My husband and I visited the Durdin Restaurant at another one of their 4 Moscow locations on Big Polyanka, 54. We found service very good, food delicious (yummy pelmini, calamari). Several beers on draft. Good atmosphere.
Our server spoke English - ask for Ludmila.

Huge place in a faux-19th-century industrial style, with low canned music. The live band that played when I was there was incredible (folksy slavic jazz), but very, very loud. Service was fine (some mishaps initially, but they made up for it). The beers are not bad, but nothing terribly special.

The waiter lied to my face to try to squeeze more rubles out of me, the pelmeny was bland and covered in canned cream of mushroom soup (this is a restaurant?) and the cavernous place lacked soul. The beers were largely mediocre. Not a satisfying visit.
