We have changed up the menu since re-opening this fall [2023] . We are catering more now to our wonderful neighborhood, and neighbors. So be prepared for a totally different menu than the old "579". That vibe and style of the old "579" can still be experienced at our sister restaurant, Chardonnay in Seekonk, just 12 minutes down the road.
Thank you,
Al Castiglioni

    This is the second time we were disappointed with the steak. My husband ordered med rare and it was well done. It was going to take 10 minutes to cook another steak. The waiter removed the meal from the check The restaurant food and service is very different from pre-covid

    When we arrived the hostess took us to a booth. On our reservation we had requested not to be seated at a booth. We mentioned this to the hostess and she told us that we were incorrect. She said with absolute certainty that the only request that we had made was to be seated in the main dining room. We looked at our reservation and right there in the notes was our request not to be seated in a booth. I ordered the steak tips which were the special for the day. Our waitress said that they were sirloin cut into tips. They were tough and each bite was gristly. I was very disappointed. The restaurant is a good size and noise carries within it. One table in particular was incredibly loud...too loud. We were so excited about eating at 579 Benefit since it reopened. Normally we get their fish and chips (which are good) for takeout. We will just continue to do that.

    Made a reservation for Valentines Day, requested dining area opposed to the bar section. They only had tables available in the bar area when I showed up. Our waitress was overwhelmed and dealing with multiple tables, her stress was very noticeable. We asked for an appetizer, shortly after placed order for entrees. The appetizer never showed up, the entrees came out not long after we ordered them. The waitress never came back to address the appetizer or even to see if we were enjoying the food. Had to find her to request the check. Paid with cash, but she didn’t have enough change ($40) to be able to settle up. Had to wait for a manager to bring her change, another 10 minutes waiting to pay and leave. Second time going here and I’d never go again. Similar disappointed experience the first time. I wanted to give them a second shot, but I regret that I did.

    Last night’s dinner was very good. The buffalo cauliflower was delicious. The meals were also good. The only downside was the table. We were seated in the bar area at a very tiny table. It felt very crowded. There were other tables available. When we return, I’ll ask for a different table. Our server, Ashlie, was excellent.

    I hadn't been to 579 since they recently reopened and was pleasantly surprised that it was as good as it always was. The food was excellent and the service was great. We were there quite early on a cold Sunday night and while the lounge and bar were very busy. The expansive dining room was empty, which worries me about the long term prospects. I only hope that it was a slow night because of the day and time we chose. Ill be back for sure!

    Calamari could’ve been cooked better and portion was small for the price. Entrees took longer to come out than anticipated , considering how few of people were there. It felt like heat wasn’t working to well. Ashley was great !

    This has been a "go to" place for our family since they first opened, especially Christmas Eve. Really missed it during the Covid shutdown. Went there just after they reopened post-shutdown a couple of months ago; was as good as we remembered. This Christmas Eve, huge disappointment (we had reservations for 7:30, not ridiculously late, or so we thought). Everything that I ordered the waitperson came back and said "sorry, out of that". Finally after the third try I ordered the salmon; didn't come back so I figured I hit it right that time. The three others in our party made out ok and got their food as ordered, although not without some delay with drinks and appetizer (Gen. Tso's Cauliflower, another family favorite). Food quality? Worst I have ever had there and maybe any where else. The salmon looked, felt , and tasted like it had been under the warming oven lamp about 20 minutes too long; couldn't barely stab it with a fork. The Gen. Tso's was WAY overdone; cauliflower was mushy as heck and the sauce practically blackened or burned. I also ordered a house salad. As described, it was supposed to have lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage, and croutons. Came out late (delivered by someone other than our waitperson?) as a bowl of chopped lettuce, carrot shreds and a few cucumber pieces. Atmosphere? It was quieter than previous Christmas Eves, but there were a few other parties. What was a turnoff was the end-of-shift cleaning crew already making the rounds and we hadn't even been served yet. Spray bottles and rolls of paper towels left on the tables. Really made us feel like the leftover crowd. Service? Fair; (see late items above). Our waitperson tried but seemed like a last minute draftee. In the end, if you're going to take reservations for Christmas Eve, supposedly a special holiday time of year, then at least make your customers NOT feel like the leftover crowd, have what's on the menu actually available, and at least have your A- team on board.

    Date night was disappointing at 579. Food was not the same as in our past amazing experiences. This was our 1st visit since it's reopened. No bread & oil.....unless you ask and still no oil (2 rolls served w/butter). My husband had fettuccine & white clam sauce which he said was VERY salty. I had the glazed meatloaf that I usually love, but, no comparison! I only ate 1/4 of the meatloaf. Potatoes & glaze were good. Winter sangria was weak & I normally don't drink. Here's the kicker.....lava cake arrived ICE COLD. It was a lonely tiny little cupcake that tasted like a dry devil dog. Served with a few squirts of whipped cream, no ice cream. Maybe it was just a bad night in the kitchen? We will give one more chance as we really wanted to love, we always did in the past.

    The nachos with BBQ chicken are the best around. The meatloaf and short ribs were very good and are a great value . The service was excellent. I also purchased a gift card with another bonus card for future visits. 579 is definitely worth being on my list of restaurants to visit on a regular basis. Joe H

    Ordered the “special” and it was far from special (was supposed to have salmon with penne and there was only a trace of salmon). Portions were uneven (two orders of the same meal and one looked like a kids meal) and the mashed potatoes were served cold ( we decided not to say anything). They put a surcharge on the credit card!!!! And there was something weird with paying the bill where we had to indicate separately what the servers tip was!! 😳 Likely won’t return.

    Had a reservation for 7:00 On Friday night , came in the restaurant was not full but had to still wait to be sat. There was 3 of us 2 adults and one highchair for my daughter . We were sat in the corner without a drink menu and without a children's menu for my daughter . Multiple servers were in the dining room cleaning their tables and doing side work. All of them saw us, I know because I made eye contact with all of them but not one of them came over to help us. After 15-20 minutes of not even being greeted or given water we started to pack up to leave. Still no waitress said a word to us. So at 730 we walked out of the restaurant still very hungry and thirsty. The front staff was informed of our issue on the way out and the only response given was "you're kidding me" ... Cannot comment on the food since we were not given the chance to try it . Will not return , VERY disappointed .
