    I brought an out-of-town friend for a Saturday lunch. The food was fresh and tasty. The service was friendly. It was pleasantly quiet so you could carry on a conversation. There was plenty of parking. I think this is my new "go to" place.

    We went with a group of 6 of us and everything was delicious. The service was great the waitress was even able to split our bills according to what we had and divided the appetizers so we each paid for 1/6 of it. Very accommodating and overall great experience

    My wife and I went for our anniversary. Besides the awesome dinner, the staff was very accommodating. I asked the hostess if we could dine in the bar as it seemed like a lively crowd. We ordered drinks and found it to be a little louder than we preferred. I asked the hostess if we could be seated in the dinning room instead. It was no problem....seemless and we still sat at our table on time- on a Friday at 7:30pm!!!

  • Weak service, arrogant management.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 10/17/2014
    Poor service makes this healthy-food emporium a "must-miss" for for someone seeking a special night out. The food is good, with well prepared and well-presented dishes featuring a reasonable portion size. Roasted chicken is often dried out, but freshly grilled meats are well-executed. Deserts are complimentary, well-portioned, and very good. Where this place falls apart is service. Inexperience waitstaff who can't speak above the noisy din nor listen attentively is one problem, and management who think 40 year olds need ID cards before ordering a cocktail is another. There's a basic level of service and hospitality that is missing here, and it shows that management doesn't make this a priority.

    The service at Seasons 52 is always great. However, I am more interested and excited about the great food. I love eating local, organic and healthy. Seasons 52 makes my dining experience wonderful. I know that I am getting a delicious, healthy meal. And so far I have not had bad service - the staff is very educated on the menu and food sensitivities, etc.

    Okay so the night started awful by the initial reception of the 4 bodies that stood like statues at the reception desk but the Manager turned that experience around without any questions asked! We were very impressed. The service from our waitress was excellent. Food always great. Awesome wine selections! Thank you Phillip for turning this around for us! We had a great girls night out!

    We received an email about the October menu at Seasons 52 - rack of lamb with pomegranate sauce and roasted veggies. This was one of the most spectacular meals we have had anywhere. Perfectly cooked, and accompanied by a delicious flatbread appetizer and carmelized pear salad. We highly recommend this restaurante and this particular menu option. Along witht he food, great service, good wine selection, and pleasant ambience. We were in the back room, so much quieter than usual, but still with very attentive service.

    I (and my two adult daughters) truly enjoyed our dining experience at Seasons 52. Our server team, Mike D. and Mike S. were far beyond great. Their attention to detail and food recommendations were right on target. I really can't say enough good things about our dining experience to justify just how much we enjoyed ourselves. Definitely looking to do a repeat in the near future.

    The most beautifully designed interior of any restaurant in Chicago. Food is great, service is very good, ambience is superior. Piano players sometimes get too loud in the bar, would be better if they toned it down, otherwise ambiance cannot be beat.

    Nice happy hour with great appitizers. Great wine list and craft beers, goat cheese flat bread was awsome, we both enjoyed time at the piano bar before dinner for wife's B-Day. Lamb was great and she loved the scallops, finished up with very nice selection of desert tasters.

    Sat at the bar for 20 mins or so waiting on our table. Was never served. Tried several times to get the bartender's attention. Didn't seem to be that busy. Overall, food was good. Appetizers were the best part of the meal. Lump crab salad not the best, but the desserts certainly made up for it. Moni, our server was great.

    Beautiful decor, menu looked great, I was impressed with picking a great spot for a reunion. Needless to say I was truly embarrassed by the service we received by the waiter:Josiah. We ordered two salads: one organic greens with chicken & mine was the Greek no tomato with chicken. We received two salads- no chicken. Then I tell him I got a Caesar salad instead of Greek. He goes oh I don't know how that happened, you going to eat it? I can just buy you both dessert. Then after those mistakes he barely came around. We had to ask several times for more dressing for my friend, because he forgot. He never came around with dessert tray so we asked for the check. Nothing was taken off our bill for the multiple mistakes. He then came with dessert.

    Their wine list SUCKS. Cheap wine offered at high prices. Who do they think they're fooling? I'd fire the guy who orders it---I don't care what he thinks he knows----we're not STUPID! If they want people to come back they should serve expensive wine at reasonable prices not cheap wine at high prices. Lost my business forever.

    I love this restaurant but this was not my best experience. The service was ok. I had reserved through open table and mentioned a birthday celebration for my friend who had turned 50 and this was a ladies lunch. I then mentioned to the server that we were celebrating a birthday. I have been to this restaurant on many occasions to know that they bring the special desert tower with the candle on top and that was not done and sadly no mention of the birthday at all. My entree was bean tacos and onions were not listed on the menu and so I was surprised when the tacos came loaded with onions. I was going to send them back but my friend took my meal instead which I felt bad about. The food was tasty as always but disappointed with the experience.

    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.

    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.
