“Not all it is cracked up to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

We tried this place based on other reviews, and found it just to be average or maybe even lacking. Great decor and setting in "downtown" Crossville and fine service, but not terribly good food. I had a cheeseburger that tasted but didn't look burned and the vegetable medley I substituted for fries was lacking all taste except for the butter. My husband had a hoagie sandwich that want just average. Not quite sure why people are raving about this place!

“Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

So easy to find - parking a little scarce but the food will make you forget you had to circle the block a couple of times

“What a gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Never expected to find international cuisine cooked to perfection in a small town in the mountains. Service was great, food selections varied. Price extremely reasonable. I had an entree with 2 side dishes and a drink for $10. If this is ranked #5 in Crossville I would sure like to see the first 4

“Downtown gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

A great restaurant just off the square in Crossville. Hours leave much to be desired, but food and service is very good. Worth the trip.

“Good food,high price,stuck up workers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

We decided to try Forte's out for my birthday and the food was great.The meat was full of flavor and cooked exactly to order,although very expensive.Plus most of the workers acted very stuck up,not exactly rude though.If your looking for a good meal on a special occasion,Forte's is a good place to visit.
