After renovation kitchen didn't loose anything. But interior is questionable. I prefer the previous style which really correspond to the idea of the place. Also, green colour of the the building does not correspond to architecture of surrounding places, only sticks out.

Was here in November 2016 when the restaurant re-opened after renovation. Ordered the food from the "old" menu that was still excellent. And I miss the "old" Lipsky (before the renovation), frankly speaking...

Just an update to my previous review: The restaurant is now closed; calling there I was told that they'd reopen under a new name and in a new format sometime in September, they wouldn't reveal what it would be but assured me that "I'd not be disappointed", so watch this space!

A posh place offering mainly Russian (as opposed to Ukrainian) food, beloved of the local political and business elite and often used to negotiate or to celebrate successful conclusion of deals, business and political alike. Food is reliably good, service attentive and prices ensure that the country's movers and shakers are among themselves. I particularly like the "three-kinds-of-fish" Ukha (fish... More

Wow! I came here for a business luncheon and this place never ceases to amaze me! Everything we ordered was beyond delicious. From the Red Borsch (beet soup) to their Pilmene (meat dumplings)...everything was perfection! Including the ambiance. Keep up the good work Lipsky!

A nice place to have good food. The borsch was the best we had in Ukraine, the main dishes we had were very good too, but turned out to have less of a distinctive ukranian flavour. Service was impeccable and the wine list impressive. Definitely worth a visit.

In my opinion one of the the classiest restaurants in Kiev. The service is out of this world thanks to Roma , the food is so refined, everything is so fresh, and authentic,they also have one of the best wine cellars in Kiev with a real sommelier. A must if you are in Kiev ! Bon apetit!

What a great restaurant! The best ukrainian borsch I ever tried! Really. Classical interior which brings you into the past. Very nice and profesional service. Truly recommend this place. Rather for couples or friends than families with small children

The legendary restaurant in Kiev changes the rules and amazes again! The new menu, new interior, new format. Under the same roof, at Lipki, the heart of the capital, Lipsky combined the classic and modern. The art of modern gastronomy and take away author's desserts, creative space and traditional luxury of banquets, wine tastings and dj-sets, an exquisite restaurant and a stylish city cafe. People make selfie there and enter into contracts during lunch, have breakfast with their parents and dinner with a noisy group of friends. Lipsky is always open. It is open to everything new and surprising. In common with native Kiev, it is old, familiar, cozy, but always trendy.
