“Some Disappointments 3rd time around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

This was our third visit to Seasons 52. It is still our favourite Orlando restaurant although it was disappointing on this occasion, as other guests have commented, to be kept waiting at least half an hour beyond our requested booking time. Also on this particular visit we were seated alongside the bar which is extremely noisy whilst the live entertainer was performing.

The food as always was excellent but in future we shall be more specific in our request for our table placement and hopefully they will have sorted out the disappointing wait times.

“Very fresh, seasonal menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Very good food. They change their menu every season and have daily specials based on locally sourced organic food. It is all fresh for sure. The service is also very courteous and welcoming.

“Excellent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Reserved seats at the restaurant for 6 via open table. Forgot that they had a nice water view so did not get a seat on the patio. The round booth was a bit tight but we managed to slide around. The seasonal food selection was very good. We had 2 flat breads. They were tasty but nothing special. The appetizers were also good with a selection that made you want to have several. The wine we selected was suggested by the server. It left a great deal to be desired. Can't blame him, it just never opened up enough to be enjoyable. I had the seasonal menu spring rolls as my appetizer. Really can't recommend them since I found they lacked flavor. The dipping sauces were only ok. Others at the table really enjoyed their soup, chili and salad. For the main course, my sea scallops were excellent. Others had lamb chops, tuna and steaks. The steaks were the best they had anywhere. The desserts are famous. I believe that the shot glass desserts were invented by Seasons 52. Everyone had a couple and all were just luscious. I always enjoys going to a Seasons 52. They serve consistently very good food in a pleasant environment. I recommend reservations.

“An enjoyable lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

I have not been to Seasons for a while as I like bread and love butter and the last time I went the menu had not changed for a while and the vegetarian options were not very inspiring or enjoyable. So when my friend from Downtown wanted to meet for Lunch there today for a change I was not really looking forward to it. Well! what a difference we had a great Server called Shawn who was very efficient and attentive, there were lots of good items on the menu for myself and my non-veggie friend. The avocado and tomato salad was great and the little desserts!!! How did I chose just one? We sat in on the deck area which is now enclosed. Will definitely return.

“Quite disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We had booked a table for 8.30, but weren't seated until nearly 9. We understood that it had probably been a very busy day, given that it was Mothers Day, but the service was incredibly slow and lacklustre. our server was perfectly pleasant, gut we understood that we had outstayed or welcome (only 10.30) when the floors were being swept around us and we weren't even offered dessert!

Very disappointing, especially as it was our friends' last night on vacation and we had hyped the restaurant up. We will not be coming back.
