One of the area's best

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 am reading the rating for restaurants Jamestown they have a small new Cuban place at the top it may be good I have never been there they also list our top pizza place which is Excellent but it's a pizza place.

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! If ordering off of... More

This restaurant is a delightful surprise! We went twice over the winter this year. Now, Jamestown is in the heart of the WNY snow belt, and both times we were there, it was absolutely frigid outside. Forte is warm, cozy and sophisticated. Dinners are upscale, with a twist on classics. We had one vegetarian with us both times, and she... More

Stopped in while traveling for business. Restaurant is well decorated and I enjoyed the atmosphere. Would also be great for a date or romantic night out. Ordered the 8 oz. sirloin with garlic mashed potatoes. Very good, especially for the price (around $18). Also added the salmon soup (don't recall the exact name). This was alright, could have been better.... More

Everyone said to eat here. Long wait at bar. No reservations available. Our steak special was tough. One in party ordered chicken that was tough as well. Go to taco hut across the street. No wait, cheaper, better food.
