Very welcoming staff who were accommodating and friendly when one of our diners was an hour late. It was nice to not be made to feel pressured to start without them. Food was fresh and nice quality. Small menu but good flavours. Cocktails are a definite!
Excellent service paired with a quirky interior, delicious range of dishes and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The concept/theme they have going is unparalleled in Adelaide. A unique experience, cannot recommend more.
Very pleased to find this restaurant. The food and service were exceptional and was presented at just the right moment allowing me to catch up with a good friend who I had not seen for some time.
Nice atmosphere, small portions but tasty.
The cocktails were interesting. The food wasn’t authentic aRusdian more like a hint of true. Russian cuisine. Prompt service and the correct discount added to the bill.
Great food and had the most wonderful young lady serve us...so friendly and focussed
We were very pleasantly surprised. The quality of food was excellent as was the service from all waiting staff. We were then encouraged to head downs stairs for a whiskey. What great experience!
Good food and nice surroundings, overall an enjoyable evening. It was good to try Russian beer. Dumplings were the best dish. The ice cream flavours sounded good so will try next time.
The atmosphere is relaxing and the service was friendly and efficient. The decor is rustic with wooden tables and hints at its Russian roots without going overboard. The same can be said for the menu. Excellent mainstream choices with a Russian flare.
Great tasting food, and we could book early before the ballet. It was a bit empty when we were there, but imagine it has more ambience later in the evening!
Interesting Russian cuisine with an Aussie touch.
Not a large menu but enough variety for all our tastes. Enjoyed the lamb main.
Food is tasty and beautifully presented, the venue Is nice and quiet
The waiter seemed a bit rude and snobby to us when we were ordering food and completely ignored us when we wanted to order more food. The lamb and pulled pork was really good but the trout was bland. Nice atmosphere
The Russian style food is very special and well-prepared. The atmosphere in the bar is relaxed. The drinking list is definitely a plus!
Great food and Wine - We chose the "Feed Me" option - Just tell the Chef your dietary preferences and she makes up a 3 course dinner for you , matched with 3 different wines ( 1 for each course) - Sensational! I suggest you try it. The White mousse with forest berries was unique and tasty.
Loved the food, cocktails were the star of the night!
Really disappointed with the food and service on Saturday night. I had high hopes coming in, only to be met with entrees and mains which lacked almost everything. The oysters were small and still had bits of shell attached upon consumption, hence needed more thorough cleaning. And my 'Rainbow Trout' was nothing but bones. It was embarrassing for my dinner guests to see me pulling bones out of my mouth every second, and so there's not much I have to say on that. The dumpling skin was overcooked, and overall, all dishes lacked flavour and punch. The crepes were soft and fluffy, but adding anchovies, some dollop of cream, fish roe, and dill for presentation does very little to really help elevate the dish.
Quiet for a Tuesday night, but good wholesome food enjoyed trying a new cuisine
The only slight negative was the constant disruption of groups of guests (weren't sure if they're paying guests or some were walk through) from front door to the side dining room to check out what's beyond the door (which has fire hydrant handle as door knob) Other than that we were happy with the food, the services, dining room.. Happy to be back in the near future
The Lamb Backstrap was cooked to perfection and the three sauces, that accompanied the lamb, very deliciously different.
Fantastic venue, gorgous fitout that accentuates the lovely historic bluestone building . Food was sensational, the flavours and presentation were very high end fine dining. I've been a few times now but haven't had a main meal there yet, lots of the smaller dishes are great to share with a group of friends. The owner served us last time and she was very patient and accomodating and was happy to take photos for us. unfortunately can't post photos of food here.... Whiskey bar downstairs is incredible, best range of whiskeys I've ever seen. Love this place....
Came back for a second time after booking on The Fork previously and having a great experience, this time with my partner for a pre-theatre show meal. Once again we shared the dumplings as an entrée, and I got the pearl barley mushroom risotto, which was very nice, but think I preferred the black noodles (which my partner got this time and I got last time) as these are delicious. House red surprisingly good!
Although the menu didn't have descriptions of what the items were, only really what they were comprised of, staff were more than happy to explain and answer any questions we had. Couldn't fault any of the food, everything was exceptionally tasty and have already recommended Red October to numerous people!
We went to Red October during our first ever visit to Adelaide as our Russian friends recommended this place. The food was great, staff really friendly and nice. Will definitely come back if we have a chance.
Cheesecake doughnuts were amazing - great service !
The service was wonderful and the staff are very knowledgeable. The food was lovely, thankyou for making our evening with friends so relaxed and inviting.
Enjoyable meal, great restaurant and bar. Thankyou
Great size desserts and great value deserts Need cheaper wine options
Great drinks, service needs improving. Guy just coming and going, looking like some dodgy transactions going on. People just talking near the kitchen, not very professional. Food was good though.
EatClub voucher ensured even better value.
A good night The service was really friendly and helpfull
Visited for Dumpling feast. Great spot & will be back to try the main menu
Great atmosphere and yummy food.
Friendly service, a little on the slow side initially but once our order was taken the food and drinks came quickly. Good food, decent price. I'd eat here again for sure.
Nice to try Russian cuisine.
The cherry donuts and pressed pork were our favourites! Enjoyed the dumplings on the dumpling festival menu too. Great night! will definitely visit again!
it was really good night!!!
Good service and food was nicely presented and a great taste of Eastern Europe. We’ll be back!
The lamb and squid ink noodles were good, although it did take a very long time for the food to come out despite the restaurant not even half full.
