    I go here every February to break up the winter blues. Love the food but would love to have the lamb back on the menu. I would like to see at least two more dessert options as well. The ambiance is excellent and I love going to seasons.

    We enjoyed our Saturday night experience. Our food was delicious and the ambience was perfect. They were short staffed but the server and host did a great job keeping everyone happy. The setting of the restaurant is so beautiful on a winter’s night with many of the trees in Bowness Park glowing in white lights. One thing I really appreciated is that the music was quiet enough that the four of us could have a conversation and hear each other. This seems to be rare lately. We’ll be back!

    Lovely location, really nice ambiance, relatively quiet, and excellent service. Mushroom risotto with prawns was outstanding. Brownie dessert was mediocre. I wouldn’t order it again. But I’m dreaming about the risotto!

    Appetizer was excellent but steak was a bad cut and came out blue rare rather than medium rare as ordered. This place is probably good for lunch or coffee in the park but I'd go somewhere else for a fine dining experience. The servers here are not trained for that.

    I would have given 5 stars as we enjoyed the meal and service, but when we walked in and were told that we would have to share a table on Valentine’s day with 2 other people even though we had made reservations a while ago we were not impressed. Finally after some words were said on both side we ended up with a great table for 2. Will be back again.

    Party of four for Valentine's Day. We all had the salmon which was very good. The appetizer was also very good (bacon chevre salad). Ambiance by the Bowness Pond was great.

    Seasons of Bowness is a wonderful restaurant. The only complaint that I would have is that the Ambiance, mostly through the music, is very inconsistent. Sometimes the music is nice, relaxing, and fits the atmosphere of the space. At other points during the dining experience the music was faster electronic, almost house music, and it throws off the experience a little bit.. The point of this comment is just some constructive criticism as over all the dining experience is top notch.

    This is a very nice, intimate restaurant with a country-like setting and nice views of the lagoon in Bowness Park. The food is excellent and it is obvious that great care is given to the preparation and presentation of the meals. We have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions, both for dinner and brunch, and we have never been disappointed.

    The food compared with Keg, Joey Tomatoes or Cactus Club is very bad. Small selection. Bad recipes. The coffee was weak - very different from my last time here. It was cold in a restaurant - we expected a cozy experience, which is very important especially in winter time. The biggest strength of this place is its location, but it's not enough. I'm considering, with sadness, to switching to a different meeting place with my friends.

    We love Seasons! Exceptional value, great ambiance. The atmosphere of the the decorated and colorful lights in the trees with families having a good time with their kids really adds to the atmosphere. The menu is not extensive but excellent and very good value for our money. We would recommend Seasons to anyone, and of course, we'll be back. Maxwell was our waiter and he needs a thumbs up, too. Thanks for such a lovely evening with our friends.

    Went for our anniversary... again. Love this place! Menu changes a bit from year to year as do the head chefs. Great to see it is getting busier and busier each year. Beautiful venue and the outside is stunning with all the trees lit up and the fire pits for the skaters on the lagoon.
