Seasons 52 - Chestnut Hill Ratings and Reviews

Really surprised by this experience - I have been several times to the Burlington location - this was my first to chestnut hill. I pad $30 for a very overlooked piece of what I guess to be 2-3 ounces salmon. Another in our party had the lobster entree and I was not aware that lobster tails came so small. Almost every dish left something to be desired.
Although the restaurant was not crowded ...
Although the restaurant was not crowded the night I was there, it had a chain restaurant feel because things were so rushed. We actually got our main course before finishing our appetizer. It was just placed there without apology. When we said that this is not good, finally our own waitress came by to apologize as did the maître d'. You did get the sense that this was just pro forma on both their parts, since added to the apology was the simple excuse, "our kitchen got a little ahead of itself." I would have said a lot ahead actually! The service was not attentive. As for the food, my guest enjoyed the salmon dish, but my dish of shrimp with cheddar grits was really a failure. The sauce on the shrimp was not at all in balance with the grits and smothered its flavor. Plus the sauce was none to good. As for the grilled artichoke, its sauce too was all wrong for the delicate flavor of the artichoke, plus it was a bit undercooked.

Food was good, but a bit pricey for what we received. Beef short ribs, the 2 combined were maybe 5 oz, cooked, but kinda fatty. Tasted good, but on a smear of grits and with 2 baby carrots for $28.00 - it was good, but overpriced for what was received.
Waitress on a quiet night, too pushy - tried to rush us thru and out when we clearly stated we were in no hurry. That was disconcerting. I liked it, didn't love it, but the prices for what you get are too high. Nice restaurant, but value for $$ spent is not there. I much prefer BRIO in the same mall for a better price point.

While we were surprised to get in on short notice, it was a summer Sunday evening. Every course was delicious, from the summer corn soup to the main course (wild salmon for me, scallops for my wife) to the signature desserts. I appreciate the way the menu follows the seasons. Not too heavy, not too light; not overly spiced, just flavorful. Our server was pleasant and efficient. While I consider Seasons 52's pricing to be a bit high, it is hard to complain.

The food was excellent. Very fresh and on the healthier side using seasonal ingredients. Our server seemed inexperienced which bothered my husband because she wasn't able to answer a lot of his questions. Decor seemed a little dated even though I know it's a newer place. It was very busy though which is a testament of how good the food is.

Have been here before where the experience was ok - not good, not bad, just average. This time was no beuno. After we put our order in, our food did not come for another 35/40 minutes, and even then it took another 10 minutes for one of the dishes to come out. Under normal circumstances I do not blame the server for slow food. However, we were checked on only once, about 5 minutes before our food finally came. It was towards the end of the night too so the hanger was real. We not we're also not given nor offered bread/crackers/healthy thing while we were waiting. When our food did come, the waiter hardly apologized, and whatever apology he did give did not seem genuine. Even at the end of the meal, before our food was taken away we asked for the check. Yet we still waited another 20 minutes.

The food is always terrific...creative without being too fussy and pretentious. I love the fact that the menu changes seasonally, but a few reliably delicious staples remain (e.g. flatbreads, shrimp & grits). It would be helpful to have a few more rose choices on the menu, and to be sure that all wait staff is pretty knowledgeable about the wines. I'm not expecting sommeliers, but just a bit more "conversant" about the choice. But this is not a huge deal; love this restaurant!

First time at this restaurant. Liked it dig wine list by the glass and that server brought bottle to table and gave you a taste before pouring a full glass. Went because they advertised Copper River Salmon. When I mentioned it to server, she did not seem to know what I was talking about and referred to menu that said "wild Alaskan salmon" Yes, Copper river is in Alaska, but it is a special run of salmon for a short period of time. We did order the wild salmon and enjoyed it even though it was a little overcooked and dry. Nice plate presentation. Liked other options on menu. risotto was great as was side order of corn. Artichoke appetizer was enormous. Server brought desserts without asking if we were interested - good way to sell, but would like to be asked.
Servers need a little more training. Ours took dirty plates from another table and left them on an adjacent table. They sat there for over 15 mins. when she asked someone else to take them in kitchen.

Great food and restaurant. The only thing I really don't understand is why they bring main course before you finish appetizer, and it wasn't just once. And they would bring you desert to choose without asking too. So be prospered in case you are on sugar free diet.

We needed a place for 10 on Father's Day and I read the review. It was 100% better than even the reviews. They sat us at a lovely round table where as a family we could talk. The food was amazing. The baked crab cake, duck lolly pops, smoked salmon flat bread amazing. I had the crab salad with vegetables and the quality of the crab and the dressing was simply perfect. The French toast, lobster parpadelle, and salmon were all spectacular. Our waiter was excellent and friendly. I cannot tell you how amazing this meal was then I foundout it was a chain!! Bring one to CT ASAP!! I loved this place.

We had the most wonderful meal at Seasons 52. Everything was served fresh and delicious from seafood to pork tenderloin. The kids loved their meals as well, pasta was perfectly cooked with sauce and cheese on the side and the burger was delicious. We will definitely return.

First time and the food was outstanding!!
We had the 3 Chef Recommendations and all were delicious.
We'll definitely be going back as the food was that good. A little expensive but the quality of the food was out of this world.

Seasons 52 is one of my go-to restaurants. It is a consistently outstanding experience, from the food, to the service, to the ambiance. They clearly thought through every detail when building the restaurant, and the day to day operation. Always a treat coming here!
Excellent Group Room for Events
Group outing for a coworkers going away party. Loved the menu (food and cocktails). Service was excellent and the hostess team was very accommodating to seating friends as they arrive.
I highly recommend this as a restaurant for group gatherings.
