    Expected a "Four Seasons" dining experience but was disappointed at the outset When brought to our table we had to ask to not be seated immediately next to another table despite MULTIPLE two tops being open! This was followed by later in the evening, the same hostess sat another group next to us despite, again, there being MULTIPLE available two tops not next to our occupied table! The other surprising "oops" was our server clearly had not reviewed the reservation since he walked up to our table and asked if anyone has any food allergies, despite our reservation specifically pointing out my wife dines GF. The meal was excellent, and the view is great, but at other Four Seasons, the details are covered.

    A great dining experience. The gumbo and homemade focaccia bread were delicious. Also, the Julia Reed's Old Fashioned (a scotch old fashioned) was very tasty. Ambience was very pleasant; and service was impeccable. I will definitely revisit.

    I don’t think I’ve ever written a review but I feel like I have to… the food was severely under seasoned. There were bones in the croquettes and the shrimp were not deveined. Our waiter was nice but the food was terrible and so expensive. Small portions, no flavor, and $$$$.

    The food was quite nice. On par with Cochon. The service was good, but other NO restaurants have better coordinated and friendlier service. The valet parking, however, stinks. We had a 2 hr lunch and a 30+ minute wait for or car. Ridiculous. 2nd time. Never again.

    I had a great time here for my birthday dinner during the Mardi Gras season. Waitress was knowledgeable, sweet and attentive and the restaurant provided me an excellent experience for my birthday. I enjoyed my time here and would recommend to anyone for a special night. Not to mention, the food was amazing. We ordered the pommes purée as one of our side dishes and I’m still dreaming about them - literally the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever had. The steak was phenomenally cooked too. 10/10

    Amazing food, and lovely ambiance! Service was also spectacular. Really enjoyed the goat cheese and beet salad, and the side of mushrooms was THE BEST I have had. For dessert we tried the mousse bomb and crème brûlée - overall everything we put in our mouths tasted great. Definitely recommend this restaurant!

    Beautiful restaurant atop the Four Seasons hotel. Ismael was our server and he was so attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. He was also very helpful with any substitutions that needed to be made as someone in our party was gluten free. The food was beautifully executed as well, very clean steaks and seafood. Absolute must in New Orleans.

    We started at the bar with beautiful cocktails made by our lovely bartender Renee. We were then taken to our romantic table with a lovely view of the river. Melema was our amazing server. Props for the the complimentary sparkling rose’, my favorite. We dined on gumbo (excellent and loaded with seafood) murder point oysters ( sooo good) followed by the goat cheese focaccia and blue cheese wedge. We ordered the fish of the day, crispy skin on redfish and shrimp and broccoli. Everything about this establishment is first class. A very special place to celebrate all the occasions.

    The experience was very nice. My financé and I enjoyed the ambience. My only suggestion would be to have complimentary olive oil and balsamic bread dip offered before our meal arrived, therfore, reducing the long wait before our entrees. Other than that, everything was good.
