Disappointing!! They seated us upstairs because “only the people who dine there daily” get the lovely 1st floor seating. Food came out VERY quickly as if it was already prepared in the kitchen and they just heated it up. Salads and Polpo appetizers were sopped in oil. Avocado salad was made using iceberg lettuce. Salmon was ok, just good. Pastas were very good. Service was poor....they refilled water once. We live in area. We won’t return to this restaurant. There are more better quality places.

The server forgot to put in our order and we waited over an hour for dinner. Then he pretended he hadn't done so.....really annoying.

The food was disappointing and the server was on top of us the entire dinner and not in a positive way. We were pushed (asked 5 times in 15 minutes of arrival ) to order, pushed to finish each course ( had to stop him from taking plates and glass’ before finishing). We won’t be back for dinner but the piano player in the bar is a plus.

Always a great vibe at the restaurant. Extremely crowded and customers definitely were vocal about wait times even with reservations.

Food was great, had the short rib which was beyond tender but portion was tiny.
Risotto was just okay, still hard.

Waiter was way to busy. Service was not great. Had to ask for water over 10x.

Food was excellent. My friend said the veal milanese was the best she ever had! Service very good. They were going to sit us upstairs but I asked for a table in the main dining room and they accomodated me. That meant alot to me.

This is one of my favorite places but not this time. Service was horrific. Sloppy, inconsistent, rushed, rude, forgetful, bringing someone else's order to our table and then charging me for some of their items. REALLY!!!! It has never been like this. Even the bread which is usually wonderful was dry, old and disgusting. Quite surprising for such a wonderful upscale restaurant. There was one head waiter and two back waiter and two bus boys and in a section that had with tables. I'm completely bewildered why the level of service on this past Saturday night was completely awful. A persons dining experience (not that you justify a price with an outcome) for a location like this, with a dinner total for two guests with two glasses on wine and no dessert at $ 280.00 AND they brought the hot water for one cup of tea and NEVER came back with the tea bag, is really unprofessional.

Visiting Stamford from Nashville Tn on a business trip with friends..enjoyed a fabulous meal at Polpo’s. Great cocktails, Italian entrees lovingly made and killer desserts! Highly recommend the veal piccata, the daily risotto and the tagliatoni bolegnese. All the desserts were wonderful too. Our waiter took wonderful care of us and made for a most enjoyable evening.

Horrible service and experience. Celebrating my birthday which they knew. They kept us waiting at the bar for over 30 minuets. When finally at the table I asked the waiter specifically what vegetables the entire comes with and he said none, you need to order a side dish (another $13 appx) when the food came there was a medley of veggies so we didn’t need the side dish.
Very pricey, poor service.
Not impressed after hearing great things over the years.

Third time trying this restaurant. First, sat a bit after 10pm for an 8:30pm reservation. Food was good and service fine when finally seated. Second, 5:30pm, service was excellent, but "angry lobster" was bland and boring. Third, was Christmas night at 6:30pm. Food was atrocious! I had chicken that was tepid, dried out, and covered in oil. Probably sat in a chafing dish prepped for hours. My wife had swordfish that was thin and rubbery. My daughter got a stomach ache. Yes, it was a holiday, but for almost $100 per person, if the second string can't produce edible food, close the restaurant. Sorry I didn't photograph the swill I was served. FYI, it was Christmas, so I let it go, tipped well, sucked it up, and just won't go back. But I feel compelled to warn others of extreme inconsistency, over three tries, amounting to expensive slop.
