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 52 world-class wines by the glass and signature cocktails. Lunch and dinner daily, happy hour Monday through Friday. More at Seasons52.com.

Loved it tonight! It was a very busy night for them, but they did everything they can to make it a special meal and they did great with such a group of people. Thanks to Megan our server for her patience and nice smile for the entire meal. Even though it was very busy, the food was on point, timely and tasty. So, Thank you. As always, you never disappoint! Until next time

What made the dining experience a 5-star was server Erik. We were celebrating a co-worker leaving to go back to Japan after completing his two-year assignment in the United States. He was a valuable member of the company and we were to sad to see him leave with his pregnant wife.

This is the first time me and Max dined at Season's 52. My boss actually dined at Season's 52 one week earlier with a consultant and enjoyed it so much that he wanted to bring us for the farewell luncheon.

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and quantity of the food. Erik made the experience an enjoyable one and was attentive, personable and pro-active when refilling beverages, hot water and ice water. Thanks Erik for the great meal!!!!

Service was not up to the same quality that we have experienced at this location in the past.

Drinks were forgotten, and at one point the runner held a hot plate and reached it across the table in the face and over the belly of a pregnant woman.

We eat here frequently and are never disappointed. This last visit we ordered lobster tail (quite good) and drawn butter was not offered. I think it should have been.

It’s one of my favorite places. Make sure to sit in one of the booths by the piano. It’s fun listening to the music and the food is delicious.

Great food for a decent price! The wine by the glass seemed a little pricy, but the food cost made up for it. Our server Jerod was awesome! He went above and beyond throughout the meal and made us feel like he was our host for the night. I will definitely be going back:)

We loved it at Seasons 52 being it our first time. Our server Lindsey was excellent. Food was good! Over all I would give it 3.5/4 stars out of 5 because the place is too loud. You got somebody playing piano at the bar area. Then you have music blaring over head going between the pianist and their sound system? Hope they can balance the two to make it a more enjoyable evening. Also lastly, we were celebrating a bday and the they could also do a better job of presenting a dessert/cake than two brown sugar containers with a candle.

We’ve eaten here before and really enjoyed the food. We were a bit disappointed this time. My sea bass tasted bland and the glaze was much too sweet for me. My husband’s steak was cooked to perfection but the seasoning was unusual masking the true meat flavor. We may try it again, maybe wait for a change in menu.

It was a date night with my husband. We sat on the patio. Glad we did because it was too loud inside for us. We looked at the parking lot but it’s ok because you see the hustle and bustle of the South Coast area all the way across Bristol and the Performing Arts centers. The weather outside was perfect. Our server was very friendly and catered to our needs even without asking. The food was excellent!! The food came out pretty quickly. She asked if we were going to the Arts and we said yes. She said she would make sure we got out in plenty of time. Our reservation on Friday night for the performance was at 8pm. Our reservation at Seasons was 6pm. We were not rushed by them or ourselves and we were done in plenty of time. It was a very nice experience. If you eat inside, just be prepared for lots of noise. It’s tight quarters and they had a musician singing and playing in the middle of the bar. I listened to him as I passed by to go use the restroom. He was very good. I would recommend this restaurant.

Service was great, but we had a reservation and at first were seated at the kitchen entrance with views of the sink and computers then we were moved to a table that was shoved in a back corner.

Food was beautifully prepared,as always. Service was attentive. Dining room (inside) was noisy and
energetic- it was a little difficult to hear conversation with my tablemate.

Checked in about 15 minutes before reservations and we're greeted and sat us down in a couple of.minutes. our wait person was attentive this is a price fix meal. It included an appetizer and we chose grilled artichoke. It was very good and the hummus w/vegetables was good. Our entrees were shrimp & grits and Kona crusted sirloin. Everything was delicious!

We dine here very frequently and love it because they have a great selection of appetizers, entrees and mini desserts. This time we were here very early -- before 5 pm and the mall was entirely quiet as was the restaurant. We always order a flatbreat -- the chicken pesto is great and for entrees the scallops and the pork tenderloin. For mini desserts the cannolo and the red velvet. Love that the meals come with veggies without having to pay extra.

The front desk was not welcoming. We decided to move to the bar when sat in what I would call the cafeteria — dining room adjacent. The bar staff was great, but the drinks were just OK. I enjoyed the live piano in the middle of the bar.
