Bishop’s never disappoints! Happy that we were able to visit the restaurant before they close at the end of the year. Might have to go again though!
Memorable experience, both for food and ambiance. What a fabulous way to spend an evening!
Bishop’s has always been one of our favourite place to dine in Kitsilano. We have been frequenting this restaurant for over 30 years and have never been disappointed.
John Bishop always makes us feel welcome and visits our table to say hi. Abel, Bishop’s Maitre d’, has an amazing knowledge of wine and is very attentive to our every wish. He also loves soccer like us!

Great service and wonderful food - you can’t beat that combo. It was a special occasion and everyone at Bishops contributed to making it so. Thank you!
Outstanding food, elegant, refined, and professional service. I'm happy for John Bishop that he is retiring, but I'm sad that the restaurant will soon no longer be with us.
Mary Ann and I are long time diners at Bishop's and have always had good experiences with the cuisine, service and ambience.
It was a pleasure to chat with John about Robert Davidson and Bill Reid, both of whom are well known to us. A twoonie will celebrate Bill's birth 100 years ago!
We had invited a couple to sup with us, and they were of the same opinion as were we.
I am pleased that Bishop's will remain open at least until the end of December. Initially we were told Bishop's would close at the end of August.
Thank you and our compliments to the chef for an excellent dinner.
Very nice for our first time. It'll be a shame if Bishop's close.
By far...the best dinner experience we have had in years.
Delicious food and attentive servers. Meat portions were decent; however they only came with a pretty garnish of vegetables on the side. If you’re hungry, and have deep pockets, order appetizers first and a side of pommé frites- best French fries I’ve ever had in Canada! Also desserts were decadent!
It's been a dream of mine for almost three decades to visit Bishop's. Our plans were almost scuttled by the Covid-19 situation, but we were lucky enough to visit last week. It was everything I'd hoped for. We were delighted to learn that the restaurant will likely stay open for another 5 months, so we're planning a return visit.
Happy retirement, John! Well deserved after a lifetime of dedication.
Everyone should eat here at least once in their lives. An experience like no other.
Very memorable evening, great staff and top notch food.
Great to be back. Impressed with how well Covid protocols were managed and adjusted to!!
Exceptional experience at all levels, highly recommended
Great place. Service impeccable. Hate to lose it when Mr Bishop retires.
Service absolutely spot on
Social distancing measures also excellent
Felt very safe and well taken care of
The food was delicious! Every dish was well done
Loved the seasonal spot prawns
And dessert, the Death by chocolate mmmmm
Everything you'd expect from Bishops, and more. Socially distanced tables means more intimate dining.
Better hurry. They're closing at the end of the year.
amazingly genteel staff, delicious food, great ambiance! felt safe because they all wore masks.
My partner and I first went to Bishop's when I was 30 years old and it was my first fine dining experience.
Fast forward 20 years, and here we were again enjoying Bishop's last year in business!
The food was delicious and lovely to look at, and the service was attentive, knowledgeable, and kind.
Wonderful experience, food is delicious and beautiful upon the eyes. Lovely ambience, with candles for any celebration. Friendly staff.... definitely worth it!
Wonderful atmosphere. Linen tablecloths and napkins & candlelight. Bouquets of long stem roses on side tables.
We had a great dinner. The meal was excellent and the service was perfect.
Still is the best restaurant in Vancouver - by far !
As always, pure perfection. It was lovely to see John and all the staff again after the long break.
Meal was excellent and how fortunate to be there in spot prawn season. Divine in the bisque.
Halibut exquisite. Service exceptional, as always. Planning on returning as often as possible before le grand départ...
always a pleasurable dinning experience at Bishops!
Perfect room to celebrate an anniversary. Love Bishops.
We had a lovely evening at Bishop's! The dinner was amazing -- we started with the amuse bouche, followed by oysters, a green salad and the halibut, and then finished off with local strawberries and vanilla ice cream. The staff were very attentive which made for a very memorable meal.
In some restaurants one course stands out, in Bishops all are exceptional. The service and experience even better. Vancouvers hem and #1
It was a pleasure to to see John Bishop once more. It was also great to learn that, owing to the respite from Corona19, John is going to stay on a bit longer.
Anniversary dinner , very intimate and pleasant atmosphere
It was enjoyable, quiet, delicious, and romantic!
Even more intimate and quiet during COVID-19!! Another excellent dining experience!
Great food; great service!!!...Vancouver will miss Bishops when it is gone!...the halibut and tenderloin were delicious; unfortunately the featured appetizers were just ok...stick to the menu and you will have a wonderful experience.
Always a wonderful evening. Attentive wait staff and John himself checking in with our table a number of times throughout the evening.
John you and your team never disappoint me
This was our first time at Bishops. We had heard very good reports and finally got an opportunity to visit. We were not disappointed. Many times when a place is highly recommended it is hard for an establishment to live up to the billing but I am pleased to say Bishops did. Well done.
A very pleasant and memorable evening.
Always a pleasure to go to Bishop's, elegant surroundings, beautifully curated menu of fresh local foods with a great selection of wines. The service always better than expectations.
One of our greatest dining pleasures for over 15 years now.
Stupendous meal at one of our favorite restaurants! We’re going to eat here as much as possible until the end of the year.
Thank you, Bishops, for many beautiful meals/experiences over the years! ❤️
every dinner at Bishop's is memorable. The food is always good and the service relaxed yet attentive. We were there to celebrate my birthday and my 3 year old managed to sit through a 2 1/2 hour meal and thoroughly enjoyed the food as well.
Excellent. Very accommodating. Social distancing well done
My wife and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with our two closest friends. The food, ambience & service were great & the noise level was just right.
A delightful evening had by all.
