Nice ambiance and views of the city. Waiters prompt and friendly. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced for the serving sizes. The chicken noodle soup was a bit salty for my liking, however.

Food were overpriced, we ordered the Ribeye, it had a gamy taste to it. Server took the steak back, and told us it was because the steak they used is the milk cow. Service was very slow, we were sitting there and waiting for service the whole time.

It took asking four people To have the shade lifted so I could see out the window
I was very clear about being gluten-free and they bought the small serving of mussels and clams with two huge slices of bread on top
The fruit salad was also a very small serving and the cheesecake dessert was inedibly pastry.
Disappointed,
Mary

The breakfast meal itself was acceptable. More on the ordinary spectrum.
The atmosphere and scenery was more exciting.
The service is nice.

If you are staying at the four seasons then it’s really convenient.

The service was not Four Seasons. I frequently have business breakfast at this hotel. It took 20 minutes and 3 request to get my espresso. My client ordered a second cappuccino and a mystery milk coffee came out we had to request replacement. The servers were not their usual courteous staff.

I hope next visit is better

Went to MKT on New Year's Day. Hostess seated in a cute round booth. I was expecting a full brunch menu but they offered a brunch buffet with a few brunch dishes a la carte. We went for the a la carte dishes - the Migas con Huevos and the Fried Chicken Sliders (with a side of fries) were both delicious. Tried the Black Forest Torte (a big round ball of chocolate covered cherry-mousse-cake) was unexpected, a must try if you like cherries.

Service was adequate, a little sedate. Would have liked a bit more New Year pep.

Actually because the dining room doesn't take breakfast reservations, I ate there not the bar which opens at 11am. You receive a complimentary newspaper. Peet's coffee is served which I had with ruby grapefruit juice. My meal was soft scrambled eggs and yes they did come soft scrambled. I ordered bacon to go with tge roasted new potatoes. The toast is from an artisan bakery in Oakland. So with my sourdough I had frssh butter with strawberry jam. The wait staff was very attentive. Plus the lobby was gorgeously decorated for Christmas.

Crab salad looked old. I still ate it then complained. I should have rejected it right away. Mostly romaine lettuce that didn’t look fresh.

The waiter never came back to ask how our meal was or I would have told him right away.

Other three dishes looked fine.

The food was very good, the room lovely and the service mostly excellent. I am withholding the final star because of the menu - very heavily weighted towards meat. I do not eat meat and would gladly have had some of the fish on the menu - but all of it was cooked with bacon in some way. I ended up with chicken which thankfully did not have any bacon with it, but not my first or second choice.

Very nice salmon dish with Brussel sprouts and apricot compote for lunch. It didn’t seem to pricey at $28 (same as a Niçoise salad). Service was seamless and unobtrusive. I sat with a friend catching up for two hours and they didn’t hustle us along.

Everything was OK, but nothing was above average to make us return. Our App came out and mostly gone before we were given our drinks and bread service. I felt like our waitress was the only one hustling. Drink was too tart, and food (scallops and tort) was again ok, but kinda bland.
