About the restaurant
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. PLEASE CALL RUSSIA HOUSE DIRECT- 703-787-8880 TO MAKE RESERVATIONS ON VALENTINE'S DAY.

The Monocle is the closest restaurant to the Capitol building, United States Senate and Union Station. Established in 1960, The Monocle is not only known as a Washington institution, but also for its fine American cuisine-served by a professional and friendly team of servers. You can always count on being served great crab-cakes, grilled fresh fish, prime steaks and chops, while enjoying the powerful political scenery. The private Federal Room is a Washington classic for private parties and political fundraisers. The Wine Room is a cozy room for your intimate private birthday dinner of six to ten. Cheers!

The lovely day was made better with a nice meal on their patio. Our business express lunch included a generous salad and sandwich. The biscotti cookies "to go" were nice, but it made me feel like they wanted us to leave before I was ready.

First time visit and loved it! We tried two pizza’s: the supreme and the mushroom-truffle and both were fantastic! (I couldn’t stop eating the mushroom one) Their pizza crust is one of the best we’ve ever had and the server was very attentive without being intrusive. Overall a 10+ visit and we’ll be back!

NYAJ has always been one of my favorite places to eat. I have not been in a couple of years and I was disappointed. It’s no longer the thriving place it used to be to be. The service was lacking and no spirit of teamwork and every man for themselves. We were not checked on and the personality of our server was flat. We had to ask someone else for a refill and that seemed to be an inconvenience and that was because our server only robotically came to either take order, bring drink, bring food, bring check. The prices have inflated drastically and I am sure between the lack of service, spirit, and food hike…why I see an empty restaurant on a Saturday night. I rated higher than I should have.

We visited for an anniversary dinner and the entire experience was spectacular. Our waiter, Gizaw, was warm, attentive, and kind. He was also incredibly accommodating of my food allergies. We were made to feel like we were the only people in the room, even on a Saturday night. We ordered the arugula and field greens salads as starters; the salmon and pork as mains; and closed with Italian poached pears. Everything was absolutely phenomenal, and the fish, in particular, may the best I’ve ever had. Between the delicious food, the perfect atmosphere, and the stellar service, I couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Paul, our waiter, was very good - he was attentive without being overbearing and kept our water filled and asked periodically how we were doing. The food was very good - the three of us shared an appetizer and each had an entree. Our daughter would have preferred dessert too, but her parents were too full. We went at 3:00 on a Sunday which is our usual time for a Sunday meal - restaurants tend to not be crowded from lunch or dinner. It was a great experience.
