    The foid was fine. The service was average. I liked the small rooms. What ruined it for me is when we both ordered tea and they brought 1 pot with one average sized tea bag. I don't think I should have to share my tea bag and end up with a weak cup of tea.

    The food was quite good. We were seated right away. Finally a girl came over to take our drink order. We questioned if it was still happy hour and was told yes. We ordered our drinks. Service was very slow. I spoke to the owner and was told they were short staffed. We ordered a second round of drinks that took 20 minutes to get. The bill came and the drinks were regular priced so we quested the bill. The waitress said she would speak to the owner. She came back and told us Happy Hour was only in the bar and she apologized but the owner would not reduce the price of the drinks. He claimed it was written all over. We never really got into the bar so we never saw the sign yet he would not bend. We will never go there again nor our friends.

    My husnband & I have been here on 2 other occasions. As before, The service & staff were wonderful. Food was excellent. We had a car cake special & veal chops also. The Deviled Egg appetizer was fantastic! If you don't want dinner, They also have great bar area with live music! You can get tapas & beer/wine/specialty drinks at the bar. Outdoor seating is fun. Ample wine list and serves are knowledgable on menu as well as very helpful in selecting a wine. We had a MAlbec that was delicious!

    Food was poor and overpriced. Steak was very fatty and chewy. My steak from Cosco was far superior. Their Tapas were better but still nothing that special. $200 for dinner (2 adults 2 children). Not worth it.

    My visit to 552 was a disappointment, started out with an Apple Martini, OK, The St. James Salad was awash in Vinaigrette, (lighten up guys) should have asked for the dressing on the side. Main Course was a pork tenderloin " Pinwheel " stuffed with Mozzarela cheese and I think Spinach, Bland and Tasteless, my partners Chilean Tourbot was OK, we skipped the lackluster dessert menu. I had high expectations, but this place tries to bring a little bit of New York City to the suburbs but it just doesn't work.

    We have eaten here before and the food and service was excellent so we thought we would go back again, unfortunately we had a totally different experience this time. Everyone was extremely nice however this time the food and service were just average. This restaurant can get pricey unless you take advantage of their pre-fixe which we did not so we were disappointed when we received a large bill for average food. We will probably give this restaurant one more try because it is close to home and we like to support local businesses, however at $150 for two with only one drink a piece and a shared salad the food and service should have been better.

    This was our third dining experience at Five. Five 2. There are several dining rooms within the restaurant all similar in ambiance but each is unique. All the rooms are cozy but not cramped.

    We arrived early and sat at the bar. The bar counter was sticky with glass ring stains to go along with the dirty seat cushions on each bar stool. The server was nice enough, but the chard was served way too cold. The price per glass was ok. After being seated, the waitress did not know the menu. When it was time for dessert, she brought the desserts and never asked if we wanted coffee. My wife informed her she would like coffee and the waitress never asked if I would like coffee. I never asked and finished off dinner with a glass of water. The four small plates we ordered were fair at best in both quanity and quality. We tried the restaurant because we had a groupon deal and will not return.

    Had obtained a groupon to 552. Looked like a nice place, had a decent menu, wanted to try somewhere new. The staff was nice, the ambiance was beautiful. My only complaint was the small portion for the price. My mother got a chicken dish which consisted of a grilled piece of chicken and a VERY small salad. The dish was a lot less impressive than how it presented itself on the menu. I got the seared tuna special but it was alright, nothing special. We weren't very impressed with the meal, the prices didn't warrant it in my opinion, we probably will not return.

    Reservation for 12:30 pm (lunch) on Sunday, arrived 10 minutes early, there was no receptionist nor any other customer. We had to wait for 5 minutes before someone from the kitchen came to the front to seat us. Menu was limited. We ordered two appetizers (calamari and slider) and two fish dishes (Chilean turbot and Scottish salmon). Bok choy was replaced with broccoli without warning . My husband ordered rice to go with turbot, but had polenta on his plate instead. The waitress just said "the chef sometimes make mistakes with the order". We are the only customers in the restaurant! Turbot lacks proper seasoning, sliders are dry. All in all, very poor services and below average food quality, overpriced. Will not go back.

    Went on a Saturday night, place was pack and they had one server on with a helper, who could not really help. It was restaurant week, so the regular menu was cut back, but they had only four entrees. Two fish, chicken parmesan( that u can get in any pizzeria at half the price.) And a pasta dish. We looked at the menu on-line and was very disappointed. We asked questions to the server about the fish and she was very nice but clueless. Also when we first got there we stood at the front door and waited over ten minutes for someone to greet us. There was a hostess and I guess the owner, but the just seemed like they didn't care. The nicest person we spoke to was the valet. For these reasons and their prices we will not return.

    I've passed this restaurant many times by day, nothing much to notice but the sign out front. We decided to try it for restaurant week. The place was jumping, there was some live music and the bar was very busy. Since we booked a reservation though Open Table the wait was minimal but if you didn't have a reservation forget it. The owner, I'll assume, was busily helping to seat people and he was eager to talk about the menu and made a couple of suggestions as well. The food was excellent and we look forward to a return visit.

    The food was excellent. My niece had huge fish and chips and I had the pork. A big more salt would have elevated my dish. Service by the male servers was in attentive, even though they were not busy. They were barely a presence in the dining room. The female servers were, and I had to keep asking them for assistance because my male waiter was MIA.

    Been here 3-4 times now, every time hoping the service will improve, booked a table for 7, got there at 6:30 for a cocktail first . At 7 we went to the hostess to be sat to be Told e would be another 10 mins ,the restaurant was 70% empty ? Our server was a nice young guy and did his best , I had the spicy Calamari and then the pork loin , both exceptional ! My wife the steak wedge , very good she said . The way the owner talks to his staff isn't pleasant (especially in front of guests) when it seems to be he that is the disorganised one. Proper regular training is what's required here. I'll probably go back but not for a few months. Food is great / staff need training

    This restaurant has always been hit or miss, but this was a definite miss. We knew it wasn't going to be good when the hostess told us she "had no idea" when our reserved table would be ready. The waiter took our order, forgot one of our drinks, and disappeared for the night. The chicken arrived over cooked and the steak was under cooked, which could have been sent back had he bothered to check on us.This restaurant keeps changing its name but that's not where they need to improve. We've gone back because we live in the area and it's convenient, but we're done. The only person who was pleasant and did his job was the busboy. We happened to use a Groupon that night; maybe that's why they were so inattentive, but that's no excuse.
