This is by far my husbands favorite wine bar, he just loves the exceptional variety of amazing wine. Personally I hate wine so my love of Romeo & Julieta's is simply the food. Having eaten here at least a half dozen times now, I thought a tripadvisor review was way overdue. My grandfather was of Polish descent and being able to get some authentic Polish cuisine set in a cozy wine bar is just perfect. My husband loves their flatbread pizza, me, it's the pierogi and stuffed cabbage when available. The cheese platter is terrific as is the baked Brie. Just a perfect date night location.

A polish restaurant in Talmadge. It is a great locally owned wine bar with great food. We had cucumber salad in yogurt, pierogi and pork cutlet stuffs with cheese and ham. Portions are big enough to share. Wine during happy hour is $3.50 a glass.

It is a small place so get there early as it fills up quickly. There is also outdoor seating.

Price are reasonable. We will be back.

What an awesome, cozy, and out-of-this-world charming find. Back entrance off Monroe Street could be hard to spot, but we easily found the parking lot. Great signage on the outdoor wall. Like the other reviews, we loved Diana and Anjae(?) and their server and their welcoming manner. We even tried out our meager Polish on them. Ha! Check out the amazing ceiling - just like being in Europe. Exposed brick walls and intimate ambiance add to the charm. Ok, on to the wine and food. Wine: we ordered a bottle of their wine special - a reasonably priced red blend from Lodi that we really, really enjoyed. Once the bottle was gone, we each had another glass. Beer: Yes, they have Polish beer and it was really tasty. The menu is amazing. We started with a shared appie order of pierogi (you get to select 4 out of 8 choices) and we especially liked the kraut and mushroom, and the beef. Comes with a delicious dill cucumber salad. Oh, and the crusty bread and garlic alioi are unbelievably fresh and delish. Be warned: entree portions are huge, so three of us shared two entrees (Polish Sausage Platter AND Polish Schnitzel) and were glad we did. Big hit was the kielbasa. Oh my goodness! Both entrees came with more cucumber salad and cauliflower mashed potatoes. One entree had even more cabbage sides and yummy onions. We ate and ate and raved and raved. One of us ordered the bbq flatbread and it was also huge and delicious. It seems you can't go wrong with anything you order here as everything we tasted was absolutely scrumptious. Although stuffed and happy, we were not ready to leave, so one of us ordered the apple tart dessert and tea that led to more raving. You can't go wrong at Romeo and Julieta - it's adorable and delicious and a touch of Poland. What's not to love!

Needed to have a large business meeting with 20 people and we decided to have it at Romoe and Juliette. The owners Anjae and Dianna were awesome and very inviting to our group. We were treated like royalty. The food was amazing and the wine was delicious. There is free parking in their lot and plenty street parking. Anjae is from Eastern Europe and his food reflects his ansistory. I personally had the stuffed cabbage rolls as a entree and the perogies 4 different ways got my appetizer. The watermelon salad was fresh and so delicious w goat cheese. If your looking for a intimate place or a place to conduct a casual business meeting or looking to buy this place out for a event look no further. They are awesome.

We were so delighted to finally get a restaurant in our little known neighborhood, and for it to also be a wine bar is a huge bonus. We have become friends with the owners Andrej and Diana and love our evenings at this quaint location.
