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

I made it to Moscow on the Hill just before the dinner menu would start, so I went ahead with a very late (4:30pm) solo luncheon during a recent business trip to the city. I've eaten at Russian restaurants in Austin, TX (!) and Chicago,...More

Visited here on a Sunday at noon and it was not busy at all. We took our seat out on the patio. The patio is a nice area with lots of seating and could use a little cleaning up but I still liked being outside....More

I have been to Moscow on the Hill for drinks several times and have had a different vodka cocktail every time. Never once was I disappointed! The couch/lounge area is a great place to hang in the winter but nothing beats the patio under the...More

Four of us dined at 6 pm on a Saturday night. It was a lovely evening and we sat outside. We tried the cabbage rolls, dumplings and pork loin dishes. Each was very good. We had never eaten at a Russian restaurant before, but we...More

Lives up to all the hype. The dumplings are a “must“. Patio seating was delightful. Server was efficient, but not exactly friendly (a millennial). Other employees, however, were great. Perhaps if we would’ve had another server, it would’ve been perfect.
