  • 5 star rating  Easily one of the best restaurants in Walnut Creek.  The food is absolutely delicious.  It is a very low key restaurant, not trying to be hip or modern or particularly fancy.  Straightforward menu with mostly traditional Russian/Eastern European dishes.  But the flavors are incredible and you can tell they are using really high quality ingredients.  I consider this place a gem, something from another time when flavor and quality were more important than social media or glitz.  Highly recommended.

  • 5 star rating  What a wonderful discovery! It's a Russian fine dining at its finest without the super sized prices. The food was delicious, the service was gracious and we will definitely be going back. They also have a deli which is part of the restaurant.  We had some fun cocktails and fine wines from Romania and Georgia. The chef gave us delicious food, and their Napoleon pastry is one of the best in California. I have yet to taste a better Napoleon here.

  • 5 star rating  Very friendly service from both the waitress and the chef, who came out to chat with our table. Got recommendations for food that did not disappoint. Tastey and fresh food, very filling. Also unique wine selection.

    Outdoor seating available on nice days but nice indoor atmosphere as well.

  • 5 star rating  Babushka rocks! I've been there several times and the review is way overdue. Tonight- the special touch was a bunch of fresh tulips on the table: so charming! . It's the details that make a difference. However, the food is the star here: we ordered golubtsi( cabbage rolls), lamb shank, 2different soups and a salad. The presentation and serving dishes were outstanding - and everything was super delicious. If I had to make one suggestion: the salad could have used some salt- but it was easy to fix on the spot. Service is attentive, professional and friendly. Highly recommend!
