“Good home cooking”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Good home cooking with choices such as turnip greens, garlic potatoes, and meatloaf in somewhat of an upscale atmosphere with the white tablecloths and linen napkins. Unfortunately, the service is very inconsistent: Some days it's perfect, some days it takes a long time to order and a long time for the food to come out.

“Got me once---never again”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

They must have been having a very off day on the Sunday we were in. Food was overpriced for quality & mediocre at best. Sevice was deplorable as waiters wandered aimlessly ignoring the few diners who were there, obviously more interested in the TV than their patrons. Asked for eggs to be cooked a little better and they finally came back 20 minutes later when our party was finished eating and the rest of my meal was stone cold. Will not go back nor recommend to anyone. So disappointing.

“Delicous food,coffee w. some unique offerings!”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Tried out the Chipped Beef in Cream Cheese spread on Sourdough Toast. It was incredibly good! I'll never laugh at the jar of chipped beef again when i walk past it in the grocery store. Might even buy some myself & try to make this at home. Give it a try!

“Polonza Bistro, New and Good!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Our visit was associated with my daughter's wedding. Her new in-laws secured Polonza for our rehersal dinner. Excellent food, great service and reasonably priced. Furthermore, they are open for breakfast, Sunday brunch and special occasions. Originally, the family wanted to host the dinner at McGuires, but the McGuires' staff was snotty and not responsive at all. It was if McGuires was doing us a "favor" even mentioning the money they would "lose" by renting out part of the establishment for the dinner. Polonza was exactly the opposite, great service, appreciative of our business and excellent food. A must try when in Pensacola!
