Grabbed a 5:15 table at the last minute on Open Table and were excited to try the Polo Bar. The concierge at the Peninsula had been unable to get us a table. A great experience from start to finish. Warm welcome and were invited to grab a drink at the bar if we didn’t want to go directly to our table. Terrific bartender and atmosphere, and great bar snacks. The dining are downstairs is a cozy Ralph Lauren living room. Food and service were top notch. Cannot wait to return.

Booked in advance for a 50th bday celebration between 3 old friends. Our reservation was a later one (all that was available)...service was very slow from the time we were seated. Our server had a very non- chalant attitude when asked if we could kindly have more water (never refilled ) food was on time although follow up was slow going. We asked to take our food home as it was late and nobody could get through their second course. The wait to receive our billing took far too long and when asked to separate bills she mixed up credit cards and who ordered what. At this point we were done with waiting for her to attend to us so settled up the discrepancies later.
The hostess was more attentive when we left then our server was the entire meal.
Not a great experience.

The staff at The Polo Bar in NYC was incredible.....not stuffy or arrogant, but polite and welcoming in an unexpected way. I had my 6 year-old grandson and his father with me and the interaction and friendliness was unsurpassed....they gifted us with a very memorable and enjoyable evening.

Highly recommended.

I had a surprise 65th birthday celebration for a friend, with her daughter and my daughter. The entire staff was so accommodating and could not have been more helpful! Cocktails, dinner and dessert were all wonderful and the vibrant atmosphere helped make it a fun and memorable night. This was my second time, at the Polo Bar, and I can’t wait to go again!!

Once again the Polo bar has proved to be an excellent place for dining and celebration of my husband’s birthday. One of the few place in NY where you want to come back over and over again. The steak was delicious cooked perfectly. The service very attentive and good choice of champagne by glass.

Fabulous ambiance, great food, attentive staff... even without the multiple celebrity sightings this would be enough to make for a perfect meal. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a great meal and the quintessential NYC experience. Dress is on the more formal side: most of the men are in jackets and slacks, albeit sans ties; the ladies in LBD's or something equally fabulous. Go to see and be seen!

We came from California and booked all of the top NYC restaurants this past week. The Polo Bar was our very favorite for a number of reasons: the food is outstanding and the ambiance is second to none—but by far and away the service ( Christopher) was absolutely the best we’ve had here in NYC or elsewhere in a long time. He was terrific and we all agreed that he made our dinner very special.
