Diner Reviews
  • "We had a great Dinner, Great Waiter, there was a point where we felt he was a bit too busy to take care of us, as we had to walk up to the bar and order another glass of Red wine. However, we think he realized this, and comped our dessert and gave us Cava with Raspberries. We think he knew he was being slightly inattentive, however he more than made up for it. This is what is best in a restaurant, when the mgmt. sees that there could be a problem with service brewing and heads it off at the pass. We have nothing but a rave review for the restaurant. It will be a usual stop for us now! Plus the complimentary photos were a plus! The steaks were cooked perfectly and Piano bar was great!"

  • "I come here often. I love they change some of the menu weekly and some seasonally and that much of the food is local and very fresh.. I always enjoy the service and delicious flavors and of course the mini indulgences for dessert!!"

  • "I have dined a total of 5 times in this restaurant in the past year. Unfortunately, the prices have been significantly increased and the food portions have been reduced since my last eating at this restaurant and since my last review which gave the restaurant top marks. We sat in the patio instead of inside this time. Service was a bit slow and we had to wait for our dinner - more than normally at this place. Food amount clearly was reduced and prices have been significantly increased. I used to love coming to this place but not so sure anymore with the changes that have occurred since my last dining here."

  • "We went as a group of 6 for a Tue lunch at 12:15 on a reservation. We got the table right away and the place was very busy. It was quite loud which made it hard to hear the waitress for the specials. Beside that, the place is well designed. We were impressed with food quality and taste but the wait was extra long. We did not get our entrees until way pass 1. The waitress did not come to explain so I guess that is expected in this place."

  • "First time dining at Seasons 52 and had heard good things about the menu. Ordered an appetizer to share with my friend, two lunch entrees and one side. It took almost an hour to get our lunch entrees after our waitress continuously said they were almost ready. She did offer us a free dessert for the wait but then also realized our side never came out either. The waitress was very apologetic and the tastiness of the food made up for it."

  • "The food, presentation and ambience are excellent at this restaurant. The menu focuses on healthy, reduced calorie entrees - Hooray! Best of all, customer satisfaction is primary. The Manager comped all 3 of our dinners due to a problem with one entree. High Class!!!!"

  • "We went here for dinner the day I retired. Our waiter offered us free champagne. The food and portions were great! We loved the overall feel of the restaurant. There was noise but it didn't bother our conversation at the table. I happened to mention to the waiter that I liked the shape of the 52 wine glasses. As we were getting ready to leave, the manager came to our table and said he heard we were celebrating my retirement. He gave me a box with two of the wine glasses I admired inside. Very thoughtful! We will definitely visit again when we are in the area. We tried to convince the manager that they need to open a Seasons 52 in the Palm Springs area."

  • "I took out of town guests here for a business lunch mid-week. We had a lovely table, just indoors in the back, but with the wall of windows open to the outdoors. I had picked this table because the main room is darker and noisier than the far back room. Food was great, service was good and we had a lovely time chatting and getting our work done. The place was virtually empty by 2PM, which made it much quieter. Next time I will start lunch at a later time to take advantage of the quiet."

  • "I love Seasons 52. The restaurant is always hopping, the staff is exceptionally trained, I love that you order wine and the bring the bottle to pour at your table, the price is right and the food is delicious and under 500 calories. Brilliant! A group of us went in for happy hour and each tried a flight, picked one from the flight that we wanted a whole glass of, had a delicious flatbread for $15!!! Best deal ever."

  • "Every time I come to Seasons 52, I am greeted by one of the friendliest staffs I have ever encountered. The servers are knowledgeable and helpful in suggesting their favorite menu items. The food is perfection--fresh and delicious. The ambiance is upscale yet relaxed. I love coming to Seasons 52 so much that I decided to celebrate my 30th birthday here. I can't wait!"

  • "Recently celebrated an anniversary dinner at Seasons 52 -- La Jolla. We had an exceptional experience. We were seated immediately with a reservation through Open Table (the wait without a reservation was 45+ minutes). This is obviously a popular place! The food was exceptional. I had the Chef select my entree (give me your best shot!) from the entire menu and I must say their signature steak was unlike any other I have had. Cooked perfectly and melt in your mouth. A delightful experience."

  • "We had a great time with our family at Seasons 52. The deserts were very nice and the staff friendly. Unfortunately the shrimp pasta was not good. The rest of the meals were fine, but nothing special."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We first found this place on New Year's Eve, 2012... 9 days after I had a mild heart attack. Naturally, our plans to celebrate changed, and as a result of going to a late movie at UTC instead, it was an accidental find. Our reason for eating here was initially health-driven. Our returning time and time again is now taste and ambiance-driven. Not only is the food on the healthier side, it's also a treat for the palate and the service is exceptional. We've since been here for birthdays, a romantic dinner, and a girlfriend's birthday luncheon. I have yet to eat a dish I didn't like. I do prefer to go during the dinner hour evening. There is a piano bar that adds to the ambiance and festive atmosphere. Reservations make it an effortless event."

  • "This restaurant is never disappointing and always fun. Because the service is so good and the ambience is always inviting, it's a great restaurant either for a pair of friends or a whole group. Well-trained servers always make you feel welcome."

  • "There were 4 of us dining last night. The good experiences: The service and presentation of our meals was excellent, as was the wine list. The “proteins” were cooked very nicely. The not-so-good: Two of us ordered the scallops and both dishes were barely warm. The asparagus and carrots on everyone’s plates were completely tasteless, not dressed or spiced and not tasty enough on their own. One of us asked for extra potatoes but was told that this would increase the calorie count of the dish, which is apparently forbidden. Some people are NOT on a diet and just want to eat good food. This seems like more of a “fat farm” mentality than a fine dining one."

  • "Seasons 52 is a great addition to UTC. Always a great vibe, good food and great service."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Everything is excellent. We sincerely appreciate your entire team for designing the systems and maintaining. The calorie oriented menu items are excellent and also tasty. Suitable for all age groups to enjoy. The deserts selection is very easy when your member shows the item and explains the contents. Wish you all the success. We will visit again, definitely, to see some more improvements."

The food was fresh, interesting, and filling. Love the small desserts that just give you a taste. Everything was perfect!"
