Polo Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
I would not recommend this place to anyone. The food was very low quality, more like what you would get at Applebee's or Outback and maybe double or more the price. The wait staff, while friendly were extremely slow and the place was not that busy. While more than 50% empty, we were seated by the front entrance. the doors to the restaurant are always wide open and are close to the hotel entrance, so anytime someone brings luggage into the hotel we were hit with very cold air. Too cold to be comfortable and our food turned cold too fast. Stay away!
Bone-in Ribeye and Mac n Cheese was delicious and there was a good drink selection as well. We were seated near a party room which got a little loud but the waiters responded well to our request to keep the party room door closed. Overall, the service was excellent. They also gave us an extra special dessert since we were celebrating our anniversary. Nice bonus that it is in the Garden City Hotel which also provides great valet service and treated us as if we were hotel guests.
No complaints at all. Good food, good service and the price was fair. Went to celebrate a birthday. Just 2 people. Appetizer salads were delicious. Dessert was fantastic. Very happy we made this choice. One small thing, at some point, they started pumping in loud dance club music, which was odd considering the age of the crowd. While annoying, it wasn't a big deal.
Went with 2 friends for restaurant week. The menu could have had more choices. The presentation was very good as well as taste. Our martinis (French) were terrible....so important to have a seasoned bartender. Comfortable table & chair however, the restaurant was very cold. We asked them to turn down the air but don't think it ever was.
Took my wife there for birthday, our first time. Very impressed, waite staff was awesome, food was excellent. Would definitely return for celebrate a special occasion. Waiter recommended steak special, it was great, wife had lamb chops super tasty and tender, lemon meringue was super! Enjoy!
The restaurant was very noisy. Several large parties were being held in the dining area. I was told this is a common now. Management was very unapologetic. The manager told me, "At the end of the day, we just need to fill the tables." I was told we couldn't have high tea because they had a limited number of teacups. So although tables were available in the tea room, we had to eat in the steakhouse. The overall quality has declined. This used to be a great place for dining with an excellent ambience and good service. This is no longer the case.
always amazing but a little noisy this visit. Their steak is perfection; so tender and perfectly cooked and seasoned. My husband decided to try the truffle fries instead of mashed potatoes this visit and declared them the best he has ever tasted. Kale lollipops were great too. We enjoyed spinach and asparagus on past vists; also delicious. They always have wonderful wine selections and make good recommendations for pairings. The white we tried with our tasty lobster bisque went so well. The cabernet with the porterhouse for 2 was just what we like. It is always a treat to eat here. Service is as terrific as the food. $$$ but worth it.
Always a wonderful experience when dining at Polo Steakhouse. The wait staff is attentive, extremely helpful and really adds to the overall dining experience. The menu offers lots of great choices and the Prix Fixe is a fantastic deal. Love going here with my husband, friends...just a nice night out!
Waited at least 15 minutes before anyone came with menus. After ordering apps, it took over 45 minutes for them to arrive. The quarter inch hunks of bacon on my salad were only barely cooked resulting in quarter inch hunks of fat. Three out of six steaks were not cooked as ordered. One over cooked and two under cooked. The waiter talked me in the dry aged bone in strip. It was honestly the worst piece of meat I ever had. I had to send it back. There was so much fat and gristle. We had enough so we passed on dessert. Terrible experience. Would not recommend and will never go back.
Was disappointed to find out that not all steaks on the menu are aged, despite a printed statement on the menu. Ordered bone-in strip steak, which was one of the offerings that are aged, but it was not cooked as ordered, wasn't very tender and had gristle. The baked clams appetizer were poorly prepared and not fully freed from the shell. In general, overpriced.
we love to dine here as the room is lovely, food is great and the service is outstanding. There was a lobster special which we had in addition to the prix fixe. First time we tried something different from porterhouse for 2; fabulous. The wine and drinks are wonderful and we like the guidance of the staff in choosing pairings for appetizers and entrees. We had a wonderful chenin blanc with our lobster and a terrific zinfandel with our beef entrée. The waiter, not our server who was great too, stopped by to assist in these choices was right on target and we appreciated the input. Every time we eat here we experience perfection.
