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.

Our waiter was wonderful. His recommendations were spot on. I had the corn beef sandwich which is a restaurant staple. It did not disappoint. The desserts were a meal highlight. The salted Carmel sundae was a sophisticated version of a childhood favorite. Delicious!!!

Went for our wedding anniversary. Had a great, cozy table and very nice waiter. Best shrimp cocktail ever! Great drinks, nice meal and ended up with sharing the delicious ice cream sundae. A very special meal.

Took my mom there for Mother's Day. She, and I, have been wearing mostly Ralph Lauren for years. This was our first visit. Extraordinary from the moment you enter. Service was great. Food awesome. I had the burger and my mom the veggie burger. Both delicious. My burger cooked perfectly at medium. Will definitely be back!

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.

We had a 10 pm reservation. We did not get seated until almost an hour later. It seemed as though, other people were getting seated before us as well. This was the only bad experience

The Polo Bar will soon celebrate its third birthday. While this was our first visit, we hope it achieves the same fame as Le Cote Basque, one of NYC’s best restaurants, that was previously located on the same site. We enjoyed martinis, shrimp cocktail, filet mignonette, and salmon. It was perfect. Our server was Kristi, and she is a true professional. Despite its location on 55th Ave, we had no trouble getting to a Broadway musical at 44th on time. BRAVO, Polo !!

The food, drinks and ambiance were amazing at Polo Bar! We did however, have some trouble getting seated. We had a 9:30 reservation and after checking 4 times with the hostess they finally seated us at 10:10, 40 minutes after our intended reservation. Once we were seated the food and service were wonderful, and we were given a complimentary Reuben sandwich - yum!

Service staff is impeccable and food very enjoyable. We were made feel very welcome from the minute we arrived until we left. The steak was the best my husband had ever had in a restaurant setting. I would highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who likes a good atmosphere, great service and very well prepared and presented food.

The Polo Bar is now our 'must visit' restaurant in New York. Great pre-theatre dining experience with impeccable service and intriguing menu. Roasted beet salad with chèvre and brick chicken were incomparable, as well as a superb Old Fashioned in a lead crystal glass befitting the occasion. Loved it!

Decor lives up to the brand, the food exceeds expectations. But the hospitality is where Polo Bar falls flat. There are plenty of restaurants of equal or greater caliber (and expense) to choose from in NYC who will provide you the accommodating experience you deserve - most will even let you have a drink at the bar before dinner at your own pace

Although it is a very difficult table to get, it is worth it.

Such pleasant staff, gracious service and so beautiful. The popovers alone make it worthwhile. Chicken is superb as is the burger.
A little overpriced but who cares.

Compared to other NYC fine dining the prices were higher than average with no special perk at the end of the meal. If I am going to pay $70 for a steak then I want a chocolate or some surprise at the end of my meal.
