Alex Yaskin, our accordion player, has been with Katia's since we opened. He is a popular Saturday night fixture and adds a great dimension to your dining experience. Alex likes to announce to his audience: 'You will never hear this on an accordion anywhere else!' And, true to his promise, he plays from his repertoire of classic accordion pieces, Russian songs, show tunes, the Beatles and Stones, and some very current popular music. Make a request--or a 'wish' as Alex calls it--and prepare to be surprised! Alex is available for private parties at Katia's and for other private venues as well.

Parking Details:
Balboa Street has parking meters operating from 9am to 6pm, Monday thru Saturday, so day time parking is very easy. In the evening, diners arriving before 6pm can usually snatch a parking place. After 6pm parking gets more difficult.

We have attempted to join forces with our neighbor restaurants to arrange for valet parking but the City has not allowed it. For large private parties valet parking can be provided.
