“worst meal in town”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

we had a dinner arranged in the Italian Restaurant, booked for a part of 4 via our friends Black American Express service. Upon arrival we were told the restaurant was closed. We questioned this as we had a confirmed booking but nobody bothered to get back or apologise. We ended up having dinner in the Moroccan Restaurant. The fod was only just ok but the wine service was terrible. We ordered a bottle of Montrachet and were presented with a bottle of Pommerol instead. We then opted for a Sancerre which was warm and we were told that the fridge had broken down........A meal for just under 4000.- MAD was a big waste of time and money.

“Surprise!! Closed.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We had booked a reservation here for dinner with some friends only to arrive and find it closed. We were directed to the other restaurant, Solano, which was a huge disappointment (took them 4 tries to get the correct bottle of white wine which was not chilled, then brought a red which they promptly stuck into a bucket of ice!). The management never apologized or tried to explain what had happened. Certainly not up to our usual Four Seasons experience!

“Magnificent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We had the most fabulous dinner last week at Bleu d'Orange at the Four Seasons Hotel. I made the reservation before we left the UK and expecting a busy restaurant, thought it would be best to book in advance. I additionally added that we would take a drink in the rooftop bar prior to dinner.

Imagine my surprise then then when we arrived and escorted up to the bar which was totally empty! Unbeknown to us, the entire Four Seasons was booked out by BMW for a conference, and so everyone was eating in the main hotel restaurant. None the less Frederico and his amazing team opened the bar just for us. As it was cold, he suggested if we prefered, we coul go into the hotel's Cuban Bar for pre-dinner drinks. The Bleu D'Orange had no reservations apart from us, so once again we were treated to a private dining experience.

The food, the service, the general atmosphere was superb. We even went back up to the Cuban Bar later where there was live music (and by now, some hotel guests too).

Everything about the experience was amazing from start to finish. A definite treat (as it's not cheap)! But worth every penny for what we had.

Thank you for a marvelous evening.
