On a chilly, drizzly (of course, though not predicted) night, Bryan and I walked by this establishment en route to another restaurant. We noted that it was almost completely full, but there were communal tables, and the atmosphere was just what we were looking for.

After reaching the other place and finding out it was closed, we turned on our heels and headed back to Polidor. 🙂



It has been around since 1845, and it doesn’t look like a lot has changed. The patrons do dine together, sharing carafes of water, and condiments. I can only imagine all of the great conversations had over these tables within these walls.


We found the prix fixe incredibly reasonable, as well as unbelievably delicious! The service was good, the lighting was flattering, and the noise level was perfect for both conversation AND eavesdropping! 🙂


The portions were well sized. As you can see…I am about to dive into my tarte citron. 😉
