The Russian House
Great new experience with traditional Russian cuisine. Staff was great and would recommend for anyone to try.
I loved this place! Such a gem with authentic food and great service
Such a fun place. A little chaotic, in a good way. Food is solid.
Great food. Great atmosphere!
My favorite place in Austin!! It's a whole experience! The service there is of such high quality. They take the time to make recommendations and cater to your preferences. And the food is phenomenal. 10/10 recommend!
Great food and service
They did NOT honor our reservation. We were rejected at the door, without any notice in advance, because they are overbooked. They even blamed me for making reservation in a short time ahead.
Me and my fiends then had to look for another restaurant in the new year eve, a time apparently all other restaurant have no availability.
This does harm the image of both the restaurant and OpenTable. A proper follow up on this issue is expected.
Everything was great! The at-home feeling is a nice touch.
We 5 went on New Years Eve and it was great. Russian ambiance throughout the place as well as the food and of course vodka!
This is our special “ go to “ place when we want something different and fun. We have NEVER been disappointed there. Now the noise was a bit more than normal (you usually can have a quiet dinner there) but it was New Years Eve and they had children there with a DJ and it was just great!
Kitchen timing, service, tv video game audio motif, all need work!
Great service great food great place! Will go again!
A nice little place with a good vibe. Be willing to step out of your comfort zone and try some different foods.
Great Russian food. Felt like we were sitting in a Soviet Era dining room. Desserts were especially delicious!
An amazing and unique experience. Hands-down one of my favorite restaurants in Austin now! I can’t wait to come back, sure the environment and decor is definitely Soviet Russia but the food and drinks completely make up for that. It was such an interesting and cool experience to go somewhere so different and I really enjoyed myself
I will definitely be back! Fabulous service, Sergei was amazing; food was different, but in all the best ways!
The Ambiance and the amazing food. One of the best dining experiences I've ever had. highly recommend the Russian House.
Celebrating birthday! Excellent overall experience, seated in private room, attentive service.
Unique-100’s of infused vodka’s -different dining experience-authentic Russian food and people. Avoid the “rush”
Hour for best service/attention -by 8:30, all tables were full. Liked Mushroom Soup, Lamb shank, Ukrainians Sola, Russian Rabbit drink! Made with infused Jalapeño and carrot vodka (all vodkas are hand made by Chef Vladimir! Dining area is separate from bar area-dining area is made to feel like your sitting in Russian Grandmas house-fun experience, must try if your a vodka lover ($6 per shot) made with Russian Vodkas (which “felt” like a different drinking experience-the vodka is kinder to you-I wasn’t buzzed, just felt relaxed and absolutely no feelings of “geez what did I drink” in morning) hubby had porter Russian Beer-he liked a lot
The Russian House is now a new favorite of mine. So many infused vodkas to choose from and the food is fantastic. The ambiance of the restaurant is perfect! Feels like you're in babushkas kitchen!
Definitely a unique spot. Their claim to fame is definitely the 150+ infused vodkas, which are delicious. I recommend not venturing out too much with crazy dishes. The stuffed cabbage, meat soup, and beef dish were very good.
No one came to serve us. Sat around for 15min. What a waste. I guess I might have try another time
Not good. Awful food.
The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant.
Fantastic food, vodka, and very unique dining experience.
Very authentic and delicious. Ambiance is full of antiques and music that transport you back in time.
Excellent service, excellent food. If you are looking for a “Russian” experience as well as authentic cuisine; this is the place!
Great food and service was amazing. Will visit again
Great food, unique dining experience! We are foodies and truly enjoyed it.. the borscht is amazing, caviars and the chicken!!! It’s a must try and we can’t wait to go back!
Charming place and great ambiance. Russian tv and music, dimmed lightning, russian servers....
However, our server was not hospitable - wireless earbuds in one ear, very impatient, very short, interrupted my guest multiple time and did not listen to his concerns.
Came for a business lunch and I would not bring anyone back here for business. The server was rude and made the interaction awkward.
Service was excruciatingly slow. Wrong drink and food was brought. Table was absolutely filthy. Reached out via FB and recieved no response.
Friendly service, great food, the vodka infusions are always amazing, highly recommended!
Tour de force of Russian and Eastern European specialties served in a very authentic environment. Literally made me feel like I was in a Russian grandma’s kitchen being served by her lovely granddaughter. The waitress clearly had love for the various dishes being served and pointed out both what to eat and how it was to be eaten in a way that made this one of my favorite meals ever. The interplay of comfortable and familiar elements with more unusual regional specialities from Georgia or Siberia really made the meal exciting and delicious.
We wanted to try something different and were very glad we stopped by. Food and drinks were very good and we were seated almost immediately after arriving. We are looking forward to dinner there again soon
Valerie was fantastic. She gave us a very memorable family experience for my husband’s birthday???
Th food here is great! We tried 4 diff entrees, plus several appetizers. The vegetable borscht was amazing! The drinks are fun-my college kids loved trying diff flavored vodkas. The noise level is pretty loud. If u r hard of hearing that could b a problem. Unfortunately to cap off a great dinner, my husband was leaving the restroom & 1 of the young lady servers ran straight into him & spilled soup onto his shirt! Barely an apology, but thank goodness the shirt was not permanently stained!
Pleasant surroundings visually. Nice presentation of food. Very good server. But all of this was lost on the overcooked, dry food that all 3 of us experienced and the VERY long wait for our food. We asked for iced tea and they didn’t have any! They offered an overly sweet fruit drink instead which tasted like Kool-Aid. I wish this experience had been better because they have a nice menu.
The Russian House in Austin, Texas is charming with authentic cuisine. We flew in from Arizona to visit my parents. I had been to the Russian House twice before and selected this restaurant to treat my Dad to a birthday dinner. We made a reservation in advance and had a phenomenal time.
The Russian House always provides a wonderful atmosphere with top-notch service and amazing food. You will not find better cuisine in Austin.
The valentines day dinner lives up to high standards that Russian House regularly defines. Despite there being a busy flow of people, I never felt like I was having to talk over anyone or struggle to hear my date. As always, the food was outstanding. I ordered a few things which I wasn't familiar with, but I trusted the chefs to deliver quality and they did not disappoint. Finally, the fruit/dessert bar cannot be understated. Just a constant, copious supply of fresh sweets.
The food at Russian house was wonderful, the staff was very friendly and I walked away feeling like I got more than my monies for.
