Diner Reviews
  • "We have a long-time friend who comes to visit yearly. He's a gourmet cook, and we thought dinner at Seasons Bistro would be a wonderful dinner out for the three of us. And it was! The ambience was great, it was quiet on a Monday night, it was GREAT that it wasn't a long drive to get to a top-notch restaurant, and the food was excellent. Our friend commented that "the kitchen was outstanding." Our only slightly negative comment would be that it seemed to take a long time for our cocktails to come to the table, and it wasn't a busy night. Otherwise, we loved the time we were given for cocktails, appetizers, entrée, and one dessert to share - never felt rushed and enjoyed every bite! We DEFINITELY recommend Seasons Bistro to others!!"

  • "This was our first time at Seasons Bistro and we had a wonderful time. The shrimp and grits were spicy and smokey and cooked to perfection and my fiance's shrimp and rosoto made a nice paring when we swapped bites. I think they should pair the two dishes as an app. Great vibe and feel to the room and the music was slow and low volume and did not disturb the meal and we were closest to the stage. Worth checking out and we will be back for sure..."

  • "We took two friends who had not been on a Saturday and the service was extremely slow. It took us over 30 minutes to get our lobster bisque and spring rolls. We ordered 4 appetizers as our dinner (Tapas style) and our friends ordered salads with blackened chicken. It took 40 minutes from when we received our first course. To make things worse, they brought ours out and then our friends salads 10 minutes later. (the chicken was not blackened) Our food was very good. The scallops were well prepared. The Bistro Steak appetizer was wonderful. Skylar was our waitress and was terrific but kept having to apologize for the wait. Kitchen must have been on vacation. I guess we will continue going into Atlanta for fine dining. Too bad."

  • "I especially am pleased that Open Table made the reservation and gave us good location. My brother's band, The Drugstore Cowboys, was playing that night and I especially wanted to be in a good area o see and hear them. Good cheesecake. I am vegetarian and the menu is packed with meat to difficult for me to have a meal there but I do order their sides which are good."

  • "Familiar menu, but it and service were weak tonight. App- filet on toasted(?)- Can't remember what menu said(expected bruschetta style)- cooked as requested- on untoasted bread. Bisque served cold, sent back- returned(too quickly) only luke warm at best. Four entrees, two salmon cooked as requested, veg OK, requested mashed potatoes not hot.; Shrimp risotto excellent- clearly the hit of the table; Angel Hair Alfredo/Shrimp served with another pasta(not previously explained) very under sauced. Rolls- sweet- should be a rustic sliced bread or rolls in this setting. Dessert (comped due to soup)- very good(Thin mint Chzcake and Creme Brulee) Server poured entire bottle at first pour! Did not return requested left-overs. Salesman he is not."

  • "I love this place a lot! OMG...the food is amazing and I had just about everything on the menu, and its all delicious! This is by far my favorite place for a date night with the hubby, amazing food, and a staff that treats you like your family. We always feel very relaxed and comfortable at Seasons. This restaurant is a must try for all! :) Thank You, Phyllis & Tom Masten"

  • "The wife had the seafood pasta and loved it. I had the r ibeye and it was just ok. However I did have the tuna appetizers and it was to die for. I should have order three of them for dinner. The half price drinks from the bar was definitely a plus from 5 to 6."

  • "Four of us girls finally got together for dinner and drinks. Three if us drove down from Atl and met out other friend who lives close Seasons Bistro. We reserved a spot near the music and were shown to a great table. We shared wine and a few appetizers before our entrees. Everyone enjoyed their choices. The music was amazing with plenty of appreciation from the guests at their tables. Paul and Felton are basically magic on that stage. We were able sit close while still enjoying our conversation with one another. Service, food and music were so good we've decided to leave the perimeter more often and head to McDonough."

  • "Season's Bistro has a great location and exceptional facility, but over the years has struggled to offer consistent service and memorable food. While there are times when expectations are exceeded, more frequently one is disappointed. This past Saturday our visit was specifically to hear Felton & Paul perform, but right off the bat I was told there was no wine list, as it was "in transition". For a place like Season's, this is completely unacceptable."

  • "My wife and I received great service from both the waiter and the bartender. There is a decent wine selection, and the appetizers were ordered (pot stickers and spring rolls) were exellent. I had fish tacos, and I was very disappointed. The fish was prepared as deep fried blocks of fish (both dark and white meat) and not prepared like I thought it would be (broiled or baked). I was not even sure what type of fish I was being served. The blocks of meat were dry on the outside and the inside; however, the other trimmings and the mango salsa was delicious. My wife ordered the shrimp and risotta. She was not exactly blown away by her dish either. We will return to this place, because the food is typically better and the service is always great."

  • "Overall good diinig experience, however the food portions did not match the price. Food was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. Ambiance is less than you would expect. There is not much competition around town, However with some upgrades it could be a destination resturant."

  • "My husband and I dined for Valentines Day, and we enjoyed it very much. Limited menu for that night but the section was great and well thought out. We have eaten there on other night s and have always had a good time and the food has always been great!"

  • "The food was hit or miss, unfortunately. We had the Sambal Shrimp and Lobster Bisque for appetizers, both were quite delicious. However, our main courses were a bit disappointing. My wife ordered the Capri Tuna which was supposed to be "quickly pan seared" but turned out to be pretty thoroughly cooked. It was also quite salty and she did not care for it at all. I ordered the Mixed Seafood Alfredo. The mussels tasted spoiled and should have been tasted prior to serving. The shrimp, however, was perfectly cooked. The alfredo sauce was also a bit bland for my taste. We split the white chocolate cheesecake for dessert and that was superb - definitely worth going back for. We'll try it again based on the strength of apps and dessert."

  • "On our 54th Anniv we looked with anticipation to celebrating at Seasons. Our server tried very hard to please us in any way she could. It is sad the cook did not care we would never return due to not only his attitude but his service. Our steaks came out well done (we ordered medium rare), warmed over cold sides. We returned the plates, and the cook gave our server a hard time. He had to use a thermometer and found he was wrong....however he shuts the grill off and 45 min later he had not even begun to cook our meal. When $30 steaks are ordered yes I do expect more."

  • "Loved this place...I drove down from Atlanta where we all know you can find an assortment of amazing restaurants. But Seasons was a pleasant surprise. The food was affordable but bistro-quality and the ambiance was both trendy and laid back. I felt like I could relax and just be myself. The patrons and wait staff were all very neighborly, and the service was outstanding. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone within a few hours drive."

  • "This is my third visit to The Seasons Bistro in quaint, vibrant downtown McDonough, GA. The atmosphere, the service and the food are outstanding. Located in a renovated space with brick walls, subdued lighting and muted colors, it's an intimate setting for couples and groups. I ordered the brussel spouts as my vegetable this time and they were to die for. I know a lot of people are not fond of this veggie but, as our server said, this version of baby brussels turns non-believers into believers! Delicious! Will visit again when I'm in the area."

  • "New Years Eve 6 PM. Place was not busy yet. Sat us at a high top. Asked to move to another table. Mass confusion followed. Had to make a second request to get moved. Fried shrimp appetizer was not very good. Lobster bisque was warm. Out of Rib Eye so I ordered the Filet. Wife had chicken. Entrees came 30 minutes after appetizer. Wine was good. Finished before entrees came. Would have liked a second bottle but was never offered. Had to request water after our entrees came. Server was smug and slow. Complained of being over sat. Not my problem. Removed wife's plate and she was still eating. Not a good move on our anniversary. Took so long that we did not have time for dessert. Got carry out from another restaurant after the movie."

  • "It took 1.5 hours before we were served due to the steak having to cook. The table of customers next to us (which arrived about 20 after we did) received their appetizer, entree, drinks, paid their bill and left while we were still waiting for our entrees. Our waiter was very polite and kept apologizing in hopes that we did not have a bad first time experience. When the steak arrived, my food was fine but the vegetables that came with the steak had been reheated. The manager did not offer any incentive for the long wait until asked, then offered a free dessert, which we declined. We then asked if our appetizer could be complimentary and the manager agreed to that."

  • "The service was slow at best.. Very unattentive. Food took almost an hour to arrive after our arrival at the restaurant.. It was barely warm... Just not exciting at all... Entertainment was best part of the night. We had been here before and had a good meal -- had guest in town and thought we would go again..."

  • "Online reservation with request for a particular booth. When we arrived, we could see no one else seated in the restaurant. Hostess attempted to seat us at a table, and we reminded her of our request made online . She validated it, but told us the booth we requested already had another couple in it. Hostess did not try to remedy the situation by asking the other couple to move (since she did confirm the booth reservation) or offer a % off the bill or something comped for dinner, which might have taken the sting out of the denial of the booth request. We were seated at a table directly across from the booth that we had requested. Not pleasant to watch someone else enjoy the place we had reserved after scouting it out during a previous visit."

  • "From the moment my wife and I walked in, we fell in love. Seasons Bistro is the perfect little restaurant for a romantic getaway, without having to drive to the northside of Atlanta. The atmosphere is low-key, the cocktails to die for, and the food is spectacular. The menu has something for every taste, and this isn't your typical southside restaurant. I found the service to be very prompt, helpful and refreshingly pleasant. If you are looking for a place to take the wife or girlfriend, special occasion, or even just a cocktail after work, this is McDonough's best kept secret. I hope to have Seasons Bistro on my list of plans for several occasions in 2014!!!"

  • "My husband and I love Season's Bistro, especially when they have live music. Our most recent visit featured David and Melissa who were fabulous! The food is always great - highly recommend the chef's special shrimp with butternut squash and risotto dish. The kitchen was a bit slow, but only because there was a large group in the private party room; normally the wait is better than average."
