We always save the Polo Bar for our last night in the City! It never disappoints. The wait staff is always so respectful and friendly. The food was divine. And, as always, it’s a great place to people watch. Can’t wait to return!

I cannot recommend the Polo Bar enough. My boyfriend and I (not famous in any way) happened to dine at the Polo Bar the same night as a number of big name celebrities. There was absolutely no fuss and we felt equally as important and valued to our servers as anyone else in the restaurant. Food was also divine, I highly recommend the chocolate cake :) Thank you, Polo Bar, for a terrific experience.

Very nice location, very good burger with lots of fries. The cheesecake tastes great and comes with fresh strawberries. Pricing is pretty reasonable. Service pays good attention and is very handsome. A nice place, especially for poloplayers.

Food wasn't that great but worth it to visit once
I didn't really like the server who had kinda rude attitude (He was keep trying to make me order fancier meal options..)

this place is a hoot! i have always wanted to go, but being there made me wish i was straight edge...
can't believe that drinks can be over $30! however, the decor and the popovers help provide a bit more value to an otherwise fun and delicious, yet overpriced, whitebread new york experience.

I was very disappointed to say the least about my dinner here. The atmosphere was disappointing and I couldn't believe that the family sitting in front of me had their kid playing video game on his iPad at the dinner table. It was horrible and the couple sitting beside me was weird, anytime they coughed she kept apologizing that they didn't have any disease or nothing, it wasn't like I said anything to them. The food wasn't great, only the cocktail was good. Overall, based that you had to have a reservation to get in here and then you see this, it's appalling. Places that don't require such a strict reservation policy have better class of people as patrons than this place. I wouldn't go back or recommend it.

For such an “affluent” Resturant, the guy who works at the reservation switchboard is of very low quality and standard and has no etiquette. Just his attitude and horrible telephone skills are enough to turn you off this place altogether.
I would pass on this Resturant as there are far better quality places with amazing friendly staff who have people skills training. Def would not go back here!

Great evening with friends. Service was perfect. Bar and wait staff were welcoming and front of house was super accommodating when we were a tad late.
Food quality is excellent. And those bar snacks, delicious.

Service was excellent, Michael was the best waiter we’ve had in the several times we’ve visited here. Food was really good and fairly good choices, they’ll help if you need to tailor a menu item for specific reasons. Nice cocktail options, and some varied gin selections.

Start at the beautiful bar on the main floor. Although expensive, the drink are creative and accompanied by a trio of delicious snacks. Arrive at least 30 minutes before your dinner reservation to relax and enjoy the experience. Move downstairs for an old school dinner. The staff will be happy to split dishes in the kitchen. The corned beef sandwich and burgers are exceptional. It is a great place for a meal with friends and family.

While the room is warm, decor nicely done, & tables well-spaced, the food was very disappointing. The popovers were delicious, but after one, we were not offered a 2nd, & without realizing it, our bread plates were removed. We ordered what we were told were"must-haves" --Shrimp Cocktail, Franks in Blankets, Corned Beef sandwich, Roasted Cauliflower, & none we agreed, had any distinctive flavor. The experience for people around us, seemed to be focused on what celebrity might walk into the room.
