What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.2

The Grill is the revamp of the legendary Four Seasons restaurant, run by the people behind Carbone. It’s very similar, very expensive, and worth it.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

We were seated across from a open service area with servers streaming in and out. It was noisy and obnoxious and possibly the worst dining experience I’ve ever had in my life at a nice restaurant. We dine out in cities all over the world 3-5 nights a week. There were quite a few nicer tables available and they would not move us when I asked. If we had not been with a client I would have walked out. The food was delicious but our meal was ruined from the start because of the hustle bustle taking place at our table.

A great experience while visiting NYC. The service was impeccable and watching the staff move about the restaurant was like watching a ballet. My husband commented on how well the staff seemed to enjoy being there and always acted respectfully to guests and to each other. The food was delicious. This is a very expensive splurge -- but worth it for the unique opportunity to experience this iconic NYC setting.

The prime rib was too rare and chewy. The filet mignon with pepper was too salty to eat. Waiter was excellent and he tried to make it up to us. We don’t mind paying for a good meal but this was not anywhere near what I was expecting. Will not go back and will not recommend to anyone.

The landmarked interior is done justice and more with excellent service and a classic menu. While reservations for a meal generally book up in advance, we were lucky enough to get in for dinner 2 weeks out. We liked our dinner so much, we returned a couple days later with friends to enjoy drinks at the bar and share this special place with them as well!

This is a superb new addition to the Manhattan dining scene. I dined at the old Four Seasons as a kid, for one of my first fine-dining experiences, and the room has been restored to its old glamour. But the food and service are better than ever -- the food consists of updated and superbly executed classics, and the service is extremely attentive but not hovering. This would be an excellent restaurant for a special occasion (we were here to celebrate a birthday), and we will definitely return!

The food was ok. Very basic and not hard to execute. Prime rib stuck out the most but you can’t choose temp. They say it’s medium rare but my piece was definitely rare.

Fast forward, we were there to taste for possible event for dec 1st. (FYI unless you buyout they won’t let you book until fall. That’s ABSURD!) Anyway...if that weren’t the case we wouldn’t book based on how insulting the sommelier was. All he could say is “I used to work at Jean Georges and I never opened the bottle at table and allowed guests to taste wine before decanting.” UMMMMMM NO! You should open the bottle in the dining room and allow us to taste before doing anything else with the wine! And we don’t like to decant our wine, so that was the main issue! The producer of the wine (we’ve been there) says we should allow their wines to open up in bottle to not stress.

HORRIBLE experience and we won’t be back. We don’t need spend that kind of money ($700 for 2 ppl) to argue with a grumpy somm who should retire.

Thanks OT for asking us to review. I

Service was very rushed and a tad unfriendly. Dessert was less than stellar and literally served the minute after our dinner plates were cleared. Since this was a special occasion, I had hoped for a more exceptional and leisurely experience.

Me and one of my friends arrived a little early and they led us to the bar area, which was already beautiful. Wonderful service and drink suggestions. At our reservation time a server came to get us and they transferred our bar tab to our table. The service was excellent and so friendly! The food was out of this world.
To start, the apps: the crab cake, fois gras, pasta a la press, house cured salmon, chilled crustacean, and continental ham. All amazing! Don't be fooled by other reviews that say that crab cake is very small. We shared it between 4 of us! The pasta was absolute heaven. Whatever you do, don't miss out on this dish! The salmon was another favorite at the table. We could've ordered one for each of us the way we fought over it.
On the entrees: most of us ordered the duckling based on other yelp reviews, one ordered the rib eye steak (which we all stole some of). As other reviews said, the duck does not disappoint. It was hands down the best duck I've ever had. The skin was perfectly crisp, and the sauce gave it a wonderful tangy flavor. The rib eye was cooked perfectly, and cut table side.
Sides: For the sides we got the buttered dumplings, the grits with marrow, Chinoise asparagus, and Barley Forester. Again, Everything was cooked to perfectly. The dumplings were so creamy, I wish I had more room in my stomach at this point to keep going. My absolute favorite side though was the grits with marrow. I could stuff myself silly with it. It amazing. I didn't want to stop eating, not matter how full I was!
Dessert: (yes we kept going!) Lemon chiffon cake, baked alaska, chocolate cake, and a peach dome cake. Between the 4 of us each one picked one of these as our favorite! Mine was the lemon cake, although the display of the baked alaska was beautiful! And each was so amazing, regardless of how full we were, we still devoured everything!
Prices are steep, so be prepared, but it's definitely worth it for the quality in service and food!

As expected the food was exceptional in terms of freshness, quality, and flavor. A pet peeve for a fine dining experience is when the dishes arrive separately for each guest. The prime rib and Dover sole where prepared table side and served simultaneously. However duck pressed pasta arrived over 5 tortuous minutes later with no comment or explanation leaving the other dishes cold.

What a special evening we had indeed at the Grill. Be prepared to be transported back in time to another era where attention to detail , food preparation, and the commitment and passion of the waitstaff are all a priority. This is an example of getting what you pay for and, at least for us, it was appreciated and enjoyed. This is the type of NYC restaurant that could have pompous staff and thankfully it did not. We will return for another special occasion.
