Gogol is billed as serving "classic Russian dishes" and being somewhat like going to Grandma's house for dinner. While dishes included many typical Russian ingredients and flavors, execution and presentation seemed a bit more sophisticated than Grandma's might be. Pelmeni were quite good and everyone, including people we spoke to at nearby tables, enjoyed the food. Service was efficient, if not especially friendly. Restaurant is divided into small rooms that are a bit dark ... but I guess a bit like Grandma's house.

This restaurant is everything the reviews say it is. Fantastic food, very well priced for SP considering down the road you will pay nearly the same for a couple of pizzas. Very classy restaurant with wonderful decor, excellent service and the tastiest food in SP.
Just off Nevsky Prospekt at Malaya Morskaya so bang right in the centre of everything
try the chicken kiev, stuffed with foi grois and pistatchios, caviar starter and also an extra starter of soup. The meat dishes are all delicious and the vegetable sides and salads are so fresh. would fly back to Russia just to go to this reataurant

We had a great meal here last night and had no problem with service. The chicken Kiev was delicious and couldn't be faulted. We found the prices very reasonable. They were also very accommodating for us getting a meal to take away as my sister was sick at our hotel.

We chose to visit Gogol in the evening after a nice quick snack, on the same day. The food was ok but the service was extremely slow and generally discourteous.
Something must have gone wrong in the kitchen or somewhere. However the manager was very unhelpful and rude, without any provocation from us at all. No idea about customer service.
Pity, as the food was good.
They need to sort themselves out.

We were lucky to Get a table here without a reservation and what a stroke of luck that we did! The atmosphere is relaxing and romantic, with just a few tables in each room. Service was prompt, and we were given a bell to use to summon the waiting staff should we have needed.!!! A bottle of water,Two glasses of wine,a salad to share, two soups, bread and garlic butter, two mains all for 60 pounds. Recommend the Kiev very highly, but all of the food we had was of high quality and provided a memorable experience.
