It was a very good restaurant, I loved it, its view, atmosphere and spectacular service. I take the best memories
The service, view, food presentation and dessert were exceptional, the main dishes flavors were not quite there for me.
We had a wonderful relaxing dinner - server was friendly and efficient and the food was amazing . I can usually find something to whine about but not this time- beautifully presented and just as tasty.
The friendliness of the rest of the staff and the lovely view capped it off nicely .
Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary and everything was 1st class. Food was spectacular
Great service, food and attention! Wonderful dining experience with lovely, attentive staff!
One of our favourite spots!
As two couples celebrating a much anticipated vacation to the US and Canada, we were very pleased with our evening at Five Sails and throughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for a job well done...
Our requested table by a window was perfect for viewing the harbor and the night lights. Service was very good. Food was excellent but small portions for the price. Don't ask for ice tea refills. You will get charged for each refill. First time I've ever been charged for each refill. But overall, it was a good experience.
Amazing service, from the moment you step in. Quality and presentation of the food is amazing, top notch. Great value too you get what you pay for. Will definitely be coming back!
I loved the food along with the art of the food. There was a lot of attention to detail with beautiful presentation. The service was amazing and a great wine selection. We will definitely be back.
We had an amazing time. The food was wonderful, warm inviting and unique. We loved watching the sea planes take off and land and watching the always changing mountains and water activity. We had a very special date night, not one we will soon forget.
Amazing food, very creatively prepared, wide and excellent variety of wines. View on the waterfront is perfect!
Came to Van for vacation and were celebrating; amazing food and ambience! Would definitely recommend and would come again. Thank you for a nice evening!
Absolutely wonderful! The highlight of our 50th Anniversary -- most personal, thanks to Gerry, the Chef, our waiter and the numerous extras showered on us!! We've recommended you to several other couples this week.
Awesome harbor view. Very elegant place. Food is very good, but it does have small portions. Adequate, but small, yet very tasty.
Excellent service; great food, wonderful ambience
Excellent food and top notch service. Could use a decor update and some items, including wine, a bit overpriced. View is unmatched and very quiet which allows for good conversation.
A fantastic experience. The cuisine was delicious and the staff exceptional.
Special birthday dinner. We did the Chef's Menu with wine pairing. Excellent. Lovely servers. A night to remember.
It was perfect ..... we couldn’t have asked for anything more.... everything was wonderful ... the food the service the view .... awesome!!
Excellent service, food is always tasty and very good presentation.
If you are looking for a high end restaurant, this is it. The food and service are wonderful. The views are amazing. Try it, you will love it
Great food and careful presentations. The service was perfect. A few dishes are overpriced but overall it was great. Nice views of the waters and North Shore!
Lovely restaurant with a gorgeous view of the Vancouver harbour. Good food, nice service. Check the price of the glass of champagne before you order!
This was the first time we went to the Five Sails. It was a wonderful experience. The food and service were exceptional. We will definitely return.
We were so happy with everything except the party beside us that took photos of each other and the view during our entire meal, which we found very disconcerting, especially as it was quite clear from the menu that this was discouraged
Absolutely amazing dinner. Outstanding service. Magnificently prepared courses. Michelin Star please!!! Highly recommended. Don’t miss the tasting menu please.
The service was impeccable, there when you want it, not when you don't. The hostess took down my allergies, and followed up when I ordered and saved me from an unpleasant result. The severs were relaxed, there is a lovely view, the food was excellent.
Slightly flustered meal. Tasting menu didn’t feel relaxing. Some good standout dishes like the crab and the dessert. Suck skin wasn’t crispy and fat not rendered enough plus the beef whilst great had a burnt tasting sauce. Overall it was ok and with just a few tweaks could be great. Lovely views.
Honestly, this restaurant blew me away. I didn’t know it existed until i literally googled “fancy restaurants in downtown vancouver” and it did not disappoint. The view is breathtaking, the food is scrumptious, and the service is impeccable. Highly recommend this place to anybody, you won’t be disappointed.
The food was amazing. We had the duck and the lamb and it was perfect. The souflee was the best I’ve ever had. The staff were absolutely wonderful. Considering the view, the ambiance, and the quality of the food, it’s quite reasonably priced for downtown Vancouver. Will absolutely come again!
We had relatives from England with us and they were as impressed as we were.
A delicious dinner with a spectacular panoramic view of the harbor. The triple seafood appetizer was a great mix of flavors, the main courses of steak, duck and veal were all cooked perfectly. The mushroom crab risotto was extraordinary All topped off with a delicious desert.
Lisa provided service throughout that was top of the line.
Definitely a stop for us next time we are in Vancouver..
lovely evening overlooking the harbour. welcoming service, mouthwatering menu, excellent food
One of the best meals I have ever had. Quality of food and service was outstanding plus there is a fantastic view. I wanted to return immediately for another dinner The food was lovely to look at and even better to eat. A great place for a leisurely meal and good conversation.
Wonderful dinner and excellent service. Highly recommend.
The view was incomparable. The restaurant decor is kinda faded and kind of crying out for an update. What does not need any update is the service which is kind of old school and very personable.
The seafood was outstanding - the halibut and the Dover sole were perfect.
I misread the price range on OpenTable. That said, it was a wonderful experience! The meal, view and service were extraordinary while comfortable at the same time. Would highly recommend for a special occasion.
Super friendly and professional staff. Went the extra mile to help us celebrate a 25th wedding anniversary.
Visits to the Sails never disappoints! We always look forward to the next opportunity to sample their cuisine.
