an asian french fusion restaurant with amazing cocktails, sake and wine in gastown, Vancouver, BC
Dine-out menu. We will be back for the full menu.
Dineout 2020. Excellent food. Great service, friendly bartenders. The halibut was my favorite dineout dish. We’re going back soon to try their regular menu.
We ate at pidgin on our trip to Vancouver for our anniversary. It happened to be dine out vancouver so we ordered the herbivore courses that were served family style. Everything was delicious and the presentation was stunning. Highly recommend!
It was a lovely experience, the service was awesome and very personable! My partner and I loved the fishes, however we did find the tuna tartare a little bit fishy - but overall the rest of the dishes were delicious!
Too salty and food portion is not match with the price level.
The food is very innovative. Loved the combination of ingredients and flavours. The sablefish in the broth particularly, was perfect. For a fine dine experience though, it did not really feel like one. The wait staff was professional and efficient but not nice or kind. While explaining the dishes, one of the servers was too fast and incomprehensible. All the wait staff focused on explaining the dish to only me, leaving my partner out of the explanation. The tables were very close together, such that it was easier to hear the conversation alongside than with my partner across me. The dishes were all served in one bowl with smaller individual bowls, but there was no cutlery for some courses except chopsticks. Since it was out first Dine Out experience, we would have appreciated a bit of prologue, maybe even some suggestions/tips, but none were forthcoming from the waitstaff.
Disappointing food and more disappointing service
The Dine Out menu was fantastic! Our server was splendid and helped us navigate all six courses with ease.
The drink pairing with the Dine Out menu was phenomenal.
The pork belly bowl has too much oil in it... the taste very greasy ..
Food was extremely salty
Service from the entire staff was perfect- friendly but not intrusive. Our server was great at recommendations. We were impressed that the servers knew the menu so well and could describe every dish thoroughly. We had the chefs tasting menu. Each dish was very well executed. Even if there was an ingredient that one of us didn’t personally enjoy we still realized how high the level of craftsmanship in the kitchen is. Thank you chefs for your incredible work. We highly recommend Pidgin and will return if we are ever in Vancouver.
Mediocre food, service & environment. Slow service. You should expected more for the price. Around $130 per person.
just really not impressed by the food they served on the new year eve.
Delicious, small portions and a lively-loud atmosphere with attentive service. Creative cocktails.
Pidgin remains a must-visit restaurant every time I'm in Vancouver. The tasting menu is always different, always inspired, and always spectacular.
The service is pretty good but the food and the drink was not impressive especially for the price :(
Wonderful dining experience.
Simply the best. Even after 7 years, Pidgin continues to surprise with its creative, flavorful, and unique dishes. The staff is just down to earth, friendly, and - most importantly - knowledgeable.
Pidgin remains a Vancouver highlight. An independent star amongst the many “chain” restaurants in town.
We chose the prix fixe with beverage pairings.
All was good except for me finding out that I'm allergic to raw oysters. (Long story: it happened once before but had I assumed those oysters were contaminated.)
We would go back and do the prix fixe again, but this time we would order wines separately. And skip the oysters.
The staff were very kind and supportive.
Mushrooms to die for
Let's start with the obvious, this is not your average restaurant. The food here is for foodies and has some definite Asian influences. That being said I'm sure that you've never tried most of the food available here. Extensive wine and beverage list. I would recommend that you do the tasting menu because for the price you will leave stuffed and perhaps even left overs as we did. It's not cheap, this place has the ambiance and service to match the price that you pay though, and the food is some that you will never try anywhere else. Recommended and would go again. Came for my mom's birthday and she loved it.
A great place to dine before catching a Firehall Arts Theatre performance.
Great experience. Our server suggested a tasting menu and wine pairing for dinner otherwise we would have been lost as we didn’t know half of what was being described!
It was the perfect choice and a wonderful experience outside our normal comfort zone.
Highly recommend Pidgin and Sarah was the best server ever!
Amazing presentation loved the way our waiter described the food. We had a lovely dinner.
It was great!
Always a great dinner experience!
Lovely chef’s tasting menu! I enjoyed myself so much, I forgot to take photos!
Love this restaurant. It's one of my favorites in Vancouver. Unfortunately this time we felt ill from dinner, perhaps from the large clams.
Yummy fusion food, especially the
Lousy. Very over rated.
I don’t know. They were. Loses for a national holiday in spite of open table taking the reservation.
Service and food did not disappoint. Will definitely go back.
We had the tasting menu and we were blown away by the quality and service. Every serving had a unique flavour, story and texture. It’s truly a culinary paradise with servers and cooks that clearly love their craft.
Sierra makes every visit. She’s the best.
Definitely pick dishes to share. The fois gras was generous and amazing, as was risotto and peppers. But our fav dish of the night was the mushrooms. As for service, it was about as good as it verts. Friendly, personal but not too overbearing.
Everything was perfect, we arrived late evening after work. The kitchen was closing and our server helped us plan our meal. We had cocktails, appetizers, shared a salad and main paired with a delicious wine. We’ll be back!
Very unique tasting menu. Great use of local ingredients. Oyster shot was special.
Awesome food and service! Good for date or special occasion!
