“My husband and I had a special evening at The Fifth. An early Christmas treat.”
– December 12, 2016 –
“My cousin and her husband flew in from Montreal to celebrate her birthday and I wanted them to have an amazing meal as they are most definitely foodies so The Fifth was an easy decision.
Chef JP Challet and the team at The Fifth didn’t disappoint on any level. We shared mussels to start followed by the lobster bisque which makes my mouth drool as I type. Most of us had a filet as our main but my husband had the smoked salmon which he said was the best salmon he ever had and our friend had the lamb chops which she loved. Such nice night and we cannot wait to return again!”

“Executive Chef JP Challet can do no wrong. His lobster bisque and lobster risotto are culinary materpieces. His duck magret and his beef hanger steak, do justice to the whims and desires to any carnivore. On his menu, you will also find seafood and homemade pasta. Where JP particularly excels, is by giving you a choice of whether or not you want a large portion or a small portion, of everything on the menu. He also offers selected wines in either three or six ounce glasses, to pair with your meal. Service is appropriately understated and professional.”

“Decided to go to The Fifth before TIFF. Right from when we were treated by security in the alley we knew it was going to be a special night. Our server was great, food was awesome and the ambiance so amazing. Sitting on the rooftop Terrace, we nearly forgot we were in one of the busiest parts of the city. A great place for a romantic, special occasion.”

“Sat on The Terrace for dinner on a warm Friday between screenings during TIFF – Toronto International Film Festival. Lovely ambiance on the rooftop, nicely decorated, terrific food, excellent service. Fun getting up there through the “back door” on an old elevator (the regular access was closed off due to the Festival). Did 5 sharing courses and that was plenty for two people. Recommended.”

The event was absolutely spectacular. With regards to feedback, the guests loved it and many of them requested more information for the venue for their upcoming events.

I just wanted to send along a huge THANK YOU for your help with our event yesterday. Although we had less attendance then anticipated, those that were there loved the venue, LOVED the food, and were asking if they could come back! The staff were incredibly attentive, which is a blessing for an event planner as I didn’t have to chase anyone to clean up dirty dishes. Andrey was fantastic, and a huge help with organizing the elevators. Please pass along my thanks to the team.”

“Hello Richard and Andrey,
I would like to say thank you for an amazing party that we had on Saturday. I appreciated the great work by your staff. Very polite, pleasant and pleasure to be around. The ambience of the restaurant set the mood for the whole event. Please, thank the chef for all the dishes. I heard a lot of compliments about the food from my guests. And I know it is not easy to impress Russians. But it was beyond and above my expectations. Children also commented on the food. The mac and cheese was out of this world in their words.
Your hard work and professionalism have no words.
Andrey, the whole evening was so so smooth and easy because of you. I only had to look at you and you already knew what to do. It was pleasure working with you and I hope our paths will cross again in the future. You all went above and beyond to make our party a success and I am very grateful to you for that. My guests are still raving about the place, the food and the service.
I think there will be a lot of new customers in the restaurant in the future.
My compliment to the owners for keeping such a high standard restaurant in our beautiful Toronto.”
– Sweet 16 Bar Mitzvah | Corporate Dinner | May 2016 –
Thank you so much for helping to organize our event. The number of people during the evening worked out really well – packed, but comfortable.
We are known for having the best party of the Dental trade show, so everyone makes a point to attend. And I can’t tell you enough how much fun it is to have a party with someone as easy to work with as you. You made it so stress-free for me.
Thank you, in particular, for the dinner offer for Don and me. We love having dinner there, so thinking of coming up sometime in August. I’ll make sure to give you plenty of notice.”
– 3M | Dental Trade Show Party | May 2016 –
Thank you so much for your assistance leading up to our event.

Please pass on our gratitude to Matt, Stephen and then rest of the staff that helped our event run smoothly that night.”

“Jamie, I have no words to thank you enough. Saturday was yet another spectacular night at The Fifth. As always, it was a pleasure dealing with you. I also have to thank your entire team – they are truly incredible. The night was flawless and I was amazed at how no detail (no matter how big or small was overlooked.
A special shout out to the chef (the food was fantastic) and his team as well as to Steve (the bartender – whose personality and great vibe added to the great mood of the night). And, of course, to my favourite guy, Andrey. He is truly a huge asset to your venue and knowing he was there that night assured me that nothing could go wrong. And nothing did. He’s fantastic! Thanks so much Jamie for everything once again. I’m still ‘high’ on the excitement and happiness of a great night of celebration.”

On behalf of everyone at DisclosureNet, thank you. This was our 6th year at The Fifth! We truly enjoy it!
– DisclosureNet | Company Holiday Party | December 2015 –
I just wanted to thank you and your staff for everything you did to make our event a huge success. We didn’t leave until almost 11. I told you we like to party. LOL. The clients loved the venue and everyone had positive feedback. We will definitely book our next client event there. Again thank you so much. You have been terrific to deal with.

~ WEDDING ~
“Thank you so much Pina!
I just wanted to add that everyone raved about the food. One of the owners of The Harbord Room said it was the best steak she had eaten in a long time, and she was not expecting that at a wedding. I think that says a lot. Andrey was phenomenal and I just can’t speak highly enough of the night, all of the staff, and all of your help and organization.
Thank you so much for everything.”
– E & A | May 2016 –
I wanted to write and say thank you. We had a wonderful day at the Fifth on the weekend and everything went really well. The food was fantastic and so was the atmosphere. There was an overwhelming amount of love.
– A & E | May 2016 –
We would just like to say thank you to everyone at The Fifth for a beautiful night. The food was amazing, everything was just so delicious and the guests were raving about every course. The servers were so professional and on the ball. Andrey did a fantastic job manning the ship! It truly was a fine dining experience. Honestly, we were quite content with the entire evening and everything went smoothly. The guests were also impressed with the service.
We would also like to thank you for all your help from beginning to end! And thank you for being so patient with me/us during the entire planning process. We had a great time.”
– L & L | November 2015 –
We want to sincerely thank you for all your hard work in making our wedding very special. I’m sure you that it’s hard to slow down on the big day and take things in, but we’ve been informed by numerous guests that the food and the service was exceptional. You definitely met and exceeded our expectations on all fronts, and we couldn’t be happier with our choice of venue. We’ve even discussed making a tradition of celebrating Valentine’s day every year at The Fifth. Thanks again fro everything.

Thank you all so much for making our Wedding 2.0 (love that! haha) SOOO AWESOME! We received so many compliments throughout the night and now as well. Everyone loved the decor, the service and the food!!! We are so happy that we decided to celebrate our marriage at The Fifth! Throughout the planning, we didn’t know what quite to expect and it has exceeded our expectation.
Jamie – Thank you so much!!! You have helped us from the very beginning and we really appreciate all the advice you gave us and your creative thoughts and touches. We are so glad to have had you guide us through the steps of hosting such a big and important celebration.
Andrey – You were awesome. You made us feel so organized and at ease, even when things did not go as planned. You were our go to man for the night, and admire your dedication and professionalism.
Chef JP – The food was delicious!! You are an awesome chef. You probably didn’t hear but we heard all throughout the night how the food was so delicious. Thank you for preparing such a wonderful feast!
Please also thank all the staff at The Fifth – all the staff there were so helpful, courteous, and provided such excellent service to our guests! A big thank you to Kim!

“Hi Jamie – Thanks so much for everything. The staff and yourself were outstanding. It was a great experience, and you have a customer for life. 🙂
– C & G | July 2015 –
We wanted to say thank so very much for everything that you, Andrey, Chef and the entire team did to really put together a perfect day for us – the entire experience was amazing and even beyond what we expected. You especially did such a great job filling in the blanks with details that were exactly our style. Our guests were super impressed and raving about how it was teh best food they’d ever had at a wedding and about the venue in general. I knew we would be well taken care of when we chose The Fifth, but we have been continuously happily surprised at how easy you made everything and how accomodating you guys have been. When we asked Andrey if we could get the music any louder (it was maxed out), he fiddled with it and brought in a sound person to add an extra speaker! And that’s just one of so many examples. THANK YOU!”
– A & B | June 2015 –
Thank you so much for coordinating and putting together such a wonderful evening for us. I can’t tell you how many people came up to me throughout the night and commented on how beautiful the venue was and how great the food was.
Please thank Andrey a million times over for running around all night and helping us with our every request. Between myself, my mother and everyone else, we kept him quite busy! He was absolutely incredible. Your entire staff was so fantastic to us. Thank you so much for everything. We hope to be back soon for dinner, just the two fo us.

“We did enjoy it very much. Thank you so much for all your help; and please also thank the staff who was there that evening, because the quality of the service was absolutely outstanding. We will definitely be back for dinner when we decide to go out with some friends (and so will many of our guests I think, because they were all commenting on how delicious the food was, and how impeccable the service was). I’m glad we chose your place for an elegant wedding dinner: it was perfect! Thanks again”
