I have a penthouse in Manhattan. I am rarely surprised by the price. The cost of dinner at $100 per person without drinks demands the best. This was good maybe very good but it has neither the atmosphere not quality of food to support the prices.

I'll start with the only negative - we had an early reservation and the dining room was not busy when we arrived. There was a group of 4-5 servers in a huddle near our table having personal conversations - they moved slightly away, but not out of earshot. I was not expecting to see (or hear) this kind of behavior... More

My husband proposed to me in this restaurant almost 20 years ago. We've been back several times since then. The setting has remained the same. Some people think that it looks old and tired, I say – it looks like a classic beauty. The only thing that looks different is the giant pieces of art on the walls that say... More

It seems almost silly to review such an iconic restaurant, but at the same time fairness requires that we not pass over in silence what is truly excellent. The Four Seasons stands out as one of the top restaurants in NYC. The food is invariably excellent, the wine list wonderful (and prices to match). This is obviously a place for... More

Went to the Four Seasons last night with friends expecting an exceptional meal. My husband and I were extremely disappointed with the service and the food. We found the menu to be limited and extremely overpriced, to say nothing about the fact that what we ate was not exceptional cuisine. My duck was buried in sauce and quite tough. His... More

We ate in the pool room just before Christmas, and had a most enjoyable meal. Good food, excellent service and a spectacular setting.

Love this restaurant. Was looking forward to visiting it ever since we booked it! I was drawn to it for it's lovely surroundings and it was a little bit different with the pool (Pool Room). When inside, it has a lovely ambience - the more busy 'Grill Room' was much busier than the Pool Room when we went but we... More

In New York for 2 weeks my husband was looking forward to a really nice dining experience. Canceling our reservation at Peter Lugers in Brooklyn after hearing the service is horrible we opted to take the family to The Four Seasons on 52.nd St....Nice ambience for sure as we ate in the "pool room". There were five of us. My... More

Truly one of my favorite dining experiences while in NYC. The restaruant space is so very interesting - clean with a modern edge yet quite beautiful at the same time. Had dinner in the pool room with a great view. Dinner and wine was fabulous! Yes it is expensive but for our group it was worth it. Thanks for a... More

The Four Seasons restaurant is one of the most beautiful and iconic dining rooms I have had the pleasure to visit. It is an exceptional and classic Bauhaus architecture and design from Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson. It is a walk in, dine in museum piece. The décor could use a little work does not detract from... More
