Right beside Carnegie Hall and a couple of blocks from Central Park, our lunch was very good and the service was impeccable. We were 30 mins early and walked right in... The tea service is very cool.
Very good food and nice ambiance. Very good value for money in such a classy restaurant.
Outstanding, we were treated like royalty, we asked to go upstairs to see the bear, and was taken straight away, the food was the best in New York,
It was a wonderful experience, the staff were very hospitable and the food and tea were great.
Everyone who visits New York must definitely give this tea room a visit as the decor, ambience, service and food were surprisingly good and memorable!

Loved everythiang about this elegant tea room. Meal was done to perfection
Good value for money and good service. Quality of food was good. Memorable interior.
Fantastic service - fantastic food = all round a great experience and one very worthwhile experiencing if you are visiting NYC
This was my second time here. Every time I come to New York, I'll want to dine here. Great service, very attentive and respectful. I tried the ravioli. It was much, much better than the stuff we used to eat out of cans when I was a kid. :-D
A very enjoyable tour. We had a set menu, which had a good selection. The food was very good and we enjoyed the whole experience including the atmosphere and decor.
We had a lovely lunch and would have done it again if we had more time.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding.
It´s a must.
I can not rate this highly enough. 5 stars does not do this experience justice! The surroundings are sumptuous, the staff are attentive and world class (a little brusque but just what you'd expect from fine dining) and the food!! Oh my...the food!!! Without being an exaggeration: the best meal EVER!
well what can i say this was out of this world loved it from start to finish a must.
The experience is great and so is the food.
However, the booking time given does not mean you time you will be seated... You need to give your name and wait until a table is free.
Lunch at the tea room was a true oasis of peace and tranquility in the chaos of Manhattan. The service was superb, the food was great and the atmosphere simply amazing. I think it ended up being one of the true high points of our visit.
The Russian Tea Room is all that it is said to be. The décor is beautiful. The staff, very professional, and the food excellent. We took other's advice from Yelp and asked, after our meal, to see the second floor. The manager graciously took us up there to see the Polar Bear fish tank and the Faberge egg tree. They were nice but the best thing about the second floor is the wall and ceiling décor. Absolutely stunning. It is definitely worth a trip at an affordable price. Just don't order more than your set menu.
Absolutely wonderful experience, the only stop on my New York trip where I was truly spoiled.

This was an elegant meal. The food was fabulous and we will return here on our next trip to New York City.
Very nice place with beautiful people. The food is amazing! The cheesecake is the best I've ever tasted! Troika tee was also delicious. Staff friendly.
fantastic - so sorry for all the devastation from hurricane sandy
A must do in New York. Great food, service, and atmosphere. Staff were excellent. Would return again!!!
Lovely lunch and our waiter Georgie made it even better as he was very personable. We got to see Carnegie Hall which is right next door which was an added plus.
