The Seasons Bistro
Experience casual, upscale dining at the Seasons Bistro. Imagine...sitting in a high backed booth along an exposed brick wall, candle light, linen table cloths and napkins & black napkins. Seasons Bistro is where you would find yourself dining, located just off the square of McDonough, in an 1883 building. Live music completes the setting for a perfect dining experience. Chef Sam Pagan began his illustrious career at the early age of eight. Under the tutelage of his mother, he acquired the basic culinary skills necessary for a strong foundation. During his time in the Navy, he also came to appreciate the unity that food brings to people. "Whether it is dinner, dessert or just coffee, great fellowship and personal connection through food always unites people." Chef Sam. Come experience the new affordable elegance menu starting in March 2013.
My wife and I went there for our wedding anniversary. I was great. I was surprised that the quality of food was good for that size of a place (small intimate atmosphere). Food was well seasoned, not over seasoned, and plated well. The desert we had was great also. Comparable to upscale restaurants in Atlanta, Buckhead.
Seasons Bistro one of the worst places to eat. It took them an hour and 45 minutes to get our food. When we ask to see the manager she looked at us and said, well you order 5 Filet (like it was our fault) and then went on to tell us that it takes 30 to 35 minutes to cook them. Well what did they do the other hour and 15 minutes. We were so shock to hear her try to say it was our fault, she was a poor manager and what happen to customer service? At the end of the night she never came over to say she was sorry and never offer a discount or anything. I will make sure next time someone ask me about them to let them know NOT TO GO THERE.....
We had reservations here for nine people. We ordered wine, they were out of it. I wanted asparagus they said it was seasonal. I asked for anything else that wasn't a carbohydrate they offered zuccini I accepted. Five minutes later I was told that because it was lunch i could not have it because they could not prep it. I asked if they had broccoli and they said they did. Bread was a dollar a basket and we skipped it. We did order 5 appetizers. Pot stickers ( not great), calamari ( good), spring rolls ( decent). 25 minutes after waiting for our food they came out and said they only had enough fries for 1 order. Seriously you can't cut up a potato?? The food finally made it out about 45 minutes after we ordered it and besides the chicken salad that I ordered everyone elses food was terrible. My mother, who was celebrating the renewal of her vows, ordered the fillet and it came out beyond well done to the point that it was grey on the inside. Yuck! The waitress said when did you make your reservation? We told her the night before and she said that was why they were not prepared for our apparently too large group for their kitchen to handle. We were the only people there. The waitress said we should have placed our orders the night before so they could have been prepared. We asked for the manager, there was none there. The waitress did end up crying which I do feel badly about but don't blame the guests because we did not order a day ahead. We were not told to do that. My father talked to the manager on the phone and no discount was offered and full gratuity was charged. I wish they were better because I love to see small local business make it but at this rate they will be closed in a year.
Seasons Bistro - By far one of the worst places I have ever had dinner! The food was not so bad, BUT SERVICE AND MANAGMENT/OWNER words can not describe what POOR customer service there (she)was. I'm just sayin' !
The other evening, my son and daughter-in-law stopped into have dinner, they have a 14 mo. old daughter, for a child that young, she is well behaved, she is not whiny; I can say that with all sincerity, because I have no patients for ill-behaved children. However, they were told this is not a child friendly restaurant, and if they wanted to have dinner there, they could hold the baby. There are no high chairs. Talk about basic discrimination. My husband and I have had dinner there several times, and found it very good, we recommended they try it. However we will never darken there door again. If children are not welcome there, and then I guess neither are we.
After posting this, I read other reviews pertaining to children. We have been fortunate enough to dine at some of the best-rated restaurants in the world, i.e. Horned Dorset Primavera and Al Covo were appropriate dress is necessary, otherwise you are not admitted, and children were welcomed as long as they were dressed appropriately. When a restaurant in McDonough obtains that status then perhaps you have a point, but until such time get off your high horse.
Wonderful place and a great menu. This is our choice for the best cuisine on the south side of Atlanta. It has a unique Bistro atmosphere, is very classy and the prices are very reasonable. It's a great place to take your significant other but leave the kids at home. This is fine dining.
