Great food and awesome service
Wade was awesome, fun and very knowledgeable! Great dinner!
I had a wonderful meal at joe fortes. I ordered the large prawns which come with rice and vegetables. The meal was delicious. I ordered the sumac ridge Chardonnay and the key lime pie for dessert. The service was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Thank you Brendan for the amazing customer service! A true professional!
Being a holiday Friday, expected the brunch menu so was a little disappointed but we should have checked first. Fine here often so food is good and service attentive
Joe Fortes is my absolute favorite restaurant in the lower mainland!! From the moment we walk through the door we are treated like VIP's. Mark, our server, never fails to make our dining experience fabulous. The food, the atmosphere and the friendly service made our birthday lunch absolutely PERFECT!!! Highly recommend Joe Fortes!!!! Can't wait to go back real soon.
Great food, location and friendly staff. Our first day in Vancouver, fabulous start to our holiday.
Waiter was great- but had trouble hearing the specials as it was very nosy and loud.
Bread, appetizers & food came in a timely manner.. no following with how our entrees were until they very end- ordered the daily fresh catch of the ling cod- was delicious but it was luke warm- veggies were warm, another entree was the sirloin steak- unfortunately it was cold ( ordered medium was medium rare) add on lobster tail delicious. Dessert creme brûlée & tiramisu very good.
It was my husband’s birthday and we were seated at good table, which we enjoyed. The meals were very delicious, service was great too. I told the hostess that even though it was a birthday dinner, we didn’t want anyone to sing happy birthday. The waiter brought a complimentary desert for us which was wonderful.
My mother’s 80th birthday! They made it a very special night. Thanks so much Peter and Bryan.
First Class Service/Food!! First visit and wont be the last. Its our new favourite place.
Our server Tim was absolutely phenomenal. He knew the special, took it seriously and provided the perfect amount of service to not be overbearing. He made fantastic recommendations and we hugely enjoyed our visit.
Thank you again Tim and all the members of staff for making our visit memorable.
Great service menu and wine list. Only complaint was the so called hash browns. Deepfried wedges of cpud was not what i expect from a restaurant of this caliber.
A must try is Sablefish!! If you have never had this dish .... don’t even think twice about ordering this one. Mussels as an appetizer we’re also very good. Service was on the spot too!!
Eddie was the best 👍
Good seafood and steak house but felt a little over priced for the outdated decor (sat upstairs) and ambience.
Another wonderful evening at Joe Fortes. Great food and wine selection, and our meal was to die for. Love the old vibe of the restaurant and the live piano player. Our server Eddie was an absolute delight, and had great recommendations for us. This is the best food and service you’ll find in Vancouver!
In town for a concert and we spent a few hours enjoying the seafood and always the key lime pie is a must have. We received excellent service and were not rushed. Would definitely comeback and recommend to friends traveling to Vancouver.
Another great time paired with great service!
The Service was great. There was incredible team work which was awesome to see!
Great plate presentation with good tasting food as well!
My husband and I really enjoyed the patio ambience.
Always love coming here... the food, the service staff & the ambiance
Outstanding! Thanks again!
Service was excellent , waiter very knowledge and they all worked well together as a team. Food was great and well presented . Would go back again next time in Vancouver
It’s was more than we expected, the food and service was excellent
This is a seafood restaurant fully, and an average one at best.
Awesome service! Our server explained the specials and gave his recommendations without us asking. My mom’s flowers were also kept in the refrigerator and was given back to her by the time we left. My family and I arrived hungry and left full with amazing and tasty food! The scalloped potatoes were the best!
Our food was outstanding and the golden beets were a fun surprise! For a Monday night, it was really noisy and that was the only aspect which wasn't perfect.
Amazing! Always a pleasure dining here!
We love Joe Fortes and used to go there quite often, sadly our last visit was very disappointing. The food (which is usually amazing) could be best described as mediocre, of the four of us that were there the consensus was the same, it was bland and disappointing. On far more positive our server was amazing!!! In fact uninformed the best service we have received at a restaurant (and we eat out a lot) ..I believe her name was Stefania, she was perfect, attentive without being overbearing, knowledgeable, pleasant and a very nice person. Sadly the food didn’t come close to the high level of service.
Wonderful service, great food and a classy yet energetic ambience. They go out of their way to make you feel special, which explains why they have been in business for years.
Always a pleasure going to Joe Fortes, always good food, good cocktails and excellent service!
It was a great time!
Great fun! We appreciate the food and service
staff are very nice and friendly.. even though its busy everyone knows their job.. all the staff are all in sync
The service at Joe Fortes is friendly and prompt. Though the restaurant offers a very traditional vibe from the decor to the menu and the server's uniforms, the guests vary in age and everyone there seems to be having a wonderful time. The food and drinks were delicious and I look forward to returning to enjoy their famous rooftop patio.
The food was amazing, we enjoyed the calamari, steamed clams and jumbo scallops. The restaurant is always quite noisy but a large party arrived and sat behind us, they were extremely loud and were bumping into our tiny table for two throughout the evening. At one point I had someone’s rear end inches from my face. A little less enjoyable when other patrons hve no respect for the people around them.
For the most part the food was delicious except 2 steaks were cooked to rare when we requested medium. The service was not superb like it usually is. We waited 45 minutes for our food and then had to rush because we were headed to a concert. I was really disappointed and will try another restaurant the next time we are in Vancouver
Great service, tasty food, excellent company. Will be back again
The environment is beautiful and attractive. The service is good especially for Richard. However, the girls in the front desk seems not very helpful as we waited there without any instruction before being arranged the table. The food was tasty except too salty. I love the mushroom and chop. I think it's better to consider to reduce the seasonings in the future.
Great food, excellent service. Very convenient for a quick lunch time bite. The fish taco's are outstanding!!
