    I enjoyed the service, the atmosphere. The salad I had was amazing! The entree was average. I was most disappointed that a slice of cake was $15. Really ridiculous. But, it was an inviting place.

    Everything was fantastic. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars overall is that it was a very hot day and the air conditioning was not working properly. Food, service were excellent!

    We love Fortunes food, menu and service. It’s just way too noisy inside. Impossible to have a conversation without screaming. When the weather cools down, we’ll back on the patio.

    Service was a little slow, and our pizza was served without share plates. By the time they got there it had cooled substantially. I’ve never had clam chowder that was spicy before. The pizza was good and the server was nice.

    Arrived and it was HOT so opted for inside high top. Very comfortable chairs and good footrest which is not always the case. Decided on Happy Hour shareables and loved everything. Meatballs were our favorite and pizza was great. Fish tacos which were good but nothing special. They were out of the pork belly which sounded great so will try next time. Also had clam chowder (outstanding) and wedge (also outstanding). Very good service. Cocktails were very good too. Tried the margarita (spicy one and blackberry) and one of their daily special cocktails. Will definitely go again to try more!

    The food is soooo delicious!!! We went back a few days after our first time we loved it so much we had to take my best friend. We ordered the burnt ends appetizer again, divine. The bartender recommended their calamari, pan seared and it was beyond divine with a lemon butter caper sauce. We wanted to lick the plate. The sausage rigatoni and meatballs appetizer were insanely delicious. Great service and great misters and fans to handle the heat on the outdoor patio.

    The outdoor tables were so small for 4 and pretty close together. My seafood Louie and my friends was vastly different. One was a wedge and one was chopped. Too bad because outside used to be nice. There was no effort to adjust the meals.

    Fried chicken dinner was excellent. We had it last year and was disappointed in March it wasn’t on the menu. We were pleasantly surprised on Tuesday that it is one of their specials. Large portions one dinner serves 2 easily. So glad to see it back. Also the calamari is one of our favorites here. Fried artichokes is like Daniels Broiler so if you are from Seattle area definitely try this! Always a great meal.

    I chose Fortuns as I love their pizza and have been there for happy hour. Lovely outdoor table and atmosphere. The waitress was wonderful but hard to get quick service as the bar was backed up. The setting was so nice it did not matter. My friend had the sole and loved it! Wonderful. I had the Thai noodle salad and regretted it - mostly cabbage and a couple of linguini noodles. So learned my lesson ...get the pizza or fish, steak. Will definitely go back. Nice bar area.

    we were greeted very nicely. a very nice young man brought us water and greeted us. for the next 20-25 minutes we saw not one employee. a table arriving 15 minutes after we did, was seated, greeted, and drink/appetizers ordered. we left and ate at the restaurant next door. had our salads 8 minutes after being seated.

    We have eaten at Fortun's many times over the years but this was our best experience. The food and the service were excellent. My wife and I both had the Calamari with the pasta which was a 10+. The other couple had the filet of sole and a wedge salad which they said was outstanding. The patio dining is delightful and a little quieter than inside which is perfect for dining. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Everything was okay, but I ordered a cocktail and my husband asked for a glass of Rose by the glass and the waitress asked if he wanted the 6 or 9 ounce. He said the 9 ounce. He had 2 glasses. When the bill came, they had charged him for a $30 glass of wine. There was a $15 glass on the menu, but she assumed the $30. We couldn't believe it.
