Diner Reviews
  • "Food was prepared excellently; creative, elegant desserts. Very good wait service. I thought entree portion sizes were very modest, like French restaurants do."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Friday night they have a lobster tasting menu...every course was delicious!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "A marvelous dining experience. We first had a lovely cocktail at the bar, then moved to our table. Our server was friendly and attentive, without becoming overbearing. Our choice of steamed clams and sea scallops as appetizers were both prepared perfectly, and scrumptious. The lamb shank entree, and escarole were both terrifically prepared, and delicious. I will definitely come back."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "The food was exceptionally good and prepared and presented with flair. The ambiance as well as the servers were pleasant. As this was our first time we were a little confused by the brunch menu, however our server very patiently explained it to us. I have already recommended this restaurant to five of my friends whom I know enjoy good food at a reasonable price.The pre fixe brunch cost is a steal for the amount and quality of food. The beingnets made me feel as though I was once again in New Orleans and the pancakes with ricotta filling were sumptuous. I live in Toms River but will certainly travel to Kenilworth again."

  • "Party of 5. We all enjoyed the food. The service was also very nice. The only thing we wished was different was the length of time between our appetizers and our main entries. The downtime made for a pretty long lunch. >1.5 hours"

  • "This was my first time at Boulevard Five72 and I was very impressed. My fiance and I did the family style brunch and loved everything that we ate. Plus you can't ask for anything better than unlimited mimosas/bellinis/bloody marys. On top of that, we loved our waitress and serving staff. They were all attentive, yet not intrusive. Every time we finished a plate or drink, there was always someone there to clean or ask if we wanted more to drink. The atmosphere was slightly louder than I prefer, but nothing overwhelming. Overall we were very impressed with the restaurant. I try to write reviews for places that impressed me and I would definitely recommend Boulevard Five72 for dining."

  • "From the moment we walked in the door, my husband and I were greeted by the hostess and promptly seated. Numerous servers attended our every need. I had the Tasting Menu - little neck clam appetizer was enhanced with chorizo and lemon gnocchi, the main course - pistachio lamb chops were delicious and the dessert was sweet and light. My husband had the french onion soup and the branzino fish special. Everything was beautifully plated and the sauces all had unique flavors. Our dining experience was one of the best I have had in New Jersey."

  • "We been to Boulevard 572 many times but this was our first time for brunch. Let me tell you everyone should try this amazing deal. Unlimited belinis, mimosas, and blood marrys. The best cup of coffee i ever had. The food is outstanding, from the french toast to the perfect poached eggs. And our server Dan was the best my drinks were never empty and he knew what was best in the menu. Thank your Boulevard 572 for a great time"

Agnolotti, seafood risotto....wow is all I have to say. Seriously can not wait to go back anddd bring friends. So perfect and delicious! Go and find out yourself."

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We have enjoyed so many great meals here--and it is so close to home. The atmosphere is sophisticated and lovely--a great place for that special meal. We went here for Valentines Day (again) because they don't crowd in as many diners as they possibly can and they offer the regular menu as well as a special menu--it's your choice. The servers make you feel pampered as soon as you sit down. There are many excellent choices on the menu in all price ranges. The wine list is varied and has many wonderful wines by the glass, half bottle and bottle-and prices won't break the bank. In addition, Boulevard Five72 has many special events including Lobster Fridays, Bistro Tuesdays (in the summer), and wine dinners."

  • "My special someone and myself annually enjoy a romantic Valentine's Day at a great local restaurants. This was our first Valentine's at Boulevard 572 and were we pleasantly surprised. Our table was waiting for us (we had OT reservation. Ambience was very plesant and seats were comfortable. But the food! From the outstanding avocado crab cannolli appertizer to the cauliflower soup, dinner and dessert all wonderful! Provided friendly. courteous service. This may be worth a repeat visit before next Valentine's Day!!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Loud dining room, but the food is always solid. Ambience lends itself more toward group dining as the acoustics in the dining room don't allow for a quiet romantic meal. But still worth the trip if you don't mind spending the money. In addition to the pricey menu, they'll make sure they sit you in the bar for 15 minutes while they "get your table ready" in the hopes you'll buy $13 martinis which would be worth it if you were in a trendy NYC restaurant where you'd be served by a mixologist. Here, just a bartender with an attitude."

  • "WE ENJOYED OUR DINNER SO MUCH. THE PORTERHOUSE FOR 2 WAS VERY GOOD, IT WAS OUR SECOND TIME ORDERING THAT DISH. THE SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD AND WE WERE ONLY SORRY THAT OUR EVENING HAD TO END."

  • "My husband's birthday is January 4 so even though it was an extremely cold evening -- the celebration had to go on! The restaurant dining room had a warm glow from both the table candles and the soft room lighting. We each found several items on the menu to order but both chose the shrimp corn chowder for our appetizer which was delicious and warming. For main courses, I had the salmon which even though prepared medium rare had a delicious crisply, seared top and my husband immensely enjoyed his cavetelli with short ribs. The service was excellent. We will be back!"

  • "Have dined here multiple times over the past 3 years, usually for special occasions, and the food and service have been consistently outstanding. Five of us dined on Xmas eve, the entree choices were across the specturm: venison, salmon, short ribs, seafood medley and lamb, and everyone raved. Only one criticism: when the main dining area is full it gets pretty noisy and it can be difficult to hear conversation across the table. But the food is fabulous, highly recommend, and we will be going back."

  • "My husband and I came here for a date night (we don't get out very often because we have a toddler at home). The service was just outstanding-I would give more than 5 stars if it were an option. We had a wonderful intimate table in the corner as I requested and our server was polite and attentive without constantly badgering us to check on us which we appreciated! The food was of very high quality. I will definitely be returning. In my opinion, this is what a dining out experience should be!"
