Forte Bistro was our go to restaurant for awsome-creative French food. Such a shame... keep your ear to the ground as to where Chef Greg Argent hangs his touque!

Went for lunch - the menu is French / Mediterranean. Reasonable prices except for the drinks. A soda is $5. No refills. It adds up quickly. The warm sake is the same price! The omelette is always nice and comes with frits or salad.

The menu at Forte reads well and gets your tastes buds dancing. However, when the food arrived it was hit or miss, extremely. The Onion Dumplings were amazing. The soup fantastic. In general all the appetizers were great. The entrees and desserts, not so much....More
