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!

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!

As always, Bishop's delivered for an anniversary of my wife and I. The service was impeccable and so friendly; it was like dining at a friend's house. And the cuisine was wonderful, prepared with creativity and passion. Thank you Bishop's for another special evening.

We've dined at Bishop's often in past several decades. Its sustained commitment to BC and Canadian sources, its thoughtful and balanced menus, its utterly reliable good cooking--these things have brought us back again and again. On top of all that there's first-rate service at all times, done in a way that makes you think you're really "at home," not just a customer. It's grand. This is Vancouver at its best.

My boyfriend and I were celebrating a late Valentine’s Day dinner and it was our first time going to Bishops. It was the last stop for a scavenger hunt I had put together and the servers were very accommodating by putting my gift and card on our table before we arrived. The food and service were amazing! It was the perfect way to end our night.

Excellent service! Very attentive staff without interfering. Food was prepared well and very tasty. Dessert macaron lacked texture but may have been a one-off. Overall, would recommend Bishop’s for a nice evening out.

100% nice food and service. The environment is nice too. The only thing kinda sad is the 6 people seat beside me are super noisy. But it’s not the restaurant’s fault. So overall it is still a perfect place for dinner.

Bishops was still promoting their Dine Out deal, so our meal was an extraordinary deal, 3 courses for $40, and all 3 were terrific. The service was outstanding, there is more staff per customer than I’ve experienced in most other restaurants. The restaurant is classic, quiet and low key, yet the food is top notch. We’ll be back, even when Dine Out is over.

Loved everything about the experience. A really nice touch was being so very warmly welcomed by John Bishop himself, a gentleman indeed. Servers were helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Our meals were beautifully presented, and delicious. The duck was tender and delicately seasoned. Servings were generous., and dessert was over the top! I look forward to returning to this cozy dining experience.

Received by friendly restaurant staff to a nicely set table Served with drink and warm bread. There are some choices on the dine out menu. Appetizers are good particularly the soup is not an ordinary creamy one. Fresh to taste. Duck is excellent and tender. The cod is so so. It’s not really fresh to taste. The deserts are above average The restaurant space out the bookings so the kitchen can prepare foods in time for customers.

A lovely, intimate dining experience facilitated very well by Bishop's. While me and my guest went for DineOut--notoriously known for small portions--it felt nothing short of a great fine dining experience with regular sized dishes that were executed well. Needless to say, it most certainly lives up to its high ratings. Highly recommend for dates or simply, good food.

Went for the first time during dine out. And you never know how great it will be but far exceeded expectations. I had the zucchini, cod and cheesecake. Even though I’m a chocolate lover, the cheesecake was better than the brownie (I tried my friend’s). All around deliciousness.
