3 dinners in Vancouver

A colleague and I are going to be in Vancouver next week. We are planning on Vij's for one night, but the other two are open. Here's the tricky bit. He likes meat, I eat meat but would like to try seafood too. He doesn't drink alcohol, I like wine with a meal. Any thoughts?

    We would recommend Bishop's and Yew (for excellent seafood). We do not like Hawksworth...mainly because of the extreme noise level in the dining room, but also because of variable food quality (from extraordinary to awful) not acceptable for such an expensive restaurant.

      Hawkworth's menu would suit your meat/seafood preferences well. It's a wonderful room, and service is spot on.

      I'm not as enthusiastic about Ensemble. Interesting food, though some dishes a bit underwhelming. Price point is good, but the service, at least the night I was there, really needed some improvement.

        I would think Hawksworth's, Bishop's, Le Crocodile and Ensemble could all provide very good meat or fish choices. Dial up your google machine and see what you think of their menus.

        Good luck
