Satisfied all around. The server was amazing! Food was delicious. Will definitely come back and even recommend. Can’t wait for the patio to open up for an even better ambiance.

Noisy, but delicious. Seems like our favorite calamari appetizer gets smaller and smaller, which is unfortunate. Enjoyed the food, but cannot stand shouting to my husband across the small table.

We came for lunch shortly after you opened. The place was freezing cold! the music was too loud for a comfortable conversation. We asked to have it turned down. Other than that the food is good as always and the waitress was nice and helpful. Our soup came out to us luke warm we asked to have it heated it was and tasted good. I always enjoy my visit to Bistro FIVE only next time I will not come with guests till your place warms up, we ate with our coats on and were still cold. Thank you for asking.

Consistently good. Everything is well prepared with some original ideas. My $29 Halibut was presented on a bed of tasty creamy farro, but the plain grilled halibut itself (which was perfectly cooked) needed a sauce. All the pizzas on the menu look good and are contemporary; a few non dairy selections would be nice since I’m intolerant.

An absolutely wonderful meal from start to finish. Not only were the food and drinks amazing, but our server Connor was above and beyond. He has an extensive knowledge of the food menu, spirits, and wine list. All questions we had were answered with confidence and ease.

To start we had the oysters and the sea scallops -- delish. Then we had the halibut and the pork chop. All were outstanding -- and the farro side dish with the halibut was exquisite. To finish the evening we had the berry crisp and the vanilla gelato with chocolate shavings.

Excited to go back and try more!

We're sort of regulars at Five and enjoy going there. We were disappointed to learn that they no longer have happy hour on weekends. We've also noticed that the food quality is not as consistently good as in the past (fish a little overcooked; dishes arrive a little cold; bread pudding that amounted to a pile of flavored bread cubes). However, service is consistently top notch (thanks, Tosh and Connor!). So are Gabe's cocktails.

This was our first time to eat here. We all enjoyed our various appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts!! Our server Conner was outstanding. He guided us through the menu and wine list, and went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of. We were looking for a new (to us) place to eat north of Seattle, as we live on Whidbey and want to avoid I-5 due to the viaduct closing. 5 Restaurant Bistro is the perfect antidote to Seattle traffic woes!

Our server wasn't the friendliest, by any stretch of the imagination. The bartender was great, though. I had a drink while waiting for my family to arrive for dinner and he was very jovial. Also- this restaurant really should offer at least a scoop of ice cream for birthdays.

There are few restaurants in the northend (145th-SR104) that a suitable for a nice dinner out. I've driven past 5 Restaurant Bistro for years but never tried it. We were pleasantly surprised by the menu and service. And only 10 minutes from our house! We'll definitely be back.

The place was packed. My friend had a walker and it was very difficult to get into and out of the restaurant without inconveniencing other customers to get up and push their chairs in to let us through. The tables were much too close together.

Great service and outstanding food and wine list. Our waiter added a candle to our guests desert when he heard it was her birthday. I did wish the notice level wasn't quite as loud as it made one of our dinner guests, who is a little hard of hearing g, uncomfortable.

I am a vegetarian and the menu is limited for that. The frustrating this is that several of the choices can easily be converted to vegetarian. The portabella mushrooms are amazing. That is a meal in itself with the side dishes. Please work on vegetarian options since this is one of my husbands top choice for the pork chop.

Delicious salami chop chop salad and flat bread pizzas (the sausage and the prosciutto), and love the "famous" pizza oil. Wines by the glass list is pretty short for a "wine bar," and $16 for a lemon drop? In Edmonds? Waiter was aloof and inattentive, so we weren't made to feel special. Space is very loud -- seems family friendly and good for groups, but maybe not so much for a quiet couple like us.

this was my first time at this restaurant - it was near a clients office - I would go there again - the parking is a problem - spaces are limited and stripped too narrow for most cars today AND several of the businesses sharing the same parking lot have claimed several spaces for themselves so it was hard to find a place to park
