Polo Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
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.
Very disappointed!We went for an anniversary dinner.Although the service was excellent, there are serious issues with the kitchen.I ordered the Friday surf and turf w steak medium.It came out in about 30 min.COLD and cooked RARE.The "lobster" tail was the smallest I have ever seen, more like a prawn cut in half.Also luke warm at best and flavorless.Caesar salad was good tho.They serve some kind of mealy biscuit before dinner, no bread.Horribly amateurish.Creme brulee was way over carmelized.This is an overpriced and underperforming rip off.
Went for our anniversary dinner. Place was decorated nicely for holidays. Very quiet as it was night after Christmas and a Monday. Fire alarm went off, we were told it was a false alarm, even though there was a burning smell and lights still flashing for most of dinner. Manager came over to apologize, however didn't offer even a complimentary cocktail on a $200 bill? Porterhouse for two ordered medium was basically well done. Sides and appetizers were better, but not reflective of price. Nice setting and friendly staff however. Didn't voice complaints that night. Wanted to escape the smell and haze of the dining room.
went with my elderly aunt for a pre-christmas dinner......food was great ....nice ambiance.....very friendly waiter who helped my aunt throughout the meal......nice menu....really ewnjoyed the swordfish.....was a bit crowded with large holiday parties but was a very good dining experience........reservations recommended
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.
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.
