My long time friend and I were in town for a concert and wanted to fancy up our dinner. We made reservations about three weeks in advance for this beautiful restaurant. Upon arrival our coats were checked, and we were seated in a beautiful and...warm dining room. We decided to do the tasting menu with the wine pairing, I believe the tasting menu changes either monthly or bi monthly. The portions were generous for a tasting menu, the wine was paired perfectly. We commented on every glass we were served because of how well it complimented the food. Service was impeccable, the staff took time to ensure you were enjoying the meal. I will be returning to Hawksworth on my next trip to Vancouver for sure. This is a restaurant worth visiting again and again.More

Let’s be blunt; we came here for the astonishing happy hour deal and experienced a delightful team, a pleasant space, great drinks and delicious food options. Most of the write ups on this space focus upon the delightful dining room, which did have a lovely...overall feel. Since we were there pre dinner on both occasions we visited, the dining room was quiet and the bar was full and busy. Even so, we were able to hold a conversation at normal voice levels and got great attention and charming bar tenders still focused upon crafting lovely drinks albeit at a great value. I did not try the gorgeous looking burger but did sample other delights including those cocktail friendly oysters! Def put this one on your list as a great option for early drinks and either retire to the full dining room or try another great restaurant in the area. You wont be disappointed. And then there is that lovely Damien Hirst to keep your eyes busy.More

Every once in a while you come across a “gem” and this place fits the bill - on all accounts. They have found the absolute sweet spot when it comes to modern, classy, fine dining without the pretentious, stuffy, formal atmosphere you find in some...other top end restaurants. Our waiter Vinny and the sommelier Cameron could not have been better. If you want an outstanding experience with a modern west coast twist then this is your place.More

DISAPPOINTED. The main dining area was far too loud to be considered "fine dining" (beside a bar and TV airing football). Food tasted mediocre at best and portions were woefully small, especially for the price! The staff were lukewarm and their service could be improved...upon. Never again, would not recommend.More

It is hard to fathom that this is still considered one of Vancouver's finest dining spots. We ordered drinks to start and 2 of 3 arrived, called the maitre d' over after 10 minutes and could see just behind her the 3rd drink being brought...out. Why would the waiter not wait until the full order was ready to bring the drinks??? Our server was pleasant though not particularly "trained" for fine dining, asking by interruption too often "how is everything?" but ultimately not seeing some MAJOR problems at the table. The food: lovely fresh salad served on seriously too small a plate so pieces were falling off every time a mouthful was ventured. Quality was good though. Next, 1 person's main course arrived and the sauce was served at the table and then nothing, no one, at least 10 minutes with nothing and no one coming to the table to explain why only 1 of 3 entrees was being served, finally server came and we asked to speak to the maitre d'. Server apologized saying they would take the 1 entree back and make all 3 anew (you think??). Maitre d' never arrived to handle the situation, waiter offered a round of drinks on her only we were having a bottle of not inexpensive wine... After a while all 3 entrees arrived together, only the one which had been whisked away was obviously re-served and it was cold, mine was SO SALTY and really kind of pathetic few scallops with charred cauliflower and a SALTY, SALTY bedding of who knows what but SALT. The 3rd entry was okay. Fearful of another debacle if dessert was ordered we skipped dessert. They comped the wine, which was as it should be, fine, but seriously we won't be back...More

This is a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion! We went to celebrate a major milestone birthday and had an amazing meal and experience! The courses were all works of art! Every course was beautifully plated and needed to be photographed! Eating each of...them was just as amazing! And the wine pairings matched perfectly and topped off a very special meal and celebration! We would definitely go again and highly recommend Hawksworth!More

It had been a few years since I’d visited this restaurant. Our group started the evening off upstairs at reflections rooftop - a fun, inviting spot! At Hawksworth, we were greeted warmly and checked out coats. Service thought out the evening was perfection - Bertrand...is engaging, knowledgeable and the epitome of professional. The room is sleek and elegant. I started with the passion cocktail - delicious! My challenges with this dinner started and ended with the food itself. My starter was the squash and apple plate - a study in contrast - crisp and soft, tart and sweet, etc. it reminded me of a one bite amouse bouche that was stretched to a starter course (see photo). My main? Steak - great quality meat - perfectly cooked and rested. Just so small. Maybe 3 ounces? All six of us - including some smaller eaters, left hungry. While I appreciate the innovation, great service, attention to detail and high quality ingredients - just can’t get behind dropping that much cash and leaving essentially hungrier than when I stepped through the doors.More

This is my favourite restaurant in Vancouver because of the always terrific service and the great food. The location is great and easily accessible. I like the environment, cosey but not crowded. Noise is not an issue so you can have conversations. We had the...three course lunch which was fantastic and so reasonable. Looking forward to my next visit there!More

Despite an excellent meal, interesting wines, very good service, and a lovely interior, only three stars. Why? The noise level. There is no reason that people need to effectively shout in order to have a conversation with either the staff or their dining partner. We...will be very happy to return when we can carry on a conversation at a reasonable level.More

Our 3 course set lunch was as exceptional as ever. The standard, quality and flair of each dish was highly appreciated. Service was as attentive and delightful as ever. Serving wine by the carafe is a revelation in Vancouver but not in France. Such a...brilliant idea so why isn't anyone else thinking of this. The 29 dollar menu was amazing value and the increase to 39 dollars is still good value and we will return. Keep it up and we will support you.More

Our party of 4 loved this restaurant. It’s a modern comfortable setting, attended by warm and friendly staff. One of my favorite offerings for the night was a stone fruit (peach) gazpacho. I plan to make my interpretation at home, probably not up to their...standards, but it was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had! Simple but spectacular!

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.
