The unpretentious menu is the best. Food items (soup and salad) are worth mentioning. Downside: prices bit too high and bread were old. Overall, good

I loved this restaurant in every respect. Small, homely, literary, gourmet, time-capsuled and friendly it is everything that one might hope for in an evocative St Petersburg evening as the snow falls outside the windows. The food was marvellous and the wines we were pointed...towards also pleased. Thankyou for a gracious dining experience.More

If you are looking for a good very traditional Russian restaurant then this could be for you! Lovely vintage style decor and delicious food served by charming waiters. We had a lovely night out and it was very good value.

When you enter this restaurant, it's like stepping into someone's front room and stepping back in time and it was beautifully decorated for Christmas when we were there. The food is delicious Russian cuisine and plentiful....save space for one of their delicious desserts too! Andrey,...our waiter was very friendly and helpful.

We loved this restaurant. It is very small and cozy, a reservation is recommendable. It is decorated like a living room of 19th century. We were there on Saturday when a pianist contributed to the nice atmosphere. All meals we ordered were excellent. The highlight...is the service - the young men were professional and attentive. We will surely come back.More

My wife and I ate at Severyanin twice on our recent visit to St. Petersburg. The food was very good indeed. On our first visit we started with black caviar, followed by Beef Strogonoff. The dessert was a wonderful Sea Buckthorn cream creation of the...chef. Our meal was accompanied by good Georgian wine. The service was impeccable! Throughout the meal we were guided and served by a delightful and dedicated young lady called 'Yulia'. It was certainly the best dining experience of our trip. We enjoyed it so much that we returned on the next evening, which happened to be our last prior to departure. We highly recommend this restaurant!More
