Amazing! The dumplings are a must! Great atmosphere and service. Bottomless Bloody Mary bar with house infused vodkas.

Moscow On The Hill mirrors Russia's identity between East and West. Tall curtains add define the place's feel and a menu separate those who can and cannot pronounce "pelmeni." Delicious, real Russian food and an impressive list of alcoholic choices.

I had a wonderful experience here! Our party of 5 dined "family style," so we shared all the food and got to try a great assortment. We ordered many appetizers, 2 bowls of borscht (so good! It has potatoes and cabbage in it as well), 3 drinks (the Troika is amazing), a couple entrees, and 2 desserts. For five adults,... More

My wife and I live in the neighborhood and have been coming here for years. The food is consistently great. The borscht is so good we don't usually utter a word until our bowls are empty, perfect with rye bread and butter. The cabbage rolls are just like mom made and will spark nostalgia in most people over forty. The... More

Had dinner with friends at this restaurant while in town visiting. It was recommended by a local. We were not disappointed. I had the beef stroganoff, my wife had the salmon and my friend had the chicken Kiev. All were excellent and the vodka martinis were fixed perfectly. Mega varieties of vodkas. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are in... More

The food is spectacular too. My first visit, but not the last. Ask the wait staff for tips, they won't steer wrong. The salmon was great with dumplings and a sauce. The apps were special. I will return.

This being our second visit we loved as we did the first. It offers an incredible selection of standard, premium and creative vodka. The food is well-prepared, presented and delicious. It's our very favorite Twin Cities place for lunch, but I caution to come early if you plan on dinner later, and make that much later. The ambience is warm... More

A place I always stop on any visit to Minnesota. Excellent food and martinis, I recommend the pelminis and borscht, sorry if I misspelled them. I don't think you could go wrong with anything though. Only complaint is now the outdoor space is all smoking. It used to be only the upraised deck in back. I love sitting outside for... More

.....to have the best experience in the best Russian restaurant in the Twin Cities. Best service and hundreds vodkas. Great food if you like to try something different but very eclectic and also very palatable dishes. From duck to salmon to Czars Medallions. Desserts and appetizers are superb.
