    We were hoping to have a 'quiet' table in the back room of the otherwise 'energetic vibe'. That would be a lovely addition to the restaurant...a 'quiet' room.

    This is a fantastic place to celebrate a special occasion. They make the honored guest feel very special, from the birthday card to the champagne to the special dessert. Our server, Sean was very attentive, friendly and helpful. Oh, I almost forgot, he even took a picture of our group and gave one to each guest. Thank you.

    Dined on 11/18/2014
    Hard to believe that entrees are as low in calories as the menu claims that they are, since portions are fairly large. All 4 of us at my table enjoyed our meals. The restaurant was pretty crowded, even late on a Tuesday night, and I imagine that that will continue to be the case since the combination of a convenient location (at the mall), good food, and decent prices should make this an attractive restaurant to people looking for healthier choices for dining out.

    We love Seasons 52 and have eaten at a number of them. We were down in San Diego for a family celebration and returned to this location one night for dinner with friends. We were seated almost immediately, the food was excellent-as always, the restaurant was quite crowded so service wasn't as fast as usual (which allowed us more time to spend with our friends,) and still rated highly. Thank you, Renee. We were seated in a room I had never seen before, where it was a lttle quieter than in the main part of the restaurant, which was nice. We are looking forward to another visit-soon!

    Seasons 52 was a perfect location for a joint birthday celebration for my wife and her sister. The restaurant accommodated our large group and the service was absolutely outstanding. Many guests were dining at Seasons 52 for the first time and all were impressed with the menu, prices, service, and ambiance. I'm sure many will return again.

  • I love this restaurant BUT
    opentablefan
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    I love this restaurant--its food and ambiance and wait staff--but they really need to get a handle on taking their patrons with reservations in a timely manner. We had 12:45 pm reservations but arrived early (at noon) and checked in (thank God we did). Per their request, we came back at 12:30. They didn't take us till after 1 pm (It could have been 1:15 or later), and at that time there were others waiting from their 12:30 reservations. (We know because they were clear they were not happy.) That is unconscionable. If you want to have lunch here, best to come at 11:45 or 1:15, or plan on a very long wait. Just sayin'.

    I was a regular customer to Season 52. At least come onc a month. Byt the last 2 times I went to Season 52 was dissapointing. Ordered swordfish entree that was dry. Then ordered steak that supposed to be medium to well done but came out still rare. The filet mignon also have a lot of fat. The server asked if i want a replacment, but at that time I was already not in the mood. Should have it done correctly the first time. I do not think I will be going back anytime soon.

    Food was okay. If you are already in the mall it's a good choice. They are all about the calorie count and trying to make you feel healthy. Too much salt. No flexibility if you want something not their version of healthy. The service was fabulous (unless you ask for condiments...). I don't need to go back.

    Took my girlfriend here as her first place in San Diego. Very nice location and beautiful restaurant on the inside. We were in the mood for a salad and they were just alright. Seems like they took a bag of mixed greens, tossed on some dressing, and slapped on a price tag. Nothing really wow about them, could have been better. Service was good, waitress was very nice. The glass shooter dessert was good, would have been better if they had french press coffee. Overall, a romantic spot if you aren't terribly concerned with 4 star food. You'll pay for it though.

    Healthy! Tasty! Wonderful menu selection! I had the trout, which was excellently prepared. This restaurant has a lot of tables, including a patio. The fact that there was nearly an hour wait on Wed evening is testament to how good and popular this place is (luckily I made reservations for my party of 5 several weeks in advance). Have been here for lunch as well - love their tacos and flatbreads.

    Really excellent restaurant with extensive menu and no dish over 475 calories - not sure how they do it! Had a mushroom flatbread and my wife had scallops. Both were very good. It was jam-packed and pretty noisy, but not to the point of distraction. Service was fast.

    Seasons 52 is always a great experience. If you make reservations they call the day before to make sure you are still coming. The wait staff have always been super friendly and attentive and the food is delicious. I would go to Seasons 52 every couple weeks if I had someone to go with just to try the new menu items each season.

    I like Seasons 52 for what they try to accomplish... fresh, healthful food with minimal calories. There is a nice variety of dishes and they rotate them as seasonal offerings change at the market. There's nothing amazing here. The flat breads are good and they offer a nice selection of different toppings. The salads are pretty awful. The entrees are okay. It's decent healthful food. Not great, but good for you.

    Perfect restaurant for a pre movie night out or stroll around the mall afterwards. Food and menue are outstanding lots of choices for everyone and don't let the "less than 300 calories per item" thing scare you it's delicious and won't leave you feeling full like so many other restaurants do. Try to the cedar plank salmon and the brussle sprouts. Flat breads are to die for as well as the salads.

    For a long time I have heard good things about Seasons 52 so was excited to try. They were out of the wine that was recommended so we chose a different one which was twice as expensive and tasted like vinegar. The margarita flat bread which they claim is their specialty was nothing special, it was burnt and falling off the plate and pretty bland. I had the ahi tuna salad, way too sweet, sweet dressing and pineapple and the tuna had no flavor, was hoping for some spices or crust around it. My husband had the flat iron steak entrée, there was about 3 small pieces of meat, a tiny scoop of mashed potatoes and the same boring roasted tomato that was on the flat bread. Will not go back.

    We opted to eat lunch outside, but until we were seated, we were unaware that they were painting & working on the construction in the outside patio area. It would have been nice to have been informed before we were seated so that we would have had a legitimate choice about eating indoors or outdoors.
