Nightingale Ratings and Reviews
Cool spot, great food, unique cocktails.
Stopped in for Saturday lunch and tried a selection of their offerings with a half bottle of wine. The food was very good but as others have mentioned, it would be easy to spend quite a lot of money here. Not a place I could afford to frequent on a regular basis - like Hawksworth this feels like a special ocassion restaurant.
Amazing food and comfortable venue with great atmosphere.
Beautiful evening meal. Don’t miss out on the cocktails either, every dish was amazing.
second time to Nightingale for lunch and food was just as spectacular. Great service and ambience. Pricey for lunch but worth it.
Food was rather disappointing. Everything was overseasoned and off. Even the dark chocolate cake didn’t taste like chocolate at all.
The interior is absolutely stunning, warm and welcoming. The food divine and the service impeccable . The only negative is that the space is really loud!! The acoustics are bad and need some tweeting. Other than that I love it.
All great except noise
The food was excellent and we had a great server. It was a bit noisy but we still really enjoyed our evening. Great value.
Best dining experience my wife and I have had in years!
The food was great but our server would not leave us alone. He would visit every 2 minutes and ask how things are going and fill up the water if he notices we took a sip. I understand he's providing 'service' but this was to the point where we felt very uncomfortable.
Excellent food, though we were disappointed with the service. My fiancé and I are huge foodies and when we were served our dishes we never got an explanation or description of the pates.
I also found that the plates were not timed properly, they came relatively fast one after the other and we got out first dish before being served with wine.
Other than that we really enjoyed the food and hope these comments are taken as constructive feedback.
We ordered the Berkshire pork & cheddar sausage for $16 and we think it is overpriced. It is literally just a single sausage and it didn't taste like anything special. The food overall was good. The service could be better for the place and price.
Very disappointed, food is awful, pizza was burnt, chicken was burnt,
The restaurant building exterior and interior were great, with the two level setup. Service was great as well. But that pork belly meat selection could really improve based on price charged: from 80/20 fat/lean ratio as observed to perhaps 60/40.
All in all a nice experience.The room is rather hollow and not the warmth i'd associate with other restaurants. The food is great as is the service.Good drinks and good wine list.Great place for lunch or dinner and whats nice about Nightingale is they take reservations !!
Our server provided exceptional customer service. She was attentive and very friendly.
There is a fine line between when something is burnt vs something that is browned. The kitchen sent us multiple dishes that tasted and were visually burnt. The group I was with were all chefs from popular restaurants from other Cities. It was a shame, as usually this restaurant is on top of there game. While the restaurant covered the cost of one of the two dishes that were inedible, it would have been nice if they just provided us a refired dishes as opposed to comping it. No option was given. Everything else was well prepared and tasty. Service was rushed but knowledgeable.
It was OK. Nothing to write home about. A couple of the dishes we had were extremely salty.
We had our first staff Christmas dinner here for our new business! Great food, great service. We will be back
Would not go back
Food was not good
Great food, elegant ambience. Crowded business dining room upstairs and bistro style dining downstairs.
Such a great place. Attentive waiters and amazing food! Try the roasted brussel sprouts, I'm not a fan of the little green globes but will order them again at Nightingale!
Restaurant was moderately busy, made a reservation in advance for 6pm and although there were many available nicer tables, hostess tries to pawn us off with the worst in the house.
Made me wonder if booking on open table made us less of a priority for them?
Waitress was the worst we’ve ever had. Offered no niceties, no meal suggestions, no offer to answer any questions on the menu and hen had the audacity to suggest the wine left
In the carafe would be for her. She really should not be front of house. Other service people who came around were way more attentive and pleasant.
The food was really good, the room and value also. Would return only if service improves.
Took my sister here for her birthday after my friend had recommended Nightingale. It was safe to say that we all enjoyed every bite and our server was very friendly and attentive. Thank you Nightingale for a great experience!
First visit, having recently moved to the city. Everything was spectacular and distinctive. Service was excellent. I dined with former art director of The James Beard Foundation. He loved it as well. Can't wait to try other dishes.
Talked to the manager about the cake cutting fee. He waived it but his attitude was condescending and rude. The other staff were all very nice.
Quite simply, my favourite restaurant in downtown Vancouver. Went there for an anniversary dinner, and everything was great, the food, the service, the wine and the atmosphere. I would highly recommend to anyone.
Perfect in every way. Best restaurant in Vancouver.
Simply outstanding! Kudos to Chef Phil and the culinary and service teams!
The food was served Tapas style, with an excellent and diverse menu. The server was informative and astute, gave good advice and kept track of how the meal was progressing. The seasoning was excellent, everything was tasty and interesting and there was great variety. This is a great place for friends or family or informal business, for either a quick short meal or making an evening of it.
Please note the Pizza takes a long time to come out, but is worth the wait too!
All items were excellent. Hanger steak best choice. Extensive wine list; easy to hear even with a minor hearing disability.
Beautiful restaurant. Amazing service and great menu and food. We loved it. Perfect place. Would highly recommend.
We were squeezed for time due to traffic issues getting there and concert tickets afterwards. Staff were very conscious of our time constraints and got us out on time. Wish we could have stayed longer.
The food was fantastic and the waiting staff were attentive however the food came out one dish at a time and was extremely slow.
We were celebrating with our two adult kids and their fiancé's- three birthdays and two very recent engagements . We all loved the restaurant. The food was delicious and creative. Lots of great vegetable dishes and gluten free options. We will be back.
Fabulous experience, great staff, fantastic food.
Amazing food and great atmosphere! Really creative dishes, fun to share.
Good atmosphere and great place for work cocktails. I've noticed though that the menu tends to replicate sauces. It seems like the nut topping and harissa show up in almost every dish.
We had a really great evening at Nightingale! Awesome food and service, somm Patrick helped us pick out a fantastic bottle of wine! We will definitely be back!
