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.

We enjoyed our entree’s. The portions on the cheese plate to share was minuscule. Each cheese selection was less than an ounce.

There was a serious issue with flies in the corner booth that we sat in.
Constant throughout our meal as we ate.

At this point, I really don't know. The menu has changed and now if you order the Brunch you are charged and additional $2 - $3 for a cocktail. Our waiter was not a person who should have been a waiter. He never came back to see how our meal was (our meals were good) and had a hard time receiving our check. He also paid more attention to other tables in the dining room (and they had the same or less people at their table. The topper was we had to ask for additional coffee. No one came to our table after the initial cup of coffee and/or tea. We used talk up our brunch experience at the Boulevard but I wouldn't want to talk about it now.

I have always found the cuisine, and wait staff at this restaurant to be excellent. Their menu, and specials are varied to my liking. The wine selection is very good and have never found it lacking when looking for the correct wine for my dinner selection. The wait staff i have had are informed, attentive and humorous, as I like. Not hearing crickets or helicopter blades. I would recommend to anyone.

Although we’ve been to Boulevard Five72 on multiple occasions, this was our first time going for brunch and we were not disappointed. As always Chef Scott’s dishes were outstanding. If you haven’t been here, you are missing out.

We had dinner at Boulevard Five72 and the food was delicious. The restaurant was accommodating with my bland diet. The seats were not to comfortable and to low for the table. The food was so good we will be back

The food and service were outstanding. We dined with our friends from out of state and they could not stop talking about how amazing the food was. They are jealous that the restaurant is so close to us! Great time with our friends and gave us the opportunity to share our favorite restaurant with them!

Ive been to this restaurant for dinner. This time it was for a business lunch and the food and service were just as on point as dinner. I had the salmon luncheon plate ($19) and it was delicious as I finished every bit of it. The service was just as good with the simple things such as refilling the water without asking, refilling the bread plate and making sure the plates were removed when finished. Overall another a great dining experience!

The best part of our dinner was sitting the table near the front windows, providing a nice view, and the shrimp corn soup was delicious. Service was prompt but cold, like we were an imposition to the servers life. Tables are close, and in the quiet dining room, all conversations are overheard.

This was my first visit to Boulevard Five72 to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday with the entire family and everyone had a wonderful time. I requested seating in the Wine Room hoping that it would be a bit quieter than the main dining room and was not disappointed. Every food choice was delicious but especially recommend the sea scallops and wild mushroom ravioli for appetizer. As an entree, I ordered the special of the evening - herb crusted halibut with little neck clam risotto. It was cooked perfectly and very delicious. Another entree to highlight is the lamb chop and roasted loin served with mushroom risotto. The meat was an exact medium rare as ordered. Presentation of the desserts was beautiful including a candle on my mom's citrus cheesecake! I especially recommend the banana chocolate chip bread pudding and coconut creme brulee, but if you prefer a dessert drink, try the chocolate decadence martini. Service was very attentive the entire evening. Prices are a bit high, but for a special occasion, it was worth the cost. I will definitely be back in the future.
