Excellent service and food. Dining area was freezing. Not much for ambiance.

The duck breast was cooked to perfection! The Salmon risotto was delicious garnished with mushrooms in a creamy sauce. Looking forward to dining back.

Four of us came for Sunday brunch the day after Christmas. I love the prize fixe menu for brunch. Food was excellent, Bloody Mary and Bellini were delicious. Only very minor complaint was the music. We sat in the wine cellar room which is lovely, but the Muzak was too loud and not appropriate for Sunday brunch. Disco and 80s? How about trying smooth jazz or other instrumental? They did turn it down when we asked.

This place never disappoints! The food last night was so incredible that my husband wanted to stand up and just start clapping! The lamb and duck were cooked to perfection. The goat cheese mashed potatoes were such a treat. Can’t wait to go back! Oh, and the habanero margaritas….. those are a must!!!!

The meals were excellent and the service very good. My complaint is the total disregard of the present Covid resurgence with the very contagious omnicron variant. Tables were very close together, waiter and staff were unmasked no ventilation I could detect. No one checking Covid vaccine nor any requirements for such. Was told that New Jersey doesn’t require it. That may be so, but being responsible means making sure people are safe.

Food and service are always good and there are nice liquor and wine selections.

The food portions are reasonably sized without being overwhelming.

The food variety is good and there is something to offer for everyone.

Parking can be a bit of a hassle.

Went with my family for a birthday dinner. The food was excellent, as usual. However, they’re suffering from the staffing shortages we see everywhere. Our server was great, but just had too much to do. The lighting in the dining room felt harsher than I remembered - not sure if something’s changed. Five72 remains a favorite and I’m sure they’ll be able to work through this moment.

As always, the food was outstanding, and our server, David, was wonderful, professional, friendly, and very attentive. He, as well as the chef, were very accommodating to our specific needs. We can’t wait to come back! It is always a gastronomic delight. The entire staff is fantastic!

This was my second visit for brunch and it was even better this time. The prix fixe menu was fantastic, everything looked and tasted delicious. The service was amazing as were the Bellinis! My friends and I have decided to make this our official brunch spot! We will definitely be back.

Service Staff needs work. In this day and age of Covid, I would not be surprised if the staff is new and not fully trained. Bus boy put butter dish down on my companion's menu while he was reading it, another was asked for mayo for the fries and disappeared, only to walk by and be asked again (he forgot). Main waiter put chiller bucket at the far corner of table so neither of us could reach it to pour drink. He appeared sporadically so we finally put liquid on the table so we could pour our own. He then disappeared for nearly 20 minutes as we were trying to inquire about dessert. Another waiter told us he left for dinner. Then we saw him serving tables in another room. Hostess/Owner finally was flagged and she graciously resolved issue.

Food was pricy but good. Ambience isn’t what I would expect from a higher price restaurant. The interior is average at best and the music was some random radio station. It felt like a was being served higher end food in a diner.

I went to eat here yesterday with one of my best friends and as soon as we were seated, we were met with one the the funniest waiters. I’m sorry I don't remember his name but he had a great personality, was attentive, and had my bestie and I chuckling every time. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS. Between the scallops, pulled short rib, and crab meat cannelloni, we were so impressed. Great value for the price.

Celebrating my wife’s birthday and we wanted to support the local restaurants. What a pleasant surprise to have a gem of a restaurant so close to our area. The restaurant decor was cozy and the menu items was plenty enough to satisfy a vegan or carnivore🙂 BUT I always say it what’s in the inside the counts. The staff was welcoming and the service was friendly - one of the reasons we would patronize Boulevard five 72 in Kenilworth 🤙

We were seated in the “wine room”, as the table was a bit more comfortable for my husband, all due to the extra consideration given to us by the attentive hostess. We were served and “cared for” by David H. who, without question, had to be one of the most adept and knowledgeable waiters we have ever enjoyed being served by!

This is not our first time dining here…it is definitely a fine restaurant, but tonight’s dinner was exceptional!

After many months hiding out at home since the pandemic, we dressed up for a night out at a fine dining restaurant. The waiter was knowledgeable and provided great service. We enjoyed drinks, appetizers, entree and desert. With great food, great service and a moderate ambience, I definitely recommend it.

Excellent all around. Waiter was knowledgeable and recommendations were great. we largely stuck with the seafood and it was terrific, particularly the seafood risotto which was absolutely perfect. Cocktails were also great, particuarly the Jersey Peach and Boulevard Kiss, and we also enjoyed dessert.

Firstly, though I reside 30 miles from 572, it is my favorite restaurant in the State. The food is always great. However, the service has slipped for obvious reasons so the dining experience wasn't quite the same. My wife ate their two weeks earlier and had a wonderful lunch but for the service.
