I used to recommend this restaurant because the food is so terrific, but nowadays the dining experience is completely ruined because of the noise level of the patrons. Not just in the main restaurant, but in the semi-private rooms as well. It is INCREDIBLY noisy. I doubt we'll be returning, at least not during peak dining hours.

This is my first time at this restaurant. I was surprised first off at the push by the server to get our order, she came by every minute to ask if we were ready when taking a clue by our conversation should have been enough.
My guest has the seared tuna and only ate half.
I had the cedar plank salmon which was stuck to the board and I was barely able to get pieces off.

We had a cheeseburger and a smallish salad and two ice teas. It was over $40.00 Not the best value for sure. Cheeseburger was well done and somewhat dry.

Upon sitting down we were greeted by the server. She was great. She told us that they had everything on the menu except Nantucket Bay Scallops. After we ordered, she came back and said they did not have the Scallops, or Tuna or Porkchops. Basically half of our orders were unavailable. Quite disappoining.

When I made the reservation I noted this was our anniversary dinner. When we arrived, there on the table was a very nice Happy Anniversary card. Nice. Our server, Christina was pleasant and timely. Our avocado toast starter was amazing. My wife ordered her favs, tomato flatbread and butternut squash soup, but I tried shrimp and grits. We were not disappointed!! Wonderful food and service with nice comp’d dessert and photo made it a thoroughly memorable evening. However, we hope some effort will be made soon to update/ repair fixtures and seating. Signs of wear are beginning to show. Still, it was a lovely evening.

Very unimpressed. We have enjoyed this establishment many of times prior to this. The ambiance is traditionally a very relaxing and quiet one, yet our most recent experience was quite upsetting. We were seated in the back room and immediately after a large, drunk party was seated right next to us. The attention immediately went to that party and we were treated as second rate citizens. Our service was lacking and the noise level was so great I was unable to even talk to the person next to me without having to yell. The servers were nice, but did not give our table the service that was needed. Our waters were not filled when they should have been, our drinks took way too long even for a single pour wine glass, but the noise and lack of attention given to our table are the main reasons for this poor rating. I love Seasons 52, but this most recent experience has left a sour taste in my mouth.

Don’t usually write bad reviews, and I understand it was New Year’s Eve, but we had a reservation and had to wait 30 minutes for our table. It was a cold and windy night, and our table was next to a door leading to the outside patio which was opened at least once per minute. Needless to say we were all freezing. My gnocchi was gummy and the sauce was strange, and when I told the server she just said sorry about that. Still charged me but I did eat more than half cuz I was hungry, but maybe she could have comped my 4 dollar dessert, just sayin’. We would have ordered drinks and enjoyed ourselves more but we couldn’t wait to get out of the cold wind constantly coming through that door... disappointing

The food came out quickly, despite it being a busy day and time (New Year’s Eve). My party was in and out of the restaurant within an hour of our reservation. I was quite impressed cause we were not rushing.
