Great food, great service, great wine. I'll definitely return soon enough.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Dinner!Had a lovely time here. Took my Dad here for his 60th birthday dinner and he loved it. Everyone's food was delicious and we were pleasantly surprised at the portions ( how many times have you gone out for a nice expensive dinner and been disappointed with the price vs food disconnect). I should mention that our server Michael was great; professional, friendly and attentive. Thank you Joe Forte's in a city full of cookie cutter restaurants and gawdy establishments it's nice to see there is still a place with class, charm and an understanding of the meaning of service!12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had exceptional serviceWe had exceptional service and the quality of the food is outstanding. Our favorite place to visit when we come to Vancouver. We're never disappointed and recommend it to all of our friends.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Vancouver Culinary MustI am in Vancouver from Europe 3 times a year, and always try to visit Joe Forte's at least once (not always booking uner my name). A lot going on, what I call "instant party", very pleasant staff, and "Monsier Frenchie" does a great job at hosting his clients! The fresh halibut this time was outstanding. Terrace not open, but have been there and love it. ... and everyone loves and Oyster Bar. The atmosphere in Joe Forte's is cosmopolitan and at the same time European chic.9/4/2013 12:00:00 AMwhen we placed our reservations,when we placed our reservations, we left a note mentioning it was our daughter's 22nd birthday. Upon arrival, there were personalized menus created wishing her a Happy Birthday. After ordering they took the menus and rolled them and tied them with ribbon so that we could take them home!!8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service by dedicatedOutstanding service by dedicated servers who know all, noisy environment not a secluded romantic setting. Decor has not changed since the 1980s. Food is reliable but not on the cutting edge, tough to get a bloody steak but easy to get a tough one. That said the oysters and other seafood is excellent. So go - its a Vancouver tradition.8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent evening and brunch mealsOur experience was so good on 2013/04/06 we came back for brunch the next am.
I have also booked my husbands b day dinner there on April 20 th as well.
Looking forward to it.

The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. The menu selections were terrific for a party of five with seafood and steak. Well Done.1/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Restaurant !I took my family (there was 7 of us) out for lunch at Joe Fortes just to try it out. The food was awesome! I had an open face steak sandwich and quite frankly, in all the times that I have dined around Vancouver, that was the first time I saw a medium serloin steak properly done. I was pleasantly surprised when my steak also came with some unusual looking Onion rings. I thought they were doughnuts at first =) I tried them and they were Yummy ! My kids had the fish and chips Blue Meal and my wife had the pasta and they were equally awesome! Price is very reasonable considering the location and our server was outstanding !1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMWill go again for sure...The server that day (sorry can't remember his name) provided very good service.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
