Diner Reviews
  • "Not happy with the how greeter leading us to a less favourable table when all the tables with nice views were available. Appetizer salad was salty, pork belly was extremely salty and rough like boiled meat. Dessert was unskillful and bad presentation. Will not celebrate birthday here again. The pros are that our server was friendly Nd professional and the ambience is quite nice."

  • "Great food and service given in an unexpected way. This roof top terrace is very relaxing and the experience is one that would demand a return visit when back in Toronto."

  • "Billed as premium restaurant for Summerlicious, but food and service does not deliver. Basic execution concerns. During our dining experience we saw a number of dishes sent back. Although the space is beautiful, the overall experience is not worth it and I would not recommend this location to others. There are a number of other restaurants in the city which offer better dining experiences at the same price point Summerlicious or not."

  • "What a find from the speakeasy ambiance when you arrive, the freight elevator service and the lovely spot in the middle of downtown. We enjoyed a lovely dinner on a lovely evening. The ambiance of this restaurant is amazing - quaint setting meets elegant service. We have gluten and dairy allergies and they accommodated us easily. The menu was very interesting with lots of great choices. The only complaint was that the tuna came medium when it was supposed to be served rare. The Lamb dish was excellent as were the desserts."

  • "Food was delicious. Service was to be desired. Our waiter forgot to give us bread and on several occasions we had to prompt our waiter to move the meal along. The wait staff also did a terrible job with filling our water glasses. Would've been a 5 star meal if it weren't for the awful service."

  • "This was the best meal we've had in any restaurant in many years. Steak was outstanding, extremely tender, fllavorful on perfectly cooked. Mixed grill was also out of this world. Desserts, lemon mousse and orange cake, were also fantastic. We've been to many steakhouses in many cities - this was by far the best. Service was also very good -attentive but not too much! Wish we were in Toronto more often - we'd eat here every time!"

  • "I'm not the kind of person that generally leaves reviews, but I felt it was neccessary to write one for The Fifth. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and we were completely floored!! We have never been to restaurant quite like this one. The ambiance was breathtaking. In my opinion, it was the perfect combination of modern and rustic. You felt like you were dining at your friends house and being treated like royalty. The decor, service and food was nothing short of outstanding. I highly reccommend The Fifth to couples and for large groups such as a birthday party. Hats off the the management and wait staff for giving us such an unforgettable experience."

  • "Took our friends from BC here tonight and they like us were so impressed. From the elevator ride which is like being back in time at a speakeasy to the best desserts I've had in as long as I can remember. Desserts are all made in-house and are always a win. Not only was dessert perfect but so was my petite filet and the delicious sides of brussel sprouts (my absolute favourite) and the panko crusted onion rings are out of this world. As you can tell I am a huge fan of the fifth. The staff are always so friendly and the food is top notch. Looking for a great date night book the fifth and ask for the terrace. You will not be disappointed"

  • "Celebrated wedding anniversary on the roof top terrace. Very nice spot - laid back atmosphere and romantic and comfortable setting. Flat iron steak was slightly overdone for my taste (medium rare) but still very enjoyable and tasty. Foie grad appetizer was a good sized portion and also very well done. Overall an enjoyable evening."

  • "Ate here for the first time on Saturday evening, and was a surprise for a friends birthday. The restaurant is amazing, the elevator ride was something in itself, and the service and food were perfect. Despite waiting for a little for the lamb, which is great to ensure its cooked the way you want, enjoyed the wine and cocktail list and amuse bouche before. As it was a birthday celebration, the restaurant even went out of their way to get cake and candles and make it a truly special occasion. Our waiter is the epitomy of what customer service is all about and we will definitely be returning and telling all our friends/family."

  • "We were taking friends (meat eaters) out for dinner and hadn't been to the Fifth in ages, so we were a bit nervous but the menu was a good variety and looked interesting. We were not disappointed. Great service, delicious food. Steak, lamb, pork and mixed grill, all ,met with everyone's approval. Appies were fabulous and I could have made a meal on the sides alone. Shared chocolate dessert was perfect ending and did I mention the cappuccino was exceptional Not a complaint from here. "

  • "The food was outstanding and the ambience is one of the best in the city. Feels like a hidden gem. Was there on a Friday and it was not crowded. Would definitely recommend this place to others especially for a romantic occasion. "

  • "We really enjoyed The Fifth Grill and Terrace largely because of the rather novel experience of it all. Have never been to anything quite like it in Toronto. The food was excellent - nice presentation, quite refined, and decent portions. The elevator ride up was nothing short of memorable, with entertainment by a card magician no less! The service was very good and we loved the rustic cottage look. Too bad the weather was so cool and required the plastic awnings to be lowered. Would definitely go back."

  • "Food was great, baked Alaska for dessert was amazing but we were disappointed to be on patio. First visit was Inside way more cozy and better ambience for dinner and more our style. Elevator ride is always fun. "

  • "Its been 3 months, we had such an amazing time that the place comes up in our conversation every now and then. Getting there:It was weird at first, because we couldn't figure out how to get in. We had to ask someone for help. We were escorted up to the dining floor by a nice guy doing magic tricks in the elevator. Ambiance: Its very romantic chic. For lovers for sure. Food: We both had steaks. My stake was just ok (medium rare), had better. However, what we didn't expect the Wild Mushroom Rissotto. It was amazing! I would go back just for that. Service: Acceptable, given the type of place we were in. The waiter did forget to bring us our bread, and he didn't attend to as as often as he did to the others. Overall it was still a good night."

  • "Everything from the elevator ride up with personal attendant to the coat check was done with style. The service was great with informed friendly servers. The food was delicious and fresh and we also were given a few extras. It was a lovely date spot."

  • "Reservations booked a month in advance to secure good table in main restaurant and ended up on patio near the hall door that was constantly left open with a cold draft coming in all night. There was a big party in the main dining room so they sat us on the outdoor canvas walled patio. Wait staff were very polite but service was VERY slow and when our dinner finally arrived, it was not hot and the seafood was undercooked so we returned. We weren't charged for seafood and we were given a desert for the table which was nice, but when you don't get a chance to go out often, it didn't make up for the overall experience. Clearly the kitchen was overwhelmed with the large party AND trying to service regular diners. Very disappointing date night."

  • "The food was fantastic however our waiter seemed like he could care less of our presence. His tip definitely reflected that. I would definitely return due to the food being spectacular but if I received the same waiter I would ensure to have my table changed immediately."

  • "I was there for celebrating my birthday, from the moment I got there, everyone was very attentive by wishing me happy birthday, from the hostess to the elevator attendant then the coat check lady, everyone sure made me feel special, the evening went well with all the good food we had and nice amosphere there, until the moment they brought the dessert that we ordered out, I was disappointed to see that there's nothing special with the deco of my dessert, I was expecting to see "happy birthday" greeting at least on the plate, but not at all! It would really make difference for my impression of the service if our server could pay more attention in detail."

  • "I had only been to the 5th years ago dancing but I didn't know about the restaurant component. The whole arrival experience, courteous staff, décor, music and setting, including the great food and drinks made it a wonderful experience. I went with 3 girlfriends but I think its warm, elegant experience would be great for a romantic evening on the town."

  • "My husband and I are regulars of The Fifth for a multitude of reasons but primarily of the great food, amazing service and ambiance. Thursday night they once again had a guest chef, Camille Moore, who prepared a very interesting menu. Camille's special menu was delicious and another reason for us to love The Fifth even more than we do already. Looking forward to our next visit already!"

  • "As you can see from my scoring I rate the restaurant highly in terms of food, service, ambiance. Only - is that the waiter on several occasions tried to remove unfinished plates on the table...otherwise service and experience is premium."

  • "This was my third visit to The Fifth and this time it was with a large group celebrating a special occasion. The food - truth be told I always get the filet with some sides - was consistent and excellent, but it was the candlelight ambiance on the heated terrace that will keep me coming back to The Fifth. The bonus with The Fifth is that you can always do some spontaneous dancing at the club downstairs without having to wait in line; it becomes a dinner + dancing night out very easily. All in all though, it was the ambiance and atmosphere that stole the show for me."

The service was impeccable as well as the food! Must have the fifth sundae and the truffle mash potatoes no matter what! There was a gentlemen who escorted us from the first floor to the top floor named Sasha who was absolutely hilarious and went out of his way to make us feel welcomed and satisfied."

  • "The Fifth Grill has really done an incredible job with their decor and overall visual experience. The restaurant is located on the upper level of the building and you take an old heritage elevator up to the dining room. There is so much character here; the dining room is intimate and elegant. They also offer a large patio that is open year round (covered and heated for the winter months). The food was very good. My only complaint with this restaurant is that the food took a long time to arrive, about an hour and twenty five minutes. However, there was a large group that arrived ahead of us so that may have been what caused the delay."
