    Five-0 is always on our short list of dining options when we are in Ogunquit, but we haven't been in a few years. We were glad that we went this year. Food was very tasty overall. Almost passed on the lobster because of the quinoa but it worked and was delicious unlike the yellowfin which the bok Choy/turnip mix was an odd combo and not as successful in our opinion. We loved our apps and the dessert sampler with tiny renditions of their offerings. Great when you just want a little something sweet to finish. Service spot on. We'll be back!

    We thoroughly enjoyed the selection of food and drinks Five-O offers! The food was fresh and top quality. A great place for both, foodies or any one willing to step out of the box and try an all around decadent meal! We were also pleased with the standout service by our server, Sammy. She was knowledgable and gave us spot on recommendations throughout the entire evening. We are already talking about our next visit to Ogonquit, and Five-O is at the top of the list! Thank you for a very enjoyable evening!!

    Delicious all around! Love the tapas, crudo, oysters, cheeses, mushroom ragout: outstanding. The cod cakes are still a little dense. We ordered the chicken (melt in our mouths) & lobster en croute this time, much too much truffle oil (a little goes a long way) to give the full 5 stars. The cocktails were cold & fresh, so good! Thank you for the delightful window table this time. We'll be back!

    Very welcoming and friendly staff. The food was everything the reviews say! We had the small plates to start. The mushroom and leek ragu was delicious as was the fried oysters and artichoke aranicini. For entrees we had the tuna and chicken. Both were seasoned and cooked to perfection. For desert we had the blueberry Tar c homemade ice cream was the perfect end to a wonderful dinner. Excellent wine list

    Picked this place based on other reviews on yelp. Got what was expected... good food, good service, and perfect for date night to the playhouse. We were there 2 hours before the show with a reservation. Ample seating available at 6 PM on a Saturday where no reservation seemed to be needed. Servers were VERY attentive. Food service was perfect with the exception of dessert. The kitchen must have been RIDICULOUSLY backed up. We specifically decided NOT to order the dessert stating requires 10 min to cook, and it still to 25 min a mediocre dessert. Overall, I would definitely recommend five 0 for dinner. We ordered the 3 piece app ( chicken pate, fried pickles and a cheese). We ordered the gnocchi and spicy lobster pasta. Both were A+

    I made reservations in early July for August and asked for a table with a view because it's my husband's birthday. When my husband and I were seated we DID in fact get a table with a view. A VIEW of the kitchen even though there were tables up front by the window. Twice staff coming out of the kitchen bumped into the menus on the table, once splashing my drink onto my bread plate. Our waitress finally took our order 35 minutes after we were seated although it wasnt her fault because she had 5 tables seated within a few minutes of each other.She came rushing by on her way into the kitchen asking how the chowder was but didnt even pause for our answer. Next year we will go back to Angellinas for the great food, service, and warm atmosphere

    A very nice dining experience. Excellent menu variety. Outstanding food. Tough call between "Gulf of Maine" and "Maine Lobster" entrees. Wanted both. Chose latter. Yum. Attentive but not fawning service. Crying infants and shrieking very young children detracted from the ambiance. Would return in a heartbeat for the food. Place diners with infants and small kids in a separate room to foster better ambiance in the main dining room?

    Five-O has become one of our standards over the past few years when visiting Ogunquit. The menu stays fresh and creative. We have been lucky enough to have the same great server for the past 3 years and now we just say "feed us". We pick the wine from a respectable list and she brings the food. They are great about splitting plates so we can sample as many things as possible.

    We've walked by 5-0 on many trips to Ogunquit and finally decided to try it. It was memorable only for its shortcomings - bartenders were pretentious and snotty with no reason to be other than being "full of themselves". The cocktail list was humdrum. We were seated in the dining room right next to a really loud table with several rambunctious teenagers. The service was unspeakably poor. Appetizers appeared before bread (which finally showed up just about the time that entrees arrived). The only good thing about the meal was making the decision not to linger over dessert. If I'm spending that kind of money - I want what I want, good food, good service and pleasant atmosphere. There should be a noise level rating of obnoxiously loud.

    We have a summer home on a lake in Maine and every year, when we put away the charcoal grill and lobster bibs, we make a pilgrimage to Five-O. The food and service are excellent and we love the charm of Ogunquit. This year was no exception. For starters, the young greens salad and pasta bolognese were both spectacular. Our entrees, roasted chicken and the cod special, and the dessert sampler were all excellent. We will be back again and again.

    You can't go wrong here. I would have rated Five - O a 4.5 if possible. We arrived an hour early so we could sit in the bar and have a cocktail before dinner. We decided to order appetizers. The warm on lives as well as the mushroom ragout were delicious. We were promptly seated a few minutes before the reservation time. My husband and I ordered pasta dishes and we each loved what we ordered. The blueberry filled pastry with blueberry sorbet for dessert was delish! Our server was very good. The only area of improvement in our opinion is the wine list. We didn't feel there was a great selection.

    I was a little disappointed overall with my experience at 5-0. The food wasn't anything extraordinary and the service left a lot to be desired. We waited quite a while for the waitress to even come to the table (I had to ask someone else if we could get drinks.) She didn't seem particularly interested in serving us - for example, as soon as I gave my dinner order she turned away, never asking if I wanted anything else (which I did - I also ordered a salad.) The noise level was surprisingly high so it is not an intimate place. All in all it wasn't horrible, but I won't go back nor will I recommend it.

    I'm not one to write reviews, I have worked in several restaurants in the past, and understand a busy Sat night at a restuarant. This had to have been one of the worst dining experiences of my life, and I have eaten here before. The bartender was rude when we ordered our drinks. We were seated 20 min late for our reservation I made weeks ago. The service was so slow, made us wait for drinks and bread. The lobster was ok but not worth the price, the manager said it was 1 1/2 lb lobster, it was just the tail and it was just ok- so NOT worth $40. The steak was ok, over seasoned with salt. Mussels appetizer again unappealing, small mussels. Salad was standard. The manager was rude at the end of our meal when we told him about our experience

    We LOVE Five-O! We ate here nearly a year ago solely based on Open Table recommendations. When in Ogunquit again, we planned a return and this meal was outstanding too. The warm olives from the small plate selections are an absolute favorite....loaded with garlic and deliciousness. My husband had a magnificent heirloom tomato and burrata salad which he felt was worthy of ascension to heaven. I had a delicious, creamy smooth vichyssoise. My entree was a fabulous cod while hubby had tagliatelle with bolognese. Dessert was an ethereal cheesecake and coffee. Our server, Sammy, was the best and the whole experience was a delight. Our only complaint is that Five-0 isn't closer to where we live.

    Right on time with our reservation, we were shown to corner table by a window as we previously requested. Our waitress was exceptional, personable and knowledgeable - assisted us with our wine selection and even helped with a small stain on a white shirt…. We ordered homemade pasta with meat sauce - superb; less successful was the branzini - too thin and slightly overcooked (blackened), I had some suspicion about the absolute freshness of the fish, but it wasn't awful. Excellent pineapple martinis - cool and refreshing, not overly sweet. Parking was a problem, the lot was full and we had to drive around for an available space nearby. We felt that if there is valet parking offered, it should be adequate for the restaurant capacity...

    We went to eat for our 8th wedding anniversary and had a very good experience from the time we arrived till the time we left, our server was very attentive to all of our needs and was very good with her timing. I am not sure her name, we ate on July 22 at 6:30pm. we sat in the back of the room on a corner bench which was nice and romantic for the occasion. The food was very good. The only small complaint was that my Pork Chop was not what I had expected. I was expecting a thick cut and it came out very thin. I ordered it Medium and because of the thickness it came out a bit dry. Over all a very good experience and we will return.

    After driving by Five-O a number of times, we wife and I decided to choose this restaurant for our 7th anniversary while vacationing in Ogunquit. We really loved the atmosphere both inside and out. If it was a little warmer, we probably would've sat outside but we ended up in the dining room which was still nice. We ordered the chowder and muscles for appetizers. The latter was great. Chowder was just okay. My main was a mackerel dish which was just okay. I was expecting a little more based on the description I was provided. My wife had a vegetable dish that had risotto with it, which was also okay. By far the best part of the meal were the muscles. If I were to go back to this restaurant, I'd certainly order another dish.

    Have dined at Five-0 many times and this was the first time this summer. We usually go to their amazing wine dinners held throughout the off-season from September to early June. Our party of four was promptly seated at a table by the wall of windows. We shared some small plates of cheese, arancini and warmed olives while deciding what to order. I had the mussels as an app and roasted chicken for dinner. The mussels were in an artichoke broth and came with two generous slices of grilled bread, ideal for broth dipping. delicious!. The succulent chicken was over grilled asparagus and creamy mushroom risotto. The balance was perfect. Too full for dessert but those looked wonderful. Our server, Nick was attentive and well versed on the menu.
