ok silly me, what did i expect when i made reservations for sunday brunch - a good deal? no, that is not what you get when you come to the four seasons hotel. you get to rub elbows with celebrities though. We were seated one table away from Macy Gray while we were helping ourselves from the OVERWHELMING array of buffet items: don't get me wrong: the food is delicious, but if you have a small stomach, the spread isnt worth the $70 flat fee per head. and where they got me was the liqour. i was naive enough to expect that the high asking price included at least my petite flute of mimosa, but NO siree. That baby cost me $12 and so did the shot of vodka they so sneakily enticed me to order what with their extravagant display of bloody mary mixes. Ouch to my wallet, but hey, the atmosphere was nice. It was cool to linger for a Sunday afternoon, the wait staff didnt rush us out (and actually could have been more attentive instead). A once in a lifetime experience! , but i think their afternoon tea is a better deal.

I try to go at least every few months as the brunch is quite pricey. The service is excellent. You can watch the stars and be treated like one as well. The food is always fresh and the presentation is breath taking. I reccommend going the weekend before any awards ceremony taking place in the area that is your best bet for seeing Hollywood's finest. I often take out of town guests there and they are always more than impressed.

I am a high tea devotee and I've had them all over the city -- the Peninsula, the Beverly Hills Hotel, Bistro Garden... This is the best! Luxurious environment, super-accomodating staff, yummy finger sandwiches and pastries.. Plus, Larry Flynt eats here all the time in his gold-plated wheelchair.. RAD.

The food is amazing. The scene is great.
But the Agua Luca drinks are incredible. Ask for an Agua Luca Caipirinha, margarita or mojito. The server recommended that we try this new ultra-premium rum from Brazil and the drinks he made were unreal. I wouldn't leave without trying an Agua Luca margarita or something.
Great appetizers and the staff are very knowledgable. I would definitely go back for a happy hour dinner any time.

I usually get to enjoy a meal at Gardens several times per year. I have yet to have a bad meal........my worst meal would be considered 'very good.' My favorite is the five course tasting menu. Each meal is always made to perfection......with taste and aesthtics. The desserts are to die for. If you have a monsterous appetite, you might want to consider the Sunday brunch, which runs for $50 without champagne and $65 with. You'll find everything from your ordinary breakfast items to sashimi, a seafood section (crab legs, claws and shrimp), a wide array of salads, and the ultimate dessert table! Plus, who knows who you'll run into? Maybe Shaq? Kid Rock?

The award winning dessert is a must - Chcolate souffle with raspberry foam, Chocolate Caramel cake. The tasting menu is always a good way to go but you can always order them a la carte. If you go with the regular entree dishes, the chef is quite generous with sending out complimentary dishes between courses. The brunch buffet is also very good. Last but not least, the waitstaff is absolutely the best.

Ive only been here for the Sunday afternoon brunch and its well worth the trip. I sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the meal thoroughly. The buffet is a mix of everything from sushi to fine cheeses and desserts. Be forewarned that dining is a pricey exercise, but you probably already know that. After all, this is the Four Seasons.
