I love the Swann Lounge and it is the perfect place for a drink, light snack in the evening, reading the Sunday paper. But, having tea here is my favorite. There are a dozen loose leaf teas from which to choose (pear caramel is worth having) and an assortment of finger sandwiches (smoked salmon, cucumber, apricot with cream cheese) as well as scones, desserts, clotted cream, jam, and lemon curd. Everything is delicious. It's absolutely a wonderful way to spend part of your afternoon. Looking forward to my next visit!

Went here for Sunday Brunch on Penn's graduation weekend. We had reservations but were asked to wait and have a drink outside on the terrace. We were there a little early, but only 15 minutes. We had a drink on the terrace and then it was after the time that our reservation was to be. So my husband asked if we could be seated as there were tables that were empty. Overall, the food and beverages were fantastic. We went towards the end of the brunch so anything that was well received by the diners was ultimately gone and not replaced. Other than that, it is what you would expect from the Four Seasons.

Was ok to dress casually. Lots of space between tables. Noise level was perfect. Great menu too. We joined another family there on a Fri eve and it was ok for us to bring kids and sit around a big table.

We had tickets to see the Beyonce Concert and stayed at the Four Seasons. This lounge is always hopping with good people and the conversation cannot be beat.

The best Bombay Sapphire martini can be found here and the best complement would the artisan cheese plate.
