    The menu was nice, veered toward foodie level and was reasonably priced. The scallops were excellent and the house salad was delicious. Two diners got the filet mignon - one was cooked beautifully, the other a little dry ad overcooked both ordered medium rare. The potato dish that came with the filet would have been better if it had not been coated and deep fried. Overall this restaurant was a pleasant surprise and we would go back again.

    Went to 5ive for a fixed price, Valentine's day dinner for two. On the plus side: the food was good, not great. On the negative side, the ambiance is VERY poor for what we thought would be a fine restaurant. For what should have been a special event: (1) lights were on very high for the entire time we dined at 5ive, (2) there were no tablecloths on what appeared to be inexpensive, laminated tabletops, and (3) the restaurant added a 20% gratuity to the bill without prior warning. I don't mind paying top dollar for a great dinner and service, we but got neither. We won't return.

  • Good Start to the New Year
    Quiltercb
    Dined on 12/31/2012
    The evening at 5ive was mixed. First of all the atmosphere was great. To add to the New Year's Eve festivities, there were horns and hats on the table and a champagne toast to start out. The staff went out of their way to make sure they catered to our food allergies, which was greatly appreciated. The service was friendly and excellent. The food was a mixture, however. Some items were great and some not so much. Examples are the rosti potatoes and the bread pudding. But that was our taste, and it doesn't mean someone else didn't rave about these dishes. We will go back to sample more.

    lclikefoodVIP
    Dined on 12/12/2012
    We had a business lunch there and my pork belly panini was inedible. I literally couldn't bite nor cut through the pork belly pieces; I'm not sure what was wrong with it. By the time the waitress returned (it took a little while), we had to return to work, so I couldn't wait for a new lunch. She was great about packing up a club sandwich for me to take home (and that was good). I didn't pick up the bill, so I don't know whether we were charged for the make up sandwich. I had been there for dinner a few years ago and had enjoyed it.

    Greeted on arrival, shown into the dining room to a space where there was no table, left in the lurch while the hostess disappeared. Server seen hoisting a table through the dining room and then bringing chairs. Not a great start, but it got worse. So loud it was difficult to hear our own conversation. Server asks for drink orders. So loud she gets "manhattan" confused with "Mad Hatter". Awkward. Asked for a soft drink during dinner. It came just as table being cleared, after a reminder. Wife's fish was dry at edges, other orders were pretty good. Will try again when outdoor patio is open, maybe.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/24/2012
    We ate at 5ive previously and found the food exceptional, the staff attentive, but not intrusive, and the atmosphere very enjoyable. We spoke highly of our experiences so much our son chose to celebrate his birthday at 5ive. Unfortunately, this experience did not match our previous experiences. The entrees were good, but bordered on bland -- the one exception was the feta/artichoke dip. It was excellent. Our waiter's inexperience was complicated by his unfamiliarity of a newly introduced menu. The quiet intimate atmosphere worked well for our family celebration, but overall we were merely satisfied.

  • The best steak and lobster
    GandEsmom
    Dined on 11/22/2012
    The best steak and lobster tail my husband has EVER had. My daughter &i I chose turkey because it was Thanksgiving. It was moist and the flavor was good. The stuffing was unique, and I enjoyed it, but my 8-year-old didn't like it. Mine came with grilled brussel sprouts, which were delicious. The pasta "kisses" dish our 11-year-old ordered was good, but nothing special other than the shape of the noodles. The room was uncomfortably chilly, but the staff turned it up a little after I put my husband's suit jacket on. The Inn at St. John where 5ive is located is exceptionally beautiful, and it made for a wonderful family Thanksgiving celebration location. Our server was wonderful a well.

    Just about what one would expect from hotel dining in a mid-sized property. High tables in bar area with televisions, through to a room with four tops and booths. Enough food choices to find something to satisfy. Place was empty when we were there. Salad was nothing special, and fish was cooked properly.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    The food was great, the server was very kind. There were only two things that I didn't care for. The first was the noise from the bar, granted it was a Friday night, it was still a little too noisy. Another thing that annoyed me was the fact that I had to remind my server about my drink order, I would love to have my glass of wine before I receive my first course. Other than that, the overall experience was very good.

    I did order a top of the line dinner . Food was less than mediocre. Nothing was exceptional. Macoroni came out fully cold. It was subtracted. Steak was OK but cold not cold, not warm and cool, Asparagus was tweaked. Old people waited for ages, much more than I did. Tweakers abounded. This is not a good place to have a fine dining experience. I won't be here again.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at 5ive. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. The five mushroom soup was amazing, I could have eaten than for dinner and been happy. They have a great selection of Michigan beers to choose from and a very diverse wine list. I had trouble picking my dinner because there were several to choose from that sounded good. The outdoor patio is very nice, but a bit noisy due to the building's A/C system being nearby. It makes it a bit challenging to hear your dinner guest, but it's not awful.

    Food was good. However, service was very poor. We ordered an appetizer which was totally forgotten until after the arrival of our entree, when we had to ask for it. We had also ordered a dessert which was AGAIN forgotten until we had to again ask for it. This was after we had finished our cup of coffee. Two orders forgotten in one evening kind of spoiled it for us.

    Went there at 5:30 p.m. on a Monday. The place was empty, possibly because there were few bookings at the hotel over the July 4 week. Had a fine time with my wife, but it was eerie being the only people in the restaurant or bar. Service was excellent, possibly because the staff had no one else to take care of.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/6/2012
    It was my husband's birthday (as I included in the Open Table reservation). Absolutely nothing was done to recognize this and when I asked, the waiter said they do nothing. Was surprised and usually expect a more creative waiter who would comp at least some ice tea at a place with higher prices. Not happy when while we were eating dinner and my husband was not done, the waiter plopped a couple dessert menus down in front of my mother and me. Not happy. When my husband's dish was cleared, he did not give him a dessert menu. We never ordered another thing after the initial menus were put down.

    The food was exceptional and we were very satisfied with everything else _ EXCEPT, there was no entertainment, as there was in the previous year. The singer, Dwayne, was wonderful and we especially looked forward to doing a little dancing to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were VERY disappointed to find out that because of budget cuts, Dwayne was let go. BIG MISTAKE! We may not return, even though the food was wonderful. We probably would not go there to celebrate a special event in the future.
