Very Good! Quite a place!

The prixe fix meal for lunch was perfect. It was a time to remember- from the atmosphere to the wait staff to the food. A little overpriced but not so much by NYC standards.

This restaurant is a real eye opener in so far as size, grandeur, and spectacle are concerned. The food is not bad either but you come here to be seen and to see the interior. This was a work related dinner - we went for the $75 pre-theatre 3 course pre fixe. I chose parma ham for starters, branzino for... More

This was the 3rd time I've been to the Four Seasons for dinner and it's our mandatory restaurant for a pre-theater dinner. We were disappointed to read that they will not be renewing their lease next year so we definitely had to one last time meal in the Pool Room before they moved out of the Seagram Building. Team of...

I was there for lunch with a group of friends last week and we were a group of about twenty. As usual every thing was excellent especially the attentive service.

The restaurant features great classic recipes like Farmhouse Duck and their Dover Sole. Tableside service is a great little show and the skill of the staff is impressive. Although this is not cutting-edge cuisine, there is a reason the classics are great and a repeat visit is a wonderful treat. The pool room was as lovely as ever although a... More

This was one of my favorite lunch places for over 20 years. I had not been back for a year and was shocked at how poor the food had become, while prices continue to escalate. We all the know the space (Grill & Pool rooms) is second to none. However, the classic "club" food has become dare I say "cheap".... More

Our lunch was the start of a special visit to NYC. The magnificent interior of the Pool Room lived up to the news coverage. The service was most attentive and professional. The menu varied and food superb. We started with smoked salmon, prepared table side, with all the accompaniments - including my special request for fresh dill. The gazpacho was... More

Especially if you haven't been there, go soon, because it looks like a rent increase will close the place in July, 2016. If you haven't been, you deserve to see the interior, and experience the place, while it exists. Rumor has it that the landlord wants to triple the rent. If you are concerned about the price, I'd suggest this:... More

If you want a meal where the rich and powerful hang out, this would be such a place. The food is good but not inspired. The cost is very high and i suspect there are many expense account people eating here. The staff is very attentive. As regards the food itself, i have had better at a much lower cost.... More

We joined a professional colleague for dinner here, eating in the Pool Room. The entire experience was elegant and wonderful. The staff is attentive and polished. The food is first rate, and the service like nothing else in New York. I had the lamb, which was excellent.

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.
