- OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 11/16/2014So sad that Café on the Green has declined so badly - I had gone many times to the Sunday brunch and it was wonderful - now is not the case - especially with the hot food items - or what was supposed to have been hot - cold at best - shriveled and tired at the least - What Chef would let dry, shriveled pieces of salmon sit on a buffet line?
- MehRyanHVIPDined on 11/13/2014I was surprised by the mediocrity of the food we received. It looked good but as far as taste is concerned I was very underwhelmed by my food. The blackened cod wrap was overpowered by the onion jam and with a combo of fish, avocado, tomato, and onion jam was a giant mush-ball in your mouth. The flavor and texture of the wrap was not good. Add something crispy with some bite (like cucumber or a slaw to add some vinegar or something) to give it some interest. The smoked chicken tacos tasted like eating smoked wood chips. Smoke should be the subtle flavor and not so overpowering. As an avid cook at home I always find it a letdown when such high end resorts present such seemingly under-worked dishes.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 11/12/2014Very disappointing - we used to dine at Café on the Green quite often for lunch - the buffet has been eliminated - the service was less than attentive - took forever to get our food - even though there were only two other parties in the restaurant - prices were high - portions were slight
- Fantastic BrunchimonsecondVIPDined on 11/2/2014This is my favorite place for special occasion brunches. They gave a great seafood station which includes raw oysters, crab claws, shrimp, smoked salmon, etc. which in my mind makes it quite unusual. There is sushi, and a very special Japanese tuna station which I highly recommend. There is a really great salad bar, with really unusual offerings such as crawfish/mango salad. Then there are the usual prime rib, omelette/egg and pasta stations. This place is expensive so if that's all you are interested in I would go somewhere else. The signature area (a whole room is devoted to this) is the desserts which includes a make your own cheesecake stations. I can't speak to anything other than their brunch menu on Sunday.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- beehoneyzulu1989Dined on 11/1/2014loved this place my boyfriend and i went there for our first date. the service is outstanding and it's very romantic and classy. a bit of a pinch on the pocket though but it's worth every dime spent.Special Features:
- ChefPotVIPDined on 10/31/2014We used to go to this restaurant for special work occasions because of the great buffet they had at lunch. It is no longer offered, so I doubt we go back. They also should not pre-charge a 17% gratiuty for 3 people. The food was not worth the cost.
- HomecomingOpenTable Diner Since 2013VIPDined on 10/30/2014We returned to our neighborhood gem, Cafe On The Green, after being away for the summer. We had an early engagement so had to come early for dinner. Not only did they open the restaurant a half hour early for us,but they had our favorite table all ready. There are some new items on the menu. I had the halibut which was delicious while my wife had a new vegetarian dish which she could not stop raving over. We had two off menu soups to start. The Black Bean Soup was very good as was the Tortilia Soup which is always available. We finished in time and easily made our engagement. It was delightful to come home to our neighborhood gem which can meet all of your requirements in friendly style.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fabulous EveningOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/14/2014My wife and I had just returned from a week in Cayman on Monday and traveled to Dallas for a one day business trip. Our evening flight was to land late. I decided the day before to contact the hotel and plan a quiet dinner with my wife. I was on line and confronted with Open Table to make the reservation. I did so and requested a table with a view by the window. In short, the entire evening was a huge success. We were greeted by a staff that was waiting for us. I told the wait staff that we were in no hurry. The wine list was superb and the waiter suggested an apple martini for my wife.The food was superb presentation and quality. Many thanks to the staff of the Cafe on the Green for a memorable evening. By the way, we had lunch there also.Special Features:
- I would not recommend this placeKimAndGreggVIPDined on 9/26/2014earlier in the year we had 1 Great dinner BUT this visit will be our last. The hostess gave our table to some VIPs... who had not arrived for their reservation. The busboy tried to help her out by seating us but she grabbed him and took the table back. Our table was the worst table in the whole place wedged up against the stairs that the staff use to walk in and out. Undeterred we tried to make the best of it and failed too. We ordered a bottle of wine and asked the manager to ask the waiter who was too busy for us to decant the wine. the waiter arrived with a different bottle already decanted and stated that they were out of the one we wanted and the manager felt it would be the same. We will not be back.
- Perfect Birthday DinnerBrunchloverVIPDined on 9/23/2014We celebrated my husband's birthday with an outstanding dinner here! We were treated royally. Our server was wonderful and helpful with menu selections. We enjoyed the complimentary champagne and special birthday treats. The salmon was fabulous as well as our salads and desserts. So happy to have The Cafe in our neighborhood but would have travelled for this fine dining experience!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- it was just above okay.OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/21/2014Spots of the buffet brunch were good and spots weren't. We were a party of 3 and brunch was 165.00 plus extra tip (17% already added). Very limited selection on hot items. I didn't try the seafood bar but the other two in the party did, they said the raw oysters were not edible, crab claws were so full of salty water it was all you tasted, ceviche was average to any restaurant. Omelette station was a normal setup. The special station served a tostada made while you waited that was delicious. Pastry station was above average. For my favorite part, the dessert room (drum roll) it was also average with the exception of creme brulee, tres leches, and a couple of panna cotta selections. The desserts were way too sweet with very little richness.Special Features:
- Romantic getawayoutandaboutDined on 9/13/2014Café on the Green was a delight. From the moment you walk into this lovely restaurant, you know you are someplace special. An attentive and smiling staff greet you and seat you. The wine list is excellent and recommendations are gladly given. Excellent, beautifully prepared dishes are presented with elegance and style. We saw groups there enjoying themselves greatly. We stayed at the Four Seasons for a little weekend romantic getaway. The Café on the Green was perfect for us. I don't know how we could have made it any better. We would highly recommend this restaurant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Poor service, decent foodOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 8/31/2014We had reservations but stood at check in for close to 10 minutes before anyone appeared to greet us. We were celebrating my birthday which we mentioned when we made reservation and nobody took note of that. A simple birthday wish would have sufficed from server but nothing was mentioned about it. Food was ok, not great or anything special. Server placed our check on the table when we were still eating and only halfway through brunch. Then as we were getting up from the table the server opened the check to see if we left an additonal tip on top of the already included gratuity. So rude to do that.Special Features:
- Always Lovely!txngirlDined on 8/30/2014We had a lovely dining experience at Cafe on the Green - The Four Seasons never fails to impress me. Very attentive and considerate wait staff. This was a special occasion (50th Birthday Party) and I was hoping for a lovely piece of cake for my guest. Instead - we received a small plate of handmade chocolates and cookies. Very nice! I ordered the Ahi Tuna and it was grilled to absolute perfection. My guest ordered the Halibut and it was amazing!Special Features:
- Great RestaurantBryanDined on 8/18/2014I've been to Cafe on the Green a few times now and I have never been disappointed. The service is always great and they do a great job of monitoring the pace and it never feels rushed. I would not hesitate recommending Cafe on the Green to friends, colleagues or anyone else.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Dinner was enjoyableQGuruDined on 7/9/2014The service was excellent. The one thing you need to have in Texas is sweet tea. Our waiter (who was excellent), empowered himself, got creative and found some sweet syrup and added it to my iced tea. It was excellent. In the orient hotels such as the oriental in Bangkok, the JW in Shanghai, the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, the Shangri-La in Hong Kong and the Oberoi in Mumbai all have "gum syrup" which they offer with their iced tea. That way the guest doesn't have to spend 15 minutes stirring and clinking their spoon to get the sugar to dissolve. I know its a small thing, but that's what separates the good hotels from the great hotels.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Cafe on the Green not on greenteegieDined on 7/6/2014I had not been here in a while but because they have a fantastic sommelier, I decided I wanted to go for brunch. The hotel has gone through several owners but this once elegant hotel needs up updating and vibrancy. It seems tired and so does the dining room. Desserts are outstanding. I am a concierge and try to keep up with the area restaurant changesSpecial Features:
- Great Brunch!OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIPDined on 7/6/2014The food is great, but the desserts are awesome! Kudos to the pastry chef!!!Special Features:
- Not Four Seasons QualityxxxxVIPDined on 6/29/2014Over the years and having enjoyed the Sunday Brunch, this was a real disappointment. Yes, its been over a year since I was back in Irving so when told "management had decided to go in a different direction" they weren't kidding. The quality and selection of food offered wasn't nearly a grand or good as we had experienced in the past. No difference in cost but the overall experience just wasn't keeping with the standard established over the years. One item I always looked forward to was the Prime Rib, but now in only offered as a "Speical" some Sundays. The taste of the beef this past Sunday was like brisket and sorry, a light over it didn't keep it hot or even warm. The attention to service has slid. See comments below.
- Little things make a big differenceKandAVIPDined on 6/21/2014Little things make a big difference, but many little things differentiate a good restaurant and a fine dining experience. It was a special night, with special friends, and we were all extremely satisfied with both the food and the service.Special Features:
- Disappointing service this timeTerryVIPDined on 6/6/2014We've eaten here many times and have always been happy. This time we brought out of town guests and our kids so we made sure to eat early. We were often ignored which is far from the norm here. Since it's associated with a hotel I find it unlikely that his was b/c we brought our kids, but since it was so out of character and this was the first time we brought our kids it made me wonder. We will be back and we will like have kids in two at some point so we'll test it, hopefully with a different outcome.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/28/2014Food was excellent. We shared a few appetizers and each had different entrees. All were done correctly and excellent presentation. Service was attentive but not overbearing.Special Features:
- Awesome brunch buffetCVF2013VIPDined on 5/25/2014Went for the Sunday brunch buffet. I expected more ambiance (the restaurant really feels like you're in a hotel) and hoped to sit outside. There is no outdoor seating at this restaurant that I saw. We didn't know it was a buffet before we went, but everything on it was fantastic. Great selection of seafood and desserts. Service was meh but since all we needed were drinks, it was no biggie. I would go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 5/24/2014Ate here twice while staying at the Four Seasons. Dinner was excellent. Both the ribeye and tenderloin were among the best we've ever had, and that's saying a lot for Texas! Highly recommend the chipotle carrot soup with lobster as an appetizer. Sunday brunch was also excellent. Tremendous selection at the buffet. Quite expensive for brunch ($50) but that is to be expected for a hotel restaurant. I would actually come here again just for the brunch. Service at both meals was top notch. 17% gratuity is automatically added.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Horrible ServicetheheathDined on 5/18/2014Waiter was unpleasant and rude, we were appalled that there was a 17% service charge added to our bill with such bad service. He rarely came back to check on us and acted bothered that we would request refills to our beverages. At his own discretion he placed the bill on the table and never came back to check on us, we were not through eating. To top it off the valet "misplaced" my car and we were stuck waiting outside for 30 minutes while they located it with no apology. This location gives the Four Seasons a bad name. Won't be back!!Special Features:
- Mediocre...A gem lost its lusterdiningdarlingVIPDined on 5/18/2014The place was practically deserted even with the Byron Nelson tournament going on. That should have tipped us off. Been there previously and recall a much larger buffet with more diversity. Servers were hard to flag down. Food was a slight uptick from a Golden Corral. Won't be back.
- Great!Tis4TravelerDined on 5/14/2014I had a really large group - originally set for 12 and at last minute accommodated 20!!!Special Features:
- A Restaurant's Duty to Patrons?SamchildVIPDined on 3/30/2014A classic scene: groupings of patrons, some in pairs, others three, one by himself, enjoying modestly good food, fair service and beautiful, high-end surroundings. In walks a family of four - two children perhaps four and seven. Parents proceed virtually to ignore children, who loudly whine, complain and fuss with no accountability, clearly disturbing the enjoyment of every other patron. Children even begin to run about the decorator surroundings with room-piercing glee. And it goes on and on. Some patrons rush their meal in order to escape, others, like me, are trapped, awaiting entrees. The restaurant does nothing, perhaps succumbing to some notion of political correctness. A perfectly good, $80 meal ruined by hotel's failure to act.
- At lastOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 3/30/2014Have been looking for a Sunday brunch place for some time. This will become a favorite special Sunday place for us.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The lunch Buffett is outstanding.OpenTable Diner Since 2013VIPDined on 3/26/2014The lunch Buffett is outstanding. The cuisine is creative and always we'll presented. The Buffett is a major draw and always satisfying.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A little disappointingOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 3/9/2014Being it's the Four Seasons, I would have expected a heck of a lot more for what you pay. At $45 a head, we had six hot plates of food to choose from which weren't hot at all. No potatoes of any kind among the salad, cheese, desserts, and the six breakfast options. Service was awful. We had to keep looking for our server. At one point, I spilled the creamer and our server disappeared for five minutes while we used all of our own napkins and still had a mess. No other servers or hosts helped. We finally spotted our server as he had disappeared into the kitchen and came out empty handed and actually had to ask for additional napkins and help to clean up the sopping mess. Was very disappointed. Will not be returning for brunch,Special Features:
- Four Seasons; 4+ StarsGunnerDined on 2/27/2014Cafe on the Green compares favorably with other Four Seasons restaurants around the country. COTG is, by far, the best upscale dining venue in the Las Colinas/Irving area. The food and service were very good -- even by Four Seasons standards. The wine list is extensive with a wide assortment of whites and reds from around the world. The ambience of the restaurant is conducive to confidential business dinners, romantic dates. or a more casual meal after golf.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A delightful lunch venue.OpenTable Diner Since 2013VIPDined on 2/26/2014A delightful lunch venue. The buffet has a new theme every day and the service is impeccable.Special Features:
- Good, but expected moreShayDined on 2/23/2014I went for Sunday brunch. The food was great and service was top notch. I just expected more options, it was kinda limited. I'd go back for the regular menu, but the brunch isn't the best value.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Friendly StaffdvbullsDined on 2/21/2014Enjoyed the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. I thought that the restaurant felt comfortable, yet classy and romantic. However, some businessmen next to me became a bit loud and boisterous. The Scottish Salmon was delicious and much more filling than it looked. The Romaine Salad comes with dressing but it was not too much like many restaurants have. Overall, a great place. I would definitely like to try all of the menu items eventually because they sound exquisite.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fabulous for a Sunday Buffet BrunchimonsecondVIPDined on 2/16/2014Fabulous seafood selection from raw oysters, crab claws, shrimp to sushi plus REALLY fabulous dessert selection makes this place a brunch buffet standout. It has the usual hotel omelet/egg, beef and pasta stations as well as the typical buffet selections. Salad selection is so-so but who would go to brunch for that? Food was great. Ask for a table away from the live music if you want to chat. Buffet literally shuts down at 2:30PM so I wouldn't aim for that 2:15 reservation on opentable. Book well in advance. Pricey but what buffet has raw oysters, etc. mentioned above? Great for special occasions.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing brunchOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 2/16/2014Loved everything about it....all 6 of us did...thanksSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OverpriceddfwguestVIPDined on 2/14/2014Food was decent but not great. Price is what you would expect for a Four Seasons or a top restaurant but food simply did not match up and has not for past several trips. You are paying Four Seasons prices for average food. On the other hand, our server was very knowledgeable and friendly.Special Features:
- Valentine's day hitTheIgleVIPDined on 2/14/2014The prix fixe menu was great even with only one area of choice in the entree. A costly (95 a plate) but great experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
