    Going through the motions

    My wife and I celebrated her 40th birthday at Po and it was quite a disappointment. The restaurant is very loud as some of the other reviewers have pointed. More problematically, they seemed driven to turn the table over as fast a possible. They kept clearing a plates as soon as one of us would finish a dish. I didn't even have time to put down my fork from my appetizer before they brought the entrees. Total time between being seated, appetizer, entree and dessert... 45 minutes. Also, when made the reservation, I specifically mentioned that we we're going to be celebrating my wife's birthday. However, the restaurant made no acknowledgement whatsoever. Not even a "happy birthday" from the server. Food was average for an Italian restaurant in NYC. One notable exception: I had the porcini crusted cod and it was definitely a little funky (i.e the fish was less than sparkling fresh). In the end, I would not go back to Po. You can get much better Italian food at similar prices and better treatment at other restaurants. It really seemed to me that Po was going through the motions of being a nice restaurant when it really is more of a squat and gobble kind of place.

    First and last dinner at Po

    After several unsuccessful attempts to book a table at Po, we finally had our first dinner there during NYC’s Restaurant Week. Both food and service were very good. But we won’t return, for two reasons. First, the noise level made it almost impossible to talk across a small table. The restaurant is small, all the surfaces are hard, and the management plays background music with a beat, which makes all the diners talk louder to be heard over it. And second, sadly, we’re accustomed to a restaurant marking up the wine to three times its retail price, which is probably four times the price at which they bought it. But the 2011 Santi pinot grigio for which we paid $39 sells for $9.99 at Garnet Wines, a well-known local wine shop. Po should be ashamed of its exorbitant markups!

    Overrated

    After much hype decided to try Po. The waitress was not helpful in recommending any stand out items, and rather just listed everything on the menu and said it was good. The roasted portobello mushroom salad was good, but not spectacular. The cavatelli and broccoli was sub-par at best. Cavatelli was under cooked, and there was no sauce on the dish. Meatballs were tasty. It could have been an off night, but I do not think this place lived up to the hype, and there are many better Italian food options in the West Village.

    Had lunch here to avoid the diner crowd. While the food here was good, it was not amazing. We expected it to be exceptional, and it was basically just good Italian, nothing more. Service was polite, but didn't offer us fresh cracked pepper. I had to ask, twice. Hostess sat at the bar almost oblivious to what was going on. Bread and oil olive were very good. Food was fresh, but I don't understand the hype.
