Last night I ate at Five Fifty Five and was disappointed by the entire experience. Portland, Maine is a wonderful foodie city and the choices are endless. We chose this restaurant based on it's reputation having eaten there before and enjoyed our meals and experience. This time the entire experience from the waitperson to the limited choices on the menu... More

We enjoyed dinner here one night when we were in town. The atmosphere was cozy and cheerful. Our waiter was excellent -- he made good recommendations and was around when we needed him without hovering. The menu is creative, without being weird. We enjoyed all of our appetizers, main dishes, and desserts. I found myself wishing this restaurant were in... More

Our entire experience here was wonderful, from start to finish. Had a lovely table by the window and enjoyed watching the art students walk by. Our waiter, Nick, was knowledgeable and fun, and we enjoyed his advice and thoughts throughout the meal. And the food was spectacular. Biscuits were extraordinary--we'd return just for them. And beautifully paired with chive-sea salt... More

My husband is from Maine so whenever we get a chance to go back, we always go to Portland, especially downtown. This time we had our 11 month old daughter in tow so we had to be careful where we ate (she wants to eat what we eat, people hate children in nice restaurants, etc.). I had heard this was... More

Things did not start well. The two people who greeted us on our arrival were certainly not warm and friendly and told us to "go to the bar and wait until your table is ready". There were no seats and getting the barmen's attention to get a drink was impossible While the food is creative, tasty and very well prepared... More

Had a meal here with two business associates. It was all good. The salad had fresh greens and a very good light dressing. One associate had a heirloom tomato with goat cheese that he raved over. I had halibut which was done just right. Another associate had the duck and he was very pleased. Everything seemed to be fresh and... More

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...
