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

We went for dine out experience . $40 per person and we weren't full. We shared 1 plate for 2 person. It was not enough at all.

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.

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.
