Seasons 52 is a comfortable and stylish fresh grill and wine bar offering a refreshingly balanced approach to food and wine where guests are free to enjoy, knowing any choice they make is one they’ll feel good about. The menu changes with the season to feature ingredients at their peak, from whole produce that arrives and is kept 100% fresh, never frozen, to carefully sourced meats and pristine seafood. Entrées are oak-fire grilled or brick oven-roasted, without a fryer in sight, to be flavorful and naturally lighter. The Wine Bar pours 52 world-class wines by the glass and signature cocktails. Lunch and dinner daily, happy hour Monday through Friday. More at Seasons52.com.

We love going to Seasons 52! Glad we went earlier as it got really busy when we were leaving. The food is always excellent and service is always great! Our kids especially love the little desserts they have.

It was our anniversary and they did a special things that you don't see in most restaurants. They gave us a little glass of champagne and also gave us free dessert with our meals. Employees who were part of the server teams also wished us a happy anniversary.

You feel a little like just a number there. Made reservations asked for inside twice and after waiting 20 past reservation time, she escorted us to the patio. It’s not winter, yet they had the heater on full blast.
So I’ve eaten here twice, both times unhappy w my entree. The cedar plank salmon tastes like you’re eating a barrel of wood. Last night tried the Greek salad w shrimp and cannot believe any restaurant would serve this. Wilted iceberg lettuce that comes to the table in a plastic cone. The salad was the worst ever and the shrimp not much better; overly salty!

Reliably courteous, good service. The restaurant seated us immediately even though heavy traffic delayed us for 20 minutes after the reservation time. This act was greatly appreciated as it allowed my guest and I to still enjoy a leisurely dinner before the theater. Thank you.

It was my birthday. Jen was our server and she was amazing. She was friendly and very personable. Best service I have had at seasons 52 in awhile. Shock the manager as I asked to see him to let him know what a great experience we had.

My husband took me to Seasons 52 to celebrate my birthday. The staff went out of their way to make my experience special, with a birthday card upon arrival, a bubbly toast for the two of us, a special dessert to share, as well as our individual dessert choices. Our salmon meals (sesame salmon salad and cedar plank salmon) were delicious. This restaurant is our new go-to place!

We love Seasons 52 and visit frequently. Food is always good as is the service, and we especially enjoy the flatbreads which are like no others. Always a good crowd with a very active piano bar in a separate area, it can get noisy but always festive.

The food and service were ok but the noise level was deafening. It was impossible to have a conversation or even hear yourself speak. Way too many people jammed into the main room. All in all it was not an enjoyable experience.

Just a note..... the noise level is always quiet out on the patio. Which is why I always request it. Inside is another story, so I never recommend it to friends who have hearing issues.

Our server did direct the heater next to us to be turned on as we sat in the patio. Our starters came quickly and were delicious. However, our entree salad took was delivered 35 minutes after the appetizers were served. Our server did stop by to tell us that our salad was coming soon. When our salad arrived, it had red onions in it which we requested “no onions.” At the end of our meal, our server gave us our check and did not ask us if we wanted any coffee or desserts. This was highly unusual (probably the first time that we were not offered desserts) as we frequent this restaurant. The Key Lime pie dessert is my wife’s favorite! Since we received the check already, we decided not to order any coffee or desserts. My wife and I both felt that the service is below what we have come to expect from our numerous visits to this Seasons 52.

I enjoy this restaurant and have been here many times. Unfortunately this was my worst experience by far. I had a business associate with me who is looking for a wedge salad. I thought for sure this restaurant used to serve one but maybe not. Anyway….Try as we might it seemed impossible to get any kind of a very simple salad made the way my guest would have liked it. What was ultimately delivered was just some lettuce piled on a plate with ingredients to mix a salad on her own plate spread out in a very random an organized fashion. There were obviously heads of lettuce back there and it wouldn't have taken much to just saw one in quarters and build a wedge salad but apparently that wasn't within the scope of the Chef or restaurants capabilities. Really disappointing!

We had Sunday brunch for the whole family. Good dishes included the trout, burrata, and stuffed mushrooms. Our pork tenderloin was undercooked (pinkish with some red). The filet mignon was undercooked twice (we sent it back once and then gave up the second time) despite discussing our needs to the manager and waiter. However, our waiter was good and they made efforts to make our experience better- this effort was appreciated. After eating here from its initial opening and seeing how things have changed, I'd say the food input quality is solid but the kitchen is rushing food out with what seems like insufficient grill capacity.
