OUR STORY

We invite you to experience unabashedly adventurous yet simple cooking at its finest, set against the heritage of the Vancouver neighbourhood of Gastown. Explore seasonally fresh, farmer-direct cookery paired with a diverse selection of Old and New World wines and a carefully crafted, award-winning cocktail list. Set in a refurbished 19th century building, our multi-level space offers a front house cocktail bar & lounge, open-concept kitchen complete with large harvest tables, an inviting dining room with banquette seating, and an intimately-set private dining room.

OUR MENU

The gastronomically daring menu focuses on ingredient-driven cooking prepared with the utmost integrity. Each and every component has been thoughtful nurtured by the restaurant's executive chef, Alessandro Vianello, from field to finish. We work closely with surrounding farms & farmers for organically-raised happy animals and seasonal, often custom-grown produce. Employing classic butchery traditions and simple contemporary techniques, Wildebeest presents delicious menus of the season. This is food for food lovers.

Groups are welcome for seated multi-course dinner or 'cocktail & canapĂ©' events with intimate capacity for up to 146 guests. We will happily help to coordinate all aspects of the evening including entertainment, transportation, and audio-visual. Click here to view our private dining package.
