I was away for business on Valentine's Day, so some colleagues and I decided to treat ourselves at Joe Fortes based on a recommendation from a friend. I can't wait to go back! I had the oysters Rockefeller and the night's special feature of grilled sockeye salmon and trimmings. My colleagues tried, raw oysters, the lamb shank, the cobb salad and the squash soup. We were all impressed and enjoyed our meals.
I wish I could remember the server's name as he was excellent! We all had questions about various things on the menu and wanted our appetizers and meals paired with BC wines. He did an excellent job with answering our questions and ensuring that we each a meal we were going to enjoy.

This restaurant has a great vibe and energy going on.
We just sat at the bar for drinks and dinner as we popped in with no reservations and it was busy

The food was great and at the bar there are interesting people to meet and talk with

I DIDN'T have a reservation, and was quickly seated in a nice table for two. My guest and I ordered and forgot to ask that pepper not be used to season our meals(I'm a throat cancer survivor, and can't tolerate it), our waiter was VERY accomodating, and MADE this happen, because of our request the order had to be SPECIAL made, so to get up pass this delay, he brought us a salmon treat to hold us over, and subsituted fries for me, because the potatoe that came with the mean was pre made! The meat was tender, as the waiter had promised, and we BOTH were VERY happy with our meals!

We made this our date night of our trip and we were not disappointed. Our server was great with recommendations and helping us with our first oyster experience. My husband had the salmon and it was amazing. I don’t normally like salmon but I was asking for more. Great atmosphere, we ate upstairs in the wine room.

Friends invited me to happy hour and warned me together there early or I wouldn't get in. They were right! Very popular happy hour food & drink specials. Awesome quality, great service & staff! I'll be back for sure.
