You have to deal with the lousy service at times but the food is fresh and expertly prepared. Cuisine is a mix of Armenian/Georgian/Turkish with some deviations, also featuring some common Russian dishes. Portions are small, so if really hungry, prepare to order a few dishes. Presentation gets high points. Some items on the menu are definitely worth trying. We had Artanish and Erebuni several times but their khinkali (Georgian dumplings) are a must. I particularly liked the lamb and found beef ones a little dry. Special skill is required to eat them, making sure you drink the broth inside a khinkali and eat the filling at the same time. Sounds simple? Not so much considering the size of a dumpling.
They usually offer you a choice of complimentary wine or one other drink to start your dining experience. The semi-dry wine we were offered came from Serbia. It is drinkable (and free!) but if you like dry wines, stick to their Caucasian medicinal tea (non-alcoholic). It sounds strange but it is a healthy drink and tastes good. Check their business lunch specials and be prepared to wait for khinkali as they make them from scratch. Takes anywhere from 10 to 20 min.

The restaurant position itself as a caucasian restaurant, it has a really impressive interior . The service is good, we were offered a free glass of decent wine which was very nice. However the food itself is just ok, it's an average side road type and quality of food that you can find everywhere in Russia, here is why:
* Chicken tabaka was not squashed nor flattened, had no garlic and was served with Korean marinated carrot, which I think is a crime - it was just a good cooked chicken but, not chicken tabaka in any sense
* Khinkali were too dry and not the right Khinkali taste - just a pelmeny, with meatballs inside, with a long handle
* salad leaves had traces of river sand that I felt on my teeth
* the menu has uzbek lagman, shurpa, and ukranian borshch soups - not very caucasian at all
* the background music choice is just terrible, the worst Russian gansta-pop
