“We have been so lucky that the community has accepted The Patio At Polo so warmly. Mat and I had wanted to open a restaurant in Wellington for quite a while, and to have it thriving means a lot to us,” said Motley, co-owner with husband Allen. “We love inviting first-time diners to experience the restaurant, but seeing returning faces is especially rewarding. All of the support has given us another reason to do what we love.”

As a burgeoning hot spot for dinner in Wellington, The Patio At Polo has been routinely accepting reservations a week in advance, with a handful of full weeks selling out before Monday even rolls around. No reservation? No need to worry as The Patio At Polo accepts walk-ins, and the full-service bar is equipped to serve the perfect cocktail or glass of wine from the carefully curated list in case there is a wait for your table. Surrounded by flickering tiki torches and elegant hanging lanterns, a short wait at the bar or the comfortable terrace seating is plenty inviting within the Patio At Polo’s enchanting atmosphere.

Groups large or small can be accommodated at The Patio At Polo.

With more than 15 years of experience in the catering and event planning spheres, Motley knows how to navigate the intricacies associated with event organization, and she brings her talents to The Patio At Polo effortlessly. In less than two months, the venue has hosted numerous private events as well as holiday and event specials, including The Trunk Show at Polo and a presentation by Safari Adventures Worldwide. For equestrian enthusiasts, Winter Equestrian Festival highlights are streamed live on the bar televisions, perfect for fans interested in the results but not the crowd at Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.
