Excellent all around. We considered this dinner a highlight of our Vancouver visit. Great service and delicious food. The cocktails were excellent. We spoke about how much we enjoy this dinner our entire two week visit to western Canada.

Have not been able to visit for three years because of COVID and eagerly awaited our return. We were delighted. Decor is unchanged and perfect for fine dining. Sound level is peaceful. General manager Amber has been there for many years, having started as a...busser 11 years ago. Her warmth and knowledge were excellent. Our server Birgitta quickly took care of all of our requests. Wine specialists Chen and Cameron were affable and helpful. Chen really put great thought into her pairings and it showed.More

We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Hawksworth restaurant after a morning of sightseeing. Recommend to make a reservation in advance. Sampled the highly TripAdvisor-recommended KFC (Korean fried cauliflower…light, savoury, neat!) and lunch prix fixe - confit duck taco (tasty), braised beef with lobster and scallop...add-ons (so incredibly tender, recommend the add-ons!) and tres leches (perfect way to cap the meal). Service was prompt, detail-oriented and courteous; we felt well taken care of with a nicely paced meal and were in/out in 75 mins. (with a toddler!). We enjoyed our dining experience and would recommend it.More

The experience was terrible. One of the servers ( his name is Erick) wasn’t interest it in our table, splash all the table with water, didn’t care for our questions so the only thing that was good enough was the food, but even if you...have an awesome food at the end of the night a poor and lame service can make the whole evening terrible.More

I returned to Hawkworth for the 3rd (and probably last) time today. To their credit, the staff recognized me as the author of a very critical review written after my last visit, which I've since deleted. EC David Hawksworth came out to introduce himself and...discuss my prior review. He said he and his staff felt insulted by my prior review, but he was a perfect gentleman about it and acknowledged that some of my criticism were not without legitimate basis. I'm quite passionate about food but admittedly a bit eccentric in that I take great offense when chefs compromise taste for the sake of presentation. A Michelin star is actually a red flag for me, so my taste is clearly not typical. David and his staff are doing a fabulous job of giving most fine dining patrons exactly what they want. Every dish is visually enticing and almost anyone would have an "Oh, wow!" reaction. The food is not to my taste at all, but like I said, I have a pet peeve about undue emphasis on presentation at the expense of taste, and it's still my opinion that this restaurant is guilty of that. Most people will love it.More

The moment we walked in it was clear that this restaurant had been meticulously curated. Everything was highly refined and sophisticated. The service was very attentive. I recall my starter came out in under 5 mins. If you are looking for a fine dining restaurant...in Vancouver, I would highly recommend giving this a try.More

Busy yet the service was exceptional and we could hear each other without shouting. I would return for the baby back ribs, duck breast and superb wine list. Take time to walk into hotel lobby which is stunning.

Great place to enjoy your meals; well prepared and nicely presented. Very attention to details and quality of silverware eg interesting to see how hard the staff was working to ensure the wine glassware were flawlessly clean!

Zero stars for Hawksworth Restaurant, supposedly one of Vancouver's best restaurants, where I took a friend for her special 70th birthday celebration. Not only staff were more concerned about the perfect looks of the (empty) neighbouring tables rather than their customers' comfort and experience (us),...but they also shockingly displayed an ageism attitude that was truly offensive to my friend who felt diminished and insulted by the way the waiter spoke to her. After we expressed our concerns, the manager offered us a couple of cold, plastic-wrapped buns, which was rather insulting and felt sexist. Thanks to Hawksworth, my friend felt awful and not valued on her special night. Hawksworth Restaurant: you have a long way to go. I won't go back.More

It was my first time to this restaurant with a Vancouverite friend. I did not get the sampling menu , as I do not eat chicken, but got a crab risotto, which was to the very best case uninteresting and overpriced. The Gewurtztraminer I ordered...was a Pinot gris For dessert, I selected three macarons which where not airy and worst of all the wrong selection. I left a good tip, as the crew was polite, but there was no thank u in return. There are way better restaurants in Vancouver, especially for seafood lovers like my self.More

The answer is yes. Let your waiter know and the chef will accommodate. Yes I believe there is a wine pairing menu. You can always call in to make sure. Keep in mind menu changes seasonally.
