We went here for an anniversary dinner. We wanted a beautiful place to have a dinner that offered great service and Wonderful food. We could not have been happier with our choice. Amazing views were the added touch

The food was delicious. The service was not.....I found the waiters to be very pretentious. We had just come from a tour and we where dressed like typical tuorist. We did not have enough time to change into our evening wear. We were not dressed bad but we did not have cocktail clothing. It was very noticeable that our waiters had an impression that we did not have money. I would not recommend or go back even though the food was good.

Ahi Tuna Sashimi is very tasty. It is the most creative Tuna dish I have ever ate in the past 10 years after tried many Michelin restaurant in Paris, Hong Kong , Japan & USA. The embarrassed thing was they did not allow us to change the table to seat by window even no more guest was coming & two window tables were empty already before our dishes came.

If you are looking for something special in beautiful Vancouver, B.C. this is the place to book. We were lucky to have a beautiful evening, clear and sunny, the view was spectacular. From Stanley Park to the 2nd Narrows Bridge with the North Shore mountains standing out and iconic "Lions" mountains standing out! Boats coming and going, cruise ships going out to sea, this is as good as it gets in Vancouver. The restaurant is well appointed, we were lucky to score a window table, and the service and food matched the view. We will return on our next visit to Vancouver. No doubt about that.

Our favourite restaurant used to be (1968 to its final year) the William Tell. Now it is the Sails! The food is spectacular (as is the view) and consistently of the highest quality. Almost anyone can cook a piece of meat; few can produce the sauces that mark a great restaurant. The Sails is such a place.

Knowledgeable, professional and friendly waiters and servers. My wife and I came here for a special night out, I noted on our reservation that she was a vegetarian and when they brought us a free appetizer with chef's compliments they made sure that she got a vegetarian option. The ambiance is quiet and elegant, the view is great and the food is amazing. Best fish I've ever had (Dover Sole)
Great for a special occasion or just some fine dining.

Service was great. Food was absolutely wonderful.... so often underwhelmed by food and service quality at high end dining establishments. Except for a cruise ship which was late departing that day and partially block view, was great venue. Prices are high, but is rated as $$$$ so was expected. Order the best and you will not be disappointed.

Having been to Five Sails for a business function I couldn't wait to share with my husband. So with our anniversary coming up it was a natural choice. My husband is quite the foody and Five Sails did not disappoint. The food is to die for, the service was superb mmmmmmmm! Too bad about the cruise ship blocking our view but that just means we will have to return.

Five Sails was by far the best meal we had in Vancouver. It is a high end restaurant; they use the best local ingredients & fresh seafood. The preparation and presentation was as fine as any high end restaurant could be. Also, this restaurant is a few floors up in the Pan Pacific at Canada Place, overlooking the harbor which is great for a sunset dinner. Honestly, the food was so great I forgot about the view. Enjoy!

This is the second time in the last year or so I have been fortunate to dine at the Five Sails Restaurant. This second time was even better than the first. We were in town for a concert and thoroughly enjoyed our evening starting with the meal at Five Sails. The service, ambience wine list etc. - just first rate. I would recommend to anyone.

The perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. We had the chef's tasting menu and were not disappointed. The food & wine were amazing (highly recommend the scallops), the view stunning and the staff super friendly, professional & accommodating.

Five Sails Restaurant made sure to acknowledge the special occasion that we were there for, even offered a small but complimentary dessert to help us celebrate it, which was a very nice touch. Window seat allowed us to enjoy the beautiful view. While the food is expensive, it is certainly well worth it -- though if it wasn't for a special occasion we wouldn't be able to justify the cost. There were so many items on the menu I would have liked to try, but I guess I will have to wait for my next visit (whenever that will be!). I highly recommend the ahi tuna tartare for appetizer and the duck breast for entree. Everything on the dessert menu seems way overpriced ($6.00 for a small cup of cappucino!). Our server was very well put together and very polite, though he didn't seem to want to converse with us too much.

This is a beautiful restaurant with one of the most amazing views in Vancouver. Unfortunately the food quality was not what we expected for the prices we paid. The manager was quick to try to address by offering a different meal and made a fuss over my partner's birthday when dessert was served - so I do appreciate that. I might try this restaurant again in the future - because the view is spectacular and perhaps we were there on an off night.

We both had the seafood medley which included large scallops and a lobster claw and tail, served in sauce probably containing lemon grass and kaffir lemon leaves. I thought the sauce was a bit strong for the lobster, although it certainly was delicious. The view was great, but ask for a table on the shady side if you go for dinner, otherwise the setting sun will get in your eyes and you will have to have the view blocked by the blind.
