Dinner: Daily: 5:00pm - 11:00pm
Once upstairs, the food, service and atmosphere were absolutely phenomenal. The shared plate experience was incredible. Our server was extremely helpful and made our first visit nearly perfect. We would go back in a heartbeat because of the upstairs experience.
However, we arrived early and while waiting for our reservation we sat at the bar and was "greeted" by quite possibly the most unfriendly un-welcoming server. She never said a word to us, smiled or even acknowledged our presence. If it wasn't for a friends recommendation and great reviews, we would have walked out. We don't ask for much when we go to a restaurant but maybe a fake smile and a hello would suffice. The other bartenders were good, host was great, but this one person almost ruined our experience. Hopefully a one off.
We booked for our anniversary and were pleasantly surprised that the staff acknowledged the occasion verbally and with a candle in the dessert at the end of the meal. The food was excellent especially the charred arctic char and roasted brussel sprouts. We will definitely be back.
Waitress rushed us. We had a reservation at 5pm. At 5:10 ordered drinks. Bought $110 bottle of wine. Pressured via multiple visits by waitress to order food. 5:20 ordered several items of food. I said we may order more food thereafter. Waitress made a show of checking her tablet to see how long we had, then sternly telling us we would need to be out by 7:15. Very welcoming. No notice of this on booking. We had almost 2 hours to go when we mentioned we may order more, and had the waitress inform us we might not be allowed to. Odd behaviour. Never happened to me before ... anywhere. Ate quickly, paid over $200 for our meal, and left. Still a number of empty tables when we hustled out. Will never return.
Great flavours and very satisfying. The service was impeccable.
Loved the Brussels sprouts, squash and meatballs. Disappointed with the soggy crust pizza.
Amazing meal as always. Nearly every dish is great, especially the beets and fried chicken.
Will definitely be back soon
Service was a bit quick but otherwise great restaurant. Would go again
It was friend’s first time there. She enjoyed the food, the environment and the service. She was impressed.
We ordered a pizza dish. It took almost one hour to arrive and no one informed us until we had to ask the waiters 2 times about if the dish is still coming. My friend was running late for his meeting and he had to rush to leave. We are disappointed with this lunch.
Gem of a place in the heart of Downtown Vancouver! Great atmosphere and delicious food. A foodie must!
Excellent and friendly service, delicious food, great ambiance. Will definitely be back.
We've had very good experiences here in the past, but not this time. Staff weren't very knowledgeable about the dishes, waited to remove dishes before we were finished, and the bartender was almost rude while we waited. We also couldn't sit upstairs, and don't enjoy the atmosphere on the first floor; it's almost like a different restaurant on the main level.
Really delicious, beautifully presented food. Someone in the kitchen has a way with fall vegetables, not to mention little charred lamb chops, spiced olives, desserts... One of the bartenders is an expert on whiskeys. She had just returned from a trip through Scotland and Ireland, and graciously gave my husband an outstanding overview of smoky Scotch whiskeys after we enjoyed our after-dinner drinks. Comfortable and attractive space (we sat downstairs; will also try upstairs). Worth persevering for a reservation.
Everything was really fantastic. The service was great, the cocktail list was creative. All the food was right on. Would definitely go back if I was ever in Vancouver again.
Fantastic experience 10/10
Had a great lunch and afternoon visit with my friend whom I haven’t seen for a long time. She’s vegetarian and I am an adventurous foodie. It was very easy to find dishes to share that we both enjoyed.
Great meal experience.
The menu is so vast and filled with delicious items that it’s hard to choose what to order since you want everything! And they switch their menu up seasonably which I love. I like going with larger groups than 2 so we can try more things to share. I love the ambience and the servers were lovely and attentive!
We loved everything except found the salad very ordinary.
Prefer to be seated upstairs, but it was not open on Sat. Service was slow. Food was tasty.
Great restaurant. The food was really good and the service was perfect. My only issue was the noise level was very loud.
It was amazing
We were there for my birthday celebration. Wonderful food, great atmosphere. Could have not been better.
It was absolutely amazing !!! Loved it !! Great food,service and ambience! It’s a win all around :)
Ordered Manila clam spaghetti. The most chewy bundle of cheesy mess came after waiting for 30 mins in an almost empty restaurant. It was like eating rubber bands. Waitress took it off the bill. Food was very disappointing and over priced. Waitress was very pushy and invasive the whole time. Kept asking if we wanted drinks other than water and coffee. Kept coming to confirm that’s all we wanted and we didn’t want alcohol. It was for Sunday brunch! There was no wine classes to clear away so she was just being rude and pushy. It was not a good meal. Was our first time and will never come back. We picked it after seeing all the rave reviews on the restaurant. Should have gone elsewhere
Good looking restaurant with interesting menu and open late enough to dine after 10 ( rare in Vancouver). Food was very good with two small quibbles - pizza was on the cold side and the sweet potatoes had a bit too much garnish and not quite enough potato
This restaurant is incredible! We just love everything about it - the service is amazing, the food is out of this world delicious and the atmosphere is just gorgeous! Love the location as well:)
Loved everything - knowledgeable staff, fresh flavours, beautiful decor. Very impressed!
Overall the food was good.
The waitress assigned to our party however was a little rude and changed the mood.
At first i thought it was me but my guests also noticed the responses to my questions.
I personally wouldnt return to this restaurant but i would still recommend it to others for the food.
I love Nightingale! The service is impeccable, the food amazing and the atmosphere is fun. Not a quiet romantic dinner place though. More of a place to go with a good table full of people so that you can try numberous share plates. I wanted to order one of everything but there were only two of us!
The server was okay - definitely not great. The lamb chops were not as good as we expected them to be. The server was not concerned when we told her we had enjoyed everything except the lamb chops. For the price, it was not an unforgettable experience. It won't be on my "must go again" list.
Wonderful and friendly service, great food as always!
Excellent food, great drinks, awesome service. I’d recommend to anyone who wants a authentic Vancouver experience.
Absolutely amazing food in a beautiful setting.. casual, cozy but elegant. Had a great time! Can’t wait to go back!
All the food here was amazing, service was very professional.
Outstanding staff and food!
Super fun! Great vibe. Amazing service and attention to detail.
Interesting and delicious fare, nice ambiance.
We went there for a business dinner and was pleasantly surprised. Family style serving provided us an opportunity to sample many of the items on the menu and we were not disappointed with any of them!
Great ambiance, and really beautiful bar. Great cocktails. Service was friendly and attentive. The food was interesting but not up to the standard of everything else the restaurant had to offer.
