I am a pre-op liver transplant patient with very specific diet restrictions. My life can be very difficult due to my condition. Polo always goes above and beyond the call of duty to make my day not only bearable but uplifting. I recommend this establishment as a MUST VISIT. I have been in Chicago less than a year and even...

Dave and his Staff are all wonderful people. We only got to stay for two nights, but we enjoyed every second of it. Our Sox Suite was big and comfortable for all 5 of us. The breakfasts were out of this world. We highly recommend this place and the medallions as well as the omelets! Cannot wait to come back!

Our annual benefit “Jazzin’ to Feed” wouldn’t be the same without the great food and service that Polo Café provides. Polo café served an outstanding New Orleans cuisine at this year’s benefit. Many of our guests can’t stop talking about how great and authentic the food was. Here is a quote from one of the guests, “The food provided by... More

The food is great. All cooked to order. Very inventive. Soups are delicious, flavorful and hot. Staff is very friendly as is the chef who often comes into the dining room and shats with the customers. A great place for a business lunch.

First of all, I should thank Tripadvisor again for helping me find this kitchen in Chicago; if you drive in the neighborhood, there is no way on earth you would guess the #11th restaurant in Chicago is here! Dave made all that happen 30 years ago. The place is small and he would come and greet you in person (As... More

Very friendly staff with incredible food! I've never had a bad meal here, and the vintage building is gorgeous! So much better and more worth the money than any restaurant downtown!

Polo Cafe in the historic Bridgeport neighborhood of Chicago is not only a superb restaurant but the attached Old Eagle Room is well worth asking just to see this part of Dave Samber's Hidden Gem. I was there last week for a very festive party. Wine, music and good friends. The tasty creative menu, the beautiful decor and most importantly... More
