Seasons 52 was great! I went with a pretty large group for my birthday; and we needed more seats and they were very accommodating the whole evening! Great experience every time I have been here!

As always, the food and drinks at Seasons 52 are fantastic, as is the service and ambiance. It was busy as usual but not so loud that we couldn’t hold a conversation. We will always come back to Seasons 52!

We had an early dinner on a Saturday after a performance at the Segerstrom Center. This restaurant has the potential to rate highly, however, they have packed too many tables into the dining room. We had a party of 5 which meant that one of our party partially blocked the isle and was constantly getting bumped. Food & service was good, however, again there are too many tables close together that detracts from the experience. Also, the noise level was extremely high which made it a challenge to have a conversation.

As always, our experience was outstanding! Part of that was because of our energetic, happy server Justin! Recommendations and service were on point. We love the seasonal menus, and enjoying the flavors of fall was no exception. Butternut squash soup, lamb shank, don’t miss the short rib lasagna....it is divine!

Nice restaurant in Costa Mesa and reasonably priced. They have a happy hour, but only in the bar, not the restaurant, which seems odd. Wine is not exorbitant, but a few glasses quickly add up. The mushroom flatbread was delicious, and we both had scallops which were plentiful and well prepared with squash risotto and veggies. Desserts are fun as they are in shot glasses, and just three bites, which is plenty. Our server, Alyssa, was attentive and speedy and the Manager, Matt, most concerned that we where enjoying our evening. Overall, a nice experience and I would recommend it as a place to consider for dinner before a concert or the Theatre.

Food was great -- we had the fall tasting menu and service was also fantastic. What we did not like was being given a booth in the bar and it was noisy with patrons at the bar. We always request the dining room and this time was not given that option although it was early 445 pm. Next time I will ask for a change.

I may be developing tennis elbow trying to add enough salt and pepper for SOME flavor. Green beans, mashed potatoes, and meatloaf/carrot cake all bland. No flavor at all except for the over powering carrots in the meat loaf. Service was good though.

This has been out pre or post theatre go-to place. Often it is VERY crowded. Service is consistently good. Food is good. (the desserts are wonderful--just the right size). However, they used to have a flatbread, wine flight that was our Fave. No longer. We are now thinking of trying other places, yes, just because they dumped our Fave.

Very disappointed, being a plant based eater (strict vegan) who consumes no oil or any animal, I had one of the worst times in ordering something to eat. The waitress was sweet but had to come and go several times to the cook (at this point I won't refer to using chef) saying what I can get or not get in this case. Not even a plain potato was available, due to the cook pre-making it and using oil and garlic, which I have a severe allergy to. I was told I could have a side of green beans and caulini. I received the tiniest plate with each item. The waitress was kind enough to offer to "refill" my plate, which I thought was kind and probably the right thing to do considering the severe lack of fresh produce available. I did ask for another caulini which she brought. I got the check, paid then left. I got home and looked at the bill as it was a bit dark in the restaurant to see. I noticed that I was charged for "double caulini"!! So much for the refill. It was $11 which isn't much but when you receive very little it's upsetting. And when told what I assumed to be no charge for the "refill". I can say I will never return, I felt I was hassled and the cook clearly couldn't have cared less what I ate. I used to enjoy this place years ago, when they were considerate to our health, but the days of 440 calories and below are gone. And I have no trouble in any restaurant asking for fresh veggies with no oil but sadly S52 now pre-cooks their food so it is not made to order. Last time I will ever dine here again.

This has always been one of my favorite restaurants and has never been idisappointed. But this last visit I ordered a Cosmopolitan. I look forward to having one and they are always excellent. My friend and I both got one and they tasted really sweet. Like fruit juice. Neither one of us tasted any alcohol. Almost like cranberry juice with pineapple and orange. I was so disappointed because I had told my friend how good they are. I really didn’t want a fruit juice drink. Dinner was amazing and the service is always top notch. Don’t think I will be ordering another drink there. I’ll stick with wine.
