Diner Reviews
  • "I went there with my girlfriend. I had the rack of lamb and she had the shrimp pasta. The food was great and the service was excellent."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We invited special friends for dinner and drinks and all of us had a wonderful time! The young lady who greeted us when we arrived was very sweet and friendly and our server (Nathan) was terrific! He was very attentive and our dinners were outstanding! It is one of my most favorite restaurants and it is not even close to home for us but, we do not care."

  • "My fiancé, Robert and I had lunch at Seasons 52 this past Saturday, 4/12. Our server Mark S. was extremely knowledgeable of the entire menu and made wonderful recommendations. I had requested through Open Table to please provide the gluten free menu. The requested was followed through upon arrival, and when we were seated Mark made sure that we were given the alternate menu. I was thoroughly impressed. Robert had the market fish and I had the turkey burger. The food was absolutely delicious, full of color and flavor. For desert I had the mango cheesecake and Robert had the cannoli. The desserts were delectable. It hard to believe that everything is under 500 calories! It was remarkable that so much taste cane be packed in so few calories."

  • "We celebrated our Anniversary at your lovely restaurant. Our service was impeccable and food was excellent. We were treated like royalty. I can not wait to come back and try other items on your robust menu."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Both my friend and I totally enjoyed the "freshness" level of the food. It felt like we were actually eating something good for our bodies. In addition, it was my friend's birthday and besides the obligatory candle, she received a birthday card and delicious dessert. Thanks "Seasons 52" for a very enjoyable lunch."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The food is outstanding! We need our selections cooked a bit more but that was not a problem. The food came out perfect and fresh. The bar area is very nice for an intimate dinner with a piano player (also singer) playing music that is fun a light! Thank you!"

  • "Celebrated my daughters birthday at lunch here. Host Matthew was the best. Great Personality and informative about menu. Favorite spot"

  • "Ever since it opened in 2010, Seasons 52 Costa Mesa has been a favorite. Great service, excellent and interesting menu, and the minis ... yum! Love the freshness, variety and presentation of everything that comes out of the kitchen. Just there last week and left looking forward to coming back. Consistently top-notch!"

  • "I had the scallops with pea risotto and asparagus spears. Scallops were done perfectly and delicious. I would prefer larger scallops and less of them, but I like the huge scallops. Asparagus is my favorite veggie, so I was very happy. I don't eat rice so saved the rice for my husband's lunch the next day which he enjoyed. My husband had probably one of the best salmon he has ever had in a restaurant. It was King salmon on a plank. Flakey, tender, and so flavorful!! It was so good I may order the salmon next time even though hard to pass up scallops. His salmon was accompanied by a variety of veggies perfectly cooked. Great, healthy food!"

  • "I treated an employee of mine to lunch, since she took a promotion with another company out of town, and she has been a great employee. The scheduling system was great (had to reschedule) and the ambience great. She ordered the scallops, risotto and asparagus, which she said was delicious. We both ordered the asparagus soup with lemon, which was terrific. However, I ordered the chicken and vegetables, which was good, but nothing out of the ordinary, which is what I expected. It was not very flavorful. Otherwise, we enjoyed the fact that the noise leverl was moderate and the service was very good....but not quite outstanding, like I was expecting....she appreciates fine food, with a degree from Cornell in Hotel Management.... Thanks."

  • "I found Seasons 52 quite by accident a couple of years ago. I am in Costa Mesa a couple of times a year and always eat there. It is a gem! We had the scallops this time and they were fabulous. The presentation and the asparagus and lemon risotto were a great combination to the scallops, which were cooked perfectly. The new butterscotch desert was light and delicious and not too sweet. Whenever the weather is good, the patio is a perfect place to eat. Much less noisy than inside and just delightful when the sun goes down and the lights on all the palm trees light the entrance to that part of South Coast Plaza."

  • "food does not have many options, simply steak (filet mignon), scallop, salmon, nothing special, service is forever, 15 min wait for our food (OMG!!) too slow. would not recommend."

  • "We love dining at Seasons 52 with the varied and delicious menu choices that are never boring! Thanks for delicious and fresh choices!!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "My wife and I tried this place before the Diana Krall show. We were seated promptly and our waitress, Christina, gave us the menu and restaurant low down. We had read a YELP review that the portions were small, I guess that person has an appetite issue. The food was excellent and my wife took home some of the salmon and vegetables. The mini desserts is also a great idea. We will be back to this restaurant."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "My third visit to Seasons 52, and the second time here. Janelle was our server and took great care of us and was very attentive. Food was excellent, as usual, and once again I found it incredible that each entree is only 470 calories. Great food and good for you. Wonderful experience!"

  • "Always a positive experience at Seasons 52, which is why I like to dine there as often as I can afford."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Each time I dine at a Seasons 52 restaurant, I'm always pleased with the quality of the food and the service. Their seasonal menu is interesting and focuses my attention on fresh and seasonal choices. Their additional bonus of preparing the meals in a health conscious and calorie conscious manner is also appreciated. I've had client lunches, business dinners and personal dinners at their restaurants and I'm always happy with their consistency and service. Seasons 52 is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in any city where I am visiting. This is not your average chain!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "It's expensive and the portions are small - if you have a large bank account and a small appetite you'll love this place. But that should be no surprise to this place's fans. In my reservation, I had requested a quieter table. What I got was a table near the entrance to the bar (with live music!) and adjacent to a noisy family with small children. That doesn't show much attention to customers. The place is seemingly always busy, so there's going to be quite a hubbub and the service will be mechanical. And then there are those prices, all a la carte. The trout entree was delicious as was the pork tenderloin, but the wedge with crab meat was dry and boring as are all the flatbread appetizers. Beautiful settings and mood lighting."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "I am always inspired by restaurants that want to encourage fresh ingredients and creative recipes. Seasons 52 wins every time in my book, especially with the gluten free meals!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "This is my "go to" place to meet friends and just hang out. Great food and wine and a cool ambiance. I'm a vegetarian but my friends are not; I can always find something fab on the menu."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "I love Seasons 52. My husband & I enjoyed a special anniversary dinner and had a delicious, healthy meal!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "The food is so well prepared and put together that you forget that it is under 475 calories - the turkey skewers were awesome and will bring me back soon. And of course...the shot glass desserts are the perfect guiltless indulgence!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "This was my second time dining at Seasons 52 although a different location. The food was fantastic and the service was terrific. We had show tickets and they got us in and out in exactly the right amount of time. I just luv the size of the deserts they are the perfect end to the meal. I particularly recommend the pecan pie!! Yum"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "This restaurant is at South Coast Plaza. All was good, except you need to ensure you get a decent table. At first they were going to seat us next to the area where waiters come out of the kitchen. My husband insisted they give us a different table. I asked for a booth and was told "they are all reserved." I didn't know you could reserve one. We were placed at a table near the front of the restaurant which was a mistake. The front door opened and closed every two minutes and a cold wind came in whenever it was opened. Otherwise the place is great."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Cannot loose going here. EVERYTHING is under 500 calories and everything is delicious. the deserts are to die for. they come in shot glasses and it is just the right amount!! EVERY time, I walk away so satisfied, content and not too full, thinking of what I am going to have the next time I am there!"
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Seasons 52 is the perfect spot for any celebration. Enjoy a four course dinner for under 1000 calories including a scrumptious dessert. The service is always impeccable and the menu, which changes seasonally, offers something to appease the pickiest eater. The flatbreads are superb as are all of the salads. Just tell your server you have a play to catch and he/she will make certain you make the curtain."

  • "my title says it all---the food is excellent and the service top-notch!"

  • "The new scallop offering is amazing! Great service and as always,a very fresh tasting menu"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Whatta challenge this menu must be to the kitchen and the wait staff--changing as it does quarterly and weekly! Interesting how Seasons 52 promotes its flatbread and flight of wines during happy hour for a mere $15. I so appreciated the staff's giving us a quiet room for our group. We really enjoyed ourselves before the theater even though we didn't get to try to the amazing dessert options."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We had asked for a quiet table, arrived at 5:45, and were given a table in a small back room, with other small tables. It was very pleasant until they put tables together for a very large group and once they arrived, the noise level was deafening. We would have been better off in the larger room with the "regular" noise level."

  • "Even with a reservation we still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated."

  • "Great service, good food, reasonable prices, and in the company of good friends. Season's 52 never fails to deliver, what one expects of an upscale eatery."

  • "We love Seasons 52! Everything was fabulous as always! Janene made our dining experience even better; we will ask for her next time. Thanks!"

  • "Seasons 52 provided an excellent location for lunch with a friend. Everything about the experience was as nearly good as one could expect; quite environment, great ambiance, professional and attentive service and good food. Note that the food was good but was a little short of excellent; but this is only a minor "nit-pick"."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "I had a reservation. they seated us right outside the kitchen with lots of open tables so we requested to move. our waiter came after awhile, took our order, delivered our food, never checked back until he brought our bill. didn't even offer dessert!!! :( Anyways, I've had good meals there but it was a terrible time on Monday...except for being with my friend. Sorry to complain."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "This continues to be one of our favorite restaurants. We really like all of the vegetarian options"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Our evening was wonderful. The best Lemon drop martini I've had, and plenty of it. Dinner was wonderful (I had the Grilled salmon) and nicely presented. The server got a little behind on bringing the bottle of wine, but that didn't create a big problem. We just lingered over it and had more conversation. And the desserts are the perfect size! Loved everything!"
