The fare at Bishop's is regional and seasonal. In restaurateur John Bishop's view, it makes sense to showcase British Columbia's lush bounty of seafood, organic produce and meats. His exquisite West Side restaurant blends classic and modern flavours with a casual elegance that keeps clients coming back for a truly exceptional dining experience.

It was my 2nd time there. Both were for birthday celebrations. Bishops is probably the best restaurant I have been to in Vancouver. I had a risotto appetizer and then fish for main that was perfectly prepared. My friend had oysters for main and then more for desert. She loves them that much.

In the thirty+ years we have been going to Bishop's the quality and tastes have always been consistently excellent. John greets guests by name, always has a few moments to catch up and share a story and ensures that the guests are treated in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. The restaurant is never crowed with lots of room between tables so that there is always a feeling of intimacy. I would not hesitate to rate Bishop's as the top restaurant in the city.

With a menu that is always changing to use the best local, seasonal ingredients, masterfully prepared, Bishop's never disappoints.
Perfect, friendly, genuine service.
Warm candlelit atmosphere is perfect for a romantic evening or conversation with friends.

Bishop's touched all the bases, service, quality of food, ambiance. We arrived early to later attend a show at UBC and everything went smoothly, not rushed but still had a very romantic dinner including a fantastic bottle of wine. Thanks to maestro John Bishop, who visited every table multiple times, he even shucked our oysters for us. Thanks for every detail of our experience.....

Second time at Bishop's, and certainly worth the repeat. John met us at the door, and was very congenial, as always. Tables are intelligently placed, and not too close to one another. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive without being pushy. The food: excellent. Yes, it is pricey, but worth it. I'll go again.

We ate at Bishop's in the 80s, it was wonderful then and happily, still wonderful when we dined there last week (we live in northern BC) The service was attentive , but not intrusive, the Bishop's Manhattan was delicious, the food was lovely; a very good dining experience.

Lovely ambiance along with a cosy and beautifully decorated dining room,
with very tasteful Native Canadian art on the walls.

John Bishop is the consummate host and year in and year out he and his team at Bishop's produce one of the best food and service experiences in the city. It is like being at an elegant dinner party with good friends with impeccable service

John Bishop's wonderful spot on W. 4th ave in Kits is always a pleasure. Specializing in West Coast Cuisine, it never disappoints. Fine dining, candlelight, starched white linen table cloths, the scene is set for a memorable dining experience. Great care is taken by handcrafting every item on the plate and the variation of accouterments never disappoints. John stops by every table personally to say hello and thanks each guest personally for spending the evening at his quaint fine dining establishment. The collection of West Coast art is as diverse as the menu offerings. It is a small, carefully selected menu featuring the finest and freshest ingredients available. Always a delight.

This elegant timeless gem is a real credit to Vancouver's fine dining scene. John Bishop is the consummate host, front of the house staff are knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The kitchen is a credit to John's ability to recognize and develop talented, creative chefs. The beautiful restaurant is very comfortable with outstanding art and decor. We had a perfect evening.

An absolutely wonderful evening. Service was impeccable. Warm, friendly, welcoming and efficient from the moment we walked in through the door to the time we left the restaurant. Food was delicious and gorgeously presented. There were five of us and we all ordered something different for our main courses. Each entree was excellent. It was so lovely to enjoy a quiet meal without all that noise other restaurants seem to pride themselves on. We could talk to each other without having to shout, and we could hear each other clearly and easily. A perfect meal in a perfect setting. It doesn't get better than this.

We had not been to bishops for awhile and were very disappointed in the lack of variety in the food. Lacked colour and flavour, our partridge was also over cooked. One goes to bishops for excellence this experience was far from that especially at the price
