The food was excellent, however we were unable to pay our bill because the internet was not operating, and they would not accept a personal cheque, so we were forced to walk down the street to withdraw cash from an ATM machine at a filthy corner store. Maybe Take Five should invest in a few manual credit card machines,

First time at Take Five and was taken with the decor. Our server was pleasant and attentive while the bus people were readily available. The food was top notch with fair portion sizes. Overall I was pleased with my experience at Take Five and would recommend all to give them a try.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Had a reservation for middle of the week, not knowing what to expect as far as a crowd. Pleasantly surprised at how quaint and comfortable the bistro was. Exceptional menu selections , shrimp appetizer and calamari were mouth watering. Main course, 9 oz filet with brussels was cooked to perfection. Cannot wait to go back!!

We had an amazing meal. We were so full that we took our tiramisu to go. The prix fixe menu was really good. The food was delicious and plentiful!

Food was excellent. Service was very professional.
Spacing in restaurant is cramped at peak times. Noise level was high again due to being at full capacity. Restaurant would be a quaint experience at off peak times. Something to consider when booking an evening out.

Disappointed. Made reservations for 4 people for a birthday dinner 5 days in advance though the app...all time slots available. Arrived to more-or-less an empty main dining only to be directed to a table near the door with seats that will leave us in the asiles. We wanted to avoid the draft of the door and asked for a different table, only to be told that was the table and that "we have a seating plan". Needless to say we left. While I can appreciate the planning required for a given night, there were plenty of tables of 4 open. I should mention we were there the weekend before, dinner for 2 - again booked a week in advance - and accepted a less than optimal seating arrangement (back room right in front of the fireplace). Even that night we were told that was the table. Should have learned my lesson. I typically do not write negative reviews and meals I've had here have been very good but this recent experience left me disappointed. Twice within a week is a bit much. My advice is understand that they "have a seating plan" and pass along any seating request. Unfortunately I've never had to do this anywhere else and normally accommodated when ask to sit at a different table. This includes the restaurant we ended up at (won't pass along name here). Very good meal and they accommodated us given a last minute phone call on a very busy night for them.

I ordered the Bouillabaisse with the Green Salad. Aperol Prosecco Spritz to start was refreshing and the orange citrus was perfect pairing with my salad and seafood dish. The salad was huge!! So beautifully plated I had to take a picture. The chefs fav dish is the Bouillabaisse and it shows the flavors danced around my tongue. It fun to eat. Nicely portioned with lobster, salmon, shrimp and plenty of mussels. Definitely got your moneys worth!!

Went a day early for Galentine's Day with an old friend who had never been to Take Five. We ordered off the pre fixe menu. She was very impressed with atmosphere, menu, quality of food, service as was I, although I'm alwaya impressed with this establishment. They have changed some things on menu since my last visit but it was still excellent. Thanks for another great meal!

The service was amazing and the food was good, but not great. Appetizers and drinks were great. The black & blue steak was overpowered with blue cheese and the filet didn't have much flavour. My salmon was good, but not great as I had expected from the reviews and friends comments. I'll definitely go back, but will be a little more selective.

This was a great find in Windsor! Wanted a local restaurant outside the casino. Great New York vibe. Great food. Fresh seafood and aged beef. Attentive staff. Definitely look to go back. Try the strawberry flambe’ for desert. Awesome.

Great date night spot. Food was great. Wife had salmon (with a dairy restriction), they accommodated accordingly and it was the best salmon dish she has every had at a restaurant.
Our starter (calamari) was great!
Manhattan was made perfectly.

My steak was cooked exactly as I asked. Tasted good, but I would have to say the keg has them beat for steaks.

Really like this place a lot. You can’t go wrong here.

Service was excellent. Restaurant was busy and very noisy. I asked to be seated at another empty table for 4, but told we could not so instead we sat in the middle of the room being bumped constantly by the staff and patrons. Drinks were very good. Chicken Oscar was over cooked -dry (I should know better than to order chicken), Crab Cakes were okay but the sofrito sauce was boring and too much batter on the calamari.

Unfortunately we had probably the worst table location in the place. The food was mediocre at best. In the past they have set a very high food quality standard which was not met on Saturday evening. The Chicken Oscar was tough and the steak wasn’t melt in your mouth tender. The meals were somewhat cold.
On a positive note, our server Adrian was fabulous.

Potatoes were burnt inside and half my new York peppercorn was full of grizzle and connecting tissue. Service was excellent and my steak was cooked perfectly! The other meal was perfect! We all have bad days!

The mood, atmosphere, ambiance.... whatever your word is... was wonderful. Whether it is date night or a cozy, fabulous dinner with family, Take 5 is amazing. From the rich wall colour to the painted tin ceiling, the decor was spot on. The food was beautiful and delicious! The wine was perfect. The waiter was helpful but not pushy. Everything was just perfect.
