This was our first time here and we were escorted to a nice dining table with curtains surrounding the table. It was so cozy and intimate. I then received the cocktail menu with so many descriptive fascinating cocktails. I just let our waiter pick out...More

I really enjoyed the food here. I have to admit that it was a bit of a surprise. It offers a nice change of pace as far as for options in that I'm not aware of a plethora of Russian good options in the area....More

Moscow on the Hill is near downtown St. Paul and has traditional Russian cuisine. Their borst is excellent and they often have different types. In the summer opt for the courtyard where you may delight in being serenaded by an acordion player. Consider the Sunday...More

Great cocktails. Came I. After a performance and wanted a drink and small plate. The main man at the front door was confusing and annoying. He didn’t want to seat us where we wanted and we ended somewhere else. He really didn’t care that we...More

Reservations strongly suggested. We were seated right away. Even tho' it was busy (a Friday eve), we were seated quickly and had water and beverages right away. Tables could be a bit bigger. Food had a lot of Russian entree's, but it was hot and...More

Both the borscht and veggie dumplings were outstanding. Other healthy choices available. Excellent service. Dining room pleasant, especially with a window table. However, the large bar does dominate the entrance. Do appreciate that the bar is the source of the extensive selection of beer and...More
