The Old Warsaw Ratings and Reviews
The best part of the meal was the company I took with me. Waiter lacked any kind of personality. Food lacked any kind of zing, not memorable. Desserts appear to be frozen. My creme brûlée has soured. I had parked my car with the valet and upon retrieving my car there was a spot where they had brushed up against something white and chalky. When I told the valet she immediately said "it was already there". I asked to speak t o manager who wiped the spot with his hand and got the chalk off but the knick was still there. It was my 2016 jaguar that has a mere 4K miles on it. No apology. Just a "there" and and he started to leave. I know enough about valet services to know you park at your own risk but at least fake care and concern. I know I won't return and have already sent the word out to everyone I know. Avoid this place, you'll be glad you'll did.
Horrible experience- not worth the money whatsoever.
The hostess didn't greet us- she just demanded the last name and said we could wait at the bar while they got our table ready- there were plenty of open tables. Didn't seat us until after our reservation time- waited at the bar, which was nasty.
We sat down and they were still placing silverware on the table, they delivered us butter but bread arrived five minutes later.
Waiter didn't say Happy Mother's Day, didn't welcome us at all, just asked if we were ready to order. The menu was limited for daytime but two entree items were exactly the same just switched out the main fish.
Starters- I had the spinach salad which was caked in so much dressing the spinach was wilted. My BF had the crab cake- looked like some previously frozen thin patty.
Thankful we had bread and water.
For the entrees- I had salmon topped crawfish and mushrooms. The sauce was so creamy and rich my stomach hurt after, the crawfish were not fresh you could taste the plastic they were stored in. My mom and sister had the prime filet- which were two mini medallions, super thin as well. Their plates were so hot during the entire meal- my sister burnt her wrist multiple times. My BF had the eggs Benedict- which thankfully tasted fine but not worth $49.
The waiter never came back to check on us or ask how our meal was.
Dessert- awful. Dry carrot cake and their "strawberry grand marnier cake" it's simply strawberry shortcake without the strawberries and less than a teaspoon of Grand marnier, extremely dry as well.
No one brought us our check either- I had to walk to the register 20 minutes after they had taken our plates away.
First time & last. My older parents, other family & I had an overall horrible experience on Mother's Day from the time we walked in thru to the end. The doors were open in the hot sunny heat of the afternoon and it was a total sauna, especially in the bathrooms, which also were in need of an overhaul. Broken slats in stall for all the world to peek in, overall bad shape. No friendly greeting when we walked in. It was more like we were bothering everyone by being there and they had better things to do. Online menu changed, no chicken, and no Mom's Day flower offering as mentioned. A bit tacky to offer items and then not deliver. Every little request for the simplest things were denied. Food was just ok. Noone in the group we were with enjoyed the experience at all. It was hot, quiet, depressing. Service was bad. Add air-conditioning and music and this restaurant still has a long way to go. So disappointed in every way.
Ambiance Excellent, great service from start with Valet to hostess. Service was not rushed, no attempt to 'turn the table'. Good offerings from the Prix Fixe menu. Food was delicious.
Only problem was when pianist sat down to play part way through the meal. Pretty much made conversation impossible. If you want to talk with your date, ask to sit away from the piano, preferably in another section.
Unfortunately, the experience my mom and I had celebrating her birthday at the Old Warsaw was forgettable and a disappointment compared to the last time we dined there years ago before it was relocated.
The appetizer we chose was the lobster tail with crabmeat. The presentation was completely unexpected since there was no mention of it coming mixed together and doused in a cream sauce. We expected an actual lobster tail with crabmeat on top and perhaps drawn butter? The flavor was mostly bland as well. For the main course we ordered the filet mignon and a baked potato. The filet itself and the accompanying sauce were delicious and the only saving grace of the meal. The potato tasted strange and overcooked. Both the carrot cake and chocolate mousse cake tasted like something you could buy at Kroger.
We ran into a lady on the way out who mentioned that she was engaged there years ago and how she was very disappointed by the quality and service she received that evening in comparison.
Overall, this place is not worth the money to be disappointed. We won't be returning.
Food was excellent and the wait staff was mostly attentive, but they ignored the fact that we had asked at the beginning of dinner to speed things a little as we wanted to make it to the Dallas Symphony on time. We started dinner at 5:30 with the symphony at 7:30. Alas we were late, and I attribute that to the staff being a little slow in moving through the courses and really slow about getting us the check. Would have been a lovely dinner experience if we could have leisurely let dinner happen, but this is not the place to go to before theatre or concert performances.
Old Warsaw has been on our 'restaurant bucket list' for quite some time. When it was my husband's birthday, I was honestly shocked that they were open on a Monday, but at the same time happy. When we walked in, the place was empty, which was a little scary. However, that did not matter, as we were really so impressed with our service, cocktails were wonderful, and the food was absolutely delicious! We will be back!
We went to this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary with some friends. The noise level was high, there was a pianist playing in the Main Dining Room that was too small and contributed to the noise level. It took 45 to 50 minutes for us to be served and out waiter had poor waiting skills. This was our second visit to the Old Warsaw but our first visit to this location. WE WILL NOT BE RETURNING!
Spending Easter at the Old Warsaw was an excellent idea! The three-tiered menu was most impressive along with the values for each! The never-ending Mimosas were also an added treat! The location which is across from the Crescent is an excellent area for dining and entertainment! Good and attentive service!
We always enjoy our experience at The Old Warsaw. We had made reservations a few weeks in advance for our Easter dinner. The only complaint was my sister ordered her steak medium-rare and it came out even too rare for her. I really don't know why she didn't send it back, but everything else was what we are accustomed to. Thank you for a nice evening!
We enjoyed our first visit to Old Warsaw. It has a sort of old school elegant ambience and charm. We had the lobster for two special and we were very satisfied with the quality of the food and portion size. For the reasonable price I would say the value was quite good. Service is formal and attentive without being intrusive. We plan on. I visiting again for Easter Sunday brunch.
Had not been here I several years and thought it would be nice for anniversary dinner. Read reviews before going and noticed they were pretty much either one or five star. The one stars are correct. Food was not bad but certainly nothing exciting. The filet and lobster tail had maybe an ounce of lobster. The six dollar side of asparagus was very small and had no seasoning whatever. The au-grautin potatoes were overwhelmed with nutmeg. The Caesar salad is not made at the table as advertised and very closely resembled the kit bag Caesar from the grocery store. Service was inattentive at best. We will not be returning and it is a shame that this very attractve venue is being wasted on a much less than excellent restaurant.
We like this place for what it DOES NOT have: NO TV screens, no LOUD music, no noise.
It's somewhat dark inside, sedate. The younger generation will not find it stimulating, which is why we like it. Food is good, good value. Service is attentive. Good piano player.
Worst service I've ever had at a restaurant. There is no explanation possible as to why the servers still work at this place. The entire staff was borderline rude, surly, no communication skills whatsoever etc etc. They must be blackmailing the owner(s) of this restaurant into a job because otherwise it doesn't make any sense. And the noise coming from the kitchen, unbearable. For about 15-20 minutes they were clanking on silverware in the kitchen to the point that they were louder than the piano player. The food was just OK; if you're going to the $50 Menu, at least you're getting a decent value for your OK food. Anything else is simply not worth it. I would not recommend this place to anyone; there are just too many great options within easy walking distance to spend money at this place.
My husband and I went to celebrate meeting 48 years ago. It was our first time going to Old Warsaw. But it won't be the last. The food, the service, the atmosphere and the pianist were absolutely wonderful. All the folks who work at Old Warsaw are friendly and courteous. Thank ya'll again for an unforgettable evening. :-)
