When I saw the words "clay pot", I had to have babushka. Years ago at a Georgian restaurant in Azerbaijan, I ate a wonderful stew made in a clay pot. Delicious there; delicious here! My husband said the beef stroganoff was "wondrous!--its full rich flavor was a delight." The parsley mashed potatoes were exquisite--probably the best mashed potatoes he'd ever... More

I have been experienced this restaurant for the last 15 years or more. Based on my experience as a traveler and gourmet cook, I must say that this restaurant has been surprising us every time with new plates, best Vodkas and great desserts. Service is outstanding, the Chef is always bringing new ideas that fit the Russian world and the... More

I have visited and lived in Russia for work and it has been a long time since I've been there, but this was like coming "home" after an extended absence. I loved the ambiance, sights, smells, and the food..... AMAZING!!!! I can't wait to return next time I am in the area.

Festive, friendly restaurant for New Years Eve. Tasty food, the portions are large. The vodka is good, haven't been here in years for unknown reasons, but would go back anytime.

We were a party of six and all the meals we ordered were excellent! Appetizer plate was very good as well! Food was prepared with such care and presented with elegance! What I especially liked was that each set of tables were separated by sheer curtains which gave it some privacy. If you are looking for a unique experience both... More

I don't know why it took me years to come here - very well deserved of it's high ratings. Vodka selections off the charts - Stroganoff was best I've ever had. They had Shakers vodka - not made any more. Delicious!!!

My wife and I love trying out new restaurants on special occasions. This time we decided to give this restaurant a try, we have a Russian coworker who very much recommended this place as a good quality Russian/Ukrainian restaurant. I loved the house brewed dark beer and my wife tried the groosha. If you have never tried Russian food, the... More

MOTH has been around forever. It's a popular spot in the area that runs on expensive side. It offers some amazing drinks with a lot of imported choices that are hard to find locally. The atmosphere is like from crime movie and it's hard to escape the "shady" feeling associated with it. In essence it's s good spot for a... More
