About The Business

seafoodtower

Visit Joe Fortes Vancouver seafood restaurant and you are welcomed into an environment whose vibrant sights and sounds are as enticing as the menu is.

The main dining room is anchored by a soaring horseshoe oyster bar. This Grand Room boasts large, cozy booths, perfect for hosting high-powered lunch or dinner meetings, as well as intimate dinner dates. From the mezzanine, diners enjoy a bird’s eye view of the action and live musical entertainment below.

The mahogany-walled wine room offers guests a unique and discreet setting in which to enjoy an intimate lunch, or a private corporate celebration.

The more casual side of Joe’s is experienced in the bistro and bar where locals and out-of-towners alike mingle, soak up the live music and keep their eyes open for visiting celebrities.

For a breath of fresh air, guests can step up to Vancouver’s most desirable roof garden and into an urban oasis featuring a living green wall, cozy outdoor fireplace and bustling horseshoe bar. No wonder Joe Fortes is the best seafood restaurant in Vancouver.

“I couldn’t resist a meal at Joe Fortes in Vancouver, a leading seafood restaurant with an excellent selection of British Columbian wines.” – Eric Asimov, New York Times

“Joe Fortes’s landscaped rooftop patio is an oasis of calm that’s mostly populated by escapees from nearby corporate towers. The ties come off and a glass of wine or two later, no one’s in a hurry to get back to the grind. Thanks to the roof’s own bar and fired-up grill, sustenance is always near at hand.” – Judith Lane, Georgia Straight
