    I heard great things about Seasons 52, but unfortunately, was not overly impressed. I ordered the pan seared whole Branzino - flavor was decent but there were so many bones! I wouldn't have minded long, thin bones but these were short, thick, and sharp. I think I left with 2 cuts in my mouth. I probably won't return.

    We were impressed by the venue, but it was extremely loud. It was rather difficult to hear our server throughout the dinner. We were able to order our food in a timely fashion, and items came at a good pace. However, one of our partie's meals did not come along with the rest. Our friend didn't get her meal until we were almost done. Apologies were given by the manager and the meal was comped. Our server then offered the table to enjoy dessert on the house, but the guest who's meal came late, is allergic to sugar. The server didn't offer another alternative, and our guest was left again with no food, while we ate. I realize they were trying to make it right, but with the amount of money we were paying for our meals, we expected more.

    The entire experience (a Friday night) at Seasons 52 in Cincinnati was terrific. I have visited locations in other cities, but this one was amazing. The live music and singing was top notch, and I don't know the last time I had such a delicious meal. Scallops, mushroom trio flatbread, and of course the mini desserts were all incredible. Don't miss this restaurant!

    I was there with a friend to celebrate her birthday. While this is one of my favorite restaurants, we arrived just as they had changed to the Fall menu. The change in menu is outstanding, and even though one may have a favorite, you will not go wrong by selecting one of the new menu choices. The wait person that we had was delightful, and helped to make my friend's birthday experience a joy! Thank you Seasons 52 for another great dining experience

  • A WONDERFUL MEAL

    Our foursome had a wonderful meal at Seasons 52. Each of us had a nice glass or two of wine to start out the festivities. Two of us had the Spy Valley Sauvignon bland which showed Marlborough New Zealand at its best. Others had the Chardonnay, and one of the reds. My appetizer of the Caesar Salad with kale was perfect, followed by the chili which was one of the most delightful chili variants in recent memory. My wife had the cedar plank salmon, which was not quite up to past experience at 52, citing that it seemed quite dry. Our friends were very happy with their spinach salad, mozzarella and tomato salad, and entrees.

    Season 52 is an excellent restaurant. You can't go wrong with the wine flight and delicious flat bread with artichokes and goat cheese. The crust is crispy and flavors delicious. I got the organic greens salad and lobster tail for dinner. It was great. My husband got the pork tenderloin. We have been here many times and never have been disappointed.

    For both lunch and dinner I have found the menu (and the food) to range from basic to spectacular, with each level having true gems. Some dishes are current and available in many restaurants, but they taste special here. And there is always something for the adventurous. I have never had a bad meal and dine here frequently.

    We have eaten here before and the food is reliably good. It is not gourmet but well done and satisfying. We had a Branzino special which was quite good. Service was very good. Maybe a little loud at times. The special small desserts are quite good and a nice size for a sweet treat.

    The flatbread appetizer was incredibly thin and crisp with a snap to it even with the mushroom topping. The entree scallops with risotto and asparagus were cooked just right. The portions were just right for me: filling but not overly so. The dessert tray had so many good choices that it was hard to choose. It is nice to have a dessert that is on the small-side like these were. Who needs tons of calories to enjoy the decadence of a sweet. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. The noise level was a little high, but we were in a booth near the bar musician. The four of us could still have a conversation, but it would've been hard to hear 1 or 2 more if they'd been at our table. I will definitely recommend Seasons 52 to friends.

    On this occasion, we had 5 happy diners. My seating/table request was accommodated. We celebrated both a birthday & an anniversary. Page was our server & she was just great! All the food was very good with just one exception; Great Grandmother would have preferred the vegetables that accompanied her Cedar Plank Salmon be much more tender.

    This is our favorite restaurant for great food (without over-indulging) and great ambiance. It's a spot we love to share with our friends. The atmosphere lets us enjoy live music yet it's at a perfect sound level allowing conversation without turning it into a shouting match. The staff is always exceptional and make the evening as pleasantly memorable as the food. We'll definitely be back... especially for those delicious miniature desserts!

    We chose Seasons 52 for a quick, but healthy meal before trying to catch a movie.We have eaten there many times before, so we knew what to expect in terms of the menu, but this time, everything just seemed to be prepared just perfectly!We were promptly greeted, quickly seated and taken care of by an attentive server who was happy to comply with our short-time frame.We don't usually race through dinner, but in an hour's time we enjoyed a tasty crisp salad (large enough to share), entrees (Trout with a side of amazing oak grilled broccoli for me; Shrimp Cavatappi for my husband) and even a shared dessert. From the spotless flatware to the prompt service to the reliably good food, Seasons 52 stands a head taller than other chain restaurants.

    Overall, the concept of the menu is good. The execution is typically top notch, but the food tends to lack ingredients to some degree because they only want so many calories per dish (aka - no butter). The service started out exceptional and then it went downhill. It appeared he had too many tables. The floor was disgusting and a knife was laying on the floor next to us for 30 minutes before I finally picked it up. Several servers saw it and ignored it with one walking around it multiple times. I would recommend it only if it wasn't a special night out.

    I have been to this restaurant 5 or 6 times since it opened-for lunch and for dinner. It has been consistently good- food, service, ambiance. I have never felt rushed, even when the place is crowded. Reservations are easily made on line and I appreciate that these are honored and I don't have to wait when I arrive. As if this weren't enough, the food selections are healthy and original. The free valet parking is a nice touch and helps relieve parking anxiety in this very busy area. Definitely going back!

    I took a team of people for a work dinner and we had a great time. The service was terrific and the food was wonderful. Lots of choices so everyone can find something they like. The little desserts are terrific - why doesn't everyone do this?? Sometimes I skip dessert because it is massive and expensive but for a few bites of something sweet after a terrific dinner, these are wonderful!
