  • "The food here was amazing. My boyfriend had the lamb and I had the wine-flatbread pairing. Both were delicious and a great deal. We had the whole meal for less than $100! That's pretty much unheard of for this quality of food in Boston. Overall a great find!"

  • "Nice change to seasonal menu, consistent food quality. Very good salads and veggies. Relatively pricey compared to local chain restaurants. Good for groups. A bit noisy with piano bar. Service could be better, too many trying to help and not efficient"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Great value for the area and menu selection. I was particularly pleased with the healthy food options. The chefs are light on sugary sauces and heavy on balanced flavor with reasonable portions. The turkey kabobs were excellent and the small desert indulgence at the end of dinner was perfect for the health conscious individual. My new favorite restaurant."

  • "Seasons 52 has an uncommon concept -- change the menu four times a year to take advantage of each season's freshest food. I've eaten at their restaurant in Atlanta and enjoyed it. This one is equally good: interesting dishes, well prepared and attractively presented, good and friendly service, quiet enough for easy conversation. A thoroughly enjoyable meal."

  • "Another flawless dinner with Rachel serving us. The lounge musician was quite good tonight, I think she's a new addition to the usual singers."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Food was good, service was painfully slow. Drink order didn't arrive until after our food arrived. Perhaps a few more bar tenders and servers would solve the issue. Would not recommend based upon the lack of focus on timely service."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Portions were much larger that I expected for so few calories. Love that I can get dessert - the size was just right for those of us who like to end a meal with a little bite of something sweet."

  • "This was my second time dining at Seasons 52. Both times were quite enjoyable. I follow a vegan lifestyle and love love love that they had a menu just for my dietary choice. I took friends out for lunch this time and one person eats gluten-free...and yes, there was a menu for that, too! Smart. The menu items have clearly had thought put into them and I love that it changes seasonally....offering seasonal only items. Would highly recommend."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Food was very good. Portions are adequate; not huge, but at least you don't want to go to sleep afterwards. A good place for lunch with ample time to sit around and talk. It seems to me that the ambiance opposes the food; it feels like a calorie-laden steak house, but the food is low in calories and healthy!"

  • "Seasons 52 has combined a charming atmosphere, outstanding service and a delicious menu to make the dining experience really special. The staff is welcoming, accommodating and competent on every level and the food is beautifully presented and of the highest quality. Really a lovely spot for lunch or dinner. And don't leave the table without having one of their fabulous mini-desserts!"

  • "We love Seasons 52 and drove from Connecticut to have dinner there. It was very good, however, a few minor items would have changed my rating to outstanding. I had the Alaskan salmon and it was delicious. It was to be served with sugar snap peas and it came with grilled asparagus. Not a big deal but it would have been nice to be informed before I was served. I questioned our server, she went back to find out and apologized as the kitchen had not told her. My husband had the shrimp pasta. He liked it but I thought it was too spicy. 25 min. wait between placing order and being served. Again, not our servers fault. Another minor detail, the silverware was spotted from the dishwasher. Usually servers wipe down the silver."

  • "I have been here 4 times with different people....every time the service has been really poor except the last visit it was fair. I don't know if it your style that the waiter or waitress takes the order then forgets about you??? I had called and specifically said that I want good service..."Pappi" tried but we even had to send for him twice! Also the Flatbreads came out soggy every time? Water Refills? Etc...etc...I can go on and on..... The concept is very nice to keep the calories down but the service needs to also be very nice and you cannot serve cold food?? This was the last time for me."

  • "Love the fact that there is no butter, grill or oven dishes for all of us who try to be health conscious."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Food continues to be very good, consistently so. I love the flatbread pizzas and adored the grilled garlic pesto chicken for lunch. My husband enjoyed the crispy duck "Banh Mi"sandwich, made with a delicous crispy bread. Our friends had the perfectly cooked signature burgers. One complaint is that the roasted tomatoes on top of the burger, though yummy, were sliced so thick that when one of our friends took a bite, the tomato squirted all over his shirt, as well my top and white pants! Suggest that the chefs slice the tomato thinner so that the chances of that happening are much smaller, or serve them on the side. The pickles in the jar were tasty and reminded us of mother's refrigerator pickles. Loved the mocha macchiato for dessert!"

  • "The food and service were excellent. It was hard to believe that everything on the menu was based on a certain caloric intake. The menu was varied with lots to choose from. I went back again a few days later."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Food and service were great. Music (keyboard player in bar) was very good. Tables were not cramped together like many places. Only drawback was it was surprisingly noisy. Many things to touch and break. Probably not a good place for energetic kids."

  • " main room much better - back dining area more suited for older people. Not enjoyable at all. Felt like we were rushed through the evening. Last time I ate in the main room it was more festive and fun and leisurely. this time we had a new waiter, who spilled beverages ,unsure of wines and not Knowledgeable about food. He interrupted us constantly and we felt rushed through dinner.He was showing us desserts before all were finished. One person ordered "Fish special"- as we were told it was great and it was awful 2 fork fulls of fish and it was the most expensive item. Would never order this again. Although the couple we invited was disappointed I will return again as my first time there was great."

  • "Hopefully you will have a different waitress when you go. I have been many times and had great food and service but this time the service was awful."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Food selection is quite good and each time we've been there the menu has varied. Servers are prompt and friendly. There is a piano bar that can get a bit noisy and combined with no sound deadening in the dining rooms, makes conversation a challenge."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Seasons 52 in Chestnut Hill is a wonderful neighborhood gem. We had delicious meals that were healthy as well as low calorie. The waitstaff was delightful and personable. The roasted corn with bacon and onions reminded my mother of a dish her mother used to make on the farm. I had the ahi tuna with avocado mouse that melted in my mouth. My mother had the lump crab dish which she thoroughly enjoyed. I can't wait to dine there again and try other meals."

  • "My girlfriend and I love the Seasons 52 brand and visiting the chestnut hill location maintained our affection. Tiana was attentive and friendly, and knew to do things like comp our dessert when they were out of what we wanted. We always love the scallops and I got the cedar salmon which hit the spot. I recommend going and asking to have dessert at the bar so you can enjoy the piano singing."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Delicious food from ever-changing menu. Lovely dessert presentation. Healthy number of calories. Wait staff was friendly, professional and attentive. Had a lovely dinner with a friend and will surely return. Happy to find a local version of this restaurant after being introduced to it in Phoenix!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Seasons 52 is known for low carb, low fat food in which I love. All the times I've been going (friends booked reservations) the food comes out cold, undercooked, and the plates are a mess... Before the plate leaves the kitchen the sides are to be wiped down from any food smears or drippings. You can always see the gross napkin smear all over the plates.. Pay more attention. In addition, all the Seasons 52 resturants are way too dark!!!! Wait staff is outstanding!"

  • "Too noisy. Great food. Live music a distraction and not appreciated."

  • "We saved our initial visit to this new place for my Wife's Birthday. I mentioned this at check-in twice... we were ignored... nothing ever materialized. Food took forever.... mozzarella with balsamic was missing the balsamic-- on my wife's and my own. We mostly felt ignored during the entire meal. When we asked for extra balsamic (!!!), and extra feta cheese for my Greek Salad, we got teensy, itsy, bitsy portions--insanely ridiculous. Thought the menu was difficult to understand (small this and that, extra entrée accompaniments, etc.). All in all, "eh". On the positive side, valet was free."

  • "We celebrated my husbands birthday Wednesday night. We arrived on time, however, our son and his girlfriend were a few minutes. My husband and I were seated immediately, rather then having to wait for the rest of our party to arrive.......this was a big plus to start our evening. Everything that was ordered, from appetizers to dessert were excellent. Service was perfect thanks to Angela."

  • "this was our second visit and I must say it was much better than our first we were shown right to our table even though we were early and our server Jennifer A came right over she was wonderful"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The menu is interesting and varied, but not crazy trying to be on the edge. There is something for every taste and level of sophistication. The dishes I've had, as well as what I've seen my friends order, have always been delicious. The servers I've had each time I've been at Seasons 52 have been professional, friendly, helpful and lovely. We celebrated the 53rd anniversary of my friends on 7/5 and Jessica could not have been more 'in the spirit.' I look forward to my next visit!"

  • "We went with a couple of friends. Service was very good. Food was ok, nothing bad. But it wasn't great or even anything special."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "When we arrived there, the front desk lady never smile to us and just told us no table was available. Actually, there were many empty tables. Until we used online reservation in the front of her, she was still unhappy to find table for us. Food is great. The bad attitude from the front desk lady ruined everything. The reason of us to come to your restaurant is enjoying the food and having fun. Not look at your bad face! Again, It is the worst front desk lady i meet in US!!!"

  • "Delivered as expected on all counts. Very clean and orderly operation. Plate had a spot and the severer removed it with out being asked. Need to add an appetizer and or salad to satisfy most appetites. Will return."

  • "Another great dinner with Rachel serving us once again. The new Summer Menu was long awaited by us. Love having S52 in our area!"

  • "The food was good, but the prices they charge for it are better suited for a true Celebrity Chef owned 4 star restaurant, and not for a chain restaurant that is trying to be something it is not."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Food was good as usual, but we had the same problem we had last time. Very attentive waiter until we got our food, then we never see the wait staff again. My friend wanted to order another glass a wine and we can't find the waitress then it took a long time. Also, that piano player should go. I love to sit at the bar, but not with that music and it is too loud in general."

  • "have eaten here before, but this service was painfully slow, needed to remind server about several items. Had to ask for finished items to be taken away. Really long, long wait for entrees and then made the mistake of ordering coffee, which required another long wait. We paid for the check before we got the coffee, which was being brewed fresh, we were informed 10 min.after ordering. I finally refused a dessert-- I find their dessert presentation fairly manipulative: they present the full assortment, they put a spotlight on each dessert, tell you their favorite. It surprises me in a restaurant that touts it's calorie counts on the entrees, doesn't put bread on the table. I feel it is all about making money, and a bit manipulative."
