FS is always a pleasant dining experience because the menu is always good and the service impecable. I’ve been going here for years, so much so that everyone knows us. If it’s not on the menu and they have the ingredients, they’ll make it for you without so much as a furrow of the eyebrow. In addition, there’s no loud background music so everyone is respectful and speaks quietly. Lots of light as well. Superb place to relax and coffee is always delectable.

Had afternoon tea with my BFF. We do this twice a year at various locations. This was our least favorite. Presentation did not meet expectations for a “ Four Seasons” and the food (both the savories and deserts) were just so-so. In fact I didn’t even eat all of mine and that never happens. We won’t be back for Tea here anymore. Service was great though. So A+ for that. Food was a D presentation was a D. So a low C average overall.

Delicious Food + Outstanding Service! There’s something to be said about dining in a place where the service is so incredible, even if the food isn’t good you’d still go back again and again! Seasons meets our expectations for both.

Overall, brunch was a pleasant experience but with the increasing prices and decreasing food experience, I no longer think this brunch is worth the cost. A few other guests mentioned the same to me in passing Years ago this was the best brunch in the city but the seafood area was lacking which used to be the piece de resistance. Once again, service was fine (not exceptional but fine) but I don’t think this is worth the cost anymore.

Our Brunch experience began with the high level service rendered from the valet car staff. Then upon entering Seasons, we were greeted by Diana, who is always a professional , yet cheerful presence. Once seated, we were in the good hands of Mohammed, who makes guests feel as though no request is too big or too small.
We were celebrating a live well lived as our friend and guest had lost her husband last fall. Diana surprised us with a macaron plate which was inscribed with an uplifting
message. Our experience included all of that and great food as well!

The brunch service was phenomenal. The seafood was superior with more variety of dishes than I could try. Also this was a protein hearty offering with lots of vegetables so if you are low carb or low starch you will be satisfied, served and catered to. I fully intended to eat croissants, waffles, French toast etc. but there so much whole food I was already full and overserved. This will be a staple on my best brunch list.

We have brunch st Seasons every News Year's Day we can. It is always special. This year there were some things that were different - possibly trying to make things special - that did not work. Overall, however, an outstanding place to start the New Year.

Great brunch buffet. Good service although table a little drafty and in the aisle. Good food including seafood especially lobster salad. To order french toast, waffles and pancakes. Wonderful cheese selection and lots of desserts. Lamb chops very nice. Cream puffs crispy outside by some secret process. Server especially good. Daughter forgot purse and he came after us to give it to her

Food an service were excellent for Saturday lunch of Thanksgiving weekend. I had the Mahi Mahi entree, which was great. Other entrees at table looked great. Dessert platter was delicious. (It does not come with a chocolate item but we asked for and got one on it.)

Very classy brunch. All the food selections were done well for a buffet. You can tell ingredients are all fresh. Best part were the desserts, beautifully made. This would be nitpicking but the only compliant I have was the Bloody Mary bartender could have been more friendly, certain air of superiority about him. Bloody Mary was delicious however.

I’ve been coming for this brunch for many years. This visit I noticed changes in quality , the Prosecco was inexpensive, some of my favorites were not up to the standards originally set; smaller cocktail shrimp, no short ribs,
It’s still a good brunch, just not a great as it used to be.

This is an ideal venue for a business breakfast: the service is attentive and subtle; the space is light-filled and modern; and the menu is varied with top-quality offerings. For a high-end hotel breakfast it is also favorably priced.

The service was impeccable and food was delicious and plentiful. They have a paella station for the fall. I do wish that they would enforce a dress code. Not spandex, sleeveless t-shirts, ripped jeans etc.. because it brings down the panache of “Four Seasons”

This was our first visit, we were celebrating a birthday and excited to try the Sunday buffet as I have heard it is lavish. We enjoyed the food and service. The seafood area was stellar. The ceviche fresh & flavorful, lobster salad, shrimp and well all the seafood area was great. Crab Louis was just ok. Unusual offputting seasoning. Cheese and charcuterie delicious especially the garlic jam, spiced fish and blue cheese.
Mac and truffle was a nice touch as the crab cakes and salmon. Barely glanced at the breakfast bar... getting stuffed. :) The dessert room was amazing. The chocolate creme puff, and chocolate rocky road cookie stood out. Mimosas were nicely done. My one complaint that made the entire visit not so enjoyable was the temperature of the room. It was sweltering. Their A/C was out! We had an 11:30 reservation and left around 1:30 and it might have just begun to partially run. Extremely disappointing that some sort of temporary unit or fans or some attempt to make guests more comfortable. Vague apologies when I mentioned several times. That left a huge negative in my mind. Pitty.

10/15:19 update: Seasons was kind enough to offer us a return visit, compliments of them. We didn't chose to go back to the brunch as Seasons but rather had lunch at the Bourbon Steakhouse. Although a bit overpriced compared to its many high-end steak house competitors, the food was phenomenal!

Really big disappointment. I was sure this was a safe bet but was so wrong. The buffet only had 3 types of pastries!! It was like a cheap hotel continental spread. There was no fresh bread choices for toast; no bagels; and the only bread was some small slices of toasted white bread which was very hard. For the $100+ price per person, I expected much more. There are so many really good high-end places I should have chosen instead.

Sunday brunch at the Four Seasons is one of the great weekly food events in Washington DC. By far, the Four Seasons outclasses every other Sunday brunch in this city. Everything imaginable is abundant, immaculately prepared and tastefully displayed. I could have tasted everything but I didn’t have four hours to try it all.

Make a reservation and be prepared for the tab. It costs around $100 per person, which still is not a cheap date but the staff does such a superb job that I did not want to leave.

Old world elegance with a modern vibe. Still where the power brokers have breakfast and justifiably so. Everyone is treated with manners and kindness shown so infrequently other places. People are trained who work there! The food and the presentation are unmatched. I only wished they stayed open for lunch and dinner. That is a tragedy.
