Waiter came to our table, no joke over 25 times. It was too much. After every sip of water he would refill our glass. He was very nice, but interrupted us so many times to see if we were ok, that we couldn't hold a conversation. It became stressful

My brother-in-law is 85. He's surprisingly spry but uses a walker and needs oxygen and a catheter. The wait staff couldn't possibly have been better or more accommodating. From what I could see, they seemed equally accommodating to everyone, at all the tables in the dining room. Granted, they weren't overwhelmed for an early lunch on Friday, but still ... "attentive" and "pleasant" are not strong enough words to describe the level of service everyone seemed to be getting. The food was pretty good too, but the service was beyond outstanding!

Disappointed. My husband and I ordered chicken which, although tasty, was overdone. Our friend ordered salmon and had the same feeling that although tasty it was a little overdone. Service was friendly and attentive. However, it took awhile for our food to arrive.

Service was excellent. Staff did everything to accommodate us. Appetizers with very good , and my wife's entre, A pork special, was excellent. Sides were good, but nothing special.
As to the steak,I sent one back, too much gristle. The waiter and the house manager were both very apologetic and suggested I replace it with a different cut. Unfortunately , the replacement, while free of gristle, was tough. Very disappointing considering this is a steakhouse.

the servers were friendly , informative and excellent.
the food was mediocre. For the price, it should have been exceptional.
the restaurant is lovely.
We were 9 people celebrating a wedding. Except for the food, it was perfect.
We still had a good time

Went to Polo for brunch with another couple. Celebrating our birthdays. Food was excellent, with many choices. Would recommend this place. Lovely atmosphere and decor. Staff was quite attentive. Although , our waiter dissappeared for a time which made it necessary to ask another waiter to help us.

We went to the Sunday Brunch; while the food was good (not great), we found that there really wasn't anything for kids, the service was not very good (although I think it was our waiter specifically) and the value of the food for the price paid was horrible. This brunch was way overpriced.

Our waiter, Michael, was terrific. The food was terrific overall. I do have to say that the serving size of the salmon was pathetic. That said - It was a really nice experience and the staff made the difference. Highly recommended but Stay away from ordering salmon.

Celebrating my daughter-in-laws promotion, this was the perfect spot to enjoy a fabulous meal. Besides excellent food, the service is unparalleled. We were not rushed at all, but be sure to save some room for the desserts. Definitely intend on going back soon.

I've been to Polo many times. This Saturday night service was certainly off from start to finish.
Considering the dining room was almost empty for a Saturday night the service should have certainly been much better.

My husband and I celebrated our 45 wedding anniversary at the restaurant and had a very delicious and special dinner. The food was wonderful and the service was impeccable. It was a perfect place to share a special occasion.

Shellfish tower tasted like it was frozen or made well in advance - took our server 20 minutes to open a hundred dollar bottle of wine. Steak was just ok- the check for five people was hundreds of dollars but the food and service was what you would expect in a fast food restaurant. Go elsewhere for fine dining
Restaurant Week Experience
The restaurant week promotion offered by Polo at the Garden City Hotel was overall very good. The menu choices were OK, but it is beyond my understanding why a substitution is not allowed (mashed potato instead of risotto) - this can and should be easily be accommodated by an establishment like the Garden City Hotel. We do not hold this against the waiter (who we have had before, and who is excellent). Clearly this restriction comes from the manager of the restaurant (or, perhaps more likely, the accountant).
Great Celebration Restaurant
My daughter and I went here to celebrate her birthday during Long Island Restaurant Week. We enjoyed the biscuits, which came with the meal. We also enjoyed the lobster bisque, salmon with diced tomatoes and red lentils, and a big portion of vanilla creme brulee.
