Delicious food excellent views of water, Lions Gate bridge and mountain. Service was excellent. We did enjoyed our time and comfort food.
We were treated in such a welcoming manner. Everyone was very professional and well informed. The only disappointment was that the dress code was too casual. In fact there was a table next to us where the clients were wearing a hoody. It is such an eloquent surroundings that one would hope for a code that at least required a shirt.
Fresh and tasty food with character. Excellent service.
Very good food, nice view.
Was disappointed that pretty much every desert had some sort of dairy component. Yes, could order one and eliminated the cream or ice cream, but not very good value.
Non dairy coffee creamer was not available either.
I asked for non dairy creamer and server didn't know if they had any. I responded if it was available I'd have coffee with my group, if not, I wouldn't. Three coffees were brought for my companions, and not even a word to me... I was ignored. Finally I called to a server to ask if there was mint tea - but the staff didn't suggest anything while bringing the coffees.
A large portion of the entrees also were heavy with dairy. When I asked the server for help to chose the non dairy options, her respond was pretty lukewarm.
Quality of meal was excellent, but interaction with staff was pretty average. We all came away with the same feeling that it was a one off visit and would not recommend this place to our friends.
We’ve been dining at Five Sails for close to 15 years, and it is always outstanding. Food, service, and the view are all top-notch.
Enjoyed a lovely meal here with some colleagues. One guest was celebrating his birthday, and the staff did a very nice job of recognizing that occasion. The chef also accommodated this guest's specific allergies, which was greatly appreciated. Overall, it was a wonderful evening, and I would recommend Five Sails, especially for a special occasion.
We had an excellent meal-the tasting menu- with wonderful service; a truly Michelin experience!
Do try it, you won’t be disappointed.
Had a very enjoyable dinner. Sea bass and tenderloin of veal were excellent. Both house specialties. Apple strudel was authentic and delicious, perhaps because the chef is Austrian this dessert tastes
Like it’s really Vienna. Overall great meal with a wonderful view of the harbor.
Tasting menu is delicious, excellent service and environment. Good for friends' gathering and anniversary.
As close to old school European service and gastronomic food you can get in Vancouver. MICHELIN worthy with amazing view to match.
We went there for a special birthday and were not disappointed. The service and food was excellent. They gave us a few special items for the occasion. We talked with one of the co-owners who was out working among the tables. She was very personable and pleasant. Thank you for a fantastic meal.
Overrated. Service was poor. Disappointing We enjoyed the view.
Beautiful restaurant all around! The food and drinks were heavenly and it was mesmerizing to watch the planes land and take off in the sunset.
Top-notch food and excellent service. Want to impress your colleague/date? Take them here.
We were running behind and a quick call pushed back our reservation without trouble. Once everyone had arrived, we were very promptly served and had a lovely pre-appetizer complements of the chef. Both presentation and flavour were top notch.
Wait staff were attentive, polite and patient.
We had a wonderful evening.
We went to celebrate my husband birthday last night and had the best time, very romantic and food is amazing
Nice place to visit when in Vancouver but nothing “special” as one would expect in comparison to the charges. Food was well prepared. For the most part the staff was gracious and engaging but the staff member serving our table was simply poor in both attitude and attention.
There are so many choices in this very cosmopolitan when it comes to dining so my advice to fellow travelers is to bypass this establishment.
Was there celebrating my wife's birthday. The staff was very accomadating, suggested we change tables as better quiet table was available. They ensured when a had a great experience. The service and food was top notch to go with a magnificent view of Vancouver. Will definetly
We took my parents there for their anniversary, and this place was amazing! Everything was just well managed, from the service to atmosphere to the food all 5 star. They tried to call me a day in advance to ask if we have any food allergies, if we have any special diet. When we asked their recommendation on the menu, our server did provide his honest recommendation. The food was literally the best food I had ever had. On top of the appetizer and dessert that we ordered, the restaurant provided us complimentary soup and desert.
Great work FiveSails. Thank you for making this a great memory!
This restaurant is worth the price. Beautiful waterfront location, exceptional cuisine prepared by a kitchen staff that knows what they are doing and truly cares about your dining experience and a wait staff that is friendly and fun while being extremely professional. We are from Arizona and this meal was the highlight of our trip to the Pacific Northwest.
Couldn’t fault a thing. The food was absolutely amazing; prepared and presented beautifully.
Service was perfect.
Would totally recommend to others.
Tolles Restaurant an der Waterfront mit Essen im 1-2 Michelin Sterne/ 15-16 gault-millau Punkte Niveau.
We dined at Five Sails for our five year anniversary, and enjoyed every bite and every minute. The view, even on a cloudy day was lovely, and everything down to the bread and butter was delicious.
This restaurant provided excellent food and service that made a special occasion even more memorable. The quality of the food was exceptional and was matched by the service from first to last throughout the evening.
Food was amazing and staff were excellent. The soufflé was to die for.
A great find during our short stay. Staff was exceptional.
We were there for my birthday and it was excellent. Food was very tasteful. We had a table by window and the experience was unforgettable
Chocolate Opera is definitely killing me so good
I got engaged with my x wife there in 1990. I was in town with my new woman and her cousins and we all were extremely satisfied. Awsome! will see you again
Great food, excellent service. The view was very cool.
We celebrated our first anniversary here & they presented us with a dainty cake topped by a candle
Food location & staff fantastic
Thanks for a superb evening
Excellent service. Very nice tasting menu and accompanying wines. Fantastic view.
The food was outstanding and the service was even better. With a good view to boot, this place is excellent for a special night!
A small menu choice but the food was excellent. Our party had the beef,lamb and sea bass and all were cooked to perfection. Great desserts too and the soufflé was well worth the wait! Ask for a table by the window to enjoy panoramic views of the bay. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Thank you!
Nice atmosphere with a great service and delicious food.
One of the best meals we have ever had. The service couldn’t have been better, attentive without being intrusive and friendly but professional. We will definitely be going back again next time we are in Vancouver!
