    Caesar salad and escargot were both great. Escargot has a touch of Pernod that makes a big difference. Pasta Bolognese was fantastic. Tenderloin was very good not great. Steak is cut in half lengthwise which makes it seem tough when you cut it. However it is tender. I understand it is his presentation and the explanation is that he puts truffle butter between the slices to get the taste in the meat. However the truffle butter portion is small and not that Truffley ( word?) So it doesn't add that much to the dish. Sides of Faro (Bulgar wheat) and a tiny portion of onions and mushrooms cooked together doesn't add much. Needs a rethink on the sides

    The service was excellent- our waitress was very attentive and the food was very good. The only problem we had was that although I had asked about wheelchair access prior to our visit, the restaurant is not really accessible- my brother-in-law was able to get my husband into the restaurant but if he had not been there we would have had to cancel our visit.

    When we went, there were several tables with at least 10 senior citizens each. They were very loud and their voices carried throughout the room making it hard for us to hear at our table. The appetizers were quite good but the dinners were medium, not at all memorable. Not sure we will return

    The Five O remains one of the best restaurants in Ogunquit. My husband and I returned there on 9/3/14 (our last time there was 4 years ago) and we absolutely enjoyed our experience. Our meal was fabulous, cocktails were too, and our server was spot on. While there are restaurants in town with better views, the Five O should be on everyone "must go to" list while in Ogunquit.

    We had planned on spending our anniversary dinner at 5-0 Shore but unfortunately, after a 60 minute wait from taking our dinner orders, our food had still not arrived. So we settled up our drink orders and left. Samantha, our waitress did apologize and said "it was not her fault" and blamed it on the chef. She was rude from the beginning and not helpful with our food choices at all. We were disappointed that no one cared we were leaving. That is the worst customer service we have ever experienced and we will never go back!

    This is a great restaurant on Shore road. We sat at table # 5 which is a great view for people watching. Lisa was our server and is wonderful. Suggestion is to review the dessert menus prior to ordering because there are a couple of great items on the menus that require extra 10-15 minutes. That way you can advise your server up front and will not have to wait the extra time. Our main entrees were the gulf of Maine(Chef special fish of the day) and the Orecchiette (home made chicken sausage etc). Both were excellent. They also have a great Tapas menus of which we tried 2(fried oysters and Artichoke Arancini with whipped goat cheese). They are excellent. We decided our next trip we may just stick to the tapas for something different.

    My wife and I ordered different dishes that we have in the past and they were spectacular. We chose five of the small plates...each one was really good. The Bolognese was delicious. Since we are Italian we usually do not order pasta out. I'm glad we did. I had the fish special and that was great too. When you are in Ogunquit, Five-O is a must.

    Maine, especially Portland, has some outstanding restaurants and this one fits the bill. Our server was attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable of both the menu and wine list. Branzini which is hard to find on any menu was the best I have ever had. Mussels were prepared in a tasty not over powerful sauce. Tried the dessert sampler which was a fun way to end the evening. Only complaint was the noise level, but on a weekend in Ogunquit, that is the normal.

    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!

    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
