We serve the best, top quality steaks from around the world - US Certified Angus Beef and Australian 'Kobe' and the grade A5 100% Japanese Wagyu - highest grade of beef in the world. Our menu is also very accommodating with several non-red meat options and different sized portions available. Great for an outing with friends, a business dinner, or a romantic evening on the town- 5A5 caters to those looking for outstanding food & service complemented by a fun & upbeat dining experience. 5A5 - 5 senses / the A5 experience

Went here one night for dinner.Had the special tomahawk ribeye which was HUGE 33oz to be exact.It was cooked to perfection and delicious.Everything else is a la carte sides everything else so adds to the price of the meal.The do offer 100% Kobe beef but a little too pricey for me.The food was excellent and the do offer certain little tastes of tidbits made by the chef which are served at different times while your eating which enhances the meal and the experience.

Enjoyed my steak - got the bone in NY. Sides were good but small (and a la carte so extra $$).

Very much enjoyed my meal. Cool atmosphere. Staff was fantastic.

Not sure it was worth the price though. I guess if you want to splurge but I'm not sure I'd pick here for that.

From the moment you are welcomed and seated to the end of your meal, the restaurant staff are constently ensuring that your experience is nothing short of perfection. My wife and I had steak and prime rib. Both were superbly prepared and declicious. It should be noted that everything on the menu is À la Carte so any sides you add on will cost you more and it can get pricey but in the end it is worth it and the sides are served separately so can be shared amongts the diners. They have a great wine selection and if you wish, you can bring your own but they will charge a $20 corkage fee for the first bottle, $30 for two, etc... Still cheaper than their cheapest wine. However, what seperated this restaunrant from many others was the constant supply of items to taste before the meal, during and after. The chefs prepare different delicacies each day and these are served during the meal at appropriate times for your enjoyment. This makes a big difference on your overall experience.

Note for washrooms, these are located downstairs and are not your typical washrooms. The room is dark and they are more remeniscent of what you'd find on an airplane with a series of doors lined up one next to the other with a red light indicator to tell you which stall is free. Using the taps is also confusing as what you would think is the tap is actually the water spout. The tap is actually controlled by a little tab just underneath the black "marble" ledge. There are also no sinks per se but rather a trough. Again, a different experience.

This restaurant is stunning. Very modern, cool lighting, wow factor all round. Steaks here are outstanding! On the pricey side but a definite must if you like steak! Service was impeccable, very personalised and professional...just as it should be in such a place! Would highly recommend.

Our dinner plans fell through and I had to find a table for 7 people on a Friday night at 8:30pm. We had a 30 minute wait, but they got us a table. Food was great. Service was excellent.
