I went twice during my visit the service is excellent and the fries are amazing although on both occasions they arrived luke warm but we asked for a replacement and the next ones were superb. I wouldn’t go for anything on the specials menu - I did this on the second occasion but it wasn’t anywhere near as good as my main the first time. The restaurant is elegant and it’s a really good atmosphere with lots of locals. I highly recommend it.

Our server was excellent. But the hostess was annoying as we requested to be seated in middle section and since our reservation was at 5:30, it would have been easy for her to hold a table there.
She told me I should have come at 5 if I wanted that request? My reservation given to me by Polo /open table was 5:30!
Why would I come at 5:00 .
I think they have great servers but some of their hostesses just our inexperienced or have attitude.

A fabulous experience and one worth making the trip over from the UK for . Very difficult to get a table but once you do it doesn’t disappoint. The service is impeccable and the food was amazing . Very friendly waiting staff and we found Nick very knowledgeable.
We will definitely be returning when we are back in NYC

The Polo Bar is always a favorite spot for dinner when I’m in NYC.
Service and Food is always consistent
My only call out is that, if we’re going to maintain the elevated experience, and we’re asked for Jacket Preferred, then I don’t know why so many people were in T-Shirts and Shorts, and other inappropriate clothing choices.

You would have a better chance to landing a private audience with the Pope, than to score a reservation. When you’re called to confirm your reservation, maybe people should be reminded what the dress code policy is?????

Just my opinion.......

Classic dining experience. Only very early or very late reservations are available online however once we arrived a little past 5:30 we enjoyed a leisurely drink in the parlor followed by a delicious unhurried meal in the dining room downstairs. The signature burger was done perfectly and two in our party said that the Sweet Pea & Ricotta Ravioli were different and wonderful.

Grabbed a 5:15 table at the last minute on Open Table and were excited to try the Polo Bar. The concierge at the Peninsula had been unable to get us a table. A great experience from start to finish. Warm welcome and were invited to grab a drink at the bar if we didn’t want to go directly to our table. Terrific bartender and atmosphere, and great bar snacks. The dining are downstairs is a cozy Ralph Lauren living room. Food and service were top notch. Cannot wait to return.

Booked in advance for a 50th bday celebration between 3 old friends. Our reservation was a later one (all that was available)...service was very slow from the time we were seated. Our server had a very non- chalant attitude when asked if we could kindly have more water (never refilled ) food was on time although follow up was slow going. We asked to take our food home as it was late and nobody could get through their second course. The wait to receive our billing took far too long and when asked to separate bills she mixed up credit cards and who ordered what. At this point we were done with waiting for her to attend to us so settled up the discrepancies later.
The hostess was more attentive when we left then our server was the entire meal.
Not a great experience.
