Diner Reviews
  • "I just discovered this quaint restaurant. I've been there 3 times now. The first time for lunch. I had the most delicious salad I'v ever had! The mushroom soup is to die for. Next was for our anniversary. Was not disappointed; quiet, romantic and great service. The ribeye was flavorful, but slightly dry and grissy. My husband had the buffalo and said it was delicious. The final time I had the filet. Spectacular! Great flavors. My husband had the pork chops & loved them; it's the time he's ordered pork chops in a restaurant that were flavorful & not dry. Our adult son had the burger. Dry and flavorless. The only thing he liked was the sweet potato fries. Next time he'll try the Lobster Mac N Cheese he said."

  • "Bent Fork's menu offerings have great twists in how they combine things and utilize interesting ingredients. And everything has that fresh, made-from-scratch type of taste as well. The food itself is worth the trip, and their service is also typically stellar, so this place is one we will always try to take out-of-town visitors to if they have a passion for good food."

  • "We brought out-of-town guests, and as is always the case, they and we had excellent food and wonderful service. My wife had the Chimcury Shrimp (sorry about the spelling) and was so impressed that she asked if she could get the recipe. Though not able to get the full recipe, our waitress was able to get and write down the ingredients for her. We look forward to our next visit"

  • "Everything was of consistently high quality for the meal I had there recently. The dining room was attractive and comfortable, the service was prompt and courteous, the chicken tortilla soup was very good, the buffalo pot roast was very good and the bread pudding was very good. They also had a delicious vanilla porter on tap that day. Great food and nice to have a restaurant that is not a major chain in this section of Aurora with some culinary flair."

  • "I couldn't like this place more. There is a MAJOR shortage of good restaurants in Aurora, and The Bent Fork does its part to fill the void. With a cool mix of traditional American and Fusion on the menu, there's something for everyone. It's not a huge menu, so the focus is on preparing their dishes really well. Don't go for a 40-minute lunch; good food takes time. If you want to indulge, skip the salad and have a cup of the heavenly mushroom soup. It actually gets better with every bite!"

    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "This was our second time dining here, and we will be back again. Our service was spot on, and our food was excellent. Their menu has many unique choices, so far from your standard fare. This time I have the steak pasta dish, and the flavors in that dish were exceptional. My wife had the pot roast and she thoroughly enjoyed it as well."

  • "We had amazing food! The half salads were big. The Sweet Thai Chili and Creamy Goat Cheese Dip was out of this world, but we were told that the menu is changing and it's being taken off the menu. Too bad! Loved that!"

  • "The menu here is very creative, but you'll pay the price. Not worth it in my opinion. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "First, I must talk about the service. Our waitress was wonderful! I was having dinner with a friend I hadn't seen in a long time, and we sent her away many times before finally ordering. She was so kind and patient with us. She was also helpful with the special diet I needed and answered all my questions to make sure my meal was exactly what I wanted. The food was amazing! The fish tacos were grilled with a perfect mix of spice and veggies. The artichoke dip had an unexpected, and much welcomed spiciness. The strawberry chicken salad was so fresh that my friend didn't even use any dressing. The green chile mac and cheese with elk sausage was also delightful (next time we'll try it with lobster)."

  • "My wife & I visited here for lunch on a Sunday morning which the food was filling & pretty good. She had the grilled shrimp tacos that were delicious and with 3 of them on a plate, they were very filling. The ministrone soup was the special for the day which was very good also. The french dip which was good but, if it were not for the au jus sauce, then it would have been too sweet for me because of the onions. The house slaw was a little too sweet for me also but, all in all the food was very good. The service was very attentive & very helpful. The prices are a little too high but, really not by much. The restaurant is a little hard to find but, worth the trouble once you get there as they will make you feel comfortable as a valued guest."

  • "Service was great. Food was great. Company was great."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Food quality was very good, but not what I would consider a place for foodies. The wine list needs a lot of attention. Service was attentive, but lacked experience to heighten the customer experience. The decor is in need of updating; however, it was clean and comfortable."

  • "This is a great local restaurant with excellent food. Want to get away from the chain restaurants in the Denver area? This is the place to go....good food, relaxing atmosphere, competent waitstaff. The lobster mac & cheese is GREAT!!!"

  • "My wife and I recently visited the Bent Fork for Denver Restaurant Week and we were very pleasantly surprised by the food, menu and the service. This was a real find considering how many other amazing choices there are out there. The prices for regular dining are very reasonable again considering all the competition and the food is definitely worth it. We will absolutely be returning for more in the future on a dining night out."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Had a good time and a wonderful dinner. Only wish it was one appetizer and one dessert per person. The increased price I thought was so we got better quantity and quality. A little disappointing in that respect."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Our server was great, very friendly and helpful. The food on the other hand was subpar. The filet could barely be cut with a knife and the soup was bland."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "It was during restaurant week, but I wish the shrimp dish had had more than four shrimp in it."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "My wife and I went for Denver Restaurant Week. They had run out of the vanilla filet, which was the main reason for that being our choice of restaurant, but they made up for it by giving us the ribeye instead. Flavor was good, and the staff was very kind about it. We will likely give it a try again on their regular menu."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We enjoyed the restaurant week menu while our invited guest choose two items from the menu. All of our dishes were wonderful, I liked the crab appetizer and my husband's favorite was the piggy smores. We intend to go back for lunch soon to sample some more menu items."
