A deliberately faded elegance, like a Communist-era club gone rough around the edges, permeates Pravda. Huge paintings of Mao Tse-tung adorn the brick walls, and crystal chandeliers run the length of the two-story room with exposed ductwork. Weekday happy-hour specials draw after-work clientele to lounge on well-worn leather sofas, around low wooden tables, or in a red-velvet-curtained VIP bottle-service area upstairs. Some 75 to 100 vodkas from around the globe are always on the menu, as are vodka flights, martinis, Czech and Russian beers, and caviar, smoked fish, and pierogi.

Absolutely horrendous! Easily one of my worst dining experiences in Toronto. The staff are extremely rude and ignorant, specially the “manager”/doorman! He has the biggest ego and attitude. Let’s just say we only stayed there for 10 minutes and left without evening ordering drinks or food. Their “mature” crowd consists of your grandparents. Will never go there again nor recommend it to anyone I care about. So overrated and classless!
