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!
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.
Food was delicious, fresh and seasonal! Abel and Jodie were very friendly and helpful and Chef Bishop even came by our table a few times. We will definitely be back.
This is probably our favourite restaurant in Vancouver. Great food and wonderful people.
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.
Great food with excellent service. Would request the upper room next time for the artwork and coziness factor
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.
Cosy environment. Warm and good service. Food is good . Wine is good . Worth to introduce to friends and I will definitely come back again with my friends and relatives.
This is still the standard bearer for great dining, beyond merely fine dining, in Vancouver after 34yrs.
Excellent Dining Experience in great setting in the middle of Kitsilano.
The food is outstanding and service first class!
It was a lovely evening Everything was perfect from the moment we entered the restaurant
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 :)
Excellent food well prepared and presented. Service was impeccable as it always is.
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
Birthday dinner. Great place as usual, however, prefer a regular menu eat this restaurant over pre-fix.
Had an amazing dinner with the best service. Gluten friendly & the food was outstanding.
Appies were outstanding, entres OK (black beans undercooked and potatoes very dry), desserts disappointing. Great wine and top notch service.
A lovely evening with attentive and knowledgeable staff. Food was delicious and presented nicely. All around great experience. Thanks
Excelente comida y servicio. Carta de vinos notable.
Fabulous service and food!
My favorite restaurant
Fantastic food and service. This is a must whoever we visit vancouver.
Still the best restaurant in town to celebrate something special AND have an amazing meal!!
We always enjoy our meals at Bishop's. We have been coming here for many years.
Went here for a date with my husband. Everything was perfect. The service is top notch. Would defiantly recommend.
lavacake was a bit dry but other than that loved everything about Bishop’s. def will return again in the future.
Bishop's never disappoints! From the time you are greeted at the front door to the time you leave, you are taken care of. Lovely meal, great wine.
It is one of Vancouver's crown jewels
