Amazing service and food .... always a great choice
Service and food is amazing highly recommend. There attention to detail is on point.
Delicious food, great atmosphere. Staff is accommodating and kind.
Unfortunate experience when it came to paying. Waiter messed up the math and tried to overcharge and I politely called him out on it but it left me with a bad taste :/
Great time very busy but very noisy
I voted low on the ambiance because I’m not sure why I should bother reserving in advance when they give you the rubbish tables. Feels like the best tables are reserved to attract walkin people and not those that reserve
It was our 30th Anniversary!! Tony our server was amazing!
Table seating was too close for comfort. We were placed in a corner with people 3’ away, under a cleaning station with other vacant seating around, poor judgement on someone’s part. To top it off I was splashed with water (from cleaning station).💦
Not a pleasant experience!!
Best happy hour we ever experienced. Amazing food and excellent service!
Our server was very inattentive.

loved the piano playing however too loud when trying to have a conversation
Excellent service in a beautiful, central location. Order the steak, you won’t be sorry.
Service very good! Food good ! chicken soso！
Celebrating my bday
The service was good and the food was great. I’ll definitely be coming back again
Super great service, always had our water glasses & drinks filled. Oyster Rockefeller was incredible, steaks cooked perfectly.. they made our anniversary special defiantly go you won’t regret it!
Fantastic food and service, as always. However with Covid, it would be nice if they spread the tables out more. Other diners were seated less than 2ft away when there were open tables further away.
Great as usual. Thank you for seating us in the little area where it was a bit quieter.
A memorable evening. Our waiter was fantastic and we can't wait to return!
Wonderful experience with Phyllis as our server. Just great!
We always come to Joe Fortes while in Vancouver (except in the heat of summer as there isn’t any air conditioning in the restaurant). We love the food and ambiance. We find all of the wait staff to be good at their job; however, our server on Thursday night was excellent, he really was exceptional and we certainly appreciated it.
We have always enjoyed this restaurant over many years! We were celebrating our 43 rd anniversary! I found the tables very close together with little space for servers! I also found the noise level very high as the music was playing as well as a full house around us. Our food was excellent as usual !
As always everything was outstanding. Service was excellent. The food was incredible. The ambiance as outstanding.
Great service, excellent food. A little noisy but that didn’t dampen the experience and atmosphere.
We expected a better experience for the price point
They ran out of the fish I ordered and my daughter’s ling cod was over cooked and dry.
Alright but not more than that.
Service was friendly but so many waiters serving us we lost track of who was who.
Also the tables were very crowded together.
Fantastic service and food. Live music was awesome adding to a great ambience.
Great food and service as usual to celebrate a birthday!
Never disappointed when I go there! Always recommending to friends.
Worst customer service ever! The tables are so close together and space were tight, had to ask server to move us to different table cause the lady behind me was hitting my back. Servers don’t even bother refiling our water and the food was bland (steak) had to sprinkle salt and pepper 6x just to have a taste! Idk whats the hype all about. Never coming back!!!

Unfortunately for some reason, our server chose to keep pulling down his mask to speak to us During times of covid, we did not feel comfortable with his action. Unlike customers who must provide proof of vaccination, vaccines are not mandatory for service staff.
We also waited a long time time for our food as well as for service. We had to repeatedly ask other servers for assistance in clearing plates, refilling out water to getting our desserts and bill. This is very different from the excellent service standard that Joe Fortes is known for.
Very disappointed with our dining experience.

I have been to Joe Fortes before and the seafood is excellent, so we thought it would be fun to go for turkey on Thanksgiving. The turkey was dry, the mashed potatoes mediocre, and the vegetables uninspiring. The stuffing was not very good either. The squash soup was good, as was the dessert, but the entree was disappointing. The piano playing was so loud it was difficult to hear my partner's voice. Backgound, not foreground, please!

Tasty as always. Felt rushed with their 90 min table limit. Should be 2 hours.
We enjoyed an amazing Thanksgiving dinner! Our server, Brian was friendly, observant & efficient. Overall, a great experience!
Very nice ambience, fantastic food and friendly service!
Was there for a birthday celebration. Impeccable service and amazing food. This place never disappoints us with their super attentive to detail service . Our server was hilarious yet provide us a top notch service. Their consistent high quality of service will definitely bring us back more often.
Excellent service, food and value for happy hour!
The Moscow mule was not tasty at all and the prawn tempura shrimp were extremely oily. Unfortunately won't be back.
Kevin is amazing. Thank you again kevin! It was great to see you. You made our most recent visit to joe fortes extra special, cheers!!
