Great service. They were cheerfully able to accommodate our party of nine. This Russian restaurant has been a fixture for years – not sure why I haven’t tried it before. Seven of us ordered the legendary wild rice cabbage rolls – they were seasoned perfectly and came in a delicious tomato- based broth. The two who ventured away from the... More

Arrived at noon & place was buzzing with private parties. We were sat at a great table in front of window. We had vegetarian dumplings, lemon eggs Benedict , a spicy tomato egg dish & wonderful vodka inspired drinks. Service was prompt, friendly, & professional. Hubby received a complex tart chocolate ganache torte for his birthday. It was a perfect... More

We had the best meal in a long long while, exquisite! Vereniki platter with bistro filet done to perfection. Delicious martinis. Very lovely and helpful staff.

Went for the 1st time with my Russian and Ukrainian friends! It smelled great from the moment I walked in. I tried a lot of different dishes, from the cows tongue to the dumplings- it was all great! I especially liked the borscht! THe service was outstanding. I can't wait to go back!

The food and atmosphere are good - they have outdoor dining and great vodka flights. Want something new, I would recommend!

I've always wanted to try this place- it's been recommended to me before but being Minneapolis based it always slips my mind. Had tickets to Ordway and decided to dine there. It was early 5.30 - service was great, very attentive. Table by the window so surrounded by the great architecture of that neighborhood. Enjoyed the vodka drinks. We went... More

Outstanding ambiance! A unique cultural experience. We went as a little group to enjoy their happy hour (ends at 5 no exceptions!) and drink some Vodka. We left after some delicious food and walked around the beautiful neighborhood! A must see spot in St. Paul.

Pretty empty at 10 am, seated promptly by the window. Lovely server, Colleen, added to the delicious food -- dumplings, some sort of pot roast hash, delicious potatoes, and really good horseradish vodka Bloody Mary and Bloody Mary bar. Cubans sandwich also very tasty!

We met a family member here for dinner. I hadn't been here for years and was really looking forward to fantastic and authentic Russian meal. In the time from my last visit they have done a total remodel and the place looks great! The food was as perfect and on point as I remember. This is the only place I... More
