Last night we dined at Five Corners, a local favorite. The restaurant was packed, as it was a Friday evening and the beginning of the weekend. The service was incredibly slow, which seemed to be routed in the kitchen and was not a reflection of...our server at all. We ordered bread which took just over a half hour - as a result, we asked our server to please remove it from the bill, which he did. The rest of our meals were also significantly delayed - far too long for a dinner. We asked the our server if he could please take something off our bill because the entire experience was less than optimal. He said he would “see what he could do.” About 5 minutes later, the owner came out literally questioning our feedback and also saying “I don’t remember anything being delayed.” It was incredibly arrogant. What he should have done is come out and said, “I am sorry for the service tonight and greatly value your comments and your business. We will be happy to take off one of your meals. We hope you will give us another chance and we look forward to serving you soon.” Wouldn’t that have been better than to be snarky to a neighbor? This is the exact same reason we stopped going to Five Corners about five years ago - a very similar response from management who clearly could care less about their clientele. Never again.More

We heard great things about 5 Corners Kitchen and it delivered in all areas. We were six for dinner and we all ordered various menu items. For starters we shared the Crispy Brussels Sprouts and they were well seasoned and excellent. Various diners ordered adult...beverages and the one diner below 21 years of age ordered a Lemon-Lime soda; if we had any negatives it would be the price of the drinks were a bit high, but hey what can you do, you can’t bring your own Prosecco! For dinner we ordered the “Wester Ross” Scottish Salmon, the Line-Caught Cod, Pasta in Red Sauce prepared multiple ways and Cacio E Pepe. We finished almost everything and what we did not we brought home. Dessert is not something we usually order out, but their gelato is house-made and was some of the best gelato we had in years (we had a bad gelato experience in Hawaii, yes if bad gelato is the worst of a Hawaii trip you are doing pretty good!), and to boot they serve it with cocoa nibs! Located in Marblehead’s business and restaurant district 5 Corners Kitchen is well worth the visit and as frequent visitors to Marblehead we can confidently say we’ll be back again.More

Our experience disappointingly started off very poorly with an extremely rude receptionist. However Jay, our server quickly ameliorated our disappointment with his pleasant and attentive service. The vibe is upbeat and food was excellent… I can’t say enough about the charred broccoli… I never would’ve...thought I’d be giving a vegetable such an accolade! The other dishes were also prepared creatively and cooked to perfection. 2-stars only because the receptionist…. our first impression … was totally despicable and her condescending attitude is unacceptable!!More

Although this is one of the only “fine dining establishments” in Marblehead, don’t bother. There are other restaurants in close proximity that are better in terms of food and pricing. The food is overpriced and underwhelming. Not the worst food ever, but certainly not at...the price point. The staff is extremely rude as well.More

Yum! Boneless 1/2 Chicken and Dry Aged Pork Chop… Both meals were excellent and very tasty. The Chicken meal was the best I’ve ever had. The chicken was juicy and sat atop the carrots, mushrooms and pommels purée. The atmosphere was lively yet felt intimate...enough for the two of us (thank you for having the music at a volume where the patrons did not have to shout to hear one another!). Definitely eat here if you’re in Marblehead MA.More

Regretfully after many years of enjoying the hospitality at 5 corners we have to report the caliber of both the menu and the service has struggled to recover from the challenges of the past year, After several visits Intended to support one of our favorite...local spots, 5 corners is struggling to offer the level of quality and hospitality we’ve enjoyed over the years. We hope this is temporary and things will improve with time but our experience here over the past month is one that prompts me to report that despite our fervent efforts to support this establishment that their efforts are falling flat. We’ll not be strangers here but need to give Elizabeth and her team time to recover their footing lost over the past year. There are other restaurants locally more on top of their game. Check them out!More

My wife and I recently enjoyed a meal here. The service was great and the outside dining was handled well. I had the steak frites and they were fantastic. Tender meat and a large portion of fries.

This was my first time to Marblehead in over 40 years. I had a couple of evening hours to spare and looked for a high-quality restaurant that was taking social distancing seriously - I was delighted with my meal and experience. T5CK has a talented,...creative kitchen: the menu is fairly short but has a wide range of options. Staff were excellent - cleaning tables very carefully; helping each other seamlessly; managing both tables and curbside pickup efficiently. My waitress was very helpful, courses were delivered with good timing. Most important, the food was superb (I had the wedge salad and pesto pasta). Bravo for doing such a great job in these challenging times!More
