    Very busy restaurant, but with reservation on Open Table we were seated in just a few minutes from arriving. We shared a few appetizers, salad and dinner. Ahi tuna Asian salad was amazing. Tuna Avocado sushi roll was good. Rack of lamb was excellent and cooked perfectly. Good wine list with lots to choose from.

    Even though this is a chain, it seems less chainy due to the ever-changing menu. My dinner was delish. After sharing a flatbread as an app, I had the filet. My husband had the recommended branzino. It was gross. We found out later that branzino should be avoided in the states since it's a Mediterranean fish that is mostly farmed. It looked like the chef just put a bunch of stuff on my husband's plate. The waitress seemed bummed that we ordered beer instead of wine. It took forever to get waters and then later the beers. She never asked if we wanted more beers (we did). Two different people tried to push the shot glass desserts on us, which was annoying. We weren't impressed. We hit Cheesecake Factory for dessert :)

    Knowledgeable staff made for and exciting dining experience. Flatbreads, stuffed mushrooms, Scallops and Rack of Lamb were our choices. All were excellently prepared and presented. Desserts have to be seen and tasted as they were sinfully delicious. This is an upscale resturant of the type one woul expect to find in Baltimore or DC and is priced in line with them. Accordingly although they were busy our server,Katie, was attentive and did not rush us. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and seated immediately leaving just under two hours later very pleased with our choice to dine at Seasons52.

    Dined on 9/26/2014
    I had the steak salad and It was very lackluster. Steak was underseasoned but cooked well. Salad and dressing you could get better quality at your local grocery store. Couldnt even finish my plate because I didnt want to. The flatbread appetizer was very good. And the cedar plank salmon was ok. Veggies were undercooked however. The wine list was very nice abut there was very little beer selection. This is more of a wine place anyway so thats not that big of a kicker. Server was nice but mis-charged our credit cards. Took 20 min to correct. All in all. The food was so-so but quite expensive. Its a nice and fun place, and my recommendation is if you come here avoid the salads. Go big and get a steak or lamb chops. They are much better.

    Everything was tasty, including their signature flat breads. The soup of the day was a bit too spicy for my taste; and while I would not criticize Seasons 52 for offering a soup that appeals to many people with more adventurous taste buds than mine, I fault them slightly for not warning me--one does not normally expect that a butternut squash soup will be quite so zesty. Serving sizes were ample without being overwhelming. I still have some reservations about half-portion desserts, but I have to admit that one of them (rather than my usual two) was just perfect to finish off the meal that day. Service was excellent, and the ambiance and noise level were quite pleasant.

    This was our first time dining and we made a reservation to have dinner on my birthday. Outside of a backup at the hostess stand to be seated, everything was fantastic! I received a birthday card from the restaurant, the server filled us in on the premise of the restaurant, food and wine list. Our server (John) was really attentive without being bothersome, and made the experience really enjoyable. The food was phenomenal - it was hard to believe every item was 475 calories or below! They went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful celebration - taking a picture of our party and offering me a complimentary dessert. This restaurant's concept is pretty impressive, and we will definitely be back.

    When I booked the reservation, I was asked if it was a special occasion. I noted that it was my wedding anniversary. I was met at the front desk with a card for my wife and I, a complimentary toast of champagne, a fresh amuse-bouche from the chef himself, and each manager stopped by to wish us Happy Anniversary and ask how we were enjoying the meal. Everything was fresh, delicious, and well crafted. Even though we weren't seated at the piano bar, we could still hear the music, and it was a great soundtrack to an excellent dining experience. We will definitely go back!

    Had an issue with reservation, spoke to the manager who resolved it. Waitress very friendly. When menu selection was not available was given a free desert. Because of these problems manager gave a coupon for money off our next visit. This manager knows how to treat his customers. Changed our opinion from will not come back to definitely will recommend. Food excellent. Flat-bread appetizer great.

    We have enjoyed Season 52 at our winter home in Naples, Florida and we were happy to introduce some friends to this chain when it came here to Columbia, Md. The food was great, fresh, tasty and healthy. Since I am on a Weight Watcher's program I felt wonderful, good food, friends, ambiance and I did not feel the least bit deprived. I was able to stay on program without any problem. The portions were not overly large, more European style and that helped as well.

    Took my son with his wife and two kids 7&9 for his birthday. They raved about the food, son said rainbow trout was the best fish he ever had. Daughter in law loved the food as well. Generous kids portions and quite healthy. My scallops and resoto for the price I felt was bland. Everybody got a kick out of the tiered dessert and even I loved the key lime choice. Thought the advertising of the restaurant with free valet is poor. I live across the street and had no idea you were in the mall.

    The meal was enjoyable. At 8 on a Friday night it was loud and difficult to hear. Everyone in our party of 5 enjoyed their meals, but I felt like for the price I have had better food and an atmosphere more conducive to conversation. We arrived 1/2 hour before our 8:30 reservation and were seated immediately. The time between when people finished their soup and the entrees were served seemed long which meant those who did not order soup waited an hour for any food. The wait staff were friendly and helpful explaining the menu. I was surprised at how large the filet mignon was since all the entrees were under 500 calories.

    We were very excited when Seasons 52 opened in Columbia. We have enjoyed the Seasons 52 in N. Bethesda but the shorter drive to Columbia is going to be a big plus. Our table was ready when we arrived. The larger dining room is very nice and our table toward the back keep the bar noise to a moderate level. The food was outstanding (Swordfish and Lamb) as were the dessert shots. The service was average at best, our server keep apologizing for the delays (only 2 of the 3 entrees came out at first and my wine request with dinner arrived late as well). We also had to ask for water refills and the the clearing of appetizers plates was very slow. Probably just the growing pains of opening a new restaurant. We look forward to our next visit.

    We took my mother for her birthday lunch. We had a reservation and stopped in early to see the restaurant and pick a table. The hostess was more than accommodating in allowing us to reserve a specific table and even put a reserved sign on it. When we came back an hour later, our booth was waiting for us. There was a birthday card on the table from Seasons 52 and then they gave us champagne to toast and a free dessert! The presentation of all food was beautiful and creative and everything tasted great! So many amazing options! I will return!

    We had a business lunch meeting with 6 people at Seasons 52, The Mall in Columbia. The food was excellent -- fresh and flavorful -- and beautifully presented. I enjoyed the butternut squash soup and the pear salad, and my colleagues' barbecue chicken salad looked great. Two people ordered the flatbread -- one steak and blue cheese, which he said was delicious, and the other one ordered the lobster flatbread, which she said did not have much flavor or lobster on it. Everything was served in a timely manner, and the server was courteous and pleasant. The entire process was efficient, enabling us to spend only an hour there for lunch, then get back to work. We will definitely plan to return to this restaurant.

    I have been to this location before with friends. The background music was at a level where you could listen, but still hear this people you were dining with. This was not the case this time. At about 5pm, they had a vocalist playing a keyboard. By the time she was about 30 minutes into her selections , I had to raise my voice in order for the others diners to hear me. Personally, this was not condusive to a relaxing dining experience. I have already written on the website . I felt that they should not get rid of the live music, but have some play the keyboard with no vocalist. I do intend to dine there again.

    My wife and I visited Seasons 52 and found it lack luster. The restaurant design and ambiance was nice however we found the food just okay. We Noticed that the Kitchen had a microwave oven, which for two foodies, one a professional chef, is always a disturbing sight. We ordered small dishes, and a Soup, the soup was okay but lacked the flavor of a stove pot soup but had the flavor of a microwavable soup.

I have been here twice now and both times the front desk seating folks were disorganized even when I had a reservation. All other areas are great but as the first faces we see, this area needs to be much better.

    I was anxious to try the new Seasons 52 at Columbia Mall. The restaurant is new and having problems with the kitchen and wait staff. I ordered the swordfish. The fish was under-seasoned. Half of it was overcooked. The accompanying soba noodles were mushy. The green beans came out shriveled and still had a stem attached. While my entree was comped, it is disturbing that a visibly unappetizing dish even left the kitchen. The waitress failed to refill my friend's drink until she was asked a second time. The music in the bar was extremely loud making conversation difficult. Hopefully, time and experience will overcome these growing pains.
