Ribeye is a really happening place! The music is great, throwing up plenty of good pop tunes, but the big surprise is that the waiting staff get on the floor for dance routines and even sing some of the songs- well I may add! Anyway the point of this is I went to a restaurant looking for a steak and... More

This is a really fun restaurant. Located on the main floor of another popular place. Enjoy the great music. The service is excellent, The atmosphere is cool and the steaks and the sides are quite tasty and service is attentive and friendly. Really good steaks. Not worth the money, even by St.Petersburg standards.

This is a chain of restaurants we visit quite often , Ribai is the meat Specialsit of them all, the local stakes are as good as any you will find around the world, plus every 30 mins the staff put on a small show. It makes for a interesting evening.

Went for a business dinner. For starters, we had a selection of cheeses and some had soup. For mains we all had steaks, and all were impressed by the quality of these. Perfectly cooked. Some of the waiters were very good at singing - and it added a bit of fun to the experience. We got very good service from... More

Good food with waiters and waitresses who sing and dance between courses. Service was pretty poor. Maybe worth a shot!

Trendy restaurant and nice food but service is terrible. Huge confusion about the order and massive delays for the good to be served.

Ribeye is by far our best meal in St.Petersburg. The meal quality was really nice, which was a surprise to me, cuz reading the menu I realise the steak comes from Belorussia and I didn't expect much, but it turns out great! They have big kids playroom very convenient for families with younger kids. The personal is friendly, tho start... More

I was in St. Petersburg for vacation and a friend of mine recommended Ribai. I expected a typical steak restaurant. It was anything but typical. The food was fantastic. One of the best steaks I've had outside of the US. But on top of it, the servers actually perform. They sing and dance and the quality of their performance is... More
