  • "...and 52 Seasons did not faultier. The moment I sat down and was greeted by Ivana, heard the background of the restaurant, reviewed the menu and finally enjoyed the food...I was blown away. I hadn't had a delicious meal like that in a very long time that was also reasonably priced! I left there thinking...I can't wait to go back and try every item on the menu. 52 Seasons is NOT to be missed...make your reservation today!"

  • "Several friends had eaten at seasons 52. We were told that it was excellent, but service was variable. Reviews also said the same thing, good food, poor service. We celebrated our 47th anniversary on April 16th and both the food and service was outstanding. the meal was plentiful and the service was equal to the best we have had anywhere."

  • "Took my wife here for her birthday. We both enjoyed our meals and the service was very good. We will be back. "

  • "This restaurant is usually packed with the locals, 40+ crowd, (the wait for a table if you don't use Open Table can be daunting), fortunately we decided to go during Passover and the place was all ours! The food is great if you can deal with smaller portions. The menu is designed for folks looking for quality vs. quantity. The flatbreads are always great apps and the rack of lamb was amazing. I have yet to be disappointed here."

  • "Despite making a reservation, we were sated about 20 minutes late. Our wait person took 40 minutes to get us water as well as our bar drinks. We were told that a basket of bread would be brought to our table--it never arrived. After getting our drinks, it took another 15 minutes for our waitress to take our orders for dinner. We mentioned the delays to the manager. About 15 minutes after talking to her, she came to our table to apoligize and told us the entire bill would be picked up by the restaurant. This was my 4th time dinign at Season. Twice, the food and service were good and twice, the service was poor, but the food quite tasty. Her offer was generous and yes, we will try it again."

  • "We were delighted to try Seasons 52, as we are very health conscious and like their philosophy. WE were not disappointed. And it started with our fantastic waitress, Asia. She let us taste wine before ordering our glasses, then had enthusiastic recommendations, which we promptly ignored! Loved the arugula salad and the arugula flatbread, the kale caesar was nothing special, but they gave us two salad dressings with each!. Our main dishes were better than expected: the shrimp pasta dish was loaded with shrimp and had a bit of a kick; the scallop dish was presented beautifully and was also well flavored. Then the mini dessert was a perfect ending. not too much, but oh so good. We will be back....soon."

  • "The Ahi Tuna Tartare with wasabi-avocado mousse, tropical salsa, hawaiian sea salt crisp was 75% the wasabi-avocado mousse, and the sea salt crisp may have been the saltiest thing I've ever eaten at a restaurant."

  • "This was our special occasion - it was our anniversary and we wanted to try a new restaurant. We weren't disappointed in the food, SOOO DELICIOUS - the presentation was great - our waiter Ben was always right there if we needed something. I have already passed the word around - everyone must try Seasons 52 - you won't be disappointed."

  • "My wife and I loved the Seasons concept of this restaurant, with 4 rotating menus throughout the year. The suggested wine list was spot on and our waitress helped us decide on a perfect choice. The food portions are of medium size, so you feel like you are getting a great taste of the dish at a reasonable price. We split the lamp skewers app, arugala salad (which was fairly large), Scallops entree and a lobster flat bread pizza. These were all delicious and we can't wait to return! The desserts were amazing! (Key lime pie and chocolate peanut butter pie) They are all personal sized in shot glasses. The main dining room was vibrant and full on a thursday evening, but multiple private rooms allow seating if you want a quieter meal."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "I ordered a bottle sparkling water with ice and lemon. The wait person brought me a sparkling water (which was not as bubbly as it should have been) with lime and no ice. It took another 10 minutes to get it right!. The wait person did not listen to me. Also, she tried to push the salmon salad. My friend and I do not like salmon and told her that. Once again she tried to push it. Obviously, again, she did not listen to us..."

  • "When I made the reservation at Seasons 52, I told them it was our anniversary......they did not even acknowledge it!! The food was ok but the ambience was not enjoyable. The live music is bad! I would say that this restaurant is nothing special."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "An interesting concept with all menu items less than 475 calories. Fair selection of items. Flatbreads are particularly good. However the service was poor at best. It was over an hour from the time we were seated until we received our entrees. Took 20 minutes to get the check after we asked for it. Given Seasons is part of a very large national chain I would think they should have better service standards. The restaurant has been open long enough to iron out startup problems. This is a management problem."

  • "Our waitress disappeared for long periods of time. We got both of our appetizers before she even took our main course order"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "It is so nice to go out...eat healthy food...have good service...in a lovely environment. It is not "ultimate gourmet food". But it is certainly a change to eat good food without the exorbitant calories!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Excellent design. Very good ambience, and atmosphere. lighting in dining area a little too dim. Service rather slow, but I expect will improve with time. Nice wine list. A little pricey for the nature and quality of food offered. Good desert selections attractively offered. Good location. Not truly an up-scale evening gourmet spot although could be so with improvement in menu choices and service."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "We like Seasons 52 and were anxious to try this branch. From the moment we walked in, the reception was disorganized, and it went downhill from there. Our waiter was ill trained and overworked. He came and went without finishing what he came for in the first place. The poor service ruined our meal ."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Overall the experience was good. However, I do have a few recommendations / suggestions: 1) Please make sure the dinner guest have their wine before the main menu comes. We had a to wait, and were almost half way through before we got our wine with our entree. Disappointing. 2) My husband had to ask for a knife once his entree arrived. Again, this should have been checked before the entree arrived. 3) The peas with my scallop dish weren't great. I'd recommend "petit pois" - much nicer. 4) Your wine menu could improve. I tried 3 different wines - asking for an oaky chardonnay. They were either too buttery or bland. I'd recommend St. Michelle Chardonnay. Thank you, Julie"

  • "Seasons 52 menu features fresh and calorie-conscious food presented tastefully. The flatbread choices were particularly flavorful. The mahi mahi soft tacos, at least the one time I had it, was flavorful, but brought to the table cool. The mini desserts are just right for that touch of sweet at the end of a meal."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I have been to Season's 52 now twice and it was fabulous! The selection of appetizers was very good (ravioli stuffed with goat cheese),dinners delicious and healthy without tasting like cardboard! My friend and I both had the salmon with vegetables (asparagus, carrots) and roasted potatoes;.the dill mustard sauce was on the side and delicious. Our waitress, Sophie, was very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. As soon as we sat down, we noticed the that the booth of people behind us were very loud to the point I could not hear my friend speak. Sophie got the manager, we were moved to another booth. She gave us a yummy complimentary dessert which are these small parfaits, plenty to satisfy your sweet tooth. I would definitely go back."

  • "I've been to Seasons 52 five times since it opened. The food is great, ambiance attractive, and my wishes for a quiet table away from noise and traffic have been honored each time. The price is very reasonable, too. A glass of wine, appetizer, entree, dessert and coffee have yet to cost more than $50 including tip. My one criticism: there's a bit of over-sollicitation by the wait staff. I don't need to be checked on quite so much nor do I need so much superficially pleasant banter. I'm much more interested talking to the person I came with."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "A friend of mine and I went for a brief dinner. My friend had a salad with salmon. It had lots of eye appeal, it was a good portion, and my friend enjjoyed it. I had the scallops and they were delicious. I don't like couscous so they gave me spinach instead. Everything was great."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "The menu is small but very varied and creative, the food is elegantly plated. There is a gluten free menu and especially sensitive to food allergies. The atmosphere is festive. Some of the servers are a bit new and a bit intrusive, but that is to be expected in a new restaurant."

  • "Food was seasonal & fresh. Everything we ordered was delicious. However, the service was awful - definitely not up to par with the food. Waters ordered but not received until we asked a second time. Ordered a beer as soon as we sat down. Never received. Finally had to ask during my meal. Ordered wine - waitress had to keep coming back 3 times exhausts they were out of the first three we tried to order. Veggies came out so long before the rest of the food - cold by the time we had meals to eat with them."

  • "Truly a rare find in a mall! Fresh ingredients, great wine selection as well as signature cocktails. Friendly, attentive staff. Wedge salad with crab was outstanding. Recommend if in Chestnut Hill!"

  • "Reservation made for the same evening, with wide open availability, suggesting the restaurant wasn't busy. Not so! It really meant the restaurant accepts reservations without any regard to their ability to accommodate. When we arrived, there were already many irate customers waiting for tables, yet the hostess said "it will just be a moment while we clear your table." 15 minutes later when she gave the same line to others, I asked if they were really waiting for tables to be cleared. She confessed she was actually waiting for people to leave. Meanwhile another customer had been waiting 40 minutes for a take-out order she was told would take 20. Take your blood pressure meds if you want to enjoy your dining experience! (Food was so-so)"

  • "We took some friends for a late lunch on Sunday. Seasons52 has only been open 4 months and we were anxious to try it. We were not disappointed! The vegetarian special was lovely to look at with a delicious variety from veggie taco to tofu and new asparagus. The scallops were beautifully presented with fresh pea.risotto and asparagus. We particularly liked the inexpensive individual desserts. A+ all around!"

  • "We were celebrating a 70th birthday. My husband received a warm happy birthday wish from the hostess upon entering the restaurant and also from our waitress. We had a nice booth, our waitress was friendly and attentive. We ordered the Lobster Flatbread Pizza as our appetizer, it was excellent. I had the Organic Baby Spinach salad and my husband ordered the Kalymnos Greek, both were excellent. Main entree was Cedar-Plank Roasted Salmon and the Shrimp Cavatappi Pasta. He raved about the Salmon, my meal was very good but I think I would order something else on our next visit. I loved the idea of a Mini Indulgence dessert. I had the Mocha Macchiato and he, the Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cannoli."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I was somewhat disappointed because the place was recommended to me by a friend. The restaurant itself is quite beautiful. Our waiter was quite nice, but not up to par. The drinks ordered had to be sent back because they tasted like water. Dinner was tasty (scallops), but nothing special. Asked for bread and waiter said that because of caloric content he hadn't offered or brought any over. We said that we would like to have some and it was quite delicious, and warm from the oven. Never heard of such a thing. I can't give this place a bad review, but wouldn't pick it as a place that I would recommend to others."

  • "We had a reservation for 7:30 and arrived at 7:25. Were told they were getting the table ready but would have to wait a few minutes. We waited, and waited. Whenever we would go to ask how much longer, we were told just a few minutes. Eventually, while we were waiting, anoither party of 4 arrived. They DID NOT have a reservation for this date. They had it for a week later! They were immediately seated and we continued waiting. After almost a one hour wait we were seated. The Manager, to make up for this, offered -after we asked - to comp us a round of drinks. When the drinks arrived, they were not what we had ordered. Doubt we will return to this restaurant."

  • "First time visit for 5 of us. Comfy half circle booth made us feel cozy in a large restaurant. Our server, Ben, was outstanding. Great suggestions for wines, food, etc. Food quality and presentation was great. We had all,types of food covered...grilled scallops to roast pork tenderloin to salad and vegetarian delight. Try the variety of dessert shots...just enough to top off a delightful meal. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Flat breads are a good start. (S52 doesn't serve bread for the table) Salads are fresh ( missed the beats salad but I think it's seasonal) The spring rolls were tasty with sauce/dips. Bronzino & salmon good choices. Vegetables always fresh. No fried food ( S52 style), so no French fries. The desserts with the flash light presentation are a bit ridiculous. The piano man/woman doesn't make any sense, They are not that good and you just want to tune it out. Service ok; bar drinks could be better/faster."

Desserts were a perfect size to please,,,, Didn't mind the wait even though we had a reservation ...but the waiter we had didn't seem to care at all very slow and you never saw him during the meal .. The first time we went to dinner here the experience was much better that's came back...."
