A celebration of Vancouver’s cultural diversity and natural environment, Hawksworth Restaurant showcases the ingredient-led, contemporary cuisine that has become Chef David Hawksworth’s trademark. Three-time winner of Vancouver Magazine’s Best Upscale Restaurant Award, the Hawksworth is open throughout the day, offering a glamorous and elegant yet relaxed and welcoming ambience, as well as warm and attentive service.


“It was really interesting to see the diversity and style of wine coming from Puglia and Sicily. The ripeness of the fruit, the silky tanning and the robust rusty dark fruit flavor from Nero d’Avola worked really well. The highlight of the lunch for me was the matching of the Morel Agnolotti mushrooms with the Sasseo and Deliella.”
