It was our third anniversary and we had dined there for our other two. Never disappointed with the service or the food there. A very special dining experience and look forward to having our fourth anniversary celebration there next year.

Birthday lunch with friends on a Sunday. They were out of several items on the menu and the server was unwilling to make adjustments/substitutions on other menu items as compensation. Otherwise good was good and we did not feel rushed or hurried.

Season's 52 is a very good place to enjoy a lunch or dinner with friends. The service as well as the surroundings are a plus. The menu offers a great variety of healthy foods. Each seasonal change is a very pleasant surprise and it keeps you coming back for more.

I dined here with my husband. We had planned for a date elsewhere, but that place didn't take reservations and had a 55 minute wait. We made a reservation online for Season 52 and actually arrived 30 min early. We knew we wouldn't be seated instantly, but actually ended up being seated around 715.
I loved that our waiter was very honest. My husband was going to order a different kind of mac and cheese, but the waiter let him know that it hadn't been the biggest hit. Too often, we have had waiters act like everything was delicious, just to be disappointed, so this was a welcome change.
I like that the menu changes throughout the year. The only downside to that is that you'll run the risk of loving something and not being able to get it again.
I had the filet, and it was cooked perfectly. The Yukon mashed potatoes were delicious. I also enjoyed the broccoli. My husband had a lamb shank, but was less impressed. It was seasoned and cooked perfectly on one side, but the other left a lot to be desired. His vegetables were undercooked and hard. Portions are a tad small for the prices.
The desserts here are a bit ... overpriced. There is no desert menu, so they bring out 7 different desserts on a tray. They come in tall shot classes and are $3. They don't tell you the price, and in fact, our waiter said, "and I will bring out the dessert tray because that is how we end every meal". My husband thought they were complimentary, based on that statement. I explained otherwise, due to dining here previously and knowing. Now, not sure if they arrange the desserts themselves, but I heard three separate waiters say, "I will start in the middle, with my personal favourite", when presenting the desserts.
I would dine again, though. Overall, the experience was lovely for an impromptu date night.

Had the braised pork and was very pleased along with the regular menu scallops both well prepared with nice sides. Also the wine selection was all over the place and no fault but interesting. Whiskey selection was very impressive. Now I need a cigar.

Let me start by saying that the service was excellent. Our server, Crystal, was attentive without being annoying. Our food arrived quickly. Refills were timely. Ambiance was good... not too noisy, which is important to me.
We ordered fondue, lamb shank, short rib and pork tenderloin, and a side of truffle macaroni and cheese.
The artisan cheese fondue was excellent. Sadly, that was the best dish of the night.
All of the meats were cooked to the desired level, but each person in our party said that they all lacked flavor. They were just okay, nothing special.
Carrots were fine. The grits were actually nice. Green bean mix tasted fine.
The mac and cheese was, by far, the biggest disappointment. Pasta, bread crumbs and mushrooms, but little spice and zero Gruyere.
We even found some aluminum foil in one of the vegetable mixes. This wasn't a big deal to me, but still...
Our server was responsive to the issues. We didn't ask, but management offered to replace the meal. When we said it was okay, they removed that meal from the bill and offered us a heartfelt apology.
In summary: Great people, great service, great atmosphere, disappointing food.
We will probably try them again to give a second chance. Maybe they just had a rough night.

Requested to sit in bar area after previous great experience with bartender as waiter. Not this time- our waiter was training so it felt like service was slow. Loved all the food- would have given 5 stars but the kale soup was not up to Seasons standards. Thought the short rib flat bread was a little tasteless as well. Still a favorite lunch spot

My daughter were having a very rare lunch out. We both like Seasons 52. Our waiter, Ashish, made our occasion exceptional! He made wine recommendations for each course and never let our water glasses get empty. The food and ambiance complimented our outing as well.

A very good business lunch. I had ordered the flat iron steak salad and was served the flat iron steak entree. It was delicious, was just trying to watch the calories. Servers offered to correct, but I kept the entree served.

Seasons 52 did not disappoint! This was our second Christmas Eve dinner out option. Our server was friendly, prompt, and helpful. The food was delicious and really quite outstanding. We were not rushed. We recommend Seasons 52 whenever anyone has special company or an occasion that needs to be extraordinary.

I do know why we keep going back. Use to dine at Perimeter in Atlanta quite often and never had a bad experience with either food or service. Now in Birmingham it started off fine but now almost every visit recently had had subpar food and service is lacking.

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.
