Five Crowns Ratings and Reviews
We enjoyed our annual holiday dinner at Five Crowns on Sunday night, and they delivered an exceptional experience yet again! The food is delicious (the prime rib is amazing), the atmosphere holiday charming, and the Dickens carolers delightful! Highly recommend Five Crowns anytime of year... but especially during the Holiday season!
Ambiance was warm and inviting, beautifully decorated for the holidays. The carolers in vintage garb were excellent. The hostess was very attentive. Our waitress was polite and friendly, but was kept very busy with her other tables. There was an extended period of time between ordering and receiving the courses. Our drink orders, when served, were incorrect. The lobster bisque was only warm, not hot, and missing the lobster. The seasonal squash soup was savory and delicious. The Crown Cut prime rib portion, while tasty, was mainly rib, and very fatty. The actual consumable portion was very thin and small. The CA Cut, which was supposed to be 5 oz, apoeared to be no more than 3-4 oz. The plates were not hot. The corn and spinach sides, while good tasting, were very small. The chocolate soufflé for dessert was exceptional! I'd highly recommend it.
I've there many years at Christmas time and I was a little disappointed this year in the ambiance. They still had the carolers strolling amongst the tables. The lobster was under cooked and had to be sent back.
I still love the place...maybe it was just the room we were in.
I have been dining at Five Crowns for 50 years and after my visit this week will not go again. This restaurant was always consistently high quality and it has lost that rating for me. I treated my friend to dinner for her 75th birthday. We both ordered the same entre of California cut of prime rib which is touted as 6oz. My serving was about 2 oz.. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant and along with the creamed spinach were served at room temperature. It’s hard to accept this disappointment. I always choose Five Crowns as my first choice. Please convey my review to management or owners. Maybe they will take note and try to bring back what Five Crowns was.
My only complaint with Five Crowns is that though we have been celebrating the same birthday there for 15 years, we NEVER get the type of table I ask for. I always book at least three weeks in advance and large tables are already booked. We settle for 8 every time and a table is never available and yet by the time we leave we are the only ones left. I just don’t feel that there is any loyalty for return customers.
Other than that the food is always excellent, though I would stick with the prime rib. Some of us have tried fish, steak ( that has come either over cooked or undercooked, or goose which is just ok. ) Service is usually great but can be spotty. This time it was the BEST! We loved our waiter. He offered us champagne because he knew we were disappointed with our table and took incredible care of us. I wish I had gotten his name to give him a shout out! Chistmas carollers come through the restaurant during the holiday season and the restaurant really does look like a Christmas lodge. This is a perfect restaurant for the Holidays!!!
This was not one of The Five Crowns best nights for us. Difficult to understand the waiter due to his heavy accent. Bottle of Chardonney came room temp. and they could not seem to get it chilled. So an expensive bottle of wine, room temp. Not good. Food was ordinary. Lobster undercooked and very unappealing sauce served with it. Terrible service, waited forever for dinner and the check. I did take the time to write Mr. Richard Frank about our evening.
We waited a long time to visit at Christmas with our family. We were seated upstairs, what I see as the kiss of death. 0ver flow or large parties. Everyones tables were softly lit, some sat by the fireplace. We were placed next to the bar where table items were stocked and a bus boy left his cell phone playing loud holiday music at the maximum sound capacity. We turned it off ourselves by reaching back to the supply table counter and turning it off. Above our table, and only our table, were 4 spotlights. Glaring. Another busboy stood on a chair and taped 5 pieces of blue tape over one of them to cut the brightness down. So ambience you ask? Terrible. Not a plant or a flower or even a lit candle. Just a large round table too big to enjoy a much cherished dinner with Mom, Dad and their three grown married daughters, an annual night treat just the 5 of us. The whole thing was pathetic.
We have have been frequenting Five Crowns for many years. We had not been in a couple years and found that we felt very rushed. Appetizers were quick, meal was quick, birthday dessert quick. Got there at 5:30p and left at 6:30p - not a relaxing, formal evening. Won't be back for sometime.
visit for birthday for Dad (me). We loved the server: professional and friendly. wanted to please us. Older wine man was fun and knew the history of Hurley Bell where I have dined a couple times in England, he was very nice. Son loved his roast beef and ate some of his mom's English cut which she liked. He like salad and mash potato but Mom not crazy about her Caesar salad. I loved the idea of the beet goat cheese salad but the cheese was watery, no body at all. Loved the spinach creamed and the Yorkie pudding as did my son. My Crown cut seemed a bit thin and small but the meat was tasty. Seems like restaurant could be a bit more generous for a 42.00 serving. The bar Manhattan done the way I liked courtesy of the server and bartender. Just seems it was not the wonderful cut of meat we received years ago in the Crown cut or like the ol'Lawrys restaurant in Los Angeles. thank you for b/d desert.
Food good as usual. Welcome terrible. The hostess took my name and never called, mind you I had reservation. Customers came in and she sat them ignoring my mother and I. Finally I approached her and the only thing she said: “I am sorry” Realllllllllly. I am still so mad I forgot her name but she was there on Friday at 5:00 p.m. You won’t see us for a looooong while.
Maybe Thanksgiving wasn't the best time to try 5 Crowns.
Great ambience. Food was marginal.
$50 for a 1inch thick filet mignon that you might get served at a wedding reception. Maybe it was the end of the night and they ran out of the best cuts?
Waiter was overwhelmed.
We are glad the Five Crowns is back to the original feel and prime rib. That is what it has always been known for!
It has been a go to for special dining for our family since the 60's and glad to see it is now refreshed but with more the original feel.
Enjoyed our evening!
We have dined at Five Crowns in the past on Thanksgiving. It was not overly crowded, mid afternoon, however we waited an exceptionally long time for our meal.
We also has to ask for an item that was included in the prefix menu as our waiter didn't offer to us. Our bill was incorrect and it took a long time to fix. If anything could go wrong it did! They comped desert for the wait.
Not sure if we will be back again for a holiday meal. The food was average , not as good as last year. Also, the price was higher on the menu than the promotional email we received.
My wife & I hadn’t been to the 5 Crown in years & for one of our “date nights” ventured into CDM for some old world charm. Hostess was friendly & were seated quickly for a Saturday night (w/Open Table reservation). Lucky enough to get a corner table next to the working fireplace. Megan was our server & she was top notch at every level. The hancrafted cocktails were great, the wine list impressive and our meal was delicious from start to finish. All of the serving staff was friendly & professional. Worth every penny (& bring lots of them) and would recommend for any occasion. Thanx 5 Crowns!!
