The Zagat Review
As “iconic” as it gets, Alex von Bidder and Julian Niccolini’s “storied” Midtown New American provides a “first-class dining experience from every angle” , with “flawless” staffers ferrying “impressive” fare in “gorgeous” Philip Johnson–designed surrounds voted No. 1 for Decor in NYC; the Pool Room is “incomparable” for a “romantic” dinner, while the Grill Room hosts the “ultimate power lunch” , and though both require “serious cash” (and jackets), it’s “one of the all-time greats” ; P.S. a relocation is in the works for 2016.

This was an awesome place to go out for a special dinner while in nyc. The food is always awesome and the staff very warm and attentive. Excellent decor, especially the pool room and upscale enough for business dinners too. I really enjoyed everything there, including scrumptious deserts. This place was very much New York City and I was amazed that they recognized me even though I didn't go there all that often. Highly recommended!

It's the feel you get when you walk up the stairs and stand just a little taller as you approach the check in desk. It's the sound of clicking high heals as you walk past the wall where the Picasso tapestry used to hang, now in the collection of the New York Historical Society, and see it even though it's no longer there after more than 50 years. It's the "Hi Mr. A, we haven't seen you in a while.....where have you been?" We've passed the Four Seasons forward to our to 3 of our grandsons. What a wonderful place either for lunch in the Grill Room or dinner in the Pool Room. We were at THE LAST SUPPER IN THE POOL ROOM last night. Thanks Alex, thanks Julian for keeping this institution as fresh as it was when I first came in 1959. Thanks to all our staff friends who we hope will wind up bringing their skills to other restaurants and who we look forward to seeing again. It was a bittersweet night. Searching for a simile, like the last night at summer camp.

The food isn't 5 star but it is reliably 4.5. And the atmosphere and service are amazing. There's a reason this place has been an institution for decades. Closing for good on July 16. Experience it while you have the chance.
