We had such a wonderful time at this restaurant. The atmosphere was so much fun. Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable. Horseradish vodka! You must try it. We had borscht, and beet salad, and palmeni. Vegetarians can also be pleased here with the Givetch (spelling?), so delicious. Do not skip dessert. Get whatever the special dessert of the night...

We ate at the Moscow on the Hill on 4/10 and were happy that we did. It was a pleasant experience. The food was very good and the prices were reasonable. There were 4 of us and everyone was happy with their food.The deserts were good as well, especially the Teramisu. We had no complaints about the service. The only... More

Very tasty, although slightly on the salty side. Try the Chicken Kieve or the Babushka Stew. And don't forget to sample a flight of infused vodka!

The Happy Hour specials, both food and drink, are wonderful! The new expanded bar/lounge is beautiful. I'm so excited it's patio season. We dined on the patio, a little chilly out, but still charming and the plush blankets on the chairs made it all quite enjoyable!

I hesitate to say whether its best to visit in the winter when it's cold and snowy outside (like Russia) and warm and cozy inside or in the summer when they have a nice outdoor seating area. Just visit. Food is always good and fresh. Parking is on the street and I've never had an issue whether on car or... More

I've been to Moscow on the Hill several times with friends for lunch, happy hour, and dinner. The outdoor patio is a wonderful place to sit, either in the sun or in the shade. Inside seating offers a bar and tables. Try the best tasting Bloody Mary, with their own horseradish-infused vodka! The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The... More

A group of us went for dinner. This was our first experience and enjoyment of this restaurant. The atmosphere and design of the restaurant was very well done. It was broken into various spaces which allowed for a greater sense of intimacy. We were exploring the adventure of Russian food and were not disappointed. I had the Babushka Stew which... More

This special neighborhood is a perfect place for enjoying several ethnic choices, and this establishment is a delightful addition. Our second time dining here and both were excellent. We started off with two of their specialty martinis: the Ivan the Terrible and the Cranberry Cosmos. Both were generous with voand expertly blended. We noshed on the Cheboureki appetizer while we...

What a surprise! Group of 8 of us invaded Russia territory and came away wonderfully sated. Cherry vodka and Russian Concussion drinks to start. Tasty borscht, then, bottle or two of wine to complement the perfectly done Chicken Kiev, and the Pelemi dumplings. Also sampled the Beef Stroganoff from somebody's plate. Delicious. Strolling accordion takes requests. Looking for Sigourney Weaver... More
