Having been to the "sister" restaurant to Seasons 52 (Capital Grille) and having a less that pleasant experience, I was a little skeptical about our visit to Seasons 52. WOW! What a difference. We were with a relatively large group and our server (Paige) did a wonderful job of explaining the menu, the restaurant concept, accommodating special requests and ,keeping everything moving. I had the cedar planked salmon which was excellent. Others in the group said their meals were very good as well. We all agreed we'll be back. I should mention that we were seated in a room in the back of the restaurant. As we left and walked into the main part of the dining room, it was much more noisy.

We had a marvelous experience as we celebrated a family birthday. The wine selections were great & the recommended Bordeaux was excellent. All of the salads were exquisite (warm beet, arugula were tops). I loved the venison and other enjoyed the salmon, steak, scallops & flatbread. Will be back.

It's not easy to find a restaurant ready to take a New Year's Eve reservation for a group. We had not problem booking; then were given a separate, private rom & excellent wait staff. The portions were presented nicely & no one felt uncomfortable at the end of the meal. We were never rushed & the pace between drinks, appetizers, entrees, & desserts, was appreciated !
There are wide choices for everyone's preferences in food -- from flatbreads to salads to meat. We will return !

This is a chain restaurant but you would probably not know it unless someone told you. The menu is unique in that (a) it changes seasonally and every week (thus, the name) and (b) everything is under 450 calories (or thereabouts). Proof positive that you can eat well and not blow your diet. There's a very extensive wine list and a charming bar area. And if you go with enough people, or are hungry enough yourself and don't care about blowing your diet, try the dessert sampler -- all mini-desserts and very tempting! There's a charming bar area, too with a piano that rotates to entertain both ends of the bar.

Our first visit to a Seasons 52 restaurant was an all-around enjoyable experience. The ambiance of the space is fantastic, the bar is great, sitting at a table in the bar itself the piano music from the bar was just the right level and the food was - well - mixed. With everything under 450 calories you have to know that the portions are going to be small which is ok if the quality and taste are superb. The wife had the Salmon which she thought was "pretty good" but it really needed a better side selection to accompany. I had the pork tenderloin (one of their heartier entrees I was told) which was delicious, cooked just right but the Polenta on the side was lumpy, cold and not cooked thru. The small Greek salad I got to go with it was only "ok". I've had better for less. With 3 in our party, our entrees did not come out together which I believe to be unforgivable for an upscale experience. The alcohol is expensive and the beer selection very limited with nothing unique and nothing at all on tap which is very odd given the microbrew wave sweeping the dining world. All in all a pretty nice place for a night out but at these price points the food needs to be taken up a notch.
