I was in town on business and by myself, so a bit nervous about sitting in a nice restaurant for an entire meal, but staff made me feel welcome and comfortable. I had the 8 course chef's tasting menu, and asked for smallest portions possible. It was absolutely one of the best meals I've had in ages! Not a single... More

Was very impressed with the food and service and the establishment. We took on the tasting menu and all the food that was served was of high standard, fresh ingredients and very well prepared. The restaurant also had to cope with a large party in the adjacent room, so to leave having such a good experience is a show of... More

Even though I was in Portland for business, I could see coming here for special occasions if I lived local, because of the cost. The presentation of the food from appetizers, soup to entrees was first class. We had four different entrees on our table, and everyone gave their dinner a thumbs up. The only suggestion would be make sure... More

We selected Five Fifty Five as a special evening out venue. It felt special from the beginning. We were treated well when we walked in the door. We had noted in the reviews that there was a balcony section, which we chose. This was a lovely location.The waiter was attentive but not obtrusive, and was knowledgeable about both the history...

Portland has become one of my favorite small cities and it's because of places like Five Fifty Five that I keep going back. We vacation on the coast of Maine every August and, while we could fly into Bangor and save three hours of driving, we choose to land at Portland because of the many fine restaurants.

This restaurant had been recommended to us several times during the past summer season by family members and friends who had dined there. We thought their enthusiastic comments were perhaps a bit "over the top." However, when we paid a visit there ourselves on a recent wonderful stay in Portland, we realized how right they were. The food is delicious,... More

We enjoyed the food here but not the attitude. It is quite odd that you get this kind of attitude in a place like Portland. I am actually a hospitality Consultant and don't receive the attitude in places we have dinedlike NYC, Chicago, SF, Paris, Tokyo, London....etc. We were really surprised by this. There are too many other places in... More

We requested to be sat upstairs and were so glad we did! The view overlooking the hustle and bustle of the kitchen was exciting. All of the things we tried were excellent! You can't go wrong with the lobster mac n cheese. It was not your average mac n cheese. Super moist, creamy, pasta cooked to perfection with generous pieces... More

We have eaten all over the world in the best restaurants and this rates up with the best! We went with the waitress's choices and had some of their signature dishes (not to miss): lobster truffle mac & cheese, fois grois, tomato pesto salad (tomatoes are in season),.
