The food was magnificent, the staff and owner were friendly and attentive. Its a great place for an event, sad that this place is closing down now.
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.
Amazing food, everything was delicious and really nice staff!
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...
Just Lovely. It will remain my special place even after the retirement.
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.
Great food and service. I’m glad to be able to come one more time before the restaurant closes end of the year.
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.”
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!
The service is seamless and professional and the quality and preparation of the ingredients allows the individual components to shine without overwhelming. From start to finish a remarkable meal!
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.
Great restaurant! Sad to see it closing down at the end of 2020
Beautiful food, sustainably sourced in the ambiance of a quietly elegant room. Thanks John & colleagues 🙏
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.
We also love going to Bishops. The service has always been excellent and the food is amazing. We are always made to feel special
Best damn dinner I have had in ages. Maybe a bit pricey, but seriously great food and experience.
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.
Fantastic as always...Bishop’s will be sorely missed.
As always, this Team and restaurant keep all at the highest level in dinning experiences.
A truly wonderful experience. Professional and friendly service. Impeccable. Food is absolutely fabulous.
The servers were very professional and attentive when necessary. The food was so good! Especially the crab/salmon cakes! I'm sad they are closing end of the year.
Always amazing 😍🤩looking forward to our next dinner in December ♥️
It was a wonderful evening! The food and service were impeccable!
Incredible experience as usual. All details are paid attention to. Service is outstanding. The food is amazing.
A wonderful evening - dinner was delicious, recommended wine perfect and service fabulous. Thank you so much.
If you want delicious food In a lovely, quiet setting with wonderful service this is the place to choose.
Everything was first rate! We had a wonderful time and will miss this restaurant when it closes at the end of the year.
I recommend Bishop's without reservation!
restaurant very amazing to celebrate an exceptional occasion
Absolutely a 5 star evening every time we dine at Bishops. The staff are warm and friendly, and the food is divine! See you soon!
Overall very good. Price point and expectations set a high bar- service was excellent.
Outstanding overall - and we will miss this wonderful restaurant.
We truly enjoyed our meal and dining experience at Bishop's. The service was impeccable and the wine knowledge was excellent. The only complaint was that the halibut was a bit dry.
A Vancouver Classic for a wonderful meal in an elegant and relaxed setting.
So sad that this restaurant will be closing. Wishing John Bishop the best in retirement
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.
As usual, attentive service, fabulous food and great overall atmosphere. Really going to miss this place!!!
