The food was delicious. The workers were helpful when ordering. Highly recommend. Wouldn't use Viator again because it was Restaurant Week and I feel they should have know that since they guarantee the lowest rates.
I booked for a friend and I to enjoy pre-theatre treat and catch up. We arrived to a warm welcome and were seated in a lovely position. We commenced with cocktails and ordered our starters and main. We asked for the main dish to be delayed a bit as my guest prefers to eat slow which they gladly accommodated. We enjoyed all the dishes and they even replaced a meat dish that was a little dry for my guests taste, no questions asked. Dessert and coffee rounded off a lovely experience in beautiful surroundings with good service.
This was a great experience. We husband myself and 18 year old daughter enjoyed trying some Russian favourites wth a twist. Well decorated with attentive staff and good food. It's a small choice on the set menu so you need to be able to go with the flow. Beware that any extras are expensive three iced teas cost us 33!
I was AMAZING!! took my sister for her 40th birthday and from the moment we walked in we were in AAAhhh. The place was amazing, the butlers the head waiters the front desk people they were just so friendly and paid attention to you pretty close. Even to get out of the table to use the rest room or to just stretch your legs the come over and move the table for you. How awesome!! AND the FOOD WOW! I had there salad, salmon meal then Tera mousse for dessert was delicious and my sister had the chicken with the washroom in some sauce and mash potatoes and the cheese cake. I could not leave anything behind for it was to good! I look forward to going back!!
Lovely place, nice atmosphere and staff. Food was alright. Overall a pleasant fancy dining experience which was not overly uncomfortable. We felt welcome even though we were not dressed up and would probably have felt more comfortable at a hot dog stand. The staff were welcoming and friendly and at no time did we feel we should not be there which I feared we might. Other customers in there also had children and were dressed in jeans so don't be put off by the fancy reputation.
