The Old Warsaw Ratings and Reviews

We had always heard about Old Warsaw, but had never gone. This was our 49th anniversary, and we decided to finally mark it off our bucket list. Soon after arriving we realized that this old popular restaurant is now living off it's former glory. The steak and red snapper were very good. The only think in the excellent category was the bananas foster. It was really the only item good enough to make us return.

Service was attentive and accommodating--just right. It was my husband's birthday, and he was presented with a slice of birthday cake with candle. The food was excellent, and we especially enjoyed the seafood dishes. The chocolate soufflé alone was worth the trip! The atmosphere was cozy and quiet enough for conversation. The Old Warsaw was a good choice for a romantic dinner for a special occasion. Valet parking was courteous and efficient. We recommend it for its food, service, and atmosphere.

The food was very good, top notch! And it is a quite place, one you could have a conversation with your date or table without ambient noise making it difficult to hear. However, the service seemed confused and slow. We waited over 10 minutes for our drinks to arrive and over 20 minutes, after they took the entree up, for our desert to arrive.
So, if you go, you will be very pleased with the food and be patient with the service.

As always, this restaurant continues to wow. We did not realize it had moved till someone told us and my husband looked it up on line and it is still on Maple, but on the other side of the Hotel St. Germain. They moved their wonderful booths. They continue to have the piano player which is quite nice. Miss the violin player though. Always a good meal and excellent service!

Ate here 7 years ago and very good then.
This time,We went on a mon night & only one customer when arrived .Server unaware of restaurant week special 3 course and just uninterested staff all around Spinach salad dressing so tasteless , lobster tough. Dover sole unlike I've had before&seemed like a different fish. Also, lacking much flavor from sauce. Grand marnier soufflé lacking orange flavor...very disappointed that this once spectacular restaurant has slipped so much!

We really enjoyed Old Warsaw. The service was excellent, the food very good, and we enjoyed the live piano music. And the bartender makes an excellent vodka and tonic. We had one of the three course meal selections offered during Restaurant Week, but also looked at the regular menu and saw some selections we will come back to enjoy in the future. Good value as well.

We have dined at the Old Warsaw for years. I have over the years watched the service and now the food continue to decline. What a shame. We had to request bread and butter. they never removed the wine glasses. We were having mixed drinks. The time between the soup, french onion, which was the worst I have ever had, and the appetizer. Time was way to long before the main course was served. How sad, How sad. I have so many found memories of this restaurant . I hope that they get there priorities in order and get the wait staff up to grade. The piano player was fine but the piano was hidden, and much to loud as to where our table was situated.

Service was lacking even though restaurant was not very busy. Ritz crackers were used on a $10 appetizer. The meat left a lot to be desired. The Mac and cheese was barely worth the one bite I took. The chocolate mousse was a cake rather than a mousse, no explanation was given.

We have dined at Old Warsaw many times. We took my parents to celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary. Since it was Restaurant Week, we took advantage of the $99 per couple for 3 courses special. The 3 servers we had (water girl, 2 servers) were delightful, quiet, attentive. However, we were very disappointed in the food. The lobster with crab appetizer was very tough. My dad couldn't even eat his and ended up spitting it back in his plate. Two of us ordered the 8 oz. filet...and there was no way we were served 8 oz...and the meat came to a point at the top like a roast would...and even tasted roast-like. I love filet, but this was not good at all. The red, mushroom sauce on top was fabulous. And beside the filet was a re-heated baked potato. Just plain. Sitting there. We were offered toppings for the potato, but we were very disappointed in the potato. The sea bass was fair...with grainy scallops on top. The cream spinach sauce somewhat overpowered the sea bass. This is my favorite fish, but I didn't even eat half of it. The dessert options were cheesecake (my husband got that it was very plain, but fine), pecan pie with ice cream (my mom got that and it was very hard on the top and dried out...which the ice cream did not help), and my dad and I got the chocolate mousse cake (which was very dry and I ate one bite and stopped). To top things off, when we left, the "valet" ended up being the owner. We had commented to him on arriving about moving to the new location and chatted about that a bit. So as we were leaving, he didn't notice us but was in a conversation with someone on the patio. When he finally noticed us, he said, "Oh, you were too quiet." Then he asked us how our food was. I told him we had dined there many times and loved it, but this night were very disappointed. He asked what we ordered...I told him. And his only comment was, "well, everyone loves our filets." Went and got our car. End of story. We will not be back.

Food was delicious, a little bit expensive though. When i made my reservation I called them to see if they could bring a small piece of cake at the end of dinner for Birthday ocasion, they told me they would and took note of it but they never did it...

Maitre D' / host doubles as bar tender. Wait staff attentive yet disinterested in their tables. Music was good but often too loud for table conversation. Dress code not enforced... This restaurant is way too pricey to find the couple seated next to you is in shorts. Quite a change from the elegant restaurant I remember. Will not return.....

Food was very good and service was professional. Great music and atmosphere. Desserts were not up to the standard of the rest of the meal, but they were still good. We would return if the opportunity came up again.

My husband, our three grown children and son-in-law celebrated my Birthday at The Old Warsaw. The food was incredible...I think even better than at their former location. We were not rushed, and the server even came back and suggested that my husband select a different entree as the server did not feel that what my husband had selected was up to Old Warsaw standards. It is such a treat to have a great fine dining experience that isn't a "chain".

It has been a while since I had been to The Old Warsaw. Thought we would try since they had moved to the new location. We started in the Kennedy Room with cocktails, a definite find for an uptown bar. I will definitely go back. On to the dining room for dinner. I personally had the Lobster Thermadore, that I have not had in years, because it is hard to find. It was fantastic. The rest of the group loved their food as well. I also wanted to mention how delicious the steak tartar was!!!

I took my daughter to dinner but I didn't know what to expect because of the location change. Although the food was good and the piano was great, I'm not convinced it's any better than some of the other high end restaurants in the metroplex or in uptown for that matter. I will visit again for the small cozy atmosphere.

My husband and I went here on our anniversary and we were sooo disappointed! I wanted to try the beef wellington. I don't know what THAT was!! The meat was raw the dough was not done, and they had this little square supposedly goose liver and mushroom pate sitting on the top of the meat under the raw dough, and it was sour!!! This was served with what looked to be rewarmed mash potatoes. My husband had the salmon which was less average. I ended up with the same thing, salmon. We only wanted to go somewhere we hadn't been before and eat a gourmet dinner......never again will we ever go here!!
p.s. The place needs an updated. The décor is a bit outdated.

Celebration of our 49th wedding anniversary. First time in the new location, having dined at the old location several years ago. Everything was perfect beginning with being picked up at our hotel (Renaissance) by a driver from the restaurant. We discovered on the return trip that our "driver" was actually the restaurant owner. That bit of information put an exclamation mark on the evening. The flowers I had ordered were awaiting our arrival at our table just as I had hoped. The new location still has the same formal feeling without the darkness and stodginess we somewhat felt at the old location. It's a beautiful, intimate, and welcoming space. The food was excellent, eclipsed only by the personable and efficient service. The baked goat cheese was other worldly and the smoked salmon and red snapper superb. The meal was capped off by a slice of delicious, complimentary "anniversary" cake delivered to my wife. Although the piano music was at times a little frantic, overall it had the feel of being in a movie scene. A lot of older popular music, much of which were themes from movies, that generally played softly in the background so that you knew it was there but it was unobtrusive. The cost of the evening was significant, but by today's standards, for a special occasion and for the value received both in food and treatment, it was well worth it. We'll be back.
