    For the most part we were pleased we choose Seasons 52 to celebrate my mom's birthday. There was piano music and singing at the bar. A bit too loud for the dining area and the tempo of the songs he sang were all the same. The food was great except my mom had to send her pork back twice. She wanted well done pork, not pink. When you are well into your 80's you should get what you want the first time. My husband and i plan on returning.

    From start to finish, the experience at Seasons 52 was fabulous. The lobster flatbread was crisp and delicious. I had seared scallops that melted in my mouth. My husband had the rack of lamb, which was excellent. Service was outstanding. Highly recommend!

    We had a great meal from start to finish. My dad is in a motorized wheelchair and they were able to accommodate us accordingly. Our food was delicious. My moms food came out a little later than everyone else's which wasn't the end of the world but they made sure to have the chef bring it out. I even got a birthday drink which was so sweet! I think my only complaint was that it was hard to talk to everyone at the table since there were 7 of us because the music was a little loud. It probably wouldn't have been an issue at a smaller table but it was difficult to talk to everyone. Overall though we had a great experience! Thanks so much!

    Excellent flavors, lots of healthy choices!! We thought the portions might be small, due to the fact that everything is under 475 calories (or whatever) so we ordered extra, but ended up stuffed! Portions are perfect!

    I had the filet minon, which was really good. The problem I had was that my date ordered the chicken and it came out cold. She sent it back and when the manager brought it back out it wasn't cooked completely in the middle. Instead of trying for a third try she went with the salmon. The salmon came out really good but the side dish was cold so the manager had to get a new and actually hot one. The waitress and manager were great. I just wish the kitchen would slow down and make sure everything is right before it heads out to the table.

    The food was absolutely delicious and the ambiance was perfect for a romantic dinner out. Our appetizer was a bit delayed but the chef was courteous and extremely apologetic as he informed us of the miss communication and it was comped from our bill. When the lump crab stuffed mushroom did arrive, it was so light and perfect. Our entrees were on time and executed perfectly. We will certainly dine at Seasons 52 when the Autumn menu comes out to try that out. The only part of the experience I wasn't thrilled with was waiting for a table even though we had a reservation but I guess that's a typical Friday night for you.

    Seasons 52 is always a good choice for dinner. I think everyone enjoyed the menu, and I like how it changes frequently. The wait staff knows the menu and are extremely responsive. The only challenge that I've ever had is with the people at the host / hostess stand. The young ladies that greet you are less than personable (almost as if you're a burden) and you really don't feel "welcome". They are not to the level of professionalism as the rest of the restaurant.

    All the reviews I read beforehand said the dining room was noisy. We went early. There was live music in the bar-ballads in the style of Billy Joel. I loved it. We sat in a booth along the windows. Even as the room filled up, we (party of 3) could still converse easily. We ordered the Warm Roasted Olives and Duo Hummus for appetizers. The olives were really novel: warm, nicely spiced. I am a big hummus fan and both flavors were excellent, but the mint was new to me and especially delectable. Two of us had the Summer Vegetarian Tasting. Best Tofu I have ever had in a restaurant. We ordered one of the sommelier-recommended white wines. It did not disappoint. Desserts were perfect: small servings to finish off a wonderful meal.

    Who cares that the entrees are less than 475 calories? The food is fabulous. The low calorie is a bonus. Very fresh and interesting without being pretentious. The mini indulgence desserts are perfect after a mean. Service outstanding. A bit loud even at a "quiet table" so keep that in mind and this is when it was not crowded so beware.

    The menu is always unique. Food quality was super good. Ryan our waiter was great, helpful and respectful about how much time to spend at the table. Have been here many times, and this trip reconfirmed we will keep going back. Surprise value was a flight of wines for $15 which included a Flatbread, and a full glass of your favorite wine from the flight! Awesome? YES!

    arrived at 5:30 and 6:22 going home. We were shown to a table near the kitchen although it was not crowded I refused and was given another one. The food is good, salad was brought closely followed by the entre the potato I had 2 small pieces the fish portion was large,very tasty. My husband expected peas but didn't expect them to be still be in the pod. I like the server bringing the bottle of wine to the table so I could see what I ordered. We each ordered a dessert, barely put my spoon down and the empty dish was whisked away. The next thing the bill was on the table. We felt somewhat rushed. I have eaten lunch at the Schaumburg location and did not have that rushed feeling we had here. There was no one waiting for a table.

    Seasons 52 is great place to dine after shopping at Oak Brook Mall, meeting up with a friend, or celebrating a special occasion. Our server was new and she was delightful. We had a hard time narrowing down food choices - there were so many interesting items. We both settled on the flatbreads - one lobster and one duck. We especially enjoyed the dessert choices. We plan on visiting again when the menu changes for the Fall season.

    I had dined at Seasons 52 in the past, both times in the bar area. Since I did not have a reservation on either occasion, we were told to sit in the lounge and wait for the first available booth. The problem with that is that it is hard to enjoy your drink and the music at the bar when you are constantly waiting for a booth to become available. This third time I made reservations assuming I would be escorted directly to the dining room and was taken to the lounge. I asked if the dining room was closed and the hostess said no, did I want to be seated there. Logistics aside, I love the flatbreads, the seasonal menu, the specialty drinks ( although they are too pricey) and the mini desserts. Also the wine list is well chosen. I will return.

    Can't beat eating well on a calorie budget. Usually offer decent wines and an interesting signature cocktail or two, though they were missing a key ingredient and couldn't make me the one I ordered. I did not suffer. Typically good meal in a very nice atmosphere.
