We made reservations for the Terrace for our anniversary. We were not disappointed. We had a lovely little private table separate (slightly) from other diners. We enjoyed the east coast oysters for an appetizer. They were small and very tasty. The mignonette was great but not enough for a dozen oysters. We asked for more and it came very quickly. We were both in the mood for steak. My husband ordered the strip loin and I ordered the tenderloin. Both were ordered medium rare and they were perfect. We had both the frites and the Brussels sprouts as sides and they were very tasty.
Our server was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly.
Overall, I would highly recommend for a special occasion.

I took my son for a belated birthday celebration to the Roof Top Restaurant and I can only say that I absolutely fell in love. The staff were so attentive from the moment you entered and were led to the elevator (which I adored as it retained it's old world style), throughout dinner and then to the ending with an escort out. Dinner itself was relaxed, each course well spaced and well prepared. I definitely intend to return as does my son who agreed that the Fifth was definitely worth many returns.

We had dinner at the Fifth and the appetizers, regular menu items and desserts were good, but I was disappointed by the main that was served for summerlicious. My steak was braised instead of grilled and the vegetables with it seemed stewed. Very bland and not up to the Fifth's standards.

Booked weeks in advance for terrace, ended up by the curtain hiding the kitchen. Just got more and more noisey with the pass shouting orders, Many empty tables we could have been moved to but they didn’t, waitress couldn’t even hear our orders. Not good customer service

The fifth terrace & grill really puts all other restaurants to shame.
I have never been to an establishment with SUCH topnotch service. There is an individual assigned to every area of the venue to guide you. The food, even on a summerlicious menu, was incredible. The wine pairings were perfect. The venue and decorum - was so intimate and romantic.
Probably one of the best establishments in Toronto.
It almost made me regret booking our wedding in Niagara-on-the-lake. It was beautiful enough to have a wedding there.

My husbands dish was great!
He ordered the steak and a few sides.
I ordered the lobster risotto. I Was a bit disappointed it was grainy on the throat and just need a little something to give it moistness, flavour and texture.
Not too many options on the menu. Which is both good and not so good sometimes. If it's hard to choose something it's great. If you have allergies, not so great!
The waiter was very nice and as was all the staff. Thank you!
I was really hoping to give a 5, but I'm giving a 4 based on my husbands meal only.
The terrace is lovely as well.
Quaint and quiet.

Amazing! We had Rob as our waiter and he was magnificent. Food was also fantastic, and if I lived in Toronto, I'd make it a habit to come here and eat. Wine, food, and ambience left nothing to be desired.

This was our first time to the Fifth Grill and will definitely go back. The service provided by the entire staff but particularly our waiter Rob, was fantastic. This was a special occasion and they took care to make it a memorable one. The food was amazing, the steak tartare one of the best we've ever had and Kammy makes a great cocktail too!
Worth the drive from Alliston! We will go back with friends!
