About

This restaurant is permanently closed.

The Four Seasons Restaurant in New York, famous for excellent cuisine and a formal dining experience, is excited to offer guests the same quality in a new location on Park Avenue. The classic upscale restaurant is becoming more and more rare in a city focused on fast, which is why The Four Seasons Restaurant stands out as a steadfast provider of a formal meal.

The multiple course format at The Four Seasons syncs with the sophisticated atmosphere and professional service. First course options are on the lighter side in preparation for the second course. Excellent combinations include crispy oysters followed by the ahi burger with mango onion salsa.

With a bubbling white pool and four seasonally-changing trees at each corner, the Pool Room is breathtakingly beautiful. Airy and romantic, it was designed by Philip Johnson and is one of the finest examples of architecture's International Style.

The Pool Room features The Four Seasons' signature shimmering chain curtains and a collection of furnishings and tablewear that are part of the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection.

Our most favorite restaurant in NYC! The food never disappoints, the service is always first-class, and the ambience is unsurpassed by any other restaurant...my idea of heaven. Even if you don't have a special occasion coming up soon to celebrate there, go anyway...you'll feel as if you had because every meal there IS a special occasion.

Excellent place to conduct a small business meeting.
I hadn't been in the Four Seasons in a number of years.
It seems that the food has slipped a notch and service is less attentive and more "snooty"than it used to be

Excellent ingredients prepared well. Service (from waiter Alex) was outstanding. Very experienced and practiced staff. Comprehensive wine list. Calm, mid-century modern interior. Braised duck is prepared excellently, as are the soufles (Gran Marnier is best). Old fashioned table-side Caesar salad preparation. Meal was served at a relaxing pace. Have been before and will be back!

The Four Seasons is a New York classic, and it has always served excellen food very well in a lovely setting. Lunch is busy, dinner less so, in my experience. You pay quite a bit for all that.

We were treated with the most gracious service from the time we walked in the door. The ambiance of the room was amazing, and everything we ordered was the best. I had the bison, and my wife had halibut. Our waiter helped us select a wonderful bottle of pinot noir that went very well with both dishes. It was the perfect start to our evening before a show. We can't wait to come back to New York and The Four Seasons.

Well, what can one say that hasn't been said a million times before? The Four Seasons is one of a kind, the most special of special restaurants. There is no place to touch it in New York or anywhere else I can think of. Their pre-theatre dinner is one of the great bargains in fine dining.

A SIMPLY DEVINE DINING EXPERIENCE thanks to time honored facts! Yes...gentlemen must wear a jacket! Yes, the space is timeless with the soaring high walls, shimmering window treatments, and the piece de resistance... the pool! Yes, the food is fabulous! Yes, the service is meticulous and best of all... they still do table service! Be it old school caesar salad prepared table side or salmon slicing. This is WHY we used to go out to dinner! For the three Zagat variables: Food, Decor and Service! The Four Season's scores are exemplary in all categories. And oh... the mound of cotton candy presented for a special occasion makes you smile and feel like a kid again!

Food is consistently superb (bison with foie gras - yum!) and service is very polished and professional. It is easily one of the loveliest restaurants in NYC, and my favorite place to dine anywhere in the US.

This restaurant is sadly long past its prime. The bar was staffed by a poorly trained and unwelcoming team. Bar was cluttered, badly kept and drinks were poorly made. This set the tone for the evening. There was little focus on guests as the many waiters prepared food - it felt as if guests were part of an assembly line. On the positive side, the room is just incredible and our waiter did his best. But, this landmark needs a complete re-think

Another wonderful experience at the Four Seasons. While the food may not satisfy hard-core foodies looking for the latest thing, the quality of the ingredients is top-notch and the food is excellently prepared (and delicious). The service is nothing short of perfect and our waiter helped make the occassion (my daughter's birthday) truly special. Great wine list - one of the red wines we ordered (from the lower third of the price range)won my wife's "best red wine I have ever tasted" award.
We look forward to our next dining experience at the Four Seasons.

The Four Seasons for me is the quintessential New York restaurant. I so appreciate that it has gently over time altered its menu to accommodate changing food preferences without ever changing its elegant essence. It is expensive but deserves to be so.
