Was our first experience dining here. The food was mediocre & the service was just okay. The restaurant is way past it’s prime as can be seen from the decor & the menu. Not worth the money, way better options for brunch.
From customer service to the food this place is always A1
This is our families go to place for special occasions and we only go because of how amazing everything is from top to bottom
And we will be back again soon
Excellent service as always. The lobster benedict was a big portion and was full of flavor. Highly recommend starting with the coffee cake to share; it was warm and soft on the inside and had a slight crunch on the outside. There were several brunch options on the menu!
Wow!! Outstanding service!! The staff are awesome! The food is delicious! The piano player is superb! Great service and so much fun! Thank you all at Joe's!!!
Friendly and swift service! Beautiful patio and bar.
We had a wonderful dining experience, the food was fantastic and the service was wonderful. Our server really made the whole experience that much better and was quite entertaining. They surprised us with dessert for my husband's birthday which was a pleasant surprise.
Great service and food always amazing.
Great food with great company. Our waiter was nice however, we had to ask for the specials rather than him telling us. Overall, great food as always.
I would go back for happy hour though.
Calamari and oysters 👍👍
The upper deck at Joe Fortes is a perfect setting for this difficult time.The seating is nicely separated and there is always a lovely breeze.The service is always good and our server was off the the Okanagan for a holiday.The food was delicious as usual and all in all another good dining experience.
Expected a little more considering we picked this place for our engagement.
Food was good for hubby, fair for me. Not the special dinner I imagined for the price and for the occasion. For reference, if you know Montreal, food level is very low from Ferreira. This was part of our anniversary trip to Vancouver so we had our 3yo with us but the place is not kid friendly. I couldn’t eat properly as my kid fell asleep in my arms (stroller not allowed, no highchair).
Lovely room with great energy. Consistently good food and a terrific patio.
Jamie’s service was exceptional! Food was delivered quickly and was hot.
Classic food. Nice place. I personally found the piano loud as it was difficult to hear both the server and my guest, but really that was a minor inconvenience. My first time there and I am looking forward to returning.
Excellent experience, as usual.
Always a pleasure to go to Joe fortes.
Service is always great and food is top notch
The level of service is always fantastic. Excellent ambiance with the piano player in the background. Enjoyable menu with lots of different options to chose from.
Another outstanding brunch! Stellar service once again from Rita! Thank you. This restaurant takes Covid19 extremely serious and it shows, excellent social distancing and constant cleaning.
Not up to Fortes usual standard. Server nowhere near the usual. Hostess seemed irritated. Food was good.
We always enjoy dining here ! So far this restaurant have not disappointed us. Their lobster and prawns rolls is yummy and their lobster oil that we dunk our bread rolls with is memorable as it identifies with this restaurant ! Good portions and service is always impeccable !
Kevin H was a FANTASTIC server. He was extremely informative with the food, wine and details on the history of the restaurant. Everything was incredible!
A great experience as usual, never disappoints!!!
The Covid precaution at Joe Fortes are excellent, which is very important to my husband. The food is great but my lobster tail could have used some nicer playing, even though the tail itself was fantastic. The atmosphere is fun. Must do for everyone in Vancouver!
We've been here before. Food is always excellent as is the service. I highly recommend Joe Fortes.
Saturday night dinner date for 2 - we booked a reservation and went for happy hour. What an incredible experience! Started with cocktails and fresh oysters and finished with seafood platter and wine. Beautiful presentation, fresh seafood, excellent flavours, amazing value (highly recommend happy hour) and excellent service. Piano player at top of the stairs made for romantic ambience. Will definitely be coming back and highly recommend!
Had reservations decided to ask about patio when arriving, and was told yes seating was available but wasn’t told it was a bistro table very high seating my husband n I are older was uncomfortable for both of us. The young lady that brought us to our table didn’t say a word to us pointed to the table and walked away. Our waitress was on point And available for our every need...outstanding I would say. Food was tasty as usual )). Sadly our favourite person “Frenchy” had moved on from Joes .
Didn’t honour reservation via open table request- hostess was rude and eventually was able to get seated in a very loud obstructive area. Decided to take business elsewhere.
I love Joes and the piano player but it
Really is hard to have a conversation shouting over the din of the piano. It is like an echo chamber downstairs and I find it frustrating to relax and chat and hear
And be heard by my guests. Can you reconsider the piano player for the comfort of your guests?
Food was delicious and service was impeccable! Calamari and oysters were really good
Beautiful restaurant with exceptional service and food. Staff has always been consistently remarkable and friendly. I really enjoy going here for special occasions. Never disappointed!
Great patio food was awesome and the staff amazing.
Best rooftop patio in the city...ambiance, service and food quality.
Excellent steak! Wonderful evening.
Waiter was super nice :)!
Romantic lunch with my man. The server was amazing !!!
We had the most amazing time! Their food is always delicious!! Our server made some tasty recommendations that we wouldn’t normally have ordered. We always look forward to dining at Joe Fortes when we visit Vancouver!!
Just as amazing as last time. I was able to get a patio reservation and it was lovely. Definitely coming back!
