    We really enjoyed Seasons 52. We had a group of 6, seated at a round corner table that was just right for conversation. The food was excellent and reasonably priced, and the service was good as well.

    Hummus and tuna tartare for starter. Both enjoyed pork tenderloin for main and they catch you out with the dessert! When they put them all in front of you ready to eat you cant say no! Carrot cake and chocolatd mousse were perfect and inthe perfect portion as well! What a thoughfully designed dining experience. Our waitress was so friendly and attentive also. We'll be back!

    We go to Seasons 52 every couple of months and they have always exceeded our expectations for quality and service and our latest visit was even better than we expected, and we've learned to expect a lot from Seasons 52. Leon, our server, greeted us by name, offered perfect recommendations for new appetizer items on the menu (we had Short Rib Flatbread and Warm Beet salad) as well as recommending the Venison Chop for me and the Filet Mignon for my wife. Food was delicious, service was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and efficient but not intrusive. I continue to recommend Seasons 52 as an outstanding local favorite and will be going back soon.

    A person who was cleaning another table while we were there broke a glass. As she cleaned off the broken glass she used a fresh napkin roll. She then put that napkin back on the table for the next customer to use. It was very disturbing for my guest who had a clear view. After we finished my guest moved the napkin and unrolled it so no one else would use it Othwise our experience was excellent.

    Our party of eight enjoyed a terrific meal. The service was perfect. The wait staff was attentive but not over bearing. The portions were generous and everyone shared how much they enjoyed their meal. Everything was perfect for a special evening with friends and family. And the price was reasonable. I great location for a gathering of eight or an intimate meal for two.

  • Better than the first time
    BenAround
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    This was our second dinner visit and this was better than our first time. We were seated in the front room where we could actually read the menu - even though the waiter used a flashlight at the next table so that they could see the desserts. (They were in their twenties) My advice: Skip the flatbreads/flights. Order salad or soup and "basic" entre. This is not a steakhouse. Avoid the ridiculously small desserts (You may need a magnifying glass in addition to a flashlight to find them) and keep in mind that your at a chain restaurant.

    While our party of 6 mostly enjoyed the food, given the price point and all the good restaurants in Birmingham, we are not likely to return. For those wanting a lower calorie meal that is well prepared, this is a good choice. Unfortunately, the service was slow and our server had a hard time remembering requests.

    My husband and I went to Seasons 52 for our wedding anniversary. We made a reservation but decided (as we have in the past) to sit at the bar because there is a piano man and he is wonderful, and frankly it's just more fun! Our bartender/server helped us pick out a fantastic bottle of wine to go with our dinner and was very attentive to us the entire visit. The food was excellent as always and we had a lovely experience overall.

    The only problem our group of ten had during this dining experience was that we had reservations for 9pm. We arrived at 8:15, and we concede that 45 minutes. The table was not available, but we made use of our time at the bar. We were not seated for our reservation until almost 10pm. The food was wonderful, but if that's how they treat those with reservations, maybe they should reconsider the option of reservations. Either honor the reservations or just take walks ins.

    On reading reviews we figured would try this out since we pretty much had our fill of BBQ joints in Birmingham. What a treat - starter of warmed olives was stunning with properly baked garlic, olive oil, rosemary & chillies. The mushroom arugla salad with the wild mushrooms, truffle sauce and shaved parmesan was to die for. Mains of filet and rack of lamb, done to perfection, sides tasty and fresh. Food tastes so clean, not over seasoned. The desert selection presented on a tray of eight samples in shot glasses was so well done - we had four between the 2 of us - key lime pie - yum

    We visited the restaurant to celebrate a co-workers upcoming wedding. The nine of us all agree that the food was awesome, the atmosphere was spectacular, the service was excellent, and the portion sizes of food in comparison to the cost were outstanding. The flatbread apetizers were just enough- not overwhelming and quite tasty! This was, without question, a fine dining experience and I am certain that we will return, as well as, recommend it to others.

    Eaten here several times and had outstanding food. Sat in a location for our anniversary which was noted by staff but very loud from bar area and piano player (way too loud). Too close to bar with people hitting up on each other. Would have preferred the resturant area rather than the bar area. Service was slow. Not up to our standards. Some of the food, which the resturant prides itself on local vendors, was much less than the quality we have had before at resturant. Disappointing but will give it another chance.

    The signature flatbreads continue to tantalize. We had the lobster-mushroom selection. The butternut squash soup was prepared well but somewhat bland. Our filet mignons were cooked to perfection. The accompanying broccoli seemed as though it had been cooked the correct amount an hour earlier. The signature desserts were wonderful, particularly the cannoli sample, which was heavenly. The decafe coffee was horrible in that it tasted like low grade coffee that had been made in a metal percolator on a gas stove and then served cold - it was undrinkable. There was a very long wait for a cocktail even though the restaurant was not crowded. Perhaps because it was a Monday night it seemed understaffed. The server was inexperienced.
