It was my birthday celebration and I chose Seasons 52 only to be met with disappointment. My waiter Stan was great and on-point but I cannot say the same about the food. I ordered the cornish hen that lacked color, appetizing presentation, and flavor. The sauce was bitter and distasteful. The wow factor was definitely not there. I returned my food to order the scallops. Needless to say, I was far from impressed. The quinoa/rice was very sweet like they were trying to revive it. I’m not sure what has happened here at Seasons. I came here many times in the past but I guess this place does not get better with time.

The overall experience was good, but my husband ordered scotch to drink. There was literally only 1/2 inch of scotch in the glass and they charged $10 for it. It was such a rip off.

Spring menu is new and needs improvement. Some dishes simply do not work -- such as the seafood stuffed mushrooms, which arrived piping hot yet had one texture (mush) and a flavor profile that just didn't work (spinach paired with shrimp). In addition, the other dishes were just "meh," like the shrimp and grits which tasted of too much roasted pepper and was drowning is sauce.

If the Chef could just add a little more seasoning to meats and watch the grill q little closer so meats are not too overdone.

I recommend Seasons 52 to all my friends. I love the concept - an entire menu without hidden calorie bombs! The food is fresh and tasty, nothing is fried or heavily sauced, and the selection has great variety that changes with the seasons. One can even enjoy dessert here because they are "mini" indulgences. It is my go to place whenever possible!

The waitress had a poor attitude. Had to ask other waiters for napkins, questions , food etc. when asked our waitress about bread she said there wasn’t any and didn’t offer anything to substitute. When we saw others getting crackers we had to ask another waiter for them . The other waiters responded quickly and out of their way to serve us.

Our waitress was hard to find- we asked for our check and she ignored it waisting our time and instead came back with desserts and gave us spoons. We thought she was making up for poor service but it was not. She also took a long time to get my credit card back. She didn’t thanks for coming- overall poor attitude and service.

What a great menu! And i was hard-pressed to find an entree OVER 600 calories. Try doing that at your typical restaurant! And oh so fresh and flavorful! I had the wood-grilled fillet of rainbow trout and it was outstanding.

I like this restaurant, ambiance, service, food and wine. I requested to be seated away from heavy foot and door traffic. I was seated in the booth next to the restrooms and smack in front of the bar serving area. Not what I expected with constant heavy foot traffic. The server was friendly, but someone forgot the appetizer. I ate my salad thinking the app would soon arrive and my friend wouldn't be left just watching me eat. We had to track down our server. She got on it; the manager came over and comped the app; but strangely the service no longer was friendly. We had to ask her if she got in trouble over it. She said no, but the service atmosphere seemed to change. She didn't check on us for follow up drinks and we didn't see her again until she brought the check.

We've been to the restaurant several times and once again the food and service was excellent. We did, however, miss the piano player who usually performs in the evenings and were disappointed to find out that corporate has discontinued this practice.

I would perhaps recommend to a friend with the caveat that I enjoyed my meal but that my husband did not -- the ravioli was salty and the special strawberry cheesecake mini dessert was dry.

The flatbreads here are always good. We had the mushroom one and the spring vegetable with parmesan which is on the new spring menu. The grilled artichokes with lemon hummus is one of my absolute favorite menu items, cooked perfectly with a delicious blend of flavors. I found the zucchini mash side to be a little heavy. I also found the caramelized scallops to be somewhat bland. One of my dining companions had the shrimp and avocado appetizer and said it was wonderful. The mac n cheese was nicely prepared and not too creamy, which is how I prefer it. The mini dessert indulgences are always a crowd pleaser!

My first dining experience to Season 52 was excellent with great ambience and atmosphere. Making reservation online was very convenient and reduced long wait times. Our server maintained professionalism and met all of our needs. Menu was not lengthy, allowed you to make choices quickly, and offered interesting food combinations. Food was tasty and authentic.

We went for lunch on a Saturday. It was busy but not packed. Our server, Cody, was excellent - solicitous but not intrusive. We started with the chicken flatbread, which had a light crust and was extremely flavorful. My mom said the lobster bisque was one of the best she'd ever tasted. The strawberry spinach salad was light and delicious. The scallops were broiled to perfection. And the Greek side salad was so big it was more then enough for two meals.

The atmosphere is warm and invite conversation - you can't hear others nearby and there isn't that din of noise you get in some restaurants.

The menu changes with the seasons and it is creative with something for everyone. Your hardest choice is what to order.

For dessert, there are about 10 tiny dishes to choose from, giving you a taste of something sweet without adding 1000 calories to your meal. There are pecan pie, key lime pie, mocha, coffee and strawberry cheesecake, chocolate and other options.

The food was excellent. The menu had some great choices. My only complaint was the timing. There was a haste to how quickly things moved along. Our waitress was very nice and good at what she did, but I felt hurried through the meal. No sooner was our entree placed down, that she came around and asked how everything tasted. I hardly put the food in my mouth. She cleared the dishes quickly and while I was still chewing asked if we wanted coffee. I told her to give us a minute before we moved to the dessert course. I would have enjoyed it more, if we had some time to breath in between courses. It was busy when we arrived (especially for a Wednesday evening) but was pretty quiet by the end of the meal, but the pace was quick.

Think PF Changs but American upscale food. We didn't really know what to expect, but found this to be a very nice dinner. The pork tenderloin was tasty and moist and the shrimp and grits top notch. We sat in the bar at a booth and I think this was a little quieter than it would have been in the dining area. We appreciated the quietness and it contributed to our dinner. The only hiccup in the evening was when asked about a dinner salad, the server seemed confused by the concept. We never did learn if a side dinner salad is available with the meal and had to satisfy ourselves by purchasing an entree salad which was split by the kitchen onto two plates. The server was polite and attentive, but could have used some training on the menu and availability.
