The quality and taste of the food were outstanding. The service was professional, friendly, and accommodating. The bar makes the best martinis and prepared a wonderful cosmo. Something to remember is that there is no corkage fee for the first 12 bottles.

We had one crab cake, Chilean sea-bass,filet mignonette along with a side of mashed potatoes and fantastic spinach.

I booked through open table for a 9 pm slot and was sat down about 15 mins later, the waiter was courteous, noteworthy and well educated on the menu and kept us hydrated at all times.

Well worth coming back again !

First time back since COVID-19 started. It was as great as always. The food was excellent 90 days aged bone in New York with all the trimmings. But most of all the service is why we go there besides the food. Lisa is Always our waitress and delivers the best service you can ask. Hardly can wait to be back again

This was my first time eating at 555. I am not sure if it’s because of the pandemic that I felt the service was rushed. I know the reservation was for 90 minutes but other restaurants have been very accommodating. I would have liked to have had another drink but my check was given to me at the exact 90 minute mark. There were many available tables around me. If I laid down $225.00 for dinner for 1 person I felt that I could have been accorded a little more time to enjoy my dinner night out.

Brought my Girlfriend here for her Pre-Birthday dinner. The Steaks were amazing! The Rack of Lamb is to die for! Our waiter Ramon made it a great experience here for our first time there. We will be coming for our next special occasion and we hope to see Ramon there again!

Researched a nice steak house to take my mom for Mother's Day and this place did not disappoint! The service was outstanding. We were sat right at our reservation time. No pressure to get expensive wine or steaks if you don't want. They are very welcoming. The calamari was yummy! Crunchy, comes with lots of lemon and two dipping sauces!
All our steaks were delicious and cooked perfectly! The server was very attentive and I never felt like I didn't have what I wanted. It was a nice experience. They go through all the different cuts of steaks with you. I would 100% recommend and will come back! The leftovers were also amazing! Cooked our med-rare steaks in the cast iron for 1.5 mins on each side, was perfect and airfried the leftover baked potato, so crunchy.

Waitress was great. Cooks made a few mistakes. The management fixed the issues that the cooks messed up. We got charged full price for some Items that should have been discounted because the cooks messed up. Whatever. $470.00 Bill for two adults and one child. I’d expect everything perfect or discount the screw ups.

Mother's Day was a delight. The Prime sirloin was out of this world moist, tender, juicy, the spinach w/garlic melted in tour mouth, the baked potato was perfect and came with the works, and the heavenly wedge salad was crunchy and flavorful with sweet tomatoes and pieces of thick sliced bacon. I mixed the house balsamic with a honey mustard dressing which added a burst of tart sweet flavor. Everything is delicious! 😋 One member of our party took almost an hour to arrive, and our waiter Gilberto was knowledgeable, patient, attentive, and a pleasure to talk to! Thank you Gilberto and the 555 for another great memory! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Food was awesome except my calamari was burnt and salty. Other than that my food was good, ambiance was good and my waitress was nice and pleasant. I have eaten there 3 times. Everytime I want a steak it will always be 555.

The hostess upon entering the restaurant was rude. We asked to be seated inside and she proceeded to seat us outside. When I reminded her that we needed to be seated inside we were placed in the wine room with other African-American families and they were no other African-American families in the main dining room. This was blatant discrimination! My husband and I are regular customers and we have never been treated the way that we were on Mother’s Day my special day along with my 87 year old mother out of town guest! I complained to the general manager after I was fed up and even my 24-year-old daughter pointed out that we were being discriminated against sitting in an area with other African-Americans and no one else in the other parts of the restaurant were black! I spoke to the general manager and he apologize we had already eaten so it was too late and offered for us to return to dine with him complements of 555. This is a very nice gesture however senior management needs to look into the protocol and how they seat customers in the future. This would not be received well in the public eye. We are all equal and inclusive and should be treated as such! The experience was extremely disappointing. Our waitress was awesome, the food was OK but the ambience and where we were seating was unacceptable!!

This place is one of my favorite steak houses when in Long Beach. It has a traditional British pub like feel with an amazing collection of spirits, wines, and drinks and caters to the meat eater as well as their pescatarian friends. I highly recommend 555.

We went to celebrate Mother’s Day on the Saturday prior. We had the best table, best wait staff (our server was especially wonderful). The food - oh. my. gosh. Top notch delicious. The one thing I have to note is the music was way off and too loud. It did not match the lovely atmosphere. The music prior (Frank Sinatra and the classic crooners) is by far more pleasing and fitting. The music playing was more distracting than enjoyable. That said, the music would not keep us from returning. We will definitely be back. Thank you 555!
