Food was very good tonight as usual. Service was extremely slow which is unusual. Waiter was not attentive and gone for long periods. Other tables service seemed much better.

We are frequent diners at FIVE and I would say 95% of the time we can expect excellent food. This past visit something must have been wrong in the kitchen - I typically alternate between two dishes so I know what they should taste like. This is the first time where I did not finish and did not want a to-go container. I hope this is an isolated case.

Loved the back patio - food was delicious but just a smidge too high in price. Service was great as well.

We've gone to FIVE over several years with friends. It's a fun experience and the food is usually good. We particularly like the pizzas. Eating outside during nice weather is a bonus!

The seafood, lamb and pork chop looked amazing, unfortunately I ordered the carne asada. It was just ok, and the side of roasted potatoes were slightly under cooked.

The caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes was outstanding.

I've been here many times but haven't been recently. The restaurant seemed oddly empty for a Friday night.
I ordered the carne skirt steak, wasn't impressed. Under seasoned and tough. The rest of the party had pasta and pizza, they enjoyed it very much. Service was slow and inattentive but our waiter was friendly. My brothers ice tea was empty most of his meal until the end.

Love the outdoor patio for alfresco dining. Service was very good. Biggest disappointment of the evening was the Caesar salad which two of us ordered as entrees. The dressing was bland -- to the point of tasting almost like straight mayonnaise. Caesar salads at FIVE used to be wonderfully garlicky with just the right levels of anchovy taste. We had to ask for a side of anchovies to liven up the salad which helped a bit, but still missed the garlic. Hummus was good. Carne Asada was good. I do recommend this restaurant for the ambiance, the service, and most menu items. I'll just skip the Caesar in the future.

Food was generally very good, though not exceptional. Everything was cooked properly, including all the seafood. Full bar, but more limited selection if wines by the glass, or bottle. Very good service. Nice ambience, but inside gets a little loud if the place is more than half full. Try to get a table on the patio if the weather is nice.

Started off pretty good - excellent cocktails (grey goose martini & lavender bee's knees) and bottle of @mark_ryan_winery syrah. Kids mac n cheese was delicious.  First course of tuna tartare was not for us: it was a stack of tuna, massive amounts of pickled cucumber and onion +  huge pieces of not quite ripe avocado. The pickled veg overpowered the entire dish. I ended up scraping it off.  Next was a salad with garbanzo beans, chopped salami and tarragon dressing. Delicious, but overdressed. For dinner we had pizza with Italian sausage and caramelized onions which had so much potential, bit was undercooked and doughy. Crisp on top but limp from the bottom. The pear, prosciutto and cheese ravioli was amazing - the star of the night.  The icing on the evening was having a server drop a used knife with cream sauce in the hood of my sweatshirt that was hanging on my chair (which got all over my jacket & brand new purse) and no one noticed until I moved my chair and felt it. We mentioned it to the bus boy and our server, and no one really cared. Our server, after I requested, brought us soda water for me to clean it and said in a joking way, to send them the dry cleaning bill if I couldn't get it out. Kind of put a 'meh' on the evening.

Our appetizer took 40 minutes to arrive. When it finally did, calamari was okay It was very bland. Pizza was good. No explanation as to what took so long. Entrees arrived a little quicker. Experience was forgettable. Unlikely to eat here again.

We had a great meal at FIVE before heading into Downtown Edmonds for the wine walk. They have a charming patio area in the back that is great this time of year. We had pizza and seafood. Both were excellent. We enjoyed our first visit there very much.

Great food, love the spot. They do not have happy hour in the weekend anymore tho, so prices are a bit high for what you get. $11 guacamole. $17 pizza for 2 - ya know, just a little on the high side, but the food is really good. Service was a little odd at times. Love sitting out back on the patio

We split the chop salad and the prosciutto pizza. The salad was outstanding, but the pizza was lacking in flavor and the prosciutto was very tough. Service was strong all night.

The food was excellent. The ambiance was casual sheek & relaxing. Really recommend adding cushions for everything. The wood seating is nice but like sitting in a church pew all day. Probably just my age but honest comment to be sure.

This is our favorite restaurant when we take our parents out. The food and service are fantastic and it's a great location. They also have a great wine list and have lots of flexibility for people with food allergies and preferences. I always get a fish dish and my husband loves their flatbread pizza's. We've never had a bad meal at FIVE and look forward to our next visit. We love this place!

Best food in Edmonds....
No matter what you order!
Only suggestion: Our Starter plates sat on the table for a long time after we finished the food on them. When main course came, server had to clear and run to get clean place settings.

Five delivers a consistent, dependably good dining experience. The food is fresh and seems thoughtfully prepared. The service is friendly and attentive. The ambiance is versatile enough to handle a date night, a group of friends, or a family dinner.

We spilt a salad before dinner. It would be nice if they split the salad in the kitchen onto two plates or at least offer a second plate.
Service was slow.
The patio is wonderful.

FIVE was wonderful as always. The patio is awesome and the service was great. I highly recommend the Halibut-soooo good. It was my husband's birthday and they put a candle in his dessert-a nice touch and I didn't have to use the candles I had brought. Can't wait to go back.

I’ve eaten here several times and have always had good food & service. Tonight I expected them to be busy but the dining room was fairly empty. Four employees walked past us before we were acknowledged. Then after being seated we waited 15 minutes for our waitress to take our drink order. We ordered our food at the same time. Our salads came in a normal amount of time but we waited 30 minutes for our pizza to come after we finished our salads. The kitchen was not busy our waitress just forgot to order the pizza when she delivered the salad. When we left we walked past her and she completely ignored us. So disappointed in our experience.
