“Charming atmosphere. Would eat there again. MC of NC USA”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

The service was excellent and the food intriguing for a non Russian patron, but excellent. The different flavors of home made vodka were appealing: my favorite was the cypress nuts and honey.

“Family atmosphera doesn't get better than this one”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

There are some things I’d keep in my memories for a long time: taste of the first pie baked by myself, grandma porgies, dad's famous Sunday dinners, night family talks with music and books. Somehow all this feelings and emotions came back to me with a sudden déjà vu in Chehov.
Their meal at Chehov exceeded expectations at every turn. Service: Impeccable. And not overbearing, as high-end restaurants often are. Food choices: Intriguing when described and delightfully fresh and original on execution. Atmosphere: Subdued elegance and home-like as if in someones suburban residence. It`s something that shouldn't be missed.
You feel welcome at Chehov.
If you like the idea of a "tasting menu", they don't get better than this one.

“The best Russian restaurant”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

I highly recommend this restaurant to those wishing to experience the old Petersburg's romance. Chehov is located on a quiet street away from all the noise of the big city. It is one of the coziest places I've ever visited. It is a must, if you want to experience the real atmosphere of St.Petersburg. The restaurant is mostly visited by locals and is a perfect location for a romantic dinner or a family lunch. It offers a lot of privacy and great service.

Food is delicious and ranges from home-made like comfort food to top quality delicacies.

“A must and I am not kidding”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

This restaurant is kind on a St Petersburg suburb and is a fantastic and very Russian restaurant with "Home" cooking, the menu is only in Russian and the place is fantastic, if I only go to one restaurant this one gets my vote, love it!
