    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.

    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!!

    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.

    Presentation of high quality food was so pretty in the different buffet stations (seafood, breakfast, salad, dessert, cheese, and 'hot' area). A $$$$, but delicious brunch for a special occasion with endless mimosas and bloody Mary's. Seasons was bustling with dining guests from our reservation at 11 (until we left at 2 because we took our time to enjoy the food and celebration). We celebrated our Mom's 75th birthday at the Seasons restaurant. If you want a window view, the Seasons staff recommend strongly to request that in your reservation. #bestbrunchever

    Best Brunch ever. Unbelievable selection. Pace yourself and ignore the things you can get at home...otherwise you are going to miss out on some wonderful gourmet food. Believe it or not the best thing for me was a spicy Kimchi, Pork and Noodle concoction...a great surprise and something I certainly was not expecting to find at brunch.

    The food was phenomenal. There are so many small plates to select from -- each one is a work of art. This is a very expensive brunch ($80 per person), so it is definitely for a special occasion. The decor is very modern and sleek. I personally prefer more elegant and traditional decor and find this decor cold and uncomfortable. I miss the decor they used to have. It used to have more personality and they had couches making it very inviting. It used to be romantic, but is far from romantic now. Still, the food quality is the best you will find anywhere. It is like going to a gourmet restaurant and trying a little bit of everything they have. I just hope they remodel to add more elegance!!

    Seasons is the best Sunday brunch in D.C. There is a wide variety of food choices from the fresh seafood to breakfast choices to savory foods. All of it deliciously prepared. Plus the dessert room has amazingly wicked choices, all in small bites so you can sample, sample, sample. As you would expect, the service is impeccable. This is the place to go for brunch.

    We always enjoy brunch at Seasons, but this visit was even better than their usual excellence. The service was great - glasses always filled, plates removed promptly and silverware replaced quickly. The food was wonderful, with the minor exception of desserts being very good but no one wow item. Yes, it's expensive, but it's worth it, particularly since it's the main (and maybe only) meal of the day.

    I could not have picked a better place than Seasons to celebrate my 26th birthday. From the moment we walked in to the lobby we were greeted with smiles and such great attitudes from all the staff.My only complaint is that our table was extremely close to people on each side of us which made it a little difficult to get in and out. When we walked into the room with all of the food I was stunned. Everything was set up beautifully and the portions were perfect. If I were to reccomend one dish, it would be the scallop with a peach glaze... It was the best scallop i have ever had. Not to take away from the delicious crab claws, steamed shrimp and citrus salad. Oh and dessert,the cheesecake is to die for! I cant wait to go back for my 27th!

    The Thanksgiving Day brunch was everything one expects from the Four Seasons. There were no lines, no waits, excellent service and food to delight everyone. The inventive combinations of vegetables in the cold salads were amazing. The seafood was fabulous and the crab cakes memorable. Superlatives can not convey the experience. This place is first on our Christmas list.

    Although we thorougly enjoyed our brunch at Seasons, we were somewhat disappointed. The food looked amazing but the taste was a little average. The seafood and cheese selections were wonderful. But the main entrees, quail, lamb, mexican bar were just average. And as beautiful as all the desserts were, we didn't find an "ooh-ahh" dessert amongst them. And the salad bar was varied but again there was nothing that either of us said "I have to get more of that"! I would like to say that we absolutely love their other restaurant Bourbon Steak! Always magnificent!

    The Seasons is the premiere Brunch in the DC area! I have been to others, but The Seasons supercedes the rest. Our server, Fifi, remembered me from previous trips, and made my guests feel like she knew them too. Her service is without comparison, ask for her when you dine there! And the food continues to be of such high calibre, it must be hard to continually top themselves, but they do it - the lamb chops were succulent, the organic salads popped with flavor; of course, the seafood bar is the best ever, and the desserts are "to die for"- one must have the deconstructed pumpkin pie and Tiramisu. Find a reason to celebrate - get to The Seasons immediately! Ask for Fifi!

    Recent visit was about the sixth time we have gone to Seasons for the fabulous Sunday brunch, and it only gets better. Skip the bacon-and-omelet offerings, which are only ordinary, and focus on the beautiful seafood bar, the salad bar, the special of the week (the New Orleans special shrimp and grits was out of this world) and the desserts, which come in tasting sizes. All of which is accompanied by endless prosecco.

    This was a Sunday Brunch with Endless champagne @ $80-85 per person. The waiters were not as attentive as I remember 1.5 years ago. The waiters seemed over-worked and not as happy to do their jobs. I had to keep asking for refills on my champagne. When I did ask, I felt as though I was bothering them. They offered Seafood Gumbo, but it took them 15 mins. to bring me a soup spoon. By then the gumbo was cold. Overall, the food is still excellent and the ambiance was great...just as I remembered. They just need to hire waiters who over-excel in customer service.

    We usually enjoy brunch at the Four Seasons. Unfortunately, this time there were limited options for my husband and I, considering we don't eat red meat and pork. There was meat in everything, including literally the only green vegetable on the menu - bacon covered green beans. At 3pm, when the buffet officially shut down, waiters disappeared, tables were broken down, and we couldn't find our server to pay the check. Even the management was sitting in booths eating their lunches from the buffet. For 80 dollars per person for brunch, one would thing I could get a little grace period without having tables broken down in front of me. The food we could eat was good, but service lacking. I'm not sure I'll be back.

    Seasons bruch met my expectations. I have heard many foodies talked about it so the bar was very high. Yet it managed to convince me that without any doubt it is the best brunch in DC. While expensive, you truly get what you pay for: cebiche (authentic Peruvian), curried scallops, spicy tuna cones, fresh burrata, jamón serrano, carne asada, amazing pastries, awesome desserts, etc. Perhaps the only thing missing was macarons for a grand finale. I will certainly bring the family back. Wife already asking.

    We were impressed the moment we walked in! There was a quiet unrushed ambience. No lines, very comfortable and calm. The food was amazing! No skimping on the incredients for a seafood omlete or the raw oyster bar. There was a New Orleans influence going on where several dishes known to New Orleans were featured. The only thing missing was live music. It would have been nice to have a harpist, a violinist or something very special. Be ready to eat a lot, and pay a hefty price. Cocktails were great but optional considering that the Champagne was free flowing.
