A word from Park Avenue Winter
In keeping with our tradition of transformation and discovery, Fourth Wall Restaurant’s Park Avenue has changed to Winter for the season. The restaurant has received a complete overhaul-adapting the space’s décor and menu to welcome Winter. Chef Kevin Lasko created the seasonally focused American menu for Park Avenue Winter, offering innovative takes on classic dishes like, Gorgonzola Dolce Ravioli with Acorn Squash & Cranberries. Additionally, to honor one the celebratory nature of the season, Lasko offers the Winter Gatherings menu. Meant to be enjoyed amongst friends, this menu offers dishes to be enjoyed by two or more, like Truffle Roasted Chicken with Foie Gras Stuffing. Executive pastry chef and James Beard Award winner Richard Leach created a variety of confections for our dessert menu, focusing on seasonal ingredients and impeccable techniques. Dessert items include Winter Spice Cake with handcrafted Brown Butter Ice Cream and Caramelized Apples & Cranberries.

    We have been dining there at a number of "seasons" and it has always been fantastic. The concept of the seasons is unique and the food just fabulous. We brought our sons and their wives/girlfriends there for a Xmas get together . . . could not ask for a better place to share time together. Thank you all for a terrific evening, with excellent food and service. So sorry to see you go . . .was so looking forward to keeping the tradition.

    Went for an early lunch with a good friend. The main dining room was perfectly decorated for winter. The menu was equally as suitable, as it is seasonally adjusted. Service was welcoming. The variety and taste of the food was wonderful. I would go back anytime.

    We have been to your restaurant about 5 times and have had a good experiences. However our last time we were seated up stairs and it had NO ambience. Two of our dishes were cold (Dover sole) and one you had run out of (apple dessert). The room was crowded and loud. We were disappointed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 12/15/2013
    The brunch is great. Good selection of sweet and savory. Be careful of the price fixe and make sure to go when really hungry - there is no a la carte option and ordering an appetizer and entree (plus the awesome bread basket, which is delectible muffins, rolls and breads) is a LOT of food. Service was a bit patchy - it was not clear to us who our server was and after we ordered, a server (who was not the person who took our order) came over to discuss the menu with us.

    We loved the relaxed feel of this very thematic restaurant - Winter theme. You felt at home as soon as you arrived and were taken to your table. The service provided by both our waiters was very attentive and extremely friendly The Bloody Mary's were possibly the best we have tasted and the presentation of them was excellent! The Kale & Manchego Salad with chorizo and chestnut honey was amazing as was the Filet Mignon, RoastedShallot Glaze with sunny side-Up Eggs. As we were visitors to NYC from the UK it is not likely that we will be back for some time, but we will visit NYC again and we will return. Highly recommended should you wish to spoil yourself to a first class brunch at fair prices.

    We were spending the night in the city for a holiday party and decided to go to Park Avenue Winter once we learned that it would be moving to a new location next year. We were not disappointed by our choice. We had a fantastic meal in a very elegant but approachable atmosphere. If the Broccoli and Cheetos are available as a side when you go, do not pass them up!

    As always at Park Avenue, the food was delicious while the service left something to be desired. The butternut squash soup is out of this world, & the porcini bordelaise on the grilled sirloin was the most delicious thing I've tasted in awhile. I also enjoyed the Park Avenue Royale drink. As for the service, the hosts got confused & one of my guests was waiting alone at the table for 10 minutes while I was at the bar - when my reservation time hit, I asked the host again if anyone had arrived which is when I found out what happened. Also, at the bar, my other friend & I were literally the only people sitting there & it took the bartender a full 5 minutes to acknowledge us. Our server was very nice however & helped to redeem his coworkers.

    This restaurant was a real disappointment. Several of the appetizers missed the mark and the entrees were only fair. The salmon entree was a collection of ingredients that didn't come together, including mandarin oranges which appeared to have come from a can. Save yourself some money and go somewhere less full of itself.

    Park Avenue Winter is open with a new Winter menu celebrating the decade of fine entrees. The current menu celebrates all the "bests" from the Chef over the last decade. Whether it is the Dover Sole or the Filet you will not be disappointed. The breadbasket overflows with flatbreads, raisin breads and has limitless refills! The atmosphere is a dramatic effort to set the scene of winter, spring summer or fall depending on the time of the year. The crowd is a bit older but very sophisticated. This is a great place to have lunch with a friend or dinner with your fave. I can't wait to see where the Restaurant lands. Maybe they will take up space across Park Avenue. Lets Hope they stay in the neighborhood!

    What a disappointment. We love this restaurant, but they are winding down, and it shows. Their last night is December 31, and they have been very mysterious about their future. In the meantime, they changed over to Winter with no changes in the menu. They kept all old favorites, and I suspect the Chef has already moved on. The prices have gone up. You can't even find a wine for less than $60 now. We ordered an open face Lobster Club because how could you mess that up? We are sad to see one of our favorite, tried and true restaurants deteriorate at the end. Instead, they should go out with a bang and do things right.

    Restaurant needs a face lift, maybe understandable as they are moving soon. Appetizers were very good, mains just ok. And what's with the walk your own coat up the stairs and down the hall? 3 people are standing at the Maitre D's station, but the old folks with a cane had to walk their own coats back. My companion met me at the table with her coat, the hostess refused to take it; she had to walk back through the restaurant, up the stairs and down the hall to check. It struck me and my companion as inhospitable, and we weren't the old folks! Other than that, the service was excellent.

    Very disappointed. The food was very good. But at a restaurant of this caliber, I can't believe you don't get a proper server. We rarely saw the same server twice, and the one who took our orders could not speak enough English to communicate. We had questions about some items on the menu----the harried waiter seemed reluctant to answer, and he spoke so fast and in such heavily accented, halting English, I had no idea what he said. This continued throughout. Then, then bill required two (2) re-dos to remove a string of $20 glasses of wine we never ordered. The food was delicious, but overpriced---if you're paying $37-58 for an entree, other elements of the dining experience should be excellent. Not here.

    The staff working in the cloak room was not friendly. No smiles or any greetings. Mixed up our jackets and our scarves were all over the floor. The food was really average. I am not a picky eater and I do not have high standards for food. I rarely spend $95 for a dinner but I can say that I've had something much better with a price way lower than this. I couldn't even finish half of my main and dessert. Overall, really disappointed and with a bill more than 230 makes it worse. . I hope the restaurant can work on the service and their menu. P.S They only realised that they forgot to give us table mats before dessert. I expect to have better service with that hefty price. The good thing was that the receptionist was really nice.

    My husband, mom, & daughter ate here for this Thanksgiving. It was a pre-fixed holiday menu with a set rate which was a little pricy but not as high as some other restaurants I had looked at prior. The ambiance was beautiful! The staff was warm & welcoming and they were able to accommodate our early arrival & seat us. My daughter also had a pre-fixed rate & thoroughly enjoyed her meal and Shirley temples! The staff was knowledgeable in suggesting delicious wine pairing with our meals. Our service and meal was excellent! Our appetizers were regular seasonal menu items which included gnocchi, pumpkin soup, & tuna. These 3 were outstanding!

    The food here was great. Everything on the menu was phenomenal and I would highly recommend going there. The service was good. We had to ask about the specials, ask about the specially named items on the menu, had to ask for the check after sitting there for 15 minutes and the coffee ordered before dessert was served after the dessert came and after I had to remind the staff.
