GREAT SUNDAY BRUNCH
By bellmoremum on 2/17/2003
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.

I eat here a few times a week - have never had a bad experience. All the food is amazing and the staff and owners are friendly and welcoming.
Try the Ricotta Fritters and Die Happy

A nice space with a surprisingly tasty and varied brunch. The subject line says it all. Food taken seriously here, it seems. I look forward to returning for dinner.
Overall, Very Good

Everything about this place works, the food was delicious and the portions were more than what most places serve. The food took some time to get out of the kitchen and one item had to go back, the steak was too rare, but I would go back.
Best Bacon this Side of the Mason-Dixon
By hungryjacq on 11/3/2003
Okay...I know it sounds ridiculous to be so excited about bacon (and those who don't eat pork won't be impressed by the distinction anyway) but really, it's FANTASTIC! I ordered the huevos rancheros with a side of bacon. As splendid as the huevos were, I wanted MORE BACON! Which is not to say that the portions aren't generous, b/c they are. I couldn't even finish the huevos rancheros, which were delightfully prepared with a spicy salsa and guacamole baked in. Also had one of the specialty bellinis. This restaurant is easily a favorite and is likely to become my brunch spot of choice!

Went here for Brunch. The food was out of this world. The best Bloody Mary I've had in a while. The roasted eggs were perfectly made. Service was a bit vague, but it was rush hour Sat brunch. Definitely worth returning to several more times. Good looking crowd.
Five Points for Five Poiints!!!
By ywwan on 12/23/2005
This is a wonderful restaurant. Its just a fantastic atmostphere - the decor is very clean (but I would not call it zen) and its very lively but never too loud or too stressful. I have had wonderful dining experiences here - its another neighbourhood place for me but I think I love it best for Sunday brunch. And I don't even normally like American food. So many restaurants claim to serve the best Sunday brunch... I would say Five Points is up there although I would not say THE BEST. The drinks by the pitcher to start always helps. And I love eggs on Sundays and they pop theirs in the oven. Its terrific and so originial! Not fried or scrambled.... And the bacon is amazing! Yes, they are definitely a top contender for THE BEST. Dinner is terrific too... and I don't even like American...
No Criminals at Five Points
By dougkozak on 5/5/2008
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.
gorgeous interior - fabulous food
By toejam on 5/12/2008
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.
