The food was excellent. Our server Eddie was so wonderful.
It was a great night out for my daughter’s and husband’s birthday.
It is a historic place. One of the oldest and the best. Good selection of cocktails. And the food is more than good.
Was awesome as always!!! Food was delicious and the service was perfect. Thank you !
Our waitress service was mediocre. We've been in Joe Fortes several times. Each time our waiter/waitress has been amazing. This time not so much. I was celebrating my birthday. She did not ask if we were celebrating any special occasion. They use to give you a whole loaf of bread now we only got 2 small buns.

Our server was spectacular. The service she provided was up to the highest standards. The food was delicious. Loved the oysters!
Excellent service, food and ambiance. The seafood is amazing! Would come again!
A bit disappointing... I booked a table more than a week in advance specifying that it was for a birthday celebration. When we arrived we got a tinny table for the 4 of us. We could barely fit our orders and drinks on it. We didn’t have any particular attention whatsoever even if we asked for a bigger table. The one we got should really only be for 2. While the mussels were really good, I was not impressed with the side lobster tail which has nothing special but steamed.. I was expecting a little bit better for a $29 sides. We also got rushed all the way through our dinner. The whole experience was quite disappointing to celebrate my 35 birthday.
We chose to enjoy brunch at Joe Fortes to celebrate our anniversary.
We were very satisfied with the experience: very good service, ambience, food - Roben, our server, was very pleasant as was the piano music.
Food was great, recommend the oysters! So fresh! A definite must try
Me and my girlfriend went here for dinner and the food, drinks and service were fantastic. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great dining experience.
The 2 hour window for dinner service on a Friday night is very tight for most tables of more than 2 people. It might be necessary to have 2.5 hours for groups of 4 or more to make the meal more enjoyable.
Great atmosphere, food/drinks, and service. The Happy Hour is a good deal, with a representative range of offerings. Felt very safe re. COVID protocols.
Great lighting and live music (piano). Food is always excellent if you are a seafood fan.
Food and service are always top and that makes you come back
Good atmosphere/like the partitions they should stay. Service above exceptional. Food quality is what i would've expected.
We had a very pleasant evening at Joe Fortes. The server was helpful, engaged and we had a great chat with him. We continue to come back as the food is constantly good and the servers are knowledgeable and personable. This also happens to be my husband’s favourite restaurant in Vancouver.
Joe Fortes was a very accommodating dining establishment. We needed to bump our reservation from 4 to 5 on short notice. Food was terrific. Service was lacking in that the place was overly busy being a weekend into the New Year and most places were busy and the servers were shorthanded. Music ambiance was great and I know that the guests I had with us really enjoyed the piano. Overall it was a great place and I would recommend it to anyone.
Great service and food. Fabulous restaurant.
great service, good good, will definitely re-visit
Came during happy hour. Great selection for food and drinks during happy hour. However, calamari was covered in thick batter and very bland.
Server was not friendly. We felt rushed. Server seemed like she didn’t want to be there. Not very attentive.
Beat value, best seafood and even better service. A real Vancouver gem!
Make a reso!!
Joe Fortes is the perfect place for adult family get-togethers and special occasions. Their food is always amazing and their service never disappoints.
It was my son’s 21st birthday and everything was perfect! Great food and ambiance
Amazing food. Calamari was the best I ever tasted. Steaks and scallops were done to perfection.
I like all seafood dishes in this restaurant, oysters are good baked and fresh as well
My favourite restaurant! The best oysters and lobster rolls!
Both the bartender and our server were excellent. They were attentive and helpful. The food as usual with Joe Fortes was great but the service made the evening
This was my second time at this location and totally love it every time. Food is so amazing. I had the porkchop and it's the best I've ever had. My husband had the sable fish and it was also cooked perfectly. Each time we have been, the server has been top notch service and super professional.
My dinner partner and I had the fried oysters. The crust was over cooked. Everything else was lovely.
Beautiful Restaurant. Service was amazing! 2 very knowledgeable servers looking after us. Food was delicious! Haven’t had such a good experience at a restaurant in a long time. Perfection all around.
Absolutely great dinner & service as always!
When we first arrived, we were greeted warmingly. Our server was bright and accomodating. She checked up on us and made sure that the food was to our liking. The food was phenominal! All delicious. Worth every penny! My husband and I enjoyed ourselves very much.
Have not been in many years. Food has slipped to mediocre (except oysters). Service was good, but not as good as it used to be. Overall, an average dining experience.
Really nice time. Staff were professional but fun. Good energy
Night in the city with our kids
Exceptional food and service
I have been dining at Joe Fortes for over 20 years and the quality of both food and service has never let me down. Usually it is a quick hour long lunch and my guests and I are always amazed at the excellent food and incredible service within our time frame. I also enjoy the daily specials as they are consistently fresh, innovative and delicious!!
The restaurant was unusually busy for the last seating, which is good for them, I guess. Good covid protocols, tables divided by plexiglass. The food was very good as usual. The service was a little slow and got even slower after a bunch of elegant young ladies arrived and further diverted the attention of staff.
Good Evening, I'm terribly sorry to hear about the slow service you received at Joe Fortes. May I please request that you email firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number and an appropriate time to further discuss your experience? Kind Regards, Kelsey Wickett Assistant General Manager
