    Ease of reservations for 4 of us at 7 pm Saturday night thru open table - perfect. We arrived at 7, were immediately seated, again perfect. Jeremiah was our wonderful waiter - great selections were recommended, and he was attentive to everyone's needs throughout the night. The lamb special was the choice for three of the party and the scallops were my choice. Everything was amazing, cooked to perfection. We will so go back to Seasons 52 at the Headquarters, it's easy to get to, valet parking and wandering around looking at shops afterwards on our way back to the Grand Hyatt was a great way to end the evening.

    I'll keep it short. Great place with superb service and classy and comfortable atmosphere. I'm rather health conscious so I loved that all menu items were light (<500 kcal), which allows one to share an appetizer, have an entre, and a dessert without feeling like a force fed goose.

    So enjoyed our meal. We eat here often and are never disappointed. My steak came out well done and they took it back to the kitchen and offered me something else to nibble on until they could broil a new one. When it arrived it was perfection. Love this place!

    Dylan, our server, was great - very attentive. The food was fantastic -- we ordered from the "small plate" menu and the regular menu. Of note, advise diners that the grilled scallops are sitting on a bed of salt - we found out the hard way when a scallop fell into the salt - oohhh.

    Our server was a wonderful delight and made for a very enjoyable eating experience. I ordered the scallops, which were seasoned well but was cold by the time it got to the table (the A/C was on pretty high). My husband ordered the branzini, which was pretty tasty, and our friends ordered the pork chops and a side of Brussels sprouts. The pork was very tender but the sprouts came on an unnecessarily hot cast iron vessel that didn't cool down even afterwards, causing slight burns between the pair sharing the dish. We did love the live music from the bar. That kicked the ambiance up a notch

    This restaurant has healthy food prepared beautifully. We went two nights in a row because I knew I could trust that I wouldn't get ingredients that I can't easily tolerate. Aside from that the service was fabulous. Ambience nice too. Wish we had found it earlier in our stay.

    Had the unfortunate experience of a Sunday late afternoon, early evening reservation. Yes the place was busy, but my party of 6 sat for 40 minutes before water and drinks arrived, then had to rush the dinner delivery and most all the food came out slightly burned. Disappointing as it's a nice location.

    Because we are health conscious it is hard to dine out and find quality and tasteful meals. But Seasons 52 has a great menu with so many options, all under 475 calories. The food was plated nicely and tasted wonderful. We even had one of the famous dessert cups because when your meal is a healthy option, you might as well have a reasonable portion of dessert!

    Restaurant week. heard great things about it and am happy I finally went to The Headquarters location. I was highly disappointed that I had to pay $11.00 for mandatory valet. Basically what I saved by doing restaurant week, I ended up spending on valet. The staff upon entering was fantastic from start to finish. I dined with a friend I had to catch up with so we lingered. Our waitperson was excellent. I wish I could remember her name but it has been a couple weeks now. The food was awesome, zero complaints and all compliments. From the appetizers to the dessert all really great. I would recommend this place to everyone. My friend ended up parking over near seaport village and didn't get a ticket and didn't have to pay $11.00 for valet!

    First time here & it was a Tuesday night on restaurant week although we didn't go there for that reason but we had friends staying across the street at a hotel. There were six of us dining, five of us had the restaurant week special of filet mignon that was delicious & one had the scallops which he said was very good. Service was great being that it was extremely busy. It was a bit noisy maybe due to the amount of people in the restaurant but it was hard to carry on a conversation at our table but I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    I absolutely love food, but I'm also extremely health conscious. Was so grateful to find a restaurant that is almost as health-conscious as I am. The seasonal vegetables for the menu were mushrooms and broccoli, and everything was delicious. We had the chicken skewer appetizer which had an awesome fuji slaw, and for dinner I had the steak salad which was a perfect portion. To top off the experience, we had an awesome server who was very polite and prompt! Can't wait to go back!

    We've always driven by "The Headquarters," but were prompted to check the place out given its inclusion in San Diego Restaurant Week. We liked most everything about Seasons 52. The patio outside was great for us, especially on a nice night. The food was really good, especially the flat bread which, well, knocked us on our butts. The wine selection was fine...we were each happy with what we ordered. The service was quite good, our server responsive and knowledgeable, but not overwhelming, bugging us every 5 minutes. The ambiance was excellent, at least the night that we went. We were going to be seated inside, but we requested to be outside given that, uh, it's San Diego, right. We were pleased to get our patio table and would recommend it.

    The salmon was really good. The vegetables that canes with it had no flavoring. But I did ask for no garlic, so I'm not sure if that made a difference. Everything in the menu is under 540 calories.

    Food need not be buried in rich sauces to be delicious. There is an extensive menu, with plenty of vegetarian options. The waitress brought tastes of several wines to help us choose. Best of all, the desserts were free, since it was my husband's birthday. You can get small servings of desserts-- another nice touch.

    I love this restaurant! The food is delicious AND really healthy, too. I count all my calories and nutrients, and I can even have dessert there! One caution is that the dining room is VERY noisy, so if you like quiet, go at the less popular hours, or eat outside in the patio, where it is lovely and quiet! Also, if you have mobility issues, as I do, there is valet parking and easy egress.

    We frequent the restaurant, really liking the healthy alternatives... We live in the neighborhood as well. We brought our of town family on Sunday. The food was a hit as always, but the service really was not up to par... Not sure why, as the dining room was not super busy. A bit disappointed but look forward to better service next time.

    Ambiance was great, food and service were just "Ok." Server seemed to be at the end of his shift and would have rather been somewhere else. Food was under-seasoned; lamb chops tasted mostly of char. Had a great experience on previous visit so willing to give it one more shot.

    Short version: Service top rate, food excellent. Longer version: We travel extensively, and have been to several Seasons 52 throughout the country and wanted to try the San Diego location for a bite. We were expecting 4 stars, but the service and food put it to a higher level - better than expected. Kelly - our server - we would give 6 stars. Attitude, recommendations, and service was top rate from her. I had the sea bass special, my wife the halibut. Both were very well prepared - nothing left on the plate - and we are not big people. We came in on happy hour and to have flatbread, plus a tasting of three 90+ rated wines for $20 is a steal. Yes we would go back - an excellent experience this time.

    We live across the street....how cool is that?! Always love the atmosphere and the service...warm and welcoming. Great Wine Flight Happy Hour as well as a wonderful special occasion spot! The reason I gave it a minus one star rating was due to the caprese salad not having any flavor in the burrata and we requested bread sticks but were told that they burned in the oven. (Kenneth removed the cost of the Caprese as well as waved the corkage fee, so it's hard to be too disapproving....in fact that's one of the things I love about OUR Seasons....everyone will do whatever it takes to make you happy!)
