I often eat at Neva Cuisine and cannot find anything bad to say about it! It is wondeful! It is not expensive compared to the quality you get both from the service and the food. I highly recommend it!

The food is wonderfully prepared and presented. Very reasonably priced at 37 euros for a fixed priced menu. Excellent service and beautiful surroundings. Go before they become famous and more expensive!

Good reviews sent 4 Paris newbies here...we were the first customers at 7:30. By 8:00 the Neva was almost full with Paris business types. No English menu but one sort of brusk waiter turned us over to a very helpful waiter who explained the short menu... about 6 main courses. 2 chose the chicken (?) and 2 the cod. All starters, main courses and deserts were very good. The all inclusive was about 45 euros and did not include drinks. 4 satisfied travelers enjoyed the short walk back to the New Orient Hotel.

Had dinner there last night, and what a disappointment it’s!
Wine: we ordered a Chablis Grand Cru, Vieilles Vignes which would have been very good had it not been lukewarm! After several unsuccessful attempts to get our waiter to put ice cubes in the wine cooler, we had to “raise it a notch” to finally get enough ice cubes from another waiter. By then, half a bottle had been wasted! It is rather surprising how a restaurant like this one could not have a sufficient number of chilled white wine bottles and then failed to take appropriate action and be so miserly with ice cubes!
Food:
First course: girolles, et tartare de daurade were good although the aioli (actually an emulsion with cream and garlic)which they hurriedly brought out a few minutes later, to go with the soupe de girolles so we were told, was too garlicky, and yet we like garlic. Presentation was very nice though.
Main dish: croustillant de ris de veau (add another 5 Euros) and John Dory.
Both dishes were way over cooked, and hence, too dry. The quality was there, but there’s an obvious lack of savoir-faire or care in cooking it. What a waste. The worst café in our neighbourhood would have done a better job. Even I could have cooked it better! I asked if it’s the Chef who cooked the ris de veau and the fish and was told it’s her second! From my seat I had a full view of the bar, entrance and part of the kitchen. The Chef was mostly busy standing in front of a board, with a black pen, crossing out dishes as they were brought out. She went out once, to a specific table. Probably to greet the regular patrons.
I counted 37 guests from the time we arrived, 20h45 to the time we left at about 22h15. There’re 2 waiters who seemed a bit distracted, but very available to those they know! The table to our left, a young Bristish couple, was left waiting for a good 20 minutes before some one took their order, another 15 minutes before they got their drinks and a good 20 minutes before some one came to clear out their first course! On the other hand the couple sitting to our right were regulars and every thing went swiftly for them!
We intended to try their signature desert but were so disappointed with the whole thing we decided to skip it and left, on a negative note. Went there because of positive reviews on this forum and others. Perhaps we were just the “unlucky” ones!
Une tres mauvaise experience: vin blanc tiede et malgre nos demandes repetees il a fallu attendre la fin du repas presque pour finalement avoir assez de glacons dans le seau a vin. La moitie de la bouteille etait donc gachee. On pourrait dire que nous avons eu chacun un verre de bon vin blanc pour clore le repas!
Entrees: soupe de girolles et tartare de daurade sont bons, a part une emulsion appellee aioli qui est trop aillee. Jolie presentation
Plat: ris de veau et st pierre. Tous deux trop cuits donc trop secs. Quel gachis car la qualite y est mais manque evident de maitrise de la cuisson. Pourtant ce n’est pas sorcier d’etre un peu plus attentif

Pas de dessert car nous voulions eviter une autre deception!
Service trop stresse, trop disparate. Deux serveurs pour 37 convives- entre 20h45 et 22h15
Conclusion: tres decus, malgre les bonnes appreciations du forum.

I went here with a coworker on a Monday night. The service was great, the wine was great (we had a Languedoc), the food was delicious. I had the ris de veau which I really liked - texture and flavor were just right. The side vegetables were well presented and fine, not fantastic. The chocolate sphere actually exceeded my expecations. Taste did not take a back seat to the flashy presentation. I was skeptical about the chunks of pineapple inside but all the tastes and textures worked perfectly together.

Great evening! Highly recommend!
