Wildebeest (winner of Best New Restaurant and Best New Design - 24th Annual Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards) invites you to experience deliciously decadent yet simple country cooking at its finest. set against the history of the Vancouver neighbourhood of Gastown. Explore a locally-sourced farm-to-table menu paired with a diverse selection of Old and New World wines and a carefully crafted cocktail list. Set in a refurbished 19th century building, the multi-level space offers a front house cocktail bar & lounge, open-concept kitchen complete with large kitchen tables, an inviting dining room with banquette seating, and an intimately-set private dining room.
