We were very pleased. Although this restaurant describes itself as 'North American Contemporary', it seemed altogether French to us. Not just the meal, but the overall professionalism exhibited by the servers, maître d', and other staff. It is a formal setting for Vancouver yet without the maddeningly compressed seating or clamor that seems to characterize other top-end spots. The cocktails... More

We used to go to Bishops when it first opened and we lived in Point Gray. We hadn't been for years since we moved out of Vancouver but had my husband's 80th Birthday dinner there in May. The food at Bishops was amongst the first to be 'locally sourced' and it still is. The food is delicious and reliable, well... More

We tend to avoid Dine Out because the restaurants are often too busy, the servers rushed, the guest expectations exceed what's possible and the food is ok but not great. BUT, Bishop's restored our faith in Dine Out and reminded us that it's the place to go for a special dinner. John Bishop greeted us at the door and was... More

Bishop's is a constant option for fine dining in Vancouver for me. As an out-of-town visitor it has been my go-to option for entertaining close friends and valued clients for thirty plus years. The accent is on well-prepared and plated West Coast cuisine. A comfortable two-level space, white table cloths, quality china, crystal and cutlery; and assured and discrete service... More

My husband and I had dinner on the last Saturday of Dine Out Vancouver. Food, atmosphere and service were superb. This has not been our experience at other Dine Out restaurants over the years.

The food was outstanding and even more so, the service. I comment on the service especially as we were there through Dine Out where things tend to be busy and a lot of restaurants rush you through. I am sure there was no difference in the Dine Out service and the regular service which is huge. The beef tenderloin was... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
