All very good but waitress really worked hard to rush us and turn table over-to the point of being rude and interrupting us several times during the evening.

Kyle was an excellent server. Chef checked in on us to see how we liked our meal. Round corner booth was perfect for catching up with old friends. Great experience.

This is the first time we have had complaints about the service. The waitress seemed like she was anxious for us to leave. The kept checking ... way too frequently ... to take our order. But, worse, our meals arrived the second we finished the salad. Not fine dining by our standards.

Only negative comment is the portion sizes. Needed a magnifying glass to find the beets in my salad and the sea bass on my plate...shared the the sea bass with my date and after giving her a piece, there was only 1.5 bites left.

Wonderful calorie conscious meals. A favorite spot for us. Met for lunch with old time friends. Main dining room was very loud so we opted for a booth in the bar. It was quiet and the bar tender was our waitress. Good friendly service and allowed us to take our time ordering so we could catch up but we talked for awhile and she did not check back but we got her attention and food was promptly ordered and provided. Over all highly recommend this restaurant

The Menu changes with the Seasons and often at least monthly. I prefer this time of year when the food is more substantial. They also offer a Three Course Menu that includes: Salad or Soup, Main Course and a dessert. Beverages are always separate. The value for what you order falls within the more moderate for the Oak Brook. Parking can be a challenge at times, there is free Valet Parking after 5:00p.m. during the day you're on your own.

Nice place...one of our favorites. Our waiter was "Danny".....he was absolutely outstanding.......please pass this comment on to him. Only complaint....you NEVER have room in your bar for drinks/socializing or even waiting for your table....it's always filled with people eating....EVEN AT THE BAR. For that reason alone, we avoid Friday and Saturday nights. When we know we're going to have a pre and post dinner drink....we go elsewhere.

Enjoyed our dinner at Seasons 52. Our salad was very good. My salmon dish was excellent and my wife’s scallop dish was very good. The Caymus wine selection was excellent, it included a wine flight of one white Caymus and two reds all very good. Price was reasonable. The noise level was reasonable so we could enjoy talking with our guests. The flatbread appetizer with lobster was just so-so, the broccoli side dish was also just so-so. Our server was excellent. This is a dependable restaurant.

Good service, nice atmosphere and awesome food & drinks. Southern style Shrimp & Grits were fantastic and the Filet Mignon was perfectly prepared and nearly tender enough to cut with a fork.

We were a party of 8 for my mom’s 86th birthday. We enjoyed the variety of food - all well prepared. It was helpful to have the calories listed - especially for members in our party watching weight. Everything delicious!

I’ve been here many times and usually everything is perfect. This time coffee cup had someone else’s lipstick. Flat bread came out way late and a little burnt. Management comped us the flat bread and dessert. They made it right.

A post theater dinner for my wife and I. Our server was outstanding. My steak was excellent, my wife’s lasagna was okay but nothing special. Crab cake was very good and we like their small dessert options but others might want more. Overall, a very satisfactory evening but my wife will likely not order the lasagna again.

It’s was my friend’s first time at Seasons 52. She liked it very much. Our server was friendly and professional. The food portions were just enough.
One suggestion... the lighting was very dark for a 12:00 noon lunch. It was difficult to see each other’s faces.

We had a large group of friends celebrating lots of birthdays, and this was a great place for that! The menu was so full of good choices - for different tastes and dietary needs - that we all had a hard time deciding what to order. But everyone was very happy with their meals! We all love the mini desserts, too; they are so decadent, but just the right size for an indulgent treat to finish off a delicious meal. We were treated to a champagne toast as well, which was a wonderful and much-appreciated surprise!

For the first time I had their steak-usually I order seafood. Oh wow. The steak was DELICIOUS. I actually did their 3 course menu and was not disappointed. The steak came with roasted Brussels sprouts and a mushroom brandy sauce. If I could have licked my plate, I would have! My friend had a barbecue chicken salad which she was equally making yummy noises. We were seated in their back room and noise was much quieter than their main room. We, of course, both had dessert. We love the bite size selection.

We typically have a good experience at this restaurant. However with this reservation for our group of 11, I had requested to be seated in the back room and not in the separate section up front by the kitchen where they normally seat us. That request was overlooked because that’s exactly where we were seated, by the kitchen. I did mention this error to a manager, and he seemed to dismiss me. I didn’t want to be moved, I just wanted him to know they need to read their reservations more carefully.

Our server was nice but seemed to forget about us. We were left waiting for over 10 minutes to order food after we’d received our drinks. So we’d already been there 20 minutes by this time. I should mention this was a weekday during lunch; so we were not drinking alcohol or taking a 3 hour break.

I will go back to Seasons 52 but it may be a while.

Service was very poor. We have been coming here since it opened but things have changed. The person taking us to our seat looked miserable. We had to wait quite a while before server came to take our order. Another server brought our food and our server never came back once to see how we were doing, if we wanted more wine or dessert. We finally asked for our bill. We had to wait ..again..as he was taking garbage out until he saw us waiting for him. Very disappointing.
