Great food, fun drinks

This place is great for drinks or a big meal, or both. I've been here with family, with friends, on a date, and with coworkers. Enjoyed myself every time. Sit on the patio and try the Moscow fries! Infused vodka shots are all delicious.

Vodka martinis are basically a glass cone of bad decisions. We got together with some friends on Friday. I showed up with an empty stomach and four inch heels. Fast forward 25 minutes and I was tipsy, tipping over and looking for trouble. So, I ordered another one... I know I ordered Chicken Kiev, and know I thought it was... More

This review is written months after dining at the restaurant - we thought that we would let our feelings abate to make the review as objective as possible. Seven adults and 2 children celebrated a family member's winter graduation from a local college. We ordered more entrees than the number of people and also ordered numerous appetizers and drinks, so... More

My daughter and I visited the James J. Hill mansion and walked over for an early dinner on a lovely August afternoon/evening! We were seated on their patio, which began to fill up quickly because of the beautiful day! We both ordered Moscow Mules, which were good, but I was disappointed that they were not served in copper mugs. We... More

This was my first experience with Russian food on such a grand scale. I'm glad I went with a group of 5 so that we could all share and taste each other's dishes. A martini before dinner seemed to be in order since they had a huge selection of various vodkas. I took my servers selection and had a horseradish... More

Always lots of interesting people at Moscow on the Hill, and of course great vodka drinks. My favorite - vodka and champagne!!

I'd heard great things about this restaurant and have wanted to try it for years. We were a party of 6, with reservations. We were seated promptly inside, but it was rather warm and felt cramped. Looking back, we should've taken advantage of their patio, but they don't take reservations for seating there. From the moment we sat down, I... More

MOTH is another Selby restaurant with history and circumstance. A friend and I decided to visit on a weekday. It was surprisingly busy, perhaps because it was a nice summer day. The patio was full, as one expects. One hopes its the food that's getting all the crowd there but the love of being outside can sometimes mask average experiences.... More

Such a unique style. The authentic Russian food and vodka drinks are a must to experience. I recommend the Moscow Mule or the Martini with Horseradish vodka - my favorite every time!
