The Four Seasons is a New York original, with a stunning, landmarked interior designed in 1959 by Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson. It caters to a faithful clientele of Gothamite high-rollers and power-lunchers, serving an American menu that offers few surprises but usually manages to satisfy everyone's tastes. Located in Park Avenue’s historic Seagram Building, this is the place to order things like Ossetra caviar with rösti potato, steak tartare prepared tableside, and chateaubriand with haricots verst and béarnaise sauce, then sit back and dine like a grown-up.

  • Best thing I ever ate: Cotton Candy
  • Pool room was beautiful and romantic. Excellent service and excellent food. Prices are a bit steep but to be expected.
  • Yeah, that's Donald Trump two tables over, which explains why our table was ignored until he left. Don't expect them to remember which occasion you said you were celebrating, either.
  • Gorgeous space. Expensive, as it should be.
  • Beautiful decor! great food! Amazing service! Julian is awesome! First time definitely not my last!
  • The filet of bison is outstanding.
  • Cant go wrong with the Maryland Crabcakes!
  • Kevin Sbraga loves this place! -Kevin Sbraga, Top Chef
  • The duck my friends, the duck.
  • Expensive but every bite is amazing. Warm fois gras and yuzu souffl were definite stand-outs. And eat at the counter... more action and more exciting!
  • The service was great, but the crab cakes weren't up to snuff. The duck however was outstanding!!!
  • Check out the Wine List on the IPAD
  • There's a giant scoop of fresh strawberry ice cream underneath the pile of cotton candy u get for free if it is a special occasion...
  • Try the burgers. Hands down the best in NY. Why this restaurant is not on the best burger list, I dont know.
  • Sit in the pool room by the pool, order the chef's tasting menu and ask that you and your partner get different dishes. One should be the Nantucket Bay scallops with black truffle risotto.
  • The normal exclusive Four Seasons standard ... Just as always .. Phenomenal
  • Stunning interiors.. Sit by the bar to observe Wall Street sharks share interesting tales!
  • Merita una cena o un pranzo non solo per la cucina. Gli interni realizzati da mies van der rohe sono intatti e il bagno delle donne ha una bellissima anticamera.
  • Completed in 1959 (landmarked 1989) and designed by Philip Johnson, this is one of the finest International Style interiors in the US. Its located inside the Seagram building, another City landmark.
  • Located in the Seagram's building, going the Four Seasons is like stepping onto the set from Mad Men. Its pretty pricey but worth it for the food and the experience.
