  • What a cool place and awesome staff!! Don't stop on vodkas, try their yummy food too! P.S. -, , ! :)
  • Be ready to enter Soviet Russia and get a great meal in grandma's living room in the back!
  • Wonderful Place To Eat & Drink Russian Style. !!!!!
  • Theres something conspicuously ironic about the vibe nightclub in front, little-old-lady-quaint in back but the diverse menu has some sincere standouts, like the Ukrainian borscht and Uzbek plov.
  • Reader tip: Authentic and delicious Eastern European food, plus around 50 different infused vodkas.
  • ) )))
  • The food was great, and the service top notch--it's rare to find servers this attentive or friendly. My favorites were the mussels in cream sauce and the lavender spritzer!
  • Complimentary shot of vodka with dinner. Why hasn't anyone else mentioned this!
  • Hunter's Plate is great with unbelievable tasting sausage and melt in your mouth salo. Great mix of meats and veggies.
  • Request a flight of infused vodkas. They have every flavor from smoky BBQ to apple cinnamon. Some nonalcoholic honey drink they made = nectar of the gods.
  • Try the Fig Vodka
  • Your visit to the Russian House is not complete unless you taste a few of the infused vodkas.
  • As good as it gets. Even compared to Brighton Beach!
  • Kvas is a non-alcoholic beverage that tastes like a low carbonated honey soda.
  • Ancient Russian Solyanka is a fantastic meaty/brothy soup with olives. Would be amazing on a cold Russian day...or for our three day winter here in Austin.
  • Try the Ukrainian Borsch and the Ancient Russian Solyanka. They have lots of infused vodkas. They even have outfits that you can wear and take pictures with and plenty of private rooms.
  • You can't go wrong when eating here. Anything with mushrooms is amazing, too.
  • Horseradish infused vodka shots.
  • Love this place! Start with the stuffed mushrooms and then get the hunters plate!!! Follow with vodka!
  • Half price apps on Mondays! Tango lessons on Tuesdays! Love this place!
