We all enjoyed your sauce. All four of us took home “doggie “ bags. We had the leftovers for lunch today. They were still very delicious. The ambiance was very special and appreciated. The chairs were comfy. The only negative was we waited for someone to come to the entrance for a few minutes to bring us to our table.

Would be a conditional recommendation. Service people and ambiance were great, salads were top of the mark, even the house cab was quite good and reasonably priced. Food however was just so-so, especially the vegetarian risotto that had almost no vegetables and the fettucini ala vodka had very little chicken or presutto. My chicken parm was average, the pasta maybe slightly below.

Beautiful restaurant at the reunion resort. The food is very good but not amazing. Having said that, the menu for this Italian restaurant is varied and accommodating and I would definitely recommend especially at its price point.

We’ve been dining at Forte for years. Food and service is always good. But disappointed in the new menu. Not enough choices and if you don’t like marinara on your pasta, you’re out of luck! No creative sauces.

While our waiter tried to talk his way thru the short comings of our dining experience, facts are facts. We had the send back a wine order only to find out that they poured from a dated bottle of wine. Our dinners were only warm, not what you would expect with an Italian meal. Not very impressive.

We have been to Forte many times and must say the food on Valentine’s Day was very disappointing

The scallop appetizer was served cold and like rubber

We celebrated our 49th anniversary at Forte. We requested the private room that accommodates 8 friends. Everyone at the restaurant was so polite, kind and professional! Forte continues to be top of the line! Wonderful food! Thanks to everyone who made this celebration a perfect memory!

There was some confusion as to who was serving our table, either Tristan or (young woman). After that was cleared up, service was fine. Salmon with roasted vegetables, and Pollo Marinara both excellent. I am not given to easy reviews but this food was excellent, and I didn't expect that from the hotel restaurant. Going to return before we leave town.

Forte' is a reasonable option for guests at the Reunion resort who don't want to brave the traffic to leave the resort. The service was very good and my salmon entree was perfectly prepared.
I would not go out of my way to eat here if I wasn't a resort guest but guests of the resort should definitely give it a try.

Average and incredibly overpriced food. If you’re looking for great Italian, look elsewhere. If you’re looking for an easy location on resort to eat, this will fit the bill. Service was great, but ultimately not worth the money.

The food was delicious, as usual. Our regular and favorite waiter was no longer there. We learned most of the staff had only been there a few moths and it was evident. We will return at some time because it is close to our winter residence and the food remains very good.

This is an Italian restaurant with nice decor, but the food was bland an uninspiring. Not sure if this is the chefs fault or management not letting him do his job. We did go in the off season (early November) not many people there. This was a resort wife issue with the food. Forte, 11 and the Club house.

The restaurant ambiance was nice. However, the taste of the food was average while the quantity was satisfactory for the price that we paid. The wait staff while she was a nice person, was not attentive enough, not that I need someone to hold my hand. The special drink "Hawaiian Breeze" was a disappointment. The taste was flat and there was no attached pineapple or fruit. If they want to be an upscale restaurant, there is a lot of work that needs to be done to move in that direction. I may come back in a year or so because we like the hotel and the Eleven restaurant and patio.

The food and service was exceptional. The front of house manager could have been more in touch than he was. He didn’t go around asking how their dinner was going. We went in for our anniversary and not once did any staff say Happy Anniversary. Do they not read the reservation list for special occasions?

Went for 56th Wedding Anniversary dinner. At least four staff members stopped by table to congratulate. Wait staff very professional, personable, and competent. Food was excellent, with courses being well timed - not rushed, nor delayed. Wonderful house dessert plate presented at the end. Great wine list too.
Fantastic setting, will definitely return.

I was actually quite surprised how good the food was at Forte. I haven't heard much about it and reviews generally placed it around 4 of 5 stars which can concerning in a town full of so many wonderful restaurants.

All doubts however were swept away after being seated. Service was great, food was excellent and the restaurant itself was very quiet. I think once more people are aware of how good this place is it might get busier as right now it's a bit off off the beaten path geographically. (We stopped by because the restaurant is taking part in the Orlando magical dining event.)

The restaurant was very quiet due to a banquet being held for a large mass of people at the resort, we got lucky! Despite this, our server made sure to get our drinks as fast as possible even though the bar had 400 people lined up to it. She was great. Food was delicious and large portions too.

Forte exceeded our expectation. The food was absolutely delicious. My wife had chicken Parmesan with gnocchi. I had Veal steak (bone in) which was flash fried and buried under a magnificent salad. Our server, Trisha, knew the menu inside and out and was always nearby, ready to meet our needs.
