The service was excellent! Our server and the manager Jordan were very attentive!!
We appreciated all that the staff did!!
Great service awesome food...one of my favorite restaurant of all time!!
Enjoyed a wonderful late lunch at Joe Fortes! Started off with some yummy oysters and then a chilled ceasar salad with fish and chips. Finished off with a slice of mile-high chocolate cake. Our version of a happy meal!
It was great. Went for my 21st birthday and did not disappoint! The guy serving us was lovely.
Always and as usual - Jo Fortes lived up to expectations!
First time back on the Fortes patio. Very nice experience. Well spaced, comfortable, and great ambiance as usual. The extended patio that covers the rest of the roof deck is really nice.
Thanks to Matt for great service.
Only complaint might be Poke bowl was a little boring and served with no chop sticks. Oysters and fish and chips were great.
Looking forward to being back soon.
It was our 26th wedding anniversary, we reserved the patio. Kiki and Eddie provided outstanding service and made it personable. LOVED it, will be back.
The roof top was beautiful as well as the inside piano player was fantastic and the food was outta this world i will definately return in the near future
My daughter and I went for a special dinner for her Grad 2020 photo shoot. Food was amazing.
Long-time customer (30 years) and former regular. My dad and we’re in for a get-away weekend and met my nephew and wife for dinner. Service was exceptional as usual. Drinks were on point. Seared scallops and Carpaccio perfect. Our disappointment was two of the group ordered the Fish and Chips and there were not that good. Fish batter was over cooked and dried out and small amount of fish. Fries were also over cooked.
I tried the fish for one of my scallops which proved not smart. My nephew had the gnocchi which was decent but wasn’t a big fan. We are Joe fans so it us tough being critical but thought if this helps as constructive, then that’s the point of the review.
Of course, we will be back.
Great food and attentive service, can't beat this!
Went there for happy hour and the service and food was amazing!! Loved the oysters and the shrimp and lobster rolls. Will go back here again:)
The food as always was superb! Service was ok. We've had better though.
Great and absolutely friendly service. Awesome Happy Hour experience.
Fabulous food and service was excellent.
Food and service was amazing.
It was an amazing experience! Nothing but excellent service and it was quieter then usual because of covid which made it even nicer! It was Father’s Day for my fiancé so we decided to celebrate and it was well worth the visit. Food came out really fast and was delicious
The food was excellent. The wine is very pricey but it's worth it for the steak and oytsters and overall experience
Fantastic as always! Best oysters, great service and so glad to be back!
Service was A+
Piano music was excellent for vibe
They did a great job with the COVID protocols established.
Three of us had dinner here, it was our first visit. Obviously we were intrigued by the history and reviews of this restaurant. The good - the service was very good throughout from everyone. The ambiance was fun, and cozy. The food, however, was disappointing. The seafood platter was not fresh and VERY expensive. We ordered one bone in rib eye to share between two of us. It was $69 and not worth that. The cut was very thin and not good quality. The beef tasted bland and the side dishes (Brussels sprouts, potatoes) were average, at best. Most troubling was that both my boyfriend and I were sick the next day, so something was clearly off. It was very expensive, the food was not great and I’m guessing there was a lot of corner cutting when it comes to the food. We definitely won’t be back.

Always amazing, one of my favourite restaurants. Best happy hour in town if you love fresh seafood!
Highly recommend their brunch. Food is delicious, service is excellent and if you can get a spot on the patio it’s a huge bonus!
First meal back at Fortes since Pandemic. Staff was welcoming - especially Jenn P.
Felt safe and the kitchen didn't miss a beat.
Happy hour is amazing
Post pandemic and the service remains exceptional notwithstanding the protections in place to ensure that COVID isn’t spread. Food was excellent. A wonderful night out.
Always a treat. Enjoyed the bigger patio
Missed fresh crab and lobster
Oysters were awesome.
My wife and I always make plans for a dinner at Joe Fortes every time we go to Vancouver. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The staff friendly and the food is always good
Even though there was less diners due to Covid, we found that the service was very slow. Our server lacked the quality of service we are used to at Joe Fortes.

Fantastic to go back to Fortes now it is open. Bit strange with new pandemic protocol but you do get used to it. Great service overall 5 stars.
Crab cakes are a must. The sauce with it is incredible.
Amazing food, amazing staff.
Great to be back at Joe Fortes! Seafood was fresh and they continue to offer live music 🎶
Very quiet as they are at 50% capacity but the food is every bit as good as before.
Awesome dinner. First night out in 12 weeks and everything was amazing. Jennifer was the best waitress ever.
It is just so nice to be out and socializing again and Joe Fortes didn’t disappoint. The food was fantastic, the service was impeccable and me and my party had a wonderful night out.
Covid measures in place but .... it was well done and felt great to be back
So glad you are open!! The expanded Patio is fabulous
