if you want a truly delectable meal you need to visit 545. It has been around for a little over 5 years and the owners are fantastic. always generous with their time, donations to local high school sports teams, etc.

Food and drinks are top notch. But service is still highly marginal!!! Could do souch better. Management and ownership are terrible for letting this go on.

This restaurant feels like you are eating in the city. It has a small bar, great outside dining area with a fireplace, tables and booths inside. There is always and exciting energy and the food is very good. The tuna tartar, 545 salad, hanger steak and 545 martini make an excellent meal!

We have been eating at 545 since it opened. The drinks are hardy and the food always seems to hit the spot. Recently we had the tuna appetizer….great, as usual. We also had the salmon and 3 of the fish specials all were very tasty. Bread pudding for dessert could have used a little more sauce, but otherwise a generous... More

Great for a nicer lunch or dinner. Food is consistently very good, although service can be a bit slow sometimes, especially on the weekends. Outdoor patio is nice in the summer. There is plenty of free parking in the nearby public garage. Nice local atmosphere.

Food is very average but the prices are high . Ok service. Nothing special about this restaurant. Prices should be $2-$3 cheaper per entree.

Weve eaten here a few times recently and have been really pleased with the food. The menu is not expansive but there are good selections which are nicely done and specials are very good.

There wait staff needs to polish up and the owner as well! For being a upscale bistro there staff isn't educated on their wine and food!

Six of us ate here on a Friday night. In spite of making reservations, there was no table for us inside the restaurant. Instead they assured us the plastic enclosed patio was very cozy on a chilly, rainy, breezy night. It wasn't cozy though they did pull up two gas heaters. Unfortunately one of them kept dying. One of our... More
