    We recently went to the Five Fisherman (FF) with friends. We're not really seafood people, and have generally shied away from "seafood" restaurants, but FF was a delight! From the ambiance to the service, the experience was top-notch. My wife and I ordered from the "land" and "from the grill" menu (I ordered a side of scallops!), and unlike some seafood specialty restaurants, the prime rib and filet were cooked to perfection. This restaurant will now be in our regular rotation!

    The most amazing food, so well prepared. Only slight negative, server was very attentive to male customers, with very limited interaction at our table of 2 females. I would recommend the restaurant for the wonderful food.

    We came here for our anniversary and it was so wonderful! Service was outstanding and the food was amazing. Easy to accommodate my dietary restrictions as a vegetarian.

    This evenings food experience was less than stellar. I have been there numerous times but this time the food quality fell short. When you pay $50.00 plus for an entree, it should be five star without exception. The lobster tail on my Five Fisherman platter was disgusting. Way overcooked and completely dried out. My husbands ribeye was 50% grizzle and fat and a struggle to get through with knife provided. Service was stellar and ambiance very good. Seeing patrons wearing baseball hats during dinner in a restaurant this calibre of dining is annoying.
