Thanksgiving reservations were at 7:00pm. We were seated at 8:00pm and had our entries past 9:00pm. Although we did receive complimentary dessert, it was unfortunate that the service took so long after we checked in at 6:45pm. Food was great. However, the delay in seating and being served almost made us go home. Knowing this time of year gets busy, it is fortunate that the restaurant or owner did not plan well enough to make arrangements in making their guest’s experience enjoyable.

Went there for Thanksgiving dinner. Even though there was an hour wait with a reservation, overall it was a great experience. The food was awesome! Thanksgiving plates were great, the crab cake and lobster bisque were just oh so yummyyy.

If I was Seasons 52, I would learn what places like Snooze AM do for guests waiting to be seated - on a rainy day and you know you are booked with all of the reservations for Thanksgiving: put an outdoor canopy/tent, tables and seats, heaters and complimentary coffee and tea.......give your guests a proper holiday welcome outside of the “normal” service once the patrons have been seated

Great food and service on a busy Thanksgiving Day. Our server Anthony was attentive even though the restaurant was packed with others. S52 never disappoints!

We arrived 10min prior to our reservation and didn't have to wait long. The hostess seated us (party of 3) at a "cocktail" table in the bar even though there were 2 booths next to us available. We asked to be moved but they said they "had a system". We also complained to our waiter and asked to be moved. He checked and told us "they had a system". The table was so small we could barely fit all our food on it. The other booths remained open almost halfway through our meal. The first booth was filled with 2 elderly people and the other booth was filled with 3 people older than us. I guess their "system" was to put people who looked physically able to "perch" on cocktail tables and seat those older at the more comfortable booths.

Always enjoy this place. A great place to gather for lunch to catch up with friends. The staff is always patient with our lingering while we visit. The food is wonderful but . . . it's a place that's more than about the food.

We enjoy this restaurant a lot and often go for celebratory meals. This time we had a 3 and 1/2 year old in tow. Our waiter made her feel so special and so grown up. Everything was great. Thank you, Moses!

Due to the fire alarm system going on we had to evacuate to the street. Management was not in control of the situation and staff was clueless. It is obvious ongoing safety training is required especially since we were told it occurs periodically due to a problem with the alarms in the complex. Our food had not beem served beforehand so when we returned to the table it was obvious it had been sitting under the heating lamps the whole time we were on the street. All other guests were also inconvenienced as their meals had to be started from scratch. The primary concern is the lack of urgency and management incompetence in an emergency situation. Our waiter was excellent despite the challenges.

We had a group of six attending a conference have dinner here. The food was very good and reasonably priced. We ordered two $100 plus bottles of wine, but the bartender seemed more occupied with serving half-price happy hour drinks than getting us wine with our dinner. We actually stopped eating to wait for our wine. It wasn't our server's fault, who eventually went behind the bar herself and got the wine (which I am sure did not win her points with the bartender). The server did forget our vegetable sides, but the manager finally delivered them and they were not on the check. We ate two nights earlier at a supposedly more upscale steak house but the food was better here and the prices half as much. My only suggestion would be to prioritize your dinner guests who are ordering expensive bottles of wine over half-price happy hour cocktails.

This was an excellent restaurant with stellar service, we were brought complimentary glasses of champagne for our anniversary which was a completely unexpected surprise that made the experience all that much better, food was excellent, only thing I could even remark about would be the noise level was a little elevated, but we certainly didn’t mind it at all.

We love this restaurant, the romantic lighting and the beautiful harbor so close for an afternoon stroll. We have always had excellent food and customer service. The manager always stops by all the tables to make sure you are having an excellent experience. This anniversary I reserved a table and upon arrival rose petals, beautiful card and champagne were waiting for us. Adam was our waiter, Daniel has always been our favorite waiter but now we have two favorite waiters.

The food was good for the price! It was not too expensive. However, the service was especially slow. And the staff kept saying - we are really backed up tonight. However, Daniel - our waiter - was very attentive and always checked in with us. All in all, the experience was good!

Anthony G - our server, IS AWESOME! He deserves 5 STARS! He definitely made our lunch time dining experience pleasant. He asked if we were under any time constraints, being mindful if we needed to get back to work, he was very efficient which allowed us to enjoy, not feel rushed and get back to the office in a timely manner. Kudos to Anthony!

The team at Seasons 52 was great! We were there for a business meeting with clients and it was very quiet and we got exactly the kind of attention we needed to impress our clients! Our server was amazing and checked with the chef regarding ingredients since I have food allergies. Someone from the sales team even came out to ask us how everything was. We will definitely be back in the future.
