Description: The Grill Room at The Four Seasons Restaurant is truly a New York...
The Grill Room at The Four Seasons Restaurant is truly a New York phenomenon. 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.

A stunning space, superb food & service - a big splurge

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... read 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

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.

I read several reviews, both good and not so good, of the Four Seasons Pool Room before deciding to spend a small fortune to eat there. A few said that it wasn't in fashion any more, which encouraged me all the more to go there, and there was a great deal of discrepancy in regard to people's opinions of the... More

We have celebrated birthdays and anniversaries in the Grill Room. The food, service and ambiance are wonderful. We regret that they will be moving next year. Stay tuned.

There are too many reasons why the Four Seasons Restaurant in NYC is hands down the best restaurant in NY & one of the very best in the world. I've never had a bad dish here and the wine list is exceptional. Daniel Boulud had his birthday lunch here & left at 4:00 pm, need I say more? If you... More

You can see thatthe restaurant is going to close soon. The place is "tired" and looks like it could use some renovations. The food was OK. But not fantastic the way it used to be. I had the Tuna special which arrived overcooked and was sent back. The replacement was the right temperature. But, the seasoning was bland. My dining... More

Hopefully, it was just a bad night. Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend isn't prime time, and it's possible they were using B-list staffers. Unlike the many other times we've dined here, our food was merely good. (It's usually wonderful, which it should be at this price point.) But along with the view (décor and people), it's always been the service... 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.
