“Yummy fish and locally-sourced veggies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Five Senses offers a seasonal menu, so what you read here might not be available on the menu when you go. Had a Thai seafood soup special with a coconut milk base; there was a lot of meat and a mild amount of spice. Had a good sized piece of grouper for the entree that was served on a bed of whole barley grains that provided a nice variety in textures. A nice pear tart finished the meal. Presentations of the dishes showed that the chefs paid attention to the details - many of the dishes brought to the table got "wow!" responses.

“Perfection!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

At first we were a little hesitant to go in since the restaurant was buried way in the back of a strip mall but I'm sure glad we stopped. From the minute we sat down until the time we left, everything was pure perfection. We started with the Bruschetta x 2, our entrees were the Grilled Flank Steak Au Poivre and Spicy Wild American Shrimp Pasta, and for dessert the Chocolate Espresso Ganache Tart. Locals don't know how good they have it to have this restaurant in their backyard. Food of this caliber belongs in a high end district like Lincoln Park & the Gold Coast in Chicago, not a strip mall.

“Terrible Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

My and wife I decided to check out Fives Senses on a whim Saturday night. After being sat by the hostess we proceeded to wait for a server. Numerous servers passed by but no one greeted us or even offered to take our drink order. We literally waited 10 minutes before deciding to leave. Everything on the menu is around $30 an entree. If you are going to pay that kind of money I think it's reasonable to get decent service.

“Atmosphere, service & great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

This is absolutely the BEST in the 'Boro! Everything about this place is great! Love that it is locally owned and operated! Enjoy the way the owner/chef actually comes out to check on how things are going.

“Not bad for Middle Tennessee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

The owner/chef of this Murfreesboro eatery trained at the Culinary Institute in New York. His unpretentious restaurant, located in a strip mall, features American cuisine that uses local Tennessee ingredients. This approach to dining is all but unheard of in the land of major restaurant chains and bad BarBQ. The bartender is largely clueless. Stick to beer and wine. The menu offers enough variety to satisfy most diners. The execution of most dishes, while not perfection, is adequate. Reservations are recommended. This restaurant can become quite crowded and loud as locals have limited alternatives.
