    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    Excellent healthy food and the service was the best we have had in a long time, everyone from the hostess to the wait staff were friendly and observant. For a brand new restaurant it was impressive how every aspect was perfect. Can't wait to go back!

    Music was too loud. Service wasn't very fast. And the food was just ok. I had the scallops, which were tasty, but the pearl pasta that accompanied it was awful. The burger that my boyfriend got was nothing special. The restaurant itself is very nice looking. However, the potential was there and I would be willing to try it again and give them a second chance to wow me.

    This was a very nice experience overall. We liked the booth and the overall decor. We loved the 475 calorie a plate commitment and the great wine list. Our party of 3 were very pleased and 2 of us were celebrating our birthdays, which turned out to be a nice choice for this.

    Very nice decor and a good bar scene. Extensive wine list with a nice touch in that they bring the bottle out and let you taste the wine before you get the whole glass. So if you are undecided between two or three, you can taste them all and then choose your favorite. The food was just ok but they were overly friendly and bought us a glass of wine and a couple of their small desserts when we mentioned the bland/overcooked food (bison burger which I know has low fat and can get dry, but still...) The pork dish we also got was pretty good. We would give them another shot.

    When we arrived, we wanted to hang in the bar and grab a drink. There were no seats, but the manager still offered us a glass of wine while we stood there waiting for a spot to open up. We found a seat st the bar and the drinks were OUTSTANDING. Once we got to our table, our server Malia was stellar; she greeted us by name!! She did not make us feel rushed, she had extensive wine knowledge, as did the manager. We were very impressed with the level of service, quality of food, and just the overall experience. We will be recommending and returning.

  • Seasons 52 - A great new addition
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 11/30/2012
    We had a wonderful time. We sat in a bar booth; got a little noisy but not too bad as the place filled up. The live music/piano is inside the bar - very cool and not overwhelming. All the items on the menu were under 475 calories - you can't beat that! The menu had a wide range of choices. We both had fish which was very fresh and perfectly cooked. The portions were just right. I hate to get presented with a huge plate of food. Great selections of wines and desserts. We felt it was very well priced. I have to comment on the phenomenal service provided by Samantha - she was very attentive but not intrusive. She knew about all the items on the menu and also was very knowledgeable about the wines. Seasons 52 is a winner and we will be back!

The waiter was friendly and knowledgable. Can't wait to go back for dinner. Also appreciated the caller but I did think $8 was high.

    I love that I can have a delicious dinner, guilt free! I was able to split a steak and blue cheese flat bread with my dinner date, and then have a delicious arugula salad with truffle dressing, and finally pork tenderloins with polenta and veggies...all for 831 calories!! Everything was good quality and fresh. The restaurant is nicely done, and appears to have an extensive wine selection. I love the live piano singer in the bar, it adds to the atmosphere. Free valet parking too! If you have to watch your calorie intake, but love to dine out, this is the place for you.

    Great food presentation, really appreciated the small and delicious desserts. I usually don't get desserts at lunch because they are too big and usually over priced. The little cup was the perfect amount, and very affordable - less than a cup of coffee at a well known chain.

    Taking the healthy trend in an enjoyable direction. Any of the flatbreads are a great addition to any entree. Scallops and Cider- glazed skewers for the fall menu were great...my family and I look forward to weekly menus and especially what's planned for next season. Staff are all very friendly and personable.

    Lots of fun at nighttime! Our group loved all the healthy menu choices, and we decided we could eat the steak & mushroom flatbread every day. It was fun trying several of the fabulous desserts and sharing one last one! Very reasonable prices for fantastic food.

    The restaurant is nice and trendy on the inside but much louder than expected. Service was okay. Our waiter was nice but seemed like he was new to the business. When I asked him about the two wine specials on the menu, he simply pointed to them on the menu and read the names to me. I had to ask him what they were since the names were like..."Wrongo Dongo"...and he seemed to be really nervous about it. Also had to ask for dessert...which was the best part of the meal btw. Food was okay, but for the price...I really expected better. However, Seasons 52 sells dishes that are meant to be healthier with each one packing no more than 475 calories. I'd consider returning.

    The food portion is small.. I get it, it is suppose to be healthy and I am not a big eater( I only weigh 105 lbs) but for me and my tiny girl friends, the food was barely enough! It tasted good but nothing like the best food I've ever had! I live in the neighborhood so there might be a chance that I go back there but If I have other options, I would for sure cross this one out!

    I had a reservation for 7:15pm but around 8:00pm when I asked why it was taken so long, I heard "I apologize, I forgot about you"... That was really irritating... Good was good but not exceptional. Mashed potatoes was too garlic and the bread was too toasted... Waiter was really nice and tried hard to make up for the other inconvenience... I will try again another day, giving a "descont" that that day was the opening..
