C5 Restaurant in the ROM

So I was a Birthday Boy at the C5 on Saturday and didn't have access to the final bill but I know for five people with gratuity we dropped around $600 dollars.
For this we had a prime round table right in the point of the wonderful space,where view of the CN tower and the sunset are afforded.
Don't pull on the blinds if the sun gets in your eyes-they are power assist.
Expect a full-service manner i.e.-water,wine,bread all replinished mostly without asking.
Napkins are placed on your lap and attended to if you leave the table.
Pleasant servers,I found the crew unobtrusive.
Expensive wine list.$200 was spent on three bottles of wine,including two glasses of $12 tawny port to go with the cheese platters.
There was a option to go with the seven course $95 per person chefs tasting,with the stipulation that everyone at the table had to order it.So,not for us this time.
Menu was different that what is currently shown on the website.
What we ordered:
C1-two large mixed Charcuterie Platters
C2-Four people had:
1XRabbit parpadelle,pasta
2Xprosciutto,salad greens
1XPorkBelly,Beluga Lentils,Calamari
C3-Main Course:
1X-Cumbrae 60 day aged Beef Tenderloin with duck foie gras(Me!)
C4-After Dinner:
2X-Assorted Cheese Platters with Thin Crostini
[Abandon restaurant and head back to our rooms at the Marriot where we celebrated with homemade birthday cake,champagne and presents!]

Guests indicated they would return for another type of venue i.e.-lunch or tea.
For myself,it really was a night of good memories,celebrating an event with family.We do not often have the opportunity to get out togetther as a group.
Parting with such a large sum would lead me to obviously try other restaurants.
Hopefully an equivalent experience presented in a different way.
