Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I booked the back room for 24 people on short notice, and the catering coordinator and serving staff were unbelievably great. They were very professional, flexible, and made the whole event relaxing for us. The menu is suitable for large groups, and the food is very good. The evening was reasonably priced, and I wholehearted recommend this restaurant. "

  • "I value being ffered a low-calorie menu, especially for lunch. High noise level inhibited conversation"

  • "I love everything abot Seasons 52. It's a special place to meet with friends or a romantic nature."

  • "Good menu for seniors, desserts are the perfect size to add a sweet after meal, but won't cause you loosen your belt."

  • "I'll admit, the food the second time was not as amazing as our first outing to Seasons 52, but I have to say that the service is head and shoulders above the already-high standard they set almost a year ago, when we first visited. All of our dinners were fine with each plate having a truly wonderful highlight, but as a whole they kind of were just okay. The stuffed mushrooms were a little lacking, my salmon was light, though perhaps too much so, the polenta was inundated with veggies, though otherwise delicious, etc. We'll certainly go again for an occasion dinner."

  • "I brought my son and daughter-in-law for a birthday celebration and as always both food and service were top-notch. I particularly liked that the server rememberred my name from the reservation and made a special effort after I explained that we were celebrating two birthdays a little late. My favorite part of the meal may be the desserts, which are big enough to give you a generous taste without being so big that you regret eating them. I had something with butterscotch that was heavenly."

  • "I have to say the service was very slow. You definitely can't be in a hurry at this restaurant when ordering dinner. We came on a weeknight to celebrate co-workers birthday of course not much time to celebrate as we have to be at work the next day but it was unfortunate that some of us only had 15 minutes to eat then hit the road and not be able to dine and enjoy dinner while conversing. We did enjoy our cocktails but by the time our dinner entrees were served it was time for us to pack our bags and go! We would ask our server how soon we would get our dinner and she would tell us in a few minutes but it sure took longer then a few minutes. I do have to say it was nice they provided a greeting card to wish the celebrant a happy birthday."

  • "I always get the same thing here, the Vegetarian Tasting followed by the Cannoli mini-indulgence, but it never gets old. Both my husband and I enjoyed our meals and were happy with the level of service we received. We will definitely be coming back again and again."

  • "We dined at Seasons 52 to celebrate my birthday. The décor and ambience were quite nice. We shared a flatbread and it was a large enough appetizer for the three of us. I liked the a la carte portion of the menu and ordered a lobster tail and a salad for my entrée. The lobster tail was quite good and very reasonably priced. The best menu item was my husband's cedar plank salmon -- it was truly wonderful, moist and almost creamy. I would definitely eat here again."

  • "Salmon entree under cooked -poor quality Trout entree much better Restaurant needs to serve bread or rolls Seems like too much emphasis on saving money carrots are cheap vegetable and undercooked really not cooked at all"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Went with friends for dinner. Interesting drinks menu. Had two of the flatbreads which were great especially the lamb meatballs and goat cheese. Interesting dinner salads and small plates but we all had regular main courses. Particularly good were the salmon and rack of lamb which were perfectly good and delicious. We all loved their small dessert selections which are varied and just the right size. This is now one of our regular dinner spots"

  • "This was our third time dining at Season's 52 and we are hooked! The food is fantastic and, for someone who wants to eat fresh, healthy and great-tasting food there is no better place in town! The service is friendly and professional and the atmosphere is very inviting. We just hope that more of these restaurants open in San Diego soon!"

  • "The food is so fresh and tasty. The servers are wonderful, I didn't realize the lamb chops were on the dinner menu, but they asked and were able to serve them for us at lunch. The desserts are so fun and just the right size. I love that they change their main menu with the seasons and also have weekly specials. The flat breads are delicious."

  • "So disappointed by a recent lunch at Seasons 52 UTC. We were seated in the bar and mostly ignored. My friend and I ordered the spring vegetarian plate, an array of unseasoned vegetables, tasteless tofu, a weird taco (black beans and feta?) and quinoa salad. The dessert selection was great as always but I will not return."

  • "My wife loves this place and we frequent every month or so to try the ever-changing seasonal menu items. Not too expensive if you're into sampling different appetizers."

  • "Another excellent dining experience at Seasons 52. The trout is no kidding one of their best offerings and this is coming from someone who isn't really a fish person. The staff, the food and the ambience are all above par IMHO and I highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We had a large round table which was conducive for conversation. Food was good, chicken pesto flatbread, excellent and two "picky eaters" had turkey burgers which they claim the best they ever had. Our server was helpful and available for any extras. Of course the "mini" desert was not only cute, but delicious. We tried lemon with cake. I would reccommend this restaurant to small groups for good conversation or a romantic evening with your man."

  • "Seasons 52 is a very pleasant dining experience. The ambiance is very pleasing and relaxing. The service and menu selection have always been excellent."

  • "Our first time at this restaurant - we tried to get a table last year on the day of our arrival from Denver, but learned this restaurant was too popular for that. This year we made our reservations 6 weeks in advance. It was worth the year-long wait."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "A perfect restaurant for delicious food and wine without the salt and fat hangover. Don't let the healthy preparations fool you, it all tastes decadent. Flat breads are a must snd the tuna tartare is another favorite. Make reservations, love that they take them forl unch too."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "It is rare that you can find a restaurant that caters to both "normal" and Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegetarian/Vegan dishes in one place. But the exquisite presentations were wonderful on both counts. The food was tasty and fresh and the servings were more than adequate! Having each type of alternative menu available to view saved a lot of time (asking about food preparations, etc.) that you usually find when you go out, if you have food sensitivities or allergies. It makes for a delightful experience! You can check out their alternative menus online, or ask for that menu when you arrive."

  • "I love your restaurant, but as a hearing disabled person, it remains a mystery to me why restaurants almost without exception have background noise/music so loud as to preclude pleasant conversation. Friends go to dinner together to enjoy one another's company through conversation which is thoroughly hampered by the high level of background music/noise however pleasant the music may be. thank you for asking,"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This is a great addition to UTC. Went for dinner after movie at ArcLight. We ate at the bar where service is prompt and friendly and the drinks excellent. The flat breads are terrific appetizers, and I had salmon and my wife had the lamb chops. Both were delicious and properly cooked. The small deserts are quite varied, all excellent and just enough without being overwhelming."

  • "The food was really good and you didn't feel overly stuffed walking out after having an appetizer, entree and dessert. The service was execellent, the waiter was on top of everything from drinks to the timing of dessert Etc... Someone in our party left there cell phone behind and within 5 minutes of leaving I received a voicemail stating they had locked it up in their safe."

  • "Really enjoyed the lunch menu options and a great place to meet a friend for lunch if you are not seated near a large group. If you are--hearing each other speak can be a real challenge! The soups are magnificent, with the butternut squash being one of my favorites. The restaurant emphasizes fresh organic local food with a creative flair. Also really like the dessert tray with a different "small dish" options."

  • "The menu was delightful and we all enjoyed our choices. The wine (white) did not come appropriately chilled so we had to wait while it was chilled. Otherwise, all was lovely."

  • "Finally an up scale restaurant with tasty, healthy food in a mall! The caramelized scallops and seared ahi tuna salad where perfection. Can't wait to try out the new spring menu. Will definitely go back even if I have no shopping to do. I loved that all the main menu items were 475 calories or less."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Elegant, beautiful decor, excellent service and tastefully presented, savory and yet healthy dishes (no item is over 500 calories). As a consequence, one entree is not enough. make sure you order at least an appetizer and a main dish. All of this and a bargain to boot! This place is, for us, over 20 miles away and, even though we are lucky to have many fine restaurants close by, we are, definitely, going back, and often."

  • "Excellent food as usual with great service from Dustin. Seasons 52 is has a relaxed yet refined ambience which we find very enjoyable. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be back again soon."
