Visited for breakfast each morning during our stay at Four Seasons. A spacious elegant restaurant with excellent service overlooking Logan Square. Huge portions! The weekend breakfast buffet was superb

Fabulous, excellent, perfect, elegant, comfortable, attractive, outstanding, etc., etc. The Fountain is a great choice for any event or special occasion and you can actually have a quiet conversation here. Anything else to say is that I can only echo all the other 5-Star reviews.

Exquisite small portions. I ordered the pea soup and scallops, both prepared and presented beautifully. Bread was a little stale would be my only criticism. Also service is terrific but possibly a little too attentive/affected, but it goes with the fancy vibe.

The breakfast parfait of yogurt tasted like it was made days ago and kept in the fridge. Plus very little yogurt was in the glass. The Fountain has gone downhill.

When I am in Philadelphia, I always treat my hosts to brunch at the Four Seasons. It is elegant, varied, delicious and fresh. The service is impeccable. We always dress up and go to the Cathedral for Mass across the street, but many families and hotel guests come as they are, so it's all kinds welcome. Yes, it's pricey, but... More

Any one who did not like this place doesnt know good food, service or real dining. This is not a place where loud music blasts, tables turn over quickly and food is basic. so if you... More

We came here for our wedding anniversary and could not have been happier with the experience. The food was outstanding and the service over the top excellent.
