I was running about 5 minutes behind for breakfast, and once I was seated I was told that it was "impossible" to serve me breakfast. I then decided to have lunch, which was mediocre at best. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant

The pool room its beautiful, you can find some celebrities, and others you will wish not to find there like Donald Trump. The service is excelent, wine attendants and manager are the best! Delicious dishes!

So ...it's not even an exclusive room at the hotel (57th & Madison), it's like a shelf up on one side of the entrance. Now. It's all good quality and great service but it's bonkers prices. Four of us say down for breakfast that basically boiled down to three egg dishes, a muffin, juices and cappuccinos and expressos. The bill.... More

Not sure how this review will help, since our dining date and time was the very LAST seating and the LAST night at this iconic restaurant in the Pool Room. We started with cocktails in the Grille Room and they were lovely and gave us time to admire the architecture of the room and do some people watching. We were... More

What a wonderful place either for lunch in the Grill Room or dinner in the Pool Room. We were at THE LAST SUPPER IN THE POOL ROOM last night.

To a glorious room, and to really good food: goodbye to an experience that is rare to NYC. Ambience and politesse in dining. You will be missed, The Four Seasons = ( My black and blue steak will be found elsewhere, I gather.

The Four Seasons is closing in a few days and will depart their ever so classy premises in the Seagrams Building. My wife and I went back for one last memorable evening of fantastic food and wine....topped off with even better service. For some reason one feels that restaurants come and go....but the Four Seasons was forever. Was so pleased... More

It had been quite a few years since we had dined at this elegant restaurant in the landmark Seagram Building, but now that it is being forced to move, we were determined to return for one last "farewell" dinner. The setting is as beautiful as ever and the service superb. There was no question about which main course to order;... More

The food was incredible. It is a classic and "must see" before it leaves the original location. The atmosphere was good, but the clientele seemed very "old" and "stuffy." The service was very nice, but there was a busy table next to us and the waiter forgot our dessert... Was probably not worth the close to 1000 dollars, but it... More

This iconic spot will be sorely missed when it is forced to relocate. Always ate here when we lived in NYC, always a must when we visit. Food, service, ambiance is 5 star. Very friendly service, not stiff or formal in the least. Dinner again was wonderful and Hank is a joy. Love the Pool Room!

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.
