    Took my daughter here for here birthday in May and it was really good. Took my mom here for her birthday on 09/17 and it was even better. We had oysters from Virginia and New York and shrimp cocktail for starters. Prime sirloins were high quality beef and cooked perfectly. Chocoalte souffle was warm chocolately goodness. They have very good wines by the glass in the $15 range like Adaptation cabernet. Service was outstanding.

    This is my third time dining at 555 and I have reviewed it before. The ambiance is just old and dark - they literally haven't changed the place in probably 30 years, but that's how clubby steakhouses are and ambiance was the only consistency between visits. This time, got the smallest shrimp of any shrimp cocktail I've ever had - the size of my little finger buried in bland sauce. Sever (selected for me by the maitre d' based on my last bad experience) was a 16 YEAR veteran who checked on my $48 steak AFTER I was almost completely done. Saw him only once more - zero personality and negligible service. Ok, and steaks served on those sizzling 1976 Golden Coral plates....what is that about? Definitely would NEVER recommend this place.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary there during our recent trip to Long Beach. 30 years ago we lived in the area and the restaurant did not disappoint. It was a favorite of ours when we lived there and great to go back and celebrate and still be treated with exceptional service! We would highly recommend 555 East. Michael our waiter was also outstanding, giving very personalized service!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    We have eaten at the 555 many times over the years and it was consistently good. But Saturday night was disappointing in many ways. The bread had been changed from French to sourdough, which not everyone likes. The caesar salad was totally drenched in dressing - inedible. The steaks were dry on the outside and undercooked on the inside. The mashed potatoes which had once been my favorite, have been changed to include garlic and were not nearly as creamy and delicious as before.Finally, the soufflé was delivered very late, even though we ordered it when we ordered our entrees. It was runny and not at all what a soufflé should be. New chef perhaps? Something has definitely changed at the 555 and not for the better

    We had an amazing dinner on Saturday night, from the first cocktails and appetizers, to the dessert, which by the way, the chocolate Souffle is an absolute must if you like chocolate! The roasted garlic and goat cheese appetizer is one of my favorites, served with bruschetta and toast. The steaks are absolutely superb, cooked to perfection, served with yummy garlic mashed potatoes. They have a lengthy wine list, and delicious cocktails. We received fabulous service, our waters were always kept full, and our waiter was very attentive. Everything was absolutely fabulous, my only complaint was the noise level. We sat in the King's East room, and the acoustics are terrible, we could barely hear even the one sitting next to us!

Our waitress (Veronica) was awesome. Both her and the manager apologized and gave us complimentary dessert. Overall great dining experience, great ambience for reasonable price

    This place is amazing! We were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary and I wanted to take my husband out for a great steak dinner. He loves a great steak. I was in the process of making reservations for a restaurant in Beverly Hills when a colleague recommended 555 East. The entire meal, (from appetizer to dessert) was delicious and the staff there made us feel so welcomed and special. Valet parking made it easy to access the restaurant. There was a good crowd there and they have a nice bar. We had a 7:30pm reservation and were seated immediately. Love the ambiance of this place. Enjoyed the music being played from the piano. So glad that Long Beach has such a wonderful steak house! We will definitely be back!

I had been to the restaurant prior for a company dinner a few years ago and was impressed with the food and service. The restaurant was even better than I remembered. We were seated right away, the staff was great, and the food was outstanding. The New York steak was the best I ever had.

    Food was outstanding, our waiter Randolph (Randy) was excellent waiter! Overall experience with service, not impressed with few of your staff. Some of them not all were not nice, in particular, there was a women specially who probably was a manager type and felt she ignored our table when I made contact with her she looked at me with an unpleasant look! I'm Latina and had dinner with my two sisters to celebrate one if their birthdays. Felt a bit discriminated by her. Don't know her name and don't really care! I hope she stops doing this because I for one won't go there ever again and will not recommend it to any of my friends or relatives. Brenda

    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!

    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.

    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!
