Excellent facility, food and service great. Very noisy
We had such a great experience at Joe Forte's the other night. Although we are Vancouver locals we hadn't dined here in a while - we will definitely be returning soon. We had our 2 toddlers with us and they were being difficult but staff was SO accomodating and kind. The service was outstanding and food was delicious. They had a vegan option for one guest and a kids menu. I much appreciated the whole experience.
Muy buen ejemplo de cocina canadiense. Los pescados eran sabrosísimos. Muy buen servicio.
Es un poco ruidoso pero más que nada por los comensales.
We ate at Joe Fortes a year ago when we were visiting and enjoyed our dinner very much! This year was good but the Ribeye Steak was not as flavorful as those we’ve had where we live in the Seattle area. The jumbo prawns were divine! The steak was good but not as tasty as we expected, however the Bernaise sauce added a nice touch and made it more enjoyable! Donna gave us excellent service and was an absolute delight!
My boyfriend and I came there for my 21st birthday. Food was delicious and the server was fantastic. Went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience
Uur waiter not only provided excellent "professional" service but enhanced our overall dining experience with his wit and charm! We will return before departing Vancouver. Make it a point each visit to dine at Joe Fortes.
Servers were extremely nice and prices weren’t too bad - went there for lunch and really enjoyed the experience.
As always Joe's was great. Go every time I'm in Vancouver.
Everyone enjoyed their entres and the service was very good. The price is in line with the quality of the food and service. I’d recommend for a special occasion but the noise level was a bit high.
Family in town.
Great food, the rooftop is great inside they have music.
The crantinies should have frozen cranberries like they used to and the drink service was a little slow but then again it was very busy. It would be nice to order off the Happy Hour menu even when your not seated in the lounge. Other than that we had a great evening as usual and will continue to enjoy your establishment when we are visiting the downtown.
Thanks for the memories,
Food was awful, service was far from good. Will not return.
The food was great, the place and the music were really good, but they didn’t give me any special treat even though they mentioned my birthday, not even a coffee.
We visited Joe Fortes twice during our Vancouver stay. Once for linner @ 4:00 without a reservation, and later in the week for a business dinner with reservations. The food is amazing and there are plenty of choices for all kinds of tastes.
We were a group of 6 friends meeting up by coincidence in Vancouver at the same time.. The food was good especially the oysters and mussels and the service excellent. The piano player was unnecessary and added to the noise level which made talking hard. Very busy place, need reservation.
Great experience- table was on the patio. Perfect evening!
Everything was spot-on as per usual. Only critique, a very small one, is that the bread should come to the table warm. Otherwise, my go to steakhouse every time I go to Vancouver.
We were visiting Vancouver with another couple from California. We chose Joe Fortes based upon other reviews and we were not disappointed. Each of had different dishes. The absolute home run for our table was the miso glazed sable fish. Service and food quality were outstanding. This is a justifiably busy place with a bit more noise than we might have preferred, but definitely worth it. We will be back.
We were celebrating my mom’s retirement party and my promotion. Everything was amazing, food, drinks, wait staff, ambiance. We did sit in the bar area for dinner which was a little louder than we like but nothing we couldn’t manage.
Went with a business partner and we were greeted by an elegant and charismatic server (from Rumanian descent) who spoke excellent Spanish and took care of us with exceptional ease for lunch. Oyster starters, wine selection and salmon mains were all on point and very tasty. Will go back next time in Vancouver and shout out to management who clearly understand how to “wow!” their customers.
Food is good as expected.
Johnny D. - our server , really nice, always carry a smiley face, which makes my dinner more enjoyable.
Joe Fortes has always been our go to restaurant for special occasions and dinner for visiting friends and relatives. Our meal on July 1st was excellent. Our server, Colin, was attentive and friendly. From the moment we arrived, we felt we were not only welcomed but treated as a special guest. Our meal was excellent. Service was excellent. This is definitely our favourite restaurant in Vancouver.
We have been visiting Joe's for over 20 years and have never been disappointed! It was our 22nd anniversary and they made it so special with a special touch with the message on the Feature sheet! The wine was fabulous, the food was outstanding and as always the ambiance was fantastic with the piano!! LOVE LOVE this place!
Food was take so long to serve
Always perfect! Above and beyond staff. Exceeds expectations every visit. Thank you
Went to celebrate our wedding anniversary,had such a great night -from super friendly, prompt service to wonderful fresh food and plenty of it; not skimpy portions! Just delicious and great selection of wine.Loved the life piano playing in background.
Great atmosphere. Excellent food. Exceptional service. Definitely with the visit .
We got a recommendation from a waitress from another restaurant. She always comes here with her parents. We are from California and will pass on the recommendation!
Excellent food. Our server David was superb, as usual. Reception staff made an effort to seat us at requested table.
Always our Vancouver favorite - great menu and amazing seafood choices!
Mathew at the rooftop bar was excellent!
Food was very good but the service was a little erratic. Our coffee came cold and was not replaced until we had eaten dessert. We sent it back.
Joe Forte's is a great place to enjoy a beer, a glass of wine and a hearty meal albeit seafood or meat. The service is impeccable and given the energy in the establishment, a very enjoyable visual place. But the food is why you go there as it is first rate with hearty portions and very tasty.
Sorry, The Food is Not good and it Is Not Worth to Go!
Excellent service and food. We always enjoy a meal at Joe Fortes as a couple or with friends. The service is very professional and the wait staff can answer any questions about each item on the menu. The food is perfectly prepared and the seafood options are fresh.
Service was impacable. Food was great. One of my favorite place in the lowermainland.
We enjoyed our dinner at Joe Fortes. Food is delicious. But the service was exceptional.
Great food and we really enjoyed the roof top seating!
Very loud but still a lovely atmosphere with live piano music. Service was outstanding - Thank you Mike and Philip. They were attentive, knowledgeable, and personable. Food was fantastic, as always.
