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.

We were treated like special guests from the moment we arrived until our departure. The staff was attentive, service delightful and the food, delicious! The warm wood and stone walls created an elegant, warm atmosphere. I would return for an evening out in addition to future special occasions. Everyone in our party had a wonderful time!

We came to celebrate our Anniversaries. My husband’s brother and his wife and ours.

Our server was excellent. He checked in with us often but only enough that he wasn’t interrupting us.

We each had an entree from the restaurant week menu and they were all very well prepared and so good!

Other than Lecosho's in Seattle, they served the juiciest, most tender, mouth-watering, bone-in pork chop EVER. Sooo delicious! We sat in the open patio for a socially distant meal. As always, I loved the mini-dessert (belgian chocolate smore). Service was exceptional. The pork chop was on the restaurant week menu. Hope it is available as a regular menu item!

What weekend would be complete without stopping at SEASONS 52 especially due restaurant week? My wife and I were lucky enough to get seating in the lounge via OpenTable. What an evening of traffic dining! My wife started with a glass of Pinot noir and I a Rye Manhattan. Martin, our server and bartender, did a terrific job tending to our needs! He was professional, approachable, and friendly! I'm glad to see that all team members were following COVID-19 protocols to the letter. We open with an off the menu seared Ahi starter. My wife up to go with the macaroni and cheese and Caesar salad while I enjoyed the restaurant week pork chop special with asparagus soup. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her Mac & Cheese and Caesar salad. The asparagus soup was delicious and the pork chop succulent. The accompanying green beans and marble potatoes were scrumptious as well. For dessert we enjoyed our mini indulgences and a New Old Fashioned. We will be back!

What traffic afternoon for an early dinner! We used OpenTable to reserve a time and seating. We arrived and were quickly seated in the bar lounge area that we asked for. Casey, the bartender and our server, took great care of us! I opened with a cucumber basil smash and my wife a glass of Vanderpump rose. For a starter my wife and I enjoyed seared Ahi with a teriyaki glaze. For me and my wife ordered a bowl of potato leek soup and I their crabcake sandwich with side salad. I also had a bowl of their asparagus soup as it is part of their summer menu and will be leaving the lineup very soon. Everything came out quick, picture perfect, and delicious! If you happen to be at South Coast Plaza in one place that is truly terrific, stop at SEASONS 52. You won’t be disappointed!

The food was great as usual. I was disappointed that during COVID, that although the tables were socially distanced that people were still seat close while other sections were completely empty. It seemed seating was done to make it easier for wait staff rather than overall safety. I would politely suggest spacing people out and fill in as capacity requires. I shouldn't have anxiety while the patio is mostly empty and someone is seated right next to my table. I almost wanted to ask my dining neighbor to extend an arm to make sure we were two arms length away.

Safety first please.

Food was very tasty and nice presentation! A good place for a special occasion. Overall 4 star instead of 5 was due to: 1. Reservation was at 7 didn’t get seated until 730, however, they have a 15 min grace period if you’re late. And the specialty drinks are a bit pricey and low pours! So order a beer or straight spirit!

My wife and I were very excited to be able to dine in! Very happy to see that all COVID-19 protocols are being used by the staff here. We had a terrific dining experience with Sean and Casey taking superb care of us. I started with an off the menu special of seared ahi and a terrific bottle of Pinot Noir. My wife decided to have their pepperoni flatbread on a gluten-free crust for her main and I the 6 ounce filet with a side of seared scallops. The flat bread was delicious and large, and my fillet was cooked to perfection and scrumptious! For dessert we opted for a chocolate and a pecan pie mini indulgence. Just the right size and delicious! If you’re looking for a great place for a great meal at a reasonable price, SEASONS 52 is the place! Thank you for the great dining experience!

We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. The staff was very prompt and courteous. We were offered the option of a paper menu or to view it on our phone which was nice. Drinks were great and we had the Seabass and Scallops.. both were cooked perfectly. Great dinner on the patio.

Seasons 52 is consistently good year-round. The patio is pointed east - so the setting sun does not produce glare for diners. The patio opens on the Mall Parking Lot, however, so the view is the only minor drawback to your experience. My Cocktail was served with reserve amount in the little metal shaker - so it is like getting two drinks for the price of one. The current Summer-based menu has many great options. And the permanent menu items are always wonderful. Full entrees are a little on the pricey side (but worth it) and they have some smaller items if budget is a issue. The flatbread pizzas are good for sharing or as a small meal for one person.

Food was good but not outstanding. Service was the same; good but not outstanding. Patio seating was comfortable but the view consisted of the parking lot and roadway. Overall a decent place for dinner but not outstanding.
