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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Responded on March 27, 2019

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!

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.
