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.

First of all, the name reflects the fact that the building was originally used as "Firehouse #5" for the city's South Side. The interior is rich in decor and history. You may request dining downstairs or up. Both are great; but the bathrooms are on the second floor. We prefer the main floor where the bar is visible. My husband... More

Were up in Binghamton for the holidays visiting family. Had our children pick the restaurants and No. 5 wasn't one of them. However, my husband and I decided to go by ourselves this past Sunday and we were not disappointed. Ordered Chicken Piccata for myself and my husband had pork tenderloin in a apple cranberry chutney. Food was excellent and... More

I have traveled across the US and around the globe except Africa and South America. I never wrote a review, because bad reviews affect the livelihood of people who works in that restaurant.
