The interesting array of food, and small portions so that you can try more stuff. All the food are fresh and in season and that is good for health.

I've met friends here several times and we enjoy sitting outdoors. It's easily accessible from the parking lot but nice to be part of South Coast Plaza for shopping too! Great variety of food, presented well, and tasty. We usually order flatbread as a starter.

Seasons 52 Restaurant in Costa Mesa at South Coast Plaza.... We have eaten here on two separate occasions for lunch and very much enjoyed the taste of our food. The presentation of the food was attractive and artfully done. The first time we had scallops and some veggies and this last time we had salmon and veggies. Our food was... More

My roommate and I visited Seasons 52 as part of a special Christmas treat for ourselves, including a show at the Segerstrom Center down the street from the restaurant. We were just looking for a light meal to get us through the evening and we were not disappointed. We each ordered a flatbread - she had the shrimp and I... More

Orange County has plenty of undistinguished restaurants with interchangeable entrees and atmosphere. Seasons 52 is something different than the usual. The food is very good. The atmosphere is a bit noisy and busy but not bad. The back room is quieter but a bit dull. My wife and I have dined here several times and plan on returning.

I hosted a group of 30 or so for cocktails and dinner. First, I managed to forget the reservation time and showed up an hour late... not to worry... Our hostess, Erin, fixed everything... She & I were the only ones in earshot that knew anything was awry. All of the servers from CJ, the bartender to the actual wait-staff,... More

We arrived for our 5:30 reservation last night and could see it was very busy so expected to wait. Our name was called but they did not have any menus so asked us to wait. A lady came in and asked for a table and was told it would be 8:00. She motioned her husband over and next thing they... More

This place claims its name from the fact that the menu changes 52 times a year, catering to fresh, local ingredients whenever possible. Nice ambience inside, quite popular, make reservation in advance. Elegant place settings, large wine list, both by glass and bottle. All dishes relatively low calories, even the mini desserts (although this probably leads to patrons ordering more... More

Each dish is under 500 calories. Great desserts. I ordered the pork tenderloin and it was a bit rare for my taste but my dining companion had beautiful scallops and they were very enjoyable.
