“Successful RE opening !!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

I have just been to see that changed after one year renovation.

Simply - THIS IS G R E A T !! Well done Mr Architect :)) It is so well combined - ancients wooden decorations with some minimalists white accents. Wow :)
Menu does not make you mouth watering while reading. Very short. But when the plates are coming it is much better. They decided to keep Russian/French menu, but prices are much lower. And frankly speaking it is better to take Russian dish, even if it sound not too good for you :) In general it is good. I just have at the end a great loping dessert, apple pie or something, which was fresh but very cold and lots of cold apple pieces in not easy to digest :/

Service ok, nice, just we waited for quite a long time.

Many nice tables.
Music is so quiet that nearly inexistent.

Very good to bring some friends, colleagues or family coming to Moscow. And also for a date.
They will be astonished !

Very elegant, hip and smart.
And prices are ok for the quality.

“Great atmosphere, delectable beyond expectations”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

You will feel like you have been transported to another era in this beautifully appointed restaurant with the indoor architecture of another era. The costumed waiters showed us the ultimate care and professionalism, from the presentation of the menu to the serving of the beverages and delivery of the dishes with flair and unobtrusive subtlety at once, not a very easy thing to achieve. We were there on a business meeting, and the dishes ordered by our Russian counterparts were outstanding in presentation and delectable beyond expectations,

“Curious place to visit.”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

A mish-mash of styles in it's different halls, the interiors of the restaurant may be a somewhat allegory of fin de siècle and revolutionary Russian culture itself - varying from neo-gothic art-nouveau up to early abstractionism and cubo-futurism. Of course, such interiors never promise an exceptional cuisine. One comes here, in the Central Home of Literators to gaze, not to eat. But though it isn't a high cuisine, it's consumable, anyway.

“Amazing Soups and cozy atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

Amazing interiors which replicate the splendor of the Silver Age of Russian culture. The fire place makes for a warm cozy atmosphere. Had some great soups that reall hit the spot on a cold day. Service was very professional by all the staff. Very friendly.
