Great food. Romantic atmosphere. Would definetly recommend for a special occasion.
Fantastic as always
Never disappointed. Best food and restaurant in Windsor
Nicely seasoned steak cooked right. Excellent cocktails. Great service.
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 believe this is the best restaurant in Windsor. What a find! The food is amazing. Very tasty. I would recommend to anyone visiting or who lives locally.
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.
Went with my girlfriend for our 5th anniversary and was served by Jared. I had a special request, which they obliged, and the service was outstanding. Jared was knowledgeable and professional. Such a simple night made me and my girlfriend very happy. Well done Take Five!
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.
My wife and I celebrate all of our special occasions here, anniversaries, birthdays, promotions, etc. The good is always on point! They use only the best ingredients as you can tell by the quality of the meal. The service is also always amazing and the atmosphere is cozy and high end!
Service was cool, not over the top with his fake nicety stuff. Food was excellent, really enjoyed the fried mashed potatoes. Little quiet in there though.
The food wasnt great and way over priced.
Went for my boyfriends birthday, I’ve never been there but he has (only for lunch). The waiter was perfect. The restaurant was quiet but not too quiet. The food was outstanding! Definitely going back for my birthday!
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.
Fantastic dinner celebrated my fathers birthday. Every dish was great. Service was great. Highly 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.
Great food, great vibe. We had gone 3 years prior and were not impressed. They definitely changed things around and got better. The Fixed price weekday menu is a lot of food for a great value
Very good food and service was great. Noise level was a bit high but was reduced when a couple of large tables left.
The food was great. We chose from the price fixed menu. Great deal for app entree and dessert.
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
It was a special dinner for my husband’s 70th birthday.He had never been before and was totally impressed with the menu,presentation and the friendly,helpful service! Will definitely return!
Excellent food and service!
I personally would ask for a table in the back room as my husband & I could not even talk to each other as we couldn’t hear each other. The noise level was not a good experience. I ordered the tortellini & they ran out of tortellini & offered me linguini or fettuccini. Tasted good but just wasn’t the same. Other than than these 2 issues - great service & glad we went.
Everyone else was having a great time!
Delicious. Food came out hot and was cooked properly.
We'll be back
Love 💘 this place.
I plan on returning next Thursday.
Everything was outstanding. My son said it was the best steak he has ever had. We will definitely be back again. Everything was awesome!
We cancelled our reservation at a higher-end casino steakhouse, by strong suggestion of a fellow traveller I met in our hotel bar, and it was SUCH the right decsion. The service was impeccable, and food and drinks were PERFECT. If you're in Windsor and looking for a romantic-ish atmosphere, great service and an incredible menu (PERFECT STEAK!) you have to go here!
Fantastic food. We've never been disappointed. Adrian was our server and he's the best!
Lovely birthday dinner as always. We both think you have the best steaks in Windsor and always look forward to returning soon.
Food was delicious and the waiter very attentive. Great night celebrating our 36 wedding anniversary. Bringing friends back soon. Love the prefix menu it’s great food and filling
Yes but I will definitely mention the cost involved.
Paid over $200 (included $55 for a bottle of wine) for our meal which we don't mind if the food is stellar. Crab cakes not good, clearly frozen and lots of filler, strip loin looked beaten up and plopped on plate (way too much blue cheese); veal same thing, looked haggard and not good presentation on plate. Both were so-so only. Even veggies looked like they came from a frozen veggie bag. There was so much hype around this restaurant, but it was a very sub par meal to us. Server was friendly and professional, but did mess up the order (no added mushrooms as ordered, rec'd rice rather than mashed potatoes...). We just didn't bother at that point. He also noted prior to us ordering how the food was local, intimating it was fresh, but when we asked about certain items we were told they were frozen (i.e. duck breast). Definitely way over priced for the meal we received. Also, though we recognize this is not of your doing, but there was a screaming child seated near us which, when you are out in the evening at what is supposed to be an upscale venue for a romantic dinner, that was most definitely off-setting. Sorry to be so blunt, but want to be truthful. Will not return or recommend.
Great food and service. Our server Adrian is one of the best!
The perfect place to take friends and family. Super good service and great food
Everything is always perfect. We've never been disappointed
Delicious, excellent value. Definitely recommend, and return.
i enjoyed the atmosphere , the choice of foods and quality , the staff, ambiance and reputation. Will definitly come back and recommended this restaurant.
Met some work friends for a nice catch up supper and the food and service were excellent t! The place filled up very quickly and before too long had a bit of trouble hearing over the commotion but that just shows how good this place is. The price-fixe menu is a bargain and the selection is awesome!!! Our server -Adrian- was perfect in every way. Excellent choice for a night out without breaking the bank.
