Ebisu on Robson Ratings and Reviews
Very good food and very good cocktails. Overall it's worth it. Make sure to book in advance as wait times might be long in the evenings. Vibe is ok but a bit too noisy at times but I guess that's ok too. Our server was very friendly and welcoming.
Thought it was dine out but it starts today, the receptionist kept saying no for everything, she seemed no patient for us,soy sauce bottle was empty we had to ask twice to get a new one
Good food and service.
Incredibly great restaurant. Tasty food, discreet service, reasonably priced. It was a lucky find to spend the New Year's eve while visiting Vancouver.
A little noisy and a few drunk patrons seated nearby took away from our experience. Food was good but not exceptional. Service was very good and very attentive. Menu offered has something for everyone but seemed a bit generic compared to some other places in Vancouver. Execution below par from the best in town.
Server kept forgetting to bring my drink. Which I asked for two times before I finally got it half an hour later. I understand it gets busy but I’m a server too and this was just stupid. It was my
Birthday as well and everyone struggled getting any attention for any service. I understand big groups can get annoying but half an hour waiting for a drink? I only drank two because who knows how much longer it would take. We didn’t stay too long. Thank you anyways I will most likely be doing my bday elsewhere
Solid, but not necessarily what I expected. Its sort of a commercialized Japanese place with lots of non-Japanese food on the menu like truffled fries. Strange, but generally pretty tasty.
Food was really good; sushi was fresh and tasty. Service was courteous. Would totally go again and recommend to others.
It took an hour to get our sashimi/fresh seafood.
Checked with the server 30 minutes after ordering, and was told that it would take another half an hour. Did not come until we we're practically done with our whole night. Very disappointing. What was supposed to be a great surprise birthday dinner, turned out to be a waiting game for food. I'm really sorry to say this, but it has been an unsatisfactory experience. Will not be recommending this place to anyone.
Took a shot at this place after reading some positive reviews. We were meeting some family that were in from out of town and staying close by and we all wanted Sushi. Great interior and we had a great big booth which everyone fit perfectly. The interior is a funny mix of 'traditional' sushi restaurant mixed with a sports bar!! (huge TV's all around the place!) Service was great and we got several platters of various sushi, sashimi, and a few deep fried options..all very very fresh and tasty! Drinks were served promptly and effectively. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to go back!
I really liked the lunch special here. You pick 3 items for approx $12 (can't remember price). But the food was very tasty and tea was refilled often. The only thing I didn't like were the bones I found in my spicy tuna roll. However, the spicy salmon roll and spicy mini ramen were delicious.
Waitress spilled liquor all over my purse and then rolled her eyes when I asked her to get me a wet cloth to wipe it with.
Their food tasted amazing .. overall the best Japanese cuisine I have had in a long time .
Had a group-dinner there not too long ago. Food and drinks were great at its price but the one thing that set us all of was the poor service that we were given; the waiter we had expressed a negative attitude throughout our stay which made our visit slightly unsettling.
Terrible service. Sub par food. Nice outdoor seating. Great reservation app though.
Nice food. Good service.
Place is a bit lost. Signs are sun bleached, menu is hard to understand, items are all over.
Place needs to be cleaned up, renovated a bit. New menu and all items should be reorganized.
It could be a very busy place if they made some changes.
Service was great. We were a large group of about 20 people but everything was brought to table in timely manner. Food was good. Nice to have a place that can take a reservation for and accommodate a large group.
Not the greatest sushi or ambiance
Been over a year since I came. Got seated at a table next to the front door. Table top wasn't secure. Spun when leaned on. Table was covered in crumbs. 2/4 plates on the table had residue on it.
Food was good. But the table definitely wasn't.
We were pushed into a corner behind some chairs that were stacked up. The service was very poor and it took a long time to get our food.
It was a family gathering with out of town in-laws visiting us. We were interested to go for sushi at a place recommended on yelp, thinking the location would bring it up a notch.
2 of us got the seafood platter for 62$ and we thought it was overpriced for what was included, however the shrimp and other items were very good, we just thought 62 was quite much for what we got there.
Their ginger unfortunately had gluten somehow, and so I didn’t get that with my sushi but I had to ask where the ginger was before she explained why I didn’t have any, would have been better to be told right away but better that she didn’t give me any at all, I was just confused as to why. Other places don’t have gluten in their ginger. My rolls were fine, something I can get of equal quality at less expensive places.
The service was okay - great for some things but not great in other areas, like I mentioned above about my missing ginger. The staff was genuinely kind and caring and nice, I was well cared for in terms of my allergies. I was given gluten free soy sauce which was appreciated. They did forget my sesame seeds on my rolls and forgot my husbands’ rolls until we asked where they were, and he was a bit grumpy as he was left still hungry while everyone else was still full and he waited for them, so we waited while he ate alone.
It wasn’t spectacular, but it was just normal, not the experience we expected for such good yelp ratings. We understand the cost is due to excellent location in Vancouver, so naturally more expensive area.
We don’t regret going but not sure we’ll be back again. It was incredibly loud and we had to shout to speak to each other.
I would definitely recommend Ebisu and this service and app! Awesome experience with family and friends!
We sat at the patio facing Robson street. This spot in the restaurant is highly recommended.
The sashimi and rolls tasted fresh and delicious.
After one pitcher of tasty red sangria, we were informed of the blue sangria which was also tasty - it is very tropical and has a coconut taste.
It was a very lovely place. Usually known for being busy but if you go later you get good meal deals and able to get a seat. I do recommend booking ahead so you know you got a table.
The food was delicious but took a while, to be expected. Has a wide range of everything and big portion sizes. Along with, staff was amazing as we had two allergies present (peanut and duck) so they kept us informed and were alert.
Went with my boyfriend and his family, and they had a big enough spot for all 4 of us with extra room. So I do recommend it for medium sized groups 4-7.
We greatly enjoyed our appetizers of magic beans and truffle fries were delicious and a treat for a family that rarely eats fried foods. Sadly, the sushi itself did not measure up. It was decent, just not amazing. If we lived near one of the locations, we would give it another chance. Maybe next time we are in Vancouver.
The service was very slow. We need to follow-up a couple of times for our orders.
Overall was ok :)
Great service, the food was really good. Love the variety of drinks. Perfect for birthdays. All in all, it was a great time.
The staff enforced a 2 hour time limit on our table, while they did not mention it at all when we arrived or sat down.
Vast array of food choices. Good food.
Pretty good but the food was ok
Very very slow service, food took an hour to come. Some of us got our dishes way before others, like a half hour apart. Some of us finished while other friends were still starving!
Good quality food, very informal, no sushi,
Food was fine， but service was slow
We had our 2 kids with us during busy dinner and service was excellent
Great service. Foods were served to us in a fair amount of time. Price is just right.
Food was OK, but it took over an hour for food to arrive. Everyone else had well finished eating by then.
The reviews looked good so we thought we would give it a try and when we arrived there were a dozen people waiting for tables. When it was my turn to talk to the hostess I mentioned I had an open table reservation and we were seated almost immediately. The sushi was good, we tried several house specialties and sadly had no room for the enticing deserts. We would go again and will recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Wonderful food, atmosphere and service! One of our favourite places to go.
Service was pretty bad when we went there.. our reservation time was not respected... our waiter didn't have time to explain dishes, some of the people that brought our food were rude.. worst experience dining in Vancouver...
