This was not my first visit to the restaurant but it was a was a very special occasion, as we were celebrating my son’s birthday. We had an 18-old month baby with us and the staff members were very accommodating to this young guess. They provide excellent service, delicious food and a welcoming atmosphere for us. I am looking forward... More

Food just not that good...average at best. Draught beer was flat...servers act as if your are lucky to be eating there...expensive as well...with all the great new places in Westchester and CT, why bother with this dinosaur?

We went with another couple and once again found the service just plain sad. The manager is as arrogant as I have seen. Even though the food can be good at times. It is so not worth the stress or aggravation. It's incredible how waiters can tolerate the manager. This is the third time in a year. The first time... More

Greenwich? Seriously? Impatient waiters, OK food, sort of musty feel to the place. Colleague lunches consistently embarrassing due to creepy waiters. Weird crowd. Edible food, nothing special. The car valet is great...

Just left there and would never go back. Overpriced fast food at best. Had a 7:30 reservation and were done by 8:15 even when we told them to slow it down. A they care about is turning over tables. Quality of food no better than your Mom and Pop pizzeria. Don't waste your money!

Arrogant host that reduces the attractiveness of going to Polpo when he is there. Will not seat you for drinks even with an appetizer when the dining room is empty and bar is full! Music is nice but lots of drunken dancing people when we were there last. Bar tenders are great and helpful and attentive along with a good... More

Cheerful & friendly sports bar. Busy in its own right. This is the old school kind of Italian restaurant...with a captain and waiters. Very attentive service staff. Several small alcoves are nice for quieter conversations. You will get better service if you make a restaurant reservation. They are usually quite busy Thursday through Sunday. A live - but not loud... More

At these prices they should have filmed " THE WOLF OF WALL STREET" with Leonardo Dicapria throwing $100. dollar bills around. The show starts at the parking lot, Ferraries, McClarin, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Astin Martin and yes my Mercedes that will be parked all the way at the rear of the lot. Great bar scean. The night we were there... More
