First time visiting this restaurant after being recommended by several friends. They have a full and varied menu. I'll definitely come back to try other items on their menu. Their Cod entree was cooked to perfection and their filet minion was incredible. We had their sampler plate for an appetizer and enjoyed their pierogi, potato pancake and the very tasty... More

If you savor Polish cuisine, this restaurant is a find. Honest and simple yet exquisitely delicious, the food here is plentiful and attractively served. The pierogis are a reminder of growing up when this was typical meatless Friday fare. The pork cutlet stuffed with a creamy mushroom sauce was extraordinary as was the herring appetizer. There is a great selection... More

We went to Royal Warsaw for dinner tonight and we all ordered different meals. The stuffed cabbage, kielbasa and pierogi were delicious. We ordered cheese crepes for dessert, and while out of this world they were pricey (2 crepes for $11.99). Our waiter was personable and very attentive making this delicious dinner very enjoyable.

The food is excellent, authentically Polish. The pierogi are wonderful. The soups are great. Schabovy Moscow Style is to die for.

We visited Royal Warsaw on a Sunday afternoon. Our waitress was very attentive and personable. Everyone in the family ordered something different and no one was disappointed. The portions were large and the prices average. I especially enjoyed the multicultural blending of the jalapeno pierogi. Delicious!

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
