Loved the sauerkraut, sausage, and potatoes. The service was fast, and place was clean. Glad to get some good, quality ethnic food close to work. Try the four seasons cake, it is fantastic.

We found out about Old Vilnius Cafe thanks to Groupon. What can I say it was the best European food I ever tried in my life. Restaurant is very small with only 8 or 9 tables, very nicely decorated with huge painting of what I would guess some city in Europe. Portions are huge and food is delicious. I had Lithuanian combo plate and some Svyturys beer. We will be back for more and will bring more friends. Welcome to the neighborhood !

Thanks to Groupon, we were introduced to Old Vilnius Cafe. Small and quaint restaurant attached to a small Lithuanian grocery. Potato pancakes as an appetizer didn't disappoint. The pork tenderloin and chicken dish (don't recall the name) were winners, but the beef stroganoff was not what expected. All in all, it was a pleasant dining experience and we would go back to try other dishes.

We aren't adventurous in trying new foods so it took a Groupon to get us to try Old Vilnius Cafe. We really enjoyed our "visit" to Lithuania including beef stroganoff, pork kebobs and sausage with such tasty sauerkraut. The atmosphere feels like a romantic trip to Europe. We left saying, "Can we come back tomorrow and try something else?" The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The restaurant filled up after 6 p.m.. There is a relatively small dining area so they recommend you call ahead for reservations. Now we understand why. We will be back with friends soon!! The menu is quite extensive with wonderful choices. There are even hamburgers for other non-adventurous diners. The prices were very reasonable and the plates loaded so we brought home leftovers. We say, "Try them soon." I wish they sold the sauerkraut in the deli!!

Lithuanian food like Mama (or Grandma) used to make! Generous portions of delicious Lithuanian food. All the old favorites like cabbage rolls (balandeliai), kugelis, zepplins (cepelinai), dumplings (kaldunai), Lithuanian sausage, etc., and some brought over from present day Lithuania, and even some American fare (burgers, sandwiches) for the less adventurous. All food we've tried there has been delicious, not over-salted, and reasonably priced. Old Vilnius is good old fashioned Lithuanian comfort food, yum :) And they do take-out of their whole menu, too.
