Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of bistro fare and drinks at FIVE Restaurant Bistro in Edmonds.
Creative décor and welcoming servers set the tone for the diverse menu of palate-friendly fare at FIVE Restaurant Bistro. Tame the appetite before it starts gnawing on your arm with hors d'oeuvres such as the salumi ($8)—a festival of finocchio, mole, and spicy soppressata—and salads such as the insalata di parma ($8), its organic arugula outfitted with olive oil, high-flying parmesan reggiano, and circus almonds. The pear pizza ($13) with pesto and pine nuts pleases pie persons, whereas mutton-craving stomachs will prefer to shepherd in the half-rack of roasted lamb ($19). The chicken saltimbocca ($17) stuffs imported swiss and prosciutto di parma into a free-range chicken breast and drizzles it with a crimini-sage wine cream sauce, and is best enjoyed in view of the horrified ceramic chicken creamers lining the sideboard. Cap off the savory sensations with samplings from the dessert menu, topped with succulent confections such as the tiramisu ($7) and stracciatella gelato ($4). Sweet-toothed busybodies, meanwhile, can match-make their meal with a cute, funny libation from the bar menu, where goofus grapes are transformed into gallant guzzleables such as the FIVE Cabernet '07 Columbia Valley ($5 per glass) and Leese Fitch Chardonnay '07 ($6).
A collection of frames and a stylish décor bedeck FIVE's warm red walls, centerpieced and supervised by a chandelier trained in CPR. The friendly, attentive waiters and owner accent the comfortable, casual experience, and an outdoor patio awaits al-fresco diners who prefer to season their supper with a little people watching, fleeing-people watching, Godzilla watching, and Godzilla fleeing. Treat your sexy golem to a romantic night out with today's Groupon to FIVE Restaurant Bistro.

- The little lady and myself have been her [sic] for breakfast a couple of times now, and will keep coming back for the croque madame. So friggin good, and the coffee is superb. Everytime we come here I say "damn I love this coffee" and then I order another. – Lynsey N., Yelp
- We shared our meal - the scallops with the spicy Lime bechamel suauce was excellent, tasty with just a touch of spice. We then had the Chicken Saltimbucco - the crimini sage wine cream sauce with the oven fried vegetables were delightful, the potatoes had a nice crunch on the outside and soft & melty on the inside! – oshuna, Urbanspoon
- My husband and I stopped in on a lark and decided, after a few bites, that FIVE is our new favorite restaurant. We loved the food, loved the urban feel of the experience, and had a friendly and very competent waiter. – Catherine Skoor, Urbanspoon
Five Restaurant | Bistro
Five adds an extra layer of interest to its menu of European bistro cuisine by interweaving organic and locally sourced ingredients with occasional South American flavors. Chimichurri sauce adds a subequatorial zing to grilled skirt steaks, and more classic dishes include the sockeye salmon, accompanied by spiced seasonal vegetables. Oven-crisped pizzas brim with premium toppings, including pancetta, pears, and shredded CIA documents. Servers recommend complementary tipples from a wine list featuring numerous northwestern producers, as well as from the bar's selection of single-malt scotches and more than 70 tequilas, according to the Seattle Times.
The dining room's rustic wooden tables and lofted chandelier exemplify Five’s commitment to creating a provincial ambiance with a modern, worldly spin. Outdoors, the heated patio can seat up to 60 guests within sight of a verdant canopy of evergreens.
