I was in Brooklyn and wanted to go to a Russian restaurant. We chose Skovorodka because of the good reviews. We definitely weren't disappointed. The last time I had authentic Russian/Ukrainian food was on a trip to Ukraine a few years ago. The food at Skovorodka was excellent. We had a few appetizers and two entrees. The portions were generous... More

Did a quick little search for a restaurant in Brighton Beach and found this little gem. Noticed only fellow Russians dining there with friends and family. The restaurant was brightly lit with tvs in each dinning room showing Brooklyn 12. Staff could have been more friendly. No hello, no welcome. Just "how many" and "ready to order?" That was the...

I'm Russian immigrant, so quite familiar with good Russian cuisine. I came here with a friend who was trying Russian dishes for the very first time. We both loved every single dish that we tried! Beginning with salad Olivie, green borsh, mutton shush kabob, vareniki with cherries! Food was very good and so was service and the atmosphere. Older DJ... More

We shared this experience with the friends of different origins and everybody liked the restaurant including the kids. The food is good and fresh made, the personnel is friendly and helpful. The portions were quite big and the desserts were generous. We would recommend this restaurant to other people

My friends from Australia were visiting and we decided to find an authentic Russian restaurant in Brighton Beach near New York. Great food and attentive service and very good prices.

Yum! What a great little kitch restaurant. Food is as authentic as you will get anywhere. The herring was delicious served with pickled onion and potatoes. Chicken soup yummy. Pickled cucumbers just like zaida made! If you want some fun out of the heady NYC lights go and treat yourself!

This is a small restaurant and if you want to enjoy their food reserve days earlier. Because they always have large groups in the back the restaurant becomes limited to about 6 tables and those tables go quick! First of all I have to say the people are friendly and they allow BYOB. Wine or Vodka. I love Borscht but... More

My son and I went to Skovorodka on April 27th 2016 for a Russian lunch while on our first visit to Brighton Beach. The food was very tasty, the service was attentive and excellent. Our lunch was a real treat. They offer a lunch special from 11 to 4 so we ordered from that menu. Three picks of items: we... More
