Our bookclub met for it’s annual Christmas dinner. 11 people at a rectangular table was not conducive to a group mingling. Good was okay. Nice wine selection

The roasted broccoli rabe was tough. Otherwise, my sea scallops were delicious as usual.

Our server forgot to bring my cappuccino but that was ok since I was already finished with dessert. I would suggest that you have the servers ask about getting coffee started prior to bringing out desserts. Since the desserts are small (and we love them that way!), we’re finished with eating them long before coffee can be enjoyed with them at the same time.

Ambiance was ruined when a very large party was seated next to us. Also, we were seated near the parking lot and there’s a shiny silver thing outside that car lights kept shining on (and into our eyes). Perhaps there’s a way to cover that with something that won’t reflect the light so badly?

We love Seasons 52 though and dine there fairly often. We invited friends to join us this time that had never been before.

Unexpectedly quiet evening -- which lent to easy conversation. Server was attentive at the right level. Menu options had many choices and the selections we made were very much enjoyed by both of us.

We went on Thanksgiving day and it was really busy and our table wasn't ready for 15 minutes, but the hostess made it right by giving us 2 flatbreads. All the food was delicious and the waitress was very attentive. This is our first time coming to Seasons 52 and we enjoyed it very much. We will be back in the future.

The Thanksgiving meal was exceptional. Couldn't believe the $29.95 price. There was enough food to take home for another meal. The waitress was attentive and knowledgable. Will definitely go to this restaurant again.

Amazing lunchtime dining experience for our small group of 5 on Thanksgiving. Food was healthy and delicious. Couldn’t believe they offered regular menu and special holiday menu. My dad enjoyed the salmon, while the rest of us had turkey. Mini Indulgence desserts were truly the cherry on top of a fabulous meal. Staff was exceptional. Highly recommend Season’s 52!

Nice atmosphere. Service is attentive and competent. Food is good but not as special as it should be for the price level. Therefore the value is just average.

Although I had been to Seasons 52 several times, my two dining companions had never been. We all had a splendid meal, outstandingly unique cocktails and delightful desserts. They were very impressed with the freshness of the food, the quality of the dining experience, and as we meet once a month, we have decided we will try Seasons 52 during every season in 2020.

All food, from apps to dessert, were perfect. The best part was, unlike most restaurants, the martinis and cosmos were filled to the top (brought in a shaker). We had a great waiter (I think his name was Justin - memory isn't what it used to be) who made the dining experience even better. Would definitely recommend to friends and family!

Excellent food, ambience and service. My wife had the Chilean sea bass and I had the lamb. Both were cooked to perfection. The decor in this place keeps us coming too. It’s so high end it enhances the dining experience. We always have desserts here. They are delicious and sized to give you just an after dinner delicacy without the calories. We had our kids with us, aged 4 and 2 and their flatbreads go down remarkably well with them. Forgot to mention we are somewhat regulars if it weren’t for the children.

Awesome service. Thank you Aaron and all the waitstaff, hostesses, and chefs. We booked a table for 16 and 22 people showed up for a work get together. Usual turn out 8-10. They saw the unique menu and wanted to give it a try. The staff were able to accommodate the unexpected number and made all feel welcome. We have vegans, pescatarian, carnivores and foodies and all were happy with their entrees. Will definitely be back as all the entrees looked delicious. I had the best lamb I have had (3 course meal). Prices were great for portions. Also all entrees have calorie count beside them. Good wine and drink selection. The lavender honey sangria was awesome. The lavender sprig was a great touch and went around the table for everyone's olfactory enjoyment! Thank you for making work get together awesome!!

We usually enjoy Seasons 52 but this experience was not great. The good parts- a pleasant server who kept the water glasses full, the chilled tuna appetizer and the creamy polenta side dish. The not so good- The lasagne roll dish, recommended by the server, was seriously overcooked. The noodles were too hard to eat. The truffle honey Brussels sprouts didn’t taste like either and were served cold. Just not good. The roasted cauliflower had a nice sauce but was barely cooked, not roasted. one person never got his lobster bisque. Server- “I didn’t write it down!” She also didn’t seem to notice that we didn’t eat most of the food. As she cleared the burned lasagne, I pointed it out. She said, “Yeah I’m sorry.” That was it. We never saw a manager or we would have expressed our disappointment. We wouldn’t eat here again.

We mentioned we were there to celebrate my parents wedding anniversary. They staff could not have been more accommodating. They brought out a complementary app, which was also gluten free so my mother could have it. We had a six month old with us and the staff would stop by and say hello to the baby. Overall the experience was very positive and friendly.

Dominique, our server, was excellent!! Not only was he efficient with filling beverages, etc., but he had a great personality and sense of humor that made our experience so much fun!! Three of the four of us are 24/7 sole caregivers to close family members. Dominique just made our day! I was good to laugh over delicious food in a beautiful setting.

We had an awesome experience. It was our first time there and we were celebrating my husband’s birthday. Our server brought the table little tastes of champagne, as well as little crab cake bites on the house because it was his birthday. The food was fantastic and our server, Lydia, was the best. We ended the meal with their little shot glass desserts, and a birthday card from the staff. Will definitely go back soon!

My husband and I strongly recommend Seasons 52 restaurant. Everything was excellent -- the food, waiter, ambience, etc. We definitely expect to return numbers of times!!

Copy of the note I sent directly to the restaurant:
Our experience at Seasons 52 was a once in a lifetime!! I was given the wrong entree -- a mistake that easily could happen in a restaurant the size of yours. Instead of trying to cover up the problem, the waiter and manager each personally apologized for the error and repeatedly offered to provide us with extras, like an additional glass of wine. Instead, we were comped both of our entrees and our wine. That level of care and concern has never happened to us before, and we are inveterate restaurant goers. The food was excellent, the atmosphere ideal for a romantic dinner, and the staff superb. Thank you so much for a delightful evening!!
