My wife and I with two other couples went to Joe Fortes for dinner and all agreed the evening was a smashing success. The food, drinks and ambience were excellent and formed a wonderful memory we won't soon forget. Our servers were very friendly and freely joked and laughed with us as we enjoyed the meal. Although the tab came... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants anywhere. Great service, second to none. I would have rated a 5 but this time both my wife and I have our steaks under cooked. Both very very rare, I'm sure if we had said something the would have looked after us. I have been here many times and the was a first.... More

Joe Fortes has experienced staff and a great menu. Great place to have dinner or lunch on their patio. Their location is right on Robson St. which is very convenient.

We managed to dine here at short notice and whilst our booking was for a limited timeframe at no stage through our visit were we rushed or made to hurry up. The three of us (two adults and a 9 year old) had entree and mains. The beet salad is yum, Calamari was very good and the lobster oil they... More

The happy hour menu at Joe Fortes is simply wonderful. We ordered a wide selection of food including fresh oysters, lobster roll, and my favourite, truffle fries. Staff had no problems getting us extra truffle oil and sauce for our oysters too! The atmosphere created by the live piano gave the customers an authentic brasserie feel. The staff were very...

I went to this restaurant with colleagues and clients, 6 in total. To ease up the order process my colleague had a set menu arranged with a variety of 2-3 options each for appetizer, main and dessert. Turned out wonderfully as everyone still had enough variety for what they were looking for. I actually asked for a substitute for the... More

Fabulous food, especially seafood. Very fresh and flavorful! Happy hour served oysters for one dollar! Lobster oil for bread is absolutely delicious. Desserts are amazing as well. Have been every time we are in Vancouver and all wait staff are friendly, accommodating and extremely service oriented!
