Five Sails Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
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.
It was our first visit to Five Sails and we were very impressed. They treated us amazingly and as it was a anniversary they went out of their way to make it special. The people were fantastic and the food was one of the best meals that I have ever had, not one thing didn't taste incredible.
I would totally recommend this for a romantic evening.
I spent a beautiful Sunday dinner with my partner for my birthday and I'm so glad that we picked the right restaurant. Beautiful view, clean & modern look, kind staff and very tasty food. Not too crowded but definitely not empty either. Would recommended it for any special occasion or just casual dining.
One of our favourite restaurants that consistently delivers. Gerry, Chef Ernst and their very capable team make sure every little detail is there. I love knowing that Dover sole is available year round and the 3-course seasonal alternative is always enticing. My guests enjoyed the 3-course and stated that they have not had salmon that tender. The plating and presentation is beautiful whether it's the appetizers, full entrees or the Prix-Fixe. Great wine list as well.
Five sails was simply outstanding - the service was very personal and friendly and the views spectacular.
The scallops were the perfect entree and others had the lobster bisque and the quail which were both amazing
The venison was beautiful as was the beef and the wine list was exceptional too
It was a fabulous last meal in Vancouver before returning to Australia
The reviews I read were all very good, but our experience was probably even better. The seafood we had was excellent, even the steaks were good--the best we had in Vancouver. Can't beat the location and the staff was very accommodating. Expect to pay a lot for wine.
We were visiting Vancouver from the Seattle area and wanted to take in the local favorites. Five Sails had great reviews on line so it was our choice for a Birthday dinner on Saturday night. The staff was extremely warm and friendly and the food was fantastic. We started with Ahi Tuna Tartare and the “SCHLUTZKRAPFEN” Austrian-Style Ravioli then moved onto the Rack of Lamb. The flavors of each dish were fantastic! And if the food wasn't enough then the view made it even more spectacular, with a beautiful view of the water. I would highly recommend Five Sails to anyone!
Our hostess was nice and offered us a coat check. At the table, the server was attentive at first and the after we ordered our wine, the attentiveness went south. The server could not answer the wine question and had to ask. We waited and she finally came back with the answer and took our order. I cannot believe that a place that serves food at this prices will not even have pepper at the table. The shaker were empty and we had to wait 5-7 minutes before we could flag down a server to get some. Rather than apologizing for the missing pepper, we get a response of "Oh!" from a different server. We tried to flag down our main server when we needed pepper, but she was too busy helping other and we felt ignored. The manager of the restaurant asked us about our experience and food. That was a nice touch.
We had the seafood plater for the appetizer which was amazing in taste and preparation. The seafood was very fresh and delicious. We had a bottle of white wine. We went with the prefix menu and all the courses of food was great.
