The fare at Bishop's is regional and seasonal. In restaurateur John Bishop's view, it makes sense to showcase British Columbia's lush bounty of seafood, organic produce and meats. His exquisite West Side restaurant blends classic and modern flavors with a casual elegance that keeps clients coming back for a truly exceptional dining experience.

We truly enjoyed our meal and dining experience at Bishop's. The service was impeccable and the wine knowledge was excellent. The only complaint was that the halibut was a bit dry.

We were greeted warmly at the entrance. Our table was not ready at the time of our reservation because the previous guest were still chatting and the host offered us wine while we waited.

The staff were all very attentive and knowledgeable with all the specials.

It was a wonderful experience and the food was perfect.

They also threw in a little surprise at the end to celebrate my wife’s Birthday.

It’s sad to know they will be closing it’s doors at the end of the year. We definitely want to go there again before they close shop.

Bishop’s never disappoints. Quality, taste & presentation of the food was exquisite. Service was impeccable & the little added “treats” made the whole experience shine that much brighter. It had been quite a number of years since I’d been back to Bishop’s for which I should have my head examined. Bishop’s is what fine dining is all about

One of the west side's premier restaurants where outstanding service compliments fine food and a thoughtful wine list. Somewhere to feel "special."

Even during these covid times, John Bishop maintains a dignified, calm atmosphere in his fine dining establishment. Not inexpensive, but still good value, IMO. Always nice when he pops by your table to chat briefly.

A favourite place to dine - the right balance of friendly with fine dining. Locally sourced ingredients beautifully plated and incredible flavours. Beer and wine menu is limited.

One of the best dinners out I've had in Vancouver. Crab/salmon cake, confit and lemon (dessert) medley were all fabulous. Very glad I finally got here before they close for good. I deducted a star from the value, not to single out Bishop's, but as a general indictment of the cost of dining out in Vancouver which sees me in these great restaurants only for very special occasions. I have had countless meals, equally as good or better, in Italy, France, even England, for half to two thirds the price.

Great food, service and lots of special treatment for the birthday girl! The bread (made by John Bishops wife) was amazing. . as was each and every course of the meal. . .we will return! Highly recommended. Also recommend the take out food. . the best!

The famous high touch service is missing for us tonight.
Water glasses were left unfilled and dishes were not cleared when finished etc.
Food was okay but not spectacular. Had a really messy presentation on the death by chocolate dessert.
