Had lunch with wife and a relative we had not seen in a long time. Sat for a long time exchanging stories at a quiet table. Ate a delicious meal.

It was a busy night, but that was no excuse for the slow and inattentive service we received. Seasons 52 can do better, and did do better on our previous visit.

Standard Season 52 american fare. VERY NOISY. On this evening they were not ready for the post theater crowd so were understaffed. If going to pre or post theater MAKE RESERVATIONS.

We had a great meal. Our server, Mustafa, was very attentive. Other servers came by and picked up empty appetizer plates.

We had a great time.

Thank you!

We did the Harvest Menu- it was GREAT! Excellent service, excellent wine and the ambiance is great as well. I always forget to apply my bill towards to the seasons 52 rewards so my only suggestion is that service staff asks guests if they have it so the meal can apply.

The service and food was outstanding. My wife has a rare food allergy and the staff was phenomenal. Also, they were great with out kids to make a 5 star experience. Not to mention the food was outstanding. Would make the 1.5 hour drive again.

It's the little things that restaurants often get wrong so a simple lightly dressed spinach salad made me very happy. Excellent, well- paced table service from Mustafa.

Our waitress knew the menu well, made useful recommendations about wine and food choices, and was attentive without being overbearing. The food itself was very tasty and fresh, plus nicely presented. We were there for a 21st anniversary and were delighted with the complimentary dessert and champagne cocktail. Very nice touch.

My wife’s meal was very good. Mine was inedible and missing part of main course as well. I was offered a replacement as my dining companions were about finished and declined. The manager asked me if I wanted him to comp our dinner and I declined as he should have SAID THAT HE WAS GOING TO COMP OUR DINER NOT ASKED. Second bad dining experience in a row. He did remove my dinner from the check.

This was a get-together of 6 friends. The setting was perfect-quiet for conversation. Some of us ordered the 3-Course Harvest Dinner, which offered excellent choices and a good value. The food was all delicious; some of us ordered salads, some salmon, some steak. Our server was also excellent; she was friendly and kept our orders straight and provided 6 separate checks. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Our server was great. However he placed the steak knife downward instead of upward. Shouldn’t it point upward like other knives? Also, my husband ordered the trout with NO potatoes. However, it arrived with potatoes. Our waiter quickly brought more carrots. Other than that, our food & experience were great.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on October 27, 2017

For a light meal, the gluten-free flatbread lobster pizza appetizer followed by a tasty salmon salad was excellent. The waitress brought the mini desserts which we couldn't deny and we indulged with the peanut butter and mocha mousse... unbelievably good! The final finale was the harvest wine special-made and kegged for the restaurant. As a California wine enthusiast, I highly recommend this harvest wine for a light, semi-sweet liquid dessert. Everything was so fantastic, we returned a second night during our business stay for the fixed-price menu and enjoyed the harvest wine for dessert once again. Loved everything about the place.

Went for friend’s birthday and had a very nice time. Food was great, and service was too. Started with the garlic pesto chicken flatbread which was not overpowering with garlic or pesto at all. My friend had the tuna and it was cooked perfectly with great grill flavor. I had the filet which was grilled nicely with perfect flavoring too. Finished with the pecan pie and chocolate mocha dessert. All was fantastic. Complimentary glasses of champagne at the end was a nice extra as well. Will definitely come back!

We have dined here frequently, but this occasion was a great disappointment. My scallops were over cooked, rubbery, and metallic tasting, and the risotto was pasty. I couldn’t finish either. My husband’s tuna steak was tough. We wonder whether the ownership has changed because the decline in quality was so substantial.
