Service, presentation and product never fail.
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.
Thoroughly enjoyed everything! Will be back soon.
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.
Bishops always will be one of our favorites. It's one of the best in the city. ambiance, service, elegance & the food is amazing every time.
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.
Lovely evening for hubby’s birthday. Romantic setting with great food, notable wine list and excellent service. Would highly recommend for that special occasion.
The table service at Bishop’s is at higher level and the meal was top notch.
Best in Vancouver - every time
Lovely evening; a perfect celebration for our daughter’s graduation.
The food at Bishop's is always extraordinary--but just as enjoyable is the personal attention from the staff. All of them are nice people with whom one loves to chat. We had a wonderful evening. Thank you!
Excellent food. Warm service in a pleasant atmosphere. It's hard to beat Bishop's. The restaurant goes for quality, not quantity, which I appreciate.
So glad we found this gem!
- 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!
Great food with friendly and professional staff. I would go back again.
Service between first course and second was quite a long wait than - closer to 45mins
We had such a lovely dinner. Thank you so much for the informative wine knowledge, the interesting menu and the delicious cuisine. We will be back!
A visit to Bishop's is a must for me each time I travel to Vancouver : the quality of the food is top notch. Especially loved our lobster risotto appetizer, artic char/prawn and great wine.
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.
We recently celebrated an anniversary at Bishops and were delighted with our choice. Service was impeccable and the menu choices were varied and delicious. This will become a regular choice for our evenings dining out!
Consistently delicious food in an elegant room. I’ve been dining here for years and never been disappointed.
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.
Food not worth the price you pay
Bishops never disappoints. Our fave restaurant in the city!
Excellent place to fine dine. Everything is done to the finest detail.
Charming local restaurant serving excellent food & impeccable service. John Bishop himself was an extremely interesting & welcoming host.
Excellent, as usual.
Superb evening with friends who have also enjoyed this restaurant for over 30 years!
It’s been a long time since my last visit but this was exceptional. Truly the best customer service and attention to detail I’ve seen in a long time.
We always enjoy an evening at Bishops and have never experienced
anything but excellence.
Gorgeous oysters, leek and pork soup, beet salad and duck confit! We loved the pear dessert and the cheese plate too! Fantastic evening... Highly recommend.....
THE BEST! No one does it better than John and his team!
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.
Bishops as always is a very pleasant dining experience and saves us the need to go across a bridge
Service is always top notch.
Always nice to see all the same people.
Food is Always better then I remember.
Our favourite romantic spot!
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.
