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.

My husband and I have enjoyed eating here many times. The Babushka Stew is fabulous! Great borscht- both hot and cold versions. The cold one is poured at the table from a cocktail shaker into a bowl of chopped cucumber, dill, and hard boiled egg. And oh the vodkas- so many to choose from. There are multiple house infused ones... More

I have eaten here with my elderly father who loves Eastern European food. The atmosphere is cozy, like an immigrant grandma's house. Some of the clientele are like my father who come for the dumplings and cabbage rolls. Some including my son-in law and daughter come for the flavored vodka flights at night. The dumplings and cabbage rolls are both... More

Overall the experience was not bad. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was nice. The main problem was the food. I had a pot roast/stew (I cannot remember the name of the dish). The pieces of meat were warm on the outside and very cold, almost frozen in the inside. My sister-in-law had the same thing, and said hers... More

I used to live in Russia and every now and again I just need Russian food. We live in Des Moines, but whenever we are in the Twin Cities we try to make it here for dinner. It is very authentic and everything that I remembered while living in Russia. I love their Siberian Pelmeni and their Beef Stroganoff. I... More

On vacation from the UK we stumbled on this place by chance. I have been lucky enough to travel to Russia a few times so I can say with confidence that the food is authentically Russian, especially the soups and dumpling dishes. We visited on a Sunday just before 6pm so took advantage of their "Happy Hour" prices which run... More

My gang from work loves "the Hill". The atmosphere is fun. We love the accordion music! The food is amazing. I'm a fan of the vodka infused with carmel! The staff is gracious and helpful. And the food is out of this world. The chicken kiev is amazing. I definitely recommend Moscow on the Hill for a fun night out.
