    Yummy, authentic Ukrainian food and the atmosphere was so busy! Have wanted to try this place for a while and was not disappointed. I love that they have Ukrainians working there as well, it was fun to interact with them and feel at home. Will definitely be back!

    I always seem to end up here on my late night outings. Service is prompt and food comes quick. Positives: - Still has an authentic Ukrainian vibe - most dishes offered are traditional/familiar in Eastern Europe - open late Negatives: - it is really expensive though for most dishes - more on the commercial side then cozy - not sure if it is the best that the city can offer in Ukrainian food Will inevitably return, always do.

    Me and my best friend had one the best experience on Ukrainian food. Alexandra gave us nice suggestions. I highly recommend it

    Great food, great feel. Historic place in the east village. Definitely try the pierogies. You may not fill up with just 4 though, I recommend 8 (or getting a side dish). Personally I really like the short rib ones, even if they aren't traditional...

    Very good food and the personnel was very careful about our table. The food was very diverse and the prices very intermediates (between 10 and 15 dollars for a good amount of food). We had breakfast here and took the blueberries pancakes which are really good. Would go back to try Ukrainian food for sure! But also for having a good American brunch.

    Veselka is a traditional Ukrainian 24 hours restaurant located in East Village of New York City. This shop was established in 1954. I chose to go to Veselka since based on my research, it was one of the best. I came here to try out their stuffed cabbage which was indeed delicious. This is a great choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner while in New York City. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for classic and delicious Ukrainian eats. The stuffed cabbage contains pork and rice topped with mushroom gravy were flavourful, tasty and tender. The side order of Ukrainian beet does complement this meal very well. I love the sweetness and refreshing taste of the beet.

    Portions were average but the food was very tasty. Draft beer lines were all broken when I visited. Service was brisk, attentive and efficient. Will definitely go back and try other items but was not 5 star wowed

    The flavors are balanced and the portion size is big, but in general the flavor lacks complexity. I never had Ukrainian food before though, so I don't know if this is all normal for the cuisine. Service is average. The decor is fine but a few tables are arranged in a way that interferes with the service.

    This is a great place to eat the food is good in general and the staff is friendly. I highly recommend the beat salad it's very tasty and healthy which is a rare combination to find when eating out. The other good thing about this place is it is open all night so it's a great place to go if you need a late night bite.

    Having a Czech background, I just had to visit and see for myself if the food was as good as the reviews... This place exceeded all my expectations. The ambiance was amazing. I loved the decor, the friendly staff, the great service and most importantly, the food. The only down side to Veselka is that we do not have one back home!
