A friend of mine took a group of us to this restaurant. I have to say that the atmosphere is by far the best I have been too. It kinda reminds you of old Hollywood with rich woods, dark red curtains, live band, and dance floor. There were 9 in our group so we had the buffet menu. I ordered the ribeye steak while my husband got the lamb chops. Prior to the main course coming to our table, we had ridiculously amounts of appetizers, cold salads, hot dishes, wine, vodka, etc., etc. It took a long time to get our main courses served to us, but it was worth the wait. The steak was amazing and my husband said they really know how to cook lamb, so I'm assuming that means it was good. The band played non stop, the dance floor was full and at some point some beautiful women in skimpy costumes got onto the bar and danced. Then at around midnight the acrobat show started. WOW! We left shortly after the acrobat show so not sure what happens from midnight to closing, but I'm sure we missed something special.

This is definitely more of a club than a restaurant. Food is average at best, but prices are higher than at Spago. Been there twice - second time ate before and brought my own wine and therefore enjoyed it more. Entertainment is o'key - they have one jazzy singer that is good. Interiors are beautiful, but overall everything is a bit sleazy and pretentious.

THIS is a worst restoran I hav ever been, I am russian, But I feel sorry for the owner. First of all, I would fire the staff, whole staff, becouse, dorrman was trying to sell a whor....for 300$, bartender , was trying to sell the same whor... for 350 $ and the weiters was trying to sell that whor... for 400 $. So, my point is if you not hungry and you need a whor... , please go there)))))), minus - 10000000

The worst experience ever. The place is filled with thugs; security is busy clearing fights all the time. There is no culture, no service, the worst possible crowd, mixed with bad food and slimy entertainment. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY IN THAT WHOLE!!!!!!

bad live pop russian music. very bad food. VERY. had big chef's menu. $$$ per person, 6 people. steak way overcooked and took over an hour to receive. ordered rare. received tough grey steak-shaped cardboard. asked if they can make it rare instead. was told, this is as rare as we can cook. asked manager, asked waitress, not possible to get a new steak. ""chef refuses to make a new one"" impossible to cut thru. customers treated pretty bad in this place. wayy overpriced chef's menu. AVOID.

Place was empty.....lot's of sizzle and no steak. The interior is absolutely gorgeous, but the food and service were absolutey horrid considering what they charged.
I did feel like I was in Russia.....or maybe it was Armenia.

My wife and I recently had our wedding there and the place and the food was exceptional. We where very happy with the staff and how quickly they got things done within seconds. I searched and searched for a restaurant that is unique and different and Romanov stood out and I couldnt believe such a restaurant exiested.
Since the wedding, I have visited Romanov about three times for dinner and my wife and I have been amazed each and every time. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone thats looking to enjoy the dinner with some nice Russian music.
