Best Lounge in Philly 10/5/2008

This place is gorgeous. The entire room just got remodeled and it looks beautiful. I went with some friends for cocktails before having dinner in the Fountain and I will be back soon. The drinks are great and everyone is very friendly. The chairs and couches are super comfortable and you won't want to leave. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a classy lounge experience in Philadelphia Pros: Staff very friendly, ambiance great, awesome cocktails more

Best place to celebrate in Philadelphia 7/14/2008

We recently celebrated our anniversary at the fountain. We had 7:30 reservations on a saturday night and were promptly seated at a table by the window that had a great view of the Swann fountain. I had made the reservation using open table and had requested a table that had a view. Initial impression was that the dining room was breathtakingly beautiful. The flower arrangements are tasteful and memorable, the space is split up into several rooms and the tables are well spaced and above all the noise level is very low. We had the 6 course tasting menu with wine pairing ($110 for the six courses, $190 with wine). This ended up being the best meal I have had in the city of Philadelphia. The food is not over the top but simple, elegant and consisting of the best ingredients. For example we had a squid ink pasta with gulf shrimp in a saffron sauce that was perfectly paired with a French Rose. The asian inspired pork tenderloin cutlet with wilted spinach was paired perfectly with a Beaujolais and finally the best pairing of the night was the filet of beef paired with a smoky/ earthy Rioja. We requested that we would like to pick our own desserts and they were more than happy to accommodate us at no extra charge. The chocolate souffle here is the real thing; baked in a ramequin with a good inch of fluffiness above the vessel that contains it's chocolaty center. We enjoyed our dinner (& as we were staying at the hotel) so much that we returned the next morning for brunch ($68). The brunch consisted of a beautiful spread of appetizers & desserts nestled among lavish flower arrangements. You get to chose a main entree from six to seven choices that the waiter will fire upon your request. This was a great treat to end a perfect weekend getaway. I would elaborate on brunch but I am running out of characters for this review. FYI while dinner requires a Jacket, Brunch is upscale casual. The service above all is completely devoid of any pretension. Pros: Ambience is the best in philadelphia for a special occasion Cons: Other than price (which is justified by the ambience, food and service), none more

Nice night out 2/24/2008

My husband took me here for our 4-year anniversary. (We also brought our 14-months-old daughter along.) The restaurant scenery was beautiful. We had reservations and didn't have to wait long to be seated. Our waitress was very courteous and attentive. The food is somewhat pricey (ranging from around 12$ - 50$) but is exceptional. I had the warm duck salad as first course and cleaned the whole plate! The salad is full of flavors like no other salad I've ever tried before. I followed with the crab cakes (which was good also) while my husband had filet mignon. His filet mignon was about the size of a fist costing 36$ but was very delicious. We finished our meal with creme brulee for dessert (they even wrote "Happy Anniversary" on it.) We enjoyed the whole dining experience & would love to come back again (except next time we probably would get a babysitter for our daughter..she would not sit still there!) If you're willing to spend the money & want to find a restaurant that endulges your senses, this is your place for a perfect date. more

Don't Waste Your $$$ 11/6/2007

I went to the Swann Lounge for a bridal brunch this past weekend and what a disappointment! Hot food should be hot, but it was luke warm. The meat was dry... tasted more like saw dust. Kitchen staff did not do a good job filling up food stations... many items were left empty. Not only that -- I found hair in my dessert! For $68 per person, it's inexcusable! Pros: Courteous wait staff Cons: Everything else! more

One Fountain, Too Many Streams 7/22/2007

I've just returned from Sunday brunch at Fountain. The interesting thing about brunch at Fountain is that you cannot also take food from the Swann Lounge, whose own enormous and appetizing buffet is visible literally 20 steps away. Amusingly, I remember eating brunch at the Swann several years ago and finding it frustrating that I couldn't take advantage of the artful buffet in Fountain. The imaginary barrier between the restaurants does not work at all for me. Fountain is supposed to be the more upscale of the two restaurants, but this Sunday the Swann Lounge had a warmer atmosphere figuratively and literally (the temperature in Fountain was much too cold). The light in Swann Lounge was brighter, suiting a Sunday morning, and the live musicians were better placed for the Loungers. Our food was good, though not stellar. I had the "celebration of flavours" special, whose cost, like that of the other entrees, was inclusive of any choices from the buffet (the Fountain buffet, anyway). Some personal opinions: The avocado base for my lobster tail was overly spicy. The sauce in the mash potatoes that came with the veal(?) tongue was a touch too strong. The servers were friendly and helpful. Assuming the room temperature is usually warmer, this seems a safe bet for a mid-to-high quality meal. more

BAR NONE, BEST Restaurant in Philadelphia 9/19/2006

The Fountain is the top restaurant in Philadelphia, PERIOD. I have dined at all the fab spots (Le Bec-Fin, Pasion, Capital Grille, etc.) around town and find this to be the place that achieves near perfection in every possible way. Jim, our repeat server, is a master of recommending tastes that meld perfectly throughout the evening. The lobster is simply phenomenal. The soups here are impeccably mixed and especially fragrant. The desserts are out of this world! Prices are quite high, as one would expect at The Four Seasons, but for special occasions I would rather spend the extra cash than risk the event falling flat somewhere else. You will also encounter some of the most charming, interesting, handsome and well-mannered people in town (or visiting) sidling up to you at the bar. The Fountain is, for me, a dream come true for Philadelphia. Did I forget to mention that the flower arrangements both inside the dining room and the lobby make those at the Ritz and the Rittenhouse look like a 5-year old put them together? Take the extra time to smell the roses here... it's a multi-sensory experience you shouldn't miss! Pros: Incredible... period. Cons: Expensive... but soooooo worth it! more

A Lovely Spot for Brunch or Drinks 4/15/2006

The Four Seasons can not be topped for a lovely place in Philly to relax and enjoy, whether it is for brunch, lunch, or drinks. Pros: beautiful setting, comfortable seating, top notch service more

Good, but... 10/18/2005

We had a good meal here, but it was not as good as we would have hoped. more

Relax relax relax 7/6/2005

This is my choice for a late evening cocktail. Sit in a big comfy chair in a gorgeous setting. Excellent drink list. Pimm's cup with Pellegrino Limonata, delicious. Linen cocktail napkins, linen coasters emroidered with the Four Seasons logo and all those little touches you only notice because you've never had it so good until now. It is THE perfect place to have a drink and relax. Pros: Atmosphere, Service, Little touches Cons: Close before 2am more

Mr. Ford 6/4/2003

Over all, The Fountain was very good. The food was was very good, although only the main course impressed me (the veal). We arrived at 6:00 pm and were seated promptly. When the room started to fill up, our waitresss became hard to find and the main course arrived two and a half hours after we were orignially seated. The Fountain comes no where near Le Bec in any way. more

Can't knock this joint! 10/13/2002

This place has class through and through. I'm a picky guy, and I have no complaints! Everything from the china to the linens to the bread is top shelf. I can't in all honesty say it was THE greatest meal of my life, but it DOES rank with Le Cirque, Gotham, and Jean Georges. And the service exceeds those!!! Pros: service, valet parking Cons: couldn't find a con more

Rating 8/25/2002

Absolutely extraordinary. The most amazing food I have ever had in my life. Extremely expensive, but for a special occasion, or if you can afford this kind of thing, GO! Pros: The food, The food, The food Cons: The price more

disappointing service 8/23/2002

My girlfriend took me out for my birthday to the Fountain Restaurant. The food was incredibly good, but the service was disappointing. It was good enough for a second rate restaurant, but when we are going out for a special occasion and spending $300 for a dinner for two, I expect the wait staff to be meticulous about the small things and help make it a memorable night. Instead they appeared that they thought that since we are in our twenties we can't tell bad service. more

best brunch 8/11/2002

Swan & fountain offer the best brunch experience in tghe US. I've been around and seen nothing like it. more

Choc 7/24/2002

An Anniversary to Remember 6/26/2002

I my opinion, the best restaurant in Philadelphia. I recently visited the Fountain for my fifth wedding anniversary. We had been there before celebrating the very same event. The server remembered us from our previous visit. We felt "right at home" in the restaurant. I will agree with another reviewer and make the same claim; it is not at all stuffy, the food is fabulous, and the service is impeccable. The Fountain is everything a fabulous restaurant should be. I highly recommend the experience. Pros: Extremely attentive, Fabulous food, Best Service Cons: Not one con more

Elegant, yet understated 6/13/2002

I have personally been to both Le Bec Fin and Fountain and I would have to say Fountain is the better of the two. Le Bec Fin is way too stuffy and being a young person (26) I particularly did not appreciate the weird looks from the other patrons. As for Fountain, the food is filling, however you do not feel stuffed at the end. Best rabbit, corn soup, and squab I have ever tasted. Service is attentive and unobtrusive and the room was so big it felt like we were the only people dining there. Pros: ambiance, food, service more

Editorial

  • In Short
    Nestled in the back of the Four Seasons' lobby, this restaurant's muted golds, rich fabrics and warm woods swathe spacious, posh dining rooms. Here, upscale clientele feast on elegant dishes that mingle German flavorings with French cuisine: tissue-thin venison carpaccio with juniper-flavored grapes or a butternut squash soup. The salmon in cider vinegar sauce with apple and potato strudel also is a popular dish. For dessert, choose from aged cheeses or the chocolate souffle.
