We well extremely well treated at Seasons52 for my husband's birthday dinner. A special dessert was made for him and we were given champagne to toast at no charge. The food and service are excellent. Regrettably like many restaurants today the noise level was high. The art of eating dinner and enjoying conversation seems to be lost. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

We had 6 people on a round table. Everyone was happy with the food they ordered. It was difficult to hear across the table as the restaurant was a full capacity on a Wed. and the din was a little high. Was decent for a business dinner.

The food was good and so was the service. We were celebrating two birthdays and we had plenty of time to eat and chat and were not rushed at all. Our server Steven was attentive but not overbearing. He brought us a beautiful tray of small desserts with a candle to celebrate the birthdays!

Even though I was the only person dining I was seated at a nice booth by the window in the quieter bar area. I tried one of their signature drinks, the pomegranate margarita martini, which was not only delicious but the silver container contained enough for 2 drinks. The sesame crusted salmon salad had a sizable amount of salad served with the entire piece of salmon visible to start and quantities of fresh greens and tropical fruit. The service, as always, was very attentive/

The service was haphazard, and the quality of the food was disappointing. The place is very noisy - it is crowded, which can indicate that it is a good place. However, I picked it from a review on Tripadvisor and have noticed that sometimes, and in some places, Burger King is the highest-rated restaurant in town. The reviews made it sound very appealing, however in Princeton - where I dined - there are so many original, non-chain restaurants that offer a much better experience, better service, and higher quality food in the same price range. It made me wonder whether the ratings shown for the Princeton restaurant were for that specific Seasons52 (it's a chain) or for all of them, combined.

Seasons 52 Princeton is reliably excellent, the food is always top-notch and the service is always friendly. There can be a bit of a wait for drinks and to be seated during peak hours, even with a reservation, but the wait times are not unacceptably long.

I usually enjoy this restaurant, but really felt rushed this time. Shortly after 9 pm, the the staff immediately started to clean the floor, thus making it obvious that they wanted us to leave. It is inconsiderate to do that while folks are still dining and engaged in conversation.

This is the second chance for my husband. The first time years ago he was so excited to see Venison on the menu. We went there for our anniversary. The chop that was served was the size of 1 baby lamb chop. He vowed he would never go back. After experiencing a nice happy hour he saw the short ribs on the menu. We gave it another try. My filet mignon was perfect. Just right for me. He experienced another small portion situation. We spoke with the waitress. She was very kind and understanding. She did say unfortunately the two items you ordered were of a smaller portion. That should be noted. I know you have calorie amounts next to the item, however, that doesn’t give one an idea of portion size. My husband will not return. We could of gone up the road to a very popular restaurants he just thought going to Seasons 52 that it was something different. Thank you for asking. It’s importantbto hear good and not so good feed back. Changes keep you going....

We have dined at Seasons 52 many times and usually have a pleasant experience, not this time. Our server which I won't name was a dud! She took our order and then we pretty much never saw her, no water refills, no "do you need anything". We ordered a hamburger medium and a salad topped with salmon - both items came out overcooked. She didn't show up for a while - then semi offered to replace the items - by then it was over for us! When she came with the check her comment to us was "sorry it was a mediocre lunch". I guess that about sums it up!

Our friendly and knowledgeable waiter, Aaron, provided excellent service. Always nice to see the manager, James, stop by to say hello. You can't go wrong with anything here. We like to sit in the booths in the bar since it feels cozier. This time I was surprised to see several small children in the bar area especially a few who seemed to be running around unsupervised. Poses a danger especially to servers. Otherwise, we'll keep returning to Seasons. Have tried every one of their mini-desserts and love them all.
