Go to this restaurant for the excellent food and atmosphere, but expect average service. The employees I encountered did not speak English. This was okay since I was still able to obtain a table with my limited Russian. However, when it came to ordering, language was not the problem... I told the waitress what I wanted to drink and it was obvious I was still looking at the menu. I told her I did not know what I wanted, and instead of leaving and coming back... she hovered. It was very uncomfortable... she just started showing me things in the menu and saying "chicken," "fish," etc. The menu is in both Russian and English- my issue wasn't understanding, my issue was I just hadn't decided yet! I did quickly select something, and I'm not sure I really ordered exactly what I wanted because I felt rushed.
So why did I rate this place as very good? The food was outstanding. I'd hate to tell someone not to go because I had a poor service experience. I would go back, I would just be less concerned about the waitress standing there waiting- I'd just let her stand and wait while taking my time to decide. In addition to the outstanding food, the atmosphere was very sophisticated, chic, and sexy! There is not a dress code (I was there in jeans, boots, and sweater), but I can easily see this being a place I'd wear a cute dress to! I was alone, but I thought this would be a great place for a date with my husband. Overall, I liked it.
