This is a very nice Russian - style restaurant with a welcoming feeling. The decor is rather classical style, and the staff are very kind and helpful. There is a good selection of food, beautifully presented. It's well worth a visit.

The several small rooms, and relative quiet of the restaurant make for a nice relaxing dinner. Food and service were both very good, with several gluten free options. My wife started with the borscht and had the venison as her main course while I had...More
