We got to choose five small plates which really suited my need to try everything. Nothing disappointed. The pumpkin soup,mussels, fuzzy udder cheese, awesome steak strips and carrot cake were beautifully presented and all delish. Yes there was a huge party so the service was a little slow. However this allowed us to savor the wine and chat. The wine... More

It was our last night in Maine so we decided to push the boat out and try the tasting menu, which we do sometimes in Europe to see a sample of the chef's skills and seasonal foods at their best - hopefully. As one of us loves seafood and the other is allergic to crustaceans, we were a bit of... More

We were extremely pleased with our dining experience. This place gets it right: service, food, atmosphere, right down to the small details that separates a very good restaurant from an excellent restaurant. Try the tasting menu and pair it with their wine selections. We loved it!

My girlfriends surprised me with reservations here after my engagement. Said they called weeks in advance. They had a congratulations card along with a bottle of wine on the table when we arrived! We were seated a little late but we weren't bothered. We got a combination of cheese as a starter ($15 worth fed all 3 of us) and... More

My dear friend took me for a birthday dinner. It was exquisite. Though a little pricey, it was well worth it. We enjoyed every bit of the experience!

My husband and I visited 555 on a Saturday night (reservations needed!). It was filled to capacity but we were seated immediately, right on time. From start to finish this was a quality experience. The ambiance is great - white tablecloths and nice settings, and they get it right on the noise level so that, despite the number of guests,... More

We chose to celebrate our anniversary here and were seated at a lovely table right in a window alcove. As we adjusted our chairs, we noticed the table wobbled. A server was there instantly, before we could even look for one, and leveled the table. The service was that stellar throughout the meal. We chose the seven course tasting menu... More

Very nice restaurant. Atmosphere was great, not too loud. Staff was very attentive and capable. Food was delicious. 3 of us had the hanger steak and fries. 1 order of the salmon. All cooked perfectly. Drinks were delicious. We split two carrot cakes. I was kind of wishing for more of that! A little too small to share. I think... More

The food of course was excellent. We picked a couple of small plates and one entree. In restospect we might have chosen the 5 course tasting menu ($65) and shared it (there is also a 7 course chefs choise tasting menu for $95). The waiter was very friendly and eager to share his impressions of Portland and the neighborhood. Clearly... More
