From the name to the menu and the service this is one of the romantic hotspots off Robson. I love it there and take my wife there often.

Always eat here when visiting Vancouver. Awesome as usual. In particular the local BC oysters & the seafood trio (salmon, scallops & prawns). Service and atmosphere are great. Unlikely to be dissapointed

The atmosphere in this restaurant is very good. Terrific service, well prepared seafood and a good selection of wine. The price is a bit up there but what you should expect in a good Vancouver restaurant.

Servings are just the right size, and well presented.

I had the scallops and they were perfectly prepared. Will go back before I leave for the crab cakes which the couple at the next table had. They looked delicious!

We had dinner at Joe Fortes on March 10. We were seating in the lower area near the bar. The restaurant was just starting to get its dinner rush. The atmosphere was great, piano playing in the background. Crystal, our server was AMAZING! From the moment we were seated to the time we left, we were completely satisfied! My husband had the Filet, cooked to perfection. I shared the Steak and Seafood platter and it was delicious! We will definitely return, and ask to sit in Crystal's section, of course.

Fresh oysters were delicious. Service was very good. We sat up at the bar had a great server and the guy shucking oysters wasn't shy to chirp me (which was appropriate)... Seemed a little more expensive than usual from the oysters to the markup on wine. However the whole experience was great and will return on my next visit to Vancouver.
