For our first time in Vancouver we followed prior generally excellent Trip Advisor recommendations to give this restaurant a try.....and were not disappointed. Table service was excellent. Appetizers, and entrees our group of 4 adults chose were memorable.

“Lost its focus”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Bishops has long been one of Vancouvers best restaurants. Lately is has lost its creativity.
The food is fine, but down from what it has been. Staff are very pleasant and service is excellent.

“Excellent in every way.”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

John Bishop is a consummate host. He obviously picks high quality people, trains them well and motivates them highly. I guess he buys the best food ingredients as well because the food here is to the highest standards. Its interesting if not a little surprising to experience such a top end operation in what at first sight seems a little surburban site.
If you read this Mr Bishop or Maitre D' Abel, thanks for giving us the best didning experience of our Vancouver visit. A meal at Bishop's is very, very highly recommended.

“The Finer Things”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Bishop's is a true experience in fine dining. In a city where you could be charged top dollar for trashy meals prepared and served by know-nothing high school dropouts, Bishop's is a bastion of excellence in dining. Everything is just right. Fresh, local, wonderful ingredients. Elegant, knowledgeable serving staff. Gorgeous dining room. My pick for the best place to take someone special. You will NOT be disappointed.
