The MOST wonderful brunch
The MOST wonderful brunch in the DC area...perhaps on the east coast. DO NOT miss this. Be advised, a bit expensive compared to others but the seafood is NOT to be missed. WONDERFUL

THE ABSOLUTE BEST!
Brunch at the Four Seasons hotel was absolutely amazing! Probably the best I have ever had! The service, the food, the variety, and the Italian coffee...were all out of this world!! But then again I guess that is to be expected from a FIVE start hotel. I will definitely be visiting again!....P.S make sure you are hungry when you go as the food varietals are abundant!!

Happy Birthday to us
I surprised my fiance with Sunday brunch for his birthday. He was blown away by the distinguished but comfortable and airy setting, the array of amazing food, and the freshness and quality of the food. Favorites were the raw bar, the bottomless mimosas and coffee, and the fantastical, Wonka-like "dessert room." Our service was attentive but not intrusive, always present for drink refills without being asked, and fulfilled our every request promptly (eg, ordered a side of pancakes, asked for new napkins, cleared "finished" plates). The price was very expensive, but my fiance and I were thrilled with our entire experience, and he wants to make this an annual tradition from here forward.

We wanted somewhere nice to celebrate my 50th birthday, and brunch at Seasons could not have been more special. Since it was Easter Sunday, I'm not sure how it compares with a normal Sunday brunch but the quality of the food and the attention to detail was spectacular.

My friend and I take each other out for breakfast on our respective birthdays, and we ALWAYS go to Seasons. The food is excellent (though expensive!) and our waiter this year was wonderful--attentive, charming and not intrusive. The hostess is always gracious and makes us feel as if we are valued guests.

Brunch in DC
We've tried several brunches in this area in the past 10 years hoping to find something similar to the Four Seasons Fountain in Philadelphia. This is the first that even came close. The seafood station was outstanding and the Korean BBQ was a delicious interpretation of classic Korean BBQ.

Amazing but expensive
This brunch was absolutely incredible. Clearly lived up to its name as the best in DC area. The dessert room was filled with delicious choices & the seafood and salad choices were all yummy. The bill was rather shocking, though. Terribly pricey at $80 a person. Even though we loved the food, the price tag would make us think twice about going again.

A DC Brunch Must!
The Seasons once again impressed me! Our food was perfect and the service exemplory. I had two new guests join me and they were thrilled with the flavors - a few highlights, the lobster salad with crustini, the crab with mango salsa, the Beef in Cafe au lait sauce, the white and green asparagus salad with pecorino cheese, the lamb, and the mac and cheese with scallions and goat cheese, and the desserts were impeccable too - and it may sound simple but the cafe mocha was excellent too. From being greeted at the Valet, down to the restaurant where we were treated as if we were important royalty, the experience of dining at The Seasons is the ultimate brunch destination; please do get there and experience divine decadence as only they can do!

Best Sunday Brunch in DC
The podium experience was underwhelming. We had to change our table because the initial assigned table was unstable and wobbly. Once settled, the experience was exceptional. Selection was varied and exquisite. The seafood selection was by far the best! The Korean station did not mesh with the rest of the offerings. The brunch could do without it. Maybe it should be a crepe station. The cappuccino was not part of the brunch and had an additional price. That was tacky. Overall the experience was exceptional.

Great people watching
Went here for lunch May 11. Only reason it didn't get outstanding service was that the waitron must not have taken note of who ordered what. Generally, that would be a big mark against, but the service from the valet to the greeter & staff was all so good.
I had corn bisque & the shrimp & crab salad. Everything was fresh & good.
Best part was the people watching. Lots of crazy handbags, international people, business people & the casual well-to-do.
Overall, a great experience that I'll do again.

Mother's Day Brunch
This is our second year in a row at Seasons for Mother's Day brunch. The service improved greatly. The atmosphere was much more elegant than last year where everything seemed overpopulated and chaotic. The food is generally very good for a buffet/stationed brunch.

The best brunch in town
Yes, it's expensive, but there is no question Seasons is the best place in DC for brunch. The seafood options alone could make it worth the money for me, but there are always interesting choices at other stations. I'm not big on dessert, but I always have to leave room here. Splurge - you won't regret it.

Best brunch ever, highest price
We booked our brunch before an event at Lisner Auditorium. The Brunch was great but the cost was higher than I expected. I thought $50, but at $80 a person, the full price was $104 after adding tax and the compulsory 20% tip. Despite my price gripe, the brunch, service and individual attention was superb. One of our guests is vegan. The kitchen prepared a vegan meal and fabulous dessert. I highly recommend Seasons for Sunday brunch for special occassions.

My friend and I spent about two hours grazing on creative, beautiful, and delicious foods. I like the way different courses were set up at different stations throughout the dining room, and the desserts were set out in a separate room. The cold seafood was my favorite as it had large shrimp, crab claws, raw oysters, scallops and more. There was an excellent selection of salads and a delicious cold soup made with melons. Hot entrees included lamb chops cooked a perfect medium rare. The dining staff were attentive, but not obtrusive, and there was a bottomless flute of mimosas. I could go on forever, but take my word this brunch is an excellent dining experience and well worth the price.

Wonderful Celebration at Brunch
Four Season's is always a good bet if you need a place to eat good food and spend the day chatting with friends. The atmosphere is relaxed and elegant. There is a large variety of different dishes and options to suit every appetite. They use plenty of organic produce. The cheese selection is even better than before! The service is warm and friendly but mistakes can be made. Just make sure to tell them and they will correct it accordingly. If you live in the Greater DC area or are staying at the hotel, there is no reason you do not try their brunch at least once.

The food was absolutely exquisite and the service was impeccable. It is just what I have come to expect from the Four Seasons!

Our group (4 people) had a brunch at Seasons restaurant of Four Seasons Washington D.C.
It is definitely great place to have a brunch with some very-closed friends.
Every food was so good quality. In particular, the Lobster salad was so fresh and delightful.
The only point you should know is that the price of this place is $80.00 per person. I expected total $320.00 for 4 people, but I spent over $400.00 including tip and tax. It is not a small money just for a brunch.
This place is exactly best place to enjoy luxurious brunch, but you should think about the price. Be aware!
I want to recommend this place for special day which is eligible for luxury brunch.

My party of three enjoyed the most sophisticated, diverse, consistently high quality, and great tasting brunch ever experienced. The service was also outstanding. The only slight oversight was that they forgot to mention that there is a separate dessert room; we almost missed the most amazing part. Our only regret is that the price is so high ($100/person for food, tax, and modest tip) that we can not afford to return for a very very very long time.

Breakfast at the Seasons
I read the review on their breakfast on a tourist magazine and their reviews were right on point, one of the best!

The best brunch in DC
I always love brunch at Seasons. Sure, it's a splurge, but they do everything so well, it's worth it, particularly if you think of it in terms of it being your main meal of the day. (Seriously, who can think about dinner after this?) Today the salads were a little disappointing but the seafood bar was as always the highlight. I usually don't eat dessert, but you have to leave room here, because there are so many great choices. While always very good, the service today was just perfect. Champagne glass was always filled, plates were removed and silverware replaced the minute we were done, napkins folded the second we stepped away, all done with a smile and a friendly word. ignore the price - this has to be on your to do list.

Perfect - as always!
Congratulations! As always, The Seasons never fails to amaze me- and Fifi is the best! I had two new guests with me this past Sunday and once again, the experience was exceptional; or as my friend put it "Sheer decandence." Some places with a buffet may struggle with temperatures or freshness, but The Seasons flavors are always crisp and savory, just like it was made for you alone. The seafood is second to none, the dessert room continues to be the best I have ever seen in the whole country - and then there is the service- from being greeted at the door until you leave, you will believe you are the only one, and the most important customer they have ever had! Ask for Fifi - she makes every experience special! A DC must- dining perfection!
