Food - the food was delicious. For appetizer, I had dungeness crab. The crab was made into a sort of paste, one that would go perfect with crackers. It was delicious. It was smooth, and creamy, and well seasoned. For the main course, I had the Qualicum Bay scallops. They were placed on top of very creamy mashed potatoes. I suspect they were the most creamy mashed potatoes I have ever had. On the side, were to different sauces. Unfortunately, I am not sure what they were. The scallops themselves were very meaty, but a tad bland. The sauces made up for this though. Overall this dish was delicious.
For desert, I had a bread pudding. Seeing how it was Christmas time when I dined at Bishops, the pudding was quite appropriate. It was warm, and a bit gewy. It was not too sweet, and not too un-sweet (if that makes any sense).
Wether or not the service or ambiance of a restaurant is good, as long as they have good food, they can count me in as a customer.
Service - Incredible service. My father, who's birthday we were celebrating, sneezed during dinner. Immediately, a plate with a small box of clean-ex on it, appeared beside him immediately. It was one of the waitresses who had brought it. This had never happened to us before, so we were slightly confused. When it finally registered in our brains, we were amazed at the service.
Before desert, Mr. Bishop himself brought out a plate of pair slices stacked in a spiral. Delicious as it was, Mr. Bishop seemed quite nervous. He was slightly shaking too. Unless, my parents are part of a Russian gang that possesses nuclear weapons, I don't think Mr. Bishop had anything to be worried about.
Value and Ambiance - Solid
