Good was great, loved theGood was great, loved the mini soup (complimentary), the house made bread and the little wing oysters! It was my fiancé's birthday and they added a special 'happy birthday' cookie to the dessert which was delicious! Loved the panna cotta dessert! Wine list was very attractive, but some rare bottles were out of our budget... Great experience overall!12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBishop's still sets the barJohn Bishop and his staff continue to set the bar for excellence in food, service, ambience, attention to detail, and making every guest feel special. Timing of service is always impeccable. It was a special evening for a reunion with an old friend, and afterward, she said she felt like a VIP. I had to let her know that she would feel the same on the next visit. It's that special. Great service does not a restaurant make...the food is equally stunning. To sum it up in two words...simple elegance. The wine list is beyond smart...it's thoughtful, deep, and passionate.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautifully presented dishes.Beautifully presented dishes. Our favorite was the beet salad with a selection of baby beets in different colours with hand picked greens. Wonderful experience from start to finish.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWith all the glut of new restaurantWith all the glut of new restaurants in Vancouver, it's easy to be dazzled by the "next big thing". Ask yourself how stalwarts like Bishop's continue to thrive in this competitive food market. Consistent and excellent local food, impeccable service and warm classic ambiance. That's how. And my last vist was no exception. Visit Bishop's to see how it should be done.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIMPECCABLE SERVICEHello everyone!
My partner and I was at Bishop's for dinner two nights ago and we had a wonderful experience. The food was very tasty & beautifully presented. We do have one comment on the Dungeness Crab Risotto - we can barely find any dungeness crab in the risotto. I can certainly tasted the crab flavor in the Risotto but if you named a dish with "Dungeness Crab Risotto" - people will expect to see a few bigger pieces of crab meat with it? ;-)
The service was very very attentive, professional, efficient and friendly. It happened that I was sneezing at the table - within a minute, our Maitre D' "Abel" came to the table with a small package of Kleenex on a plate. We were very impressed! Abel is also very charming and handsome.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, really beautifulAmazing food, really beautiful presentation and totally delicious. The wait staff is very attentive and very accommodating.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBishops on FridayHad a very pleasant meal at Bishops last Friday - my wife had spot prawns and Halibut. The spot prawns were the star for her - they were fabulous. Her halibut was very good and very nicely finished, perfectly cooked and nicely presented. I had raw kusshi oysters which came with two lemons to squeeze onto them, a grapefruit ice reduction and hot butter - they were extremely good - I love oysters and these were great. The standout for me was the risotto which had clams and mussels in shells, spot prawns, crab - this was in a light sauce that was incredibly tasteful - some light, tasty reduction of some sort. It was a winner and each piece spot prawns, mussels, clams were cooked perfectly. I think it was the best risotto I have had.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceThis was my first visit to Bishop's. Our party was very well taken care of by the polite and attentive staff and Mr Bishop himself. The food was excellent, the wine divine. Carefully chosen artworks hung on the walls. They could not have improved a thing. My brother and I chose this place to take my mother who is hard of hearing and we were able to enjoy our conversation and she wasn't left out, a concern at most other restaurants.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMmemorableWe enjoyed our dining experience immensely.
