The restaurant was decorated so beautifully for Christmas. Sat down and was welcomed with bread and their signature lobster oil with vinegar. The lobster oil was to die for. I would come back just for this!! My partner ordered the 3 course meal which was value for money. Not bad food but not the greatest quality. I had the seafood cioppino which was tasty. A good selection of fish, clams and really big muscles. Was very full at the end of the meal. Would be open to coming back with a groups of friends but probably wouldn’t come back with just my partner as it was pretty pricey and I’d rather eat at a more fine dining place. Great service though - David was on top of his game!

Last week, we stopped by on Sunday. Absolutely a great spot to dine. Parking can be challenging, but worth it. Service the best I have in a while. They are very devoted to customer service. The menu very diverse in seafood and other items. Menu items are priced right, specially for the great portion you get. The establishment is very elegant and very well kept. Most definitely will visit again on my next visit to Vancouver.

Fantastic restaurant. Incredible servers, great bartenders, great atmosphere. Live pianist. Amazing food. During the summer time the rooftop deck is really unmatched. All around excellent place. although you do have to pay for what you get but at least you do get what you pay for.

Been to Joe Fortes multiple times over the years. It is my go to happy hour place for buck a shuck. Compared to other $1 oysters restaurants, I find Joe Fortes has consistent quality of fresh oysters which never disappoints. My other favourite dishes on the happy hour menu are beef carpaccio and shrimp tempura!! If you don’t want to break the bank and is curious to try out this restaurant, I highly suggest going there for happy hour (everyday 4-6pm)
Update after 5 months: Went to Joe Fortes again yesterday. It’s a little sad that happy hour price went up :( Wine $7.5 Oysters $1.25

Very good experience and delicious oysters. The waiter was excellent very professional. Another waiter brought bread with lobster infused oil. I recommend this restaurant for a high quality experience that will make your wallet a bit lighter but worth every penny. Will go again.
