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.

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.

This was my first visit to this restaurant.
Suggested having dinner here as had a friend from California visiting who is a real 'foodie'.
Food was delicious and well presented, good wine too !
Lovely ambiance along with a cosy and beautifully decorated dining room,
with very tasteful Native Canadian art on the walls.
Full praise to the staff as they were all extremely professional, very knowledgeable about the menu and attentive without beIng invasive - and our server was lovely :)

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

This was our first visit at Bishop's and we look forward to going back at some point. The most outstanding aspect is the exceptional service/friendliness and relaxing ambience. The food was very good, particularly the seafood. Was a bit disappointed with the short ribs however; everything else was quite memorable. Loved the creativity being exercised in the kitchen. Special efforts to acknowledge our anniversary were very thoughtful and much appreciated!

Very enjoyable experience. While the food isn't "blow your mind good," it is very good, and prepared exceptionally well. I've had better at top-notch restaurants, which this is. The service, however, is unparalleled- in Vancouver anyway. Highly recommended.

Bishop's is our favourite restaurant for special occasions. The food is delicious, the ambience friendly, the service impeccable. We have never had a restaurant experience that we have enjoyed more anywhere in the world (and we have travelled a lot)

Everything was fabulous! The one minor complaint we had was that, for the price, the appetizers were a bit disappointing. John Bishop was a wonderful host, as usual, and all of the serving staff were top notch. My sable fish was to die for!

Other than Le Cinq in Paris, this is my favourite restaurant anywhere, certainly my favourite in Vancouver. Birthdays, anniversaries or any other special occasions will always mean a reservation at Bishops for my wife and I. The food, service and ambience is truly impeccable.

I have experienced much better service at Bishops then what we got on Friday. It was disappointing and surprising.
Also i have had the halibut there a few weeks ago that was moist and flaking. mine this time was dry. The other people at the table who are foodies however were happy with their meals.

The caring and service @ Bishops is still very high quality. Led by John who still takes the time to visit all diners and this makes it feel special. The food presentation and cooking continues To be good. My only criticism would be the amount of food on some dishes is quite small.

Bishop's is a lovely room--perfect for a special occasion. However, the food--I had the Sablefish my fiancee had the steak--was humdrum. There are better food and better value elsewhere. But the room itself and the ambience is second to none.
