Great Food, but iffy environment. Eating at Seasons is always a treat. The menu is adequate and the food is always prepared well and presented tastefully. Service has always been great and the staff are friendly and anxious to please. All of this easily gets a five-star rating. There are some detractors, however. The nice linen tablecloths are covered with white butcher paper. In my opinion, this just doesn't go with a restaurant serving excellent food. Also, the table service consists of a fork and a knife -- no spoon, no salad fork (one wasn't even brought to us with a salad!). What's that all about? Also, something needs to be done about noise. The walls and/or ceiling should be treated and carpet added -- or something. It is much too noisy to have any kind of conversation. So, this aspect of the restaurant gets only three-stars. I'll average it all out to an overall four-star rating. With a little attention to detail, this place would clearly be five-stars all around.
Great Seasonal Food. This is a late review, but we ate here in July 2008 while visiting the city. We entertained a client there, and all of us had a fabulous time. Artichokes were featured, and we had artichoke raviolis, and an artichoke appetizer. Those in our party ordered salmon and steak. All of it was well prepared and timely served. We ordered a bottle of wine based on the waiter's recommendation, which was terrific as well. The waiter was delightful and attentive. Coming from the major metroplexes of Houston and Boston, we were surprised and delighted to find such a sophisticated menu in a charming location. When we go west again, we'll be back!
VERY poor acoustics, and bad service. I visited this place on a Friday night, and sat on the second floor with three friends. It WAS Friday, and it was crowded; but I couldn't hear myself, much less my friends or the server! The service was pretty bad--forgotten, then late orders; no cutlery despite multiple requests; and several spills on our laps and table. The drinks were good but not stellar. Several of the desserts were quite tasty, but stay away from the Flourless Chocolate Cake. Usually, this is my favorite thing on any menu--this version is an oversweet, tasteless, ashy brick. What a waste of good cocoa (and calories!). I won't be back!
New American classics make this pan-roasting restaurant a true culinary melting pot..
Many of-the-moment restaurants are rebelling against culinary fads and embracing the classics. Trendy or not, the food here is great, with an emphasis on pan roasting and spit roasting over oak wood. Call it a testament to the diverse cultural influences that created the American culinary landscape. Long wood floors enhance the Old Town ambiance and the enclosed upstairs patio is great for parties.
Seasons, with a name that implies constant change, prides itself on its commitment to new American classics like fried won tons, fettuccini, and Szechuan barbecue babyback ribs. Seasons is pricey, but a mere $33 can feed two with a 22-ounce Black Angus garlic and black pepper ribeye steak, served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, grilled vegetables and zinfandel sauce.
Dish to Die For
The pan-roasted duck is so good you'll never want it any other way.
