Five Sails Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We've been here before several times and enjoyed the food and service here. However, it was very different this time round.
We ordered Lobster bisque and foie gras to start. Bisque is probably one of the best ones in Vancouver.
Entree - In our party, we ordered Lamb Rack, Venison, Duck Breast and Sable Fish. It took 30 minutes for the entrees to arrive. First the fish...both of my friends tried the fish, and the sauce was way too salty. And the mushrooms were too. It was way too salty to have a second bite. My friends sent their dishes back. Manager came to apologize, like any restaurant would do. However, we were expecting a little bit more responsiveness from a restaurant as such. Manager offer my friends the sea bass. It was clear from their contemplation that they didn't want to substitute with the sea bass but he stood there without offering another option. In the end, both my friends decided not to order any entree. It was to my surprise that the manager was not able to resolve the issue by asking a few more questions to address the needs of my friends. He could've offered the same fish with a different sauce or grilled veggies instead of mushrooms! It will for sure look very bad on an high end restaurant if they tell their circle of influence "we left hungry". We were just looking for a bit more from the manager.
I had the duck breast and my boyfriend had the venison. I've had duck breast at Five Sails before and i loved it so much that I had to order it again this time. The plating has changed. This time, much more busy. There were 6-7 different components to my dish. The duck was cooked to order. Flavour of the Puree was just right. But with so many components on such a small plate, it was difficult to taste everything. My palette was bombarded with too many flavors at once. The venison plate was similar. Too much noise.
Overall, i think food and service has just declined in just a few months span. Hope to see an improvement.
My boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary here. They treated us well from the start - hostess hanging up our coats and getting our table set up. Our waiter was also quite professional and they gave us a complimentary mini appetizer and dessert. Their service made our special occasion even better! Would definitely come back again.
Went here for a special celebration. Our lasting impression was that when the waitress noticed my signifant other and I weren't big spenders compared to the other patrons we completely lost her attention. We had to flag the bussers and other waiters for assistance multiple times. Oir original waitress only engaged eith us to deliver the check. They provided fine service (after about 40 minutes) but it was inconsistent, and seemed like a recovery effort by that point.
Disappointing overall because of the price and the praise. The food is really delicious, but the service we experienced could have been outmatched at a similar restaurant.
Great service with a well balanced atmosphere . Me and my girlfriend was in the private room area. We both had the chefs choice 6 course meal and it was a great sample of what the chef chooses as their top dish. Will come again - great service with great food!
The menu had lots of variety and was very much to our liking. There were 7 of us for a business dinner and everyone left very satisfied! Highly recommended. Portion sizes were respectable. It is quite pricy, but the food and service is top notch, and the ambiance is indeed impressive. Easily in the same class as Hawksworth, Chambar, Blue Water Cafe, and our recent favourite Cioppino's. we will return soon.
Went there for New Years dinner. The food was great and worth the $110 set menu price. 3 appetizers, one main, dessert, then coffee with chocolate and cookies. Got to watch the fireworks from the restaurant which was a bonus. Highly recommended. Great experience. Good job five sails!
Five Sails offers a luxury experience, but without feeling stuffy. Delicious meal, excellent service - and what a view! My partner is allergic to soy, so the kitchen happily subbed out the offending course from the tasting menu.
Not cheap, but the experience was well worth it. The staff was warm and knowledgeable.
