“Great food and ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2007

They really seem to know what they are doing at this off-the-beaten-path Sinatra-esque restaurant.

The place has an old world feel to it (specials are presented on chalkboards) and the food is always fresh and the veal with artichokes is a show-stopper. If the Dover sole is on the menu, go for it as it is pretty similar La Grenioulle's .

Polpo is very popular in Greenwich, so don't be surprised if the place is jammed. My only complaint and it is fairly minor is that I have had to wait at the bar (5-10 minutes) a few times for my table to be readied - that said, the managers of the restaurant seemed genuinely sorry for the inconvenience and offered me an after dinner cognac - pretty nice. All in all, its hard to go wrong at Polpo whether you are going for a romantic dinner or with the kids.
