With a 5pm reservation we arrived at 4:55 in -13 c weather Doors locked and they would not let us in!!?? Waited till 5:07 in the freezing cold like cattle. I requested a nice table AWAY from the door , was seated near the door. When I requested the table next to the fireplace she told me it was taken. NOBODY SAT AT THAT TABLE the entire time we were there.(2hours) . Then with all the open tables around us she seats a table of 4 right next to us. Did not appreciate being treated like a second class citizen. Will go to the Keg from now on. Really got the feeling from the hostess, we were not welcome. It was my husband's 60th Burthday. Crappy attitude.

This is a great spot, especially for a special occasion. The two from my group that ordered steak indicated that it was the best steak they have had in Windsor! I am not a steak eater so I was happy to find a few seafood, chicken and even a vegetarian item on the menu. Great drink and wine menu and wonderful service!

As always we experienced first class service and cuisine at Take Five. Our friend’s filet was a bit over cooked but otherwise fine. My steak was good but surprisingly thin for a rib steak I thought. My partners chicken dish was excellent. You certainly can’t beat the service at this fine restaurant.

What a great find!
We went Sunday after a show, and although there were many menu choices, we ordered the “price fixe” dinner. Mussels in white wine sauce was delicious as was my steak and dessert. Loved the garnish of cartelized onions! As it was a Sunday, it was not too busy, so were able to have our romantic dinner at a cozy table by the fireplace. The classic jazz music, was perfect for the setting, and was audible, but we could still have a conversation. Perfect! Our young waiter was very attentive, and the chef came out to check that everything was alright...a lovely evening! We will be back!

Very chic retro feel. Intimate and warm with a thirties vibe. The white cheddar bacon jam filet is silky, sexy and never disappoints. I like how they try to focus on local product when possible and their beef aging standards are the best I've experienced. Take Five Bistro blows away all steak chains and corporate owned restaurants. Just saying... same price at a much better value and supporting the small business owner. Everybody wins.

Food was spectacular. My wife and I shared our meal and started with a traditional Shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were sweet, cooked perfectly and the house seafood sauce was perfectly heavy on the horseradish. We followed with a Lobster bisque that was good just not outstanding. Our entree was the Mixed Seafood Grill. It was exceptional. Nicely charred over wood with succulent lobster tails, shrimp in the shell, salmon filet and accompanied by a chared leek risotto. Spectacular. For dessert, we shared the house made Tiramisu. Light and creamy...a great finish.

A rib eye steak thaat is a 1/4" thick and cooked like leather when I ordered it med. is shameful.
Also, I had to ask for the meal to be discounted. I did not anything on my plate.
Overpriced meals... does not equal the old dusty back room we sat in. Very hot. We will not be back.

Thus was my second time having dinner at the bistro. The first time 2 years ago was excellent. However, this time I was disappointed. The steaks where different, lacked flavour and was not cooked the way we asked. If they asked $20 for a filet mignon I would let it he, but for $41 you have to get right. Even after I sent it back it returned undercooked. I don't know what to say because there are too many other options in Windsor for a better steak cheaper.
