Absolute perfection. Chef crushes it with the most exquisite food in an architectural masterpiece. This is an experience unto itself.
Outstanding food and service. A new standard!
A truly remarkable place! Would love coming back!
Fabulous new life for an old classic!
Location molto bella ma servizio veramente troppo pushy e musica inadatta e troppo alta x questo tipo di locale che è un normale ristorante e non un party place.Cibo normale,conto adeguato. Clientela non selezionata
Not as good as the Four Seasons was but still a great place for a special night
The service was very courteous and attentive.
Food was excellent
Music level too loud and not conducive to special dining
Another incredible experience. Starting with the Manger, Jamison, greeted me upon arrival as if I'm a long lost friend. This type of welcome make you want to keep coming back.
Our waiter, John Jaque, was one of the most professional servers I have ever encountered. Between these two gentlemen I have no excuse for not coming back when I come to New York.
Thank you all including the elegant and beautiful greeters.
We had a reservation for 6 at 10pm for one of our friends bday. Overall it was a good experience. I ll try and make a quick list of the things i liked.
Things i liked
1. The gnudi pasta was extremely good.
2. The wine selection
3. The decor on the walls
4. The glasses and plates were extremely chic and cute
5. Our captain. He was extremely pleasant, polite and knowledgeable. Don’t remember his name but he is French.
It was a good experience but nothing that will make you go crazy. When it was the four season i used to go all the time. The pool didn’t really win my heart. However i would recommend to visit just once to see it.
What an amazing birthday dinner for my best friend. The service was impeccable, the food delicious, and the extra details the team added for her birthday were perfect/unexpected. Will definitely be back for a special occasion!
Delicious. A bit pretentious ... why not a starch with main course? But excellent overt
Everything was perfect from the food to the service to the decor. A wonderful evening!
Jordan was exceptional and everyone single person who served us last night was very attentive. We had a great time. Thank you.
Great food in a Unique atmosphere. Service was impeccable and made you feel special. This isn't a place for the "faint of wallet" though. You will be spending $$ but worth the experience if you have it.
this was one of the best dinners I have ever had. Service was 5 stars
Sexy chef, sexier fish.
Excellent service and amazing food!! A special place
Food did not measure up to the elegant setting and professional service. Black Truffle Pasta (for $50) was a definite miss and way over salted.
Excellent food and excellent service,, I am in loved with the place 😍😍
Everything was great; food, service, playlist. I think the room could use a few more elements to make it look less like a convention hall meeting room. The Grill has a little more personality compared to the Pool. But still, a great dinning experience.
Beautiful space and very good food. Sad that the restaurant violated Landmarks Preservation Commission regulations in renovating the space, but overall it has a nice feel. Not as nice as it used to be.
Excelent experience. We enjoy.everything.
If you appreciate fine dining this is you spot. It was recommended by a friend but a bit to fancy for my taste and wish we would have previewed the menu prior to going. Limited menu with mostly fish/shellfish (I'm allergic to shellfish) and very expensive for smaller portions. A great spot however for celebrity sightings.
Jean Jacques is the absolute best. I could listen to him all day.
Fantastic evening. Wonderful service and great presentations of menu choices. Special place. You will certainly be happy going here
I had a business dinner at The Pool recently and it was perfect!
It was great, only reason I’m not giving a 5 is because my expectation was set so high - I certainly recommend it but it’s not like knock your socks off great.
Jameson provides the best service anyone could ever ask for
The server collected our dishes in such a rude manner without noticing we were still in talking and deciding whether to order a desert wine there - stupid and ruined our moods in 30 seconds. I will not come again. This is definitely not the hospitality that I expected. Will NOT come back again.
Besides, the ‘pool’ is nothing but uncleared water. You may only want to come there for the food but the food only doesnt worth that price with its poor portion. The ambient and service do not add any value on the food. The chef should consider moving somewhere better.
4 of us went for my wife's birthday and we were not disappointed. Everything was top notch; food, service, atmosphere, moderate noise level and great music.
Highly recommend this restaurant!
A pleasure as usual with exceptional staff that make an evening at The Pool a graceful joyful event!
The people working there were so nice. However, they brought me a wrong appetite, our main meals were cold and bill was wrong. They should have better services with that price.
The foods were heavily spiced -- they use very good materials. They make everything too complex to me.
The food was good, but it was very overpriced. It doesn't compare to the Four Seasons, but actually is more pricey. Very very overpriced for the overall experience. We don't mind paying for a great meal, but would go elsewhere for better food at a more reasonable price.
Fantastic all around
Such a glamorous NYC night out and the staff is awesome!!! Love the bar vibe, reggae music and the wine list is rocking!
Imagine that you went to a top end and high priced steak house for a 7 PM reservation on a Saturday night. After being seated and given the menus to consider for quite some time, and having made preliminary choices, the captain now appeared and said that they were "sold out" of the rib eye and filet minion. At 7? When dinner service is still in the early stage? On a Saturday? This high end fish restaurant has a very limited selection of fish entrees to begin with (7) and two were "sold out" at 7 including the whole grilled fish of the day. There is simply no excuse for such a lapse. Then things got worse.
The lobster in the lobster salad was overcooked, tough and stringy. Some of the greens in the green salad were actually spoiled and at the ick! stage, while others were so large that they needed to be cut, but this was not easy to accomplish in the bowl they were served in. Other dishes had so much salt that the taste of the star ingredients was lost.
To their credit the staff tried to make amends in response to our complaints by deducting some of the charges.
The room remains beautiful and iconic, one of the most special dining spaces in the entire country. Recommend that you eat at the adjoining Grill (which is excellent) and stop by on your way out to see the beautiful room.
Food and Service were amazing. The old four seasons - The room is just as dramatic but the people are more approachable. From the front door to the server and beyond. Will bring a date there soon.
In the Pool room of the old Four Seasons, it has retained its ambiance. The menu choices were interesting, the food was quite good and the service was excellent. We even asked for and were given a tour of the kitchen. I have never seen a kitchen so clean, yet quite busy. It shares space with the kitchen for The Grill and both sections were amazing. Next to try is the Grill.
A lovely setting, although music played throughout the meal and with the noisy Grille just next door, we were still able to carry on a quiet conversation without difficulty. The food was excellent both in presentation and taste. For elegant seafood, a great choice.
