Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House
Food quality is amazing as always. Never disappoints
We took our friends from Japan here their first night in Vancouver (their honeymoon). We all loved it! Oysters the Crab Cake and Tuna Tartar for appies, then Sable Fish, Salmon and Steak entrees followed by a Creme Brule dessert. The Server was fantastic and we all left with smiles on our faces. If you're looking for a great spot to celebrate something special put Joe Fortes on your list!
The food is always great at JF and it was a bonus for them to open up the “blue” lunch menu for every weekday. It was a bit disappointing that the server was too busy to manage all his tables so there were delays in taking our drink order and then delay in n our food order. A bit pricy for glass of wine or beer. Great wine menu but limited draft beers.
Our waiter Peter was phenomenal. He was spot
As always outstanding first class service and foods although a tad steep on pricing
The food was incredible. The oysters, the salad and the dessert really shined. The 26 ounce bone in was cooked just right. Ambience is second to none and our server was A+. My only complaint was we were really snuggly/tightly fit it in with our table. And one of the four guests was constantly bumped from another guest at a close table. But all in all, this restaurant is a must.
Blue Plate Special is special indeed. I highly recommend Panko Crusted Haddock!
everything was 1st class.3 course blue plate was super great value
fully enjoyed,will be back
Went for the blue plate special which was fantastic and such a good deal. The Thai BBQ chicken was so good and they accommodated my diet no problem and made substitutions for me.
I will definitely be back for lunch again.
Still one of my favorites after all these years!!!
My favourite lunch destination. The food & staff are the best
Great old school find with amazing seafood. Would definitely go back.
Excellent live music, good food and friendly service
Both our meals were excellent, and served very professionally. The ambiance was great, including the live piano player.
We came to celebrate our son’s 11 birthday.
Brunch was disappointed. Potatoes felt reheated :(. Great desserts!
Service was great and that is always consistent with Joe Fortes. Out waitress was wonderful, knowledgeable and came around often enough for whatever we needed. The restaurant is always busy so this is really an appreciation for the ability of the wait staff to be so attentive. Food came out fast and was great for the most part, potatoes were a bit overdone but still edible. JF is a place we will always go back to.
Great brunch last weekend.
Fantastic meal and service - I am currently in a wheelchair and staff could not have been more attentive!
Crab cake, cioppino and ahi tuna was delicious however raw oysters on the half shell were not cut from the lower adducter muscle so we could not slurp them into our mouths. Instead we had to pick (and rip) them out with escargot forks.
When we travel to Vancouver we always try to have a meal at Joe fortes, always wonderful!!!
Great food and service. It is noisy, so seat yourself accordingly
Had lunch here. Food was very good and served quickly. Servers were courteous and friendly. It was a excellent experience.
Our server Mariela made our whole evening. When I reserved I informed the restaurant that it was my Wife’s birthday.
Mariela wished her Happy Birthday right away and that began our evening of great food, service and they treated her to a special dessert.
Thank you Mariela and the whole staff for providing us with a total dining experience.
Five Stars folks.

This was another lunch with my daughter. She works down the street from Joe Fortes so we are there every month or so. I had the mussels which were very good. Lots of tomatoes and other goodies in the broth. My daughter had a curried chicken dish which she really liked as well. Service was excellent as usual.
Great service. Friendly - not stuffy.
Would highly recommend!
Stopped in for brunch to take advantage of their Benny bonanza. Price is right. Food was good, nice sized portions. Service was not great. Our waitress had a bit of an attitude and wasn’t very friendly. Not what we expect when dining at Joe Fortes. Usually the service is outstanding. Will be back.. will avoid our waitress. Grabbed coffee cake to go. Must have!!
Always a pleasure to dine here!!
The service was attentive without being overbearing. The food was delicious. I would recommend it to friends.
I came for a birthday and not one mention of the occasion from staff. It was booked for a special occasion. The server didn’t make much of an impression at all. The food was amazing at least.
We were here for the first time for my wife’s birthday. Everything about the experience was perfect! Jole, our server made the visit special, the food was fantastic, and the ambiance amazing. Can hardly wait to return!
Yummy brunch and they had someone playing piano! Really enjoyable atmosphere
Birthday dinner, came in from PG, one of our most favorites restaurants to visit! Service was outstanding and food is always awesome!
We had the lobster bisque. It was awesome. This restaurant is definitely on our list for top food, service, ambiance, decor etc. Love it!!!
Excellent Service & Food. We have enjoyed going to Joe Fortes for years and recommend it to anybody that wants great fresh seafood and exceptional service
Excellent service and the atmosphere is very inviting.
The overall experience exceeded our expectations. Thanks
The food and service were great! Music was a bit loud, especially when the place got busier during lunch - hard to hear or speak without yelling. Wish we could have sat upstairs for lunch. Overall Joe Fortes is consistent over the years - great food and service!
