Pickle soup is terrific! Although, very few choices for a vegetarian as soups are made with chicken stock, not vegetable stock. House salad was made with iceberg lettuce (ours was a bit wilted and brown, but edible) wish it had been spinach or something other. Main dishes were great though... would definitely go back.

We went early on a Friday night and didn't have a problem getting a table, but they recommend reservations on Friday/Saturday. Food was amazing and staff were very friendly and did a great job explaining the dishes. We'll definitely go back!!

Service tends to be slow but servers are very friendly. Food was tasty. Pass on the chrusciki- they didn't taste fresh. Otherwise, very good.

All the soups are very tasty! Our favorites were the sauerkraut and the pickle soups. The Golabkis are a must!

From Our Editors

When Denver Westword critic Jason Sheehan visited Cracovia Restaurant and Bar, his summation of the meal ended up sounding less like a restaurant review and more like an Alice in Wonderland–style memoir dripping with passion and faux nostalgia. At one point, he recalled a desire to tackle a waiter who had walked by with a plate of cabbage rolls, so that he could "grab the golabki with [his] teeth and drink the tomato-mushroom gravy straight from the tureen." Later in the meal, he and his wife felt so connected to the food, they almost felt Polish themselves: "If our mothers had been Polish … this would've been what we ate growing up, " Jason said, "This tastes like home cooking in the best possible way, tastes of time and care and experience and love."

Love is probably the key word here: it's not surprising that Jason and his wife were so enamored with their meal, considering Cracovia is a labor of love for husband-wife team Lester and Marie Rodzen. They named the restaurant after a Krakow hotel where they honeymooned more than a quarter-century ago, and they pour this affection for their home country into each of the from-scratch Polish dishes they create, which is part of the reason they were named “Best German/Eastern European Restaurant Denver 2014” by Denver Westword. The aforementioned golabki—cabbage rolls stuffed with pork and rice—is one of the Rodzens' signature dishes, as are the homemade kielbasa and pierogi stuffed with meat, cabbage, cheese, or blueberries, all purchased at local farmers markets. In the spirit of its romantic inspiration, Cracovia is a perfect date-night restaurant—every Friday and Saturday night, live singers croon as couples make their way to the dining room's dance floor or three-legged racing area.
