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.

Everything about this is restaurant is superb! We absolutely loved the delicious food, that was seasonably prepared and very healthy (most items are around 500 calories). Our server, Ryan was fantastic and took great care of us as well as offered us some great suggestions for food items.

My friend and I love coming here but our most recent visit was especially fine. I give credit to the patio with its heating and its peacefulness and the food was excellent as usual. To top it off, our waitress Jinelle was the best....cheerful, friendly and attentive to our needs.

We went for the Root and Vine. Wine was great. My salad was delicious and the tomato cheddar soup was too. However, the main course of Cod was too salty and needed some flavor. As for the mini desserts, I had the pecan pie which was good, but the pumpkin pie was too sweet!

Still good food, although portions are not what I remembered. Good wine list, pour was forgettable, but it's still a quality restaurant. Excellent service.

Wife and I each ordered the pesto chicken and fresh mozzarella flatbread. Hers was the gluten free with no cheese and mine was the standard one. Hers came loaded with chicken. Mine was mostly no chicken. I did not immediately notice the lack of chicken because there was lots of arugula piled on top. Ii had already eaten about half when I removed the arugula from the other half. There were 3 small chunks of chicken on that half. Since I had already eaten half I did not mention it to the waiter. I should have!
We have been to this restaurant many times and rarely had a problem. But, I will certainly inspect my order more closely in the future.

Lunch at Seasons 52 was perfect. The food was delicious from the golden beet salad to the flatbreads. The ahi tuna tartare was the best. And to top it off, the service was exceptional.

I love your restaurant, but am always put off by how loud the singer is in the bar. It is distracting, and my friends and I have to shout at each other to be heard.

Food quality is always good, service is excellent. It was a business meal, we need a quiet table and the staff is very accommodating. Everyone is quite happy with the service. Their salad dressing is always perfect! My favorite place for healthy meals.

Good food, good service. Enjoy coming here before going to the show at the Segerstrom Center. But always disappointed with the dessert. Dessert comes in a "shot glass", very petite. Not shareable. Price of the dessert compare to other restaurants with chocolate cake with ice cream, which is shareable. This is why we don't come here for special celebration dinners.

Great service Junior, our server! He was attentive and asked if we were on a time schedule for a show at the performing arts center.....which we were! It was good that we did not have to request a speedy service.

We love coming here before going to a performance or concert. Food is always good, with interesting selection of seasonal specials.
We prefer to sit outside, because it gets a little noisy inside, if you want to have a nice, quiet conversation

My husband and I had been talking for a while to have dinner before going to a show at SCFTA for a while and I decided that this past Saturday night would be a nice night to go. I had been many years ago and looked forward to going again, my husband had not been. The first thing we noticed was how loud it was. I'm guessing because it was a Saturday night had something to do with it, but it was challenging to have a lower volume conversation with my husband. We also noticed before we were seated the root & vine prix fix menu, something we lean towards. We were well tended to and our server was quite attentive and answered our questions and informed us if a change to the recipe for one of the items. He also made wine suggestions as the wine flight did not appeal to us as one of the varietals did not appeal to our palettes. Unfortunately the recommendation of wine for my meal was not, in my opinion, a good pairing, though it was a good wine. Our server did offer a different glass of wine, however I didn't feel the need.

My husband and I sat for over 10 minutes after we completed our entrees for our server to return for the dessert portion, but he never came. He walked by a couple of times, not stopping and not really looking our way. We were increasingly becoming concerned as we did have our concert to attend and we wanted to arrive on time. The maitre d' passed by three times, appearing to me more annoyed with each pass that we were sitting there with finished plates. On the third pass, he cleared our table and apologized. We informed him of our upcoming plans and the want for the dessert, which quickly arrived from another server but followed up by our original server. We were able to finish up and arrive even a little early to SCFTA and not be rushed.

The food was delicious and I would go again in a heartbeat because of it. However I am hesitant to go with plans following or on a Saturday night.

I am a regular customer for business lunches (In fact, I was there today Monday and will be there another 2 days this week...) This past Saturday, we were seated on the patio although I had asked for a booth int he bar area (where I always sit). I realize that you don't "reserve" these seats, but thought we might try anyway. We were seated outside. There is on ambiance there at a all. We were brought to a 2 person granite table with nothing on it. No candle, no salt/pepper or sweeteners, no fork/knife/napkins. Nothing. And then, it started to shower. I was getting wet. Fortunately, the table to the left of us asked if there was something inside, the waitress found out there was one booth at the bar (which the other table did not want because they thought it was be too noisy). I asked if we could take that table and were brought inside. The rest of the night was lovely, the ambiance again returned and I was happy. Please don't ever seat me outside again! Especially not when it's showering! I think that you really need to redesign/redecorate your outside patio, it is really lacking.

Love the new Fall menu - I had the Scallops served on Goat Cheese risotto and it was delicious. My husband had the Bistro steak (I think it's new for Fall) and he loved it - said he's going to have it again next time. It was cooked perfect and he was really happy with it. We were going to a show across the street, but our server was so efficient that we had time for coffee and dessert.
