Florida Guide > Dining
Friends are ours returned from their trip to Florida full of praise after they had visited Seasons52. I ha previously not heard of this restaurant but apparently it was the first of a chain of these restaurants to be opened in Florida and it became immediately popular.
It is situated on Sandlake Road which is known to the locals as “Restaurant Row”.
As we heading toward the Dr. Phillips area we were looking everywhere for Seasons 52 and we suddenly spotted it tucked away by a shopping plaza, we then realised why we had not seen it before!
When we got there we took advantage of the valet parking and when we went inside we found the atmosphere was really buzzing. We had not pre booked but we did not have to wait very long. We had drinks in the bar area first before being shown to our table.
This is a very sophisticated Restaurant and Wine Bar, their food is extremely healthy and they only use natural cooking techniques such as grilling over oak and mesquite, which gives the food exceptional taste and fewer calories. Their food is always seasonal and the menu changes every week hence their name Seasons 52.
All the staff were extremely efficient and friendly and the service we got from our personal waiter was excellent. The menu was fairly extensive and there was something for everyone, one of our party was a vegetarian and there was plenty to choose from.
We all had flatbreads to start with, which were absolutely delicious and not too heavy that they fill you up too much before your main course.
My Father devoured the filet mignon with crushed potatoes, asparagus and grilled crimini mushrooms which he said was fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed the Blackened mahi mahi with mashed sweet potato and sweet pepper relish and vegetables. Our vegetarian friend chose a Hot Veggie Salad that was basically a smorgasbord of vegetables with tofu, she said it was one of the best meals she had had during her stay.
There was a very good selection of desserts which were all brought to your table for you to choose. These included my Father’s favourite Key Lime Pie, Chocolate and Peanut Butter Mousse, Old Fashioned Carrot Cake, Pumpkin Pie with Gingersnap Crust which I enjoyed whilst my friend had Pecan Pie with Vanilla Mousse. I though all the desserts were reasonably priced at $2. 50.
After our meal our waiter told us to take a stroll out the back, we were so glad we did. The view from the back is breathtaking, with the full moon, fireworks in the distance and the lake in front.
This is a restaurant that I would really recommend.
