Seasons 52 - Cincinnati
MeatballGreat food, great service from Winston, beautiful ambiance, interesting variety on menu.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!This was my 4th trip, and it never disappoints! Something for everyone. Excellent service.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day treatVery inviting, wonderful atmosphere and
very friendly. Food was very good and tasty.
Portions were spot on, was able to eat everything.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat but low food supplyEverything was wonderful but because this is the first Mother's Day Season's 52 Cincinnati was open, they were unable to prepare food supply adequately. They were out of several key dishes and wines, but management responded well and we left very happy!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Overall ExperienceI took my mother here for dinner on Mother's Day on a whim. First, they have complimentary valet parking. Now this isn't a big deal because the parking lot is right out front but it's a nice touch nonetheless. When we went inside, I was surprised by how contemporary the inside was. Lots of earth tones: dark wood, leather, sandstone, etc. The bar area is inviting and they had a pianist sitting in the middle of the bar playing, but it wasn't overpowering. The wine list is spectacular - all hand-picked by their master sommelier. Now for the food - keep in mind there's a focus on health and this translates into smaller portions. Just an entree won't cut it. We shared an app, each had a salad and an entree and we were plenty satisfied.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHealthy Food, Good ValueWhile the Seasons 52 would not rate as a destination restaurant, it is a pleasant, well-staffed place featuring a healthy, good-tasting variety at a reasonable price. There is an extensive wine list, which I did not sample for lunch. They scrupulously report calories, and there is no deep fryer. We had an excellent shrimp and scallop ceviche as an appetizer. My sister liked her cedar planked salmon, and my mother her rather large entree crab salad. I was somewhat disappointed in my porterhouse (claimed to come in at 475 calories), which was a little overcooked and under-spiced, served with a lame brown sauce. Small portions of rich deserts are served in little glasses. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place and all employeesGreat place and all employees are so friendly and professional.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA gemA cosmopolitan atmosphere and very comfortable. I felt like guest in a friend's home from the moment I walked in the door. Service has been consistently excellent. the food has been excellent every time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIntelligent DiningWhere else can you get a fabulous meal with impeccable service and not trash your diet?5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a lot of fun. Meals wereHad a lot of fun. Meals were delicious and healthful.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Find!My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch; we found it delicious and healthy. Great effort has been put into offering a good selection of many healthy choices that are quite tasty. Our server was well versed on the selections and offered helpful ideas for ordering or sharing items on the menu. The desserts are quite delicious and just enough to satisfy that sweet tooth.
Although there is the open kitchen that is popular everywhere these days, there are tables that can be requested away from the noise.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFanatastic Hyde Park GemI celebrated my 35th birthday here with a group of friends and truly enjoyed it. There was a birthday card waiting for me upon my arrival and the service only got better from there. This restaurant takes care of the small details from start to finish. The food was delicious (I ordered the scallops) and the ambiance was great.
I even received a framed picture of my dinner party.
This was my first visit and I would highly recommend this place for any special occasion or just a nice dinner out. Well done Seasons 52.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat an exciting surpiseWe had all heard of it, but it was the first visit for us all. We were more than pleasantly surpised at the tastiness of the food, the beauriful presentation and the price. We'll all be back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVeganeseGreat selection of vegan and vegetarian options. The quinoa is offered as a side but is a meal.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out for birthdayGreat night out for birthday celebration. Only thing that surprised me was we ordered desserts and were charge for all of them even though one was for a birthday. Not a big deal just surprised because most other restaurants provide this for a birthday person.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCheck it out!Our lunch experience was most enjoyable. Food, service and atmosphere made for a productive business lunch. Local food critic opinion is way off base. Seasons 52 is a nice experience in dining. hope to try it for dinner soon.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Neighborhood FindFrom the moment you are greeted you feel like you are in a busteling neighborhood restaurant with great food choices and very fresh ingredients.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood stuff.Took my mother there for her BDay.

There was honestly no pause, I was greeted and led to my table. When the waiter arrived he already knew our names and the special event we were celebrating. He was very knowledgeable of the menu and wine list. The champagne toast and picture was a nice touch. I have not had a better experience at a restaurant following a reservation. Will absolutely be back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is what I expectThe food is what I expect on a night out, something delicious that it takes a talented chef to make. Nothing was strange, good ingredients put together to create great tastes. We had one of the flatbread and also mushroom apps, both left us wanting more they were so good. We went for our wedding anniversary, and were happy we did.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousI can finally go out to eat and not feel guilty becasue the menu is fresh and healthy!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal yet.

A nice addition to the local dining scene.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding butThe food was outstanding but paled in comparison to the service and the ambiance of the restaurant. Was well impressed.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding wine list andOutstanding wine list and very nice atmosphere. The fact that the menu is all low calorie options may scare some people who are looking for flavor. But the food is still excellent.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHealthy Lunch OptionStill hard to believe all this food is under 475 calories. Very tasty and very good. Thank you for the healthy lunch option!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVegan friendlySome of the menu items seem priced a bit high but most are are moderate. The food is beautifully presented and it is great to be able to have so many healthy & vegan choices.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated right behindWe were seated right behind the hostess booth, and right along the divider next to the bar. The noise from the bar area and the piano player/singer were so loud that I could not hear my four fellow dining companions. Also because of the noise I could hardly hear what our wait staff had to say. It also didn't help that he had a speech issue. I left with a headache.
I'd love to return for dinner with my husband, but his tolerance is low for noise and the ability to know what the wait staff is saying to him.
My dining companions were there that evening to scout the restaurant for this year's office Christmas luncheon. Not too sure now.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSeasons 52 lived up to itsSeasons 52 lived up to its billing. Portions were modest but filling. We had an excellent server, too.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe squeezed into the restaurantWe squeezed into the restaurant on a Sunday as they closed. The entire staff were very friendly and accomodating. They were out of a few things but everything we ordered tasted fresh and wonderful. We appreciated the late option on a Sunday and were not made to feel unwelcome. I've eaten here a few times and the service has always been wonderful.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for a Group DinnerWhat a great evening. It was my birthday and I had reserved a table for 8. Our table was ready when I arrived, and there was a nice card on the table wishing me a Happy Birthday. Our server, Brigit was fantastic. We ordered champagne that was promptly served at 7:30, as requested. She greeted each of our guests as they arrived and gave us plenty of time to chat as well as review the menu. She took all 8 orders without taking notes, and everything was served as ordered. Quite impressive. Service, wine and food were terrific. Salads are huge - consider splitting one if you also order an entrée. This is a great place for groups and special occasions!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was healthy, fresh andFood was healthy, fresh and delicious. Their flatbread appetizers are delicious. Service was very good. I would recommend this place to all4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for lunch also. MenuGreat for lunch also. Menu has some great lunch picks as well as some entree specials. Ahi tuna salad was great. Deserts are fun.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining with 2 otherGreat dining with 2 other couples.loved the actic char and the flatbreads. Deserts are perfectly sized. 60 wines available by the glass and present good value.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was great andThe service was great and our server, Jay, was very knowledgeable of the menu items and made great recommendations. I requested a quiet table and we were placed at a table in the front room. It was very quiet and was great, I was with my grandmother who can't hear very well anymore.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice experience, my onlyVery nice experience, my only complaint was our server never came back and asked for drink refills. It was extremely busy, but I was disappointed because by the time she came back after our food was served everyone else in my party was ready to leave. Other than that one minor issue, it was definitely worth going back again.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed dinner at SeasonsReally enjoyed dinner at Seasons 52 last night. The menu is creative and healthy and my dinner as well as my friend's were delicious. One portion of the menu changes every quarter ("Seasons") and there are also a few weekly specials ("52"). I chose one of the weeklies (arctic char) and my friend had one of the seasonals (filet mignon). We each treated ourselves to a mini dessert and it was just the right amount of sweetness to end the meal. Mocha Machiato and Peanut Butter [something or other, don't remember the actual name] were the two we selected.
Reservations are still a good idea, even on a week night. The restaurant was full on a Monday night at 8:00 pm.
Good wine selection.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a special luncheon!The menu items were delicious and portion size was perfect for us - trying to avoid the extra french fries, bread, and other high calorie temptations. Our daughter was there for her birthday luncheon so we had to indulge ourselves and have one of the mini-desserts which were delicious. The wait staff is attentive and food and the ambiance makes it an enjoyable experience.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThird time visiting sinceThird time visiting since their opening. The food is great. I have tried different things on each visit and everything is delicious. The chicken pesto flatbread is a must try. Mini desserts are great too.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated by the serverWe were seated by the server station .
