This by far is the best dining experience I have had in Portland,Maine. From the moment we walked in to the minute we left, the experience was memorable. The cocktails and food was AMAZING. The wait staff was absolutely impeccable. Always greeting with a smile and making sure we wanted for nothing while there.
Hands down a memorable, fun,and decadent dining experience. I cannot wait to visit again and again!

worst waiter (bald, big beard), service, and response from management i have ever had in my life. went for a family dinner — ordered a $250 bottle of wine, cocktails, $90 steak, were generally easy to deal with — yet the waiter could not have had a worse attitude or cared less about our table. two people in our party ordered the ribeye for two and when they asked to have the remainder wrapped up, he threw away the bone that had quite a bit of meat on it without asking. my parents were so disappointed and there was no apology offered. he was rude, condescending, and had a terrible attitude. we kindly talked to the manager on our way out and he could not have cared less and didn’t even apologize for the poor service on a $600+ table. i’ve been to 555 many times before and after this experience i will absolutely never go back, and will tell everyone i know to do the same.

This is our favorite restaurant in Portland for special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries...). The atmosphere is calm, somewhat cozy, professional. Service is professional but friendly. Food is always excellent. We always know we will have an excellent evening at 555.

Pleasant dinner. Hot courses not always hot. “Cheesecake,” a dessert selection, was a gelatinous cube with no resemblance to cheesecake. Service warm and excellent and just the right attentive touch without being intrusive.

Words fail to express how wonderful this restraunt is! The food was great and our table was in such a wonderful spot (tip: if you can get it, all for a table on the second floor- quitter and a bit more intimate). Servers were very attentive and friendly.

The best is the attention to little details that make you feel welcome. We got to our table and found a little card wishing us a happy anniversary then, they came by and poured us a complimentary glass of rose champagne. At the end of the meal, we ordered the dessert sampler and it came with a sugar waifer also wishing us a happy anniversary.

I've never been to a restaurant who really cared or put that much effort into making guests feel so special. It totally made our night. ❤️

They greeted us with half glass of complimentary pink bubbly and a note saying “Happy Anniversary”. The host and waiter were gracious and charming. I loved my scallops crudo, and we shared the grilled caesar salmon, which they split on to two plates without being asked. Best anchovies I’ve had! Then my duck entree was also delicious. I finished with salted caramels and a cappuccino, which came with another anniversary acknowledgement on the plate in the form of a decorated cookie. My husband loved the giant ice cube in his cocktail too!

It was our 30th anniversary. Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Only two complaints - the room was freezing. I had to wear my winter coat throughout the meal. And I was disappointed that their signature truffle mac and cheese was served in a wide bowl instead of a crock, which they used to do. The pasta cooled down too quickly (probably because the room was so cold).

Service was great. Very pricey! Disappointed in food because sometimes chefs get a little too “creative” and the results are odd— like radishes in rice pilaf! Some odd and unrecognizable combos.

We arrived at the restaurant on time. We were told we could be seated in a few minutes and invited to sit at the bar which we did. A friend was already at the bar waiting for his takeout order. We chatted and did not hurry to our table. The restaurant encouraged us to take our time, and we appreciated the fact that they were willing to wait for us.

We hadn’t been to 555 in a few years, but remembered the food being excellent. Unfortunately, our dinner last night was mediocre: undercooked salmon (even though I had asked for it to be very well cooked/crispy), too much sauce dumped on our main dishes, cold biscuits and focaccia, etc., etc.

Also disappointing was the fact that, even though the restaurant had asked whether we were booking for a special occasion and I said yes (one husband’s retirement and another person’s selling a house), there was NO acknowledgment of the occasion other than a tacky piece of paper placed on our table when we arrived saying “Congratulations!” Honestly, if a restaurant makes a point of asking if we are celebrating a special occasion, then we expect AT LEAST a free caramel or a glass of Prosecco or some other little gesture. Otherwise, don’t bother asking at all. It’s just irritating.

Sorry for the negative review, but I doubt that we will ever return.

Service and food presentation were impeccable. We did their signature tasting menu, overall a good experience but not sure the price reflected the portion size of each course. Some dishes tasted amazing others might have been more focused on presentation than taste. Would recommend to a friend who's a Foodie.

We had a very nice experience. The food was exquisite. I am a vegetarian and the choices for me were inspired, unusual and delicious.
