Fairly limited menu. Décor needs updating. There are other places in the same area that have better food and more ambiance.

Lynette was a wonderful server... attentive but not overbearing. The menu was limited because of Valentine’s Day but it was all delicious. The noise level was much improved over our last experience

Valentines Day. The experience we had last night at Polo Grill was very disappointing. The food was very poor quality for the price charged. We expected the same great food we enjoyed at a brunch we had on Christmas. We dine with other Open Table restaurants frequently. The steak was so tough my wife could not chew it. The shrimp and scallops risotto was equally disappointing. The shrimp were delicious but the sea scallops were cut in half. We enjoy Michael’s on East most. They provide great food for a great value! Interestingly enough, Michael is Tommy’s brother and Tommy should take some lessons from him on all fronts. We will not return again to Polo Grill.

Went there for valentines day. Excellent fixed menu just for that day. I say fixed, but with each course there were options. Great service also.

Let me start by saying our waiter was amazing. Friendly and attentive! Our food was just so-so. The lamb dish was tasty but a little dry. The scallops &b risotto was very good. The dessert was not worth the calories.

We have struggled with polo grill for years. This is probably the best menu they have had in a long time. Love the grilled fish options. We both had fish and both dinners were excellent! Service was also very good. We did go to the bar ahead of time and it is very uninviting. First observation was it smelled like cigarettes. No one was smoking so assume it was coming in from the side doors? Very bright and echo'y. Hardly anyone in there (which I guess I understand). Not sure what the point of the bar is. Very cavernous. Not warm at all. Dining room was pretty empty also. I miss having table clothes on the tables. It was also very loud with nothing to absorb the noise. I think the dining room needs table clothes to soften things up. Also very bright lighting. Prefer darker, cozier atmosphere. But good news is the food and service was excellent.

We visited Polo Grill for a Birthday Celebration. We were a group of 12 and had a private dining room.
The staff was accommodating and the service was excellent. Food was delicious . We ordered a few trays of appetizers and the presentation was very impressive.
I would recommend the PG for a special occasion or a romantic dinner for two. It is a classy place with a diverse menu and unique offerings.
