“Nice upscale experience”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Something different with a unique menu selection. Small tight tables made getting in and out a bit challenging.

“Special Occasion Go To”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

So many quality selections. Everything is well done. Romantic and very appealing to the ladies. If you've done something stupid and need to make amends, Forte is definitely a winner for your special lady.

“NYC ambiance in WNY”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Once you walk through the doors you instantly get the feeling like you're entering a NYC restaurant from the decor to the upwardly-mobile (young AND old) clientele. But it's the gourmet offerings that will have you coming back! The food and menu is unique and fabulous!

“Good for Jamestown”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

I have been through Jamestown 4 or 5 times and usually go to another restaurant but found it closed when we got there this year. Jamestown is pretty quiet with only a few good 'casual' restaurants and when we walked into Forte (didn't make a reservation) there were people waiting outside. We were able to eat at the bar without a wait which was nice. I had a chicken dish and my daughter had a huge 'california' roll, both were more than enough food and would have given us lunch the next day had we been able to take food with us. The quality was very good for Jamestown, but if comparing it to a Chicago or urban restaurant it would probably be average- not that thats a bad thing. They have a nice wine list and glasses of wine were generous, also a plus. I would recommend Forte and will probably return the next time there.
