Our family tried this place out on my brother's recommendation. I ordered the scallops and ravioli. I thought there would be more ravioli than scallops but it was the other way around. Lots of scallops and 2 ravioli. Those ravioli were some of the best I have ever had. I wish they made an entrée that was just ravioli. The... More

This was my second visit and it was better than I remember. I was with one other person for lunch and we didn't have a reservation. Despite the many open tables, it would have been a 25 minute wait unless we sat in the lounge which was fine. We were waited on promptly. The idea that everything is low cal... More

A bit over-rated in my opinion. I love the concept of it: every entree on the menu is less than 475 calories. The problem is: it tastes like it. and for the price point, I expected something a bit better as I could have made similar dishes with less calories, less sodium, bigger portions and with a better taste to...

Wonderful decor/atmosphere. However the place was full and therefore quite noisy for our group of 6 to converse with the person across the table. The bar and piano bar was beautiful with great music but was also totally full with no place to sit. In my opinion the bar is actually a bit small for this size of restaurant, especially... More

The food and service are excellent. The decor is great. It was a bit crowded during the holidays, but well worth it. The Valet parking is close and convenient, it makes going to the mall acceptable. Upstairs is Capital Grill, also good but too stuffy. Enjoy Seasons 52 often, the menu changes.

This was a great meal! The signature flatbread appetizers-we had the basic Roma tomato one - how they get the tomatos to hold so much flavor. The flat bread is paper thin so you can enjoy the food and not get filled. In fact we had a hearty meal, including the dessert and did not feel full But am I... More

We have dined here many a time and decided to come by on New Year's Eve without a reservation. Arrived at 7 pm, and while the bar was crowded, we knew seats would open up. Sure enough, we found a spot in about 15 minutes and began the fun! Piano Man was in great form...gave us the song list...and we... More

We have dined at Seasons 52 in the past and enjoyed the creative and somewhat tasty menu. My wife and I with another couple ( who were new to the restaurant) made reservations on NYE at 9:30 pm. I requested a table in the bar area so we could be near the piano bar and could hear the entertainment especially... More

My recent meal at Season 52 in Costa Mesa was uninspired. Maybe it was that fact that we were seated outside in exceedingly cold weather for New Year's Eve. Maybe it was the fact that the vegetarian menue was unchanged from that last time I dined at Seasons 52 two years ago. Definitely not worth a return visit when there... More
