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.

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.
Esmeralda was wonderful and really made our birthday celebration so special! Thank you!
Great food Ans great service.
Mel was our server. She was outstanding
Meal was great, restaurant is being safe with the mask, cleaning and social distancing.
Just reopened to inside dining. Excellent service with Covid-19 controls. No wait and service was exceptional. Always has been our go to place. We are so happy to see them back to almost normal!!
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.
Best Restaurant hands down
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.
Easter dinner with family was very nice. Our waitress was superb and food was delicious.
Had a wonderful Easter dinner with friends. The food and service were fantastic. Seasons 52 has been one of our “go to” restaurants for great food and service lately.
Restaurant and servers are lovely, the food was fine.
Not worth repeating.
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!
Overall a decent meal. The side veggies seemed be all asparagus so there wasn’t much choice.
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
Always consistent with their food. We had an excellent time. Perfect night. Recommend the trout! It was delicious.
The strawberry basil martini was epic.
My filet mignon was great as was everything else. Tyler did a great job in serving us. A good time!
Great service and great food. We ate at a booth in the bar. Chilean Sea bass was excellent as well as desserts and sparkling Prosecco. One of our favorite places for great service and healthy delicious choices.
Great service and excellent food!
Great service! Casey was the best!

Always a pleasure going to Seasons 52. Amazing food and great service.
The staff at this location is outstanding! I love coming to this place for great food and Service! Thank you!
Staff much nicer than in the past
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.
Consistently maintained standards during ups and downs of restrictions.
Food is great, alcohol overpriced
Great service and lunch
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.
The food was great, Joni our server is great, the ambiance is great. We'll be back. In fact, this Saturday!
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.
Front staff upon arrival is always very nice and recognized us from previous visits, so wonderful. Our waiter, Chris was also amazing! Although I doon't know the bartenders name, he made the best dirty martini's with blue cheese olives! Thank you Season's!
Staff was generous and attentive, giving free champagne and dessert to celebrate a special anniversary.
Seasons 52 has become a restaurant that we frequent regularly
Great food selection minus chicken dishes and even better service
Amazing wine food and service
The food is excellent. I had the shrimp and grits and it was delicious! The service is superb. I have eaten at this restaurant dozens of times and it is consistently a real treat. Those little desserts are fun too!
