The Polo Bar Restaurant lived up to it’s reputation for my wife and me. It was an A+ dining and decor experience, and it made a special night out extra special for us. The staff was welcoming, polished and exceptional in every detail too. Thanks again go to everybody at the Polo Bar!

The reasoning for the 2 star service is because I think it was so difficult to take 10 persons that wanted to book tables close to each other. We had to end up booking 3 separate reservation, because otherwise we would have to sit in a private room and order a fixed menu....When we got ot he restaurant we could see that you definetly had the option to sit us together without a problem ( we booked a long time ahead of our arrival and requested this early on), but made such a big deal out of it and set us separately. It was the booking agent that ruined this review for your service rating.

The waiter and the managers on duty were exceptional and fixed it for us that we could sit closer to each other. The waiters were excellent! The management was understanding after we arrived..

Ok, to have the "posh" factor, but should be more accomodating for your customers.

Ralph Lauren fan? Walk in NOT knowing it is his restaurant and you'd say, "This is what a POLO restaurant would be if it were to exist". Perfectly appointed, staff clean and starched, knowledgable and at the ready. Art, seating, music, lighting-each deliver. The sum-perfection. Food across interest and taste levels, strong meat presence but plenty of veggies and lighter fare. Great for bight after a show or a drink to breathe in the energy imbued. Full meal for those seeking-and a hot dog or burger to savor amidst the Dover sole, butternut squash soup, and full-on course options. GO. If you can get in. And celebrate you got the table.

🍔 came out nicely looking but when i bit into it the caramelized onions was burnt to a crisp. Told my waiter about it & all he did was give me a dessert 🧁 on the house which i didn’t even eat because I don’t like coconut 🥥 instead he should’ve asked me what i was my preference, the waiter was good don’t get me wrong he just did too much

The tables never seem to be ready when you have you reservation but they have service running like a well oiled machine. Definitely more of a comfort food spot ( The Burger, pigs in a blanket). The decor is great! Wish they had more options of wine by the glass.

My son and I enjoyed our evening. Service was great. I had the corned beef sandwich, it was SO good! A bit overpriced, but expected that when in NYC. The popovers they bring before the meal were amazing! We also had the cheesecake with carmelized bananas, yum!

The atmosphere is great, the service was great. You feel as is you have your own butler, the staff is very friendly. Inside decor is beautiful, you would expect nothing less from the Ralph Lauren Polo bar.
I have the fish special, it was okay, it was a little bland. The calamari and zucchini was excellent. I will probably try the burger next time, as I saw numerous of those coming out to tables all around us.
I would come here again, it’s a beautiful classy restaurant.

All the staff were able to eat pleasantly with wonderful correspondence.The interior was very trendy and wonderful, but I enjoyed my meal while relaxing without feeling nervous.
Corned beef sandwich is tasty without eating. The amount is too much to eat. The soup was also delicious! Salmon was asked how to bake. It was very soft and tasty. Garnished vegetables are exquisite hardness.
It became good memories of New York.

I’m guessing they were going for “clubby” and succeeded - completely. We loved every second - the food was terrific, the wine list, exceptional, the service - out of the park.

We were so excited to have dinner at the Polo Bar and we planned this trip a year ago. I read the reviews prior to dining and they all said the service was amazing. Unfortunately, I thought the food and service was below standards. We ordered the crab salad...and it was awful probably the worst salad I've ever had. We were told the burger was the best, so we ordered it! The burger was also awful... The only thing we enjoyed were the drinks. Disappointed to say the least :(
