Seasons 52 - Oak Brook
Excellent seasonal menu...theExcellent seasonal menu...the mini desserts are fun!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, loud barAs always, I enjoy the wonderful food at Seasons 52. However, the singer in the bar was a bit loud, so much that it made it difficult to hear my dining companion. Also, it seems as if the poor man sang every song known to man in one continuous stream. It was a bit lounge-singer-like to me.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMeal with FriendsWe met good friends for a late lunch. Food, excellent. Atmosphere, pleasant. A bit noisy when we sat down, but became fine for our conversation level. Service, pleasant and proficient. Easy access for parking.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAre you sure?It's hard to believe when they deliver the food, that these large, wonderfully looking and tasting dishes are 475 calories or less. The servers make sure they note the name on the reservations and any special occasion. They are ready to serve without being obtrusive. Great location - easy to get to in the mall. Have to remember to keep this one on the list.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA very interesting concept.A very interesting concept.

We had a great evening! I'll be back!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Service!We had such a wonderful night out with Tasha as our server. She was so welcoming, patient and pleasant. Such a nice experience.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBelated Mother's Day Treat. . .We took my elderly parernts there for a late Mother's Day treat and what a treat it was. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing and left us to chit chat before dinner. Strawberry infused martini was delicious, the stuffed mushrooms were perfect and the salmon and scallops (my wife and I split) were wonderful. Loved the dessert - perfect individual size glasses - great choices.
We didn't stay for the piano singer in the bar but will go back to do that as well. We would highly recommend this restaurant.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMhealthy and delish!Everything was wonderful, the kale caesar salad was awesome!

Seasons 52 has become my favorite "go-to" restaurant of all time!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMClass of 55Our group of 8-13 gets together once a month for lunch. This was my month to choose the restaurant. My daughter and her family recommended you to me and I, along with my friends join in your group of fans. The food was delicious-lots of menu choices. The service was wonderful also we will definitely be back.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThough we were initially seatedThough we were initially seated in the bar area for dinner, we asked to be seated in the dining room because of distracting lounge singer/piano player.
Our server could not have been more gracious in getting us immediately re-seated, though she was losing our table service.
The gesture was much appreciated.
Dinner was first-rate from lamb chop appetizers to perfectly-cooked filet and wonderfully fresh lobster/shrimp spring rolls.
We usually forgo dessert but something told us to consider it at Seasons 52...We were delighted with the array of small but very rich desserts presented in glasses - a perfect ending with espresso/cappuccino to a special-occasion meal!
Highly recommend Seasons 52 with 1 minor suggestion - skip the lounge act.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA big improvement on suitableA big improvement on suitable portion sizes - just right not overbearing. Special attention was paid to seasonal fresh selections, all healthy choices.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHealthy eating never tasted so goodLove everything about this restaurant, the food, wine selection and the relaxing ambience of dinning.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded ExpectationsSecond time at Seasons 52. I dine out frequently due to business. The entire experience with my family was excellent. Food was prepared and presented wonderfully. The portions were ideal for my wife and me. The service was attentive. We will return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious but a little slowMy party of 4 went for dinner on Mother's Day. We were seated within a couple of minutes of our reservation time, so the staff does an excellent job of managing reservations. The food was all very good, the server was very helpful, and the portions were just the right size. It was our first visit, so I don't know if the service is usually so slow with big gaps between courses or if it was because it was Mother's Day and the staff was overwhelmed. We are not the type to linger for 3 hours for dinner, so it kind of detracted from the experience. I would be willing to try it again though because the food was so good. Be prepared to spend at least 2 hours there.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, even on a busy Mother's Day!Great quality of food and service even on a packed Mother's Day lunchtime. Never disappointing. Fresh produce nicely prepared and well presented. Service also really good - attentive without being obtrusive.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways PerfectPerfect service and food every time we go here. They have locations all over the us. We've also been to the LA location. Just a great experience. I am a vegetarian and the sampler is great. They also have a gluten free and vegan menu.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had no complaints aboutWe had no complaints about this restaurant. It was great! We celebrated a birthday and we asked the waitress to take our picture. When she presented us the bill, she also presented us with (3) photographs, one for each of us, all of which were in a nice photo folder. That was great! Something to remember! The food, ambiance and waitress were all excellent.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHad only been there once before.Had only been there once before. Steak and Scallps were excellent. Desert is divine and just the right size.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTastes great *** NOT FILLING! ***First the food tasted excellent - with Supermodel portions. The lamb steaks were the size of 3, 2 inch scallops including the t bone. It was accompanied by a 3oz Dixie cup size portion of excellent mashed potato's, and maybe 4 stalks of asparagus. Seriously??? The atmosphere was fantastic with the pianist in the background at the bar. However we went to a movie afterwards and I was so starving that I ate 2 hotdogs. I had to sneak out of the film so as not to embarrass the host who paid for dinner. Seasons 52 should really be ashamed of themselves for calling this a meal. This was a special occasion and if we weren't so happy to be together and having 2 glasses of wine it would have been a disaster.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice twist on American faire-1st time at Season's 52 Oakbrook. Menu is a lighter version of typical American/Steakhouse menus. Most everything is grilled, their Flatbread apps are truly Flatbreads (which I like), ours was grilled shrimp, chopped tomato, cilantro, and a vinaigrette drizzled over the top. Light and very flavorful. Unique drinks at the bar. Portion sizes are normal (many light faire rests have kids sized entree's). My wife had a mixed grilled veggies that was tasty, I had a 10 oz filet that was top 10 I had ever had. Entree prices very reasonable ($18-$26). Service/staff was great , it was a busy night but staff had no issues. Part of the Darden Group-normally not a good thing, but if you like grilled, leans meats, and lots of veggies, go try it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, great environment,eWonderful food, great environment,excellent customer service! My husband and I visisited the restaurant for the first time to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. I put in a special request for a quiet area with a special dessert and the staff had everything planned on ahead of time and ready when we got there. Very impressed and will def. be returning and recommending to friends and family.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceEmily was our server (oakbrook location) . And she was fabulous. The service and food never disappoint!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Great!Seasons 52 never disappoints ~~ great ambiance; interesting menu; attentive and courteous service; tasty food; and, with their calorie conscious, healthy cooking you can leave there feeling good about your meal out.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSolidBeen to Seasons 52 in Oakbrook about 4 times now. They have always done a nice job. Last night I had a reservations for 8 at 6:30 pm and half of my party ended up not being able to come. So 4 of us showed up at the restaurant at 5:30. Explained our situation and we were immediately seated and treated well all evening. Many restaurants would have been put out with us, the folks at Seasons 52 were nothing but accommodating. I will return when in town on business.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant Menu, Upscale AtmosphereDynamic menu changes on a seasonal basis, specials change weekly. I've been there several times with family, work, and just by myself - wait staff is always spectacular. Make the trip - everything about this restaurant is wonderful. If their are any vegetarians in your circle - this is the perfect place. Several options and all are tasty.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGenius!The idea of a restaurant makings a name for themselves by a low calorie count in their entrees is genius! I love that I can clean my plate and know I haven't broke the 'calorie bank'. The food is just awesome! I LOVE the piano music. Great touch...
Our server was ironically a trainer... She seems very fake with the questions she ask... And gave the vibe that she didn't want any responses other than the general 'everything is great'. She was never rude... Maybe overwhelmed that evening. The food and drinks completely outweighed the phony customer service. Can't wait to be back!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodLots of choices and all under 475 calories/ how can you beat that?5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food and conceptHuman potions of food using seasonal ingredients to perk up flavor instead of fats, salt, and sugar. The result is food with multi-layered flavor. We had strip steak, filet mignon, trout and our forth guest had a vegetarian feast. Meats were tasty and cooked as ordered. Trout was phenomenal. Roasted eggplant and parmesan flatbread appetizer was flavorful and light. Quinoa "salad" was amazing. It is a combination of quinoa, apples, oranges, cranberries, baby basil and other crunchy greens. When my friend asked about vegetarian options, the waitress brought her a whole vegetarian menu. Far more options than typically available to vegetarians. Many options were a also vegan. Will definitely go there again! Only detractor, it was REALLY LOUD!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI like the concept and thoughtI like the concept and thought it was well executed. Food was delicious, fresh-tasting and well presented. I definitiely would recomment and plan on going there again.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Service & Value!Karen R. was our server and she did a superb job! She helped us with our wine selection as well as made great recommendations for the food we selected. The food was extremely good & the small desert selections were a perfect way to cap off a beautiful dining experience! We will be back!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfulOur dining experience was delightful in every way....from our delightful server who enhanced our dining experience with her professionalism and timing to the quality of each menu item we ordered. The experience was casual, upscale and delightful.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat value, excellent serviceHighlight of the experience, besides the food, was the waitperson. She was absolutely zeroed in on providing all that she could to make our evening grand. I think my wife said at one point, "what a sweetheart she is." Time for a bonus for her because she is doing much to promote your business.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMReasonable portions, goodReasonable portions, good value, relatively healthy restaurant5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful!This was our first meal at Seasons 52 and it was wonderful. Even though they practice portion control, it was one of the tastiest meals I've had in a long time. We began with the chicken pesto flatbread starter which was a delicious surprise. Scallops for me and swordfish for my husband and on to their small, but yummy desserts.
It was our anniversary and they brought a complementary half glass of sparkling for us. The wine list is notable and reasonably priced. I know the retail on many of the wines they had listed and their markup is fair.
I loved the bar where the lounge pianist was seated in the middle. Ironically his song list took us both back to the 80s...so delightful for our 31st wedding anniversary.
We will be back!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the ambiance and quietI loved the ambiance and quiet nature of the place. The food was excellent and healthy. Our waiter, Kenny, was outstanding. We loved the healthy nature of the menu items. The wine list was perfect.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFriends celebrating birthdaysWhat a wonderful experience - we arrived to smiling faces and a warm greeting. When we were seated, birthday cards were presented to my friends by a wonderful server who made the dining experience even better. I would recommend this restaurant and location to anyone.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service!!!!Everything about this place is great, but the service is OUTSTANDING. It was my girlfriend's birthday, and a card was waiting for her at the table. We had some allergies, and they were able to produce a gluten free menu and make other changes to accommodate our needs. None of our requests were a problem. Multiple people came by with different solutions, but in a very friendly casual way. We were deep in conversation, and none of the staff ever felt intrusive, but they were always there. The items on the menu had a great price range...something for every budget. The mini desserts are always a huge hit, and they do them very well at this restaurant.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFinest diningWe were there to celebrate our anniversary. Surprised to receive a glass of champagne and wishes for a wonderful evening.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe seasonal selections areThe seasonal selections are excellent.
