My best friend and I treat each other to brunch for our birthdays each year, and we both look forward to it so much! The food at Polo is always fresh and delicious, and the service is unrivaled. If you're staying at the Garden City Hotel, or just happen to be in the area, it's a must-try!

Interestingly enough even though Open Table took my reservation, the Polo Lounge was closed for dinner. We ended up having our business dinner in the Pub at the Garden City hotel (one of the best burgers I've had in a long time)

The Restaurant was fantastic. Food, ambience & service were impeccable. We were escorted to our table where there was a lovely birthday card (my husband's birthday) signed by the staff. Nice Touch! As far as value, although everything was terrific it is definitely a bit pricey. However, since it was a special occasion & not an everyday occurrence, it was doable. In general the noise level would have been perfect had it not been for some guests who where in the adjoining Polo Lounge with their Ill mannered, loud & obnoxious brewd! One would think that people would excercise the ability to think clearly & realize that you don't bring children that are uncontrollable & rude into this type of establishment. It would behoove them to hire a babysitter!!!! Common Sense!
Having said this, the overall experience was top notch & I would highly recommend it, particularly for special occasions.

The food was very salty and unfortunately we never said anything to our server so we did not give them the opportunity to fix the issue and provide us with a meal we would have enjoyed more.

We visited Polo Grill during Restaurant Week (January 2018) to get together with friends. Their Restaurant Menu was not included on the Restaurant Week website. Knowing the reputation the Garden City Hotel, we thought it was a great opportunity to try it. While the restaurant is nicely appointed, the wait staff was attentive, the menu choice was minimal. We have had much better fare at other restaurants in the area participating in Restaurant Week. Morton's Steak House t had filet and a number of other choices vs. Polo's sliced sirloin, chicken and fish. The two desserts offered were good.
While we had a wonderful evening and a meal that was average I would choose another restaurant next time.

Excellent dinner and service. There was a little too much time between appetizer and dinner but it's better than being rushed. We both had the scallops, which I have to say, is one of the best restaurant dinners I have ever had. The room was a little cold (temperature wise) so I was not that comfortable. I would recommend this for a special occasion as it's pricey, or if you want to impress someone!

Asked for our date night table to moved from two larger groups on each side of us to a table across the room that was not being used ( actually 3 tables were unoccupied ) and we were told NO. Suggestion for their staff to have better customer service

The restaurant presented my dessert with a birthday candle and didn’t sing to me thankfully. I would have given an outstanding rating if my cherry clafoutis hadn’t been dry and tough. The rest of our meal was perfect. Excellent service. Relaxed atmosphere.

I took my wife for her birthday after visiting the Red Door Spa located downstairs.
The staff wished my wife a happy birthday upon checking in with the host. They even gave her a birthday card signed by the entire staff and brought out desert singing happy birthday. The food looked and tasted fantatic. The service was Top notch as well.

We will Definitely be back!
