    It was spectacular! We started with the cold Ruskie Zakuski experience. Every bite was a revelation. The horseradish vodka was ice cold and delicious. The dumplings were great, and the stuffed cabbage entree and the rabbit entree were superb. Service was great. A new favorite restaurant for us!

    This was my first time in the new space and we loved it! The dining room while still lively has a much improved noise levels - we could easily hear each other around the table which wasn’t always the case in the original local. Food was - as always phenomenal, old favorites, so new to us treats fantastic! The service was unparalleled. From being greeted at the door to helping us put together our order - everyone was smiles and helpful and highly skilled. Another wonderful evening at Kachka!

    Come here every time I am in Portland! I dream about the sour cherry vareniki until I can have them again. Everything is delicious, but the dumplings, in particular, are superlative. As are the vodka infusions. Something for everyone!

    Meet our high expectations. Originally was slightly disappointed that we couldn't get a later reservation (due to popularity of this place!), but it set us up to enjoy the great happy hour menu. Drinks and food were both amazing. Wait staff was all lovely. Really enjoyed the design and decor or the space.

    We were celebrating my wife’s birthday at Kachka and this was also our first experience of trying authentic Russian cuisine. The staff was very friendly and helpful to explain and recommend dishes to our inquiries. Overall, the food tasted great and was very different from what we usually had. We had a great time there.

    My 10 year old daughter & I flew out to Portland on a Mother/Daughter vacation. It was our first time in Portland. We are Foodies. This unique experience was off the charts. The unique beautifully executed menu blew our socks off. It was a busy Sunday & Chef Kitchen’s came out to take a photo with my daughter Luna. Thank you for taking Us out our comfort zone. Favorite dish Beet cured salmon!

    Everything from the service to the food was excellent. Check out their happy hour for delicious cocktails and paired down menu. The experience is just as much a part of it as the food. Staff carefully walk you through different menu options and make recommendations if asked. Just go, you won’t regret it!

    I've been looking forward to going to Kachka for years--and am so glad I did. Our knowledgeable and friendly waiter gave us great advice on food and drink choices (horseradish-infused vodka is a new favorite). If you haven't tried Kachka--TRY it, you won't be disappointed. I'll be back next time I'm in Portland--you can bank on that.

    Katchka is fun - somehow more fun than i anticipate and maybe more than it deserves. maybe it's the noise level (energetic is an understatement), maybe it is the concept (although it pales besides any number of places in Brighton Beach) but we still go back. I wish there were more semi-vegetarian options, within the overall taste/style of Russia and the FSU - but i know it won't happen. Somehow, we felt rushed, even though we were there for 2 hours and fifteen minutes - maybe more time before ordering, and less after desert?

    KachkaResponded on October 26, 2022Hi there, thank you for your feedback. It's disappointing to hear that the pacing was off with your meal. We ideally provide the right amount of time with the menu and a server who is available to make you feel comfortable and answer all the questions to ensure a great meal. As for the vegetarian offerings, we try to make sure there is always something to offer all dietary types, but depending on the season it ebbs and flows. Again thank you for your review. We can't improve without your help.

    The food was bland and the wine list was limited and uninspiring

    KachkaResponded on October 26, 2022Hi there. I would love to hear more about what you ordered so as to assess what may have been wrong with your dishes. Our food should not be bland, we wouldn't have a restaurant if that was the case so, I believe something must have been poorly executed. As for our wine list, we focus on wines from eastern Europe with an emphasis on traditional varietals of the region. It's true we don't have any French or more familiar varietals, but I'm sure we could have found something you would have liked.

    Amazing dinner & experience! 4 of us shared everything. The dumplings & lamb tartar were sublime. I could eat the house bread every day of my life & die happy. Cabbage rolls & rabbit were amazing as well. We were a bit underwhelmed with the ribs as they were tough. The cocktails & infused vodkas are delicious & fun to try! Definitely going to return.

    Always a fun place to take put-of-town guests. We sampled alot of the menu and enjoyed everything. I will say that my entree (a plate of veg dumplings with sheeps cheese and vegetables) seemed a bit overpriced at $26. But I still enjoyed it.
