The personal dream of one of Canada’s foremost masters of cuisine, Hawksworth Restaurant, located at the legendary Rosewood Hotel Georgia, in the heart of downtown Vancouver fuses together a illustrious past with a radiant future. Embracing contemporary Canadian cuisine, the goal is to set forth a culinary legacy rooted in regional produce while celebrating the cultural diversity of Vancouver.
Approachable menus reflect seasonality and spontaneity while demonstrating the highly skilled technique and relentless drive for perfection that has become Hawksworth’s trademark. Four distinctive dining rooms include an intimate bar area and an elegant private room, all designed to reflect the vibrancy and quality of the cuisine. Grown up and glamorous, yet relaxed and welcoming, Hawksworth Restaurant is poised to deliver an array of memorable dining experiences.
Behind the bar, our passionate bartenders shake and stir expertly crafted classic cocktails that honour the mastery of pre-prohibition tipples. Made with fresh juices and herbs, house-made bitters and aromatic sprays, some are barrel-aged and designed with food friendly flavours in mind. Our rotation of carefully sourced wines and interesting craft beers, offer an array of accents to accompany the bar dining menu in a lively and laid back setting.
The York Room
Hawksworth Restaurant’s Private Dining Room, overlooking the Vancouver Art Gallery’s fountains, is one the city’s most historic and exceptional private dining and event environments. Taking its design inspiration from the 1920’s, the dramatic chandeliers and ornate heritage features create an elegant private dining room- perfect for intimate gatherings or the important executive dinner, lunch or breakfast meeting. The York Room can accommodate a booking capacity of 60 for a seated dinner, and 110 for a standing reception.

This veritable chameleon of a restaurant delivers a range dining experiences suited to a variety of moods or occasions.
