The Garden is an excellent place for breakfast or lunch (it is not open for dinner) and reflects the style and approach of the Four Seasons hotels in general - excellent food, truly outstanding service, gracious environment. It what you expect from a restaurant in the Four Seasons, and it fulfills all such expectations. The environment is also distinctive, providing an oasis of calm, albeit a serious one. I am in the restaurant regularly, and its excellence is totally consistent. The one warning is also not surprising given its location - it is expensive. But you understand what you are paying for and I highly recommend it.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch at The Garden. We were celebrating our 57th Wedding Anniversary. I had asked for a special table which was given to us. The host and wait staff were very solicitous with a complimentary champagne and dessert. We were also given the house car to take us home. They all made our special day even more special.

Excellent spot for brunch. Quiet and civilized atmosphere: a relative rarity in NYC. The lemon ricotta pancakes were fantastic.

This is a VERY expensive place for breakfast, which I knew, for special occasions only or business write off. Service is always first class. As a chef, I’ll have to say their omelet technique leaves something to be desired but most people won’t mind. As an extra nice touch they sent us mini pancakes as a birthday treat with candles. Pancakes are really good here, though I think their recipe changed. Texturally they whipped the egg whites to make them fluffier and it seems they no longer do that. I could be wrong and realize I’m being nit picky, just an observation. This has always been my go to for breakfast for special occasion and will continue to be.

Met a friend for breakfast who was in town for a short visit. She had the simple dish of yogurt & fruit and I tried the poached eggs and avocado toast. I was underwhelmed by my mushy meal on a piece of bread that I could not cut w the plain knife they gave me. Food aside, we were able to catch up w each other, happy in the quiet, lovely atmosphere and attentive service offered by the staff. Our meal was quite expensive but I had expected that. Sum: The ambience made it the perfect choice for us.

Food was average, and not prepared as requested.
Given the high price, the food should be impeccable

Ambiance, though, is the best on Manhattan.

The staff was terrific and the food was excellent, the decor was quite nice not amazing.
The overall cost is astronomical, and not really a good value even for an occasion.
It was $100 for juice, eggs, hash, 1 coffee and toast. Loved the people, but we don't mind spending lots and we are used to that in NY but this was over the top.

Brunch at the Four Seasons Garden is a must. A thumbs up for Cinnamon and Egg Nog Waffles. However the fries chicken and waffles are a must! A bit pricy however the service, food options and ambiance are well worth it.

The Garden at the Four Seasons is a fine place ro eat breakfast if you don’t care how badly your eggs are cooked. It doesn’t help to complain as s they do it the way want which is overlooked. The addition of ice cold toast seems consistent.
Finally being presented with another person’s bill completes the sloppy performance.

This is my favorite spot for a special occasion breakfasts. My one, go to breakfast here is the Salmon Eggs Benedict. The service is excellent, quick and very professional. It draws a smart international business crowd but the setting is so pretty that it feels completely comfortable for special breakfasts with friends. I would recommend it for high level business people and special occasions. Special note to the great service by M.

I entertain for a living, but will NEVER go the Garden again for breakfast. The prices are insane. What they call the Park Avenue breakfast consists of eggs, toast, juice and coffee and costs $54. Now that's a profit margin any store owner would kill for. When asked how much are two scrambled eggs, a la carte, the answer was $32. A bagel was $12.

Disgraceful. Never again.

You expect the food at Four Seasons to be excellent and it was. But when they overcooked my hamburger what I didn’t expect was free desserts for four of us, numerous apologies from the server and finally a visit from the chef also apologizing. How could I not return!
