Still the best restaurant in town to celebrate something special AND have an amazing meal!!
We always enjoy our meals at Bishop's. We have been coming here for many years.
Went here for a date with my husband. Everything was perfect. The service is top notch. Would defiantly recommend.
lavacake was a bit dry but other than that loved everything about Bishop’s. def will return again in the future.
Bishop's never disappoints! From the time you are greeted at the front door to the time you leave, you are taken care of. Lovely meal, great wine.
It is one of Vancouver's crown jewels
We had an incredible anniversary dinner, from start to finish.
Amazing, once again!
From JB’s greeting at the door to the cocktails,waitstaff, service, ambience, good wine choices at a variety of price-points, excellent food - styling and flavour- it is all a top shelf experience. Our group of 7 lucked out because it happened to be Uber-quiet on this past THURS eve - and I am easily tired by and distracted in noisy rooms. I’ve been here when it was fuller and louder - but it’s still a lovely, cozy place. I recommend to colleagues travelling through Vancouver- if you only have one night in Vancouver and want fine food and service with comfortably sophisticated ambience a step away from downtown - choose Bishop’s. A long time vancouver gem.
Had another wonderful dinner here. The food was delicious as always. The service was great. They are always friendly and explain items on the menu. They made the night special by bring my husband a special Happy Birthday chocolate with candle. Can not wait for another reason to go there.
We enjoyed our meal with two friends visiting from Spain. They remarked on how good the European fusion aspect to the food was. Warm cozy setting for friends to chat and enjoy a thanksgiving meal together!
We enjoyed the 3-course tasting menu- excellent value! We started with oysters on the half-shell, which came wih is a delicious in-house made hot sauce. The breads were also very fresh and were nice to snack on with the oysters. Highlights were the Prawn salad and Ling Cod / Duck Confit mains.
Bishops offers excellent execution of favourite dishes, with excellent service. The menu is simple and effective, however not creative new foods and interpretations. Well worth returning.'
Bishops was great, as always. A longtime friend and I have dinner about once a year, and this was a great place to have this year's dinner. We both had tenderloin; I had the scallop appetizer. Portions are not large, but they're exquisite, and everything was superb; as it always is.
Bishops is a small restaurant in an old house, and deserves its reputation as one of Vancouver's best.
The wine list goes back to the 40's; bring your best charge card.
Bishop's has been a Vancouver fine dining gem for years and for good reason. The food is exceptional and the service simply amazing. It represents what traditional fine dining should be, not the noisy establishments that seem to be popular today. Simple elegance, amazing food, brilliant service - all very good reasons why this remains one of the best places in Vancouver to dine.
We have been going to Bishops for at least 30 years. It has never failed. We have had the odd occasion where it was not up to par but we keep going back and the dinner the other night was wonderful.
Great service with very polite staffs! Food is scrumptious! Highly recommended! Only drawback is tables r bit crowded.
Very romantic place to take a beautiful lady to impress her.
Food is great
Well worth for value!
Our favourite place to go.
bishop's was hands down one of the best dinners my husband and I have had. my appetizer was the scallops and main was the sea bass and it was the best! my husband said his main course was the best duck he had ever had. amazing service and John bishop actually makes his waythi every table! highly recommend it!
Absolutely one of the best meals I have ever had. Brought tears to my eyes!
Decided to try this restaurant based on the positive reviews read. The option of a set 3 course meal was an attractive idea to help with deciding on the dinner items as each appetizer, main and dessert were very tempting.
The food was indeed prepared and set very creatively, and each bite was delicious. My only comments would be that the portions for each item was a bit on the small side, and my simple request to have the food bill sent to me at the end of the meal so that I can treat my guests, resulted in the food bill being dropped on the other end of the table away from me instead.
We hadn’t been back for years as it dropped off our radar. The three course menu for $55.- is terrific value. All three courses were “right sized”. We didn’t desire more food, we weren’t stuffed...it was just right. The pan roasted sea bass was flavourful and cooked perfectly. My ahi tune carpaccio was outsanding and the light sweet popped corn caramel was a fun spin on the classic crême caramel. Wine prices are reasonable as are cocktails. All servers were knowledgable, friendly and attentive. The sommelier was tops...he knew his wines! It was busy for a Tuesday night so make a reservation!
Arguably the best experience in Vancouver.
We always love to come back to Bishop’s. The staff are so helpful and local foods so tastefully prepared. There’s just no comparison. Mr Bishop came round to chat 3 times. Our whole family enjoy dooming from his books. Can’t wait to buy his next one. Bravo!
Great service good food
One of the very few places in town where you get exquisite food and attentive, unpretentious service in a busy setting with a wonderful vibe, but which is still quiet enough to have an intimate conversation at your table. Vancouver has so many wonderful restaurants but this is still our favourite spot.
El servicio y la comida excelentes. Una gran atención, se adaptaron sin ningún problema a mis alergias y siempre con una sonrisa
Great experience: service personalized, great balanced of flavours on the plate. Cooking of the beef and lamb was perfect. Couscous was so good: we would have take more ;-) We liked the 3 course concept.
Tres bonne adresse avec un menu de prix tout à fait abordable et des mets très fins ( salade de fenouil aux pêches , carpaccio de thon ou encore salade mi cuite de tomates excellents ; en plat principal le saumon sockeye mi cuit était un véritable délice de même que la pièce de bœuf . Enfin l’apothéose, le dessert , pana cota au basilique et spumosa à la fraise, dessert au chocolat , ont ravi les papilles des convives . Nous y avons passé une excellente soirée . Accueil très sympathique. Adresse à ne pas manquer à Kitsilano
I loved the simplicity of the menu...3 courses with ~3-5 choices for each. Excellent combinations on every dish. And the service was extremely attentive.
My wife and I came to Bishop's for an early dinner before the theatre. Our experience began with warm welcomes from the staff, our sommelier was well read, incredibly entertaining and informative. We chose a bottle of St.Emillion (France) and had Foie Gras and Scallops as an appetizer - both were immaculately prepared, beautifully presented and completely delectable. Our entrees were the Pan Roaster Sea Bass and the Beef Tenderloin. As before, the entrees were the definition of perfection. The sea bass was served with bacon mashed potatoes, crispy shallots and an incredible sauce that defies description! The beef tenderloin was served with incredible mashed potatoes, a roasted carrot (I wish there were a few of these - they were spectacular) and beef jus.
The pace of service was on point, we never felt rushed yet the staff seemed to be there just at the right time. When I booked the reservation I asked if my wife and I could be sat next to each other instead of across a table, we were seated at a banquette which allowed us the intimate seating we prefer yet gave us the space to sit, holding hands and chat directly. Perfect.
An overall wonderful dining experience. Friendly and professional service and delicious food.
Delicious food with unpretentious, generous service!
Had a really lovely dinner here, fixed price 3 course dinner for $75 (excluding tax & gratuity). Also had a lovely glass of Bordeaux. The portion is just right and the quality is good. I had the scallops for starter, the lamb for main, and a fantastic special summer tart with ice-cream. John came by to speak with each table and it was a delight to meet him. Ambience is cosy and romantic.
Great service, food, and ambiance
It was for my husband birthday dinner. Everyone enjoyed their dish. The service was outstanding. Very attentive and Kind. The portion was good but I gave 4 starts on the value because I wish I could get more dishes for the price maybe with less portion on each dish?
Delicious food, amazing service and good atmosphere.
One of the best dinners we have had ever in combination with the food, service, knowledge of wine and ambiance. A must do for anyone in Vancouver and for all visitors. Thank you Mr. Bishop for your attention to us!
Wonderful. A gem in Vancouver. With John Bishop still at the door greeting guests!
Bishop's is consistently fabulous. The food was fantastic. There is a set menu with lots of options however, very little for vegetarians. Knowing the restuarant though, if we had wanted a vegetarian main course we would just have had to ask and something fabulous would have been custom made. It's also nice to find a restaurant that serves organic meat. You'd be hard pressed to find service like this. John Bishop meets everyone at every table and talks to them as though they are friends. They are very attentive. At one stage I sneezed, and within seconds tissues were delivered to my table! Our overseas guests that we took with us could not praise the experience highly enough. Highly recommended.
This after all these years retains its ability to satisfy and delight. From the warm greeting , to the excellent service this restaurant gets everything right. The food was superb the wine perfect the ambience just what we wanted for our anniversary.
