  • Perfect Anniversary Celebration
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Seasson 52 was the perfect location for our 18th anniversary dinner and exceeded our expectations. We arrived early and sat at the bar to listen to the pianist - he was very talented and it was a great way to start our evening. We were given a very special anniversary card along with complimentary champagne. What a treat! We tried the sushi appetizer which was presented very nicely and tasted wonderful. We shared a Greek salad and had the filet and cedar plank salmon. Both were excellent. We can't remember the last time we had a steak that good! And the salmon was cooked to perfection. The night ended with the tiny desserts and another glass of champagne. Perfect evening.

    This was our first visit to Seasons 52. The entire dining experience, from the moment we arrived, through the final bites of dessert, was wonderful. Our server was personable, friendly and had very detailed knowledge of the various menu items we asked about. The presentation of the food was marvelous, exceeded only by the taste. My lamb chops were expertly prepared: moist, tender and flavorful. Others at the table raved about their entrees: Stuffed Quail and Swordfish (both from the seasonal specials' list). The menu items and wine list offer many selections at reasonable prices. I highly recommend Seasons 52 and look forward to dining there again soon.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    My wife and I were looking for a place to dine in the Kansas City Country Club Plaza area, and employees in several shops in the district recommended Seasons 52 as being a place offering local, fresh foods. We sat in the piano bar area (at a table near a window with a great view of the Plaza) and thoroughly enjoyed dinner. The waitress (Rachel A) suggested a perfect wine to accompany our seafood dishes. The perch was delicious, my wife's scallops incredible. Overall a very, very lovely dining experience.

    My husband and I just went to Seasons 52 for the first time this weekend to celebrate our 2nd year anniversary. We had a great table tucked away and it felt very romantic! Our server, Carly, was one of the best ice had. She helped me in my wine and food choice and did not disappoint! The restaurant had a great atmosphere and was very clean. Plus our appetizers, entrees and desserts came out fast! We will go back

    The only portion of the meal worth eating was the appetizer. Seated in front of the kitchen, rushed service when we had told the server we would like to take our time. Crunchy risotto, under cooked butternut squash, a filet that looked like a hanger steak. Since when did organic and locally sourced become tasteless and poorly prepared.

  • Vegan in BBQ City

    Dined on 9/22/2014
    Business meetings during meals? I knew that, as a fairly new vegan, this might be a challenge in BBQ City. The menu here was definitely vegetarian-friendly and I figured out, in advance, how I could make it work. I asked our server, Francis (who needs to be cloned globally), if this dish could be made without cheese or if that dish could be made without butter. I thought his reaction might have been "Oh, great, I have one of those people to deal with tonight." He gave me a nearly deadpan look, answered "yes" to my questions, and then turned on his heels. In a minute, he returned with the vegan menu. I sighed...all my good deeds today have paid off in spades. My meal was perfect...I could live here!

    I am never disappointed when I dine at this restaurant. Usually I stick with locally owned places but Seasons 52 food is so fresh, so tasty and seasonal, prices are reasonable--that I go back often. Service is always good as well. We dined for our anniversary and--surprise, rec'd a complimentary glass of champagne AND a free dessert! Was not expecting that--it was a nice touch.

    All in all a great experience. One suggestion....I'd made reservations for 9pm and called at 4pm to have a bottle of Spy Valley Wine chilled at our table when we arrived. Abby on the phone said they could do this; however, when we arrived the was no Chilled bottle of wine and they had run out...

    A very busy place because of the Plaza Art Fair, we had an 8:45pm reservation, got seated around 9:10pm, but that was ok, waited in the bar and had a drink! Our waitress was great and very nice. The food came out in a timely fashion and was worth the wait! I would highly recommend Seasons 52 to all!

    I usually have remarkable service from Seasons which is why I stop in whenever I'm in town. However, this past Saturday (9/20) I witnessed some of the worst customer service skills from a hostess. When I arrived at the restaurant there was another couple in front of us waiting to be helped at the hostess stand. After standing there and watching the other hostess's come up and ask questions and run off and she would look in the computer and make a note, not once in 5 minutes did she ever make eye contact or acknowledge the growing line of people standing directly in front of her. I looked behind me and the line was out the door. A hostess that can't multi-task should not be in charge of running the front desk.

    I brought clients and a couple of executives from my company to dinner, and it was a perfect setting for good conversation. The food was amazing. The seasonal options are a delight and the wine list is fantastic; we shared three bottles! The service we received is unmatched on the Plaza, really excellent. I've always enjoyed Seasons 52 personally, but found it to be also ideal for business. Thanks so much to the staff!

    Brought incorrect appetizer, then brought stuffed mushrooms without crab meat and a human hair in one with no explanation why they left out crab meat. Caesar was saturated with dressing. Bartender was screaming over the lovely singer and bartender was inches away from customer. Very unprofessional and the waiter and bartender weren't polished at all.

    We ate here on a Friday night. We started with the featured soup, a butternut squash, because it was cold and rainy outside and soup sounded good. We were offered a sample which prompted us to each order it. Delicious. We both had items off the featured menu, branzino and swordfish. Everything was well-prepared and very flavorful. We had a couple of glasses of wine off their extensive by-the-glass listing and treated ourselves to a couple of dessert shots. I love the small size. You get a nice little dessert to finish the meal but you don't have to commit to a week of it. Professional service, valet parking, lovely interior, all combine with the food for a great experience.

    We specifically asked for a quiet table. When we were only one of two parties in an empty room, they sat the other party right next to us. We had been waiting 10 minutes for the server at this time. As soon as the other party was seated, they were wished a happy birthday and were immediately attended by the server. We chose to leave the restaurant without further ado.

    There were five of us celebrating a birthday dinner. I had never been to Seasons 52, but it was one of those happy accidental choices. The food was great. I had heard the portion sizes were small, but that certainly didn't prove to be true. The flatbreads were good, my rack of lamb was perfect. Great dessert shooters. The atmosphere was very pleasant. One of the people dining with me thought it was one of the nicer places we had dined in K.C. It is subdued and uncluttered. The most outstanding part of the evening was our waitress. I am sorry, but I just can't think of her name. It was so refreshing to have someone that professional. Not once was, "how's everything tasting guys?" ever uttered.
