Seasons 52 - Costa Mesa
Great Place to eat!Great place to meet with friends, fabulous food, perfect wines, excellent service, and wonderful atmosphere. Great place for a company dinner too! Used it many times and the group raves about the food and service being perfect.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second visit toThis was my second visit to your restaurant and both times totally loved the food and service. i would and will recommend you to my friends and family. The only drawback was one of your guests had a crying baby who dented the ambiance a little for me. I don't really think babies should be encouraged to come. This one was unhappy for pretty much the whole time we were there. Other than that our experience was wonderful. Service fantastic! Cudos to the chef and the owners...6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMServer, John, was wonderful!

Attendees, Kim and Kim D. were great as well!

Sergio rocked the service Tuesday night!!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been here several timesI have been here several times and have REALLY enjoyed the food. The service is usually exceptional....but this time the waiter was a little less knowledgable about their menu than I was! BUT, he did fess up to it and was very appologetic! He even gave us desserts on the house, so I guess it is a wash...he was trying!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantMy wife and I always enjoy dining here at the Seasons 52. The service is excellent and the food is great especially the flat breads. A person could make a meal out of those alone. The menu has a very good selection with something for everyone.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBIrthday celebrationI chose to celebrate my birthday at Seasons 52. We weren't sure what to expect but our entire group was thrilled with the food. I was especially impressed with the celebration tower which was brought out for our enjoyment, with the desserts on the house. Food was delicious, service was fabulous and we will definitely go back.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceThe cedar plank salmon was absolutely fabulous! Our server, Parker, was very attentive and professional. Thanks for a great dining experience!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMfab server :)Food was wonderful, as usual. Fabulous server, Annie.......Fun personality, terrific service......Will ask for her next time :)6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place for a meal w/friendsMy friend and I had lunch at Seasons 52 in Costa Mesa again and it was delightful. The service was excellent and attentive but not cloying. Our order was taken and food was served in a reasonable time frame. We love the barbecue chicken salad though we found its recipe had changed since our last visit. Nothing to die over but we were a bit disappointed. The server explained that the chicken had been put on skewers to accelerate the service speed during a busy lunch hour. Okay, we got that.
The desserts were tempting and we both caved.
The bill was reasonable and though we lingered over lunch for about 1.5 hours, they never rushed us out.
All in all another lovely experience.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat and healthy dining!Seasons 52 is one of my favorite restaurants that I frequent regularly. Being health conscious, I love their lower calorie, healthful approach to restaurant dining. My favorite dish is the vegetarian tasting platter, which is like a mini-buffet on one plate, which includes a citrus quinoa salad, a taco, a stuffed chile, grilled tofu, and other vegetables, depending on the season. I love that they will always accommodate any changes or substitutions. For instance, yesterday I asked for sautéed spinach rather than the snap peas.
Don't miss out on the flatbread wine tasting special every day before 6:00 -- what a bargain -- and fun to try the different wines.
Comfy booths, too.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is lovely.This restaurant is lovely. The service was excellent., attentive and non-intrusive. I will definitively return to sample more dishes as the seasons change.
The food was fresh, presented well and delightful. I appreciated the vegetable choices and the small dishes selections. The deserts were a feast for the eyes and mouth with portions sized- just right, so as to not induce a sugar coma.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable Anniversary LunchThis was our first time dining at this restaurant and for our 15th Anniversay lunch date it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. They gave us a souvenir picture which was a really nice touch. Looking forward to planning another lunch date soon.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMeat wellThe food was attractively presented and tasted very good. I like salt, and my lamb chops were too salty. Also, I would have liked a tiny sharp knife to cut the lamb away from the bone. These were such little lamb chops.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday TimeI was celebrating my birthday with friends and we had a wonderful dining experience. This was the second time I had been to Season's 52 and I am definitely ready to go back again. Our server was very attentive and the food presentation was absolutely awesome. I don't know what could have made our dining experience any better.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh and deliciousTraveling for work usually means heavy meals. Fortunately, a friend recommended that we try Seasons 52 - noting their seasonable menu and never-disappointing food. I was skeptical when I heard that everything was under 475 calories. Even though I make light meals at home, I imagined eating out with those restrictions would mean tiny portions. I was wrong. My dinner was filling, satisfying, and delicious all-around. I couldn't have been more pleased!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent healthy foodEach friend I've introduced to Seasons has loved the healthy delicious food and good ambiance. This is how food should be made everywhere: lots of flavor without the overload of calories. Many of the drinks and entrees are all natural which makes me feel good about what I'm eating. I just wish there were more gluten free and non GMO options.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing ExperienceThis was the first time I had come to this restaurant. It's super close to my home and I've always wanted to try it. It was absolutley fabulous! All the food is 475 calories or less and who would believe that a chicken pesto flatbread was less than that? The strawberry infused vodka is a perfectly refreshing in their martinis and the piano player at the bar is fantastic. Anybody who loves a good ambiance, good food and great music will love this place. And, it was not as highly priced as I thought it would be!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentWe have never been disappointed dining at Seasons 52! The food is good, and the service is always excellent!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great TimeWe had a wonderful time at Seasons 52! We sat in the lounge area where there was live music by a singer/piano player. We really enjoyed the atmosphere plus the food was very tasty and healthy!! We can't wait to go back!!! :)5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, desserts are variedGreat food, desserts are varied and unique as they are just the perfect portion. We came away from our dinner feeling satisfied but not stuffed.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good business lunch spot.Took a client to lunch here. Great innovative, healthy menu with a large variety of choices starting at moderate prices up to expensive a la carte entrees. Fun small desserts. Ladies will especially appreciate the calorie conscious menu. Upscale environment. Easy parking and access at South Coast Plaza with it's own entrance from the parking lot. Valet parking also available.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Seasons 52. Alison wasLove Seasons 52. Alison was constantly on top of things. She was so friendly and courteous.The scallops were cooked perfectly, the trout dinner was delicious, the shrimp & crab stuffed mushrooms were the perfect combination and I'm not particularly a mushroom fan. Finally, the mini indulgences were awesome. Just the right amount after dinner, but who can stop at just 1? The red velvet and machiatto mini's were the best! I love sitting on the patio with the fountain and fireplace. Only draw back is all the cars driving past coming into the mall. Unfortunately, the restaurant sits on the entrance path into SCP. But nevertheless, I will definitely be back!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent 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 AMNot so good dayThe lamb gyro flatbread was fabulous! But I should have tried the curried halibut, which my server highly recommended. I was disappointed with the prawns and penne pasta. Everything else was up to the standards I've come to expect of this, one of my favorite restaurants--especially the dessert shots!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 AMGreat Night OutWe have made my birthday celebration an annual tradition at Seasons 52 and so far we have not been disappointed! My friends and I always enjoy a fabulous drink - I recommend the Hawaiian Pineapple Cosmopolitan - and the specials are always great. Be sure to order an appetizer. The Flatbreads are tasty but my heart is with Lump crab, shrimp and spinach stuffed mushrooms. Finally, don't skip dessert! We went on May 20th and our server was Anne, she was super sweet and very helpful.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love the changing menuWe love the changing menu and the vegetarian friendly choices5/19/2013 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 AMHealthy and FreshYou'll find very tasty, fresh and healthy food at this restaurant. No heavy sauces, no butter, just the natural flavor or excellent food.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 AM
