FIVE Restaurant Bistro
Love the chopped salad. Split a sausage pizza too- great food!
This is a very good restaurant. Food was delicious and interesting. Well priced. Wine list was good. I would have given 5 stars for everything but it was a birthday dinner (mentioned in reservation and clear from presents and flowers on table) and neither the persons welcoming us our table or our server mentioned it. Service was good - 4 stars- professional-knowledgeable but not friendly.
Our server was fantastic and so patient with some of our indecisive family members. Our group loved their food, particularly the halibut with farro and the roasted chicken. Both the food and drink were generous portions. We'll definitely be back.
They didn’t have record of our Open Table booking - likely issue was lack of training or familiarity with the Open Table system.
It if it was not for our server Timmy, the experience would have been a real miss. I go to Five frequently and they are slow at getting your order out. Saturday night they were extra slow. We waited longer to get seated because we were dissatisfied with where they wanted to originally seat us. When we finally got to our table, thirty minutes past our reservation time, we sat there for a long time without menus or any acknowledgement from a server. When we went to the desk to check, the young woman snapped that we had just been seated. I was ready to leave. We were there celebrating my birthday and then Timmy finally arrived and smoothed things over. The food was good.
We dined at the recommendation of people who live in the neighborhood. So glad we did! Prices are higher than what is posted online, but you can certainly find an affordable meal on the menu. I had halibut and it was prepared perfectly and tasted delicious, beyond expectations.
Tasty, great service, and we loved the chocolate chip cookie dessert. Service was very good. We'll be back!
Menu was diverse and interesting. The food was very good and the service outstanding. A bit pricey, but what isn’t in the Seattle area?
They have a fantastic Caesar salad and then pair that with anything else on the menu for a winning meal.
We shared 'Manila clams, penn cove mussels in a dijon tarragon sauce' and 'Oven fired bay scallops in a spicy lime mornay sauce and regianitto'. Both were great , and were served with a nice amount of bread. These and a couple of drinks made for a nice dinner.
Always love eating at Five. Great ambiance, quality of food, service.
Cramped and very loud. Nothing special. No place for conversation or romance.
Always the best service with the best food. Employees always have a smile on their face. Thanks for having us!
Our server seemed disinterested.
The service was great and the food was the best. My only suggestion: I ordered the pork chop which was delish but the mashed potatoes and the sauce were barely warm. I know some like them served on the cool side but I like mine hot.
Made the reservation but when arrived at the restaurant I was told they are opening in an hour. I was invited "some other time". Poor experience.
We have eaten at 5 several times. It never disappoints. Great food & friendly service.
Satisfied all around. The server was amazing! Food was delicious. Will definitely come back and even recommend. Can’t wait for the patio to open up for an even better ambiance.
Wonderful birthday dinner.
Noisy, but delicious. Seems like our favorite calamari appetizer gets smaller and smaller, which is unfortunate. Enjoyed the food, but cannot stand shouting to my husband across the small table.
We came for lunch shortly after you opened. The place was freezing cold! the music was too loud for a comfortable conversation. We asked to have it turned down. Other than that the food is good as always and the waitress was nice and helpful. Our soup came out to us luke warm we asked to have it heated it was and tasted good. I always enjoy my visit to Bistro FIVE only next time I will not come with guests till your place warms up, we ate with our coats on and were still cold. Thank you for asking.
Great service, delicious food!
Consistently good. Everything is well prepared with some original ideas. My $29 Halibut was presented on a bed of tasty creamy farro, but the plain grilled halibut itself (which was perfectly cooked) needed a sauce. All the pizzas on the menu look good and are contemporary; a few non dairy selections would be nice since I’m intolerant.
An absolutely wonderful meal from start to finish. Not only were the food and drinks amazing, but our server Connor was above and beyond. He has an extensive knowledge of the food menu, spirits, and wine list. All questions we had were answered with confidence and ease.
To start we had the oysters and the sea scallops -- delish. Then we had the halibut and the pork chop. All were outstanding -- and the farro side dish with the halibut was exquisite. To finish the evening we had the berry crisp and the vanilla gelato with chocolate shavings.
Excited to go back and try more!
Food was outstanding and the service was the best we have ever had. You really impressed our guests who had never been there. Thanks
Wait seemed odd, kind of dry. Not personable. Did seem like they enjoyed what they did.
Lovely restaurant each and every time! Loved our corner table this time.
We're sort of regulars at Five and enjoy going there. We were disappointed to learn that they no longer have happy hour on weekends. We've also noticed that the food quality is not as consistently good as in the past (fish a little overcooked; dishes arrive a little cold; bread pudding that amounted to a pile of flavored bread cubes). However, service is consistently top notch (thanks, Tosh and Connor!). So are Gabe's cocktails.
Always enjoyable when the food is as good as the service! Great restaurant.
Hummus wasn’t good. All the other food was fine. Our booth was good for us tucked in a corner. Service was good.
Go to restaurant in Edmonds!
Continues to be one of our favorite spots! I highly recommend this place.
This is a great local bistro. I love the Caesar salad and the clams and mussels
One of my absolute favorite restaurants! Many great menu items but the chop salad and Italian sausage flatbread are 2 of my favorites.
Love this place! Great food and great service!
This was our first time to eat here. We all enjoyed our various appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts!! Our server Conner was outstanding. He guided us through the menu and wine list, and went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of. We were looking for a new (to us) place to eat north of Seattle, as we live on Whidbey and want to avoid I-5 due to the viaduct closing. 5 Restaurant Bistro is the perfect antidote to Seattle traffic woes!
The server and cooks were fantastic with my food sensitivities. I got to enjoy food and drinks without compromising flavor!
Our server wasn't the friendliest, by any stretch of the imagination. The bartender was great, though. I had a drink while waiting for my family to arrive for dinner and he was very jovial. Also- this restaurant really should offer at least a scoop of ice cream for birthdays.
This is our go to area restaurant for a date night. Good food, friendly service, nice atmosphere. Especially great in the summer when the back patio is open. I go here regularly.
