The food at Old Town is out of this world! We have enjoyed this restaurant for many years. There is a wide variety of authentic dishes to choose from - the Serbian sampler platter that had small portions of several of their recipes, Goulash, Sarma, Chicken Pilaf, Fish, and the Burek which is layers of phillo dough filled with meat,...

We listened to old ethnic music and had a lite salad and bread to start. The entree's come out in good time and the first time I had the meatless version with couscous, chick... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner celebrating a birthday. The food was fantastic and the service great. The flavors are rich and homemade. We've been there before and will go back again. It is easy to drive by, so pay close attention. Also note that it may be cash only.

The beef and cheese burek is outstanding. Try a glass of the house red wine, it's delicious! The service is second to none. Be aware that credit cards may not be accepted. Check at the time of your reservation.

We had just gotten into town and did not know that the kitchen closed at 2PM. We arrived at 1:55, the owners asked the chef to stay to prepare our lunch. Our group of 5 were the only ones there. The food was excellent, service great. Owners and staff talked with us before and after the meal. We will eat... More

Knowing that the hostess/waitress could pronounce sarma and burac correctly indicated I was in an authentic Serbian restaurant. Arriving at 5pm, the opening time, we were greeted in a very friendly manner by the hostess/waitress. Prior to our orders she presented a sample of a recommended wine. Slivovitz is a country drink; but we passed on it. Burac and sarma... More

We went to Old town Serbian gourmet restaurant 2 weeks ago, the reviews said the decor was outdated and I think it is just a typical European restaurant, the decor is not the american one we are used to but it wouldn't be good with any other kind of decor. The food was delicious. My husband got the goulash that... More

We wanted to try an authentic Serbian restaurant . They have an unbelievable menu of fresh made entrées. The Bread was wonderful and the ajvar was very good. We had two kinds of sarma and goulash . Portions were large and tasted great. The strudel was made fresh to order and was worth the wait.

my wife and I went here on a groupon----I'll admit the looks from the outside could be painted or something to freshen up the looks----but the food is so worth a visit----the groupon deal was so simple---no restrictions at all---order whatever you want and they took $30 off the total bill---I was surprised how few folks were dinning at 7...

Went there for Saturday night dinner. Very few people in the restaurant. I think it remains a hidden gem! Great variety on menu. Delicious food and lots of it. Service a little slow but had great staff and lots of food to enjoy. Could fill up with the ethnic roasted pepper spread & spreadable cheese. So good! Definitely will go... More
