Went here for an anniversary dinner. It was so delicious that we've been back 3 times in two months! Menu is very inventive with a Japanese influence. There are even cocktails made with sake. One of our favorites is the mussel appetizer, the broth is out of this world! Great waitstaff, attentive but not annoyingly so. Great place for a... More

Food, drinks, appetizers and desserts. One word, AMAZING. All wait staff and bartenders are super friendly. Love to go there all dresses up or in jeans and a hoodie, or stop in while riding and looking all blah

I have been here several times with friends. Service had been awful in the past but the person is no longer there. It is a higher end establishment so they do come off a bit rude at times. They have a great steak and beer special but you have to sit at the bar to have it. Which can be... More

Thanks so much for your review! But, I am so saddened to hear that the staff comes off "rude at times." We love what we do and enjoying sharing all that Forte has to offer with every guest that walks through the door. It makes me upset to hear otherwise and that we had failed in making you feel welcome.... More

The bartender was amazing and I left my beer choice up to him. His selection was very very good. The steak was done perfectly and I can't wait to go again

They have awesome Sushi and dinner entrees! Definitely need to make reservations as they tend to be busy most of the time especially on the weekends.

Neat place! My wife and I were looking to go somewhere,o that was more than just bar food or a place that server up stuff right out of the Sysco catalog. We looked on-line and Forte had received a lot of good reviews, so we tried it. Once we arrived we were quickly seated and the bartender whipped up an... More

If your looking for a great meal that's different than the everyday menu, this is the place. The chef always has a creative menu and daily specials. It's our favorite restaurant and I've lived here 50 years.
