    My wife and I with two other friends celebrated her birthday last night at Seasons 52, and we were blown away. My wife felt super special by the staff. Gavin was great as a server. Definitely felt like they went the extra mile to make my wife feel special.

    Gracious service, good food, pleasant outdoor table. The bar was accommodating of a request for an unusual drink (Aperol spritz); the strawberry basil infusion was well-balanced and, as requested, not too sweet. Splitting a flatbread was ample as an appetizer; the specialty flatbread - goat cheese, bacon, arugula, balsamic reduction - was good but somewhat out of balance, with insufficient bacon and a bit excessive on the too-sweet balsamic. Caramelized grilled sea scallops were tasty and an excellent value; sides were imaginative and well-executed (peas done just right, corn risotto delicious). The fresh corn side dish was so good that we ordered a second round! The waiter helped us narrow our wine choice by offering samples.

    Setting and location was excellent. We where greeted at the door with a warm welcome and shown to our seat. In the bar booths. Music was great, not over bearing and you could talk. Not a lot of customers yet. Could be that DC is in shut down mode with Congress on Holiday. The server was a little behind on things. Took time to get most of anything and always telling us I would be there in a min. Sometimes I got the impression the person did not realize that we had completed that one item. Food and drinks were Very Good. My Rack of Lamb very nicely done. Prices were reasonable. Over all my guest and I had a very good evening.

    Each time we go, my wife and I comment that it couldn't be as good as the last time, but each visit meets and exceeds our expectations. This time we tried a couple of new items (at least for us). The steak salad was superb and the roasted corn was a very pleasant surprise. I will order again, if on the menu at our next visit. My wife had the lobster flatbread and we shared the key lime and chocolate chip cannoli deserts which were a perfect size to complement the meal. Service was, once again, superior; especially since we informed the waitstaff that we had theater plans, but we never felt rushed. Drinks were topped off or replaced without a word from us. We will definitely be back.

    the food was great, when we finally got it. I'm saying it took over an hour after we arrived. there were 9n of us and it was a lunch for the office. People had to get back to work, so there was alot of tension around the wait.I would recommend the food but with reservations about the possible wait. there was also a wrong order so my coworker had to take her meal home in a doggy bag. She did eat what was brought and it was compted. The wait was horrendous and I though

    service is excellent but at times to attentive. Staff come over to the table too many time to ask if everything is good, do you need anything. Tit interrupts the conversation between guests at the table. The level of attentiveness is i assume management centered but can be annoying at times. This level of attentiveness has happened several times with different but but helpful wait staff.....

    Arrived early for reservation to an empty restaurant. Rather than seat us we waited 8 minutes while hostess did 10 other things. Then said " oh do u want to be seated". Hmm no we'd prefer waiting by the fireplace in August. Have you ever been here before? Yes many times. Oh ok. Well we're a seasonally inspired restaurant and the menu items change seasonally. Included on the chefs panel are the selections for this week. If I've been here many times it wasn't to see you or hear about the restaurant. Food is good but the chatty formula is over done. Show me the table be helpful and be gone. coffee was terrible. Boiled coffee is spoiled coffee. I'm not unfriendly it's just too much. You make up in formula what you take out in calories

    I can't even begin to say how terrible the serve was this evening here. First off the manager with the ponytail was busy giving one table lip service but failed to give it to other tables who's orders also took an extremely long time. Our server came to our table finally 30mins later after we were seated and then apologized but still took forever to come back and get our order or bring the simplest of items. Secondly, the food took hour and 15 mins to come out. I've come here twice and this is the last. I would never recommend this place to anyone because of how terrible the service was on August 2nd.

    Had been here twice before and enjoyed our experience, but this time things went very wrong. The appetizers were skimpy, at best. My sons' dinner can out cold and had to be sent back. My fillet was overdone and I had to send it back. The manager did come over to bring us the check and comped our appetizers and dessert, which was very much appreciated and the right thing to do. Regardless, they have lost me as a customer.

    Good food and attentive service - no complaints! We were first given a table in a very crowded part of the restaurant, and there was a draft. The staff was able to move us to a quieter part of the restaurant, which was much appreciated. The desserts were all comped due to a mishap with a glass of water, which was much appreciated. We will definitely come back!

All of the staff congratulated my husband by name, and made us all feel special. We were not rushed, and was given terrific service throughout our experience. My filet mignon was outstanding - I heard the rack of lamb was terrific, too.

WE had a champaign toast and they took our photo and handed it to us framed before we left. Even with my food sensitivities, I left fully satisfied. And the martinis.... amazing!!!
