    Great food, poor service

    I went with my mom & I opted for a Caeser Salad with grilled chicken & I asked if they can leave the croutons off and if they can put some tomatoes on it. He says "But it's in the menu! And the tomatoes don't come with it. That's a whole different thing!" I tell him to not worry about it. My mom gets up to look at the dessert which is by their bar where all the waiters are standing. Ourwaiter said to the others in Russian "I've never met with people like these". Out of embarrassment, she didn't even look at the dessert and came back down and told us. Part of me already thought at that moment, alright, let's go. But we stayed. We finish the food and we decide to have dessert - my mom will have Tiramisu, and my mom's friend and I were going to have a slice of cheesecake with a scoop of ice cream. I never perceived this to be an issue - we've had it at their place before. So we tell him and he says ok. Then before he even brings out the cheesecake or the tiramisu, we see him getting ready to bring out our ice cream - it was about 4 scoops for each of us. So when the other waiter brings it out, I tell him "I'm sorry but that is not what I ordered; I asked for ONE scoop of ice cream with our cheesecake". Our waiter then storms over with the menu in his hand and he goes "I don't understand? You wanted ice cream with cheesecake, no?" I tell him that we wanted one scoop of it with the cheesecake like I said earlier. He points to the menu and says "they don't do that, that's not on the menu". So I tell him I've been here before and I even point to our former waiter who has been a lot friendlier before and never minded giving us just one scoop. He mumbles something that it's him right now, we're dealing with him not the other waiter. I say to him with a raised voice while pointing to the nice waiter: "He's not a waiter here? He doesn't work here? Because he's certainly a better waiter than you!" I took a big breath and I said, "just bring the check; I don't want anything else from you". He brings the check which is barely legible and of the $53.80 we see a $4.50 that we can't figure out what it's for. We pay the whole bill (he gave us change out of his pocket right in front of us) and we left without tipping him.

    Good food, nice atmosphere, friendly service

    Recently went to this place for dinner and they had suprisingly great service for a Russian restaurant. The waiters were friendly, smiled and not annoying. The food was simple but tasty. Prices are average. The atmosphere is cozy. Would recommend it for a relax dinner/lunch. My only criticism is that some of the food was too salty for my taste.

    The best Russian food on Brighton Beach

    It is wonderful. The atmosphere brings us back to 90's. The food is very good. Especially pea soup!

    Great food at reasonable prices!

    Great homemade Russian food and reasonable prices. Everything is always fresh and delicious! My personal favorites are the fried flounder and lobster bisques. My husband likes the lamb chops and harcho soup. The menu (both in Russian and English) offers a wide range of choices so it's easy find something you like. The best past is -you can't miss; everything are all good.

    a no no place

    this is affordable place but for the quality and quantity of food you will get, this can be considered to be overpriced. Find someplace else!

    Unpleasant

    Everything was very oily with weird taste which had nothing to do with real Russian/Ukrainian food. Will never be back again.
