Diner Reviews
  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Go to South Coast Plaza S-52 freq since opening. Best in all respects. Santa Monica is a pale copy. Not saying this cuz of bias towards SCP, it's just that I know the S-52 drill, and SM "ain't it!" SM had "lost" kids at front desk not up to the task. I called ahead 2x to honor reservation saying we were stuck in traffic. Got "whatever". Didn't even ask our name. Server seated us w/o even looking us in eye; busy eyeing a pretty girl. Mgr & servers collected nearby often & gossiped abt guests--making fun of them! REALLY? Server cont'd to be short, busy, brusk. Asked for more "chips" for hummus. After a wait, he brought them to table wrapped in a napkin and just dropped them on table w/o a word. Lots of other little no-no's, but no room here."

  • "The flat bread offered with everything as well as the cedar plank salmon was way too salty!!"

  • "I have been here for lunch and dinner several times. It's great! It is now one of my Go To spots and I often recommend it. Nice piano bar too!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Love the IDEA of this place....seasonal freshness, menu changing accordingly. Along with the flat breads, the individual desserts in little glasses are the bomb. Just about 5 bites, and who needs more than that after a big lunch? The service was very friendly and accommodating. All in all, it was worth the drive from San Juan Capistrano."

  • "great food, great wine list, be sure to sit outside."

  • "Excellent prosciutto asparagus flat bread with my yummy cocktail. Both my husband's crab wedge salad and my wild river salmon were delicious. Loved that the desserts were small and only $3 each."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The food (appetizers, salads, entrees) were all very good. The service was not up to the quality of the food. Inattentive, pushed the non-refill drinks and ignored the refill ones. Did not clear table or replace dirty silverware consistently for the table. We had a large party but it was an early dinner and the restaurant was not busy."

  • "I am a devotee of my local Seasons 52, but this particular dinner was wide of the standard set in previoius visits in a variety of locations. I brought 2 guests who had never eaten at a Seasons 52 before (yes, there are still such rare creatures!), and contrary to prior visits, no one exclaimed, "Ummm, this is delicious!" when their meal came. Neither did I when I ventured beyond my favorite cedar planked salmon to try the trout. Equally important (I'm downplaying it--I live for dessert), my dessert was uninspiring and room temperature, which seemed inappropriate for the whipped cream and mousse. I hope this was just an off night. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The service was very good, but the food was very mediocre. Given it's location on Ocean Ave, I expected much better. There's so many other better restaurants in SM that there's no reason to go back here."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "We used to go there when it was "I Cugini" because we loved the appetizers during Happy Hour. We rediscovered it when it opened as Seasons 52 and we were delighted with how they changed the layout of the bar and dining area. The atmosphere is elegant and inviting. The live music is excellent, ideal for listening and soft enough to allow for conversation. The service is excellent and the wine list is very complete. The menu is wonderful, highly sophisticated and low on calories. The tuna tartare is amazing and the flatbread pizzas are unique. We highly recommend this restaurant."
