Elegant without being pretentious, Bishops is always a best choice to take guests for a guaranteed rave dining experience. The menu is not huge but always creative and excellent. One thing I like it that it is not far but out of the downtown area so parking is not a chore.

John Bishop's understated restaurant has won a steady run of accolades from foodie Vancouverites for many years. His personal unassuming manner and great sense of humor infuse his small location. The food is first class as is the service. It never fails to please.

I've dined at Bishop's for both personal and business dinners. I've always been impressed. While "best meals ever" are always a combination of the food and who you enjoy it with, I can say that the best meal I've had in Vancouver was at Bishop's with friends. Bishop's is appropriate for smaller business dinners (it is a small and intimate... More

Bishop's won the Governor Generals Award in Celebration of the Nation's Table in 2010. Of all the restaurants in Canada, I think that is quite a feat.

Came here for our friends' b-day dinner. Service was slow. Took a while for the waiter to come back to our table to take our orders. Same happened with refilling our water. Not sure where the raves came from but my wife and I were disappointed with the food. We will not come back.

We had reservations for two people at 7 p.m. on a Thursday evening to celebrate my friend’s birthday. This was my fifth time to this restaurant in the past few years. I enjoy coming here for special occasions due to the intimate atmosphere and it’s usually quiet enough so we can have a decent conversation. The service and food have... More

Bishop's rides on the reputation reflected in some of these reviews: "guaranteed A+ food and service;" "as good as there is. . ." Expensive, but worth it. And I have no doubt that this reputation has been well-earned. Whether it's still being earned, consistently, night by night, is perhaps another question. Our recent -- not very happy -- experience at... More

I had a fantastic dinner at Bishop's. I have heard good things how great of a restaurant it is for years and it did not disappoint. Definitely a place to go to celebrate a special occasion or just because. First of all the service was excellent. The food was superb. Besides the prawn appetizer I tried their daily special of...

Apart from the fact that the place is crazy crowded there was nothing that we did not like at the place. Right from the food to the service was good. The flavors were right and the portions were appropriate to leave you filled and then the coffee was strong and good too.
