Interior very noble and pleasant. I was here 20 years ago for the first time. Food Russian, very good, perhaps 8 of 10. The place to go for a business dinner, or perhaps with your new girlfriend. I love it.

The food was haute cuisine at it's best. Nicely balanced flavor, textures, and colors. I had the deer and veal pelmeni (Siberian ravioli). They had been cooked in a mushroom broth and at each bite, there was just the right squirt of flavorful mushroom broth. They were in a light, but unmistakably Russian dough. Then I had pigeon with sweetbreads... More

ZDL is an amazing place, located in a former Masonic lodge built in 1889. It has two dining areas that both have large open fires, with the main hall being very impressive (see the pictures others have posted). What we liked most was the very attentive service, something that is rare in Moscow. ZDL is also one of the few... More

Loved this restaurant. The food was delicious and well-prepared. It's modernized traditional Russian cuisine. The service was outstanding, and not only by Moscow standards. I was really impressed how friendly the waitstaff was, especially given that my friends and I were dressed quite casually. Think this is the only restaurant I've been to in Moscow with its own sommelier, too.... More

The venue is very nice. However, it lacks atmosphere. We went last Saturday at 8.30 pm and only one table with two guests wearing t-shirts and jeans were there. By the time we left, another table but with very underdressed people too. We were wearing sports jackets. The waitress was friendly but the Sommelier had an attitude that was not... More

Inspiring interior with lots of history behind it. Manager Kirill was nice enough to give us a tour. Beautifully crafted and delicious Russian dishes with a chef's twist. Service is respectable and delicate. Ask the sommelier for a good choice of wine.

Had a good time, delicious food, beautiful interiors in a historical place of old Moscow . Service is great and selection is different. You can enjoy cacao with natural raspberry squeeze that gives it really unusual taste.

I have just been to see that changed after one year renovation. Simply - THIS IS G R E A T !! Well done Mr Architect :)) It is so well combined - ancients wooden decorations with some minimalists white accents. Wow :) Menu does not make you mouth watering while reading. Very short.

You will feel like you have been transported to another era in this beautifully appointed restaurant with the indoor architecture of another era. The costumed waiters showed us the ultimate care and professionalism, from the presentation of the menu to the serving of the beverages and delivery of the dishes with flair and unobtrusive subtlety at once, not a very...
