Went to the four seasons to celebrate my friends engagement. I used to go to the old one all the time and thought it might be nice to try the new one.
The restaurant is still decorated in the mid century style which alludes to the old New York feel. However the old restaurant had large seasonal flower arrangements (which were definitely very expensive) which filled the restaurant with such beauty and gave a nod to the restaurants title. There are barely any floral arrangements now. Also the music which was the soundtrack to the evening was a little tired and did not help the ambiance.
The service was slow all around- from getting seated, to ordering drinks and food, to getting food. The staff was friendly and helpful, just slow.
I ordered the risotto to start and the Dover sole as my main. Both tasted amazing but the risotto boarded on being very cold. I ordered the chocolate soufflé for dessert and not only was the soufflé cold but the chocolate sauce was cold as well.
I think the restaurant has a lot of potential to be better. It will never be the same as the old one but it can definitely improve.

We enjoyed a true dining experience. From the mid-modern ambiance, fabulous menu, table side service, unbelievable wine list and excellent souffle to the amazing and knowledgeable staff, we celebrated a memorable evening.

The new lunchtime bar menu in the spectacular bar designed by Brazilian starchitect Isay Weinfeld is much more reasonable than the main dining room, but the dishes, good as they are, come with almost no vegetables, which leaves you a little hungry. And the wine-by-the-glass selections are too expensive -- there needs to be a few house whites and reds that are reasonably prized, for the avid but less rich clients.

Perfect dining room for lunch. Pleasantly bright, good view of all guests and very comfortable seating. Good concise menu without not too much choice. Excellent Dover sole as always. Boring with a wine list on an i-PAD - it doesn't fit in.
Overall very satisfying to be able to re-find the old wonderful IV Seasons feel.

We were long time fans of the original Four Seasons , we loved everything about it . We must admit our last dinner at the old place was less than perfect but it was the day it was announced that they were closing .
When we were in NY this time we decided to try the new restaurant for lunch before our return flight .
It exceeded our expectations , the incredible service was there and the food was sublime , better than any dinner in recent memory anywhere . Our waiter had been at the Four Seasons for 35 years which was an added bonus . All I can say is make your reservations early because soon they will say they will be saying “ sorry we are booked “ . Come dressed for a beautiful truly NY experience .

This magnificent restaurant has maintained its storied, iconic place in the New York restaurant landscape. Beautiful, casually elegant, with a nod to the mid-Century Modern furnishings that were a hallmark of the old restaurant. Whenever someone comes to town and I want them to have more than a meal, but rather, an experience, I treat them to The Four Seasons. The food is fantastic, the service understated but attentive, and you feel transported, out of the city and into a world all its own. It is pricey, and worth every cent.

The new Four Seasons evokes much of the atmosphere of the original in its dramatic new space, stunning ceiling sculptured light rods, spacious table layouts, minus the pool. A warm welcome from the owners, delicious food, attentive service, and a high price, but you get what you pay for, a fabulous dining experience. Sourdough rolls, amuse bouche of cauliflower soup, appetizers of big superb PEI oysters and an amazing assemblage of grilled squid in its ink, followed by the signature duck for two entre we had been waiting two years for, beautifully served zt our table while our fellow diners watched in awed envy, all accompanied by a bottle of champagne do carefully measured out during this divine birthday celebation on Halloween Eve. A fluffy pink mountain of cotton candy with candle with a surprise of ice cream was presented at dessert time. We also shared a signature chocolate souffle. Two expressos ended this memorable meal.

On our visit to Manhattan, we wanted to take my elderly mother somewhere special. We’d been to the old location about 4 years ago, and we loved the ambience.
Despite being 8 weeks into the new opening, the whole experience was superb.
Our waiter was wonderful and provided great advice when we were deciding - from cocktails to dessert.
The famous duck was succulent with crispy skin and, of course, we got cotton candy for our nephew’s belated birthday!!
The staff was so helpful getting my Mom to our table too. They have access for those who can’t use stairs. You simply need to ask!!

Was exited to see the new restaurant that was so iconic in the pass so booked it for special occasion. Food was out standing their signature duck and dower sole both exelent. As well both appetizers that we shared seviche scampi and oysters. Decor was bit disappointing very plain looks like business office both the dinning room and the bar. Best part are the Czech crystals on the windows representing champagne bubbles

Not the same as it was before the move
Menu selections many fewer in numbers
VERY overpriced. 32.00 for New England clam chowder is outrageous! 23.00 for a Napoleon desert. Not just for the rich but for those who don’t care about money.
Some wines by the bottles cost far in excess more than the entire overpriced meal. The only redeeming feature is food itself.

As fans of the original Four Seasons, we were excited to try the new location. The space is beautiful and the service typically impeccable. The food was reminiscent of the original. But the prices were insane. Gone is the prix fixe menu. A single crab cake was $62. We had three courses and left hungry.

Disappointing. My shrimp appetizer came raw, when it was supposed to be served cooked through and my filet mignon came medium rare when I asked for well done. The steak was taken back to the kitchen and the meat came back burnt. It bears no resemblance to the quality of the old Four Seasons. There were many service staff at hand but they were not in sync in the manner the dinner was handled.
