Reviewed yesterday NEW

Tried finding a restaurant that would take reservations and have a sit down dinner for Easter instead of the typical overpriced buffet. Fiddlers met that requirement. The Russian menu had plenty of delicious entries. The beef stroganoff was outstanding!! Want to go back and try the kebobs. This was a perfect choice for elderly parents. Our waiter was patient and... More

My husband called to find out they were going to be closed and wouldn't re-open until mid January.....after our coupon would have expired! The person at the restaurant said the would extend it till January 25.... More

Delicious food. We purchased a groupon for a 5 course meal where you can select an entree. Lamb chops and Cornish Hen are excellent. The summer salad, the bread and the Napoleon dessert are outstanding. The pierogi were the weakest in my opinion as the dough was different from what I am used to. However, the sauerkraut filling was tasty.

The best part of the meal was my excellent Russian beer (a half liter bottle of Baltic #5). The salad was good, we had no choice but it seemed to have a raspberry vinaigrette dressing. We ordered a blintz and caviar appetizer. The waiter told me the blintz were crepes, which they were, but obviously not freshly prepared and not... More

We visited Fiddler after purchasing a groupon for the restaurant. We live in West Bloomfield and were not even aware it was in the neighborhood. It is tucked away in the back of a strip mall, not even visible from Orchard Lake Road. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the ambiance. With primarily a Russian... More

Meal was very good and staff very friendly and helpful. This was our first time in a Russian Restaurant in the USA and we were pleased with our meal. We are from europe and are used to eating out in europe.
