First time at this restaurant - food was outstanding, Caroline our waitress was fantastic - combine these two and we’ll most definitely be back and will bring additional quests!

Enjoyed our New Years Eve dining very much with 3 other couples. Do not know restaurant well enough so do not feel qualified to answer question above but it would probably qualify for many of the recommendations above. Brain did a great job serving us! Food was excellent!

We went there New Years Eve for their special dinner. It was very good food but it’s not a quiet dining place if you want to catch up with someone. My only complaint is that they served an expensive red wine in a white wine glass. I asked, and they said they were out. Really, on New Years Eve? I wouldn’t even do that at home. Anyway, it was a good evening and service was very good.

We ate at the Polo Grill for New Years Eve. Fixed price menu had several good choices from their full menu. Four courses, and they were all delicious. As the title hints, the bone in ribeye was excellent.

The food wasn't that great at all and the buffet table was a mess and busboys cannot even clean it.

Extremely disappointing. After various Holiday Brunches here this Christmas was the most disappointing. Service was minimal, had to request and re-request refills of iced tea. The food was extremely salty, no cocktail sauce for the shrimp etc.... This used to a be an almost Ritz like atmosphere from the food to the service and it has deeply gone down in quality. Very sad about it.

The food was mediocre considering the $42.00 per person price tag.
No one came to take our drink order until I involved the hostess.
My son's glass had a long hair in it which, of course, turned his stomach.
After all that, was charged a 20% "gratuity charge" for three people at a buffet!
Needless to say I will not be darkening the door to this establishment again.
This was our second try at this place. The first time was not much better, but I wanted to give it a go mistake!!!!

We are pretty easy to please but the service here was terrible. Couldn’t even find a server to begin with after we were seated. Realize it was a brunch/buffet but still to sit and wait as long as we did just to order beverages. Then we didn’t see her once the entire meal after she delivered our drinks. After finishing our meal, we waited and waited for a check and again we had to have someone go find our waitress just to pay. In fact, we went up to hostess as we thought possibly we paid up there. Once we finally received our check it was disappointing to see an automatic 20% gratuity added. We didn’t have a large table, just four of us, plus being we served ourselves and had absolutely horrible service, I’m not sure why we went ahead and paid the 20% without complaining. We always tip between 20-25% but this server was not deserving at all. The young guy that made sure to refill our drinks and take away dirty dishes did an excellent job. Not sure of they were understaffed with servers but this really was a huge disappointment. The 42 per person wasn’t a bad price for all the food we got and the majority of the food was really good. Hard to recommend though with the service we received.
