The Fifth

Who is the chef nowadays?
Manager is former Bistro 990? sommelier?
Anyway, should we go there for a very special occasion? Our friends suggested as their condo is just nearby it. What should we order? What should we avoid?
Please let us know. Thanks!

  1. Last time I was there, a few of us tried each other's meals. The halibut and the steak frites were outstanding.

    1. I actually ate there on friday and had a wonderful meal. It was my sister's bachelorette and we all had a really good time. The food was wonderful and the service was friendly yet professional. The terrace is gorgeous.

        which dishes did you, guys, favour?
        what's the price range?

          Fifth is not cheap - we ate a bunch of little things (more sides and apps)

          I had the small filet (rare) very nice with a bernaise. The lobster poutine was very decadent. The mushroom risotto was really popular amongst the group, along with the spring salad and the caprese salad. We had a nice affordable bottle of Pino Grigio $45 (okay we had more than one)

          They also are doing a prix fix; either a app, main and dessert or just the app and main. Looked good.

            I have also enjoyed excellent meals there. I ordered the American Wagyu and my companion had 3 of the biggest cocktail shrimp I have ever along with a classic chopped salad and Filet.

              Can one reserve seating on the terrace or do you have to ask for it when you arrive ?

                You can reserve and/or ask for it!
