    I will think twice before I ever go there again!! Everything was arranged: I discussed the menu with the chef-cook Ella, ordered a birthday cake from her and left a deposit. My biggest concern was that that there was enough food. The chef assured me that there would be more than enough. On Saturday morning I called to confirm that there were going to be 10 ppl. However, they messed up. The food that I ordered was never served. I even discussed with Ella what type of cake I want for the Birthday guy! But we did not get the cake!!!!! How come??! If we did not have our own cake, that would have been a disaster. The bottom line: mediocre food, OK service, and horrible management. They did all they could to f... up the birthday party: forget about the cake, put unopened wine bottles on the table (literally, I had to ask 3 waiters to open the bottles), ignored my preferences regarding the food. I can say my guests were not happy - I would not be happy!!! I went to Samarkand a couple times - it's great there!!! Music, food, service!!! Never-ever let GG ruin your party - go to Samarkand instead!!!

  • great service.

    I am using this restaurant to have my wedding there in October. Great service so far. The invited me and my fiance to sit and listen to their band and eat their music at no cost. I have eaten there 3 times already at no cost, just because I am having a wedding in October. My parents were in town for the weekend and they allowed 10 people in to enjoy the music and the food. I had such a good time! The owner stopped by to chat to us several times and overall I am really pleased and can't wait to have my wedding here in October!


    We have been going here for many years and find that it has gone downhill a bit. The food is just passable,the music is nice,but the place seems too crowded and a bit dirty.
    There are many nicer Russian places around today.

  • Fun time for all

    Liked the place,but thought the food could be better.
    The show and dancing were nice and the crowd was all very nice. It is a bit hard to find,but once there it was enjoyable.

  • Excellent food, plenty of eye candy, dance till you drop

    Sometimes real entertainment gems lie off the beaten path. This is the case here. If you want an authentic ""Russian Immigrant Restaurant"" atmosphere, this is your bet. I can't say how authentically Russian this restaurant is, considering that the cuisine offered is Eurasian fusion, and the clientele is Ukrainian Jewish people, but music is mostly contemporary Russian pop sprinkled with occasional Italian, French or Turkish pop creation. One thing for sure: come prepared to dance until 2 a.m. with a crowd of mixed ages. This dance floor does not discriminate. You will see 60-years-olds doing rad dance moves alongside hot and uncommonly thin scantily clad twenty-somethings. Come for food, but come for entertainment as well for there are often invited performers on stage mixing with the restaurant's energizer bunny singers . Mmm, what's not to love? Beautiful women, attractive men, dancing till morning... Come and explore! P.S. Ladies, did you know Russian men do not believe in ever going Dutch with a woman? One more reason to think outside the box when looking for Mr. Right.

  • Best Russian place in town... one of the best on the East Coast

    Golden Gate offers unique experience of a ""Russian-style"" party: tons of food, live music and very entertaining atmosphere. It's pretty far from Center City, but it's worth trying at least once
