I made reservations and was seated upon arrival. It was a very mature and relaxing ambience. The food was excellent. The prices were reasonable as well. Highly recommend.

The only reason we did not give Seasons 52 5-stars is because of the front-end experience. We have NEVER dined there that we haven't been made to wait a minimum of 20 minutes, and sometimes up to an hour, even when we've had reservations. The hostesses are perfunctorily civil, but not particularly warm or apologetic (perhaps because they get a regular earful from other patrons with the same experience...we notice there are ALWAYS people waiting, also with reservation). Scheduling and time management are problematic for management at the Oak Brook venue. So is training on how to accomodate repeat customers. If it were not for the food and the servers themselves, who are relentlessly customer-oriented and gracious, we would not keep coming back. As it is, we do second-guess this restaurant as a first choice, only because we know we can count on wasting an hour waiting for our table.

It took extraordinarily long to get water... drinks... 1 hr to get our entree....
it was so loud, you had to shout to hear
Our vegan gnocchi was excellent and so were the Brussel sprouts.
I’m sorry, but I’m not I would go back because of the extreme noise level

Unfortunately in their need to fill the place as full as possible they have 2 very small round tables crammed into the very back corner. The space is extremely cramped and the hostess even had a hard time trying to find a way to walk between the other tables to get back there. Disappointed that I had a reservation and then still had to wait to be seated and in such a horrible area. The same table behind us was turned down twice by two other reservations saying these tables were unacceptable and I agree. Will consider other restaurants to avoid similar circumstance.

I've been dinning in Seasons 52 regularly but when I took my fiance for Valentine's day there the experience was not as nice as the previous times. I had reservation for 8pm and we got seated at 8:45pm so the restaurant was overbooked and the wait time was crazy. I've asked for booth and they said that they only had tables available so on the way to the table I saw at least 2 booths available but didn't bother to complain cause we were so hungry. The table they gave us was in the middle between 2 doors where everyone walks by and servers were bumping in my chair. We asked the server for some recommendations and he recommended the lasagna for my fiance so we asked him if there is a lot of mushrooms and he said that you can't even taste them but there were big chunks of mushrooms and mostly mushrooms so my fiance couldn't eat it. The manager noticed that and they switched it to the gnocchi but when we got those they were overcooked and a little burned. Also there was a table across of ours where an older couple was grinding and making out and no one said or did anything even though was so inappropriate. That's so unacceptable for fine dinner restaurant. Anyways, the drinks, the appetizers and the desserts were good and we'll still come back to dine there but not during a holiday or on a Saturday, they can't really plan well when they are too busy.

We really enjoyed this spot. Didn’t start off so well with the hostess failing to check us in which resulted us waiting and extra half hour to be seated, after we checked in a half early. The manager however, did make it up to us and we had a lovely rest of our Valentine’s evening. Food was delicious and drinks were better. 5 stars

The filet was outstanding. The desserts were fabulous. I was not thrilled about our little table with the small chairs which were somewhat stuck in a corner. I felt like we were in overflow area.

Our steaks were given to another table so we had to wait 20 min. more for our food. No comp due to there screw up. Poor judgment on the waiter & manager not to at least pick up our deserts.

I made this reservation a while back for lunch. It was Valentine’s Day and we got seated against a wall way in the back of a banquet space with only one other table seated there. The host was very rude to me when I checked in and don’t not even smile.

Awesome, as usual! My guest had several food allergies, so the chef gave us a visit and helped choose options, I thought that was a really nice touch!

I always have a good experience with this restaurant but recently it was even better because is was very quiet due to weather conditions. The waiter was very helpful and the environment was more quiet and conducive to conversation with my partner.
