Moscow on the Hill is advertised as "a Russian restaurant and vodka lounge." It is tucked away in the Cathedral Hill neighborhood of St. Paul at 371 Selby Avenue. It was established in 1994 and the chef is Jeff Theissen. Needless to say the fare...More

The food is always excellent and so is the atmosphere. Hard to pick my favorites, but some of them are the Siberian Pelmeni, Borscht and you really need to try the homemade cherry vodka! Yum! Marina, the owner, is a sweetheart too!

This is a parody on Russian food. The restaurant is now owned by the son of the original owners, who totally ruined the food. Nothing there reminds of good Russian cuisine besides the names on the menu. Stay away.

We come here for the various dumplings, as well as the great patio—both of which are outstanding. The other food is quite frankly not so great. Old school, but not in a good way. And the interior needs some updating.

The last Russian restaurant we'd been in was in Medford, Oregon some years ago. So on reading about Moscow on the Hill in Saint Paul, we just had to check it out. It turned out to be a very nice dining experience. Parking was quite...More
