This was my first time having dinner at the Russia House Restaurant in Herndon, Virginia. The food and service was excellent, and the décor was beautiful. The last time I had Russian food of this caliber was many years ago at the Russian Tea Rom, in New York City. I plan on going back to the restaurant real soon for... More

Cozy restaurant. Service was very good but a bit slow - the restaurant was full on a Saturday night. However did not distract from a very fine meal. Outstanding appetizers - their shrimp were particularly good with a very tasty sauce. The beef stroganoff was the best I ever had. A bit pricey for Herndon, but well worth it for... More

A really memorable experience! Will definitely return. (Actually at 724 Pine St.) We enjoyed the classical music and décor, the tasty and interesting food, and the pleasant family who runs the operation. We began with an Apricot-infused vodka and the Zakuski Platter appetizer sampler - an interesting variety and nice introduction. Our entrées, rack of lamb and Tsyplionak Stasivi --... More

I had never really tried Russian food before, and this place was a great place to start. Everything was delicious. I had the Russia House shrimp, the borscht, and the morshiye grebeshki - the scallops were cooked perfectly, and everything tasted great. It's pricey, so not a place to go to all the time, but the portions were generous and... More

I have tried several of the entrees at Russia House - all have been very good to excellent. I don't have a particular favorite - as everything they have is good! but, if I had to make a couple recommendations: the Borscht; for vegetarians; the Grilled veggie platter; the broiled salmon with champagne sauce; Stuffed cabbage leaves with beef, grilled...

The Russia House in Herndon, Virginia is iconic. It has a great menu with lots of choices of Russian favorites. I was with a group of 8 and all thoroughly enjoyed their meal. I ordered the Sauteed Chicken breast with walnuts. I thought the chicken was a bit dry and did not have a lot of flavor. The service was... More
