Steakhouse
Seasons 52 is a comfortable and stylish fresh grill and wine bar offering a refreshingly balanced approach to dining 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, and the Wine Bar pours 52 world-class wines by glass and signature cocktails. Lunch and dinner daily, happy hour Mondays – Friday.

    July 28, 2022, we were celebrating BRAD‘s birthday and we’re disappointed with the service we received. This was the first time we’ve been back since the pandemic but prior to the pandemic we always felt like we were really treated as VIPs with friendly service, a champagne toast, birthday card, picture and free dessert for the 4 of us. I confirmed your policy for birthdays had not changed when I first arrived but was concerned with the outside table we were given as it was in the sun. I asked to be moved knowing none of my friends would be OK with the sun & the girl seating me move me to another table in the sun said “well, let me know if you need to change when your friends arrive”. So when they arrived I asked for a shade table & were finally moved. Please know there were at least 70% of your tables EMPTY! All my friends commented on how unfriendly the waiters were & how no one was smiling or friendly. There were long laps between anyone talking to us or waiting on us. We did enjoy our food when it was delivered but upset when the waitress charged us for the dessert after she confirmed it was still part of your birthday policy. Please note: she could have said “yes, for an extra charge I can give you all dessert “ when we said “we all can have dessert?” And the last thing that left a bad taste in our mouths: one of my friends overheard our server bitterly complaining to another server & who she thought was the manager! All she heard was the ending of their conversation: “and then they had the NERVE to ask for the charge for desserts be removed!” If you have a way to review my previous reviews, you would know they have all been glowing with a generous tip when paid. Perhaps the difference is we were “regulars” before the pandemic & none of these people know us … What really disappointed me was there were so few people in the restaurant & we were treated like our requests were hurting your other customers. We were merely asking for a shaded table.

    Seasons 52 is one of my favorite restaurants & we’ve dined here many times throughout the years. We usually come to seasons 52 for our birthday celebration (my friend and I share the same birthday). This year the food was just okay, usually the food is fantastic. The salmon was a little overcooked & there were too many grains and not enough other ingredients. And the shrimp and grits didn’t taste like a traditional shrimp and grits. Could have used more grits. The server wasn’t the best in terms of being attentive.

    Our meal was delicious and individualized. Two us had the crab cake sandwich but differently as one had the brioche bun the other without. The crab cake was moist and flavorful, along with a mustard seed dressing. The final entree was the mahi mahi tacos which were a tasty threesome of fish. The desserts were the shot glass size, and in a perfect world might have had less crumbs at the bottom of the key lime pie, pecan pie, and carmel nut item. We enjoyed raspberry lemonade as well. As always a scrumptious lunch at a favorite spot!

    Amanda was our server and she is amazing! Welcoming, well versed on all bar items and made perfect suggestion for summer fresh cocktail. We started with seasonal bacon & corn flatbread…yummy! Other apps= scallops, meatballs and truffle risottos -all were cooked to perfection. Entrees: wild caught salmon, lamb chops (juicy not dry), ahi salad and rotisserie chicken. Then topped off the night with mini desserts, the perfect size.
