    We used to frequent the restaurant a lot, but this last time the food was terrible. They got rid of the onion bread which was a staple. The meat was all super spicy. My husband's brisket had no sauce on it. Very disappointing experience.

    5:30p reservations; not many other diners. While waitress was nice enough & prompt, food was slow to arrive. Were they out catching the fish, picking apples for apple streudel? Food was not even piping hot like it was just out of the oven. Not what it used to be.

    The service was great. My bratwurst plate was to spicy for me. The potato leek soup could have more thickness other wise it was good. The saurkraut was just right. The music was a bit to loud. The ice cream sundae was realy good. We did get there early and were looking for saurbraten but it's not ready until 4 PM. We will have to showup later the next time.

    My wife and I have enjoyed dining at the Jolly Onion for many years. We generally dine on weekdays. The German inspired food is always good quality, well prepared.This review is not about the food- it is about the service or lack thereof. We were a party of six, four adults and five and three year old on a Sunday. One of the nice things about the Jolly Onion is that it is the kid friendly. The place was more than half full and very noisy, it has the acoustics of a gym. We were seated and waited about ten minutes for our server to take our drink order. The drinks came and our orders were taken. Approximately 30 minutes later no food and no server. Finally I was able to gain her attention. I asked the status of our order the server left and returned very apologetic saying their wifi was down that is how kitchen received orders. The server said she would put the in with a rush. 30 minutes later no food. Finally food. Server still very apologetic offers free desserts. Happily accepted. Meanwhile the children had reached the limit of good behavior and are racing around our table. We were grateful that by now the restaurant had mostly emptied. Ok dessert are now ordered two came out ten minutes later another then five minutes the last. Meanwhile our completed dishes were left on the table with no one to take them away. The busboys who delivered our orders seemed to lack any concern about removing them and ignored a request for ketchup. Below the body of this review is the question whether to recommend this restaurant the answer is yes with this caveat beware the service can be awful.

    First time at this restaurant and I will never be back. They brought my soup with my food as bd I told the server it was not wanted since my food came out. She told me I would be charged anyway. It was very upsetting and I asked for the manager. Not a good experience!

    Friendly, welcoming& warm greeting by the staff. We were seated right away. Wait staff was excellent, very attentive . Our drinks and meal came out well timed. The French fries are legit, the broccolini was cooked perfectly. The only thing that was off putting was the vodka martini was watery and a short pour.

    Horrible service - no silverware when meals were served. Soup was served without spoon. Dirty plates left on table when desserts were served. Finished dessert before coffee was served. When I complained to the waitress she said we are doing the best we can.

    Very loud indoors. There was a very loud rock band playing inside at 6pm on a Saturday night. We asked repeatedly to be moved, we were told there were no other tables. Other tables were moved, numerous tables complained about the noise. We were all told the management asked the band to lower the sound but the band “doesn’t like to listen”. Many tables left. Wonder how much business was lost because the “band doesn’t like to listen” to the management??

    We had reservations, but the place was not very busy even for Easter Sunday. Our waitress with so friendly and nice, but unfortunately, the service was incredibly slow and we had two young children. We put the kids' food in first and their food and our apps came fairly quickly. The blooming onion was really good. The rest of our food took a really long time and the perogies were pretty bland. The salmon and Swedish meatballs were dry and we had to go to the hostess just to get ketchup. I thought the food was better in the past. Lastly, we were made to give a 20% tip since we had six or more guests (we had six guests), even though two of the guests were kids under five years old (I understand policy, but it seemed odd since two of them shared one meal anyway).

    We have tried this a few times over the past couple years with different ownership and kitchen staff and sadly, it just keeps disappointing us. I will say, our serve was very nice and attentive. Otherwise, the music was nice but much much too loud for the dining room. I ordered a salad with grilled salmon and the lettuce was brown with slimy cucumbers. The salmon was cooked nicely but there was something funky on it that I could not chew so that was basically enough of that. My husband had pulled pork Mac and cheese and it was just ok and not a huge portion. We were never given drink menus or any info about specials. The ambiance is not great, lighting is awful in the dining room and it’s just so loud you can’t have a conversation across the table. With so many other options in Warwick, we likely won’t be back.

    This place is very cute, but super loud- the live music is so loud that you could hardly hear your waiter and the people at your table. The food lacked flavor and was cold. The two best things at this restaurant were the service and the cocktails.

    In full transparency, the server did advise us that the kitchen is in training - so when the food came out, we were prepared. We always order the pretzel. It doesn’t come on the big hook anymore. But was still tasty. The mustard sauce was too sweet and the cheese sauce seemed a bit like what you get from a fair vat. My daughters penne vodka was more cream sauce than a tomato cream sauce. The chicken was place on top and had a robust Cajun seasoning. Seemed odd. And it was really dry. My chicken sandwich tasted like it was fried in a bay with other foods which tainted the flavor. And it too was exceedingly dry. I liked the brioche bun. My other daughters salad (and I can’t remember the name) she liked but I think it was a wedge? So not too difficult. We will go back at some point. Hopefully the kitchen works out it’s kinks. Our server was lovely and responsive. On a side note; the lighting in the main dining room is terrible. And too bright. It was not cozy at all. And so noisy ! You could barely hear anyone speak at the table. My recommendation, sit in the bar area - much better.
