My husband and I enjoyed brunch at Seasons Restaurant, it was the best brunch experience we have ever had. We are foodies and have been to many places for brunch, but so far, nothing beats Seasons.
is located at the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington, DC. Four Seasons is in the hip Georgetown area,
surrounded by cobblestone streets, beautiful architecture, close to many
designer shops, and Georgetown University.
The first tip I will give you, is that you bring your big appetite to Seasons, and your stretchy pants. The buffet experience at Seasons is going to be phenomenal, no doubt about it. The restaurant offers an award-winning menu, and truly, there are so many choices, I promise, you will not even know where to start.
The Seasons Brunch experience offers an array of excellent
prepared food stations, including: fresh seafood, salads, soups, breakfast,
cheese and cold meats, a carving station, hot sides, sushi-and the most
wonderful dessert station at any brunch I have ever eaten at.
Bottomless flowing sparkling wine and orange or grapefruit mimosas are included. Juices and coffee are also included. The servers keep your glass full, they are phenomenal!
For seafood lovers, Seasons got an amazing selection of fresh seafood, including cocktail of shrimp, lobster salad, ceviche, Ahi tuna, crab Louie, oysters, scallops, and beautiful cured and smoked salmon bar. Some Sundays, they will alternate and have crab claws instead of the oysters. The menu changes with the season, but I assure you, the quality and deliciousness of the food, will remain.
The cheese station contained a wonderful selection of cheeses, meats, and compliments. The salad station had a refreshing watermelon Gazpacho and several salads, grilled vegetables, and Israeli couscous.
My favorite dish overall was the grilled lamb chops- they were cooked perfectly and beautifully seasoned. They also had amazing tender beef short ribs, and a beautifully cooked Arctic char. Their crab cakes contained no fillers and were also wonderful. The tomato and truffle mac and cheese should not to be missed. There are countless side dishes, including many grilled and perfectly cooked vegetables and potatoes.
We skipped the breakfast omelet station, but walked around and saw breakfast potatoes, sausage, bacon, made to order eggs and omelets, fresh vegetables, crab, and lobster meats.
Seasons offered a large selection of Mediterranean dishes, I picked a few items from my husband’s plate and the stuffed grape leaves were wonderful. The hummus was pungent and spicy, very yummy.
Guest can order egg benedicts, waffles, and French toast from
an a la carte menu as well, included in the price.
Now let’s talk about dessert! Seasons has one full room for the desserts station!!! You will certainly have a hard time making up your mind and deciding. The Pastry Chef at Seasons recommended his Mango tres leches and it was decadent, simply perfect. I also had the Crème Brulee, super rich chocolate cake, lemon and raspberry bomb, and the passion fruit panna cotta. All amazing! The dessert station has several chocolate and fruit cakes and tortes, cookies, cupcakes, panna cottas, and a shortcake station with fruit, nuts, and all the accompaniments. There is also a large selection of sugar free desserts.
Price came up to about $100 per person with tip; we found it reasonable for the quality and freshness of the food. If you drink mimosas or sparkling wine, and have more than a few drinks, it is money well spent.
Cost for parking is $15, a discounted price, validated by Seasons.
Seasons is not your typical brunch, it is in fact very special. I recommend a visit for a special celebration, special occasion, or when you just want to splurge and make yourself happy. Go ahead and treat yourself- you will love it. Seasons is a foodie’s dream come true!
