Delicious salami chop chop salad and flat bread pizzas (the sausage and the prosciutto), and love the "famous" pizza oil. Wines by the glass list is pretty short for a "wine bar," and $16 for a lemon drop? In Edmonds? Waiter was aloof and inattentive, so we weren't made to feel special. Space is very loud -- seems family friendly and good for groups, but maybe not so much for a quiet couple like us.

The food was amazing! The pork chop was one of the best I’ve had at a restaurant. Highly recommend the Bolinhos De Chuva for dessert - so good!

this was my first time at this restaurant - it was near a clients office - I would go there again - the parking is a problem - spaces are limited and stripped too narrow for most cars today AND several of the businesses sharing the same parking lot have claimed several spaces for themselves so it was hard to find a place to park

We like Five because of the food and the ambience. On our last 2 visits however, we were placed at two of the worst tables in the restaurant that were rather dismal. On our last visit our server did his best but they were short handed and the service suffered.

To be fair, this is sort of our "go to" place in Edmonds, but it has been years since I've reviewed it and the ownership has changed since then. But that said, this is a great spot. The food is always top notch and they have always accommodated any changes we've made or requested to the menu. They have a number of regular dishes they have made since they opened and I, and my family, are glad they still make them. The Carne Asada has always been my favorite and it's great to know I can come back time and again and get that same great dish if I want - which I did want on our last visit.
From the friendly greeting by Elke the hostess (and she does much more than that - she runs the floor as well) to the great servers - Ryan, Randi, and others - it does not disappoint.
The drinks came quickly, the food on time, and the desserts were worth staying for.
Well done!

The food was excellent and somewhat inventive (good for "foodies.") There are both small portions and large platters. The attention to detail on each item was impressive - for example the baked salmon was delicious, as were all the side items accompanying it. The same can be said of the pork chop. The presentations are elegant. There are very good coffees available - not just token "restaurant" coffee but lattes, espresso and French press, very well prepared which is important in this area which abounds with excellent coffee houses. The espresso dessert was outstanding. The service was excellent too. A possible downside - it is not good for quiet conversation - the acoustics are poor and it is a lively place, hence a bit loud - but that seems to be a problem with most of the hipper, nontraditional dinner places so I would not let that discourage me and I'll look forward to returning.:)

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. It is away from downtown and I almost missed it. Our lunch was terrific. I had a seafood salad that was wonderful as was my friend's chopped salad. A pleasant bistro-ish atmosphere. Would definitely come again.

I called earlier in the day for a reservation, was told on the phone they don’t take same-day reservations, but come on in because not expected to be busy. So why not just take the reservation?!?

I asked about that while being seated, and the hostess said they do that because they don’t know how many reservations are coming in from open table. Hmm. So I got on my phone and while sitting at the table, was able to make a reservation for later that night.

So if I can do same-day réservations via the app, why not via a phone call?

Didn’t help that the overall tone and message was condescending.

Food was great, service was good. Feels like a place people go to stare at each other though.

Everything was excellent. The only negative I would say is that the prices were more than we expected - considering the portions were a lot smaller than expected. We came as a group of 8, and left comfortable, but not full. So, keep that in mind.
