Never been to any Polish restaurant before and what a great surprise. We start with the house white wine and the price is right ($6.00 per glass for almost 9 oz). Follow by the meat pierogies as an appetizer and the portion is very large. We order the 3 course menu - included soup or salad, entree and ice cream... More

For years, a friend has been raving about this restaurant. Last Saturday my husband and I went with another couple for Saturday dinner and we haven't stopped raving about it since. This is traditional, hearty and heartfelt food that will thrill your palate and touch your soul. We started with Polish Sampler Plate and right then we knew we were... More

This was my second time to the Royal Warsaw and the food is wonderful and plentiful. The portion sizes are quite large so remember this when you are ordering an appetizer. We had the kielbasa and the pirogues for our appetizer and both were cooked to perfection. For dinner I had a chicken cutlet with a mushroom sauce and a... More

There are many Polish restaurants in the surrounding area of the RW but NONE are the RW. The food speaks for itself. Homemade, fresh and tasty food, nice beer/wine selection, generous portions, with a clean, friendly, and professional and unrushed atmosphere. The prices are very friendly as well! This restaurant never disappoints! I was there this time with a group... More

I visited Royal Warsaw for the first time yesterday and already can't wait to go back. My first impression was how crowded the place was at an off-time (late afternoon) on a warm, sunny spring Saturday. It is an elegant setting - white linen table cloths contrasting with dark wood and a bustling, attentive waitstaff in white aprons. The menu... More
