Experience unabashedly adventurous yet simple cooking at its finest, set against the heritage of the Vancouver's historic Gastown neighbourhood. 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, an inviting dining room with banquette seating, and an intimately-set private dining room.

Our gastronomically daring menu focuses on ingredient-driven cooking prepared with the utmost integrity. Each and every component has been thoughtfully nurtured by 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.
