The only good thing was the view of the water and the cocktails. The waiter was awful. He was too busy watching the boardwalk traffic and smoking to be concerned with his diners. 50 minutes to get two kabobs. Ridiculous. No water was offered and we couldn't get his attention to request some. The food was passable, but not what... More

Best 4-course lunch prix fixe in NYC! Super high quality, old country cuisine in a gorgeous setting. The service is a little slow getting started, but attentive throughout. For what you get, it's also we'll priced.

This cafe on Brighton Beach is so famous in the Russian community as a gem of cultural food, but I see no reason for such distinction. I dined here on Mother's Day 2015 as part of a family get together. We sat outside and had a table of 7 people. First sign that things were not going to go well... More

I was attracted to the place at first, as it had a nice view on the sea and it felt authentic. I cannot say that the staff was the friendliest on earth but that may be due to the cultural context of the restaurant. There was no price for the Varenki potato (kind of Russian potato raviolis). I was charged... More

First time on the boardwalk. Our Russian coworker took us down to show around. We choose to eat at this Russian Cafe. Very good seafood according to others. I had the duck salad. It was very good. Sat outside. Great view of the water.

Took the family and parents here. If you are looking for a great Russian cafe for lunch, try Tatiana. The soups were all great, the salads were also very good. The service was also good especially considering it was a Sunday afternoon in winter, in Brighten Beach!

Horrible food that is not worth the prices they charge. Burger for which they charged $17 was on a stale crumbling bun. The attitude of the server was, very Russian - inconsiderate at best. Poor value, bad food, bad service.
