Seating is highly discretionary – My friend and I had a week-old reservation and were promptly led to our table by the hostess. As we were sitting down, she stopped us abruptly and told us that the 4-person table was being reserved for a "larger" party, and that we could take our meal at the bar, because the restaurant was extremely full. We looked around and saw 2 person parties all over the place seated at the exact same type of table - the difference being that those couples were older country club types, and we were not. So we complained. A manager (female, dark-haired and slim) attempted to expel us from our table in the most condescending manner possible. We kept our table, but the experience was extremely humiliating, and I sincerely hope that it was not racially motivated. I'd advise you to avoid this place until they resolve their customer service issues.
Good food, BAD service – We went there for Mother's Day. The first thing our server told us was that he had been there all day and was tired. Then, I asked for my fish to be prepared a certain way, and he said I should just order another menu item. He was condescending to my grandmother who is hard of hearing. Our plates were slow to be cleared away, and our drink glasses remained empty for over half the meal. Thank goodness the food was good because the service was TERRIBLE!
Amazing Food, Great Wine – I have visited the Buckhead location twice and have had a great experience. Love the concept of this restaurant, I can ignore that?s it?s a chain. Definitely make reservations unless you want to wait over an hour for a table. There is seating around the bar. The food is great; my only complaint was that the pasta was overcooked. The bartenders are adorable and the piano plays are interactive. Love the unique wine selections, plenty to choose from in all price ranges. Try several of the desserts, you won?t regret it. Will definitely be back.
Great bar – We had drinks at the bar and decided to go ahead and just have dinner there. The music is great and the bartenders are adorable. Lots of great wines and yummy martini's. The flatbreads are delicious, I wanted to eat all of them. I also liked all the salads. I can't wait to go back and try more of the food. Great new chain for Atlanta!
Tis' The Season for the Finest Ingredients – I finally made it to Seasons 52, what a beautifully designed restaurant! A warm and very inviting atmosphere! There's jazz to soothe your soul, a bar and restaurant to please even the most challenging critic. The menu is great, keeping in mind folks with special diets, healthy eating habits(menus offers low sodium dishes) there's no fried food here, just grilled to perfection. The menu changes with the seasons, so you get the freshest ingredients. The food was seasoned well, cooked with care and the flat bread is DA BOMB! Yes, I had dessert....just the right proportions, they come in small glass that resemble liquor shot glasses. If you're looking for heavy, fatty food, calories more than 478...this is not the place for you. I recommend these dishes: Grilled Chicken Citron, Cedar Planked Roasted Salmon, Strawberry Mango Cheesecake, Old-Fashioned Carrot Cake. Rejuvenate your tastebud, try a new sensation...fresh food at Seasons 52....see you there, I'm a regular now!
best idea in a long time – More restaurants would be wise to do what Seasons 52 has done and remind the American public that food need not be drenched in butter, garlic, or other seasonings to taste good. I realize that some of the other reviewers might genuinely have found the food bland, but I did not--perhaps this is because I never cook with salt or butter and I eat blander foods, generally speaking. I have been to Seasons 52 several times now since it has opened and I thought that everything I've had so far has been great. I especially recommend the salmon salad, the flatbreads, the scallops, or the venison. The desserts in the shot glasses are pretty good, too, but watch out: they are pretty caloric. If you check out the website, you can find nutrition facts (which is a great thing, I think), and you'll discover that most everything, even the appetizers and the tiny desserts, have close to 475 calories... just something to be forewarned about. My only qualm about this place is that the staff could be a little more professional. The last time I was there (during a slow time), one of the managers was complaining about a server to another one of the managers, and then complained about a separate issue that had come up that day. It reminded me of being in a lower-scale establishment and hearing the workers gossiping or complaining--no customer wants to hear that. The service should be silent. And don't get me wrong--I've worked in the service industry plenty of times before, so I'm not coming from the perspective of not understanding their service situation. Anyway, to make a long story short: I highly recommend dining here.
Not that great! – The flat breads are awsome, the salad was great.... but the filet was NOT filet. I get filet everywhere I go, and I have to say, it was awful. It was not tender and I hated the smoked smell/taste it had to it.
Oh my Gosh!!!So Goood !!! – My boyfriend and I went there last saturday night. They were on a 1hr45mins wait, so we sat at the bar. I loved how they had an extensive wine list. We got the Shrimp Cocktail for and appetizer, it was so good we got another one! I had the Cedar Plank Salmon with garlic mashed potatoes, and grilled veggies. The veggies were very over cooked, but everything else was good. My boyfriend had the Sea Scallops and they were delicious. After that meal we were so full we couldn't get dessert. The two people next to us got that dessert thing with all the desserts ( ten to be exact). That was too damn much for 2 people I hope that they didn't eat all of that .
The guy playing the piano in the bar was a trip. They put the piano in the middle of the bar it made the bar look too crowded because the bartenders had to go around him. Apparently he was singing, but I barely heard anything. They could have left the piano concept in the garbage!
Healthy Concept!.....But Where's The Taste? Calorie Counters Come Here! – I was just so excited to take a good friend to dinner at the new Season's 52, Buckhead location, as I had previouly been to the Perimeter location. Very beautiful, with a very clean Cal-Chic feeling. We started with the flat bread, like I had at Perimeter, but this time it was burnt around the edges, and taste like Matzo, straight out of the box. My date was excited to get a full healthy meal of less than 475 calories. She ordered roast pork over risoto, with a wine reduction. She did not care for it because it had no taste. I ordered a blackened amberjack sandwich, with a nice healthy side salad. The fish had no taste, and it was obvious the bread was previously frozen. We spoke with Executive Chef, who was very personable, and he agreeded about the seasoning, and said it would add more calories. End of story. We will just take the calories and taste. Seasons 52, Buckhead, should be very good for the older patrons, who might have digestive problems, or the meek, who cannot take anything other than salt on their food. Very nice young lady, who was our server. Update-1/5/07-Very Good place to start the new year, for those who need to count the calories!
