We serve lunch at THE GRILL at both THE GRILL and THE POOL. You may be seated in either THE GRILL or THE POOL. The menus are the same during lunch service. You may make a request to be seated in either room, however, we cannot guarantee seating in a specific room.

THE GRILL is a mid-century American Chophouse created by Mario Carbone, Jeff Zalaznick and Rich Torrisi. ​It is housed in the only landmarked restaurant in New York inside the iconic Seagram Building and takes great inspiration from it's surroundings.

As it's name implies, the grill is meaningful to the restaurants style, service and food. Major Food Group takes great pride in celebrating the tradition of great food and great fun in one of the world's greatest restaurant spaces.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.2

The Grill is the revamp of the legendary Four Seasons restaurant, run by the people behind Carbone. It’s very similar, very expensive, and worth it.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

Great food prepared simply so that the full flavors of it shine. Had the half bronzino and it was an ample serving for one person. Fish was perfectly cooked and the drizzle of salsa verde was just the right touch to amplify the full flavor of the fish. Started with the Tuna Ravigote which was amazing. The placement of the tuna on the very small cucumber rounds accentuated the taste. Finished with the lemon chiffon cake which was rich and delicious. Oh, and the rice pilaf was excellent. Different than any pilaf I have ever had but it was delicious. And one of the best Boulevardiers - cocktail was expertly prepared and highlighted the entire meal. Excellent venue.

We arrived early waited a least half hour for our reservation. Place was busy. Food is outrageous. Service is good. Ambience is good. I thoroughly enjoyed my dessert. It’s always a good experience overall at The Grill.

Impossibly loud music piped in over the chatter coming from the bar makes for a very uncomfortable experience. Wait staff was condescending - maybe because we were three “mature” women. Raw oysters were less than tasty but rest of meal - chateaubriand with sides-were well flavored. Sommelier helped select excellent bottle of wine.

We went for a special occasion and the entire experience was excellent. The prime rib is perhaps the finest I have ever had. The crab louis salad is an excellent starter to share.

The lighting was way off, which had a big affect on the overall ambience. It was too dark and the Pool Room felt sad and not cozy and luxurious like it used to.

Had a 6:30 reservation and on time.
Four of us were seated at a very loud table and they kindly moved us.
However, we all felt very rushed with food delivery and hovering over to see if we were finished. We spent a great deal of money and i was very disappointed with the overall service.
I will probably will not go back again.
However, I did go to The Pool a year ago or so and it was so nice and relaxing.

If they run out of prime rib their signature dish on a Friday night at 8 pm they will offer you a six inch bone so you can see what you missed. You. won’t know they are selling it to you until you get the $21 charge on bill. Many more problems but that sort of explains the whole night. The wines were great though.

If you are looking for a fine dining experience that you must go to The Grill for dinner. Hands down one of the nicest restaurants I have been to. From the greeting when you check in to the your waiter to the bus staff to the manager, they make you feel welcome and impress you with everything they do. The ambiance is unbelievable, absolutely beautiful!!
The food is to impress as well. Having my prime rib carved in front of me was a nice touch. The occasion meals were excellent. They made a special for is that much more Please be aware that you do pay a nice price for this but it’s something you won’t forget
