    We met friends at Five West for Sunday Brunch. We're regular customers but it was the 1st time for our friends. The food was delicious and we had excellent service provided by Heidi. We'll definitely be back and now so will our friends!

    Nice place and good food. Service was very good. It was kind noisy, but the place was also extremely busy. I would suggest reservations if you are going here for dinner. We made reservations and we were seated almost immediately, it looked like a long wait for those who didn't reserve a table.

    We have not visited Five West very much as the noise level is usually intolerable. It is not only painful but makes it difficult to converse to anyone across the table. In the summer when it is possible to sit outside we frequent Five West a lot. A previous long tome server told up that she goes home after her shift she usually has a throbbing headache. That aside , the menus has its of options and the food was guide good. Our server was exceptional.

    Service was quick and we were always being tended to. Food is priced around $20 and up. Noise level is not to loud where you have to shout to hear each other talk. Spacious and clean.

    5 West is our go-to spot for a a classy meal at a moderate price point. We made a quick stop on NYE for appetizers and cocktails. The seasonal brie was delish and the server was delightful, even though she was quite busy.

    I was disappointed this time, a first for me. Service was poor. I went with a couple other friends for brunch, and after the first cup of coffee, we didn’t get attended to for more than 30 minutes. Had to go get the manager, after which whatever issue was there, disappeared. Waitress was unapologetic. Restaurant was really crowded which speaks to popularity, but didn’t keep up with quality service.

    In general the experience was not much different than usual. However the wood grilled pork chops were disappointing this time. In the past they were thick, juicy and warm on delivery to the table. I've had them many times. Last night the chops were thinner than before, a bit overcooked, which left them dry and a bit tough. The chops and potatoes were barely warm, although the flavor was still as good as before. Just not as appetizing. If the use of thinner pork chops is part of a financial move, I'd rather have a single thicker chop than 2 thin ones like last night. The other 3 meals at the table were the normal quality, so we're still Five West fans. Just disappointed with the changes noted above.

    Daughters bday. Booking on here and leaving special notes that are NEVER READ, is disturbing. We had to remind the waitress that it was our daughters birthday. Wrong fries were brought. Service was slow but she rushed us when we needed time to decide. Wrong check presented. Took a while for her to attend to us in between. Felt like it was not well staffed as usual. The wrong fries tasted nasty-

    We are senior citizens and met another senior citizen couple. It was difficult to carry on a conversation. We were in a room with little ones (which we love) but the noise level was a bit much for any kind of table talk.

    The only thing that bothered me about this place is that I wanted to order every single thing on the menu. Our server was great. She had informed answers to all of our questions, and assisted us in deciding on what to order, as we had never been before. We were in town for a show, but if we are ever back in Rochester for anything, we don’t need to look anywhere else for a restaurant to eat at. The food was amazing. Wish there was one in the twin cities.

    My wife and I are repeat customers. We live about an hour away from Rochester, but when we're planning on a nice dinner out, Five West is our top choice. Excellent food, great service, wonderful atmosphere. We capped off our dinner this night with the cinnamon waffles and ice cream for dessert, which was delicious!

    Hard surfaces and packed restaurant result in noise levels limiting conversation. Better ways to enjoy good food.
