Ate dinner here with a large group. It is a great place to come for a night of drinking (vodka, of course), eating good, solid food, and fun with friends. There is typically a roaming accordion player to spice up your evening, and the atmosphere is really fund and convivial. The menu selection isn't huge, and I would't call the... More

This summer was a fabulous cold beet soup . . . a Russian apple tart with remarkable ice cream . . . don't miss the $20 large appetizer platter if you are here with any sizable... More

The service is great and the food is very Russian. If you like ethnic food, you must try. 100's of vodkas.

I'd been looking for Georgian food when I stumbled across Moscow on the Hill. Excited about brunch, we made reservations for 11am on a Sunday. I will tell you, reservations weren't necessary for that time, but they were starting to get busier between 11:30 and noon. We enjoyed our drinks (though note that the kaffe drink is cold and not...

This one of my friend's favorite restaurants, and he wanted to go there tonight for dinner. I like sweet drinks, and one of their cocktails on the menu fit the bill. It was very good. I had the chicken blinis for my appetizer. They were bland, and there was some grizzle in it. Ick! My friend had the escarole. He... More

Everytime we go to Moscow we find ourselves at home. The service is great and very personalized, If you like vodkas, best place to go. More than 100 vodkas. The food is amazingly Russian and delicious. Desserts are superb. Appetizers are great as well as the entrees.

This restaurant has very unique and flavorful Russian dishes. The beef stroganoff was delicious and they have a vast array of vodka drinks! Staff is friendly and helpful and the space is very warm and cozy. Come with an appetite!
