    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.

    I had heard Seasons 52 was a great place for date night, my friends were right. Our meal was great, we both had the Branzino. The desserts were very good. I have celiac and have to eat Gluten Free and Seasons 52 had plenty of good options for me including two desserts, that can be hard to find. We'll go again!

    this was my first experience at Seasons 52, and what a pleasant surprise. first the flavors and choices made it hard to choose. i finally settled on the lobster and mozarella flatbread for lunch. it was really delicious and actually a plentiful plate. and the small bie size desserts were a perfect ending to the meal. our service was the best. will try to eat here again soon.

    The autumn menu was a nice addition to our dining experience. My husband chose mushrooms in both his appetizer and entrée. His mushroom risotto was outstanding, and he thoroughly the quail. I had the branzino fish with Meyer lemon and thyme ~ making it the third time I have had this for dinner with you. The fish is one of my favorite meals....My husband was impressed enough with his first visit that we will make the hour plus drive again for a pleasant meal out, not just when I am traveling.

    Once again dining at Season 52 was outstanding. I invited friends who had never eaten there- to join me for dinner while our husbands were on a golf outing ~ my friends were totally impressed and plan to return soon with their husbands! The level of service matches the outstanding food - I've NEVER been disappointed with Seasons 52! It has become one of my favorite places to dine !

    The description on the menu does not sound half bad. Made to sound interesting in fresh. However, it always comes down to the execution, and there it lacks. The service was slow at best. This is the second time we were there and basically ordered salads that took over 30 minutes to arrive. No salad should take that long. The salad are ok, but the descriptions are better than the execution. We order the brussel sprout side which sounded good again on the menu, but the taste wasn't there. Biggest problem is the sprouts were undercooked so they were tough at best. I make brussel sprout hash which this sounds like it is trying to duplicate, but it was not done enough and the taste just wasn't there.

    After living in Birmingham for 8 years, this is the best restaurant we've eaten in. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were generous. There was an amazing combination of both simplicity and freshness in the food flavors. We had the shrink scampi, Roma tomato flat bread, wood roasted pork tenderloin, desert, and coffee. The service was very quiet and unobtrusive while also very attentive. We will certainly return again.

    The food was excellent, as well as the cocktails. Staff was disappointing. Both of the hostess were very unfriendly and the one who seated was rude. I frequent this restaurant at least 2 to 4 times a month for business and pleasure. My server was very slow to come to the table. We ordered appetizers and cocktails and the appetizers arrived before the cocktails. On our second round, the drinks arrived after our food. Our food was brought by others and she only appeared to take our drink and food order. And lastly, she showed up with the desert offering and I handed her my credit card. The flow was slow, untimely and disrupting. However, we did get a "Thank You" from a front end manager as we departed.

    We truly enjoyed our dining experience at Seasons 52. We were promptly seated and our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food choices. We started our meal with the stuffed mushrooms. They had just the right amount of spinach and shrimp in them that were delicious but did not take away from the mushrooms themselves. The butternut squash soup was outstanding as was the mixed field greens salad! The filet mignon was cooked to perfection. The portions were nice sized without being overwhelming in order to save room for dessert. We liked that the desserts were small to polish off your meal with just a small sampling to not feel stuffed. The food, atmosphere and service were all top notch!
