Tatiana's has two restaurants on the boardwalk: the Grill and the Restaurant. We ate at the restaurant. Great location, attentive service. The menu looks pricy but the $15 lunch special was running all day on the weekday we were there and was a great deal. However there was a service charge added to the bill for around $3.

This is a nice place. The Vinaigrette was not so good, but the Mushroom Julienne and the Pelmenyi were good. My friend ordered Pecan Crusted Tuna and it was yummy. Its a nice place for Russians as well as Non-Russians. You can sit on the boardwalk, which is where we were, and enjoy Russian food and atmosphere without going out to the Cabaret style Restaurants.

We had dinner at Tatiana grill. Service was very slow. The waitress forgot to bring a salad but charged for it. When I asked her about it, she admitted that she made a mistake but said that she can not remove this $9.00 from the bill. It is 10%! Beggars were walking between the tables and asking for food and money. People were constantly smoking around. 2 of us spent $100 having one soup, 2 entrees and one pastry for an appertizer. It was $100 and nohing special. Chicken Kiev tasted like it was purchased in Costco. The fish was dry and overcooked. New York has a lot of restaurants that offer great gourmet food for this amount of money. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO ANYBODY.

PROS: ---Huge menu. Huge. Oh, and by the way... the menu is HUGE. Some books I read were shorter. --- Great technical skill and presentation. The dishes look delectable. --- Big portions. One salad is enough for 3 people. Do not underestimate the sizes. 2 entrees for 3 people should be fine. --- For best experience: go there on weekday, in the evening of a hot summer day. Sit *outside*. On a cold day, they'll bring you a blanket! A nice old man will play accordion for you (tip him! he's a sweetie). People walk about on the boardwalk next to you... relaxing. The beach/ocean right in front of you. --- I always dress up to go, but you don't really have to. Just look decent. Preferably no sneakers. Jeans are ok. Faves (stuff I usually order): 1)French Onion Soup (but the bowl will give you a 1st degree burn if you touch it. No joke.) 2) SOFT SHELL CRAB. Buttery mashed potatoes, chives, and 3-4 crabs. Big dish. A bit much salt even for me (and I like over-salted stuff). Tell them to undersalt it and you can just salt it to your liking. 3) DUCK FILLET. Same mashed potatoes, eggplant chips, duck in the most fantastic sauce (plum sauce but I might be mistaken). Very juicy, soft, and good kind of fatty. No bones.2-3 pieces of duck. About $20+ and worth it. 4) CRISPY TELAPIA. Same mashed potatoes, steamed (?) veggies, and this scary-looking *whole* big-ass fish *stands* on the plate. Head on, with scales and all bones. Very rustic. Hard crispy skin. Eat the fins! They're like chips! I can never finish this fish, even if it's the only thing I order. It's huge. Enough for 2 people. Gotta be my favorite and I hate fish! $25+ and totally worth it. I usually end up taking half of it home. 5) MUSSELS IN GARLIC SAUCE. I might have gotten the name wrong, but ask about those that come in a black "kettle" thingie. Yummy appetizer. Most importantly: consult with the waiter on what's good. Waiters know best. ----------------------------------------------- CONS: 1) Expensive. Average salad:$13-17. Alcohol isn't cheap - good alcohol is. If you want a full meal (no booze) it'll be around $100 easy. 2) Inside it's a bit too much for me. Everything looks too grand. Like a wedding party. I like quieter, more intimate spaces. 3) Expensive. Expensive. Expensive. 4) Not cheap.

I can definitely say this has been so far the best Russian restaurant I have ever been to, but it is overpriced and too expensive- prepare to spend at least $100-$200 per person. On weekends u get to dance in nightclub las-vegas style!

The highest end restaurant of all the Russian nightspots in Brighton, but at a price. The food is incredible and plentiful, but be prepared to splash the cash; liberal BYOB policy helps on this front. Go family style if you have a group 6+ but make sure to split the bill - its cash only so come loaded with greenbacks not plastic. Atmosphere is a bit chintzy, but thats all part of the fun.

The food is bland and overpriced but you can't beat sitting on the boardwalk sipping some wine. It's the perfect place to sit and enjoy a meal after a day at the beach.
