Boulevard Five72 Ratings and Reviews
Decent food, nice service, drab ambience, reasonable value overall but we left thinking it could and should be better in several respects. Appetizer salad was disappointing, main course fish dishes were tasty but lacked sophistication. Decor needs a refresh too. But I would give it another chance-- and it's a big space so you should be able to get a reservation when you want.
It's unfortunate that Lou is no longer at the bar. He was a great friendly face who always remembered your drink. Dan was a good bartender and very pleasant. The unfortunate part of the night was when we moved from the bar to be seated for dinner. Our waiter seemed quite inexperienced and in this restaurants price range, you expect MUCH better than the waiter they had on staff. We had to ask multiple times before he would return with an answer to questions or request for wine pricing, etc. The food is typically very good here but it was just mediocre this time. I'm not sure if the service just left such a bAd taste in my mouth that it made me sour on the food or if the restaurant is totally sliding downhill. Sad.
Food was good - since the last time I went, I became vegan - very limited choices but my salad was delicious and the lentil/vegetable main was tasty. My wife's lobster dishes were tasty and elegantly prepared.
Service was subpar, especially for a $100+ meal for two. The bread that was first given was three TINY pieces - subsequently asked for more bread on several occasions...the last time it felt like the bread was thrown on the table, no eye contact with the server. Asked for one whole lemon, clearly explaining for two lemon halves....received wedges.
Been here many times! Scott the owner chef and Josh the manager do it right EVERY TIME! A must if you like great food, outstanding wine list and excellent service that is paced and professional. One of Union County's top 5 restaurants. Go for the soft shell crabs in a few weeks. Also they have a private wine room for small groups or a special romantic occasion!!
Went today for their special Easter Brunch. We were going to the theater in a nearby town and chose this restaurant strictly from Open Table reviews, as it is about 90 miles from our home. The restaurant itself was a treat, with both street and valet parking available. The special brunch included a wide selection of foods, including raw oysters and clams, steamship of beef, omelet bar made to order, eggs benedict on both English muffins and delicious salmon cakes. The only reason we gave it four stars -- we had to ask for coffee refills. Would definitely go back next time we're in the area.
My husband and I asked for several special requests and boulevard Five72 was more than accommodating. We saw raw oysters as part of another appetizer and asked for a half dozen raw oysters without the other items. The oysters came at their own price with all the fixings. My husband had asked for his ribeye to be encrusted with blue cheese which they did with no problem. We also got a sample soup from the kitchen which was a pleasant surprise. Definitely coming back here for another special occasion.
BoulevardFive72 is excellent for Sunday brunch. Portions are varied and generous, well-prepared and thought-out. The service is very good and the ambiance is nice. The restaurant was very crowded so the noise level was high. My third visit and as usual, a good one. Highly recommended.
The food never disappoints at Boulevard Five72, with some real standouts. Steaks are superb, the parmesan risotto fantastic, lots of great seafood selections, and some real gems amongst the appetizers. And the service is first rate. Altogether a lovely experience every time.
The restaurant is excellent but this must have been an off night. My wife and I ordered 2 appetizer salads which were excellent. My daughter ordered the Grilled Baby Octopus & Shrimp Salad and she only ate a little, the octopus was overcooked and chewy. The chef agreed and that item was taken off the bill. My wife ordered the Cavatelli & Pulled Braised Short Ribs and I ordered the Rigatoni and Lamb Shank. Both dishes were tasty but the pasta was most of the dish and the meat was minimal. My daughter had the Roasted Long Island Duck Breast and found it to be excellent. For dessert we ordered the Banana Bombe and found that the Banana flavor of the dish was faint and should have been more. The service and ambiance are excellent.
It was a quiet Sunday dinner and we were introduced to the tapas like specials at B572. Our selections for appetizers were crab cakes, Caesar salad x 2 and seafood salad. all choices were quite nice and flavorful. My entree choice was roasted lamb shank with root vegetables. It was a great selection as the meat was tender and savory. The veggies were cooked to perfection, a little al dente, as I prefer them. Our other choice was a bolognese sauce over slaps of pasta, which was rich and flavorful. Dinner was relaxed and enjoyable, our server was friendly and informative regarding our food choices. The only thing that I think could be improved is the bread. I prefer a crusty bread rather than the soft focaccia style bread they offer. We look forward to trying other options on the menu.
We waited 40 minutes for our table, (although we had a reservation) staff was overwhelmed, slow at getting drinks replenished and rude. It took 20 minutes to get someone's attention to place a food order....one member of my table had to beg for toast which they didn't want to give her because she was starving and could not drink on an empty stomach...not a pleasant experience
Got together with some friends for Sunday Brunch. Very good food, plenty of choices, nice environment, friendly staff, free valet parking. Their brunch is a cut above most in the variety of menu options and quality. Would highly recommend for Sunday Brunch.
Valentine's Day is not a day I enjoy eating at a restaurant as they always have a special menu. Boulevard Five72 gave us a choice of ordering off the regular menu. The Lamb Chops are always my favorite and they did not disappoint. When I couldn't decide on a wine, I was given a sample of two recommended and was able to make my choice.
