Good looking restaurant with interesting menu and open late enough to dine after 10 ( rare in Vancouver). Food was very good with two small quibbles - pizza was on the cold side and the sweet potatoes had a bit too much garnish and not quite enough potato

I love Nightingale! The service is impeccable, the food amazing and the atmosphere is fun. Not a quiet romantic dinner place though. More of a place to go with a good table full of people so that you can try numberous share plates. I wanted to order one of everything but there were only two of us!

The server was okay - definitely not great. The lamb chops were not as good as we expected them to be. The server was not concerned when we told her we had enjoyed everything except the lamb chops. For the price, it was not an unforgettable experience. It won't be on my "must go again" list.

I like this restaurant. Not sure why they would choose to cook one pizza 🍕 before the other. I had to insist my friend start eating his before it got cold. He was half way through by the time mine came.

I've enjoyed both dinner and lunch at Nightingale. Both times I was seated upstairs. The serving sizes of most dishes are perfect for sharing between two people for maximum enjoyment of a multiple-course selection. The menu caters to a wide range of preferences--there's something for everyone. The dining room's setting is relaxed and comfortable while maintaining a high standard of hospitality.

We had a wonderful and romantic dinner tonight. The hostess was warm and welcoming, our table was well lit and comfortable, and the food was outstanding. Our server, Victoria, had wonderful energy and helped curate our amazing dining experience. I have worked in the food and beverage industry for 12 years and I was floored at how she truly made us feel welcome. She used her knowledge and attention to detail making tonight a memorable evening that will be next to impossible to replicate.

We went for and Anniversary lunch, because we were in Vancouver on other business. Although our original reservation was for 1:45- the earliest posted; the hostess was able to seat as by the fireplace at 12:15 and then at a table 10 minutes later. Small plates menu was varied. We tried buttermilk fried chicken, meatballs, and broccolini greens. All were generous servings. Also a shared seasonal dessert- sweet corn ice cream with marinated cherries.
Many tables of four were ordered pizzas- which also looked very good.

Nightengale was recommended to me by a native of the city, and since it was so close to my hotel, i decided to try it. Very good meal! Tapa-style plates to share but also larger sized meals possible. Excellent wine list. Took a few minutes to get our table (with reservation) but we were seated by the fireplace and drinks came immediately. We loved all our small plates, especially the fried chicken. only complaint was the hangar steak - it was very tough and more rare than medium. Service was fast and attentive. It was on the noisy side but we were lucky to be seated in a corner near the window so the noise level was not as intense and we were able to carry on a conversation. I would definitely go back.

Great meal but 5 dishes were brought out all together at the same time, so some of them were cold by the time we ate them
On other visits to the restaurant, a wait staff explained in detail what each dish was as it was served, this visit the name of the dish was only give

The best dishes we had were the burrata tortellini, Manila clams spaghetti, prosciutto pizza and potato wedges. But quite frankly, the prices were more on the pricier side and we definitely could get the same quality at other restaurants. The potato wedges were good but $12 for a few pieces of potatoes?! Other than that, the service was exceptional and they ambience was really nice.

This was my third visit to Nightingale. I was disappointed that the octopus was not available after my first visit - it was amazing! Also, I preferred the roasted cauliflower done as it was previously. The first two times we ate at Nightingale my husband and I thought the food was outstanding. This time, we thought it was good, but nothing was particularly notable.
That said, the service was excellent, the drinks were great, and the food was still very good. We were pleased with everything, just not "wowed" by any particular menu item.

Overall it was good- however it was very expensive considering the portion size and all we had was vegetables. Bill, including reasonable priced wine, for three people was $400! Would go again, however not a repeat offender high on my list considering can get equally good food for less in the area.
Liked the decor- found the clientele and servers very casual. Service was attentive and professional.
