The 555 consistently hits the mark. The steaks are outrageous and the service is impeccable. The kitchen can take a little time sometimes so give yourself some extra time, if you’re in a hurry this may frustrate you but if you wait A bit for some excellent food while enjoying your company. there’s nothing like the 555 E.! Thanks guys! you killed it again, I really appreciate it see you soon!

A great way to give thanks, with the people that create and provide a wonderful menu, service, and one-on-one attention to the details. Everyone is pleasant, courteous, and care about the meal and the individual.

My Thanksgiving place— awesome and best.

Amazing service, great menu and the food was incredible. I recommend if you’re in the area and like a good steak you just stop by and have a juicy prime ribeye and baked potato.

Fabulous FOOD! Fantastic SERVICE!

I dined alone on Thanksgiving and the restaurant was busy. Amazing food and Great service is very important to me. I was not disappointed. During dinner, I never looked for my waitress, Julia, or wonder if she'd come back because BOOM! There she was! The ambience and piano were perfect. I'd definitely eat a Thanksgiving feast there again.

555 never disappoints. I always order the oysters. They were amazing. I ordered the surf and turf for my entrée. It was cooked perfectly and was delicious. My son and husband had the Thanksgiving meal. They enjoyed it, especially the Chocolate Cake and Pumpkin Pie mousse. Of course, the cocktails are always on point.

Sat us outside where it was loud/noisy, primarily from the high intensity music that was being played (felt to generally be inappropriate selection for a Thanksgiving brunch). Food: wilted but tasty green salad, turkey meet was dry, hard in areas (not tender at all), somewhat cold meat as if had been standing a while, baked potato was filled with sour cream when it was ordered only with butter. Very disappointing experience overall especially given the higher standards expected from our previous dinners and lunches eaten there!

Will avoid making reservations at 555 in the future for any special occasions.

We eat there probably four times a month. Their steaks are delicious. Their seafood is outstanding and their clam chowder soup and beet salad are as good as you will find. They also have the best crème brûlée I’ve ever had. Finally, they’re hot rolls and butter are to die for.

Celebrated friends birthday. Have been wanting to attend this restaurant for a while. Atmosphere was nice. Food was good. Nice portions . Quality filet.

Our waiter was ok. Had cool stories I’ll never remember and the food took forever to come out. We literally spent 3 hours in the restaurant from the time we sat down until we were done. We wanted to order apps but because of the wait we just ended up ordering our meals. The meals took forever to come out. People who came after us were eating before we got our plates. We only had a party of 4. It took 2 hours for us to get our food from the time we arrived. Imagine that!!!

I won’t be back there. Food quality was good and ambience was good as well but the service ….. it’s the service that makes or breaks your experience.

Rib eye was too grainy, spinach over salted and the busser dropped a knife on my kid's head. Head. And barely acknowledged it.

I have been bringing my family and friends to your restaurant for over 30 years, and have always been extremely please with everything during those visits. When we visited last night my party was seated in your outside tent, which was nosier than one should be expected to endure from a "fine dining" establishment such as yours. I am now hearing impaired and had a very difficult time hearing the members of my own party, as their voices were continually drowned out by passing emergency vehicles. When my dinner arrived, the plate was hot, but the baked potato was tepid at best, not even warm enough to melt the butter enclosed. And by the time it was replaced the stake was warm at best. I must admit that I was more than mildly disappointed and embarrassed after spending giving your restaurant such high praise and spending over $535.00 for a party of 4.

We checked in, we asked to sit at the bar to have a drink. And the end of our first drink my husband went back to one of the ladies in the front and asked to be seated and her response was not what we expected...."well usually people check in with us first and then we check our list". It was the way she delivered that to us was very unexpected. I jump in and said I'm sorry we already checked in and we have reservations.

First time here…took my 16 year old son…
Paul was our server and he was amazing…as someone who worked in the industry for 15 years…it was nice to have excellent service! Attentive yet unobtrusive…he took our entire order at the same time and paced everything beautifully.
Food was phenomenal…I have not had a steak that perfect in years…I’ve had great steaks but this was perfection…
The only thing I did not like very much was the salad dressing in the organic greens…was a little stop sweet for a vinaigrette so next time I will go with the Caesar…
My son called his filet “steak pudding” as it just melted in your mouth…
Definitely a too 5 contender!
We went back for dessert after our show…
Unfortunately the dessert was a little disappointing…
We ordered 4 different types…
Creme brûlée: great texture..could use some vanilla bean
Chocolate soufflé: have definitely had better
New Your Cheesecake: also had better
Rustic Apple Tarte: absolutely delicious! Highly recommend!!

My decaf French press coffee was like warm…

But still top notch and I would highly recommend!
