“Back to USSR”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is a must visit establishment for those who want to experience USSR like...Located right on the beach boardwalk the Tatiana restaurant will offer you lots of Soviet era experience and food. You will be pleased with staff and food quality. Ask waiters for stories of the past celebrities. Look around and you will see interesting mix of people walking by and seating there. It is only possible here at Brighton Beach.

“Good food with little else to recommend”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Four of us had dinner outside (with nice views of the boardwalk) Saturday evening. Long lines to be seated, very crowded. After being seated, waited almost half an hour for our order to be taken. Our waitress wasn't the best, definitely room for improvement there. Had to ask for silverware, water and bread (every other table seemed to have bread on it but ours). We all enjoyed our food very much. Though it does seem a bit pricey, the portions are decent sized. When the bill came, an automatic 10% gratuity was added (for only a party of 4?) My guess is that the service in general is poor, and otherwise people would just leave less, or nothing. Two of us sitting at the table both were "bumped" by the same waitress just a bit too wide to pass by us unobtrusively. All the staff seems to rush around, good luck trying to get someone's attention.

“Great ambiance and food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

This is a sprawling restaurant, grill etc. which accounts for the varios names and addresses. Great seashore ambiance and food and the place is located right on the boardwalk with a lovely view of the ocean, sailboats and beaches with outdoor and indoor seating. We were there as part of a motorcoach tour and were almost overwhelmed with the fine quality and more than generous amount of food. Regarding service and hospitality, not their strong suit due in part to much of the staff who either do not speak English or has limited knowledge of it. This is on the heart of a Russian neighborhood so think of being in a foreign country. If friendly is important, go to an Irish pub. If you want a Russian experience and tasty ethnic food then I would give this a whirl. Our luncheon was served to our group family style in courses starting with diced, fresh veggies with a pleasant dressing, then a creamy Caesar salad with a bowl of hearty beet or mushroom soup, which was followed by a chunky chicken salad type item in a slaw, then grilled chicken and a spicy lamb sausage, then tilapia with a pasta topping and finally a hot cherry apple strudel with a creamy ice cream topping and coffe or tea. Part of the problem with the language is that we didn't know the proper names for what we were eating, and the staff priority was getting hot food to the table quickly rather than the nicety of bring able to communicate with us about the meal. If we understood them correctly, while they offer a $14.95 special, our luncheon was $25....and it was well worth it.

“Below average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I suggest you to find another place to eat. The waiters look tired, no smiling and bad attitude. Food is no good and overpriced. Never again we are going to go there. All my friends say that the Tatiana restaurant and Tatiana grill became worse.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We haven't been I russian restaurant for very long time. First time in NY and we've decided to go to Brooklyn and Brighton Beach. After 10 min. In russian groceries stores area we knew most of the news of community . The funny. Thing was: it seems like you've seen many of the people somewhere before. Seems like there are all from the history. Beach itself is nice. Tatiana restaurant located in perfect location with ocean view.
Service was ok. The waitress was working hard and she tried to help us with menu. Speed was good, we haven't waited long for our food arrived. Menu is traditional, simple and comfort. Decoration of the restaurant is very basic. I would put solid 3 stars for the food and service. Don't expect to have Cote de Rhone or Chianti in the vine list. I think during the summer time it fantastic place to hang out and watch people after few vodka shots. Enjoy.
