    I'd never been to Seasons 52 before so I decided to give it a try. The atmosphere and restaurant service were quite good. It was appropriate for my wife and I to have a quiet dinner. But, for what I expected to be fine dining, I was a bit disappointed. The butternut squash soup was quite vinegary - as was the goat cheese appetizer. I'm not usually that picky but neither my wife or I finished them. The entree I had was good but not extraordinary. The entertainer was excellent. The best bottle of red they had was Silver Oak 2009, which is good, but I'd hoped for something a little off the beaten path. Over all - maybe I'll be back, but it was something I'm telling my friends about.

    Took my niece for her birthday celebration. Was reluctant as my husband does not like 'trendy' restaurants and is on a diet. Was surprised when he said he cannot wait to go back to Seasons 52. We loved the food and the portions were more than we expected. I can't wait to go back either.

    We went to Seasons 52 for my husbands birthday. The food was fantastic. The service was as well. The atmosphere was great. The only complaint I have is that the wine was poured a little short. I work in the restaurant industry, so I am well aware of industry standards. I felt I was shorted with every pour and I had 3 glasses of wine. Next time I would just order a bottle. You can always cork it and bring it home if you don't finish it.

    I was truly surprised when the waiter came up to me and said my name and then wished my guest a Happy Birthday. It started off our afternoon in a positive way. The rest of the visit there was just as amazing from the food to the service to the cleanliness. I was pleasantly surprised and will be returning. Exceptional exceptional exceptional !!!

    I have taken a couple of work groups to the Oak Brook Seasons 52 a few times now when in town and each time everyone says how great their meal is. The service is awesome as well. Would highly recommend this restaurant. BTW, my group had several folks from Europe who also loved their meal selections.

    It was our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We had eaten at Seasons 52 8 times before, both in Illinois and in Florida. The chef uses fresh ingredients and the entrees are noted to have less than 400 calories, but honestly, you would never know..... I noted it was our Anniversary and the establishment greeted us with "Happy Anniversary" and we each had a card waiting at our table. Dinner was exquisite, as usual. The wine flight with flatbread is a great deal and yummy! They also comped us 2 desserts which was very thoughtful. Just the evening I had planned and would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion and ANYTIME!

    As always, I enjoyed the offerings at Seasons 52, since I watch my weight. My sister and I each ordered a spinach salad with roasted pears and walnuts. Then, we split an order of the stuffed mushrooms, and finished with a mini-indulgence each. I had the apple pie and I tasted her lemon with blueberries. All of the food was great,

    We have eaten here a few times for a special occasion and had a good experience with service and the food. This visit was different. Even though I was assured a special request would be honored, it was not. They did accommodate but why bother to request if not honored? Service was spotty but it looked like they were short handed. Food was delicious

    Food was excellent! We ordered their tuna tartar for an appetizer. The tuna, mango and avocado layered together was perfect. I ordered the cedar-plank roasted salmon and my date ordered the chefs seasonal seafood special. Both were flavorful and cooked perfectly. Everything was really good except for the service. Our server made us feel as if we were eating at Red Lobster. She rushed us every chance she could. Once our main courses were brought to the table....she left our appetizer plates and dish on the table until we were done with our main course. We never had our waters refilled. And, at the end...she rushed us with the check. If it were not for the service, it would have been a great experience.

    Seasons is the perfect place for our girlfriend gabfests! The menu choices are unique and the food is excellent. The Fall menu mushroom flatbread was outstanding and we were pleasantly surprised to see that the lightly crusted mozzarella topped green tomatoes for a great flavor. This was my first time being seated in the restaurant area which is a little noisier than sitting in the bar section. Staff is friendly and ready to serve. Wine list is extensive.

    Love the concept of each dish 475 calories or less. Don't let the lie calorie count fool you. The portions are satisfying. Grilled items were all cooked just right. Only complete wets the 2 mushroom appetizers( stuffed with shrimp & mushroom trip flatbread). Mushrooms were too mushy & did not hold stuffing. Mushrooms on flatbread were on huge chunks making it very difficult to eat. The much rooms used also had too much moisture and prevented flatbread from staying crisp. Smaller variety of mushrooms like shiitake and oyster would have been better. Service was friendly but too slow for lunch. Great wine list, but if you are going back to work or don't drink alcohol beverage choices are not great. Iced & hot tea are all too weak.

    Had the sea scallops and butternut squash risotto and it was very tasty and you get a lot of scallops - I couldn't even finish them! Desserts are always great and the two best were definite the raspberry chocolate chip cannoli and the mocha mousse. Great meal and even my father-in-law who can put away a lot felt that his half chicken was a good size meal. Would go again.

    My wife and I had a wonderful experience for our anniversary, enjoying a wonderful meal, excellent service (thanks Liv)and wonderful atmosphere. I would highly recommend this Seasons 52 for a nice romantic evening meal. If this is what you want, request a table in the back. The front dining area is a little loud which is where they tend to put larger parties and families with small children.

    This is a noisy spot, but it's "happy noise" and not much to be done about it. I did mention that we were having a birthday celebration on our reservation "special event" request, but I don't think that would have been noted had I not mentioned it to our waitress. However, she did return the birthday candles that I gave to her, and mentioned that the restaurant had used their own.
