    Take out money from (not at)
    Have a meal at(or in) a restaurant (I would prefer 'in')

    Thanks Sarat.

    Can't we ever say: We can take out some money in a bank?

    Thanks

    I would say that it's technically possible to use the following:

    We take money out of our bank account.
    We take money out over the counter in a bank.
    We take money out of an ATM at a bank.
    I'm going to get some money from the ATM (though I wouldn't normally say from the bank).

    I think it depends on the construction of a sentence:

    I was in the bank, taking out some money....
