Nightingale Ratings and Reviews
This was my third visit in 3 months. Highly recommend! The service is amazing - friendly, authentic staff who seem genuinely interested in your enjoyment of the food. Some of the courses were served by the Head Chef and you can tell by the way he spoke that there's pure love in the food. The pizza was a definite highlight - we had the special Cacio e Pepe pizza last time and the one with smoked prosciutto, gorgonzola, walnut, watercress, and five year balsamic the time before that. Both excellent, perfectly balanced and full of flavour. These are not heavy pizzas - they have a thin, delicious crust. I've had the buttermilk chicken and the apple salad on two visits. It's one of those places where you have a hard time choosing between something you know is absolutely delicious versus trying something new.
We had a great work team celebration here. The service was great and there was something for everyone.
Food was incredible as was the service . Love your menu options and sharing plates.
Will be back soon.
My first visit to thus restaurant a year ago was very good...but I have found on this last visit the food very mediocre, service average not engaging...Good for ambience
Fantastic experience again at Nightingale. The sommelier was super helpful in finding us a fabulous wine and our service was excellent. Food was delicious.
second time dineing at the Nightingale & it was awesome. always great service & excellent food served hot and fresh as always! would recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends.
One of my fave restaurants in Vancouver. We went for my fiancée’s birthday and he said he wouldn’t mind if this is where we go every year. Food, service and ambiance is on point!
Lots of wonderful choices. Eat a little, eat a lot. Servers.are exceptional.
One of the best meals I’ve had in Vancouver as of late. Excellent food, service, ambiance - and the sommelier was amazing!
if you want a quiet place this is not the restaurant to go to. The food was okay, the service was
The servers were spot on and the atmosphere was perfect.
Outstanding food! Outstanding service! That pretty much sums it up.
We had an amazing experience !!!
The service was great ... the food outstanding!!!!
From top to bottom, Nightingale is fabulous. The staff, the food, the, well, everything. It’s my favourite restaurant in Vancouver.
The food was fantastic! And a very reasonable price-point.
Exceeded expectations. We are tourists from New England and found a special experience at this restaurant. We are in our very early 70s and loved the youthful vibe with a healthy dose of respectfulness. Love the idea of eating as little or as much as we wanted. Quality of food, flavors, selection and service were A-1. Clayton, our server, was perfect. Of course, you had me at “A Night In Willoughby.”
Every time I visit nightingale I can’t wait to go back. From the moment you arrive you are treated like a VIP. The menu choices continue to change and go from strength to strength. Our server was fabulous, attentive and on point. Thank you to the entire team for another fantastic experience!
The food could not have been better. We came here with a group and everything was amazing.
Only complaint is that we told the waiter to order for us but don’t get anything with tree nuts. So of course he brings out the pro belly —- with nuts. Sigh.
And then the bill initially charged us for 16 people. And we lost our waiter halfway through the meal.
But don’t let that stop you. The food is well worth any issues the front of the house creates.
Phenomenal good and service! Would highly recommend.
All staff were well trained, helpful with the menu and had the perfect blend of fun and professionalism.
Food was delicious and portions were perfect.
I look forward to going back and trying other items on the menu.
We had a wonderful experience at David Hawksworth's Nightingale. The food Chef Phil prepared for us was very special and well crafted. The maitre d' was amazing. Chef Phil was outstanding. We personally appreciated that he checked on us and shared a few words about his food.
We'll be back and not soon enough.
Looking forward to more strange rich foods to warm these bone chilling north western winter dinners from this kitchen.
Simply excellent in all respects! Great for sharing and great for vegetarian options, impeccable service, knowledgeable staff, imaginative takes on familiar ingredients, great ambiance. If you haven't tried Nightingale yet, do so.
Each dish was exceptional and it was a great relaxed sat lunch
Amazing experience. Waiters were very knowledgeable.
We often give stars too easily. Nightengale is almost worth an extra star, but just falls short a tiny little bit. Service great but a little slow. Food is superb but a little pricey. Ambiance is large but a little cold. Very close to being a great restaurant, but not quite there. Would definitely still recommend.
Overall it was a nice dinner - i would saw for whatever reason the over all experience was better the week before. Service was a little up and down but overall good. Had put in for preference for a nice table but ended up in the middle of the floor which was ok but not exceptional for a special event.
May go back again - but will be more active with my special requests.
The mushroom pizza was disappointing, not crisp and sub-standard, although the fried chicken and meat balls were good. The service was excellent.
I would hesitate to recommend Nightingale to my friends as far as food excellence is concerned.
We were in the "kitchen view" seats - very entertaining. Dan, the Chef, had some good recommendations.
We didn't realize it wasn't full plate service, and more of a a la carte style for sharing. We would not have brought our guests here if we had known however the food was good, the staff excellent and the ambiance great. So we would go back.
Share plates make for a great lunch or dinner spot for many or few. Atmosphere is on point and food is excellent!
Life altering lunch! Cannot wait to visit again.
Had a gift card from Hawksworth that was given to me as a gift. Just found out the balance of the gift card was completely gone. The manager said they couldn’t even locate anything information on the card. But, he very quickly fixed the problem the next day and re issued another card for me. Very prompt and courteous service👍
Great food, great drinks and great atmosphere. A desert offered for the birthday girl would have been nice.
Great place for a family or group of friends who love to eat family style. Delicious food, timed perfectly. Waiter was engaging and we appreciated his suggestions.
Enjoyed lunch but had we known the dishes came out one by one in a casual fashion (which we like) we'd have ordered differently. Next time we'll know as we'll definitely return.
Excellent food, we enjoyed the flavours in each dish. Food was served at a good pace, servers were all pleasant. The room was quieter than on previous occasions, Saturday at noon was nice. Great place to bring visitors. We will definitely return.
Excelllent! Austin our som picked out amazing wine pairings to go with our tasty and flavourful dinner.
We had a fantastic time. It was a bday treat and we really felt like the staff made it special. What a gem of a restaurant. Thanks for making our night so special.
Birthday for girlfriend and her twin sister. Lots of great food and atmosphere.
The food and service was amazing. Our server checked up on us, and checked with us individually if we had any allergies.
