Had a wonderful dinner here, again. Beef tenderloin with au gratin potatoes. So good!! Beef was cooked perfectly and tender as can be. Started with the roasted balsamic Brussel sprouts,very tasty. This place does not disappoint.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Flemington for a date night. Food is always authentic and delicious from the appetizers to dessert. You can clearly see & taste the love and passion the owner, Jonas, puts into his creations. What makes this place...even more welcoming than most restaurants is that the owner always comes out to greet his customers when not too busy or at the end of the evening. He cares tremendously for the town and for people passing through.More

Went for restaurant week pre-female, and loved the buffalo cauliflower and my wife enjoyed the short rib pot pie. However the miso glazed cod was sorely disappointing. Overcooked and chewy, my wife said “disgusting“. And she likes steamed fish. Should be pan seared, not over...cooked and then dish has some potential but would not order again either way.More

55 MAIN offers a wide selection of diverse continental dishes that will satisfy just about everyone. Dress code is casual and the interior decor is comfortable and inviting for both couples and groups. This restaurant is BYOB, so bring your favorite bottle of red or...white wine and / or beer to compliment your meal. I had the "Lamb chops and roasted potato special", which is not on the standard menu, so remember to ask if they have any specials before you order off of the main menu. The lamb was well prepared, but the portion was small and I’m glad that I ordered the salad wedge as an appetizer. If you are a big dinner eater, ask about portion size first, and then decide if you want to order an Appetizer and/or a Salad. I had the salad wedge which was excellent as they added extra condiments of my choice (olives) upon my request. My wife had the Boneless Beef Short Ribs - gnocchi, carrots, butternut squash, caramelized onions, pinot noir demi-glace., which she thoroughly enjoyed as well. I had the opportunity to sample the Wasabi Seared Tuna - gingered rice, Asian vegetable sauté, wasabi aioli, which was excellent. One of my friends had the Slow Cooked Pork Osso Bucco - mushroom and sun dried tomato risotto, pan gravy, which he thoroughly enjoyed and it was also a large enough portion to satisfy a big appetite. For Dessert, I ordered the vanilla/ chocolate mousse combination dish, which was excellent. Alejandra, our server, did a great job in helping us with our selections and with table service in general. Our dinner reservation was for 7:30 PM so there was more than adequate street parking in front of the restaurant. Overall I enjoyed 55 Main and wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking a great meal at moderate prices. My compliments to Chef Gold!More

My friends and I visited during restaurant week and weren’t particularly impressed. The service was wonderful and bread was delicious. Our appetizers were ok...buffalo chicken meatballs were tiny and you got 3 with a mound of apple slaw. The salad was large and delicious; lobster...wontons just ok. For our entrees, none of us were impressed. The chicken fried steak was super thin and the coating had virtually no flavor. It was, however, a bit spicy for our one friend who had been assured that the gravy wasn’t spicy. The pork belly “corn dogs” had a decent flavor, but there was way too much soft fat inside. Perhaps if the pork bellies had been fried or crisped prior to coating them, it would have made a more appealing dish. For dessert, the pumpkin wontons were incredibly good and worth coming back for. So, while none of us left hungry, we won’t likely visit again any time soon.More

We had an amazing dinner there including soup, salad, main and dessert. It was delicious. We looked forward to coming back with friends another time. However, later that week we did takeout to attend the Filling Station event. We got four burgers. They were charred...beyond recognition and most went directly into the garbage. I would recommend dining in, but personally I'm feeling a little betrayed that they could put out such stunningly awful burgers.More
