We planned to stop here after seeing Jersey Boys and wow am I glad we did! I can not say enough. It was late, we ordered the Duck Liver Pate and the Gravlax and latkes. I have one thing to say, I am ready to go back. We did not have reservations (although it looked like there might have been... More

We came here twice because it was reasonably priced and service was great. It was conveniently located within walking distance of Times Square, many of the theaters and hotels. We were there for drinks and a snack.We sat at the bar, where the bartenders (really Russian) came fairly quickly and were very pleasant. The drinks were outstanding. I had several... More

I took my friend that lives in New York and she had never been there before, but said she will remember it from now on. So, it's more of a very local neighborhood place, but a great atmosphere and good deals. It would be a great place to go before or after a show since you are right in the... More

Whether visiting, on business, waiting to see a show, whatever your reason the RVR is the place to experience! Stepping into a darkened Russian-inspired establishment with the aroma of Russian cooking and vodka. Delish apps, entrees and desserts or simply have a vodka martini or one of the House specialty vodka drinks and enjoy the music coming from the piano.... More

Great atmosphere, and great drinks. Yes...go and have a drink. We loved this place. The location is great, basically next door to The Jersey Boys and around the corner from Wicked.

What a blast. Had a great night there. They serve regional russian beer in 1l bottles. Next to this, the owner of the club joined us with a bottle of Vodka before closing. Last time I went there, they had live music as well.

We had about 45 minutes to kill before seeing Jersey Boys and this place is about 2 doors away. The sign out front said it was happy hour so we went in. We were given a cozy table for 2 and were served quickly, even though it was pretty crowded. $4 beers (I tried a Russian draught) and $4 vodka... More

I am a recent convert to vodka and hoped to be able to try out some different varieties, but some of the ones that most intrigued me were not available, even though they were listed on the menu. I tried some of their infusions (ginger and horseradish) and thought they were good. Those shots were cheap ($4 for 2 oz).... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
