The Four Seasons Restaurant – The Grill Room - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
We. had the 60 dollar prefixe for lunch. It was satisfactory..no flair..not occasion festive..workmanlike servers..prepared well but the food was lacking in quality and certainly origanality.....I am in my nineties and it reminded me of restauranrts in Hotels and apartment hotels in the thirties...they were convenient for the tenants but had bo personality.
I cannot really find anything bad to say about the Four Seasons Grill but I cannot find anything to make me want to return. It was just "OK". The Décor was 1950s but that might have been the plan. If so, they succeeded just fine but it was not to my tastes and that might have influenced the rest of my impressions. The wine list was limited when compared to other places I went during the week. Again, not bad, just not what I was expecting. I guess my overall impression was that it was a mediocre experience...
The good reputation seems undeserved. Service was snobbish, particularly by the gent who appeared to be the senior front of the house staff. Two of six orders were wrong. Food was passable certainly nothing that would make me consider returning. It was a quiet night so really no excuses. The strongest thing this place has going for it is the room. Which is stunning. But in a city with the options of NY, that's not enough to get me to return.
The only reason to go to the Four Seasons any more is just to see the dining rooms. So go, have a drink at the bar and then go elsewhere to eat. There are so many other restaurants with better food and better service. For the prices charged at The Four Seasons, it should be much, much better. It's a sad example of a restaurant trying on its past laurels. Very past laurels.
This was New Year's Eve I was expecting a lovely meal
The starters were ok
Our main courses were very poor like something from a cheap hotel
Lumpy potato purée very bland
The desserts were very average as well
The service was shocking I thought the waitress was quite rude
She didn't even smile or speak as she only cleared half our plates then left us
Another member of staff finally cleared our table
We were not asked if we would like coffee
A very disappointing evening
Wanted a memorable meal for xmas eve, this was it but not in a good way.
Really overpriced set menu for the quality of food that came out.
I had the four seasons goose, and it was worse than any goose that I could have had at a chinese in canal stree. Very tough meat, dry and bland. The stuffing was better executed and I enjoyed that vastly more than the duck itself.
My companion had the truffle scallops which she enjoyed and it was fair enough a dish, but nothing special or to write home about.
Kids got a massive dessert of candy floss which was a nice touch.
Would not go back again.
This restaurant has decent food. It is overpriced for the service and quality. We also ate at The Modern and though it cost more money it was a much better value for the cost. This restaurant is also very hard to find. We walked around several blocks several times before we were able to locate it.
We had a wonderful enjoyable dinner. The wait staff was attentive and extremely polite. The entire dinner experience was a pleasure and was well worth the money. We totally appreciated the ending where they served us cotton candy. Awesome!!!! We would deficiently dine there again.
Élegant, confortable, great food ( tuna tartar & nantucket bay scalops so tasty!) , affordable great red Burgundy ( fruity Givry Cellier aux Moines)...and a very discreet efficient staff , managed by the charismatic Julian Niccolini , who wellcomes every one as a VIP. This place is not a myth ...it is a living legend!
One comment , on booking by phone , the contact could be slightly arrogant ...
My daughter and I celebrated her birthday - first drinks at the bar (crowded but friendly) and then dinner in the Grill Room. We weren't pleased with the first table and requested a change, which was readily accommodated. The food was really good - burrata and beet salad is outstanding. The rack of lamb was perfectly cooked!. When I made the reservation on Open Table I noted we would be celebrating her birthday. After dinner we were served complimentary champagne and the cotton candy with a candle on top. A lovely evening!
The service was great and very attentive. Overall, the food was very good, especially the Grand Marnier souffle, which was fantastic! However, we were very disappointed by the overall ambience and dining experience. This was an anniversary dinner, so we were hoping for a more romantic setting. Based on the online reviews, I was expecting a more intimate and romantic setting. We were seated at a nice table for two in the Grill Room. The floor to ceiling teak walls and sparse furnishings made us feel like we were in a 1970s convention holding room, waiting to get into the main dining room. It was neither romantic nor intimate. Very disappointing.
The food was mediocre and the staff was not only incompetent but insulting. There was no accountability for the series of errors made by the staff. Even worse, there were no apologies. The food was fine but not great. Considering the price, there are many superior alternatives in the city.
We had a wonderful lunch at Four Seasons. It was not inexpensive, but for a special lunch it was spectacular. Food, service, ambience, all were spot on and top shelf.
Ivan, out main server was professional, knowledgable with a very pleasant disposition.
The entire staff was great, and we are not regulars, this was our first time at this restaurant. It is definitely a power lunch spot, and the room is filled with the big hitters of the NYC and beyond business and philanthropic world, but we were treated with the same level of service.
If you are looking for a special place for a relaxing, perfect lunch with great food. This is worth the price.
We booked on Open Table The Four Seasons "The Grill". When we arrived, they said "The Grill?" There was no one sitting in the grill, its a bar with tables. They took us to the restaurant, which is fine, guys need a jacket, but I think its all overblown and way too puffed up about how good they think they are. I'm not sure this place is relevant any more...and it hurts the Four Seasons brand. We love it in Milan, Vancouver and SF, but NY? We will take a pass next time...maybe you should, too...
PS...I'm glad I checked the bill
There was a "phantom" $18 white wine charge that we never ordered...
We went to the Four Seasons to celebrate two adjacent birthdays. Everything from the wonderful food (excellent duckling, the consistently best crab cakes in the city, and terrific crispy oysters sent by the chef for us to taste even though we didn't order them) the cool and fun ambience in the pool room, a really nice waiter named Giussepe . . . all contributed to a really memorable event. No pretension at all -- how can a restaurant be pretentious when they bring you a two-foot high pouf of homemade pink cotton candy to top off the meal -- and it was just really fun and outstanding in every way. The Four Seasons is one of NYC's best restaurants for a long list of reasons. We'll be back -- I just have to save up a bit.
We celebrated a special anniversary and wanted to do it in style. On making the reservation with open table I asked that they do whatever they could to make our evening special.The staff at the four seasons made us both feel so pampered. Ivan, our waiter was very attentive. The food was truly memorable.
What can one say? The Four Seasons has to be experienced. The trap is to act the sophisticate. The trick is to remain yourself, real, down to earth. That way you get to enjoy the wait staff along with the food. Our waiter had a great sense of humor. With us, being relaxed he shared that. If we played stuck up, he wouldn't have shown us that side. If you're a Foodie, the tastes are subtly elegant in the classic sense. You can pick from so many delightful dishes and it's hard to say one is better than another. Certainly, try the Duck, maybe the best I've ever had. And the Fava Bean soup, seasoned just right. In order not to over eat, my wife and I shared the Summer menu and had one dish from each section. That's the way to go.
The Four Seasons is an exquisite setting, with impeccable cuisine and service. It is a regular haunt for those of us who reside in the City and love the 'institutions' that have maintained their panache! Far from the racket of trendy "wanna be" places, an evening of delightful enjoyment, business accommodation and impressiveness, or pure self indulgence ...this restaurant frequently is my first choice when others disappoint upon entering.
I thought it was already Friday. The band was playing sweet jazz wit incredible skill. I bought their CD and the composer signed it. The bar was electric, the crowd was eclectic and the food was to die for. I wanted to order everything on the menu, but we were only a party of six. And we still escaped for less than a dime. What a fantastic time!
It's hard not to like the Four Seasons Restaurant, from the wide, open spaces and high ceilings, to the excellent food and very attentive service. Bottom line is this is a "can't miss" experience in Manfattan, whether for a business lunch or dinner, or a romantic evening out with a loved one.
We went to celebrate our anniversary and ordered from the pre theater dinner menu. The waiter had a snobby attitude and although we got there when the restaurant opened I felt because we didn't order from the regular menu that we were treated a little differently. The quality of the food for the price was very disappointing. When you add in 2 glasses of wine to the dinner, tax and tip the bill came to $200. The restaurant ambience is beautiful but the steak wasn't tender and the dessert looked like they sliced a piece of a chocolate log cake that was frozen and put it on the plate. I was expecting a wonderful meal and great service.The meal didn't live up to the restaurant's reputation. Must be that they are living off of their past glory.
We took our daughter after her College graduation and to commemorate another milestone as we did 18 years ago when she was only 4 years old! She visited Four Seasons as one of her first outings when she turned 4. They made it possible to relive the same special moment and surprised her with the cotton candy as they did 18 years ago. She will remember forever. Thank you for a priceless memory. Drs. Carlos and Eneida (Roldan) Valdes-Lora
