My boyfriend booked reservations here for us for Valentine's Day, they were offering a prix fixe meal. We arrived a little early (on purpose, as we like to enjoy a drink at the bar before sitting for dinner) and we had a very friendly bartender and delicious drinks. We were promptly taken to our table when our reservation time came,... More

Tried making reservations at another restaurant but they could not accommodate us for a time we might like to eat. That restaurant had recommended this one (and one other). After reading reviews, we thought we would give it a try. The atmosphere was nice, though the noise volume became quite loud as the place filled up. All of the staff... More

My special lady and I had reservations for early on Saturday evening, and we were greeted promptly and courteously by Mike, who would also be our primary server for the evening. Attention to detail, both in décor and with our dinners, was fabulous. Mike and crew (there were several folk who moved in-and-out with our orders) were great. The food... More

We decided to try 555 based on reviews, location, and their tasting menu. It was a quiet Sunday evening. The service was excellent. My friend ordered off the tasting menu, and she very much enjoyed her dinner. I chose the a la carte option. The pear and burrata salad was flavorful. My entree (braised rabbit pappardelle) was quite small (especially... More

We went for dinner the other night, and what a great experience! The setting and atmosphere were wonderful. Not a lot of restaurants are offering tasting menus, and those that do sometimes seem to not put thought into them. Not 555! The tasting menu was really great, the selection was fantastic, and the flow from course to course was excellent.... More

I'd been meaning to try 555 for a while, and we did so when a friend visited last month. It was a wet winter evening and it was pleasant and cozy inside. I remember best the pear and burrata salad and chicken liver pate, but know there was much else to enjoy. Wine by the glass was very good. I... More

My wife and I recently visited 555 having heard numerous accolades and it scoring very highly on TA. We arrived on a weeknight with 6:15 reservations and were seated immediately. The wait staff was excellent, very attentive. She ordered the 5-course Tasting Menu and I the Dry Aged Striploin Steak cooked med-rare. She was very impressed with most of her... More

My wife and I had dinner here just before Christmas. We had a drink at the bar talking with other holiday revelers. The service was quick and professional and the drinks were great.

We ate here on our annual holiday trip with family the weekend before Christmas. As luck would have it, we arrived in a snowstorm but the restaurant was just a short walk around the corner from our hotel. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like we were their only guests. They won't seat you early, so we were... More
