Great place with consistent quality. Menu changes seasonally with some favorites available year round.
My only suggestion would be to lessen the salt content of some dishes. One can always add more at the table.
Outside of that, this is amongst our (my wife and me) favorites between Portsmouth and Portland. Fortunately for us we are close by to the Five 0 making it a go to restaurant for a pleasant evening of cocktails and dinner. The staff is super friendly and accommodating from the time one enters to the time of departure.
One additional note - we have at times found it to be a bit on the noisy side, having more to do with the acoustics in the dining room than the lively crowd the restaurant typically draws. This however is not an impediment to our dining at Five 0 as it is a favorite.
Having two servers working room with no support shows. Requested table hostess never mentioned if it was available and sat us in middle of room. Food was good not great sand in my mussels, special cod was very good. Season is just starting. Five O will improve as season continues.
Birthday dinner. Some unevenness but very good on the whole.
Although I live in Kennebunkport, I missed going to 50 Shore Road last year. Told my friend about the fantastic restaurant and that they do the "Friends and Family" on Monday nights.
What a delightful evening! Everything about the place was wonderful. We both opted for the
cod, which was the best I've had in the area. Our server was a lovely young woman who has
been there for several years and did a fantastic job. Afterwards we had a drink at the bar
and enjoyed a superb Cosmo. I certainly would give 50 a 5-Star rating and will go back soon, whether for Friends and Family, or any other night. Loved Donato and Jeff, the previous owners, but the new fellows are doing an amazing job! Keep it up!
Went here for Valentine's Day. Food was excellent with good size portions. Service was outstanding and food came out quickly.
I took my wife to Ogunquit Maine for Valentines Day and booked reservations at Five 0... we have dined at Five 0 before and returned because it is a class operation top notch food, drinks and most especially service.. looking forward to our return.
Took my wife their for my Birthday, that’s how much faith I have in this place. Should be called Food Heaven. We went for breakfast. I had the eggs Benedict with, get ready. English muffin, crab cake, lobster, shrimp and scallops. Worth going to Heaven for, and they only charged 23 I would have paid 83, just saying. And of course don’t skip their pancakes. Very lite. I enjoyed the blueberry chocolate chip. And opted for the maple syrup that our waitress suggested. How by the way couldn’t have been nicer to this, and I hate to say it NY food Brat. I should have spelt their and then ate again. Job well done people, pat yourselves on the back. I wish I could have added a picture of the creation I ate. Hummm
Delicious meal, server Lisa is so friendly and efficient. Great portions and inventive choices.
food was excellent, well prepared presented with care. Service was fantastic! I can't wait to come back.
The food was very good. I had the bolognese and my wife had the cod special. But the service and atmosphere was what made the night. Our waiter was very attentive and had great knowledge of the menu and was able to answer all questions. Would definitely go back again.
Our waiter Sean was top notch as was the food. Thoughtfully prepared dishes seasoned perfectly.
My favorite place to dine. Food excellent. Drinks delightful. Beautiful dining room. Wonderful servers and hostess. Recommend it for any occasion.
We loved it! Excellent food, nice atmosphere, great waiter. It was a special treat for my birthday. Plus the two tables closest to us were also celebrating birthdays, so we had a chance to chat with other guests. Very enjoyable experience.
Five-O has become a favorite when dining out in Ogunquit. The staff, in particular Tory and Gary are awesome, always friendly and accommodating. The selection of appetizers are very good, with variety of cheeses, arincini and meats to start. The bolognese is a favorite as is the chicken entree. Always consistent and enjoyable!
Excellent food and service was too notch, as should have been since restaurant was quiet on a Sunday evening off season. Bar scene though was active and looked quite entertaining what with trivia games in progress there.
Nice place solid food and service
Still celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary
Excellent service, goût exquis, trop bruyant
We had great food and service. We thought it was good value for the money. Very attentive staff for us.
We have been going to 5-0 twice a year for 15 years. We drive up from Boston on our anniversary and birthday weekend getaways and have never been disappointed in the 5-0. The food, service, and ambience are all consistenlty excellent. It is the highlight of our weekend. Very grateful.
I'm sorry to say, I would in no way ever recommend Five O to anyone. Our server, Sammy was very pleasant and the cocktail we had was good. The food is another story. I don't mind paying any price when the food is good; I can afford to do so and have. In reviewing their menu you could see they were attempting to be fancy. Too much, too many flavors mixed in some of the entrees. The $24.00 pasta entrée and $6.00 side vegetable I had were terrible at best. The entrée was 6 half moon shaped dumplings stuffed with finely shredded pork and pureed mushroom muck (all completely flavorless) topped with crunchy shaved proscuit ham(?spelling) very finely shaved masitake(??spelling) mushrooms; something different. Not shitake mushrooms. The dumpling shell itself had a good consistency. There was a small amount of a sauce in the bottom of the dish that had a nice aroma, but not much sauce to get a good flavor, what little there was, it was a little tasty. I could only get through two and a half of them. The vegetable side dish of Delicata squash was prepared in bite size pieces and served with the skin on with spices and shallots. This is a winter squash and is not meant to be served to eat the skin. The squash should have been soft all the way through and it was not and with the skin on top of this it was crunchy - it should not have any hard pieces at all. Neither I or my friend cared for the dish. Absolutely terrible.
My friend had the Pollock fish special. The fish was good, not fantastic, the sauce was so, so. At the price is should have been outstanding. It was ok to her, but not good enough to return.
The atmosphere was nice, but noisy. All in all, it was a bust to the extent I would not give it a second chance. Usually I would try a restaurant one more time; sorry, but not this time.
Amazing!! Our first time here and we will be back! Highly recommend the small plates! Prosciutto, Brie and mushroom ragout were incredible!!
Great food! What a wonderful surprise to find such yummy food a short walk from our hotel. Before coming here, there was only one place in Ogunquit on my regular, reliably excellent list (MC Cove) but now, happily, there are two. I'd come back anytime, with pleasure, and plan to do so during our annual trips to Ogunquit. Appetizer choices are great-- those we tried were uniformly delicious ( fried oysters, chicken pate, mushroom appetizer), great Caesar salad, too, and fantastic pasta, too. Kudos to the chef, kitchen staff, Walt staff!
Outstanding Restaurant. We were on vacation when we tried the place. We dine out regularly, 4-5 times a week. I can honestly say this is probably in my top 3 restaurants over the course of the last 50 years!
Food is done exceptionally well, service is prompt and courteous, would highly recommend
We were very much looking forward to our meals and experience. The restaurant has a certain charm and the staff were more than friendly. From there is was a huge disappointment and the worst two meals we experienced during our five day stay in Maine. My steak and 'frites' were so salty they were impossible to eat. After four bites I gave up and did not touch the rest. The worst piece of meat I have ever been served, dry and salted as if it were being shipped overseas in an earlier century. The fries were tasteless, except for the salt. My wife is vegan and they had no meal to accommodate her. She chose a selection of four sides and salad as her meal. They were served on four side plates. Any other restaurant that does not cater to vegans will put together a nice presentation on a single plate, showing a little effort and imagination. I have seem more imagination in take out joints than what we experienced here. So, high hopes and great disappointment. Never again. Shameful.
always AMAZING food! if visiting Ogunquit you HAVE to eat here!! The most DELICIOUS apple martini I've EVER had!!
Excellent service and delicious food. Server was delightful and knowledgeable. Our favorite restaurant in Ofunquit.
On vacation in Ogunquit. Saw the menu in the afternoon while walking by. Went at 6:00 pm and were seated prior to our reservation. Clean, quiet and excellent ambiance. Menu was very diverse. Wife had Pasta Bolognese, and I had New York Strip. Started out with Raw oysters!
ALL was excellent! BEST restaurant we have eaten at in 2017, and we live near Boston and Worcester! Our server was Lisa and she was the final star of the evening. Don't even hesitate going here for one moment, JUST GO!!!
Nothing memorable. Minuscule salad. Limited choice of entrees. Having dined here on several occasions, this was very disappointing from start to finish.
One of the greatest Restraunts to be in Ogunquit and this place never disappoints. Again the quality and attention of the staff makes this establishment above the rest. The food speaks for the guy in the back......fantastic , bit you try it and I'm sure you'll write your own review.
Great Italian food! Amazing service! Went for diner in October. We highly recommanded!
My wife and I drove up to Ogunquit from New Hampshire and went to Five-O for dinner after enjoying a wonderful musical at the Ogunquit Playhouse. The ambiance was nice and cozy with large windows all around the restaurant overlooking Shore Road. Our server was very professional, knowledgeable and provided excellent service throughout the night. We were having a great time up until the food arrived. i ordered the NY Strip Steak and my wife had the Short Ribs. The steak was pre-sliced and looked perfectly cooked at medium temperature. Unfortunately, the flavor didn't live up to expectations. The steak was extremely tough and didn't have much flavor or seasoning. My guess is they used a low grade quality beef like select instead of choice or prime and pre-slicing the meat stripped away the tenderness. I was very disappointed considering the great reviews we read prior to making reservations and the price per plate. With so many options available in Ogunquit we will not be going back to Five-O and recommend trying other restaurants first.
I vacation in Maine every Fall for the last 15 years and have always wanted to dine at Five-0. I also wanted to try a reservation using Open Table. The reservation was perfect, our server was excellent (Samantha) great wine list; they did not have my selection but their recommended alternative was spot-on. Presentation was excellent but food was disappointing. The appetizer menu excellent, tasty and fair priced, the entree choices very un-Maine like, overpriced and just alright at best. We skipped dessert. What the food lacked the server's personality, the appetizer choices and the wine made up. If you go, and we won't again, enjoy an appetizer or two, and skip the soup and enjoy the salad. A meal not worth dropping a c-note on so next year we'll stick with the Cape Neddick Lobster Pound, costs us a little less there too and much, much better.
The food was incredible!. But, the noise level is a bit on the high side.
This was our 3rd visit. Have gone all 3 times we were in Ogunquit, a special place for us. Lisa our waitress was excellent. Whole Lubino fish was enjoyed by my daughter; the special of the night Grilled Hake over couscous was delicious which I enjoyed. Steamed mussels in white wine & leeks plus the Autumn Salad were excellent appetizers.Don't forget the Blueberry Martini, it'll cause you to return again..
The food and service were great, but the tables were WAY to close together. I was closer to the person next to me at the next table than I was to my wife across from me.
Excellent food and service. First time here and we were very pleased from wine list to the Lemon Oil Cake for dessert, delicious!
