Seasons 52 - Birmingham Ratings and Reviews

What a wonderful experience! We were a party of 11 celebrating two birthdays at Seasons 52. We have been many places with our group over the years and often find it difficult to get bills split, find something everyone wants, or have had issues with food or service. But Seasons 52 made our simple Birthday get together a special experience. We were seated as soon as we arrived at a wonderful table in the middle of the restaurant and the staff immediately began to serve us. The birthday girls were treated with a card and dessert at the end. Our meal started with a small glass of champagne for each of us then we were treated to a spoonful of a delicious appetizer. It was so fresh and flavorful We all loved it.
Each of us ordered different dishes and all of us were happy with our food. That just rarely happens. All of the food was so fresh and well prepared. And served in a unique way that made it a treat and not just being served a plate of food.
Our waiter was excellent. He was available and on top of everything but not overbearing or interruptive. Our bills were all separated perfectly as well. He had a very pleasant personality and didn't draw attention to himself but truly served us.
I've been to Seasons 52 previously and felt it was expensive for the size servings but I did not feel that way at all at our dinner. The food was a great portion for the price. Of course I love desserts and would love to have three times the portion:)
We will definitely return to Seasons 52 for more birthday celebrations as well as lunch or dinner with friends or family.

Since our dishwasher was malfunctioning, the power went off 3x on Thanksgiving Day and we spent the morning working in The Community Kitchen to prepare food for the homeless, it was a great year to eat out for the holiday. It was a near perfect dining experience at Seasons 52 and we recommend the restaurant.

My wife and I were in town for Thanksgiving for the first time in about 10 years. We saw online that Season's 52 offered a full Thanksgiving meal. It was fantastic!!! I would highly recommend if you do not want to cook!

We had a reservation for of party of 11 for Thanksgiving. The room was great the food delicious. However, it appeared as though they may not have been prepared for the large crowds. The service was extremely slow...
We would eat there again but probably not on a busy holiday...

Always wonderful dining experience. I decided to try their paella, offered as a seasonal special. Although very good, with lots of wonderful seafood including lobster, it did not have that rich, authentic paella flavoring, perhaps lacking enough saffron and authentic baking technique. I still love their trout, which I can return to next visit.
My wife had the white wine flight, which is always a lovely option. Keep up the good work!

Wasn't that impressed with Seasons 52. Started out with a couple of appetizers. Crab stuffed mushrooms, which had minimal crab, and minimal flavor. Ahi tuna appetizer was the best thing that we ordered, although it was equal part avocado and Ahi tuna. For a main course, I had the quail. It was 3 mini quails in a sauce that had next to no flavor. The quail tasted ok, but a good sauce would of enhanced the dish greatly. I did like the waiters style, in that when asking for a recommendation, he suggested the most expensive thing on the menu. Overall, the food was adequate. Nothing exciting that would make me want to go back. I've had far worse meals, but at the same time, I've had far better ones too. Service was decent.

We're always pleased with Seasons 52 but this evening was particularly good. It started with our order of lobster flatbread. One of the slices had slid off the serving board, so they went ahead and brought that flatbread to the table - and a few minutes later brought another complimentary one. Our server was very knowledgeable and professional; she made sure my order for the lamb shank got placed before a nearby large party took all the remaining servings. We never felt rushed and the food was worth lingering over. A lovely evening.

Our waitress was fabulous. She referred to us by name. She had suggestions and was very knowledgeable about menu items, wine, etc. She brought out a sample appetizer from the chef and was quick to point out that it contained crab, which our daughter has an allergy to. GREAT INFORMATION! I was also pleased as to how many items on the menu would be appropriate for someone with a vegetarian diet preference. We are looking forward to bringing our guests to a party we are hosting there in May for our daughter's college graduation.

Excellent dinner, a little slow getting seated, there seemed to be some communication issues, it was loud. When we were seated, it was in the back room and it was quiet and perfect for conversation. Excellent service and food. We will return.

My sisters and I had a wonderful time. The food was phenomenal and our waitress Jennifer was delightful. She has a wonderful sense of humor. The wine was delicious. The boneless short rib, shrimp and grits and the Asian salmon salad were perfectly prepared. We also loved the flatbread. We will certainly comebback

The hostess and waiter were very friendly and attentive. However, it took 3 attempts to get the correct flatbread. The atmosphere is comfortable and fun and the wine selection is excellent. The mushroom bisque was tasty but tepid. The rainbow trout was average and was served while the appetizer was still in progress. The coffee was awful and not of the quality one would expect of fine restaurant.

Had been here before and liked it. This time my flatbread was served barely warm; it had clearly been sitting for a while after coming out of the oven. My friends said their meals (salmon and lobster pasta) were "not bad" but didn't rave.

The overall experience was good - the atmosphere is excellent. Wait staff were great. The price for the food was a bit on the expensive side, considering the portions are small to keep the calories low, which is the theme here along with the seasonal offerings. My dish was the swordfish and I expected it to be a bit spicy when it was actually quite bland. I told my wife it was similar to fish soup with the tomato base, without the zing I would expect. Over all a nice dining experience, but pricey.

I enjoyed my experience more for the fact that I did not feel as if I were sitting in the middle of a crowded shopping area. We ordered the deviled eggs for an appetizer, expecting them to be out of this world, and they tasted old and refrigerated, not fresh in any way. We were pleased to have tuna bites given to us. The tuna itself was great but the balsamic soup they were sitting in was overpowering. I had a filet that could have been cut better but overall was fine, especially with the potatoes and mushrooms. Overall, I expected better, but would go back.

Our server Julia made us feel at home and very special. Everyone's entree was delicious. They were also able to accommodate our gluten free daughter. The only downer was the specialty cocktail I ordered.....a basil mojito-type drink from the menu. I am accustomed to drinks like this, but this one was flat and tasteless. Otherwise, the shrimp & grits were delicious. My son devoured his Cornish hens. We will definitely go back!

After reading reviews, was a bit worried. However, NOT TO WORRY!!! This place was incredible!! The service at the bar was wonderful!! Thank you Keith!! The food was outstanding!!! The service, oh my goodness!! Ashish was a great server!! Attentive but not overly. Very friendly, showed us the new things we had not seen, went OUT OF HIS WAY to make sure we had a special evening!!

I am not typically a chain restaurant person, but we have been to Seasons 52 in Birmingham three separate times, and all three were great experiences. The food quality is excellent, and the service is always excellent. We typically eat grain-free, and there are plenty of options. The atmosphere is perfect for dates, but I have actually had my small kids there for lunch, and it was fine.
