Wow. This is not my father's Portland, and 555 is not just another Maine eatery. Let's just say that I've been visiting the Pine Tree State for a very long time, and restaurants of this quality are a new (by my standard) phenomenon. We had...More

One of Portland's finest restaurant. Based on reviews we spent our first night's dinner here. We were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and very experienced in both the wine selection and the dinner menu. We thoroughly enjoyed both.

My wife and I had dinner here tonight. The food was delicious. It feels like the restaurant is working some bugs out as the summer gets into swing. It took a ridiculously long time to get our dinner. Our waiter was great, but he seemed...More

We were seated on the second floor. When we arrived at our table, they had paper printed with Happy Anniversary on it! Service was extremely prompt; our water glasses never fell below halfway. Food was excellent. They made a special occasion even more memorable.
