joe fortes seafood & chophouse- VANCOUVER
Still known to be one of the most loved restaurants in downtown Vancouver, this seafood and steakhouse has maintained it’s reputation for 25 years. I was here with my family and I could immediately tell that my grandparent’s felt relaxed and right at home while my parents said it reminded them of the romantic dates they went on before they got married. Although the interior looks a little out-dated, I appreciate the fact that it has stayed true to it’s traditional looks but still keeping it polished and upscale. As it gets later in the evening, I find myself drawn to the vibrant energy of the diverse crowd, the crowded oyster bar and outdoor patio, and the beautiful melodies coming from the live piano on the second floor. Nonetheless, the food has always been pretty good.
