The food was amazing and the wait staff was lovely. My only complaint was that the restaurant is surprisingly loud and the decor didn’t fit with the rest of the stunning hotel, but the food far out showed those small stumbles.

The starters were good. Oysters were were fresh. But the main course was disappointing. The steak and lobster tail were unattractive and expensive for it’s worth, close to $80 (Canadian dollars).

Our server made our experience enjoyable. Evening started with part our party being seated and a manager trying to seat a different party of 5 at our table. Manager looked confused when we told him the parties/guest aren’t related. Don’t think he was paying attention that table was set for 5 and with 2 people already seated, the party of 5 he brought over wasn’t for the same reservation. The savory items for our dinner were delicious. Scallops, steaks, sea bass and pasta, etc. perfectly made. Dessert on the other hand was quite disappointing. Too many deconstructed dessert options that did not satisfy the sweet part of the meal.

I have been to Hawksworth numerous times since it opened and actually stopped going there after 3 in a row disappointing experiences.
I decided to give it another chance this past weekend and was let down again. The service was excellent, the restaurant is beautiful. The food was most definitely not what I expect from this level of restaurant.
With so many amazing fine dining choices in Vancouver I don't see this as a loss but perhaps the directors at Hawksworth should start paying attention. The champagne was lovely though :)

First time at Hawksworth for dinner, altho have enjoyed sister restaurant Nightingale a few times. Our server was delightful but have to admit, we were disappointed in our food. The salad was just okay altho the prawn my plate smelled like an ashtray. Wish they’d mentioned the smokiness or charring on the menu as I would have ordered differently. Not the worst meal but pretty expensive to be disappointed. Not in any rush to return.

A special night out in Vancouver, looked forward to this dinner for some time. The spot prawn and crab appy was delish albeit over priced. The mains were great and the lemon tart was also amazing. An expensive night out, but a treat nonetheless.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience- excellent execution of each course. The BBQ octopus was superb (loved the burnt avocado, and the mezcal pairs really well with the kohlrabi)- caraway seeds was also a great addition to the dish. Enjoyed the sea bass; husband loved the duck. Dessert: the candy cap ice cream was the best executed dessert I’ve ever had- loved loved loved the aerated toffee. Look forward to returning the next time we visit Vancouver.

This is our third time and we were disappointed with the food. The same dish I ordered before was very soupy and our other guests also felt their dish was 'average.' We had to remind our server about the pine nut allergy twice as he forgot the first time to check with the kitchen. There was a table with 2 small children that was quite distracting. We dine at several fine dining restaurants in Vancouver and abroad and unfortunately, this experience did not meet our expectations.

Impeccable service with attentive wait staff. The tasting menu was creatively and imaginatively presented. The quality of the food was wonderful. The menu was beautifully paired with excellent wines. All in all, the meal presentation was pure theatre. Memorable. We will certainly be back.

Incredible progression of dishes and they were all delicious. The service is great and the only possible drawback is the noise level but it isn't terrible at all just not as intimate as you would expect a fine dining restaurant would be.

My second time at Hawksworth; perhaps the best restaurant in Vancouver right now. Impeccable service and delicious food. It is pricey, so I save it for very special occasions. The music was a bit loud, but we dined very early and were among the first to be seated, so there weren't a lot of other people to dampen the ambient noise. A wonderful spot for a splurge.

We were visiting Vancouver on our vacation and had seen Hawksworth on Open Table. We were also celebrating our anniversary. We were pleasantly greeted when we arrived and wished a Happy Anniversary. Our server greeted us with Happy Anniversary wishes. We appreciated the acknowledgment. The food was very good. The waiter was well versed in the items on the menu, this was helpful in making a choice. Dessert was good also. A nice pace for a special occasion.
