I absolutely love this place. It's such a welcoming and adorable environment with great, friendly service staff and delicious food. The whole experience feels like a treat. I feel like I'm at a special place every time I'm there. The one flaw is the music. It's always the very opposite of the look and style of everything. Sometimes it gets in the way of enjoying Mari Vanna. They seriously need to get rid of their collection of old pop music and start playing some more authentic Russian or dinner-friendly music.

This is a charming authentic Russian restaurant serving excellent cuisine. The waitstaff is extremely helpful with menu choices and simply could not be nicer or go out of their way more to make sure you have everything you need. Just go! You'll love it!

I'm a Russian Native who has recently been to Moscow and St. Petersburg and I think Mari Vanna is one of the best Russian restaurants I have ever been to. The authenticity, quality and freshness of the food just made the whole experience superb! I cannot wait to return and try everything on the menu….. and highly recommend this place to any foodie, Russian or not!

Great decor, good music,most food very good, BUT one bottle (750ml) of drinking water is $12. It's crazy. It's 1000%

My family and I split our time between Moscow, Russia and nyc. Mari Vanna's nyc restaurant is a quite recent discovery for us but it quickly became our go to place for all our special occasions (including just being too lazy to cook dinner) ;) I actually read all the comments and reviews on menu pages and lack of any really negative reviews made me curious. My curiosity was satisfied and we were not disappointed. Mari Vanna's new management did an excellent job turning this restaurant (in my opinion) into best Russian restaurant in NYC! Overall I would say trust the 'user ratings' they are right on point. While the prices are not low they are exactly what you would expect for the quality of food and excellence in service and atmosphere that you get here. We can not wait to go back there for my dad's birthday!
