A wonderful restaurant! This restaurant had everything, great food, excellent choices of cocktails and wines, terrific service, ambiance and parking. We were able to enjoy our meal without feeling rushed with quiet music in the background that did not interfere with conversation. There was ample room between tables to provide a comfort level that is not readily available in many restaurants.
Highly recommended. We will definitely dine here again.

We enjoyed the food very much. The waiter was friendly and efficient. The chef gave us a complimentary taste of squash soup. We were asked if we wanted more bread without asking. The wine was delicious. We will come back again.

When we walked in were were not properly greeted. The hostess (blond hair) did not engage us. They were going to seat us with out taking our coats until a gentleman came over to ask for our coats. BTW we were the first guests of the evening.
Our waiter was great! The staff that bring the food need better training on placing the food on the table. Maybe even explaining the cheeses and which order we should go in.
Throughout the evening plates just kind of dropped as if in a diner.
On our way out we approached the hostess for our coats and was just given a look and pointed in another direction.
The lack of hospitality and service really set an awful tone.
Food was prepared well (scallops a little overdone) presentation was nice - can do better on the ribeye.
Nice touch with the Chefs compliments with the butternut squash shooter it was delish!
Desserts were amazing!

We came for brunch on Sunday and were very pleased with the price fixed brunch sharing 4 appetizers and then each person having their own entree. Portions were more than ample and everything we ordered was delicious. The unlimited mimosas and bloody marys were a pleasant bonus. I would definitely go back.

Boulevard Five72 is a mid way point for me and five of my closest friends. We travel from as far north as Westchester NY to Princeton area to the shore. This place has an amazing brunch. They’ve changed it up since the last time we were there. It was buffet style then but they now offer a family style share for 2-12 people which includes four items for the table to share plus an individual entree AND bottomless drinks including mimosas, bellinis and bloody Mary’s all for $30 PP! The food was delicious and you can’t beat the price! We already look forward to going back again!!!

It was a great experience to have dinner at Boulevard Five72. It was a double date with my friends and we had a wonderful time. First, our server was attentive. The food was exquisite. We, ladies, ordered cocktails and also we all had a bottle of the Kenwood Merlot. The cod and bass were cooked perfectly and the lamb chop was a 10. The ambiance was so warm and romantic. We never expected to have such a great time and delicious dinner. Highly recommend to anyone.

The hostess was a total jerk. We came without a reservation, so we’re seated at bar. While there we logged on and were able to make reservations. When we came back to hostess and let her know our reservation was at that time, she told us to keep sitting at the bar. She made us wait an extra 30min before seating us.
THERE WERE PLENTY OF OPEN TABLES!
The limoncello with frozen raspberries and proscecco is an incredible drink. Food and service at the table were good though and server knew all the items.

A very typical NJ American restaurant, with very good food albeit a bit too complicated. But good. And a good selection of wines. One drawback: there really isn't a choice for vegetarians on the menu. I don't eat meat but I can deal with fish, but a real vegetarian person will have to ask for something to be made. Service is good and fast, our waiter was maybe a bit pushy, but all in all a good dining experience.
