    The bear restaurant I have been to in Vancouver, the Five Sails blew me away. I took my girlfriend there on her first trip to Vancouver and the incredible view of Coal Harbour, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Stanley Park, the mountains, and the ocean blew us both away. The food itself was incredible, with fresh B.C. Halibut satisfying our appetites, while the mouth watering appetizers included shrimp and carrot soup served in espresso cups. The dessert menu was truly artisan and we picked an apple strudel with pistachio ice cream. The wine was an aromatic zinfandel that really set the mood. As the sun set beyond the mountains we sat and talked, drinking wine and taking in the food while the service was so professional and non intrusive that we didn’t even feel their presence unless we needed them. They moved around us with precision of ballroom dancers while catering to all of our needs quickly but non intrusively. This provided for a truly beautiful romantic evening. On top of that the staff were able to fulfill a unique request of mine that was a romantic gesture to surprise my girlfriend, which she enjoyed profoundly. We had an incredible time at Five Sails Restaurant and I will definitely return. Gentlemen, if you are looking for a romantic evening with your lady, the Five Sails is the place to go.

    We went to Five Sails for date night on our last night visiting Vancouver and couldn’t have been more impressed. For starters the restaurant is located in the beautiful pan pacific hotel and the Oceans bar below them had live music which really set the tone. When we walked in the staff were friendly and courteous and took our coats and had us seated immediately in an intimate table for two overlooking the harbour. We couldn’t have been seated more than 2 minute when our waiter came and got our drink orders. He arrived back shortly with the five-sails mojitos we ordered and brought fresh sour dough. That set the tone for the rest of the night. Our waiter (wish I remembered his name) was attentive and friendly. Never had to ask for more water and plates were cleared as soon as we were done. Food came out quickly and was all incredibly delicious. Portion sizes aren’t large but are about average for what you’d expect at a fine dining establishment such as this. That said we definitely did t leave hungry. We both had the daily specials. My wife had the slow braised Veal Cheeks, and I had the Halibut with Lobster knuckles. The food was fantastic. Dessert was equally delicious and came out quickly. Overall we were very very happy with our experience and will be back for sure next time we’re back in Vancouver.

    500 dollars for 2 people I would hope to have beer selection more then 2 types. I like Heineken personally. I ended up drinking up sparkling water. My wife got to enjoy her champagne and red.

    Five Sails is an outstanding restaurant. The food is simply the best! My wife and I tried the Chefs tasting menu and wine tasting menu, and it did not disappoint. The flavors of each dish were exploding in our mouths! The wine pairings matched beautifully, and we discovered some new favorites. The entire experience was memorable and we look forward to the next special occasion that we can celibate at Five Sails.

    Their services was first-class, they made an effort in providing special accommodation for my girlfriend and I since it was our anniversary. The price was a bit on the expensive side for the food, but the services made it worth while. Unfortunately, there was some issue with our foods that sort of ruined the evening but overall the dining expereince was enjoyable.

    Me and my partner attended for an evening meal here visiting from Cheshire England, and it was astonishing, the servers were very attentive and informative making great recommendations, the caviar was delicious and beautifully presented, and for mains my partner had lamb and myself the braised wagyu beef which cut like butter, both meals outstanding. We ended the evening having there highly recommended soufflet, a waiting time of around 20 minutes and definately worth the wait. The server then brought out a small piece of the house chocolate opera slice with a small edible happy anniversary sign after finding out we'd just recently celebrated our first year together. The resturaunt location was beautiful, the service was incredible, the chefs did an incredible job and we look forward to our next visit to beautiful vancouver so we can dine at the five sails again.

    Very romantic and beautiful place to treat your spouse or lovers! Excellent view of North Vancouver and Lions Gate Bridge. This is not for big party because too much noise would ruin the ambiance of the restaurant. I took my wife there for Valentine's dinner and she really liked the place and food. They automatically added 18% on my bill for gratuities, maybe it was because of "Valentine's day"! We will go back again in the future!

    Food was fabulous and setting was nice. We waited, however, for 40 minutes before our waiter noticed that we hadn't been served bread, the amuse-bouche or our appetizers. He did comp one glass of wine, which was nice, but not worth the wait.

    Food was amazing! Lamb and beef were delicious and cooked perfectly! The tenderloin was mediocre partly due to the way it was cooked. It was cut too thin and resulted in being overlooked. The duck breast was very tender and juicy. The only flaw was the scallops. One of the scallops had a small piece of shell, which I think for a restaurant this level should not let this happen. I told the waiter and he didn’t do anything about it other than just a simple apology. Service was very slow. There was only one main waiter serving the whole dining area. We waited at least 15 min for the main course to be served. Because of this delay, we couldn’t have our dessert because they needed the table back by 7:30pm. Overall, great food but the service needs to be improved for sure!
