The Food was absolutly delicious! The service really friendly. It was a bit a long waiting time, but everything was amazing!
Sashimi was fresh and doing the torching of sushi on the table was fun.
ebisu’s happy hour menu has changed. There’s not as much options as before :( We chose to sit out on the patio overlooking Robson street, which was great.
It was all very good! We definitely will be back
Better than I expected. Thoroughly enjoyed the happy hours.
Sushi and rolls were quite good. Avoid the braised short rib - too tough. Too many screaming children in the restaurant to really enjoy the atmosphere. Will go somewhere else in the future.
Every time we go there, we have an amazing experience.The food and the service are great. I should say that after COVID we noticed some changes regarding the food quality. Lately, it has been getting better.
Service was awful. Food came before drinks, and we ordered drinks right away. Oysters had shells inside, and very un even in size.
Great service and delicious sushi. We went there for happy hour and it was busy but quiet. There is outdoor seating and the restaurant faces a little plaza set up with a few games (bean bag throwing, connect 4, etc) in Aug.
Tempura was amazingly good, light and crunchy and not too oily. Minimal menu, but good variety and great prices. Slightly off the main road, so even on the patio, the noise level was fine. And the service was great. I would definitely try this place again.
Impromptu dinner with a couple friends! They’re trying sushi for the first time so wanted to give them an experience! Food was excellent! All the torched/Aburi dishes are must-try! Esp the salmon poppers, we needed 2 servings! The seafood was fresh! It is kinda pricy for 8-16 pieces of sashimi.
Knocked off a couple stars as when we made a second order to the kitchen, we did have a bit of a wait, but we were busy chatting, so it was fine, but yes, timely in between dishes served.
Knocked off a star as we did see Mickey Mouse lurking on the patio outside! eeeek…
Poor service . First ones there and they forgot half our order to the point people after us were getting their food. Had to ask another server for help as we hardly saw ours.
Sat on the patio. Tiny mice running around outside. Service was slow. Food was not worth the wait. Many better options and choice along Robson St.
Absolutely wonderful experience at Ebisu! It was our first time in Vancouver so they set us up on the outdoor balcony with a lovely view of the city/street. Food was delicious and service was very attentive and friendly. Other reviewers have said the food service was slow, but we were in no rush and enjoyed every moment!
Highly recommend the Robson Rolls!
We all had fun and enjoyed ourselves! The food was delicious!
Was a great place to eat and drink at, our 6 year old granddaughter loved it,
I would have given a higher rating but the fact the washrooms were dirty and he floor very sticky left me with concerns on the overall cleaning less of the restaurent. Quite unusual to see during covid time.
Tips were included into the bill at a fixed %, which wasn't conveyed to the customer at any time during the dining experience, the washrooms weren't cleaned properly and IDs weren't even checked for when alcohol was ordered.
Hadn't heard of this place. We're on our vacation and decided to check them out and just wow. The food, atmosphere, service, did I mention the food ? The food was phenomenal, not a bad bite with anything we ordered for the whole table.
Oysters happy hour were not as advertised. The menu said limit 12 per person for happy hour oyster pricing, but they only allowed us to order 6 per person. Otherwise we would have to pay full price. We went there for oysters and was disappointed. Oysters could have been better. FYI Gratuity is added onto the bill automatically. The rest of the food we ordered was good. Happy hour pricing isn’t bad.
Very poor fish quality, wife got sick on the way home.
ebisu is a great place to meet up with friends and family, because it has an extensive menu that will cater to most everyone in your crowd. They have indoor and patio dining. Love their happy hour truffle fries and tuna tacos, along with their karaage chicken and calamari. Lots of fun cocktails to choose from too.
Great food! We had a variety of offerings and none of them disappointed.
Just awful customer service. Two of the items we ordered were completely different than pictured and the manager was a real b**ch.
Really warm and no a/c. Pretty slow service, only 1x gluten free item on menu and server wasn’t even clear on what GF was.
Awesome place, food and service! Highly recommend.
Very loud Rap music that spoiled lunch. Very slow service despite only two other tables with guests. Skinny menu - very little choice. From what was on menu, our selection was tasty and very good value.
Very nice Japanese Restaurant.
Fun atmosphere and sport TV channels on too
Good early bird prices too
Good food. Good service. Good price.
Food was very average but very pricy, used to like here when I was younger but this time when I went, I feel like the place is very worn out and washroom is soooooo dirty, felt like I was at a shady gas station washroom. And directly affected my mood for eating. Do not recommend.
Great service but food quality can be improved ! Also more social distancing needed. We are way too close to each other, although I do understnd you to keep your business going.
Food was meh, got lunch bento. Tuna not very fresh.
The drinks are great but the sushi/udon was average for an expensive price. Overall wasn’t horrible. 7/10
Great restaurant even better prices. Favorite sushi place in the city.
Food isn’t as good as precovid
Friendly service. Good prices. Tasty food. Happy hour is excellent.
Service has gone way down recently. The service used to be great here. No leadership and service staff had no idea what they were doing. 3 separate servers brought us glasses of water then disappeared for 25 minutes after we ordered our food and drinks. We asked several times for our first drink order but they kept saying, "Oh you didn't get it yet?:
Gyoza was luke warm. Oysters were pathetically small and dry. Fries were the only thing hot we got and those took over 20 minutes to get, after asking for them again, which then went to the wrong table first... during a pandemic, but they just brought them over to us after anyway. Beer glasses were not chilled. Beer took half an hour to get. 2 or 3 servers would come at the same time and then nobody for a long time. I even gave my feedback at the end and a lead server tried to tell me she had worked there for 10 years and nothing had changed.... though I am a regular for over 10 years and I've never seen her before. All new staff with no experience. Japanese staff is gone.
Big thumbs down on service.
Washroom was also not clean... broken toilet.
Something has changed for the worse. I hope they fix it or we won't go back.
Great service and great food! Highly recommend! Will cone back again
We went mid-week for happy hour and were very impressed. Felt safe with all staff wearing masks and guests being socially distanced. Both the service and food quality were great. Loved the buck-a-shuck oysters! Will be back soon.
