Diner Reviews
  • "We went for the Friday Lobster Night & enjoyed each course. Dan (server) was attentive. We had 5:30 dinner, before crowds, allowing for personalized service. Choices in the lobster dinner and each was good, enough variety. Wine list good, variety of price ranges and options. The first course of lobster and avocado salad tasty,fresh. Nice sauce drizzled under it. I had the Maine Lobster Agnolotti with the chanterelle mushrooms, excellent. I opted for the filet mignon and lobster 'scampi". Filet was good size portion, tender, nicely cooked. Asparagus, potato patty. Guest had the lobster risotto enjoyed it. Guest had peach dessert option,caramel popcorn & gelato; I had the chocolate cherry bombe with the pistachio ice cream. Delicious."

  • "My sister and I had a fabulous dining experience. I chose the Prix Fixe with wine and everything was just perfect. Basically, this is a class restaurant and although possibly out of some folks' price range, well worth the upper end cost."

  • "We found this restaurant just this past year and we have since had three birthday celebrations there. The food is outstanding. The last time we were there I actually sought out the chef to compliment him. I have never done that before. This past Sunday, we went there for brunch. AMAZING!!! The place is gorgeous, too. Pricey but really worth it. Definitely my new favorite restaurant."

  • "First time dining here, celebrating my birthday with my girlfriend and we had a wonderful experience. Started with cocktails at the bar, tried the cheese plate, crab cakes, filet dish, ribeye dish, and finished with cheesecake and creme brûlée. Fantastic selections on the wine list (we went with burgundy). Service was in sync and our waiter was professional and not overbearing. "

  • "We were there for the Mother's Day Buffet. We have always disliked going out on Mother's Day because restaurants are crowded, noisy and they throw the food at you. We were so thrilled with our choice to go to Boulevard 572 this year. They could not have been more accommodating and we were not rushed. The buffet was lovely with an array of interesting food. We have been here many times but never for brunch. The food never disappoints and the staff really knows how to please the customers. Thank you Boulevard Five72. Can't wait to return."

  • "I went here for Mother's Day brunch and treated my family, so I was disappointed when the bill came. The food was mediocre, really nothing special. For the cost, I was expecting much more. The sausage was very strange; somewhere between pork sausage and hamburger. Our waiter was very nice and attentive though."

  • "Varied menu which should provide several selections for each person. Good wine list with a reasonable number of choices that are not overly expensive. Service and food both superb. Quiet enough for conversation, but enough activity so,that you don't feel as if you in a cloister."

  • "We love Boulevard Five72. We always start with a cocktail in the bar - friendly service, and great drinks in a cozy area, the perfect spot to meet friends. We were there on a Friday and several of us enjoyed the lobster menu - standouts were the lobster and avocado salad, the lobster angiolotti and the filet with lobster, but everything was delicious. Attentive service and a nice wine list add to a great experience. We highly recommend it. "

  • "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 4/1/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
