I think the restaurant was quite good in all areas but a guest’s $31.00 salmon dish was not quite cooked the way she requested it so she ended up leaving the center where it was too rare. She showed the waiter when he stopped by but I along with another were mostly finished with our satisfactory entrees so she did not want to hold us up by waiting for a replacement.
Under the circumstances the waiter could have offered her a complimentary dessert or removed an appetizer or salad from the bill which was $174.00 without gratuity.
Overall it just falls short of a 5 star recommendation.

excellent food, and great service. our waiter had assistance but did not forget us. special occasion was a friend's birthday and there was a special treat for us. the food was creative and really delicious. no hesitation to say I will go back and recommend the restaurant for a treat. open floor plan was the 3 star; the restaurant was really full and the place a bit noisy.

Well by now you must know I'm a fan of Seasons 52.
I had trout and the delicious grain salad.
My guest had the fish tacos (Mahi-Mahi) and the corn soup.

I could not possibly recommend a nicer spot. While I have seen their nicer bar area active and walk in's taken, I have set reservations every time I have come, and all my experiences have been for significant date nights. The food is very clean, fresh, and delicious. The service has always been outstanding from valet parking, the hostess station, through to the wait staff. A manager has come by the table every time I have visited. I could not be happier.

This last visit when I told my wife I was bringer her to Seasons-52 for a date she was beaming with happiness and excitement. It would be a strong error to miss out on this fantastic find.

We requested a quiet table and were not really satisfied until the manage took us to the back room which was away from the main dining area. Our niece, who was visiting from out of town is hard of hearing. Our table was perfect.

I had taken my friend from St Louis to Seasons52 two years ago and she loved it! So when she was back in Boston and made a date for dinner, she asked that we return to Seasons52. We both love the seasonal starters and entrees. And we always leave room for dessert! Seasons52 is my "go to" restaurant when friends and family come to visit me. You have never disappointed me!

I recently celebrated my birthday at Seasons 52. It was a lovely place to do so. The food was great; service lovely, presentation spectacular and lots of attention paid to detail. They even included a little candle with the deserts, subtle but thoughtful. We all enjoyed the occasion.

Very disappointing. Probably the worst service I have ever had at this restaurant, and at restaurants
in the area. Waiter would just disappear. Dinner took over two hours, with staff cleaning around us as it was so late. Wine sent back because it had "turned" with no apologies from the waiter. Coffee awful.
Would not consider returning to this restaurant for a while. I eat out in the area A LOT. This was unacceptable service.

I was a little disappointed with the service. It looks like the wait staff were more interested in talking with each other or watching soccer than paying attention to the customers. We waited for some time to get served and had to ask for bread for our table. The restaurant was almost empty so there was no reason for the long wait or long intervals between starters and our meal. I hope they get back on track soon. Thanks.

We have now been to Seasons 52 about six times in as many months. We learned from a review after our first visit that the bar area booths are quieter and a prettier part of the restaurant so we ask for that seating and have -- until this visit -- felt the advice was on target. Unfortunately, this time the bartender took our order at the booth but then went back behind the bar and attention to service at our table became very spotty. Otherwise, food and wine were up to usual high standards!

If you are looking for a wide ranging menu, fabulous service and a relaxing time, Seasons 52 is a good choice. I have dined there on several occasions with mixed results, but can say that the brunch and lunch experiences included spectacular food, and dinner on several occasions has been disappointing. My main criticism is that the food just does not taste as fresh as I'd like, neither the meat or the fish. There were not bad, but not fresh off the boat or out of the gate, either. This is tough to achieve in a large high volume restaurant such as this. Still, I recommend Seasons 52 for its high level of service, broad number of food choices and overall ease of dining.

Decent food, not exceptional. With the exception of the side of cauliflower; which was excellent. Service was fair comparable to a chain restaurant. No rush to go back.
