We haven't been back to the Four Seasons in years, and went with a couple who are frequent diners here. I had the butter lettuce salad and it was delicious, while others had the beet appetizer and remarked on how tasty it was. The entree of dover sole was the best I've ever tasted! My husband had the salmon and... More

After reading an article in Vanity Fair regarding the restaurant and the Seagram Building, I decided to have lunch in the Grill Room. Absolutely delicious. The food is very filling and a little heavy, but the ambiance and history of the restaurant cannot be missed.

We ate here on a recommendation but it wasn't worth the journey. We had the three course lunch at 59 dollars. The appetisers were excellent but it then went downhill pretty fast. I'm not a big eater but even so the main of roast quail left much to be desired- in flavour, quantity and presentation and the desert of cheesecake... More

Some reviews obviously don't know what they are talking about because The Four Seasons. And , I should know because I lived in New York for thirty years. I was in New York for business and took clients out for dinner especially since they had never been there before. I had the foie gras and the Dover sole. Both were... More

Hoping this iconic restaurant's lease is renewed. The fabled Pool Room is an architectural masterpiece. The beauty of its space stands way above the rest. Splendid service compliments and enhances this handsome & quiet room. We did not drink so have no comment. We chose the $75 pre-theater prix fixe. I ordered the beets & goat cheese appetizer. She ordered... More

It's the feel you get when you walk up the stairs and stand just a little taller as you approach the check in desk. It's the sound of clicking high heals as you walk past the Picasso tapestry, now in the collection of the New York Historical Society, and see it even though it's no longer there after more than...

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

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.
