Description: The Severianin is a sublimely classic Russian restaurant located in the very heart of the city of St Petersburg. The restaurant’s charm and hospitality have been carefully crafted to impress guests with a sense of 19th-century romantic ambience. The restaurant is named after Igor Severianin, whose poetry was much loved by the cream of Russian society in the last years of the Russian Empire…though despised by the Bolsheviks. Just a few of the restaurant’s extraordinary delights are such dishes as Lake Ladoga whitefish, lightly smoked over alder-wood chips; homemade venison carpaccio with lingonberries; braised lamb’s tongue with marinated green peppers and forest mushrooms; fillet of roast suckling pig. The Severianin menu is, in fact, a rainbow of 19th-century Russian delights intended to excite even the most jaded palate.

The best Russian cuisine restaurant in Petersburg. Excellent food, the chef takes care of every single detail while preparing the food and you can simply the taste of modern Russian cuisine. Everything is well served by very professional and polite waiters and waitresses. The ambience is amazing, beautiful interior design and live music in the evenings.

Everything for a reasonable price considering what you get.

Everything you need for an unforgettable night in San Petersburg. Nice Russian food, nice Russian service and good Catalan sparkling wine with excellent caviar. Codfish, extraordinary Stroganoff and unforgettable desserts. You can’t leave Sant Petersburg without a visit to this place.

We have been dining at many Russian restaurants for nearly a week and it was a mixed experience at Severyanin. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the location is very central. Restaurant service-wise, we have undoubtedly experienced the best service from the waitress so far. She was attentive, polite and unobtrusive.
However it has to be about the food, not just dining experience. The Russian Borsch Soup was simply the best Borsch we have tasted. We also ordered the excellent Royal Soup with Goose. The Siberian White Salmon pie was a surprisingly delicious dish. For dessert, we had Halvah Delight which was heavenly.
Now for the negatives:
1. The Prime Beef steak was just average.
2. The venison was a bit dry.
3. The grilled Kamchatka crab legs were the most disappointing - too dry and definitely not worth the price.
