gorgeous interior - fabulous food

The fabric covered walls in this beautiful interior lessen the noise in this gorgeous spot. Creative food - fried artichokes, roast pig, sea scallops - and perfect, but not hovering service make this place a keeper.

Enjoy Five Points brunch...it is outstanding! Our party of three - Mom, Dad and adult daughter - arrived early and waited in line enjoying the fine early-May sunshine. Upon opening, we were pleasantly greeted and brought to our inside table - not quite a Zen interior but clean and light with apple tree branches lining the restaurant center. We order the best bloody marys I've had in a long time and placed our food selections with Tabitha, leading a very well-trained professional team. While the restaurant and bar area filled quickly, Five Points never became noisy or uncomfortably cowded. Our food selections - eggs tinga, fritatta, and char grilled burger were scrumptious. A side of light and airy buttermilk biscuits were perfect. Can't wait to return soon for dinner.

We were looking for a great place to meet and celebrate a birthday for a group of 8. You must call for reservations. We were given the best table in the house. The food was excellent and different. Definately something on the menu for all. We started off with a few things to share along with pitchers of Mimosas and Bloody Marys. They serve amazing bread which is hard to turn away. We all ordered our own dishes as well, not knowing how full we would have all been from just the starters. The service was excellent and the servers are helpful and personable. The only bad thing about the entire place are the restrooms which are a flight down. The location is fantastic as you are close to Soho to walk and burn off some of the calories. A great place to start off a Sunday and a super location to end the perfect day. Can't wait to go back soon.. Too good to wait for just a celebration brunch.

2 citrus herb martinis and their amazing & famous potato pizza with a hot bartender, what more could you ask for? Did I mention that their cocktails are made with fresh ingredients, the citrus herb is made in house.

a wonderful, warm, welcoming and culinarily exquisite experience. Dinner Saturday night at the bar was a great night out. The food is fantastic - from home-made burrata to an exciting mix of chilled summer veggies to Montauk Bluefish. Folks are really nice. Interior and atmosphere is very cool. Just like it cousin, Cookshop, this is a place to go often!

Went here on a pre-theater date on Friday night. We had early reservations, which was unnecessary (6pm). We had warm up drinks at the bar which were great and split a salad and each had an entree. It was scrumptious. The baked pasta was tasty, and very cheesey, and the gnochi could have melted in your mouth they were so good. i want to go back and try them for brunch. the atmosphere is great and all the staff are so friendly. I would most definitely go back and eat everything on the menu! it's also not super casual but not super fancy so it's a nice, comfortable mix.

I've never had a bad meal at Five Points. Food, service and decor all good to great. Last time I was in, the table wasn't ready through no fault of the restaurant and the maitre d' immediately bought us two drinks. We probably didn't wait more than 15 minutes. It's little touches like that that make Five Points stand out.

Favorite Brunch

Five Points is a great place to grab brunch with friends. The home style cooking fits the bill on a Sunday afternoon after a fun filled weekend. Favorites include the mac'n'cheese - baked with a nice white vermont chedder, and poached eggs with pork sausage and a sweet creamy tomato sauce. Go with a group and order a pitcher of Bloody Mary or Morning Punch and you are good to go for the rest of a lazy Sunday afternoon....
