Felt a little rushed. No room at bar to sit and have a drink and order. Very small table in Alley Cat Lounge. Nice but main dining area much nicer. Will always be my favorite!

The food was amazing, but the char on the steak was too over-powering; just tasted burnt. It may have been to hold in the flavor, but in reality it took away from it. Everything else was great, would definitely come back 👍

Charcoal coved steak order median came out rare . Black top taste like coal. Steak went back replaced with prime rib which came out rare couldn’t even cut the meat. Manger took $50 off my $138 meal which I got to eat 1 lb king crab. We spent over $300 and no one was real happy with there steaks. There are better place to spend your money! Go to Wards for one.

Dinner with son.

While musician was excellent in playing and choices of music, it was loud when sitting at the bar. Had to talk loud & lean close to converse.

I go to Five O' Clock 3-5 times a year. The steak is always done perfectly and the staff is always welcoming and gives 5 star service. Keep up the great job and see you in July!!

We are regulars and three of the four of us were very disappointed. The prime rib was very fatty and tough. Two in our party ordered filets medium and they both were very rare and tough. This was our second time in the last few months the quality of the meet was no where near as good.

This was a night out for our Anniversary, we ordered a 16oz filet and the Prime Rib, filet was delicious but prime rib was not good at all, so stringy and chewy. After working in restaurants for a great majority of my life I understand that sometimes you just get a bad piece of meat. The server and the manager handled my complaint amazingly and were very kind. I believe that the Prime Rib is normally as delicious as the filet but not this past Saturday. Everything else was top notch. We will be back to dine again soon!

The place was a bit dated. They did a great job with the covid separation. It made you feel safe for sure. The food was good, but we totally enjoy their sister restaurant, Chicago Prime Steakhouse, way more!!

Party of 6 for a 50th birthday party. Drinks took 25 minutes to fill. Food ordered,food not given to the right people, meat supposed to be cooked in 1500-2000 degree sear, comes to the table ice cold in the middle. Over $600 and I'm not happy. Worst service ,worst ribeye, given to someone else at the table. This is by far the most disappointed I have been. Server was not attentive to our table. I feel that this is the last time I would even recommend this restaurant.

This was my husband and I 1st time dining at Five o'clock and it will not be our last. We were celebrating his Birthday and it was Nothing short from amazing. We absolutely loved the concept of what we call the "handoff" From the hostess, bartenders, waitresses, Manager who also came around to greet the guest.... It was magnificent. Thank you for making this experience the best and 1st many more. BTW, the food was delicious cooked to our liking, we were full and left with more to enjoy later.

Fun, old fashioned place! We had a reservation and still waited over an hour for our table. Everything is very pricey, drinks included, which the extra hour wait just added to our bill. Steaks are charred perfectly, just not alot of flavor with the filet.

Some of our party of 4 had steaks..they were so-so....one had to be sent back to the kitchen for not even being close to what was ordered. The Prime Rib "sucked". For as much as we spent on the food is was just terrible. Don't ever have Prime Rib if you go there. It was much too fatty with small pockets of real meat that was difficult to chew. On top of the iffy cuisine there was a very boisterous party of about 11 people close to us that made so much commotion that we couldn't carry on a conversation within our own party of 4. Also next to us, they put 6 people at a table that was designed to hold 4 people. They were elbow-to-elbow.. Don't even know how they were able to eat their food comfortably let alone have enough room on the table for their food.. Since I go to very nice restaurants often , I might leave a "poor" review once every 4-5 years if that often ......I haven't been to this place in a few years but something must have changed and this time I had to speak out! I don't think we'll be going there again...there are too many other excellent restaurants in Milwaukee.

The steak seemed different in flavor (less) and had some kind brown powder sprinkled on top. Got it this way once before. Not as good. Also, even though the prices are pretty high now, we got less au jus(love it) on the plate with the steak and they charge if you ask for extra. I love this place, but I'm not liking the skimping. Our server was great.
