Have been eating at this Polish gem for several years. The ambiance is white table cloth but I have picked up food or eaten an early dinner in jeans. The food is excellent, especially the hot borscht soup which is only offered seasonally but my favorite of all on the menu, usually available in colder months. Schnitzel is very good,... More

I've lived in Santa Monica for many years and have visited this restaurant a couple of times for special events but had never dined here per say. It's only a couple blocks away from us, so one night we, on a whim, decided to check it out. We weren't particularly dressed for a night out for dinner nor did we... More

This is a restaurant that my wife and I like to go to with friends so we can sit and have a pleasant chat without a lot of background noise. The restaurant is in an old house, so is divided into a number of small rooms, each with just a few tables, so you can converse in a normal tone... More

This is by far the best Polish food I have ever had. You could tell that everything was made fresh in the kitchen. The perogies are a must have when you go there. I would recommend the fried potato and cheese perogies, as they were very light, crisp and delicious. The dinner also had amazing flavors and was a very... More

The food is very tasty! Prices are on the high side but the food is very good. The service is very nice and the dining room is well dressed. Have some pierogi and potato pancakes! Or you can have some white borst.

For some great Polish food I suggest Warszawa. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. I was there with some friends and we had a wonderful evening, we thought the food was really great.

I lived lived in Santa Monica for thirty years and this is the place to go for great ambiance and good food. I always order the trout and combination salad. Very light and healthy. Of course there is much more of the traditional Polish fare.

I've been to this restaurant many times - it's now my go-to Polish restaurant in L.A., and a must-visit whenever I'm in town. I'm pretty sure I've run the entire gamut on the menu and was nothing but pleased with every single item. It's comfortable but still very quaint and cozy, the staff have always been great over the years,... More

This was my first time at Warsawa and I went with my Polish American friends for Easter dinner. We had made reservations (recommended) and had an excellent server named Carolina. I went with what my friends and Carolina recommended for appetizers (wonderful pierogi being one of them),and we thoroughly enjoyed our duck dinner. The only other kind of duck I've... More

I love the fact it's in an old house decorated with vintage Polish Circus posters... it's like a country inn and smack in the middle of Santa Monica! I love the pierogies... they have a combo plate worth trying. I also order the stuffed pork loin... with apricots or cherries. The salad "platter" is great to share since you get... More
