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.

Bishop's Ratings and Reviews
Thank heavens for John Bishop! We thank you for a perfect evening, the staff thanks you for being a wonderful place to make a career and the neighbourhood thanks you for 37 years of excellence in quality , service and extraordinary food,
We had dinner last night at Bishops while on vacation and it was a wonderful experience!! I can't say enough about the service. Everyone from the owner to the maitre d to the bartender made sure the experience was flawless.
And then there was the food. There were 4 of us so we tried a variety of items from.the menu and they were all outstanding. The food was fresh, the portions are generous, and there was a lot going on with each dish. The entrees were served with the most amazing sauces and lots of different vegetables on the plate.
Dinner at Bishops will certainly be one of the highlights of our vacation!
It was for my friend birthday dinner. We shared oysters,and bisque soup, veal for main course. We Kia to star and shared a bottle of Queil's gate Cab for main. They gave her frozen grapes because her b day.
You could hear jazz music but softly do we did not need to raise your voice. Many restaurants have loud music these days. I appreciate that quietness. Food, service excellent. I will be back.
Superb food, service and ambience. Made my friend's birthday very memorable. One of my best restaurant experiences ever. The legend of Bishop's lives on! Online booking was awesome, because I'm a night owl, so it helped me immensely that I didn't have to wake up "early" (for me) to make a same day booking.
Bishops is a must for anyone that loves great service and amazing food! I can't say enough about both!
I was celebrating my 1 year anniversary with my girlfriend and we were both blown away. Mr. John Bishop himself cut flowers for her and brought them to our table! What a surprise!
All the staff were knowledgeable about the menu and were very courteous and friendly.
The food was the best I've had, hands down! I had the lamb racks as my main and it was delicious! Every course that was brought to us was fantastic.
We will definitely be back!
As usual Bishops carries on the time honored tradition of top drawer service and excellent menus choices. The caliber of food is five star. Restaurateur John Bishop, an icon on the Vancouver scene never fails to please, don't pass up an opportunity to dine there if it's presented to you.
Bishop's lives up to its reputation. It is one of the finest fine-dining restaurants in Vancouver. The staff is very professional and formal, yet friendly. The prix-fixe menu is a superb deal...such excellent food for such a reasonable price.
Great food! Everything was extremely flavorful. The staff were kind and really helpful in choosing the approriate pairings. The restaurant atmosphere was beautiful and condusive to a proper conversation. I would definetly go there again for special and important occassions.
Everything is done so well. Excellent service starts the dining experience. Always nice to meet John Bishop. Then the food. Appetizer corn meal encrusted shrimp. Roast chicken and rack of lamb done to perfection. Death by chocolate and poached pear. My pear was accompanied by a whipped gorgonzola cheese in the shape of a dollop of ice cream. The one thing that could be improved is the house coffee.
This was an anniversary dinner from our first date in December 1980, celebrated monthly. Not always at a Bishop's, but certainly one of the best places to dine out.
Went for Dine-Out. It had been far too long since I was there, I'll be back again!
The only negative was that we were on the lower level and it was a cold/snowy night and when the door opened there was quite a draft. Otherwise great, love Bishop's!
We had a great time at Bishop's ! The service was impeccable with the servers being extremely curtious and respectful. The owner himself, Mr. Bishop's personally greeted us and we had a delighted chat. During the service he kept on coming back to our table to see if we are doing okay or not. To which we told him, it was perfect. We enjoyed the ambiance and it was a really wonder experience for us. Servers were very accommodating.
Was really looking forward to come try this restaurant. Read their review on best dine out menu for 2017. They don't say that for nothing. Service was extremely great, small restaurant but 5 star service. Food was well prepared, served all at once with good timing. Our table was ready upon arrival, highly recommend this to everyone and will come back very soon!
This dinner made me smile. Fabulous food, excellent wine - they have an amazing cellar! , attentive staff and a perfect noise level. The only thing that ruined it was my dining companion, but as I doubt you'll have the same misfortune there as me, get Bishops booked....you absolutely won't regret it!
