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.

The food was very good, and there were many attractive items on the menu. The restaurant was fairly empty as we dined late Sunday afternoon.

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 entrees, cocktails, and service were excellent. The crabcake starter and salmon entree were perfect. Would recommend as all four of us each enjoyed their respective dinners.

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.

My job had our holiday brunch and the French toast had hair and also one of the glasses of water. I was there again 2 weeks later and me glass of Bellini had a speck of something in the glass...I was very disappointed.

Always a wonderful meal. Eclectic menu, deliciously prepared, with great service. Pork loin and rib eye were tender and juicy. Wonderful seafood salad, focaccia, pistachio string beans. Best vodka martini.

The meats (duck and salmon) were cooked properly, but that was about it. Everything else was either overly oily (table bread, sautéed greens), too sweet (mashed sweet potatoes), or both (sauces). The restaurant itself seemed tired: the wall by our table was dirty and scuffed up, the yellow cloth panels on the walls were dingy and crooked, and the upper walls were cracked. I am reluctant to criticize someone’s business this much, but the other OpenTable reviews do not reflect my experience.

Lovely and delicious Thanksgiving dinner at Boulevard Five72!
My husband and I enjoyed the moist organic turkey with all the trimmings! Our hostess, Alison, made us feel at home. Bucky, our waiter, was informative, courteous and kind, as well as all the staff! Our experiences at Boulevard Five72 never disappoint!

Best Thanksgiving dinner. Family style apps amazing endive salad, fried calamari, meatballs, crab cakes, squash ravioli and antipasto. Followed by a full plate of white and dark meat turkey with ALL the trimmings. Then tartlets first dessert. And everything is amazingly delicious. No wonder this was our 7th year.

We called early in the day to push back our reservation by 45 minutes since we anticipated running late. They accommodated the request but when we arrived at the new time we sat at the bar for about 40 minutes because they didn't have a table. It was Saturday and crowded so even after we were seated the kitchen was a bit backed up and service was not up to the usual. Having said this, they did recognize this and bought a round, which was very much appreciated. The food was outstanding as usual. I had duck, wife had the snapper special. The restaurant is also very comfortable with most tables being 4s. there is no row seating and plenty of parking. We will continue to make the trip in the future...its consistently very good.

The food was excellent and well presented. The staff was attentive and not intrusive. Our main waiter, David, was delightful. The dinner was served with an appropriate amount of time between courses. We were not rushed nor did we have to wait for an inordinate amount of time. The grilled veal chop was prepared perfectly with a creamy parmesan risotto. Two of pur party thoroughly enjoyed the almond crusted cod. We will be dining at Boulevard Five 72 again.
