I adore going to the Russian Samovar - it's a must for me, at least once a month! Great atmosphere, great service, great food... Good to go with friends for a casual drink (the selection of vodkas is amazing!), or celebrate a special event - any time is a good time! Truly an authentic Russian spot that can only be rivaled by the restaurants on Brighton Beach.

The waitress, Marianna steered me through the menu and easily put up with my attempts at speaking my rusty Russian, Great food! Excellent selection of vodkas in which to complete the meal.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
