Five Sails Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Amazing is the best word for this special restaurant! The couple who run this restaurant obviously have a passion for food and service as I would rate both an A+! From the amuse bouche all the way through dessert, the four of us oooh'ed and aaaah'ed over evry morsel. Highly recommend!
Great wait staff, very friendly and professional. Beautiful view. Had out best photos of the year taken by our waitress. She really knows how to take great photos with an iPhone. The food tasted great and cooked to perfection. I would recommend Five Sails for someone wanting to celebrate a special occasion.
A foody vacation in Vancouver took us to five of the city's top restaurants: Market, Bishop's, Five Sails, Blue Water Cafe and Hawksworth. All were exceptional dining experiences, but here is how they broke down: The longstanding icon of the culinary scene, Bishop's, topped the charts with the most personable and attentive service and with incredible flavor profiles. From appetizers through dessert every course was memorable. Five Sails and Market were close behind. Few restaurants in any city can top Five Sails amazing harbor view, but the food was also beautifully presented and well prepared. We can recommend the tuna and beef tartares, the chilled seafood appetizers, the sea bass and the Catch. Market provided the most knowledgeable services with enticing descriptions of the food backed up with a deep understanding of the wines and the ingredients. The food was also strong; we especially enjoyed the pea soup, the octopus, and the sable fish. Blue Water boasted the best seafood and certainly lived up to its reputation with delectable ceviche, crustaceans, sable fish, halibut and more. Hawksworth was the clear winner on the cocktail scene with its many inventive offerings, but the food was disappointing on this occasion with both the halibut and duck overcooked. One could not go wrong with any of these restaurants and they certainly confirm that Vancouver is a city with magnificent dining experiences.
Great experience at the restaurant and the service was excellent. I love the foie gras, aaa beef tartare and lobster soup. The main course I ordered the halibut which was really delicious. Definitely a good place for special occasion.
My family came to visit me for graduation and I took them to this restaurant cos they love seafood and ocean view. The restaurant provided super good services and my family feel very comfortable and great for their experiences and times during our dinner.
1. When arriving earlier than the reservation and there's space, don't make your guests wait for no reason.
2. When request a gluten free meal, it should be complemented with a gluten free bread. Comes frozen, easily stored but goes a long way to your guests.
3. Get your coffee right but hot...
4. Good chef good food!
5. Staff tries hard.
This has been the second time my fiancée and I have been here together and both times we've left feeling content and completely satisfied. The food is delicious, and the service is great. The staff at Five Sails always make you feel welcome and are very knowledgeable in what they offer. The special little anniversary cake that we've gotten on both our visits is always a welcomed surprise.
Will definitely be coming back, over and over again.
The food and wine was truly outstanding from start to finish. Appetizer was tuna tartare. What an amazing combination of flavours. The fish was clearly super high quality. The flavours would explode in your mouth. Mains were daily catch, salmon and the Pacific halibut. All the mains were truly outstanding. Very tender and fresh flavours. The sauces were a perfect match. The suggested wine was a perfect match. The service was excellent. They went out of their way to help with pictures as well. Needless to say, the views are amazing.
