The seafood choices were outstanding, the service was excellent. We ate out on the upper terrace which made for a beautiful evening. A little on the pricey side, but I would go back here anytime.

Nice place for dinner. Huge portions, almost too much food. Fish was great, steak was great, service good. Recommended without reservation. A little pricy but worth it

Wonderful dinner, the food was outstanding, service perfect, it is a busy place and I only wish we could have called ahead for a reservation. We had a table we didn't love.

We ate lunch outside on top of the restaurant and had fish sticks and salad. I know fish sticks don't sound that good for a fine dinning restaurant but they were not like you typically get.

We were recommended this restaurant by the concierge at our hotel and on walking in found it to be a really buzzy lively place with the perfect menu. Unfortunately it was a Saturday night and very busy and it became fairly apparent that we would not be allowed to linger over our meal or, indeed, even our menu choices. We... More

Stayed in Vancouver for a few days before embarking on Disney Alaska cruise. Aside from being an absolutely gorgeous city, the food was just as spectacular. We ate at Joe Forte's 3 times during our short stay. It was within walking distance of our hotel. Happy hour specials are the best deal. Fresh oysters - delicious!! Shrimp cocktail - fabulous!!...

This place has great oysters, great caesar (cocktails) and great caesar salads!! Designed like it's out of London, it has great service and great food. Location is also very easy to find. I would eat here each and every time I visit Vancouver!

Great atmosphere, Attentive service, with great variety in their menu. second visit in last two years, feels like an old style steak house with very modern menu. I have personally recommended to friends headed to Vancouver. Loud, Happy, and fun.

We enjoyed Grilled Salmon and Ling Cod. The meal was delicious and well presented.The conversation noise level is high, even at the ground level tables. A piano player started playing the piano at 6 pm but we really couldn't be hear him very well over the conversation noise level.

Oysters are excellent as is the New York strip loin! Very good selection of wines and the staff are excellent in their knowledge and service. Would certainly recommend a visit if in Vancouver! Book ahead though as their is usually a few people waiting to be seated!! Yes it's that good!
