OUR PATIO IS OPEN. CURBSIDE PICKUP ALSO AVAILABLE. We are pleased to open our doors, but delighted to still offer takeout. See the menu at Seasons52.com/menu-listing/takeout or call (858) 450-1252 to place an order.

Seasons 52 is a comfortable and stylish fresh grill and wine bar offering a refreshingly balanced approach to food and wine where guests are free to enjoy, knowing any choice they make is one they'll feel good about. The menu changes with the season to feature ingredients at their peak, from whole produce that arrives and is kept 100% fresh, never frozen, to carefully sourced meats and pristine seafood. Entrées are oak-fire grilled or brick oven-roasted, without a fryer in sight, to be flavorful and naturally lighter. The Wine Bar pours world-class wines by the glass and signature cocktails.

Today, the Risotto that comes with Scallop was not fresh. It tastes spoiled. Leftovers from yesterday? Not good. I ordered the same dish twice before, and they were delicious.

We’ve had a Black Friday tradition for years now of lunch after shopping here (2020 the exception). This was our first disappointing dining experience here and we’ve been dozens of times over the years. There was hardly a mushroom in our stuffed mushrooms. The food was warm at best. Our server apologized for the bartender making a seasonal cocktail with orange juice instead of the apple juice it required, which they apparently ran out of. They should have just told us. We just expected more from a $300+ lunch when it’s not very busy. May very well be the end of our tradition. 😢

My fiance and I chose Seasons 52 for our Thanksgiving dinner because we have been to the restaurant numerous times and the food, service, and ambiance have always been excellent. Unfortunately, that was not quite the case this time. The food was good, but the service was slow and unprofessional, in addition, our table was in a very poor location that was very uncomfortable. We were seated outside, which was expected, but the table was by the patio exit, that had to stay open, and the table was a high top, placing us directly at the wind level and it was pretty chilly that evening. Our server said we could be reseated, but instead, our table was moved about a foot further away from the exit, and closer to the heat lamp that was provided to the table behind us. Then, on a final note, our bill was not properly calculated and we were almost overcharged. Our server did correct the bill, but by then, our visit was already tainted.

If this had been our first time at Seasons 52, we probably wouldn't go back, but since we know that the restaurant is usually so much better than this experience, we will be return customers.

The large exterior terrace has a welcoming ambiance and offers a variety of 4-top and larger tables offering flexibility for small and large groups. We unfortunately were seated at a 4-top where seating was not originally intended to be located. The table was tightly squeezed between building, canopy columns, service access door/aisle and the server station. There was no ambiance or view. As we had a reservation for the exterior terrace, we kindly asked the hostess to relocate us to one of a half dozen open 4-tops with better ambiance and were rudely told that they were balancing tables and wait staff. Within a half hour all the exterior tables were seated.

Salmon was tasty, potatoes were good, but green beans were near ambient temperature and stringy and butternut squash soup was just OK.

Wine (a French Sauvignon Blanc) was mediocre -- not up to previous S.B. from South Africa.

Service was very good.

Seasons 52 is usually reliably good for 4 stars or more - I'll chalk up this 3 star rating to Thanksgiving Day pressures.

Service was great.
Prices were reasonable.
Limited menu. Mainly seafood.
Wish they had more options for non seafood diners.

Soup was cold twice, asked for chamomile tea and they brought African something or other, waiter started off fantastic but clearly became frustrated and short when the soup was sent back twice, beginning to justify that he had it microwaved so it should've been hot. It wasn't. Other than that it was a lovely anniversary...

I write a number of reviews on Seasons 52, where I frequently eat lunch or dinner. Both are outstanding! The lunch offers a great value with a special luncheon menu where I often have a half-flatbread and soup -- always delicious. This time I welcomed back to San Diego a dear friend and we share the lobster flatbread, the cedar-planked salmon and a yummy dessert, along with a nice bottle of wine. It just just excellent! And I always get my favorite table, which makes it even more special.

We had a reservation via Open Table, and it was quite crowded at the reception desk when we got there. We waited our turn and the receptionist walked us to and It was totally unacceptable. Please don’t there’s several different dining areas that you can eat at, and the one that “back“ of the restaurantIs is my least favorite
one. Long story short we ended up eating in a small booth in the bar. We had a wonderful waitress who was very friendly and outgoing. Helped us with the menu and paced the mail perfectly.

We started with the mushroom flatbread that was excellent. The bread wasn’t heavy at all, more like a cracker, and there were plenty of mushrooms. We next had the yellow big salad wish I had a scale of 1 to 10 I would give a sex, but it was delicious and we ate it willingly. Finally my wife had the scallops and I had the filet mignon. Both items were prepared with a lot of care.

You can’t go to this restaurant without having one of their small desserts. It’s perfect with coffee and a great topper to a wonderful meal. Besides the wrangling over seating, We had an excellent dining experience. Next time when I make the open table reservation I will note I wanna booth in the bar..

I have eaten here many times. This time we were seated right next to the bar, but with an open wall that you could hear everything the hostess was saying. It was like being in confession, she was so close…so I will make sure never to sit there again.

The food was great as always.

As always, wonderful food that's consistently delicious. Our server was very nice and very attentive...made our anniversary dinner even better!

Thank you for bringing back the current presentation of the chilean seabass. The wild rice is very good, but we'd love to have the forbidden rice with it again.

The trout was perfect, my husband's favorite. Our friends had the pork chop and filet and lobster tail and loved their meals.

PLEASE bring back the macchiato dessert.

We love Seasons 52 and will be back soon!

We always look forward to an evening at Seasons. It was a perfect night to be outside. Food was delicious, service nice. Only distraction was the loud music that they were not able to turn down. Also, wine prices seem to be escalated.

Food was very good. The Butternut Squash soup was very good and the trout was excellent. Our waiter, a young man named Niles, needs more experience but is doing well and trying very hard. He is well mannered, helpful, and pleasant.

The quality of the food wasn't up to its usual standards. The beans were overcooked, and the steak in the steak salad undercooked and not very good. Hopefully it was only a fluke, as we like the restaurant.
