We are excited to announce that we will begin limited indoor dining on June 20th, 2020.

Owner Ron Rosa said we have to fight this together, fear is the worst enemy.

Delivery or curbside pickup is still available.

Definitely a locals hangout. Old school. Attractive bar and bar area dining. Outdoor dining nice. Interior room not so great. Waiter terrible. Food took forever. Noise level crazy high.

THEY PUT US UPSTAIRS AND WHEN WE ASKED , WHY THEY SAID THAT’S WHERE THE MAITRE DE SEATED YOU.
IN. A CORNER WITH A LARGE TABLE OF CHILDREN NEXT TABLE TO US. THEY MOVED US, BUT WE DO NOT FREQUENT THE RESTAURANT AND I BELIEVE THEY PLAY FAVORTISM

1. Food was excellent. 2. We were not lingering, ordered appropriate amount of food and cocktails; yet were told that there were people waiting for our table. We ordered as soon as we were brought menus and ate our food when it was served. I found this very offensive for a pricey restaurant. There was an open table for 2 about 10 feet away so I am not sure why we were being asked to leave. 3. The valet ticket says "$4 tip recommended." That struck me as presumptuous and not very classy. 4. The drinks are extremely expensive ($17 martini) and not very good. 5. Waiter lectured me on the fact that I did not like the drink and requested an adjustment. This is a drink I order every place I go so I am very familiar with what it is supposed to taste like. 6. Apparently, CT is now doing zero social distancing, so that's my fault for not realizing; but this restaurant was particularly crowded and noisy. I did not appreciate how close the tables were to each other.

It was ok not as good as we thought it would be. What was strange was we were only 2 people and we were sat upstairs among all these families with young children when the downstairs was fairly empty.

Food was great, lights kept flickering in the dining room upstairs. Had dinner would be a cute place to go to for lunch. Pretty sure they packed the dinning room to the max to serve everyone. Noise level was high. Food was spectacular waiters were a bit much felt like they were hovering over you.

Although the hostess was rude and didn't want to accommodate our seating request when there were clearly available tables, the manager took swift action to make us happy and keep us from leaving. I've been a long time customer and will keep going back due to this reason.

Food is delicious so long as you can handle it being over-priced. Ordering a small side of spaghetti to go with my chicken parm (which should come with pasta to begin with) cost me an extra $19 when I got the bill. So... $55 for a chicken parm with pasta side. Wow.

New Years Eve Celebration - early reservations 5:45p
When my husband & I arrived the hostess was only interested in “where are you from?” We were were abruptly
brought upstairs & seated in a completely empty dingy room and placed in a corner with a heater directly located over our heads- I commented on how empty the room was.
The hostess replied “don’t be fooled.. this room will be completely filled by the 6 o’clock seating. Needless to say
One other couple was seated during our 1hour 45min
dining experience. Apparently, the room downstairs was where the ambience & wanted patrons were seated.
We were dressed appropriately. I felt as though we were sent off to misfit island because we were from “RYE NY”
& not from the Greenwich zip code. The seats were “very uncomfortable” The old red rug was dirty & dingy
Not impressed!!!!! We will stick to Aurora’s in Rye.
Marianaccis in Port Cheater. Much better service, food,
clean! Doubt we will ever return!

Thank you for choosing to come celebrate NYE with us at Polpo. It is always such a busy day for many restaurants and an exciting day for all. All of our table assignments for NYE were pre assigned prior to the day to ensure proper room for all. I can assure you that where you are from had no impact on where you were seated, it was just pleasant conversation that was being made with you. We do hope that you will come back to Polpo again on maybe not such a busy night, so we can serve you again.

Tried going back here again because we always wanted to try and eat in the bar area which seemed more casual. We were given the table next to the bar & piano. The problem was that there was no social distancing at bar or the tables. Everyone was right next to each other at bar. We both ordered the Baccala special entree. We enjoy getting this at this time of year. We have had numerous times at another restaurant and always very good, but this one was not cleaned well enough and was very salty , almost uneatable. Also no time between courses, felt as if we were at a fast food restaurant instead of what is supposedly an upscale one. This was the 4th and last time that we will be going to this establishment !
