“Perplexing!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We ate our first meal on the island here since we were staying at the Lodge. The Dining Room was not very busy but the lobby area was full of patrons, which is why we preferred the Dining Room. We had a lovely server, Nani (sp). After our appetizers things went a bit haywire. Nani kept filling our glasses of wine, brought us some sorbet, etc. and finally confessed that there was a problem in the kitchen and there was a delay with our dinners. That was fine and Nani made our wait very pleasant. However, we waited for our meals for over an hour after finishing our first courses. I felt bad for Nani, that she had to try to keep us happy, which she did with the wine! My problem was that, we never saw a Manager to apologize and secondly, with the extra wine, by the time my meal arrived, I didnt have much of an appetite at that point. Nani graciously did not charge us for our wine, but disappointed in the management did not step up which is unexcusable for a Four Seasons property. Although Cheers to Nani!

“Wait staff made us feel special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This restaurant may seem a bit pricey but worth every penny. The wait staff were very attentive and the whole room sang happy birthday to me and they made a beautiful cake. Wonderful experience and terrific food!

Bartender was excellent even though he was very busy. Drinks were great and not overpriced. Setting was relaxed.
