Attracting New Yorkers for generations, it's played host to every major social event from JFK's 45th birthday party to Manhattan's last Grammy Awards celebration. Open Monday through Friday, the Grill Room is home to the original New York "Power Lunch." At night the Grill caters to those interested in flavorful cocktails and a bite to eat within Phillip Johnson's one-of-a-kind design.

I recently had a fabulous dinner at The Four Seasons Restaurant in NYC. I reserved a table for 10 to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. I had family in from Southern California, Seattle, and South Florida and everyone couldn't stop raving about the food, décor and service. The pool room was well... read more

This is not a place to dine alone, because from my arrival until I departed, I was invisible to the staff. I was sat in a corner and ignored. For $188, for a one course meal, with two glasses of wine, I'd like a little respect.

Attracted by the news that the restaurant will cease to exist in the current place we wanted to experience this famous 'power-lunch' landmark. We had a great traditional lunch with a price tag you should expect walking into such a place. The bread could have been fresher/crispier, the wine list was adequate (who would expect chateaux Carbonnieux in USA?! However,... More

As a New Yorker, I can't give this a high enough review, as not only is it the quintessential special occasion restaurant, but also the quintessential New York restaurant. The bar is quite special, the Grill Room is lovely, and the Pool Room, with it's iconic changing of the seasons and sparkling blue pool in the center and soaring ceilings,... More

Lovely restaurant with classic menu and wine list. We spend NYE 2016 here and loved to $150 three course menu. Excellent service and atmosphere in the Pool Room. Unfortunately due to close / relocate in mid 2016

The Four Seasons' upcoming closure has apparently taken its toll in staff morale and turnover. Pumpkin mole soup was marred by seeds or nuts that had gone rancid, and a watery base stood in place of the complex stock that once had made this a Four Seasons favorite in our household. Wine glasses went unfilled for long periods. Silverware was... More

I first went to The Four Seasons 51 years ago, when I turned 19 (you could drink at 18 in those days), and both my date and I were wow'd. While I admit over the next 15 years, I was neither rich nor suave enough to go back often, when I took a big job at a nearby bank, I... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
