Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated our 35th anniversary at 555. This was the 4th time we have dined at 555 and as always your friendly and knowledgeable staff made us feel like family. Your restaurant is on a short list of recommended spots for friends and family when they want a memorable meal."

  • "I was going to be in Long Beach on business and was looking for a restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday. I found 555 East on OpenTable , read the reviews and booked a table. When a reached the hotel, I asked the concierge for his recommendation and he confirmed that I had made the right choice. It was a wonderful evening and the food was excellent! The Moscow Mules were the best in Long Beach!"

  • "We celebrated my wife's birthday here recently and the staff was simply extraordinary. We were treated like royalty, yet with such warmth and sincerity--we felt like family. What a great place to go and have a drink, relax and let your cares slip quietly into the night...well done!"

  • "Our server was very attentive and kind but the food had problems. The first meal I ordered was the special Columbia River Wild Salmon it was so under cooked i couldn't eat it and then to make matters worse by the time our server was able to bring a replacement my dinner guests were finished with their meal. In fairness they removed the charge from our check but I think they should have managed the replacement meal closer and made sure that it was expedited- it took almost 20 minutes to receive the replacement dish. I will give them another try next time i'm in the area but this time around they fell short of my expectations for a very expensive and usally excellent steak house."

  • "Celebrated daughter's birthday last Saturday night. Total of 9 in our party. Arrived 30 minutes early- no problem, seated right away. Food was excellent, on par with Ruth's Chris for steaks. The only down side is that the waiter needs to learn how to pour wine. We had a $100 bottle of wine for which five of us were going to share. The waiter didn't pay attention, and by the time he got to my glass, the bottle was empty; he had poured all the wine in the first four glasses. To compound it, he then offered to go back to the other four and take some out-terrible service."

  • "Enjoyed the food and the ambience. The wait staff were friendly and competent - they could have paid more and better attention to the preparation and service of the two bottles of wine I brought from home. Beyond uncorking the bottles, they did very little, including failing to monitor and refill wine glasses as needed."

  • "THis is a great restaurant for special occassions. The night we dined with 2 other couples the noise level in the room we ere seated was at a level it made it near impossible to visit even though we were seated at a round table."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We have been there a number of times and for the first time, we were disappointed in our steak. We ordered the bone-in rib eye and it was full of gristle, hard to cut and eat. Honestly, we should have sent it back. We usually get a filet and have never had a bad one. We will go back but never order that again."

  • "I've been aching for a good steak in LA/ OC area since I've considered the best steaks I've had have been outside California. I will now say the best steak in Southern California is at 555 East! Their meat is aged, & prepared to perfection! I always have either the 8 oz or 12 oz filet mignon, and am always satisfied. This place never disappoints and will leave you coming back for more!"

  • "My wife and I have been trying recommend steak houses for the past two to three years it our vice. We have been to small mom and pops restaurants and enjoyed the steaks. We have been to Flemming's and Mastro's even Morton's. We found we loved Flemming's the best we could never find a steak as good as Flemming's. Then last night we went to 555 East. The steak melted in my mouth it was the juiciest steak I have ever had in my life. The drinks where amazing and the wine list was very prestigious. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was just like being in a NY steak house."

  • "I took my girl friend to the restaurant 2 years ago for her Birthday. We had a great time. Last year we went somewhere else. The restaurant was very nice as well as the meal, but we enjoyed ourselves much more at 555 East, so we decided to return. We arrived early, and were seated promptly. The steak was the best and I am a long time carnivore. The staff was very attentive and helped make it a perfect evening out. We will return."

  • "The best part of the meal was the bread that was served hot out of the oven. The heirloom tomatoe salad was good. The filet mignon was more flavorful as a leftover the next day"

  • "It's one of our new favorite restaurants! Being right in the city of Long Beach it's so close to business, et al. Our server was Amy and she made the experience very special, friendly and knowledgable. She explained menu items and suggested a couple of wines."

  • "I don't do red meat much, so the type of steak I had was recommended by the Waitress. Really was amazing. As were the garlic mash potatoes. While the calamari was great, if you have to choose, go with the roasted garlic and feta cheese. The best! PS...I always appreciate a confirmation reservation phone call, which 555 did. It was a great experience for a special occasion."

  • "We love visiting 555 East whenever we stay in Long Beach, which is usually at least once a year. I've heard my friends rave about the steaks, and they do look excellent. I haven't eaten beef for years but I'm able to find a few dishes on the menu to make me happy. They have a wonderful beet & Humboldt blue goat cheese salad that I can't wait to have again. The Caesar salad for two is made table-side and looks wonderful - I heard no complaints. They have a good wine list, but you can also bring your own. Not sure what the corkage is. All in all a great place. You leave full & satisfied & quite a bit lighter in the pocket. This is not a discount eatery."

  • "I took my friend here for lunch, and we had a lovely time - great relaxed pace, the food was wonderful, the service attentive, but not pushy, the atmosphere relaxing and upscale, not stuffy or uncomfortable at all. A birthday candle in a creme brulee was brought to our table for the birthday girl, and it was excellent!"

  • "My husband and I have been coming here since before we had children (ages 8 and 6). We are never disappointed with the food nor the service. We do save this place only for special occasions - like Father's Day or a celebration - but each time is great. The food never, ever disappoints! And now that we have small children, this place still works for us. It's not too stuffy that the kids have to remain uncomfortably still for the duration of the dinner. We love 555 East and can't wait to come back for the next special occasion."

  • "Everything was great but they seated us in a corner of the restaurant that apparently didn't have air conditioning because it was really hot at our table. I've been here before and not had that problem. It must have just been the location of the table because when we were leaving and walking through the rest of the restaurant it was much cooler..."

  • "Made reservations to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Showed up about 15 minutes before our reservation time of 8pm, and was told it would be closer to that time before we were seated, so we went to the bar. At about 8:10 we check with the hostess to see whether we should order another drink at the bar or if we'd be seated soon, and were told that she remembered what we looked like and she would come find us when our table was ready. The bartender was nice enough to comp us each a drink for our wait and we were finally seated about 8:25pm. Our server was great, food came out perfectly, and the rest of the evening was very nice. Besides the snotty hostess, I would highly recommend this place for a special occasion."

  • "This place is hands down all around an awesome experience. I tried lobster tails here for the first time, and even the warm bread they serve with the butter is so tasty! Very nice, elegant decor. I great place for fine dinner or a special night out. The service is always immaculate. By the end of the night after the amazing experience and service, you will not even look twice at the bill. Well worth it. A must try! Their hot lava cake for dessert is always a must. A+++ Easy and safe parking- Valet 10$ ! Want to have a great experience, enjoy amazing food, and impress your date all in one? This is the place !!!"
