This was our first visit to Polpo in 7 or 8 years but did not disappoint. Bar area is warm and Comfortable. Food is consistently good (we had a veal dish and a pasta bolognese, along with excellent steak tartare as an appetizer. Service was prompt, and the bill was about what you’d expect from a higher end restaurant in Greenwich. We will be back sooner than 7 years next time!

The Chilean sea bass i received was about 2 inches by 3 inches and the sauce had been sloppily wiped off because it was the wrong sauce and there were about 5 string beans and 3 shaves of carrot on the plate. Ive never had such a poor meal there ever and I've been going there for at least 10 years. Very very dissapointing.

I want to start by saying that we had never had a bad experience until last night at Polpo. The evening started with a few drinks at the bar. 7 cocktails costed us $149 without gratuity. This is outrageous! 2 cosmos, 3 martini s and 2 Manhattans. We didn’t order any crazy brands either. We proceeded to dinner. Appetizers were good and when my friend and I went to order we were recommended to have the veal parmigiana. I usually don’t get such a simple dish but we went with it. My friend switched from the fish order he made before I asked for the recommendation. The veal was awful! There was barely anything under the mound of cheese and undercooked sauce. I was up all night with stomach issues. My friend who never ate here was disappointed. To make it worse they charged $59. It came with nothing on the side either. I will probably give them another chance but not anytime soon.

First time dining at Polpo for my wife and I- one of the finest meals and overall restaurant experiences that we have ever had! We ate at the bar as is our preference at most establishments.

The food was sublime, yet generously portioned. The cocktails were served by an expert, convivial, and equally generous team of experienced barkeeps. Front of the house was courteous and entertaining. Our piano player for the evening provided a broad, sweet range of tunes that, one could easily perceive, all of the diners enjoyed whilst many sang along at times.

We will return to Polpo as often as is humanly possible without descending into abject gluttony.

A very active busy place. We had dinner in the bar which was a bit too noisy, but the whole restaurant was hopping and energetic. Amazing that they were able to provide excellent service and food given how crowded it was. Not inexpensive. You will see some, "fabulous" people there. All in all, a good experience.

Overpriced, menu has increased by $15 a dish. Kept needing to ask for everything, ie water when we sat down, menus, etc. The staff overlooked us constantly like we weren’t there.

We sat at the bar and Laura was our bartender. We were going to have a quick drink and then go to our table. However Laura was so welcoming and sweet that we decided to stay at the bar and have dinner. It was all because of Laura! She set such a wonderful vibe with perfect pitch: efficient, attentive, funny, and pleasant. If Polpo could clone her, the world would be a much better place. A+ to Laura!!!!

Polpo is always excellent. The restaurant hosts and staff are amazing, the food is always prepared to perfection, and the valets couldn't be nicer or more efficient. The bar is festive and inviting. The dining room is comfortable and cozy. You cannot go wrong with an evening at Polpo.
