Russian
Katia's serves classical Russian cuisine with a light California touch. We use fresh local ingredients and allow them to shine in popular dishes such as Beef Stroganoff, Chicken Pozharski, Shashlik and Golubtsi. Our Blini with herring, caviar or smoked salmon, Pel'meni and Potato Vareniki will satisfy any 'flour' food lover! Start your meal with 'zakuski' (little bites) of appetizers like Olivier or Vinaigrette salads, eggplant caviar and our house made dill pickles and marinated mushrooms. Our beef-based Beet Borsch or tart Green Borsch, and the Vegetarian Mushroom Barley soup will warm you on a cold day and, served cold, will cool you on a hot day. Finish your meal with a glass of our brewed tea in a silver podstakannik with a piece of Napoleon (some say the best dessert in the City), the meringue torte, blinchiki or cherry or cheese vareniki. We serve California wines, award winning Georgian wines and a selection of Baltika beers from St. Petersburg that complement our menu.

Entertainment
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.
