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.

This place is really slick. Great food, presentation, and super pro staff. Wouldn't mind some music, which maybe there was some, but there was a very loud table beside us.

Lovely meal, very attentive staff but not intrusive. If you’re looking for bling and glitz this isn’t the place for you. If you love good food in traditional surroundings then don’t wait

What a wonderful restaurant. The food is always fabulous and the service impeccable. We are always welcomed at some point by John Bishop who always takes the time to make you feel welcome. This is our go to restaurant for any special occasion that we celebrate and invariably bring any of our out of town guests here to have a memorable dining experience.

Have always loved dining at Bishop;s...a quiet, non hurried restaurant with sincere emphasis on fresh, local cuisine. The artists works on the walls lend a special ambience...you know you are in B.C., eating fresh food in a congenial atmosphere.

- A chair was in need of repair, backing slides off when picked up.

- Given dining spot had a musty odour.

- Next table over had a couple of irritating inebriated female diners, would not keep quiet
for others, nor would the staff inform them to tone it down.

- Served and charged for a bottle of mineral water which we did not order.
If you are to charge diners for a bottle of mineral water, please at least leave
a full fresh bottle at the table. Drinking flat mineral water and being charged for it
is just not fair to the diner. Nevertheless, we are kind and quietly paid for it anyways.

- Bread tasted very unfresh, "retail bought" like.

- Dessert tart was extremely sour.

- Duck was dry.


Other than the above critique, everything else was fine. Will return again in the future.

We had a lovely dinner for my wife's birthday. My only criticism is that the piece of halibut I had for my entree was a bit small. Otherwise it was an excellent meal. Thank you to John Bishop and his wonderful staff!

Imagine relaxing in the comfort of your own home, only after it’s been tastefully beautified by some local art work, white linens, and warm lighting. Add a lovely celebrity host and some equally lovely staff members who all treat you like they’ve known you forever, then sit back and just enjoy. Food is world class, always perfectly prepared from quality, mostly locally-sourced ingredients. You can take in as much or as little advice you want about food, spirits and/or wine pairings. One thing for sure is that you won’t ever feel uncomfortable at this place. Always feels like you’re being spoiled at home. This time, it was fresh kusshi oysters on the 1/2 shell, then pan-seared scallops, organic beef tenderloin and, finally, a selection of artisan cheeses. Silky smooth service to match. Everything was superb—as usual!

Bishop's is in the top 3 restaurants of Vancouver. It's a beautiful restaurant. The walls are white with white linen and interesting paintings. It is elegant but not pretentious. The service is excellent and friendly. The food is simple, light and tasty. They masterfully intertwine ingredients to enhance but not overpower each dish.

John Bishop was the first person in Vancouver to do farm to table and it was long before it was trendy. He is a kind and gentle person. This is a gem of a restaurant!

Dining at Bishop's was an enjoyable experience. The restaraunt is small compared to others which provides a personable ambiance in a low decibel environment. The food and service is outstanding. It is a perfect place to take a loved one for dinner.

Once we came into the restaurant, we felt that we chose an excellent place to have dinner. The atmosphere was so sympa (in French) and we felt that we were really welcomed by all staffs.

Diner was brilliant which is obvious but what I was impressed is that Mr. Bishops made a small greeting to all tables. We now understood why he could run this restaurant over 30years.

We had an excellent night with them. Thank you so much.

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.
