The food was good, but steak undercooked. I ate at the bar. The service was good on the 3 or 4 occasions that I was able to get someone’s attention. Most of the time I was ignored.

While I adore Seasons 52, this time things were a tad off. The service was friendly but lengthy and we ended up looking arond to find our server to get our check rung through. While we were asked if we wanted dessert, the traditional presentation was skipped, and we had indicated that one in our party was new to the restaurant.
On the other hand our food came to the table at once time (which was nice), although one soup was lacking and came the next round. The food was lovely, and again our server was quite nice himself. It's just that things didn't feel as wonderful as they usually do. Just a bit of pacing and I am sure the next visit will be back up to snuff.

We sat 6 in a large round banquet and it felt private and intimate. We had 4 courses each and cocktails and raves over the food and drinks all weekend. Great value, interesting choices and flavorful food all ‘round. This restaurant has been and continues to be one of our go to places in Birmingham. We recommend it to everyone. Our family from San Diego, CA are going to find one near them!

I always enjoy Seasons 52, the food is great. Unfortunately the service was less so. I made a reservation for 14 , 2 weeks prior.
When we arrived , our group was waiting in the bar. Our reservation was for 7:30. At nearly 8pm, I went to the hostess desk to ask about our table. She was rude and seemed irritated that I was asking . She said the table was still being set. A manager then told her that the table " had been ready". The hostess then said she would seat us in a few minutes. Seems weird if the table "has been ready". The hostess came to get us at the bar a few minutes later and took us to two round tables that had been put together. It was less than ideal, and crowded. They clearly were not ready for our party. The rest of the meal was uneventful. I will likely not make reservations there for a large party again. Thankfully the food was good as always!

Our food was delicious and the service provided by our waiter "Mike" was excellent. The only minor issue was that I ordered my salad dressing on the side but it came on the salad. The reason for ordering salad dressing on the side is to control the amount put on the salad so the greens are not bathing in the dressing and other items included are not overwhelmed. There wasn't too much on my salad to send it back but a little more than I prefer. Overall, it was a nice dining experience.

We eat at Seasons 52 quite often. Especially nice has been how special occasions have been recognized in the past. We noted that we were dining for a special occasion, but it was not even acknowledged.
As always, the food and service were to be commended.

Amanda was our server. She was attentive and very cheerful.
We both had the filet. I’m a rare girl while my hubby is well done. Both were cooked to perfection and able to be cut with table knives. Though we love their Yukon mashed potatoes, we asked for double seasonal veggies. Instead of the boring broccoli cauliflower mix we seem to find in most places, this was squash, zucchini, green beans, sugar snap peas and toy box tomatoes. And pretty hefty servings of this perfectly seasoned mix. Great evening!

We were a party of 9 for lunch and the food was good as always. 8 of us had just about finished our meal when the Greek salad with grilled shrimp was delivered to the 9th diner, NOT good! We were very disappointed with that aspect of the experience.

I had asked for the special room on the left and if not a banquette, but there was a private party in there. The restaurant was not busy and we were escorted to a round table toward the back but not a banquette which would have been cosier to visit with relatives from out of town.

Everyone ordered something different from our table of five. I had the tuna tartare and it was a work of art needless to say absolutely divine! The service was good but not as professional as I've received in the past. Our waiter assumed that my mother wanted another martini although she didn't order it and brought my daughter another coke which wasn't ordered as well. It would be a great idea to keep a water pitcher on the table as I drink a lot and had to wait.

The service was horrible. I had to ask for kids menus, kids cups, had to return menus to the hostess (she was great) b/c no one took them. No refills of water or ever asked if we needed anything. Tried to order 2 apps and were told cauliflower was out, changed to hummus and they were out of that as well. This is a 7 PM dinner. Food was mediocre. I do want to give props for the hostess...she was very nice and hospitable.

After delivering our meal - which was very good- the waitress disappeared. Turns out there was a large party she was responsible for and they got all her attention. We had to wait a long time to get our bill.

We had a wonderful time and our waiter was fantastic! She was always there when we needed something and brought it quickly. She also did a great job timing the entrees after the appetizers so we never felt rushed.

The hostess that greeted us was very welcoming and even accommodated an unexpected arrival with our party quickly and graciously.

It was the most enjoyable time we have had out in a long time thank you to everyone.

We have eaten here numerous times. Today was very average. My lemon ricotta ravioli were so covered in red pepper and micro greens I could hardly find the ravioli. My husbands short ribs on grits was a very small portion. My dad seemed to enjoy his scallops and his friend thought the shrimp and grits were good. We usually really enjoy a meal here but today it just was not quite as good. Can’t really put it in to words

My wife and I love this restaurant but we were both very disappointed with our last visit. We arrived about 5-7 min prior to our reservation time and checked in with the hostess. She acknowledged our reservation and indicated we would be seated soon. After 20 min and several other groups being seated, I asked the hosted why we had not been seated yet. She checked the records and indicated she had lost our reservation. We were seated a few minutes later. I informed the manager of the incident. No action was taken.

Unfortunately the poor service continued during the meal. The waiter did a very good job but there was a 45 min delay from the time we finished our salad and the delivery of the entree. The waiter was apologetic and explained their was a big group being serviced by the kitchen. All along we witnessed tables near us getting serviced even though they came in after us.

The food was as good as ever but the service will cause us to consider other options in the area before we return here.
