In Vancouver for one night to end our trip so wanted somewhere nice and preferably with a view. Five Sails has a great view, fantastic food and lovely staff.

Gerry, the Owner was in charge of the reception. Exceptional service and whenever i book for a table, I always get the best. The food was prepared well and the service was impeccable.
My choice of fine dining.

The service was amazing. The ambiance, the closeup view of Vancouver’s harbour, Stanley Park and the North Shore mountains is unrivalled in Vancouver. The wine list was fabulous. The food, although portions were elegantly small and artistically displayed was delicious. It was old world elegance personified.

The food is consistently of high quality over several years of visits. From land to sea, the entrees are delicious, well balanced and satisfying. Save a little room for dessert, as these are some of the best in the city. We've been ho-hum about dessert lately (too sweet, too trendy, just okay) and Five Sails had us wanting to lick our plates!

Good food, good service, but unjustifiably overpriced

We were somewhat disappointed considering the ratings. The food was very good but the delivery to the table disppointed. We waited very long for the main dishes and 2 of the 3 - both meat dishes, arrived relatively cold. Bit of a comedown. The interior looks corporate and dated, probably what you should expect in a convention centre. The service was ok-ish buy nothing special

Great view, service and food. The only hitch was that one of a trio of appetizers - the ceviche - didn't have any flavor. To the restaurant's credit, after we brought that to their attention, they brought us a second one that was much better! Low key but friendly and professional service.

The food is good. The view is terrific. And the service is on another level compared to anything else I've experienced in the city. They keep a book of all their repeat guests and will remember you, your food preferences, any allergies or sensitivities, significant events. It's an amazing feeling to be treated this way.

Five sails is not cheap, but this is classic fine dining in every way. If you were looking for a place to take your picky parents or in-laws, or wow the socks off an out-of-town guest or potential business partner, this is the place to do it.

And both their seafood and non-seafood dishes, while not particularly daring, are always perfectly executed.
