We were a group for lunch. They served lobster on a dry peace of hot dog bun. It was pretty bad. The main course I can't remember. The air conditioner was pretty loud

Number 5 has always been a go to restaurant for me whether it was to celebrate something or just to go hang out in the bar area to watch Brotherhood. I must say all their food is delicious but I am especially fond of their baked french onion soup- I get it everytime I go there. The only thing that... More

My husband and I have frequented the Number 5 Restaurant many times for "Special Occasions". We have always had excellent service and top notch food. We went to Number 5 for our 26th wedding anniversary on July 30,2014. Dinner started out fine....drinks, appetizers, and then the meal. My husband always orders the Greek Tenderloin. I happened to order the Prime... More

Hi Cindy. I read your review and am shocked at what happened. If it was apprised of the situation, I would have responded, either it was lost or I never knew. There is no excuse for what happened. I am sorry. I only wish you would have ordered something else. There are always going to be problems but we are... More

Another outstanding dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. My wife had the Greek stuffed tenderloin and I had the original Greek tenderloin. Service was exceptional. Our only negative was the peanut butter pie. It lacked any peanut butter flavor.

We celebrated my husbands birthday at #5, and had a wonderful time. We opt for a 5:15 pm seating, downstairs, and it is always honored. We had a leisure meal, of favorites, with excellent food, service and atmosphere. It is never a disappointment, and surpasses all our expectations. Well worth the money.

We spent our 22nd anniversary dining in this refurbished firehouse, across from a fire pole which we loved! We were seated promptly, upstairs, per our request. It did take our server longer to get to us than we felt was appropriate which is why I couldn't score it a five. However, drinks, appetizer, entree and dessert was fabulous! Each course... More

A bit pricey compared to other fine dining in the area. However, we have never had a bad meal. It's always exceptional food and service.
