Excellent authentic pirogi, kielbasa, and potatoe pancakes. There is not one bad thing on the menu. They also have an excellent bar with top shelf liquors, especially vodkas.

Went for a family birthday party. Place is very nice and clean. Portions are generous. Food was average as well as the service. Very very busy. Prices are fair, too. Just wasn't tickled by several of our food choices. Pierogies were good

To the extent that I am familiar with authentic Polish food and atmosphere, this place seems to do it, and do it extremely well. For those wanting traditional American dishes, they do a great job at that as well. Having visited at times when a number of large parties were taking place they manage to provide superb service, preparation, and... More

Good food, resonable prices. Authenic polish cuisine. Excellent sevice. Staff more than willing to help guide in choosing which dishes you would enjoy

We visit Royal Warsaw quite often on the weekends for delicious comfort foods like potato pancakes, pierogis, bigos (hunter stew), and more. My favorite entree is Przekladaniec Zakopianski (a pan-fried pork cutlet served with potato pancakes, a mushroom sauce, and a side of veggies). The specials are always good (try the BBQ pork ribs). I never have enough room for... More

If it's traditional, Polish fare you seek, look no further. Pirogi, stuffed cabbage, kielbasa; it's all here and it's absolutely delicious. This is, just about, the ONLY place to get grandma's cooking in a restaurant setting.

For classic Polish cuisine at a reasonable price, the Royal Warsaw is THE PLACE to be! Pierogi, kielbasa, pork, stuffed cabbage, and a whole lot more are available. the plates are chock full of food, and the environment is superb! Remember this is Eastern European food so don't look for the exotic here! You won't find sushi or exotically spiced... More

You won't be disappointed if you go to Royal Warsaw. Try things from the appetizer menu to get an idea of which dishes you like. All are prepared in an authentic way and all employees are Polish. From the kielbasa to the pierogies you can't go wrong.

Restaurant is nice and having a good atmosphere. Food is tasting as it should and portions are hudge. We tried pierogi which were very good and in my private 'pierogi lover rank' one of top places. We also had some pork, which was nicely done. Crew is very kind and professional. Nice taste of Poland in the US.

I've been to Royal Warsaw five times and find it to be consistently fantastic. The food is beyond delicious, the wait staff friendly and very helpful, the atmosphere wonderful. Always have had a great time and will continue to go back with family and friends. In fact, cannot wait to once again experience the pierogi's, stuffed cabbage and Hunter's stew.... More
