Had a really lovely dinner here, fixed price 3 course dinner for $75 (excluding tax & gratuity). Also had a lovely glass of Bordeaux. The portion is just right and the quality is good. I had the scallops for starter, the lamb for main, and a fantastic special summer tart with ice-cream. John came by to speak with each table and it was a delight to meet him. Ambience is cosy and romantic.

It was for my husband birthday dinner. Everyone enjoyed their dish. The service was outstanding. Very attentive and Kind. The portion was good but I gave 4 starts on the value because I wish I could get more dishes for the price maybe with less portion on each dish?

Bishop's is consistently fabulous. The food was fantastic. There is a set menu with lots of options however, very little for vegetarians. Knowing the restuarant though, if we had wanted a vegetarian main course we would just have had to ask and something fabulous would have been custom made. It's also nice to find a restaurant that serves organic meat. You'd be hard pressed to find service like this. John Bishop meets everyone at every table and talks to them as though they are friends. They are very attentive. At one stage I sneezed, and within seconds tissues were delivered to my table! Our overseas guests that we took with us could not praise the experience highly enough. Highly recommended.

Terrific meal - appetizers were perfect - scallops and foie gras, mains were a real treat - lamb loin and venison, and nicely finished with desert

Wine list was good and we picked something affordable and it was very good. Attentive and very helpful service made this a great meal

As usual, we had a wonderful meal. The food never disappoints - so fresh and seasonal! The service was perfect - very attentive without being intrusive.
The wine list could be a bit broader in the affordable range.
Overall, we have always enjoyed a special dinner at Bishops.

The service was top notch. Four our first course my wife got a blue cheese & pear salad which was excellent and I got the soup of the moment which was cauliflower. It was decadent, rich and flavorful. For our entrees we choose the Duck (which was cooked to perfection) and the Venison both were superb. For desert I got death by chocolate & my wife got the Strawberry & Rhubarb crumble which was out of this world!

Definitely one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in Vancouver, or even in Canada. The staff was attentive, assured, friendly, and knowledgeable. I loved that they did not hover, but simultaneously brought so many special touches to our anniversary dinner. We will certainly be returning!

Bishop's consistently lives up to its reputation for creative, highest quality gastronomic cuisine. Each visit is a culinary adventure of the highest standard. Waited on by at least 3 staff, it was a memorable night. Thanks for helping us keep our anniversary tradition and 10 years of great memories.

My wife and i have been coming to Bishop's once a year or so for special occasions for a very long time. It's our go-to place when we want to celebrate together. The staff are warm and highly professional, the food is outstanding and John Bishop is the consummate, erudite host, always helping us feel important and valued. He demonstrates a genuine ability to engage in thoughtful conversation and never makes us feel rushed as is the case in some many other dining establishments -- including high-end ones. We began going to Bishop's when we had little money and at the time he was gracious enough to never judge when we chose one of his less expensive wine offerings. We appreciate how he and the staff have always made us feel welcome with great food and service.

Our table for two was awaiting with a chilling split of Veuve Cliquot in this Vancouver icon to fine food and impeccable service from host John Bishop. The new menu formula simplifies ordering using a three-course French style menu containing four wonderful selections per course rather a bewildering list of mix-and-match offerings. So too with the wine list, moving a nicely-curated selection of BC and California options by glass, carafe or bottle forward and moving a very deep list of reserve wines/premiers crus to the back for wishful browsing. After a fine amuse-bouche of chicken liver pate, we ordered with an eye to sharing our starters of arugula salad and seared scallops, and our mains of lamb rack and duck breast, all very fine and offered at just the right pace: leisurely but attentive and friendly. A quiet and very happy crowd, all seemingly blissed out by the classically-prepared, locally-sourced cuisine, and friendly, expert service. Did I mention that the room offers one of the better collections of west coast indigenous art to be found in town?
Again soon, I hope!

It was a very good dinner the duck was excellent, and the cheese cake was probably the best I've ever tried. But, to my mind (I'm french, may be it can explain), it was a bit expensive, compared to the service offered. We (two persons) paid almost 190 CAD for a dinner, without even taking wine.

Our dinner and evening at Bishops was superb! Divine, delightful and incredibly delicious. I was greeted at the front door by John Bishop who is the warmest, most welcoming and sincere restaurant owner. I have huge respect and admiration for all that John has accomplished and all that he has given back to his community. We celebrated a friends 60'th birthday here and I couldn't ask for a more perfect environment! Our service was amiss ONLY because a new server, first night on the job, topped up a glass of wine with sparkling water. I have great compassion for this person and just wish the situation had been remedied in a more timely manner. Thank you, John, and all your wonderful staff!
