For anyone who is independently wealthy or celebrating a rare and special occasion, indulge in this idyllic dining experience. Continuously ranked among the nation’s best, it was ranked #1 restaurant in Philadelphia by Zagat, among others.
The Fountain’s kitchen creates perfect, inventive dishes and the staff provides impeccable service, giving each guest the royal treatment in a comfortable, quiet, and classic setting.
A jacket and tie should be worn for dinner, and smart casual dress is suggested for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. The Sunday brunch is exquisite, as it should be at $65.
The Swann Lounge and Café, also in the Four Seasons, offers a more relaxed but still elegant dining and drinking option.
