Definitely worth a visit! Food tastes homemade, and there's live music (we went on a Saturday). Can get crowded, so make a reservation!

The food was outstanding and authentic, truly representative of some of the best of the old country. The restaurant is very clean, the atmosphere totally enjoyable, and the staff excellent.

My husband and I went to RW to celebrate my b-day. This time the service was much better. Our server was Katarzyna. In addition to our regular dishes that we always order I wanted beef tartar.

Went here with my wife for her birthday. The food in this restaurant is great. It tastes like home cooking. Service is very prompt and courteous. Love the décor, music, and bar scene. Highly recommended.
