Always fun, but be alert

We love going to Polpo! Always try to sit in room with bar and piano, it's like being at a party. The service has always been courteous and attentive, but the food can be inconsistent. Dover Sole, my favorite, is pricy, but can be the most heavenly dish you've ever tasted. If it's fresh, be... read more

It's becoming our "gathering" spot for our annual trip to the Greenwich Concours d'Élégance. The atmosphere, service and food are second to none. The nightlife there is pretty hopping too, with a piano bar inside that's always buzzing once the music starts! Not cheap, but lots of fun!

We had dinner here and were very disappointed: If you sit outside, you occassionally enjoy the smell of garbage when the wind changes direction. In addition, the outside area is next to the valet parking drop off/ pick up and the parking lot isn't big enough -- the valets are constantly turning cars around / driving in and out of... More

I would not recommend this restaurant! They do not respect reservations that are made even weeks in advance. My daughter called two weeks in advanced for a Saturday night and confirmed two days in advance for a birthday celebration. When we arrived at the Polpo, they were not at all pleasant and seemed to have over-booked for the evening. When... More

Went with my daughter and her husband for mid-week dinner. The restaurant was not crowded, but we were not alone. As we walked in we were greeted by a pile of lobsters on ice, but most of them looked totally dead. I ordered the rabbit casserole, and it was delicious. I had to struggle with numerous small, sharp, dangerous bone... More

We went to Polpo for New Year's Eve. The meal was outrageous. No need to comment on which dish etc. etc. was good. You need to go to Polpo. It is fantastic, and the best Italian between Manhattan and Boston.

We dined it Polpo a few times over a few years and it was always good, however this time we were disappointed - my duck was way overcooked. I am a slow eater, but that's not an excuse to miscalculate timing and bring dry charred meal. The service was good and the ambiance was nice too, but I'm not in... More

We have been here before with friends and it was the same then. You drive up and if you have a Ferrari or other 150k+ car they keep it up front for you. If you give the guy a tip before they keep your car in the lot behind the restaurant. If not, they take off with your car and... More

We have been here a few times. We don't go often because it gets pricey. You have to spend $70 for a bottle of Proseco! You can buy the bottle for $10. I don't mind restaurants marking up wine but that is ridiculous. Service is spotty. When im spending this much, a I expect more.
