SO excited that they offer not only a Gluten Free menu but also a Dairy Free menu. I had the rainbow trout and it was delicious! The heritage carrots were a different twist to a boring vegetable. Yummy! This is an upscale, pricey restaurant but definitely worth it for a special occasion!
Sunday 6/5 I had a nice meal with my husband at Seasons 52 in Birmingham. We chose this restaurant specifically for it’s gluten sensitive menu, as I have celiac disease. Upon meeting our waitress I let her know that I have celiac disease (and explained what I couldn’t have), I already had the gluten sensitive menu in my hand.We ordered the Ahi Tuna Tartare. While ordering, I asked about the crisp that comes with it. The waitress told me that the crisp was gluten sensitive but that it was not gluten free. She said that nothing in the restaurant is gluten free. (I made the mistake of not pursuing this further, and will be instead asking questions to corporate to clarify this issue.) Since she stated that the crisp is not in-fact gluten free, I asked for the crisp on the side, so my husband could have it, but not potentially cross-contaminate me.The Ahi Tartare was great, love it.I also enjoyed the shrimp and grits (gluten sensitive menu also).When the check came, we were charged an upcharge for the gluten sensitive crisp, which I couldn’t even eat. The gluten sensitive menu has many options. I’m very happy to have it.My issue with this restaurant is the unsureness of the gluten free status of the food. Apparently, there is no gluten ingredients used. However, the waitress said there is no gluten free food. Which is it? As a celiac, I need to know if this restaurant is safe toeat at. I hope that corporate will respond to me and I’ll be able to update this review.
I have not been diagnosed very long so this hasn't been as easy time for me. For thanksgiving this year I just didn't feel up to cooking so my fiancé and I went to seasons 52 to dinner. I have read a lot about my condition and know that some restaurants leave a lot to be desired when it comes to eating GF so this was our first time venturing out since my diagnosis. First of all we were immediately pleased. The atmosphere was splendid. The wait staff friendly and actually knowledgeable about GF! I couldn't believe it. Prior to retrieving the GF menu (which was NOT a xeroxed sheet of paper but a smaller, lovely replica of the regular menu) our server explained that not only could would they accommodate a GF diet but many others including vegetarian, vegan, sodium restricted, etc. From what I've been reading up on the food that is offered as GF can sometimes also be taste-free but my trout dinner was SO good it was exactly what I would have eaten prior to my diagnosis. The gala apple slaw, carrots and mashed potatoes were SO good I couldn't believe I was at a restaurant and eating GF and not feeling deprived. I left the restaurant feeling more hopeful than I had in a very long time. Sorry for going on and on like that!
Visited while interviewing in area. Loved the atmosphere here. Live jazz piano/singer. Had the salmon and it was prepared perfectly -- didn't have any symptoms afterward. A little pricey, but a great place with several GF options available. Will be back!!
I am celiac and I have been to seasons 52 twice! The flat breads are fantastic! Even my husband who isn’t celiac eats them! I have not had any issues at seasons 52! I will continue to go back!
They have a separate gluten free menu when you ask for it I told the restaurant staff twice, in addition to asking for and ordering from the gluten free menu, but still received regular food. The staff was effusively apologetic and comped the meal for the entire party, however I did ingest gluten. I took a few bites and became doubtful. When I asked the waitress, she looked at it and knew immediately it did not look like their gluten free version.
I was pleasantly surprised by this place. It has the look of a generic eatery -- one you find in large malls. The food was fresh and well prepared. They have a GF menu that lists what's GF or how they could prepare it so it would be GF, like serving it without the roll. The server wrote Gluten Free on the order ticket without me asking boosting my confidence that they knew what they were doing. Their "thing" is serving deserts in small glasses. There was only one that could be GF, so that was a bit disapponting.
The first time I came here I was delighted because I was told their GF flatbread was cooked in a separate oven space. The second time I came, I was told that there was only one oven, and I had been lied to the first time. I didn’t feel a reaction the first time, but now it’s not worth the risk. An unfortunate and very frustrating scenario.
Seasons 52 does have a good selection of GF options on their separate menu. The flatbreads can be made GF and they are tasty and crispy which is a nice change for the gluten free option. The servers are well versed and let the kitchen know of the allergy so they try to avoid cross contamination.
Son & I both Celiac, had grilled trout from gf menu and raspberry chocolate chip cannoli w/o the cannoli for lunch today. Food was great and neither of us had any reactions so we will definitely return .
After eating here a few times I feel confident recommending this restaurant as an excellent and safe choice for sensitive celiacs. The separate and extensive gf menu has delicious options and the servers are knowledgeable about gluten and cross contamination. I’ve been told they have separate prep and cooking areas and food is served separately with the server stating it’s a gf meal. I feel safe eating here even during busy times and have never gotten sick afterwards.
I’m very sensitive to gluten and felt confident in the staff at this restaurant! Our server has worked there four years and told us how they prevent cross contamination. EXCELLENT flat breads!!!! Thin, crispy and delicious!!!
Fantastic restaurant for gluten free & dairy free. I asked waitress if they had gluten free entrees and she immediately brought me s new menu, gluten free on one side, dairy free on the other. I choose a kale soup, as it was both dairy free & gluten free and added a chicken, roasted onion flat bread as asked them to prepare it without cheese! First flat bread I’ve had since beginning this food journey 2 weeks ago. Both were delicious. Server confirmed when bringing me my food that it was gluten free! I’ve not had this many delicious choices!
Good spot. Had the halibut and the tenderloin off the Spring menu, both really great. The kids had a delicious flatbread cheese pizza and grilled chicken, both were great. They modified a chocolate moose dessert to make gf for the kids as well.
Seasons 52 has a separated “gluten sensitive” menu, which includes many of their regular entrees and even a gluten sensitive flatbread option for an up-charge. The food was delicious! Its a little pricey, but the ingredients are seasonal and portions are just enough.
Seriously amazing. We went here two nights while we were on vacation in Ft Lauderdale this year. Wait staff is amazing and knowledgeable and they have an extensive allergy menu so you feel safe eating there. Drinks were also very good.
Went here for dinner during the winter. Ordered scallops with risotto and vegetables and an appetizer flatbread tomato Roma both from the gluten sensitive menu. Was very sick the next day. Food tasted good, but bad coming up the next day. I would caution against going here
Many options to choose from and staff is knowledgeable about what is safe. Amazing shrimp and grits, flatbreads, venison chops, salads, and soups. There is usually a gf dessert option. The vodka used in their specialty cocktails is gluten free.
We had great meals and the staff seemed well-versed on GF options and restrictions. I've eaten the lamb loin, GF flatbread with short ribs, and dessert which was just the filling that goes in their cannolis (without the shell, of course). IF you get that dessert, make sure they fix you a fresh one and don't just pull out the little cookie shell.
. Our group of nine came here during a water taxi tour and as I was ordering, checked I was only GF not dairy free as well when I ordered the mashed potatoes that have cream in them. They brought my food out and did confirm it was GF. Very good service and welcoming upon arrival!
We had a tasty lunch and the staff was conscientious about alerting the kitchen I’m celiac. The hostess and waiter each told me my food would be prepared with separate utensils in a separate area. The GF dinner menu has numerous options so we plan to return to try it.
Staff was very accommodating about options for GF and select DF. They have a special allergen menu with options for each but not one for multiple allergens. I had to still do some flipping of menu and ask many questions and still make special requests. However, they were offered and fulfilled graciously, at least as far as the waitress goes. As first time guests, we tried the roasted mushroom flatbread as an appetizer and it was really good. Meal was a bit pricey but good. We would go back.
Ordered directly from the “gluten sensitive” menu and informed the server that I had a wheat allergy. She assured me that she would let the kitchen know. Food was just okay. Unfortunately about an hour later I was sick. I’m not extremely sensitive and usually do okay at restaurants. Will not be returning.
Many, many options on a GF menu! They call it “Gluten Sensitive” because there is a chance of cross contamination, but menu states that dishes do NOT use gluten containing ingredients and, as you can watch the kitchen work through the glass, obvious steps were taken to reduce/eliminate any cross contamination. The Head Chef/Kitchen Manager will not hesitate to send a dish back if he feels it is not suitable to be taken to the table. They have fresh, seasonal dishes- Menu will change seasonally. Amazing food- lobster flatbread, roasted cauliflower, sea bass with snow peas and black rice, cherry cream brûlée. Flatbread contains no Xanthan Gum. Staff was accommodating, informed and caring. Manager came to our table. I’m an extremely sensitive Celiac and did NOT get sick. I will eat here every time that we are in Memphis! For a restaurant that is not a dedicated GF facility, they do 100% better than most at efforts to eliminate any cross contamination.
The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. There is a gf menu and they say there is a separate food station and the staff is trained when it comes to allergies and cross contamination. Gluten free flat bread pizza that are on their own individual cooking pan in the stone oven. That was a treat! I am very sensitive and I had a great experience eating here.
