Let's start with the obvious, this is not your average restaurant. The food here is for foodies and has some definite Asian influences. That being said I'm sure that you've never tried most of the food available here. Extensive wine and beverage list. I would recommend that you do the tasting menu because for the price you will leave stuffed and perhaps even left overs as we did. It's not cheap, this place has the ambiance and service to match the price that you pay though, and the food is some that you will never try anywhere else. Recommended and would go again. Came for my mom's birthday and she loved it.

Great experience. Our server suggested a tasting menu and wine pairing for dinner otherwise we would have been lost as we didn’t know half of what was being described!

It was the perfect choice and a wonderful experience outside our normal comfort zone.

Highly recommend Pidgin and Sarah was the best server ever!

Love this restaurant. It's one of my favorites in Vancouver. Unfortunately this time we felt ill from dinner, perhaps from the large clams.

We had the tasting menu and we were blown away by the quality and service. Every serving had a unique flavour, story and texture. It’s truly a culinary paradise with servers and cooks that clearly love their craft.

Definitely pick dishes to share. The fois gras was generous and amazing, as was risotto and peppers. But our fav dish of the night was the mushrooms. As for service, it was about as good as it verts. Friendly, personal but not too overbearing.

Everything was perfect, we arrived late evening after work. The kitchen was closing and our server helped us plan our meal. We had cocktails, appetizers, shared a salad and main paired with a delicious wine. We’ll be back!

We went on a Wednesday night which was pretty slow, my dish my awesome, the beef short rib, my friends however not so much, chicken karaage and rice cake. The bartender was great and made a custom cocktail which was amazing.

My husband and I were in Vancouver for my birthday; we had our first meal in the city at pidgin and it did not disappoint! We had the tasting meal, which consisted of eight phenomenal courses. My favorite was the beet salad and the fish entree; my husband loved the mushrooms and the meat (duck) entree. We lacked for nothing—the meal was impeccable and the dishes were all amazing. The service was great! I highly recommend this place for any occasion!

The food was good, service was a bit ... cold..? Maybe we were a bit loud - but the restaurant was full of chatter as well...

It made me feel a bit unwelcome, although food was worthwhile!

Restaurant & Essen waren ausgezeichnet. Als Tourist muss man allerdings wissen, dass sich das Restaurant in einer Straße befindet, in deren unmittelbarer Umgebung sich fast ausschließlich Obdachlose & Rauschgift-Süchtige bewegen. Daher war der Weg zur Adressen für uns als Unkundige vor Ort teilweise recht befremdlich. Ein paar Straßen weiter war dann, zumindest von Außen betrachtet, die Welt wieder „in Ordnung“.

Food was spectacular, as usual. Our waiter was a bit of a know-it-all, and his attitude was off-putting. But the actual service was excellent. It would be helpful if the person who explained what each dish was had a better command of English, and didn't speak so softly. In a crowded restaurant, practically whispering doesn't work. Couldn't get what she was saying. Fell in love all over again with the oyster shots, and the shishito peppers.

Came here while on vacation to Vancouver. Came with rave reviews from friends but was the biggest letdown I've experienced in a long time. Tasting menu lacked creativity and was downright disappointing. I've maybe complained 2 times in my life to the manager about the quality of the food...and this was one of them. Avoid, don't listen to the earlier help reviews. This place is finished and trying to cash a check.
