    Phil Rosenthal wasn’t kidding. This place is amazing. I understand the popularity, even though it increased the noise level and slowed down the service. We will definitely return, especially come winter and snow. We are looking for the true Russian experience, after all.

    Met and exceeded our high expectations. The food was traditional yet inventive, full of flavor, and well proportioned — you won’t leave here hungry! We especially enjoyed the cabbage rolls, dumplings, pate, fish plates…well, we enjoyed it all, really. The infused vodka was excellent, and we had a lot of fun trying the different flavors. The vibe and ambiance were awesome — it’s poppin’ and family friendly all in the same space, making it feel like a party at home. The service is absolutely excellent — you’ll meet several servers who can each explain every detail of a dish and are happy to repeat if you miss something. Moreover, the included service fee means that all of the servers are well-compensated and receive great benefits — a movement we hope to see spread throughout the city and country. We can’t wait to head back to Kachka soon!

    Turn off: allowing a dog into the indoor dining area. That’s just unacceptable and unsanitary, and inconsiderate to any patron(s) who may not like having animals nearby while eating. Noise level was a bit high. And price was too much for the basic comfort food offered.

    KachkaResponded todayHi IleneS, Thanks for your note. I just wanted to clarify that we do not allow dogs or any animal in our restaurant, with the exception of certified service animals which we have to allow in by law. According to our internal logs we did have a a few service animals come in the night that you dined which was particular noted due to the fact that there were multiple in one night which is unique.

    The menu has been modified since we last came (pre-pandemic). It features more "western" styled dishes than the earlier versions. There are still Russian dishes available of course, but that section of the menu has been slimed down a bit. The good news though is that all the dishes (that we tried) were excellent (dumplings, deviled eggs with a Russian twist, tomato salad, flatbread, and a cheese/pasta like dish). We will return in the future.

    The food at Kachka is always amazing. Some of the best in the city, for sure. The service is great and no matter what I get on the menu I'm always happy. The sour cherry vareniki and golubtsi are especially wonderful. Also, the drinks are strong so be warned!

    What a glorious dining experience! From the mixed-bag slushy to the tomato salat, the meat dumplings to the rabbit in a clay pot, the flavors were all so layered and rich; every bite was wonderfully satisfying. The service is top-notch with a cheerful, accommodating, and knowledgeable floor staff.

    We finally made it to Kachka! It did not disappoint. Though we were not impressed so much with the famous dumplings…seemed rather bland, but maybe we needed to try a different kind?? But the rabbit was outstanding and the ice cream dessert was…welll…I’m still lost in space thinking about how amazing it was! Cold, creamy and cheesy goodness with amazing vodka Carmel topping!!

    Common Portland this place is not that great. It’s more of a hype. Be realistic, just because is popular doesn’t mean the food is fantastic. I have better Eastern European food in Sunny Isles and Southern CA.

    We heard aout Kachka from an eposide of Netflix "Somebody Feed Phil" and were hoping we could find a ethnic restaurant in Portalnd. We were very disappointed. As background, I am 1/4 Check and 1/4 Ukranian and grew up exposed to good slavic food; Kachas' food flavor and portions were mediocre at best. Our waiter was condescending and naive; I was tempted to call him out in Ukraninan but it would have been loss on him since he had no clue about what he was serving. After our appetizers plates, we ordered Siberian pelmeni and waited, and waited and waited.... The music was too loud and out of place for a true Ukranian or Russian restaurant atmosphere. The one positive was the vodka martini and vodka flights were good. We complained to the on site manager and she apologized about being understaffed and having a very new crew. The Kachka menu prices are on the high end for Portland and the value is low competively.

    KachkaResponded on July 10, 2022Hi Tom, I am very disappointed to hear about your negative experience. In our training we focus on food & cultural knowledge. For folks who are new to this, it can take some time. Sometimes we are put in a position to have servers who are still learning and I appreciate your understanding and compassion. Thank you for your feedback. We hope you appreciate the round of drinks on us, and gift card we sent home with you. We hope to host you another time to provide a better experience.

    The food was amazing. Service was pretty slow at the beginning & end. We waited 20 minutes from when we sat down to put in our drink order and then waited 40 mins to get our check. (Plates had been cleared & dessert declined.) Cool vibe & I love the decor. Just wish we didn’t sit around waiting for an hour.
