We ate here today for a celebratory lunch. We have been dining at Polpo for nearly a decade, and have always enjoyed the menu offerings and service. Today, however, we had a very different experience. Our party of 11 had a 1pm reservation for lunch. Save another couple, the restaurant was nearly empty. Our food was acceptable, however our service... More

Overall a good place to do a business dinner or entertain guests. Interesting menu options and service is steady. It does get loud, so better to sit upstairs in the smaller seating areas. It is not cheap but few places in Greenwich are. Parking can be tricky and usually drive past it and park street side.

This restaurant did not seem to be prepared for a busy Saturday night. Everything was very slow (15 min and several queries to get a menu) and orders came out wrong or not at all. Finally we had to cancel one remaining order and leave after 2 hours. Prices are quite high but pretty much would you'd expect for this... More

Polpo is a world unto itself. Aside from one of the coolest people watching restaurants - especially in the bar - this is a GREAT restaurant for any occasion. Go in jeans, go in a tux, you'll never feel out of sync. Go for a hamburger (wow, what a hamburger) or go for a fancy four-course dinner for the most... More

We visited Polpo for my daughter's birthday. It's kind of Italian with a Mediterranean flair. We sampled 3 different dishes. The home made ravioli was terrific. The lamb chops were also great and the pasta carbonara absolutely reminded me of being back in Rome. The atmosphere was wonderful. We ate in the bar area where they had some mellow live... More

We went on Sunday and got the pleasant surprise of live music. The service was a little slow and the waiter could have been a little more knowledgeable but the food was good and the atmosphere fun.

Tucked on the side streets of the Old Post Road, along a side street sits Polpo, I had not had the chance to go there when it was called Tapestries, as my fellow birthday reveller, Shari stated - as she is an insider of back country Greenwich. My friend had made a reservation for dinner at 8 pm and we... More

Simply my first choice in the NE. Great food, service and atmosphere. I love the liver. I know liver it's not everyone's favorite, but few places in the US makes liver Venetian style this good. I love the music and the staff.

Yet again, polpo entrées were okay (average taste) for the prices). Ordered all their specials over the weekend: liver, risotto, and short rib; all tasted like I made it myself at home. We did order the ravioli entree dish from their regular menu, this was spectacular, however, small (4 pieces only). The ravioli was out of this world and the... More
