Came up to visit our son at Binghampton University. This restaurant came highly recommended by our friends. It did not disappoint. One of the best service experiences I've ever had. Exceptional service, good menu and good food. This place definitely be compared to any top tier steakhouse in NYC or LI. Great experience!

As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for". Number 5 is a little cramped in eating space, the lighting makes it very difficult to read a menu, but the food is exquisite. We started with a simple spinach salad which had a delightful creamy bacon dressing. The appetizer was a lobster mac and cheese for the first time.... More

Unfortunately for us, we weren't as pleased as others with our visit to this restaurant. We've both lived in the area our entire lives and never tried Number 5, so we finally gave it a shot. 1. Pleasant atmosphere, nice music, white linens. Very classy and obviously a "special occasion" type of place. (Which this was for us.) 2. Waiter... More

We are sorry to hear of your disappointment the other night. We carry choice and prime steaks that are the highest grades of beef you can get. Neither of them, in any cut, are flavorless. All of our entrees come with complimentary bread and butter, complimentary soup or salad, and a complimentary side. It's hard to say that the quantities... More

My first visit was Easter Sunday so idl to review restaurants on a holiday but it was good and the service was very good. I ordered their most expensive steak. Was disappointing. However I opted to return... More

This is one of my favorites. You will not find a more flavorful steak. Service is professional and excellent always. The restrooms are on the 2nd floor which can be a problem since there is no elevator. They always have good music on the weekends.

Party of two. Seated upstairs. We arrived early to beat the Saturday night dinner crowd that would certainly arrive after 6PM after the end of the pro golf tournament We were current with their Menu, having received a recent Newsletter that announced that they were serving a Lobster Special.

Thank you for the great detailed review! We annually offer the Lobster Bake during July and August. We do apologize that your server did not offer it, we will be sure to make note of that for next year.

On the recommendation of friends who had attended Binghamton thirty years ago, we went to Number 5, a restaurant that had once been an old firehouse. The room was lovely, with a folk singer singing at the bar and the service was great. However everything we ordered tasted greasy! Well I did have an excellent baked potato but given the... More

This fantastic restaurant is a few miles past Binghamton University. Top notch food, service and ambiance. Expensive but worth it! Gluten free friendly too.

Wonderful meal and service for my daughter's 20th birthday. As a vegetarian, sometimes I feel slighted with my meal, but I didn't at all. My daughter and her boyfriend had steak (which was great) and my husband seafood (also great). I had the stuffed peppers with sun-dried tomato risotto which was amazing. Pricy but worth it.

Ate here a few months back. Now I'm back in town and figured I'd write NY 2 cents. Now I'm from the NYC area so if a restaurant is so so and charges more, then it won't last long. Not that this was an expensive place but was definitely over priced for mediocre food at best, everything we had was... More
