The Old Warsaw Ratings and Reviews
Salad and Steak was good. Dessert (Cherries Jubilee was basically a scoop of ice cream with some cherries on it). Service was SLOW. Parking was not good.
Atmosphere was nice, but this is definitely a people watching hot spot...think high end Senior Living restaurant.
Not cheap (runs about $75 a person not incuding drinks), but Dallas is expensive and the steak was tasty.
May go again when my Mom is in town, she's in her 80's and would like this place.
To say the least, it was an overall disappointment. The food was average at best for the price point. The lobster bisque was the worst we’ve had in the city, it was more like a lobster gumbo. Awful, sent that one back. The two filets ordered by the girls were tough, not good for the best cuts. The beef Wellington was, however, very good as was the Dover sole once you got past all the sauce and toppings. The scallop appetizer was way over cooked. The cherries jubilee was average. The service started out fine and became neglectful as the night progressed. For the price, there are much better establishments in Dallas. We won’t be going back.
My husband and I enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner last weekend at The Old Warsaw. The food was excellent, the ambiance romantic, and the piano music wonderful.
We spend far more than we normally would for a meal, and it was quite a distance from our home, so we won't be making it a regular "haunt," but for a special occasion, it was remarkable!
I loved my evening at the Old Warsaw restaurant! My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary at what has become a real treat for me. The food and wine was excellent and the service was awesome! So was the pianist who gave a great rendition of romantic favorites. I can’t wait to go back!
Our experience was a little "less-than-perfect" in that we arrived and there was no one to greet or seat us. We sat at the bar where there was no bartender and waited. Shortly a woman passed by and said I'm the bartender and will be back shortly. Before she returned another woman (not a hostess or wait-person) came by and said she would seat us. We said we'd like to have one drink at the bar and she pretty much insisted on seating us (there was somewhat of a language barrier). The service was spotty throughout the evening but the food was amazing, the piano player was a joy and fun and the wine list was very good. We enjoyed the evening but all in all the service could have been better.
After having first read other reviews on Old Warsaw, I found our experience to be very much what we expected. Wonderful formal large dining room. Very short, but quality staff on a Monday night. Only two other tables had diners while we were there. Soup arrived lukewarm but the lobster salad with Antoine sauce was “to die for “! My table mates did not share a bite! We were there for the beef Wellington and it was a large portion, cooked medium well though we had ordered medium rare. Very tasty! The clear winner for dessert was chocolate mousse cake. Bread pudding needed more-maybe a rum sauce? We enjoyed the meal and would return for their menu choices, but not often at their prices... I would not choose Old Warsaw on a weekend or busy holiday.
Looking for a place with romantic ambiance and great food. Went on a Thursday night and were surprised that we were one of very few tables occupied. Obviously expected, though because it appeared that one waitperson (along with an assistant waitperson) was handling the entire restaurant. Food was excellent, but there were couple of "hiccups" in service. Nothing bad, but a little slow - plus our a la carte salad didn't show up until we asked about it - as the entrees arrived at the table. The two waitstaff had that "deer-in-the-headlights" look and then provided the salad (worked out just fine - just a surprise at this level of dining).
Had to hunt for the valet once we were ready to leave.
All-in-all, it was a "Good" experience - that could have easily been "Very good" (don't forget that the food was excellent!)
This was my first time ever going to the Old Warsaw and it did not disappoint. The service was very attentive, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was great. I had the lamp chops and that was some of the best meat I've ever had. I would recommend to someone looking to celebrate an anniversary or special occasion.
We ate with two other couples for New Years Eve dinner. It was the first time since they moved to new location. The new digs are an impressive upgrade. Old Warsaw has been around for years and I forgot to think about it for a long time. The food is very good and the prices are wonderful. I had the avocado and lump crab appetizer and the sea bass entree. Both were wonderful. I love german chocolate cake and their's met my approval as one of the best I've had in a while. Service was attentive, but left us alone enough to enjoy our friends. New Year's menu was a shortened version of the regular menu, so I can't wait to go back to enjoy more of what they have to offer.
I have been there before on multiple occasion and it had always been a superb experience. I went in Sunday night thinking it would be just as the previews times, to my surprise it was the complete opposite. Beginning with the "special chefs" menu. The selection was not adequate for a NYE feast let alone the desserts. All of them looked like cake sheets bought from Albertson's or Walmart. I ordered a drink, an old fashioned, and it was never brought to me. The table next to me which sat afterwards all received their drinks. After I inquired about my drink, it was then brought to my table promptly. As for the dinner, my wife ordered the filet steak and I the 18 oz. bone in rack of lamb. Both were cooked well done and scorched on the outside. We asked for medium well. We did not complain because we wanted to leave as soon as possible from this establishment. When we were initially given the menu, we were disappointed at the dinner selection. We would have walked out but per the employee that called to confirm our reservation, we felt obligated to stay against our will because we would have been charged $100. I will also mention, the lobster macaroni was awful. I have had the lobster macaroni from this establishment in the past and was not disappointed. But on this occasion, it was not creamy but runny, and the elbow that used macaroni felt like it was undercooked.
I would not recommend this restaurant when the menu is limited and on special occasions or when it is a special holiday. If someone wants to truly enjoy this establishment, they should go when it is not a busy time of the year.
Lastly, the overall price was definitely not worth it. At most it should have been $50 a person, such as the price that was given this week.
Our first visit to the Old Warsaw was a half way point meeting with friends. We have seen yall's advertisement on Billboards around the Dallas area. We enjoyed the 3 course meal along with the rolls prior before our meal. The main course was the 22 oz Rib Eye myself and guess both committed that our steaks were cooked to our liking but it was tough. Our knifes had trouble cutting threw them. The girls enjoyed there meals 1 had Sea Bass and the other had the 8 oz filet both committed that there meals were great. Thanks you for review request. Happy New ......
We have gone to Old Warsaw for years! We have never been disappointed! The food is always delicious and well presented on your plate. Unlike some restaurants in the Dallas area, you
are given generous portions. The service is attentive without being overly attentive.
The new location is beautiful. They have private dining spaces, which are suitable for
family or business meals. Always valet parking...and no waiting for an extended time to
get your car.
The Old Warsaw is now living on its name.
Our reservation was for 9 and was first placed in a large unadorned hall. We protested and were then moved to small table.Service staff poorly trained. escargot and mushroom soup served cool. Pumpkin cheesecake half frozen.
At $800.00 plus no way

Fixed price menus offered great choices at reasonable prices. Appetizers and entrees were excellent quality and good portions. Service was very friendly and attentive. The desserts were disappointing though. Several diners says their soufflés were “eggy” and my key lime pie was mild and not tangy as expected.
A very nice location and setting, but the food did not deliver the value I expected. Old Warsaw has a good reputation, but we experienced several mis-steps.
Our order was incorrect. My filet was to be medium rare, and my wife's medium. They were switched. I had lobster mac and cheese, which I did not order. My wife did not receive her mashed potatoes. We received them after about 10 minutes. The mushrooms on one steak were cold. My brie soup and key lime pie were exceptional. Despite the issues with our order, the service was excellent, attentive, and friendly.
I just don't know why I would go back when there are so many steak house choices in Dallas.
I’ve been to the Old Warsaw several times over the past several years. It has an old style traditional atmosphere and service, and has some menu items you rarely see anymore (like lobster thermidor). It has always been an enjoyable experience but this last visit, they seemed to have lost their sense of timing.
Except for the rolls, EVERY dish was brought out, well, lukewarm at best, and sometimes downright cold. As one might imagine, this really detracted from the overall experience. There were only 12 customers in the place, so it hardly could be attributed to the workload, and in a place that’s been around this long, could only be attributed to a serious lack of attention. I sincerely hope this was a singular event and is corrected immediately.
We had a great time. Their interesting preparation for Escargot with a sauce was excellent and a nice surprise. The dinner rolls were fabulous. The lobster and crab appetizer was loaded with lobster. A bargain. The asparagus was badly prepared but overall it did not detract from a fine dinner.
This was our first time visiting and it was our Anniversary and we wanted something nice, romantic and cozy. I would have enjoyed a better table away from others but it was find.
I really enjoy the gentalman that played the piano. He arrived shortly after our dinner was over, but we still got to enjoy the music. Everything was good. Next time we will make a later reservation. I think we were to early.
Lobster Bisque was watered down,no sign of cream, steak was great , lobster was tough and hard to find on our plate.
Waiter not very attentive, and we didn't seem to be welcomed
Was not a good experience at all
Have attended your restaurant a number of times since the 80's Then it was great,we probably will not return
Our dinners were exquisite. The room was beautiful. Service was attentive and polite (not too familiar or chummy). We enjoyed the piano music, but unfortunately we were immediately beside the piano, which made conversation at our table a little difficult. If we had been seated a bit farther from it I would rate our dining experience five stars across the board. Very reasonable prices, too, for such a nice evening.
If you want to enjoy classic menu items that you haven't seen since the 60's, this is the place. Live piano, rich wood paneled walls, old world wait staff and service. The Old Warsaw is a gem. Give the beef Wellington a try... or the lobster thermidor. Great cocktails... excellent desserts.
