We were in Vancouver for an afternoon before catching the VIA Canadian train to Jasper. Recommended by a friend of someone who works there. We had an early reservation because our train left at 8:30PM. The service was great, the local Howe lager was icy cold and the 2 different pizzas and cauliflower dish were fabulous! Great ideas about what to eat from the server. The location was an easy walk from Stanley Park.

Inter-generational dining with three children on our first day in Vancouver. My grandchildren were jet lagged, as it’s a 3 hour time change difference from Toronto. We had an early morning and a full day visiting the city. The kids were half asleep but your staff were understanding, sensitive and exceptionally attentive to serving us in a quick and timely manner. The food was also exceptional. Thanks

Service was excellent and great food! My family and I were in town on vacation and needed a last minute dinner reservation. My brother and I love tapas-style dining but my parents hadn't tried it before and were a bit skeptical. The waiter was very helpful with choosing meals and suggesting the amount of food to order. The drinks were also great (try the bramble). We ordered seven plates and they were all delicious!

Dined for our anniversary. Had zucchini blossom pizza, longanisa sausage, hangar steak and drinks. Pizza could have been a margherita for all we knew as couldn't tell there were any zucchini blossoms on it, and was quite salty. The sausage was also overly saucy. The steak was good. Our server was on and off and she would disappear for extended periods of time. Disappointment mainly came from lack of acknowledgement of our anniversary. I saw the server for the table next to us bring out a small cupcake with a candle for someone's birthday so that's great for them. Maybe this restaurant wasn't the place to go for a special occasion

Well, this is about as good as it gets in Vancouver! From course to course, my wife and I kept saying that it cannot get better, but it does! The seared kampachi and ponzu sauce was as good of a raw dish as I've had in a very long time. I also very much enjoyed the fava beans with fresh dill and other fresh herbs--perfectly seasoned and excellent for the summer. I am not normally a big pasta fan, but my wife and I enjoyed the spaghetti with clams in a white wine sauce... Trust me, this is not your typical Italian fare! The service was perfect, and we had a very enjoyable time. I highly recommend that you reserve in advance as the place is full and buzzing. That said, it is still possible to have a conversation at the table despite the ambient noise.

Went here for my husband birthday booked 1 week in advance . The food, experience and ambiance was very good. The only thing that truly disappointed me was I had requested best sit in the house and they said not a problem. But when we got there, the sits that were given to us was in the corner which had notthing special to offer. And they brought us a cake at the end of the night and charged us. I never paid for a requested birthday reservation, and the restaurant charged me for the slice of cake.

Very solid on all levels. Had to wait at the bar to be seated at 5:00 but no biggie. Ordered a s#%£load of food and most was excellent. Server was a guy from Coquitlam. He was great. Dry humour is never lost on my wife and I. Well done. Best part of the meal apart from the risotto.

My dining partner and I ordered 4 plates. Started with the baby kale salad which was perfectly dressed. Saute broccolini was amazingly flavourful. Arctic char was beautifully done down to the 3 "spears" of charred artichokes. My partner enjoyed the nutty sauce more than me. And the spicy sausage pizza was really great. Awesome chewy crust...and dripping with savory sauce. Every plate was cleaned off...sparkling water was the perfect palate cleanser...the only negative was the service was too slow at the end...our 1 hour 45 minute lunch experience should really have been 1 hour 15 minutes with the proper service at the end...

It is always a pleasure at Nightingale :) I brought my family here who are first timers and they loved it. We must have ordered like 15 dishes including dessert and the food just kept coming at the perfect pace! The service was amazing as well. I also noticed that their whole staff was very proactive and always doing something productive which is a plus!

Pleasantly surprised! We chose this restaurant only for its proximity to our hotel downtown Vancouver and because it was open early since we had a concert to go to after. It is beautifully decorated, great bar, and so many choices on the menu. The menu is made for sharing, small and larger plates, you order several for the table. They have amazing wood fired pizzas, our teenage kids each ordered one. The vegetable dishes were flavorful and unique. The waitress was very helpful in ordering so we would not have too much or too little food. We ate every last bite of each dish! Delicious!! Highly recommend.

Food was incredible and service was top-notch. We had a chef's table and were able to see all the food coming out of the kitchen, and the chef walked us through each dish personally. The fried chicken is the stuff dreams are made of, but be sure to ask for extra pickles!

We really enjoyed our recent experience at Nightingale. It was our second time dining but we tried 5 things we hadn't tried last time. The service was impeccable, every detail was attended to. I would stick with wine over cocktails next time as my cocktail was lacking something, it was tasty but not amazing. The food was 10/10 across the board. We will be back in the near future!

Horrid experience - nothing on the menu was dairy free and they wouldn’t change anything. Will not go back! How hard is it to NOT put unmelted grated cheese top of a dish. Plus there was no allergy menu.
