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

The food, décor and service is great. The Lamb Shank and Coq au Vin as well as the grilled Heart of Romaine in Caesar dressing were delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant if you like good food and ambience.

Hello, a quick thank you for your review, I'm so glad you enjoyed your menu choices and will pass along your praise to my hard-working chef Gilbert! He's coming up to his one-year anniversary with us and we feel he's helped us become the restaurant we've worked hard to create over the past 3-and-a-half years. Hope to see you again... More

Had a birthday dinner with 2 other people last night. We picked this restaurant based on the reviews and were not disappointed.
