More about The Russian Tea Room

Opulent and grand, The Russian Tea Room in New York offers elegant fine dining in sophisticated surroundings. Superb continental cuisine with Russian fare is the key focus at the exquisite Russian Tea Room.

The elegant interior features bold red leather banquettes and Art Deco design. Full of character, Russian Tea Room has been a cultural hub in New York for over 80 years, after the members of the Russian Imperial Ballet founded the restaurant in 1927.

Full of delicious classics, the menu includes signature dishes like beef stroganoff,
poached lobster salad or chicken kiev with caramelized wild rice. High Tea at The Russian Tea Room includes sandwiches and blinis along with cupcakes, seasonal scones and petits fours. A fine selection of loose leaf teas will complement the high tea, with the optional accompaniment of champagne.

Close to New York's Carnegie Hall, the vibrant tradition of the Russian Tea Room legacy is still alive to this day.

The food and tea were lovely! The staff was pleasant. Virtually the only disappointing part of the afternoon was the cleanliness of the bathrooms. For $65/person I expected the toilets to be clean.

very nice interior decoration, loved the blinis and the caviar, very nice polite waiters; somewhat disappointed that the bear glass acquarium that was seen in the advertisement was closed.

We were there for high tea. Having had high tea before and at $60/head, we had "high" expectations.
It was just after Christmas, so we knew it would be busy, but the service was surprisingly slow - not leisurely but slow. Service and presentation were a bit sloppy. I had not expected tea bags, but loose tea. We had to ask for a refill of hot water. Also, clotted cream is a nicer touch with scones than butter. Decor is great fun and I am glad we went, but won't be back. The sandwiches were the best part.
