I have dined here several times and had high expectations.
Our table was terrible - right beside the kitchen.
Service was good.
The food was good but not remarkable.
This experience was not up to par with what I had become accustomed to at Hawksworth

Excellent food as always. Service is always impeccable and the description of each course was described well.

The seared foie gras was amazing tonight. It was cooked perfectly a top a soft bread of sorts. We also had the scallops and hamachi for starters. For mains, the duck is a must. It is my favorite main dish and I have ordered it on multiple occasions. We also had the lamb with cauliflower. Also very good although I prefer the duck if I had to choose between the 2.

For dessert we had the dark chocolate and the ice cream. The chocolate was a little sweet for my liking but still not bad. The ice cream was good as well.

We will be back again sometime soon.

I had such high expectations for the dinner in the restaurant tonight but the experience was really disappointing!!! The food was just okay, nothing amazing and worth the hype. Not to mention that the service is just horrible! Our server was simply rude! His voice was so low that nobody can hear him clearly. Then he had no patience with our questions. When I asked about the parfait, what he said was it’s just a parfait... what kind of answer was that! Overall his attitude was arrogant and rude. The experience was so poor that I am not coming back for dinning anytime soon!

This was my third visit to Hawksworth but somehow I got disappointed. My 2 family members and I were arranged to sit in a dark corner near the restroom. This dining area was not the main glamorous area. The waiter who served us was moving like working in fast food restaurant and rush everything. This totally destroyed the elegant atmosphere dining in a French restaurant. When we asked the waiter to take a group photo for us, he did it without patience even he was not very busy. We ordered the set lunch without ordering wine or other food items. The waiter showed a bit looking down to us. When the waiter came to ask me if I want dessert or coffee or tea, I told him that dessert was included in my set lunch. He then showed impatient and told me that now he was asking if I wanted to order coffee or tea. Poor service spoil the total dining experience. I won't come back to Hawksworth again.

Great ambiance as soon as you walk in to the venue. You can feel the energy starting from the host, staff and guests. The food was delicious, well presented, modern and creative. It was even better to ask for recommendation from the sommeliers. The appetizers and mains were well-paired. Fantastic service by all. We would like to say a special thank you to Jayton Paul who was very attentive and knowledgeable.

Overall experience was very good. The food and drink were outstanding. The service was good, but could be improved with a little more responsiveness to equal the quality delivered with the food. The restaurant itself is a bit cozy and it would be good to have a little more room in between tables, but at the end of the day, was a great experience.

We celebrated mom’s birthday there last weekend.

First impressions:

We were greeted by the friendly host. She was very kind and welcoming but we were distracted by how wrinkly her blouse was. Not what one would expect to be the first impression of a 5 star restaurant.

The decor and ambiance was just what we were hoping for. Dark, romantic and plush. We were comfortably seated at a round table in the back room.

The food:

The appetizers (albacore tuna, scallop) were beautifully plated and tasty. But there was no wow factor, nothing unique in flavor, texture etc. they tasted as expected.

The mains however were disappointing. 2 guests ordered lobster tail, and 2 guests ordered the beef ribeye. The lobster tail, although presented well, were tiny (looked more like large prawns) and had a soft (not fresh) consistency. The beef ribeye was surprisingly gristly. We all ended up with overly chewed pieces of meat on our plates. Admittedly we did not make a fuss, but thought the wait staff would’ve noticed the chewed meat piles building on our plates, especially when clearing the table. Instead we received no inquiry or comments.

We all had dessert (dark chocolate chantilly, sweet milk ice cream, crème fraîche, and cherry) again well plated, were all just ok, nothing noteworthy. A chocolate “happy birthday” plaque was added to mom’s dessert, which was a nice touch, but no candle. We were hoping for a candle.

The bill:
2 glasses of wine
3 appetizers
3 mains (2 lobsters and ribeye for 2)
4 desserts
3 teas

Total: 522CAD (with tip)

For a restaurant rated as one of Vancouver’s best, we were all disappointed. The experience, service, and quality of the food has steadily declined from when we had first visited the restaurant in 2012. Unless a trusted source (ie. a like minded friend) recommends Hawksworth in the future, I don’t think any of us will be dining here again.

We dined at lunch
1. Service at the bar was excellent
2. The 3 course lunch menu was outstanding
3. Wine pairings and sommelier knowledge was excellent
4. The only tiny thing that was not the best was bread basket. $6 ....I have no problem with the price and the portion was large but the breads were not great (not super fresh
5. All in all great experience

I booked Hawkswoelrth for a nice meal with a very good business friend. The service was outstanding and the meals were perfect. I had the sablefish and it was cooked perfectly. My friend had the short ribs and raved about how tender the dish was. It is an experience everyone should try!
