For over eighty-five years, New York's defining cultural moments have taken place at Russian Tea Room. Ever since members of the Russian Imperial Ballet founded the restaurant in 1927, it has been a second home for boldface names and the intellectual elite-an exclusive enclave where actors, writers, politicians, and businessmen planned their next deals and feted their friends' latest Carnegie Hall performances.

    What can I say? The Russian tea room is our favorite restaurant in New York City. The service is superb, the food is outstanding, the noise level allows you to talk without shouting, and the decor is exceptional. And you can easily walk to the theater district after dinner. We had the Siberian dumplings, beef stroganoff and chicken Kiev. The dumplings and the stroganoff were particularly outstanding.

    The Iconic restaurant lives up to its name. If the good food doesn't impress you, the high caliber service will.

    This is such a NY institution that younger people don’t really know about. I took my 20/30 year old children and 4 and 7 year old granddaughters and they were blown away. The service, food and opulent surroundings are at the highest level, all so enjoyable. I highly recommend it. We’re coming back for th 109th anniversary in 2 years if not before!

    We were seated comfortably in a booth, had its table filled out for us to more easily enter. Our waiter made wonderful suggestions and we tried some of the suggestions he made. We were not disappointed.

    This is a place for tea - says it in the name but we had lunch so a real test of the chef. The borscht was lovely, especially the broth and the other diners thought their starters were fine. But my mushroom stroganoff was with noodles/spaghetti and was flabby so not that good to eat. The others thought their salmon en croute (or whatever they call it) was fine. The cheesecake was dense but the chocolate volcano was moist and erupted when cut so a real win. Overall it was a good place to have visited but I suspect I will delay my next visit for a while.
