My wife and I had the 7 course tasting menu and each dish was great. Notable were the oyster shooters, mushrooms, and steak. I would surely order those again. Service from Ryan was top notch, friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Definite win for our last meal.

Went here for Valentine's Day. The menu was similar to their tasting menu, with a bit higher price tag for the occasion (and small menu changes). The bar drinks we had for appetizers were unique and tasty. We decided to spring for the Sake / Wine pairings which were also great, and a good value. The food was phenomenal and up there with the best in Vancouver. On a normal night, the value would exceed those at others I'd put in the same category (Market, Bauhaus, Botanist). I have no problems recommending this restaurant for a more up-scale dining experience.

My wife and I attended Pidgin on Valentine's Day, which had a prix fixe menu, with an optional wine/sake pairing. We decided to have a cocktail and sake flight before dinner, with a nice Okanagan Pinot Noir for the rest of our meal. Our server was incredibly friendly, attentive and helpful, while not overbearingly so. There was a vibrant, lively atmosphere inside, with several diners enjoying their evenings. Compared to other prix fixe menus, Pidgin's wasn't so "precious", focusing more on the ingredients and flavours, as opposed to whether it should be presented on bark, or sea foam, for example. Haha. Highlights were the scallops on top of the homemade trout ravioli (broth was amazing), and the seared duck was truly delicious. Personally, I prefer a little more quantity. Each dish seemed somewhat small, since it was to be shared between two people, raising our eyebrows at the $95/pp (before booze, tax and gratuity). All in all, we had a delicious meal and wonderful time.

When they call you to confirm your reservation and mention that the 6 course valentine’s day dinner was $95 per person you would assume it was a course set for each person not one course shared for 2 person, this was way too overpriced for what they served, food was fine, I won’t come back for special holidays here anytime soon

Pidgin is a really cool restaurant. The standard of food is up there with the very best restaurants, but it retains a really casual atmosphere. This was down to both the ambiance and servers who were friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. The wine / sake flight is a must. Defo recommend highly.

 (Edmonton)·Dined on February 2, 2018

Well, what should I say about this place. I think the food was quite good, even though not consistently so. The ambience is very good, so if that is why go out, then this would be a good choice. The catch is: don't stay for more than 2 hours. This is important if you're planning to talk to people while you try at the same time to digest a 5-course dinner. We were not informed of this beforehand (and, no, it is not the standard everywhere to have 2-hour slots, not even/especially in very good places) - instead, we were told quite bluntly after our last course that we have 15 minutes to order and finish a dessert, pay and leave. As if this wasn't the highlight of our evening, the people at the next table were told *in the middle of their last/main course* that they have 7 minutes (and I am quoting, seriously, this is not an exaggeration) to order dessert. And we heard this loud and clear to the next table, so at least this makes their policy consistent and not just bad service on our part. They were, expectedly, a bit shocked. I did share my opinion with the staff as I was leaving. So, I am not sure how people take this kind of (lack of good) service in a restaurant, but I see no reason to go back. Vancouver has a myriad of places that are at equal footing or better in terms of quality/price ratio - and still adhere to normal good standards of customer service.

We had the $40 Dine Out Vancouver Festival menu, there were 6 courses shared between 2 people. We loved every single course, some stand outs were the mantou, the trout with dashi risotto and the apple yuzu tatin. We also got the pork belly rice bowl which was delicious!! At first we were unsure of how the experience would be because during the Dine Out festival restaurants can be a hit or a miss with lots of diners and rushed service, but this experience was amazing and we’re looking forward to coming back to try the regular menu items

Heard a lot about Pidgin but never been so decided to give it a try during Dine Out. OMG! is all I can say! The food was so original and delicious. And beautifully presented with obvious pride. I and my two dining companions were all equally impressed with everything from the amazing menu to the service. It was busy and noisy - our server was hustling like crazy - but we never felt rushed or neglected. We'll be back to try the regular menu soon. Just awesome sauce!

My husband and I and a friend were pleasantly surprised by our wonderful dinner the other evening. The review in last Saturday's Globe and Mail was spot on. The tasting menu served during Dine Out Vancouver was delicious and excellent value. The ambience and service were both excellent! Another bonus was that we could hear ourselves think and carry-on a conversation. We will definitely go back as our first experience was excellent!

We had to wait 15mins for each course. Not like other fine dining restaurants with $$$ sign on google, the waiters didn't take care of each table by checking if the customers finished food or not. We were so starving while waiting. Taste of the food was just so so... very salty somehow.
Won't go there any more.

Went here for dine out, which is a set menu. It took 30 minutes for a drink to arrive, 45 minutes for the first appetizer, and 1.5 hours for the salad appy. Others who sat down after us were already on dessert. I can’t even review the food because we barely had any. Unfortunately I’m forced to give service at least one star. They deserve a 0.

Went to Pidgin for Dine Out and was more than pleasantly surprised by how good both the service and food were. My expectations were not high because in the past I've found restaurants tone things down for Dine Out type events, but that was not the case here. At $40 for 6 shared courses, this meal was great bargain. We opted for the wine pairing and were glad we did. Some of the wines were unusual in a really good way, and I appreciated being introduced to a few wine types that I hadn't tried before. Would highly recommend.

Were surprised that there were so many dishes for dine out. Great value. Delicious cocktail and friendly staff. Nice ambience. Just not too crazy about the eggplant puree. I did not find that it matched with the flavourful beef. The arctic char and dashi risotto was our favourite.

The items on the fixed menu are delicious. We ordered the fried buns, salad, trout, fried chicken, mushroom risotto and beef cheeks. The mushroom risotto was out favorite- it has dynamic mushroom flavors. The fried buns weren’t freshly deep fried but that was the only item that wasn’t amazing.

The wine selection is wonderful. We tried the blend from noble ridge and were delighted with it.

Pidgin's aesthetic and ambiance is nice and well-designed, however the food was not worth the price, even with the dine-out deal that's happening this month. The drinks were fantastic, but I was disappointed with the flavor pay-off of some of the dishes, considering that the restaurant claims to serve asian-fusion cuisine. Compared to some of the other popular, trendy asian-fusion places in Vancouver such as torafuku and bao bei, pidgin's food is not up to par, taking into account their expensive prices.
