Every time we come to Vancouver we stop at the 5 sails for our lunch or dinner. It is never a disappointment!. Service and food is wonderful. They really care. My favorite dish is the lobster bisque and the linguine with seafood. Always perfectly al...dente (I am italian) and flavourful. Nice selection of wine and...the view is breathtaking. No wonder is considered the 5th best restaurant in Canada! Highly recommendedMore

Great service and food! We were here for an anniversary dinner and had a wonderful night. The snails and pork chop were perfect. We also had a Bailey’s soufflé (not pictured) and my husband really enjoyed it. My only minor complaint would be that it...was a little warm in the restaurant (due to the large windows and the heat wave we’re having).More

Fantastic meal with great service. We were given great advice on what to order. The apple desert was particularly delicious and theatrical. Our table had a stunning view. It was a memorable evening.

My partner and I celebrated our 49th anniversary at Five Sails. The staff treated us like royalty and went out of their way to make it a wonderful evening. With the chef preparing superb food, the occasion could not have been better. Before we arrived,...the General Manager, Christophe Chabre, learned that it was our anniversary and promised to give us a memorable evening. He delivered! He welcomed us when we arrived and all of the staff knew that it was our anniversary and congratulated us. Seated at the best table with a spectacular view, we enjoyed a delicious meal that was enhanced with a complementary glass of champagne, amuses bouches, and a delightful chocolate dessert complete with candle. We were treated well by the entire staff, but we were especially spoiled by Mike and Ramon. I would not hesitate to recommend the Five Sails for a special occasion.More

We decided to do a staycation this weekend and support the local businesses . Our first night was at black and blue. I have to say I was disappointed . Food was a 3 , service a 2. The only thing they have going there...is nice ambience. Such a change last night at the five sails. Our server, Ramon was so attentive, personable and such a pleasure to interact with, I can’t say enough about him. We also had the manager come by twice , without being intrusive and make sure we were enjoying ourselves. The food was very good. Appies we’re very tasty with great presentation while still serving enough actual food! I had the lobster for dinner and loved it, my wife had the sablefish and loved it as well. We finished with a great GF dessert that was a perfect completion to the night. Did I mention Ramon? He deserves a second call out. Ask for him, he is worth it !More
