  • "The food was good! The service excellent. And we loved the music. We will come back."

  • "If you want an incredible meal, relax in a warm and inviting setting with an ocean view... SEASONS 52 is the spot. The service is amazing, the food is healthy and delicious and the shot glass desserts from lemon to chocolate peanut butter are decadent. It is simply the best..."

  • "Having enjoyed their restaurant in Boca Raton we were looking forward to enjoying this restaurant in Santa Monica. The decor, the hosts and staff were welcoming but once we sat down it was like sitting on a cruise ship with no passengers. The place was pretty empty and the piano player's rendition of Billy Joel added to the gloom. The service was friendly and my family mostly enjoyed their food although my rack of lamb was flavorless with an au jus of mostly water. I do like their concept and appreciate the effort that apperently goes in to sourcing the fresh ingredients but this location is on borrowed time unless they do something quick."

  • "Took my kids here for lunch and really enjoyed the lobster tail appetizer. My kids had a buffalo burger and really liked them. I ordered the Blackened Ahi Tacos which were fair. Probably wouldn't order those again. This place is really about the view and being able to see the Pacific Ocean while eating lunch on a beautiful day is pretty cool."

  • "Our server was very knowledgeble about the food and the wine. There was a booth by the front window which we almost moved to but she warned us that the noise level might be a bit too much for us when the music started, so we stayed in our booth on the other side of the bar. When the music did begin, it was great and we were in the perfect location to enjoy it as well as our conversation. The dishes are all supposedly under a certain amount of calories but I have to say, I don't know how it could taste that good and be so low in carories. But we blew it anyway by having dessert. The desserts arrived in an assortment of flavors in shot glasses. We sampled 3 and the server threw in one on her that she thought we would like. All were delicious."

  • "Loved everything about the experience at Season 52 in Santa Monica. The food was great and the price was right for the view, meal and service. The lobster tail appetizer was perfect as was the goat-cheese ravioli and both our main dishes of trout and seared tuna salad. I will venture back through the promenade crowds to dine here again."

  • "This was our first visit to Seasons 52 and I picked the restaurant based on the location and other reviews. We were not disappointed and the food, service and ambiance were "outstanding". We will definitely be back!"

  • "Professionally run restaurant, big booths, healthy but tasty food and if visiting for awhile is important this is my go to place in Santa Monica. All food is under 475 calories and they have the cutest dessert options with tasters (4mouthfuls each) too indulge in.great location and 3 nice choices for sitting."

  • "My husband has eaten at this restaurant in several cities, obviously a favorite of his. This was my first time, at the Santa Monica location. I wish my husband took me sooner! It was yummy! We went with my son, daughter and her friend. It was lunchtime and not too crowded (yet) so there was room for the girls to have their own table and catch up themselves. Each meal was delicious and beautifully presented, particularly the salads- in a "cylinder" tube that was lifted up to shake the salad onto place. The desserts were also cleverly designed in small glasses and yummy too- we kept ordering more of these mini "bites" which were more than just bites and plentiful! We also lucked out with a great waiter too. I highly recommend this place!"

  • "Food was outstanding & was prepared In a delicious & all menu items are Low calorie. Desserts are light & fun too"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The professional staff, the unique locovore and seasonal fare and the tasteful atmosphere keep Seasons feeling special. You don't feel like you are in a "chain" restaurant. I have invited or recommended it to 5 or 6 people ( including foodies) who really enjoyed it and will return. It's a nice date night spot, but also great for a ladies lunch."

  • "2 filet mignons ordered medium arrived very rare & had to be sent back bread&butter delivered to the table after the order with the wine might be a nice touch"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Excellent food, fabulous and attentive service (without being instrusive), and a wonderful experience overall. Not cheap, but absolutely worth the money."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "We were seated immediately upon arrival at our reserved time for dinner. We chose a patio table, and the heaters made it very comfortable to sit outside on a cool evening. We had a nice view of the pier. The food was excellent, especially the lobster flat bread. There was a nice selection of small plates."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I were able to enjoy Seasons 52 and we may have found a new favorite date night spot! I had made reservations for Seasons 52 without knowing anything about the restaurant/atmosphere/menu and it was a surprise for my boyfriend. We both absolutely loved our meals, drinks and desserts. And our waiter, Titus, was excellent...great customer service!! We look forward to heading there again soon!"

  • "Last Saturday PM was our first visit to Seasons 52. Ambiance, menu options, waitstaff's service, food preparation and presentation all were superb. Plus, menu pricing was reasonable. We'll be back."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Was very pleasantly surprised - the outside of the building does not lend itself any favours but do not judge a book by its cover! The service was very friendly and attentive and the food exceeded expectation. Reasonably priced for the quality of good. Loved the mini puddings too - perfect end to the meal!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I had not expected to enjoy a chain restaurant, i anticipated competence, professionalism but not passion. In facet it was so good we had lunch and dinner there. The food was excellent, a good menu and cooked with flair and interest. The service charming and approachable. The wines by the glass were tasty, distinctive and well chosen. I had to send one back, it was dealt with without demur. Finally the music was very good. Normally I hate live music whilst eating, sometimes to the extent of having to leave. In this case I stayed and even chatted with the piano player."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Having enjoyed wonderful meals at both Seasons 52 in Costa Mesa and Century City, my friend and I decided it was time to check out your Santa Monica location. As expected, we were not disappointed! We loved the lunch we ordered this past Monday and that, coupled with the fact that we received excellent service while enjoying the ambience of the restaurant, you may be sure that we plan to return in the very near future. So nice to have 'you' on the West Side!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "I only get to Seasons when I visit FL and was happy to see one open up in Santa Monica during a visit. A New Zealand venison chop and venison ragout on the winter menu was a real treat."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "No dish over 475 calories but you'd never know it from the taste & presentation. Live piano music in the evening. Lots of little dishes to share too. Great patio overlooking the ocean. Valet parking if you don't want to stroll a couple blocks from city parking lot."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I love the idea of a lower calorie menu, but the food was very disappointing. I visited when the restaurant first opened and thought I would give it one more try, but I have no desire to return. My glass of wine was the best thing I had and we were sharing, so I was able to taste a number of dishes. Too bad...but maybe the tourists will keep them busy."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "Food and service excellent We had to chage reservation time twice, once the day before and the second time because of traffic. No problem. We had someplace else to go close by after dinner. Valet allowed us to leave our car there. No extra charge. Excellent experience all around."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Food was flavorless Food did not come out together Kitchen had issues"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food was outstanding and the service, once we were seated, was great. However, it was getting seated that was the challenge. We arrived on time for a reservation and checked in with the hostess. She told us it would just be a minute to get our table ready. 20 minutes later, after at least a dozen other parties had come and gone, and we were still waiting, she came back over to us and asked, "Are you waiting for a table?" My eyes popped open and my jaw dropped, but my boyfriend had the presence of mind to politely say yes. I think she remembered us then but didn't say anything. Other than that, the restaurant was lovely. I'd be more eager to go back if not for that terrible first impression."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Went to the restaurant for our daughters 17th birthday and we were pleased in every aspect with our experience. When I asked for a wine recommendation for the venison the server brought two choices for me to try. The desserts were just the right size. All their dishes do not exceed a certain calorie count so you can have a great meal and eat healthy at the same time."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "This special combines my love for wine tasting with Season 52's wonderful flatbreads...and it is a great bargain to boot! For $15 ($20 if you choose the more upscale red wines) you get to taste 3 delicious wines along with your choice of a flatbread from the menu. Once you have finished your flight of wine, also included is a full glass of your favorite of the three! Again, all of this is $15-20...a great deal for wine and a nosh."

  • "This is my second time at this restaurant and I would certainly go back. Our server was well informed and attentive. We had a great seat in the window, with a view of the action on Ocean Ave. Food was quite good; one meal (steak) was overcooked, but overall still good. The ambience is lovely; piano player, great atmosphere. Nice place for a romantic meal or with friends. Also has a nice bar for a drink."

  • "This way my first time dining at this location but have been to the Costa Mesa locale several times and have always been happy with the food and service at Seasons 52."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I was hoping for a better food experience at seasons 52, given other diners comments. The restaurant is quite lovely, reasonably quiet, and the service quite attentive. I'll try it again; perhaps they had an off night."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "I have rarely had the pleasure of such extraordinary service. We went for lunch here - with my older parents as well as my teenage children. When serving such a diverse group, special requests can be daunting. I have never seen such accommodating and gracious service. Three of us ordered the flat bread wine flight special (an amazing deal). The wines were wonderful (and fun) and the flat breads delicious. We also ordered the salmon, filet and veggie plate. All beautifully prepared and served. I only wished we lived closer but when in Santa Monica again, I will definitely be back."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "The food was excellent. The service was good albeit a bit slow at times. The servers were very polite and careful. We did not care for the live entertainment. The noise level was fairly high without it and much too noisy with it. One of our problems was that we were seated in a booth right next to the entertainer. He had not arrive yet when we were seated, or we would have asked for another booth."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Our party of 22 in Tampa loved this place a couple of years ago, so I booked a party of six in the new-ish Santa Monica edition. It was pretty good, but appears to be still on their shake-out cruise. One attendee's salad was so salty that she sent it back. The rest of us enjoyed our various entrees. Everyone liked the desserts. We asked for a separate dining area, which they honored. However, there were a couple of times when the waiter was nowhere in sight for quite awhile. The manager did, however, visit our party and seemed sincere in asking for our opinions."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "How is it possible that every single thing on this menu is incredibly tasty and still checks in at less than 475 calories? We had two different flatbreads (like a supremely thin gourmet pizza) that were delicious, filling and creatively constructed - each of which was under that caloric limit. Add to that a delicious sushi roll (although we like ours a little spicier the taste and presentation were very good) and a couple of mini desserts and it made for a wonderful meal. Terrific service and a wonderful environment - reasonably quiet, comfortable seating and great design - will make us regulars there."

  • "We couldn't find a place to eat on Valentines Day. We were able to get a table here. We were very pleasantly surprised by the great food and good service. Stacy was very friendly and we loved our food. The scallops were the best we've ever had. Every item on the menu is not more than 475 calories and they use fresh, local ingredients whenever possible"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Valentines Day was great, partly due to the great food, service, and atmosphere at Seasons 52. Personal service was there, but not too much. The food's presentation and taste was excellent. And the price was spot-on."
