Overpriced and you needed a magnifying glass to see the entree. The only thumbs up, was the service was good, the waiters were very attentive. Would not go back!

Very good food in a warm, friendly setting. An interesting menu with some stand bys (grilled Caesar salad, pepper crusted scallops, lobster Mac and cheese) and many other interesting dishes. Great desserts. There is a bar area that is great for just drinks or drinks and food in a more casual setting. This is a great choice for a special... More

We eat at "the Five," at least once a month. Every meal here is special ( even the pub burger). The menu is a nice mix of the classic lobster Mac and cheese, steak and 3 or 4 other mains that change with the season. Each dish is beautifully presented, and the desserts are out of this world, and not... More

I had the 5 course tasting menu and there was not one swing and a miss among them. The beet salad was so beautifully presented I only regret that I did not take pictures of each course to share with you because it was all just gorgeous. The next course was a small plate of Hausgemacht Gnocchi with Duck confit... More

Have been here several times. Food is pricy but excellent. Try the lobster Mac & cheese. You can't go wrong with whatever you order, takes dining to a whole new level.

Choose from 3 or 5 course meals or the 7 course chef tasting menu. Our waitress was very informative and explained our options. Whatever you choose you are in for a treat. The menu changes as to what is in season. Extensive wine and drinks menu. The building is really neat which use to be the Old Fire House and... More

We had a very early morning flight out of NYC on the morning that we lost an hour. We picked 555 because we could walk from the Westin and had availability. We had a sunny table in the window and a delicious meal. Luckily it was restaurant week so I had the fixed price meal. Our only complaint was that... More

555 was recommended by the inn keeper were we were staying. When we first viewed the menu we were taken aback by what appeared to be a limited menu. Once the knowledgeable waiter explained the menu options, the variety of pairing options and the daily special, we were hooked. Our meals were truly outstanding. Be prepared for high prices. A...

The fixed price menu provides a sampler of great tastes, with original and unique flavor combinations. Not inexpensive, but worth it. Great wine list.
