My sister and I chose this location for her 50th anniversary celebration. The menu choices were great and the food superb. In addition, the service was outstanding. Everyone was well looked after and enjoyed every moment of this special occasion. Particular thanks are due to our server, who was not only attentive but entertaining in a low key way. I had some helpful advice from Gerry about ordering an anniversary cake as well. We agreed we would definitely would eat there again and try some of the other selections on their regular menu. Many thanks to all who contributed to make this night memorable for my sister and her husband.

The service was excellent. Very attentive and seamless without feeling that they were hovering. The floor to ceiling windows showcased a beautiful view of the water and city.
The food was excellent, perfectly executed.
The owner came out to the table to check on us. I highly recommend it!!!

Just wow.

Went with my husband, we got the tasting menu and the paired wines. Honestly, I don't think I ever knew I could enjoy food this much. It was absolutely perfect. The service was excellent - attentive, polite, everything you'd expect. The food was... I genuinely have no words. It is expensive (around $400 for the two of us) but absolutely worth it.

A great location for a special occasion or whenever you want to experience outstanding fine dining. Every course shows attention to detail: plating, complexity of flavours and textures, and quality of ingredients. Expert service, with each course delivered with a commentary on the composition of the plate. Extensive wine list for every budget.

We went to Five Sails restaurant for our anniversary, we made a reservation and everything was well taken care of! They gave us a choice between two of their best tables by the window. The food was absolutely delicious, amazing presentation also. The Chef was also very generous by giving us complimentary degustation. Service was of no equal and the owners were very thoughtful and caring.
