“Great dinner!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu. Service was friendly and efficient. Out waiter explained everything and answered all our questions. A 10 pm reservation insured that the dining room was quiet and there was not a lot of hustle and bustle.
Good relaxed atmosphere for some very good food.
This as our third time at 555. It is one of the best restaurants in Portland.

“Excellent service and innovative tasty food”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

We came here on recommendation of our hotel concierge and were not disappointed. The service was excellent and attentive and the five course tasting menu with wine was very good. The lemon butter with the bread was so good it's worth a mention. The only slight quibble is that if you are on the second floor above the kitchen, the fumes can go for your eyes but apart from that it was an excellent meal.

“good food but. ...”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Our first time here and we will not be back. The food was very good, but the choices very limited.
The main problem was that it was SO noisy. It has a 2 storey open dining room with no acoustic baffling. We were with friends and could not hear each other or the waitress. It didn't help that there was another group there who were literally shouting at each other throughout the meal.

“Outstanding! Creative, comfortable and delicious”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

We went to Five Fifty Five based on separate recommendations from two Portland locals. I had the 7 course chef's tasting menu, and my wife chose her own 5 course menu. The quality, freshness and creativity of the meal was up there with the finest restaurants I've ever eaten at, most of which cost far more. Our server was friendly and attentive, and the whole restaurant had a great casual elegance as well. I would very happily eat there again.

“Third Visit Will Mean a Fourth”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Five Fifty-Five (or 555) is a little bit different, a little bit edgy, and really worth a visit if you are in downtown Portland.

On this visit, I enjoyed a fabulous pork tenderloin/pork belly dinner preceded by a perfectly delicious celery root soup.

Terrific wine selection, including some new 555-labeled wines, and delicious desserts of you have room.

I'll be back.
