While in Orlando we wanted a meal at a 5 star restaurant that was not a chain restaurant. SCORE!!! A great way to start our visit!

Our first visit and the food and service was very good. A little surprised that a Grey Goose martini was $18. Will not be ordering that again!! Will definitely go back.

When our food came, it was incorrect. The waitress didn’t come back, so two of the three of us were done before she came back. No need to send food back at that point. She didn’t even ask if there was a problem......wouldn’t you ask if there is a whole dish not touched?? Took forever to get our check and then to get out. Not a good experience at all. Very disappointing. Never again.

Booked on line for a 2045 table for 5 on 8/5/17. I am sorry to say that my food was not to my expectation and the server not attentive to our table. I felt disappointed. I said nothing to the waitress at the time due to not wanting to spoil the family event which was our last night final meal treat at Reunion Resort. ☹️

Great food and service. The waiter knew the menu well and gave great recommendations. The restaurant was very nice, seating for us as a couple was away from the busier family area (which wasn't too bad anyway). We were not rushed through our meal and relaxed while we enjoyed our meal and dessert.

Yolanda went above and beyond to make sure we left satisfied. Our waitress Trisha was good, but was scarce and not there when we needed something and there was only up to 4 tables filled that we could see so not sure where she was. Our note we put in on Open table when we made the reservation about it being our sons birthday was completely overlooked which was disappointing.

The food was all great though. Very good.

Yolanda our hostess was very accommodating. We added 3 more to our large party and although the restaurant was busy and the tables were all reserved, she somehow made it work and didn't make us feel like we were bothersome.

The food was fantastic! From zucchini chips to chicken Marsala to Nutella Semifreddo and so much more. It did NOT disappoint.

Will was our runner. Even though it was his first night working there, he killed it. Great job Will.

And then there was our server, Noor. He was the best part of the evening. He was attentive, precise, friendly, and entertaining. We laughed the whole time we were there because of him. He is the gem of Forte. Thanks for a great dining experience Noor!!!

Forte doesn't disappoint! Had great meal at Christmas so when we were back in town we made a point to have dinner there. Minnnestrone soup was excellent. Lobster ravioli and shrimp scampi are our favorites (the cream sauce is amazing)! Jonathan our waiter was excellent - very attentive. Very enjoyable dining experience!

We have been enjoying Forte's for several years now, on our annual Florida vacation. This year was exceptional. The veal marsala rivals one of my favorite restaurants at home. The zucchini parmesan chips are addictive and the chocolate flourless cake with vanilla bean gelato was decadent.

 (Naples)·Dined on February 22, 2017

We were staying overnight in the Reunion Resort and dined at Forte with friends. The service was very good and the food in general was excellent. However, my husband chose to have a New York Strip steak, which he was unable to eat because of lots of gristle throughout the meat. It seemed as if it was a very cheap cut of beef dressed up to look like a NY Strip steak! Nevertheless, we would definitely dine here again and he would choose something from the more traditional Italian fare, which the rest of us chose.

Hadn't been here in a couple of years so I was very pleasantly surprised with the menu and the food quality. The service has always been good. It's a relaxing experience. Had the lobster ravioli, obviously handmade with large pieces of lobster ( heaven). My friend had the salmon and also said it was excellent. Shared appetizer of meatballs, ricotta and sauce, shared dessert with coffee/tea and 2 glasses of wine $102. Thought that was pretty reasonable for that quality of food and service. Next time, I take the husband 😊

We have visited this restaurant many times over the last few years. We have found it has gone down in regards to the quality of food. The food is bland and never hot. Pasta and fish dishes are fairly unpleasant when served room temperature or cold. I gave my over all score good strictly due to the great wait service. The waiters are friendly and on top of their service overall. You can find a much more appetizing meal for a better price value some where else.
