Five Sails Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
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.
From start to finish our experience was spectacular. Hosts were pleasant, our table outstanding, service even better. The menu had many options and both our appetizers, mains and desserts were beyond expectations. The signature dessert- grand marnier soufflé is worth the wait
Went to Five Sails Restaurant for the first time in our 2 year anniversary. Both me and my girlfriend ordered the 3 course seasonal menu. We had squash soup with pumpkin seed for the appetizer, then then we had slow poached salmon with whipped potatoes for the main course, and finally we had lemon curd tarte for our dessert. The waiter was aware of our anniversary and gave us a nice little chocolate mouse with candles on top just before we left. Overall the dining experience was excellent, and I would definitely recommend anyone to try at Five Sails who wants to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, or just have a fun time with a nice meal.
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.
