Went for my wife’s birthday and we had a great time. Staff was excellent and the ambience incredible as our table was overlooking the beach. Good seafood and overall happy experience. Highly recommend it!

We love this restaurant and try to go during the week as the weekends can be fairly busy. When the restaurant is busy and full the noise level is very high and the service isn’t quite the same as when the restaurant isn’t quite so busy. The food is ALWAYS incredible, drinks are great and the service is generally excellent so long as they’re not too busy. I will always highly recommend this restaurant based on the food quality, the location on the beach and the overall experience we have had here.

Disclaimer the waitress told us (at the end of the meal) that the main over was broken baking up the kitchen. But took over an hour to get our entrees and they were not full. Dishes served a minute apart and not together. Food was decent but I expected a little more for the price. Beautiful location on the coast.

The food was average and very expensive. The martini was weak. The windowsill was disgustingly dirty and the decor was not very nice with unfinished tables. The service was good but the noise level was really loud.

Lovely ambiance- this restaurant was the most popular on the avenue. Service was fantastic, the food was good the appetizers could have been better- the special was the best meal vs ordering from the menu. I had the halibut and my husband had the seafood pot- Overall great place- I would go there again-

As always the food and drinks were amazingly delicious and the service was excellent. This is easily one of my top five favourite restaurants to visit! It was our 7 year anniversary and we were given a delicious dessert with a sparkler! We had a fantastic time....thank you! We will be back soon. I highly recommend this fabulous restaurant.

This quickly becoming my favourite restaurant in the White Rock-South Surrey area. We've been dining out a fair bit recently - lots of company, lots of celebrations. This place has the best food by far! Then add a great ambience, friendly staff (who never leave you waiting but also don't hover) and a lovely view. Highly recommend

The noise from the kitchen was unbearable, dishes and pots constantly dropping and banging unable to carry on a conversation at the table. Management should deal with the staff in regards to being respectful of the patrons in the restaurant.

Did not enjoy my $25 soggy flatbread with salty salmon nor the thick sliced chewy carpaccio for $17. Apparently the fish and chips were great.
Glad the Raptors won though

I took my mother to 5 for her birthday since she loves oysters. Everything exceeded my expectations, the food , the service and the ambience were excellent. I will be back there for dinner next time I’m in white rock.

Five has become a tradition when I visit my mother over her birthday. This time she was 96. I was so glad my husband could join me this year.

The meals were wonderful and the mango salsa on prawns out of this world.

All the staff were exceptionally helpful and efficient.

When my broken ankle heals I will be able to return from California more often and enjoy Five.

Many thanks.

Was ok. We were there for Mother's Day so it was busy. The waitress greeted my mom with a bold "Welcome back!" - an interesting choice seeing as we'd never been there before. The mains were decent - fish n chips and smoked salmon Benedict. They didn't have a printed desert menu. That way you can't see how much they cost! The pistachio cheesecake was NOT worth $12. Again: the pistachio cheesecake was NOT worth $12. Not even close. Density of plutonium, taste most closely resembled something that had been congealed, and I got the general sense that it'd been sitting for a while. Was ok overall, but I wouldn't rush back there any time soon.

Disappointing. Mussels dry and rubbery. Paella not enough saffron and also dry. Hot pot had almost no fish. Wine selection very weird. Would avoid this place.

Our server Leah was fantastic! We would go back just for that reason alone.

The food was also outstanding! Fresh Halibut and fresh ahi tuna dinners were exceptional. Overall, a must try in White Rock. We’ll definitely be back.

We enjoyed our experience with Five Kitchen & Oyster Bar. My husband had their March feature of Filet Mignon & Lobster and found it exceptional in both taste and presentation. The crabcakes were also delicious. The service was prompt and our server was friendly and attentive. Although we did find it rather pricey. The construction fences for the pier and promenade improvements by the city were up, but once completed, the view would be lovely, especially at sunset.

Great service, great food and lovely location! Very accommodating as they were very happy to adjust for any food allergies (shellfish & dairy), which was much appreciated. Food tasted so fresh, which is why I'm sure they can adjust for allergies (usually cheese is mixed into everything already, but they were able to do all the dishes we ordered with no cheese!).

Food was fantastic, had the 5 course meal and I was amazed. The raw scallops were thinly cut and tasted phenomenal. Did not expect such high food based upon the restaurant front. Servers were perfect, coming to us when needed and let us enjoy our meal. Highly recommend.

Great food. I made a reservation a week or so ago and said it was for a 50th Birthday and wanted a cozy booth. Got there no booths available except half booth. 🙄. A little disappointed. The owner didn’t seem to care. Anyways the server was fantastic!!!!! She really catered to us as she did with other tables. The food was delicious as always.
