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

Coming from Buffalo, New York where you trip all over Polish food on every corner due to the large Polish history of Buffalo, I was somewhat skeptical of Polish food out in the Los Angeles area. My girlfriend and I were at the beach for the sunset and when we went to look for food, the sushi places right by... More

Can't believe I found excellent Polish food in L.A., but Warszawa was fantastic. Interesting little building, looks like it used to be a house long ago. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. There were 5 of us so we tried 3 types of pierogi: potato, beef, chicken and they were all great. The soup special was a white borscht... More

I ordered the crispy duck with apples --- one of their self proclaimed specials. This bird was tough, fatty and inedible. When I told the waitress, she did not offer to take it back to the kitchen or substitute a different entree.. The staff was inept and indifferent. The place was busy. I guess they offer coupons, discounts and other... More

We visited Poland once while living in Germany. We decided to try this restaurant after hitting up the Santa Monica Pier. The waitress was kind, cheery and service was really good. The food, was fantastic! My husband had a pierogi plate, the potato one is yummiest, I had the stroganoff which was fabulous and my children has the schnitzel. Also,... More
