I wandered in off the street and ate at the bar. The soup was outstanding, but they got my order wrong after that. Bartender seemed distracted and not particularly friendly. I think if you eat in the main dining room the service might be more consistent with the quality of the food.

Everything was perfect. I had the best dinner I have ever eaten in many years of fine dining. We ordered the five course tasting menu where we were given choice courses, meaning that I didn’t have to surreptitiously slip fois gras or oysters onto my partner’s plate. Hints of good things to come began with an amuse bouche, a perfect... More

Fabulous This was without a doubt the best meal we had on our “foodie trip” to Portland. Everything was right, the atmosphere – an old firehouse, the server – delightful, and the food – over the top great. My husband ordered hanger steak and rated it a 10. I ordered halibut. It was sweet and tender, not overly cooked or... More

Quick overnight through a "foodie" town, we chose 555 for dinner. Service was outstanding, the restaurant was comfortable, clean, sophisticated. My husband chose the 7 course prefix menu, I chose 5. We thought our dinner was outstanding, however, the wine selections were not. They were just okay. If we were to do it again we would likely just order a... More

Perhaps the top rung of restaurants in Portland is Five Fifty-five. It is crowded and frenetic but the service and the food are fantastic. Lots of items are locally sourced or made in house. The combinations of ingredients were representative of summer's harvest The waitstaff was always nearby to ask if you needed anything or to cater to y9our whim.... More

A fabulous meal to end a perfect day! We arrived a little late but we were greeted as guess should be and seated within minutes. The food is mostly local and you can sample many of the suggested appetizers and small plates in a tapas style if you wish. The local cheeses were excellent. The wine list is short but... More

Simply one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had in over 37 years of dining around the world. The space itself, special and so comfortable, the ambiance not contrived in anyway. Did I mention the menu was beautifully presented, the wine list astounding and the taste of every course an explosion of dazzling taste? As if all the... More

I had the 5 course tasting menu. The food was exquisite, and our server was attentive and knowledgable. Reservations are necessary at least 3 days in advance. Proper attire it's required.great wine and beer list as well.
