Neat place! My wife and I were looking to go somewhere,o that was more than just bar food or a place that server up stuff right out of the Sysco catalog. We looked on-line and Forte had received a lot of good reviews, so we tried it. Once we arrived we were quickly seated and the bartender whipped up an... More

If your looking for a great meal that's different than the everyday menu, this is the place. The chef always has a creative menu and daily specials. It's our favorite restaurant and I've lived here 50 years.

The front of house is very talented and knowledgeable, you think you have decided what you want until he explains the specials! A great place for both fish or meat and a must if you are in the area. They also do a Steak and beer dinner for $14.00 which is unbelievable.

We have always heard great things about this place, so decided to try it for my birthday. It was a huge letdown. All of our meals were lacking flavor. Sadly, we will not be returning.

I had the a french onion braised beef shank... it was awesome. The meat fell right off the bone into the french onion soup and the combination of the two was off the charts delicious! The add the cheesy bread pudding into the mix - YUM! We will be back.

Forte is in downtown Jamestown where you are close to theatres and other entertainment venues making it a great dinner destination. Their Beer and Steak Night is popular and very tasty. Cocktails are supreme and tap beers are varied. Service is very personal. During the winter, would suggest avoiding the large window table near the door. Otherwise, this is a... More
