Everything was excellent except that the noise level was too much at a certain time during our dining experience. We got over it and enjoyed our dinner and anniversary.

The service was excellent, as everyone’s needs and requests were promptly addressed in a highly professional manner.
We invited first-time guests, as we are returning customers. All were very satisfied with the quality and presentation of their chosen meals. The only disappointment was the texture of the beef tips (two/both orders)...as gristle was evident within the meat. Preparation and taste were spot-on.

Service was superb! Wait staff very attentive but not obtrusive. We all had the crusted salmon and it was just wonderful. The only very slight complaint was the music, although quite nice, was a tad loud. Even with that said, I would give this restaurant my highest rating. We will definitely be attending again.

The soups and appetizers ere wonderful. Lobster bisque was amazing and the onion soup was also quite good. I thoroughly enjoyed the crab cakes as well. My issue was with the entrees. We both ordered scalloped potatoes as a starch with our steak and it seems as though someone didn’t realize that someone else had already added salt. I don’t use salt at all but my girlfriend does and she even said they were way too salty. The server gave some excuse about how they were made by more than one person or something like that . He did offer to swap them out for another side if we wished. However the salt issue continued for me because the pepper corn seared New York strip was also very salty. Odd for a pepper encrusted steak. The owner was however very nice to comp us our desserts. There are a few other items on the menu that I would love to try and will definitely go back again.

Not a great experience at Take 5. We’ve been here many times. Sometimes it’s incredible......great food and professional service. But every other time we go we seem to hit snags with both food preparation and service response and this is what occurred Friday night. We both ordered filets....myself the nine ounce and my wife the six. Both to be prepared medium. Keep in mind that the restaurant makes a point of clearly defining in the menu what each cooking preference means. Both steaks were medium rare to rare. My wife elected to eat hers as it was but a nine ounce steak that’s very undercooked is very difficult to eat, so I complained. Our waiter told me to put my steak on my bread plate, then he took it away. No apology by the way. Although my wife tried very hard to eat very slowly she was done well before my steak came back. Sadly they threw the same steak back on the grill......it was now charred on the edges and tasted terrible. Which I told the waiter who simply walked away ! When the bill was handed to me the waiter said my meal was credited as it should have been. But really even with the credit it was a $150 meal and not an enjoyable experience whatsoever. I don’t think we’ll be returning.

I am from Montreal where food is great and I missed this when I moved here. But Take Five is like one of those great restaurant in Montreal. It is now my favorite place to dine out. Great service and great food.

All four in our party had an excellent meal. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The service was great even though the restaurant was busy. Will continue to patronize Take Five and would definitely recommend to our friends. Very noisy, though.

Delicious food and great service. I have to say it was really dark in there! I like a romantic ambiance, but I also like to be able to read the menu without pulling out my phone. When pretty much every table did the same, I knew it wasn't just me. Next time maybe I'll bring my little flashlight!

It was a good thing we made reservations because on a Saturday night it filled up fast. Steaks were on point and cooked to perfection. Service was great; paid enough attention that the water glasses never got low but gave us space to chat with our friends and enjoy our meal.

3rd time at this restaurant and it just keeps getting better and better. Food is absolutely fabulous. My New York Strip makes The Keg look like McDonalds. Service and Wait Staff is very knowledgeable and very professional.
Ambiance is authentic and stately.
The food is pricey for Windsor, but given the “local” only supply chain is is actually quite inexpensive. I have only had service and quality like this in Convention Towns like Dallas, Vegas,or New York.
Great experience and definitely recommend.

Honoring our request the hostess politely moved us to a quieter table. As the room filled up it was noisy again by the time we left.
The waiter also was excellent-attentive, very helpful, knowledgeable.
Excellent value.

We arrived at 7 but by the time our entree arrived, it was 8:45. Way too long.Waiter apologized and told us it was due to a big party. Not my fault. French onion soup was delicious. Ordered a New York strip for my entree but found it very thin , although it was tasty. Too expensive for what I got
