Polo Steaks & Seafood - The Colony Hotel Ratings and Reviews
We have had lunch at least a half dozens times at the Colony in the past. Poolside is lovely with fine food and impeccable service. We hope this visit was a one-time aberration. The food and surroundings were as pleasant as always, but the service, if you could call it that, was sluggish and invisible. We would have understood long waits and inattention if the place was busy, but they were having a quiet day with plenty of servers in attendance. That said, we'll will try the Colony again soon, with fingers crossed.
We came for Polo's famous lobster salad, and were disappointed by not seeing it on the menu. However, with a little arm twisting the chef agreed to prepare it, just for us. And it was as good, if not better (fresher?) than before. And Moet champagne was a nice fit to a perfect lunch.
We would definitely think that the lobster salad should be a regular item on the Polo's lunch menu.
The Polo Lounge at the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach is an institution. My wife and I used to be regulars with weekly reservation until about two years ago. We were not fans of the updated look which attempted to give the feeling of being at a polo match. In addition, prices were increased to the point where it was no longer comfortable and management added a music charge to the bill.
Last week we decided to take a trip down memory lane. My wife and I were married there in 2008 and it just seemed time to return.
We recently learned that the hotel was under new management and significant changes had been made.
We were very pleased. We were seated at our old table. The staff was friendly and professional. The menu was reasonably priced and the food outstanding. Our only negative was an a/c vent that blew directly down at the table. Another slight negative was the volume of the excellent band. It was just a bit too loud for table conversation and our table was about as far away from the band as possible.
Overall the experience was excellent as always. We plan on returning in the near future.
Considering it is off season, we couldn't understand why we had to flag down a busser to get the water refilled. Natalie, our waitress, was fine but the support staff certainly let her down. Food was good but no exceptional. We try to get all the better dining spots during the off season and now we can check this off the list. I'm not sure if we will return anytime soon.
Been going to Colony for years . My favorite place for lunch in Palm Beach . Pool side ambiance great food and friendly staff are all excellent
The chicken chopped salad is fantastic but lots of other great choices
Diner is more a party atmosphere with entertainment and lively bar great for singles . Diner food is continental and very good - the steaks are thick and juicy
The decor is about Polo and very Palm Beach
Everybody has a great time at the Colony
We were one of TWO tables.
Service was very slow
Hard to imagine with TWO tables occupied
Waiter was very aloof.
When presented with the bill, I checked to see that we were not billed for a salad that he forgot to deliver.
He never apologized - he didn't care.
I will not be going back to this restaurant
Hello Mauricet, The restaurant staff could be trained to leave all diners' plates at his or her place until ALL diners have finished. This is just proper etiquette. At Christmas dinner I was embarrassed TWICE by a server (not Tracy, who is always a delight - very professional) grabbing my plate away when my guest was still eating. When I requested she return my plate she was snippy and rude; she quite took the sparkle off the occasion. Yours, Judge R. Khawly
This is a perfect example of that expression "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me!" Friday night Motown was fun and enjoyable but I strongly suggest eating before you come for the music. My wife have a steak she couldn't chew, my Salmon was over cooked, and I received two of the smallest pieces of salmon I had ever been served. Add to this joke was the fact that the crusting on the salmon was almost as thick as the salmon itself! Nothing short of a blatant ripoff
We were drawn to the Polo Sunday Jazz Brunch for the music. Bill Mays is a piano legend who we try to catch in NYC if our schedules align. We were thrilled to have the chance to see him in an intimate setting for a relaxing, nowhere-we-needed-to-be, brunch. Bill and his bassist did not disappoint, but the surprise treat was the delicious brunch fare. Way more food than anyone needs to eat -- this is an off-the-menu brunch -- we found our choices fresh, delicious and well presented. In addition to the appetizer and entrée menu choices, patrons may also select from a buffet of starters covering the fresh fruit, yogurt and pastries realm to ceviche, fresh and tasty shrimp cocktail (tasty. really. how many times is this rubbery, tasteless, and has a texture that screams it was prepared awhile ago?) , a robust charcuterie and cheese plate, to prime rib sliders that my 18 year old son pronounced delectable. Still hungry? Across the room is the made to order pasta and omelet station -- again, fresh, (I opted for a very veggie laden pasta with fresh lobster and shrimp) tasty, handily created to your preference and delivered to your table. Desserts are lovely, petits fours styled treats that we really didn't need, but enjoyed nonetheless. Of course, there is an old school vibe at Polo which is charming and includes a rolling bar cart with bloody Mary's, Mimosas, and Bellini as well as outdoor seating by the pool. All that lovely food aside, we were there, after all for the music, and nothing disappointed! Save up your appetite, set your mind for a bit of time travel in ambience, have a glass of champagne and partake of delightfully good food at a good value ($60 pp). Get there by April 3 to hear a jazz legend as the icing on this cake!
Was excited to go to The Colony and return to Polo Steaks. Last summer our experience was memorable. This time was no repeat. Our server was impersonal and really rushed us through our meal despite the restaurant not being full. The Caesar salad was notable, prepared table side. The salmon encrusted with horseradish was overcooked and tasteless. The entree costs even for Palm Beach were very pricey! For the same money you could find better options in town.
They don't make them like this anymore. The Captain was at least 90. The staff was very formal and well trained. I haven't seen a table made Ceasar Salad in a long time and it was very good. The steak was excellent. Many of the diners seemed to be from the hotel and were far more casual than the Palm Beach people. We left before the music started but I think it was going to be good. There were quite a few grandfathers guying drinks for their "grand daughters." It was very expensive, particularly the wine and liquor. All that said, I'd happily go ago.
The inspiration for our trip to Polo at the Colony was to hear jazz pianist Bill Mays, a friend of over a quarter-century. He told us about the great food and we weren't disappointed. There was plenty of variety, plus a a small buffet, omelette station and dessert buffet. The decor and ambiance were terrific, while we knew the music would be great. The one suggestion I would make to Polo is to have a flasher in place of a ringer on the phone at the bar, as a ringing phone is very annoying during live music.
