The occasion was for my wife's birthday and it was perfect. From the complementary soup shot from the chef to the awesome waiters and waitresses. Plus the food and desserts were delicious

I brought my friends here, who hadn't been in years. I was raving about the brunch. Service was embarrassingly slow. They forgot our coffee. Then the cream curdled. We ordered the brunch prix fixe. Portions were not what they had been in the past. They forgot the bellinis. We waited a long between each individual appetizer. They did not bring them at the same time? not sure why. My eggs were cold. I was so disappointed. Not worth the price we paid. Back in the day, the brunch was great. I do not recommend getting it. Just order an appetizer or two and a main course. You'll save a lot of money and time. Sadly, after coming here for so long, I cannot recommend Boulevard 572. I hope ours was a one off. It was very disappointing.

Always have an excellent meal and service at Boulevard Five72. First time having the salmon entree for lunch (instead of dinner) and it was excellent - fantastic combination of ingredients. “Thumbs up” to the chef.

The service and food was very good at Boulevard 572. It usually is. Tonight I had to send my salad back I specially said dressing on the side and I got on my salad with dressing.I had to send my salmon back 2x because I asked for medium cooked and it was raw twice. The menu says served with beets and roast potatoes which happened to be a garnish. It didn’t say on the menu garnish. So I was disappointed I didn’t have roast potatoes or beets just a garnish.
I don’t know if I will be back I was quite unhappy with tonight.

Nice date night with my wife. We each ordered the tasting menu and enjoyed every course. My wife generally not a lover of seafood but she ordered each course with seafood in it except for the dessert course. We also went with the wine pairings. Every course went great with the wine that was selected. The restaurant was very busy due to it being Valentines weekend but felt the staff was very attentive and could not have been nicer. I am a huge lover of fish and seafood and now my wife has found a restaurant that delivers to her pallet as well. We will be returning for future date nights!!!

Fiance and I had a table in the back corner of the wine cellar room. It was secluded, quiet and romantic. The service was very strong, though long breaks in between seeing your waiter. For apps we had the sweet potato ravioli and the lump crab meat cake. Both were excellent. For entrees we had the NY Strip and Ribeye, both also excellent. Would highly recommend!

Entire dinner was excellent - the crab cake appetizer, the apple & Belgium endive salad (has blue cheese, beets, walnuts), and the grilled organic salmon - was one of the best meals we have recently had - with excellent attentive service. Would definitely recommend.

Overall, I would say pleasurable dining experience, except for the fact that our server completely forgot about my birthday! Ooops! The whole point of making this reservation at 5:30pm was b/c we knew it wouldn't be busy, hence, there should've been time to accommodate a birthday ..wishful thinking! Insult to injury, after we paid the bill our server then comes over to us to say, "I'm so sorry, I forgot your birthday!" but didn't offer to do anything about it except make a joke about it! Double WHOOPS!!! Didn't make me feel like I'd ever want to return for a special occasion again or recommend to anyone else.

We had dinner at Boulevard Five 72 and we always enjoyed it. This time the service wasn’t as good as last time. We weren’t told about the specials. My salmon was to rare and she didn’t come over to see if everything was ok. I sent it back and had to wait awhile. She substituted asparagus and didn’t tell me after I said if you can’t steam spinach. I would have like to have known.
I will go back because I liked the food and the waiter last time was spectacular.

Food was delicious. Tried a number of items such as the duck and the veal special. Both were cooked to perfection. David, the waiter had a great sense of humor and was super attentive. The goat cheese cheesecake was different and an absolute must to order. Overall a great experience, highly recommended!

The tables are tight. The food was ok but for the price I would have expected better. I should have listened to the waiter. He told me the salmon comes out a little raw for some and I could request it be cooked well. Unfortunately I did not take the hint. It was very raw in the middle.

Wonderful Sunday dinner. Everything was delicious. The salmon was cooked perfectly, the duck was very tender and flavorful. We moved away five years ago and always make this a a must-do for dinner.... And we are never disappointed!

We had not been here in several years but when we returned we had a very nice dinner.
I am vegetarian so asked for a special entree which was provided. Vegetable risotto which was very good. Though as is common in many restaurants vegetarians often get relegated to a pasta which is not necessarily what is w as noted. More creativity is needed.
My husband had a delicious chowder and a salmon main dish, both of which he said were very very good.
We will definitely return soon.
