Five Sails isn’t your typical hotel restaurant. After working as the Pan Pacific’s hotel chef for years (and falling madly in love with the hotel's director of catering), Chef Ernst Dorfler got the girl and bought the Five Sails space, where he now enjoys complete creative freedom with his talented wife and partner, Gerry Sayers. That freedom translates into a beautiful, fine-dining expression of Pacific Northwest cuisine, with Dorfler’s native Austrian accent woven into the menu. Diners can expect to carve into game, like quail and local venison, eat Pacific seafood, and happily devour delicate, flavor-forward pastas. And no meal at Five Sailswould be complete without the sweeping views of the bay and surrounding mountains.
