Wine Dinner 4/2/2010

Once again another great wine dinner took place on Wednesday March 31st at Polo's. The service was excellent and the wine flowed. The kitchen was on point and the food was better than ever. Chef Adam, Chris and the rest of the kitchen staff served beautifully prepared food that went perfect with the wine. Todd did a great job making all guests feel important. My only regret is that it was Chef Adams last night at Polo's. He will be missed. Pros: great food great service more

elegant sophisticated dining with a cool relaxed feel 10/26/2009

I had been to the restaurant for lunch a few times since it is close by work and always loved the food and the business professional atmosphere. So i Decided to take my wife for dinner this weekend. She was blown away with the entire dining experience! The food was top notch, full of flavor and presented masterfully. The atmosphere was perfect for our date night as she prefers piano music and nice lighting. And our server was reealy good about being attentive but only approaching at proper times. Not constantly interupting our conversaton like some servers. Thanks for making date night a memorable one! We will be back Pros: friendly professional service, amazing food Cons: non more

Plenty of Other Good Restaurants in Houston 10/23/2009

My husband and I consider ourselves pretty big foodies and like to give restaurants a fair chance; however, our dinner tonight was awful. We chose Polo's to celebrate my birthday, and at first it seemed like a nice, romantic ambiance especially with the live piano music. However, we sat at the table with our menus closed, ready to order for about 15 minutes while the waiters stood around in the kitchen or were wining and dining guests that looked like they were spending a lot of money there. Throughout our entire meal they were not attentive and our food was extremely slow to come out considering how empty the restaurant was. Yes, my cesar salad was very delicious and had lots of flavor, and my husband's lobster bisque was some of the best we've tried. Yet, we don't go to restaurants of this caliber for their soup and salad. Both of our fish courses were overcooked and lacked any type of flavor. One of my scallops tasted almost rancid. The only thing good on both the plates was the grilled asparagus. We watched the chefs in the kitchen (since we had an abundance of time between courses) and realized they were placing all the orders in a large "oven." When we asked the waiter about it, he said they flash cook every plate toward the end to cook each dish through. It sounded to us like microwaving, and that's what the food tasted like. We've ate our fair share of nice restaurants and have both worked in the food service industry, and I've never seen a "fine dining" restaurant prepare food this way. For about $30 a plate, I expect my food to come straight off the grill - especially when this restaurant had maybe 5 tables this night. Overall, we will never go back. Pros: Decor, Lobster Bisque, Chopped Cesar Salad Cons: Service, Grilled Salmon, Grilled Snapper Special more

excellent food and service 10/12/2009

I can't believe that those who gave this place 1 star went to the same restaurant. Our waiter was superb. He gave us the right amount of attention, lightened the mood with his upbeat personality, and his thoughtful actions made our dinner worthwhile. Each dish came out well-presented, like the beet, peach, and goat cheese salad that was garnished with a thin slice of watermelon radish. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and it was a pity we had absolutely no room for dessert. Pros: nice decor, attentive and friendly waiter, delicious food Cons: none more

Really? 9/25/2009

I dined at polos for lunch a couple of months ago and thought it was ok. But like most restaurants I thought the expirience would be better at dinner.Boy was I wrong. The food was just as good but the service was horrible. The server poored way too much wine into my glass wich would be ok if I had ordered by the glass but we got a bottle. The wine list was awful with very few good wines. I really wish the server we had at lunch was still there but apparently he wised up and left. O and to top it off we had to endure not only the broken english of our waiter (ray or rob or whatever) but the owners as well, who decided to bring his drunk and stinking self to our table and wouldn't go away. I'll consider going back for lunch but the manager really needs to hire a great wait staff and keep the owner from chasing off the buisiness....O the piano was very nicely done. Pros: Great food Cons: Wine list, Service, Polo more

not a good experience 9/23/2009

The bar was staffed with what seemed like temp staff. horrible vodka martini, the owner was at the end of the bar not really paying attention to the detail but doing a good job at schmoozing. appetizers were ok, salad was small and ordinary. Our waiter was great. I felt almost sorry for him. This was my second time and I will not go again. Pros: Great waiter Cons: overall a poor experience that I will not repeat more

Excellent fine dining experience! 8/28/2009

My husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary at Polo's this past weekend. We were treated like royalty from the time we walked in. I especially loved my braised short rib ravioli and carmelized shrimp main course! What a magical night and incredible food and service. Highly recommended - make a reservation. Pros: Divine Wedding Anniversary Dinner more

Horrible Serrvice, Inattenive Manager until the end 8/23/2009

HORRIBLE, the entire experience was a total disaster!! The absolute worst service I've ever experience in my entire life. The waiter was rude, condescending, inattentive, and mostly invisible. It took almost ONE HOUR to get a bottle of wine. The entire miserable experience took THREE HOURS. The manager passed through the room several times but completely ignored us. The food was "good" but not "great." I finally chased down the manager and he was most apologetic and seemed genuinely concerned about our horrible experience and comp'd the meal and asked us to give Polo's another chance with a $100 gift certificate. This was a great display of customer service, but we'll wait awhile before returning to try and forget our first experience. Pros: None Cons: Service, Service, Service more

Crab Cake Sandwich on 7Grain Beer Bread ROCKS 3/27/2009

I had lunch at Polo's Signature for the first time this week and LOVED the crab cake sandwich on sweet grain Beer bread with roumalde crab salsa . ssso Delicious and unique! The peanuty flavor of my arugula salad worked perfectly w my sweet sandwich. Mom had the smoked chicken ravioli with goat cheese which i tasted and will order next time! The service is fairly prompt and friendly though we did enjoyed a 2 hour lunch. Great special occasion lunch or dinner. Pros: The Food. Presentation and delicious flavor Cons: A bit pricey but a great lunch! more

Eh, much better places in town 3/10/2009

We ate here recently, based upon the reviews here. I'm not sure how it racked up all of these five star reviews, however. I have eaten at the best restaurants in Houston, and I just did not find Polo's to measure up to my standards. The service was horribly slow; it took a half hour before we were even brought any water or bread to the table. Another half hour went by before our waiter showed up to take our menu order. Next, the waiter brought the incorrect (and more expensive) wine to our table, with his quickly uncorking it before allowing us to review the label. This followed by the waiter bringing the wrong order twice to our table, before our receiving the correct meal. The waiter never asked how we wanted our steak cooked. The food was good, but very small in quantity and barely lukewarm by the time it arrived at our table. For spending $350 for four people (two of them being our children), there are much better places that far outperform Polos here in Houston. Cons: Slow, inadequate service more

Not very good! Wouldn't reccomend........ 3/1/2009

When i first walked in it was beautiful and smelled GREAT! As you may have heard from Wade....Cus took the family there is was not so hot. The waiter was extremely forgetful.......and my food didn't come till an hour or so till wade talked to the manager. He fix everything and it was better. But the waiter brought the wrong wine. I liked the roses and food! ^^ that's bout all that was good. EVERYTHING ELSE WAS TERRIBLE!!!! Pros: Food was great and it looked Xtremely nice. Cons: The service was terrible and the waiter was forgetful. :-( more

Best gourmet meal I have ever had 2/24/2009

My wife and I went to Polos Signature restaurant for Valentines Day, based on the recommendation of a friend. Having dined at some of the finest restaurants in the country, I fancy myself as somewhat of a food expert. What we found at Polos was a dining experience comparable to the finest we have ever experienced anywhere. Without question we will reserve Polos for special occasions when we want to treat ourselves and our friends to the "Best of the Best"! Our hat is off to Adam, the executive chef and his staff for uncompromising quality and exceptional service!! Thanks!! Lloyd Pros: Food, ambience and service were extraordinary Cons: none more

Great Restaurant for Any Occasion 2/19/2009

You guys have got to try this place! Girlfriend and I were really impressed by the service and food. Try their souffle for dessert or homemade carrot cake! We even met Chef Polo when we were there. The restaurants really conveniently located. When we crave good food we don't have to drive all the way downtown and deal with the parking issue. We had a date night and went there for dinner and then jumped next door to Edward's Theatre for a movie! It was great! more

What a BRUNCH!!!! 2/19/2009

My family and I had Brunch here last Sunday and we were pleasantly surprised by the extensive choices on the menu, from healthy omelettes, and french toast to steak and eggs. I had the seafood crepe (ask for the cream sauce on the side, it's better) which was yummy! Everyone who ordered the steak and eggs (highly recommend this dish) loved it too. The orange juices (freshly squeezed), and mimosas were also good, but the bellini's was heaven! Think I had one too many, it was that good! Oh and I almost forgot to mention that they also served our brunch with these freshly baked muffins with a whipped butter that had pecans or walnuts in it. We couldn't get enough of them! If you're looking for a place to go on Sundays, you have to try the brunch here. I guarantee you'll love it! more

Very affordable for Fine Dining! 2/19/2009

First of all let me just say that I eat out alot. I'll go downtown, heights, sugarland, woodlands if the food is good. And if the food is good and affordable, well I'm there! So I tried Polo's for the first time after reading all of these reviews and had to see for myself. True to the reviews, it was really good. If you're wanting fine dining without the expensive price tag, you'll love Polo's. Portion size was nice too! For a fine dining restaurant, I Definitely got my money's worth! more

Gotta come here lunch! 2/19/2009

I work around Greenway Plaza and only have time for one hour lunch. So tired of the usual sandwiches and burgers around here, me and a couple of girlfriends decided to meet at Polo's for lunch. WOW! They had a nice selection of salads and sandwiches, like the Polo's signature caesar salad was to die for! I had the crab cakes sandwich and another one of my girlfriends had the vegetarian sandwich which had avocado and portabello mushrooms. She said it was really good. Normally we don't like to spend a lot of money for lunch, so it was great that their price for food didn't break the bank! The servers knew we were on lunch break so the food came out fast! Lunch was so good I definitely would try the dinner here! more

What a wonderful surprise!!! 2/19/2009

It was my wife's birthday and I wanted to take her somewhere nice but feared that the usual restaurants like Mark's, Tony's etc. would be overpriced and the food would be so so. I wanted some place new and had heard about Polo's through some co-workers who go there for lunch. So I took a risk and we celebrated her birthday there this past weekend. I was, of course, very critical of everything. But to both of our surprise, the food, wine, desserts and yes, even the service was phenomenal! For the first time, we were greeted by the Chef, Polo, himself! I told him we were celebrating my wife's birthday and he made sure we got the attention we needed. He was so gracious and personable! I highly recommend the lobster tower salad with fresh sliced fruits (mango, papaya) or the mixed salad with roasted pears to start. I had the rib eye steak, which was cooked to perfection, and my wife chose a lighter dish a honey glazed salmon with crab meat risotto. The portions were actually bigger than most fine dining restaurants we've been too, which was great! All in all, I would highly recommend Polo's to anyone. My wife and I plan on being regulars there! more
