Worthwhile for Sunday Brunch

We were pleasantly surprised by the variety. Staff were extremely attentive and all of the food items were replenished quickly. The family next to use requested vegetarian dishes that were off menu; sous chef came out, explained what he could do and made it happen. It's been quite some time since I... read more

Terrific bar and bartenders were sociable but not too pushy. Atmosphere is elegant but relaxed. We enjoyed the vegetables from the lounge menu: mushrooms, asparagus, chick peas, etc. they also serve high tea here.

Made my cocktail to my specification with no talk back. Maintained a reasonable amount of conversation and was very accurate in his information.

With the Fountain Restaurant now closed, the Swann is not only broadening its menu, but also coming up with some creative and special events around food and wine. Now that it is the "star" attraction at the hotel, it seems much more confident in it's cooking while expanding its offerings. And the prices sure beat the Fountain!

Came to experience the new Sunday lunch buffet, and I can assure you it doesn't disappoint. Service was as expected from a four seasons (notably Chris our server) clear explanation on how things work and the food explanation. As with all buffet, majority of people re fill and re fill their plates, of which staff where always on top in... More

As you can see I have a great many hotel reviews, but none like this. This is the first time I wrote a review about a hotel I didn't sleep in. I was at the Four Seasons for a quick afternoon meeting with people from out of town staying at the hotel. We met in the lounge for a quick... More

I stopped in for a quick drink and dinner, and the staff was attentive and the food was great. Definitely worth checking out if you're staying at the Four Seasons.

Thus event was fantastic for young girls. Service was well done, as was the tea and food offerings (and alcohol for adults if you want).

Sampled 3 of their cocktails (between three of us) and ate grilled salmon and a first class cheesesteak. Excellent and friendly service in a first class bar - quiet even thought there were plenty of patrons there.
