“Fancy preparty bar with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

While you can definitely dine at White Rabbit, it is more famous for its cocktails by the award-winning bar crew. The food is a typical European fusion with a few Asian intermissions, but as every fashionable pre-party place in Moscow, the Rabbit shines with its cocktails. Good place for a date, make sure to book a table with the square view.

“Breathtaking view and mouthwatering food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

It is one of the best restaurants I have visited (food and view combination) in the world. It is absolutely must visiting when you are in Moscow! It is probably the best panoramic restaurant in the city with a delightful contemporary/molecular cuisine. It won the best restaurant in Moscow with the above average price list category in 2012. The restaurant itself is situated on the 16th floor with the breathtaking views to the downtown. We liked all the food we ordered: very well prepared, particularly tasty Thurin with goose livers with truffle and Madeira jelly or mouthwatering goose fillet...Do not be surprised to see many posh Muscovites with girls-models, which is quite common in good and expensive places in Moscow..Even though the restaurant's atmosphere is very cosy and relaxing, the service could be better. The waiter did not smile at all and always was in a hurry which made as feel uncomfortable since we came for relax and fine dinning. Moreover, he was not aware of Campari Orange though eventually he arrange us aperitivo...The wine list quite expensive, no possibility of wine by glass, only bottle. Therefore, if you want to impress your date or guests and enjoy spectacular views while gourmet dinning - go for it! It is a must see in Moscow! The entrance is through the Smolensky Passage.

“Disappointing. Was expecting much more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

We went with high expectations parking in the mall underground then having to navigate eventually taking one lift to floor 1, then one lift to floor 5, then one lift to the restaurant floor. It's an office block with white rabbit stuck on top with fantastic views all over Moscow. The concave glass ceiling lets in loads of light making it bright.
I was upset that the crab cakes was so bland- could have been better. Overall it was OK and service was exceptional but very expensive.
First time I have heard that you need to leave a deposit to book a table by the window. So if you want a window table to see the amazing views don't forget.

“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

Been in that restaurant 1st time and would go there again if I have a chance! We booked a table two weeks in advance, because we wanted to make sure we have a second floor view,had to pay 500$ for it,but we could eat and drink on it.
It was not hard to find the restaurant, the security showed us the way and there were restaurant signs everywhere.
Hostesses were nice, welcomed us, showed the table. The atmosphere, music and decor are incredible! Super nice view. Our server Anastasia was polite and very knowledgeable, helped us with picking food and vine. Service was prompt.
Finger licking food! From starters to desserts we were amazed! Thanks to the chef! Have to try filet mignon, king crab salad, beef carpaccio! (Best i have ever had)
Over all value for money! One of the best evenings in my life! Thanks to everyone!
