Went here for a late lunch and what a treat. Started off with a beer (half priced bottles on Tuesday) and my wife had the delicious mulled mine. Followed that up with some soup, Pickle and Borscht, both mind numbling amazing. I seriously thought about...just having three cups of soup for lunch and I don't think I would have disappointed in the slightest. Next we did the spinach pyrogies and again, what a treat. Had a serious discussion about if next time we should just order cups of soup and plates of all th pyrogies. Finally our mains were delivered. I had the Atlantic Cod which at this point, I could barely put back but was very well prepared and presented. My wife had the Stroganof which was very much the same. We ended the meal with more beer and was delivered a complimentary desert for our anniversary. The service was phenominal, the atmosphere eaually so. I do recommend however not sitting on the south wall of building on sunny days, was uncomfortably hot at times.More

Never enough times to get to eat here. There are other menu items but I like the Wiener schnitzel. Dill sauce or mushroom gravy available as extra.

My last visit was pre covid March 2020. A friend took me out for my 65 birthday last week. The Schnitzels are always good; the salads tasty. The complimentary bread not as good as 2020; the butter taste is not tasty (is it butter?). Service...was good. Thanks!More

On Friday we decided to do take out. Since we haven’t been able to go to our new favourite restaurant for a sit down meal we did the next best thing, we did take out. Four meals were ordered, Polish Cutlet with pan fried potatoes,...Pork Schnitzel with potato salad, Salmon with Spatzle, Chicken Schnitzel along with two loads of the best gluten free bread. Each of our meals were beyond delicious. We had the best take out meal and can’t wait to be able to attend the restaurant when it is allowed again.More

We ordered four early take-out Mother's Day meals for May 08 (Munich Pork Chop, Trout, Rack of Lamb and Chicken Stroganoff; two salads and two soups-pickle and sauerkraut). The food was all delicious and the servings were huge, resulting in at least two meals for...each of us. We cannot wait until the pandemic has ended (we will not eat inside before then) and we can return to the comfortable and friendly atmosphere of this excellent restaurant.More

Brought my family to this restaurant for my parents’ anniversary. My mom is celiac, so it was amazing to dine at a place where we didn’t have to ask a million questions about ingredients and substitutions or worry about cross contamination! Everything from the service...to food from appetizers to desert was excellent. Our server was gracious when she did make mistakes and corrected them right away. All of the staff were so kind and welcoming. We will definitely be coming back!More
