    We had not been there in a long time. We chose this restaurant because it is perfect for a business meeting with wonderful ambiance and service . Rob took care of us. Wonderful food. I have been there many times over the years but not recently since Covid. Top Gun on all counts.

    We enjoyed the restaurant very much. They were very accommodating. We were seated by an extremely loud patron and they moved us quickly with no hesitation. It was my husbands birthday and they made it very special. He was unhappy with his steak and they made it right on our bill. I can’t say enough about the waitstaff. Our server Melissa was attentive and accommodating. Considering it being a very busy night because of a Bob Dylan concert the restaurant ran like a well oiled machine. Will definitely be returning.

    Appears we may have experienced delays due to a computer malfunction. Ordered filet mignon (second time at 555) and each time there was a bit of tough unchewable gristle or tendon in them. Otherwise, the steak was nicely cooked and seasoned.

    Many operational problems with his establishment. Food took an hour to be prepared, and it was cold. The Resturant has tables in every empty space imaginable in the room, so will NOT have an intimate dining experience at all. Probably will never be back here again.

    Just finished Father's Day lunch and it's a complete disappointment in comparison to the Mother's Day lunch. 12:30pm sit down and we got our cold food at 1:20. This is with the restaurant not busy and with less than normal amount of customers. My steak a medium rare became a medium well. My moms filet became a well done, her baked potato was cold. My fathers pasta was dried out. These all point to food being sitting in the kitchen. This is unacceptable and such a far departure from my initial experience here. Server tried telling me it was because my steak was grass fed which was somewhat insulting considering the type of steaks I've had all over the world. Showed the guy my steak regardless of type was medium well and not the medium rare I ordered. Afterwards, radio silence from the server and restaurant and I paid my bill and got my disappointed parents and left. This night and day treatment and lack of consistency means you can't be guaranteed your experience with loved ones nor rely on this place to deliver especially with special occasions like Father's Day. I was so hopeful that I could keep this place as my go to South Bay steak house. I guess it's back to the drawing board.

After 2+ years of COVID, thanks for keeping your restaurant so top drawer! It was a thoroughly memorable and delicious dining experience. Thanks to everyone at the 555!

    In town for a conference. For the cost the best 555 is going to get is a 3/5. Dirty martini = horrible. Olives were gross and filled with hard processed blue cheese. 🤮 Wedge = horrible. It was 1/2 a head of lettuce covered in fatty mushy bacon + what was super weird was that it was covered in cottage cheese…. 🤮 🤮 16 oz Ribeye = this was the only redeeming part of the meal and what made this meal a 2 star rather than a 1 star

    I have been coming to the 555 since it opened. NEVER have I had such a bad experience. The rooms were overly crowded; tables were added leaving limited room for the waiters to get around and the noise level was out of control; you could hardly hear yourself talk. Th assistant waiter staff were running into each other. For as expensive as the restaurant is, one would expect more and it was not worth the price. Unless there is a change, we will not be back. I made our reservation long in advance; our waiter was off and they were not able to seat us where we requested. What has happened to the 555? --Richard (Dick) Gaylord

    Reservation made for 7:45. Arrived at 7:35. Stood outside with view of three unoccupied tables until 8pm at which point I protested or inquired about the reservation and was told I would be seated “shortly”. At 8:10 we were seated at one of the two remaining tables in view. Of course this table was directly under a speaker making conversation difficult. If fact we had to rearrange seats so as to hear each other. Fortunately the delightful service and food (sea bass and ribeye) made the overall experience worthwhile. This of course was in spite of the reservation, seating process and up front customer service.

    We always head to 555 when in town and it’s always great! Good bar with refreshing drinks. The steaks, salads, and appetizers like calamari and oysters are wonderful. The linguini and clam sauce was good and the chocolate soufflé was delicious. Our server did a great job too and the manager came over to check in which was nice.
