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.

This restaurant is consistently excellent. It's one of our go-to's when we have theatre tickets, or when we're just doing some shopping at SCP. The mushroom flatbread was delicious, and I really enjoyed my seared tuna salad. The best part is that I don't feel guilty after eating here. Outstanding service, too!

Having dinner here previously I was looking forward to a girl’s night out. We had reservations for a table in the dining room, but found a booth in the bar and opted for that instead. Though the service was good, the bar was a bad selection for a group of friends looking to talk and get caught up since it was so loud from the pianist in the middle of the bar entertaining. We decided to split appetizers and flatbreads. The food was lackluster and had almost no flavor. The dessert was okay, but nothing to write home about. I unfortunately left hungry because I wanted to eat more, but didn’t want to risk spending the money on something else and not liking it.

We always enjoy Seasons 52, but since our last visit, my husband has needed to go on a pretty restrictive limited ingredient diet and our server was SO incredibly accommodating in helping him figure out and customize different dishes that would work for him. Her service overall was top notch, but she went above and beyond in helping him.

We were warmly welcomed on our arrival. Seating was comfortable. All of us reported our starters, entrees and desserts were delicious and beautifully presented. Our 5:00 pm arrival resulted a low noise level, great for conversation. By 6:30 when we finished, the noise level was moderate. Dinner at Seasons is consistently enjoyable.

I was lucky to be seated with my friend near the Napa Room in the back, so it was a bit quieter than the rest of the restaurant, which is often extremely loud. The wait staff was great and attentive and the apps, dinner and desserts were all amazing.

Loved it tonight! It was a very busy night for them, but they did everything they can to make it a special meal and they did great with such a group of people. Thanks to Megan our server for her patience and nice smile for the entire meal. Even though it was very busy, the food was on point, timely and tasty. So, Thank you. As always, you never disappoint! Until next time

This experience was much better than my husband's and my last experience at this location. We went for dinner for my birthday and before our evening show at SCFTA. We were warmly greeted, I was given a birthday card, and taken to our table outside on the patio, which was much quieter than inside. Our server, Lexi, was attentive, asked what time we wanted to make sure we left for our show so we got out on time, had great suggestions, and was just a pleasure. We have no reservations about dining here again and would recommend it to anyone.

What made the dining experience a 5-star was server Erik. We were celebrating a co-worker leaving to go back to Japan after completing his two-year assignment in the United States. He was a valuable member of the company and we were to sad to see him leave with his pregnant wife.

This is the first time me and Max dined at Season's 52. My boss actually dined at Season's 52 one week earlier with a consultant and enjoyed it so much that he wanted to bring us for the farewell luncheon.

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and quantity of the food. Erik made the experience an enjoyable one and was attentive, personable and pro-active when refilling beverages, hot water and ice water. Thanks Erik for the great meal!!!!

Service was not up to the same quality that we have experienced at this location in the past.

Drinks were forgotten, and at one point the runner held a hot plate and reached it across the table in the face and over the belly of a pregnant woman.

We eat here frequently and are never disappointed. This last visit we ordered lobster tail (quite good) and drawn butter was not offered. I think it should have been.

It’s one of my favorite places. Make sure to sit in one of the booths by the piano. It’s fun listening to the music and the food is delicious.

Great food for a decent price! The wine by the glass seemed a little pricy, but the food cost made up for it. Our server Jerod was awesome! He went above and beyond throughout the meal and made us feel like he was our host for the night. I will definitely be going back:)

It was my first time to Seasons 52 and it did not disappoint! The food was absolutely delicious and fresh tasting. I am a vegetarian and there were many options to chose from! The mushroom flatbread was divine. My favorite part was the giant dessert medley that came out. We only chose 3 because we were so full. The peanut butter chocolate dessert was the best! I highly recommend this restaurant if you love delicious food and great service!

We loved it at Seasons 52 being it our first time. Our server Lindsey was excellent. Food was good! Over all I would give it 3.5/4 stars out of 5 because the place is too loud. You got somebody playing piano at the bar area. Then you have music blaring over head going between the pianist and their sound system? Hope they can balance the two to make it a more enjoyable evening. Also lastly, we were celebrating a bday and the they could also do a better job of presenting a dessert/cake than two brown sugar containers with a candle.

We’ve eaten here before and really enjoyed the food. We were a bit disappointed this time. My sea bass tasted bland and the glaze was much too sweet for me. My husband’s steak was cooked to perfection but the seasoning was unusual masking the true meat flavor. We may try it again, maybe wait for a change in menu.

It was a date night with my husband. We sat on the patio. Glad we did because it was too loud inside for us. We looked at the parking lot but it’s ok because you see the hustle and bustle of the South Coast area all the way across Bristol and the Performing Arts centers. The weather outside was perfect. Our server was very friendly and catered to our needs even without asking. The food was excellent!! The food came out pretty quickly. She asked if we were going to the Arts and we said yes. She said she would make sure we got out in plenty of time. Our reservation on Friday night for the performance was at 8pm. Our reservation at Seasons was 6pm. We were not rushed by them or ourselves and we were done in plenty of time. It was a very nice experience. If you eat inside, just be prepared for lots of noise. It’s tight quarters and they had a musician singing and playing in the middle of the bar. I listened to him as I passed by to go use the restroom. He was very good. I would recommend this restaurant.

Service was great, but we had a reservation and at first were seated at the kitchen entrance with views of the sink and computers then we were moved to a table that was shoved in a back corner.
