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.

Thus restaurant is simply outstanding. Everything we had was perfect and worth every calorie, the filet, crab salad, scallops starter to name a few. The service almost feels like you have the ‘team’ all to yourself. Will definitely be back.

The lighting was way off, which had a big affect on the overall ambience. It was too dark and the Pool Room felt sad and not cozy and luxurious like it used to.

Had a 6:30 reservation and on time.
Four of us were seated at a very loud table and they kindly moved us.
However, we all felt very rushed with food delivery and hovering over to see if we were finished. We spent a great deal of money and i was very disappointed with the overall service.
I will probably will not go back again.
However, I did go to The Pool a year ago or so and it was so nice and relaxing.

If they run out of prime rib their signature dish on a Friday night at 8 pm they will offer you a six inch bone so you can see what you missed. You. won’t know they are selling it to you until you get the $21 charge on bill. Many more problems but that sort of explains the whole night. The wines were great though.

If you are looking for a fine dining experience that you must go to The Grill for dinner. Hands down one of the nicest restaurants I have been to. From the greeting when you check in to the your waiter to the bus staff to the manager, they make you feel welcome and impress you with everything they do. The ambiance is unbelievable, absolutely beautiful!!
The food is to impress as well. Having my prime rib carved in front of me was a nice touch. The occasion meals were excellent. They made a special for is that much more Please be aware that you do pay a nice price for this but it’s something you won’t forget

There was no relaxing, as our server kept pushing his agenda to keep our dinner moving at his own pace. Also, I anticipated pricey, but $30 for a mixed drink is a bit over the top...all while being 'hurried' through the experience. There are too many other high-end options in the city to give The Grill a second chance.

Wonderful dinner. I was very excited for the prime rib, as we had to order it a few days in advance, but I think the lamb chops were even better than the prime rib. The crab cake was top notch and we were pleasantly surprised by the endive salad (really good!). We thought the whipped mashed potatoes were underwhelming. The pasta ala press was very cool, but a little too salty for my palate. Drinks were awesome. Service was impeccable, and the place just exudes cool, but in a classic sophisticated way.
Overall, a great place to celebrate something special.

Probably the best restaurant in NYC and top 10 globally that my wife and I have ever been to. It’s very pricy, but well worth it in regards to taste, ambiance, and service. This is a must if high prices are doable!!

Celebrated birthday lunch at the Pool room. Requested to be seated by the “pool” and request was honored with a beautiful table.
Shared a chopped salad which was excellent. Then we both had the grilled branzino. It was delicious and a nice sized portion. Dessert was the carrot cake. Wonderful presentation and delectable.
With 2 glasses of wine and coffee, the bill came to $200 ( not including tip). Hefty but worth it for a special lunch.

From the moment we walked in till we departed the experience was sublime , yes this was a special occasion and so worth it ! The server and service was excellent , attentive to a fault ! Our appetizers were beyond delicious , we tried the oysters , foie gras ( the best we ever had ) and the pasta were a treat .

We stuck with cocktails through out , next time will go for the wine as their selection was awe inspiring ! Look forward to celebrating again here !
