Elegant, intimate and one of the city's top restaurants, this spot is perfect for a quiet evening out with friends or a romantic dinner. This quiet, spare decor may at first seem unimpressive, but the gourmet West Coast cuisine and famously personalized service make it glitter. It was good enough for Clinton and Gorbachev when they were in town. The menu changes weekly, but past selections have included Saltspring Island Mussels steamed in Sake, and Roasted Duck Breast with Navy Bean Cassoulet.
The service was impeccable and attentive.
The food was fresh, well made, and came out of the kitchen just right.
An intelligent wine list. I liked how Bishop himself came straight to the table to check up on it and our satisfaction. this is truly the sign of a good restauranteur to take care in the quality and presentation of his food.
Some might call the restaurant cosy, but I found the space constricting and tight.
The decor in orangy peach shades and green was not to my taste. I found the bathroom to be dated. Truthfully, I thought the place needed an update, a freshening up, or a renovation.
This was my first visit, and while I thought the restaurant was a good one, it won't be on my list to go back because of the decor.
This was our third visit to Bishop,s.The service was impeccible and the food excellent.John Bishop always visits each table and checks on the clients satisfaction. this touch makes this restaurant one of Vancouver,s finest.I would recommend this establishment to anyone who visits Vancouver.
I loved Bishop's from my very first visit when living in Vancouver. I would eat there about once a month and had incredible service and food every time. After moving back to the US I went back to Bishop's a few years later and when I walked in they remembered me by name-I was shocked. That night my boyfriend (now husband) proposed at my favorite restaurant any where in Canada and the US. The sable fish and the Death by Chocolate dessert are especially good. If in Vancouver, Bishop's is the place to go.
