- Third time was a charmLWRLisaDined on 8/16/2014Bill and I frequent the Polo Grill and always have a first class experience. We enjoyed all three of the Lobster Nights and are looking forward to the next Bar-B-Que theme. It's a great place fit for foodies looking for a fun vibrant place with excellent food and service! Tommy and Jamie are the best and Polo Grill is the nicest restaurant in Lakewood Ranch.Special Features:
- First visitOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/14/2014Service was a little slow at the start, due to a large group being seated. After a bit of a wait, everything was delightful. The food was excellent, the service returned to normal. A great experience. It is a great find in our neighborhood and we will be coming back often.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Upscale AND Gluten Free - NO WAY!AcufoodieDined on 8/9/2014The menu is simple yet refined, fresh and healthy. They use mostly local organic ingredients and everything is just delicious. I would recommend this great place for both casual dining and special occasion.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GerryDined on 8/2/2014My order of Lobster was very good at a good price. Although I had spoken to Mark the GM by phone when making the reservation and had discussed my wife's vegetarian needs, our waiter was unaware of her needs and not very helpful. In the end her dish was mediocre at best. This is unfortunate since I would have liked to add Polo Grill to my list of favorite restaurantsSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 8/2/2014Every thing was great only it took way to much time at the end. The waiter spent to much time talking at other tableSpecial Features:
- Fit for foodies!LWRLisaDined on 8/2/2014Dining at the Polo Grill in Lakewood Ranch is always a delightful experience. The menu is progressive, the wine list is great, and the ambience is always perfect. The service is great and the staff is very friendly and make you feel like you are their one and only guest. Their sea bass is my favorite. If that is not your taste, fear not because any item that I have tried on the menu is delish!Special Features:
- Quality & quantity don't = priceDiningStarDined on 7/26/2014Very disappointing experience for our party of 4. The lasagna was soupy and tasted like it had freezer burn. I got I'll 30 minutes after consuming my shrimp scampi. Steaks were good, but very small. Won't return. Dinner prices were $18 to $27. Definitely not worth it.
- Lakewood Ranch residentpommiesmommieDined on 7/8/2014food was very good but at 10 minutes before closing we were told that so we left but there was another table still there eating. Our party of 4 didn't appreciate this especially after spending $300 plus so we won't be back. We dined inside and would have come back to try outside but not now.Special Features:
- New menuFrequentdinerDined on 7/6/2014Excellent new menu but still disappointingly quiet and lacks atmosphere making it too quiet for a couple alone.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellence Every TimeckurzVIPDined on 6/25/2014The title says everything. I frequent the Polo Grill personally as well as for business events and the experience is always thoroughly enjoyable. I appreciate all of your efforts in making every meal and event amazing.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food Great ServiceRegularDined on 6/21/2014Lover or dinner thank you Polo Grill we will be back!!!Special Features:
- Anniversary dinnerlocalresidentDined on 6/19/2014My wife and I came here for our anniversary dinner this year. We usually choose one of the high-end restaurants downtown, but decided on this local one. We were not disappointed. We started at the bar and enjoyed half-price happy hour cocktails with the friendly, energetic bartenders and other folks at the bar. It was busy and lively. We then retreated to the quieter dining area where we shared a delicious Angus steak appetizer followed by raw kale salads and scrumptious Chilean sea bass entrees. For desert we shared the upside down apple pie. The food was well-prepared and delicious. The service was casual and friendly. This is in our neighborhood and we usually pass it up. We'll be back more often.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I love the Polo Grill.SAMVMMMDined on 6/15/2014We love the Polo Grill. We have been coming here since it opened. The food is always exceptional and the service is good.Special Features:
- Father's DaynomnomnomDined on 6/15/2014Are you kidding me? A 2lb Lobster dinner with clams, mussels, boiled red potatoes, corn on the cob, a salad and desert for $32.50. What a delicious deal!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lunch at Polo GrillOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/13/2014I dined at the Grill for the first time ever & was with a friend who has dined there many times. We specifically went because it was Restaurant Week, & then were informed that it was only for dinner, not lunch. My food was delicious (I had New England Clam Chowder & the grilled vegetable Panini) but my friend's lunch was poor (she had the chowder, which was great, but her salmon entrée was terrible). The service was not good, as the utensils were removed after our chowder, as though we were finished dining, & the rest of the service was very SLOW. My friend complained to the catering manager & had her bill reduced by half. All in all, a disappointing experience.
- redecoratedladytodineDined on 6/7/2014The new remodel is very nice. Cozy and contemporary. What's not to like about equestrian decor. I was with a group of 6 and no one was wowed about their dinner. One person had her steak over cooked. I had the egg rolls which were good and lettuce wraps which were not so great. My husband had salmon and it was also over cooked. On the brighter side, I was there with a large group for lunch and we were very pleased.Special Features:
- ADandSDined on 6/5/2014We went to Polo Grill to try its Savon Sarasota offering. We went at 7:30 on a Thursday and the place was not full at all. The service was excellent and each plate was delicious. It is the first time we came back to Polo Grill in 5 years after a bad service experience. All OK Now!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- For your informationOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/5/2014Menu limited wait staff friendly but lacked experience. Pepper mill asked for twice. No milk served with coffee. Food was not served hot ,warm
- lessismore$OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/25/2014Beautiful establishment, amazing bar area and wine room. Our appetizer and main course tasted good but the shrimp cocktail is over priced for four small shrimp, should be colossal size. Be sure to have your waiters let customers know that the added ice cream on the lava cake is an additional $3.00, again over priced. The kitchen was out of three main courses and our first choice appetizer.Special Features:
- SURPRISE!!!PrivateDinerDined on 5/11/2014Having been here for Mothers' Day brunch before, expected the same thing. It was a surprise how good the food was and how fresh it was even though on a buffet. Something for everyone, well prepared, well presented, and staff was extremely helpful.Special Features:
- DisappointinglululucciDined on 5/11/2014The food was mediocre. I was surprised when the first course of the buffet, raw oysters and delicious smoked salmon, did not offer any utensils with which to serve. I mentioned this to two employees who were in the area with no results. Another guest asked and there were finally tongs to serve the salmon. Still no utensils for the accompaniments for the oysters were available. No flower for the mothers which is offered at other restaurants and no complimentary mimosas. We were prepared to have more than one. We also objected to the assigned gratuity of 20% which is usually only done for large groups. We would rather have had the opportunity to decide for ourselves the appropriate gratuity. Superior service is gladly compensated.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mother's Day 2014thescrutinairedotcomDined on 5/10/2014We ate here for dinner to celebrate Mother's Day! The special of Veal chop was divine. The other two plates were well put together and showed well. The taste was lacking a little seasoning but overall well done. We would have liked our waitress to have checked on us more often especially since there was not a lot of other seated tables in the dining room.Special Features:
- Our ExperienceOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 5/3/2014Overall we had an excellent experience. The level of noise from the bar was so loud that we had trouble hearing each other at the table. However, at our request, they closed the door between the bar and the restaurant and all was well from that point on. Our server, David, did a fine job; there when we needed him but not overly attentive. The food was exceptionally good!!! Raves for the grouper, salmon and pasta dishes!!! We will return!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Easter Brunch with the masses.PeterRabbitDined on 4/20/2014Don't usually do brunches and almost go out to dinner on Easter. Polo Grill did a stellar job of taking care of everyone and handling an exceptionally large crowd with some wonderful food covering many varieties that had to satisfy everybody's desires. I wanted to sample most everything and ended up not eating for the rest of the day and the following day!Special Features:

- Great food, interesting atmosphere,OpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 4/12/2014Great food, interesting atmosphere, convenient location. The wine room is in the middle of the restaurant encased in glass floor to ceiling. Tables located around this room give it a unique feel. The food is somewhat unusual but still appealing to the conventional eater while also interesting to the 'foodie". The food is well prepared and displayed beautifully. We were a party of four and each of us found our meal more than satisfactory. The wait staff was well trained, very personable and very attentive. I highly recommend it.Special Features:

- Good night outParteegirlDined on 3/28/2014We went with friends and when we got inside the air conditioning was very cold. We asked for a table outside instead. It was very pleasant and the food was very good and well presented. Our server tended to forget us at times since I think he had several tables inside. However, he was very courteous and friendly. We would go there again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Impromptu Dinner outDLRSVIPDined on 3/27/2014We just decided at the last minute to dine out. Polo Grill was a great choice for us. LOVE their 16oz Ribeye it is so flavorful and cooked to a perfect medium as I requested. Both my hubby and I love substituting the spaetzle for frites (fries) .. .. it's a nice change up and the chef is European, so the spaetzle are done to perfection!Special Features:

- Good ChoiceonewhoknowsDined on 3/14/2014It was my wife's birthday and Polo's was suggested by her sister who has a friend who was singing there that night. The service was very pleasant. Servers were attentive without being intrusive. They were enthusiastic about helping with photos to commemorate the day. The food was as good as anything I have sampled in this country or in Europe or South America or any other place in the world I have visited. I have only one complaint and that was from after dinner. The volume level of the band in the bar. It was well ABOVE 90 decibels Hearing loss occurs with noise levels above 90 decibels. My ears are still ringing. Please be careful because some people in Florida have successfully sued for music noise levels that cause hearing damage.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Lovely & TastyDLRSVIPDined on 3/8/2014Met a friend for dinner at Polo Grill. We both had the same wine, the BR Cohn and loved it. The Goat Cheese Pillows on a salad was oh so yummy. Warm goat cheese surround by a filo and it's crusty. Not sure what the dressing is, but this dishes is delicious. My entree was the herb-roasted chicken with roasted brussel sprouts and I asked for polenta to replace the mashed sweet potatoes. This was a great and tasty dinner. Our server, Nancy, was very attentive and we wanted for nothing. A nice evening at the Polo BSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
