Our experience was fantastic. The service was above and beyond our expectations. Our waiter actually made a sugar-free fruit sauce for the hypoglycemic person at our table. He was so friendly and made our dinner flow with ease and comfort. Ambiance was lovely and romantic. We had the three-course meal menu and it was more than enough food (we brought half home). High recommendation from us.

I had the surf and turf. I was excited about the 28 day marinade. I ordered a t-bone. I don’t think it was... or it was taken off the bone and tenderized. It was really flat. I think this is a one off because when I’ve eaten here before this wasn’t the case. The portions are very large and they also have three nights a week where you get an appetizer, dinner and dessert for $25. That is a great value! Like I said a lot of food for that price.

Great service, atmosphere and food, but it comes at a price. Probably the best food I’ve had in Windsor, but that’s not saying much because there aren’t too many good restaurants in Windsor.

Returned for the second time. Sat in the back part of the restaurant which was quieter than the front.
Food and service were both fantastic. Wine recommendation was also great.
Looking forward to our next visit.

Noise from other guests made it very difficult to carry on conversations at our table.
Noise barriers of some nature would help, when your trying to maximize your floor space to the maximum

Both my wife and I enjoyed an excellent meal. Probably the best steak I have ever had. Prices were rather high overall and because of this I would not visit often. We we unhappy with our initial seating. We were there when they first opened an put us in a small nook next to a single and distracting diner. One he left, the ambiance was nice and the experience was excellent. The waiter made nice drink recommendations which was appreciated.

We have visited at least 4 times before so that speaks in itself that we chose to return. We love the price fix menu as each time we have enjoyed it thoroughly and it is very affordable and reasonable. We have introduced you to our friends also. We are from out of town ( Sarnia) . Erie St has so many wonderful options and we have tried them , however you and Bacchus are our ‘go to’ . We did appreciate the draught free room!! It was a little noisy so if I had my parents with me we would have to sign language but I have to do that when we have a party of 4 in a quiet room!!! :) Hope to see you again soon.

We went there on a Tuesday night. The place was half full (ideal for me) with just enough background noise. Wait staff were attentive but not overbearing. We both had the Price fix meals (rainbow trout and black and blue chicken), which were perfectly made and nice portions. The included deserts we delicious. An absolutely wonderful dinner.

Overall we had a great meal, great presentation, great ambience, however; I was floored looking at my bill at the end of the night and noticing a charge of $2 for about a tablespoon worth of steak sauce!!! Seriously, you bill yourself a steakhouse and charge for a condiment!? Our waiter was great but when I mentioned it, he had kind of an ‘oh well’ response. It may not seem like much after spending $160 + tip but I feel it was ridiculous and will keep me away.

Our food was excellent . We found it a very lengthy dinner - more so than we’ve had in the past . Don’t get me wrong - we like time in between courses , but this was a bit too much . Our calamari came out with our apps which was fine , but the wait to get even bread, entrees and especially dessert was long . Asked for our bill when ordering dessert so we didn’t need to wait for that . We had friends that came , ate & left before we even put in our dessert order. They arrived after us and had a different server . We were in the restaurant for exactly 2 hours which felt long for a Wednesday night.
Hoping next time , it won’t feel like such a lull between courses .

Had a nice dinner here with my family. The steaks were great and cooked just how we ordered (1 blue, 1 rare) and not over done. Teen daughter had lobster Mac and cheese which she did not enjoy. I tried it and found the lobster pieces were quite chewy, almost like calamari, which I thought was odd for lobster. It was my birthday, which staff knew because of reservation, and on checking over the receipt after leaving the restaurant I found I was not charged for my cocktail. Not sure if that was a mistake or a birthday present! I took a star off ambience only because it was very chilly. Otherwise it’s a very nice little place.

We’ve been to Take Five many times because the food is always delicious and the service outstanding. The only blemish for me last night, was the draft coming through due to the front door blowing open due to high winds. As a result, I was cold throughout my dinner. This issue aside, we had a wonderful experience.
