I visited the restaurant during lunch, and you would think that it was closed. No guests inside and we had to walk back to the kitchen to get a member of the staff. The food pretty good, but we did not have the great service the other reviews rave about. I'm a huge fan of Polish food and I drove almost an hour to get to the restaurant. It is definitely not worth an hour drive. But if you are a fan of Polish food, its pretty good.

The food and the service here are absolutely top rate. I had the Krokiety (croquettes filled with pork and topped with mushroom gravy), my wife had the Pierogi Ruskie (dumplings filled with mashed potatoes, farmer's cheese and sautéed onions), and we split a cucumber salad. Everything was perfect. The inside of the restaurant is very elegant; in fact, it is nicer than many of the trendy places in Buckhead. The live view of downtown Krakow is a nice touch. We had a table of seven, and the server never missed a beat. All of our food was brought to the table hot, and our drinks were always full. My nephew drew a picture at the table, and the owner promptly scanned it and put it on the restaurant's web site! Best of all? We enjoyed freshly prepared meals and imported beer along with top flight service for half the price of a trip to a chain restaurant. You simply cannot go wrong with this place. I'm a customer for life.

First, I've never had Polish food before so I had no idea what to expect. On a whim we stopped in to the restaurant which shares a parking lot with a gas station. When you walk in the front door your astounded by the beauty of the interior design and decoration. The server was one of the owners and was clearly excited that it was our first time. He gave us great suggestions on meals. We sampled their pierogi plates which were incredible. You can mix and match pierogi dishes to try a bunch of varieties (just ask them - they are very accommodating). I wish I had stopped by sooner, as this place is my new favorite. Trips to exotic places may be out for a while but for a new adventure (at a reasonable price) try this place out.

A true gem. With a lovely decor you would find in some of your finer Buckhead restaurants and the professional service to go along with it. Though there is a romantic feel the lighting is bright enough to be comfortable. The dining area was spotless and clean. The quality continues with the food, that I was told, was cooked two Polish women who are also part owners of Gizma. The Zurek, a sour rye soup, was unbelievable and served in a large portion with sour dough bread on the side. It left me drooling! My wife had the Kotet Schabowy, Basically pork and breadcrumb mix fried in oil, which was just plainly wonderful. I found myself stealing several bites until she could fend me off. I am not one to ever give a perfect score to any restaurant however this one surely earned it.

This authentic Polish restaurant is not only unique, but also wonderful! The decor is modern and clean, the service is exceptional, the wine list is varied,the prices are reasonable, and the food is absolutely delectable. The chefs are directly from Poland and all the food is made from scratch with only wholesome ingredients. Every item was well-balanced and full of flavor. This restaurant is an absolute unique gem in a city of copycat restaurants. A must try!
