“Great dinner out”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Our group of four adults and an 11-month-old baby went out to celebrate a birthday at a 555 East, known for its great steaks. The food was really good, the service was excellent, and most of the staff took a little time to come and talk to the baby, which was nice. It's a beautiful restaurant, done in dark woods, and situated in historic downtown Long Beach. There is a beautiful bar up front. They have valet parking, but when we arrived the valet completely ignored us, which meant my husband had to go to the valet station himself to leave the keys with the attendant. When we left the restaurant we found our car parked exactly where we left it, right in front of the restaurant, but my husband had to go to the valet station to retrieve the keys once somebody arrived to unlock the key box. Odd. We've eaten here several times and will happily go back.

My wife and I were visiting our son in Long Beach on vacation.
We mentioned if he knew of a good steak house for dinner. He suggested
the 555 restaurant. We had the BEST Steaks we've had in a long time!
Great desserts Too! Highly recommend this place.

“Good food...Great service!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Some friends took me to 555 East for a special occasion. We had the private room in the back. The service was great. The Caesar was just ok, and the Calamari was just average. Nothing special. My steak was prepared as I requested and served with garlic mashed. It was good, but the presentation was just so-so. For the price, it seemed they could have put a bit more into the presentation.

“Get yourself back to 555”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

In the course of selecting a restaurant since the last time we were here a few years ago, we ruled out 555 on the point that we could get equal or better food and ambiance elsewhere. Now we are so pleased that we returned. Not only is their historical building beautifully developed and a unique setting with (rare) substance, but the quality of their food is better than my recollection of it. In my “off the chart” category is the rib eye steak and their beet salad. The Malbec was good; we need to try their Barbera again. Love their pianist, also.

“Good steakhouse”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Good rest in long beach.
Salads large enough for two.
Shrimp tasty. Family of two parents and two teens enjoyed. Lesurely dinner. Not rushed.
