The service was incredible and the staff were very welcoming and helpful.
Truly fabulous all around. The fois gras was "last meal on earth" worthy! Would definitely go back and recommend to others.
Have always enjoyed 555. Think this was an “off” night as the food was good but not the excellently prepared delights I know to be their standard. As always the servers were terrific.
Food was really good but it could have been warmer. Even the coffee was lukewarm. But I would go back!
Lovely touches for our anniversary! Tasting menu with wine pairings is highly recommended!!
As always it was wonderful, our waiter was great and attentive. See you again soon.
Our first night out together in over a year and it was well worth the wait! I made a note that this was our belated anniversary celebration and we were treated to a lovely card on the table as well as a complimentary champagne toast for the occasion! The staff was wonderful - attentive but not overbearing, and the food was amazing! We both did the Pre Theater option as we had a concert to go to and were so happy with the choices and the value. Hopefully we'll be able to return again soon! Thank you 555!
Excellent and beautifully presented food; superb and attentive service.
Why not 5 stars? The place has become a bit shabby, with worn or scraped finishes, and it desperately needs to be freshened.
The food was fantastic. We had the 5 course tasting menu and I can not recommend this enough. It was wonderful. The Staff are extremely attentive and great at making sure everything is as best it can be. I would highly recommend 555 to anyone.
Friends & I enjoyed a very pleasant meal after the theater. The food was fabulous, the service top notch and the very best of all....it was quite enough to enjoy our conversation.
A very special evening at 555. We were celebrating my 70th birthday and had a terrific evening. My wife and I have eaten here before but my Son and Daughter In Law had not. We were all pleased with our meals and especially the great attention from our server Howard. Anyone looking for a great spot in Portland should definitely consider 555. First class from start to finish.
We opted for the five course gran cru wine pairing. The food was delicious and creatively prepared and the wines were quite good. We thought the prices were high for a Maine restaurant. The service was impeccable!
Wonderful service and cool vibe in the restaurant. It was a little hot above the kitchen but we loved our food and had a great night.
Great atmosphere. Food was excellent & wait staff was wonderful. Every staff member we encountered had a wonderful attitude so welcoming & helpful. Lovely evening & would go back & definitely recommend!
I highly recommend you head to this romantic and cozy restaurant if you're in Portland with your significant other. The restaurant has a balcony-type upper level, which overlooks the rest of the restaurant. My boyfriend and I had a table up there, which added to the romantic atmosphere.
The food was incredible! We got the mussels and mac & cheese. Prices aren't too bad if you don't order drinks. Service was quick and friendly. A must in Portland.
A must go to in Portland, Maine. Wonderful setting in a former fire house. Attentive staff. Food superb.
Great for nontraditional foods and wonderful selection. High end food with high end presentations
Food was delicious and service impeccable.
Great food and excellent service. One of the best anniversary dinners we have had!
Really great food. Nice people. Beautiful presentation of food. Excellent restaurant
We experienced the tasting menu with wine pairings our server was fantastic and knowledgeable. The wine pairing was a nice experience the food was diverse some I loved some was just ok but overall a wonderful experience!
Relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The cuisine was delicious and such interesting offerings! Loved it!
All the staff was super nice to make our anniversary celebration perfect!
We went to Five Fifty-Five to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and had a wonderful experience. The food and service were both absolutely top notch and the kitchen was more than willing to accommodate my wife's vegetarian diet. The next time we are going out to celebrate a milestone or life event in Portland, we will not consider going anywhere else.
Lovely spot with fantastic food and superb service. Server was friendly and attentive. Food was creative but comfortable and well prepared.
Made a reservation 2 weeks ago. The staff was very accommodating. They were very attentive. The food was good but I expected more variety. Limited menu. We had 4 adults basically sitting at an adequate table for 2. There was barely room for a cocktail and a glass of water. We had to put items from the table on the window shelf behind us. It was our first time there and I wouldn’t rush back.
Food and service was excellent, it was just a bit chilly in the room near the bar along the windows. We will definitely go back!
The hostess staff seemed overwhelmed; there was a line and a number of unbussed tables and they didn't manage their situation well. Apps were okay but hardly memorable. The entrees were fabulous, excellent. This place seems to have a great chef and a deer-in-the-headlights front of house staff. Our waiter was quite good but others were wandering around, lost - a distinct lack of training. We may give it another try, but not in any hurry.
We had a wonderful night dining at your amazing restaurant. We felt welcomed from the second we arrived. The atmosphere, service and food were all incredible! Thank you for such a nice evening!! We will be back for sure.
Amazing experience! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Portland.
We got the tasting menu with wine pairings. It was excellent, some of the best fois gras I have had, the portions were perfect. Only negative was the lobster mac and cheese was not great and had only a few pieces of lobster
Five Fifty Five was a wonderful surprise. The food, ambience and service were impeccable.
Despite our guaranteed 815 open table reservation we were not seated until after 9. After that we had excellent service and food
It took me 15 min to get to the reception because of the queue! and another 30 min to get my table ready. I thought this was a fine dining restaurant! They were overbooked and the restaurant was still taking reservations!
Restaurant was abnormally loud and Food was OK.
Not happy with an hour wait and hostess attitude. They did not compensate ... but food and server were very good
Great service by the lovely staff for our anniversary dinner.
We love 555. We were in the zone for a great hamburger which we got and enjoyed.
Ordered the roasted mushroom salad. It is misnamed. Had to hunt for the mushrooms. I expected the kale and radicchio but mostly buried with curly greens.
Ordered an Irish Coffee, what we don't have whipped cream?? Used some of the ice cream from the dessert.
Amazing food. Excellent service. Great wine selection. High end prices but worth it.
Tasting menu is amazing. The staff is excellent and very nice. Had a wide variety of beers and wines. We had the five course tasting menu and each item was better than the last. I would come back here more often if I wasn’t from out of town. Very nice kitchen and dining rooms.
We had tickets to a show at the Merrill. Our server was very attentive to our schedule and still managed to serve us at an enjoyable and relaxed pace.
