I love the ambiance of this place and the simple steak menu. Not to worry, there is also seafood and chicken. My steak was done just right, and the side dishes were satisfying. This is the best that money can buy and don't even feel guilty

The price for a steak here at this steak house is to high for what it offers. I wasnt very please about the filet. I enjoy beef and I dont think I would come here if i craved it. The place is nice and dark. The service was great. It's a bit hidden if you dont know Long Beach and the ways around it. Again, great look but I cant say the same about the taste.

I have had the best steak here , better than Maestro's , Flemming's or Morton's. If you want the BEST Rack of Lamb its at the 555.
If you havent been before and love fine quality meat this is your place!

My girlfriend and I wanted steak and to try someplace different. So we get online and found 555 East in long beach. It got a lot of good reviews and was open late enough for us to get there from the valley. The place looks great, and we were seated quickly. But that's were the good ended for us, 45 mins later the waitress comes by and asks if we want to order a few glasses of wine. The wine guy recommends the cheapest glass at $10, then we ask for another recommendation, he says the most expensive is the best, at $16 a glass it better be. Another half an hour and we order, rib eye and the filet. My girlfriend's rib eye was great. The filet was WAY under cooked, I sent it back, still under cooked, sent it back again and it comes back burnt. They offer to cook another one, I say fine, comes out WAY under cooked again. By this time I don't even care about eating this stake, but the manager comes out and asked if they could try one more time. They do and it's great, they comped my steak and the wine. So in the long run it sort-of worked out, but we will NEVER go back to 555 East. The people were nice just don't order the filet.

Pros: The place looks great, go for drinks

Cons: Slow service, can't cook a filet and not cheap at all

You come for a really good rib eye or filet, but you have to try the crap cakes, they are some of the best I ever had. Great service, allow yourself time to enjoy your dinning experience with a good bottle of wine from their great selections

They weren't kidding about the tender and juicy steaks. Of course, Medium rare is the way to go but I'm sure any temperature would be seared to perfection. Thanks to one of the best nights in Long Beach, service was excellent!

I loved the food (great steak!!), but didn't love the atmosphere as much, so then it didn't seem worth the price. The service was good, and we didn't have to wait long for anything.

Moving here from the midwest I have ate steak in Omaha, Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, Denver and some places that weren't much more than a wide place in the road. The steak at 555 rates with best of all those. Great Service Too! By the way, I am not related to any one at 555. I do love steak though.

If you are use to higher standards of dining in some of the finest restaurants, this may be a bit disappointing. Service was mediocre, though the dishes came out quite promptly. However, our entrees came out before we were done with our starters and we had to make room for everything on our small table. I also had to refill my own wine glass from the bottle. I asked for my dish to be rare-medium but it was well. This is an okay place for dinner but would not consider it top in LA/OC. This is a restaurant I probably will never dine at again unless I'm down the street and craving good wine. With all this said, the wine list is pretty good and extensive.

i carefully read the reviews here before deciding to check this place out. I love a good steak and have been to the all the big name steakhouses (mortons, ruth chris', palms, etc). This place serves up just as a good a steak but at better prices. And the bartender knows how to make a dirti maritini just right! You won't be disappointed but make reservations.

Outstanding steak house with the best crab cakes I have ever found. Michael is my very favorite server. He's always smiling, makes me laugh, and always willing to go the extra for the patrons. The lamb is one of my very favorites. Full of flavor and very tender.

I've been privileged to dine at many steak houses and many of them are very good. However, for the most part I always keep coming back to 555 East... The food is superb! The service is great! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Took friends to dine at this place and since then - they have been asking me on a weekly basis when are we going back! Also, IF YOU HAVE ROOM... I highly and I mean Highly recommend there Souffle...

For excellent steak, Copperhead salmon, appetizers, clam bisque, chef salads & desserts, 555 is the best! Roomy, nostalgic interior with attentive staff. Open for lunch & dinner. Outdoor patio and underground valet parking available. Located across the street from the Hilton & close to Convention Center in downtown Long Beach.

PROS: Excellent steak & salmon with underground valet parking

If you want a traditional steakhouse, with waiters that pay close attention to your every need, then 555 is your spot. Because they pamper you, the price is not cheap. But, eating at 555 is worth every dime. Imagine a steak that "literally" melts in your mouth. This will be your experience at 555.

I can't say enough about the quality of experience at 555. The filet mignon absolutely melts in your mouth and is cooked to perfection. The wine list offers choices for all levels of the scale and the desserts are great. Absolutely professional service, perfect - and I do mean perfect - steaks.

There is a gentleman who plays piano at 555 East and he plays the best music. The atmosphere that he creates is so amazing. We had the greatest time at dinner for my college graduation celebration, and this man made our evening so much more. The food is absolutely fantastic, the filet just melts in your mouth, and the people who work there are prime. Salute!

I hadn't been to the 555 East for about 15 years but after attending an expo at the Long Beach Convention Center, I offered to buy dinner for my guests. Unbelievable ! We all had steak and I was pleasantly surprised to find most outstanding. Very cozy and ambiant atmosphere and the food was great. Believe me when I say you will throw rocks at Ruth's Chris once you've had a meal at 555.
