    This is my second time dining at Season's Bistro and again, the food was awesome. Based on the service and the quality of the food served, I will continue to patronize Season's. By the way, the Owner/Executive Chef stopped by our table and answered questions regarding the menu. The food was prepared exactly as he described. Live in Atlanta but will drive to the Square to eat here!

    I found this restaurant on line, when I typed in "best steaks in S. Atlanta". I booked a reservation immediately after reading the reviews. When we arrived we were blown away St the quaintness of this neighborhood gem off the Square. There were tables draped with linen. Appropriate and accurate place settings and a very patient and unique wait staff. We ordered the Ribeye and it was massive, yet DELICIOUS! The marbling was just enough and the flavor was nice and robust. I will be back.

    Season's is one of our favorite restaurants. They always try to seat us at our favorite table and the service is very good. The food and entertainment is also very good. We oftentimes see 10-15 other people we know when dining at this restaurant, so it is starting to feel "cozy" to us (which is good).

    If you find yourself - or if you happen to live - in the McDonough area, this is the place to go. We went early on a Saturday, so we missed the live music. The food was very good, some basics done very well and a few inventive dishes that were tasty! A definite gem in the Southern suburbs. I am told the place gets loud 'n lively when the music starts, but we found it only moderately noisy and had great conversation space.

    I love the historic décor and the food was good, brought friends that I have not seen in a long time to have a nice dinner, all was good until the music started. We could not have a conversation and frankly the guy was not very good. I spent $220.00 on three people and could not wait to leave. I loved everything about it until the guy on stage started to play and it all went down hill from there. Would love to come back if this ever changes.

    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...

    Dined on 3/22/2014
    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.

    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.

    Dined on 2/10/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.
