                                                          This is a gem of a restaurant with personable service, delicious food and a nice atmosphere. Located in a strip mall the interior is quirky and fun - a nice bar and industrial shelves with good for purchase including wine, canned delicacies, pottery and other lovely things. Service was attentive and friendly and everything was delicious. Don't miss the cheese and egg baked bread - outstanding! This is a wonderful diversion from the strip - a wonderful, local gem - we will be back!

                                                          I saw the place on Diners, Drive ins, and Dives so I made a reservation as we were on our way to Las Vegas for a short vacation. This is a bistro so don't expect a large table. We could not wait to try some Bulgarian food and we were not disappointed. We ordered a bottle of wine from Bulgaria. I was expecting it to cost about $100.00 but was pleasantly surprised at how little we were charged for an excellent Cabernet Sauvignon. The food was just outstanding. The lamb shoulder was like eating butter. The lamb chops were medium well, but still very tender and tasty. Whoever dreamed up putting feta cheese and fresh dill on french fries is a genius. The Chef should be teaching people how to fry french fries; they were that good. We did not try the goulash, but that will be on the list on our next visit. Do yourself a favor and visit this place. It may be a little off the strip, but it is very easy to find.

                                                          The food was amazing and the atmosphere was great! We had never been there before, but certainly plan on going back again! Make sure to try the stroganoff fries!

                                                          Our waiter helped us with choices from the menu. The food was excellent. Special cocktails, meat and cheese tray was very nice. Russian honey cake was light and delicious.

Makes me feel like I was back home in my Nani's kitchen! Ilko and the rest of the staff are very attentive and personable. Never a bad experience!!

The European plates were sized just big enough to satisfy your appetite and the bacon wrapped almond stuffed dates appetizer was excellent. Our friends who live only a few miles from the restaurant had never been there before but they thought the food and atmosphere was enjoyable and they said they would be back now that they know it was there.

                                                          Nice little spot with great atmosphere and service. Food was way too salty.

                                                          My wife & I went for dinner and it did not disappoint. Our server Marta was great! She was super friendly, answered all of our questions, gave us food suggestions and we tried some local Bulgarian wine that was really nice. The whole experience was casual and felt more European, it was great!

                                                          Food was good but they were out of a lot of stuff (including ALL desserts) so it was a disappointment.

                                                          Excellent Eastern European style tapas with very good service. The chebureki and khatchipuri are must-order items. I wish they served Georgian khinkali, but they don’t. They make up for it with beautiful decor and eclectic dishes, an extensive wine list and a variety of Rakja.

                                                          We saw Forte on Diners Drive ins and Dives and decided to give it a try when we visited Vegas. It was a great decision. Our server was very helpful and attentive, and the food was different and delicious! We'd highly recommend giving Forte a try. ☺👍

                                                          Our second visit to this lovely little place. It is off of the strip about 15 min. by Uber/Lyft and well worth it. The prices are normal for a nice dinner out, but certainly not crazy high like Strip prices. The food is delicious...it is Bulgarian I believe, but they do also have some nice Spanish style Tapas (it is in their name)...they have ham, cheese, and olive platters in their starters. Their lamb PLATES are AMAZING although this time I was quite sad that they no longer have their "Easter Lamb" plate on the menu anymore. Was really looking forward to it. I had the Beef and Lamb Confeit and it was delicious. The service is very good and friendly. We will be back

                                                          I've had been to Forte's NUMEROUS times in the past, and always had a great experience. However, my wife and I hadn't dined there in about 6 months or so, and I really don't know what happened. Everything basically went from REALLY good to just basically average. The food was simply just OK- nothing special- and most of it that came out was cold. Even the Biscuit Cake - which was OUTSTANDING- seemed to missing something- like they changed the recipe. I just was not impressed at all. I'm actually sad writing this because I used to love Forte.. Hopefully they go back to their old ways, but for now, it would be hard for me to recommend this restaurant to my friends.

                                                          Waiters and chef were rude. Food was cold. Not kid friendly at all.

                                                          Forte European Tapas Bar & Bistro made my birthday celebration a memorable experience. Discovering it was an an absolute delight. We intend to return the next time we are in Las Vegas. Congratulations to the chef, the servers and everyone else. Anyone who eats at the high end restaurants in the casinos is really missing something special.

                                                          It was very interesting to eat food that I do not normally eat. The grape leaves were delicious. The one pot dish was fascinating to try.
