We went on a Wednesday night which was pretty slow, my dish my awesome, the beef short rib, my friends however not so much, chicken karaage and rice cake. The bartender was great and made a custom cocktail which was amazing.

My husband and I were in Vancouver for my birthday; we had our first meal in the city at pidgin and it did not disappoint! We had the tasting meal, which consisted of eight phenomenal courses. My favorite was the beet salad and the fish entree; my husband loved the mushrooms and the meat (duck) entree. We lacked for nothing—the meal was impeccable and the dishes were all amazing. The service was great! I highly recommend this place for any occasion!

The food was good, service was a bit ... cold..? Maybe we were a bit loud - but the restaurant was full of chatter as well...

It made me feel a bit unwelcome, although food was worthwhile!

Restaurant & Essen waren ausgezeichnet. Als Tourist muss man allerdings wissen, dass sich das Restaurant in einer Straße befindet, in deren unmittelbarer Umgebung sich fast ausschließlich Obdachlose & Rauschgift-Süchtige bewegen. Daher war der Weg zur Adressen für uns als Unkundige vor Ort teilweise recht befremdlich. Ein paar Straßen weiter war dann, zumindest von Außen betrachtet, die Welt wieder „in Ordnung“.

Food was spectacular, as usual. Our waiter was a bit of a know-it-all, and his attitude was off-putting. But the actual service was excellent. It would be helpful if the person who explained what each dish was had a better command of English, and didn't speak so softly. In a crowded restaurant, practically whispering doesn't work. Couldn't get what she was saying. Fell in love all over again with the oyster shots, and the shishito peppers.

Korean Rice Cake Bolognese blew my mind. The seasonal mushrooms and pickled mushrooms also carried a plethora of flavor.

Decent portions. Loved the duck n foie. The salmon didn’t do it for us though.

Came here while on vacation to Vancouver. Came with rave reviews from friends but was the biggest letdown I've experienced in a long time. Tasting menu lacked creativity and was downright disappointing. I've maybe complained 2 times in my life to the manager about the quality of the food...and this was one of them. Avoid, don't listen to the earlier help reviews. This place is finished and trying to cash a check.

Outstanding food and service. Well priced for the quality. Only gripe is that it is very loud, too loud for an easy conversation.

Before we traveled to Vancouver we had 2 different friends that told us we "must" go to Pidgin. Pidgin exceeded our expectations. Great service, amazing cocktails and the food was fantastic. It's an original menu with simple twists on classic dishes that make Pidgin unique and a must try. Please open another Pidgin in the Los Angeles area :)

Quite creative and well-balanced taste food at very reasonable price. Many homeless wander around the street just across the restaurant. Be caution at night.

This was s wonderful experience and evening! My favorite restaurant in a week of dining at mostly top-ranked restaurants. The food was delicious and the thought that went into the food was impressive. But mostly; it all worked!! The cocktails were unusual and startlingly good! The flavors were memorable. Our server, Ryan, was an absolute savant for what the chef and team were cooking! He was a delight! I rarely take a moment to write a review of my experiences, and there have been many I’m happy to say. This will be one among few: truly fun and memorable! Wish I could bring Pidgin home with me!

We were seated at the table we requested in advance via Open Table. Our wine bottle was welcomed without issue and opened and decanted for us. The cocktails were excellent - superior ingredients. Service was attentive and a perfect balance of being present without being intrusive. The menu designed for sharing has something for everyone yet unique in every way. Ingredients are fresh and presentation is original. Highly recommend.

It was an amazing experience! I shared with them that it was our friends' anniversary and they had a special table for us right next to the kitchen. It got us salivating over the halibut and roasted lamb!
Everything was amazing... from the sake to the bubbly to the food. I cannot rave enough about the roasted lamb - cooked to perfection. The servers and bartenders were friendly and made the entire experience feel all that more amazing! Thank you!

Service was really great at explaining the menu. We decided on the tasting menu, and were very happy with it. The oyster shot was amazing. Another standout was the pork belly rice bowl. On the cocktail end of things, we tried the Rotating Duke's Martini and the Barrel Blended Sazerac and both were exceptional. The pace and portion sizing of the tasting menu was just right! We hope to visit Pidgin again next time we are in Vancouver!
