Seasons 52 - North Bethesda Ratings and Reviews
I’ll start by saying that I love Seasons 52. But this was not their finest evening. We had reservations for 8:15pm(on the late-ish side for the suburbs) and were left waiting to be seated for about 20 minutes. Our waitress seemed hurried, as if she had lots of tables, but was very very sweet. Our flatbread appetizers were great, but plates should have been distributed more promptly. One member of our party got a smaller plate handed to her because not all the plates were clean.
Our food arrived in waves, not all at the same time. First two of us, then two more. And in fact, one member of our group wasn’t served except his side dish. He was left waiting about 15 minutes after the rest of us were served. A quick apology without explanation (clearly someone forgot to cook his steak) when it was finally delivered. Again, I love Seasons 52. And I’ve never had this experience before. But not their finest night.
We have been here before and it is really a good restaurant. Super busy on Friday and perhaps that impacted things a bit. Had a reservation - early 6:15 pm - and still had to wait awhile. Server was great, did not have the wine I ordered that was listed on the menu and the rack of lamb was only fair at best... much to tough. Still would go back and give it another try sometime in the future. It is close to Strathmore so a good location before attending the theater.
We have eaten at Seasons52 several times in the past. The food and wines are excellent and well prepared. The service is usually very good, but this time it was a bit slow, even though the restaurant was not yet crowded. Regardless, we recommend this restaurant highly and plan to go again in the near future.
A special evening with the love of my life that was textbook perfect from the moment we were seated to the very last bite of our dessert!. Season's 52 is a fine establishment, which consistently delivers. They care about and pay attention to details. As Oprah says "The love is in the details." We enjoyed a quick chat with the manager despite the fact that the restaurant was full. I can't say enough about Lauren our server who explained everything and offered great suggestions. She took care of many other families skillfully and kept her expertly trained eye on all of us. Thank you Lauren! As we were seated, Season's gave us a card with a long, personal sentiment written by hand! Who does that? Answer: Seasons 52. Before we finished reading the card, Lauren offered congratulations and treated us to complimentary sparkling wine w/ raspberries. She gave us ample time to review the menu and answered all of our questions. We were assured the scratch kitchen could meet our dietary needs - INDEED THE CHEF DID! We began our meal w/ the light, creamy SUMMER CORN SOUP, which was served at the perfect temperature. The delicious soup is brought to life by savory Applewood bacon and chives! For supper selected the Rack of Lamb cooked medium well, and was fork tender, paired w/ the flavorful JAM JAR, SWEET SHIRAZ 16' from SOUTH AFRICA, which Lauren recommended. The medium body, lightly sweet finish of this wine makes it a true compliment to the lamb. We also had the Pork Tenderloin which was elegantly plated and was equally tender and tasty. It paired well w/ the SANTA JULIA, MENDOZA '16. For dessert we had gluten free cannolis, sans shell - in a word they were "SUPERB." Special Thanks to you all for a memorable dining experience, and milestone made all the more lovely with all of the thoughtful touches, care, attention and the time you all took with us. We look forward to dining with you again.
Been here for lunch and dinner and it does not disappoint. Valet guy stole my roll of quarters, though the last time I came for dinner which was very aggravating so today I self parked. I checked just before I dropped the car off to see where they were and pushed them under something in my console. Checked as soon as I got in my car and they were gone. Confronted the guy and he swore it wasn't him. Told him he's working with a thief then if it wasn't him. Customers beware.
Food quality not what it used to be. Feels very much like a standard chain restaurant now. Apps were good. Steak was over cooked. Fish was only ok. Really disappointed that they got rid of the live music. Was one of the few places in the area that had it and that was one of the reasons we picked the restaurant. Many better options for food in the area. Won't be back.
For special occasions, their private rooms are a wonderful setup without any additional room charge. Their preset menu is reasonably priced. Patty, the banquet manager, paid attention to all details and was very responsive to our needs. I would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone. It's also located in a very nice location with valet parking.
A few business colleagues decided to meet over dinner and the food was fabulous. The service was quick. I think we had the best waiter who was very familiar with the menu. We even got the dessert shot which were just perfect in size and taste. The ambience was phenomenal.
This place is a chain so you would expect them to have their management down to a science. This was not the case. I entered with my reservation and was ignored for about 4 minutes as I stood at the reception counter. They three people behind the counter literally seemed afraid to even acknowledge me until they had their confusion resolved. Once they looked up they were nice and did get me a table. But wait...the table they walked us to was dirty and then our host took off and we were expected to follow I presume? We did and sat at a bar table instead. We were given menus, one lunch and one dinner. Then the server was gone. Finally upon return we ordered drinks and it took a long time for them to arrive. We then ordered a watermelon salad, tuna tartare and the trout. In about three minutes someone rushed out with trout to throw on our table. I told him that we didn't even get the appetizers yet. He hastily left and our server returned with the apps. I informed the server what happened and asked him to make sure our trout was just not sitting under a heat lamp. He said we would get fresh plate.....LIES! The trout came out with a super hot plate, hardly warm fish and the sauce has that viscous glaze on it after sitting for so long under a heat lamp. Everything about our experience screamed "CONFUSION" and "DISORGANIZATION"!!!! Unfortunately this location will keep people coming back. I can not see myself ever returning to such an awful place with mediocre food and horrible management and service.
9-18-17 UPDATE: The manager (Dean) contacted me and offered another dining experience. I took him up on the offer and everything was great. We ordered the trout again and it was spot on. The scallops were great and the fig and bacon flatbread perfect and light! I have to say that they made up for the one bad experience I had before. I didn't expect to receive this after my review, but its shows great customer service and concern in what their patrons think.
The basic taste of the corn soup & salmon salad I ordered was good but the soup had a spicy element to it that I didn't like & the salad contained red peppers which I can't digest. I had asked the waiter if the soup was at all spicy. He assured me that it was not. I know that spiciness is a subjective judgement call. My dining companion who also had the soup could taste what I tasted. I had failed to ask the waiter if there were peppers in the salad so that was my bad. The pieces were large enough so that I could pick them out.
My friend & I went during Restaurant Week. As it we were there during Happy Hour I could have ordered things I know I like for less than the cost for a Restaurant Week dinner, but I wanted to have a 'regular' meal. And each course was delicious. All Seasons 52 staff people were helpful & friendly. Particularly our server Melissa. Great evening.
My wife and I celebrated a dear friend 's birthday here at lunch. We were unaware that there were restaurant week specials, but that was just a bonus. I had trout, which was superb. The little desserts were perfect. Our server was great. A perfect celebration!
