Dinner: Nightly: 5:00 pm - 12:00 am
Horrible service and clientele with expensive, subpar food.
We had high expectations when booking our recent reservation. Our expectations were far exceeded!
We had another totally wonderful and complete dinning experience at Wildebeest.
As two Floridian travelers, we first came upon Wildebeest a few years ago thanks to a friend living in Vancouver. Back again, and with all the choices Vancouver has to offer, Wildebeest was our pick and it was the correct selection. Farm-to-table, fresh, unique ingredients, expertly woven together by a skillful kitchen, delivers on a creative and imaginative (but not weird or bazaar) menu. The wait staff was engaging, knowledgeable and professionally friendly. We invite two guests to join us for our second visit and between the four of us we pretty much covered the menus with our selections. From Bison to Halibut to Smoked Duck Carpaccio to The House Charcuterie and Deviled Eggs Foie Gras. Great wine list as well as desserts. Totally enjoyable and well worth the visit!
Excellent food, very unique. Menu descriptions do not exactly represent what you will get - the lasagna was more like a meat pastry, as the pasta was quite crispy, however it was delicious.
Fantastic! Liam was a blast to talk to, and the food was simply spectacular. My (now) fiancee and I got engaged the day before, so we were ready to spend a good amount on the omakase and it was so fun and delicious. Highlights include the olives, bone marrow (ask for the luge after) and the bison w/foie gras.
For drinks, the improved sbagliato is definitely the most unique version of the current amaro cocktail craze that I've seen in a while.
Great! We had the horse tartare which is a must. My only suggestion is that they please bring the elk back on the menu. :)
Great food and service, the cocktails are worth a mention too. Definitely try the omakase.
Good food and service i would recommand to all foodies
Very good brunch and great service.
Great comfort food with a local twist. Great service in a warm inviting place.
Last night of a family holiday in Canada. Booked this after a recommendation in a UK wine magazine. Very high quality food. Our 17yr old son was blown away by the game lasagne but said he didn’t want dessert, he just ate most of mine - the bourbon bread and butter pudding with lavender creme anglaise. The thyme ice cream with the silk cake was amazing too. I could go on. It was nearly $100 each with drinks and tip but worth every penny (sorry, cent).
Great place. We did the ‘Omakase’ option which basically means you’re in the chefs hands (although you can state items you may not like/want).
I would reccommend this option to everyone (but don’t hold anything back) as some of the dishes will surprise you.
Drinks, service, ambiance was all fantastic.
Thanks for a brilliant evening!
We did the chefs choice option and loved every single dish they brought us! And it was a reasonable price and we walked away completely full. Great ambiance, great service.
Food was delicious and the servers were really knowledgeable.
Great atmosphere. Nice to see the chefs working away clean and professional. Highly recommend when visiting Vancouver
Absolutely outstanding service, great wine list, and delicious food. I find it to be slightly overpriced and the music was a little too loud for a conversation in a group. Overall a great experience and we’ll definitely eat there again.
Exceptional food, ably & imaginatively prepared. Great atmosphere & service. In a town filled with a dearth of amazing eateries, Wildebeest stands out in my experience as one of the top 5 & a must-do for any locavore's dining list. Do yourself a favour: GO!
Beyond exceptional. Each plate was simply perfect; I cannot think of a way to improve anything. We had: devilled eggs, boar belly, salad (special), bison flat iron, pork jowls (special), and the bone marrow. Dessert: milk&honey combo, and brioche bread pudding.
Was there for brunch. Had good options although none of us were a fan of the hash browns. A bit too crispy/fried. But the veggie Benedict was delicious
I came here with a group of friends for my birthday. We are all foodies. Everything we ordered was delicious!! We tried wild bore, venison lasagna, duck poutine, rabbit saddle, iron steak, horse tar tar, chicken, green beans and cornbread. I recommend everything! Playing was on point and the food flavour combo was a hit! I will def be back!!
Every thing was amazing and original. Great wine. Great service. Thanks
kitchen very accommodating with dietary restrictions. food was great. nice way to experience other flavours. staff super helpful. highly recommended.
Very impressed. Our server was amazing. He recommended the "omasake" where they decide what you eat, which was awesome because it made us try new things we have never had before and probably would never order on our own. The food was fantastic. Still having dreams about it. Had the best Old Fashioned I've ever had as well. 12/10 would highly recommend.
Always a trust always good our third visit
My friends and I, in Vancouver to begin a cruise, went to experience game at this venue in Gastown. The horse tartare was good, the bone marrow was great but you don't need the sherry add-on. Two of us tried the saddle of rabbit (excellent), the other opted for the game lasagna...this dish was disappointing, it looked like an enchilada and was just okay. The service was slow and spotty... I think we'd only come back during happy hour for drinks and appetizers.
The steak was fabulous albeit pricey. I wasn’t sure the fuss over the Old Fashions was warranted. I like the ambience.
Excellent food and service. We got the tasting menu. The chef really nailed the techniques of his dishes. Highly recommend.
Both times I have eaten here have been extremely memorable. The food is excellent served by staff who care about the food. I don't fine dine often, but wildebeest is worth it.
I loved the experience of the omakaze.
Our attendant was clever’ well versed in the possibilities of the chef and the results was very surprising
Excellent scallops, but consider upping the portion size. The bison was great, too
Great dinner! Our waiter was wonderful and the food was to die for. Don’t miss the bone marrow!! The cocktails where a hit also, really creative and hits the mark.
BEST. MEAL. EVER!!!!
Great dining experience! Outstanding food with amazing flavors. Highly recommend allowing the staff to order for you. They will take into account any items you may not want to try and deliver a top notch meal. We had fun being surprised with what was coming to the table next!
Food is very different and delicious, lots of interesting ingredients. Fantastic cocktails as well
I love Wildebeest every time I go. The service is excellent, the food to die for and the atmosphere is awesome.
Outstanding meal. I have a number of allergies and the chefs at Wildebeest came up with 6 dishes that wow'd my tastebuds!! My husband was equally impressed. Our server was personable and very knowledgeable on the menu. Pricey, but oh so worth it! I will definitely be recommending Wildebeest to friends & family. Almost can't wait to go back to Vancouver for another meal at Wildebeest! Only negative for me was the location. It's not far from the "rougher" part of Vancouver.
this is a very nice spot! Our server was wonderful and the bottomless mimosas are a great deal!
The only negative thing I would say is that the tomato and burrata salad is very small. BUT it is delicious.
What an amazing meal! Tell them your budget, and they prepare an amazing meal that is beyond flavourful! You will not leave hungry or unsatisfied. The dishes are rustic but refined, inventive and locally sourced. The service is by far some of the best I have ever had. Don’t be afraid to be adventurous here, it will be well rewarded! I suggest the bone marrow with a bone luge to follow!
Very slow inattentive service, they seemed very understaffed, good food in general with some Great dishes !
What stands out is the service. Staff were clearly knowledgeable of what they were serving and described the meals presented in excellent detail and with pleasant enthusiasm.
