What Insiders Are Saying
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.
Consistently outstanding and spectacular venue.
The Grill is a recommended place for a classic dinner in a fabulous mid-century space. The crowd of all ages was smartly dressed, ranging from stylishly casual to full-on business. The food is expertly prepared and delicious. The service is attentive and professional. Expensive, yes, but you get an amazing experience in return. The room is lively, especially at 8:30pm, when the bar and restaurant were both at capacity. If it were up to me, I'd turn down the music volume. That being said it wasn't bothersome and we enjoyed a lovely, romantic dinner.
Service was outstanding...
I loved the everything about the evening.
Awesome all around
Lovely place with fabulous ambiance and even better music. Staff was amazing. Very pricy but it was a worthwhile since food was exceptional.
I asked for one item from the menu and I have been told that the quality of dish I wanted to order was not satisfactory for the chef so I order something else from the menu. They have not charged us for my starter which I think was extremely nice touch. Well done.
A boring, overrated place for old people.
Excellent meal. Phenomenal service. Elegant without being stuffy. Warm, comfortable, and delicious. Like stepping back in time. Top foods... oysters, crab salad, prime rib and baked Alaska.
The best prime rib in town. I've been to plenty of NY steak houses but have never had a prime rib this good. Must go. Also, best service in town. They make you feel like you stepped back in time when people cared about your experience. The only downside is price, but it's worth it for special occasions.
The Grill is outstanding restaurant with very nice atmosphere and exceptionally delicious cuisine. Price-wise it is in the upper segment.
The table side preparations are exceptional. We had the crab louie salad, prime rib and cherry jubilee and next time want to try the vintage duck press.
Sexy fine-dining at its best! Celebrated my 40th Birthday with my girlfriends! Ambiance, food, and service was impeccable! Will definitely be back!
Most overpriced steak in Manhattan.
Excellent service and ambience make this a good choice for a special occasion. The food was good but what you’re really paying for is the overall experience.
Excellent experience. The Grill continues to impress.
Fantastic on every level
This was an amazing place to eat we had a great time with the best beer we’ve ever eaten
We dined here for our anniversary on Monday evening. Setting was beautiful with outstanding food. Our server was very polite and excited to have us, he even offered us a complimentary dessert to celebrate our anniversary. We felt very welcomed by him. We did not however feel welcomed by the ladies at the hostess desk. We were likely a little flushed after rushing from another event to make our reservation in time. Additionally... while my husband had changed, I was still in the formal attire I had worn for said event. This was too clearly very amusing to the hostess staff who should be professional enough to remain composed and hold their expressions and opinions until out of view of their guests. These ladies did not represent the establishment well upon our arrival or our departure. Otherwise, a lovely experience.
Top spot for a great night. Amazing service. Great food. Elegant decor
excellent experience from the first moment when the reception staff greets you warmly- no arrogance or attitude-- and ushers you upstairs to the beautiful subdued elegance of the main dining area in which you can actually hear your table mates speak. Every single staff member is efficient, accomodating, cheerful and kind. Superb waiter. Food presentation lovely, everything delicious. Expensive but worth it.
Second time here and loved it even more! Fabulous food and exceptional service. Beautiful setting and not too noisy which is a big plus!! Will go back again!
Honestly, one of the BEST dining experiences. Incredibly thoughtful staff, awesome service, beautiful space and classic ambiance. We were in such a rush, having screwed up our own evening, including a scrambled arrival after having trouble finding a cab in city construction, but in an hour we were treated like old friends, and it made OUR WEEK in NY. Thank you to ALL the staff at The Grill! Hope to be back ASAP!
The service was amazing, very professional!
Great steak and service.
Extraordinary in every possible way. Delicious. Unforgettable. Perfection.
It’s fine for a special occasion. It’s beautiful. I found the prices steep . The Dover sole was $104 . Our server, Raff was superb . I’d go back if insisted but I wouldn’t make the effort on my own. I would however have drinks at the bar. It was lively .
Fantastic, i recommend it. Service is perfect. More expensive than usual
Good to see the former Four Seasons restaurant up and running again. It's lost a little of the vintage charm but the Lippold sculpture looks amazing all polished. I LOVE salt but everything was like a salt lick. I kept asking my dining companion if the salt delivery exploded in the kitchen. It was truly bizarre. The Pain Perdu dessert was not salty and was extremely delicious.
Food and service was great! If you’re ordering a dirty martini make sure you tell them to make it from scratch (they have been using a pre-made mix) which was awful. Bread is amazing too! Enjoy!
Very rude staff in the pool room (where we were transferred for dessert)
Dining rooms are great; like most restaurants in this price range, though, the food is good but not amazing. Paying this much is certainly not a prerequisite to enjoying food of this caliber.
A perfect spot for a birthday lunch! Everything was fabulous.
Great as always. You feel like you are in a 80's wall street movie.
It's the best NYC restaurant. NYC at it's best!
Great service. Great music. Fsntastic ambiance. Super Duck/Fowl egg pasta to start and AMAZING PRIME RIB!!!!!
We had an amazing night celebrating our anniversary. Absolutely perfect for a special occasion. Top notch and service made the night complete.
What a disappointment. For those prices everything should be perfect. There were so many things wrong with this dining experience it can’t be a fluke. Our entrees did not come out at the same time. The espresso never arrived. The food was mediocre. I will never go back here and don’t advise that anyone else does either.
Nice venue. I’ve eaten here many times for lunch. I’ve never walked out thinking that I enjoyed the meal (except the blue crab gumbo). I think the servers at lunchtime wish the 3 martini lunch would come back. People don’t really drink at lunch nowadays. Hence, the tips are lower and the servers less attentive.
