Really nice place to eat directly by the Admiralty Building. Really good food, presentation and excellent service. One step beyond with waiter actually making suggestions to make our group menu more interesting. Only use fresh produce when available - in fact that was the sign that drew us in.
So good that we had dinner 2 nights running and I am writing this sat outside drinking a nice pot of tea while my other half does day 2 of the Hermitage!
Thoroughly recommended!

Maybe an off night, but we were looking forward to Georgian food and were disappointed. Soups were fine, cheese-stuffed bread was delicious, but the mains (almost indelibly tough chicken dishes) were not up to scratch.

Good russian food, but as usual in Russian restaurants the service is not as good. My girlfriend got the wrong dish and the waiter first told her he didn't understand the order because she ordered from the English menu (Which was not true as she is Russian and ordered in Russian), then he told her that because she liked what she got she should not complain. Actually the wrong dish was 1/3 more expensive than the one she ordered. Really unacceptable treatment.

We had dinner on our first night there. The waitress was charming and attentive. the food was excellent with a wide choice of russian/georgian/armenian food. We liked it so much we went back on our final day for lunch there - it was equally good. conveniently located to the Hermitage Museum and St Isaac's Cathedral - this one is worth a visit.
