About Mission


The food at Mission is based on well-sourced ingredients prepared with impeccable technique. We combine the best of the native land with the traditions and ingredients that have become available in our great region over time. There is a focus on sustainability with a true nose-to-tail philosophy resulting in outstanding value for the quality and presentation of the food that give guests a full experience of the bounty of the region.

The Mission dining experience is focused on our tasting menu. Chef Owner Curtis Luk creates these daily. There are two options for these – the $45 four course or $65 six course menu with a vegetarian version of both also available. In tasting room fashion, an eclectic wine list and optional wine pairings have been carefully selected by sommelier owner & manager Chase MacLeod to match every course. Professional, friendly and knowledgeable staff will lead the way in explaining the food and guiding through wine and beverage choices.

Our Lounge is focused also on local ingredients for well-crafted in-house cocktails led by head bartender Justin Darnes. The cocktail list is a blend of rarely seen classics aimed at the discerning connoisseur; appreciated by anyone. From the kitchen a daily selection of share plates inspired by the ingredients used in our tasting menus are available to be paired with these as well as wine & local craft beers.



“If Mission has the mandate to become one of the best new restaurants in Vancouver, I would say that it has already accomplished it. Bravo.” Alexandra Gill – Globe and Mail.

“#1 in Georgia Straights top new restaurants of 2015” Gail Johnson – Georgia Straight.

“In some restaurants, dishes are visually arresting or stunning but you’re not panting to eat them. Luk’s food is not only elegant, your mouth waters.” Mia Stansby – Vancouver Sun
