    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.

    Just meh — We met an old friend there whose daughter was checking out BSU. The food was just OK, although the cauliflower appetizer was delicious. The noise was so high that it was difficult to hear each other at a table of four. I wish we had gone somewhere else.

    The location, staff and atmosphere is outstanding. The food remains mediocre and for the cost should be memorable. We had a good time otherwise and glad to see such a busy place. The food just seems to not match up with the terrific staff, interior and location. I still will recommend but it just is lacking the key component, the wow factor needed. The appetizer (brussel sprouts were very good, the rainbow beet salad had no beets and the Huli Huli chicken was moist, mashed potatoes were a tad dry, and the carrots were steamed but needed a knife. Overall a beautiful dish and great sauce, but just above average and at 26.00 should be the best on the block. Seemed to be a 16.00 dish at best. Still enjoy the place, just should be much more amazing. Bill with tip and wine was 77.00. Seemed double for the memory. My friends had their steaks a few weeks ago and said they were amazing. So it is kind of hit and miss on the food items ordered, not the actual restaurant. When we eat at Alivita (which Fork owns) we will say for a few days how great the food was. Not so much here.
