My family and I had a wonderful dining experience this past weekend at Polo Steakhouse. We were celebrating my mother's 70th birthday and the staff (JC and his crew in the dining room as well as the kitchen staff) made sure the occasion was extra special. The restaurant makes for a delightful blend of ambiance and food along with high-quality service. The staff pampered us (and it appeared that this was the norm for all guests) and acted as if they could read our minds, operating in anticipation of our needs. That type of polished service is unfortunately too rare these days even at some of the finest restaurants in the NYC area. My family and I travel both within and outside the US and are major foodies, but we were still incredibly impressed with Polo making us question why it had been several years since we last visited. While enjoying cocktails, we were served the house-made biscuits which simply melt in your mouth (no butter needed). Moving onto appetizers, we had the Lobster Bisque (the best I have ever tasted), Grilled Baby Octopus, Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, Shrimp Cocktail and Chilled Maine Lobster Salad. For our mains we had the Halibut, Grilled Rainbow Trout, Pot Au Feu, Filet Mignon and Green Circle Chicken. All were exceptional. For my main course I enjoyed a special bone-in NY Strip Steak that had been dry-dry aged for 105 days. Without exaggeration, I can honestly say that this was the most exceptional steak I have ever eaten (and having lived in and around NYC my entire life, I have dined at all the classic NY Steakhouses so I know steak). For sides we enjoyed the Mac & Cheese, Creamed Spinach, and Roasted Mushrooms & Caramelized Onions. We finished our meal with several desserts. All were delicious, however, the Chocolate Pot De Crème, Crème Broulee and Bread Pudding with Bourbon Ice Cream were the real standouts. Polo Steakhouse is not to be missed!
