This was my second visit to Kiev with my mother and our second time dining at Lipsky. We were really looking forward to dinner as our first experience back in 2013 was amazing. I don't know if this time it just didn't live up to what we remembered or if it fallen a notch. We were also curious as... read more

When you are in this restaurant its like you are in a different century. You feel you have to wear a nice suit with a hat. As for your lady, definitely a long dress. So the service and everything esle except the food is just perfect. Sadly the food was average. Price tag is a bit high. But who cares... More

Of course, we have to take into conbsideration the location of the place. In general - the food is good. Sometimes you can see some famouse face there. I remember the time, when in childhood i came from school with my mom there to east a tasty desert (that was before it was called Lipskiy Osobnyak)

Unfortunately also this restaurant suffered from the crisis. Replaced their trained waiters with farmers: i choose a $40 wine and the waiter pours it like water. "You dont let me taste first" and he says "trust me its good". Service cost them one star. Food was as usual great: had a crepe bag stuffed with mushrooms and a bit cold... More

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.

We made a reservation in Feb 14 during the troubles and were fairly surprised that we were the only two people in the restaurant the entire evening. All credit to the restaurant the honoured our reservation and provided very good service and food. The restaurant itself is gorgeous inside and has a great ambiance (even empty). It has a very...
