Loved the place. A bit of cold war mixed in with Austin culture. Most important, food is excellent.

Food at the Russian House was good, the service excellent and the ambiance typical of 6th street Austin. The cost was reasonable resulting in good value. Recommend a visit for a causal dinner.

Excellent food and the House-infused vodkas are amazing. The pelmeni was amazing.

Good authentic Russian food. No complaints about the quality and taste. The Gluten-Free menu needs some careful scrutiny.

It was ok. Table Service was authentic and friendly. The menu offers a large selection of dishes and delicacies to choose from. My only complaint was that the food was served luke warm. Noticeably so, even after a few vodka shots. While I understand kitchens get busy and stuff happens, skewerd meat should be served hot. Still.. I would go back to try other dishes.

The lamb kabobs where like meatloaf on a stick. I guess I should have read the menu better. I really was not impressed with the food or price.

They cancelled my open table reservation when I arrived at the restaurant, so we had to sit in the bar area. There is no table service in the bar area, so I had to go back and forth picking up my food for my family. They also didn’t give me my open table points. I had to complain to open table to get those posted. Food was good, but i cancelled my valentines reservation with them.

The lighting is a bit too bright in my opinion, but everything else during dinner was fantastic!
Afterwards, we wanted to stay in the bar/lounge area, but after 20 minutes, we could not get a drink, so we left.

We really enjoyed ourselves. The food and VODKA was AMAZING! The caviar and vodka combo was a personal favorite. Regarding service, out waitress was super helpful and gave a lot of personal attention. The restaurant itself was not very busy but it was definitely a gem of an experience. Definitely recommend.

My husband and I discovered the Russian House the weekend we moved our daughter into her dorm room at UT in 2014. We go back every time we come to Austin. We've celebrated our daughter's 21 birthday here with several of her friends gone with just another couple and even had a date night. This latest time we met the parents of our daughter's boyfriend. Every time we have had a wonderful time and so the people we have gone with. We like to order family style. The more people in the group the greater number of dishes you can try. I highly recommend The Russian House.

We had a great time and enjoyed the live klezmer music. Waitress was very friendly. Many members of waitstaff are native to Russia or Ukraine. Decorated to feel like a Russian home in the 60's or 70's. Cozy. Portions are small for the price. Great selection of vodka. Vegetarian friendly.

Awesome food, ambiance, drinks and live music! Very special combination that makes for a memorable and fun evening!

The menu is extensive. And perhaps russian food in general lacks flavor. The appetizers were flat. The entree was not satisfying. I have been there a few times. Not going back.

Such a great little place! Delicious food, and even better as it is something different from the many variations on Tex-Mex and BBQ. The food is great, the atmosphere is fun and cozy, and the staff is very friendly. It is like being transported to a Slavic grandmother's lace and tchotchke filled dining room.

We had such a lovely dinner in a rather private alcove. The wait staff was attentive and the food was delicious.

Worst service I’ve ever had. We had to negotiate our bill when the server brought the wrong order. Super weird experience.

The menu has many choices and the waiter was very helpful in explaining the many unfamiliar dishes. Everything we tried was excellent.
