All in all an okay experience... I wasn't in the greatest of spirits that night so I very well could be slighting Russia House a tad. I am again going to go back again soon to reevaluate, but for the wait, price and ambiance I am quite sure that no matter how many times I go back I will still believe that one could find better spots to frequent during their nighst out in the District.
This is a fabulouse place to start off with Martini's or even for a late night Martini! (or try the resturaunt). The ambience and decor are in coherence with an old 18th century Russian house. The food is exquisite - Nuevo Russian cuisine. The staff is very acoomodating and the venue is very intimate and homely. 2 blocks north of Dupont Circle!
