The food was excellent but the service was truly extraordinary ... and the reason we'll definitely go back to Five Fifty-Five on our next visit to Portland, ME.

Great meal that lasted longer than I expected and very thankful for not being rushed. Even though I walked in on a Saturday night of a holiday weekend, I was given plenty of time to enjoy each course and to truly appreciate the pairings of different ingredients that one wouldn't normally except. Well worth the time and money for an 8 course meal that had some extras thrown in.

This is a dining experience not to be missed. The open kitchen allows you to watch the culinary delicacies as they are created.

I don't know where to begin, this place is great. The staff is really nice and you can tell they enjoy their job. We sat on the upper part and I would suggest it if you want to be a little more secluded. Got the 5 course dinner and I would highly recommend, makes it much easier. And of course the food was delicious! Hard to tell if I liked the lobster Mac and cheese or the pepper crusted scallops more though.

The best part of this meal was the conversations with the visitors at the next table, a woman and her grandson. They tasted and talked and enjoyed their experience, unfortunately more than I did. The 5-course tasting menu was uneven and uninspired. Five Fifty Five aspires to great things, but they don't pull it off. A couple of days later, the details of the meal had disappeared from memory. Being forgettable is not a recommendation.
