Anyone seeking Russian flamboyance in a dramatic setting has found the right place. The decor is wall-to-wall red and gold velvet—somewhat decadent and spy novel secretive. It makes for a cozy yet intriguing evening, especially when influenced by a couple of flavoured vodkas. The menu is Franco-Russian exile-style, exemplified by a revisionist blend of Beef Stroganoff on linguine with a side of broccoli, carrots and snow peas. Then there is the caviar, which starts at CAD49 for two. Service is friendly and professional, and the vodka smooth.
Excellent food (Russian/French cuisine), classy decor, professional service, excellent location (around the corner from the Museum of Fine Arts). Worth the trip (from Shelburne/Burlington Vermont) just for the dining experience.
My ladyfriend and I went to Troika last night. It is located about half a block from a strip of tourist traps including Hard Rock Cafe, but even on a Friday night Troika was not crowded. The restaurant is at underground level, and is decorated in Russian style, with red walls and Russian art. There were a pair of musicians, a violinist and a guitarist, wandering around the aisles playing music nicely.
The menu consists of French and Russian-inspired dishes. Neglecting the $45 three-course prix-fixe menu, we skipped the appetizers and dove straight into the entrees, priced from $25-$40, and into the impressive wine list, priced from $40 all the way to $600-700 for the best offerings from the cellar. I ordered the tenderloin in the style of Peter The Great, which was served in port reduction with foie gras. My companion opted for the duck breast. Both meals were absolutely delicious; the tenderloin in particular was utterly without flaw. The dessert menu ($7-$10) was more than ample, and with its help we devoured creme brulee and Russian chocolate cake.
The meal came to $160 for two entrees, a bottle of wine and two desserts. Troika is pricey, but we're still buzzing from the meal the next day. It was worth every cent.
I can never understand why this place is not busier. I have been there at different times in my visits to Montreal and I have never had to wait for a table. The place has a wonderful mysterious charm to it; it seems to be as much a local hang out for Russian emigres as it is a fine, welcoming restaurant. The cuisine is classic, (Tsarist) Russian and wonderfully entertaining. I recommend following the waiters advice on the frozen vodkas, and by all means, end your dinner with a "glass of tea" from the samovar!
