The quality and the presentation of the food was and is always excellent. The food looks and feels (tastes) fresh. The wait staff is courteous and exremely knowledgeable about the food menu and the wine selections. This is my "go to" restaurant for any special occasion and for hosting guests. The environment is pleasant, noise level in the main dining area is reasonable and the room between tables is comfortable.

Everything was perfect! Very attentive service from not just the server but several others from the service team. The extra attention for the birthday girl was much appreciated! Food was delicious!

Season 52 was my "go to" for a good dinner at a good value. I don't know what happened to our last visit. The service was slow; the drink was diluted, the portion was so small I left hungry and the cost was high. If cutting portions and raising prices is the business plan, there are too many other restaurant options in the city. Sorry Season 52, you might have lost a good customer.

Overall, the food was good. I had the lobster bisque, which I thought tasted fine, was a bit too thick and "gloppy", like it had been sitting in the hot line too long. Our server, Aubrey, was very kind and attentive.

Our 2nd Anniversary dinner was over the top! Great service, food, they even took our picture and gave us 2 wine glasses to take home! It’s our favorite place.

Excellent dining experience - took my (93 y/o) mom out for change of pace experience and Season 52 delivered. Great salads with unique dressings, delicious crab cakes with more crab meat than usually served, an interesting prix fixe and (Caymus) wine flight; this restaurant nestled in Hyde Park should please most diners.

the restaurant is a typical high volume mid level corporate restaurant. The food was average, the service was okay. The server was fine but table maintenance was lacking. Rolled silverware at a restaurant at this average check level was suspect. Had to consistently ask for silver after every course. Lamb loin was cold, shrimp and grits were okay but the menu is literally from the 90's. All entrees had the same vegetable pretty much, desserts were nothing but pudding profiles in a shot glass with some type of cookie. Wont be back, i should have known better.

Thank you so much for making our 20th anniversary amazing! The food was amazing and healthy. It was our first visit with more to come. FYI I done eat sea food unless I am at the coast. I took a risk and was could not have been more pleased if I was at the coast.

To our waitress you are absolutely lovely. You made us feel like a million bucks. Thank you!!!

Went here on a Monday night with a friend who was visiting from out of town. She’s been to Seasons 52 in the city she’s from and she’s always had a good experience. The ahi tartare was impeccable, our entree salads were delicious. The only downside was our waiter. He seemed hurried and uninterested in being there. He was also quick to grab empty dishes and drink glasses that he didn’t want to be talked to.

Very traditional, almost old-school type ambience. They were swamped on a Saturday evening when we were there, so I think you would want a reservation. Nonetheless, the service was top-notch and the food was great. While the menu was varied, I would also classify it as very safe.

Carlos was a great server. He fed us including wine, flatbread h’orderve, main course, dessert payment too in under 70 minutes so we could make 7:30 pm curtain call at Ensemble Theater. By the way, food was great too! Jack!

The food at the restaurant was good but the service was terrible. Ar first our waitress was very attentive but then after takin our drink order and appetizer it was almost 45 min before she came back to take our dinner order. One the food came out (brought out by the Chef) we had to ask for the bottle of wine we ordered to be delivered. They offered a complimentary dessert but we also ordered coffee which never came. Based on this experience, I would not recommend this restaurant and will not be going back.

The food taste great except the key lime dessert we had, and portion size could be a tad bigger but it taste so good I can't really complain,my biggest issue was our server and another female server kept having long loud conversations with table right next our table which kind of threw of the birthday dinner mood the whole hour and half we was there. We most likely won't be back and will continue to visit Capital Grill.

This is always a good go to place. Food is great. Portions are good. Can be a little crowded at times, but good energy. You can dress up or moderate and fit in. Muni desserts always a nice light endulgence.

One of our favorite restaurants to go to. We were never disappointed. It’s a little pricey so we won’t go too often.
I had the scallops and the hubby had the Chilean sea bass. Both were fantastic.
Our waiter Tony was great too.

The wine glass slipped from my elderly friend’s hand and shattered into a zillion pieces. The service we received from our waitress and bar tender was simply wonderful. They cleaned up the booth, the table, my friend and brought us a new setting to start over.

It was a stressful situation but they were outstanding in their care. I hope they know how much we appreciated it.

The food was and has always been consistently good. We informed our server that we were in no hurry. She stated that she would pace out our courses. Unfortunately this did not occur. We ordered drinks and an appetizer. Before we had a chance to enjoy this course, another server tried to give us our salads. I had them sent back. Thinking that we would be good for the remainder of the meal we were given new salads. Once again we were disappointed as our entrees were brought to our table soon after the salads. Once again I had them sent back. We did receive hot and fresh entrees at the appropriate time.

Our entrees were very good, the quality and quantity of the scallop dish for the price was excellent. My husband had an entree salad which was he said also very good. The service was slightly slow, our server appeared to have tables in other areas of the restaurant, so at times we were waiting for a server--i.e. clearing plates, waiting for a check. We enjoyed the restaurant this was our second time, and we'll be back.
