We were looking for a place that opened on the earlier side for a Sunday brunch and happily stumbled upon this gem. We had a delicious lobster benny. The staff was very attentive and easy going with our one year old who was with us. I would go back in a heartbeat!

I travel the country extensively for work and pleasure and people always ask me where is your favorite place to eat. While I have been lucky enough to have some amazing meals, I always answer without hesitation that 555 is my place. Some dishes you must have, the appetizer of mussels is out of this world. If it wouldn't be... More

Overrated, I think. It was an attractive restaurant but the food was not that interesting or delicious. It's solid, certainly, but not one of the best in Portland's amazing culinary scene.

Nice atmosphere. I did the tasting menu, which was a little pricey for Portland but was delicious! Would definitely return.

Our first stop while visiting Portland . Ordered small plates - gazpacho and cheese selection. Our soup order was split into 2 bowls for easy sharing without us even asking. Waitress Blair was informative of the menu and local area . Comfortable atmosphere and ambiance .

I've been to 555 three times now. The first time, I was really happy with my food. The second time we got an awesome table where we could watch the kitchen. Its a lot of man-power to make each dish, so I guess I understand why they charge so much for their food, despite the small portions (they are certainly... More

Super creative cuisine. Anything we ordered was served and tasted amazing. The restaurant is very nice. The service was great. We were tired and the restaurant was full. We thought we'ld be in for long waits. Not at all, the flow was perfect.

Went for a dinner and was not disappointed in the least. Probably one of the best meals ever eaten in Portland. The setting was quiet and our server was one of the best. We did the Chef's tasting course and every part was fabulous. This is a must eat restaurant for couples or small groups of 4 or 6 guests.... More
