    This was my second visit to Seasons 52 with my daughter who is attending college in Chicago. You are currently her favorite restaurant! We opened with a Shrimp cocktail (the shrimp were huge!). Her Swordfish dish was a first for her and she loved it. She also loves the mint lemonade. My Filet was cooked perfectly. All vegetables were fresh and delicious. The squash side was very good! Our waiter was very attentive and made some excellent suggestions for both meal and desserts!!! You are a top notch restaurant. The atmosphere is very nice for both dining and enjoying company.

    This was our second visit to Seasons 52. Our server, Kelly was outstanding! She was friendly, fun and really helpful. I have special dietary needs and she made sure the chef and kitchen accommodated me deliciously! Zoe behind the bar on the piano sang pretty songs, not too loud and she has an amazing voice. It was a really pleasant Thursday evening experience!

    From the moment my friend and I sat down the experience was wonderful. Our server Paul was amazing and taught us about several new wines and was so knowledgeable about everything Seasons has to offer. The produce is all bought from local farms which I love they are supporting the community. The salmon was delicious and all of the menu item are under 475 calories. Paul showed us the best experience I've ever had in a restaurant.

    Started with the lump crab salad- C minus, not enough crab too little dressing. The trout was excellent, A plus. Great piece of fish accompanied by carrots and baby potatoes, nice tartar sauce as well. Broiled scallops, solid B, cooked well, nice sized portion, good but not outstanding. Service was very friendly but inattentive. Wine list was awesome. I might be tempted to try it again, haven't written it off, but not high on my "must" return list.

    Stumbbled across this spot during a recent getaway weekend to Chicago. Service (Daniel) was outstanding. Menu very diverse, and extremely fresh seafood. Also had filet and it was cooked aged and seasoned to perfection. Outstanding setting. This is a must stop and will be on our top 5 list from now on . . .

    Our experience at Seasons 52 was very positive with a few exceptions. The food my family ordered was great, but I'd say my fish was just fair with not much flavor. The desserts was good and for a great price. Loved the look and mood of the place, but thought the piano bar was a bit too loud and made it hard to talk.

    Last night was our first, but certainly not our last, dinner at Seasons 52. Sean, our waiter, greeted us by name and was professional, helpful, and friendly throughout. I was honest with him that we there because we couldn't secure a reservation across the street at Joe's, but because of the positive reviews we felt confident, but still a bit nervous, that we were going to be satisfied with our selection. The bottom line is that we were extremely pleased, much more than simply satisfied, with our dinner at Seasons. The decor is tasteful, not too brightly lit nor too dark, the noise level was muted, the wine and food were excellent. Sean's professional service topped off a memorable, delicious dinner. We didn't miss Joe's for a moment.

    We love the bar with the live piano player who takes requests. The first time we went we sat at the bar for the whole meal. This time we went with another couple and sat in the dining area and it was just as nice and could still hear the piano. The flat bread pizzas are amazing. Overall fun experience.

    I had a longer review but this doesn't allow you to give detail so here you go: Great décor and ambience, slow service in between coursed, grainy filet and tasteless overcooked green beans as a side, way too salty and over seasoned salmon, unique approach to desserts that allow you to taste without wasting. Nice bar/lounge area. I am definitely going to give this place another chance.

    We dine here for the healthy offerings and fresh ingredients. We came on this occasion to meet friends visiting from out of town. We especially liked the wine tasting, which consisted of a three-selection flight of wines, followed by a glass of the favorite and a flatbread, a really nice way to try several wines and enjoy an appetizer before the main course.

    Fantastic in every aspect. Great location with convenient Valet parking. Friendly, professional, respectful staff. Hip, trendy sophisticated atmosphere. Live entertainment that was subtle, not disruptive to table conversation. Food was amazingly delicious from start to finish. The arugula-topped Chicken Pesto Flatbread is like no other, providing a unique twist to a familiar recipe. The silky, smooth decadant Butternut Squash soup is a Seasonal best. You cannot leave without trying. This gem should be served year-round; the fresh Fall flavor is a crowd pleaser. The chicken was superbly seasoned; its delicate flavor & tender meat seemed to melt in your mouth. The accompanying jus made me want to lick the plate clean. Love Love LOVE!

    This restaurant is an experience even without the food. With a live piano player singing along to today's hits creates a great atmosphere. The food changes per season and is all under 500 calories. Not only is the food delicious, but you don't have to feel guilty about having a dessert shooter at the end of the meal. Recommend to anyone who enjoys fresh food and an extensive wine pallet.

    Use of fresh ingredients with a simple but elegant presentation makes for a healthy, flavor full, dining experience. They have a section of the menu that changes with the seasons, so that fresh summer ingredients are served in the summer and fresh winter ingredients in the winter, etc. The entrees with accompaniments are well thought out, and the taste of the individual items stand out by themselves. If your looking for rich cream sauces and foods drenched in butter, this is not the place. If your looking for menu choices that are worthy of a night out without feeling guilty about your health, then you will probably enjoy this restaurant. Prices are reasonable for the quality of ingredients and care of preparation.

    We to Season's 52 for our anniversary on 9/1. Heather was our server and was awesome. The restaurant was not busy due to the holiday and so she gave us lots of attention and was on point. It was also the piano player's first night and she was fantastic; beautiful voice and talented. As with our first visit (2 weeks earlier), the food was amazing. We started the meal with the Mozzarella & Heirloom tomatoes. We had this the first time we came here and loved it. For our main course, I had the Bronzini fish which I never had before. It was grilled perfectly and was amazing. My husband had ravioli and enjoyed it too. We added a side of grilled corn and topped the evening off with deserts. Awesome meal and can't wait to go back.

    All courses under 475 calories. They did a nice job on the menu using fresh ingredients and keeping sauces light. My wife had a very tasty branzino and I had the scallops, served over a corn risotto that was delicious.

    Nice, approachable, reasonable wine list with more than the usual California suspects. I tried the fish tacos and they were delicious. Lots of mini-dessert choices that you will have trouble choosing from. The dining room configuration, mostly booths is fantastic. Kudos! Great location near the Shops at Northbridge and the Grand CTA Red line shop. Perfect for meeting friends, family, or a date or go solo at the bar with a small plates bar menu.

    This was less of a dinning out occasion and more of an experience. The Lamb, Fig and Bacon Flatbread, and dessert was outstanding. The server knew how to take care of the table, and we were served with speed. There was a man playing the piano at the bar, and he was loud enough to hear but not overwhelming. Would go back there again.

    Seasons 52 ha become one of my favorites spots. Everything I've orderes has been amazing. This week, I tried their Filet. For place that isn't know as a steakhouse it was wonderful. The sauce was perfect and it melted in your mouth. Great Job. I especially enjoy the atmosphere. The piano player or someone singing ballots is just perfect.

    I attended Seasons 52 for a Birthday dinner. The ambiance was great as was the food. I ordered the Cedar Plank Salmon. It was fresh, light and we'll seasoned. I didn't feel stuffed afterwards. Our server was Danny who apologized for not saying Happy Birthday to the honoree, but gave the honoree a dessert cup on the house which was delicious might I add!!! The hostess came over to take a picture of us and gave us a copy to take home. Very nice. I highly recommend a visit to this downtown location.

    This was our 2nd time. We stumbled on it during a winter visit in January 2014 and it was across the street from Hilton Conrad. Amazing then, and amazing again on our 8/22/14 visit. The food claims to have all dishes uber 450 calories, but you would not know it by taste. We had rainbow trout, and a chef special salmon. We had a steak and blue cheese flatbread for appetizer, and a grilled corn veggie side with the entrees. We were full but not stuffed when we left, which is just awesome! Love this place! We forced ourselves to go to a different restaurant the 2nd night in town, and we wished we had just went back to try something else on their menu.

    A group of us were in the city and decided to try the new Seasons 52 downtown. I had been to some of the other locations and this one did not disappoint me either. We had a fun round booth, our waiter suggested some appetizers and entrees and all were delicious. Several of us had a martini and were very happy. I even had a dessert martini!! Don't miss the mini desserts. Just enough after your meal. Our waiter was very attentive, we never felt rushed even though we did have dessert and after dinner drinks and sat and talked for a while. Great place.

    My staff of 8 and I had dinner at the restaurant to celebrate many months of hard work. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, with the exception of the volume of the singing and piano entertainment. It was very difficult to converse with people at the opposite end of the table because of the loudness of the music. However, when we weren't talking, we enjoyed the variety of songs. The food was superb and our waiter was terrific. The restaurant itself is beautiful and conducive to having an enjoyable time. I have recommended the restaurant to co-workers and other friends and plan on returning.
