The food here is good but when my husband and I showed up at 8:30 one night and the kitchen was closing at 9, we were treated very badly. Nobody came over we had to finally go find someone to help us. Not sure who it was but it was a guy and he had a definite attitude. So we... More

Came here last Friday night for a holiday work party. Very loud and we could hardly hear each other. We had a preset menu; wine was good. I ordered the goat cheese and beet ravioli... Awful.. Needs to be taken off the menu. I love beets and goat cheese, so I was really excited to try this dish. I would... More

I went here by myself one night just because I heard they were having one of my favorite bands playing. When I arrived the band was setting up and the bar was already packed! I found my way to the front and ordered a delicious glass of white. It was a nice pour and I really like when places are... More

I went during restaurant week and was not disappointed. The spicy salmon tartare would bring me back, if nothing else! Everything we had was delicious, and the non-RW menu looked appetizing as well. I look forward to returning here.

Had a occasion of a Christening to eat at this small but fabulous restaurant. The bill of fare was done in great taste. The appetizer selection was at least 12 to choose from. I chose the veal meatballs. It was presented in a meat sauce and quite delicious. The main coarse was chosen very well by my Nephew and Niece.... More

Celebration of family. Veal ravioli tasty and saucy. Great pickle and olive on stick with the scrumptious 55 burger. Servers were attentive and prompt. Quite lovely. Right by the train stop. Outdoor patio is intimate and friendly.

Excellent dinner, with a few choices each among seafood, beef and chicken. Good salads and apps. Wine list is good, but on the pricey side. Food was prepared very well, with a nice presentation. Only negative: Very noisy venue; difficult to carry on a conversation.

I recently had my bridal shower here, and although I was not involved in the planning as much, I can say that the event went off without a hitch.

Don't get me wrong. 55 Degrees offers great food and fine wine. But the part I like best is the old diner known as Larry's, which was formerly on Main Street, subsequently moved to the side street, where this restaurant was built and attached behind it. Most folks may prefer to eat in the modern part, with vaulted ceilings. For... More
