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.

We arrived 40 minutes early. Walked up to the podium and was called by name! Brittany greeted us warmly with a smile and we were immediately seated near the bar. With in a few seconds, our waiter was asking if we would like something to drink while we looked over the menu. He wasn't gone but 2 minutes before showing up with our beverages of choice. The dining experience was excellent. The food was delicious. I would highly recommend this chain of restaurants to anyone who could afford it.

We dined on a Sunday evening at 7 PM. Food and service were excellent. The only reason I gave it a four star review was the noise level was pretty high as we started dinner. Overtime it diminished as people left. It would be nice to provide additional sound deadening, if that’s possible.

I had a private party for 20 yesterday for my mom's 70th birthday party. The entire staff was so helpful in setting up, serving, and finalizing our party. They were very attentive and ensured our party went well. We had one of the private rooms which had its own audio and visual set up. I was able to bring own own decor which personalized the space a bit. And, of course, the food was delicious! We had a few first timers in our group and they complimented the food over and over. Thank you Seasons 52 for making my mom's birthday special!

We had a booth near the kitchen which was quite comfy. I ordered the beet salad and cedar plank salmon and my husband ordered the pork. Both of my dishes were great. My husband liked his a lot, although he would have preferred the pork be on regular mashed potatoes rather than sweet potatoes. (He had never had this dish before). The service could not have been better. We will be back!

I have eaten here many times and the food is consistently good. This time I had the steak salad which was perfectly cooked and seasoned well. The only reason I didn't give it 5 starts was because the service was a little slow that night but it was crowded as well.

What an incredible evening! We went to dinner at Seasons 52 last night for a MNO and two birthday celebrations. Upon arriving we were escorted to a private dining room and given complimentary glasses of champagne. Shortly thereafter a server brought us complimentary amuse bouches of tuna tartar with cucumber. Everyone loved what they ordered from the menu, which is rare for a group of eight! Some of the big hits were the scallops, gnocchi, artichoke and hummus appetizer, and mushroom flatbread. At the end of our meal the server brought complimentary desserts for the birthday girls and roses. Truly it was a lovely dining experience start to finish with exceptional food and service. I will absolutely be recommending this restaurant and returning in the future!

Was in area for other reasons. Always enjoy, so popped in to check out the latest “Season” post holiday time. Both the filet mignon and brick oven Chilean Sea Bass were excellent.

Will not hesitate to return, however, may ask to be seated in lounge, as it is quieter there than dining room due to finishes, and lower ceiling.

Went here for the first time on New Year’s Eve...The host (female) talked back and the bartender (male) seemed annoyed. Both seemed like they didn’t want to be there on NYE. Our waiter (female) was great! Very high energy and seemed knowledgeable about the menu. It was really loud in the main dining area and hard to talk to my date. The food was good, not great. So sadly I wasn’t very impressed and probably won’t return.

Enjoyed a drink & flatbread at the bar while waiting for friends. Reservation seating was right on time even tho it was New Year’s Eve. Server was terrific. Food delicious, as always. Wish you hadn’t changed the recipe for the pesto ricotta chicken. Although the chicken was cooked perfectly & was moist, it wasn’t as flavorful as the first time I had it last month when the preparation was different. There wasn’t the delicious pesto ricotta sauce in the plate beneath the chicken, just a small amount under the skin. Everyone else loved their meals...Cedar plank salmon, Chilean sea bass & scallops. The string beans were SO delicious! Overall a great evening!

We love the environment of UTC Seasons 52 but on most of our visit we find the wait staff wanting to turn the tables so fast it totally ruins the dining experience. No body want to spend $200 on dinner and be in and out of restaurant in 45 mins. Sorry Seasons 52, you have lost us.

The food was excellent, our server was very nice and I love the fact that they were ok with kids around. However, it was a birthday celebration but they were really busy and didn’t do anything about it.

Will definitely go back again though!:)

We arrived ther day after Christmas at 5:30 pm and we were pleasantly surprised how empty the restaurant and the bar were. We had our choice of seats. We ordered a cocktail and a glass of wine along with a couple appetizers. My husband ordered a ravioli dish and I ordered the short ribs on the appetizer menu but wanted a full order. The ravioli was pretty good, a 4 out of 5, but the short ribs were not edible. I ordered a full order and they only brought the appetizer size. I commented on the order when it arrived and the wait person said he would bring the remainder of my order. After a couple bites, I told the bar tender to cancel the other portion of ribs that I did not receive because they were dry and not edible. Very disappointed with this dish because I was craving the short ribs. When the restaurant is slow I guess the few guests that do come, get what’s left over. The bar tender and wait person were very apologetic and handled the situation fine. I have never had bad food at this restaurant so I will try it again. Happy new year!
