The food was excellent. Service was phenomenal. Highly recommend you try the calamari, salmon nachos and the rib eye. Exactly what we had to eat and it was awesome!

Great food and great portions, had the Spanish Red, it was a good choice. Got the window seat on a sunlight evening, and it was a lovely dinning experience. If you haven't checked out Take 5 you should, you can't leave disappointed.

The chef needs to slow down with the salt shaker. No rolls or bread basket provided which i feel is not right when paying $40 to $60 for a meal.

Food fantastic as always, steak cooked to perfection. Creme Brûlée was to die for. Service was impeccable, believe we had Adrian? Knowledgeable on the entire menu, his wines, as well as just his common conversation, definitely will be back here, a Windsor treasure forsure.

I've been here many times and tonight was the first time I was disappointed. The good: staff was exceptionally friendly as always. They take Covid precautions seriously. Salmon Nachos fantastic!

Not so good .. service was less than stellar. Not as attentive to the back room tables. Continually had to ask for refills.. Chicken Oscar was decent.. rice pilaf was boring at best.. carrots, rice, not well seasoned. Tiny fleck of crab shell in my food (very easily missed until you bite it)..Needed a steak knife to cut the veg... Barely blanched..
Had to ask for pepper.... Just a series of misses for this meal.

I will still frequent this establishment.. every one is entitled to an off day.

It was our first time at your restaurant and I must say we were very impressed.
To start off the service was superb and the food was amazing. The fact that everything is locally sourced ( of which the server informed us at the start) was a great thing to hear.
The atmosphere was great with the fireplace and just the overall ambience was very warm and inviting. Definitely our new favorite place to dine in.

Our meal was excellent as was the service .
The only downside of the evening was when we were leaving the foyer was overcrowded and nobody was wearing a mask, which I found very disturbing considering the signs on your door and the times we are living in. Somebody needs to take charge and tell customers they must keep masks on until seated at their designated table.

The Prix Fixe menu is a great deal, but unfortunately, the choices are not as good they used to be. It is understandable, given the current situation, but the choices are quite limited. And if you are a wine lover, I find myself not impressed with the choices, unless you are prepared to pay a highly overinflated price for a decent wine. And the wines by the glass are not at all appealing. But the food is always excellent, no matter what it is, and the service is impeccable. For those reasons, you should definitely go there.

Ambiance was very romantic, although it did make reading the manu a little difficult. Service was excellent. We were greeted cheerfully upon arrival, seated quickly and our server did a great job of ensuring we had everything we needed without being intrusive. Food was delicious and plentiful. It's a bit pricy but the quality is excellent and it was a great way to celebrate our anniversary.
