    The salad name with three letters, starting with a B, was delicious. One of us had the ravioli which reportedly very good as well. It was very pretty too…the sauce was a beautiful green color.

    Been to Fork several times. I noticed the menu is much more condensed, which I understand due to labor, and food shortages. The waiter was nice, but really hurries the process along. My wife had the spinach, lemon, and ricotta raviolis. There was no hint of lemon, and the dish was bland. Tasted overwhelming of grass (type of micro greens on top). I had the braised short rib, and it was cooked, and seasoned nicely. Also had a bottle of Shug 2020 Pinot. Was a nice wine for the price. It seems like Fork has become more of a casual place, and again, I understand the issues that they deal with. Just not sure it was worth $150.00.

    The food was excellent however we waited 45 minutes to get our food. Our waitress was excellent & it wasn’t her fault. Fortunately we were not in a hurry but by the time our food came we were famished.

    Outstanding meal and great service. We started with the shareable Brussel sprouts. The were outstanding and a large portion. Husband had the roasted chicken Main. I had the ultimate cobb salad. Both were excellent. Finished off with butter cake. It was amazingly good. Next time, though, I would share it if having a meal also. But no regrets. Our server was amazing also.

    Amazing gluten free brownie dessert. Appetizers and entrees were good. Would like to see more vegetarian entree options. It is mid August and the temperature inside was very warm and a little uncomfortable. We hurried through our meal so we could leave and cool off.

    We were disappointed find on arriving for our 7:30 dinner reservations made a week in advance, that outside seating was not available to people with reservations????? Only to walk up clients? I asked if there could be an exception since we are traveling from out of town and would not be able to return soon. The hostess said no, that most people enjoy the indoor seating better, and took us to our indoor table. The food was good the forced indoor seating was very disappointing. I guess we will not make reservations at Fork in the future.

    We went for my daughter’s birthday. My husband and I ordered a cocktail and both were not good - strange flavor and no alcohol… The brisket Mac and cheese was terrible- pasta was bland, brisket was dry and chewy. I was surprised nothing is offered for a birthday dessert, but they lit a candle and put it in her bread pudding. The ice cream was melted by the time our desserts made it to the table. The pour over coffee she ordered with it arrived after she finished. $250 later I was disappointed.

    While I’ve always been very impressed and left positive reviews about Fork in the past, they were really slacking on cleanliness this time. There were 8 of us and ALL of us had dirty menus. The table was sticky. Even the drink menu had some old dried crusty stuff stuck to most of the pages. The bathrooms were gross and desperately needed to be cleaned too. You can always count on great food here but it’s not very appetizing when the setting is subpar/dirty.

    We had lunch here. The Cubano was great and I loved the Parmesan fries. Not crazy about the mac n cheese. It had good flavor but the brisket was baked on top which made it crispy and chewy. Overall good atmosphere.

    The food did not live up to expectations from previous visits. We had the prime rib, roasted chicken, ricotta ravioli, asparagus appetizer, and smoked salmon appetizer. The asparagus appetizer was wonderful. The prime rib was soaked in the au jus which was a disappointing presentation for me. I am not a huge au jus fan, so having the prime rib soaked took away my ability to enjoy the meal. The French fries lacked flavor, and I am a French fry lover. The chicken was dry. The ravioli was too sweet. Overall it was a disappointing dinner. In previous years we have enjoyed wonderful meals at Fork. We love the atmosphere. Hopefully it was just a bad evening, if not, changes need to be made in my opinion.

    Experience was “okay”. Drinks are fantastic. Staff is very friendly but maybe stretched a bit thin. Dirty plates and glasses sat on the table until the end. Steak was a bit overdone, Brussels sprouts a bit cold. Flavor profile was excellent in all dishes. We will return for another try.
