“Good, but wouldn't wait more then 30 minutes!”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Went to lunch here last week. The wait time was 10-15 minutes. which we didn't mind at all. Its pretty new in our area so it's been really busy and we heard wait time is over an hour usually. Once we sat we ordered a martini and a mojito, both not great & $13 each. We had the mahi mahi fish tacos & the beef tacos. Both were very good. Small portion. Its a good restaurant but I wouldn't wait more then 30 minutes for a table.

“Good food, great ambiance, small portions, big prices.”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Seasons 52 has a great concept, but not sure if it fits in in this part of New Jersey.
The ambiance is pleasant with a warm charm. It features a large well stocked bar and a decent wine list.
Here is the kicker. While this establishment offers a limited menu with all meals under 475 calories, it is really only suitable for those who expect a meal under 475 calories.
The food has a nice presentation, but lacks any serious flavor.
The portion sizes are very small, so don't expect a full plate.
But you can expect a full check.
A glass of wine starts around 12.50 a glass, and appetizers are small and pricey.
If the flat breads they offer were any thinner, you could probably read the newspaper through it.
The deserts come in a shot glass, so don't worry there will be room for desert. Actually you could have 2 or 3 and it would be less than half of any normal desert.
The service was poor, the waiter forgot our order and we had to repeat it several times and that caused an extensive wait for our entrees. In fairness, this is a newer restaurant and most servers looked new.
Now for my pet peeve. Cleanliness!!! Seasons 52 was clean and well maintained. The rest rooms were clean and maintained. The tables were clean and silverware were up to par.
In summary, this is a great place for a quick lite bite, or a cocktail and a small appetizer. A cool hang out, with charm and ambiance but again it comes with a price.
It is what it is, but I have a problem leaving a restaurant hungry.

“Not Worth It At All!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We went to Seasons 52 just to check out what the new place was all about. At first everything seemed good; the ambiance and servers were pretty pleasant and providing that the restaurant is brand new, the condition of the dining room was perfect. Now about the food: NO TASTE! We ordered flat bread appetizer which was pretty much a piece of bread with piece of meat on it, no seasoning, no imagination, no taste... The meat and fish main courses were well presented but lacked taste again! For the money they charge, we could have gone to Cheesecake factory next door at least twice and could have been very satisfied with the food! Will never go back because this restaurant was absolutely a waste!

“Very nice experience”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Went with friends for a Sunday early evening dinner. The restaurant has been open for about 2 months. Had a drink at the bar prior to being seated for dinner. Bar staff was very friendly. Restaurant even at 5:00 was well attended, but very well organized. We were not rushed and were seated on time. We wondered about the concept of serving dishes with no more then 450 calories per dish, but they do it very well. Portions were smaller then normal restaurants (that's how they do it), but the food was absolutely outstanding. We even had desert, which we normally do not indulge in, because the portions were small but satisfying. We were full when we left. Our wait staff was very attentive. Service was excellent but a little slow. Not enough to take away from the experience. Atmosphere very nice. The only reason for not giving this an excellent rating was that they ran out of a few menu items , which at that hour, you wouldn't expect to happen. Other then that, the overall experience was excellent. Great place to go with friends as oppossed to a nice romantic dinner alone. We will return.

“Organic, fresh and DELISH”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

There were so many interesting items on the menu that I wanted to try. I started with the pear salad which was amazing and then the chicken skewers which were ok, I liked everything about the dish but the chicken, my husband said it was me :> He has sushi and fish tacos. He loved them both. I tried one of the tacos and it was terrific. I can't wait to go back again and try something else. They were still on the Winter menu, it changes to spring next week.
