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 52 world-class wines by the glass and signature cocktails. Lunch and dinner daily, happy hour Monday through Friday. More at Seasons52.com.

Disappointed with entrée of flatbread and Caesar salad - too much lemon in sauce of lobster flatbread and Caesar dressing was very bland, too much cheese on salad - large pieces of lettuce made it difficult to eat. I didn't want to say anything as I was the guest of my lunch partner.

The perfect place to go for an intimate dinner. Great ambiance with live piano player singing Christmas tunes. Brought my Girlfriend here for her birthday she loved it. Highly recommend any of the flat bread options as they are a great appetizer. I would definitely dress in at least business casual. High end feel and vibe with a very affordable price tag.

It blows me away that Seasons 52 can be this good and it’s a chain restaurant. There are not many places where nearly everything on the menu looks tasty. This of course makes it difficult to choose. The service is always friendly and attentive, and they take note of your special occasion and make it actually special. I always look forward to a visit here.

We went there for Thanksgiving dinner and ordered one Turkey dinner for $32 and their two signature seafood dishes. The taste was absolutely great as always and there was live music played by musician at the bar which made the ambiance really pleasant

The Thanksgiving dinner we ordered was excellent. The waitress who served us was simply outstanding. I don’t remember her name (May be Jen). The wine ordered was very good. In spite of the big crowd, we were seated almost on time. I will GE there, for sure, next a Thanksgiving too.

We had a fantastic first-time dining experience to this Seasons 52 location in the South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa. We are long time fans of the Chestnut Hill, MA and King of Prussia, PA locations, and this location lives up to the reputation and food/service quality that we have come to expect from this chain. This establishment is highly recommended.

The entire operation on Thanksgiving was well orchestrated -- hot and tasty food, their best servers, and a holiday spirit that didn't feel rushed. Hats off to the entire SEASONS 52 team and management!!

Excellent contemporary American cuisine with seasonal elements. Good wine selection and attentive service. The booths are comfortable but a bit tight for seating but otherwise I can only recommend this restaurant.

We always enjoy our dining experience at Season's 52 altho depending on where you sit, the noise level can get a little "energetic" for conversation. Still one of our favorites.

First time ever at Season 52 with poor service. It was not even busy...and yet the service was quite slow. Then the wrong entrée was delivered, by the time the right entrée was delivered, everyone else at the table was done eating. When the entrees were delivered I asked how they knew which one was medium and which one was well done. The service attendant said it is determined by seat placement and each guest has a number for their seat. Unfortunately, they got it all wrong. The manager came to our table and said she was sorry and they took $30 off the bill for the wrong entrée. But the bigger issue was the slow service and one coming to refill water, ice tea, or coffee. Meals served with no forks, no spoons, they had been removed with appetizer plates. We were seated in the bar so maybe they staff wait service personnel differently. We liked that it was cozy and more quiet than in the main restaurant; however, the service was very disappointing. Food was great and Season 52 is still one of my first choices...but would not sit in the bar again.

Great experience. Had the sea bass and it was really good. Ordered the brussel sprouts and they weren’t the crispy kind I was expecting, but the manager took care of it, which was nice. Service was great. Had a live piano player on a Tuesday night which was really nice.

Came away feeling hungry. Not that I want a huge portion but something more than a couple of bites would be nice. It was tasty, just small for the price.
