The ambiance, the music, the food and the 100 different vodkas, plus great service makes Moscow one of the best ethnic restaurants in MN.

We went there this past Saturday night at 7pm without reservations. The host staff went out of their way to find a way to seat us. We love the vodka flights, particularly the horseradish which comes with a small pickle. Chose the borscht with several appetizers which was hearty enough to be our meal. A gentleman was playing the accordian... More

Moscow on the hill has a wonderful outdoor space, including a vine covered gazebo that is perfect for cocktails, and the have some fun ones. I had a wonderful meal there - salmon that was barely and perfectly done, and the most wonderful dumplings.

Despite being known to some as a somewhat picky eater, I love trying new foods, especially dishes from different cultures. While I was a little nervous about what Russian food might be like during my first trip to Moscow on the Hill, my worry was needless. The atmosphere in the restaurant itself makes you feel right at home with its... More

We chose to eat here mostly because they were open on December 25. We were visiting the Twin Cities, so restaurant options were limited. It was an excellent choice, though, and we had a lovely dinner. We were seated before our reservation time, and service was friendly and efficient, particularly for a holiday. The waitress did a good job of... More

Our family visits Moscow on the Hill on a regular basis. We adore the menu: pelmene (dumplings), cabbage rolls, and brown bread to die for! We went last for our Christmas celebration. The Czar's Medallions and borscht were scrumptious! Highly recommend...

I met friends at Moscow for an early dinner and much to our surprise, they offer a great happy hour of appetizers and drinks. They offer 3 appetizers for $10.00 and 4 of the 5 in our group went this route. They offer 6 to 8 choices, all of which we really enjoyed. Drink options were also very reasonable. We... More

It was our first time eating Russian food, and it was outstanding! I started off with a cup of Borscht which was fantastic and i usually hate beets. My wife ordered the Babushka stew and I ordered Siberian Pelmeni. Hearty food. We finished it off with a light pastry with custard and fruit. It was a nice romantic atmosphere with... More

Love having appetizers and a martini in the outdoor back courtyard. Nice atmosphere - not noisy like some patios.
