The former Polo Grill has changed hands. Don’t go!
While the welcome outdoor dining option was comfortably heated, the noise level was high. Given the limited choices for dining these days, one can deal with some noise. But the food and service were outright terrible right from the beginning. The recommended white wine was like water and its replacement not much improved. No apology, more like disdain. Three of us ordered the Pompano special. Thirty (!), yes 30 minutes later, the waiter announced pompano was no longer available! We reordered but did not get our dinner for another forty-five (45!!!) minutes, despite repeated reassurances that our dinners had priority and were “on the grill.” When the dinners arrived, without apology or comp offer, not one dinner was anything but mediocre at best. But for the great company of and conversation with good friends, the experience was a complete disaster.

Just simply missed the mark for a birthday dinner. This was our first visit to Polo Grill as we are relatively new to the area. Had heard good things so decided to give it a try. Service was excellent (Greg) and outdoor setting was very pleasant (except for the cigar smoke from a table some distance away...but what are you going to do/say....it is outside). Lobster bisque was very good as was the bread served prior to entrees. I had the lamb chops which were more medium than medium rare as I requested. Portion was reasonable, but flavor was lacking. Brussel sprouts ordered as a side were tasty (bacon - yum), but undercooked. Husband's seafood sauté was a generous portion and included a good variety of seafood, but again, flavor profile was lacking.

I have been told it is under new management after an extended closure over the summer. I hope they are successful and will give it another try in coming months.

Superb outdoor dining and service. Management would do well to invest a bit more into the ambiance of the outdoor seating area as I predict post-COVID it will become EXTREMELY popular.

We were one of two tables seated inside in a Wednesday night. We were treated to the answering machine greeting multiple times during our meal. Very intrusive. My $40 ribeye was not cooked to order. It was overcooked. I was restricted to scalloped potatoes as the accompanying side dish; however, the wedge salad was quite good. Very odd experience for a "higher-end" restaurant.

The calamari frites were out of this world- and that started a meal that was outdoors and excellent. Everything was delicious- from the filet Oscar and truffle potatoes to the mousse served in a ballon bowl of chocolate.

Excellent Christmas Eve meal with outstanding service. Large served on a large covered patio.
Wasn’t sure what to expect since Polo Grill is under new ownership. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food, the interesting menu and the excellent service. It is a little loud since you are outside near the road but that is small price to pay for the peace of mind during COVID. We will be back!

Our food was very good, but it wasn’t great except for the baked Brie which was out of this world yummy! Our server, on the other hand, was excellent! He was so knowledgeable and very attentive! We would probably return but probably more for appetizers and drinks!

Outdoor dining was very dark and slow. The food was mediocre at best and very expensive on top of everything. I get with covid the restaurants need to make up for the lower volume of customers. And I’m happy to pay extra - but just be good food sand service. Sorry - we won’t be back.

We did the early bird to try the place. Loved the outside seating area. Great atmosphere. Chairs very comfortable. Spacing was very good. Early menu is a bit limited in my book and each of the 6-8 entrees were a different price. I had Chicken Masala ($19.00) and my friend had the filet mignon, ($25.00). Portions were decent. Salad quite small but tasty. We lucked out with the last two pieces of sweet potato pie for dessert which was outstanding. Would go back and eat off the regular menu though prices will be more expensive.

The Polo Grill was a restaurant that you could always rely on for consistent service and food. New ownership has changed things. The inside looks almost the same and the addition of outside seating is very nice. The service we received was very good, but the entrees were not as large as they used to be and some of the combinations were just odd. Overall, everything was good, everyone at our party enjoyed their dinner, but it just wasn't the same as the old Polo Grill.

Our expectations were high due to frequently dining at the former Polo Grill. The new Polo Grill did not meet our expectations. We choose to dine early which qualified us for the early bird special menu. We had dined the early special with the former Polo Grill and our meals were always supurb, as well as our cocktails. The new early bird special did not compare. My husband ordered Chicken Marsala, very small portion of a chicken breast not pounded out or prepared as traditional Marsala. I had steak small but I do not eat large portions, well prepared but the sides were lacking and the portion of vegtables was small, Potato's tastless. The other couple in our party had never dined at the original Polo Grill, they expected the raves I bragged about and were also dissapointed. The prices on the regular menu are quite high end, we are glad we dined early at a lower cost, We will not be back any time soon, unfortunatly. The waitress told us the new owner was also the owner of the Patio Resturant which recently closed down. We dined at the Patio once, we were not happy with the cleanliness, the womans bathroom was disquesting, the service horrible, the food not well prepared. That is part of our decision not to return to the new Polo Grill.
