    Been there many times for lunch....first time for dinner and not as impressed. Careful to rate something on first/one experience but I found the service a bit spotty on this dinner ocassion and that might explain why my halibut was so overcooked. Like I said, have had many a great lunch there but this dinner experience was not the best.

    A colleague and I went there for lunch during the work day. Our server was very attentive and polite and was prompt in getting our separate bills so that we could make it to our next meeting on time. My colleague really enjoyed her spinach gnocci. I had a raspberry lemonade and a steak salad. The steak was perfectly prepared as a medium-rare. I was disappointed with the very small amount of salad. It was maybe 1/4 or less of the plate. It was quite tasty, just not quite filling enough. The raspberry lemonade was okay but a bit disappointing. It was a little too sweet. Too much raspberry syrup vs. lemonade. I would not order that again. The ambiance is very dark with black walls and ceilings and no windows, since it is in the basement. It would be a good place for after-work drinks or late night bar scene.

    Well located, food is good but not exceptional, environment is a bit noisy but manageable. Definitely a good spot for those business lunches. Sat at a table for two. Food portion was more to the smaller side. Service was prompt, but I felt a little rushed towards the end of the meal.

    We went here for my friends birthday. We absolutely loved the food, all of the Tapas we had were great. It was unfortunate though that we were charged 17$ for our margaritas which were made into doubles (Which I thought was a little steep$$). After ordering 4 one of the girls bill was close to 90$ for drinks , it would have been nice if they mentioned it was 8$ for one shot of tequila along with the charge of the drink. We wont be coming back for drinks, maybe the tapas!

    Went for lunch and was not my typical experience. For starters our waiter had a full beard. Very unprofessional. Thats a look best reserved for a rustic pub. Not Bay St. The coffee he brought was undrinkable. We were seated right at noon and did not get our food until 1pm. Food was fine. Service deplorable.

    The food never disappoints at Four. Delicious menu and I have never ordered something I haven't loved. The lamb salad and crusted tuna are some favorites. And the hummus appetizer is also fabulous (though should definitely be shared). The dessert shooters are the cutest ever!

    I met up with a couple of friends for a casual dinner after work. We shared Tapas (Pizza, Bison sliders, Good Olives, Tandoori Shrimp and Lamb with Pitas). I liked everything but the Tandoori shrimp which were a bit soggy and the olives which were all spiced with lemon - they would have been far better if they were left in plain brine. The service was good and our server was attentive. I felt we got good value for our money.

    Our party of two enjoyed our lunch at Four this week, but I would only go again if I had time to kill. We were seated immediately upon arriving for our reservation and ordered 2 mains only, no appetizers. Half an hour passed, and we still had not received our food nor had our server stopped by until we flagged another one down. This is not the first time I've experienced this at Four, in the busy 1hr for lunch environment a little more haste and attention would be appreciated.

    This is a great place for lunch. The restaurant has high tables and the mood is charged. Although the menu isn't as extensive as some other restaurants, there is something on there for everyone. The nice thing is that all their meals are lower in calories so you can have that appetizer and not worry about it. It is tucked away in Commerce Court but is really worth trying. I will definitely go back!

    My guest did ask for a double appetizer order of the calamari to make it a lunch and was happy that they could accommodate. Unfortunately, the order was not large enough to be a full meal. Being lunch, it was busy and we left with one hungry person. Everything else was wonderful and very quick, as usual.

    We went for Dinner, however this place is more geared towards a lunch hot spot. The place is nicely set up and lots of space, but we were 1 of 6 tables - the place was dead mid-week. The restaurant is located underground in the PATH and therefore likely more lively over lunch.

    I went here for a second date and I chose this restaurant based on reviews I found online. The most notable critique was the portion sizes... They were more than adequate and only 650 cals to boot! If you're an American-size dish lover, you will find them small, but no one needs an entire pound of pasta for themselves. You might as well stick to your East Side Mario's and save yourself the unwarranted disappointment. The ambiance was outstanding and our server was phenomenal. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and as a result we were more than happy to try his recommendations. Seven alcoholic drinks and four appetizers came out to less that $120 (tip included). Great find for the financial district!

    When we first arrived, our server was very attentive. As the place started to fill up and get busy, he stopped coming by. We sat for 20+ minutes with empty drink glasses and dirty dishes on our table. After trying to get his attention several times, he finally came back and didn't even acknowledge that he had neglected us for so long.

    I go to Four from time to time because it is convenient for a work lunch. We were disappointed with the service this time. While I appreciate that it was busy when we were there, it was very frustrating to have to wait a long time before our server came to our table to take our order, to have food runners come to our table a few times with the wrong food and also having our server disappear for most of our lunch. If we needed something she was nowhere to be found. She did not even check if everything was fine. We also had to wait for bill and again to get it paid. Lunch time is busy for patrons - we have to get back to the office. This is the second time we had the same server and both times, the service was not that great with her.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 2/26/2014
    If you are on a calorie restricted diet or just want something small this is a great place. The food is excellent... Jailhouse Salmon for example. Lots of flavours and textures but under 460 calories per meal. It is a great lunch place but also good at dinner and not as crowded but the ambience is a little bright. There were also several "parties" going on after work so you got to listen to speeches. There is a fairly good wine list, if you want to blow those calories. Service was good and fairly efficient as we were off to the theatre and had limited time
