We visited Five-fifty-five on a busy Saturday night. As with most restaurants in downtown Portland, parking was difficult; we had to drive around for a little bit but found a space just across the street from the restaurant.
The menu offers three prix-fixe menus, $50, $65, and $85. I think you can order individual plates of items, also. Drinks were extra, and they added a very hefty amount to the total bill.
The restaurant is owned by a James Beard award-winning chef, and the food offerings were outstanding. The lobster mac-and-cheese was a special treat, and the seared scallops superb. Unfortunately, the restaurant was so loud, we couldn't hear each other talk. All in all, I felt the restaurant was too expensive and too loud.
