This is the perfect place for a phenomenal meal in a restaurant with ambient design. I have eaten her before and this experience was as good as before. The food is some of the best I have ever tasted and if you love great food you must visit this establishment. I this restaurant was in London/Paris/New York you would have... More

Really fancy restaurant in Kiev. I was hesitant in trying Ukrainian cuisine at first but food was wonderfully prepared and top marks to the staff, really something extraordinary given the difficulty in finding English-speaking waiters in restaurants. Beautiful atmosphere although prices are particularly higu, but worth the experience.

Only one other restaurant in Kiev sparks my eyes, Pantagruel. Lipsky is classy, true service and the dishes celestial from the visualization to the taste. Excellent service.

We were the only guests in the restaurant even though it was Saturday evening. It is a beautiful place inside and out. The service and food was alright. The white wine cooked rabbit was very good and the wine list was very long. It was a bit pricey.

This restaurant will take your breath away. The ornate design, the huge, heavy leather tomes which serve as menus (every page authentically stamped and signed in a hark back to Soviet times). The exquisite (and expensive as I learned) wine list and the personal but not overbearing service which makes you feel all 'Downton Abbey' as they present the food... More

We were keen to try this authentic Ukrainian restaurant as the reviews had been very enthusiastic. We chose a Friday evening and had expected a fairly busy restaurant ,with live music.Sadly,the place was almost deserted and there was no music. The dining room was beautiful and luxurious. We were given an excellent table and the setting was most romantic. The... More

Good: Very nice location, had live beautiful background music (3 women singing and playing violin) and good food. Bad: Our waiter was rude and far below the standard we expected. Wine list is horribly expensive, we could not find a single bottle of wine below $50 US.
