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.

We had a lovely evening at Bishop's! The dinner was amazing -- we started with the amuse bouche, followed by oysters, a green salad and the halibut, and then finished off with local strawberries and vanilla ice cream. The staff were very attentive which made for a very memorable meal.

It was a pleasure to to see John Bishop once more. It was also great to learn that, owing to the respite from Corona19, John is going to stay on a bit longer.

Great food; great service!!!...Vancouver will miss Bishops when it is gone!...the halibut and tenderloin were delicious; unfortunately the featured appetizers were just ok...stick to the menu and you will have a wonderful experience.

This was our first time at Bishops. We had heard very good reports and finally got an opportunity to visit. We were not disappointed. Many times when a place is highly recommended it is hard for an establishment to live up to the billing but I am pleased to say Bishops did. Well done.
A very pleasant and memorable evening.

every dinner at Bishop's is memorable. The food is always good and the service relaxed yet attentive. We were there to celebrate my birthday and my 3 year old managed to sit through a 2 1/2 hour meal and thoroughly enjoyed the food as well.

This was the best way to get back into Vancouver restaurants again! Dinner was perfect and the service was just as prefect! Very different with the servers wearing masks but did not affect my experience! Way to go Bishop and I wish you would stay with us for another 20 years!

Great experience for Father’s Day! I know that John announced he was closing the restaurant but I just can’t imagine Vancouver without Bishop’s! Hoping he might reconsider and stick around a bit longer. Would love to bring my baby girl to enjoy his food!

We had a most enjoyable evening at Bishops!! The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. All the servers were exceptionally friendly and helpful and maintained such professionalism you don’t see all that often these days. John Bishop came to our table and I think he visited every table and We had a nice but brief conversation, he was very gracious! Overall I recommend getting in to this restaurant before it closes. Vancouver is loosing a truly wonderful restaurant And I am sad to see it go.
