The food was outstanding! The Tuna Crisps, Braised Short Ribs and Thai Noodle Soup as well as my friends duck sandwich were fantastic. I am polishing off the remains as we speak. Apologies to Forte. We had to dash before our main course. The staff were very supportive and understanding. Highly recommend Forte and Jamestown night life.

I was surprised to find such a great place in Jamestown. My girlfriend and I both enjoyed the appetizers MORE than our entrees, but overall everything was the quality I hoped for at the price I payed. The beet salad was the first thing we received and it was very delicious and refreshing. I look forward to returning and trying... More

This was my first trip to Jamestown, NY and after reading reviews on here, we decided to make a reservation for dinner. For drinks, they have a nice bottled beer list and a few on draft. My boyfriend had a 22 oz Southern Tier Mocha. I was in the mood for a cocktail and I ordered the Garden Mary tini... More

Food was fresh, well-prepared, well-seasoned. Portions were generous. Service was particularly attentive and friendly. This restaurant was head and shoulders above several others we tried in this area of New York/northwestern Pennsylvania.

Forte has great food, great drinks, and amazing staff. Recently rated one of the best restaurants in New York State outside of NYC. We love the bar menu.

I rate based on a Global standard so it is tough on local establishments who compete on price with awful options in these communities. It is a 4+ star for the area. Good attentive service, great variety of food well presented.

Our family asked for a table for 8 on a Saturday eve and we were welcomed and served graciously. Great food and wine menu. Many choices at our big table and nothing but rave reviews. Certainly one of the best restaurants in Southwestern NY. Make a point of patronizing this restaurant to make sure it survives. (I want to be... More

This was my first choice in Jamestown and they weren't open on Monday, so I waited until Tuesday! I'm sure glad I did. The beet salad was the highlight of my meal.

We were staying at Chautauqua for the weekend and Forte was recommend to us on the first night. Totally worth the drive to Jamestown. We loved our meal so much, we went back the next night, too! The $12 steak and beer special offered at the bar (Tuesday - Saturday) is an amazing deal. An 8 oz steak (perfectly cooked... More
