It was our first trip to Vancouver. We ate here at a friend’s recommendation. It was fantastic - especially the mushroom dish with the purée, sauce, and ramen egg!

All courses were delicious and the service was helpful and knowledgeable.

We only wish we had more time so we could have opted for the full tasting menu. Would definitely make it a point to return next time we’re in town.

We both ordered the prix fix menu and were delighted with many of the dishes.

We felt the summer salad had a bit too much salt.

I felt the duck was perfect. Absolutely remarkable job with the duck.

Excellent spot. Great food, creative touches. Excellent cocktail menu. Like other high-end spots, heavy price tags make it tough to bring more diverse groups though. Great spot for drinks and happy hour though.

It's hard to quite summarise our evening at Pidgin, incredible service, chefs table, an attentive waiter who managed to service our ever need without intruding at all. The food was simply stunning, umami flavours from every dish. Superb hand-crafted cocktails. One of the best meals I've ever had.

As expected.. a unique place that offers unique food. It's also delicious. Highlight of the day were the Halibut Corral and Venison Tartare. The fish was so plump and juicy. The sauce with juicy lard and special vinaigrette topping.. too good. The venison was so fresh with asian pear and black sesame dressing, paired with make-to-order-crunchy-crackling-chicharron (literally would pop as served). I cannot think myself not to go back here again.

Our server Ry was the best too. Excellent insight of food and cocktails. Knowing us first timers, he would explicably describe the food and drinks, the taste, and the right way to consume it. All the staffs are well-dressed and very friendly as well. It's gotten busy as the night came by, but they kept up really well looking so effortless.

Plus, the ambient is just perfect. Such a contrast from the outside. I really appreciate the interior design from custom comfy seats to a wall that works to hold our menu and bowls for sharing. Lighting level was perfect. Song volume is just right. People who come here I think aren't so loud in general, which is nice that the design and setting help us to behave ourself more.

New favourite!

Second time coming here using a Travel Zoo Voucher. Was a great experience, much better than the first actually. They rotate the menu often, which can be nice. Food this time around was excellent. First time not so much. Really nice cocktails as well. Reccomend it, definitely with the TZ voucher.

A fusion blend between Asian Cuisines(specifically Japanese style) and Northwestern Pacific flavour. The dishes could be a miss or a hit, Foie Gras bowl is something I genuinely enjoyed though. Service can be improved for a high-end joint like this. But after all, I would rate the overall experience for 4 Stars. If you are a duck liver enthusiast, this is the place worth driving hours for that one tiny bowl of heaven. But if you are just a normal diner that wants to try out something new, I won’t recommend it.

This was our first meal in Vancouver and it left no disappointments. My husband and I didn’t leave one bite behind. Everything had a well developed flavor and richness to it. The food left the feeling of being loved. Would go again if we lived in town.

We did a tasting for our visit which I would highly recommend! This allowed us to try almost everything on the menu and it was all amazing. There were some items served that I had never even heard of before so it was interesting to get to try new things. The staff was super knowledgeable, friendly and attentive as well and really made the overall experience super enjoyable.

We were a group of five sharing so were able to try many menu items. All were excellent with several truly outstanding dishes including the foie gras rice bowl, oyster shot, shishito peppers and asparagus. Our server, Sierra, was excellent. Overall fabulous experience and I am already looking forward to returning!

Once again, PidGin doesn't fail to amaze me! Incredible flavour combinations, excellent service, a truly enjoyable experience. We took some friends to try it, and they were also very much impressed.

The only thing I would recommend is if they could have a separate gluten free menu so that it's easier to communicate the options and substitutions necessary for those who can't have gluten.

It was another fabulous dining experience at Pidgin. I have enjoyed this place 10 times since Dine Out 2017 and so happy i found and discovered it. The cocktails are ever changing, creative, interesting and delicious, the dinner specials change nightly so I have something new to try every time I go as well as my favorites and the service is absolutely delightful, efficient and attentive without being intrusive (special mention to Jordan)!

I highly recommend the pork belly bowl, asparagus in however way it’s made, foie gras rice bowl and mushrooms. I always have a flight of sake and whatever artisan cocktail with mezcal is new. Very hard to go wrong with Pidgin!
