The Old Warsaw Ratings and Reviews
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. :-)
We had a 5 o'clock reservation. When we arrived there was no valet the doors were not open on the restaurant. When we got inside the restaurant it was 15 minutes before they brought us even a menu We were the only patrons in the restaurant at that time They were still setting up the restaurant. The food was good and the service was fine after it finally came. It took as long to get the check after they cleared the plates as it did to get served.
Really attentive, friendly service and overall good quality food. The steak was fantastic, but my lobster was a little tough. We ordered caviar and it was a little disappointing - the presentation was just everything spread out on a plate, and the blini tasted a little sour. But the restaurant itself is very romantic and classy. I would go back for drinks and a special occasion dinner (and order the steak!)
Lovely place with a great pianist. Food was wonderful and very reasonable. Most people there were older, but we loved that about it. Bananas Foster flamed table side, wish some "new" places would take a lesson from these guys. Dining at it's best where you could converse over a long dinner with a great bottle of wine and have background music that made you happy to enjoy it.
We had reservations for 7 and arrived 20 minutes early so they sat us in the bar area. This area was warm and smelled very bad. When we were sat down we had to wait another 15 minutes before we were acknowledged again. It is a 3 course setup which I like. The crab cakes were not very good. I had salmon for the entree which was tough and dry as was the lobster on top. The best part of my meal was the brussel sprouts. The waiter never asked how each course was either. Was very excited to try this place but sad to say I will not return
It had been many years since my last visit to The Old Warsaw. In fact, it was my first fine dining experience in Dallas when I moved here in the 70s. I admit that reading some of the recent reviews which were not so glowing gave me some cause for concern. I must say that my experience after so many years did not disappoint. The ambience was not rococo like the former location, but it retained an element of elegance and formality reminiscent of the former location. The food was satisfying and prepared exactly as ordered. Our server was competent but not engaging or warm. One thing missing was the valet who parked cars for so many years at the former location. I wonder what happened to him?
I no longer live in Dallas, but when I come here to visit our family, I will once again include The Old Warsaw as a Dallas culinary treasure and encourage anyone looking for a classic fine dining experience to give it a try. I'm betting you won't be disappointed.
We had a party of six adults. All food was prepared as ordered except one. Steak was first very over cooked. They agreed and prepared a second steak. The second steak contained cold under cooked spots. It was not eatable. They again agreed and removed that dinner from the bill.
They were very accommodating and attempted to correct the issue. However after 2 tries and all others were finished with dinner, we had one party that never got to eat.
We had 2 of us experienced nats flying into the food on the plates. I could not finish my steak after I noticed a nat land on my plate then jump in my food.
I will not go back and cannot recommend.
Very nice experience and the food was wonderful. My wife had lobster bisque, filet mignon and lobster. I had creamed spinach, garlic whipped potatoes, Brussels sprouts and home fries. They made the cherries jubilee and served it over ice cream for my wife and over vegan friendly coconut ice cream for me. I enjoyed my meal as a lacto-vegetarian every bit as much as my wife did. Live piano music was a very elegant touch.
Very much enjoyed the experience at Old Warsaw. Food was very good, service was as well.
My only disappointment was that they had a Prix Fixe menu for Valentine's Day, which wasn't indicated when I made the reservation, but would recommend the venue overall.
When you spend that kind of money, you would think the staff would be super responsive and very polite...........they are very firm and matter of fact and let me turn in your order........I had to pick from one of two menus only for Valentine's Day, so I didn't want anything on my menu I wanted food from so the guy was like what do you want? Real rudely.........and they just were very courteous.............
The food and service were just ok. I attended a wedding here years ago on the courtyard, which was beautiful. My fiancé and I went for Valentine's Day, and we won't go back. The food wasn't worth the money, the plates looked sloppy, the Brussels sprouts were just steamed. I can make better food at home, for much cheaper. We did very much enjoy the pianist. Young Uptown kids were having a party outside, and the noise flowed into the dining room, causing us to have to yell over the noise to talk to each other. The table next to us was too close, not allowing any private conversation. Also their order was messed up so many times it was actually funny. All in all, not worth the money, and we won't go back.
So disappointing. The Old Warsaw used to be known for it's impeccable service and attention to detail. My boyfriend and I came here for an early Valentine's dinner. Waited in the front for a hostess who never appeared. A waiter finally came and seated us in the very back dining room - along with a huge party of 15. The only other party in that room. When we didn't order a cocktail right away the waiter disappeared for quite a while then came back to take drink AND food order. My filet was an odd texture, my bf's steak was undercooked. Dessert - apple pie was less that Mrs. Smith quality and German Choc cake was not worth finishing. We were kept waiting over 10 minutes after the meal to get the check. With so many good restaurants in Dallas, I'd hoped the old ones might keep up, but not this one.
My family has enjoyed the Old Warsaw for years for special occasions. This time we went for my parent's anniversary and my mom's birthday. There didn't seem to be as many waiters and the service was not what it was in the past. The food was delicious and everyone's was correct but it just seemed less than what it was in the past. It was very quiet in the room we were in which was appreciated -- we could enjoy each other's company which we did for about 3 hours.
