We LOVED the tasting menu

This was our first experience with a tasting menu. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed each and every selection that was presented. Everything was well prepared and fantastically presented.

Really was ordinary and with the great restaurant scene in Portland this should be much better. Tables are RIGHT on top of each other. Not what you want with so many other great choices in the area

Excellent dining in a very pleasant restaurant. The menu is never run-of-the-mill, and the service is understated and excellent.

First class service, food is always amazing, ask to sit upstairs for more intimate dining, the other night we just went in after the play for a snack and a drink and that was also very pleasant!

Simply put, my wife and I enjoyed one of the greatest nights of our lives at Five Fifty-Five. True, it was the rehearsal dinner for our wedding, so OF COURSE we had fun. We were with our closest friends and families. But a huge portion of credit belongs to the restaurant and especially to their tremendous personnel, including their assistant... More

We had my son's and his bride's wedding rehearsal dinner at Five Fifty-Five on December 30, 2015. Due to that large size of the wedding party and other guests (about 50 people), we decided to take over the entire restaurant for the celebration. The experience was fantastic from the initial planning stage with Hayley, the 555 events coordinator, through cocktails... More

Came in for the New Years Eve dinner and was not disappointed! Our server, Laura, was excellent - friendly, very quick and knowledgeable on the menu. The NYE reserve wine pairing was so good, I came home and looked up the white Bordeaux I had with the kale salad! The winter cocktails were also amazing. This hot buttered rum drink..I'm... More

This Portland restaurant was highly recommended to us and did not disappoint. We were visiting Portland over Thanksgiving and decided to give it a try. The food was fabulous. My husband had the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, which he enjoyed very much. (He also let me sample some of his dinner, and I thought it was very good, too.) I went... More

K8 & I have been to 555 for dinner, and on a later trip, brunch. Both were excellent. The meals were well prepared and presented. Service was attentive without being intrusive, and the attention to detail shows itself everywhere. We like the exposed kitchen and the aromas it provides. There are many restaurants in Portland (too many?), but few that... More

Three of us dined at 555, anticipating marvelous food and service. The service was spectacular. All of us were served at the very same time, our waitperson provided attentive service, did not ask us once how we were enjoying our meals (which we appreciated), and did not clear until all were finished (someone taught her well). I had the much... More
