And although that may say it succinctly, Forte is a variety of things to a great many different people.
Forte is a cocktail lounge. Forte is a wine bar. Forte is a place for great sushi as well as the all-inclusive steak and beer dinner deal in the bar lounge. It’s a sometimes dance club, a rotating art gallery and a part of the growing arts corridor in downtown Jamestown.
I do not eat here enough though I live nearby. I have never had a bad meal here
It's a great place for a special evening out. From the atmosphere to the menu. Would go more often if I lived closer.
Always great food with a changing menu. The staff is attentive, food is very interesting, the chef does a great job
Dinner was very good (I had the crab cakes and my husband had the noodle bowl) and my drink was particularly good.
I thought it was great, but the meals were a bit over-priced.
Amazing food! Well worth the drive from Erie!
Nice dining spot in Jamestown. Would return if in the area. Good food and well priced. The space is small and the noise was large.
Any time I have ever been to Forte, I have never had a bad meal. This place is always my first option when meeting friends out for a nice evening. I would recommend it to any one looking for unique for with a great atmosphere.
Surprisingly Excellent restaurant in Jamestown where the restaurants are few
Lots of unique entrees, everything we had was very good. They could use a bigger wine selection, but the wine we did have was very good.
We were in Jamestown for the National Comedy Center and had reservations for dinner. It was outstanding. I loved everything about this place.
Food was great and an interesting atmosphere. They didn't get the reservation I made on opentable, luckily it wasn't too busy and we were still able to get in.
Have been coming to Forte for years. Amazing food everytime.
It was a little warm in the dining room, and construction was going on outside, but it was an overall great experience. I would recommend Forte to anyone.
A very nice place for any occasion in the heart of Jamestown. Upscale and imaginative m by with mid-level pricing. Highly reccomended!
We had an outstanding meal at Forte last night! Our party ordered pho, shrimp lomein, seafood risotto and mahi-mahi tacos! Everything was delicious and portions were very generous. The shrimp was cooked to perfection and delightful. We had reservations at 5:30 and finished in time to see RBG at the Reg next door! The movie was funded by Forte as well! So great to see local business supporting the arts and small films. Thanks Peggy for all you do in Jamestown!
Great food in an intimate restaurant in Jamestown, N Y. Also had very good cocktails and with an offering of local brews and well priced wine list.
the sushi i ordered was not what was brought to me and it was tasteless. the beet salad was swimming in dressing and the vinaigrette was overpowering. the wine and roll were delicious. wish there was more music playing. a $100 dinner for two that wasn't good.
Food delicious. Service very good. Pleasant atmosphere.
Our first visit to Forte was a very pleasant one. Dark walls with local art, high old tin ceilings, no loud music (thank you!) and friendly, efficient service. Most of all, very good food. A sushi appetizer of poached lobster and sriracha with crisp asparagus was fresh and well-made, although the sriracha might have over-powered the delicate lobster a bit. (There's an entire sushi menu that was very tempting.) A creamy squash soup was mellow and satisfying. Shrimp risotto and a double-rib stuffed pork chop in a saltimboca style were both excellent entrees. The rice perfectly cooked, the chop juicy and tender (a rarity for the pork chops I've sampled in the region). Delicious truffled mashed potatoes. There's a solid wine list including several good choices by the glass. Didn't sample; but there's a craft beer list, too. Just the sort of neighborhood place you hope to find in Western New York but seldom do. We'll be back.
Brought out of town friends...they really enjoyed the food!
Great food and drinks! The specials are outstanding! We had the Risotto ball appetizer with garlic aioli and it was amazing. I also had Lobster bisque that was outstanding. Great seasonal items to try along with a good solid standard menu
Everything was perfect! Service was paced exactly to our needs. Food was delicious and beautifully prepared. My only suggestion would be more vegetarian options.
We love Forte! Amazing food, creative drinks, friendly staff, and a great atmosphere all around.
Great staff and service. Open face steak sandwich was a bit awkward to eat. Bartender/server was very engaging and enthusiastic. We sat and ate at the bar by choice and it was pleasant and conducive to talk. We were too early for entertainment but could come back again later. A very pleasant experience!
Pleasant surprise. Delicious dinner. Interesting preparation.
The choice of beers was disappointing. I asked for pale ale and was given blind ales that tastes like fruity nuts. I was given three different selections and couldn't drink any
I opted for Yuengling and was charged for all. Food selections were average to mediocre. The quality of your food seems to be slipping. Very disappointed
Great menu, wonderful service and everything was delicious!
Excellent food. The curry soup and the sushi were delicious. Nice selection of beer. Highly recommended.
Wonderful sushi and tasty NY strip steak! Good value on wine list too.
Great find on OpenTable in Western NY! Portions were generous and service attentive.
We Love Forte! It is the nicest little find in Jamestown! Great food (seasonal menu), so there is always something new and exciting to try. The drinks are great too! Also, they have local artist's work on display for purchase. Just a great place all around!
