We have never had an average experience at Joe Fortes. Over 25 years of great dinners. Our waiter had a great personality. Combine that with superb food, great wine and a wonderful atmosphere and we had a superb evening.

Joe Fortes is a Vancouver Seafood staple, with the service, food, and atmosphere all being top notch. Although we don’t dine in nearly as much as we’d like (living in Maple Ridge), Joe Fortes is our go to for special occasions and taking out of town guests for a nice dinner.

If you dine in during the summer months, make sure to grab a seat on the rooftop patio!

Just popped in for a quick bite on Friday and it was excellent. Rita recommended Mon Sherry and the pork chop and they were a perfect combo for my day off. Thank you so much for terrific service, I look forward to coming back!
