The Four Seasons has it all, the Pool Room is just beautiful, the food is exceptional, the service highly professional and not intrusive. It is a great choice for celebrating or even just a nice lunch.

From the moment that you arrive - it is first class service, ambiance, food. This is not just another restaurant with great food - the service is over the top. The food was some of the best that we have ever had in the world. If you are looking for a memorable evening - this is a must.

You have to appreciate this restaurant for its history, elegance, decor and exquisite service. The staff have been there for decades and have been trained to an incredibly high standard. The decor is very unique and interesting although it may not be to everyone's taste. The food is really excellent and is perfectly cooked. I can't say enough about the... More

Amazing service,ambiance and food. This past Friday my friend and I went for dinner. I had a gilt voucher and wanted to try out the Four Seasons. We had the choice of a bottle of wine and 3 appetizers. We chose octopus, pizza and charcuterie. It was a lovely meal and the servers were super attentive and nice. We were... More

I took my 20 year old daughter and 2 of her girlfriends here as part of a New York Weekend Christmas Getaway gift. It was on a Thursday night. We had early reservations as we had a Broadway show to go to. It was not crowded when we arrived, but got busier as we left. The service was unbelievable!! They... More

This is one of my favorite old fashioned restaurants in New York. The atmosphere, high ceilings and decor and bar alone make a visit worthwhile. The staff are top notch and you can tell they treat their profession as a calling. The food has been good every time I have come. The atmosphere is great and you can tell that... More

My partner and I were to have dinner with some friends of ours in NYC. Our only request was something not too busy so we could hear each other speak. Our friends suggested the Four Seasons Restaurant not related in any way to the hotel (where we stayed). The landmark interior designed by Mies van der Rohe was fantastic. We... More

I visited with 8 friends in January 2105, as we have done for several years. We will not be returning. The food was fairly good but not outstanding - a very average souffle, pasta served cold (obviously plated up onto a cold plate). The price was around 200 dollars a head, plus tips, for a three course meal with wine.... More

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.
