We ordered the duck and salmon, as well as the salad greens. The salad was good, as well as the duck. The salmon was average. Also, there was too much squid ink on the salmon plate. Just a side note, why do restaurants seat parties so close together when the whole rest of the restaurant is open?

If I could rate 3 1/2, I would’ve.

What a great spot. Our last night in Portland and when they say ‘save the best for last...’ Wow, I think we did.

I have to be fair to my other favorite new finds in the Portland area but this place is kind of in its own category... CREATIVE

Kudos to the chef for such an interesting menu, you can clearly see there was a lot of creative thought put into this.

The atmosphere is great for dates and groups and the service was awesome... these guys know their stuff.

From the hostess seating us to the server knowing every ingredient to the presentation of the dish... outstanding!

You guys are amazing and for sure are in the top few great spots for the real foodie in anyone... you’ll try stuff just to see how cool it comes out of the kitchen!

Thanks! See you next time I’m up that way!

Our dinner at the Five Fifty-Five Restaurant proved that business dinners don't have to be bland and forgettable. The fresh seafood appetizer starters set the stage for a memorable dinner of field green salad and scallops. The service was excellent and everyone left pleased and satisfied.

In a city with many first class restaurants, 555 holds it's own with the best. It has a creative and changing menu but some of its standards include a terrific grilled caesar salad and they usually have a very good hangar steak. The service is especially professional and there is also an excellent, varied and fairly priced wine list. Their bar is also excellent and one can get a first class meal at the bar as well as at a table. If you sit on the second floor terrace, it is fun to watch the open kitchen at work. The food is always excellent.
