The Old Warsaw Ratings and Reviews

We had exceptional service! The ambiance is very nice with the dim lighting and the pianist playing. The food was outstanding. Escargot was exceptional. We sat in a booth which is nice and cozy and you can expect no rush at the Old Warsaw. They let you enjoy your wine and dinner completely. It was truly romantic. There is no place in town like the Old Warsaw. Its true fine dining. Its unique and classy and the live music was so enjoyable. The new location was wonderful. Looking forward to the next visit.

Went to enjoy our 31st wedding anniversary. Called in advance and notified them of the occasion but no acknowledgement at any time during the dinner. Food was very good, prepared exactly as ordered. Service was lackluster - coldly efficient but not personable. Definitely was a disappointment from previous visits to old location. The bright spot of the night was the pianist who played great arrangements

This was our first visit to the new location. Looked forward to going back to an old favorite.
However, everything was a bit disappointing except the atmosphere. The lamb chops had no flavor, the steak was OK but not a great piece of meat; and the duck was tough.
When we were finished all but one dinner plate was cleared in a timely manor and it sat for another 10 min before being cleared.
The young bus person was trying extra hard.
The music was enjoyable.
Probably won't return.

Excellent food with generous portions and good service. We chose the Fixed Price Menu. The decor in the main room is very nice but the side room is more basic. Valet parking is great. I would have liked to see more choices in wines by the glass, but otherwise everything was great and we enjoyed ourselves.

There was a large group in a separate dining area which caused the noise level to be extremely high and wait staff made no effort to close off that portion of the dining area. Wait staff was slow. Piano player rushed through songs. The prime rib lacked flavor and was tough. It is old but nice facility which reflects deferred maintenance with wires hanging from the ceiling.

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!!!
