The ambiance is great, we had a nice table on the second floor overlooking the open kitchen. Service was very good. While a bit overpriced, the food was above average. The lobster mac and cheese was a stand out, great flavor. The beef tartare was average at best. My girlfriends halibut was very good, the sides were a bit odd... More

We had a perfect anniversary dinner at 555! The restaurant exceeded our expectations after reading other reviews and picking an anniversary spot on a Maine vacation. Service was spotless and a very informed server who made excellent suggestions. We opted not to go with the chefs tasting dinner as we wanted a bit less food. Server stepped up and got... More

My wife and I had dinner here tonight. The food was delicious. It feels like the restaurant is working some bugs out as the summer gets into swing. It took a ridiculously long time to get our dinner. Our waiter was great, but he seemed to be the only person working who knew what he was doing. I would say... More

We were seated on the second floor. When we arrived at our table, they had paper printed with Happy Anniversary on it! Service was extremely prompt; our water glasses never fell below halfway. Food was excellent. They made a special occasion even more memorable.

Had a great meal at 555 in Portland last Saturday. Made reservations in advance. Had a quiet table upstairs. Great service. Nice cocktails to start. We weren't super hungry since we had a late lunch. We shared a salad with peekytoe crab, then I had a risotto with escargot and vegetables that was excellent. My wife had the mussels in... More

Limited menu, but what was there was great! This is an old fire station that has been turned into a special restaurant. Seating on the second floor overlooking the first floor is a must. Extensive wine list but more French than anything else. Our waiter was exceptional and the restaurant went out of their way to help us celebrate our... More

we went to 555 to celebrate our anniversary. we did the 5 course meal (not the chef's 5 course). the food was excellent and the service was superb. I strongly recommend eating upstairs...apparently if you are celebrating an event you are more likely to go upstairs. we stopped by in the afternoon to request it. I strongly recommend this restaurant... More

It was a normal greeting. Professional like we expected. Jerry took the reins as our server...and the rest was bliss!! A little bit of professionalism(as in old school) coupled with a bit of personal flare brought us to enjoy an incredible tuna appetizer, lamb loin and a hanger steak followed with PERFECT cheeses to finish off our experience!

We visited Portland for a brief overnight excursion with another couple, who had made a reservation at 555 for the 4 of us. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and shown to our table near the open kitchen. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, but allowed us plenty of time to peruse the extensive wine list. My husband and I... More
