OUR PATIO IS OPEN. CURBSIDE PICKUP ALSO AVAILABLE. We are pleased to open our doors, but delighted to still offer takeout. See the menu at Seasons52.com or call l (714) 437-5252 to place an order.

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.

This restaurant NEVER disappoints! It was our 20th wedding anniversary, and the restaurant had a lovely card waiting for us at our table and treated us to dessert after dinner. The food was superb, and our server, Esmeralda, was on point! We started with the Buffalo Cauliflower Flatbread and Lump Crab and Shrimp-Stuffed Mushrooms. For drinks I had the Hawaiian Pineapple Cosmo, husband had a red blend wine. I opted for the Cedar Plank-Roasted Salmon, and he ordered the Wood-Grilled Filet Mignon. Everything was perfect, and I look forward to returning again very soon.

This restaurant never disappoints. Service was a little slow but sitting outside made it okay. I had scallops which were so tender. Two had shrimp and grits which they loved and one had lamb which was also delicious we all cleaned our plates.

We had a delightful visit for our anniversary. They gave us a sweet card, champagne, and a lovely dessert, they were attentive, and the food was fantastic. They accommodated my dietary needs very well. Cannot say enough positive about Seasons 52.

Another great experience at Seasons 52. The food was exquisite, service impeccable, and we were seated on their outdoor patio near a fire pit. Although we have some large groups around us that our server also had responsibility for, we still got the personalized experience and care we desired. Stuffed Mushrooms to start were outstanding, I had Shrimp and Grits which didn't disappoint and my wife had the pepperoni flatbread which was surprisingly light and tasty. To drink, I had the Caymus flight which was a great value and through that discovered the best Pinot Noir I've had in a long time, Sea Sun by Caymus. Definitely will be back again soon!

The patio atmosphere was delightful and our service excellent. I ordered the steak tacos which were disappointing. I asked to have the meat well done, and it was rare. They were also very plain. I used to get beef tacos that were on your menu a number of years ago that were excellent. I would not have these again

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the ambiance and its food. I never feel like it is heavy when I am done eating.

Their menu changes probably quarterly.

My fave items that I usually get:
Roasted Tomato Flatbread - appetizer dish
Lump Crab and Shrimp-stuffed mushrooms
Chilean Sea Bass
Wood Grilled Salmon

Most of their entrees are under 600 calories.

Between forcing us to wait for 10 minutes past our reservation time outside in a cloud of cigarette smoke to failing to turn on the heater for 20 minutes as we sat there freezing, to the lovely parking lot view, to the sodium content of the food that surely exceeds my recommended dose for the week, it was more of a survival experience than the fine dining experience one would expect from Seasons52. Sorry folks, I know that the pandemic has been tough on everyone, but I didn't see any discounts on the (very limited) menu, and the pandemic is no reason for forgetting someone asked for a glass of wine 20 minutes ago or ordered their $15 cesar salad with light dressing and no croutons. And don't pile attitude on top of it and make me feel like you are doing me a favor by serving my table. I will not be back, even after things are normal again.

Birthday dinner. Was quiet and delicious. A bit cold because they left the door open due to Covid I’m assuming. I recommend it.

Wow, let me start by saying we’ve been eating here since the restaurant opened, and were very happy to get back inside. The hostess brought us to the booth and my wife starts hitting the bench because there is food from the last people, the hostess didn’t pick up on a customer cleaning something we sit down, and the table has food still on it! My wife is not happy she cleans the booth and table with her napkin and we tell our server Justin when he came to our table. He apologized and brought her a clean napkin and took our order. As I’m sitting there I noticed the the wooden divider between us and the kitchen is very very dusty. Doesn’t look like it was cleaned in weeks. Our wine was great the flatbread was delicious, my wife ordered the bbq chicken salad with out red peppers, it came with red peppers, another apology, they were removed. And we had dessert. Justin was a great server, but I noticed no one was helping each other out by picking up empty plates as they were walking by like they used too. And we never saw a manager, there was always someone walking by several times while we ate before. Maybe we will wait for awhile before trying this place again.

The service was good and the food was excellent however, the company who ordered the seabass fish let hungry. Seabass was great but the side that comes with it (rice pilaf) portion was super small.
