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.

Service, ambiance, food all great. They pushed a table up really close to ours though, and we were bumping into each other all meal. Difficult to fully enjoy the meal when you can’t move. But minus that, would recommend.

What a wonderful experience. A beautiful bar area where we enjoyed a pre-dinner Cosmopolitan with wonderful canape treats. When moving to our table we proceeded downstairs and found a further room that was also beautifully decorated and provided a wonderful ‘club-like’ ambience, just as we hoped. The menu was all very appealing but our chosen dishes (oysters, shrimp salad, then steak) were presented beautifully and tasted fabulous. The service was sleek and attentive. Whilst our heads were pondering dessert, our stomachs could not join in..! An excellent evening meal. We will be back.

Stylish NYC old school waspy vibe, with exceptional (good looking) staff. Loved it apart from the noise level downstairs. Can’t wait to return and install myself at the bar for a lost afternoon.

We liked the restaurant and the ambiance but I thought the $33 margarita was a bit much. The waiter was clearly trying to sell that drink (and get more tip) because it was a "special". You need to disclose a $33 drink price - not everyone is on an expense account.

Beautiful atmosphere and attentive service. The room is large but still intimate, with seating arranged so that no table is on top of another. Noise level and dinner music are excellent. Food is good not great. The real value is in the room and ambiance. The classic wood decor and fragrant smells throughout the restaurant create a lush feel. Great dining experience
