Ruski gets 5 stars for one of the best views in the city. As a restaurant, it gets four stars for the food. Especially if you take advantage of their occasional deals, it’s good value for the buck. In terms of service I would give...it 2 stars - largely due to the classic pompous attitude of front desk staff and their archaic reservation policies. If you are late by 20 minutes they won’t seat you even if they have ample space available, nor will they call you to see if you are running late. I understand if the place is full, but this holds true even if it’s empty (similar to Sixty). If you have a walk in, they’ll mostly likely won’t seat you by the window even if the place is empty. Waiters and bartenders provide descent service.More

Absolutely worth at least one visit. Food was great, choice good without trying to be everything to everyone. Table staff know how to look after diners without being intrusive.

For views of moscow, this canno be bettered. On the 85th floor with all round glass windows, make sure you go on a clear day and, if possible, get a window table. From here you can see all the way out of the city. Setting...is trendy. Do not expect haute cuisine however, the food is tasty and good value and I had no complaints but, really, it is about the view.More

For views alone, I would give this 85th floor restaurant 5/5. The views are stunning, even when slightly cloudy. However, the food was not great. It wasn’t awful either; but when paying top prices, I would expect top food. It wasn’t. We chose cocktails (good)...and beer (Tinkoff Russian beer - gassy), because the wine list looked like a rip-off (lowest priced bottle was the equivalent of just under £50). The service was not that good. Several times we had to disturb the waiters who were chatting together in a group, to ask for something. Half-way through our starter, loud pounding music started in the floor below. Upon enquiry, the waiter told us that there is a club directly below us hosting a private event and that “the music should stop in an hour or two”. Not good at all. Finally, we wanted to have a drink afterwards in the restaurant’s ice-bar, but we were told that to do this we had to order caviar ! No thank you.More

Sorry, probably this is not up-to-date, as we visited the place 29/07/2018. I just associate the name and the place... My wife and me were invited by our friend to this place. We found out it our friend was there for the first time as...well. First - it took us some time to find the correct building, as there were no direction anywhere. 2 people on the ground floor, 2 on the restaurant floor - not sure what they were doing, as they called for another person to take us to our table. Our table was not in good spot and sun was shining into our eyes. They suggested to close the curtains. No reason to go so high if you do not have a view. We were lucky - there were not so much people at this place at the time we arrived (around lunch time of workday), so we were moved to better spot with a view. Unfortunately the view was over the highway and some manufacturing area. Food - was good, beer selection (I prefer beer at lunch time) was good as well - I was happy with what I ordered. Food... Mainly it was some russian specific recipes, but I liked them. Food came fast and of good quality Price... Not the best, but you are paying for 85th floor mainly. What I didn't like is that I was told they are not accepting credit cards, something broke down. Really? With this price tag you should. I was lucky I had cash, but not for tips Ice room - separate story... I'm from Canada I've sen a lot of ice. To cool myself in July I can start air conditioner. :) In this ice room you cannot order drink there without snack. My wife wanted to try just a drink from the ice glass, but snack cost you a fortune. We decided not to go. I cannot say the experience was bad, but I had more fun that day in some Georgian restaurant...More

Visited the restaurant in December, booked a special table for two with the view. The view, that’s what the most popular thing about this restaurant. However, the Moscow fog gave us 0 possibility of the view. So prior to your visit, make sure the skies...are clear) Nevertheless, we had great time at this restaurant with excellent service, food and interior.More

As much as I PERSONALLY want to give them 1 star, It wouldnt be a fare review. Food - 3/5, Depends on what you order, its either tasty or average, in the worst case - food poisoning (which my wife got) Service - 1/5, Depends...on who you gets, Our waiter was very pushy and very rude. Location - 5/5, It is on the highest skyscrape in moscow, very beautiful view. Price - Quite expensive, Depends though on what you order, some is above average. Its was not worth my money! You only pay for the view. Be aware: Speak russian!! because if you an english speaking person like me, the waiter try to fool you! And i hope you wont get food poisoned like my wife. If the food comes out quickly, tell them you dont want it. Overall summary - 2/5 My experience: Firstly I called and booked a table for 2. Two times they didnt understand english, told me to wait and hung up on me (VERY RUDE). After a while I finally got some russian speaking person to book the table for me. Me and my wife were celebrating 8,5 years anniversary - what could beat a nice view in the night of big city of moscow on front of your feets. The answer is THE WAITER and THE FOOD! We sat down in the nice corner with a panoramic view (Awesome). Before we had time to sit down, the waiter came along (felt a little stress) and asked if we want to order anything predish, maindish or something to drink. After some time we order the meals and drinks. LITTERALLY 1 min later, the food came out (I was very suspicous), How could they make my beef tartare in under a minute? So I suspects its very much prepared in advance or either its old (Maybe someone didnt want their meal so I got it?). Anyway, the food tasted alright, above average. It wasnt bad so I didnt complain. When I was done eating, the waiter tried to push me to order a maindish and dessert. I replied that was my maindish and that i want to order a drink instead, HE LEFT! He really dissapeared. He never came back to us until the end. Instead another waiter came and I ordered the drink from him and after a looooong waiting a waitress came and delivered me the drink. When I finally asked for the bill, the waiter asked if I wanted to tip, (even after the POOR service I politely said YES). He then typed in as much as he WANTED to get tipped (There is no rule that you need to tip in RUSSIA and they NEVER expect any tip, It is just a polite gesture if the service been good) I told him that I rather choose myself how much i want to tip. He then said its either this much or nothing. So in the end I gave nothing. He was so upset he threw down the bill in the table in front of me and said "as you wish" and went away. I was shocked and surprised. Never ever in anywhere in any restaurants in RUSSIA ive been treated like this. I was so shocked I had to complain somewhere. The problem is no one could speak nor understand english. So they took up their phone and started google translating. 2 hours later after getting home. My wife started feel bad, dizzy and started to puke very much. She got obviously food poisoned from the food!More

We have been last week for the first time at Ruski. I did a table reservation before so we got a very beautiful table in one of the rooms in the corner with 2 different views, where you have the Federation Tower, Mercury Tower and...others view + the Kremlin view. We were at 19:00 for the dinner, so Moscow by night was marvelous. That room was good because is not central and the kitchen is not there, so you get a pleasant and quiet stay there. Everyone from the staff, starting from the 1st floor to our waiter (Irina I think), did a good job. Our waiter helped with tickets to the observation deck(it is a must to go there while you are here!) and while we were on the roof, our delicious food was prepared. The food was tasty and the red wine was nice. In the restaurant, a lady was playing live music on a piano, which was fantastic! In conclusion, I have been impressed on the service we had and for sure I will visit again this restaurant on my future Moscow visit.More

On the 86th floor this Russian style restaurant serves local and international dishes. Both fish, meat and pasta dishes are of excellent quality and have a clear local character. Some of these dishes are - as we were told by locals - also the traditional...ones. Professional and efficient staff serving it and making it a special spot where we enjoyed the delicious food with stunning view over the city. To be recommended !More
