“Light and fresh food ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Lunch here with the hubby. All the food is grilled and I guess all under 450 calories. I had the lobster flat bread. The flat bread was more like a cracker. It was very thin but it was good. Hubby had the bison burger with potato wedges.
Decent price and good service. Nice place to go when shopping at the mall. We did some shopping at south coast plaza and stopped in for lunch and then continued to the parking lot.

“Great service, Lovely venue, Good eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

For something different, healthy and good, this is a great place. It was perfect for our pre-theatre lunch. Our waiter, so sorry I forgot the name, was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. I had the sushi which was just terrific. But two at our table had the barbequed chicken salad, and they couldn't eat it fast enough. We also shared a lobster flatbread which was quite tasty. The décor is very inviting and calming, too. I like this place a lot!

“Light, healthy options perfect before theatre or concert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Service was impeccable. Knowledgeable staff that stopped by table often. Interesting menu with lots of small plates and flatbreads. Changes with season. Warm beet salad with goat cheese was excellent. Added a flatbread with lobster. Light enough yet full of flavor. The desserts come out in large shot glasses the next one more tempting than the last. You can't resist but leave feeling like you didn't blow it (unless you order all 10 which the table of 4 next to us did!!) . If you want so etching more substantial they had good options. We peeked into bar on way out. Nice piano bar with live musician. Looked lively for a mall restaurant! Of course this is in South Coast Plaza.

“Great Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Seasons 52 serves just enough. The food is properly proportioned so that one does not leave feeling stuffed, but satisfied. The food is absolutely delicious - quite flavorful. My husband, who loves every type of fish, swears that Season 52 has the best salmon that he has ever tasted. I enjoy the flatbread hors d'oeuvres; the bread part is light and crispy while the toppings include a nice blend of flavors. Another favorite is the braised beef red mole tacos = incredible, but still, just enough (3 stuffed tacos). The wine list, too, is just enough; wines are suggested to pair with some of the meals. Then the desserts - YUM! - but still just a perfect amount. Besides the wonderful food, the service is quite attentive yet not bothersome. We thoroughly enjoy this restaurant with its warm, cozy atmosphere.

“A welcome addition to the food scene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Quiet, fairly sophisticated environment. Great food & service with controlled calorie content. Desserts are intentionally small & loaded with flavor--just what you want when you have a hankering for something sweet and a waistline to consider. Ideal for a business lunch. I went to the one in Miami in '13 and it was also great.
