Food and service are great. Really great experience. Highly recommend it.
Enjoyed every thing we ordered...and we ordered a lot. Can't go wrong off of the menu. Drink menu is limited but adequate.
Wonderful comfort food! Perfect for a cold evening.
Wonderful experience. Service was outstanding, food was delicious! So excited to have a wonderful Russian restaurant so close to home!
Excellent, Authentic Russian with Ukranian and Georgian influences. Simply prepared and delicious. Chicken Tapaka is excellent entree. For appetizers Chicken Holodez and Salad Olivie are exceptional. Save the room for Cherry Dumplings for dessert.
We began our meal with the tongue appetizer. It was 6 slices of tongue with a tiny dollop of garlic sauce atop each. We also tried the vinaigrette salad. It’s a wonderful medley of tiny cubes of beets, potatoes, onions, carrots, dill pickles, and the tiniest peas. Different and delicious. We then shared the beef stroganoff. It was a simple presentation and would have been much better if the beef were not so salty. Also, it would be more palatable and easier to eat if the noodles were long and not short.
We finished with their version of Napoleon. Our Cosmos and the coffee are very good.
Traditional Russian/Ukrainian food, with a few Georgian dishes. The homemade pierogi and pilmeni were excellent, as was the borscht.
Good food...albeit a bit pricey.
New Eastern European restaurant in Highland Park. Don't miss it. Food is authentic and great. Admittedly, pickled herring isn't for everyone (I'm not sure why), but Dacha has a full appetizer and main course menu, and it's definitely worth trying some dishes you've never tried before. The lamb kebabs and Siberian dumplings were both superb. Additionally, they allow BYO, which is a nice plus. We will DEFINITELY go back.
Cafe Dacha was a unique experience. My wife and I enjoy eating out but we had never been to a Ukrainian/Russian restaurant. Every dish was new to us. We had pickled herring, borscht which was hot and different and beef stroganoff. It felt like we eating in someone’s kitchen. The waiter, Dan, chose every dish which we thoroughly enjoyed. Be warned, Dan has enlisted in the Army to defend us and will be gone in September. Finally, we had Ukrainian beer that was delicious. The Cafe has been open only for three months. It deserves a long stay in Highland Park.
Will definitely go again. Great food, great service
Delicious comfort food.
We met some friends on a rainy night and it wasn't very busy, so we were able to enjoy our friends company in a relaxed unhurried atmosphere. The food tasted delicious...I ordered the stuffed cabbage rolls and they were every bit as good as my mother's. The other entrees were beef stroganoff and goulash and everyone enjoyed theirs as well. Our desserts tasted homemade and very generous. We plan to return soon.
Food was really salty. Every dish was salty. I hate to say it but they don't know what they're doing. They don't have their drinks listed with me to seem like they only have one beer. I don't think the server was that on purpose but just lack of training he dropped off the food and never came back and checked I want to tell him that the food was salty didn't get a chance. The beef stroganoff was borderline a joke. They serve you pasta which is just like blanched from the pot on to the plate and comes out really dry and then they garnish it with the beef that's really the route you wanna take garnish with parsley but the pasta had no sauce. I wonder if the chef Tates the food there? I would not go back or recommend it based on the food close the followed by the service
We loved the salads and dessert crepes but the entrees did disappoint. The lamb kebab while flavorful was well done as was the salmon fillet. That being said the perogie snd ghoulash were good. I will return to try other entrees.
The food was good, basic Eastern European food. We enjoyed it. We could not get over the extremely slow service, however. Slow even by European standards.
Food wasn't great. Both gulash and shishceba were too dry
Had an amazing time with friends and kids. Food was amazing and kids enjoyed it as well. We might have been a little too loud, sorry for that. A great place to come visit! Can’t wait for the outdoor patio to open!
Food was fresh and well presented. Service was friendly and courteous.
Will be happy to come back!
My husband and I decided to try Dacha for his birthday dinner. They are newly opened and we believe in supporting local restaurants. We do not eat Eastern European food very often so this was a new experience for us. Our preconception of “heavy food” was blown away tonight. The flavors from the borscht soup, to the stuffed cabbage and sausage were sublime. The owners are father (chef) and son who are from Ukraine but now live here and between them, have extensive restaurant experience. The restaurant decor is simple but lovely and the service was great. We will return.
A great new addition to HP food choices. If you had ever wondered about Russian / Ukrainian food - this is a good place to learn about it.
Delicious food, friendly service. Will definitely be back.
