    The food was delicious and served exactly as ordered. It was seasoned well and hot. The coffee was great, but we never had enough. Our waitress came over to top us off, but we were empty. It was nearly impossible to get more coffee. Why don’t they just leave a pot of it for us? Very frustrating and often I had nothing to drink for my meal. Very loud and hard to even hear the people setting right next to me.

    Five West has the best brunch in Rochester. We have always had excellent food there. The veggie scramble is delicious and highly recommended. The hand cut garlic fries are also incredible. We often get the cheesecake as well, which is definitely a treat. The service at Five West is also fantastic, Aaron, Kim, Jackie, Colleen, and Chloe are exceptional! We are very appreciative!

    Absolutely love this place to meet friends and family from Minnesota. We live in Onalaska, WI so it's about 1/2 way for all of us. Wait staff is amazing as is the food. One thing I am not sure about is paying for the health and wellness of staff on my check.....I think that is something the owner offers and pays for with their employees.

    It was freezing cold in the resturant. Had to dine with coats on. It was around 32 degrees outside. Not one of our below zero days. The garage doors were not great to sit next too.

    Food was great….service was great, but the 2% add onto the bill paid with by American Express for” employee wellness” was a sneaky BS move in my opinion….raise your prices if you need to but sneaking it in without telling me results in me never returning. And yes, it was only $.87 and I have that, it is the principle.

    Five West is the best place to celebrate. The food is amazing (we favor the Salmon Rice Bowl), there is excellent wine, and desserts are delicious. The service is excellent as is the ambience. Five West is our go-to place for celebrations.

    Amazing dinner at one of our favorites. Cranberry Crush Margarita is a winner. Flank Steak Salad and Salmon Tuscan Penne are great. Sides of Szechuan Cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts are not to be forgotten. Topped off with Seasonal Cheesecake to go, not just any dessert, the Pastry Chef is out of this world. To Roark and the crew and especially Aaron our server Thanks.

    As always, the food and beverages were very delicious. We wondered if they were short staffed last night. It was incredibly slow. The food came in a timely manner, but we had to wait a very long time before they took our drink order and then the second drink order didn't make it to the bartender. The person that delivered our food asked if we needed anything else and we wanted another round of drinks. It was quite a while before we saw our waitress to check on the drink order. We finally got the drinks when we were done eating. If there is anyway to speed up drink orders that would help with the wait. We don't mind having to wait. Having a drink helps the time pass.

    This is the first time I have had dinner there I had two guests along and they were very happy with the overall evening. From check in to check out, it was very good. The service was excellent, the waitress was excellent and offered advice on all questions. I had the walleye and one of the guests had the pork chops. The food was excellent. I was offered a discount fir Veterans day which was unexpected but very much appreciated. We will return

    Had the plant based pineapple fried rice and loved it! Portion size was great for the money, couldn’t finish it all. Crunchy plant based chicken tossed in a tangy spicy zingy sauce! Would get this again next time I visit! There were a few other vegetarian and vegan friendly dishes. Upscale modern American fare with a unique twist!
