I really enjoyed the Royal Warsaw. We got there early enough, about 5:30 pm. The place was filling up right before we left. The place seems to draw an older crowd. They had very nice table arrangements. The wait staff was very polite and courteous
We started with the Sampler Pierogies (potato, meat, sauerkraut) and the Grilled Kielbasa served with bread and mustard, something I haven't had in years. The main meat was Poledwiczki Po Krolewsku (grilled pork tenderloin served with hunters sauce, whole small potatoes, and steamed veggies). I really enjoyed the dessert, which was ricotta chesse wrapped in a crepe with cinnamon and sugar. Be careful - it's very hot when it leaves the kitchen!

The Royal Warsaw was my first foray into Polish food, and I must say it wasn’t a very promising one.When I walked in, the smell hits you.My husband says it’s sauerkraut which it could very well be, but I’m not so sure.Whatever it was, I didn’t like it.
We wanted to keep it real and so we ordered all things Polish.For appetizers, we had the Polish Style Grilled Kielbasa and the Sampler Pierogies (tasty, but nothing outrageously fantastic).
My main course was the Schab Pieczony (baked pork served with mushroom sauce, mashed potatoes, and vegetable platter).It wasn’t what I expected - the vegetable “platter” was just beets and salad - I was expecting different types of vegetables that were either steamed or sautéed.I don’t care for beets, and the salad had too much dressing.I tried the salad anyway and it just made me cringe - it was too greasy. The pork itself was too dry.
For dessert, we deliberately stayed away from the tiramisu and the cheesecake and all things Italian that they had, because we wanted to keep it Polish. We had the crepes, which we were told is a traditional dessert. Not bad - it had ricotta cheese, orange skin, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla.
About the only saving grace of the Royal Warsaw was the attentive wait staff we had. But even she was not enough to dig them out of the two-tongue hole they got themselves into.
