Nice meal and atmosphere

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... read 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.

After a busy day at the office and a seminar in the evening, we were hungry and tired. We arrived late - near the end of serving time - but the host made sure we got seated and we were attended to quickly. The service was amazing, the food was outstanding and we were all glad this was the restaurant... More

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.
