We dined here tonight and I have to say it was ne of the best experiences in a restaurant EVER. And that includes restaurants in Europe, Asia and North America. Jerry, our new waiter, was so on top of his game it was like he had been there since day 1. Autumn soup was off the charts good. Carpaccio was... More

I eat at 555 about twice a year and am always blown away by the food: the fresh ingredients, creative combinations and presentation is always top-notch. This visit was no exception. I did not give 5 stars because the service was not at the usual level. There were no back servers, and the wait staff seemed to be stretched thin.... More

Food was very good, particularly the seafood selections. Everything well prepared. The room is a bit noisy, but manageable. I have to agree that the staff are not overly pleasant, but not rude either. The service, however, was excellent and nothing to complain about, just nothing to rave about either. Would definitely go back.

The restaurant places an emphasis on its 5 course menus and although a little pricey both my Father and I decided to try it. The food for every course was outstanding, excellently presented and the portion sizes were well judged. The staff deserve a massive amount of praise as with a packed house across two levels, with the majority of... More

Firstly the food here was superb, I had an amazing piece of Hake, really well cooked and presented. The room itself is nice, a lovely building. However, we came as a table of 6, heading over to the White mountains we decided to break the journey in Portland. Chose this restaurant after readingTA, mixed reviews on the service and i... More

A great waitress navigated us through the impressive wine list, talked to us all about the menu (which was appreciated) and gave us the history of the cool, unique space. The pepper-crusted scallops (which we both had) were amazing - definitely recommend them! Already thinking about going back to take advantage of the 5 course chef's tasting (after fasting earlier...

Stopped here before getting on the ferry to Nova Scotia. Service was stellar and the food and drink were outstanding both in preparation and presentation. One of the best American deconstructed style restaurants I have been to.

We flew in from San Francisco and met our daughter here for dinner. What a wonderful find. Artisan cocktails, fabulous wine list, some of the best gourmet food we have ever eaten. My wife said her chicken was the best she had ever had anywhere. The presentation of the food was spectacular. I had the monkfish with fried green tomatoes... More

We visited friends who took us there for dinner last Saturday and we all had a great meal. The brick walls and nice lighting made for a great ambiance, but the food is the star here. I had the signature scallops and while large, they melted in my mouth. Our friends had some great monkfish and a nice plate of... More

This was probably my favorite meal while in Maine. Everything from the biscuits to to the apple-cider soufflé was so very tasty. I had the beet salad and for one who doesn't love beets, I was happily surprised. There were golden, white and purple beets. They were in chunks and I think I would have preferred them in julienned but... More
