We came for our 7th wedding anniversary and could not have made a better choice. The food was excellent and the sommelier recommended a fantastic blend. I had the Polo Burger and my husband had the ribeye; both meals were amazing! The service was exceptional as we didn't need to ask for a thing and to top it off, they brought out a complimentary espresso ice cream dessert for us. The waitstaff anticipated any requests and brought them before we could ask. Also, we came about thirty minutes early and had a drink in the bar area. We received great service there as well. They brought us fried olive, nuts and homemade potato chips. I can't wait to come back!

Everything was delicious, especially the cocktails, and the restaurant is beautifully elegant in traditional “club” style. At the end of the meal, they— unprompted— brought our guest of honor (our new graduate) a piece of cake with a little candle, which was a lovely surprise. My only complaint was that the service was a little slow, and not in the “give the meal time to unfold” way, more like the staff was overwhelmed and not available. Nonetheless, we had a great meal and evening and we will gladly return.

This was my second early evening dinner at the Polo Bar. The restaurant looks as you might imagine it would...warm wood, rich saddle leather seating and
equestrian prints and artwork on the walls. The staff is professional and accommodating. The menu is very much about comfort food. Burgers, steak and a few seafood offerings are the mainstays. On my first visit I had the halibut entree, which did not disappoint. The fish was well prepared and delicious. On my second visit, I felt that I wanted to taste their famous burgers. I ordered a special burger, the St. Germaine, and my husband ordered the classic burger, which is always on the menu. We cut them in half so that we could sample each. The St. Germaine won, but both were excellent. We each enjoyed a glass of Grenache, which was a great accompaniment. If you like coffee ice cream, by all means order this one. It was by far the best I have ever had.

Food was absolutely fine but the service not so. I felt ignored and staff very artificial. I asked to see the desert menu but instead was given the check. No one escorted me out or opened the doors. I expected more, being used to the superb service I get at similar level restaurants in London.

Aside from the fact that the waiter threw out my leftovers ( manager did come over and apologized several times and comped my meal) , it was a nice evening. Everyone great from the time you walk in until the time you leave. We were not rushed either when we ordered another drink after dinner was done.

Always great experience at this restaurant - food and service! However, we had to wait a little while to order our drinks and asked for our server a couple of times. In the end, we got double charged on our bill, that I only found out the next day on my CC statement, which is never a pleasant surprise.

I went there with my mom on Mother’s Day for lunch. Despite the amazing food and interior deco, the staff was very professional and calm. We accidentally broke a glass and spilled water all over the table and the floor in the beginning. Several servers immediately came over and asked if we were okay. Within the next 5 minutes, they cleaned up the mess, set up the entire table all over again, and sent us a new basket of bread and butter.

We ordered a lemon poached lobster salad (Mother’s Day special), a corn beef sandwich, and a French toast to share. The lobster was a bit over cooked and the portion was too small for a $35 dish. However, the flavor was refreshing and I liked that it was paired with poached green and white asparagus. The corn beef and French toast were lovely. The only thing could be improved was the texture of the corn beef could be softer.

My favorite part of the lunch is my cocktail - British Garden. The gin ratio was on-point, and it had just the right acidity to cut down the fatty feeling given by the main courses.

Overall the experience was very pleasant.
