Nestled on the corner of Connecticut and Florida Avenues, this inspired Russian restaurant and lounge is evocatively reminiscent of the era of the Tsars. The Russian-European elegance of the Russia House offers a uniquely warm and comfortable meeting place for anyone appreciative of its friendly and intimate coziness. It is the perfect meeting place for the true Washington socialite. The Russian-infused intercontinental cuisine pleases the most refined palate with such nouveau-traditional entrees as the Beef Stroganoff and the Chicken Kiev. Further true to tradition, the Russia House features an impressive selection of caviars and one of the largest vodka collections in Washington, D.C.

This was not our first visit and we look forward to going! We had a lovely server and ordered our flight of vodkas , bread and pelmini, which were all good! My Kiev was not cooked , so she took my whole dinner back and I sat and watched my husband eat his! !0 minutes later, I get another Kiev not cooked and she removed my whole dinner so I had nothing to eat!! Could have at least left me the potatoes and vegetables! WIthout asking brought a lava cake for dessert and the middle was cold! We will not be going back. Has to be a reason we were the only ones in the restaurant!

Food and staff delightful. The price was a bit high, so be prepared; this is not a "cheap date" sort of place.

while food and ambiance were good, was surprised that menu and price were fixed and not allowed to order food or drinks from the online menu for happy hour. Other patrons left as a result. It would be best if they let customers know ahead that the menu and price are fixed to avoid an awkward situation.

The Russia House was an amazing experience. The staff was wonderful and very friendly. The Taking Root Pinot Grigio from Moldova was the best wine I’d had in quite a while. The bread they brought was absolutely wonderful. The beef stroganoff and the chicken Kiev was truly amazing experiences each. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Even though we told the waitress, who was very accommodating, that we are on low-salt diets, the food was unbearably salty. It was also unbearably creamy. All the dishes were too rich. After the appetizer, I could not eat my entrée, so I brought it home. The dessert was just okay.

The food was more French than Russian. But, regardless, it was delicious. The ambiance was Russian style. The server was from the middle East and forgetful.
The caviar was delicious and served appropriately. We had a fabulous time.

The restaurant is beautiful and the decor amazing. The food is exceptional. However, the poor service and noise level marred the experience.

The service was initially quite good, but as the evening continued our server disappeared and so we couldn't ask for another glass of wine or for the food to be seasoned properly. One of us liked the food; the other found it bland and featureless. The décor needs updating -- the carpeting on the stairs is at least 10 years past replacement, and the wallpaper was peeling from the walls. If we hadn't come during restaurant week, it would have been an extremely expensive disappointment. Instead, it was only a moderately expensive disappointment.

Loved Russia House!! Went with my daughter who has spent time in Russia and was craving Russian food. It was a freezing night, and the warm ambiance of the cozy restaurant hit the spot. There was a gas fire in our 6 table room. Red Velvet cocktail was delicious, as were the pelmeni with mushroom sauce, the chicken Kiev and the pierogi. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed ger classic Baltika beer, and her Beluga vodka (which looked like a large shot). Food is adjusted for American taste - I thought it was delicious. Our server was super nice and explained all the offerings. It was a thoroughly lovely evening.

Started with a vodka sampler. Pierogies and the boar sausage for apps. Followed by the Salmon in puff pastry, Stroganoff and lamb. All was excellent as was the very attentive waitress. Did I mention like a 100 vodkas on the menu?

Our server was very good and courteous but the hostess and the server at the upstairs bar section were not friendly
Food was ok, drink was very good

I surprised my fiancé for his birthday with happy hour here, and we both loved it! The happy hour menu is really affordable, and the food is fantastic. The bartender even gave us two complementary birthday shots! We look forward to going again soon.
