For our 25th Wedding Anniversary, lunch at The Four Seasons was perfectly special!
This is the place for a special lunch. Sit back and watch the power-elite and old uptown socialites mix and chat over a classic lunch.
The Four Seasons Grill is one of those quintessential New York landmarks -- I say landmarks not restaurants -- because it is so very much New York, has such meaningful history and yet, today is as vibrant and important to the fabric of our city as any other great NY landmark.
In this grand elegant space you can dine like a prince and yet have that important initimate luncheon meeting that the space encourages. Whether you are visiting New York as a guest and looking for a 5 star meal or looking for the perfect place to wow your client, The Four Seasons Grill is your match.
For how expensive my meal was, I was highly disappointed in the quality of the food. I have had much better meals for much cheaper in the city. The ambiance is, no doubt, fantastic, but I definitely wouldn't go again.
This lunch was one of my best meals ever. I mentioned I was hunting for truffles, and they had and appetizer and a lunch special truffles- yum. Then my kind waiter brought me a special extra truffle dish with a wine pairing. It was superb! Excellent food and service!
Disappointing. I had waited years to get to the Four Seasons and have a slice of the Four Seasons Fancy cake only to find they don't make it any more.
We had the prix fixe 3 course dinner . I was originally scheduled for the Grill Room but it is just a side of the bar so we changed to the Pool Room. It was quieter and nice decor but a little disconcerting to sit by the pool. It was like eating dinner next to a jacuzzi. The food was excellent though and the service was fantastic. Giuseppe was funny and warm as were all the wait staff. The service was excellent but warm and friendly. They made the dinner special.
The Four Season's reputation is well deserved. The duck for two was excellent and matched in presentation and service. I appreciated a professional waiter who understood giving us our space yet being present instantly at a glance.
Two of NYC's legendary dining rooms, exceptional design (classically timeless elegance) and great service, with tables nicely spaced rather than cramming people in to use ever last square inch. It all adds up to a great experience rarely rivaled.
Highly recommended. Fancy restaurant. Food and wine were very good.
Our first visit to the Four Seasons was decades ago. We've returned for occasions many tea over the years. Sadly the quality of service and food have declined. On our last visit, I ordered grilled octopus and grouper. The octopus tasted for all the world of jarred barbecue sauce, and the grouper was unidentifiable, other than by shape. It was tasteless, mealy and lukewarm.
The service was perfunctory at best. It's sad to say that we won't be returning to a venue of which we have fond memories.
Even if this is the place to see VIPs, it's not worth the price tag. I have had some expensive lunches, but this one gave me sticker shock and the prices simply don't justify the quality of the food.
The atmosphere was great. Beautiful space. The service was uptight and unfriendly . The food temperature was mostly warm instead of hot for most of our entree. Great deserts!
Brilliant in every way is how I would describe our evening at The Four Seasons. We actually dined in the Pool Room, a much more romantic choice than the Grill Room, which was hosting a party of around 100 when we arrived. But into every life a little rain must fall - we told the server we were celebrating a special occasion and two glasses of champagne appeared. Since I didn't order them, I expected them to be complimentary. I should have checked the bill more closely - I was charged $50 for two glasses of champagne that I didn't order. Not a very nice thing to do to us, I must say.
Cocktails were elegant, presentation stunning, food portions correct.
I ate a plate of mixed vegetables and I was charged $45, that's crazy for what I was given
This restaurant has such great reviews that we thought that we must try it whilst on holiday from the UK but sadly we were very disappointed. The Grill Room is very dark and more suited to corporate meetings than an intimate meal. The food was good but we are not keen on all the additional courses which are served and which then don't leave room for a dessert of one's own choice. It also makes the meal disproportionately expensive. The service was attentive but so rushed that we found ourselves out after about an hour which is not the practice in Paris where you can spend the entire evening at your meal in complete relaxation.
The grill room is the best dining room of New York. Owner and staff are special. A dream for an architect like me.
We stayed in NY the first week of october, and monday night we had booked tickets to Phantom of the opera. For te occation (when in New York) we booked a table in the grill room at The Four Seasons and ordered the pre-musical dinner. It is a menu where you can choose between a selection of courses wich added up to a tree course dinner. Our kelner was very nice and funny, and took really good care of us. We also got cotton candy both at the table, and in a bag to-go when we went to the theathre. It was a very good expirience, and i would defenitly reccomend it to anyone.
I was entertaining clients, who I consider friends, and wanted to be able to enjoy our company, food and conversation. Unfortunately, the Grill Room had a loud, large party going on that evening making it impossible to talk. Fortunately, the maître de was able to accommodate our request with a lovely, round table in the Pool Room. You should advertise the difference between the Pool Room and the Grill Room on Opentable so your customers know what to expect.
Is the service at the famed Four Seasons slipping? - I felt that the waiters threw their food at us and, surprisingly, cleared some diners plates before others were finished eating.
We arrived at the Four Seasons for dinner at our appointed time. The host did not know if we were dining in the "Pool" room or the regular dining room. That's not so bad…..I just think they should have known with a reservation.
We ordered wine and dinner after a longer than necessary wait. When our food arrived it appeared good but tasted terrible. Neither my wife nor myself could finish our dinner.
Then we received our bill and were shocked to find that a simple dinner for two (roasted chicken for one and a lobster dish for the other) which included a bowl of soup and a salad cost a whopping $348.00!
I would not recommend this restaurant to family or friends…….or even enemies!
The service and the food was excellent - everything was perfect from the appetizers to the main course, and dessert was simply to die for! I would strongly recommend this restaurant for a business lunch with important prospects or clients!
If you are tired of screaming across the table to be heard, here is a wonderful quiet spot. Perfect for romantic dinner or conducting business. Very high quality food, by execution was a bit off as neither my appetizer nor my entree arrived at the table hot.
I returned back to NYC and decided to take my daughter and her boss for very long lunch (2 & 1/2 hours) with lots of different wines (I am in wine business) to split for them to experience. The waiter was so accomodating and willing to go along with our schedule (needed to kill that long time for their flight). It was almost theatrical and my guests were so highly impressed with his services, food, wines and the ambiance of this great establishment.
I was very disappointed with this restaurant. First, though I knew it was the Grill Room at the Four Seasons and not the main restaurant, I was still expecting a nicely decorated - if more casual - space. However, the decor looked like they threw a few tables and chairs outside the restaurant and put up some cubicle dividers to try to make it feel separated from the lobby. The service was slow and I felt like they often forgot about us. The food was good, but not outstanding and came without sides which had to be ordered separately for an additional (high) charge. The prices were exorbitant, which is not unexpected for the location, but given the subpar decor and service, even outstanding food would not have justified the price.
Loved everything about it. Saw Barbara Walters and another notable news person. Food was excellent. It's an understated yet very classy restaurant. Will return again and again as a place to go when in New York.
Four Seasons always exceeds expectations. The calm and spacious dining rooms are unique to NYC. I like the ability to look outside, also rare in NYC.
The restaurant suited well for business lunches/dinners. The service impeccable along with the lobster salad best I've had yet.
I can see why top businees associates gather there. It is quiet, uninterrupted business converstaion respected by staff good food what more do you need.
Just about perfect in every way, as always. Food, service, ambiance, discretion. This is the best.
Our son and daughter-in-law presented us with a voucher for the restaurant as a christmas gift as we were visiting New York.We both enjoyed a very memorable evening with wonderful food and excellent service.It is not the kind of establishment that we usually frequent but I am sure that given the opportunity in the future we would do it all again.
You definitely go for the experience, not the food. It's incredibly overpriced. With that said, the pool room is very romantic. I can see why it's a NYC staple, but I felt like the food didn't match the cost.
This is a great go-to when looking to impress a business partner. Service is great, as usual. A little loud, but it was lunch time.
My sister and I were both fascinated by the space, designed by Mies Van der Rohe and Phillip Johnson almost 60 years ago. All the details of this room create work together to create a quiet and very peaceful oasis in the middle of bustling Manhattan. I could have stared all day at the fine chain curtains which move with the air-flow in a mesmerizing wave-like motion.
Our charming waiter was wonderful and takes pride in his work, giving accuarate recommendations on the menu and taking his time to talk to us about the architecture, although we were severely underdressed.
Yes, it's pricey! We had a 3-course meal and paid close to $400.
That said, I highly recommend it for that very special occasion.
Seriously, I'm on an expense account but would never pay $75 for a NY Strip at lunch. Come back to earth Four Seasons Grill
Wonderful setting esp the Pool Room.
Food very good although not absolutely top class.
Service good, again not as personalized as it could be. Our experience at least, having eaten in both the Grill room and Pool room during the same week, was that the Pool room service was better.
Also, not made clear when one eats at the Grill room that one can also order from the bar menu , which I think is unfortunate.
Also, list of wines by the glass is quite limited ESP the white wines - eg no Rieslings.
You pay for the location and the name. Food was boring, un-inventive, casual fare. Not impressed.
One must experience the best in order to judge others. Life is too short. Don't wait. Just make a reservation and go.
I was looking for a place to have a quiet business meal in midtown and remembered the Four Seasons. I used to go there all the time and was excited about rediscovering the place. I checked on Opentable and saw they had availability - so I foolishly thought that they welcomed my business. When we arrived, all the old memories came back as we walked through the Griil Room...and kept walking through a door in the back wall to a little room! Here is where they put people who are not regulars, back where they can't see or be seen. The message is that they will take our money but not give us the experience we are paying for. Why would we ever want to go back?
Went for lunch belated Valentine's Day
Some dining experiences have no peers to compare to
Just go before the Picasso is gone
