Whether grabbing a bite at the bar or sitting down to a 5-course meal, 5th floor exceeds even high expectations. Don't miss their cocktails!

I had a great time with the other CitySeach Dictators last Thursday night as we got our Martini tasting on. We were greeted by our trusty Chief Dictator Gina and a tall glass of champagne. As we all got to know each other we formed small

I attended a Meet & Greet w/ fellow reviewers on a Thursday evening. It was a pleasant surprise inside the Hotel Palomar in SF. Exiting off the elevator I was enveloped in warm furniture, silky velvety colours & a wash of lights. Like

When you're ready to splurge, check out Fifth Floor for a fantastic meal. Check their websites, they have special events like beer pairings and wine tastings that really enhance the fine dining experience. Had an amazing duck dish here and my date had some scrumptious seafood.

We just had dinner with another couple last night at the 5th Floor. It was a great evening. Contrary to some other reviews, the service was very good. The wait staff had good recommendations to make and were very attentive.
The wine list is terrific although pricey. The food was very creative and artfully served.

The ambience was very nice. It is nice to have a restaurant that has style and still be able to carry on a conversation with your table mates.

I'm not a foodie, so I'm probably not qualified to speak on the food, but to my untrained tongue, it was excellent! The service and ambiance are perfect and left me wondering why we don't have anything close to this in LA!

My wife and I recently celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at the Fifth Floor we have for three of the past four years. We were a bit taken aback by the radical change in the decor. We missed the intimacy and quietness of the previous decor. However, our concerns about the change in Chefs were without merit as we enjoyed the very best evening of fine dining possible. The service was impeccable and the food including presentation met the definition of a perfect evening of fine dining. The entire wait staff was attentive without being intrusive, the wine recommendations perfectly complemented the meal, and the portions were in line with fine dining expectations. All in all a memorable dining experience.

The ambience is very romantic. It is very good for a special occasion. Funny thing is I went with my boyfriend just for trying something new, but the waitress just asked "What is the occasion?" I bet most people go there for really special reason.

My husband and I recently dined at the Fifth Floor and can I say, what an amazing evening! We have dined there on occasion since the place opened in '99 and have never been dissapointed! We started our evening out at the bar and had one of the most intriguing cocktails I have ever had... the menage poire, a beautifully crafted cocktail with Grey Goose's poire vokda! We did the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing, which was in our opinion the only reasonable option since we couldn't decided on what we wanted because everything just looked so good... and when it came to the wine... forget about it! What a fantastic list the sommelier has put together. We only felt right putting our pairings in her hands. Service was flawless as always! So all in all another perfect evening at the Fifth Floor.... we will definately be back again soon!

First time reviewer. I had to warn others. First, let me say, that I had already heard that the food, although good, was not worth the prices. But, we wanted to give the place a try, especially given the mixed reviews already listed here. The service was EXCELLENT, but that is the only good thing I can say about our experience there this week. Nicest people, really. The host, the sommelier, the wait staff -- everyone was great. And, they have an extensive wine list that is very impressive. That being said, we left thouroughly disappointed in our actual meal. Parts of it were good, but quite frankly, if you are paying this much, the food should be outstanding as well as the service. The parts of the meal that were good were the little in-between treats they did send out our way and our cheese plate that we ordered. But our appetizers, entrees and desserts were not good enough. My risotto appetizer was salty. Both of our entrees were bland and unfulfilling. Desserts were not even edible really, which sounds like a uncharacteristical thing to say about dessert in general, but it was probably the most disappointing part of the meal. And, fifteen minutes after our meal.... we were hungry again!!! I wish we spent all the money that we spent there on pretty much anything else. I really wanted to love my meal because the service was so great, but I didn't, and neither did my dining companinon -- so much so that I had to write this review. If you go to Fifth Floor, go for the ambience, have some wine and cheese and talk to the nice people, but do not order anything from the actual menu. I hope this review helps someone spend their hard-earned money elsewhere.

Featuring a crisp decor of cream-colored leather armchairs and dark, polished wood floors, this upmarket space feels clubby yet inviting thanks in large part to its professional and natural staff. David Bazirgan (Chez Papa Resto, Baraka)…
