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.

The Best for All Seasons for Too Many Reasons

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... read 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

I had my third anniversary dinner here with my boyfriend and I thought that the place did not match up with the price we paid. I made reservations well in advance-two weeks prior- and was looking forward to eating in the pool room. I requested to be sat right next to the pool, but we ended up having a table... More

What a lovely venue and after many, many years they will be moving (next year)... We were seated at a table 'around the pool'. Service is exquisite. The food can be very rich. The wine selection is quite good. I started with a crab cake which was superb and shared an entre of crispy duck with a plum sauce that... More

What a treat to dine in a New York landmark building with a landmark interior design restaurant. Service is excellent and the chef's seasonal food choices are excellent. Great choice for a special occasion.

For us, this is a special occasion restaurant and it was the spot we picked to meet family during our recent trip to NYC from San Francisco.

Last Saturday night 3 couples celebrated our birthdays at this prestigious NYC landmark restaurant. We dined in the beautiful Pool Room and while the food was good it was not great but the prices were outrageously expensive. We generally enjoyed the meal until a roach or water bug appeared on the wall right behind us ! The maître de simply... More

I often take out of town visitors to the Four Seasons for an elegant, quiet, sophisticated, and delicious evening. The restaurant had just shifted (following its name) into spring, with large flowering trees at the corners of its pool room--cherries, i think. This time I took my Dallas relatives. We had different meals--Dover sole, soft-shell crabs, crab cakes--and they were... 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.
