    Not your average brunch choices. Everything was superb. One of the most unusual and tasty twists I have ever seen. I will go back and recommend every chance I get.

    Need I say more, soooo good. I was back in town from CA and had to get my fix. The bacon is also the crunchiest and yummiest I've ever had. A must for brunch. The only thing I'd change are the acoustics... For some reason it's always really loud.

    If you're looking for a twist on your typical brunch options, this is the place. Great food and service. Perfect place to catch up with an old friend or a date. I'm sure dinner is just as exceptional! Looking forward to giving dinner a try.

    i have been hearing great things about five points so was excited to try it for brunch... i have to say it was insanely loud in there and our food took a long time to come... the food was good not amazing.. although the mac and cheese stood out as the best dish.... not sure if i would go back because my friend and i couldn't hear each other and we were sitting right next to each other!

    Five Points has a wonderful kitchen, but the din can be almost painful at times. I will recommend, because it's close-by, with decent food, but I will always warn folks about the racket. Fortunately, you can hear shrieking toddlers above the noise.

    I'm a five points bruncher through and through. The menu is broad enough that all who go will be happy and all I it is absolutely delicious. The eggs rancheros are what's kept me going back for 5 years! The staff is very friendly, but they can get very busy..don't worry though, the cocktails are delightful! Try any one of their number of bloody marys or a play on a traditional mimosa called "the Mexican mimosa."

    Five Points is our go-to restaurant in the NoHo neighborhood. Delicious food, friendly service, not too loud, and they always go out of their way to accommodate us -- even when we were a group of 12 celebrating my mother-in-law's birthday.

    We came here for lunch because I find Five Points to have three things important in a lunch spot, varied menu, timely service and excellent value for the price. Everyone found multiple items to order, the service was spot on without hovering and the value was terrific. This is a go-to spot in this hood.

    We went to Five Points prior to seeing a show at the Public Theater up the street. Every aspect of our visit was exceptional: the pleasant and efficient hostess; the charming and helpful waiter; the delicious food; the attention to our time constraints without being obtrusive -- all perfectly handled. I cannot wait to return.

    Have been here several times for brunch. It's always very good. Love their eggs benedict, but this time the spinach was very spicy so I couldn't eat it. Everything else was top drawer and service and ambiance is always pleasant. Would recommend highly for Saturday/Sunday brunch. We must have hit a good weekend because at 11:00 the Saturday we were there it was practically deserted. A highly unlikely occurrence!

    Arrived early, party of three guys, decided to wait at the bar and sample the Happy Hour specials @ $5. apiece. I had a lavendar gimlet, new and different, and delicious. Everything was roses from that point on. We had a great time and the service was easy-going and prompt.

    We arrived at 1:30 on a Tuesday for a leisurely birthday lunch. It was not a busy time so we had our choice of tables, inside or out on the sidewalk. The staff was relaxed and friendly. Our server really knew her stuff and made great recommendations. We each had the three-course, prix-fix lunch. The food was fresh and delicious, and our server put a birthday candle in my friend's dessert. We lingered as long as we wanted and never once were made to feel as though we had overstayed our welcome. It's fine food in a casual atmosphere -- I absolutely will be back!

    WOW. Breakfast at it's very best. Huevos Rancheros was unique, and delicious. My dining partners had the sausage eggs bendict- and frankly , they could not have been more pleased. The latte was more than one of the best I have ever had...and do save room for the Churros and chocolate. The bloody mary has set an all new bar forever for all at the table!

    I went to Five Points with 3 friends as a Farewell get-together for one of us. To begin with, their food was all wonderful. Nicely presented, fair amount, and very tasty! What we also loved about this place was that no one rushed us but were really accommodating. It could be because it was Wednesday night, but no feeling of rushed nor hustled - just truly relaxing dining experience it was. I would highly recommend this place for a lovely get together with friends especially during the weekdays. Lovely decors and lighting, not too noisy but very calming place to have great meal and time.

    My husband and I are not the usual foodies, but we enjoy good food! The first time we ate here was because his kids wanted to give us a dinner there as our 1st anniversary gift. We have repeated that every year since, and when we told the staff it was our annual anniversary gift, they were specially attentive and gracious. Thank you!

    A return to Five Points for four midtown residents made for a pleasant Saturday night get together. As always, the American-themed menu gave us plenty to choose from, and the service continues to be friendly and attentive. And when the wine we chose from the list turned out to be unavailable, the waiter recommended another compatible choice that was a few dollars LESS than our original selection. Score one for honesty and a genuine willingness to accommodate the diner. We will definitely be back!

    I wanted to book somewhere special, I had a few recommendations from some friends who live in Hoboken.I decided on the five points as it seemed liked the best.When I made the online reservation I happened to mention that it was a special dinner for our anniversary as I was hoping to get a nice table. When we arrived we were welcomed and seated in a good spot,we were given a glass of prossecco to celebrate- this was a lovely surprise and unexpected.The staff were very lovely and the food was fantastic, we really enjoyed our experience and will definitely recommend it to.If we return to NY we will be sure to eat there again We were in NY for 10 days and ate at various places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Five points was the best by far.
