Polo Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I have always enjoyed dining at the Polo Steakhouse. Set within the exquisite surroundings of the Garden City Hotel, the experience is nothing short of satisfying and enjoyable. The food is delectable and the service makes you feel like royalty, yet the atmosphere never comes across as being up-tight or snooty. Priced appropriately for the desired affect, while the Polo Steakhouse may not be an every other night dining excursion, it most certainly provides the fine dining experience one might want for a special occasion, romantic date, family get-together, or otherwise above average dining experience. We highly recommend that you try this restaurant out!
My son and I were in Hempstead visiting colleges and we heard from a mutual friend about Polo steakhouse. We arrived at the hotel and the place was warm and welcoming. We go to the Polo steakhouse and we are seated immidieatly (there were only 3 tables seated), the server comes over and takes our drinks, this is where the disasters start. For starters, he brings me a glass of Santa Margherita white wine instead of a Sunset margherita (the cocktail of the house), I tell him my actual order yet he comes back with a plain margherita on the rocks. My son and I both got the lobster bisque, which was more cream than lobster. Then he brings us the porterhouse for 2 (recommended by our server) and it was the worst peace of beef we've ever had. We ordered medium rare and the filet side came well done. The maîtres came over and didn't say anything but we'll see what we can do and she was going to offer us another dinner (instead of paying for this one). Finally, my cocktail arrived when everything was done. At the end, our meal came to 70$ with only the bisque and our cocktails. I don't see how the service was so bad minus the fact that there were only 3 tables seated.
This is a great steakhouse and lounge. Free, friendly valet parking. Terrific atmosphere and decor. Excellent service. And the food is terrific. Has the dry-aged rib eye which might have been one of the best steaks I've ever had rivaling Del Frisco's and other great steakhouses in Manhattan. And the sunset margarita packs a strong lunch. Highly recommended.
We had dinner here on a Friday night. The service is great, very attentive. My husband had the filet mignon which he loved. I had the swordfish, it was ok but I wouldn't order it again. Be aware that it is al a carte and you literally only get a steak on a plate. You have to order sides. That being said, it was a lovely restaurant and I highly recommend going to lounge next to it for after dinner drink and live piano music
Had an excellent birthday dinner for my wife at the GCH. Food was beautifully prepared with some very nice extras like mini "biscuit" to start. Service was friendly and attentive, not hovering, and helpful with recommendations. Very comfortable atmosphere (helped by the fact we were there on a slow Monday)
Unfortunately I was rather disappointed in the Sunday brunch. Hubby and I went for our wedding anniversary and neither of us was very impressed. For brunch to cost $190 for 2 people, I expect better. There was a nice selection of fresh seafood, but no crab claws as advertised, the cold lobster was overcooked and chewy. The rest of the items were pretty much the same as you would get at any brunch, with the exception of the sushi platters. The sushi was excellent, considering it was a buffet I was a bit hesitant but the spicy crab did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and attentive and the décor was nice, but in my opinion there are other places that are just as good. I expected more from the Garden city hotel.
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.
