We love Joe Fortes and used to go there quite often, sadly our last visit was very disappointing. The food (which is usually amazing) could be best described as mediocre, of the four of us that were there the consensus was the same, it was bland and disappointing. On far more positive our server was amazing!!! In fact uninformed the best service we have received at a restaurant (and we eat out a lot) ..I believe her name was Stefania, she was perfect, attentive without being overbearing, knowledgeable, pleasant and a very nice person. Sadly the food didn’t come close to the high level of service.

Fantastic service at Joe fortes. You'll get top notch service while also receiving high quality food. Lots of choices for food. If you like seafood this is the place to go for any type of seafood you would want. They also have good steaks. Little bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

I treated myself to a birthday dinner here. The service was really great. From the time I walked in .Loved the Lobster infused oil and balsamic vinegar. Food was delicious and freshly made. Got a Creme brulee on the house . Server was really nice as well. I really enjoyed the piano playing in the background.

If there’s one place you go for dinner in Vancouver, make it Joe Fortes. Hands down my all time favourite restaurant. It’s on the pricey side, but well worth it for delicious fresh food and exceptional service. The last time I went was for my anniversary with my boyfriend - had an incredible spread of lobster, crab, shrimp, and oysters, paired with a fantastic white wine recommended by our server. The patio has an amazing atmosphere if you get a chance to sit out there. We even got a thank you card in the mail a few weeks later. Love love love it here.

Pretty good place for oysters. A very old school American style seafood/meat place.
Great happy hours. Service was very good.
Seating can get a little cramped, if you are doing some heavy shopping nearby, it might be hard to find hooks and room for all your shopping bags.
