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.

    A bit chaotic on arrival with the reservation desk, but once seated, it was a seamless evening. Our server: Victoria was attentive and even gave us a complimentary champagne toast. She happened to hear one if our party relating a story of her her book was just published. Amazing service!

    The staff is clearly well managed and trained, as one would expect at an establishment of this caliber. Our server, Tre, possessed an excellent knowledge of the menu and social grace when interacting with the table (party of 8, ranging in age from 8 to 91). He was certainly an integral part of the experience. The menu satisfied meat-eaters and pescatarians alike. My husband's steak was perfectly cooked medium well (I can't tell you how many times that's not the case); my mother ordered trout-- a first-- and loved it. The stuffed mushroom appetizer, served in an escargot dish, remained hot and delicious; and the blistered tomatoes on the flatbread burst with freshness. Shrimp n' grits, meatballs, lobster tail, scallops, mac n' cheese, and assorted dessert bites also pleased young and old alike. I appreciate that the menu included less common red wine, such as Sangiovese, which in my experience is a hallmark of a fine restaurant, and that the meals are all portioned and designed to be 595 calories or below. The prices are appropriate to the quality and do not seem inflated at all. Everyone at our Father's Day dinner is looking forward to their next meal at Season's 52.

    Today we celebrated FathersDay and having not been to Seasons 52 in a while, we had a very nice time. The food was very good and the service was excellent. I had the salmon on a cedar plank with roasted potatoes and green beans which I’ve had in the past and it’s one of my favorites. My husband had the pork chop which he also enjoyed but would have liked some vegetables with it. The pork chop came with a slightly sweet pickled red cabbage.

    We made a reservation for this place for a Birthday celebration and they seated us on the second booth on the right side as you walk in towards the bar, and the place was clean but the booth was so uncomfortable. It’s like one of the spring on the booth is missing. We told the waiter and he went to check to see if there was any availability and he said the only available is outside. So we decided to stay. I got Salmon special and it was amazing, delicious. Hubby got an Ahi Crunch Salad and he said it was amazing. Our friend got the Salmon Special and the Sea Bass. Our food was amazing. We had 3 of the 4 in our party celebrating Birthdays in June. I guess they don’t have any special for Birthdays or any occasion, because they didn’t even do anything for us, kind of bummed, so went ahead and order our own desserts. Our waiter was okay, he wasn’t friendly, but glad the company was great and the food was amazing.

    We made a reservation. Since our arrival, the hostess, the manager and our server gave us excellent service. For the food, my Honey lavender Sangria was yummy. We love your crackers; they go well with the hummus. Our main dishes were a little bland and needed a better presentation. For my Wood-grilled tenderloin salad, I would have liked thinner slices of the tenderloin like the pictures on your website. It was hard to cut the meat inside a round bowl. We liked the ambiance; my friend and I have not seen each other for a long time, we felt comfortable chatting for hours without feeling pressured. At the end of dinner, we visited the restrooms; we wished they were neater.

    We always enjoy going to Seasons 52. It was already very crowded when we got there, but we were seated right at our reservation time. The server was friendly, polite and attentive. I love their Grilled Salmon Salad and I ordered it again tonight. The noise level seem to be a little higher than I thought it would be but it was a Saturday evening. The restaurant was packed. Seasons 52 is one of the few restaurants we feel that we always get what we expect, the service, the food, and very satisfactory dining experience.

    Noise was an issue for us. The piped music seemed particularly loud. Someone in our group has sound sensitivity. The hostess and manager claimed they could not lower the volume. We have never had trouble with a restaurant turning down the volume a little. There really was no place in the restaurant where you could escape it though we found a moderately better spot. We would have left but we were with a group, who offered to leave but we did not want to uproot everyone. One of our friends who is a regular said she never heard the music at this volume and likewise was shocked they could not fix it. The rest of the review doesn't matter since we can't go back and don't appreciate their unwillingness or inability to make a simple accommodation a guest with a medical issue.

    As always, Seasons 52 does not disappoint me. My favorite - any location - go to restaurant. You can ALWAYS depend on the food to be delicious, fresh, and prepared perfectly. Just had the lamb loin with mashed sweet potatoes and grilled asparagus. It was a taste delight. I LOVE risotto. They had mushroom truffle risotto on the menu so we shared that. It was creamy, so tasty in every way and enough for two of us. That dish alone was worth going back again and again. I just wish that there were more locations. The closest one to my home is about 80 miles away. I’ve been to the Denver, Scottsdale, Costa Mesa and La Jolla locations. Consistency across all locations. Try this restaurant. Nice decor in all locations.
