We love the Clarkston location. It's much nicer than the Bloomfield Hills location on Telegraph. Amazing difference in the environment. It's just more comfortable.

Quality meal at a quality restaurant. Hostess was very accommodating when we arrived early for our reservation. Swordfish was very good. Server was very busy so not perfectly attentive. Overall, excellent experience

Went on Wednesday and got a half priced bottle of wine, chicken Marsala and stir fry. Everything was outstanding, clean and professional. Will be returning to have the steak dinners very soon!

Started my birthday meal out by waiting 10 minutes for our server to greet us. Dinner was good and service was good up to the end of the meal. The server didn’t offer dessert at all and dropped the bill but never came back to pick it up. Thankfully we had cash so we could leave after waiting 20 minutes for him to come back. Probably won’t ever return after this as our first visit encounter. So disappointed and would definitely speak with a manager next time about the issues before leaving

Everything was very good. I would have given them a 5 star rating if it hadn’t been for:
- my wife’s steak was rare when we ordered medium
- my wife’s steak was rare a 2nd time after a very long delay. Everyone else was done eating my this time and it spoiled a great night. Well, not completely but it certainly did t help my rating. It was difficult to get our server back to address the issue.

The food was good, and service was good although the server was wrong about the vegetable of the day. It turned out to be corn!?!? Who serves corn for a vegetable? My husband really enjoyed the coconut rice!

We had to wait for about 30 minutes even though we had reservation.
The reception area was crowded and very few people if any were wearing masks
Once seated though, service was excellent and the food was reliably good
The noise level was moderate
The ambiance was typical of a mid level nice restaurant

Our meal was outstanding; we'll come again. Acoustics are not good -- you have to speak so loud to be heard by someone sitting across from you, be aware those at tables near you will hear you.

Really enjoyed our visit to 5th Tavern this past Saturday.
Our servers were engaging, knowledgable, and friendly. The room was a bit noisier than we anticipated but I think it simply indicated a positive energy. The restaurant is popular!
Nice selection of appetizers. The calamari was a bit over done. Swordfish entree with the coconut jasmine rice was wonderful. We ordered a bottle of the house label Merlot and I must say it was very nice. Best bargain on their wine list.
They have a nice sized bar/lounge area with entertainment on this particular Saturday evening.

It’s ok. Not great, not bad. Services don t wear masks. And the dont space out people while seating us. I realize a lot of people are vaccinated but it’s still a risk I do t want to take. I doubt we will be back given their disregard for safety on that issue when considering that the food is only so-so. The server was nice. That’s the best thing I can sY about eating here.

Our server Christine was very friendly and professional. I ordered off of the Rok portion of the menu and had a very tasty Filet Mignon. My husband had fish and enjoyed his meal too.

We both ordered the prime rib special. Food came very quickly. Potatoes for both were cold. Our server brought new hot ones within a couple of minutes. Prime rib was very tasty. Desert tray was fabulous; wine selection very decent.

Yes, will be going back again given their diverse menu.

You need better ventilation. Was very smokey (I’m assuming from the “rok’s” nearby) and hot. Food was good but for dessert, the waitress should inform people of how large the desserts are, that they’re easily a 2 person (and more) dessert. Very disappointed in that.

Consistently great food. Super loud and super busy. Our server did a great job considering how busy it was Friday evening. But we have come to expect that this is a busy place due to the great food and service.

Food, service, wait time with reservation were all great! Our orders came to our table very quickly and were presented beautifully. It was a busy Friday night and was extremely loud some acoustic panels in the ceiling would help to dampen the noise level. We were seated at a table near the restroom and found it strange that people were standing near us seemingly waiting for a table or the party room. It felt as if they were hovering over us and conversing loudly. So, that part was not enjoyable. Eventually they were seated and we could enjoy our meals. Our server, Kristen, was fantastic.
