Terrible....just in excusably bad. It took 45 minutes to bring the salads. The waiter brought me the wrong wine, took way too long to correct. The mac and cheese was runny, and disgusting. I finally got the waiters attention and he said " well, if you had asked, I would have told you how bad it is tonight, we ran out of Gruyere." Oh? I guess I should have asked. He removed the dish, said he would take it off the bill..which he didn't. What else can I say..worst restaurant experience in years!!

Bartenders knew their wines and had great service from them. Our waiter when seated...not so much. We had to ask twice for WATER. We ordered the tasting menu (same thing for both of us) and he couldn't remember our orders. He must have been inexperienced and just could not find a good rhythm between our table and others. My other occasions here have been wonderful top to bottom.

Great value for excellent food!

This was literally the worst dining experience I've ever had! Food was not cooked! Ordered wine that never appeared! Only got half of our appetizer's . Took a hour and half to get entre's which were not cooked properly or were cold. Service was the worst I've ever seen! Her manager was a complete idiot whom never though to try to handle the situation correctly .
Only positive thing I can say is the General Manager finally came over and apologized and gave gift cards. Hopefully she fires the door manager . I won't be back and he we had friends in whom has to endure this dining disaster ! We eat out a lot but never in this horribly ran restaurant .

I had never been before but my family had we save up three birthdays and went however the food was ok but not great and they didn’t offer the birthday champagne toast like they had before. When we ask the waiter he said it was because there were kids at the table but w had on 17 year old and two kids under five in a party of 11? We had to ask three different times for drink refills for what we paid it did not seem worth it . The food was just ok not much seasoning in fact the potatoes were bland. There were grilled veggies on some of the entrees and they were burnt I have had grilled veggies before and they were great but some of the carrots u couldn’t eat because of they were so chared The steak that a few of our party got and the salmon were great but again it was not worth what we spent

Barely a 3...Artichoke hearts were like chewing on paper; no meat. Tuna had connective tissue attached and although it had good flavor, I couldn’t chew I thought without spitting out the tough pieces. The sprite was flat and had a strange flavor; completely ruined the cocktails that were ordered. The sea bass was great and the salads were nice too. Overall, a sub-par meal.

Convenient location for a group. My alumni group met in the sunny room to the left as you enter. I would have preferred less canned music. I likethe flatbreads for sharing and the salads are always good. I love the small dessert servings.

We celebrated my father's 91st birthday and could not have been more pleased. The hostess and wait staff were more than accommodating. The food was presented in a timely manner, was thoroughly enjoyed by all members of our party, and the birthday cake arrangement we brought from outside the restaurant was presented exactly at the right moment with candles ablaze. The atmosphere was perfect for our event in that there was no excessive noise or visual distractions and allowed our family to share fond memories and current events. It is worth noting that we did have the chef's table which is in a separate room with a curtain dividing the room from the main dining room. It was simply perfect for our event. I absolutely will be looking for the next opportunity we have to make a reservation using the same accommodations. Thank you Seasons 52 for your excellent product and service.
