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. It was presented very lovely, however, the meat was at room temperature and the portion was too big, as with the rest of portions... More

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.

Today was my 2nd ever visit to Royal Warsaw & it made me wonder why I had not returned sooner. This is obviously a Polish restaurant & even though I've only been there for lunch it was very enjoyable. The restaurant is nicely decorated & the waitresses are quite knowledgeable, friendly & courteous. Add to that good food at very... More

Took our family and Polish Nanny out for dinner (for my wifes) birthday. The food was very good and tasty. My Polish nanny confirmed. Our waitress was excellent. I would return.

My husband and I went for dinner to Royal Warsaw to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. My husband ordered Royal stake and I ordered chicken livers. The Royal stake was the best I ever had in RW so far (my husband and I switched our plates!) having been there on numerous occasions. Service was rather rushed and I was bothered... More

Don't be fulled by the rather unassuming exterior of this restaurant. It's tastefully appointed, has great serving staff and serves excellent Polish dishes. Both my husband and I had the pork cutlets served with mashed potatoes and selection of side dishes. it was very nicely presented and tasted great. The desserts were sinfully good as well. Our server was not... More

Comfort food and more!!! Interesting arrangement of tables to both sides of the entrance and an elevated lounge area with tall tables for overflow crowds or those who wish to watch TV. The layout is very cozy and the booths are attractive and give a sense of privacy. Their menu is expansive...try the Warsaw Sampler platter ($16.95) with stuffed cabbage,... More

Royal Warsaw Restaurant has been around for some time and I recently decided to have lunch here. For what it's worth, I grew up eating Polish food in Passaic with my dad which was never a white linen experience, mostly mom and pop places that made wonderful hearty dishes and always plenty of fresh rye bread. The restaurant is pleasing... More
