I have had meals that are just as good, but what sets Forte apart is their service by bartenders and servers and the drinks made (suggest a Cosmo)!!!!

What a terrible place. (if you are not a local) It is supposed to be japanese cuisine but they were out of edamame (which they priced at $8.. the small paler). I looked to my bar neighbor plate and I could not believe his raw tuna (sashimi) was almost black. Food poisoning hello? I was surprised to seat at the... More

I have always had a great meal at this restaurant. The service is also very good and the meals are reasonably priced. There are lots of menu options and each entrée is artfully presented. The place is small so it is best to make a reservation. If you need to wait for a table, the bar is nice. Put this... More

What a great menu, fabulous service, and perfect atmosphere. We've already recommended Forte's to friends! We started out with sushi appetizers, the best of which was ahi tuna slices on crispy wonton with tasty sauce drizzles. All our meals were well prepared and yummy: a green curry fish special, seared shrimp & scallop dinner, pork shank prepared like an osso... More

Forte is a wonderful place for dinner. It has a menu that will satisfy all types of diners, from borsari rubbed steak to a curry pot pie. Wednesday now offers a mix it up menu choice, a tasting menu from a different part of the world is offered. I was fortunate enough to have the Indian 3 course tasting menu... More

Forte has a fantastic $14 steak deal: very good piece of lean steak, well flavored with garlic mashed potatoes, salad, roll and 20 oz. draught. You have to sit on the bar side of the restaurant to get this deal Monday-Friday. If you want the table by the window for 4, best to call at least a week before the... More

While overnight in Jamestown, NY, our hotel staff recommended Forte. It was actually a pretty good choice - food was good and tasty, when it arrived. My wife had a salmon and we think that Forte staff actually had to go and fish it from Chataqua Lake...that's how long it took to get dinner on our table ( 50 minutes... More

We have been here a few times now. It is worth the trip from east of Toronto just to have a steak! The service is nothing short of excellent! I usually have steak and my wife and I both love the pasta dishes. Pasta is cooked to perfection. Highly recommended.

Everything was great! Very diverse menu had me skeptical that they could do so many styles, well. But they surpassed my expectation! Steak and Scallops, Deviled Eggs, Mushroom soup, all amazing! Unexpected surprise.
