This delightful and authentic restaurant is run by a dear husband and wife team who sincerely care about their diners. I love the beef strogenoff and my wife always orders the stuffed cabbage as it is the best anywhere in her opinion. The many choices of flavored vodka are also favorites as well as the reasonably priced cavier appetizer. So... More

Could not be more impressed. Tastefully decorated, quiet, and comfortable. The owners pay close personal attention to each customer. The food was wonderful. Don't pass up the borscht. The stroganoff was outstanding. The butterflied fillet cooked at the table is no longer on the menu, but the owner offered to prepare if we asked. My wife had the cabbage rolls,... More

This was my second time here, first time at the new digs, which are very cozy. Almost like eating in someone's home. Four of us ate here for a late dinner (9pm). The service was primarily by the owners I believe, and it was very friendly and excellent. The food was also good, especially the cream puff dessert. My Georgian... More

Our party of 10 arrived at 6 pm. There were only a few other customers there. We placed our orders but food did not arrive for well over an hour. The wait staff occasionally brought excuses but no food. It finally arrived and while not memorable, was OK. My borscht soup was lukewarm, suggesting it had been sitting for some... More

The food is heavy, and I haven't been there in years, but this was the place that introduced me to chocolate vodka and I'll never forget it because of that one fact. I need to go back, but I was never crazy about potatoes... but if you go, ask for chocolate vodka and experience a very good dessert vodka.

My husband and I went to the Russia House in Herndon last night for his birthday celebration. Their new facility which is across the street from the old location is bright and beautifully appointed. The staff greeted us warmly and took very good care of us. Our appetizer was an array of Russian treats and very good. We had the... More

The atmosphere and service was extraordinary, the food was tasty with good size portions. The only negative was when it came time to pay and they didn't want to accept our Groupon because we made the reservation through open table. Of course the fine print on the Groupon says reservations required and then it take you to their website and... More

We came here on a quiet monday night right after Valentine's, so the place was rather deserted. However, the food was top notch and the service extremely friendly. We had a terriffic time and will certainly be back.
