We went to Onegin before we went to House on a Friday night. We arrived at ten in the evening to a fairly empty restaurant. The bar was full however and I was told it gets busy around eleven which it did. The place itself has nice decor and clean. The DJ played good music and a lot people were dancing. We had five crafts of Vodka three appetizers and two entrees our bill was $1000. Service is European style which is horrible. If they are adding 20% gratuity this kid working our table isn't making $200 he is getting paid hourly and the house is keeping the money. It is a Russian restaurant if you don't speak Russian don't think you will be communicating effectively. Our waiter called over the manager when ever we asked a question. Don't go in expecting you are in an American restaurant with comparable service or staff that you would find in NYC.

I really have never been served that bad. The waiter spoke to us only to ask us if we want to order something more and was not able to understand both orders or questions thus he was hardly understandable when speaking, he took my friends plate away while he was finishing the side and while he was taking away our appetizer dishes he just left the entrees on the corner of the table. A gratuity of 18% was included in a dinner for two. I really thing they overcharge some dishes in order to fake the amount of money u are saving. The food was normal and they have different menus for coupon's holders (thing that was never said before). The only good thing was the ambient that was actually awesome.

I read mixed reviews, so I thought I would write a positive one. The service here was great, and I like that they had so many fun flavors of infused vodkas! I thought the food was pretty good. I also really like the inside of the place. Very pretty. Probably better for winter than summer, but I recommend to come here in the summer if it's way too hot to sit out.

I'm Russian 30 something and live in Manhattan. Initially we were going to Nasha Russia but our insider friend strongly suggested to go to Onegin instead. We started with borscht (exceptional), pies with spinach (just like my Mom's), entrees were Beef Str.(my fave always) and Sea Bass (fresh and delicious). I also enjoy coffee (lattes/capp. are right on). Service was excellent. i can't wait to go back. Well worth the money spent. I love Onegin!

So disappointing! I read so many wonderful reviews of this place and after making reservation to Onegin was thrilled to go. The service was very good but the food left something to be desired. Perhaps my expectations were too high but the beef stroganov were unexciting and the chiken kiev was not exactly as earth shattering as the reviewers would have us think. I will admit the pickles and mashed potato here are wonderful but seriously as a russian restaurant great mashed potato and pickles is the last they should provide.. Chicken Kiev was blah, Salmon was meh, and the appetizers were ehhh Ultimately the overall price tag of the meal was a slap in the face considering the quality of the food. Perhaps I was expecting too much but for a lot of money I expect to walk away from a meal completely bowled over by how amazing the whole experience was.

I'm a little torn about this place. I want to give them a decent review for the venue, but their food just doesn't make the cut. On the one hand the restaurant is very nice, and the waiters are engaging and friendly (except for when they disappear and there's nobody nearby to flag down). But as a person who likes my food to have flavor (I know, I'm in the minority), the dishes here are a very bland. They should probably sit down and taste their own entrees once in a while to make sure they're up to par. Also, if you're looking for a full russian-food experience, this is not the place to get it.Very bad crowd very noisy crowd and for the prices of the food and drinks its a lot of the better places
