We got in late and Ebisu was open late and looked alive with all the people. I heard Vancouver was famous for sushi but we are from LA and San Diego so we have lots of good sushi places to compare. We were disappointed at the quality. Menu looks good but doesn't taste good. Maybe people come here late to... More

We had a good dinner -- not expensive, fun atmosphere. Most of the food came promptly and was very tasty. One dish came late -- as we were leaving -- but it was removed from our bill with no complaint.

Although we had to wait for 30 minutes since we came in a large group without prior reservation but worth the wait! An awesome food plus a great service. A must visit.

Very interesting menu, the prices are great, the dishes are quite creative and presentation is excellent. The service however was slow and the sushi bar was really backed up we were told some of our order would take up to an hour to prepare.

A dozen good oysters for .99 ea, beer and sake deals, perfect place for a solo Sunday meal where one can order sushi and chicken wings and nor be out of place. Great prices and pretty good food all around.

I can only comment on their happy hour, but I love it and it's one of my favourite happy hours in Vancouver. I love coming here with friends and we'll share a couple pitchers of beer and appies. The service is friendly and can be a little slow at times, but overall, they're pretty good about keeping water glasses filled... More
