Review of Old Samovar

Old Samovar
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The service is out of hands, the food is mediocre. The kitchen is small and dirty. They only have one toilet for both male and female, it’s small and filthy, just like their kitchen.
If you prefer to be ignored at all times at your table to the point where you have to beg for water, if you are ok with half of the menu items to be out of stock, if you love tiny plate of regular fried potatoes (was not cooked through) for a whooping $20 - that’s your place.

You know there's a problem when the young waitress does not wear a mask. When we asked her to put one on, as she was up in our faces at the table, she said she didn't ' to.We asked for the manager, who also had a rotten attitude, and she said no one was required to wear one. We nevertheless less ordered 2 entrees, one of which came first and cold, a beef stroganoff with mashed potatoes, not noodle, and no beef. The second entree came a full half hour later, very tough and tasteless lamb kebobs.When asked for the check, after waiting forever for waitress, there was an 18% service charge on the bill. We asked for it to be taken off and they said they couldn't. After almost calling the police the matter was resolved when the other person in our party spoke her native Russian to the management and told them off. Apparently the only thing they understood. Don't go.

Cozy interior, nice home made Russian food, but the overall atmosphere is like you came to a party of a few drinking and loud Russians who are in friends with the owners. The music is so bad that it reminds you of these road-side clubs somewhere on the outskirts of Russia.

The owner was so rude asking us at the door if we going to order hot dishes, she refused to serve us salad only. Explaining us that she pays big rent and how hard for her to survive at this time, pointing to totally empty restaurant at 7p.m. We just left, refusing to pay any amount of money for such a disrespectful behavior.
