My co-workers and I are in Vancouver for a software conference. Got in mid afternoon to the hotel and we decided to wander the streets. I happened to see there was a rooftop restaurant - Joe Fortes - and we decided it would be the perfect place on a sunny day. We were told the only place to sit would be at the bar and that worked out perfectly - thanks to Corine an all around awesome bartender (Michael although he didn't take care of us was very friendly as well). My co-worker and I decided to go with a couple of appetizers and drinks. The Calamari was the best I ever had - the accompanying sauce was perfect while the Jumbo Prawn Cocktail had the largest shrimp I have ever seen. The amount of flowers up on the rooftop gave it a decidedly nice feel along with just being set-up nicely. The only drawback was that we were a tad early for Happy Hour so had to pay full price for the appetizers. The bill came to a total of $116.75 for the 2 appetizers, 4 beers and 3 mixed drinks - kinda steep so you need to make sure you expect a larger bill when you stop here - but that can be expected with a fine dining establishment.
