About

Seasons 52, in Santa Monica, serves upscale cuisine crafted with passion and a dedication to seasonal produce in its charming and relaxing restaurant. The lump crab, roasted shrimp and spinach-stuffed mushrooms with parmesan-panko crust and the duck wing lollipops slathered with sweet and spicy Korean gochujang make superb appetizers. Some of Seasons 52's specialty entrées include the honey and herb all-natural roasted half chicken with zesty jus, the wood grilled New York strip with soy garlic marinade and the lobster and fresh mozzarella flatbread with roasted sweet peppers, scallions and lobster sour cream. Cocktails, like the copper mug prairie mule with organic vodka, ginger beer and lime, make a delightful accompaniment.

Seasons 52's Sunday brunch is wildly popular, with dishes like the vegetable frittata with aged cheddar and sriracha hollandaise and the brick oven brioche French toast with whisky-smoked brown sugar pecans being unmissable.

I came here for a going away/friends-gathering. I couldn't have picked a better spot for my last night living in Santa Monica. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. The wine list was very respectable. Thank you Seasons 52 for a phenomenal experience.

Food was delicious from the appetizers to the soup to the main dish. I had the scallops and they were cooked perfectly. Finished with a delightful dessert in a shot glass. Loved everything.

This was our first visit to the restaurant and we loved it so much that we will definitely visit again. The food is great, the service is excellent and the location is wonderful with ocean view.
The whole menu is superb but do leave space for desert.

We had a wonderful, romantic dinner here on a busy Friday evening! My husband and I were in somewhat of a time constraint and everything went smoothly. Our waitress was very attentive and kept things moving along. We couldn't believe we had never been here before. We will definitely be back in the very near future!

This was a place to meet up from OC to Ventura County. We had a gift card, so decided to try it. Would normally stay away from the hectic beach. But, were very happy with the welcoming and bar service while we waited for the others to arrive. Dinner was great. Loved the fresh food choices. Would definitely recommend to others and go again when in the area.

Too bad it's closing. This is a good restaurant in a great location. Varied menu and drinks.
I hear they are closing this location because this franchise wasn't taking in enough capital. I won't be going to the steak place filling this space.

My husband and I had a delicious dinner and the service was wonderful! Use Uber to get there because it is too congested to try and valet the car. The prices are reasonable for such a good restaurant!

I have been to Seasons 52 at other locations and found them to have excellent service and good food. This particular location was the exception. The service was horrible. My son spilled water, and no one came to clean up. We used our napkins and asked for more napkins later, but did not receive any. The food was very delayed, and when it arrived, was very overcooked. The scallops tasted like rubber. The only thing that arrived on time was the check.

This is a lovely venue! I hadn't known it was a chain, but friends from out of town recommended it from previous experience in their travels, and it was great to eat locally sourced, seasonal dishes that fit perfectly. Plating was lovely, and portions are neither too small nor so large as to be intimidating. The flatbreads as supposed to be their claim to fame, and they were lovely. Main dishes were tasty and interesting, and reflected the seaside location. My steak salad could have used another slice, but that's being picky.

Also just the right place to be. Quiet enough for conversation, enough sound to be lively. Consistently good food....love their filet mignon and trout; just had the world's best vegetable soup, an amazing broth with it. It's a chain but the Santa Monica one at least never feels that way and stands on its own as a terrific dinner choice (lunch also, but we are there more often for dinner). Great selection of wines by the glass and bottle, and excellent and inventive cocktails. By far our favorite place in the area. It also has the best trained, most helpful waiters of any LA restaurant we've been to, oh, and have to try the flatbreads.

There's something for everyone here. I like the smaller portions and the focus on healthy fresh food. The little desserts are great and just the right size for a sweet taste. I come here every time I go to Santa Monica.

The steak and blue cheese flatbread never disappoints. The filet was cooked to perfection. The short rib was also very well prepared. And as always the deserts are scrumptious.
