Not a good value. I went there this morning for Brunch. The eggs, were not tasty and the specials were a mushy mess in terms of presentation. Even the simplest of things on the menu like truffle grilled cheese sandwich were dry and uneventful. All in all the service and the look of this restaurant (and perhaps its dinner menu) are the only thing keeping it going. Apparently it is resting on its laurels due to the now overblown reputation it has. Trek uptown to Sarabeth's or try Pastis for a great well-rounded brunch meal instead.

A nice job on brunch. A few different items, i.e. fish tacos, baked custard brioche-based french toast, Nodine's bacon...good drinks i.e. Mexican Bloody Mary...Kid friendly...Mac & cheese yeah baby....nice & easy....

I can't say enough about Five Points. The food is of a three star caliber, fresh, of the season and well prepared. The menu changes daily, so you can go once a week and not be bored. Try anything from the wood oven, especially the pizzette. The service is always great, how do they get so many servers who seem to care so much about your experience at Five Points. I love the mix of people, young, middle, old, trendy, rich, not etc.

Great food. All the egg bake dishes are very good. Good service and atmosphere. I highly recommend this spot for brunch!

I went here for brunch with my best friend, and had some sort of baked eggs with bacon. It was dry and the bacon was slimy / uncooked. Yuck. I ended up just picking at it, because there was no flavor to it at all, just plain egg. I would not go back there for brunch, but have heard good things about the dinner menu.

The Five Points is a neighborhood favorite. The menu changes often, with lots of specials based around seasonal ingredients, and the food is always excellent. The pasta is consistently good, as are things from the brick oven. I have enjoyed the pompano recently, and would also recommend the fava bean hummus, salads, the artichokes,any pasta special (ravioli nudi, gnocchi), mac and cheese, and the lamb chops. The design makes for a great atmosphere and the drinks, breads, etc. all compliment the experience. Also, the desserts are fabulous, sticky toffee pudding, bittersweet chocolate tart, and the caramel tea. The service is very welcoming and friendly, and makes it feel like a comfortable, neighborhood place with above average food and no pretention. It's perfect for dinner any night and they do a great Sunday brunch.

We've dined at Five Points three times recently and found this to be an outstanding restaurant. Every staff member is friendly, helpful and desirous of making your meal an excellent dining experience. The bar has exellent drinks and the wine list has numerous, excellent selections. The breads, appetizers, and desserts perfectly complement the outstanding main dishes. The hangar steak and the striped bass were excellent. We recommend it highly and look forward to returning.
