Diner Reviews
  • "Six of us went to Five 0 Three on Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. We sat outside on the patio and listened to the band play as we ate our delicious dinner. Our waiter was outstanding and very engaging. Not a single criticism. All six of us were extremely impressed."

  • "There were five of us, each gave high marks for the attentive service, and most of all , the quality of your menu. We had steak, lamb and chicken. My wife who usually bemoans her choices at restaurant was delighted and pleased. I surveyed every one, they all agreed that their meals were outstanding! Repeat visits are a must. The word is out to friends and family. Great to know that such a jewel exists in our neighborhood!"

  • "The online reservation was fine, however the food was substandard and very over priced. Service was very good and our waitress went out of her way to be accommodating. We enjoyed the wine list and well drinks especially the "muy caliente margarita.""

  • "This was our first time dining at the 503 and it will not be our last. The service was fantastic. Very attentive and knowledgeable staff. I had the paella. It was wonderful. My husband had the steak Frites. Not a bite left on our plates. Looking forward to going there again"

  • "We went for a later dinner, and considering this is located in a small shopping center, I did not expect too much. Was I wrong! We were greeted warmly, had a cozy booth for two, and the server was attentive but not one of those "Hi my name is so-and-so" people. What we really appreciated was that the food was properly spaced, the timing was right. There was no feeling hurried through courses and we got to savor and linger over our entrees. The food was spectacular and cooked to perfection. Live music was a nice touch and not overpowering the conversation. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Been here multiple times. Food was decent as always but the menu has become stagnent. Our table of 4 ordered multiple drinks, salads, and entrees. A waitress gave us desert menus but we had a birthday cake at home so we told her we didn't want desert. 1 minute later our waiter came back an insisted we order desert. After a few of us told him we weren't interested he kept on pushing the deserts, continuing to describe the deserts etc. It wasn't until each person at the table told him multiple times did he relent and brought us our bill. He was also pushy about drinks at the beginning of the meal. Afterwards we agreed it felt like dining at a used car lot."

  • "The was a little slow coming out but it was worth the wait. From the salads to the dessert everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The sea scallops always come out beautifully done and the braised lamb was rich and flavorful."

  • "I've had the burger before, my wife finally tried it--both agree, BEST BURGER IN TOWN!! She usually gets the chicken breast, her favorite, but relented to try the burger after hearing my raves continually! Enjoy"

  • "We were a group of 5 and spent $300/- for dinner. The main reason I would not recommend it is because 3 out of 5 main course dishes were below average in taste. Everything else was great. Nice bar, ambiance, quiet, good appetizers and drinks. And the service was also great. They need to improve the main course for taste and choices."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Food was superior and well presented, service not as attentive as it could have been. What detracted from overall experience the most was the lack of a warm, comfortable ambiance. Not sure why, maybe because of the high ceiling. Still, I would recommend it for a nice dinner."

  • "There were six of us for our daughter's birthday. We had a nice round table so we could all visit. We all thought our food was delicious. We definitely will be back, great evening."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "A great rotation of wonderfully delicious meal selections, and attentive service from management/owner, and substantial wine list for great meal matching. Yes its right off Willamette Dr but the ambience makes you forget it once you step inside the door. Even in warmer weather when sitting outside, they make a strong effort to transport you to a wonderful over-all dining environment."

  • "This was our second visit to the restaurant in a year (we live over 200 miles away). The service is excellent and the food is outstanding although somewhat limited in scope. Overall enjoyable experience. Will certainly visit again."

  • "503 is small, but fun. Lots of energy - the bartenders are also waiters and very personable. The food was great, but expensive. I hear their Happy Hour is worth the trip."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We have eaten here several times; with our kids and with friends. No matter who we are with the food is great as is the service. We brought friends who had not eaten here this time and one of them is quite particular. They both loved it and want to go back. which of course we will."

  • "We expected to use Passport. It was our error for failing to check the list. They dropped Passport in November."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "We had reservations for 6 which grew to 10 by the day of the event. We reserved their back room for my dad's birthday dinner. All was wonderful. Our server let us establish the pace which turned out to be three hours. She was patient and gracious throughout the dinner. We enjoyed the evening and will be back for future gatherings."

  • "The good was well worth the wait but the proximity of the bar and the poor acoustics made it difficult for a group of four to converse."
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "My partner has food sensitivities that makes eating out a challenge, but Five-O-three will work with you on any dish to make the experience totally pleasant, and safe! And the regular menu is awesome, besides!"

  • "You really feel special when you dine at 503. The waiters are friendly, but professional. Pleasing you is their focus. The food is beyond delicious. The favors are always blended in a special way tp produce the mouth watering reaction."
    Dined on 11/8/2013
  • "Our meal was good but not really inspired. 503 has not come back up to its original level of excellence, although it has certainly improved in the past year of so."
    Dined on 10/23/2013
  • "We love the owner and his faithful band of servants. It's always clean and tidy. The mood lighting in the evenings plus a little band on the weekends adds to the ambience. Good wine list and they like their wine, which means you will like yours! The food is good, not amazing, but good. Sometimes they have specials which are amazing. It's a perfect neighborhood spot if you like a more upscale evening. The appetizers seems to have more bang than the entrees but it's the staff and the wine that always keep us coming back."
    Dined on 10/5/2013
  • "Great personal attention at arrival, and with each course of meal. Duck was devine! Roast vegetable salad a tasty starter. Excellent wine options by glass or bottle. We keep going back and discover new favorites!"

  • "Delicious local sourced food; fantastic attentive service. We enjoyed a special (expensive for us) dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were the only people eating inside the restaurant as the other groups were dining outside and listening to a musician play for three hours. Wonderful evening!"
    Dined on 9/14/2013
  • "One of the best tasting burgers ever! Cooked perfectly at medium rare, with pomme frites and blue cheese drizzle make for a wonderful evening!"
    Dined on 9/10/2013
  • "We had a lovely little dinner outside here. The macaroni & cheese was a bit crispy on top from being broiled but was otherwise good. My husband enjoyed his meal. The outdoor area is on the edge of a parking lot. It's acceptable but not great. Some additional barriers to the parking lot and the road would improve the ambience. We'll go back."

  • "Food was fantastic as always really enjoyed our dinners music is always a great add"
    Dined on 8/17/2013
  • "We asked local friends to choose a restaurant to meet for dinner. Our expectations were met and exceeded! The atmosphere, the drinks, the food, the service and the local band (Samba Feat) were all great! We have already recommended this location to many friends. It was worth the drive from Salem for sure!"
    Dined on 8/17/2013
  • "Our food and service were excellent as in the past when we have come here!"
    Dined on 8/14/2013
  • "We had a wonderful time and the food was good but may I say not great. Everything on both our plates needed salt. It was all terribly bland. Not a big problem when there's salt and pepper on the table but more of one when you need the waiter to bring you the condiments and he doesn't get back to you for almost 10 minutes."
    Dined on 8/3/2013
  • "Dissapointment for the price point. This is the second time I have gone, and both times, the food was marginal for the price point. I only go there to see certain music acts."
    Dined on 8/3/2013
  • "We had a wonderful dinner at Five-0-Three. The food and service were both terrific. Four of us had different dishes and loved them all. The grilled romaine salad is always a hit."
    Dined on 6/26/2013
  • "Having just moved to the area, our meal was spot on! My wife can't eat with onions or garlic, which was not as prevalent as other current menus elsewhere! A new regular for us."
    Dined on 6/23/2013
  • "We love 503 and dine there regularly. Food is good, outdoor dining are nice, service excellent and weekend bands a real treat. Lovely little spot close to home."

  • "Food was alright. Crab cakes were small and lacked proper texture. They fell apart very easily. Fish and chips had were mostly beer-batter and no fish. If you are looking for a s more substantial meal for the price I would stay away from these items. The vegetable risotto was very good. Salads also had nice flavor. Some improvement can be made. Took a while to prepare the food too. Saw their burger go by and it looked great. If I return, I will probably try that."
