Seasons 52 - Costa Mesa
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 world-class wines by the glass and signature cocktails.

When we were greeted by food server my wife asked for specialty drinks and instead of suggesting a drink the food server simply said “drinks are on the back of the menu.” He wasn’t very friendly. Drink came out wrong twice and manager finally had to make it. Food came and it was a little bland. Overall I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant. Over priced for amount and quality of food.
One of my favorite places. Food and service quality is always excellent.
Mother’s Day luncheon and the service was impeccable. The appetizers, entrees and dessert were all served in a timely manner upon ordering (especially considering it was Mother’s Day), and everything was delicious!
Great food and friendly staff
Excellent as always my only complaint would be the vegetables were such a small amount compared to usual. There were 7 green beans and 4 micro mini potatoes on my Cedar Plank Salmon. It used to have a whole dish of carrots. Potatoes and other vegetables.
We come here all the time for dinner but brunch was a miss . The menu was very limited for choices. They had no eggs as a choice and for my daughter they only had 2 choices for breakfast. I was very disappointed. We will absolutely come back for dinner but they should modify their brunch menus to include well rounded choices or stay out of the brunch business.
It was a very nice Mother's Day brunch. We sat on the patio with the heating lamps on so it was very comfortable. The street noise was barely noticable.
Christina was our server that day and she was amazing ! We were celebrating Mother’s Day with my family of 12 and we all had a great time. It was a perfect celebration. My only down fall was that I wish I booked inside because my mom was cold that day . Other than that we had a blast ! Thank you Christina fir awesome service and for taking great care of us!
Food is great, service is great (Joni is great). Laura is accommodating. It's all good!
Food & Service was great. But wait time to be seated was excruciating long. 40 min with reservation. It never should take this long. Hostess stand only gives you the typical lip service of "We are setting up your table and it will be just few min". That went on for 40 min! Not good
Great experience. Many options. Fresh food! Great wine & cocktails. Waiter Daniel was awesome.
We had a great meal and feel the prices were fair. We had a great server. Nice evening.
We decided to celebrate a little early for Mother’s Day! Last minute, but allowed us to have a wonderful dining experience. Great food and beverages! Great service. Made moms feel very special!
We were here for my birthday, which is a tradition with a girlfriend of mine. We’ve eaten here many times. I must say that We were seated alone in the very back of the restaurant. Not particularly festive. I never even realized they had a room so very far in the back. We were seated in this room completely alone while there were great tables available in the main dining area. In fact, it seems that having a reservation here almost guarantees that you do not get a good table. Do they save all the good tables for the walk-in’s? Anyway, the food was marginal - not up to their usual standards. I always order the steak salad and the meat was tough. Might try again after they get their post pandemic stuff together.
Service was excellent. But the good portions were a little bit small.
Waited too long for drinks.
This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to. Whether with friends or on a romantic date. Outdoor dining is my preference. Fire pit and heaters make it a great spot to enjoy when its a bit chilly outside. Relax indoors at the bar and listen to live piano bar. The restaurant staff is always friendly and accommodating. Shout out to the bar tender to come out and make an effort to create special drinks requested.
Celebrating my bday. They made it super special.
I had a great time with my lunch date. Service was exceptional
Love the ambiance of the bar area. Service was great when we got there but had to wait a long time for our servers to come back to take our food order. Food was good!
The dinner and service was excellent! As always, we greatly enjoyed our meal here. Thank you, Seasons 52!
Always great food and service.
Loved loved!! Absolute go to for our special occasion celebrations
Great meal with fantastic service:
We ate outdoors. That part was great - lots of heaters, but there were two large and very noisy parties next to us on both sides and were sandwiched in between lots of loud outbursts. People are just so happy to finally be out that they’re a bit over the top I think!
Got very loud on patio We had to shout to be heard in our own conversations
Always delicious with great service
Sesame salmon salad was delicious.
Had shrimp with grits and chorizo sausage was delicious.
Great to get back to outdoor dining at Seasons 52. Our server Lindsay was fantastic and always there when we needed her. We've always really liked the food, but the quality has actually gone up. We ordered multiple appetizers and they were all great: try the lobster flatbread and the roasted artichoke!
Always enjoy having a date night with my husband at Seasons 52. I have a very restricted diet and this place meets every limitation I have. Plus everyone is super nice and enjoys holding a conversation
These people understand excellent customer service and satisfaction. They are delightful as was the food.
Meeting with family. Michael was a delightful server. Everyone of us enjoyed our lunch. I can’t wait to come and try other things. I got the pork chop because no one else eats pork at our house and I have been craving it. I was not disappointed...it was tasty and done perfectly! Thank you Season 52 for a lovely experience!
Stopped in for lunch. Service could have been a bit better this trip. Ordered soup and it came out of the kitchen luke warm/coldish. Because we needed to get somewhere, I did not send it back. Remainder of the meal was served at the correct temperature. The food choices are always great here as well as the taste so when we are back in the area we will probably give it another try....
Waiter was awful which we told him and he thought we were joking. He broke the cork on the wine bottle and then push the rest of the cork into the bottle and wanted to know if we were ok with that - no not on $118 bottle of wine! Never asked how our food was. All four of us received our food at different times and I believe he actually didn’t order one of the meals. I’ve eaten at the location in Colorado which I love but will definitely never eat at this location again
As usual, the food and service were impeccable. We had a reservation and only had to wait a few minutes for our table. Once seated, we had a fabulous waitress, Amber, who was not only extremely friendly and courteous, but very helpful, suggesting we try certain items. I ordered the pork chop, which was amazing. Very tender with wonderful accompaniments of asparagus and cauliflower mash. My husband had the lamb, which he said was a bit tough but very flavorful. We started with the Korean BBQ strips, which was just enough, as there were 4 skewers. We were going to the ballet at the Performing Arts Center (Yes, it was open just for an invitation-only crowd) and Amber made sure that we were not rushed but that we also got our meal and check in plenty of time. An outstanding experience. We were seated on the patio b/c all the interior tables were taken. It was a bit chilly but with the fireplace and heaters, we were very comfortable. We always love this place and were, once again, not disappointed.
Food is always amazing. Never disappointed. Our server is always so kind and attentive.
Service was great, we had a birthday dinner and they brought complimentary champagne for us. Food was delicious, I will definitely come back if I’m in the area.
Everything was perfect. We had great food and a really fun waiter. We were celebrating abirhday
