Brunch was served at Bourbon this week because of renovations downstairs. They didn't miss a beat: everything was wonderful as usual.
This is far from the first time we’ve been to the Four Seasons for Sunday brunch. We have, however, scaled back big time with the last couple of price increases. Now, they’ve kind of priced themselves well above the market when mostly what you’re paying for is the ambiance of Seasons and the outstanding service. This time, they held the brunch in the Bourbon steak restaurant because Seasons is undergoing some kind of rennovation. The ambiance in the Bourbon is very different than Seasons. Seasons has always felt open, bright and airy whil Bourbon is mostly the opposite. In Seasons, the food stations are around the room. With brunch being held in Bourbon, the food stations were in another room and my perception may have been wrong, but it seemed like there were quite a few less choices this time. At the price they charge, they should have just cancelled brunch until Seasons reopened or discounted it while in Bourbon.
The one thing that didn’t change with the change in venue was the outstanding service from the waitstaff. They are all so professional, friendly and welcoming.
Buenísimo y súper buen servicio
It was ok. Food variety was limited. Expected better of Seasons at the four seasons.
Absolutely a very good experience. Everyone in our party was very pleased with the offerings and with the service. Some had been to the Seasons Brunch in the past, and others were experiencing it for the first time. In either case, there were bountiful, delicious offerings that addressed the needs of carnivores, and those who claim vegetarian diet restrictions!!! Service was right on point and really the main reason we continue to go to Seasons. We know there are less expensive options, but, there are not many that will approach the service level provided at the Four Seasons. There were several "new" options, as well. For instance, there seemed to be a southern station where shrimp and grits, gumbo and fried chicken and waffles were being offered. This really hit home with me as my roots are in Louisiana, and some of these foods were staples in my growing up!
Courting. Possible love
Absolutely amazing!! The food was incredible, with a variety of options. A bit pricey, but it’s worth the experience.
Very special Sunday brunch. Quiet atmosphere. Service was excellent
Had a great experience..... Marilisa as always had great customer service
We always have a wonderful time at the seasons restaurant @ four seasons Dc. Everything is just fantastic from attention to detail to timely delivery of service and care and especially, the compassion shown by the staff is unmatched .
Outstanding service and delicious food.
Best breakfast in Wahington D.C. Food is fantastic. Service is always attentive and excellent. Mohammed, Dina and Kevin are just a few of the talented and professional staff here that make breakfast perfect.
First time and won't be the last for brunch at the Seasons. Excellent food and service and plenty of it.
Dear InfoBro, We are so happy you enjoyed your Brunch experience. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back soon!
Food was mediocre. Although the seafood section had many options, the quality of the oysters were way below expectation. The reception let us in 30 minutes after our reservation. Our server was busy, no one came over to refill my cup. Meanwhile, one of the busboy took a chair away from out table. Horrible experience, mediocre food, service was poor.
Dear AmberL, We are so happy you felt the seafood section had many options. We do sincerely apologize you did not enjoy the oysters and the service was not up to standard. We will follow up internally and speak out to our Chef in regards to the seafood. We do hope to recover your experience, and hopefully welcome you back soon.
The presentation was lovely for the afternoon tea and the staff was very attentive. The food however was sub par for a tea. The flavors and textures seemed very similar. The cucumber sandwiches were completely left off of our tray which was disappointing. The staff did bring us out a set and apologized profusely, but it wasn’t a seamless tea to say the least. The actual tea was probably the worst part of this. The tea strainers were well over packed with tea. There was no need for that much tea in the pot and it ensured that the tea over steeped and became too strong very quickly. After requesting a new pot of Jasmine tea, since mine had gone completely bitter, a second pot was brought out which was already way too strong and undrinkable with how bitter it was. Less tea in the strainers would probably help this. Staff should also recommend to guests to remove the tea strainers from the pot. Not everyone has been to a high tea and knows that you should do that in order to keep it at your desired strength. This was a relatively mediocre experience for the cost. The company was of course invaluable. We still had a lovely time together.
Thank you kindly for your feedback about our Afternoon Tea. We are so happy that you felt the presentation was lovely and the staff was very attentive. We do apologize that your tea experience was mediocre. We would love to discuss your experience further in order to improve future visits. Thank you again for reaching out and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you back soon.
Best Sunday brunch in DC. The seafood bar is phenomenal.
Dear Motown, Thank you so much for your five star review! We are delighted that you feel we are the "Best Sunday brunch in DC." We are looking forward to welcoming you back this summer!
Delicious variety of food
Dear Insaf, Thank you so much for sharing your positive experience with us! We are so happy you enjoyed your time at Seasons Restaurant. Looking forward to welcoming you back this summer season!
Wonderful food, wonderful time!
Glad you had a great time! Hope to see you again this summer for Sunday Brunch!
Great location for a breakfast business meeting. Tourist pricing as to be expected at a FS.
Dear RobertH, Thank you for you kind feedback of our great location. We are happy this suited you well for your business meeting!
The seafood bar was not up to the standard I have come to expect from Seasons. A little disappointing.
Went to the Seasons brunch for my dads 50th birthday and everything was delicious. From the seafood to the breakfast food to the dessert room. Everything was very nice. We all enjoyed ourselves.
We always have a wonderful breakfast there, and my vegetable frittata was outstanding!
Classy, attentive, delicious food, and staff made us feel special.
We went to the Seasons restaurant. The price of the brunch is 150 per adult. At this price point, you should be blown away, not just eating slightly better than average buffet food in a crowded stuffy environment in a dark corner. Strongly would not recommend this for your Sunday brunch for this price.
Dear Guest, We highly appreciate your feedback and we are thankful you decided to celebrate the holiday with us. We are sorry your experience was not what we intended to deliver, as always we will like to opportunity to recover your trust and find improvement for the next time you visit. We hope to hear back from you and welcome you back to Seasons.
Beautiful surroundings and impeccable service
I’m a local and this is my all-time favorite DC brunch! Always enjoy the excellent service, food, and the champagne glass that never goes empty. Look forward to returning again soon.
Outstanding selection, great service. Will visit again.
It was first class wonderful from the moment we arrived until we left. Great service, food, and attentiveness.
The professionalism of the staff always stands out during my visits for breakfast.
I’d like to single out Mohammed, one of the severs and Deana, one of the hostesses. Each time I see either of them, I smile because I know that my guests and I will enjoy our Seasons experience.
Thank you for your feedback, Mr. Cowan. We are so happy you do enjoy our engaging staff. If you have any feedback on how we can achieve five stars, we are more than willing to learn of your suggestions. We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon!
It’s great for Brunch. Usually out-does all of the competition, but this time it fell a little flat. The crab cakes were fishy, some of the other dishes weren’t fantastic. Service was good, but not what it usually is either.
Thank you for your feedback. We do appreciate your thoughts as this does help us improve our Brunch dining experience. I have passed along to the Chef your concerns with the crab cakes as this is not up to our standard. If you are available, we would like to speak with you more about the service you received and the specific dishes that were not fantastic. We do hope to welcome you back soon to ensure you have a wonderful dining experience in the future.
The range of choices and overall food quality, service and ambience are very good in absolute terms, but compared to our last visit about two years ago there are signs of corner cutting and a distinct decrease in value. The only choice of oysters this time was from Maryland, but we only like ones from Long Island or north of there, which were an option before. The sparkling wine is now a so so prosecco vs a pretty decent Spanish cava before. The unmanned hot food station was kind of sad and unkempt, again changes vs our pervious visit. All of this and a nearly 25% increase in the price make the brunch a poor value in our eyes vs. a worthwhile splurge before.
I had afternoon tea here, which was just started being served at the Four Seasons in Washington DC. It was o.k although it was lacking most traditional menu items that you would find in a formal English tea. The service was very good but what I could have done without was the DJ playing loud music in the corner. I felt like I was in a club, not an afternoon tea. I was dining by myself and trying to read a book but was very distracted by the loud music. If someone were with me, I would have had difficulty hearing them from across the table.
It was a very odd thing to have, a DJ with afternoon tea?
Thank you for your feedback, Deirdre. We have just started this new concept of a modern afternoon tea that strays away from the traditional customs. We are so grateful for your constructive thoughts. I am so sorry to learn that the DJ was too loud for your liking. If you choose to dine with us again, we would love to turn the experience around and seat you at a table that is further away from the DJ. We do hope to welcome you back soon!
I had a lovely time during Brunch with my sister. The staff was attentive and very kind, they even offered to show me the vegetarian options available at the buffet stations because of my dietary restrictions. That really was a very special touch and was appreciated. I see myself going back!
We would dine there every Sunday if we could. Lovely.
Would not recommend for the DC tea unless you want the unlimited Moet. Even these, not a great value for the price $75. When the press release came out it read as though the tea martini's were included (they are extra) but there were not. The food was so so at best--I expected more and better. I felt as though in some instances the bread was not fresh. If that was a split top brioche for the crab roll, it was so dense and not fresh, that it resembled a sub roll with very little crab filling. The oak cake for the smoked salmon was so dense you could not taste the salmon and accompaniments, so I moved it aside. The chicken salad was taste and the profiterole was a nice light touch. The traditional scone is iced and has a lavender flower on it, so it is not "traditional" as noted. The clotted cream was over worked and had the consistency of broken butter and not at all tasty. The strawberry jam was quite watery. The orange curd did not have a lot of flavor and I would have preferred lemon which is typical. The pastries were OK, and nothing to rave about. We left them since the lemon cake was short and dense and no rose drizzle was to be found. The opera cake was a little better. The strawberry rhubarb tartlet was fine, but I would not order it.
Our server was lovely, as was everyone we encountered on staff. Finishing with macaroons are nice, but it would been nice to have what they were since one of my daughters is orange sensitive.
The server mentioned they do not accept walk ins, reservations only--which is a shame as the restaurant had a lot of open tables.
Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to provide very valuable feedback, DC T is our newest offering at Seasons and we are working to make it a unique and valuable experience. I am sorry to hear about the confusion with the offerings included in the price and the food offerings not meeting your expectations, please rest assure that we are constantly working on improving this experience and we hope you will give us the opportunity to regain your trust.
Loved everything - it was my birthday and Mohammad was an excellent server
Great experience as always. Just took a moment for the kids to enjoy a lovely brunch for their valentines. They loved everything. Sampled all things and loved the dessert room. My son had a wonderful time and just thought it was the best time.
Highly recommended for the excellent food quality and ambiance
Excellent experience and service once again. Clearly the best brunch in the Washington DC area
Breakfast service was somewhat slow. Coffee not very hot and had to be replaced, I ordered Eggs Benedict. The food had been sitting for a while before it was delivered to the table and not hot, english muffin was soggy from the canadian bacon and not crispy as requested. I was disappointed.
Dear Ms Donna, We much appreciate your feedback, and would like to hear more about your experience. Please rest assure that this is not the standard of service that we strive to provide and we will definitely ensure your expectations are met in during your next visit.
