    We had a delicious dinner here on Saturday night. The staff is very professional; service was excellent. The food is always good but I wish there were a few dishes not quite so "rich" in sauces and garnishes. We had dinner at 6:30. When we left at 8:30, it was quite noisy.

    BoulevardFive 72 is an excellent restaurant. It is not what you would expect in such a modest locale. Food was excellently prepared and you know you are in for an excellent meal experience when you walk in the door. We had strip steaks which were very delicious and presented elegantly. The desserts were very satisfying also. One caveat---be prepared to spend.

The food is amazing, the service is excellent and the ambiance is wonderful for either a romantic evening with your significant other or a night out with friends and family. We give it 5 stars and highly recommend it!

    My wife and I went for our 5 year anniversary, we had our engagement party there and returned for the food. - They had a large party occupying half of the restaurant backing up the reservations. - Lobby was nice and had fast, friendly drink service. - We were seated 15-20 minutes late w/o apology and placed alone in the cleaned-up party room apart from the rest of the restaurant... poor dining experience - They had a party going on upstairs with DJ and couldn't converse at the table due to noise. - Waiter and wait staff were friendly but encouraged us to order WAY too much food... the charged us split portion costs as well. I felt "food-gauged." - Food was exquisite. - Appreciated the anniversary wish, although incredibly subtle.

    I had been to Boulevard 572 for their Mother's Day brunch, a big buffet affair. Their regular Sunday brunch is sit-down and ordered off a menu. the prix fixe at $25 per person is quite a deal...sumptious appetizers and a main dish...unlimited mimosa's or bloody Mary's, GRAT coffee! The best part is there was no rushing us. Wonderful place, great food, great service....Boulevard Five 72 is a keeper! If you haven't been there you don't know what you're missing.

    I've eaten here multiple times and have always had stellar food. The Friday night prix-fixe is a deal not to be missed. We had a 4 course lobster themed dinner for $48 that was delicious. The conversation after dinner was all about the food. I cannot fathom how this place isn't completely packed every night of the week. This could be the best restaurant within a 10 mile radius. Absolutely loved our meal!

    Everything was exceptional from the crab cake appetizer to the venison and seafood risotto entrees. Service was a bit slow due to the high volume of diners, but management provided us with some wine on the house which was much appreciated. It can be a bit noisy, but the food makes it all worthwhile.

    I have been to Blvd 572 a number of times. The food and service consistently excel and justify the moderately high price. At this visit I started with fresh and well prepared diver scallops that tasted delicious. For my entree I had salmon which was recommended as medium rare (which is my preference). It was presented as medium, but was still very moist and tasted great so I kept it. My wife had sorbet which I tasted and was excellent as well. Excellent service and good company (bring your own) mad it a very enjoyable dining experience.

    Dined on 10/4/2013
    This was our 2nd visit, and what a find this place is! We skipped the Friday night lobster tasing menu and ordered instead off the menu. We started with calamari (from the bar menu) to share, then had salads (the Granny Smith Apple and endive was our favorite) and entrees (cavatelli and pulled short ribs, rich almost beyond belief, and the fish special which was pan sauteed striped bass over asparagus). We ended with their cheese course, which is ample and well-selected, though it would be presented more thoughtfuly and attractively. Overall, the food was terrific: fresh, well prepared and delicious. The wine list is very nice, and not too outrageously priced, and the bar is full and well-stocked. We will definitely be back!

    Maybe I went on an off night. The food was good, but it was a bit loud and I felt like I had to yell to speak with the other people in my party. However, I was unhappy with the service. I paid with cash. The waiter did not ask whether I wanted change and he basically kept the change. I guess he assumed he was worth a 25% tip. I disagree.

    As a first time diner, I was very impressed with the food and the presentation. The crab cake appetizer and the striped bass entree were excellent, and the lamb chops entree couldn't have been prepared better. The waiter even suggested an inexpensive Argentinians Malbec which was delicious. We will definitely return to this restaurant.

    This was our third trip to this lovely restaurant in about 8 weeks - yes, we like it THAT much. The servers are personable, informed and expert, and the food is to die for. Some of the best dishes are the risottos. The menu has an a la carte side and a taqsting side. Fortunately you can order entrees off either side of the menu. Don't miss the pistachio crusted lamb if it is offered.. The lamb was the most succulent I've ever had. My culinarily-exacting husband had the rib eye steak all three times we have been there, raving about it every time. The side of mushroom risotto was a perfect accompaniment. The staff are very flexible about substitutions and really go out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful meal. We LOVE this place!

    This restaurant has exceeded all my expectations. The food is cooked to perfection. We have been here a couple of times specifically for Monday night dinners and Sunday brunches and they have never failed us. They have seasonal great tasting food and a small menu of items to choose from which personally I believe is a great thing. You will never see specials here which again to me is an indication of food that is going bad but I could be wrong. :D Our waitress was excellent and always asked us if we wanted a refill on our unlimited mimosa's for brunch. Brunch is worth it because you can order 4 appetizers (choice 7 or 8 items). + a main entree and a mini plate of sample desserts at finish with a cup of coffee. Brunch is Complete! Thank you.
