The Four Seasons Review

The landmark Seagram Building houses one of America's most famous restaurants, truly an only-in–New York experience. Owners Alex Von Bider and Julian Niccolini supervise the seating chart like hawks, placing power players in finance, entertainment, and New York society in prime positions for maximum visibility. The stark Grill Room, birthplace of the power lunch, has one of the best bars in New York (and the $28 two-course bar lunch is a steal). Illuminated trees and a gurgling Carrara marble pool characterize the more romantic Pool Room. The menu changes seasonally; there's a $75 prix-fixe pretheater dinner—a delicious indulgence. You can't go wrong with classic dishes like Dover sole, filet mignon, or crispy duck, but the restaurant moves with the times, so expect seasonal specials featuring luxe ingredients and preparations.

    Food Fit For A King!

    We just celebrated our future daughter-in-law's birtday at the Four Seasons and words cannot describe how spectacular our dinner was. Everything from the white truffle risotto to the huge lobsters was delectable. And, even though our bill ended up costing almost $2000 for a party of 6, we would go back in a heartbeat. It's a pleasure worth budgeting for!
