Wonderful food and service
I dined here one evening, I was greeted at the door by the owner who brought us to a beautiful table. He was polite and gave us a great suggestion of what to order for dinner. The food was some of the best seafood and steak I have had in New Jersey. I enjoyed my evening there and can't wait to go back

We had a very nice meal the food in general was good. I had tile fish I did not really like it. It did not have enough taste. The others at the table had Hanger steak which was very good. The service was great. Overall we hada very nice meal.

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Forte. The food was very good, the menu has something for everyone, and John (owner) gives personal attention to every diner. Forte just started a $25 special dinner. There were 5 appetizer choices, 5 entrees which included steak, fish, and shrimp, plus coffee and dessert. The portions were perfect - not too big and not too small - just right. I have to say, I prefer this to paying the same for mediocre quality food and getting a double portion.
I had the steak - tender and the sauce was delicious. My wife had the flounder which was fresh and very tasty.
We liked it so much we are going back again this Saturday night.
My only other observation is that the decor could use a refresh!

Add it to the list
Forte Unique was a very pleasant surprise. Dining on short notice on a Monday night, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, the friendliness of the service and the charm of the restaurant. And it's close to where we are in Manasquan so we will definitely return. It also looks like it has a very low key bar scene where you can relax and have your favorite cocktail.

A Very Nice Menu, Wonderful House Wines. All In All A Great Evening Out, And Will Go Back Again.

Their website says "come in as a customer and leave as a friend". And that is so true. We discovered Forte two and a half years ago when we purchased our condo in Point Pleasant . The night we closed on our condo we went to dinner there and have been regular customers ever since. A special note is that you can be comfortable at the bar having a quick bite or going to the dining room for a complete meal. We have enjoyed both experiences immensely. From the attentive staff to the fabulous food to the friendly owner we have found our "special spot".

Portions were extremely generous for Restaurant week. Food, and service were very good. Wine prices were reasonable.
Really prefer a BYOB. Will go back on Thursday night when I can bring my own bottle of wine.

night out with firends
Very relaxing atmosphere, with friendly personable servers. The setting is great for a small or large group of people. The spinach appetizer was the best yet, as was the Shrimp Mediterrean. Food was served timely, hot, and was very attractively displayed on the plate. You can spend an evening in a quiet atmosphere without the waiter rushing you out the door, as I have experienced in other restaurants. I would recommend dining here.

I have been looking at this place for years and never made the short trip, well that was my mistake. This restaurant rates with the best in the area, outstanding food & service, it is on my permanent short list of go to places.
