My husband and I have been here numerous times and the food is always good. This time service was just okay and it was really crowded. We were seated at the tables in the bar area which we did not like due to the fact that people coming into the bar would stand around next to your table and drink and talk. The next time I go back I will make sure I’m not seated in that area. Food as I said is always good just wish they gave a little more.

This place has absolutely delicious food. We've gone twice for special occasions and it blew us away both times. Really fresh-tasting ingredients, great wine, great cocktails, mouth watering desserts, and the changing seasonal menu means you can try something different every time you go! I highly recommend their 3 course dinner for $30, it's great value for all the food you get.

Gustavo was our waiter and he was excellent. The Cadmus Flight was good. The green beans needed a little more seasoning but scallops and salmon was on point. The chopped Greek Salad was divine

Service was great but the food wasn’t. It lacked flavor and was poorly presented (especially for the price). The crowd is older so even for a date night it may seem ehh if you’re younger. Although our server and the manager were both great I will not return. It just was not my cup of tea. I’m a foodie and their meals (nor drinks) did it for me.

The food preparation and presentation were wonderful. We ordered the avocado toast and one of the mushroom flatbreads. They were both exceptionally tasty and delivered to our table without a long wait. It is nice to arrive to a restaurant, get a glass of wine and then not be left with a long gap before any food arrives. That usually sends the ones of us that are hungry on arrival into a search for the bread and more bread. Instead we were offered drinks and then our appetizers came out shortly thereafter. The salmon was exceptional and the sea bass. My brother raved about his chicken dish and how moist and flavorful it was. I am so pleased to find a friendly and cozy restaurant with great food and great service.

We had a family visit over dinner. The menu is varied and seasonal, for all palates. We enjoy this restaurant for special meals with family and friends.

We chose to dine at Seasons 52 so we could have the ’Roots & Vine’ three course meal with friends we hadn’t seen in a while so we could have a leisurely meal to ‘catch-up.’ We asked the waiter to please give us ample time between courses. However, not once but twice our food was brought before we were finished with the previous course! It made us feel like you couldn’t get us out fast enough. The meal sure wasn’t fun or relaxing. It was very disappointing. I guess the next time we visit Seasons 52 we’ll make sure that we are in a hurry!

P.S. I would recommend Seasons 52 but would tell friends to go when in a hurry!

We were pressed for time having arrived late due to a heavy rainstorm and had to eat and drive over to Strathmore in time for an 8PM curtain. We were assured that we would make it easily and yes, staff was excellent with their advice on food and the swiftness of service.
We'll be going back for a more leisurely meal.

We always enjoy the food but we were seated near the kitchen and find that area noisy. We requested to move and enjoyed our meal.

1sr time dining here with my husband. I ordered one of 3 steak entrees. Waiter came back and said my entree sold out,my next selection not available either.Last choice was filet mignon which I ordered medium rare.When meal came it was very rare -I told waiter and he sent it back. Side of green beans awful and my husband side of broccoli also hard and tasteless-needed to be cut with steak knife
Kitchen has issues. As soon as we sat down we felt very rushed through the meal. Will not dine there again-should have gone to Black Market Bistro

Our table of 4 enjoyed what we ordered. The menu has a lot of options, and I think anybody will find something, or several somethings that they will enjoy. The décor is very enjoyable, and service was very good.

I usually like to come to Seasons 52. But I will say I was a little disappointed in the meal this time. The steak was a little salty. Our waiter was very good-very attentive. That was Franklin. I think the kitchen was slow- it took quite a while for us to get our food for dinner. We had the roasted cauliflower for an appetizer, that was not roasted even. We have had it in the past and it has been very good.

The Fall Root & Vine special menu offers beef, lamb, and fish meals for $30. A very good deal. We very much like the selection of wines at Seasons 52. Good choices and reasonable prices. The food an service have always been outstanding.

Loud, overcrowded. They brought extra tables in from outside. Customers and the waitstaff kept bumping all of our chairs trying to get between all the extra tables. Too many people, it made the room very noisy.

The food, especially the soup and cooked vegetables, were a bit too salty. The fish was good, but the meat, despite being cooked medium rare, was quite tough.

Four of us for dinner. One dish was inedible. Two other dishes barely so. I have been to this restaurant many times. Kitchen needs to aim for consistency and quality. I will give them one more chance.

We love Seasons 52. Sat in the bar area and had a really nice meal. Chloe, our server, was very nice and attentive. We generally like the bar area as the open dining room can get a bit loud.

My wife and I took her brother and sister-in-law to Seasons 52 for a delightful dinner. We knew that the food would be great and that there would be plenty of choices. We and our out of town guests were not disappointed. Great tasting food, well displayed, and nice atmosphere (although a little noisy). We hope to return soon.
