    Such a great place, even for not super adventurous eaters! We went with our servers suggestion of family style and got a couple cold appetizers, some of the dumplings, two entrees, and two desserts and split everything between 6 people and it was perfect! Great food, great service, great ambiance!

    Excellent service. Everyone was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. The ambiance was fun and cozy, and the food presentation was very nice. The lepyoshka was a bit tough/stale, and I was not a fan of the Baltic sprats recommended by our waiter. Other than that, everything else (pelmeni, shashlik, caviar, meat/cheese board) was delicious. The cocktails were very fresh and balanced.

    Food was fun, atmosphere great, host was unwelcoming and pretentious (almost left because who wants to be made to feel like trash upon arrival), but our server was attentive, accommodating, and gracious. 5 stars because of her and the magic that came from the kitchen!

    This is a wonderful restaurant -- we have been quite a few times -- sort of miss the old place. The menu is wonderful -- not so great if you're are gluten and dairy free like me-- although the options were helpfully pointed out and the staff was very nice. I longed to try the rabbit in a clay pot -- its got dairy in it .

    Wow! First time with Russian/Ukrainian/Georgian cuisine and it was definitely a great experience. Wait staff was very knowledgeable and attentive. It's a classy restaurant with upscale staff but a very laid back vibe. Food is something very special. Travel from far to go to this place. It's worth it!

    Every time I’m in Portland for work I make sure to come here. All time favorite restaurant. Food was wonderful, when I asked for suggestions on a vodka flight instead of a quick mention of some preferred brands I had a staff remember engage me about different types and varieties trying to gauge my tastes. Wish the lamb tartare were still on the menu but no problem, those dumplings are amazing

    A happy hour special was offered that had one portion of my favorite, goluntd ei(stuffed cabbage) a long with a cold soup with pickled vegetables. And a fruit compote. It was perfect. My partner had the he lamb and we finished with an ice cream Sunday and coffee. As always the service was wonderful. This is why it is one of our favorite restaurants.

    The food was really creative , and for the most part tasted fabulous. We loved everything except the rabbit, which seemed dry and overcooked compared to other clay pot rabbits I've had. Service was great, and the waiter explained everything very well. Food was delivered in a very timely way. The only thing that gives a bit of a star knock is the fact that the music playing was so loud. We were sitting in the "room" section, and it made it hard for us to have a conversation. I'm too old man. ;)

    The service was excellent, but the food left a lot to be desired. I come from a family of East Europeans and so have a first-hand knowledge of what the items on the menu should taste like. The cabbage rolls weren't bad. They were the best of what I tasted. The soup was bland, almost flavorless. Same with the pickles. I asked for an order of pan-fried vareniki. What I received was deep-fried. Since I don't believe anything can measure up to what I'm used to, I won't be coming back.
