The menu at Forte reads well and gets your tastes buds dancing. However, when the food arrived it was hit or miss, extremely.
The Onion Dumplings were amazing. The soup fantastic. In general all the appetizers were great. The entrees and desserts, not so much. The dessert really not so much. And I hate that. When the last course of the meal turns out to be lack luster.
The dining room itself was OK. We didn't find it overly comfortable, the lighting was WAY to bright for dinner service. It lacked some sort of mood - perhaps better lighting and music could have helped. The wine list was good, however there was only 1 Ontario wine on the list. We always like to see a little more support for home grown stuff. We understand the French and Italians make great one, but a big long list with just 1 Ontario winery?
I'd try it again, but if it didn't do better I'd give up.
