The fare at Bishop's is regional and seasonal. In restaurateur John Bishop's view, it makes sense to showcase British Columbia's lush bounty of seafood, organic produce and meats. His exquisite West Side restaurant blends classic and modern flavours with a casual elegance that keeps clients coming back for a truly exceptional dining experience.

Unfailingly superb food and service. Very knowledgeable staff helmed by the calm, suave John Bishop.
The modestly priced $65 prix fixe three course menu is varied, with choices for everyone. Thoughtful wine list with carefully curated BC section. Attentive service which was never intrusive.

Best restaurant in Vancouver. Every course is memorable. Experience is repeated each time we visit. In my view a direct peer (in terms of elite dining) and definitely ahead of West, Hawksworth etc.

Dining at Bishops is always a delight. The service is superb - friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. The appetizers and mains were truly excellent.
The only shortfall would have to be the "cherry tart" dessert - which was much more custard tart than a fruit-based dish, and the coffee, which really wasn't quite up to snuff (for a coffee town like Vancouver).
That said, we would go back to Bishops anytime. There is good reason why this place is still a Vancouver institution after so many years!

This is a very classy restaurant. John greeted me at the door with upmost respect.

I arrived by myself and my friend showed up about 10 minutes later. I wanted to order a snack or a drink, but the staff were waiting for my friend to arrive before taking care of me. I told one of the staff that I felt ignored.

Overall, the food was fresh and amazing, The ambience is chill. The service is very good.

I would love to return!

John is amazing. I am starting a food blog soon. He will be the first feature.

Thank you so much for an overall amazing experience.

I continued our Daddy-Daughter birthday dinner tradition with my now 35-year old girl at Bishop’s and it was very nice. The service was very attentive and the 3-course prix fixe plates were artistically presented (which meant pretty but sparse), quite tasty and fully priced ($65pp + supplements + 4 glasses of wine = $250 for 2).

We haven't been for some time as for some reason this amazing restaurant has been off our radar. What a mistake that was....lovely, helpful staff, incredibly beautiful and tasty food make this a winning choice for a romantic evening, a dinner with great friends or an adult family get together. We look forward to our next visit.

Have to say that the new limited menu at Bishops was a huge disappointment for choice I must hasten to add. It's been a few years since I was last there before recently and there used to be a lot more choice. That said the food quality was excellent and delicious. The value very good for the money versus quality. Service not up to what it used to be, but Vancouver has a service crisis and true serving professionals don't exist anymore. One has to accept this within the parameters that restaurants, even the top ones, are forced to work with.

We love Bishops, we have been twice and the people are lovely and the food is unbelievable. The only thing I recommend is to bring a light sweater or wrap in case you sit near the windows as I got pretty chilly between two(it’s the middle of winter). Sitting near any window anywhere in winter gets chilly :)

Bishops is one of our favs. It was slightly disappointing this time because it turned out to be a winterlicious / dineout menu even though they don't officially take part in it. Cheaper menu but limited options.

If they have the octopus carpaccio available when you go, GET IT
