The food was amazing. The waiter was on point 100%...
I’m pretty sure it was the best dining experience I’ve ever had actually. We will be back!

We went to Take 5 this past Saturday to celebrate Valentine's Day, normally my experiences at this restaurant are excellent, however, this time it fell short of my expectations.

The Atmosphere -- There were so many tables packed against the wall that we were barely able to walk between them - and definitely unable to walk without disturbing the table next to you. It felt as though we were on a triple date, with us and the two couples at the tables on either side of us. It made it uncomfortable for conversations, and far less romantic than I had hoped when booking. I understand that Valentine's is a busy weekend, but the amount of tables they packed in showed that greed obviously played a factor in the setup.

The food -- Mine was excellent (Beef Tenderloin Neptune) though cooked slightly less than I normally enjoy. My partner however, ordered the Peppercorn New York Strip -- it was marbled throughout as well as a huge chunk along the side, with fat, which made it difficult for him to chew, let alone enjoy. When the lady (manager I assume) came to take away the plates she never even asked how everything was and were we satisfied, just took the plates, said "all set here i see" and walked away -- which is absurd when he left over half the steak on the plate.

I must say, it was my boyfriends first time here and he now has no desire to go back, and quite frankly neither do I.

Been to Take 5 a few times now and I have always had a great experience- from the food to the service to the atmosphere. Definitely recommend for a date night or small party. Their filet mignon and croquet is my favourite

Always get a great meal when we are there! It was a bit too loud though, I had to ask to be moved next to a wall so that I could hear. Our server didn’t let us know the specials of the day though :(

My girlfriend and I love Take 5 the food always tastes good. Even the sun dried tomato flavoured butter for the bread is amazing. We always hope we get the sever named Adrian. He’s really good at making sure we have everything we want and at the same time giving us our privacy to have a romantic dinner. We use to go try different restaurants all the time. Now we go back to to Take 5 cause we know we’ll enjoy our evening.

Great food! A little on the pricey side but the food is top notch! The restaurant could use some booths...the fact that it’s an open room with just tables throughout adds to the noise level. Other than that, it’s a great restaurant. It is my second time going and I wouldn’t hesitate to go again.

My second time at Take Five, everything, once again, was perfect. Food, service, and surroundings. We brought another couple who had not been there, their first time, and they enjoyed it also. They enjoyed their food, service and surroundings as well. Thank you. Will return again and recommend, which I already do.

The noise level was extremely high, hardly the romantic dining experience that the local ratings give this restaurant. I can only suspect the ratings have been padded. The food was good but does not warrant the prices. Service started off ok but trailed off to nil by the end of the evening; it took almost an hour to get our main course.

The dinner was for a birthday celebration. No mention of the occasion by the waiter. The meal took 3 hours to receive all 3 courses with a party of 6 at our table. There was no lactose free options given on the menu. I was told the only option was to order extra vegetables with my main course.
Food was good but lacked options for those with food allegories and extremely long waits between courses.

I love your restaurant. I was recently there with someone who has great difficulty with stairs. I know there are just 2 steps outside but I wonder if you might consider a railing of some sort to hang onto. It would make s great deal of difference to some of your customers.
