Unfortunately, overall noise level was too loud. Was difficult to hear each other at times. No need for additional and loud music

Super great atmosphere and good food. Love the cocktails and dessert is a must. A super hip and trendy place for a date, special occasion or girls night. I love how everything is meant to share. Definitely a Vancouver gem to impress your company but definitely more expensive!

Everything is always excellent at Nightingale. Seriously!!

Each new person that I bring to this restaurant (and I’ve brought lots of different people) absolutely loves it. They all rave about the excellent, extremely flavorful food, great atmosphere, and wonderful attentive service.

Waiter was knowledgeable about cuisine and preparation however had we ordered the amount of small plates he suggested we would have had to invite 2 more people!

Brought my date here for the first time and he was so impressed! The clam spaghetti is to die for. Not to mention the mushroom and tomatoes salad, both my faves!

Great restaurant. Excellent food and service. I would, however, recommend a better beer selection. Perhaps have more mainstream beers such as Heineken or Peroni. Overall great experience for me and my wife.

The food and the wine was amazing. It made a memorable night for us. We had a fantastic wine from Italy Tuscan Sang- don’t miss trying that! We had a few dishes but the Kale Salad, Lamb Chops and Tuna. I asked them to give me a table with no distraction and the table was in a great spot and best corner.

Took my husband here for his birthday- we were given a great table overlooking the lower level. I requested a good table on Open Table and they gave us one of the best. The lady at the door was amazing. Our server was wonderful and the food was outstanding. It was a wonderful night. Cant wait to go back again to celebrate people, food and life. This is the place to do it all.

No special arrangements made for my birthday, which I mentioned was tonight. For my future birthdays, i will choose any other restaurant who appreciates me as their customer and goes every mile to ensure my birthday is celebrated best. These guys just want your money.

Service was excellent. Rigatoni was nothing special. Lamp chops cooked beautifully with a delicious char on them. Could hardly taste the mint. Would prefer that mint was more pronounced. Pickled beets delicious and summer salad refreshing.
