good? bad? in between? worth going?

  1. I have only been once, but the food (a party) was very good, the service was also good, and the prices were verrrrrry expensive. Yes, worth going, and they valet park!

    1. pretty much the same experience as dolores. I've been twice - both for work - and both times my food has been very good. That said, It's been 2 years.

      1. I go often, food is good, not great, but dependable, good service, good vibe, place is not cheap...but I would not call it verrryyy expensive at all

          intrepid, that depends on your definition of moderate, expensive and verrrry expensive.

          To me, Polpo is verrry expensive.

          1. re: dolores

            what do you pay there for dinner for two please Dolores?

            1. re: intrepid

              I didn't. As I shared, I was at a party and so didn't pay. I had a priced menu, though, and remember the prices being very high. For me.

                we eat there often, bill for two apprx 125

                  intrepid, I was coming here to use just that number, since it just popped into my head. I used to be able to tolerate $100. for dinner for two, drinks (1 each) included, as a decently priced expensive restaurant. Previously, 'not' so very long ago, two people could get a dinner at a very good restaurant for $75. These prices are before tax and tip. Harrald's at $65. a head was for special occasions only.

                  However, suddenly in Westchester we were finding that dinner for two (I usually have two appetizers for my meal) was suddenly creeping to $125., $150. for two.

                  I find that outrageous but guess what, unless you go to a red sauce place or a pizza joint, there's no getting away from these new and improved prices.

                  So, yes, I consider places like these verrry expensive and Polpo, as you noted, is in my category of verrry expensive. However, at least I walk out happy and the valet will get my car.

                  1. re: dolores

                    saluti ! I do not consider $125 for two very expensive. I respect and value your posts. enjoy !
