Comparing to the grand opening 3 isch years ago the food is not as great it was then, at least what I can remember, but still very good and still worth the price. The drinks are exquisite and all service is excellent. If you like "cosy posh & chick" the interior has a lot of that, it's amazing! Treat yourself and your friend/s and book a table. Enjoy the spirit from other guests and have a wonderful night.

We had a delicious evening with 3 fish dishes and salads and veggies. All traditional food and prepping but not basic. Everything was cooked to perfection. It was a busy night but they managed to keep our water glasses full and the cocktails coming.
I recommend The Polo Bar for all occasions.

Ralph Lauren and his visual team always know how to create an overall look which transports you. The high brow comfort foods of NY and Jewish influenced cuisine can be found in this slick well run establishment.

The server was the downfall of our evening with his condesending manner and indifferent service. He would be better suited for a bad diner of years past.

We dined here on our last night in the city. We had a 5:00 reservation because of a show. It was packed within 30 minutes. The restaurant is beautiful- it feels like you've walked into a Polo add and/or store. I was worried about the dress code, but my son and I wore nice jeans and nice tops and there was no issue. Two of us had burgers and one had the filet. Everything was exceptional, and the servings were big. There is a popover/bread served before, and it was excellent. Since this is right off of 5th Ave, be prepared for city pricing. Drinks are very expensive but very creative.

The atmosphere is very nice and branded at every turn with RL. I like the feel and the service overall was formal. Many dining were locals and people from nearby firms so the crowd was quite professional. We had the Polo Bar burger and it was pretty good. I would visit the restaurant again.

I still love this place. The ambience and service make me feel special! I go for special occasions because this is a tough reservation to get and it’s fairly expensive for a cheese burger. But that’s what I love most there. Also must get the cocktail franks to start.

料理や、それに合うお酒のアドバイスを丁寧にしてもらえ良かったです。
平日の17時からの予約ということもあり、

We enjoyed a birthday meal at the polo bar. It’s a very stylish although not ostentatious atmosphere. The decor and presentation are as you would expect and the food very good. Portions are large so be sure you are hungry. Overall I would highly recommend to anyone visiting NYC whether you are a brand devotee or simply want to enjoy a fabulous evening in beautiful surroundings.
