Nothing wrong with people talking but the noise bounces off all the hard surfaces.11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was inspirationalThe food was inspirational and the wine was divine. The sommeliers know their stuff :)11/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic all round, complementsFantastic all round, complements to the Chef and the whole team.
Our experience was inhanced by a very well trained and down to earth waiter.
I'm not sure of his name, he had worked in our home town Sydney for the Merivale group.
The amount of thought into the produce was well expressed on the menu and plate.10/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service even recommendingGreat service even recommending other restaurants to visit whilst in Vancouver, wine was exceptional, the scallops and lamb shoulder were fantastic10/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu is creative and everythingThe menu is creative and everything is executed perfectly. The food was fantastic, the wine recommendation was perfect for the food we chose, and the service was great. It's expensive - not a regular outing, but well worth it for a special occasion.8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy fourth time dining here,My fourth time dining here, second time being served by a server named Sarah, who is very warm (which, previously, was my only complaint about the restaurant - service that was slightly austere). The food is easily the best in Vancouver in terms of fine dining. Will return.8/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks for the great foodThanks for the great food and dining experience; I enjoyed the KFC the most.

Excellent place to spend a special evening out.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMuch better experienceWe returned to Hawksworth for a second meal during our visit to Vancouver and as a couple this time (previously as a foursome) and had a much better experience. The food and wine were equally good but the service and the pace of the meal was much improved. We would definitely go back based on our second experience. My earlier review talked of being rushed but this time we felt the pace matched our mood and I was offered no only a second but a third cup of coffee. Great experience.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood!I have to say, that Hawksworth is a fantastic restaurant, the food was good! It came a little cold I found, the service was impeccable. Definitely recommend it though, the interior design is just stunning.

The food was extraordinary.. and with an appetizer and main, the amount was perfect... Service was incredible. Friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable staff.

The food was wonderful. It really is a great restaurant but it is kind of pricey.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat we were looking forI had the tuna tartare, duck with foie gras and the chevre cheesecake; my husband had the sweetbreads (thymus and bone marrow), the sturgeon, and the cheese plate. The server and the wine steward were knowledgable and attentive. We really enjoyed our meal and felt that it was great value for what we received. Thanks Hawksworth.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful BrunchLooking for a great brunch, I found this awesome restaurant open now for brunch, so we decided to give it a try. It was an excellent experience, sine the service, the food was great everything perfect. I had the eggs Benedict (soft) done to perfection and we had pancakes they were absolutely delicious. We definitely had a great time. I would come back many more times. I love it!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday brunch, rather quiet.Saturday brunch, rather quiet. Warm welcome from our server and the Restaurant Manager. Food and service were both spectacular, although the coffee/wine service was slightly sluggish considering the number of tables. Once arrived, however, they certainly were worth the wait. Not to be ignored was the valet service upon arrival/departure. Professional is an understatement.
Kudos all around.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experienceAs a diner that doesn't eat out at high end restaurants often, this place was perfect for our anniversary.
The food was delicious and vibrant, the service made our experience perfect.

We had brunch and the full dessert menu, all fantastic, especially the passionfruit!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!The food is phenomenal although the vegetables tend to be slightly too salty but still acceptable. I love the plating presentation too. Portion of dessert is just right. The only thing that I did not really like was the treats along with the bill. They were extremely sweet. But I still rate Hawksworth with 5/5. I would definitely go back with my foodie friends.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMawesomeCreative, delicious, attentive - what's not to love?5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Experience!Pre-dinner cocktails in the lounge - fun!

Appetizers were very good; My meal (Agnolotti) was outstanding. Other meals in our party were free range chicken and halibut; a bit disappointing not seasoned well enough. The others were stealing from my plate.
