They offer 5 courses meal for 65 which was a steal. Food was decent, oysters were fresh and scallops were made perfectly except my boyfriends steak was overdone.

Really enjoyed my meal at this restaurant. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was exactly what I wanted. The hangar steak was very tender, excellent fries and that was after a wonderful goats cheese salad. Nice selection of wine too. Wonderful ambience in the centre of Portland.

Celebrating our anniversary in Portland, Maine, , we chose Five Fifty Five and we were not disappointed. The staff was wonderful, prompt and attentive. The food, coming from a well run kitchen, was delicious (although a bit salty, however). We were treated to a couple of special treats because of our anniversary-which was very thoughtful. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Informed the restaurant that we would be celebrating our anniversary. As we were seated, there was a congratulatory sign and then waitress provided us with a glass of champagne. Service throughout the evening was spot on as well. My wife had the bosc pear salad that she said was wonderful...and my ceviche appetizer with pieces of crisp apple was perfect... More

We heard from the locals to try 555, and now I know why. It was delicious. From the bread and butter to the desert, it was all simply delicious. Best meal in Portland so far.

We had the 5 - course meal for a very reasonable $65 per person. Wine list was good as were the cocktail selections. There is also a chef's choice 7- course meal - but you do not have choices on this menu, so it is for the adventuresome. Table next to us had this and it looked delicious also. We... More

We met old friends for dinner at this classy restaurant and it was so much fun. I don't know what it is with me and red brick walls but it feels so inviting to dine in such an environment. Service was excellent and I really enjoyed their signature dish of truffled lobster macaroni and cheese on such a rainy evening.... More

Every course - salads, cheese board, entrees, and dessert - were absolutely phenomenal. Having dined at most of Portland's best, this is hands down my favorite. Ballet service is friendly, professional, and on point. Courses were times impeccably. I could not recommend this restaurant enough!

Usually, I'll not give any review if a restaurant disappoints. However, as there were 5 of us, and each of us was puzzled--experience did not match the reviews--I felt it imperative to 'speak-up.' The good news: the wine was great but expensive for a very small pour; our waitress was efficient and attentive to this large (demanding, finicky) group; and,... More
