Restaurant Awards 2024, Editors’ Picks: Best Any Occasion Restaurant

Where's somewhere nice but not stuffy, crowd-pleasing but not boring, and always delicious? The "best all occasion restaurant" covers all the bases.

For the 2024 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards, we introduced a very special new selection: Editors’ Picks, which highlight the rooms in the city that serve a specific purpose, in addition to having great food and service. 

Editors’ Pick: Best Any Occasion Restaurant

It’s the sort of restaurant that you find yourself recommending to out-of-towners, no matter who they are: business colleagues looking for a downtown dinner spot, visiting family celebrating a birthday, a foodie friend sprinting through on a layover.

But Nightingale is a local fave for the same criteria. It’s central, comfortable, modern and pretty… and (most importantly) consistently delicious, with a menu that spans the contemporary West Coast gamut from Salt Spring Island mussels to roasted pork belly with gochujang glaze (though the next-level wood-fired pizza is the big crowd-pleaser here).

1017 W Hastings St.
