Every plate was an experience for your taste buds and well worth the price, wait staff is personable and quick, not an every weekend type of place for your average joe, but a special date, family occasion, or just a way to treat yourself, Fifth String is perfect.

Enjoyed our dinner! Food was good but I do believe the restaurant is overpriced a bit. They have awesome outdoor seating that are in single covered units. Staff was awesome.

The waitress was very nice and attentive. But the problem was that, after ordering, we got our appetizers first. Then it took one hour and 20 minutes to get our food. By that time we weren’t even hungry anymore. The waitress was very frustrated and apologized, but we didn’t even get any explanation from the manager, nor any apologies.

Sat outside in a plastic structure, heater was terrible compared to other restaurants, no speaker to connect to via Bluetooth like other restaurants. Bottle of wine we initially ordered was later found to be out of stock (this is why/how you update your digital menus to make them current — it’s easy!), my steak (wagyu) was not warm when served, plus our service took forever.

I do not recommend going here.

We reserved one of their greenhouses for a dinner out to celebrate a birthday and engagement. We had such a great time! Food was amazing, service was on point and we felt very safe with all their covid restrictions and protocols. We will definitely go back!

I went to The Fifth String on Sunday to celebrate my 30th Birthday. It was absolutely delicious. The outdoor greenhouse are very cute and provides a nice setting for an intimate dinner. Food was 5/5 stars. We would absolutely come back! We did order an espresso martini for dessert that was less than desirable. But besides that everything was perfect!

Ate here on Christmas eve - did not know what to expect about outdoor dining - these people hit it out of the park and exceeded my expectations - wonderful staff, delicious food, and overall a fun experience sitting in our own enclosed "greenhouse. Please go - you will not be disappointed!

A wonderful dining experience given the circumstances. The glass hut was fairly warm and comfortable, the tallow candle appetizer a simple yet tasty delight. The tasting menu was very good, and the short ribs were amazing. Service was constant but not obtrusive.

Our experience at The Fifth String far exceeded our expectations. It is very apparent how much thought, love and effort goes into every dish that come out of the kitchen. We had the tallow bread service which was unlike anything we have ever had and I can’t recommend enough. The short rib was not only huge but incredibly flavorful and not your typical short rib at all. I could go on about every item we ordered but trust they were all equally as delicious and impressive. In addition to all that, the staff was so knowledgeable and attentive and made our night so enjoyable. We can’t wait to go back!

My wife and I had a double date in one of Fifth String's private, heated greenhouses this evening. We ordered the beets, hamachi, and beef short ribs. Everything was phenomenal. I've made so-so short ribs in the pressure cooker before, but they manage to get it crispy on the outside, and render almost all the fat down so that it melts in your mouth.

The cocktails are great too (we all got a second round.) I don't think you can go wrong with anything from here. Definitely worth it!

Really fun to sit outside in one of the green houses. It was very cold and snowy that night and we were pretty warm. We kept hats and coats on and I had a lightweight down packable blanket that was helpful. The servers were extremely friendly even though I know they had to be so cold! The food was all wonderful.
