Description: The Grill Room at The Four Seasons Restaurant is truly a New York phenomenon. Attracting New Yorkers for generations, it's played host to every major social event from JFK's 45th birthday party to Manhattan's last Grammy Awards celebration. Open Monday through Friday, the Grill Room is home to the original New York "Power Lunch." At night the Grill caters to those interested in flavorful cocktails and a bite to eat within Phillip Johnson's one-of-a-kind design.

The Mies/Philip Johnson interior of this exquisite restaurant propels the fortunate diner into instant Zen-mode. As a native New Yorker, I'm hard pressed to think of another venue that better shows off New York at its best and most sophisticated. If you're visiting the Big Apple from another continent and haven't yet been to the Four Seasons, GO!

I have been going to the Four Seasons for 20 years now. WE ahve our favorite foods and waiter and nothing has changed.
If it is a special occasion you will always receive the cotton candy with an unexpected surprise underneath.
The crispy duck is sensational and is a must to try. Order a souffle no matter waht flavor they are all good. They have the best cosmopolitan around.
Our waiter knows us by name we always ask for him when we go.
It truly is a special place for a special night. Depending on what season the trees in teh pool room will change
It is really beautiful.

Had dinner with my wife and friends. Service was extremely rude and the food was good but not anything special. If I was just with my wife I would have got up and left due to the rude wait staff.

This gem is well worth all the hype over decades...consider it perhaps a museum for culinary excellence where your palate will be educated and stimulated. Decor is premiere classic 60's, jaw-dropping, and the floral displays rotating with the seasons are inspired. You can't go wrong with a single choice here, the only problem is difficulty getting in without advance reservations and the cost, but all in all still well worth the effort.

I have dined at The Four Seasons many times but not for three years. I was disappointed last week. Most of the diners were wearing sport shirts with no ties; a no-no in years past. The usual crowd of regular diners seemed to be replaced with tourists celebrating birthdays, The waiters were indifferent and the details were ignored, eg, wines lists were scattered behind the tables, tables sat uncleared for many minutes, serving tables seemed to be used for depositories of dirty dishes, wine glasses went unfilled. I should have guessed things would be different when we noticed the bar and grill room were deserted and the owners were no where to be found on a Saturday night. It's not The Four Seasons of three years ago, sadly.
