Great food in a downtown setting.

The menu changes often but is always tasty. You can have a casual meal at the bar or an upscale experience in the dining room.

We were pleasantly surprised to find such an eclectic menu in this small town! Being that we were there during Comedy Fest, reservations were needed for a table - we ate at the bar without a reservation, which turned out to be a good choice. The full menu was available plus a bar special (Beer & Steak for around $15),... More

Love the $12 steak and beer special.. decent cut of steak, side ceasar salad and smashed potatoes all washed down with a pint of Southern Tier Brewing Company beer! They have 4 taps.. all STBC products but plenty of bottles. Great liquor and wine selection too. Try the Fortini! I've never had a bad meal here and the waitstaff is... More

In a sea of mediocre food in the area, Forte delivers a great atmosphere and thoughtfully prepared food. The dessert is always a must! Also, for simple and easy, make a reservation for the bar, and have steak and beer! Never a disappointment!

One of my favorite restaurants in the Jamestown, NY area. The atmosphere is quaint. The menu is varied to fit everyone's tastes. The food is consistently superb and well prepared. (I have eaten here many times for several years). The presentations are creative. Friendly staff who appreciates your business. Prices are fair considering the high quality of the food. The... More

My husband and I visited Forte on a Saturday evening (without a reservation). They squeezed us in before our movie date. We ordered apps, two entrees, two mixed drinks, and dessert. We ate everything! The sushi was the best in town, according to my husband. I had a Caesar salad with house made dressing and was not disappointed. For entrees,... More

I went there with 6 of my coworkers for dinner one night. Its a nice place but it's on the smallish side. If you have a party of more than 6 you might have some issues getting a table if its after 6pm. The menu selection isn't very expansive but it is a little expensive. They had a $12 steak... More

For such a small town like Jamestown, NY this place makes you think of big city fine dining. The staff was great and very knowledgable and the food was as good as you would pay $100s for in NYC. If you ever have a reason to be in Jamestown put this on your to do list.

I've visited Forte several times now and I have to say they do an amazing job, I first started going for the steak and beer special in the bar area which really can't be beat for the amazing quality and price, a steak so delicious it's a shame to add any sauce or seasoning to it!
