    We were in town for our anniversary and a Saints game. I wanted a big sit-down breakfast before the game, close to the hotel & stadium, with no wait, but still wanted to experience local cuisine. I picked this place based on the description of the Crescent City Omelette on the menu. It was exactly what I was looking for. For $4 more, we had access to the rest of the buffet & coffee/tea/juice. They do not skimp on cheese & fillings for your omelettes, which are made to order.

    Absolutely one of fhe worst restaurants I have booked through Open Table. The dining experience was a disaster from the hostess (who was difficult to understand) to the waitress (who couldn't describe what the entrees were) to the food itself. The restaurant is located inside the Marriott Hotel and I am very surprised the management allows this this type of poor quality, being there are so many other restaurants in the surrounding area and there are many tourists that come to New Orleans to experience the dining scene. The restaurant and the hotel chain should be ashamed of themselves.

    5 Fifty 5 is a spectacular restaurant located within the New Orleans Marriott. We were in town to celebrate my mothers, sisters, and partners birthdays. We were delighted to have picked this location above all others. Chef Yves Favier and servers Doris and Letictia were phenomenal along with management staff, in particular Tanner, Keith, and Stephen. We were treated professionally, warmly, and made to feel that our special celebration was one to remember. The restaurant even prepared a special cake for the occasion.

    I chose this restaurant because of what I saw in their online menu. The actual experience was not even close. Their online menu had at least 50 items to choose from. In the restaurant they had about 12 entrees. When I brought this to the attention of my waitress, her response was, "the online is never right, they change the menu every 3 months". Change the menu??? Are you kidding? Try change the restaurant. There was no way to recognize that one menu related in any way to the other. It was as though you went to the wrong place by accident. This was a dinner experience where I was taking out a client. The fact that we had fried chicken instead of lobster ravioli is a big deal.

    My wife an I went here for our 4th anniversary. The food was good, but the bread they bring you was AWEFUL. It was very hard and felt like I was chewing it forever. My jaw was so tired of chewing the one piece I had, I was glad I ordered the Filet. The Filet and the Lobster Mac and Cheese was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Def made up for the bread.

    Empty Restaurant in full hotel should have given us a clue. Small menu was fine but the waitress couldn't answer questions about the beer choices. Start of Service was okay as drink and food arrived quickly. Turkey Club was skimpy. Then things got bad. There was a party of 6/7 people nearby that had food in front of them the whole time we were there. They had to ask the hostess to find the waitress. I had a clear view of the entrance to the kitchen. All waitstaff and the Manager spent inordinate amounts of time back there instead of on the floor. We waited over 15 minutes after eating to see our waitress and finally had to ask the hostess (who was rude and told us to wait). Don't waste your time here.

    I had breakfast here with two colleagues. The a la carte food was good, although one of us had trouble getting the correct order from the omelet station that was part of the buffet. Service was friendly and accommodating about splitting checks and bringing drinks, and the atmosphere was just what you'd expect from a hotel restaurant.

    This is a restaurant inside a hotel. The description on Open Table made it sound great (and also not inside the hotel), but when we got there and saw the lackluster menu and the fact that there were only two couples eating there, we decided to walk out and try something in the Quarter

    We had high hopes for this restaurant after reading the menu online. We were presented with a totally different menu and were informed that it had changed the day before. Being a vegetarian, there was one choice-a caprese sandwich. For dinner, really? They could offer no alternatives nor did they make any suggestions. We had appetizers, a gift from our daughter and son-in-law with 2 drinks. The spinach artichoke dip was warm at best. Needless to say, it was a really unpleasant experience. In this day, one should offer a decent vegetarian choice. And my husband, who thought about having a steak, found there was not the offerings again as on the "old" menu. Overall, we were very, very disappointed.

    Had a birthday dinner with a friend. The food and ambience was good. Our service was fair. Our table number was incorrect, and our food kept going to another table. By the third course of the meal, this was still not correct. Also, we were served cold bread with cold butter; when I requested that the bread was warmed the server indicated that they would comply; however that is the way the bread is served. I would still revisit the venue, however the staff needs to be trained.

    We dined at 5fifty5 for my wife's birthday. The evening started a bit rocky as we were told when we called ahead there was complimentary parking available at the hotel, but when we arrived we were told they were not accepting temporary parking and refused to take us. So we had to park a few blocks away at the Jax lot, which was not a big deal overall. When we arrived at the restaurant we were seated right away and our server was excellent the entire evening. The food was good, but not quite as good as I expected. The appetizers and sides were excellent, but the entree's were below expectations. They had a decent cocktail and wine selection, and the desserts were fantastic. Overall it was a good dining experience.

    My wife and I took a chance and were pleasantly surprised. We didn't realize the restaurant was located in the Marriott hotel on Canal St in New Orleans, which makes it unnoticable unless your specifically looking for it. Anyway, the service was good, atmosphere was very pleasant and the food was exceptional for the price. Most entrees on the menu fall between $18-$24. I had the scallops and she had a dish with spare rib meat and pasta. I forget the name, but it was very good. We'll be back and I would certainly recommend to others.

    I didn't realize this was a restaurant inside a hotel (Marriot). We generally stay away from these because they're overpriced and typically lower quality. This is exactly what we found at 5Fifty5. The crab cake appetizer was excellent, but overpriced at $12 for 2 cakes. The remainder of the food was so-so. My husband had the shrimp and oyster po-boy for $15 and it was not up to par with several other po-boys we had there in New Orleans for half the price. I had the lobster mac and it was outright awful for $20. Even the coke was overpriced at $3 and tasted terrible. Finally, the service was slow and indifferent. With so many excellent and inexpensive places to eat in New Orleans, do NOT waste your money here

    When we arrived at the restaurant we were told we could not even be seated for 20 minutes because only 3 servers were working. Even though we had made the reservation 30 minutes in advance. We could understand not having enough servers but there were literally only 4 occupied tables in the restaurant, none with more than 5 customers at each table. When we were sat we were immediately greeted but waited 15 more minutes for drinks, and then an hour more for food. We did not leave because we felt that at that time we didn't have many other options besides the Arbys next door (which we almost did leave for when the food finally arrived). The food was delicious, but definitely not worth the terrible management and very poor service.

    Had looked at menu for 5 fifty 5 many times and based on the menu, thought that it might be a good place to eat. I was in NOLA and using my Open Table mobile app, I decided to book a reservation there. When I got to the restaurant I was handed a one page menu by the hostess, and was told that was the only food being offered that night. The menu was not even close to the published menu, and was simply bar food for the most part and like I stated did not even come close to what is represented on their website. I decided to eat somewhere else. The ratings of the food above are false because I did not eat there, however open table requires me to put something.
