Enter this fancy Russian delicatessen and you will be instantly transported to downtown Moscow. Boasting 20 varieties of caviar, a medley of smoked fish, good old-fashioned gefilte fish and a smattering of homemade cold salads, this is really a place not to be missed. Everything is fresh and everything is good, plain and simple. Cold borscht in Red Square never tasted this good! Attentive and pleasant service make this gourmet shop a wonderful journey without the hassles of dealing with your passport.

Terrible service. The waitress was on saturday night was very rude. She refused to seat my friends and I. She did not answer any questions and was very unprofessional. Restaurant looks very tacky from the inside. I do not recommend it. Not worth the drive.

Citysearch Editorial Review – Since the early 1990s, this West Hollywood restaurant has been drawing Russian ex-pats to their West Hollywood location for a taste of home. A young, hip crowd comes for dishes like Traktir's authentic kharcho (lamb soup), which exudes a complex combination of spices and herbs (yet is hearty enough to eat like a meal). Other winning dishes include the Armenian-style lula kebab or any of the large fish dishes (which come as a whole fish with a generous side order of potatoes). The patio here takes up the entire front portion of the restaurant looking over Santa Monica Blvd. and is always busy with chain-smoking ex-pats from Moscow. A solid choice for anyone looking to try Russian food in an atmosphere that is far from intimidating.

Fantastic food – Amazing food here--very authentic. You will not and cannot go wrong at Traktir. Great service, but sometime slow. But who cares? They are very friendly here, a rarity at Russian restaurants in LA. Also, they make their own vodka here. No surprise, they are crowded often on weekends.

Get Take Out – Excellent food. The borscht, dumplings, pork chops and stroganoff --right down to the pickles--were all excellent. The flavored vodkad all tasted "stale", if that's possible, with the exception of the hot pepper vodka, which was really great once you got past the fire. The service was horribly slow, but at least friendly and the restaurant itself was chilly and too brightly lit. The restroom consists of a single employee restroom within the kitchen. I recommend not drinking a lot. Better yet, forego the uncomfortable bathroom situation and the terrible service, just get your food to go...

Da! This is one of my favorite spots to get Russian food. Friendly and nice waiters there. If you go on a Sunday make sure you make a reservation because the place will be packed. Also it's a plus if you or someone that you go with knows Russian.

Went with a Russian: He loved it – I went on Wednesday night to Traktir. The waiter was very nice. We drank the compote, which was very refreshing. We ordered the trio of those dumplings, then the chicken in crepes with mushroom cream sauce. Both plates were very tasty (I think they both had the same sauce). I guess Russian food is on the heavier side but it was a fun experience. Traktir is one of those ethnic experiences where the many of the diners are from the country. Most people there seemed Russian. That's a good sign, right?

It gives us a taste of babushka's homecooked meals. haha. =) Highly recommend to come and try it out for yourself. Take my word, it will not be time wasted and you may in fact end up coming more than once.
