Five Sails Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

We started with a beet salad with goat cheese. Ordinarily I am not wild about beets or goat cheese. The beets were lightly pickled and the goat cheese tasted smoked and very mild. It was just delicious. The main course was the sablefish and was prepared perfectly and was served with vegetables that were not over cooked. The service was very efficient. I recommend Five Sails for seafood.

It was my boyfriend's birthday and I took him out to this restaurant. It was by far, the most luxurious and high-end restaurant we have ever been to in Vancouver. From the beginning, we were greeted and seated by the window that overlooks Waterfront and the city lights. All the servers and chefs there wished my boyfriend a Happy Birthday which made him feel special. They even remember that I was a vegetarian as I had told him over the phone when booking the reservation. The vegetarian menu is amazing and I especially loved the white asparagus soup which I wouldn't have ordered myself either, but was given a sample to try by the chef. They also bought out a complimentary layered chocolate cake after dessert for my boyfriend and the cake also had a small chocolate plaque saying Happy Birthday! Overall, an amazing place to try in downtown Vancouver. It is a very high-end, expensive restaurant but for special occasions the price is definitely worth it!

All I can say is, "Wow!" It's been three days and I'm already craving this delicious food! Too bad they aren't in the states. The ambiance, the views, the staff, and the food are all outstanding! As you walk into this beautiful restaurant you are greeted by the Maite r'd, who is also the owner and chef's wife. What a nice lady! So accommodating and friendly. The hostess (also friendly) seats you at your table and you are awestruck at the beautiful views of Vancouver Harbor. We got there in time to enjoy the views by light, watch a few floatplanes land and takeoff, and observe the city growing dark and all the lights popping on for a romantic sight. Then the food begins and you are seriously lost in your own world. It's just you and your food. Mmmm! My mouth is watering just thinking about the delicious tastes. It was seriously like a circus in my mouth. And if this makes it sound all fancy and romantic and only a place for couples, well, it is, but it's also accommodating to kids - if they can appreciate the quality of the food. Great staff, extremely friendly and helpful servers, and an awesome chef!!! So glad we chose this place over all others!

This is the first time that I am disappoint with a recommendation from Open Table
Service at the restaurant is very poor
The food is nothing spectacular, is a little above average
It looks that this restaurant had better times, decoration is depressing, this restaurant is still in the 50s or at the most the 60s
Furniture is a disaster
I will never go back and I will never recommend to anybody

The restaurant is in a great location, the food is excellent, keep in mind this is considered fine dining so the portions are not large. If you can, I would recommend a table along the windows facing Coal Harbour/Burrard Inlet.

Dinner with my wife on a Saturday night in September. The view is to die for. Recommend reservations and early arrival to be sure of a window table. We enjoyed a cold seafood appetizer platter for two ---clams, oysters salmon etc. Main courses of chicken and beef were excellent. Souffle for desert was fine though it would have been better if we knew it was an option so we could have ordered in advance and avoided a long wait. But it was worth it! Will dine here again if in Vancouver.

Everything about the restaurant was exceptional.
The only negative was that the email confirmation from Open Table linked to the wrong location and since we'd walked in the rain from our hotel, that was a bit annoying. NOT the fault of Five Sails, however.

Food was good but not superb. Appertizer goat cheese was incredible. Trout, local flare, was overcomes and dry. Dessert was great. My wife had the Thai curry veggie platter which was good not great. I used her Thai curry sauce to moisten my trout. Glad I wasn't dining alone.

I really enjoyed our meal. The food was worth the cost, the service was the best I've had and the view was spectacular. Seafood is difficult to cook properly and everything from the huge scallops to the lobster to the salmon was done to perfection. The fresh blueberry dessert was also fantastic. The chef sent over a small tasting at no additional charge which made us feel special and also elevated the meal to an even more memorable experience.
I enjoyed watching helicopters and float planes landing during the meal. The view is just great.
The menu asks that you refrain from taking out your phone to take pictures. While I understand wanting the ambience to be preserved I was disappointed to not have a photo to remember the occasion/view.
I was surprised at the end of the meal that they could not validate my parking stub because the restaurant is not connected to the restaurant. We parked using the hotel vallet and were then worried how steep parking was going to run. We were happy to learn that it only ended up being $18 plus tip. Which I think was reasonable.

Our food was divine, the service charming and upbeat. The ambiance is very restful and easy on the eye. You can hear each other talk! What a relief.
This is one of Vancouver's top restaurants. We love it and know you will too.
