Joy, our server, was wonderful and her suggestions for food were on point!
She was so warm and attentive, we really felt looked after and valued! She’s doing an amazing job!

I was impressed with all the measures being taken for our safety during this pandemic. There was more than adequate social distancing and hygiene measures being taken.

The food was so good! You must try the crispy chicken bites! Definitely going back!

We made a reservation and were given a poor table that honestly looked like it could have been the waiting area. It was directly next to the hosts area. We then asked to switch our spot to a nicer table to which the host said that could not happen. She then proceeded to give individuals who had come without a reservation the nicer tables. We then waited a ridiculous amount of time for our drinks and our host even forgot to put our orders in. Was not a good experience, expected a lot more.

It was a very great experience, i came in 1st time but I came late but I made it through the 2nd and that’s funny 😂, I really like it, the foods that they serve, the service is absolutely stunning, very polite, professionals, the amenities, even though they don’t have my favourite cocktail which is the Aviation which is not enough ingredients to make it but it’s okay, that’s the reasons why I came but no worries.
everyone follows safety procedures, clean, very friendly environment, to the servers I appreciate you.
as a Pilot visiting all places around the world and check different restaurants, food, cultures.
this place is absolutely gorgeous, overall what can I say, I definitely come back again. 👍

We really enjoyed being back to dbar. As always welcoming atmosphere and great food and drinks.
Health protocol is in place: as were were entering the hotel overall - upon arrival we were asked a couple of health related questions and had our body temperature checked.

Highly recommend for relaxing chat and drink or lovely dinner.

Upon arrival I informed the hostess i had back injury and required a couch seat as I noticed several empty ones. She stated she would look into it but never got back to me. Asked the server if he could look into it, never got back to me.

Food was mediocre at best not too many options, tried the watermelon tartare it wasn’t the best, server did not even fill my cup or asked if i wanted more drinks.. i guess fourseasons really going down hill. Ill just stick to hazelton and ritz from now.

First time back in six months - the menu has changed, and not for the better. Some of the best items are gone, as are small sized salads. Dessert was not fresh, but not surprising given the place was almost empty. I won’t be rushing back, which is too bad since I used to go multiple times per week.

Very disappointed with our recent visit. Booked high tea and called direct to confirm. When we arrived we were told they didn’t have us confirmed for tea. So we had 2 sets of high tea. My kids had to order from menu. They were out of gnocchi and so decided to bring squash ravioli without asking if that was acceptable, which is wasn’t. Had to order another meal and by the time it arrived everyone else at the table was finished. Our server was very apologetic and did offer drinks with out charging us which was all she could do. I don’t think this was worth the money for the experience we had. Not up to four season standards

The octopus was definitely exceptional, as was the Cobb Salad - but everything else was classic and very good. One could argue that it lacked a certain creative flair, but delivered what you expected at an optimal level.

Specifically requested the patio when making my reservation for Saturday lunch. Upon arriving at the restaurant, I was told that the patio was closed. No e-mail or phone call to inform me in advance and give me sufficient time to make alternate plans.
Cobb salad was sub-par, not even a touch of fanciness to justify the $27 price. A hard-boiled egg cut in two, three slices of deli turkey on top of plain lettuce. My home version is way more elegant (presentation and choice of garnishes), even though I am not a cook at Daniel Boulud's level...
Service was charming but could not compensate for the lackluster experience.

We had a great table, it was very comfortable and had enough privacy, but it offered a great view of the restaurant. Our server was very friendly, efficient and helpful. We were there for over 2 hours and didn’t feel rushed.

I was unable to reserve a table with chairs on the website and when we arrived the table we would have preferred had a reserved sign on it and the guests never showed up.

My guest found the couch uncomfortable even with the pillow and the table low.

However, the space was quiet which was nice.

The food was absolutely delicious and the presentation was on point. Warning - be prepared to pay Yorkville prices for your meal. It was very expensive but it's a lovely outing for a quite dining place inside. The outdoor patio is nice in the summer but can be quite loud given it's in a noisy area.

The worst Cobb salad ever...packaged turkey luncheon meat no Avacado or blue cheese to speak of,
Iceberg lettuce, greasy bacon. Just terrible.

Overall, our lunch was excellent. My colleague and I both started off with a caesar salad, a glass of Chablis followed by Gnocchi for her (she said was delicious), and the Flat Iron Steak for me which was, sadly, disappointing. The meat was tough and had grizzle - I did not finish my meal. For $39.00, I expected the meat to be tender and sans grizzle. Sad but true. I would not recommend the steak.

We finished the meal with coffee and creme brulee which was delicious.
