Very good food, very good time – I was a bit unsure about this place because of the back and forth reviews on here, but after going here myself with my family, I can honestly say that it was one of the best dining experiences I've had.
Delicious food, fun music, great energy, and clean environment. I loved it. I really enjoyed this one dish (I forget the name) but it had mushrooms inside of chicken, but it was prepared in such a way that was really appetizing.
I'll definitely be coming back.
Surprinsingly good – I had to plan a surprise birthday party for my mother and I needed something close to where she lived, and this restaurant seemed to be a good choice.
however when I researched this place online, I saw that people loved it or hated it. I didnt want to risk going here if theirs a chance that I too might hate it, so I started to look for a different restaurant. but i read noticed that of the people who liked it, they gave 4 5 stars, and people who hated gave 1. so I was curious and decided to try it. I only had to plan a party for 16 people, no big deal.
basically, I can say that my family and friends all enjoyed very much this restaurant. the food was very delicious, music was good, service was fast, place was clean, and has very good price . most importantly, the have clean a bathroom.
we even met owner who walked around from table to table, and after he met us, he sang a song very beautifully for my mother! he was very sweet and offered her a free pastry!
our party of 16 felt like we were the VIPs in the restaurant.
наша семья больше не будет заказывать банкеты в этом рестора – апрель 2 2011
Я праздновала в этом ресторане свой день рождения. Еда шикарная ,вкусная и разнообразная,музыка веселая,ребята поют очень хорошо , любимые песни официанты обслуживают быстро и отлично.Вечер прошел великолепно,но в конце всё испортил менеджер ресторана. Когда заказывали банкет была одна договоренность оплаты ,а в конце вечера предъявилась совсем другая,В меня пишеться - lobster -но нам на 28 человек почему-то дали всего 6 штук - это что,получаеться lobster на пятерых? Я считаю что это обдуриловка
Вот такие пару моментов оставили неприяноге впечатление об этом ресторане и в следующий раз я больше чем уверена что мы туда непойдем и не посоветуем друзьям
Very impressed. Definately going back. – I went with my husband to this restaurant after hearing about the food and entertainment that this establishment is apparently known for. I was rather blown away.
The food was wonderful. The Russian menu was very satisfying and rather diverse. I am Russian myself and I saw (and tried) some foods that I didn't even know existed. They were delicious!
The musicians were outstanding. A wonderful selection was played for people who wanted to dance the night away while also having songs here and there that serve the purpose of allowing for a romantic slow dance. THE SINGER WAS UNBELIEVABLE. If anything, you have to go JUST to hear him sing. Simply beyond words. I LOVED IT.
The service was very prompt and helpful. A lot of the servicemen and women looked to be in their early 20s, and they were surprisingly looked like they WANTED to serve my husband and I. I didn't know what certain foods on the Russian menu were, but my waiter was able to explain to me what most of them were, well enough that I made an order that I was very satisfied with.
Lastly, the place was beautifully decorated, and was very clean. I tried to think of something to complain about, but I honestly couldn't, we were literally treated like royalty.
Lovely time indeed.
Sidenote: I was expecting a rather average restaurant/nightclub experience due to the price we paid, but this is why this place deserves a 5 star rating. The steal of a bargain. Once again, terrific.
I recommend if you want to feel cheeted – Management is awful. Waiters (except one who didn’t serve our party, he was later-on helping to organize it more. Unfortunately I do not know his name.) was absolutely unprofessional: alcohol was not unpacked and not put on table; just a little peace of lobster was brought back after taking to cut. It seems like a main food was a Caesar salad. Oh! Yes, it was every where! Cheap and a lot! Sushi was not sushi but sashimi (rice and vegetables). One of the waiter look like a sick person. I asked if he was sick? Answer was not, but I noticed him like under drugs or something. Another trick was a plate. If you have not much food what do you do? You serve it in small plate. Here we go! In self respected restaurant you have large diameter plate and food laying in it free and beautiful not in this restaurant. Escargot! How many times I’ve enjoyed this food in other places. God Help me! Their Chef (if they have any) has no idea how to prepare this food. Dessert was not tasty. Looks like ordered in cheapest bakery. Decoration I ordered was made without any care just somehow. You know… The restaurant is dying, may be it was good in past but now is awful. Though performer was good. Owner need to survive, however money closes their mind. Rip-off. Not even one star. I didn’t say them anything just to not spoil my day.
AMAZING TIME!!!! – I created an account just for this review!
I went to Vernisazh on this past New Years Eve, and IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AN AMAZING NIGHT OUT!!
I made a reservation for myself and 6 other friends. Right off the bat that was hassle-free and they were very accomodating.
When we arrived, we were entered the beautifully decorated restaurant in LITERAL AWE of how much thought went into it. It wasn't ornamental or gratuitous, it was literally decorated with such taste that you felt as though you were in a wonderland and right at home, all at the same time.
Coat check went by with no trouble, and we began our way to our tables. Again, the entire place was decorated beautifully!
We took our seats and began with the food. It was truly delicious and quite diverse as well. Our table had Russian cuisine, along with some Sushi and hand rolls. THAT'S RIGHT, AUTHENTIC HANDROLLS!! Ridiculous!
The waiting staff were very alive that night. They literally gave us whatever we asked for, they NEVER SAID.
For example, a friend of mine (who was piss drunk at the time) asked for another bottle of champagne to be brought for the other side our table (even though both sides had relatively full bottles already), and the waiters came back within the next minute offering to pour it in our glasses!!! BRAVO!
The music was great. Great band, great music, great songs! We danced the night away really well.
And here's what sold me: THE SHOWS.
In between the dancing, the eating, the receiving free prizes, etc., Vernisazh put on a few shows to entertain the audience.
There was a Santa Claus who came out for the kids and all those young at heart, a Ninja performing martial arts stunts, a clown acting wacky, an Arabian belly-dancer, and guitar players from the band doing guitar tricks!
No words can describe the amount of fun I had here. From the food to the shows, to the music and decor, I was in paradise.
Definitely coming back for the next New Year's Eve party, if not sooner.
McDonald's is much much better. – If you prefer the McDonalds this restorant just for you, But McDonalds have a clean and neat service, neat toilet. This restorant 's toilet I saw only back to Russia 20 years ago and only public ones. The service was terrible. They even didn't have a spring water, only from sink.They took a cups by hands inside the cups and you have to use them after . The food was warmed up , noy cooked the same day.The owner explained the dirty mess in toilet that our people don't know how to use a toilet. But how the same people used them in others restorants?
Don't waist your money over there. I felt sorry for my friend who spent money over there.
Деньги потрачены не зря – Я недавно заказал банкет для моего свадебного торжества и моя жена и я были очень рады. Этот ресторан был в состоянии принять более 50 из наших близких друзей и семьи. Они дали нам большое меню для выбора пищи из, музыка была очень танцевальная, и показывает, были очень интересны, а также.
Владелец ресторана был там праздновал вместе с нами, и он даже пел нам песню красиво!
В общем, мы в конечном итоге платить намного меньше денег, чем мы ожидали, поэтому мы были более чем довольны нашей ночи.
Спасибо Вернисаж для нашей удивительной ночи, и воспоминания!
THIS IS THE VERNISAZH that I orignally meant to write for! – I just realized that I posted my review for THIS restaurant on the page for ANOTHER restaurant called Vernisazh by accident. I've been to this one, no the other lol
What I wrote was:
"I've been here twice, and both times were awesome. BF tells me that their New Years parties are where it's at, and although I've never been here on New Years, I can only imagine!
Great food for a great price, very good music taste, and decent service. One thing I was taken back by was the clean silverware, which if you dine in Brooklyn, will understand what I mean. "
Good Resturant – Considering the location, I wasn't expecting it to be so classy. Really beautiful place, WITH EXOTIC FISH IN HUMONGOUS TANKS, great food, fast service. I had a real blast and recommend to anyone who wants to eat well for a good price.
