    The staff was amazing and the food was well worth the price. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time!

    So pleasantly surprised to find this lovely Greek restaurant in Bellingham. So cleanly. The staff is warm & professional. The food is so delicious I accidentally ate too much! :-). We’ll be back & we are bringing our friends & family! Happy holidays (oh & their holiday cookies YUMMMMY). I forgot to take a photo of the food :-0

    Had something quite different from my norm for breakfast – gyro meat, mushroom, tomato, feta omelet. Quite good. Service was excellent. Pleasant smiles from every staff member I encountered. Definitely will return there for lunch or dinner.

    My favorite place to eat in Bellingham. Friendly service they make you feel at home. Highly recommended you can’t go wrong with any of the food.

    Relaxed yet class place. Good family atmosphere, the tree in the center makes a nice setting, and good mediterranean food. The Greek Burger is a really good burger. Baked Spaghetti is recommended too. They have all the Greek classics, spanakopita was my daughter’s favorite. I’ve been to almost all of the restaurants in Bellingham when I visit her, from the burger joints to higher end, this is easily one of the best places in town.

    Five columns is my go-to neighborhood restaurant when I want to relax. They have such a relaxed vibe and it really feels like a family run restaurant (because it is)! I think that’s another thing that I love about it. Soula knows exactly who we are and it’s only one of two restaurants in town where you feel welcomed into their space because they remember and know you. I love the ambiance, the color they use in their décor, the giant tree in the middle of the restaurant, and my favorite aspect is how CLEAN it is there. You cannot say that about many places these days. I’m not exaggerating when I say you could probably eat off the floor there. The floor never has any leftover food under the table from the last guests, everything is wiped clean, and you can tell there is a sense of pride in their ownership there. I feel strongly that that feeling transfers into the food a person cooks and that is also apparent at Five Columns.

    I will add more photos over time, but most recently we went back for breakfast after our dinner there the evening before. I love eggs benedict and theirs has a delightfully fresh hint of lemon in their homemade hollandaise sauce. The hashbrowns are cooked perfectly and portions are generous with all of their meals. My partner had the salmon eggs benedict & loved his as well.

    For dinner, you can’t beat the Greek salad here and the saganaki (flaming cheese) dish that they light at the table. The humous is creamy in texture and not dried and pasty like other places. For entrees, we usually order from a few things we love, but I really like their pasta dishes.

    Don’t forget to leave room for Greek desert though because their bogatsa is amazing. It’s a cinnamon vanilla custard inside a phyllo dough pocket and a perfectly sized desert to end with.

    I have to give one last shoutout to the owners at Five Columns because they went above and beyond with a request of mine in the past where they specially-made my favorite Greek dish for me – pastitsio. It’s usually only offered once a year with a special and they made it on a special order for me.

    Five Columns has very friendly service, good food, relaxing atmosphere, and I highly recommend frequenting their establishment. If you go around Christmas time, they give these little cards inviting you back in January. You open the card in January at your table and there is a fun surprise inside. This year we won $50 off our meal- the grand prize! There were 4 of them out there & it was so cool to win. What a fun way to bring us back in again.

    I tried this place for the 1st time tonight. Not only was the service was top notch; but Oh My Gosh the F♡♡D!
    One word, HEAVEN.
    The ribs were cooked to perfection. They had a delcious amazing flavor. They were unique. The meat falls right off the bone.

    The pasta, was next level. The noodles were perfectly cooked the flavors married to eachother so well. My very picky 13 year old wanted 2nds. She redefines picky. She also ate veggies which is as rare as an eclipse.

    My filet mingon, was cooked Perfectly! It had to be at least 8oz, possibly 10oz. If I die the last thing I want to taste on my lips are those greek potatoes.

    Even the garlic bread was uncommonly tasty.

    If you have the time to sit down and enjoy good food? You have friends or family you want to take to have a great timeand great food? This Is The Spot!

    Lastly, the gorgeous tree in the center of the beautiful columns is alive and real. It is such a cool hidden treasure.

    Vegetarian options: Just ask, they are willing and happy to accomidate.

    Dietary restrictions: Im lactose intolerant. They were very safe and cautious. They went above and beyond to ensure I enjoyed every bite.

    Kid-friendliness: So kind and patient with my picky eater. Happy to let her taste things.

    Wheelchair accessibility: Roll in, and enjoy!

    Food is So yummy!!! Owners are in the kitchen and serving and hosting and are very friendly! Best Mediterranean- Greek food in town. Shrimp, fish , lamb, moussaka. Order a few side skewers of shrimp 🍤 to throw on your salad or fish. Try the Greek wine. Just an all around wonderful experience. Bellingham gem

  9. Adriana Kaylor

    Wonderful place! The food is amazing, I had the best eggs Benedict I’ve ever had in my life. The staff are so kind and attentive. The family is super sweet. Absolutely plan on coming back again and again.

    The servers are very nice, but the entrees (our party ordered 6 types) were not good. I was surprised that no one in our group liked their food. Certainly disappointing since the bill for just my husband and me was $100 (two entrees with salads, an appetizer and one dessert (no drinks). I’d definitely pick a different place to eat next time. It seems they have an older clientele that enjoys their food though.

    My favorite restaurant in Bellingham. It is so comforting, so delicious, THE NICEST PEOPLE, and the greek salad is unmatched. I think I’ll come here on my birthday – it’s that good.
