“Dissappointing”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

First time at any Seasons 52. The apps were good - but nothing truly inspired. 3 of us ordered grilled shrimp with chorizo risotto for entrees. The shrimp were over-cooked, the risotto was dry and overcooked so that the rice grains split open and chorizo was boring. One of the 3 plates took an additional 10 to 15 minutes to arrive. One of the assistant managers told us when the shrimp came off the grill, they didn't meet the standards and they recook the dish - that portions wasn't different than the others. We were not told this when the other entrees came and it just seemed like a convenient excuse. Otherwise the server was friendly and professional.

I would go back, but with much lower expectations and order items that are harder to get wrong.

“Great Food but You'll Not be Full”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Great food, great atmosphere, but this is the place of the teeny portions (which is not bad, exactly). A bit pricey. Make sure you're not expecting "American sized" portions and you'll love it.

“Consistently Goooooooooooooood”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Time and time again - you want a great meal and excellent service - This is IT !!!!!. Only complain is the noise. If this is a business meeting, bring a megaphone or wait till you leave. Something about the acoustics and then there is a piano player....ouch. Otherwise, despite the 450 calorie promise, I have never left hungry. I recommend EVERYTHING on the menu, you will not be disappointed.

“Still baffled by the good reviews”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Dined at Seasons 52 this week for dinner with three colleagues based on the good reviews we heard from others and was sadly disappointed. Unfortunately, we were unaware of the restaurant's concept of low-caloric meals, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but our meals were all bland and we left hungry. If you like bread and butter with your meal, this is not the place for you. We did enjoy the stuffed mushroom appetizer, but that was the extent of our enjoyment. Our waiter was not very friendly at all, but I will refrain from providing his name, so as not to get him in trouble. We left after our meal hungry and very disappointed and actually went to another restaurant for dessert so as to have some feeling of being full after eating!
