Staff was great. I had steak
Staff was great. I had steak and my wife had salmon, both dishes were excellent.
The chairs were a bit soiled but overall a nice place.

The Kansas City strip was
The Kansas City strip was very, very good. A very nice Shiraz by the glass. All started by a excellent very dry martini. I'll be back.

We enjoyed the food at this
We enjoyed the food at this restarant as much as anywhere. We were in New Orleans this past weekend and went to 5 fifty 5, G.W. Fins, and Bayona for dinners. 5 fifty 5's food was fantastic. I got the salmon and my husband got the steak and we both got their Derby pie with cinnamon ice cream (this is probably one of the best desserts we have had ever). We just wanted to recommend them because it is a bit hard to find and not very obvious to those walking on the streets in the French quarter. You will not be disappointed here..

Good food and service!
The lack of people eating in this restaurant is a simple reason
....it is a hotel restaurant in New Orleans. People are staying here to party, enjoy and eat at New Orleans' most famous restaurants. Truth is...the food is really good...not gourmet but really good. A basket of fresh breads made onsite began our meal. Our sever was a very nice lady who checked on us several times. Our crab cakes were some of the best I've ever eaten...light, all crab (no bread here), and a spicy sauce to compliment not overpower. The kids' meals were large portions and good. I had the chicken and caramelized onion quesadillas with big chunks of chicken. My husband had the red beans, rice and sausage. Both big servings and very good. I would definitely return

Food quality was very good
Food quality was very good and unexpected find for a hotel restaurant. Worthy of another visit. Don't pass because of the location.

5fifty5 has a nice ambiance
5fifty5 has a nice ambiance for an intimate, romantic dinner! The food is excellent and the waiter can recommend a good wine from their long list! Their presentation is beautiful with ample food for men. We enjoyed this restaurant!

The service was excellent
The service was excellent our waiter was very helpful in assisting us with our meals. We were very surprised to find the restaurant empty. It was a great place and we will be back on our next visit to New Orleans.

Convenient and reasonable
Had the redfish and ceasar salad. Very well prepared and presented. Service was prompt and courteous. Prices moderate and good value. Not anything special but for a restaurant in a business class hotel, quite acceptable for a quick meal with a colleague. Probably not client level, though.

Great made-to-order omelettes with items like crab, shrimp & even crawfish. Numerous other options are on the buffet including a great meat & cheese selection with fresh salami, smoked salmon & salmon-pastrami which was surprisingly good! Also endless coffee, juice or champagne mimosas are included!

Father's Day Lunch
My family took my father to 5 fifty 5 for lunch on Father's Day. The hostess was very pleasant. Every staff member that we passed or who passed us wished my dad a happy Father's Day. All of the food that was brought to our table was hot and delicious! It was an all around great experience. We will definitely be back.

Quiet at 555
555 was a good, quiet restaurant. We took part in their summer sizzling menu and it was great. My only drawback is I waited for about 5 mins for a hostess and the restaurant was empty. A gentlemen eventually came to seat us, that same person also doubled as our waiter. HE WAS GREAT! If it wasnt for him U wouldve given a lower service rating.

Tried this place for dinner.
Tried this place for dinner. Despite it being Friday night, there were very few customers even though the hotel lobby was hopping. The food was good but there is not a lot of choices of entrees. The outstanding feature really was the service. The waitstaff were very attentive and helpful and we had two kids as well. We definitely enjoyed the place because of them and would recommend.

My wife and I went to 5 Fifty % to celebrate our 44th Anniversary. I had read reviews that Friday evenings were very quiet even though the lobby was crowded. We found the restaurant to be a real gem. It was not very crowded and the nosie level was very low. The space is however expansive and I would suspect a higher noise level when there is a larger crowd. Ou waitress was as professional and courteous and helpful as any I have found in New Orleans. We are natives and this was our first time dining at 5 Fifty 5 but it will not be our last. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great meal for a special ocassion.

Fantastic! Large pieces of Lobster, good portion size, bread before dinner. Not very crowded, waitress was sweet. Would not make this an every time stop, but if I'm craving the mac I would definitely return

The food was very good. We were tired and not in the mood to leave the hotel. The restaurant was nothing spectacular, but good food, reasonably priced with courteous service.

Better than most hotel restaurants.
Food was excellent, service not so much. Decor is pretty much that of a hotel restaurant. Would go back for the food.
