My sister took me here for dinner last night, and on top of a great meal, even better service, we happened to go on a Wed. evening when they have FANTASTIC music. It was a jam, and I have to say I haven't enjoyed a night out as much in a very long time. If you're looking for a place... More

This review is a little overdue. We have enjoyed the Bistro a few times, the last time with friends. It was an enjoyable and entertaining evening. My friends later commented that they would love to "do this again. Rice is very personable and makes sure each guest is treated as one of the family. Thanx 5 Corners Garry Wieler Langley,... More

Hi Lisa, Thanks for taking the time to write your review. While I'm not thrilled to see it, and personally take full responsibility for your disappointing evening, I think I need to explain. I had fired my chef the day before you arrived for your birthday dinner. He was rather new to me, and not measuring up. I came in... More

By happen-stance, we walked in on a busy Friday night to ask if there was any way we could get seating for five for my husband's birthday dinner. Rice Honeywell and his family staff were more than accommodating! The food was so delicious my daughter, who has frequented many White Rock restaurants on 'date night' proclaimed this was the best...

Thanks you so much for taking the time to review our Bistro! I can't tell you how gratifying it is to hear from new patrons on their first visit here and that everything was to their liking. While running a restaurant is not always easy, it's reviews like this one where we hosted a family's birthday celebration and created some... More

A family run bistro in the heart of uptown White Rock, we really, really wanted to like this place. Once upon a time (read: previous owners) this was a neighbourhood haven of quiet, elegant ambiance and delicious food. Sadly, now, the well-meaning owners are failing. Mostly due to lack of restaurant savvy and know-how. Why do so many people have... More

Hello, thanks you for taking the time to review our family restaurant. As I’m sure you’re aware, running a restaurant is a constant challenge. Our goal in opening this restaurant nearly four years ago was to offer our friends and neighbours an alternative to the now ubiquitous franchise and corporate-run restaurants’ way of doing things. Our goal always is to... More

This is the second time that I've eaten here and I have not been disappointed. The food, service and ambiance were great with some wonderful live music. He kept the music down low enough that we were able to talk in comfort but still listen if you were so inclined. After wonderful, grilled Caesar salad, the lamb shanks were probably... More

We went to this Bistro twice, first time the food was great. Agree with other reviewer who mentioned that the tables are close together, at the time we ate there was a tealight sitting incentre of table, not in a container, which I felt was a little dangerous as such close quarters. On our second visit, our food was re... More

We thought we would try the Five Corners Bistro after reading the good reviews, but we were disappointed. The Caesar Salad was ok, but the dressing didn't taste homemade. I'm not so sure the scallops were as fresh as they could have been and the pasta wasn't cooked al dente. Service was fairly good though! I'm not sure we would... More

The grilled caesar salad was grilled just right and braised rib was tender and juicy. We had just sweet chocolate torte and a moist upside down cake and it is always good when the chef makes his own desserts. the service was attentive, friendly and timed nicely. This family owned bistro has the right mix of casual ambience and great... More
