We had a lovely meal in Joe Fortes . The service is impeccable , you feel like a very special person in there. It makes other restaurants look pretty bad in comparison. The food was terrific . When I am back in Vancouver I will be heading back there .

Yes, it was a bit on the pricy side, but everything was wonderful! The appetizers, food and drinks were amazing! Our server was a little flaky, but we will just chalk that up to being the end of his night. He still was very friendly and didn't mind answering my questions. If we ever find ourselves in Vancouver again, we will be back!

My teenage daughter and I had dinner at Joe Fortes Seafood and Chop House at the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We were staying at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia in downtown Vancouver and Joe's was a very easy two block walk from the hotel. I recommend that you make reservations because it seems to be a very popular spot. I had the Halibut Cheeks (which was a first for me) and it was absolutely delicious. My daughter had grilled Sockeye Salmon and she says it was the best salmon she has ever eaten. Our server was Eduardo (from Brazil) and he was especially attentive and very friendly. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very upbeat and friendly. The dinner portions were large and the presentation was superb. We will definitely return to Joe's on our next visit to Vancouver.

bread basket of stale offerings, hugely overpriced. Joe would not have been pleased (my dad knew him)
