“Great food, great atmosphere and great people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We made the detour to White Rock on our way from Victoria to Vancouver so that we could visit the Five Corners Bistro. We went on a Wednesday,so that we could enjoy the live jazz music while we dined. That evening turned out to be one of the highlights of our vacation. The food was perfectly prepared , nicely presented, delicious and quite reasonably priced. The service was prompt and courteous and the atmosphere relaxed. Dress casually and go on a Wednesday if you can. I promise you will not be disappointed.

“Cozy and Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I have known Rice and Kathy for many years and finally ventured out on my own for a dinner and visit. The first time I went with a good friend and had their warm seafood salad, and after that the salad just calls my name. I really enjoyed my visit last Wednesday and will be back very soon.
The jazz music by Rice's father that night was really enjoyable.
If you're in White Rock, you should definitely take the time to enjoy an evening with Rice, Kathy and his family.

“Charming Bistro In White Rock”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at Five Corners Bistro last Friday. The starters were Caesar salad and Warm Beet salad - both were full of fresh ingredients and very tasty. The Beef short rib was also very nice with a rich wine sauce. I found the duck a bit lacking in flavour and not as tender as it should have been . . . but I am somewhat of a connoisseur of duck. We each had a glass of wine (the Merlot was a few days past its best before date and was acidic). Service was friendly and the tab didn't break the bank. All in all a very nice evening. We will return.

“Like a french bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We were a party of 5 on the Easter weekend. When we parked outside the bistro we thought there would be no water view. I could see the ocean & beautiful sunset, however, from my window vantage point. No one else in our group could but the very french bistro ambiance inside made up for that. Our appetizers, entrees & desserts were sublime. Service was warm & friendly. We would definitely return.

“Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Wednesday night is locals night. Live music, friendly owners and staff. The wine list is great along with the prices. A good place to meet and greet. A place you can go even if you are single or alone.
