We have been several times. The food is always good. Unfortunately tonight 3 of 4 meals were wrong. A glitch somewhere! Food was still good.

This quaint restaurant is a pearl amidst better known and bigger ones on Erie street. Their prix fixe menu offers a truly outstanding value for the price. We had a very fine dining experience like we rarely had in better known places. If you appreciate fine dining at a reasonable price, go there! We certainly will, again, until we exhaust this prix fixe list! And it's long!

Service was excellent as usual. We had the special menu and Sue had the trout and I had the beef tips. Both meals were done to perfection. This is truly a dining boutique! We have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. Very unique for the area. We celebrated our 49th Anniversary.

Nice place but my steak was undercooked. I order medium well and it was very red inside. The waiter agreed that it was undercooked and was willing to take it back and have it cooked more but then my husband would have been done his meal and I would be just getting mine.

First visit for me...options were all tempting, food really exquisite, beautifully plated and with it being a Thursday evening, the $29. value for 3 courses, terrific! Flambé strawberries on ice cream was perfect ending to my beef tips/mash potato entree. Will definitely return....ThankYou for the wonderful service as well. Loved it!!

We were there at 6:30 on a Saturday night. It was SOOOOOO loud we couldn’t hear each other speak. Our meal took 2 hours to arrive. The salad was very good. The steak NY strip was good, but grizzley and hard to cut.
The restrooms were not bad for a busy place.
The waiter was friendly and came by often to apologize for the late meals.
Our water glasses were usually empty.
I wish I could report better.

My husband took me out for my birthday. Neither of us had dined here before. I loved the music, decor and of course the food and wine. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We both had filet steaks which were cooked perfectly. Our appetizer was the baked shrimp and it was soo good too. Our server was excellent and all of our food came out at a perfect pace. The tiramisu for dessert was divine. I cannot wait to go back and sample more items on the menu.

We loved it and that’s saying something considering we usually go to The Capital Grille and Morton’s Steakhouse. The salmon, steak, lobster, crab cakes, and side dishes were out of this world delicious and beautifully presented. The only exception was the caprese salad because the tomatoes weren’t ripe enough and therefore had no flavour. We enjoyed the ambiance and warmth of this bistro and will definitely be back!

Having just moved to Windsor from Vancouver, I was looking for a little more "west coast feel" and great service. My aunt and I visited Take 5, had a great great time! I have been back a few times and enjoyed the ambiance and service.

It was my hubby's birthday, so we invited his sister and brother-in-law to join us for dinner. Not realizing there was a back room at Take 5 - I was floored when we had been seated in the back room - looking into the kitchen. It was not the atmosphere or ambiance I was hoping for.

Had the restaurant been open when I was making my reservations, I would have been sure to know where we would be seated. It was a big disappointment. Wait staff coming in and out, I was constantly distracted by the little "knock-knock" on the kitchen door. I suggested Take 5 because of the ambiance, wine, food and service. A piece to the puzzle was missing.

I had indicated on our reservation that it was a special occasion. Our server had no idea, not his fault. Thank goodness as always the food was great, the service too. It was just not quite what I had hoped for after having gone on and on about my past dining experiences at Take 5.

Of course we will return, but I will definitely ask the question as to where we would be seating. The back room unfortunately - feels like "a back room overflow".

Had I known at the time of booking that we would be relegated to the back room - we would have gone some where else.

Thank you!

Having not been in Windsor for over 25 years my friend and I searched online for a great steakhouse. This restaurant came up. The steak was "okay" I have certainly had better and the service was non existent.
I could certainly not recommend this restaurant.

I had visitors from out of town and we wanted a nice meal out. We all very much enjoyed the meal and the service - it was agreed that both were excellent. The biggest fail was the noise level. The acoustics were absolutely horrendous- we couldn’t carry on a conversation without shouting, once the place got busy. If you want folks to stay and enjoy spending more money on drinks, you need to do something about the noise. We couldn’t get out of there fast enough.
