We shall avoid a holiday next time.

We just wanted a quiet New Year's eve dinner and decided to dine at Polpo because we hadn't been there in over a year. The food was delicious as usual, the service was not up to par maybe due to the holiday, but the big problem was that we were rushed through dinner and I think it was one of... read more

This is our third visit to Polpo and it was sublime as on the past visits. Appetizers included smoked salmon, iceberg wedge and beet salad which were all 10/10. Entrees were grilled polpo, salmon, linguine with clam sauce and veal chop which were all expertly prepared. Service was impeccable. We sat in the bar area next to the piano and... More

Always a good meal and you need reservations as a result. Have enjoyed meals with friends and clients here. It always a contender if I am looking for a high end meal.

Polpo is the finest Italian restaurant, and matches the service, quality and ambience of any Manhattan restaurant.

Polpo food is OK but pricey. However, the service is simply rude, vulgar and insulting. It is simply the worst I have ever experienced. I would recommend that this is a place to be avoided.

although the food was very good, the service was indifferent, rushed, and definitely not what one expects in a upscale restaurant. we were asked to order as soon as we were seated, had to ask for the wine to be poured, and had our check delivered with our coffee, unasked.

Wow where to begin. The customer is wrong, the management is rude and they lied to us twice. The food was good for 3 out of 4 of us. We had a table of four on Saturday night and were expecting to spend our usual $400. Our waiter Eddy was very attentive. However, WE WILL NEVER GO BACK. We ordered... More

Been to this restaurant at least 5 times over the course of the last few years and always had a good experience. This time around it was not as great as before. We were sat in the side room, not in the main room where you really want to be as you get to hear the piano player and the... More

Polpo is my family's favorite restaurant to meet when all of us come home for the holidays. For appetizers I recommend the Polpo (the Grilled Octopus) with baked beans - really superb. Also the Baby Eggplant Napolean - very fine. The sausage & polenta is now off the menu but if you ask, they will make it for you. That... More
