  • WARNING DARK PARKING LOT!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/17/2014
    We went here for a company dinner and in the two hours we were there had two vehicles close to the restaurant broken in to. Thousands of dollars worth of stuff was stolen and management showed no compassion or sympathy. After talking to other people in the area we discovered this had happened to others visiting 5 in the past several weeks. You can have the best food in the city but if you are having a problem with theft and do not warn your clientele you are going to loose business. The parking lot is dark and there was no security. We will not be returning!

    Five has become a standard with our family and friends. Pat does a great job making you feel like you are in his home instead of his restaurant. He always comes out when he is there to meet the guests and makes sure the meal is as expected. The wait staff is outstanding, and being in the industry, I am constantly watching all facets of service. Five is always outstanding as a "team" approach makes sure your table is always tended. The food is the final factor that makes this a come back point for us each time we want a special meal out in Fresno. Always an enjoyable affair.

    Service was excellent as was the decor/ambiance----The meal was artistically/attractively arranged,but the taste didn't live up to it. Way average. Was hoping/expecting a very good meal, ended up with so-so. Wine list had very good selection with various price ranges--appreciated it.

    We dined at the Five a few weeks and I had the filet then and it was one of the best I've had in Fresno. This past week end we went back and even though the prices are a bit steep, I was looking forward to another excellent filet. This time the meat was not nearly as good and the potatoes not as tasty. The outside was a bit tough and the inside not very flavorful. It would have helped to have some seasoning, but there wasn't even salt on the table, which seems to be the thing at some upscale restaurants. For the money there are other places in the neighborhood where I feel I get a much better value. The waiters and staff are very attentive though.

    While the food was prepared wonderfully, the service was a complete let down. Our waiter was quite rude and abrupt, not even asking if we would like appetizers or wine, etc. our appetizer was take from us without it being finished. Dinner was even worse. In the span of a minute, we were approached by three different bussers asking to clear our plates when we had half our meal remaining. My boyfriends drink was taken even though he had half left. We were very rushed and felt like we had to eat fast and leave quickly. I loved the food but probably not return because of the service.

    Disappointed
    Dined on 7/12/2014
    We went to Five this past Saturday on a long overdue date night. It had been almost a year since my husband and I had gone out without our children. I was hoping for a romantic evening. Instead, we walked into a very loud bar scene. When seated, we were seated very close to other couples whose conversations were so audible as we were desperately trying to hear each other's words. The service was great and the food was okay. However, I would not choose this restaurant again for a date. Sadly, a chain restaurant could have done better.

    5 is a great Italian restaurant that could have easily been in San Francisco along with the best. Service was good. Waiters were attentive without being nosy. Food presentation was superb, and pairing was well-thought-out. Nice wine. Good coffee. Great desserts. We will be back. Saw a little micro-managing, which should not be noticeable, but it did not take away from our enjoyment of the evening.

    Dined on 6/17/2014
    The food was above average, but not great. The portions were very generous. I had the coconut shrimp appetizer which was excellent. My entree was veal scallopini, and it was just okay. The sauce was a bit watery and bland. The veal itself was tender. My wife had the Farfalle Monte Rosa and enjoyed it. Huge portion with enough left over to take home for a second meal. Bread was served beforehand with an olive tampenade. They also had a very good wine list, and 7 or 8 beers on tap. Service was outstanding; very polite and attentive. My only complaint was one bus staff member who reached right across my wife's face (as she was talking to me) to take away her bread plate, without so much as an 'excuse me'. It was very LOUD as well. Overall, a 7

I usually get the lobster ravioli and it is one of the best lobster ravioli dishes i have tasted. The atmosphere is good with a good wine selection.

    We, a family of five, reserved a table at 7 pm through Open Table. We came to the restaurant at 6.50 pm, and we were seated at the worst table in the restaurant, a table that is not even there on a daily basis. We asked for another table, because it was so loud in there, and everybody had to pass our table to get in and out of the different rooms. We were told, it would take about 10 minutes to seat us somewhere else, and we waited more than an hour.

    Had Valentines dinner with my wife and had a mixed experience. The staff was excellent but the restaurant was set up where you were way to close to the other customers. They tried to cram as many people as possible for dinner. You could hear everything your neighbors were saying and there was zero privacy. The menu was limited but had many options which were very good. The food was very good and service was excellent. Maybe next time try not to cram so many people into the restaurant at one time.
