wouldn't be surprised if the fries had been frozen. the bacon on the hamburger was flat, and the burger really had no mouth watering memories.

Also, do not sit in the "back room". defiantely for out of towners:)

This was my first trip to the Polo bar after a three decade relationship with the Polo brand. The restaurant was true to the brand and the quality of the food was a special surprise. Totally enjoyed myself. we did have an early reservation and when out meal was done did feel a little rushed to be gone from our table---we get that there were reservations waiting, but a gentler nudge would have been nice.

Me and my daughters had dinner there this week and loved it. There is someone at the door that assures that you have a confirmed reservation or else I don't think that they just let people in. The menu was great, the cocktails were delicious and overall ambience was amazing. Service was attentive but not overly friendly. The wine by the glass that was suggested was $42 a glass so I am glad that I looked at the menu and saw the price before just agreeing to the suggestion. The least expensive one was I believe $24 a glass. This is not a place to go if you are on a budget. Still, I highly recommend it.

I cannot express enough how great of a place this was. It was my first time to New York and The Polo Bar was one of my top places to see/eat at. We had reservations, which the staff was well aware of as they made it feel as if they knew me. We were seated in the bar area as we waited for our table, where our drink order was taken and fresh, hot snacks were given. The hostess took us down to our table where the bartender then brought our cocktails (the margarita was great). We started with the pigs in a blanket & the caviar and fingerling potatoes- both were AMAZING. It was also my first experience with caviar- not a bad one at all. I then had the 10 oz. filet which was cooked perfectly to medium rare with a crispy outside with the peppercorn sauce on the side which was great (I also tasted the creamy horseradish which was delicious as well). The filet was accompanied with onion rings that were the best I have ever had that complimented the steak well. We ordered a side of the roasted mushrooms and mashed potatoes. The mushrooms were different, more of a crisp texture, but the flavor was there. The mashed potatoes melted in your mouth. We ended with The Polo Bar Brownie that was hot, moist, and topped with delicious vanilla ice cream and a side of hot fudge for you to do your own pouring. With our brownie we enjoyed a glass of the Graham's 20 Year Tawny that was of course, amazing. The staff was respectful, attentive, & friendly. I cannot say one negative comment on this place besides it being in New York while I live in Texas.

Outstanding in almost every way. Food was perfectly prepared and service was spot on. The staff was warm and welcoming. Fortunately we had a corner booth given how crowded the seating was. Given the difficulty in getting the required reservation, it felt they were trying to maximize the dining room space the best they could. We loved the NY vibe. RL polo photos hanging on every wall and the RL monogrammed on nearly everything reminded us where we were in a classy way. Overall it was a memorable experience and highly recommend.
