On the first night in Warsaw on our business trip we went to go for dinner at the Boathouse. Food was good and the portion were huge. Service was friendly and it felt great to be there!

We went for a business dinner, the view is nice, that’s about it. The steak was a slab of grizzle that tasted of nothing, the fries were cold as were the onion rings. The service was average. Unfortunately not worth the visit

I go to the Boathouse almost weekly for lunch & they always have great service with great lunch specials. Try one of their many fresh salad options or the Margherita Pizza lunch special. It has food options for everyone or any group size.

My wife and I had dinner here tonight. Although we've never had a poor evening here, I can't remember ever having a better all around dining experience. We were seated quickly and personably. The meal was delivered very quickly. The manager checked in on us....More

This restaurant has elegant dining and also service that shows attention to detail. Meeting some business colleagues there made it the perfect place to meet. The potato-crusted cod was excellent and cooked well and seasoned well. They do have luncheon specials as well. There is...More

The restaurant was very busy and there was a wait to be seated, so we sat in the bar. The bartender was very nice and took good care of us. I had the chipotle chicken sandwich and the smashed potatoes. Everything was so good and...More
