    The atmosphere, food and service were great. I do not mind paying a high price for a great experience, but overall there was nothing that special that warranted the prices being charged. I would recommend it to friends for a special occasion, but would also let them know it is expensive for what you get.

    All meals were wonderful, tasty and healthy options - perfectly cooked fish and vegetables, and the tree top/lake view is a joy but we won't go back because it was so difficult to hold a conversation inside the restaurant. We skipped the Happy Hour because the sound level in the bar was even higher.

    This has been one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood for long time. However, this time it was a put down in different aspects. Our table server and the hostess were pretty rude, kind of disrespectful when we complained about some actions that we observed from the guys cooking (our table was right in front of the kitchen/cooking area). We were never referred to the restaurant manager neither received a comment that our complain was going to be submitted to upper management. Some of the guys cooking had beard uncovered and touching it while preparing food dishes. The special of the night was not available even when the server came to offer it. It was pretty disappointing this time.

    We visit from Maui Hawaii several times a year. Five Spice Seafood is an absolute must. It is always our best dining experience in Portland area. Our server Luke was as always superb! You have to find this place, they do not advertise much or at all. Word of mouth does the trick it was packed on a Saturday night. Find it, go there and enjoy!

    Very good food. Excellent waiter. Great wines. If only the receptionist would care a bit more. Called the day of and explained our dinner was a very special birthday (81st). Strongly requested outside table. Said they would try. Was on time for reservation, no attempt to get us outside. Not sure they cared. Very disappointed birthday mom. Great waiter helped salvage the evening. But there are plenty of other great places who understand how to treat customers if they want them to be regulars. Especially given the premium prices.

  • Overpriced, but it's Lake Oswego

    Dined on 8/31/2014
    Since it's the area, I guess the prices shouldn't be too surprising. I expected, seeing the menu online, that it would be at least a little more high end. I was disappointed that, like many restaurants that claim to be 'fine dining', they don't offer black napkins for diners wearing dark clothing. I left with white napkin bits all over my dress, which was distracting for the rest of the evening. The spring rolls had a nice flavor, but the texture was disjointed. The cheese plate was very well sized. The tuna had a wonderful flavor and texture. The sturgeon was perfectly done. The service was nice.

    We enjoy going to Five Spice not only for the atmosphere but for the wonderful service by Johnathan and the awesome food! Your staff is truly doing a great job. The weather was just perfect for dining on the upper patio and overlooking the lake. Love the ipad in helping us decide which wine to drink and the servers knowledge always helps pick the right one to compliment our Halibut, Steelhead or Sturgeon. Thanks for making another dining experience memorable!

    Paying for atmosphere as the view was nice and outdoor seating was well done but food was nothing special for the price. Don't forget your designer clothing - definitely a high end tourist area and neighborhood concerned about how you fit in!

    i made a reservation on Open Table with 2 requests or acknowledgements. though we were seated with a lake view (one request), the hostess didn't seem to reference it & was simply pleased that she had one available. the service was perfunctory. the food was quite good & pleasing to look at. the waiter didn't reference the second request, which was to address or recognize a birthday in the party. though i would recommend the restaurant for the food, it would be with the warning of the pricey menu & the lack of professionalism in the staff. if you want a relaxed atmosphere & a pleasent meal, this would be the perfect place to show you are not concerned about expenses.

    There were four of us and we all ordered something different and everyone loved there meals. Waiter was nice and have good recommendations. My only complaint was I had guests in from out of town and I requested to sit outside and when we got there the hostess was very rude in saying "I just sat my last four top (which only had two people at the table) and there are only two tops left...it's first come first serve..." Honestly we would have stayed and drank longer if we would have been seated outside.

    We shared a salad that was big enough for two, but pretty simple. Our entres of filet mignon and lobster tails were excellent. Our bottle of wine (one of the least expensive) brought the total to about $125 (before tip). Our service was very good and we enjoyed the view from the deck.

    The server was very pleasant, but also not very "professional." He was forgetful and couldn't pronounce the names of some of the North American wines, one of which he brought to our table that was not the one I ordered. He essentially took our orders and opened the wine. Everything else was done by others. The food was average at best. My stuffed trout was virtually tasteless, as was the crab cakes and salad that others had. The prices were way too high, especially for the wines. I had a nice time, but that was mainly due to the people I was with. Nobody complained. We were enjoying each others' company and the food was a distant second to that. There are many really good restaurants in our area that serve great food and charge far less.

    Was looking forward to our dinner after reading reviews and checking out their menu. There were 4 of us, we brought our own wine (and they were nice enough not to charge a cork fee), and our bill was $390 before tip. We all did have apps, 3 had salad, and 4 entrees and no dessert or other added cocktails. But again, I will stress that the food was outstanding and we will go back, but only for special occasion at that price.

    This is our second time to Five spice and the food was just as good as the first time. The service here could be a little better and I think part of that is the waiters make all there own drink orders. We think it would be very beneficial to hire a bar tender.

    When I booked the reservation for 12, a few people in the party questioned the choice--why not a better known Portland hot spot? By mid-evening, those doubters were remarking Fivespice as the "find" of the year. By the end of the evening, people were considering how they'd may time to come back and maybe dine on the balcony next time. We had a blast as we just ordered "every thing on the left side of the menu, sans the soup." Everything was delicious, and the wine was fantastic. Thanks for a great evening with a perfect attitude from the waiter, who was funny, easy-going, and efficient.

    What a marvelous way to showcase our lovely town! We hosted a group of folks here to do a parish event. They hailed from the Midwest and from the South. To a person, each and everyone raved about the incredible fish, as well as about the salads and the yummy desserts. The table, with its lazy-susan, worked perfectly for sharing wine, bread, and "tastes". Our waiter was absolutely genius! The plates were delivered in a leisurely manner. The water glasses were "magically" always filled! Cudos to one and all!! Yes, the Saturday event was also a success! Lunch Saturday---at the Blast Burger, of course!!

    When restaurants put great emphasis on food and wine, why don't they attend to noise levels? Fivespices has mostly hard surfaces in an open floor plan. The only quiet tables are outside. Otherwise the food was excellent, and the views are great from some tables. The waitress tried hard to accommodate our desire to hear each other but you can't fight badly executed interior design. She and the hostess weren't allowed to seat our party of five at an outside table for four. As people age it becomes harder to hear through ambient noise and clatter. My hearing is assisted with hearing aids but my friends had similar problems. I would love to go back but would choose almost anyplace else because good conversation accompanies fine dining.
