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...More

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

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!
