    The appetizers were very good, the main courses were unremarkable and they charged for the steak sauce which put me off. The dessert was gummy and sticky when it was supposed to be crunchy and light. Service was good although after we expressed our disappointment in the dessert, we were still charged. All in all, it fell short of expectations.

    First time to Joe Fortes in Whistler, and we will definitely be back. Good setting and great staff. Clams in broth with toasted foccacia was delicious. Large Prawns were also a highlight. The lobster bisque was not as much soup, but more of a gravy consistency, but not sure that was a negative as it might be their style, didn't ask.

    I was shocked that we arrived, and that not a single person at the front desk actually said the word hello to an incoming dinner guest. We stood there waiting for a few minutes while two associates were manning the front desk. Eventually, somebody else came over to help us. What a poor first impression! Dinner was OK. Not what I expected for what we paid your Vancouver restaurant is far nicer and I think we were hoping for a similar experience so left disappointed. The one positive for the evening our server was lovely and the tentative. Dinner took way too long to come out and there was a gap of at least 20-25 minutes between when the mains ended and the entrées hit the table.

    All the staff except for one seemed like they didn’t want to be there. The lamb shank was over cooked, dry inside and not very good flavour and came with half a plate of kale and some rice with mushrooms. The filet of some was quite good but prices are very high for what you get. Bathroom is up a long flight of stairs so not good for anyone with an injury or bad knee or hip.

    I had the arctic char which just melted in my mouth - the fish was so delicate in texture and flavor. My husband had the chef's special which had Steelhead, cod and shrimp with a tasty mashed potato concoction. He thought all three parts were delicious. The chocolate truffles were to die for - great ending to the meal.

    The food is extraordinary - you must get the shrimp cocktail - best cocktail sauce ever. I had an amazing arctic char and scallops, which were cooked perfectly. We had an issue where the server forgot to put our dinner order in resulting in a long delay between first & main course but the manager served us the shrimp cocktail to make up for it! Definitely go here!

    Great place. Pricy menu but if you have the level of service that our waitress (Bach) provided, I'm fine paying for that...She made the experience worth it with her honesty realness and has the skill of making you feel like you're the most important customer in the place which was eye opening for my daughter too...

    Poor service ruined the experience. My fish came out cold. They told us we needed to vacate the table by 8:30 when we checked in for our 6:30 reservation and then took forever to bring us even bread and appetizers much less our dinner. By the time we could find the waitress to get our check it was 9pm so not sure why they made the rude point of us having our table until 8:30 when they could even serve us more than our main course in that time. We skipped dessert due to the poor service.

    Our second night at Joe Fortes Whistler. First one was great - we sat at the bar and had dinner and drinks. Bartender and server were amazing. Second night was NY Eve and it was honestly a disappointment. Our server didn't know a basic cocktial that we ordered. My clam chowder was so bland I sent it back (but was still charged for it) and the caesar salad - which i'd had the night before and LOVED was not good at all. Oysters were great and my husband loved his sablefish. Our guests ordered gnocchi and did not enjoy it as it had more tomatoes than gnocchi. Maybe an off night? We'll definitely go back but we were disappointed especially as it was NY Eve. I will give a shout out to the bar servers though as they were awesome.
