Very imaginative and delicious preparations.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, but when busyGreat place, but when busy the noise level inside is excessive...not a place for that quiet dinner.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place.My husband had the halibut, best meal he ever had, he said. I had the sturgeon, delicious. My daughter and her friend had spring rolls, bbq riba and the cheese plate, great. I had a margaritta, delicious. Server was great, overall, I would Highly recomend this place!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMdate nightThe menue was interesting with a good variety of seafood, lamb, and of course beef & chicken too. The selection of appetizers was good too. We ended up ordering a few, crab cakes (excellent by the way), and a cheese platter. After that, we decided that sharing the lobster entre' would be sufficient as it was actually two fair sized tails, which again were cooked to perfection.
The service was prompt & plesant, and prices reasonable. Even with a few cocktails each, our total bill came to just $88. I found with this to be very reasonable for all that was consumed, and considering the location, senic view, and ambience of the place.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ChoiceGreat Seafood restaurant! I would love to eat here more often. Thank you so much!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our "go to" placeThis is our "go to" place for Lake O dining. Always reliable, great food and service. Even out of town guest request that we visit there.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice spot, but spendyThe price point is a little high. We probably won't be back for awhile due to the high prices. The food was good. We told our server that we were there for a birthday and he served us a plate with four candles stuck to the plate for my husband to blow out at the end of the evening. I recommend that your servers skip this, it came off as pretty tacky. Serve a complimentary scoop of icecream or brownie or SOMETHING, but not a plate with four candles stuck to it. We got a laugh out of it but left thinking that it was poor judgement to do it. Skip it entirely if there isn't a freebie for a bday patron. It's surprising to not get a freebie after springing for such an expensive meal.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid service great mealHad a very nice meal at Five Spice. Great wine selection with very good recomendation from server. Oyster shooters were fabulous and my steelhead was cooked to perfection. Will definitely return.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was another deliciousThis was another delicious meal with good friends. The Spicy Seafood stew was delicious as was the Halibut special that nite.
Loved the Mushroom soup, and the Trio of Tartars as appetizers. Beautiful live guitar music was just right.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst dateI liked everything except that it took a very long time for the waiter to take our order.
