Excellent authentic Russian food. The patio is the place to enjoy all your favorite Russian dishes and we tried most of them

Dining on the patio is a treat. Vibrant atmosphere with strolling musician creates a special experience. Unique menu serving up comfort food rather than fine dining. Loved the dumplings and the Chicken Kiev. Nice cocktail menu as well.

Visited for my birthday as usual. This is a family run business and it's so friendly and fun and good! I don't get to come as often as I'd like but it's neat that I even recognize the staff every time I come. This evening...we enjoyed the Ukrainian Beet Salad, and my mom had the Zakuski Platter, which has been a little different each time we order and I had Siberian Pelmeni. For drinks, we ordered a Baryshnikov instead of our usual Mariana Gold. It was awesome. Thank you for a great birthday experience!More

We were concluding a drive around the upper Midwest with a final night in St. Paul. Moscow on the Hill proved to be a wonderful concluding evening with a delicious dinner and interesting drinks and very attentive service. Reservations were clearly required for a Saturday...evening and the place was quite full of folks. There are several sections and each seemed quite intimate This meant that the sound level was impressive--this would not be the time or place for an intimate conversation. But perhaps on a weekday evening it would be a bit less loud. Our meals were very nicely prepared--we shared a plate of the palmeni while we enjoyed a couple of inventive vodka-based drinks. Our mains of the cabbage rolls and a special for the night of Russian meatballs with a caper sauce were outstanding. The pickled beets cut through the richness and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. We could not reasonably take on the interesting dessert menu and left feeling very full and very happy. I spent a lot of time in the Twin Cities many years ago; oh how I wish a place like Moscow on the Hill had been open then!!More

I have been here a few times and it is always good. We had the Zakuzki plate as a starter. This a great selection of items and fed 6 people nicely. My main course was beef stroganoff. Very good and a nice portion but for...$26 it should be. Everyone liked their meals. ( or there would not have been 4 stars ) The table shared tiramisu and a ganache tart. Service was only OK. Our waitress did not come to our table for a long time when we were ready to order.More

Moscow on the Hill is one of our favorite restaurants. Food and service were fantastic and the patio is lovely. We had the Salmon, vodka(house infusions are excellent) and one person had the beef stroganoff. Also the asparagus side, which was very good

It’s hard to find a better combination of great food and atmosphere. Come as you are or dress up for a special occasion. Great homemade food, and fantastic deals on happy hour and small plates.
