Hooker Central... 5/11/2011

It's awkward to go for a few drinks when you are surrounded by hookers! Don't waste your time and money. more

There is "Expensive-but-worth-it" and there is "Expensive-and-WTF"? 2/15/2009

This is a twenty-something guy that doesn't mind laying down $300 for a fine and delicious meal for 2 on special occassions. But $500 for a dinner for two that didn't include Wine? Are you freaking kidding me? Pros: Beautiful Restaurant, environment is very upsale. Cons: Unless you're a 40+ man that loves throwing money, this restaurant is not for you. more

Best Occasion Dining 1/10/2009

Menu items were innovative. Service was top notch. The pool room was the most relaxing dining ambience that I've ever experienced in Manhattan. Our server even presented us with a great presentation of cookies and cotton candy with a candle at the end of our lunch. I'd love to come back soon, if I can only get a reservation at one of the few places where reservations are still hard to come by. Pros: Ambience (Pool Room), Bread Basket, Service Cons: Takes a while, if you're in a rush more

nice dinner 11/30/2008

Very grateful for my parents who invite me to really nice dinners. And The Four Season was definitely good...but way overpriced for the portions. And a little too upscale for my liking. The grilled octopus appetizer was amazing. The steak was good. All in all, an intimate restaurant for special occasions . more

Classic 11/28/2008

Its what you would expect. Old world charm with new cuisine. Always elegant and great service a new york classic! I usually frequent more trendy dining establishment but visit the historic sites are just as good. more


We went for dinner and it was the highlight of my trip to New York. The decor was awesome when you walk in there is a different set up for each season of the year and they also have sections for intimate and romantic settings. The food was excellent, but the portions were small and VERY expensive. The service was top class, but there is a strict dress code for both men and women. more

Not because you are "The Four Seasons"... 11/1/2008

you are allowed to charge an arm and a leg for a romatic dinner. The food was excellent as well as service, however, I left The Four Seasons very dissappointed. I do not think dinner in Manhattan should cost $400.00 where I am not swept off my feet. more

Great food,excellent service 10/7/2008

I've been visiting this restaurant a lot lately and I will most indeed keep going there. The menu has a little bit of everything, the presentation is brilliant and the food is simply amazingly cooked. They seem to have changed the manager recently and the new one seems to be making a difference. The service and customer attention has improved greatly. I feel almost at home when I'm there and the serving is fast and efficient. So has the cocktail menu, too. That is certainly the way to business growth. more

Elegence! 5/3/2008

A visit to "The Four Seasons" is a venture into elegance. The moment you are escorted in you become royalty. You will remember your visit as one of the special important event in your life. Savor it to it's fullest. No matter whom yo may be! more

Good Experience 1/14/2008

During our trip to NYC, we made reservations to dine in the pool room of the Four Seasons for their pre-theater menu (offering a modified menu for $65 pp). The wine list was extensive - though the staff did not seem knowledgeable about wine pairings. The bread we received was horrible - rock hard and cold - and the "free" appetizer of olives was disappointing. However, our main course was wonderful. I had fish and my husband had the filet - both of which exceeded our expectations. The dessert (we had a pear torte) was good - but, once again, the staff was unable to provide appropriate drink suggestions. When we inquired about ports - the waitress listed off several but did not know taste variations or cost. Not what I would expect for the price and prestige of this location. All in all, I would return - as it was a beautiful restaurant - but I hope the staff pays more attention to the little details in the future. Pros: Ambience, Main Course Cons: Price, Unknowledgeable staff more

I was speechless! 12/10/2007

I was speechless by the horrible food. I attended a holiday dinner at the restaurant, and the food was majorly disappointing. Rather than eating the meat entree being offered, I requested a vegetarian dish. Rather than preparing vegetarian dish, the chef presented me with a plate of steamed vegetables (minus sauce, seasoning, or any form or aesthetic presentation). I was so stunned, and I left the dinner hungry and majorly disappointing. This place survives on reputation alone. I will NEVER return. Pros: The decor in the pool room is interesting, although the entire place should be updated. Cons: HORRIBLE food more

great service, food is very good (i wouldn't say phenom), decor & peeps good enough for my taste. more

Definitely Slipping! 4/12/2007

I have been dining at the Four Seasons regularly since 1967. It has been one of my favorite restaurants. Therefore my recent experience was a surprise and disappointment. Our waiter was bored and indifferent and monosylabically answered inquiries. The food and plates arrived microwave hot. Most items were average at best and uninspired. One dessert was terrible. The room remains fantastic but considering the prices, a beautiful space isn't sufficient reason for me to return. more

It was alright.... 1/11/2007

Went here for a treat a few weeks ago. While the service was one of the best I have seen, I felt the place to be extremley overrated. There are so many better places to go in the city! I don't consider the restaurant romantic at all (city search lists that as one of the restaurants ammenities). If you do decide to splurge 500 on the dinner, request to sit next to the pool. more

Expensive but a real treat 11/20/2006

Quite simply the best restaurant in NYC I've been too. Service is impeccable. Personally however, decor does nothing for me. more

Bring your friends from out of town 11/12/2006

The Pool Room is the best place to eat, especially if you're entertaining. The "flowing" curtains and the pool in the center of the room make the atmosphere unique and enjoyable. The hot fois gras is a must try and the specials are always worth the risk. And if you're daring, get the cotton candy for dessert! Pros: Service, food, atmosphere Cons: pricy, usually have to wait for your table more

not worth it 10/30/2006

this is a resturant that lived too long on their rep. Pros: my mother got to brag she went here Cons: the food that was sent back more

The Four Seasons 10/16/2006

Restaurant was nice. Atmosphere was not romantic. Do not go during the weekdays, since you will only see OLD people. Food was OK, but too expensive for the price. I would not recommend this to others. Cons: It is for 80 year olds, not for young people more

A New York Must Do! 8/24/2006

Exceptional Service. The food as well as presentation is well worth it. The pool room is a must. Request a table next to the pool. Try the Farmhouse Duck, it is unsurpassed as are the Crab Cakes, The Vichyssoise, delightful. Desserts were awesome. Fabulous selection. If the idea of the cost is frightening try a pre-theatre menu. You simply can not pass it up. more

Owner Message

  • No restaurant is a better symbol of New York than The Four Seasons. Designed by legendary architects Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson, the restaurant is a modern classic that has been redefining American cuisine since 1959.

    Winner of Where Magazine's Best Food in New York award, The Four Seasons recently seduced New York magazine with "adventurous new flavors and marvelous pairings."

    When planning a visit to The Four Seasons, be sure to give your guests the address (52nd St b/w Park and Lexington Aves). Otherwise they may end up at a hotel chain by a similar name, rather than the restaurant that New Yorkers love.

    Menu items include whole roasted pheasant, saffron aoli bouillabaisse and filet of bison with foie gras and truffle sauce.


  • The Four Seasons is totally unique as a New York institution: For over half a century it's defined the New York power restaurant experience. The world's leading moguls, millionaires and bankers...
