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.

We specifically chose The Grill to celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary with the “celebrated” prime rib entree. From start to finish, everything was perfect - service, food exceptional! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and look forward to returning repeatedly.

The Grill is a recommended place for a classic dinner in a fabulous mid-century space. The crowd of all ages was smartly dressed, ranging from stylishly casual to full-on business. The food is expertly prepared and delicious. The service is attentive and professional. Expensive, yes, but you get an amazing experience in return. The room is lively, especially at 8:30pm, when the bar and restaurant were both at capacity. If it were up to me, I'd turn down the music volume. That being said it wasn't bothersome and we enjoyed a lovely, romantic dinner.

Lovely place with fabulous ambiance and even better music. Staff was amazing. Very pricy but it was a worthwhile since food was exceptional.
I asked for one item from the menu and I have been told that the quality of dish I wanted to order was not satisfactory for the chef so I order something else from the menu. They have not charged us for my starter which I think was extremely nice touch. Well done.

The best prime rib in town. I've been to plenty of NY steak houses but have never had a prime rib this good. Must go. Also, best service in town. They make you feel like you stepped back in time when people cared about your experience. The only downside is price, but it's worth it for special occasions.

We dined here for our anniversary on Monday evening. Setting was beautiful with outstanding food. Our server was very polite and excited to have us, he even offered us a complimentary dessert to celebrate our anniversary. We felt very welcomed by him. We did not however feel welcomed by the ladies at the hostess desk. We were likely a little flushed after rushing from another event to make our reservation in time. Additionally... while my husband had changed, I was still in the formal attire I had worn for said event. This was too clearly very amusing to the hostess staff who should be professional enough to remain composed and hold their expressions and opinions until out of view of their guests. These ladies did not represent the establishment well upon our arrival or our departure. Otherwise, a lovely experience.

excellent experience from the first moment when the reception staff greets you warmly- no arrogance or attitude-- and ushers you upstairs to the beautiful subdued elegance of the main dining area in which you can actually hear your table mates speak. Every single staff member is efficient, accomodating, cheerful and kind. Superb waiter. Food presentation lovely, everything delicious. Expensive but worth it.

Honestly, one of the BEST dining experiences. Incredibly thoughtful staff, awesome service, beautiful space and classic ambiance. We were in such a rush, having screwed up our own evening, including a scrambled arrival after having trouble finding a cab in city construction, but in an hour we were treated like old friends, and it made OUR WEEK in NY. Thank you to ALL the staff at The Grill! Hope to be back ASAP!

Good to see the former Four Seasons restaurant up and running again. It's lost a little of the vintage charm but the Lippold sculpture looks amazing all polished. I LOVE salt but everything was like a salt lick. I kept asking my dining companion if the salt delivery exploded in the kitchen. It was truly bizarre. The Pain Perdu dessert was not salty and was extremely delicious.

Food and service was great! If you’re ordering a dirty martini make sure you tell them to make it from scratch (they have been using a pre-made mix) which was awful. Bread is amazing too! Enjoy!
