    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!

    I've been to the new Seasons 52 in Cincinnati twice and it has been a great experience every time. My wife's family came from New York for a visit and we took them to Seasons 52 for dinner. Everyone loved everything!!! The wine was amazing. My father-in-law and I both had a couple of Old Fashioned's (there's no middle ground for one of these, it's either good or it isn't and I would recommend this drink to anyone who's a bourbon fan). We started off with a lobster appetizer that was to die for. My in laws were a little hesitant on seafood just because they're so close to the ocean, but they were impressed with the quality of food. I had the rack of lamb and was overjoyed. If you haven't been, you need to stop and get there now!!

    This place is great every time we dine. We've never had a bad meal and our service is always good. My husband loves the scallops and filet. I usually try something new each time. The flight & flatbread is a great deal and a good way to start the night. We will be back soon!

    Most dishes are 475 calories or lower. And they have a good variation of meat, salads and fish courses. In general very well prepared both taste wise and esthetics. The desserts are delicious and served in small portions all brought to your table for you to pick from (this often defeats the purpose as I pick more than one, but that's on me ;-) . Improvement: Add espresso to the coffee selection. The mascarpone dessert should be mixed with some thing else like vanilla cream etc. Just mascarpone and berries is not good. All other desserts though, are yummy.

    Having reservations available to guests was wonderful and we were seated immediately. Kelly, our server, was EXCELLENT!! She made great recommendations and let me try her wine recommendation before ordering. The manager came to our table with a tasting since we were first time diners which I thought was an excellent touch. It was a wonderful dining experience and very fresh and healthy options. Would recommend to my friends and family.

    The service was amazing. Everyone from the hostess to the manager gave a personal touch by knowing our names. Very friendly staff. The food is excellent however my guest and I would like to see more menu items. My date suggested going somewhere else because he couldn't find anything to his liking. I think a few more entree choices would make this a 5 star restaurant. The food is delicious however and the service can't be beat. The atmosphere is also very nice. Over all we had a great time.

    This was a return visit and reinforced my initial positive impressions. My guest especially enjoyed the rack-of-lamb dish and was extremely grateful that it was served 'rare' as requested. The volume level of the 'singer' performing in the front area of the restaurant was intolerable and we had to request moving to a more distant table. Some people may enjoy this kind of background noise: we most certainly did not. The servers at the two tables were unfailingly pleasant, polite, and very helpful.

Perfect place to celebrate (as we did) an anniversary. Waiter offered to take our picture and it was printed in minutes and presented to us in a nice folder! Also provided a complementary dessert.

    Seasons 52 is an upscale chain. Understanding this will influence your opinions. The menu is well designed and has a wide variety. Some items are a hit others are a large miss. My vegetarian friend had a wonderful and inventive plate. My lobster flatbread was a big disappointment. The wine list, which is touted as offering excellent pairings, is not that wonderful. Service is spotty. It took us 20 minutes to get our check after requesting it. The Cincinnati location has wonderful outside dining but overlooks a parking lot and the valet parking stand. Not the best ambience. For the price and experience I would still recommend a small locally owner/operated restaurant.

    Husband had the salmon on the cedar plank and it was great and a good size portion. I had the brazine fish which was taste but such a small portion. Thought the price of 27 dollars for this entre was too much for the small portion. This was our second time at Seasons 52. We will not be returning here.
