Always a great time!
We had a lovely experience at Five -- since they opened back up. The service was great and they have a great outdoor patio!
Skirt steak was delicious and Oysters are the best. Dry the Brown Derby
Good food and friendly service. Really busy on Friday night.
Love this Edmonds gem!! Great Scratch Distillery cocktails. The flatbread pizzas are fantastic but the arugula salad and the chopped salad are big time:)
Been to Five 6-7 times in past couple of years. Never disappoints. Food choices are plentiful and portions are generous. Our server Timmy was great.
We eat here regularly. It is regularly excellent and it was again for this latest visit. Keep it up, Brad!
Would have never stopped here without a friends referral. So glad we did. Food was cooked perfectly. One of the best pork chops I have ever had. Great wine list. Highly recommend reservations. Will be going back for sure!
Great service! Food was excellent, though wish there was more seafood with the linguini dish. I will be back!
The food is consistently excellent (have dined here many times over the years). The service tonight (an especially busy evening) was great!—friendly, personal and efficient. Cozy ambiance.
Only disappointment was no pizza on Valentine’s Day. That was always a nice appetizer. Great deserts and Steaks were really good.
Food selections are good. Service is good. The room has no carpeting to absorb sound so when several diners are talking & laughing, it feels quite noisy.
Five Bistro never dissapoints, special occasions or anytime.
Loud but acceptable. Had chicken piccata. They totally forgot our lemon caper sauce. Garlic was burned on the broccoli. Has to be a misstep and this has been an awesome place.
Simply put....this place was great. Love the eclectic relaxed French decor. Very comfortable as a date night, quick bite or celebrating something special. Delicious twists on some old favorites. They also have a full bar. Can not wait to try out the outside patio room in the summer.
The service and the food were quite wonderful. The waitress was exceptionally attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. What was not exceptional was the seating hostess. As soon as we checked in she made a huge deal about the fact that we had brought our infant daughter with us. We made a reservation for two and somehow an infant on one of our laps somehow counted as three. It was terribly inconvenient for her and she just didn’t know where she was going to put us since we didn’t mark three instead of two. It really put a damper on the experience as soon as we walked through the door and was just a prime example of terrible customer service. My wife and I contemplated immediately walking out and probably would have had it not been for our waitress. If you can get past how rude they are at the front desk you just might enjoy your meal. We live and work in downtown Edmonds and both were appalled at such poor customer service.
While the food was great, the service was so bad (non-existent) that it really had a negative impact on our lunch. They were training a new server and unfortunately neither the trainer or the new server took care of us. We sat for 15 minutes before they both came to the table. After our food arrived, we were ignored for 90 minutes. No 'how is everything?' (one of the entrees was wrong but it looked good so we kept it), no water refill, no 'would you like to see the dessert menu?' (we did want to - I was treating my colleague to a birthday lunch), no 'would you like your check? (YES! We need to get back to work!) Meanwhile, the diners in the other waiter's section arrived after us, were served before us, had refills on beverages, had dessert, and all got and paid for their meals before we finally asked for our check. We asked the waiter who was training for our check; he looked at the new guy and the new guy looked at us like he didn't realize we were his responsibility. The food was great however. Just very poor service due to (we think) lack of communication between the person training and the person being trained.
Excellent food and drink and staff, cozy atmosphere, and unlike SO MANY Seattle-area restaurants, actually warm and comfortable inside!
FIVE does not disappoint. Food & service are fabulous!
Food is always so great. It doesn't disappoint, and I have introduced multiple people there. Pizza is my favorite, but the pastas and the appetizers are great alternatives and add-ons, respectively. Service is friendly as well.
Awesome restaurant. First time there. We went for my wife’s birthday. Everyone loved their food. The calamari was the best I’ve ever had. Amazing service!
This was an ok dinner. 1). Stingy pour for happy hour wine. 2). Server seemed annoyed by questions, wanted to hurry us. 3). Child’s spaghetti was very large rigatoni... too large for a 4 year old. 4). Pizza crust was described as very thin.. medium at best, although very tasty. If a few things are paid attention to I’d give this a 4. Server that we flagged down was awesome. Maybe just a bad day for ours?
We have been to Five on several previous occasions and had good experiences. However, this time,
we, despite having reservations, were seated with our party at a table near a wait-station and our request in the reservation for a window table was ignored. It was a dinner and we expected a more "dressed" table, but no table cloth. We had a salad course, but no fresh flatwear for our entree.
We were not as "serviced" as we expected from previous visits and similar establishments. My husband,
who did request spicy on his pasta dish, remarked that it was almost inedible, which for him is quite a
statement. Granted, he did not remark on this until later, but we were hosting friends and he did not
wish to bring a negative element to our evening.
Our waiter was pleasant but largely absent after serving courses. It did seem to be a busy night, but
nothing out of the ordinary and we have dined in other places with a greater press of client (Artusi)
where they achieved much greater presentation and service. The end result is that we will probably
return at a later date but will not consider you a place to bring friends and family.
Delicious and inventive take on "old classics", stellar service, welcoming space, outstanding value, a real sleeper that shouldn't be passed by
Birthday dinner with my wife and parents. Easy location, great ambience. Made reservations just in case though it wasn’t busy being 6:30 on a Tuesday. The hostess greeted us and seated us right away. We tried drinks, apps, salads, entrees, wine, dessert and coffee. Everything was so delicious and our server had good suggestions when you needed a tie-breaker. You can’t go wrong. This is a great place for low-key, tucked away special occasion with a nice atmosphere that’s hard to get when your budget is spent on waterfront rent. The only view you’ll need is your loved ones. Enjoy!
Nice meal, good vibe. A bit speedy.
The food & service is always good. It is a lively place so it can be noisy if you want a more intimate or quiet meal.
We go at least once a month. It's a family favorite.
Charming place to enjoy New Year's Eve. Five is always reliable, providing good food and service.
We had a great waiter with perfect timing.
The food was well prepared. It was just a bit noisy when we arrived due to a family with young children.
Me and my husband took two of our friends to dinner on New Year's Eve at FIVE. We were pleasantly surprised that we could even get reservations for NYE on short notice. I had the Organic chicken breast. My husband had the Chicken piccata. Our friends ordered Rigatoni and Carne Asada skirt steak. My chicken dish was excellent. The veggies were cooked to perfection and the seasonings were delish. The chicken was crispy and moist and tender. My husband said his piccata was one of the best he has had. Our friends enjoyed their meals as well. We ordered bread pudding for dessert and it was the bomb! We all will definitely go back and highly recommend FIVE to everyone. Our server was attentive and had a great sense of humor. All in all it was a great evening.
Lively and fun local place with a great vibe.
Wonderful food and service (by Tim). So great to have a local restaurant that caters to a neighborhood, offers excellent food and is small enough to feel intimate.
We had a delightful dinner here tonight. I chose the chopped salad and a pear Gorgonzola pizza, both of which were delicious. I would order them both again. My husband had the chicken piccata served with mashed potatoes and broccoli. He said everything was very tasty.
My husband and I LOVE Five! This has become our go-to spot for date nights, birthday dinners and where we bring family when they visit! They have a small kids menu that doesn’t disappoint our toddler when we bring her (pizzas/pastas). We love every single item on their menu and have never once had a bad entree! So delicious! The service is great and we love the cozy, warm vibe. The outdoor patio is great to take advantage of in warmer months. It’s a good idea to make a reservation as they are usually on the busy side! They do have a small bar as well.
My favorite restaurant these days!!!
Lovely evening with friends
The food is usually excellent. On the night we had dinner though, it was tasteless. Beautifully prepared but without any seasoning at all. I hope it was simply an off night.
Yes, but would let them know that the noise level was very loud, could not have a conversation across the the table, only with the person right next to you. Also some of thre portions were small compaired to the price.
Relaxed atmosphere while still having that special place feeling. Great food. Wonderful service. We will certainly be back!
Good food! Gluten free as well. Rigatoni spicy was delicious
