Went there for dinner. Stood at the hostess sign for 10 minutes. Not one person even acknowledged that we were there. The bar tender looked at us and said nothing. The waitress looked right at me and did not approach nor even say she will be right with us. Then a man walked out looked at me and turned around... More

friendly & good. Menu is both Italian & Polish. Portions are large & service is prompt and friendly. Place is very clean and has a cozy feeling to it. Prices are reasonable and parking was no problem.

Whenever we are in this area after visiting the cemetery we stop in here. I grew up eating Polish food so I enjoy having foods I loved and remember so well

Have not been here in years. I read that there are new owners. Place feels like one has stepped back into the last century with easy on the eyes relaxed lighting and fabulous excellent antique airplanes overhead, while enjoying fresh tap bear (very good selection!) and savoring the perfect home made onion soup and followed by their extremely generous polish...

First we were a little confused when we walked in on a Sunday. We thought we walked into a reception, but it was the Sunday brunch, which was set up like a wedding. We left and went in another door and ended up in the bar. Which was connected the restaurant. Was a little bit disappointed in the food. We... More

The staff was very attentive, the food was tasty and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. A Valentines weekend treat for my honey and I with two other couples. DJ onsite and room was beautifully decorated! Will definitely be back.

I stopped by here for lunch on a rainy New York day. It was around 1:30pm and I got seated right away. There was only one other group in the restaurant, but it was a large group of ladies at the bar. I ordered my food right away. The service was a little slow, but I think it was because... More

Over the course of a two-week business trip it was nice to mix it up a bit at Birchwood. The food was very good (esp. the dessert!) but the service took a while. There was only one waitress at the dinner hour. I would go again, but wouldn't rush back.
