We enjoyed our dinner at Five Fifty-Five. I had the Truffled Lobster Mac and Cheese - the lobster was amazing. My husband had the duck, he particularly enjoyed the duck breast, very tender. Service was good - server who brought water and bread was very nice, waiter was fine. Our table was in the middle of the dining room, very close to the tables next to it - kind of a disappointment, we did have reservations and restaurant was not full, there seemed like a lot of better tables we could have been seated at. The tables on the upper level looked good. I didn't really care for either of my drinks - a mixed drink and the sangria.

Wonderful meal, service and drinks. Cozy atmosphere to enjoy your group conversations. The scallops, Hanger steak and Duck were delicious, as was the grilled Caesar and carrot cake.

Very delicious food and pricing was fair for high quality. Cooks by the bathrooms were very nice and asked how everything was. Waitress was not attentive once we got our appetizers (didn't get a second drink until almost done with meal) which is main complaint. Decor feels a little dated, but nice layout. All in all very nice meal.

I got the impression that 555 is trying to position themselves at the high end of culinary flair with the likes of The French Laundry, but it's got a long way to go. Overpriced, small servings with moderate flavor. I had the duck which consisted of one slice of breast paired with a mole (and shredded duck?) wrap and a spoonful of flavorless quinoa for $31. Flavors were totally out of synch. The atmosphere was nice and the service was friendly but often delayed. Overall, I'd say they have a good base, but need to bring down the prices and bring up the flavor and portions.

We celebrated our anniversary here last Friday. It was a wonderful evening from the complementary sparkling rose to the chocolate fudge cake finish. Michael, our waitperson, was exemplary in his description of the signature tasting menu and the accompanying wines. The staff were most helpful and attentive throughout. We have been here multiple times in the past and consider 555 among the restaurant jewels of Portland.

The food and service were great for 2/3 of the meal. Then the dining room got much busier and the service slowed down. Three of us tried the tasting menu and the time between the main course and dessert was quite long. Overall, we would come back and recommend 555 to others looking for a great place to eat in Portland.

Planned a special anniversary dinner here, hadn’t been in several years since a fabulous college graduation dinner. 555 did not disappoint. Due to weather related hiccups, anniversary celebration turned into friendversary! We were greeted warmly, seated at a lovely, quiet table and all enjoyed a few laughs regarding the circumstances. Our Server was extremely knowledgeable with regards to both food and wine recommendations. We both opted for Chef’s tasting menu, what a treat! Do yourself a favor and give it a try. Chefs creativity never ceases to amaze and the portion sizes are perfect. Would highly recommend for not only a special occasion but also the small plates available at the bar. Looking forward to another visit the next time in Maine!
