Seasons 52 - San Diego
Every time we visit everyEvery time we visit every aspect is exceptional!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur reservation must've beenOur reservation must've been between shifts because there was some confusion getting seated and then we were virtually ignored for about 1/2 hr or so. We hadn't seen each other in a while so the wait was tempered by some of the catching up. By the time we started noticing that we hadn't even been given waters yet, the restaurant was also beginning to realize. Everybody was very apologetic and the manager came over personally and offered to buy a round a drinks (we'd literally just ordered a round of cocktails). Apart from the initial confusion, the restaurant itself is beautiful, great food, entertaining with a live pianist/singer in the bar area and, I'm certain on any other occasion, attentive. Would definitely recommend.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentExcellebt healthy selection, great ambiance and friendly staff!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMwhat a great place to eat!Seasons 52 has become my all-time favorite! I love introducing friends to the place because they are always so impressed by the decor, the wonderful wait staff and certainly, by the food!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMalways feel great afterwardsHow can you go wrong with a menu of low-cal, delicious items? My family loves the fact that all orders are under 450 calories. The salmon is delicious.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food was EXCELLENTAs always the food was EXCELLENT and service was outstanding. Went there for Mother's Day celebration and could not have asked for a better location or food. Filet Mignon was SOOOO tender and flavorful - not sure how they do it and still stay under 475 calories. GREAT!!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSeasons 52 San DiegoWe were seated immediately at 6:45pm on a Friday night at a lovely booth. Service was immediate and gracious. We were all ready for food and drink right away and we received both perfectly prepared.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been here quite aWe have been here quite a few times. The food continues to be good considering the calorie count. The only negative thing I can say is that it was really loud this time. If you want to have a conversation with more than 2 people, it is hard to hear. Especially for older patrons. The food and service are always outstanding. It is a good place to go if you want activity and a good bar scene with the piano player.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great but it wasFood was great but it was a little slow coming out of the kitchen.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMYou must have a reservationYou must have a reservation unless you are eating at 11AM, 3 PM or after 8. Christian was an excellent server and the food was excellent - and healthy! Complimentary valet parking is a wonderful perk.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AM52 loverAlways an excellent meal, great service and a very welcoming experience.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timeThe food was outstanding but even with a reservation we waited almost an hour past the reserved time. The staff was very aware and did everything they could to rectify it by even discounting the bill. I was impressed! Can't wait to go back.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Season is Always RightSeasons 52 continues to be a unique restaurant with a varied menu fit for all kinds of diets and appetites. We enjoy the specials and the freshness of the food. The ambience is great, conducive to good conversation and dining and oh, those desserts--not to be missed--and still help you stay on your food program. Appreciated the complimentary flatbread since we had to wait for our reserved table for quite a while...will go back.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeI recently went to dine with a good friend at Seasons 52. It was the fourth time for both of us quite simply because we love the food, the setting, and the ambience.
This time, however, the service was less than ideal--to the point of making dining there a negative rather than our usual positive, even idyllic experience. This time it was painful. We are not impatient people, but the service was so slow and, frankly, we went unnoticed for long periods of time. Very disappointing. We were unable to determine if this was a result of understaffing or the nature of our particular server. We will be sending the restaurant a brief note asking for clarification.
This restaurant is a gem. So sorry this single experience colored it questionable.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality over quantityFinally, a restaurant where health-conscious people can get a great meal with no regrets. The food is high quality, and the portions are a manageable size. This is especially true of their amazing desserts which are served in tall shot glasses. Sometimes you just want a little something sweet after a meal instead of gorging yourself on a huge hunk of something laden with fat and sugar. These little dessert gems are so flavor-intense, a few spoonfuls really are enough to satisfy!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMCreative MenuWe were 4 seniors looking for an early dinner after a movie. Seasons 52 was perfect, lots of choices but reasonable portions served attractively. Our waiter was very considerate and helpful. Only problem is that during prime times, it is very difficult to get a table and can be very noisy. Hence we made reservations and went early.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWelcome additionto the San Diego dining scene . . . valet parking . . . pleasant greeting . . . good table . . . cordial service . . . bit noisy . . . food delivered well and soon . . . four of us ordered same entree but requested differing vegetables . . . all four plates came exactly the same . . . but the vegetables were fine . . . good experience . . . try Seasons52!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA surprise in the mallWe prefer and are used to restaurants set apart so to speak...this one being in large mall...but it works.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCreative and changing menu,Creative and changing menu, with that wonderful added benefit of each dish being under 475 calories (even those yummy desserts!) Very attentive service. I also loved the little detail of having the check separated out by guest--so easy to do and saved us time! Well done5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the tiny dessertsSeason 52 has a lot going for it -- but I love the idea of tiny bites of dessert for $2.50. And they are top notch desserts, too. Everyone else has said all there is to say about the seasonal menu, healthy preparation of the food, gorgeous presentation, etc. It was a great experience and deserves all the hype it has received.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service.
VeryGreat food and service.
Very noisy with piano bar not separated from dining aras. Hard ceiling makes it hard to have a conversation.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurantsOne of my favorite restaurants in my area, also for the fact that it is at the UTC Mall, so this restaurant is in a convenient location.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply fabulousHaving been to Seasons 52 on a number of occasions, I can honestly say that this restaurant is my absolute favorite. I love the menu philosophy with no item exceeding a healthy number of calories. The food is delicious! Desserts are to die for. You feel so healthy while you are enjoying absolutely wonderfully prepared appetizers, entrees, salads, everything!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experience. AmazedA wonderful experience. Amazed at how great the flavors were in each dish and still be low in calories.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service excellentFood and service excellent as always. Will say the piano bar musician was a tad too loud piped through the restaurant, and I don't believe he knew any material that was more recent than 1962. "If Ever I Should Leave You" was sung by Robert Goulet on Broadway in about that time period ... haha! But I love the food and think it's very creative and simple and gorgeous.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBecoming our favoriteWe were in Sonoma room this time (back room, not sure about name) and loved it because the noise level was lower and we could visit.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to Seasons 52 for theI went to Seasons 52 for the first time a couple of weeks ago with some friends. Since then I have been back 2 more times for both lunch and dinner. The fresh selections are amazing. Since the menu is always changing you never get tied of eating the same thing. Everything is delicious and well prepared. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. A big thumbs up to our server Summer who is the friendliest person you ever want serving you.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were excellent.Food and service were excellent. I liked the idea that all of the food was "calorie conscious" and freshly prepared. The entree salads were large and very good. For the larger eaters (like my husband) he had to order a salad and a main dish, making it pretty pricey. Hardly an "vegetables" with the salmon entree....could have used more than one small peice of 3-4 veggies. My daughter and I stuck to the salads which were reasonable as an entree.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodWe've been there several times, and have never been disappointed! We'll be back.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThey really have a good ideaThey really have a good idea with thier seasonal low cal meals.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd time and very pleasedOur reservation was handled well and our server was excellent. We were seated in a back room which was much more private than the open floor area and this was helpful and conducive to the business lunch I was having. The menu is exceptional and unique - and thankfully the portions are not super sized, just perfect.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIhave eaten there severalIhave eaten there several times. They do a wonderful preparation of fish. Really recommend it. Love their little servings of dessert for $ 2.504/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAll of the servers were veryAll of the servers were very helpful. Our server spent a lot of time answering all our questions.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVegan/Vegetarian lunchI love this restaurant's urbane sophisticated atmosphere, warm wood-and-glass decor, and creative, fresh, excellent cuisine. Most recently had lunch there with a vegan friend. My friend was quite pleased with the Vegan Tasting lunch: asparagus spears grilled to perfection, flavorful tofu roasted on a cedar plank, and a soft taco. I ordered the Vegetarian variation of the same dish, which includes cheese in the taco. We were both particularly fond of the soft taco filling of black bean, roasted peppers, pico de gallo and guacamole, and I of the stuffed roasted mini pepper. The quinoa salad was delicious, could perhaps have benefited from bolder seasoning. Overall, another very positive dining experience at Seasons52.

Food was a plesant suprise to my guests who had not been there before.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA welcome addition to theA welcome addition to the neighborhood! They need to make sure they stock enough bottles when offering the wine tasting menu....4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the portions. I thinkLove the portions. I think I ordered the wrong thing for my entree but the appetizers and dessert were great and I liked the entrees if the other two people I was with. Kind of expensive for how much food you get though.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI made our reservation a weekI made our reservation a week in advance. We arrived and gave the hostess our name, it took 3 times to get the reservation right, we were led to a table then asked to excuse them wrong party and this occured twice more. No one said a word to us, they just kept leading us around the dinning room.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my second visit toThis is my second visit to Seasons 52 & I thoroughly enjoyed both times. Your wait people are fantastic. We had Ana as a server and she could not have been more helpful. Prior to that we had Joshua and he also was wonderful.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere and it'sGreat atmosphere and it's obvious that the staff is well trained in customer service. Food is unique and quite good4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLow Cal tastes greatWho knew low-calorie food could taste so good! All of their salads are great including the house salad and the flat bread we tried--weekly special with eggplant--was delicious.
Have been twice for lunch and plan to bring other friends and family back. But be sure to make a reservation b/c the place is packed and all the seats at the bar are full, even at lunchtime!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed every aspect, Food,Enjoyed every aspect, Food, atmospher and service.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI attended a business lunchI attended a business lunch here on a Monday. We met at 11:30 and left at 1:15. When we got there it was slow but when we left the place was packed! I would definitely recommend reservations. Wait staff was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, even noting that one of the soups had a "peppery back" which was helpful in my selection. I ordered the BBQ chicken salad, which came with very moistly grilled chicken on "satay" sticks (3) and a carafe of salad which was emptied after being delivered to the table. It was more than enough food. Wait staff was attentive but not interuptive and he greeted us using the name on the reservation. The only thing that I don't care for is they present desserts, even if you say you are not interested.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost a twin to Gulfstream Rest!WOW...almost as great as the Gulfstream restaurant in Newport Beach and that is HARD to beat. Wished Seasons were closer in rather than in a shopping mall.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found 52 Seasons to haveWe found 52 Seasons to have excellent service, good food and all the personnel that we encountered were great.
