Diner Reviews
  • "Love the food. We have had the same waiter twice and he just doesn't seem to have it together. He's not familiar with drinks or even the wines and his timing for bringing the food out has been messed up both times"

  • "Really enjoyed Seasons 52 in Santa Monica. The restaurant looks great and the food is really tasty. I highly recommend it."

  • "Beautifully presented delicious food, refreshing mocktails for non-drinkers and don't miss the teeny, perfect sized deserts. You cannot beat the ambiance whether inside or out."

  • "This was my first visit to Seasons52. Some friends visiting from Australia asked me if we could go to a restaurant with ocean views. Through Open Table I discovered Seasons52 and we all gave the food, service and ambiance 5 stars. Something that is noteworthy is that they have alternative menus for different diets, among them - vegan, vegetarian, gluten free etc. Being vegan this attracted me to the place and I wasn't disappointed. You must try 1 or more of the desserts, they are served in small glasses and are brought to the table in a display - you just pick the one(s) you want! I would go back here in a heartbeat!!"

  • "We love sitting in the bar area. Live music, fantastic Santa Monica sunset. Disappointing that the restaurant has now made those tables seat yourself. We always make reservations but that doesn't help us anymore :("
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "While the service was great, the food was mediocre. The wild salmon was not fresh and the lamb was not particularly tasty. The pea pods were good though. I had a gin and tonic in the bar before hand - too much tonic, not enough gin. I am positive I will not be coming back."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Four of us ate at Seasons 52 two weeks ago and were delighted with the food. On this visit not one of us had a meal that was worthy of this restaurant, or any quality restaurant. We returned here because of the great experience previously, but were disappointed!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Great food, the filet mignon melted in my mouth, delicious!!! awesome view of Santa Monica beach! Our waiter was a little clumsy and slow to take orders, but since we were not in a hurry it was not a deal breaker."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "It's a rare find when everything is perfect- the waiter, the appetizers, the main meal (the filet can be cut with a spoon!) and the dessert... The wine recommendation was spot on, and the dessert "flight" was out of a dream."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We were a little bit early for our reservation on a Sunday night. They were still able to accommodate us immediately. The staff was warm and welcoming. We enjoyed leisurely cocktails (recommend the Prairie Mule) while viewing the menu. Candice, our server, was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed delicious duck flatbread and an ahi and avocado sushi roll for appetizers. They were delicious. For entrees we had filet mignon with a lobster tail side (lobster tail is a bargain at $10.95) and branzino. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. We actually had two desserts each, because they all looked delicious. When our check arrived, the server announced that she had paid for our desserts. Great customer service. We will definitely return."

  • "We have been to Seasons 52 in Santa Monica and Century City many times. Recently, we had a problem...Our food wasn't ready for a long time. Craig, the manager in Santa Monica, quickly came over and apologized. He took charge of the situation we were more than satisfied. We came again the following week and he remembered us and we got excellent service. He's a great guy who is all about taking care of his customers!! Anyways, what could've been a bad situation immediately got us back as Seasons frequent visitors forever..."

  • "I was looking forward to my first time here but the service was less than mediocre.. Very disappointing because the food was decent (although the seared scallop I had wasn't very much of a sear as it was overcooked). The servers could pay more attention to the customers.. We sat for more than 10 minutes waiting around for someone to come by to at least offer us water to start with.. After they finally brought us the water, we had to flag the waiter again to finally get our orders. There wasn't very much people yet in the restaurant because it was still too early for the dinner crowd so we were so confused by the inattention of the staff. Not so inclined to come back..."

  • "The dineLA menu had a fantastic selection at a great price! The food was plentiful and delicious. Food came in a timely fashion and waiters checked frequently. It wasn't too busy for lunch so it was nice and quiet with a nice oceanside view"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Very happy with our dinner at Seasons, generous portions, good food and an upscale but not stuffy atmosphere. We will definitely be back."

  • "The Roasted Tomato Flatbread and BBQ Chicken Salad were the perfect choices for my lunch on the patio. I loved the combination of fresh vegetables in the salad and the blue cheese crumbles. I especially enjoyed the Meyer lemon dessert and I love the small servings. It made the perfect guilt-free end to our lunch."

  • "Candice, the server, was excellent. Great ocean view from our table. Food was delicious. Manager came to our table to thank us for our first visit -- a very thoughtful gesture!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We very much enjoyed the service and the atmosphere of the restaurant. Everyone there was very nice - we'd been once before six months ago and had a very bad experience with the service, but because of DineLA we decided to give them another chance. We were very happy with the result. Good food. nice people who were eager to please, and a comfortable pleasant atmosphere to eat in. The food was very enjoyable, and the wine list is great. I wish the desserts were a little bigger, but on the whole this is a very nice place to eat - great for everyone, I think. A nice menu with something for everyone, and everything on it that we had was quite yummy. (The seasonal roasted corn in a skillet is fabulous for example, and the flatbread was supberb.)"

  • "We could not believe all of the items were under 475 calories! The service was good and the food was fantastic. This particular location also has a view of the ocean so make a reservation and request outdoor seating!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Food was fine, but not amazing. I did not care for the atmosphere at all. I could have lived with the food if we sat on the patio with a view of the ocean, but the inside space was dark and dated. The service was not good, slow and could almost be described as weird. I had high hopes because I love healthy, seasonal food."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "This place was amazing. I'd say date night, girls night, just hanging out on our own. It was a beautiful restaurant and atmosphere. Great drinks, insane food, and the service was supreme."

  • "the ambiance of this place is truly amazing. we had Great views of the Pacific. The food was outstanding and big portions. Would highly recommended"

  • "Our evening began horribly. We waited 1/2 hour for water and menus. The waiter, when we finally got him to our table, was defensive and inappropriate. We were thinking of leaving, when another waiter came by and said he was our new waiter and how can he help. He was fabulous and saved the night."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We ate at Seasons 52 on Dine LA week. For $35 we each got five full size courses of excellent food rather than the usual three. The flatbread was delicious and the main courses of steak and pork loin, nicely done. Dessert was a choice of one of 8 different mini-parfait glasses brought to the table and described by the waiter. Accompanied by moderate priced excellent wine the dinner was a great success."

  • "We had a birthday dinner for 5 on a Sunday evening. We ate in the room adjacent to the outdoor patio -- a lovely room with one wall open to the outside and with views of the ocean. The service was excellent. Most of the food was outstanding -- flatbreads, very fresh veggies, and great desserts. One person had steak and declared it fabulous. My Copper River salmon was overcooked and dry. One person's rack of lamb was also overcooked. So the salmon and lamb were quite disappointing -- high quality ingredients spoiled by overcooking. We'll go to this restaurant again because of the location, good service and overall good food. But the kitchen needs a bit of help."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Everything from the drinks, to the appetizers to the entrees and dessert were excellent. The service was right on and the outdoor seating made it that much better."

  • "Great atmosphere, the chili was amazing, scallops were cooked perfectly, and you must try the mini deserts! Great organic/GMO free beer selection. It is also in a great location with a view of the ocean and Santa Monica Pier. Only complaint was the server was not as attentive as we would have liked, and they were not very busy when we were there. But the previous server was fantastic, so I will not hold it against them."
