“The Worst Sweet Sixteen!”

Cafe Restaurant Volna
Ranked #2,323 of 5,575 Restaurants in Brooklyn
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 5, 2010

Volna is the worst Restaurant I have ever went to! The food was served from Thanks Giving, it looked like it was half digested and crapped out. Everything was smelly, starting from cold cuts and finished with dessert. Lamb legs looked disgusting they tasted like they came from the Morgue and recooked. It is the worst Restaurant on the Brighton Beach boardwalk, never go there because the owners think that America is in a Great Depression and that people never ate good food. They bring shame to the Russian community and when people pay money they laugh that so many stupid people still exist in America!

If you want to know how it could be during Soviet times, go to this place. Even in Magnitogorsk, when Brezhnev was still alive, the regular communist administrator of a so called stolovaya knew better how to serve his custoomers than the owner of this hilarious bad joint that is even worse than the Russian cliche of non-hospitality already can be. Moreover, beware of the the coffee with milk. My wife became sick after drinking a cappucino. The foodauthorities in Brighton Beach have to hunt this place out.

The terrible service (rude, surly, unhelpful) casts a pall that makes the mediocre food seem worse. Cooked stuff varies in quality but Greek salad very good with excellent tomatoes (in season). Herring ($6) salty but tasty and smothered with sweetest of raw onions.

The only reason to go here is to get a table on the boardwalk and watch the promenade. On a beautiful day it's delightful. But there is competition right next door that might be better. They might have cleaner restrooms, too.

Double check the bill for an inserted service charge that may not have been mentioned. If it's there, tip accordingly.
