Ambiance is great, very peaceful but food is quite disappointed. We ordered pumpkin soup which tasted like Indian food. Fried Oyster was very oily. Fishes were overcooked. However service was excellent. They knew we did not enjoy the food, they gave us free glasses of wine and dessert. We did appreciated their kindness but we go to fine restaurant mainly... More

The portion size was larger than expected and very good value for money. It was tasty and delicious. The service was good. The menu is quite limited but it was only for lunch and... More

I'm a native New Yorker and having been at the School of Art & Design four decades ago, I used to pass the Four Seasons a few times a week. I always "peeked in" and said I would, one day, be a guest. Philip Johnson and Mies van der Rohe, left a treasure and their indelible fingerprints in the International... More

We ate dinner at the Pool Room, which turned out to be very expensive - over $300 for two. We did not have a problem with the price because we knew that going in. What we did not think was up to a standard for this expensive a restaurant was the service. While we had three plus people attending our... More

I chose this restaurant as a surprise birthday treat for my partner's 30th. We were not disappointed. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and accommodated my requests I emailed beforehand. The food was excellent and very tasty. The waiter was very attentive and the free champagne topped off a wonderful meal. Thoroughly enjoyable and recommended.

Dining at the Four Seasons is always a treat. The space is spectacular - it's remarkable that IM Pei's sweeping design aesthetic has stood the test of time, offering a grand and majestic setting that is both understated and magnificent. Service is always impeccable with staff anticipating your every need and accommodating your every wish. There is nothing that the... More

So New York... What a beautiful "special occasion" place this is for dinner. We sat by the pool and the service was impeccable. The food was not the best I ever had but the experience was wonderful! Be prepared to spend a lot of money but clearly, you are paying for the joy of the experience! I would certainly go... More

We were in NYC celebrating our anniversary, and this was our "splurge" night for dinner and a show. We enjoyed the prix fixe menu, and the service of Guiseppe. The service, the food and the atmosphere in the pool room was impeccable. Our waiter provided us with their signature cotton candy treat, but still couldn't compare with the Grand Marnier... More
