Excellent food in a beautiful setting. Plenty of space between tables and the noise level was low, both providing an atmosphere conducive to conversation. Service was generally good but got a bit slow toward the end of dinner. Look forward to going back.

It's not as grand as the old location, but the vibe remains surprisingly similar, the service remains impeccable, and the food can't be improved on. For a Friday night, even close to Memorial Day, it was a little too easy to score a table. I hope business is more brisk during the week!

This is my GO TO restaurant to bring people for a very special meal. EVERYTHING about The Four Seasons Restaurant is perfect. From the moment you walk in to the moment you reluctantly leave, you will feel as though you are in an iconic, well-designed space. The food is delicious, the service impeccable, and the sense of being a part of history, unmatched.

We had a sumptuous 40th anniversary experience at The Four Seasons. I cannot go on enough about the duck! Food, service, and ambience is always the best! Thank you for your consistency (we ate there on our visit in October 2018), delicious food and wonderful welcoming service! Thank you Alex Bitter!

Surprisingly poor service. The waitress brought my friend the wrong drink. He nicely said he'd try it. She went away. He took a sip and left a filled glass on the table. The waitress didn't notice, didn't ask if anything was wrong. The wrong drink was on the table for the next two hours.

The Four Seasons has been the go-to restaurant, for my family, to celebrate special events for as long as I can remember. When my son turned 30, we wanted to maintain the tradition but went with some reservation as it was no longer the original. We were both pleasantly surprised to experience the same level of service and food we had come to expect. I will always miss the pool room but the owners have done an admirable job of maintaining the feel of the original restaurant, as much as possible, in the current space.

Its not the old four seasons- the service is better, the food is great, yes the prices are still high- but the food is so good- the cocktails are tasty- the best scallop ceviche and I normally don't like ceviche, it had a nice spice and crunch to it- they made a special cesaer salad for my young guests which I tasted and was perfect- the onion soup was light and tasted like fresh spring onions- the mushroom ravioli was light and fantastic, and the souffle of course the best- others at the table had the filet mignon which had excellent sauce, and the service was so nice- Ashley entertained our 2 younger guests- its pricey but predictably good.. Go now!!!

Very interesting. Food was exquisite (I had onion soup and Dover sole -- out of this world! my companions had the tuna burger . . . we shared a chocolate concoction and a semolina tart at dessert), and service was gracious and attentive, but not intrusive. Unfortunately, as a very long time patron of the "old" Four Seasons, comparisons to decor and ambiance are inevitable. The dining room in the new restaurant, though lovely, bears no resemblance to the lively and beautiful ambiance of the old Pool Room. Nor does the Bar Room -- which is very handsome -- rise to the level of "spectacular," as the Grill Room did. Having made these observations, I'll add that the Bar Room, which is very attractive and conveys a sense of spirited energy, and the Dining Room, which is beautiful and serene, are splendid as new venues. My only reservations . . . the restaurant foyer is gloomy (some large foliage and color are needed) and a bit confusing (an elegantly dressed gentleman had to point us to the doorway into the Bar Room, which is where the Host's stand is situated) . . . and the piped-in music in the Dining Room was too loud. I look forward to a return visit, knowing ahead of time that it will be a very special meal in beautiful spaces, only remotely reminiscent of the restaurant's former timeless design.

food was excellent, service as well. problem is ambience. room is not very inviting, no focal point. When a restaurant as storied as this allows dinner guests access wearing blue jeans and plaid shirts or polo shirts and sneakers--- Well I don't get it. We had many special nights at the original now all we have left are memories and the Duck

This elegant re-imagining of the original restaurant is flawless. From the entrance, which brings you into the gorgeous bar area (great for casual dining), to the walkway leading to the main dining room, resplendent with the sounds of nature (changing with each season) to the warm and welcoming staff, the comfortable "adult" furnishings and ambience, to the remarkable food. There is old-world charm, attention to every detail, and a feeling that you could spend the day and be very well cared-for.

My husband and I enjoyed dining at the original Four Seasons Restaurant for many years. This was our first time at the new location and we were not disappointed. The food and wine were exceptional. We were very happy to see Libardo, our favorite waiter from the old location. His service was impeccable. Alex Von Bidder stopped by our table a few times which we very much appreciated. Looking forward to our next dinner there.

In the age of upscale casual, its nice to know that you can still experience upscale food and service as you remember it. It's not the same space, but the feeling is still there. Our guests basked in the warm embrace of professional service as our food, beautifully presented, was served. So go and experience how a human being should be treated.....

Same name as the famous Four Seasons but nothing to do. Extremely expensive for well cooked but normal food. My wife ordered a starter as main course and the price was not the one of the starter, but 50$. Should you be looking for a “luxury “ restaurant in New York, choose another one. The service verygood and professional.
