Red meat at its bestIts a steakhouse that cooks up red meat like its supposed to be done. Service was excellent, portions generous (everyone was taking leftovers home) and my creme brulee perfect. Wine list, though not extensive, had a good collection and the specialty martini list was impressive. This is not creative gastronomics, but well done, solid steakhouse grub.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!As residents of downtown Long Beach we are so thankful to have such an awesome place to eat within walking distance of our home. For the rest of you, it is well worth the drive. You will not be disappointed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous FirstFor starters we were late for our reservation but called ahead to advise the restaurant of our tardiness and the restaurant was very understanding but promised to seat us when we arrived. Upon the arrival we waited maybe 10 minutes fore being seated. Our waitress Veronica came right over and welcomed us and made us feel right at home. From the cocktails to the entree everying was superb!!!! The entire staff was very attentive and anticipated our needs even down to the valet who asked about our dining experience,,,,what a first!! We choose 555 for Mothers Day dinner and the restaurant was all we had expected.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA Wonderful Experience!We checked in early and got the best seat in the house, a window with a view of the Queen Mary in the distance. We were the only guests in this part of the dining room. Our waitress was brilliant at first as we were the only people in her station, but as soon as other guests arrived, she seemed to have forgotten us. We ordered an oyster sampler and they were delicious, but she could only remember one variety when asked. We then waited 20 minutes while she made table-side salads for others and forgot our salad order. When our main course arrived, all was forgotten as it was some of the best food that I've had in recent memory. Expensive, but worth it! I look forward to a return visit!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe absolute best steaks in town555 East is the classic steak house. Great for business dinners or a personal celebration. The waiters are very attentive and accommodating for variations on the food. Good size portions. But most of all, the steaks are fantastic and cooked just the way you order them. I had the New York Strip Capella style with caramelized onions and mushrooms which was one of the best steaks I've ever had. It gets a little noisy with the all the typical steak house business chatter, but it's not distracting. I continually recommend 555 to friends. It is our "go to" steak house in Long Beach.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful night outMy wife and I went to one of our favorites, 555 East. Service was great as always.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMReviews to be trustedI was looking for a restaurant in Long Beach and chose it based on the positive reviews written by others. Our table was ready for us right when we arrived. For a Saturday night it wasn't overly crowded and we didn't have to wait very long for our food after ordering. My boyfriend ordered a beer, a salad with blue cheese dressing, and the teriyaki steak with mashed potatoes. He loved it! The steak was cooked just right. It wasn't slathered with sauce but you had the option to do so with a side of extra sauce. He gave it a 10/10. The blue cheese was one of the best he's had. I ordered a tea, salad with 1000 Island, and the macaroni and cheese. It was very tasty! Creamy and rich. It was a nice sized portion. Tab with tip was about $80.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousVery delicious food and lovely atmosphere.

Wonderful wine list.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AM555 Should be 10-10-10!I initially picked this restaurant because of the gret reviews from another site. We celebrated my daughters 26 th birthday and what a wonderful night we had. The food was absolutely superb. Our steaks were all expertly prepared, seasoned to perfection. The shrimp cocktail was fabulous and had nice kick to it from what tasted like wasabi. You must try the chocolate bread pudding. By far one of the best desserts I have ever eaten. If you want world class service, reguest, Brian. He is bubbly, attentive and a great multi tasker. We are definitely going back soon!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMust try!It sounds funny for such a nice place but, try the Mac n cheese. :)3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful dinnerWe had a wonderful dinner at 555.
