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 I cleaned my plate. Service was a little slow, but friendly.

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 lamb over rice

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 superb and the atmosphere was quiet and very conducive to conversation. I also thought prices were a bit high.

The Russia House is one of the finest restaurants in Herndon. Its menu is designed to please individuals looking for a sophisticated dining experience. The owners greet you and take care of all your wants and needs. The environment is bright with white walls decorated with Russian art. There is a full service bar and an extensive menu offering food with a European flare. Every item is cooked to perfection and served piping hot. Enjoy a Caesar salad made at the table. The beef, lamb, and seafood dishes are all good with wonderful sauces to enhance the food. Cherries Jubilee is available if you let them know when you make your reservation. It is prepared and served at the table. We are former residents of Herndon, but always plan a meal or two at the Russia House when we return to the area.
