Seasons 52 - Costa Mesa
Excellent cookeryWe Loved the roasted tomato soup! The fact that they had three menus, regular, vegetarian and vegan was excellent. They know how to cook vegetables properly. It just shows that restaurants can serve vegan food with flair and aplomb. We would highly recommend this eatery to our friends and acquaintances. The prices were reasonable and appropriate.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is fresh. Service isFood is fresh. Service is good. I did have to ask for a refill on the ice tea. It was our second time dining here and we would return. Jeannie was our server. She was friendly and nice.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCheers girlfriend!Seasons 52 is our very favorite lunch spot! We love the healthy, delicious, satisfying food and the lovely bar ambiance. Can't wait for next time.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTo good to be healthyI truly love this place. I love the flatbreads, Ahi anything and skinny drinks. I wish I had one closer to me.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGuilt Free Gourmet FoodSomething on this menu to appeal to every palate and you can order three courses and still not worry about gaining a pound. The flatbreads are memorable and the goat cheese ravioli is to die for. And no matter what, you must save room for one of their mouth watering desserts. The menu changes every quarter so you are met with new surprises every season. The service is surperb. Highly recommended for celebrations and group dining.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!Great menu, great service, perfect sized desserts. Not a better place for lunch that I know of.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently ExcellentThis is one of the few restaurants I can always depend upon to have high quality food and service. My clients always appreciate the fact that everything is low calorie and it helps those of us trying to maintain healthy diets.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA great restaurant with goodA great restaurant with good food, served in proper proportions, and fabulous service. Our waiter, Nikki, did a wonderful job explaining the special items on the menu, and even offered us a tasting of the wines we were considering.
One of our favorite places for a tasty, casual meal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe entire experience is amazing!We come here often and every single time..from the service, to the wine, to the food..all the way to dessert it's always been fantastic!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING RESTAURANTAll I can say is that this restaurant does not disappoint. It is one of our families regular dining spot. Incredible fresh healthy food.
A restaurant who cares about taste and calorie count. Very hard to find. Its not all about fat.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service!I love everything about this restaurant! From the ease of the complimentary valet parking to the perfectly portioned dessert bites! It's a 5 star place to me except for the noise level. We have been there twice for dinner. Both times were extremely noisy and it was difficult to hear one another. If you are looking for spectacular food and service, this is one of my favorites. I would not recommend it for a quiet romantic dinner. We are going again next month and bringing more new people with us!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Great ServiceMade last minute reservations through OT and got right in. Ashley took care of us and she was perfect. Food was right on time and Ashley was there when you needed her and invisible when you didn't. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodAs usual, the food and service were very good. My steak was cook perfectly and everyone else in our party indicated their selection was very good as well.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodLove the concept of the restaurant and that each dish is under 475 calories!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and personalitiesI had a reservation but my sisters were late driving from LA. The hostess held my table in the bar area and then I asked to be moved because of the noise level and my desire to have easy conversation with my sisters. She willingly and politely accommodated me. Our waiter was Jonathan and he was fun, helpful and professional. We were all impressed with the restaurant, food, and service. Also, we were surprised to discover that the valet service was complimentary. We had a great time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMloved the food - too loudFood and service were great. Hubby and I are lste 60's but active and fit. Walking in the door was an assault on the ears. Hard to csrry on s coversation. The food was outstanding, fresh and amzingly healthy. Can someone figure how to do this at a lower decibal level?5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable ExperienceEvery now and then you find a restaurant that does it right. All meals were low calorie, appropriate portions, with excellent presentation. The menu had a good selection and as the name implies, many entrees are seasonal and there are weekly changes as well. We chose the cedar plank salmon for the entree which was cooked to perfection. We had a bottle of pinot noir and enjoyed the ambiance.
Ashley P was a fantastic server. She was very attentive and came by several times to check on us. We were going to a broadway play and she made sure we were out of there in plenty of time. The best part of the experience was the dessert. Ashley brought them in large shot glasses. We picked our favorite and left satisfied but not stuffed!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWork dinnerHad a great experience when I recently dined at Seasons 52. The food was delicious, health conscious and the wait staff was more than courteous. It couldn't have been a better atmosphere for dining with my new manager. Two thumbs up!!!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExuberantWe stopped here for dinner before going to Segerstrom . It was crowded with the after work crowd in both the bar and the dining room. The noise level is extreme so don't plan to have real conversations, but it is a happy place. I would try this again but perhaps at a different time of day.
Intriguing menu, excellent food. We tried one of the flat bread appetizers and the carmelized scallops entre. Both really excellent and enough for two women to split, which they did for us!
Service was friendly, timely and helpful.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHealthy and satisfyingI was pleasantly surprised at the robust flavors of my steak and mushroom flatbread that left me feeling feeling full yet not overstuffed. most of the time I feel packed with greasy food you get at a lot of restaurants. I will definitely go back and possibly indulge in a dessert too.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my favorite restaurantThis is my favorite restaurant for lunch with friends. Great food; moderate calories.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHalibut special !We started with the "cioppino" bowl of soup and the tomato flatbread - YUM. We each had the halibut special and were blown away at how good it was AND low-cal. We will be coming back again soon.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!Healthy dining at its best. You can still enjoy dining out and eating smartly at the same time. Food was presented very well and it was delicious!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNever Disappointed!I'm not sure how Seasons 52 manages to train each and every server to be so service conscious without being annoying. They are remarkable. My husband and I have never had such attention to detail. I drink an unusual amount of water with my meals due to a medical condition and Seasons 52 is the only restaurant I've been to in a long long time that keeps up with my water intake - I never had to ask (most waiters, even in fine dining restaurants, don't check my water glass often enough). If we think of something we want it appears at the table before we can ask. Food is fabulous and every item being under 475 calories is unbelievable. We don't live near the restaurant so we eat there any time we are in the area as its a real treat.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHealthy food and attentive serviceI love this restaurant because they watch calrories for you. Servers were very friendly and attentive.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is wonderful, andThe food is wonderful, and then when you takle nto consideation the health value of the menu, how can you go wrong?5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great and the serviceFood was great and the service to match! Only reason I did not give 100% on service is the waiter failed to bring glass with wine so I had to wait.......5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe like the atmosphere andWe like the atmosphere and the decor. staff always friendly we have had lunch and dinner the food has always been very good. I am not a fan of the deserts served in the little glasses I think small deserts are good but not served like this. I had the Trout om my last visit and would certainly reccommend it and have it again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLunchGreat healthy lunch choices
Ordered hummus, flatbread, shrimp pasta
Shrimp pasta was the best; other two choices while they were good tasted a bit too healthy5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThey are always excellantThey are always excellant for service and we never had a meal that we didn't love.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate here before a symphony.We ate here before a symphony. We like Seasons 52 for its elegant dishes. I had the planked salmon and it was great. We were able to eat outside where it was much quieter and less congested.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat flavor at 475 calories!What they take out in calories they replace with flavor! I am slowly working my way thru their menu and have yet to find anything I didn't love.......after having lunch there on May 1 I decided this was where I needed to make brunch reservations for Mothers day!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat healthy food.The entire menu is full of meals under 450 calories.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's one of our regular restaurantsIt's one of our regular restaurants, and we've always enjoyed the food, ambiance, service. Our waiter tonight has to be recognized. His name is Jonathon and he was incredibly attentive and so nice. That makes all the difference in a great dining experience.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe items in Section 2 didn'tThe items in Section 2 didn't particularly apply for our first time there for dinner, but I've enjoyed Seasons 52 in the past for lunch, so I know it's "great for lunch."
We enjoyed everything about the evening, though: food was excellent, our waitress was just perfect, and it was a great place to go before the theatre.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalWe came here based on a recommendation from a friend. We were very glad we followed up on the recommendation. The food was appealing, expertly described and presented and delicious. Our server, Nick, could have been the best server we have ever had. He completely believes in the concept and described it with a passion that is usually reserved for the owner. He treated us like guests in his own home. He was the perfect compliment for this great restaurant. I applaud the management of this facility for an excellent concept, great execution and a superior staff. We are hooked and will dine here often.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only concern was the noiseMy only concern was the noise level, it was difficult to carry on a conversation without having to repeat myself and the noise was somewhat distracting.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy Seasons 52.We always enjoy Seasons 52. The frequent menu changes are fun and they re vegetarian friendly without being boring4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience was superb,Our experience was superb, food exquisite and atmosphere fun yet relaxing.

Had the flatbread as an appetizer with artichokes and goat cheese - very good. For lunch I had the Ahi Salad which was great, with very good salad dressing. And of course the mini deserts!!! Lemon curd mini desert a hit at our table.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough it took an extraAlthough it took an extra long time to get our main course, the food was very good. Fortunately we were not in a hurry or it could have been uncomfortable.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVery accomodating for ourVery accomodating for our 1.5 hour lunch meeting. Service tremendouse and food very tasty and presented well.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience was excellentOur experience was excellent over all. Wonderful food! Loved the desserts. I checked moderate in the noise box, because there was no option for loud. You have energetic there, which I guess would be a way of saying loud. We would definitely recommend your restaurant to friends and family4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is hard to believe thatIt is hard to believe that nothing on the menu is over 475 calories ... yet everything is so flavorful. We brought a couple that had never been to the restaurant before and they loved it as well. I also love the shot glass desserts - its really all you need (and if you have two, still no harm done). It is a bit pricey, but we are never disappointed.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally, a restaurant thatFinally, a restaurant that serves reasonable portions, tastefully prepared. We are great fans of True Food but would rate Seasons 52 even higher. I am certain that we will become regular patrons of this restaurant. We had almost given up on eating out as most restaurants serve food that has been processed to death, too much salt, too much sugar. My wife had the boned trout and I had the planked salmon, both were excellent, to die for! The vegetables were crisp, delicious! Ten stars! Our server was excellent!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMJust absolutely delightful.Just absolutely delightful. Celebrated my husband's birthday and will definitely return.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed our PortlandReally enjoyed our Portland waitress. She was very energetic!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first visit, but a greatMy first visit, but a great experience. Our waiter Mark was exceptional; and the food was amazing. We ordered the greek salad and the tomato salad, along with two different vegetarian flatbreads. It was more than we could eat; and all were excellent. Highly recommend - especially if you are headed to the performing arts center. It's close, and the service is efficient.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe environment is nice withoutThe environment is nice without being stuffy. The whole setup is warm and inviting. You could get away with casual attire here, but it's also appropriate for a special occasion. The staff is on the ball, and the food is delicious--from cocktails to appetizers to salads to main courses to desert. There wasn't a single miss.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and a veryExcellent food and a very knowledgeable and attentive waitress (Krista). Service can sometimes be slow but was better on this occasion. Organic Spinach Salad was terrific as was my Pork Tenderloin entrée. My dining companions also raved about the cedar-plank salmon and the scallops. The mini indulgences (desserts) are amazing--just what you need after a big meal, a little bit of sweetness without leaving you feeling stuffed.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
