Traveling so booked while driving. Showed up and realized was in shopping mall center. Thought "how good can mall food be" Boy was I wrong. What a wonderful experience, service was five star, stuffed mushrooms were the best I've ever had. Service was spot on , food was prepared perfect, ordered the cedar plank salmon my dining partner ordered filet....both were exceptional. Server finished off by bringing by a variety of desserts in shot glasses. Wow! Lot of flavor in such a small portion ...just enough to finish off a truly wonderful meal and experience.

Four of us from work were at a conference nearby. One of my colleagues is Vegan, and based on other reviews, this sounded like a good choice. It certainly was. We had a wide range of meals, and everyone felt that the food was delicious. The alcohol - whether wine (their “specialty”) or cocktails - was good, but a bit pricey. Overall, we had a great time dining outdoors.

I am used to navigating menus to find what is safe for me to eat with my allergies. Here it was nearly impossible since almost everything is marinated in garlic oil/broth before cooking. The menu doesn’t alert the diner to this fact and so thankfully I asked. Trying to get something safe for me to eat was a challenge. The waiter initially refused to let me speak to the chef. When I finally got up from the table and went to the kitchen on my own the waiter followed and intervened before I could speak to the chef. Once the chef came over he assured me he could accommodate me with plain sea bass, steamed spinach and mashed potato. None would have garlic, onion or gluten, all which are major allergens for me. The next day I was terribly sick which is an indication that the food was not prepared as promised. I would not recommend this location/restaurant for anyone that needs allergy safe meals.

We had a wonderful dinner with family & friends. It was a bit noisier than usual but ok. Wish you would use your first recipe for the basil ricotta chicken...it was better than what you’re doing now. It’s a bit too dry now. The sea bass was excellent but I was disappointed that there were no vegetables served with it. Some green beans or snap peas would have been nice.

I characterize restaurants like this as production houses. They are competent enough but there isn't a lot of true intimacy.. a lot of waiters come to your table, the service is rote, the volume of food moving out of the kitchen is impressive, but sort of assembly-line quality. There is a fair amount of gimmicky stuff going on (like their dessert caddy and the teeny tiny desserts they fit into small shot-like cups).

Still... we had a good dinner and the service was well-trained and practiced. Didn't get a lot of love, but we got in, ate well, and got out.

The filet was so tender, I could cut it with a fork. The flavor was about the best I've ever had.
Even though it was cold outside, the patio heaters made it the perfect temperature for both of us. It was beautiful being seated right next to the fire features that they have. The server remembered us from previous visits and was personable and attentive.
We've been here a lot, and it is always good, but this was the best date we've had there!

We ordered the Valentine's Eve meal for two—the surf and turf meal plus a glass of wine for each of us. We enjoyed both the steak and lobster and the green bean and little roasted potatoes are also very tasty.

I love Seasons 52 and have a favorite booth. This time I was celebrating my birthday and after a brief wait because someone was wrongly seated in my booth, the restaurant brought us champagne and then we had a terrific lunch of a shared flatbread and the salmon salad. Needless to say, we finished up with one of the scrumptious deserts. Just a great place with wonderful food.

Always great food at a reasonable price. Sea bass and scallops were awesome. This was a business dinner and everyone enjoyed! Would have been nice for the person checking us in to let OpenTable know so I could get my points. I got a message saying that we were a No Show. Front staff needs to be more attentive to this.

It was a perfect celebration for my family celebrating my dad’s 94th birthday! The food was delicious, the ambiance ideal, and the service was superb. Our waitress made us all feel special and expertly and cheerfully met our diverse needs, 10 of us from 2-94!
The extra touches from the birthday card to the complimentary appetizer, birthday dessert and champagne toast made it a celebration remember. Thank you Seasons 52 team for all your extra efforts, it made a difference (especially for my dad!)

Consistently good. Lots of delicious menu items. Service is efficient and friendly.
Why do restaurants ask if it’s a “special occasion” but then do nothing to acknowledge your special occasion? I said in my reservation that we were celebrating birthdays (it was 2 out of 3 of our birthday). I don’t expect a party but come on, comp a $3.00 dessert or make some effort. I shouldn’t have to ask once we are there. It’s the little touches that would make me want to return.

Very satisfied overall. Exceptional sea bass and excellent scallops and salmon.
Very quiet. Eight people at a single table could easily communicate.
The only negative is that the restaurant is pricey considering portion sizes, especially the appetizers.

Glad I used Open Table when I was a block away. I got seated before others standing there!!! 😁
Love the risotto instead of potatoes which are ordinary. The pineapple upside down cake best dessert I have had there.
My one complaint is my friend is allergic to garlic so hard to find anything on menu here or anywhere that doesn’t already have garlic added. So over done with garlic, cilantro , salt in most restaurants.
Our waitress was superb looking to find dishes that had no garlic in them! Especially for restaurant week menu.
My favorite risotto last summer was the corn one!!! Best if there by 11:30 because noise level gets really high by 12:15.
