We made a last minute reservation through Open Table for 7:30 pm on Father's Day. It was a party of 10 (including kids). We arrived on-time but then had to wait 25 minutes for the table to be cleared and set as the restaurant was very busy. Our waiter was friendly and very helpful, however, we were all disappointed that it took an hour for our appetizers to begin to arrive. We were all famished by that late hour (9:10 pm). There was also much confusion over an order that one couple had decided to share. First, two orders were delivered to the table and one had to be sent back. Then, about 5 minutes later, two half-orders were delivered. More over, the entrée was delivered before the appetizers. We made the best of the situation and the food was delicious but given that we didn't finish until after 10 pm, it was not an experience anyone in our party would like to repeat.

We enjoyed a nice Father's Day dinner. Two of us had the filet , which was very good and one of us had the sea bass, also good. We were seated in the bar area which is where I would not usually sit for a special occasion, but we enjoyed the piano player/singer and our server Michaela was very good and we enjoyed the overall experience. I don't usually eat dessert, but it's hard to resist having a little bit of sweet when the dessert are in mini glasses.

Hadn't been there in 6 months since the last time I went we had to wait awhile to be seated for our reservation. This time was no different. 30 minute wait to be seated with reservation, manager was apologetic, hostess certainly was not. Seemed understaffed as our server was running around like crazy and constantly forgot about us. Was nearly a 3 hour dining experience so things didn't get better waiting for each course to come out. I'd probably not be back if it wasn't for the fact that they have a vegan menu, albeit mainly the same dishes just without an ingrediant rather than a substitution. The meat eaters at our table all were impressed by the food, only complaint I heard was the risotto being a little crunchy. The vegetarian sampler was a monochromatic beige of tofu carrots and potatoes. Didn't look appetizing but got thumbs up from the diners. Best thing of the night was the pricey cocktails.

We ate at Seasons 52 for Father's Day. We chose it because of the variety on the menu which is good for my kids. However, the service was average, it was extremely noisy, and the food was fair. The restaurant was understandably busy for the holiday, but it did not seem that the restaurant had prepared adequately for the totally foreseeable busy evening.

We are previous customers. Our last trip to Seasons 52 was on Father's Day. The food was not as perfect as in the past. Maybe it's because it was so busy that day on Father's Day. Hopefully our next visit will be better.

Fathers Day. Service was horrible and it was the last time I was there. It appears they book many more tables than they can accommodate. Huge crowd in waiting area, then slow service.

Seasons 52 specializes in using seasonal ingredients in their daily offerings on the menu. One of the specials when we were there was asparagus soup with a lemon chantilly cream. It was outstanding! The lobster and mozzarella flatbread was also good, but not as outstanding as the soup. My favorite part of the menu is dessert. They offer "mini indulgences" - small creamy desserts in a parfait glass - that are just enough to finish off a meal with something sweet. There is a good selection to choose from. The key lime is my favorite so far.

Many would disagree, BUT, I do prefer restaurants that list calorie counts on their menus! Seasons 52 does. Thank you! The quality of the food is good, if somewhat underseasoned. For example, the rack of lamb, while a generous portion, needed more herbs, garlic, etc. Enjoyed the Meyer lemon and ricotta filled ravioli. The risotto that accompanied the wild salmon was lacking creaminess. Scaled back calorie-wise, but that also scaled back flavor and texture. Really like the mini dessert portion sizes.

The service from our waitress Princess was exceptional. When Iadey reservation and called the restaurant before I arrived they had all of the special notes correct : anniversary celebration and my wife is allergic to sulfites and alcohol. Reiterated that to our waitress and manager. Kitchen got it completely WRONG. Bought another steak back and it wasn't right. They comped the meal and the chef gave us a gift card for a future meal. Great service just didn't follow instructions.
Love the flights and flats and salads, always fun and fresh
It was a fun evening with my friends!
They are very sweet to offer me a free dessert and a small glass of Champagne since I was celebrating my Birthday! We sat in a booth in the bar area and listened to some great music!!

The food is both healthy and tasty. We enjoyed 2 flatbreads--lobster and steak--and the lemon ricotta ravioli for apps. The rack of lamb and salmon were delicious mains. We sampled several of the "desserts for one". Alex Broder, a manager, was extremely helpful and made our experience even more enjoyable.
Brunch selections are very limited, although, the regular lunch menu is also available. I still love this restaurant. Everything I have eaten here is delicious. Especially, the mini key lime dessert! The wait staff are all very friendly and attentive.
We went there for our 33rd anniversary and had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, the wine was great and the extra touches for our anniversary were very special.

Service and food was great. Air conditioning made us all freezing. We kept on getting different answers to why it was so cold. Nobody did anything about it.
A step above
The food is sublime - and who wouldn't feel good about leaving sated AND healthy? I love the seasonal, farm to table style. The ambiance of live music wafting through from the bar. But Season's 52 is so much more than that, its the extra care that goes into everything, the gentility and manners of a by-gone era, the warmth of hospitality. It's the easy casual elegance of how everything is done from the sommelier's recommendations to the hostess greeting you by name. This is definitely one of my favorite places to eat.

Seasons 52 is very overpriced. Because the portions are small, it's necessary to order several courses. The food varies considerably in quality from visit to visit . There's just something stake and wrong with the restaurant right now.
Hard to Go Wrong Here
This was only our second visit in 5 months but we love this place! Food is excellent quality, service and ambiance are friendly. Wines are affordable - you can even try before you buy. Have had the scallops twice now and, besides being a generous portion, they are impeccably prepared. We dine out infrequently because we love to cook ourselves, but if we decide to go out, this is at the top of the list for casual, but very nice, dining.

Fish and salad were excellent. Coffee and wine very good. Desserts poor - would rather have as Frozen Ring-Ding, but dessert is not why we go to Seasons 52. See you soon.
Food was excellent.
I had soup and split a dinner. The portion was split in the kitchen and it was perfect for a 76 year old.

I enjoyed the timely service. Food was pretty decent. The Chilean seabass may have been slightly overcooked, but the black rice was a nice surprise. Enjoyed that. The short ribs were tender, and the add-ons made it easy for us to choose our orders. We were able to add scallops and lobster tail. We got to have it all! Wrapped up with yummy small desserts. Pecan was a hit, as was the macchiato one!!!! I'll be back :)

Our family loves Seasons52, especially the Bethesda North location. The space and ambience of the dining room are excellent. We were given a private room for our family gathering, and it was the perfect space and size for our group was very private also. This is our "go-to" restaurant. Our waitress was awesome too!

As always, the food and service at Seasons 52 were excellent. We both loved the asparagus soup and the sea bass entree. I was, however, disappointed that despite having made a reservation, we were seated in the bar directly in front of the piano player and within view of the front door. My understanding has always been that bar seating is 'first come, first served' and I would have preferred to spend my anniversary dinner in a quieter section of the restaurant.
Quality of food is going in the wrong direction...
Repeat customer. All is nice and good. The filet mignon is not as it used to be. Also while the plates came hot, the food itself was of moderate temperature. Hope the food quality will get back to what it used to be.
Great service! Great dinner! Love this place!
My family was in from out of town visiting and we all had dinner at Seasons 52 on Friday evening. It was a lovely meal and an awesome time. Our waiter was awesome and knowledgeable. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and we had a wonderful time. I love Seasons 52 and recommend it to everyone! I even told all of my Pilates classes that they all need to check it out due to the healthy menu and awesome wine list.
