Eating at Hawkesbury was a treasured experience. My girlfriend and I have been dining in some highly regarded restaurants in New York City and Melbourne (Australia) over the last two months. We are also local to Vancouver (but from Melbourne and NYC) and have to say that this is the best meal we had in the previous two months across the three cities. My girlfriend is vegan (I am not), and they catered towards both our dietary requirements (I am allergic to shellfish) without fuss, and made a genuine effort to indulge us. The wines showcased interesting bottles from abroad (very rare in Vancouver), in particular, the whites from Spain and Portugal were well chosen and matched with each dish perfectly on the tasting menu. Overall this is a must dining experience if you are visiting Vancouver and shows that excellent, passionate people are always the best in this business and if you want to eat the best of what the pacific northwest has to offer.

-Prohibition was dreadfully slow and the drinks were lousy.
-The main floor lounge was ok for drinks but an order of avocado toast took 20 minutes.
-Wine selection in Hawksworth was poor and way overpriced
-Wine server lacked basic knowledge of Chardonnay wines ie unable to recommend a wine when we requested “buttery” not “oaky”.
-Sommelier knew little more.
-food was not as good as it should be considering reviews
Recommendation : invite better critics or simply pull your socks up. Way up!!!!

Don’t go to Hawksworth for Brunch on Sundays; it was disappointing. From the moment I met the hostess, the service and reception from staff was cold and unwelcoming. She was put off with having to seat me having just returned from seating my dining companions who arrived early. Our server was equally cold and not very responsive and at times abrasive when having to answer questions about the menu and address the tables concerns about dietary restrictions. The server kept leaving abruptly whenever he answered a question (this happened 3x) without taking our order. It was odd that it took us so long to order. The restaurant was not busy; the room was barely 30% full. The interiors are beautiful however the background music (electronic pop) did not match the interiors. Everything seemed incongruous with each other. The food was okay and not very good value for the prices and expectations. We would have tried the prix fixe menu however the entire table has to participate which we only found out when we ordered (the print was super fine on the menu but not noted online). Instear we had smoked salmon eggs benny. Tasted ok but was not exceptional. White Spot eggs benny would have been better with friendly service. My dining companions had a sable salad which they enjoyed, and buttermilk pancake which they were disappointed having only one pancake and had to add a sausage and was charged for syrup.

Having had their tasting menu at dinner before and enjoying it, we were expecting a similar or at least at par experience at Brunch. Don’t go for brunch. There are much better options. Perhaps that is why the room was not very busy for brunch.

Located in Hotel Georgia, attached to the Forbes Five Star hotel is this outstanding restaurant. There is certainly a reason why it was voted #1 in Vancouver. From greetings to goodbyes, each server was extremely attentive. The food was absolutely phenomenal, special note to our server Bertrain, he was very knowledgeable with the menu and recommendations. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.

Made a reservation for lunch through OpenTable for January first. But the menu was limited to brunch. Service was impeccable and accommodating. But did not get lunch ... I wish OpenTable would have made it clear about the reservation peculiarity for this date.

My favorite restaurant in Vancouver; but, this morning, I’m guessing, they had an “off day”.

The food was outstanding, as usual, but service was lacking.

This is one of the very few restaurants where I’ve consistently enjoyed almost impeccable dining experiences. I understand that not every place is always perfect and I’m hoping that I can, once again, enjoy a nearly flawless dining experience the next time I’m here. :-)

Rather expensive for portion size. Special was not very "special", in fact, the crab (the tiny amount that there was) in the benedict tasted off. For a new years day, the experience was not memorable in a positive way.

Worst experience at a “fine” Vancouver restaurant in a long time. As someone who dines out at least 5 times per week, and has frequented Hawksworth, this was a terrible experience for a birthday breakfast celebration. From the extremely rude hostess who offered no greeting and was snide, to the absentee waiter who scoffed and had his nose stuck in the sky... An embarrassing experience for an establishment which serves up amazing food.

Had an amazing time on my birthday with friends for dinner. The only reason I didn’t give the food 5 stars was because the cookies we had for dessert were really dry and hard. We thought they would be warm and fresh out of the oven. They were nice enough to remove this from our bill. The service was excellent. I will definitely be back:)

I am always pleased when I can enjoy a fine dining experience as a vegetarian. Of the 3 in our party, 2 were vegetarian. We started by sharing the Squash custard over kale, and the apple/parsnip veloute. Both were very rich, tasty. For the main course, we each at the brassica - roasted cauliflower and broccoli, served in a tomato "fondue" and fried basil leaves. It was delicious. For dessert we had the chocolate (something or another) and the meyer lemon, mandarin organge, jasmine concoction. Scrumptious!!!

We (my husband and I) had lunch reservations for Dec 24.
The restaurant and bar was very busy due to the Christmas shopping crowd. The service we received was outstanding, from the moment we arrived until our departure. We were seated in the bar until our table was ready. First-rate choices of old and new -world cocktails, fabulous presentation.
The food (we had the tasting menu) was superb, wine suggested to go with our meal was excellent and fair priced for the quality.
I recommend to experience the restaurant for lunch and/or dinner. If you are looking for great cocktails a visit to the Hawksworth bar will not disappoint you.

Food was good! Drinks were great! I didn't really like were they sat us as I felt like we were in the middle of the walk way. Every time a waiter had to go to another table they went right by us. Seating was a little cramped.
We had 9:00pm reservations and we were seated on time but about 15 min. later we received a call from the front desk of the restaurant asking us where we were. Strange as she was the one that sat us down.
Other then that it was a nice night!

As usual the Hawksworth did not disappoint. The service was great, and both our server and the sommelier were very helpful and assisted greatly in our decisions on the night. The food was spectacular. I had the duck and I honestly don't remember having better anywhere. The desserts were equally delicious and I simply enjoyed myself immensely. Thanks to everyone at the Hawksworth for another wonderful meal.
