We dine out about twice a month in the Portland area and I have to say this is one of the best meals we’ve had in a long time. We were two couples and all four of us raved about our dishes. Our server was...very friendly, professional, and attentive. Thanks for a great meal!More

Jan 2022 2 years later I came back to this restaurant. The food quality retained the same quality. Ordered the diver scallops, steamed mussel pot with coconut and spicy sauce, ribs, cocktails prawn, fried five spice squid 🦑 but ran out on the usual Northwest...oysters … disappointing. Great wine selection and wine. Enjoy the good evening with friendly services!More

The food and view here were nice, but the staff wasn’t very friendly. It seemed they were just there to do a job. It is right on the lake so the view is nice and the food is pretty good

If you're hoping for a leisurely dinner on their deck . . . be prepared to be told 'your time is up!' We were there for a birthday celebration. One hour and twenty-five minutes in, our waitperson came to the table to tell us that...another party would be needing the table in five minutes! We had just finished eating, had half a bottle of wine left, and hadn't begun to think about dessert. We were shocked by this treatment. In all our years of eating out, and eating here, we had never experienced anything like this. We were told they had an hour and a half limit on the deck. My partner went and spoke to the manager about this and were offered a table inside and free dessert. Still . . .More

Our investment advisor invited us to lunch here. It looks directly on to Lake Oswego. A wonderful menu of upscale presentations and reasonable prices for the area. Service was prompt and friendly.

I really had high expectations of this restaurant ... I’m live in Oregón and my mother came to Oregon for the first time and I chose this restaurant so that my mother could eat well ... but apparently the one at the entrance and the...waiters are RACIST that we spent more than 30 minutes waiting and they never attended us and when we got up, the one at the entrance did not care that we said thank you for your poor service .... it hurts that they are like this with their customers!More

I was surprised to see this restaurant has a Certificate of Excellence. I guess we were just unlucky last night. Our family chose this restaurant for a birthday celebration. When making the reservation, we insisted we needed outdoor dining due to COVID concerns. Apparently they...did not read the notes, and when we arrived for our reservation, no outdoor tables were available. They told us they would give us the next available table, but apparently gave this away - twice. Long story short, we decided to try to find a different place after an hour of waiting. Other restaurants in the area were closed by this time.. Our special birthday celebration happened at a pizza place, late at night. What was most irritating was the lack of apology or concern. In short: FUMore

Despite all the new and challenging times we are facing, Five Spice was amazing. Gabby, the host, was the most accommodating and sweet person. She really was so patient and explained all the new rules to our family. She was a great person to talk...too, and I appreciated all her help. We got sat very quickly in the beautiful lounge area ( with very comfy couches). I ordered the coconut shrimp as an appetizer, and it was perfection! For dinner, I had the Spicy Seafood Stew, which I would recommend. It was cooked perfectly and was filling. Our server, (the guy with the beard) was so patient with us, and was very knowledgeable, I could tell he was passionate about his job. Overall, I am so glad I picked Five Spice as my first dinner out of lockdown. The service here is unmatched, as well as the food. Go here, and leave with a smile!More

This is our go to place. We’ve enjoyed all servings. We’ve eaten the lunch, happy hour, and dinner with great selections. I’d list the items we’ve had but it would be to long. I’d recommend happy hour to try many of the items.

Excellent seafood especially the Sturgeon. Restaurant is loud, service is adequate but nothing special and prices are high for the portions that are served.

we recently met friends at Five Spice for happy hour. Really nice cocktails, and the food was well presented. Great service. We have had dinner there previously, and it was great, too, though a bit on the spendy side.

I just called to make a reservation and the hostess who answered was uninterested, un helpful and discouraged the reservation by her attitude. This for a supposed 5* restaurant turned me off completely from making the reservation. I didn't want the same experience to continue...if we did come there.More

The food was really wonderful, as was the service. Really nice view with a lot of windows. I had the sturgeon and it was great. Even the side dishes were exceptionally tasty. However, it is a bit spendy, and you can get most of the...same items a bit cheaper if you sit in the bar.More

Five Spice is one of those restaurants that gives off good vibes as soon as you enter. There is a waiting area with fire place and the seating is well arranged and spaced with beautiful views of the lake and trees. We were there for...brunch/lunch and the menu had a great selection of dishes to suit everyone. I started with a delicious grapefruit mimosa followed by the seared whole trout, roasted potatoes and two eggs. The trout was butterflied and was perfectly seared. I was very impressed. One of our party chose the tempura fish and chips which was thoroughly enjoyed. My spouse ordered the seared ahi quinoa bowl with edamame, pickled vegetables and wasabi greens with a soy sauce. He stated it was very good. Our waiter was patient, personable and professional. We will definitely visit this restaurant again.More

Sure. I've seen adults in "adult" restaurants much more disruptive than most well behaved kids.
