    Our server gave great recommendations and between two of us, we had their seasonal oysters (4each), halibut cheeks and mussels. She and others were attentive without being intrusive. We had a lovely dinner and left stuffed. We were celebrating a birthday and received the complimentary creme brûlée with biscotti. Very thoughtful and classy touch. We enjoyed the live pianist and the atmosphere was very lively.

    Food, wine and the service was impeccable. Ambiance and decor rather disappointing. You should change the stair carpet as the ripped sections let you down on the other qualities you exceed in

    Incredible food and superb service! The gentleman who service us was just outstanding in all that he did and a friendly, kind person. His recommendations, his banter and his serving skills left us never wanting for anything. The best service that I have had in a very long time, anywhere. The only thing that people should know is that, due to the design of this gorgeous establishment, with it's high ceilings and stunning staircase, it is quite loud inside. I absolutely recommend Joe Fortes, what a pleasure it was to dine here.

    Great spot for dinner. Love the ambience and location in downtown Vancouver ! We got the large format 32oz porterhouse, a tiger prawn cocktail and the Ling Cod off the fresh catch menu. The steak was phenomenal as was the prawn cocktail. Unfortunately the cod was a bit overcooked on this busy night. That's the only reason it's not 5 stars. Service was impeccable. Johnny is a stellar waiter and everyone in the entire place was more than nice and accommodating!

    The food was excellent. We enjoyed the wine and very good service. It was very loud though and there was quite a draft, but we enjoyed it and can definitely recommend Joe Fortes restaurant!
