    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.

  • Each Meal Under 460 Calories
    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

    Have had lunch many times here. The menu is healthy and gluten free options are available which is great. Usually the taste doesn't lack even though menu is 650 calories or less for each dish. Had the halibut and guest had salmon this time. The food took a long time to come out, wasn't up to par vs. prior experiences and it took a very long time for the server to reappear and put my credit card through when it came time to settle. Not great for lunch time crowd that needs to head back to the office. Not what I expected given past positive experiences on food and service.

    Dined on 2/19/2014
    The Grilled Beef Tenderloin was done to perfection (medium rare). I've been to Four twice before and the service, ambience and food are always consistent. Even though the Olympic Men's Hockey team were playing their first game of the Olympics the restaurant was not too crowded so the noise level wasn't too bad. Odd though that even though the place wasn't packed I couldn't get a reservation for noon but had to book for 11:45 AM instead. Wasn't a problem for our host or our server, I just thought it was odd. All in all Four is a decent place for a mid-price range business lunch.

    We got seated right away and got water quickly as well. After looking at the menu we made our food choices and the server agreed with all of them. I had the crab cake and it was amazing. My boyfriend has the hummus and it was also great with lots of olive oil drizzled on top. Our second round of food came out and it was quite bland. The homemade corn tortillas were about 5 mm thick and the filling was not seasoned. The Thai chicken dish was also under seasoned. I also had the peach negroni. It was strong so in my opinion that makes a good drink ;)

    Made a reservation for a quick bit before the raptors game. We started with the soup I had the Malaysian Coconut Soup which was very nice with lots of vegetables and chicken, I would definitely recommend it it was very tasty with a vibrant broth. My husband had the soup of the day which was a sweet potato and corn puree which was also very nice. I then had the spinach gnocchi which was very nice light and tasty. My husband had the mini bison sliders which he said where very good. We did not have dessert and coffee but we would have had time and I know the desserts are great if you like a small bit

    I was pleased that all items on the menu were 650 calories or less. I also liked that they use very little dairy. I was pleased with the calamari and crab cake appetizers. They were excellent and tasty. My daughter enjoyed the jailhouse salmon. I was only disappointed in both the red and yellow beet salad and the miso romaine salad.. Just not up to par.

    Had occasion to join a friend at this great spot beneath Far Niente. I have always appreciated the fact that they catered to different tastes and different diets, including gluten free. The best event is dessert...instead of serving outsize desserts that few care to indulge, Four provides your choice of shot-glass sized desserts, so that you can end lunch with a sweet without feeling stuffed..brilliant! And delicious! A great vibe, not too noisy...just right all around!

  • Not just a gimmick
    BusyLawyer
    Dined on 1/10/2014
    I went to FOUR with a business colleague of mine half-expecting that the "under 600 calories" advertisement was a gimmick and that the food would not be so great. Diners might put up with sub-par quality for the enticement of less calories. I was pleasantly surprised with simple but good food, fancily presented, at a reasonable price particularly since we are talking about a restaurant in the PATH at the Financial District. There are also truly vegetarian and gluten free options. This is a spot you can take picky eaters, people with dietary restrictions, and people who like simple and fresh ingredients, but it's fancy enough for a client lunch.

    Dined on 1/3/2014
    Four is perfect for lunch, whether it is a business, personal or date lunch. The food is creative, well prepared and presented, and best of all - the portions are a 'normal size' (read: not oversized), as well as healthy and lowish on the caloric scale (if that matters to you). The service is even better than the food. Although the room is decorated in a minimalist style (concrete floors, bare walls, dim lighting) it is on the quiet side, even when filled with a chatty lunch time crowd. Four is a really great, quiet getaway restaurant with fair prices in the downtown financial core.
