The tasting menu was outstanding and the service was superb as was the view over the Harbour. The ownership of the restaurant is changing as of 1 January. The chef and his wife were owners. I hope the next managers take as much care to keep Five Sails such a wonderful restaurant.

Food was amazing! Lamb and beef were delicious and cooked perfectly! The tenderloin was mediocre partly due to the way it was cooked. It was cut too thin and resulted in being overlooked. The duck breast was very tender and juicy.

The only flaw was the scallops. One of the scallops had a small piece of shell, which I think for a restaurant this level should not let this happen. I told the waiter and he didn’t do anything about it other than just a simple apology.

Service was very slow. There was only one main waiter serving the whole dining area. We waited at least 15 min for the main course to be served. Because of this delay, we couldn’t have our dessert because they needed the table back by 7:30pm.

Overall, great food but the service needs to be improved for sure!

You’re paying for the views outside, that’s it. The food was like half the portion of other upscale dining places, which was surprising to me.

We got the sablefish and it didn’t taste fresh at all. It had this fishiness taste (when the fish isn’t fresh). It tasted awful and we told the host.

Overall, food quality wasn’t good at all. The portions for the price was awful. The value for your money, even for an upscale downtown restaurant is awful. Go elsewhere.

Chef and Gerry did an outstanding job. The city is going to miss them when they go off to their next projects.

It was my wife’s birthday and it brought back all the happy years she was associated with the restaurant and hotel.

Chef set a very high standard which I am the Five Sails will maintain.

The service was great! The staff were very friendly, respectful, and patient. They brought extra treats for us since it was my wife and I’s 25th anniversary! The food was great as well. I have never had a steak more tender than the one at 5 sales! Highly recommend checking this restaurant out.

They were very attentive to a serious food allergy, and produced outstanding and beautiful food that my friend could enjoy. They accommodated our large party with grace, and made it easy to host a reunion of friends. The quiet, refined atmosphere was perfect for convivial conversation. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

It was my wife’s birthday so I asked them to provide a cake for her. But instead of a cake they brought a tiny/super small cake with a small candle.
Also it was so funny, they asked us to order dessert even before they brought the tiny cake just because of they wanted to be sure that we order dessert. It was super cheap.
We orders appetizer and main course and both of them were OK.
You can find much better place with the same price.
I really really don’t recommend this place.

Everything about this restaurant is amazing; from the beautiful waterfront location, the more than excellent service, and a very romantic atmosphere (if that’s what you are looking for; if not, the ambiance of the restaurant is also great for a business dinner or a night out with friends), this shining star of Vancouver’s nightlife met, and went beyond, all of our expectations.

While the prices may feel steep, the food is assuredly worth it: fine dining at its best!

Other than a noticeable lack of ketchup at the table, the evening was very pleasant: attentive service without obsequiousness, well balanced flavours, portions of sufficient size to eat from entree to desert without loosening the belt, and a peaceful atmosphere.
Prices for this quality of food and service are quite reasonable; one can spend much more for much less.

Delightful evening, everything we ordered was exquisitely prepared and delicious. Highly recommend the scallop appetizer, probably the best I’ve ever had. 2 large scallops perfectly prepared w complex flavors, perfect texture,. We arrive before sunset, great view of waterfront and lovely catching the sky change colors. attentive service, at times a bit formal. Perfect for special occasion.

You can’t beat Five Sails. We have made Five Sails our tradition for an annual sibling get together. This was our second year. Fabulous food, service and ambiance. We could talk and hear one another. Lastly, what a view!

One of the best meals of my life! The food delicious ,hot (they heat the plates !l) expertly timed once apps were finished plates were whisked away only to be replaced moments later with our entrees. I had the ravioli with hazelnut brown butter, smooth buttery ricotta/spinach filled with crispy hazelnuts , then the lamb rack and loin with whipped potatoes yum ! Finally go for the souffle for dessert (take a 25 min so order after app) they really nail the textures and flavor combinations. The view was spectacular the ambiance muted enough so as to have your company and the conversation take center stage. Service was prompt informative and just personable enough not to take away from the dinner. Just superb will be back!!
