The Old Warsaw is not what it used to be; The wait staff and piano player were exceptional, but the food, ambience and dress code has gone downhill.

My wife and I visited your restaurant last night to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary. We frequented Old Warsaw many time over the years but not so much lately. I must say I was most disappointed in both some of the food and the service. Our waitress was very good. However, she was the only wait staff working that night and could not keep up. I know it was a Wednesday but she had seven tables to serve and two of those required dishes prepared at the table. Ordering drinks was a problem. I did order two Gin and Tonics and both came without any garnish of lime. I had to request extra lime to get that garnish. The most disappointing dish of the night was my order of Escargot. The menu says "large escargot in a garlic butter sauce" which you would expect. Instead I received a scampi boat of pieces of snail in a green cream sauce with a strange spice taste. This appeared to me as the kitchen was short of escargot and concocted this dish to pass; it did not pass. Service was so slow that we ordered a bottle of wine, and it was not until we were 3/4 through our meal when we cancelled the wine. This is not the Old Warsaw We remembered. I will say the main courses were very good and the piano player was excellent.

Steaks were perfectly done as always - we go every year for our anniversary. We were sad to find out the piano player isn't there on Mondays!! We'll have to remember that in 7 years!! Service is always top-notch and they are always very accommodating. I would always highly recommend this place!!

Tried this place out looking for exceptional steaks. I found their appetizers were very good. Ribeye steak was average. Not as flavorful as I would have expected. Had some language barrier with our waiter who was also the bartender. Only 20 guests there for a Saturday night. Will probably try again after all the covid stuff is over. They seemed to be struggling

It was very quiet, as there wasn’t anybody else in the dinning room until about the time we had our dessert. We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and my birthday. Our server brought out a piece of cake with a candle and sang Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary

best affordable restaurant in Dallas. its cute, has a vintage feel to it. the service is excellent, always on top of everything. the food was outstanding. steaks were cooked perfectly, don't really like the sauce in my opinion. wish they had A1. the cheesecake though, was probably the best cheesecake I've ever had. the creme brulee didn't taste like a creme brûlée, it had a tarte taste to it, watery, instead of more like a pudding. the shrimp cocktail only had four shrimp which was disappointing. overall I would definitely go back.

I can’t speak to the food or service but when we walked in the place was like 90 degrees. And they had been open for an hour already so it should have been cooled down. I told the waiter it was hot and he said “sorry” but didn’t let us know if it was broke. Or just hadn’t been turned on yet. We sat at the table for a couple minutes and then decided to was too hot to stay.

We've been to the Old Warsaw three times now and the first two times were wonderful. This last time left us very disappointed for the following reasons:

1 - our entire table ordered the filet mignon and were told later that they had run out of them. They subbed in a supposedly larger ribeye.
2 - the ribeyes were supposed to be 16 oz but one was at least 24 oz, one was just right and one was just a hunk of fat and not edible. We returned it and another ribeye was provided.
3 - we had our reservation as a birthday celebration and, while we saw cakes with candles and singing, etc. at other tables, our was somehow missed. Not the biggest disappointment of the night but it just added to the overall frustration.

On the bright side, the service was decent and the piano player was wonderful, playing songs upon request.

Basic, unimaginative Country Club cuisine. Ordered the Chilean Sea Bass, portion was small and maybe ½ inch thick. Everything took longer than it should have considering the number of staff and guests: drink order, getting drink, ordering dinner, getting soup (mediocre French Onion), time between courses. The staff was cold and impersonal: I swear not a single person smiled during the two hours we spent there.

We celebrated Valentines day on Saturday Feb. 15, and what a wonderful experience. We had te Valentines special Lobster Thermidor and it was perfect. The wait staff superb and the piano player was amazing. Everything about the evening made us feel so special, it was as if we were the only people there and everyone catered to us. Thank you for a memorable evening....we will be back again soon.

Overall service was fair. I think we had more visits to our table from the hostess and the water pourer then from our waiter. When I inquired about the wine selection, the hostess said she was underage and could not answer my questions. I asked our waiter and he did not know.

Overall food taste was good but I was not happy with the food selection and presentation. It was Valentine’s weekend and they had a special fixed price menu for $70 per person. This was a Saturday night and the specials went through Sunday so they were only halfway through the weekend. I ordered the 22oz bone in rib eye but was told they were out and they would substitute a boneless rib eye of a similar size with asparagus instead. When it came out, I estimate it was a 12-14oz rib eye and had three stalks of asparagus and a whole lot of French fries (which were cold). My wife got the lamb which was a decent portion but it was supposed to come with sweet potatoes. When it came out, the plate had one small piece of sweet potato and a pile of regular mashed potatoes which was not on the menu.

We have liked our previous visits to this restaurant but was not happy with this visit after paying $70 per person.

Old Warsaw is a tired curiosity. Food was fine, if very straightforward, and there was a piano player, which was delightful. But the service was...well, absentminded was maybe the best way to describe. Waiter returned - twice - to ask us how we had told him we wanted our steaks. After telling him one of our party had an extremely serious dairy allergy, steak shows up under a cream sauce. Just his. Something that was not described on the menu. Not an experience that inspired confidence. Just too many better restaurants in Dallas to think about returning.

Went for Valentines dinner. Way overpriced. Old Warsaw salad was recommended but was pathetic. Escargot was too rich. Lamb chops were delicious. Snapper was good. They charged extra for a coke refill! Atmosphere is so dated. Went for romantic dinner but on,y thing romantic was the piano music. Why not add a single rose to the table centerpiece especially for Valentines Day? Valet process was disorganized. Service was fair at best. No one ever came over to ask about our dinner. Will definitely never go back and would never recommend to our friends. I never write a bad review but felt compelled to write this one. Sorry Old Warsaw.

Out of the 1st 2 wines we ordered and out of dessert on the published menu. It was difficult to discern who was actually our waiter.
The food was fabulous as well as the atmosphere.
For the $$ we would have liked better service.

We went for an early Valentine's dinner, meaning not on Valentine's day. I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews but in all, it was a great evening. The only thing of note was the wait for the Valet - seems he does not have a good place to stay while waiting especially on cold rainy nights like it was.

As far as the rest of the evening - that was a 5-star evening. We went in for the weekly special as seen in the paper. We had a drink at the bar first and then went to the table. The barmaid was very nice as were the rest of the staff we interacted with. The wine choices are wide enough and also be sure to check on the nights' wine specials - some bargains to be had there as well. Note that you also need to request the weekly menu as it differs from the pris fixe on the menu.

The service was attentive but not rushed and the food was served hot and at a good pace. There was also plenty of it, and I am a pretty good eater. Our dishes included the Escargot, Filet Tartare, Bisque, a green salad, Filet, Shrimp and Chilean Sea Bass - which I believe was the 'real deal.' All were prepared and cooked to perfection. Truly for the price this was an excellent experience. Perhaps on busier nights things can get a bit rough, but this night was a truly delightful time.

Sadly, not what it has previously been. Salad good but cold.
Table side offerings were offered 15 feet away. Quoting the server: “I could not get the table where food was prepared to your table side.” So much for romantic.
Sole Entree was excellent, side of rice was terrible.

I like the old world charm. It seemed like they just opened when we went as the waitstaff was not as available as we would have liked for a restaurant of this caliber. Pretty much one person as the main waitress for all the guests there. Also, it was almost too dark in the dining area. Lastly, I had to search to find the valet when we were done, found him playing pool in another part of the building.
