    Food was OK but not great. Very small amounts for big bucks. Wine list has mainly bottles over $100. Service was not very friendly. It did not live up to it's reputation as being one of Vancouver's best.

    I really enjoyed Hawksworth 2 years ago, but my last visit wasn't so great. Two of us ordered burger (medium) and omelette. Burger arrived well done, not medium as ordered. The server never returned to our table until we were finished eating, and never asked us how the food was. Both dishes had good flavors.

    Lunch for two without dessert and only one drink costs as much here as a full three course dinner with drinks at restaurants with better calibre food. We had a lobster risotto which was disappointing as it was not creamy as expected and was instead oily and greasy. The warm wild salmon salad I had although it had an abundance of salmon had little to no salad, and any vegetables were mostly fingerling potatoes. It would have been more accurate to call this a wild salmon with fingerling potatoes than a salad. Service was also very slow, rarely anyone came to check in on us and it was hard to flag someone down to get a bill. Save your money and go elsewhere.

    Meals here never fail to please! This time there were 4 of us, and every plate was delicious and surprising. The Hamachi Tartare starter was superb and the Foie Gras and the Carrot soup were equally good. Three of us had the Butter lobster, and the fourth the Beef Strip. The plates were very clean after we finished eating! The Sommelier had some great recommendations, and accommodated both wine by the glass requests and bottle requests with the same professionalism. Oh yes, and the waiter - he was a treat - professional, discrete and personable. Highly recommend this restaurant for anyone wanted a great evening out!

    Probably some of the best food I have ever eaten. Sturgeon was cooked to perfection and the flavours in the whole meal were amazing. BUT the noise level was way over the top and the overall atmosphere was loud and pretentious. There were a couple of large groups in the room and that, combined with a fairly low ceiling and a completely packed dining room, made it really hard for a party of two to carry on a conversation. The tables are also VERY close together. Hawksworth would do themselves well to remove a few tables from the space to allow a more enjoyable experience. The room is beautiful and the food was perfect but I wouldn't rush back next time I'm in Vancouver.

    We came to Hawksworth to celebrate my girlfriends Birthday. I've been here many times and have always been happy with the service. Sadly, this recent visit left my girlfriend in tears. She had a rough birthday last year, so I wanted her to have a special one at a place I held in high regard. The treatment my girlfriend received when she criticized the quality of a drink, the Hotel Georgia, was both demeaning and humiliating. The waiter went so far as to question whether she drank it properly, that 3 others said it was fine and assumed that her PH balance was off!? This is absolutely unacceptable! While the food was good, this service left a terrible taste in our mouth. The manager Taylor Mikasko attempted to help but it was too late...

    My boyfriend was in town for the weekend, I had been raving about Hawksworth for weeks. We booked brunch in advance, glad we did so. Boyfriend could not believe how good the food was. A downside was the child crying and wailing, but that was not the restaurant's fault. Also, you can purchase the salt and pepper grinders!? This restaurant is a gem. Will continue to rave about you guys!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/9/2014
    As visiting Australians we'd seen wonderful reviews in media at home and booked well ahead. We arrived to find our table not ready. Told we could wait in the lounge, we were led to a very crowded and noisy bar. We declined and sat in the foyer. The hostess informed us that the people at "our" table were now on dessert and she would hurry them up. A restaurant that hurries up its diners is not exactly a class act in our book. When finally seated we found the dining room noisy with a large group beside us. From there on things improved. Waiters were attentive & helpful without being intrusive. The food was outstanding. The combination of flavours was sublime and the plating creative and artistic.

    My husband and I went for our anniversary and although I admittedly expected it to be a bit over the top and stuffy considering it's reputation, we were very pleasantly surprised. The service was very warm and welcoming, the food was flavourful and my dietary requirements were not just adhered to but I was made to feel "included". The space is a bit crowded but it does bring a sense of energy.

    The Ambiance rating would have been higher except for the server. He did not engage with us and would never have known it was our first visit because there was little conversation. The food was excellent except for the coffee which was not great. We had to request cream for the coffee - milk was brought first. The Eggs Benedict was done perfectly with the eggs being soft as requested with a tasty Hollandaise sauce. The steak with the eggs were done perfectly. On the way out we gave feedback about the coffee which was not the first time they had received negative feedback and were trying to change distributors. I would go back for the food but one of our party said they would not return because of the poor coffee and the price point.

    Won't find anything on the cheap, spent $130 + tip for 2 entrees and a couple glasses of wine, but foodies will enjoy. Portions were reasonable, quite filling. Had the duck which was excellent and the chicken which was also tastefully done. Wine list is extensive, I thought the dinner menu was a little sparse, not a lot of vegetarian entree options. I would recommend if you enjoy great wine and cocktails, but this place is aimed at a certain kind of 5 star clientele, that could easily spend $200 on a dinner for 2.

    I am highly allergic to garlic and there was some in my food at Hawksworth. When I called the restaurant that night, it went to voice mail and I left a message to let them know about the incident but I never heard back. Very disappointing as the good was good but quality control was bad. It takes me several days to get over the allergic reaction, and even more disappointing that someone has not gotten back to me since.

    Returning to Hawksworth was highly anticipated and they did not disappoint. Not only are the dishes done to perfection, but they go beyond beautifully executed food on a plate to an adventure in your mouth. A lovely heirloom salad is elevated by small burst of balsamic caviar bubbles and a basil granita that is refreshing and delightful. The sweetbreads were crispy and smooth simultaneously and the lamb was enhanced by the intense flavours of olive puree. And by far the most exciting bite was the amuse bouche of salmon tartare. Held on puffed squid ink the crunch combined with the silky salmon was outstanding. Thank you for your awesomeness. Can't wait to return.

Somnelier was very helpful. Our waiter was in a bit too much of a rush. Three times he approached our table and immediately started talking, which interrupted our conversation. As I finished the last bite of my appetizer the waiter placed my main course in front of me. It was not busy at lunch, but we were made to feel rushed.

    Was here for a group breakfast- loved the ambience, and food was great. Service was lacking, our server made several mistakes - gave wrong orders to the wrong person, and left out items, and also brought out wrong items. The table next to us had not been cleaned since we arrived, and we noticed a few other tables in the dining area that were still not cleaned. She seemed like she was new, and no one else was helping her out.

    We opted for the tasting menu with wine pairings. The portion size was perfect; the pace of the meal was excellent; the wine pairings were very well thought out and the service was very good. The tables are close together and on this night the place was packed so the noise level was such that we would hardly hear our table mates...had to lean forward to hear what was being said...not ideal for sure. We also started in the bar with a cocktail from their long list. These were very good and the service, again was outstanding. We thought overall it was well priced
