Polo Grill Ratings and Reviews
Good local restaurant with an excellent bar
My wife and I went to Polo Grill for her birthday on a Friday night. We requested a booth and arrived ~30 minutes early to have a drink and wait at the bar for our tables. The bartenders were fantastic, Jerry and the other girl were both very attentive and made great cocktails. We ended up waiting for our table a bit longer than expected, but we assured them it was alright and we knew we may have to wait for a booth to open up. The bartender's provided my wife with a glass of champagne to make up for the long wait which was greatly appreciated. We were seated at our booth and our waiter Jared was exceptional. Superior service and excellent recommendations. Allowed us to slowly enjoy our meal and not feel rushed at all. The kitchen ended up overcooking my wife's filet the first time and I ended up with the wrong steak preparations and sides, although Jared fixed it, and the wrong preparation actually ended up tasting better. All in all it was a very pleasant night. My ribeye steak was excellent, the cocktails were great, and it is a nice place to spend a quiet night out.
Delicious food, great service, excellent wines.
Arrived a bit early, they were ready for us. Excellent service from everyone. Excellent wine list--one of the best around. Had no problems picking out 2 wines, everything in stock. Shrimp starter was excellent. Small filet was perfect, fish was perfect, now wish I had ordered the lobster tail, too, because it looked fabulous at another table. Dessert was excellent and everything was very high quality. I always expect a lot of The Polo and they always deliver.
One of the finest restaurants in Tulsa
The Polo Grill remains a top-notched Tulsa jewel with a relaxing atmosphere. The service could not have been better the night we visited.

A local's point of view: Great food. Great service.
This restaurant is hard to find at night. But once found what a delight. Fantastic staff. Food was excellent. The wine list could compete with a nyc restaurant.
Amazing as always!
Their attention to detail is always noticed! Our steaks were perfect! We are never disappointed when choose Polo Grill!!
Still has the charm and ambiance it is famous for
Hadn't been to Polo Grill in a few years and went for Easter Brunch. We were seated immediately in a good location, the waitstaff was very attentive, and food did not disappoint. Will certainly plan another meal there soon.

Polo always reliable - and excellent - for food and service.
Excellent service and a stunning wine list. Slightly more formal of an environment, but without being too portentous. An excellent find.
A Real Gem
The Polo Grill is an excellent place to go with a great atmosphere. The food is great p, really love their meatloaf. We especially like to go in for a late lunch on Saturdays and sit at the bar chatting with other patrons.
Wonderful as Always!
This is our go to fine dining restaurant in Tulsa if you want a delicious steak and salad or just their steak/frites in the bar. But everything on the menu is good! Food and service are always exceptional!
The Polo Grill is an exceptional place to dine! The food is outstanding, the service impeccable, and the ambiance unmatchable! I took a doctor friend and his wife out for dinner to Polo. He is a vegetarian and they accommodated his needs with no problem. Every visit has been exceptional in every way. It's a MUST visit on my list of restaurants next time I am in Tulsa. It's a place to see and be seen!! Thank you!!
Polo Grill Review...stop at the salad.
Server was inattentive and brought us the wrong bottle of wine ($100 mistake). We drank it so it wouldn't go to waste.... We ordered our $100 meal for two medium rare. The steak came out medium to medium well. Pretty much ruined. However.....the salad was very good. I will not be going back here, ever. If you have $250 or more to blow on dinner, walk over to Flemings. Or if in south Tulsa hit Mahogany. I've never been disappointed in those two. Polo Grill must be relying on people with more money than taste to stay afloat....very disappointed.
Second time isn't always lovelier
My first experience with this restaurant was flawless. This time, the service was still impeccable, but the food was slightly off. FAR too much cheese on top of the Caesar salad and the dressing was only so-so. Filet of sole was lovely, but too many mushrooms on top killed the presentation. Even the jalapeno corn bread muffin was cool, instead of warm enough to melt butter (which is the only way to serve corn bread). It is still one of Tulsa's best, but just not up to par with itself on this particular night.
Valentines wallet lifter
I was bringing my girlfriend to Polo Grill for two reasons, Valentines and Lobster Bisque. She doesn't eat much, but we were forced to pay $95 a head just to eat. I had to beg for the Lobster Bisque, because it was not on the SET MENU. The filet was only 7 oz. The lobster tail was over cooked. I did not want to complain in front of my girlfriend, but felt that a $250 bill for TWO people was extremely HIGH.. I will never go back for lunch. If I am craving Lobster Bisque, I will go there then hop over to Flemmings whose filet is far more superior.
Astounding, as always
Our Valentine's Day dinner at the Polo was even better than expected. The special menu was amazing, and unlike special-occasion menus at many restaurants, was just as good or better than the regular menu. It started with their signature roasted tomato bisque, continued with a lovely salad, then the surf and turf, perfectly prepared. The dessert of baked fudge and vanilla bean ice cream, normally one of my favorites, suffered a bit from being prepared too much in advance, but it was still good. Along with s gorgeous bottle of 10-year old Cabernet Franc, it was one of our most memorable meals. Well done, Mr. Merrifield.
The food and service were terrific. Howe ...
The food and service were terrific. However, I was not aware of the special menu they had for Valentine's, so it just wasn't as enjoyable for me because I didn't have control over what food and how much food we got. I'm also not the biggest fan of the super dark atmosphere, this the 3-star rating. Overall, a good experience, but I would probably choose Fleming's or Mahogany's next time, instead
Valentine Day Dine at Polo Grill
We got there before the set menu kicked in at 4 pm and ordered off the menu. My wife had the salmon and she thought it was really good, especially with the grits. I had the ribeye. I ordered it medium and it came out very rare. I didn't take the time to send it back for more cooking. It was very tender and flavorful but too fatty for my liking(even for a ribeye). I had the grits with mine and they were really good. The best was the lobster bisque. It was unreal. Service was good except they were really slow getting my wife coffee and I had to remind them to get it after 5 to 7 minutes.
The perfect Valentine treat!
My husband surprised me with dinner at The Polo Grill for Valentines Day. Two of my children surprised my by being there when we arrived. This was the first time we had been to Polo Grill. The food, dinner and atmosphere was excellent! The perfect Valentine treat! We will certainly be back as well as tell our friends about Polo Grill! Thank You!
Valentine's Day Brunch
If you love Bloody Marys, this is a great place to get this classic drink. There's nothing "weird" about the drink. It's just really good! We had the Grand Marnier French Toast and the Steak Benedict. My husband enjoyed his french toast dish. My steak dish was a little cool and there was a lot of sauce. I think it would have been nice to have a small bowl for the side of fruit because mine had Benedict sauce on the grapes, etc. The coffee was delicious. I ate half of mine and was truly full. We looked at the dessert menu but there wasn't the variety on it that I expected. Overall, we enjoyed our meal and sure wish we had such a place in our town.
Needs a Reset
We lived in Tulsa for 15 years and always felt special at the Polo Grill. While back visiting friends and on Valentine's Day, we thought it would be a great place to eat. As a point to mention, they were only serving a prix fixe menu --- which is fine and is not the root of our complaint (in fact, this should have made things easier for them). We were going to the bar before to have a drink and the seemingly over-stressed host treated us like we were criminals and should not be there. Once we got past this hurdle and sat at our two bar stools, as we always remembered, the bar staff and the ambiance in the bar was amazing ... good drinks, good service. Our table service, however left much to be desired and I fear the Polo Grill should be embarrassed by what occurred. The wine came with a 7 minute story about the waiter (who, while telling the tale, did not fill up one of the wine glasses on the table and also left my "tasting glass" unfilled). Water glasses were left empty until requested -- twice. One drink order that was put in (coca-cola) had to be requested twice. A second drink order that was put in (a glass of white wine) was never filled. A third drink order (coffee afterwards, which we were asked if we wanted) was ordered and never came. The courses overlapped with plates not being cleared before new plates arrived. The food was fine and acceptable, but not great. In general, it felt like training day at a new restaurant. In retrospect, perhaps it is an old and established restaurant that needs to remember why they became old and established in the first place.
Missed it this time
We have patronized the Polo Grill several times and it was always a great experience. This was Valentine's Day and it was not what was expected. We booked via Open Table, and nothing was mentioned regarding a pre-set menu. In fact, we booked the Polo Grill specifically because we didn't want to be forced into a pre-set menu. Upon being seated we learned they had a pre-set menu, and it was $95/each. The cost was not the issue. Being given the choice of that menu for $95/each, or leaving the restaurant was not acceptable, and not the experience we expected when making the reservation. It's a real shame because the food is/was prepared well, and the service was good, considering the circumstances. We will most likely give them another chance at some point in the future, but this experience is not one I will repeat next Valentine's Day.
Best in Town
Always a wonderful service, food, atmosphere , we like romantic dining.
Absolutely NOT gluten free. Great food, ...
Absolutely NOT gluten free. Great food, but got glutened!
Went on Valentines Day for a Romantic Dinner. Made reservations a week in advance and had no idea that the Menu would be set for all guests. They had a specific Valentines Day Menu and it was 94.00 per person. This was not mentioned when the reservations were made. If we had know, we would have found other options. We felt stuck because we did not have time to make other arrangements. A little notice about the set Menu would have made all the difference. My wife does not like Lobster Tail, so we paid a lot for a meal that was not as enjoyable as it should have been. The staff was excellent and we enjoyed them and the setting, just wish we had know the price before arrival.
We were a young couple for the restaurant and we were treated differently from the other dinners. Our serve was more favorable to the older couples then to my date and I. I was embarrassed by the lack of service we received as I know the level of service I should have received. You definitely have declined in service and paying $300+ for dinner I expected to be taken care of.
Is it worth it?
The food was very good. Tenderloins and New York was cook perfect. With appetizer, entré, and desert plus tip came to $205!! Although very tasty, it will remain a once a year treat due to cost.
Food and service were amazing.
Can't wait to go back, the steak was amazing, great bread, wine, and service.
The food was outstanding, as always.
Our waiter, Russ, was excellent. The entire staff was professional and friendly, but Russ was exceptional.
Service and food could not be better!
A wonderful classy -yet-comfortable Tulsa restaurant. Superb menu and excellent service. We always enjoy Polo Grill for brunch, lunch or a lovely special evening dinner.
Food selection was limited and way overpriced.
Excellent service. Food was OK but too expensive. Menu was limited and everything suggested was outrageously high. I'm not a cheap person by any means but there are too many other places in Tulsa that have better food at a better value.
We loved it!
My fiancé and I went to dinner at Polo Grill together last week, and I fell in love with it. He had been there previously for a rehearsal dinner, but I had never been. I'm not much of a wine drinker, but I still took the time to read their wine list.. Incredible. We started with the bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer and wow! We decided to split the surf n turf, with a 20 oz ribeye & the garlic parmesan shrimp. Everything tasted better than I could have hoped! I do not have a bad thing to say about the food. The service was awesome. The staff was very well-mannered, and I never had to ask for anything; they were always one step ahead. I can't wait until we go back!
Our 38th Wedding Anniversary and we chose the Polo Grill to celebrate. We were greated promptly and courteously and had a short wait to be seated. I requested a booth and was pleasantly surprised that my request was fulfilled. Service was a bit slow as it took a while before our server appeared. Service during the entire meal never seemed to improve. My entre' was served upon mashed potatoes and I had requested mashed sweet potatoes as a substitute. My dinner came with the mashed potatoes. I mentioned the error to our server and just as I was finishing my last bite a plate of lukewarm mashed potatoes arrived. Bread service was nonexistent as we had to ask our server and once provided we never received additional bread. All in all not the greatest special event meal.
My favorite Tulsa restaurant, equal to the best in the US and most in Europe. Excellent service. Good wine list, but $$$. Highly recommended.
The service was very good. Very attentive without being a pest and that can be hard to carry off. This was a business lunch. Food was really good and it was quiet enough to carry on a conversation.
Great overall dining experience
We have dined here about 4 times and had the same server every time. She is the best and everything is consistently great. We pick polo grill for special occasions and when we just want great food like the filet and tomato bisque.
Portions small for price
Salmon portion was smaller than other more price comparable places. The dessert was high priced. The desset I got had a stale hard cookie. Too expensive to be serving for of that quailty.
Polo Grill Excellence
You can't miss at Polo Grill, always exceeds expectations. The only caveat is try to avoid the "busy" occasions like Valentines Day; this is a stand alone operation as opposed to its chain competitors. The food is still good but believe the kitchen gets a bit rushed and quality suffers but only slightly; even with this the restaurant still bests it's competition by far. Something to also consider; the calamari is exceptional so if you want to splurge it's worth it.
Tasty Anniversary Visit
Up from Dallas for Anniversary/New Year's adventure and set reservation on NY Eve with special menu that was very tasty - we loved the Lobster bisque and Filet with whipped potatoes and warm brownie dessert. Salad was the only weak link. Our waiter Erin was engaging and attentive. Setting was upscale and old school with perfect location in Utica Square, which became our favorite touch point.
Awesome date night restaurant!
Polo Grill has been a favorite of my wife and me for years. Service is always top notch. It's obvious that the staff is extensively trained in high quality customer service...they make everyone feel important and respected. Small touches are very appreciated: we had our leftovers boxed up to take home...our waiter didn't just scrape our plates, he added a new serving of side items and a container of the sauces that came in our steaks. Essentially, it was another meal instead of a few bits of leftovers. That attention to detail and exceptional service will keep us going back for years. The fees are high, but, as with everything, you get what you pay for. Polo Grill has excellent food, but you don't go there to buy food, you buy an experience centered around food. Well worth my dollar!
