Wonderful couple and 1 server provided wonderful service and delicious Russian food. They served a delicious dinner one hour before closing! We were not rushed in any way. Go after movies or play and enjoy.

Enjoyed a delightful lunch - beef pie and red beet salad (although the salad was a little sweet for my tastes) and outdoor seating with umbrellas. Nice looking menu. The restaurant inside is cozy and inviting. Looking forward to returning sometime for their blinis which sounded delicious. I don't think you'll find the usual Bay Area organic, gluten-free etc. but... More

It was my first time eating Russian food here. Came here with my family. The service was top notch. The owner was great at recommending food for us since we never had Russian food before. Even recommended food he thought kids would enjoy. The food was delicious. Owner was attentive throughout the meal. Outdoor seating is available.

Russian food is pretty rare in California, and maybe for good reason. We tried to order a variety of dishes (at least of those that sounded good) but most of the food turned out to be pretty similar and quite tasteless. The staff is also what you'd expect from Russia; not terribly interested in your dining experience.

I first visited this restaurant in their older, much smaller location. The owners are charming, but the food has been nothing special for my visits. I would love to enjoy this place, as the family run business is hard to find. I must admit, I'm a vegetarian and this may be much better if you eat meat.

We enjoyed our meal here in this delightful restaurant. We both had beers. We shared their Seliodka (picked Herring). I had Pelmeny s Myasom, Siberian Dumplings Filled with Beef and Pork. My husband had Kurinaya Pechonka. (chicken liver nest). We both thought the food was superb. It was a busy night so our server was working very hard and did... More

With all of the Russian immigrants working in the tech industry in this area, I have often wondered why there are not more Russian restaurants. We stumbled into this family-owned, neighborhood place after catching a movie at the local theater and we loved it. The décor is Russian red, and pretty spare but the host/owner was friendly. The menu was... More

We have eaten at Russian Family Restaurant several times. Each time the food has been excellent. Everything is so fresh. The soups are delicious, and very unique. Potato Vareniki are delicious, with carmelized onions and sour cream on top. The chicken pelmeny are my 6 year old sons favorite dish - basically chicken raviolis with a little green onion. He...

I have never been to Russia so I don't know if this place is authentic. I just know the food is very good. I have been there three times in the past year when I have been in town. I tried something different each time and was never disappointed. Very friendly staff. Clean establishment with reasonable prices.

My wife and I ate there last night she had the Beef Stroganoff which she really liked and I had the Classic Russian soup w/sauerkraut and beef which was so tasty and for my main entree I had the Georgian-style stewed chicken w/herbs, tomatoes & potatoes which was also very good. They also have a good selection of draft beer... More
