Tonight was our 30th Anniversary dinner. When making our reservation, we asked for a nice table because it was our anniversary. We were seated by the window and greeted with a note congratulating us on our anniversary, a nice unexpected touch. We went for the tasting dinner, paired with small pours of wine with each course. Each course was outstanding, with both the cooking execution and service done with care and professionalism. The Wagu tartar was outstanding, the mussels were the best I have ever had anywhere. My wife's main course was the truffled lobster, and it was also outstanding. Well worth the price, and I recommend the Five Fifty Five without hesitation.

Dinner out with friends who had never been to 555. New Fall menu... we had Snell salad, mushroom soup, roasted chicken, steak & truffle fries, and mussels by Chef Kyle and his team which were all amazing! Chestnut cake with an utterly decadent cocoa sorbet, blackberry cobbler, and cider toffee cake made by Pastry Chef Yazmine and Pastry Sous Chef Courtney that were all exceptional! Thank you once again for another exceptional dining experience. We will be back!

I have been to 555 many times over the past decade. Portland has lots of excellent restaurants so it can be hard to make a choice but we find ourselves returning to 555 again and again. Staff is well trained, menu is everchanging and food is well executed. The bar is also a very nice place to enjoy a cocktail. I highly recommend this restaurant!

HH here is 5pm to 6.30pm only in or at the bar. Excellent bartender this week, for hospitality, friendliness and skills. Good job Keenan. HH is a snack (from a choice) with a pre chosen wine or beer for $12. So $6 + $6. Also on a Thursday evening they serve 3 other snacks for $5 each. We enjoyed the oysters 5 for $5 and the macaroni cheese . Their truffle fries just might be the very best in town. Also liked very much the warm Caesar salad. Nice one.
