Very poor indeed
Submitted Tuesday, December 20, 2011 - 12:15am [Dine in]

Our hotel concierge directed us to this little place around the corner for a quick bite. We had reasonable salads but our main courses were awful and the server did not seem to care. The linguini pesto had cream in it which is simply not how it should be made and the linguini with fish was equally poor. A word to the wise.

Unexpected delight
Submitted Tuesday, December 20, 2011 - 12:07am [Dine in]

After being sent to a truly awful West End restaurant by the hotel concierge we were sceptical when were sent here. It is so off the beaten path and in a very residential neighbourhood. This place is truly charming and reminiscent of places we have been to in Europe and parts of New York. The food itself is some of the best we have had this year. As we were seated we were served olives and fresh focaccia bread obviously just out of the oven. So good we asked (and cheerfully received) seconds. We enjoyed the lobster risotto and the shortribs for our main courses and my husband had an incredible salmon salad for his appetizer. Apparently they smoke the salmon themselves. The lobster is tender and juicy and the risotto simple and flavorful. The shortribs are melt in the mouth wonders. We shared a chocolate mousse for dessert and again we were amazed by the flavors and the presentation. Everyone we met was so friendly and helpful and they all knew their products well. The wine list is somewhat short but full of good well priced surprises. The room is cozy and comfortable and quiet when we were there but started to get busy as we were leaving.
We will be back here one day for sure. Highly recommend to those of you who are locals and haven't discovered this place yet!

Bishop's Restaurant2183 West 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Worth every penny
Submitted Sunday, December 11, 2011 - 11:19pm [Dine in]

Friends told us we must visit Bishops before we leave Vancouver and we were very pleased that we came.
The food is fresh and delicious and the chefs have a very light hand with the seasonings so that flavors shine through. The owner came by to say hello to us and he is such a charming host. The service is professional yet friendly. This is a unique restaurant and very worth the visit. We will come back next time we are in town.
