    We went for happy hour. Food was great! Service was also really good. We kept adding more food options and they were very attentive. We also had a bottle of great wine and the chocolate cake for dessert. Try it!

    We dined at Joe Fortes in Whistler for our anniversary and had a great time, with one exception. It was almost impossible to have a conversation because of the noise level, which was exacerbated by crowding too many tables into the dining room. Management cannot do much about loud conversations, but the staff can provide more space between tables.

    Absolutely amazing! Food, ambiance but most of all the VIP service we received by Don and the General Manager made our evening truly special. My last visit to Joe Fortes in Vancouver was less than disappointing but as a result of efforts from Norma Cisneros (Marketing Director) we gave it another try and were more than pleased. Would definitely recommend.

    We had the sea food tower and it was plenty for two people and very yummy. Disappointed with the old fashion as it had a dehydrated orange that neither tasted nor enhanced the drink in any way. Stick to the classics, how hard is it to slice a piece of orange zest! Crème brûlée was the best I’ve ever had.

    My friend and I had dinner last Sunday night after the Beer Festival finished for the day. The Joe Fortes hospitality was excellent ... great food and wonderful staff. We enjoyed the Apres Fried Oysters, Apres Mini Lobster Rolls and the Miso sablefish ... highly recommend them all.

    Out of the four of us 3 Had the seafood linguine they were fantastic. Would of liked to see more than one prawn and one scallop less clams and bigger mussels. Prices were high. Other person ordered the gnocchi very disappointed. They were pan fried with vegetables. The lobster oil and basalmic vinegar was not good it was fishy do not recommend it.

    I am a huge fan of the original Joe fortes Vancouver. This Whistler location is chic but nothing like the original location. I was hoping for the same buzzy bar scene that invites socializing but this location is more formal dining. The food is excellent. The prices are top dollar. The restaurant is in a very odd location, off the beaten path, and The entrance was not easy to find. I don’t think I’ll be running back for this experience.
