    OMG why is this restaurant not busy? This place used to be called "The Russian Tea House" they renamed it do to the war in Ukraine with the Russians. It is not owned by Russians so people please go check them out. The food is amazing. We ordered the charcuterie plate and there was so much of it we were full for our second plates. Most restaurants that serve charcuterie you barely can split one piece of cheese btw people. We ordered filet mignon which was well prepared, the octopus was delicious, the ravioli with mushrooms was fantastic (we don't usually order pasta if the place is not Italian)and last was the chicken which I'm told was excellent (I am not a chicken fan so didn't try it) the server was very friendly and professional. The wine was very well priced. I was shocked that on a Saturday night there were only 3 tables including ours. I will push this restaurant to all my friends and I rarely rate 5 stars as I'm always disappointed whenever we try a new place. The only issue would be no patio at all so maybe people want to spend more time eating outdoors these days

    Good appetizers but the main dishes are not. Such as the duck and the beef tenderloin.

    Amazing experience here! Every single person here from security, to the server, to the manager, and DJ was extremely nice and went above and beyond. By far the best service we’ve ever gotten, and will definitely be returning!!
