more stars I would! Everything is always amazing there- the food, ambience, and the service is personal and beyond exceptional. We LOVE this place!
One of our favorite restaurants. Always great quality and a terrific environment to enjoy conversation. Owners always go above and beyond to insure a wonderful dining experience.
The Russia House food was incredible. It is a shame the pandemic is hurting all businesses. This is a great place to try if you need a night out.
As always the owners and the lovely restaurant is just wonderful. So many delicious choices to pick from and each choice is so tasty.
Probably the best restaurant I have ever been to. Everything was amazing. The service was excellent and the food was so delicious.
Food was fantastic, service was excellent - will definitely visit again!
Outstanding food, service and atmosphere for a nice experience. The owners/hosts are most gracious and make you feel very special.
The food was very good! Our borscht was one of the best that we've had. The restaurant is perfect for cozy gatherings and conversation. Service was excellent; we will be back!
Excellent food, ambiance and warm welcoming. Highly recommended!
Everyone needs to experience a quiet, romantic dinner at Russia House! The atmosphere, the gracious hosts, the attentive service, and the food all add up to a very special experience. The Borscht, trout, beef stroganoff and pistachio cheesecake were excellent. The cocktails and vodkas were interesting and delicious. Overall, a perfect evening. We will return.
As a treat, the full menu was available the day after Valentines Day so unlike in past years when there is a special menu we were able to try some different items off the menu. I had the duck breast with sour cherries and my wife had the beef stroganoff. Both were simply delicious and reminded us of the time we had these dishes prepared for us in St. Petersburg, Russia several years ago. Dessert consisted of hazelnut napoleon cake and apple strudel. Service was a little slow due to holiday but good and the atmosphere was relaxing and not rushed which allowed us to enjoy our Valentines Day experience.
Eat there...it's very good..best tenderloin steak with the 2 sauces in the DC area...been going there for 25 years
It has been many years since I've been to this restaurant and Valentine's Day was a poor choice to revisit it. Not only was there a prix fix meal, which was not advertised or even told to me when I confirmed the reservation, but it appeared that the owner & his wife were the wait staff. We literally had to grab someone passing by the table to get drinks & food. We gave up on my husband's order of a dessert coffee & just got a check. The appetizer was a ravioli, not exactly Russian fare as I had planned looking at their menu online. The entree was nothing to write home about, very mediocre for a $56 pre fix of appetizer, entree & desert. I regretted not cooking and left with a bitter taste in my mouth.
The Russia House is a wonderful restaurant for a special occasion. The food, service and atmosphere are all top notch. I highly recommend The Russia House.
Great experience for our first time dining there. The caviar and pate were excellent as was the beef stroganoff. For dessert I recommend the cream puffs.
Warm and classy with great food. What more could you ask for?
As always, it was a delightful experience.
The ambience is quiet, relaxed & elegant, with a lot of Russian artifacts about.
Even the iced tea had a special flavor that was really extra good.
The French onion soup was the best I think I’ve ever had! They told me they add port wine to the broth, and it does make all the difference!
We go here once a year for either one of our birthdays &/or Valentines Day. And usually get the beef stroganoff. The stroganoff wasn’t quite up to the usual excellence this time. The beef was over cooked and not a lot of flavor. But I am comparing it to their usual amazing dish! Anywhere else it would have been considered still very good. As always the vegetables were fresh and cooked perfectly.
They brought me a dessert with a candle in it because it was my birthday which was a nice touch. I had a cake with hazelnut in it that again, was very good.
Best restaurant in Northern Virginia! I come every time I'm in town.
The owners are a husband and wife who are always very gracious and grateful. The caviar and Russian Standard vodka is a special treat! We are from out of town and must come here whenever we are in town.
Amazing experience!! Great food and the owner’s were terrific!!!
Great place with wonderful hosts.
