Absolutely the best scallops I have had. My wife had the salmon and it was delicious too. The best service and overall experience we have had in a long time. Chris is the waiter to ask for, for sure! You will not be disappointed.

Usually our "go to" restaurant for special events like birthdays. This experience was not really good due to the quality of the food. We had to return one of the fillets because it was significantly and obviously over cooked and the plate was just a mess. A second dish, shrimp and grits, was good but the serving size was very small. On another plate we were shorted the requested side. Finally the scallops were over cooked. Really disappointing experience overall and has me thinking something has changed at the restaurant...perhaps a new chef or new management. Now for the good news - Our primary server was really good and very personable. She went out of her way to help resolve the issue with the fillet and we appreciated her efforts. They also did a great job acknowledging our daughters birthday which again was greatly appreciated. We will chalk this trip up to a bad night for the kitchen and we will go back and hopefully have the type experience we are accustom to having.

My wife and I were there for a Friday night date. We were seated quickly thanks to open table, but unfortunately our waiter seemed uninterested in what we wanted. He only came over to tell us his suggestions bring our drinks, no refills, bring our food, then bring our check.

The chicken was barely warm and extremely chewy. But we couldn’t ask for it to be warmed because our waiter never returned. When I told him of our issue. He said it was because it was the end of the night, but he would let the chef know.

He offered us a drink on the house, which was kind, but honestly I just wanted my food to taste equal, or better, than something off of a food truck.

Balck bean soup was ok, but if you say it comes with lime crema, then I should taste the lime. Bacon was also unobservered visually or taste-wise. Handline Tuna cooked to med rare should be served on a warmed plate-food probably. My fish was cold. Mint tabouli was ok. All needed acid, ie lemon. Finally, if it's served MR then why not present a ponzu/wasabi dipping sauce on the side? It's about flavor/ bold taste. Cold fish, I could have ordered the salad...

Not sure...the food was not what I expected. It had been a while since I was there and the last time it was pretty good. One of the guests in our party had to change entrees; most everyone agreed the food was rather on the bland side this time. Healthy is OK, if that's what is requested, but when you (I) do fine dining, I'm personally not looking for healthy but focused so much on healthy but looking for taste. However, kudos to the shrimp/grits dish and the stuffed mushrooms.

We really loved our experience, it’s a very well run location. The food was great, the ambience was so nice our table was in a great location. My biggest pet peeve is walking into a restaurant and not being warmly greeted but the hosts and the manager (I believe) were standing up at the front and immediately and warmly greeted us and off the bat made us feel so nice. Many places don’t offer this kind of service upon arrival and it was just very nice. I would recommend anyone to go here because it’s an amazing atmosphere!

Walked out on the meal. We were seated 20 min after the reservation. After 1.5 hours, and many promises of “I am sure it is almost ready” our meal still had not been served. The kitchen appeared to be putting out food, but it was just piling up. Servers were not serving. We spoke to the manager and left. 2nd time this happened to us. I am not sure if I will go back.

If you are celebrating your birthday this is the place to go. We had no idea they Would make our honored guest feel so very special. We were in a smaller back room that really helped with noise level. We will surely ask for that next time.

I came here for my engagement party. We had 20 people dining with us, but it was super easy to make a reservation. Most places won’t take reservations on Saturdays OR more than 15 people without an event fee (on any date) so this place was perfect for us! We had a single server and she did her job VERY well, although we understood that such a large party would take more effort. They gave us free champagne for a toast and also took our picture to let our friends and family sign. The staff is 100% devoted to our pleasure and needs. I’ve been coming to this restaurant for many years and I won’t stop now. Nobody from our party had a complaint. I would recommend this restaurant for for everyone in the area, whether you’re on your lunch break alone or you are having a celebration. 10/10!

The food taste great and our server was fantastic. We were unfortunately seated near the kitchen even though we had a reservation using the open table app. It was very loud, I could barely speak to my wife during dinner. There were also several families with screaming kids seated around us. We spent around $95 including a shared appetizer, our entres, 1 cocktail, 2 waters, and those tiny(although good tasting) deserts.

We have dined here many many times since they opened some years ago. We have enjoyed many an appetizer, entrees, sides and desserts from every seasonal menu. However, today was quite disappointing. There were two of us dining today and both of our meals were served at room temperature or even cool, although we’d had each of these entrees on prior occasions and they were served at a proper temperature. I will say the side option of beets was the only item which was warm.
Had this been my first experience at Seasons, I would probably not have returned, especially considering all of the excellent alternatives in our area.

Typically we love this place. However this last time we went they were running 45 minutes to an hour past the reservation times. The service was ok for the most part, but you could tell they were spread thin and were rushing. Food was still tasty, which was the only real saving grace for our experience this time.

We were celebrating our 1year anniversary of meeting. It was our first date at the bar. I love this place and of course the only thing missing is the piano playing in the middle of the bar that made the bar such a different spot for bham…. miss it terribly. But still one our favorite places. We will be back of course.

Our Valentine evening was ruined by this experience. Our reservations were for 7 p.m. We were told that they were running a little behind but would get us in soon. We waited until 7:47 before we were seated, exhausted and standing among a lot of people who had not made reservations who were apparently allowed to be seated. Our waiter was apologetic and very attentive. My wife ordered shrimp and grits and I ordered the filet mignon. When our order was finally delivered to the table, the shrimp had NO grits. It was covered with a tomato paste but not at all what we ordered. We complained and our meals were comped but our evening was ruined.

We took a couple with us to celebrate his wife's birthday. The restaurant really knows how to make a birthday special. The food and service was first class. They were very busy and we only had to wait 30 min over our reservation time. The restaurant did inform when we got there. They keep us updated and found us when our table was ready. I highly recommend sitting at the bar if you have to wait. Great bar for people watching and the menu. We are already planning out next trip. A must go to.

Shola was very attentive to our needs and did a wonderful job explaining the menu. Our drinks never went empty and she never passed our table without checking on us. Thank you Shola for your outstanding service. Magi also checked on us multiple times to make sure our date night experience was one we would remember.

It was a wonderful experience. We were celebrating our anniversary and told them to put us at a table in the bar since It was Valentine's weekend. We wanted to linger and didn't want to mess up the flow!
We were seated there and didn't expect any special treatment because we were in the bar area. We were given a small glass of champagne to celebrate which was Soo nice! THEN a chef came out and gave us an amuse-bouche of tuna. It was a super- nice thing to do. We love the atmosphere and the menu selections! If there were any negatives, It would only be that the scallops were very small so they were cooked a bit long and were therefore dried out. The rest of the meal was perfection!

I would recommend but there are a few other's I'd recommend before Seasons 52. We went when y'all 1st opened and it was amazing, we were wowed. The food was definitely good this time but not like before. Our server was sweet and offered us a free toast since we were celebrating a birthday but we don't drink so we felt a bit guilty for refusing.
