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...

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?

great service. delicious food.

I can always go here with my friends and family, whenever. We always enjoy eating here. 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.

Below expectations

On my recent visit to Traktir I found a cheaply decorated eatery with plastic plates and no tableclothes. All entrees had the same side of potatoes and cabbage, a sort of what one could see in a Russian diner 20-30 years ago. It was sad to see those served on all plates around. Dumplings were really good. Harcho was OK, but far from the real deal. The service was quite indifferent. Meal for two cost us about $50. I had 250 g. of Vodka that raised my bill by another $40 (!). Overall impression is that of a rip-off.

Russian cafe with great food and flavored vodka

I just had the best meal ever. Located in west hollywood this charming restaurant delivers great tasting russian food. I started with the borscht it was very good, then the trio vereniki (Russian style dumplings), chicken blintzes very good and tasty, for main dish we ordered chicken tabaka (pressed cornish hen in garlic wine sauce so so delicious. My friend ordered lula kebab and he said it was the best he has ever had. I can't wait to go again, but I was told to make reservation on the weekend, because it is small and fills up fast. Highly recommended restaurant.

best russian food

Each time i've been here it's been a wonderful experience. Great ambiance, friendly staff and delicious authentic Russian/Ukranian dishes that make you come back over and over again to this place. I've eaten here several times and loved the food, the decor and the service was exellent. Love the outdoor patio, it's a great place to enjoy wonderful LA weather and people watch. would highly recommend it for any one who loves good food and great service.

Great Little Place. Great Food. Great People

What a great place. The food is wonderful. Try their shih kebobs. The staff is accommodating and welcoming. I have returned at least 5 times with my partner. On the weekends reservations are highly recommended because the place is small and fills up quickly, so call ahead of time. A very nice place to spend a lunch as well. I recently met the owners and they are so warm and so nice. It is truly a family owned restaurant. Also, don't be surprised to spot your friends there as more people are discovering this little hideaway right in the heart of West Hollywood.
