Five Sails Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Worth every star and every dollar. Best meal I have every had. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Chef's tasting menu.
In Vancouver for one night to end our trip so wanted somewhere nice and preferably with a view. Five Sails has a great view, fantastic food and lovely staff.
Gerry, the Owner was in charge of the reception. Exceptional service and whenever i book for a table, I always get the best. The food was prepared well and the service was impeccable.
My choice of fine dining.
I would go to the Tea House or Le Crocodile. Yes, I would go to the Tea House or LeCrocodile
Went for a Birthday! Great service. Food was good in general. Older Reno
The service was amazing. The ambiance, the closeup view of Vancouver’s harbour, Stanley Park and the North Shore mountains is unrivalled in Vancouver. The wine list was fabulous. The food, although portions were elegantly small and artistically displayed was delicious. It was old world elegance personified.
very friendly staff member, we celebrate our birthday there very year, get to know the same staff members with great welcome when arrive. Good food and pairing wine, great waterfront view. Friendly service.
The food is consistently of high quality over several years of visits. From land to sea, the entrees are delicious, well balanced and satisfying. Save a little room for dessert, as these are some of the best in the city. We've been ho-hum about dessert lately (too sweet, too trendy, just okay) and Five Sails had us wanting to lick our plates!
Good food, good service, but unjustifiably overpriced
We were somewhat disappointed considering the ratings. The food was very good but the delivery to the table disppointed. We waited very long for the main dishes and 2 of the 3 - both meat dishes, arrived relatively cold. Bit of a comedown. The interior looks corporate and dated, probably what you should expect in a convention centre. The service was ok-ish buy nothing special
Great view, service and food. The only hitch was that one of a trio of appetizers - the ceviche - didn't have any flavor. To the restaurant's credit, after we brought that to their attention, they brought us a second one that was much better! Low key but friendly and professional service.
The food is good. The view is terrific. And the service is on another level compared to anything else I've experienced in the city. They keep a book of all their repeat guests and will remember you, your food preferences, any allergies or sensitivities, significant events. It's an amazing feeling to be treated this way.
Five sails is not cheap, but this is classic fine dining in every way. If you were looking for a place to take your picky parents or in-laws, or wow the socks off an out-of-town guest or potential business partner, this is the place to do it.
And both their seafood and non-seafood dishes, while not particularly daring, are always perfectly executed.
Excellent food, cooked perfectly
Always and remains one of Vancouver's best... continuing the Five Sales standard of excellence
Wonderful food and great service, as usual! We try to dine there at least three times a year, and Gerry Sayers makes us feel like family. A wonderful view makes it a treat for out of town guests, and Chef Dorfler’s food outshines even the appeal of the view.
Very well prepared and delicious food. Great service
THIS IS THE SECOND TIME WE HAVE CELEBRATED OUR ANNIVERSARY AT FIVE SAILS AND LOVED IT BOTH TIMES.
Our dining experience was one of the finest of a life time. The wine, the entrees and the service would be difficult to improve upon and our guests were delighted.
Thank you for a quality experience.
The service was exceptional by all staff at Five Sails, we were not rushed, yet the food arrived at a very appropriate time during our evening outing - not too long, not too short. Also, the food was delicious and there were some small 'extras' like the white asparagus soup that was a pleasant surprise. The view from the windows is lovely, the room was just the right temperature and the atmosphere was totally relaxing.
My wife's 50th birthday and we couldn't have picked a better venue for the two of us to enjoy special food with great service and a great outlook over the harbour. Thoroughly recommended and perhaps end-2-end one of our best dining experiences
Five star fine dining! We had an amazing night here at Five Sails. We requested a window table which we were given so we had a beautiful view of the harbour lights. The service received was second to none and the food was exquisite. The wine waiter helped us make a really nice choice on the wines and to top everything off, the restaurant surprised us with a "happy anniversary" complimentary dessert which was fantastic. It is not an inexpensive meal, but we believed we received excellent value for money considering the extremely high standard of all aspects of our dinner. Thanks for helping us celebrate our anniversary in style.
Great food, spectacular service and a nice view of the harbor. Thank you for the enjoyable experience
Amazing food and service. I had the filet and my wife the sablefish. Both were so delicious.
Menu presentation liked a fast food restaurant. The food items on the tasting menu were not impressive. Some table services were on request. Overall, pricey but not worth it. The best is the coat check in service at the reception.
Very nice view, great service and delicious food. Thanks for the special arrangement. Definitely will come again.
Scallops were amazing. Lamb awesome. Service was great. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and they gave us a cute little cake and candle. All the staff came over separately and quietly said happy birthday. Which was good as he doesn’t like a fuss
The owner Gerry made us feel
Welcome and the staff treated us amazing! The food was beyond incredible and would love to come back!
From the warm and personable welcome to the fine cocktails and wine and food - was a lovely evening. Ambience was relaxing, striking night view, and wasn't loud.
Beautifully presented, delectably delicious, impeccable service.
Excellent ambience and service. Stunning sunset and brilliant night view of Vancouver harbor and Canada Place. Wonderful food and amazing service from both the chef, waiters, and hostesses.
We went to Five Sails to celebrate our anniversary and the food/service were impeccable. Started the meal with the TRIO OF WARM & CHILLED SEAFOOD. Mains consisted of HONEY GLAZED SMOKED DUCK BREAST and ROAST MILK FED VEAL TENDERLOIN WRAPPED IN PANCETTA. The dinner finished off with luxe lemon mille-feuilles. All 3 courses were outstanding. We will definitely try to make it back there again.
Food was great, my firmed and I are very new rock fine dining but the staff is very helpful with the menu and explaining the menu items. The food is full of flavour and I would recommend this to anybody wanting to try fine dining and Delicious meals.
A Sunday night. Quiet, comfortable, intimate. The service was fantastic, and the food was delicious.
It was an exceptional experience. Staff are very professional and friendly. Overall experience was great except the wait time was a bit long between the dishes.
Five Sails is one of the best restaurants have had ever been to in vancouver. It's classy with amazing food and great service. I would definitely come back again.
And best view in Vancouver. Food was cooked to perfection.
Fantastic service, wonderful view, and delicious food. A very nice, elegant, white table-cloth dining experience.
Chef Tasting Menu
Worth every penny. We paired it with the recommended wines, superb!
I have attached the menu and wine list as well as photos of the appetizer.
Chef cared for guest shellfish allergy by providing substitutions for both shellfish items.
Great venue and wonderful staff, but only thing that bothered me was that we brought outside coffee and was asked to have it put in a cup. Instead I drank the rest of mine and my girlfriend didn't feel comfortable and she left hers.
Overall great food, great view of the water. Very pleasant atmosphere.
We came here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. They took special care to note allergy restrictions beforehand and ensure we were taken care of throughout the night. Coming here never disappoints and food is phenomenal paired with the scenic views.
