Better than I expected

Okay, the HC reviews are mixed on this place but if you’re in the area and can’t decide on a place to go, then this place meets the need.
My husband and I were killing time and decided to get a bite to eat here. We started with the mushroom flatbread. Yes, we held the goat cheese and the choice accentuated the great flavors presented with the mushrooms and onions.
I settled on the Butternut Squash soup for the main meals for my lunch, which rounded out the meal perfectly. Nice quantities and perfectly content.

Confusing menu

Girls Dinner and a movie night 2 of us are vegan and 2 are omni. We settled on Seasons 52 it was supposed to be vegan friendly with a Vegan menu. Well sorta, basically they rearranged their menu to show items that could be made vegan if modified. It was seriously confusing. Under the VEGAN heading they had items listed with cheese and in parenthesis it stated to order without cheese. I am kind of missing the point on this, but whatever. Anyway we shared the avo toast, mushroom flatbread(hold the cheese), butternut squash gnocchi, and spinach and strawberry salad (hold the cheese).
The avo toast was delicious I totally recommend., like I really recommend.
The spinach salad was good it was basically spinach strawberries, a vinaigrette dressing and almonds. It was good and the ingredients were fresh.
The mushroom flatbread was lacking flavor, a balsamic drizzle or something to give it a little more zing would have been great as this is an item that is generally served with cheese so it was missing a flavor profile to set it apart that could easily been remedied with a salty or sweet/sour element like I stated a balsamic drizzle would have taken care of this.
The butternut squash gnocchi was ok. I was super excited because gnocchi generally has an egg as a binding agent. It could have used a little more sauce. It was a little bland, but the butternut squash was perfect, I wish there were more of it in the dish as this really was the star of the plate. The sundried tomatoes were very good and paired well. I would say yes this is a great dish and vegan without modification. I confirmed on the phone as well as in person.
The service is excellent and their wine and cocktail list very good. Great location for a meal with omni friends. but just be careful of the menu it is confusing.

Pros: Excellent Service, Healthy fresh ingrediants, Great omni spot for kinda fancy

Cons: kinda pricy, Confusing menu, limited options

If the omnivores insist, at least there's options

I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. Yes, they have a vegan menu, which is appreciated. However, there are plenty of other vegan options in the area that serve more flavorful dishes at a more convenient price. If you are going to see a show at OCPAC and your friends/family insist on a venue that is close and not 100% vegan (like the nearby Seabirds), I would suggest this place as your best option.

As for specifics, I ordered the Vegetarian Tasting off the Vegan Menu. It was decent, but not crave-worthy. I did enjoy the variation of the dish.

Pros: Vegan Menu, Healthy, Variety of Choices

Cons: Pricey, Unmemorable

Not Just A Salad

Finally a non vegan restaurant with veg options that aren't just a salad. They offer a separate vegan menu with a different variety of dishes. The veggies were a little oily, but it's ok every once in a while.

Pros: Separate vegan menu

Cons: Oily

Great to feel some respect

I picked Seasons 52 for a work team lunch recently. We are a combo of vegan (me), a couple of vegetarians, a couple of "near vegetarians", and then the usual omnivores. I found the restaurant on the Happy Cow app.

Everyone enjoyed their food. I was extremely happy that they actually have completely seperate menus for vegan/vegetarian customers, not just the usual hard-to-find asterix or two buried in the regular menu. So that meant already that there were several options to choose from - it wasn't just a matter of making do with oily grilled veggies and/or a salad.

The food was imaginative, balanced, healthy, and low in oil. I was super happy! I had the "vegan sampler" which was three of their offerings: a salad of red qunioa and barley, black bean soft taco, and "planked" baked tofu. Along with it all there was baked pumpkin, a small portobello mushroom, a head of Chinese broccoli, and braised Brussels sprouts. Totally delicious! Not drowing in oil!

The restaurant has a classy decor, low-lit, quiet. A great place for a date night, a great place to go with your meat and fish-eating friends. Everyone will be happy and well-fed. The chef attempts to limit the calories for all dishes to around 500 calories or something like that. I don't recall the exact number the server mentioned, but it's a place that focuses on quality ahead of quantity.

I'm so happy to be able to add this to my list of local options.

Pros: Dedicated vegan/vegetarian menus, Healthy whole food, low in oil, Something for everyone
