The menu has been expanded and improved recently, with a broader and more polished selection of appetizers. Perhaps the new chef introduced in October is making a difference. They also have changed the steak from Flannery to Snake River Farms, which is a plus (leaner and more tender).

The tuna appetizer, the filet, and the candy bar (way fancier than it sounds) were all great. We always order double main courses with multiple sides, and they still made the presentation look elegant. The meat was perfectly cooked at medium rare, and the vegetables were a nice texture. We also have some dietary restrictions, which they accommodated easily, even finding a different type of bread that was delicious.

Try to come no later than 8 if you want a three-course meal. The kitchen closes at 9, and the last course must be served by 9:30. Not too much sticker shock for a Four Seasons restaurant in a major city. Parking can be validated for a discount.

We had a fantastic dinner with wonderful appetizers like grilled octopus and a main entrée such as Alaskan salmon. Everything was so good and the service was great!

Went to MKT for Thanksgiving. The food was delicious. Unfortunately the service was really sub par. This restaurant is not to the usual high standards of a Four Seasons.

Ordered a flat bread that tasted like it came from a frozen pizza package. Hostess wouldn’t let us sit in an empty section near window because she said they were going to combine tables for a large party. That never happened while we were there and other 2 tables were seated there. And very expensive for what we ordered. I will not go back. Very disappointed.

It wasn't clear to me that this restaurant is located inside the Four Seasons Hotel. The prices were a bit high for the quality of food, but the service was excellent as was the bottle of wine my friends and I shared. Avoid the flatbread, splurge on the Bolognese.

Loved the vibe here, food very good, but we only had a salad and pasta, didn't try anything else. Will return, liked the bar area with TV for Warriors games! The service was outstanding, very friendly and staff was quick to respond.

Ribeye steak a bit overpriced for the cut and preparation. Just wasn’t impressed. Honestly expected more from a well-reviewed, FS restaurant. Otherwise, the food was very good, but nothing spectacular.

I was disappointed that the main dining room was closed off. It was not the same experience in the bar. The service was exceptional, and the Crab Louie very good. But $10 for iced tea?? Are you serious? I don’t care if the ice cubes are made with iced tea — that is ridiculous.

This restaurant is inside the lovely Four Seasons Hotel just half a block from the Powell Street MUNI/BART Subway Station in downtown San Francisco. It is easy to get to and you won't be disappointed when you get there. The food was excellent and the service was superb last time I visited this establishment. Price is not cheap but the food and service are worth every dime that you pay. I would recommend it highly.

The food was good but not great: the salmon was overcooked, the meat was tasty but not the best cut. Service was very good except the glitch at the credit card machine: we tried two cards America Express and Visa, both were rejected. Had to scramble to find enough cash to pay. Upon checking with the credit companies we found out that there no requests for payment received. Can this happen in an upscale restaurant? In a Four Seasons hotel?
Generally, we felt that the cost is higher than the quality of food would warrant. By the way, the restaurant area is closed, the service is in the bar which is much noisier than the restaurant. This was not clear when we made the reservation.

Food was just okay. Waiter forgot to bring my wine with food. But, what really is wrong. Is that the waiter charged my credit card twice, 151.00 and then 181.00 which included the tip. So both the 151.00 and 181.00 totaling over 300.00 was charged to my credit card. This lunch really left a bad taste in my mouth. According to the restaurant manager the 151.00 was charged as an authorization and would be re-deposited into my account in four to five days. I have never heard of a restaurant doing this. I eat out all over San Francisco and have never had this happen before. Don’t eat at this restaurant. Walk down the street to the Palace Hotel and enjoy a lovely lunch in the Palace Court or go to the Proper Hotel Restaurant and enjoy a trendy lunch that’s excellent from start to finish.

Good selection of food on the menu and the salmon I had was exquisitely prepared. The selection of wines by the glass was great. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Love the views of the surrounding buildings and Market Street. Solid bet for a great lunch.
