I don't wanna say that the place is bad. Not at all! We had booked a table for five in advance and it was ready on time. Imposing interior, furniture à la l'époque de Pierre le Grand, cozy, clean, tidy. The staff was polite, professional...and hospitable. Their food, however, was rather controvertial: - shchi, made the day before (traditional Russian sauerkraut soup) - mind-blowing; - salads (with smoked duck breast, Olivier aka Russian salad abroad and the one with quail eggs) - very nice; - pirozhki (baked yeast-leavened boat-shaped buns with various fillings) with ground meat and onion as well as with eggs - gorgeous; - pike patties - a catastrophe, dry and sort of pliant; - stewed rabbit, Pozharsky cutlet (breaded ground chicken patty), stewed beef and Guriev porridge (dessert made from semolina and milk) - quite okay; - pike-perch fillet - tasteless and served with some poignant sauce (to camouflage lack of taste?) which is a taboo with fish, by the way. It cost us five RUR 5,715 (ca. USD 76) - expensive for Russia and from the point of view of price-quality ratio unacceptable. So, welcome to Sobranie - if you have extra money to spend.More

In my opinion, this is a very good place. They have a lot of Russian food and the prices are really low. All food was delicious, we ate Russian oven soup, rabbit and beef. Their own tinctures are fine but pretty standard. The bakery products...are good and very cheap. I think it is one of the best places in Yaroslavl.More

By no means would I strive to say that the place is bad. Just average. We booked a table for five in advance and it was ready several hours before our arrival - we took a promenade along the Volga embankment and quite by chance...saw this place so I decided to check whether we were right to choose it. It was really nice inside - several underground halls, furniture as if from the times of Russian princedoms, open-hearted staff, clean and tidy. When time for lunch came we ordered so called yesterday's shchi (Russian sauerkraut soup which should be served one day after it was prepared), pirozhki (Russian baked yeast-leavened boat-shaped buns) with meat, spring onion and hard-boiled eggs fillings, a smoked duck salad, an Olivier salad (known abroad as Russian), stewed rabbit, stewed beef, Pozharsky cutlets (Russian breaded ground chicken patties), pike patties, Volga pike-perch with mashed potatoes, Guriev porridge (another Russian speciality, a dessert made of semolina aka farina, milk, various candied nuts, honey and dried fruits) plus cranberry mors (Russian non-carbonated sweet berry drink) and tea/coffee. The food was uneven. Yesterday's shchi was mind-blowing, salads and pirozhki were also good, Pozharsky cutlets, stewed rabbit, stewed beef and porridge were quite OK but pike patties were just bad and pike-perch absolutely tasteless (they even served it with spicy sauce - nonsence if fish is prepared duly). The bill equalled RUR 5,715 (ca. USD 80.5) for four grown-ups and a toddler - unjust. For those who have extra money.More

Great delicious food from Russian traditional oven with an authentic atmosphere and great location. This place is quite busy even at day time so it's better to book in advance.

We went here after a day in the city, and admittedly we did not have reservations but the place was not very busy and we arrived at an early time (4pm) so we were given a table near the entrance. the atmosphere was still nice....The menu is a little odd, since it is primarily in english with russian sub-texts (the opposite of what you would expect to find) we found that some of the translations are also a little bit off, but nothing so severe. The reason we found it strange, is although the menu was in english, absolutely none of the staff or servers spoke english. Service was also on the slow side. The food itself was quite tasty, my mother-in-law had a mushroom appetizer that was excellent, and my baked beef tongue in cream sauce was also very good, even if some of the pieces were chewy and overcooked (the serving was large enough to also have many tender pieces) I saw in several other reviews people praising the homemade flavored vodkas, so we tried them. To be honest, although they were strong and with unique flavors, we found them to be of below average quality. perhaps good for mixing, but not for drinking straight. Overall, I would call this place average. The ambiance is nice, and the food is authentic Russian, but for the price you can get better service and just as high quality food elsewhere in the city.More

You can experience a Russian vibe restaurant with good food and great service in a smaller city of Russia with much less prices than Moscow or St. Petersburg. Here we tasted the best Borsch during our stay in Russia, Rabbit dish was very tasty, we...also tries the pot with tongue and cream which was also delicious. Try their homemade liqueurs. Staff could not speak English but they are nice and great at serving & there is an English menu so don't worryMore

Every single thing about this place of excellent: The ambiance, the variety of the menu, the delightful staff, the location and the prices! Being Russian myself, I'm very picky about Russian restaurants, as they often get quite tacky. But this was an absolute dream! Definitely...try the nastoyki :)More

The restaurant is located at a picturesque spot on the Volga embankment. Although most of the staff were not to fluent in english, thet did have an english menu and did their best to communicate. I do not have a lot of experience with Russian...food but what we had was very delicious. We also had some home made spiced vodka shots with pine nuts. It was out of the world. The prices were quiet reasonalble although by no means it is a cheap eat.More

Atmosphere looks very authentic, service was good, however food fell short of expectations. I had mixed grilled meats for appetizers and cabbage salad. Meats were tough and overcooked (portion was very large). Salad had too much oil and was fairly bland. Would not go back.

We found this place on the wonder from our hotel. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and feels very traditional and our waiter, Serge, was fantastic! We had the meat platter which was fantastic, with the home made drink based on vodka and pine nuts....The deserts were definitely worth the wait, Apple pie and a berry layer cake still warm from being cooked fresh, incredible! Would definitely recommend this place is your looking for good food and a nice atmosphere at a reasonable price.More

If you would like to feel all the depth the Russian hospitality you are strictly advised to visit this place. Most of the food even wit the most funny names that we tried was delicious and eatable for the average european. Please pay your attention...to the fish soup (uha). It is one of the best that I tried. The decorations of the place is very traditional old Russian style which makes impression even more complete. I believe that tonight we are going to that place again. P.S. As my friend said "They have a complete vodka menu!". Dozen kinds of vodkas are available and worst of trying. Even the one with the horse radish.More
