We met a family member here for dinner. I hadn't been here for years and was really looking forward to fantastic and authentic Russian meal. In the time from my last visit they have done a total remodel and the place looks great! The food was as perfect and on point as I remember. This is the only place I... More

My 16 year old daughter and I stopped here for dinner before a concert at the Xcel Center. My daughter loves anything that is not American, so we decided to give this Russian restaurant a try. We are so glad we did! I ordered the Serbian dumplings and they were beyond delicious. My daughter ordered the stroganoff and it was... More

Our party of 4 enjoyed a lovely dinner here. The dumplings are always good as are the cabbage rolls. The black bread is right from Russia --- or so it seems. I prefer the vegetarian dumplings though others in the party had those with meat. ( I can't spell their choices). Servers were friendly and always available. It is a... More

I sooooo wanted to like MOTH; the reviews from others are glowing, it's jam-packed with patrons at most hours; and, it's been a St. Paul institution forever. And it does some things really well. Great vodka list (sampled quite a few), excellent service, prices are reasonable. But virtually everything we ate was just bland and unremarkable; the beef stroganoff in... More

Delicious Russian food! We enjoyed the flavorful cheese bread appetizer. Entrees included stuffed dumplings, pork chop, and beef stroganoff. We shared two tasty desserts. You cannot go home without choosing a vodka martini from their extensive list of vodka. Decor was traditional Russian- very nice. Waitstaff was efficient, if not overly warm. First time I have tried a Russian Restaurant,... More

This is my hideaway. I love the atmosphere here. I usually come for happy hour but dinner here has been spot on, too. They make delicious cocktails and the food is comforting. I love their borscht!

I loved the list of cocktails they had- so many fun, unique drinks to try! The dumplings were very tasty, and the salmon was perfect. I was pleasantly surprised how fun it was and will return!

When I saw the words "clay pot", I had to have babushka. Years ago at a Georgian restaurant in Azerbaijan, I ate a wonderful stew made in a clay pot. Delicious there; delicious here! My husband said the beef stroganoff was "wondrous!--its full rich flavor was a delight." The parsley mashed potatoes were exquisite--probably the best mashed potatoes he'd ever... More
