Seasons 52 is an American fine dining restaurant chain owned and internally developed by Darden Restaurants, Inc. in 2003. The brand concept is to deliver a sophisticated atmosphere, seasonal menu, and offer fresh ingredients to deliver a lower-calorie option when compared to its competition.[2][3] As of March 2014, there are 41 locations in the United States throughout 16 different states.

The restaurant is a seasonally inspired fresh grill and wine bar. The core menu changes four times a year with every season, and all the features on the right hand panel of the menu change every week, 52 times a year. George Miliotes, their master sommelier, specifically visits different vineyards in order to hand pick wines for Seasons 52. The menu showcases over 100 different bottles of wine, 52 of which are available by the glass.

They also proclaimed there wasn't any butter in the restaurant, until recently when a lobster tail accompaniment was added to their menu.

All items on the menu are said to be under 475 calories and nutritionally balanced.[4]
