Regional American (Northwest)
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 flavors with a casual elegance that keeps clients coming back for a truly exceptional dining experience.

Bishop's will seen be closing its doors for good. I recommend that anyone who has enjoyed Bishop's great food, stellar service, and warm environment try to visit one last time before the end of the year. Bishop's will be truly missed.

Everything was outstanding. From the moment we walked in to leaving. The food looks and tastes exquisite. I will miss Bishops and everything it stands for when John Bishop retires. Sigh...

Loved the experience, glad we were able to go before John Bishop closes. The entrees could have had a few more vegetables but aside from that, everything else was perfect! Thank you so much!

Always lovely in service and ambiance and this visit was no different. The food was delicious with outstanding flavours. It was a birthday dinner during the time of Covid and for two blissful hours we were able to forget all about it. Sad to see this wonderful restaurant close, at the end of this year, but understand that all good things must eventually come to an end.

Our evening was a most delightful experience. Food was delicious, beautifully presented and service was top notch. Food was cooked to perfection. Will point out that if you’re on a special diet they will accommodate.

Had a wonderful evening with a friend.
We “dressed up” a bit and somehow dressed up our conversation a bit too.
Wonderful food, flavours, textures, temperature, etc.
Just like “the before times.”
Thanks

Went for a date night with my husband, wanting the chance to dine before they close for good. The food was outstanding and the servers were lovely. I overheard another customer giving the server a hard time about covid safety measures of not being able to take coats but the server handled it appropriately. The chef provided a couple bonus tasters over the period of the meal which I thought was a nice touch. We had the crab and salmon cake to start which had the perfect crusting for a crab cake and great flavours. My husband had the halibut, also with a beautiful crusting. I had the duck with a fantastic sauce and these perfectly cooked potatoes, a simple ingredient but I have never had a potato cooked so perfectly, it added to the overall flavours and textures of the dish. We finished with the dessert special which was a refreshingly sweet lemony finish. Sadly this will likely be our last meal here due to the close but I hope to hear about a future endeavour of the chef.

As expected, this was a wonderful dining experience. 2 things detracted: foul smell upon entry, like there had been a flood at one time; and the food was noticeably salty. I contacted the restaurant the next day but did not get any reply, so I am telling you here. Cheers!

Nice atmosphere, easy to find parking on street, really good service, small place with few tables so not noisy. Menu is small and simple, maybe too simple.

Perfect in almost every respect. However, the mood lighting was far too dim. I am intensely annoyed when I cannot read the menu without difficulty.

I rarely write reviews but am compelled to in this case. This is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to, anywhere. From the service to the ambience to the food - tasty, cooked perfectly and the star of the show - everything was consistent and amazing. It might not have the flair and trendiness of the newest hot spots, or the prime location downtown, but Bishop’s is second to none when it comes to the Vancouver dining scene.

We were greeted warmly at the entrance. Our table was not ready at the time of our reservation because the previous guest were still chatting and the host offered us wine while we waited.

The staff were all very attentive and knowledgeable with all the specials.

It was a wonderful experience and the food was perfect.

They also threw in a little surprise at the end to celebrate my wife’s Birthday.

It’s sad to know they will be closing it’s doors at the end of the year. We definitely want to go there again before they close shop.
