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.

Having read the reviews of this restaurant on this forum we decided to go for it and we were not disappointed. We had reservations but the place was almost empty. I don't know if this was because it was a weekday or what but we were surprised by that. One could think a restaurant wasn't very good if there was... More

We ate here on a Saturday night after reading the good reviews - we were shocked it was so quiet in there as the service & food were outstanding (the staff helped us pick our meal as the choice is so varied!) & the decor really makes you feel like you've stepped back in time......in a good way!
