Used to have great food. Just got back from an unbelievably subpar brunch. If you like a mush of eggs and questionable ingredients (tomato paste? it is Sept. 1st, tomato season no less, come on!) thrown into a dish and broiled to dry death this is the place to go. Really disappointed in what used to be a good restaurant.

I took my friend here who was visiting the city and both he and I were impressed with everything. We sat outside and th patio was great, but the interior of the restaurant was so chic and beautiful that it made me want to miss out on the nice patio weather! The service was amazing- from our cute waitress to the 2 friendly hosts. Everyone was so pleasant. The food was great. He had the burger and I had the Buttermilk Chicken- both were fantastic. The sauteed spinach was just ok, but I would go back to this restaurant in a second!

I am a very harsh critic when it comes to New American restaurants, being that there are so many that aim so high yet fall so short. This is not one of those. Not even close. Five Points was outstanding from start to finish. The wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the food was phenomenally fresh and savory. I will definitely be back!

This place was a second choice over a place in midtown and boy are we glad we decided to go to Five Points. The restaurant was excellent. The earthtones, greenery and black and white ceiling were all so calming. The great thing that I did notice was unlike other restaurants that try to pack as many people in as possible, no not here, the tables were very evenly spread out and I didn't feel like I was in someones lap at the next table. The food was delicious and very reasonable. The waiter mentioned that it was his first night but we hadn't a clue until he told us. The fresh potato gnocci is to die for and the raspberry tart with vanilla ice cream was devine. I'd recommend this place to anyone. In fact, we are having some friends in from LA next month and plan to take them there for the Sunday $5 martinis and fresh lightly battered onion rings. I guess we'll get entrees and dessert too!!

It was a very pleasant experience. I chose to go there with a friend based on their zagat rating, and we were very pleased with the service and the quality of our menu selection. After I read the other reviews, I confirmed that truly everything in the menu looked just wonderful, especially the banana filled french toast... looked sinful.... i didn't get that though, I ordered the arugula goat cheese fritata, with a side of home fries. I don't think I am a fan of fritatas in general, the reason being that i don't like my eggs crisp, but rather fluffy, so if you're like me... skip the fritata. The goat cheese was the main factor of my decision. My friend ordered the smoked salmon hollandaise, and that was truly savory. I loved the home fries, they were light and sprinkled with the seasalt that was on our table, they truly were a delight. To top our brunch, we ordered one of the two special desserts for that day, the rasbberry tart with mascarpone ice-cream, and it was scrumptious. Enough to share. Portions are very appropriate and the service is very attentive. LOVED it :-)

Every thing was great, but a reservation is a must, because they were extremely busy, even at 2:30 in the afternoon. The decor is pretty, the staff is friendly, although at times a little hard to get their attention, but i let that go considering the place a was jammed. The food was very good, everything was fresh and nicely presented. I ordered the lemon ricotta pancakes, which were delicious. Light, not too lemony, not too sweet and served with warm maple syrup(yum) Here's the one minor glitch, there are 6 silver dollar pancakes, and that's it. Silver dollar pancakes are small, so i would have like a side of fruit, a little something else, because for $12.00, it was a tad sparse. My friends thoroughly enjoyed their meals...one ordered the asparagus fontina fritatta, the other the 3 eggs in a crock...i sampled both and they were very tasty. We split the lemon tart for dessert, and wished we had each ordered our own. Even after the place emptied out and the brunch craziness subsided, they left us alone to chat, and only presented the check when asked...nice touch. I fully intend to go back, many times!

This place was the perfect Saturday brunch destination on a beautiful day. The food was fresh, creative and everything on the menu looked delicious. My girlfriend and I started with a Ceasar Salad, I had fish tacos and she had the Huevos Rancheros. Service was a little slow, but the place was packed! Absolutely worth the wait. Would love to go back for dinner.
