Hard to point out anything specific that wasn't right. It just didn't knock my socks off. I had the lamb kabop. cooked quite well, felt to be sort of a western version, not quite Turkish spiced. The before meal bread was the high point, simply beautifully executed. Good as the bread was, I would have liked the highlight to be... More

This was the second best meal we had in Istanbul (Sorry, first place goes to Nicole). Service was great as was the food. We both had fish that we had never had before, I think it was called Corb (?) and the wine that was suggested to accompany the meal was delicious as was the chocolate dessert. Our sever, Murat,...

We sat outside in the garden area. It was gorgeous. My husband devoured his steak. We sampled everyone's delicacies and each was delicious.

So it was our 1st night in Istanbul and it also happened to be my birthday so after reading many reviews on many restaurants prior to traveling to Istanbul my husband and I decided to go to the Seasons restaurant.

This restaurant is attached to the Four Seasons Sultanahmet, so expectations are high. A wonderful, calm setting, inside in air conditioned comfort or outside in the splendid garden, just minutes away from Haya Sofia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. A truly wide range of Turkish and European foods. Excellent a la carte or buffet, beautifully presented and cooked. In-restaurant... More

A perfect respite from the hussle and bustle of the Sultanahmet District. Set in the garden courtyard of the Four Seasons Sultanahmet the restaurant offered indoor and outdoor dining. The food was excellent with a variety to appeal to most tastes. The service was attentive and kind.

A smorgasbord of tasty Turkish treats. Lots to choose from for even the fussiest critic. And the price is surprising value.

I've been at Seasons Restaurant for lunch, and I must say it was a great experience. Food was great, service was flawless. It's a really beautiful spot, surrounded by glass walls and plants, from where you can also see the beautiful architecture of the hotel.
