My wife and I spent a wonderful time at the Five Sails Restaurant last Sunday. We enjoyed the spectacular ocean views with a superb High Tea experience. Andres, our waiter, helped us to make the ocassion much more pleasant. Haydee Iglesias.

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

I have been to Five Sails a few times in the past 6 months and I find that it consistently delivers on a romantic setting, wonderful and gentle service, as well as offering creative dishes. If you choose your night or section, Michael was perfect...the last time we were in town. His conversation was delightful and his approach was warm, which suited our evening eloquently.More

今日分享返之前dov期間試嘅一間餐廳 😊 直接講結論:如果鍾意fine dining嘅人可以試 環境服務食物都有一定水準 👍👍 另外鐘意景觀餐廳+打卡嘅人都可以試 對住呢個view食飯係爽嘅(女士記得擦防晒 🤣) 但最最最想讚嘅係service... 係超級滿意啊!!我地個server叫Gaetano 全程都好nice 服務有效率又唔會好急似趕客~而最驚喜嘅係我比trip advisor嘅相佢睇 想叫類似圖一個杯上面有個波波嘅cocktails 佢話個款已經冇咗 以為叫唔成之際 Gaetano好主動話幫我問下bartender可唔可以做比我 🥰 而答案係ok!!咁都未完 到甜品再有驚喜 我又係trip advisor上面睇中個蘋果形狀嘅甜品 但lunch à la carte menu上冇見到 原來係dinner menu only~ Gaetano再一次主動問我係唔係想試 話可以幫我問下chef可唔可以叫 而再一次得到肯定嘅答案 ❤️❤️ 原本諗住難得有得叫 好啦 肥就肥啦 一餐食3個甜品(dov menu原本已經包含甜品 隊友唔係dessert lover... 所以基本上可以歸我 😆)而Gaetano竟然話可以直接用蘋果甜品replace dov...menu入面其中一個甜品 唔需要另外叫 🤩🤩 我直頭係到諗最近係咪做過咩好事 咁好彩遇到天使server 🙏 最後問Gaetano拎咗卡片 因為我要記住佢!做得好嘅人係值得被稱讚的 👍👍👍 當然 亦都好感謝餐廳團隊嘅其他人 特別係bartender & chef ☺️☺️ We visited during the dov period. The restaurant is located in Canada Place, with stunning view and the food taste really good. But the most unforgettable thing is their services!!! Our server, Gaetano, was definitely providing high quality service to the customers. We oftenly visit good restaurants around the world, but i would say what Gaetano did was totally out of our expectation. Highly recommend this restaurant to our families/friends and all ppl visiting vancouver. Thanks Gaetano and the restaurant team, you made my day!! So appreciated!! p.s. Hope the management of Glowbal restaurant group will see this comment, as a good staff should be recognized~More
