Service was good this time.
Tomahawk was disappointing, not worth 220$.
Salmon tartare had way too much dill and was missing something.
Pasta with crab was ok but very small portion.
Tomatoes with burrata was lacking taste, usually much better.
Strawberry tart was the best thing.

Excellent repas avec mon conjoint. Le service est impeccable, on est traité aux petits soins. La nourriture est fraîche, savoureuse et les portions sont adéquates (pas de portions excessives qu’on gaspille). Le menu a la carte est diversifié et on peut profiter de la table sucrée avec viennoiseries et pâtisseries. Le café est très bon! Et que dire de l’ambiance, le restaurant est juste trop beau, très classe, avec de la verdure! J’ai adoré et je reviendrais très certainement.

This was truly an exciting evening! The location is on point...wait staff amazing...and food ranks with the best I've ever eaten. The only recommendation for improvement is to have signage posted at the elevators indicating where one goes to check in. For a moment, I felt like I was on a safari! ;)

The restaurant is very beautiful. The food was good but our waitress was a bit phony.

Couldn't name the four different fishes on our fish charcuterie board. Also mentioned that there was a rillette on the board before we ordered. When I made the remark, never said sorry, bring it afterward or deduce it from the check.

I ordered the only Porto on the menu that was $9 but she brought the $25 Porto without validating with me first. When I made the remark on the difference in my prining with my check, she showed the Porto price to me from a different menu.

Her attitude changed when we said that we didn't want dessert... our total check was $500 before service...

We were staying at the Four Seasons, so chose this for convenience. We had dinner on a Thursday evening and although the open air atmosphere was lovely, the crowd at the bar seemed to overflow into the restaurant and take away from the dining experience. The food was very heavily slanted to seafood, and since my husband has a shellfish allergy, and I don’t like seafood, options were a bit limited. I would have liked steak, but there was only a steak for 2 (50 ounces) on the menu. I ended with the lamb, which was ok, but would have preferred a nice filet My husbands fish was good, but again nothing special. The salad was really good and side of fries was great. If you love seafood, this would be a great choice. But seeing that this restaurant also served as the hotels restaurant, it would be nice to see more variety.

Service is terrible. Half our table received their entree the other half had to wait another 15 min and once their got their order it was all wrong and another 10min to make it right.

The staff does no know how to handle situations and offering a desert on the house doesn’t cover for bad service.

It’s such a waste when the food and ambiance is really good that it gets destroyed by incompetent service.
