- WARNING DARK PARKING LOT!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/17/2014We 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!
- Oustanding Meal every timeislandbreezelivingDined on 11/16/2014Five 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 11/10/2014Five was great. Good, friendly, and prompt service, great food. It was a little loud, but we were very glad we went.Special Features:
- Outstanding local restaurantTheHubVIPDined on 11/8/2014I've always enjoyed the 5 restaurant. My wife and I had dinner there this past Saturday night. My wife had the chilean sea bass and I had the veal Saltimbocca. Both dishes were fantastic. Service was top notch as always.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- DinnerdisappointedDined on 10/16/2014Don't wish to do a review, just to know that we will not return to five restaurant because of the noise in the bar.Special Features:
- Good try, but not quite there yetmbinlbDined on 10/7/2014Service 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.Special Features:
- InconsistentJamesVIPDined on 10/4/2014We 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.Special Features:
- OutstandingCyna922Dined on 10/2/2014FIVE is our go to place for celebrations as well as a drink after work or to meet friends for dinner. The food never disappoints and the staff is always attentive while the owner chats with diners.Special Features:
- Perfect neighborRickRVIPDined on 9/23/2014Five is literally 2 blocks from my home. Am I lucky. My wife and I love this place. Always friendly staff and the owner stops by our table to chat. Great food, always consistent never a bad experience. The Chilean Sea bass is out of this world.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dinner experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 9/14/2014Temperature was too cold for comfort. Very noisy. Food was good. Service was nice.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food bad serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 9/6/2014While 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.Special Features:
- Great food and service.Aly1Dined on 9/6/2014Dinner was excellent. We sat in the back room and it was busy with parties but the staff provided great service due to teamwork.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great night out2onHoneymoonDined on 8/29/2014My husband and I had a great dinner and great service at Five. A little loud on a Friday night with the bar noise carrying through the restaurant, but will not stop us from dining at Five again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great RestaurantpristinezDined on 8/24/2014I absolutely love this restaurant. The atmosphere is so lovely. It's a beautiful place, the prices are affordable and the food is just perfect.

- Expensive for what you getIcancookDined on 7/29/2014The waiter was nice but the hostess had attitude. For the price I would rather go to Flemings or Campagnes. I could have BBQ a better steak and my wife said I could cook the Chilean Seabass better.Special Features:

- Do Over NightDisappointedDined on 7/12/2014We 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.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 7/10/2014Tried "Five" again for dinner. Banquette seating for two. Very close. Too close. Noise from the bar was overwhelming. Service was efficient. Lobster ravioli was bland. Anniversary night was disappointing. Wouldn't go there for dinner again. 3 strikes you're out!Special Features:
- Never disappointed!dontmakemecookDined on 7/8/2014We went to Five for a Girls Night Birthday dinner. Service was awesome, and the food was amazing! Everything from appetizers to dessert, and of course the wine!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Worth a repeat visitFreudianslipDined on 6/18/20145 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food, great service, too loudBeanoCanEatDined on 6/17/2014The 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 7Special Features:

Well, Italian food is a staple in the east coast but i visit Five due to one of the few Italina cuisines in Fresno. It doe snot disappoint. 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.Special Features:
- Cant Eat there Enough!MitchVIPDined on 5/7/2014The food is so great, i could eat there everyday and never get enough, if your in town visiting or live near Fresno, you have to try it!Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/3/2014We, 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.

- Fantastic Five!!OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 2/14/2014This place was awesome!!! Fantastic food, service & atmosphere!!! We are definitely coming back for more than Valentines Day!!!Special Features:
- Valentines DinnerBosox09Dined on 2/14/2014Had 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
