We went to Seasons restaurant with my daughter for dinner. We loved the fact that we were able to talk in the restaurant and hear ourselves - classic music was nice and at appropriate volume in the background. The presentation of food and restaurant itself are outstanding. Waiters are very attentive and extremely polite. This is one of our favorite places to go when we want quality time, quality food and quality service.

We were unlucky, as the night we dined there the dining room was practically empty. There was a big rugby match next door in the RDS which probably reflected the lack of people dining in the hotel. The food was typical good quality hotel fare, nothing to get too excited about. The staff were very attentive. The only real irritation arrived when it was time to pay the bill. We had a 150 euro voucher. our meal cost 144 euro and I was going to bump it up to 160 euro to reflect the tip. A very embarrassed waiter returned to say our voucher covered the meal but we would not got the 6 euro change as the person who issued it originally now didn't work there. I was flabbergasted and glad we had used up most of the voucher so we only lost 6 euro. I didn't want to make a fuss but I shall never dine there again that's for sure

Myself and my husband took my parents there for Xmas lunch. I had requested a table not too far from the facilities as my parents are elderly. However we were placed right in the middle of the floor. To our right there was one business man on his laptop with a nice table to the side. His paperwork was spread across the table. He remained there for the whole time we had our meal. Behind us to the left there was a large table of at least 20 people including children having their xmas lunch. Presents were exchanged including scooters etc for the children. While trying to enjoy our meal, unfortunately for us we found ourselves surrounded by the excited children trying out their new toys including the scooters. The situation became very uncomfortable for us and we had to move table.

I ordered fillet steak medium. I have no doubt that my steak was reheated. It was shriveled and dry. My fathers steak came out rare. He had ordered medium. My father was unable to eat his steak and we called the waiter. The fondant potato had a strong flavor of "reheat". Similar taste to 'next day' reheated potato.

The desert was a huge disappointment. Definitely no pastry chef in the kitchen that day. The meringue lemon curd dessert I ordered was not homemade and definitely bought in. That is to say the meringue was "definitely from a box". My mother did not eat her trifle. She said there was no fruit in it. It was a glass of liquid.
Overall our dinner was a huge disappointment and I would 'highly' not recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

Not one member of staff approached us at the end of the meal to ask us how it went. This was symptomatic of the lunch.

The (2) menu was very limited. The food was average although inexpensive. In my view you don't go to the Four Seasons for a value meal. There was no dinner menu online I had steak which was of diner quality. There was virtually no starter choices that you could really consider we both ended up having soup. I asked twice in advance for a nice table. We ended up in the middle of floor and I was constantly being banged by passing waiters and other guests. In fairness, on the night there seemed to be lots of groups hence not many tables for two. The floor layout could have been better - it was lazily set up. The dinning room is beautiful, it would not take much to improve the experience - provide a menu that is fitting of a Four Seasons.

We were staying in the hotel, but couldn't be seated until 9.15, as it was a rugby weekend. We were down on time but the table wasn't ready so we were taken to the bar, where we sat for 5 mins and waited unsuccessfully for someone to take an order for a drink. The menu for dinner looked good, but the scallops starter was over cooked, as was the fish in the main course. The venison however was lovely, but portions were SO small and not a potato in sight, unless it was ordered as a side. Sweets were good too. However, the wine was too expensive for what it was, and overall the meal was overpriced for what we got. The waiter was very pleasant and helpful, but we went away feeling that we had had better meals in other hotels for a lot less.

I expect more from a Four Seasons Restaurant. The restaurant was off of the lounge/bar area and seemed like it was simply spill over from the bar area. The decor was lacking. Who paints a dining room mustard yellow? The art was poor as well. The food was fine, but it was something I could have done at home. Not imaginative and the lamb was overcooked. Our server was friendly, but curt and made us feel like she was in a hurry to get on to the next thing. We often go to a Four Seasons restaurant for dinner when in a new town because it is almost always a lovely setting with terrific food and service. Not so in Dublin. I enjoyed my self service Mexican food at lunch more and it was 1/10th the price.

This was a less than good experience despite it being. Five Star Hotel. My chicken was dry as was the potato served with it. My colleague's Navarin of Lamb looked like a badly presented overlooked stew.

This was a very disappointing experience. Having eaten in the main dining room before I was shocked to be shown the previous tea are/residents lounge.
There were no table cloths.
The food was inedible - was the steak pre-cooked? I think so.
The service was good as clearly the waiter was embarrassed to serve such dross.
I will never return. This hotel is masquerading until a 5* label which its dining room clearly is not.

Ate here a number of years ago and thought it was a fabulous fine dining experience - what a disappointment to go back and find that the superb room is now the breakfast room and the dining room is now squashed in to the old library with basically a bar menu to choose from!

Very Disappointing.

My first visit to this restaurant was with my mum for Mother's Day. Thankfully, my recent visit was not for anything special as it was so disappointing. The hotel have moved the dining room into a much smaller, darker area with just 10 tables making it like a bistro / bar food affair with a cheaper paper menu to match (wine list on the reverse!) . The food was only ok - again not really what you would expect of a Four Seasons. The old dining room was much nicer, airy, bright and felt like a Four Seasons restaurant. We would both be reluctant to return unless the dining room comes back! I must say all the staff (who were also unimpressed with the new set up) were friendly, pleasant and professional.

The four seasons restaurant was the perfect setting for where my fiance and I got engaged recently. The staff were so friendly and helpful in providing a fabulous evening for us and the service was fantastic. The meal was beautiful and good value. We were presented with 2 glasses of champagne and beautiful chocolates on a 'congratulations' decorated plate after our meal where we could relax and enjoy the moment. It was truly a great experience.

Luxury dining - excellent for a special lunch, although on this day the restaurant was far from full. Staff attentive, food good if not sparkling. Ambience and presentation of the restaurant are excellent and this would be a good place for those occasions when you want to impress or be impressed. The hotel has that haven-from-the storm feel, and the staff in the bar and round the hotel were friendly and professional.

The hotel as a whole has changed greatly but nowhere more than the restaurant. From the burnt/charcoal taste of a €50 steak to the fact that the staff started to clear all the empty tables around us while we ate, this was a really poor dining experience.

I have been fortunate to live closeby and have enjoyed many memorable langushing weekend breakfasts at four seasons.

loved the food and the presentation in the restaurant but still requiring more finess.
The staff were very courteous but appeared to be clumsy and overworked in the evening. One poured water all over the tablecloth while serving it from the bottle without noticing and disappeared.

Although the overall experience has been very good , with attention to small details, I feel the experience could only get better.

I booked the Four Seasons because I was given a voucher as a present. I expected high standards and wasn't dissappointed. the food, ambiance and service were excellent. What surprised me was the price- much better value for money than I thought it would be. they had a special Indian menu with a visiting Indian chef- two courses for 29 Euros and the European menu gave good value also. We thought -'they'll get us with the wine-but no, these were also good value.~I will definitely visit again. Only gripe- 13 Euros for a large bottle of sparkling water.

We both had soups, chowder (very salty) French Onion Soup (too sweet). Main courses steak and roasted, both really good. Dessert of tiramisu was chef's take on this classic and frankly, he didn't pull it off. We were not charged for French onion soup nor the tiramisu as we commented to the waiter on these. Overall very nice evening, really good service and ambience, would visit again. Not as good as the first time we went but still would recommend it.

We had a very enjoyable evening/night in the Four Seasons. From the moment our taxi pulled up at 8pm until we left in a taxi approx 2am. Could not fault one member of staff, in fact all were very attentive, but not overly so like many restaurants and bars can be. The food was very enjoyable, and cocktails were ever so nice! We never felt rushed for one minute. We enjoyed some cocktails in the lobby bar, where we were encouraged to enjoy the drinks and not to worry about being late for our dinner reservation. Even when the restaurant was obviously closing for the night around midnight, we were politely moved to the lobby bar, where it was suggested we should move to the Ice bar as it had later closing. Thanks for a really great night!

Very good wine menu, very good service at all times, always keeping an eye on us but without asking too often if everything was ok. Very good balance between customer service and feeling you are not in a restaurant with other customers, a bit of I'm in a bubble feeling. Quiet ambiance, just because your customers know what kind of restaurant they are in, all without uncomfortable silences. The restaurant supervisor came over to our table just to ask if everything was ok which is always a fantastic gesture. You can really appreciate the quality of the ingredients you use e.g. the sole was so well cooked, the dressing went very well and the flavours mixed fantastically. The breads, the coffee, the wine, the butter, thank you.

Having made my booking on-line, when I arrived at the Four Seasons to check in, there was no record of my booking. Thankfully, the staff at the Four Seasons did not make a big issue of this and resolved the situation efficiently and I even received a call from the restaurant mananger to appologise for the mix up. They hadn't receive the booking from open table, which they said they would look into.
However, this did not spoil our dining experience. We both decided to avail of the special Thanksgiving menu and we were not dissapointed. Every course was superb and we were waited on to a very high standard. At only €59 each it represented excellent value for money. The wine list was pricey but extensive.
Overall,it was a wonderful experienc
