This was truly a delightful outing. From Michelle at the Side Door bar, whose mixology cannot be beat, to Jacob, Jorge and Carlos who took amazing care of us, my husband and I cannot wait to visit again. The food was perfection itself, my filet was like butter, my husband's lamb chops were magnificent. This was truly worth every penny.

It was a very nice Easter dinner. The service and food the Five Crowns standard. What was surprising & disappointing was to see the restaurant not that busy. Hopefully the tide will turn and Easter be successful for you next year.

Five Crowns was a nice place. It is right on the Coast Highway, so you’re not sure what to think from the outside. Then you go inside and the English-club atmosphere works. Same theme to the menu — it just works. Nice portions, too. Attentive service but not overboard. All in all, a nice meal.

Overall, it was a good experience. My husband enjoyed his prime rib and it was his birthday. My salmon was a little overcooked, which made it dry, with the potato crust on top. We ordered the chocolate souffle for desert, and I've had better. The trifle cake was to die for, though! As I said, overall it was a nice experience and I would recommend the restaurant for ambiance and good service.

First class!
We had a great time. Food and service was excellent.
I only gave 3 stars for value because it was expensive but considering our experience, I did not expect it to be cheap.
Thanks again

Celebrated a birthday with a table for 6 3/30/19. From start to finish everything was amazing. Hot rolls served with great cocktails. We brought our favorite wine. Every dish was hot, perfectly cooked and juicy prime rib, great salads and sides of creamed corn and creamed spinach to die for.
Old fashioned service with prompt and efficient hardworking servers. Very comfy vibe, but A+++ food and service. One of our favorites for a special occasion and a chocolate soufflé die for.

This was a birthday celebration meal.

We shared the Tudor prime rib which was very large - 18 ounces, I believe. It was served very elegantly on two plates. It came with creamed corn and cream spinach and Yorkshire pudding, Everything was outstanding.

A complimentary strawberry shortcake for the birthday girl was provided and was enough for two and very tasty.

A great place for special occasions, especially if prime rib is a favorite.

The manager was most helpful in responding to my seating request which I know cannot be always accommodated. Our server was wonderful. As a prime rib fan. I frequent Lawry’s establishments often and the old prime rib houses could learn from Five Crowns. The prime rib was prepared Perfectly, was tender as butter and came with two choices: potatoes, cream spinach or cream corn as the old prime rib houses used to do. You can’t go wrong at Five Crowns If you are a prime rib fan and enjoy fine dining in an unique setting.

What a phenomenal experience!! The customer service was exceptional from the moment we stepped into the restaurant to when we left. The hostess were very welcoming when they greeted us- very nice when we asked them to take a picture with the phone booth. The servers and waiters/waitresses were very friendly and knowledgeable. Chris, the chef himself showed amazing customer service when we asked to speak to him about the meal. Exceptional!! The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the restrooms were very clean, and the floors work great for those who wore heels. We came because of the good food and the customer service is what will bring it back!!
