Service was excellent. Rigatoni was nothing special. Lamp chops cooked beautifully with a delicious char on them. Could hardly taste the mint. Would prefer that mint was more pronounced. Pickled beets delicious and summer salad refreshing.

The restaurant was extremely cold, we asked 2 different waiters if they could turn down the AC a bit but nothing happened. We were literally shivering! We skipped dessert and went elsewhere for a more pleasant experience.
The table beside us was also complaining about the temperature.

They say small plates, however, they are really small so keep that in mind when ordering. Very, very noisy restaurant. Adding some sounding dampening panelling would be a great improvement. Good food, however, it is the kind of place you good to once in awhile only.

The food was really tasty and I am glad I visited, but unfortunately I was unable to try some of the dishes I would've like due to having a nut allergy. Many dishes contained nuts in a small way, such as an almond dressing, and even though I asked to have the dressing on the side, I was told this was not possible because the restaurant do not modify their menu in any way. I was disappointed at this response, as I was not just been fussy and could have enjoyed some dishes with a very small adjustment. Although the restaurant has a buzzy atmosphere, I did find it quite impersonal and personally prefer more intimate spaces.

Their menu changed so some of my favourite dishes were not available anymore. However, we still had a good selection to choose from. It was a busy lunchtime so the server was trying hard to be attentive as much as possible.

I have heard so many good things about Nightingale I knew I had to go give them a try. When I was in charge of choosing a restaurant for our double date before catching Les Miserables at QE Theatre, I took the chance and made a reservation!

We happened to have our reservation in time for happy house and so we ordered the margherita pizza (the crust was so good!), buttermilk fried chicken (absolutely delicious, super crunchy, chicken was still moist and the maple syrup glaze was a nice touch), potato wedges (had a good crunch to it), and roasted zucchini with olives and a bit of spice.

From the regular menu we also ordered the pizza with prosciutto/gorgonzola/arugula (they really do have amazing pizzas!), as well as a perfectly medium rare hanger steak with a surprisingly delicious horseradish mixture.

Six items for the four of us was plenty, we could have even ordered one less dish, but it was a fun approach to have dishes meant to be shared. By the end of our meal, all of us had thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience - from the innovative yet absolutely delicious way that our meals were prepared, to the attentive and friendly waiters who kept our evening fun.

Definitely planning to come back for another visit some time soon!

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!
