We went to this restaurant on Christmas Eve and overall the food was good, the service was good too. The restaurant was not busy, just three or four tables occupied. In the background we could hear some Romanian carols. What we did not like it was the washroom situated next to the kitchen. It was dirty and smelly like urine.... More

If you like easter European food, this is the place to go, they ambient is as original from Romania as you expect, they even have live musicians playing original Romanian music, the food is very good and fresh, we try some of the traditional dishes and we like it a lot, the wine list and the beers are Romanian too,...

Romanian garden is simply fantastic and we return regularly. The food is superbly cooked home style and very well priced. Service is friendly and excellent along with a nice, lively at times atmosphere. You could be there during a Romanian party or wedding for example. Honestly everything is superb but stand outs are the smoky eggplant appetizer and very fresh... More

We visited this restaurant several times during the last couple of years. Most of the time the food is very tasty and very authentic Romanian. The prices are very reasonable. We usually try some Romanian wines with the meals and they can be hit-or-miss, like the service.

Enjoyed a meal with a large group of business associates. Fortunately, one of them had Romanian roots and was able to guide us through the many historical flavors of the country. So many interesting appetizers, and the service was great. An outstanding value too.

I tried the Stuffed Cabbage ($12),came with polenta, smaller and with a different taste then all my previous experiences with stuff cabbage. Polenta was good. Also tried the Mititei ($12), a...

We have been at Romanian Garden many times. We really appreciate when a place is consistently excellent - no matter when we visited the place - daytime, evening, weekend, week day - the place maintains its high standards. We love Romanian plum brandy - we were lucky enough to get brandy imported from Romania most of the times - unfortunately,... More

As a Romanian I cannot be totally objective. I like Romanian food... But this one was almost like there... All the food was good, service was attentive and knowledgeable. Good Romanian wines are available but not only. A pleasant experience. I would add more decorations...

Lunch at the RG was great! All the good eats of my childhood and young adult years, done just right. Or, as we would say: "ca la mama acasa!" (like mother made it at home) We ordered a bunch of appetizers: polenta with sharp cheese and sour cream, eggplant (vinete), breaded and fried aged cheese (cascaval pane), mixed pickles (the...
