We had the separate room behind the stairs for our function and server Colin (from Quesnel) was attentive, friendly, funny and our wine glasses were never empty. Bacon wrapped scallops were perfectly cooked, tempura shrimp were fabulous, sea food towers and oysters were all amazing. I had the seafood trio for an entrée and had ling cod, salmon and prawns...

We were referred by the concierge for good seafood. We weren't disappointed, the food was very good. The major drawback was the noise level and we were squeezed in like sardines. I probably would go somewhere else for seafood.

Enough said! If you love great seafood - fresh oysters - etc - Joe Fortes is never going to let you down - Top notch knowledgeable servers - quality ingredients - superior setting (especially the roof top on a sunny summer day.

One of the great restaurants in the City. Happy hour is amazing ($1.00 oysters on the half!) Chicken and waffles with maple butter were scrumptious. Squash bisque was like velvet. I love this place. The service is very professional and the room is lively and fun.

My husband, our friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at this restaurant. The service was excellent. Our friendly waiter was attentive without hovering and had very good suggestions from the menu. We all enjoyed our meals which were beautifully prepared and served hot. The only reason that I did not give this restaurant five stars is that it is... More

You need to make reservations to ensure that you can get in. The menu is very extensive and as the name suggests, seafood comes first and so the fish was the item I was going to order. The waiter was very helpful as I described what I wanted in a fish entree. I ordered the sablefish - which was a... More

My wife and grandchild spent slightly over $300.00 today on an average meal. We were seated for brunch with the warning we had to be finished in 90 minutes. We agreed that was our first mistake. We ordered appetizers calamari (was wonderful) the seafood tower was very good. They brought the entrees before we were 1/2 way finished the appetizers.... More

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner. Everything was delicious! It was one of the best dining experience for us except .... the server. We felt rushed by him. My husband and I always take time with picking up the menu. We asked multiple times that we need time to think/look over the menu... he was at our table every... More
