We had an outstanding meal. Pat LaRocca is a great host and has a great team!!
You need to make a reservation for a quick service. Their food are healthy and delicious.
The success of '5' comes from Pat and his wife's deep personal involvement with their patrons! The ambiance is uniquely perfect though the lighting is too bright over the table and hurts my eyes (burned my eyes while in the Air Force). The food was extraordinarily great, the service was even better adding to an exceptionally memorable eating experience. '5', 'the Annex' and Max's are our favorite restaurants. '5' is a restaurant we often recommend to clients and friends!!!
The Waiter and bus staff were exceptional. The food as always was outstanding. The only glitch are the hostess staff who are to busy chatting and do not give the customer the attention that they deserve. When you leave a fine dining restaurant the girls should be a little more attentive and say thank you when you exit.
We were sat next to a large party and it was so noisy we couldn't hear each other across the table. We left as fast as we could after they sat the party next to us.
It was horribly rude to do that to us.
there was plenty of open room in the restaurant that they could have given us better seating.
We will not be back !!
Wonderful food and fabulous service. It becomes very tiring to hear, “I’m... and I’ll be taking care of you,” and then not have a clue what that means. The staff was great, professional, courteous, and friendly. The food was reminiscent of meals eaten in Italy. Everything was prepared perfectly.
A little disappointed by the restaurant. It said on yelp that the place was 'upscale, and classy' but it was lacking on both ends. It was rather casual, with very few exception, maybe more office attire. The place was crowded but not in a nice way- sometimes crowdedness feels good. this was just crowded. Our reservation was for 6 pm. We arrived at 5:50 pm and were seated promptly. Our server did not give us much info on their nonalcoholic beverages, other than Pepsi products- without any specific drinks...if I were a server, I'd say 'we can make any drinks virgin', but he did not offer that option either. So water was our drink of choice. Bread came out in a metal tin. No baguette, more like sliced bread from a bread maker. The chopped olive that accompanied the bread was a good, different touch, although rather bland. Olive oil/vinegar would have given it a bit of a kick. Prosciutto pizza was nice and good because prosciutto would make anything good, thanks to its flavorfulness; the dough was nice and thin, as I like it, but very tasteless if you ate it on its own, which I actually like to eat the crust but not in this case. My salmon was well cooked to my liking; my risotto was mushy. So overall, average. No ambiance. If there were any music, I missed it. If they were going for a romantic vibe, that too was amiss.
The food was excellent. The waitstaff were attentive and friendly. The overall noise level was very high - to the point it was a bit difficult to carry on a conversation.
I love this restaurant! The owners are always so nice and make you feel like family. The food is always incredibly good and I love how they chill the wine to the perfect degree! Our water was always filled up and that is something my husband really liked! This has been and always will be one of our favorite restaurants in town! Thank you for another wonderful dining experience!
Loved every minute of it. From the time we walked in our reservation was set headed to our table and the service was outstanding. Couldnt have been happier with everything. The Choclate Chip Bread pudding was reallly reall good.
Loved the updated healthy additions to menu. Delicious kale and asparagus with my salmon. And always Appreciate the warm welcoming words from Pat and Marina!
This place always delivers!
Food is amazing. My fave is the 5 Burger.
Great food and service!
Absolutely delicious food and excellent service!
JASON IS THE BEST WAITER.....VERY EFFICIENT AND FUN!
Food was great. Place was packed and LOUD. Not a very good choice to have a business dinner, if conversation is required. Service was slow but they were slammed.
We had dinner at 8:45 on a Saturday. The inside is nice, but too loud for a date or if you like having conversations with dinner without talking loudly over other people at different tables. There were a few groups sitting nearby who were all loud. The spinach salad was great, but our entrees lacked seasoning (we ordered the salmon over risotto, lamb chops and the linguine with clams) and the pasta was overly buttered. Definitely would not come back to eat entrees here. We also ordered the creme brûlée which was pretty good. If you’re going for dessert or salad, it’s a good pick but entrees are not up to par with Max’s Bistro/Ruth Chris/Flemings in my opinion.
Everything was good, food, service, price, but we just didn't like our table. Too close to other people. But overall it's a very good restaurant, will definitely be going again.
Love the food, but a little loud for a private conversation.
The food and service were excellent! It was a bit noisy, but it made for a lively crowd.
The environment was a little louder for a date but the food was good. We didn’t have silverware and when our food came out the waitress asked us if we wanted fresh Parmesan we said yes and she never came back with anything. So that was a little disappointing.
Always great food, drinks and desserts - love the variety of the menu. Perfect for a date or even a family night out.
Very busy Friday night! Glad we had made reservations.
Wonderful restaurant although a little noisy. Service was good and food excellent.
Great food, great atmosphere, friendly, fun feeling, warm - great place!
Great food owner is very personable and the quality is always top notch.
Love going to this restaurant! It’s our favorite Italian place to dine. Definitely get the Tuscan nachos and you have to try the marinara sauce!
Always have great food and service. I recommend this restaurant often.
Great experience, food/wine, service and seating. Will always make Five, a monthly dinning experience.
Our server was great, he knew the menu and very attentive. The problem was from the bar. There were extremely loud and intoxicated patrons. Your staff did not seem to care if anyone else was disturbed. It was only 5pm and these patrons were acting very drunk. I heard great things about Five from friends not internet.
I expect this at a bar not fine dining.
The service was great. The food was delicious. Loved the atmosphere felt romantic and cozy
Valentines Day dinner. Understandably busy. Service Excellant. Food came quickly. Overall great experience
Valentine’s Day at Five - what could be better. The food is always delicious and the ambiance is perfect. Service is attentive and friendly. One of the best places in Fresno.
Great Valentine’s Day spot for your love one . It was tight in the dining room due to the volume of customers and servers .
We understand that it was busy due to the Valentine's Day Holiday but our meal was disappointing. We usually love our dinners at Five. The Tuscan nachos were much smaller than normal, the capellini/angel hair pasta dish was over cooked (the pasta was mushy) and the sea bass was average. We will be back but our dinner overall was disappointing.
The service and food was fine, but it was extremely loud.
A Birthday treat that left everyone with a night to remember. 'You get what you pay for' and we got the best. Steaks were cooked to perfection (I'm not kidding). Our selection of the '5' left our guests with a sense of discovery at dining there. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the spirit of the establishment and themselves.
Wonderful experience. Looking forward to the next visit
Chicken rollatini was excellent. Salmon was amazing and my chicken apple spinach salad was so yummy with the vanilla poppyseed dressing. They brought us a special tiramisu to celebrate our anniversary. Brother in law ordered the Bananas foster and said it was the best. If I was to complain about anything it would be the noise level, but it was just a-lot happy people enjoying their food and company!
