First time for my husband and I visiting the Dock restaurant. Our waitress Tiffany was amazing! Our compliments to the chef! We had grilled octopus for appetizer, halibut & pork chops all was amazing! All around I cannot wait to come back and visit and go to the restaurant again!

Drone start to finish a wonderful experience. We were seated right at our reservation time and arrived at the table to find an anniversary card signed by all servers. We both ordered the Prime Rib and as always was perfectly “medium rare”. The “signature” creamed corn was wonderful as usual. Creamed spinach is one of the best I have had. The fine meal was greatly complemented by the outstanding service provided by our server. This will remain one of our “go to” places when we want a fine meal out.

The food is so good, haven't had a solid steak cooked to perfect medium rare in a while. A great spot, guaranteed great food! It's a bit on the energized louder side with dimmer lighting, but was exactly what we had wanted for the man's birthday dinner. Our server was great, good service and sprinkled more than a generous amount of humor as well. Great spot, definitely coming back!

James was terrific! He made my mom’s 85th birthday very special. The birthday sign, small vase of flowers on the table and champagne toast were festive and much appreciated. He was very attentive too! Everyone enjoyed the food. Seasons 52 is one of our favorite restaurants and we were happy our out of town guests liked it too. We always start with flatbreads. Entrees (pork chop, sea bass, salmon) were all delicious! Loved the special birthday dessert. First time it wasn’t a free dessert shot. That was a really nice touch! Thank you James for everything!

Visiting from Arizona and of course we had to go to Spaghettini!!!! The food is beyond AMAZING!!! From the best Caesar salad ever to the most delicious salmon I’ve ever had. We absolutely believe this is the finest restaurant in the entire Seal Beach area and always make it a point to dine here when we’re back in town. Thank you Spaghettini for never disappointing us!!

Always a good time at Benihana! The kids love the food and the chef’s awesome culinary skills. Gotta love the egg roll, onion volcano, shrimp tail toss, and, my personal fav, the friend rice beating heart. We come here every year to celebrate birthdays. So glad to have it reopened after the pandemic.
