A word from Quattro Restaurant and Bar - Four Seasons Hotel
The Italian word for "four", the name is in line with the architectural design of the restaurant as a large light airy room with glass on three sides. The room is lit dramatically at night and illuminates the front of the hotel entrance. Quattro features Northern Italian seasonal and light cuisine with a fresh Cal-Italian twist at breakfast and lunch. The dinner menu is comprised of contemporary Italian cuisine featuring locally grown produce and artisan products from Northern California farms since opening. Attentive, unobtrusive service compliments the exquisite menu and an extensive wine list which includes predominantly California wines with many boutique offerings and an extensive Italian selection.

  • "Having been to this property a few times in the past was slightly disappointed with the different dinner menu. They use to have an amazing chicken dish with indian flavors that were spot on. Instead a different menu and we had the salmon and brazzino and for those items , I thought the flavors and supporting items were good but the fish of the salmon was off. For a limited menu might try their steak or other offerings. Overall good experience."

  • "This hotel seems to cater for business traffic, so it's restaurant is pleasantly quiet at weekends. We picked two appetizers and three of the smaller primo (pasta) courses, and a whimsical "Frutti di mare" dessert. We normally trade dished back and forth, but they were kind enough to split everything without charge, so the effect was of 5 small courses, all beautifully presented, plus that dessert. Great food. Friendly service. Just south of $200 including a bottle of wine."

  • "We made reservations at Quattro mentioning it was our 17th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival we were given customized menus with "Happy 17th Anniversary" printed on top, the staff congratulated us, and seated us at a very nice table. Yes, the menu was not extensive, however the quality of ingredients and the preparation was excellent. Quattro provides a list with all the local food suppliers, and I was impressed to see they were mostly local organic farms, within 80 miles from Palo Alto. I ordered the Dorade, my husband had the lamb chops and they were both perfectly cooked. For dessert,we had a plate of chocolate dipped berries and mini cakes on the house, with a happy anniversary wish written in chocolate. Great dinner overall."

  • "My husband and I both ordered the bone-in rib-eye steak. They were cooked to perfection! The best steak we've ever had, very tasty and tender. The appetizers and desserts were exceptional as well. Service was impeccable. Chris, our server, did a wonderful job waiting on our table, as well as the rest of the Quattro staff. This is definitely a place where they value excellent customer service and delicious food. A great experience, we will be coming back and recommending to friends and family."

  • "My husband and I went to Quattro for a special occasion. We found the service very attentive but the menu was limited. Since we're not major meat eaters (though not vegetarians), there were relatively few items on the menu from which to chose (apart from carb loading). The food was OK but fussy. My sense, judging by the people at the restaurant, is that it is primarily a venue for business entertaining: lots of young people, in business attire, networking or entertaining colleagues and clients. Obviously we picked the wrong place for a romantic dinner!"

  • "Great dinner- a birthday celebration for 6 adults. Every course was interesting and delicious. Highlights were the mussels, the spaghetti, the prime rib, and some freshly made doughnut-like pastry basket- covered in cinnamon sugar and served with an exquisite caramel sauce. Will definitely return! The best restaurant in the area."

  • "We had a delightful business dinner here. The chilled asparagus soup was the best chilled soup I have ever had. The beef tenderloin was beautifully presented on a bed of dark risotto (?) and could be easily cut with a fork. Nice cappuccinos and many gelato flavors. Not inexpensive but worth every penny we spent. The service was very attentive but never interrupting our conversation. Ask for the cheese (Parmesan perhaps) cracker. Yummy! We will definitely be back again soon!!!"

  • "The Four Seasons' restaurant, Quattro, just keeps being amazing, but the brunch is still yet to be discovered. I can't think of a better breakfast in town...the setting is lovely, parking a breeze--valet if you like that, is available--inside or outside seating, lovely either way. AND the people are there to make your day fantastic. I dare you to find a better breakfast on the Peninsula. We had the crab cake Benedict & the corned beef & hash. You get your own little carafe of wonderful coffee, so no waiting or begging for refills. This place is an oasis. No fighting for parking downtown, you can reserve online, and if you can afford to waste a day, why not try the bottomless mimosas or blood Mary? "

  • "We had a very enjoyable dinner. I ordered a glass of Prosecco to start, while my husband had wine. The Prosecco needed to be chilled, but I didn't mind the wait. I had the little gem salad, which was charmingly presented and was quite good. My husband had the asparagus soup, which was also very nicely presented, and delicious (often with beautifully arranged food, the accent can be more on looks than flavor). I am happy to report that thses dishes were both lovely and delicious. We both had an order of the gnocchi with broccoli and cheddar cheese - we both enjoyed the dish. We then ordered the tenderloin, which was cooked perfectly (medium rare, just a bit of char on the edges). All in all, a wonderful meal. We had birthday cake at home. "

  • "We had mussels appetizer, Halibut and Dorade for main entrees, and Tajiran pasta. The mussels had too strong paprika flavor. Some of the mussels were overcooked. It came to the table warm, not steaming hot. I had better mussels at The Fifth Floor and other places. The Dorade fish entree was a little disappointing. It was fishy. Both halibut and the Dorade did not have a firm and flaky texture, which fish meat has when very fresh. The portions were small. As main entrees, the fish were only over a small amount of veggies, with no rice, potatoes or We had to order a side dish of pasta, the Tajiran, which came as a very small portion of thin pasta. "

  • "I brought my some family members who were visiting from Europe. My uncle who's been very many great restaurants all over the world in the last few years commented that it was one of the best meal he's ever had. Everyone loved it. The ambiance is great, the food is excellent and the service matches. It is a little bit noisy, there are a lot of business types dining here so there's some loud conversations going on and it's a big place. I'm not a dessert person normally but at this place they are *exceptional*. I won't spoil the surprises but they are 10/10. "

  • "Friends took Mr. Charles and me here for a belated birthday dinner. Everything was perfect, beautifully presented, nicely paced, and delicious. The chef was accommodating to our various requests. We all loved our various dishes. And the wonderful server (sorry I don't have his name) brought out a lovely birthday dessert treat which we devoured! It was my first visit to Quattro, and I greatly look forward to returning."

  • "Our prior experience at Quattro was amazing. Dinner last Sat evening was a bit underwhelming. The menu is quite limited. The seafood/seawood pasta lobster dish small plate lacked flavor and depth & the seafood consister of one pinky sized shrimp. Other dishes didn't stand out. We ordered a bottle of wine but were sold to by the glass."

  • "Went to Quattro because I was entertaining business associates from out of town, and they were concerned about the time and getting back to SFO, so picking Quattro right at University and 101 was ideal. I've been here before for drinks but this was the first time I had dinner here. The menu is short and organized to enjoy a starter, primi and secondi off the menu. I had the cold asparagus soup which was bright green, fresh, clean tasting. It was served over a burratta cheese which gave great mouthfeel as well. my friends each had the mussels which was great. We all shared the tagliatini with ocean prawns and a lobster sauce - wonderful sauce with just enough brine on the prawns to make it very satisfying as a primi. Chix and prime rib after"

  • "We've returned to Quattro many times, usually to celebrate special events---birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Each time the food has been excellent and the service superb. Whenever we have alerted them that this is a special occasion, they have surprised us with lovely touches. On my husband's birthday, they printed a special menu with his name on top congratulating him on his birthday. This time was our anniversary. The hostess greeted us with a 'congratulations', the server welcomed us on our anniversary and the chef gave us a complimentary plate of dessert goodies to help us celebrate. This was all on top of a delicious meal. We can highly recommend Quattro's as a lovely place to dine and a wonderful place to celebrate special events."

  • "Quattro is a wonderful restaurant for any special occasion. While enjoying a glass of wine, we had the delicious kale and caesar salad with yogurt dressing, lamb chops and pork chops. It was all wonderful. Dessert was amazing. The Bombolini (Italian Donuts)which you dip in a chocolate sauce or caramel salt sauce was great. Presentation of the dishes were very creative and we had a memorable evening. Annie-Rose Chung, the general manager also made sure we were enjoying ourselves and also told us about the story of the sculptures in the restaurant of the Four Seasons."

  • "I've had several meals at Quattro before last night which were beautifully presented and tasted as good as they looked. Unfortunately, when I brought a friend to Quattro's featured "tasting" menu purchased on TravelZoo, the dinner was very disappointing. The food was beautifully presented, the service attentive, but the food was … at best mediocre. The kale and brussels sprout salad was an exception, but the pasta, dessert and other courses not up to the level which one would expect from a restaurant of Quattro's standing. Also, an 18.5 gratuity was automatically added onto the bill. A gentle reminder for a table of two is fine, but an automatic charge was not gracious and not well received."
