The hotel's lobby is one of the great pieces of interior architecture in New York City.

Sitting in the Garden Restaurant is a delight. Service is terrific. Food excellent.

Tables are generously spaced so private conversation is easy.

I always have the same thing for lunch.......cobb salad (chopped and tossed)........my favorite breakfast and lunch place in NYC

“Pricy but yummy”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I just happen to looove low fat goat milk yogurt and sometimes well mostly never I find it on a menu so I was super happy they had it. I think the price is way over the top but it is the four seasons and service is excellent¡

“Four Seasons, Five Stars”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

This was the best breakfast we had in New York during out stay. Reading some of the reviews from other people I was unsure on what to expect, as some reviews varied from an average 3 stars to 5 stars. However The Garden restaurant lived up to great expectations with quality, fast service and exceptional food. The tables were generously spaced out, and the restaurant wasn't overly noisy at all.

We went for breakfast and had a reservation for 7:30am. We arrived slightly early at 7:20am, yet this was not a problem, as we were seated immediately. The presentation of the restaurant itself was amazing, it looked exactly as the pictures on the Four Seasons website shows, a classy but comfortable environment.

We were offered drinks at the very start which were brought out straight away without any delay. We ordered 2 juices, a latte and a tea. All were of a very good quality, especially the latte.

We then moved onto the main breakfast, for which we had the belgian waffle and the park avenue breakfast, again both were of an extremely high quality. The ingredients used were all sourced locally and very good.

The cheque arrived when asked for, and we didn't feel pressured to pay and leave as quick as possible. The price of courses and the drinks here reflects the quality, hot drinks and fresh fruit juices are around $10 and the breakfast itself ranged from $26 for the belgian waffle and $43 for the all-frills Park Avenue breakfast.

“Accommodating and Satisfying”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

The food is good! Is it worth the cost? Depends on your budget. We had a lovely breakfast for two with no alcohol - $120.00.

“High Quality, Excellent Service”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Service is everything, and these folks scored top marks. The food was what you would expect, high quality, high prices. Lovely atmosphere, friendly, flexible staff who anticipated our every need. I have to search hard for a complaint, but okay, here's the only one I can think of: nothing to put my tea bag on once my tea was properly steeped. Even our adult sons commented that the place was very attractive and did a good job. High praise from them.
