“Excellent on all counts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Enjoyed a Friday night dinner starting at the bar with drinks and oysters. Steak was melt in your mouth, the sides are yummy and generous, nice wine list and live music round out the experience. The service is excellent and I felt like I was at a true East coast steak house. Thank you for making me feel at home!

“Great Food and Ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Delicious steaks and always great service! This restaurant has been consistently excellent for several years. I used to live in the area and can say that they have not disappointed in 20 years! Great filet served rare and perfect, get it with the mushrooms, so good! Large wine selection and very informative servers. Good for families, better for adults on dates. Nice upscale little gem, tucked away in Long Beach.

“Great steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

I dined here recently with a group of clients and all were very impressed with the quality of the steaks they ordered. Mine was better with the side of sautéed mushrooms and onions which arrived late to the table. We were happy with the wine and cocktails we ordered. The oysters were superb, as was the tomato and burrata salad. The chocolate souffle is well worth ordering for the table to share, even if no one wants to eat a whole one alone. We had one person in our group who did not eat red meat, and was very happy with the fish selection she ordered. The service was great, and no one in our group left disappointed.

“Great Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I make it a point to go to 555 every time I travel to Long Beach for the INDYCAR event. Great food, great service and great atmosphere. I have no complaints. I've been there many times and have never had any issues at all. I highly recommend checking it out.

“Don't Bother”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We dined at 555 during the Long Beach Grand Prix, an event we attend yearly. The atmosphere was somewhat noisy but overall candlelit and good ambience. The server was unable to discuss the Bordeaux wine we chose and appeared to make something up about tannins. She did not bring bread despite a reminder. Five minutes into our salad our entree wa served and we were told to leave our salads the end of the table barely touched. I asked for the manager and we were assured new entrees would be made. With dessert coffee was forgotten despite being asked twice and the coffee came out around the time the check did. Our $9 dessert was free for the error with coffee but nothing was done to otherwise address the issues of no bread, entrees served with salad and overall lackluster service. We were checked on about every 15-20 minutes at best. This was not worth the $400 price we paid and we will certainly not return.
