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.

We had the soup/salad/1/2 sandwich lunch special, all of which was delicious. Service was attentive. Will definitely come back.

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.
