“A Disappointing Polish Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Our dinner at this restaurant on a rainy Saturday evening was merely okay. The tables were close but we were still able to hold a nice conversation. The staff was very attentive and helpful. The portions were generous.

My favorite was the cheese pierogi on the Polish Patter, which also included two types of kielbasa, a large cabbage roll (which was not particularly well spiced), tasty sweet-sour sauerkraut and choice of potato. The latter included the option of the totally forgettable "lazyman's pierogi" - spiral pasta topped with a mushroom-soup-type sauce. The bread was a disappointing store-bought sliced bread.

Another in our party had the Italian Wedding soup and found it satisfying. Ditto for the Wiener Schnitzel. We were too full to consider dessert.

I went into this restaurant with memories of my Polish mother's cooking. Maybe with those memories it was inevitable that I would be disappointed.

“The Heart of Cheektowaga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

An authentic Polish menu at reasonable prices. The waitresses are helpful in understanding the Polish dishes. The portions are more than filling. The quality of the food was superb! Anytime we have guests from out of town we have to go to the Polish Villa. The only difficulty is that so many others know that too! Seating is tight. But they do a great job with the limited space. Waitresses are super in recommendation and on knowing substitutions for the things kids don't like. Should be #1 choice in Cheektowaga, even over Salvatore's Italian gardens (unless you want the overpriced Steak)

“Almost as good as home cooking..........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

The Polish Villa has been around a long time. The Polish food is authentic. It is tasteful and nearly as good as grandma used to make.

It is served in a fine cultural setting with Polish music playing discreetly in the background. The ethnic Poles in Cheektowaga and nearby townships love the food. Service is very good and parking is easy.

I recommend the Polish Villa if you would like to eat good Polish food....nearly as good as home cooked.
