This is an authentic Russian place which bears the atmosphere of the 1880s kept as it originally was. Delicious food with fabulous representation attent service, but be prepared to spend. Highly recommended!!

Made a reservation to get in, but at arrival some tables were empty.
Service is fantastic. Waiters are doing their best.
Food is very good. I tried 3 different dishes : main and 2 first. All great.
Prices: not as expensive as expected.
Valet parking is free
The restaurant itself is divided in two sections: pharmacy and library. I speak about the pharmacy only.
Will back again without a doubt

This is a MUST restaurant for a Moscow visit. Russians adore their poet Pushkin, and this restaurant has the ambiance of his early 19th-century era. Close to Metro (Pushkinskaya) and comfortable walk from Red Square. SERVICE is what makes this restaurant outstanding. English-speaking staff who actually want to take care of your needs. Russian food on menu for authentic experience--salmon, stroganoff, veal, game, filled pasta dumplings. And the national drink of Russia--Kvass!! Something any visitor ought to at least try a sip. Our waiter Maxim was a pleasure. After our meal, he took us upstairs to see the library and recited one of Pushkin's love poems to us in English. So sweet on our 30th anniversary. Then upstairs again to the balcony area with seating on the roof top. Although the atmosphere is nice and well-dressed people were dining here, my luggage had been delayed and I was still in my travel clothes 36 hours later; but no one seemed to mind or look unfavorably on me. We walked in off the street without reservations earlier in the evening. But since prime dining in Moscow is 8 pm, reservations for later would be encouraged. We went back to buy a souvenir magnet next morning and they were serving a lovely breakfast to a small crowd--reminded me of England in a way. So quaint and cozy. Highly recommend.

Excellent service, excellent food, but slightly bit overpriced. We had two different caviar with omelets (which was excellent) and then the stroganoff and assorted russian meat specials. All was really great.
