This was an elegant meal. The food was fabulous and we will return here on our next trip to New York City.Reviewed by: Michaelanne G, USA, February 2013
What a great way to end a wonderful week in NYC! The wait staff were very attentive, the food very good. The only down side the price of alcohol was quite expensive. Would go back there and I have recommended this tour already.Reviewed by: Jane P, Australia, May 2013
Dinner and atmosphere at the Russian Tea Room were amazing! We probably could have just made a reservation there and gone without this booking though. Make sure you tell them you have the Viator voucher when you check in, we forgot and had to pay a little bit extra.Reviewed by: Michael C, January 2013
My friends and I really got into the spirit of things and 'dressed up' for our visit to the Russian Tea Room, I was surprised to see other diners dressed casually. This place is amazing, absolutely beautiful, genuine paintings hanging on the walls, lots of glitz. The food was good value, traditional, I enjoyed borsche, chicken kiev and a gorgeous chocolate dessert. Drinks are quite expensive but I suppose in keeping with the surroundings. I was surprised at how quiet it was, very few diners although we booked for 8 pm. I felt it did lack atmosphere, possibly down to it being so quiet. The Manager 'talked' us through some of the paintings and was charming. We did query the final bill as it seemed high, but discovered tax is payable not only on the bill of the evening but also on the pre paid cost of the tour. We did find the waiter we queried the bill with quite rude, he argued with us in a raised voice, which was embarassing and uneccessary- we just wanted a breakdown of the bill. It did rather spoil what was an otherwise enjoyable evening. The Manager did give us tour of the rest of the Tea Rooms which were beautiful and very impressive. A great trip if you appreciate glitz, glamour and art and like to dine in quiet luxury.Reviewed by: Helen R, United Kingdom, March 2013
