Honored reservation right on time. Gave us table we asked for rather than one they had previously assigned us. Food was very good. Very pleasant outdoor dining.

We sat in the patio where the tables were separated properly and the service was impeccable. All the dishes were cooked perfectly. for example the pasta was al dense, a medium rare steak was pink inside a charred outside, just as I requested. The wait staff had excellent protective coverings, including gloves. A solo guitarist/singer added a final touch. It's a lovely place to take out of town guests or just to experience a quiet dinner in a green setting.

Drinks and pizza were terrible, with the pizza over cooked and the drinks not mixed well. We had been seated at the far side of the restaurant without other options.

Setting was lovely, but cadence of service was very off.
Waiter asked if we wanted bread and apps before drinks. When we ordered drinks, he asked my boyfriend what a Brooklyn was and asked him to repeat out the ingredients instead of researching it himself. The drinks were then 21$ which felt outrageous. Not more than 7 minutes after ordering our salads came, before drinks and bread. Then bread came, then drinks. It was a very confusing dining experience and not what I would expect from a restaurant of this caliber.

So, they clearly had to rework the brunch because of the current pandemic. It was nice, but obviously, not anywhere near their previous, glorious buffet.
Service was painfully slow. They offered us a second round of drinks as a result. We did not want more alcohol; so, they comped our parking.
Two of us are vegans - the first and second courses each had a vegan option, which was ok. The vegan dessert option was unfortunately sorbet. But I understand the difficulty in vegan options.
The music for brunch was loud and felt more like a club. Super awkward.
We will most likely wait for a post pandemic world and a return to a Four Seasons brunch we used to know before doing this again.

This used to be my favorite brunch place and we were so excited to see it reopen! We knew it wouldn’t be the “same” due to covid, but they no longer have a large amount of options in general for a pricy brunch. I get that things are different, but i wanted bacon and eggs and that wasn’t an option. Got the chicken and waffle and it was tasteless. The breakfast pizza was yummy tho (comparatively). Going to skip this for a while until they figure it out... besides the food everything else... the hotel, service and ambiance is phenomenal !

This was my first time dining with Culina. The ambiance was everything I could’ve asked for. That and drinks alone will be bringing me back. I was slightly disappointed when I didn’t get seated for my 9:30 reservation until 10:15, and when I approached the hostess stand, she was scrambling and dishonest about trying to get ahold of me. I was waiting 20 feet away in their chairs and had zero missed calls. But I understand things happen. The chicken wings were underwhelming but their foccacia and lasagna were lovely. I’ll definitely be returning.

Our server Jordan was great but we were seated just off the valet parking entrance instead of in the nicer area even though I had specified that my husband and I were celebrating my birthday. There was plenty of room in the nicer patio and there were many open reservations online when I booked it. Maybe we didn't look stylish enough?? My beet and burrata salad was wonderful but the octopus was overcooked and mushy. My husband ordered the cheese pizza with truffles (extra cost) but they tried to upsell him and say you need 2 oz to taste it. He said one ounce was fine. It arrived with large truffle shavings but they had absolutely no taste. Overall, a $200 disappointment for a birthday dinner but our serve tried his best to make it as good as it could be.

Service was very, very slow. Food was mediocre. My burger was burned, but I did not want to wait even longer by sending it back. Salad dressing had no taste. My friend’s pizza crust was burned black. I’m not sure if it was supposed to be “charred-style,” but she found it inedible. Can’t believe this is the restaurant at the Four Seasons. Very average.
