Sable fish, expensive but worth it if somebody else is paying
Good food, excellent service, great deal for the blue plates. Highly recommended.
A nice place to enjoy a good meal and get excellent service.
Outstanding customer service from the greeting to the meal and everything in between! A special thank you to Brittany for always making my time at Joe Fortes special!

Great food and Service!
Good food, good ambience. Nice dining experience. Recommended for seafood and steak fans.
A Vancouver gem.
Good food and atmosphere. However, it is a bit loud. We found it hard to carry on a conversation
I have always wanted to visit Joe Forte's for dinner - I had been there for brunch and loved it. Dinner has a different vibe to it. The place was packed on a Saturday night! I ended up ordering the calamari which was delicious, the breading was just perfect! I also had the Miso Sablefish - WOW! This was an incredibly well prepared dish. I will be back to Joe Forte's for dinner!
Awesome night as always great place
The staff were excellent however the food was poor quality especially for the cost.
Joe Fortes never fails to impress. The food is as delicious as ever, portions are generous, staff is friendly and professional and the ambience cannot be beat! Few restaurants remain this good year over year, while keeping fresh and relevant. Perfect combination of traditional and current. I have two teenagers who cannot wait to go back. Thank you for a wonderful family day experience!
Waiter and assistants were very attentive. Food never disappoints.
Every time we come here for dinner it’s always such an experience from the waiter to the music and the food is amazing ! Thank you for a beautiful Valentines Day!
Food tasted fresh..staff was very friendly and courteous..best steak I've ever had..best seafood..I will come again..again..again
We had an amazing Valentines seafood tower. Our server was wonderful and very attentive.
Amazing food... amazing service. Peter is the best!
The ambiance is crowdy and noisy. The restroom is incommodious. I told my server that I would pay by cash. Then she didn't leave away and was always peeping us. Unprofessional and narrow-minded.
One of the best seafood meals I’ve had in Vancouver! The service was great, our server was very informative and helped us pick some great options from the menu. My only feedback would be for the hostesses. They seemed a bit unorganized and frazzled when we arrived a little earlier than our reservation.
Otherwise a great experience!
Food and service was fantastic. Joe Fortes has the best crab cakes that I have had anywhere.
We were seated on the top floor and it is far too noisy to talk. If we return we will sit at the bar or request a table on the ground floor. The noise is a little less there. The food is very good, Caeser salad that we shared. Very nice. The salmon wellington is my favourite. We both took home quite a bit.
Wine was nice.
Business dinner for two, seated near the wine cellar so noise level was perfect for carrying on a conversation however with privacy. The food was excellent and fish cooked to perfection.
Service, food, atmosphere all fantastic! Overall, an amazing dining experience!
Cada año en febrero cenamos familiarmente ahí desde hace 27 años
We had a very pleasant birthday dinner at this restaurant. Our waiter, Zach, was very attentive throughout our meal. Our table was situated nicely on the top floor, although there was a cool breeze as we were near an exit door. There did seem to be a bit of miscommunication between the food runners and the wait staff. We never received bread at our table until I asked for it, which may seem like a small thing, but nice to have at the salad course. The bussers seem very confused with our water too. Those having sparkling water received flat and visa versa! Overall, a great evening. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family. We will be back!
We loved everything about this restaurant. Some people think it’s too loud but I really liked that type of loudness . The live piano players as fantastic and the food and service was outstanding.. can’t wait to go back!!!
That was our first visit to Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House. Great location in the hart of the Vancouver Downtown. Nice and very populated ambient, cosy piano music. Very friendly staff but very busy.
Table for two was tiny and the space between the tables was minimal. The seafood was fine but nothing to ‘wright home about’. At the end of the evening we left with the filling that we did not get for what we paid off.
We had the most incredible dinner experience! From the service to the food, to the ambiance, it was perfect!
We went there for their Eggs Benedict Special and had made reservations. I'm glad we did as the place filled up quickly. Service was excellent even from those filling the water and coffee. The staff was attentive without being overbearing. The food was very good. We had the fried chicken benny and a regular eggs benny. The chicken was cooked nicely and was still moist - it was thigh meat which I like. It was enjoyable to have it served on cornbread that was neither too moist nor too dry. It didn't fall apart when cut. We loved the bacon used with the regular benny. The only issue was that the potatoes were a tad overcooked. We would definitely go back again.
Our server was really great! The table is too close to another table Bit uncomfortable but overall was great
Outstanding service. My dinner guest only spoke Mandarin (I dont) and our waiter who speaks some Mandarin did an outstanding job helping organise the meal.
Long wait to get food (but they were busy). Really loud. Good experience overall. Very good food.
Loved the food and our waiter but it was too noisy to talk.
Always great but expensive
We had the fish trio. Everything was excellent but the Salmon was a bit old. The fat layer near the skin was brownish and made the meat a bit strong in flavour... Otherwise awesome. I'm used to fresh fish so I am picky this way. The others who are not from the coast loved everything as they ate it all... quickly
The food was great, every bit of it, even the bread with oil and balsamico, the oil has a lobster aroma to it.
