Our aunt and uncle gifted us a gift card for dinner at Polpo. We had eaten there last summer and it was excellent. It wasn't excellent this time. We ordered our food with a few requests. When the food came, the requests were ignored. All wrong. When they took one of the dishes back to the kitchen they came back with a ball of angel hair with butter and with literally 10 pcs. of crabmeat and 3-4 shrimp - $52. The "sauce" was supposed to be white wine sauce. We also noticed a credit card surcharge of $4.50 on our bill for using a card (a gift card from their restaurant). Unbelievable! I certainly don't mind paying for food when it is worth it but this was pathetic. Everything about this place was/is wrong. We will never go back and we will be sharing our experience with our relatives and friends who have summer homes in Avalon not to waste their money.

Heaters were on and it was a warm night. But the support staff were wonderful and the food delicious. Sometimes a waiter just is tired and needs a night off! I get it...

We were very happy about this because our grandmom is in her 80s and with covid ramping back up we wanted to ensure she had a buffer zone from us. Thank you thank you thank you for allowing us the piece of mind. Food was delicious as always and the service excellent. Will remain our top choice while in Avalon all season.

The only thing that threw us was they now charge a 3.5% surcharge if you use a credit card. I was there a few weeks ago and there was no surcharge. They don’t even tell you they just handed us the bill and there it was.
