Our meal at Five-O was very good. The service was a bit spotty; I prefer to have my appetizer plates cleared prior to the arrival of my dinner, but it was a busy night during a holiday weekend. We started our meal with cocktails; the bartender's choice martini, the Manhattan, and the coconut and ginger martini were all quite good. To start, we chose the snack offering, where diners are offered a variety of choices and can opt for five different items; we picked shaved prosciutto (it was run of the mill), provolone (two, thin, small wedges), warm olives (nice portion, pleasant tasting), meatballs (delicious) and pickle chips (also delicious). For a second appetizer we had the escargot, which was just so so. We asked to share the Caesar salad between two diners and they were nice enough to put it on two plates, each plate sporting half anchovy. The salad was an okay rendition. The entree star was the gnocchi with sweet corn and bacon; this was a meal worthy of a second visit. The bolognese, too, was well received. The strozzapretti with oxtail ragu and aged pecorino was good, as was the linguine with lobster and zucchini, but neither were memorable and both were a little heavy. We will go back to Five-O, it showed lots of promise; next time we'll choose a less busy weekend.

From far, best restaurent in town. Comparable to great Montreaĺ´s restaurents. Service is professionnal, food is very good, prices are good for food quality and experience, unlike a lot of places in Ogunquit. Will definitely go back!

From the cocktails through the dessert, this restaurant was superb. Congratulations to the chef who has accomplished what few others have done, impressed my husband!! We are terribly spoiled with all the traveling and wonderful restaurants that we have been to. My husband asked for the fried oysters and was impressed with the quality of the oysters themselves and more impressed with the lightly fried succulent oysters he received. He is not impressed easily. We will be back for more when we return to Maine in the Fall.

We jumped into a reservation here about an hour before arriving, hoping for the best. Everything was perfect. Everything. The food, service, timing, price...this was fine dining in a beach town, executed by people who know exactly what they are doing and do it all very well.
