  • "FRIENDLY SERVICE AND ENERGETIC AMBIENCE, THE SHOW COOKING GIVES A WARM AND DYNAMIC TOUCH, AND OVER ALL, DELIGHTFUL FOOD"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I met at Seasons over the weekend and had a wonderful lunch. The food was delicious and the service was great. We've had this waitress before and she was attentive and had a great attitude. Great dining experience."

  • "it's a fabulous deal all around town! 5 courses for $32....and all of them are full portions! Our server was on his A-game! I loved him!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Excellent food & service; only drawback is the high noise level."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "The menu is vey special with seasonal foods. Our most recent dining was on the summer menu. Very fresh and unique salads and vegetables. The flatbreads are terrific! The meats are cooked to perfection and are enhanced (not covered over) by delicious sauces or light toppings. Don't get me stated on desserts … a wonderful selection. Service is top-notch. We thoroughly enjoyed our waiter who introduced himself to us using our name (nice touch). Felt like the service was just for our table even though we were there on a busy weekday evening. Can't go wrong here any time."

  • "Can't get enough of this great place. Love the ambience and service, but it's the healthy, fresh, delicious and creative food that keeps me coming back for more."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "This is where I take my guests on special occasions. The service is extraordinary. The food is delicious. And the calories are limited. (You get plenty of food in spite of the calorie limitation.) I highly recommend Seasons 52."

  • "This was our third visit to a Seasons 52 restaurant, and we'll keep coming back for the food which is always beautiful presented and delicious to eat. My spouse particularly likes the mini-desserts. The problem on this particular visit was the noise level which was reaching deafening proportions when we arrived at 12:30pm. I had particularly requested a quiet corner so we could chat more easily with our friends. We were given a table in the midst of the crowd. Our server quickly noticed my disappointment and found us another table in a side room where it was a bit quieter. She agreed that the noise level was usually bad for the hour we had chosen, so next time we'll try 1:30pm instead. It was pleasantly quiet at the time we left."

  • "Fun Girls Birthday Lunch! Wonderful entree Salads on the Menu. I ordered the Flat-Iron Steak Salad. Nice presentation and my steak was prepared to my liking."

  • "We were very happy with our entire dinner-the service was excellent-Tahnee was very helpful and just a very nice person"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We came here for dinner before a show at the Segerstrom Center. The focus of the restaurant is on the freshest ingredients and this month corn is the star. We started with the lobster and mozarella flatbread which was quite good, then I had the Maui Ahi salad and my husband had the scallops with corn risotto and steamed vegetables, both very good. But the standout of the meal was the skillet of corn. The fresh roasted corn was super-sweet and the carmelized onions and parmesan cheese were perfect complements. We didn't have time to try the desserts (sadly) but would allow additional time for that on our next visit because they looked yummy."

  • "A great place for good friends to catch up and not be rushed. Lovely experience and great food"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Seasons 52 is our go-to restaurant when we are looking for great food and great service. Portion size keeps you from over endulging and you arrive home comfortable after enjoying a great evening out."

  • "We celebrated my daughter's birthday and my other daughter's 10th wedding anniversary at Seasons 52 and had a wonderful experience. The waitress was extremely attentive and brought us complimentary champaign for all 5 of us. The food was served quickly after ordering it but we did not feel rushed. The food was excellent, two of us ordered scallops and they were tender and flavorful. My wife had the trout and it was very tasty and well prepared. The whole trout was served, the correct way to do it. Some restaurants give you a half a trout. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "We've been going to Seasons 52 on a fairly regular basis before shows at Segerstrom- typically , it's a great experience. This time; however, not so great. Salads were delivered , entrees were delivered about 60 seconds later, I even commented that we had just gotten our salads and the waiter apologized- but did nothing about it. To top it off, the food was cold- even though it had been rushed out of the kitchen- We may just stick to Anqi from now on at South Coast Mall."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Reservation honored but not punctually! Back room was beyond, to use Open Table's inimitable phrase, energetic. A wonderful server calmed us with wine flights and flatbreads. Doesn't it seem logical that guests who ask for a place away from the piano bar DO NOT want to hear the singer and his music? Seasonal menu seemed good as usual, but we were surprised to see the calorie counts are moving upward. Why is that necessary?"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "We have been here many times for lunch and it has not gotten better with age. The flatbread was tepid when it arrived at the table, the noise level is impossible if you want to have a conversation, the food is nothing to rave about...just not a great experience and doesn't make you want to rush back. The best part is the tiny desserts. The seating in the bar is much more intimate and less noisy. If you are going here, make sure you ask for a booth in the bar."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Always enjoy the tiny desserts, and the changing menu"

  • "Food is good and the service was great. Love the drinks too ~!! It's a very pretty restaurant and I like the location. Right next to the Valet."

  • "I can always count on Seasons 52 for a lo-cal, delish meal. Great ambiance and service, too."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "The food is always very good but I'm most impressed with the service. From the time I walk through the door I feel very well taken care of."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "The menu is always so compelling and the food is fresh and delicious. The ambience is warm and cozy, yet elegant and vibrant all at the same time. I love this place."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "I have dined at Seasons 52 on numerous occasions and only one guest was disappointed in their meal, everyone else loved the whole experience and have returned with their friends and colleagues. We will definitely be back in the near future!!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Our waitress asked if we had any time constraints right off and kept our experience fun and on time. Our waitress was animated and sweet. She excited us about the salmon salad and it DiD'NT disappoint. The salad was fresh and the application of the dressing perfection! I can't say enough of the amazing food! I can't wait to return for dinner!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "I have eaten here a few times. The staff is almost always helpful and friendly, and the menu selection is fairly large for the restaurant's style. They concentrate on low calorie, good flavor, and fresh seasonal dishes, and will assist with wine pairings if requested. The menu lists and explains several cocktails and beers, as well, if wine is not your preference. They also have a gluten free menu and are willing to make accommodations for other dietary restrictions. The atmosphere is semi-open with low lighting, creating an illusion of privacy, with live piano and singing played over speakers. It's a wonderful place for date night, private celebration, or an intimate evening. (Valet parking is also validated.)"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "I've been here four times. Half the time the dishes I've orders have been tasty, well executed, and interesting. This last time epitomizes what happens the other half of the time: plates overloaded with an item not featured on the menu (red peppers much?) and proteins significantly under seasoned. My fish was dry and my husband's lamb was bland. He actually said it could have been any meat. The service is lovely but the noise level and music is quite loud so don't go expecting conversation. It's a novelty restaurant but needs to be consistently tasty for me to shell out that much cash."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "My wife and I have eaten here on a number of occasions and have enjoyed it each and every time. This is a really good restaurant to patronize. I would highly recommend it."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "The service is nice, the food is good and under 475 calories. The desserts are small and the perfect size. You must try the dessert!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We took friends here for a thank you dinner and made a good choice. The service was excellent, and we enjoyed the friendliness of our server. The felet migon and flat bread were quite special. So glad they took reservations as there was already a 1 1/2 - 2 hour wait at 6 PM. Great wine list, but I think $9.25 for a well vodka and cranberry was a bit steep!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The staff were friendly and personable. The food was delicious and healthy. The wine was reasonably priced and great selection. Our server, James, was attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu."

  • "The food is beautiful, healthy, satisfying, and just so delicious. Our waitress, Christina, at the South Coast Plaza Seasons made us feel as if we were royalty. I hope to make this our entire family's new go to place to dine for healthy lunches, dinners, and celebrations. The wine list by the glass (52 selections) is out of this world, the most extensive array I have ever encountered. Check out their wine flight and appetizer special, what a deal, what a fun way to try something new."

  • "I arrived at the restaurant first. My reservation was found and I was seated. I was told that as soon as my guest (a client) arrived they would bring him to the table. I waited 30 minutes, called my client, and then assumed that he had a conflict. I then walked up front where he had been waiting for me the entire time. Apparently the hostess lost our reservation in the system. I asked to speak to the manager. When she came back to my table, after the second request, she was quite flip. Very disappointing. It is a shame that such a nice place has absolutely no idea as to how to defuse a bad situation."

    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Though VERY loud, the food and service is very good. My salmon was 'slightly' undercooked, but some would prefer it that way. The sides were excellent and unique, and the service top flight. Once my ears had adjusted to the ambiance, I was able to have 'reasonable' conversation with my wife, son, and his girlfriend at the table."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "When the server told me that every entree was under 475 calories, I expected portions to be miniature. I'm happy to be wrong! The portions were just right. In fact, I indulged in a three course meal that didn't leave me needing a nap after. My steak was well prepared and the veggies were the best of summer's harvest. I highly recommend the mango jalapeno crush cocktail and the meyer lemon pound cake for dessert."
