Had dinner
fine

eaten dinner
fine. Not necessary, because 'having' dinner involves eating it, so it is less common, but it is common enough to be normal for some people.

taken dinner
no. You only take pills and medicines.


In some older literature you might read of people 'taking' their meal -
I always take breakfast at eight, followed by a walk around the estate.
But that is when you have staff to make it for you! I think it would be very odd to most people nowadays, in most situations.
