This restaurant should be on your bucket list. Food and service were excellent from the time we walked in until the time we left. Portland has many fine restaurants, and this one is one of the best in an outstanding restaurant city.

Greeted by friendly staff when we arrived. Great bar with interesting cocktails. Try their Fahrenheit 555. That'll warm you up this holiday season. We opted out of their prefix Chef's Choice. We wanted a varied selection for this birthday dinner. It was wonderful. Seating could be a little tight. They seated us upstairs next to the Christmas tree overlooking the... More

Visited Five Fifty Five recently before going to Magic of Christmas with my wife. We had a 5:30 reservation to allow time before the 7:00 show. I was a little concerned with parking as there was a parking ban starting that night, so I knew the garages would be full. We did find a spot around the corner on the... More

Although this restaurant was not our first choice for our only night out in Portland, we were not disappointed and will certainly return. Suggest you get there early and get a table by the window, though the larger room with visible kitchen could be a treat, although a little noisier. We focused on the fish - a special scallop meal...

We had never been to Five Fifty Five. We were looking for brunch this AM and discovered they served. It was so good! My husband had the "traitor eggs" (eggs benedict) which included lobster meat. I had the traditional breakfast with eggs, bacon, toast, and a piece of sausage which was to die for! We thoroughly enjoyed and will definitely... More

In many years of dining out, this was the first time my partner and I sent back cocktails because they were watered down to the point of unrecognizability. The waiter took them back; it appears the bartender put the old drinks in a shaker, added something (?) re-shook and returned substantially the same drinks. So we put those aside and... More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. Although we are sorry you did not thoroughly enjoy yourselves, I do feel that it is necessary for me to comment on your claim that we water down our drinks. This is most certainly not the case, I can assure you. We are a respectable establishment... More

I am visiting Portland this week on business and needed to find a great meal after eating at the not so yummy hotel restaurant yesterday. I decided on 555 after checking out the menu. The restaurant is cozy and the staff is super friendly. I had the three day marinated hanger steak and brussel sprouts. It was sooooooooo good! The... More

We came here for my mom's birthday and the food and service were both excellent. I had the lobster mac and cheese, which was to-die-for with the truffle. The waiter was very attentive and knew the menu like the back of his hand. The food presentation is also quite impressive. The desserts were amazing as well.

Came back to 555 after dining there years ago and having a great experience. Good, but a bit disappointed. Ordered a glass of red wine which had clearly come from a bottle that had been opened for quite some time. To the server's credit, he brought over a bottle and opened it in front of me and poured another glass.... More

First off, I cannot fully express here how great this restaurant is. I have been to more expensive or prestigious ones that fell short in comparison. If I could afford it and lived a bit closer, I would go here much more frequently. Staff- Immaculate. The waitress was engaging and helpful. The bus-person (very nice lady) was more than attentive...
