Our server, Bekkah, was probably the best server I've ever had at Seasons 52 (probably better than at most restaurants). She helped us celebrate a birthday was helpful and friendly without being intrusive. She has an incredibly positive attitude. I hope Seasons 52 management recognizes her great work. Everything else about our meal was just fine and enjoyable.

The food at Seasons 52 in Columbia has always been excellent and tonight was no exception. Everything on the menu is under 600 calories. The deserts are awesome and small enough to let anyone feel bad about eating them.

Would not recommend for dinner. I have been here for lunch and found the menu to be more bang for your buck. Our appetizers were ok. (short ribs were very fatty and hard to chew) and the spinach artichoke dip was bland. Would have liked to see some cheese in it.
Two of us had the filet which was delicious. The salmon and scallops were also good.
But the prices seemed a bit high.

The restaurant was very comfortable and was easy for everyone to visit. The service was great and she took the time to explain everything and answer our questions. The food was great and the presentation was eye catching.

Let me start off by saying this is the 1st comments I’ve written on this site. Also I’ve been to this restaurant many times before. Lastly, I ran several restaurants for over 10 years in my past.

We arrived at noon, didn’t get our entrees for over an hour. The restaurant was dead, maybe 4 other tables, hard to believe it took the food that long. Mine, cod fish wasn’t w the rest, I was told they had to re-cook it. No other explanation which is sad. I asked the food runner and he said “not sure, I was just told to get this out 911”! He thought maybe the plate broke, it was especially hot. Either way it would have been nice to know.

My cod was bland, for the record. Lauren the server was good., pleasant and friendly. I’m not blaming these issues on her. The restaurant Mgr didn’t seem too excited to be there, in my opinion. I could write other choice words but I won’t. I did have an interaction w her during her in-service, again quite pushy. Not a fan. Unfortunately for this restaurant we won’t be back. This was the 1st time my parents and my family had been. My daughter chose it for her bday lunch, she was here once before w friends. I may be back but I’ll stay in the bar area, where It seems to be better.

While the service was excellent the food was average at best. In fact, the spinach and artichoke dip appeared to be undercooked. I experience an upset stomach within 6-8 hours after consumption. This was a 50th birthday celebration and it was not what was expected.

Outstanding food. The grilled artichoke appetizer was just a pinch salty and would have been even better with a cracker or bread pairing for the hummus. The sea bass was delicious and my husband’s steak was cook perfectly. A lovely night out!

If you want to eat in a healthy way, Seasons 52 is an excellent choice. We tried several items that were new to us. We did not enjoy the Brussel sprouts but enjoyed the flatbreads, soup of the day and ravioli.

The service was excellent!

Glad we made a reservation as the dining room filled quickly for Thursday evening dinner service. Our waitress was excellent and allowed us the time to enjoy our drinks before we placed our order. We were also pleased that in deciding to split a salad, it was delivered in two separate portions (which we had not requested). The salmon on a plank was perfected cooked with well-seasoned broccolini and potatoes. The roasted chicken dish was also well cooked. A lovely dinner where we never felt rushed.

Restaurant was running about 20-25 minutes late. Even with a Opentable reservation, took that time to be seated. The manager came and apologized and offered 2 free appetizers. 100% salvaged the trip. I think the gentleman’s name was Jeff as the manager he was aware & concerned. It was greatly appreciated!

We came to Seasons 52 for our 4 year wedding anniversary. Service was really great. Ahmed ,our server, really took care of us. Made sure we were good, brought us our drinks in a timely manner. The manager John came over and introduced himself. He comped our first round of drinks. I had an amazing filet with mashed potatoes, mushrooms and green beans. SO GOOD! My husband had a tuna dish that was just lovely too. The food was very fresh and prepared so well. When it came time for dessert, Ahmed presented us with a tower of shooter-sized desserts. I wanted all of them because they all looked so delicious. He told both of us to choose two! So we did! Really great desserts, just the right sized portions. And even more amazing, seasons 52 comped our desserts too! Such a lovely place. This is the second year in a row that we have gone to Seasons 52 for our anniversary and we will definitely be back again! Thank you for your hospitality!

I have been here a few times in a number of different settings - Girls' night at the bar, dinner with my parents, Birthday celebrations, etc. - and Seasons 52 never ceases to impress me. The restaurant tends to be booked on weekends, so make sure you have a reservation. On weekdays, however, most of the tables are empty and the restaurant is pleasantly quiet - great for conversation without feeling too vacant. Their seasonal menu is always exciting and their cocktails are exceptional. The times that we have told our server that we are celebrating a special moment, they have brought us complimentary campaign and dessert. One last perk of the restaurant is that they validate your valet parking, allowing you to avoid the hassle of parking at the mall.

I always like the food here. On a Monday night, the place was delightfully quiet. We reserved for 5 but our 5th showed up about 20 minutes late. Nevertheless, we were seated and allowed to take our time ordering drinks and an appetizer. Service was really great.

Enjoyed a nice, quiet Sunday afternoon lunch with my significant other. She had the Shrimp and grits while I ordered the sesame salmon salad. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and tasty. Our server was polite and prompt with our orders. The restaurant is located adjacent to the Columbia mall. Great location and ambiance here. We will return.

Everyone was happy with the food. Our server, Hamed, was just wonderful. There is not much more you can ask for. We know what is offered, we have been here before. One can only be disappointed if the kitchen or the service fails. Tonight it did not.

We have made this restaurant a regular Friday night outing for our family! Great ambiance and really friendly service. We actually went out to celebrate buying our new house and the waitress asks if we were celebrating anything. Once she found out, she brought out 2 glasses of champagne! This past week, James was our server and was exceptional. Very conversational and attentive! We will be back next Friday!! Consistent service and food!

We had a wonderful evening and dinner celebrating our dear friend being diagnosed cancer free. Our server was James! We can’t express enough how wonderful he was from the moment we sat down. He added to our evening and we all commented that he was truly the best server we’ve ever had! Don’t lose him. We will be back and certainly request him. Food was outstanding!!!
