Diner Reviews
  • "Our experience was good. Our server was excellent and the food quite good. The girls at the reception desk we felt could use some better training."
    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."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Food is excellent and the perk is that you don't feel guilty eating it. Healthy food and the ability to have a taste of desert at the end which is perfect"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "The flat-iron steak salad was superb. Love the healthy, fresh taste of all of their entrees. Ordered the home-made pickles as a side and they were better than my Grandma's pickles--tangy and crisp."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Always great service and food - either in the bar or in the restaurant."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Nice to have an upscale restaurant that doesn't serve fried food. Looks like most people leave their children at home, though."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I had to change our lunch to a later time (2pm) but the staff were totally accommodating and the service was prompt and helpful. The food was great. We especially liked the seasonal flatbread choice with fresh fig, followed by tasty salad and sandwich from the regular menu."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I have dined at Season's 52 at both South Coast Plaza and Santa Monica many times. I am always amazed that they can keep the calorie count down and their delicious, healthy, fresh entrees. Ordering one of their flatbreads prior to the meal is a must as they are all fabulous. Ditto for the petit desserts served in shot glasses."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We have been to Seasons 52 in Costa Mesa many times. However, this time was the best. We had the best server ever. His name was Habib. It was my birthday, along with the birthdays of two of my friends. We were all given birthday cards and all six of us had our pictures taken and were treated to special desserts. I can't wait to go back there again!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Always excellent. Never disappointed. Enjoyed the always changing menu."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We love the menu with its many changes. There is always a conflict; choosing between several appealing dishes. Sometimes I go with the seasonal specialties, but just as often I opt for a regular favorite such as the cedar planked salmon with fresh veggies. The seating and service is well managed as they juggle a big crowd at both lunch and dinner."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We have dined here many times and always enjoyed it. With a seasonal menu there is always something new to try. The Roasted Tomato pesto Soup was outstanding. The scallops were just perfect. And we always enjoy the desserts presented in shot glasses. The Peach Crumble was so good and just enough. What we appreciate, too, is that lately the wait staff presents a business card so you can request a favorite server. Always a good experience. We brought friends who are " first timers" and they were pleased."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "My rare Rack of Lamb was cooked to perfection and was even more luscious when pared with King Estate Pinot Gris. The wine was a bit unnecessarily over priced. The service was even and well paced."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The food was delicious. Service was excellent. It was our first time dining and we will definitely be back. The person who sealed the deal for our return is server, Brandon D'Amico. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and just overrall really seemed to enjoy what he does and it felt like he wanted to be there. My boyfriend and I thank Brandon for his excellent hospitality. When we return, we will be requesting his section."

  • "We had a great time at Season's 52. The menu was awesome and we love the seasonal changes reflected every few weeks. The strawberry basil martini used a little too much syrup but the cucumber basil smash cocktail was crisp and refreshing. The filet mignon was excellent and the scallops with sweet corn risotto were also great. The flatbreads are a must- have appetizer and the mini desserts are a perfect little treat at the end of the meal."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I've taken many out of town guests to Season's and it's always been a great experience. They have delicious food, great ambiance, and awesome service!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "What more can i ask for. Great atmosphere, great service and a delicious meal without the heavy creams and butter. Finally I can enjoy a meal without regrets about the calories. Will definitely come back for more! And we love the little portion size dessert."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Season's 52 is one of the best concept restaurants. The changing menu with a few staple items makes it a great lunch or dinner restaurant. Aside from the calorie counting, the taste of the dishes could not be better!!!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I took my daughters out for a special evening; Seasons 52 did not dissappoint. The service was outstanding and of course, the food was excellent. I would definitely reccommend Seasons 52."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Excellent food, wonderful service and a fun atmosphere. The Lounge area is fun with the piano and also offers nice seating options. Dining room is comfortable, but still vibrant. Staff is great - especially Rick (the Server) and Harry (the GM)."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Low calorie menu made with the freshest ingredients, and it was delicious (and I don't normally eat that kind of good-for-me stuff). Service was attentive and the atmosphere was nice."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "The food is so good it's hard to believe that each entree is under 475 calories. Knowing that, it makes it easier to enjoy the deserts, which in my opinion are the best part of the experience. Our waiter was great, and the presentation was beautiful. The giant sized forks made it easy to reach across the table and grab a bite off another plate! This was my third time eating here, and I have yet to try anything on the menu that wasn't absolutely delicious. Keep up the good work seasons 52!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Everything was excellent at this place. The food, the service, the drinks and especially the dessert. I hardly ever get dessert, but it's a must at Seasons. Thanks Seasons. We will be back."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food was great & very fresh We really enjoyed the Corn Risitto with our seafood. We had a lovely time even though we were seated outside of path from the kitchen. Our waiter made sure we were done in time to catch the show."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Great service, personable server, and delicious food."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We love this restaurant! We went to the Seasons 54 in Century City to celebrate my daughter's USC graduation and loved it, so we had high hopes for the South Coast Plaza location. We were not disappointed! We had the small lobster tails for appetizers--so delicious and such a great value at $10.95 each. For entrees we had the filet migion and the trout, both served with nice accompaniments. It was the best filet I'd ever remembered having and the trout was excellent also. We both each had one of their mini desserts; a perfect finishing touch. Our waitress, Susan K. was very attentive but not overly so and very friendly and sweet too! We will be back!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The restaurant was packed and very noisy but we were soon used to it. Everyone was going to see Jersey Boys at the Segerstrom Center. Our waitress was a doll, our food so delicious, interesting wine list and our 12 yr. old granddaughter loved it. The desserts were so cute and delicious. We were out the door in plenty of time to make the performance in spite of the crowd. A hit with us on stage and off."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "I have now dined at Seasons 52 several times as this particular location is near the performing arts center. It consistently has had excellent food, excellent service- we are never disappointed. We bring different people every time and they all love it!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Reservation was easy, seated right on time, very friendly hostess who gave us a warm welcome. Waitress was outstanding (Lizette, I believe). She was very knowledgeable and described our options with enthusiasm and class. Food was very good (pork loin), with side dishes tomato/avocado salad and roasted corn w/ bacon. Yummy! We'll be back!!"
    Dined on 7/8/2014

  • "House made pickles made me want to learn how to make these at home! Full of flavor and the perfect texture!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Seasons 52 changes their menu 4 times a year, with the seasons, and everything on the menu is 475 calories or less. My fiancé didn't think he'd get filled up, but on the shrimp/pasta dish plus a couple of pieces of my appetizer flatbread, he was. I love the ambience of the place and there's a lot of outdoor/patio seating, if you don't want to be confined to the inside. The service was a little slow, but I wasn't in a rush to leave, so it didn't bother me too much."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Great food, attentive staff and a very nice place to dine. The menu is seasonal and offers a wide array of choices. Most dishes are fire-grilled and are purchased locally. Looking forward to returning again."

  • "My boyfriend took me here for my birthday dinner because he dined with you before at lunch and loved it! It was such a great experience, our server Erika was so sweet and helpful! I never received a birthday card from a restaurant before and it was such a nice gesture to offer both of us complimentary desserts as well. Atmosphere is great, food delicious (I can't believe our dishes were under 425 calories each!), and exceptional service! We will definitely be back!!"
