We did the omakase option which was a little pricy but there was plenty of food. Overall it was a good quality meal. Our server was fantastic.
Server kept disappearing in the back. Took a long time to get anything and even to order anything.
we were treated so well! the food itself was outstanding but the service really took the experience above and beyond. our cocktails took a little longer than usual, and our server brought us two short lagers to tide us over in the meantime.
we got the heirloom carrots, mushroom ravioli, mussels, and the lemon curd spruce tip tart. everything was magnificent. we couldn’t have asked for a more delightful meal. thank you so much!
I've been to Wildebeest's for Brunch several times, and am always happy with the food. Last week, we were particularly fond of the seasonal (apple chestnut) Buttermilk pancakes- they were excellent. However, the avocado toast was on the bland side. Drinks were good, as always. Service is excellent.
Wildebeest has been my go to for special occasions for years now. Consistently fantastic food, great ambiance and amazing bar program.
Had a lovely brunch. Portions just right and food very good. Lovely server even tried to help us find a flea market. Well done.
It wasn’t as food as it was the previous times. The bacon was almost raw.
We had a lovely experience - we even did the marrow luge!
Excellent food, with an ever changing menu - and unfailingly great service.
Outstanding! The dishes were delicious and perfect for sharing.
This was a new restaurant for us. I brought my 2 kids and husband with me. The service was amazing. Our host and many others were very informative and thorough. We tried the ‘Chef’s Choice and was extremely happy that we went that way. Even my youngest, who is super picky, wanted to try everything. We would come back again and highly recommend if for a great night out.
my experience was very fantastic food was okay.
i can tell that one chef is missing cuz food was not what it was in 2017.
While the menu is somewhat limited, everything we ate was delicious and unique. There is a great selection of wine and cocktails and the servers were very attentive and great at explaining the dishes. Definitely will go back.
Awesome fooooooood loved the beef tongue!
Absolutely wonderful experience. We love this place and would come back every time they have a chef special tasting menu - It was incredible. The chocolate mousse was one of the best things I've ever eaten.
The dining experience did not reflect the price tag. The food was mediocre. I made a reservation, it was a Tuesday night, the restaurant wasn’t full, and yet they sat us right in front of the bright and noisy kitchen. The server, nothing personal, but wasn’t very graceful or well put together which did not make the experience feel upscale. The food was decent but nothing to write home about, again, especially given the price. Overall, the value just wasn’t there for me.
The chef is imaginative, the serving staff are delightful, and the decor is unique.
I love that we were put in front of the kitchen assembly line! We came for brunch... I had the breakfast spread, with Avocado Toast (Interesting!). They give you roasted avo and you make your own on the sourdough. It is cool that they butcher their own menu items in house.."farm-to-table" is what it's called. Only thing, being that they have a cool brunch-ish menu and vibe, I was surprised to find out they didn't have a machine to make latte's, cappuccinos etc... weird (Only espresso drip).Don't think that's negative though, everything else is wonderful, overall would recommend! I want to try this out for dinner.
Quite a poor experience tonight despite the special menu tasting quite good.
We tried the game and mushroom tasting menu tonight as it sparked my interest with the ingredients.
I asked to see if there was any nuts that I was allergic to in any of the remaining dishes, as the menu only mentioned hazelnuts (which I am not allergic to). The server returned and said that it would be okay as the only dish with nuts were hazelnuts.
It was about 40 minutes between the first meal and the second meal. When the cutlery came out, it had already been 30 minutes since our previous plates had been taken away and we were simply told “sorry for the wait”. 10 minutes later, when we received our food we were told that the dish was remade to adapt for the allergy (despite being told it was okay already??). Repeat the wait for the next dish where we were also apologized to for the wait, which was another 30 minutes.
The table beside us of 8 had been served 3 sets of meals before our third meal had arrived — our PRESET meal.
The food was quite good however, with the duck scotch egg being my favourite of the game & mushroom menu. The tortellini was good but smaller portioned, and the game pie was a little sweet for my liking. The dessert was quite odd and could have used a tad less truffle but was interesting to taste.
All in all, I suspect Wildebeest has some great other dishes on their main menu but I will not be returning due to the poor timing and service. Even with a reservation, the time it took for all our dishes was far too long to spend waiting with no food, especially on a special occasion. Just left frustrated.
Very good meal with excellent service and setting. Would highly recommend for a nice evening meal out.
incredible dining experience, would not hesitate to recommend and will be sure to go back next visit to the city.
A fantastic food and beverage experience. Beyond my expectations, I wasn't sure what to expect when I decided to go here, but from the moment we walked in the door the night was outstanding.
The bartender made us drinks throughout the night specific to our tastes and melded perfectly with the food.
The mushroom and game special was amazing on the palette, and each a completely different party in my mouth.
I appreciated the attention to detail in every way from the outstanding service, to the care with which the food was made and delivered.
I will definitely return; the regular menu looks to good not to try.
Went for a mushroom & game Wednesday set menu, recommended by friends, both of us were not impressed at all, food & service was mediocre
Sever left dirty dishes on multiple occasions through the evening and meal courses. Server didn’t attend to our table at all. The bills took over 20 mins to split between 4 people. Not that difficult
Dinner at WildeBeest was great. After telling my fiancee that would be going here without her (we live in Calgary), she was actually a little sad. She loves this place too. She highly recommended the bone marrow started (which I actually second). Our waiter was a little rude and definitely missed a few steps in the process. They were offering a set menu that he didn't introduce. We only discovered that it was a fixed price menu when we tried to order our mains (from a manager). He also fought with one of our more parched guests over a bottle of sparkling water. First he insisted that they didn't offer full bottles of sparkling water, then wouldn't give him a bigger glass before finally relenting and putting a bottle on the table for us. Other than the service, our experience was great. I'd suggest that should you sit down at a table being served by a slimy looking mustachioed Englishman, perhaps ask to trade sections...
Fantastic 6 plate sitting based on seasonal mushrooms and select choice Game!
Beautiful descriptions of each plate from the staff and great detail to the care for customer comfort!
My wife and I went there for our first for "brunch"... We had reservations for 10 am and were promptly seated. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable with the menu. The ambiance and decor was to our liking and there were quite a variety of age groups inside the restaurant. Our food arrived in timely fashion and we were not disappointed with the taste.... portions could be a bit larger. We shall book a dinner time for our next visit. We did not order any alcohol with our brunch but they seem to have a nice variety of wines and spirits.
Good vibe and interesting cocktails but when ordering a classic like a bourbon sour it was a fail. Food was mostly tasty but nothing stood out, carpaccio was especially disappointing. For the price I expect to be dazzled and everything just generally fell flat. Go for drinks and go somewhere else for dinner.
Great food and music soundtrack. Waiter was awesome. Other servers did not speak loud and clearly enough to understand. Very positively be experience overall.
The wild tasting menu was absolutely stunning! It was really difficult to pick a favourite because everything was so tasty and cooked to perfection. Service was a amazing as well. Timing, execution, and pairings were wonderful as well.
If I had to find fault with anything it would be that as a person of shorter stature, I always find tall chairs as dining seating extremely uncomfortable. One has to sit back and let the feet dangle or lean forward all night which is hard on the lower back.
Total rip off, food awful, noisy, poorly managed. Should be quarantined
Amazing! We did the tasting menu and were not disappointed.
Great experience & flavours of food are amazing. Will be coming back for sure
WIldebeest has been a must stop for the past four years we have been coming to Vancouver. The food, service has always been great and has never disappointed. We were accompanied by four friends that had never been and they thanked me for recommending the restaurant. AND, I did not buy their meal:)
With the new menu (possibly new chef?) I wasn't terribly impressed. Poached eggs were perfect, good quality ingredients but yet something seemed lacking. My corned beef hash was overly salty 😟
We loved our server Micheal. He was really friendly and knowledgeable as well as made us feel welcome and cared for. We did the set menu which was a bit of a splurge but was totally worth it. They listen to your dietary restrictions and your favorite flavors and then craft a bunch of different plates that you will love and be excited to try. The rest of the staff was really lovely as well. The drinks were amazing (we had a few glasses of wine, a cocktail, and a glass of bubbly). Thank you so much for an amazing experience. We will definitely come back next time we are in Vancouver for the weekend!
As always this restaurant did not disappoint, the dishes are extraordinary! Service was excellent-super friendly and attentive! It was so delicious-a flavour journey on each plate! Highly recommend this place-our favorite restaurant in Vanvouver!
We had an amazing evening celebrating my husbands Birthday. Will definitely come back again.
Food and service were excellent. Really like how the server took extra time to entertain my daughter.
