Diner Reviews
  • "This was my first time at the Bent Fork and it won't be my last. Our server was engaging, friendly and knowledgeable; this added greatly to the experience. We had the butchers Special, a great 13oz NY strip; cooked perfectly. Crab cakes were delicious but lukewarm. Cucumber mojito was to die for. Varied and eclectic wine list to choose from and our server was well-versed in the choices. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, it was just right for intimate conversation. I can't wait for my next trip to Colorado to come here again!"

  • "Went to Bent Fork not only for food but to work on plans for upcoming summer vacation since they have WIFI. Well, the WIFI signal wasn't very good so ended up eating dinner and then going to Starbucks for coffee and to finish up. First time I've experienced wait staff that wasn't very attentive and not overly friendly. Spilled a decent sized amount of my Espresso martini as he set it down. I know they can spill a little given the glass and how full they are but it took 3 bar napkins to soak up the spill. Didn't acknowledge it had spilled. Will return as the food is very good and hopefully we get a better waiter."

  • "We sat next to each other at a table and the noise level was so loud we couldn't hear each other to talk. The server was in a huge hurry and wouldn't taken an extra second or two with me, I felt rushed and as hurried as she was acting, it was not relaxing at all. Food came out fast, and tasted superb."

  • "Visited for lunch on a Sunday... not too full, not too loud. Outstanding service. Great choices on the menu. Specials are great but ask for the price.. they can be easily 25% more expensive than the regular menu items"

  • "No it wasn't bad. The service and ambience are above average. The menu offers a wide variety of food preparations. The offerings are neither inspired or special. Barbecue baby back ribs were smokey flavored and tender but not memorable. Served with tepid fries and slaw it was eatable but not something to return for. Vietnamese pork tacos were equally not Vietnamese nor memorable. Prices higher than food of this level should be."

  • "Even though the service was sub-par, we would return for the food, but only after giving other restaurants consideration. Our dinners were brought by a bus-person, who didn't know which plate went where. My wife, when our waiter took our order, asked to have a glass of wine served when the entre' was served. It wasn't, and we had to remind the person who served of the wine order. After a few minutes, our waiter brought the wine, asked how things were (we had barely begun to eat) turned and left. He never checked back during the entire meal, and, even when he brought the check, failed to ask how the meal had been. The next night we ate at a comparable restaurant, had an attentive, professional waiter, and HE got a much more generous tip."

  • "I have now been here twice in the past two days. I had dinner and it was wonderful. Large menu. Lots of choices and it was yummy. I generally hate tofu so what made me order the tofu tacos? The waiter suggested them and I tried them and LOVED them! My daughter had the prime rib. There was enough food for her to make two or three meals out of it! Drinks were great. Waiter was fabulous. I returned on Sunday with a friend and sat on the patio and had sangria. It was yummy. We also had happy hour specials which were small and great. it was a nice patio and a great day to sit out and watch the people going by. This is a gem at the shopiing center in Loveland!"

  • "Good location, atmosphere and drink list. Fish tacos ripped right through the shells. Ended up being a fish taco salad. The French Dip was good though. Would a have been nice to get something more than replacement tortillas."

  • "I'm always happy to go out to eat (finally I don't have to cook!), but rarely do I truly love the food I get at restaurants. I LOVED the meal I had at the Bent Fork, and my husband thought his meal was also exceptional. Add to that we had an outstanding waiter who was always quick and easy with the suggestions...it was one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time! Definitely worth going to again."

  • "Great menu good food and excellent service not much more you could ask for in a night out. Try the spicy hot dates for an appetizer that is unusual and simply amazing! This is an establishment you will go back to again and again."

  • "Appetizer was uninspired. One of us got the ribs, and they were very dry. The chicken tacos were good. We also tried the chocolate mousse, it was great. Summary: spent $100 on diner and loved the desert."

  • "First time visit, was very impressed. Jill was our server and very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. Had a great dinner, paced very well, with visually pleasing and very tasty dishes. Good value for the price, this restaurant serves unique takes on a number of dishes using local products when available."

We ordered two desserts....raspberry bread pudding...very yummy....and brownie sampler....the german chocolate brownie was amazing...however the blonde brownie left a lot to be desired...it was hard and not very flavorful...other than that...everything was wonderful and we will definitely dine again soon."

  • "We've been visiting Bent Fork since it opened and it has always been delicious. Our server, Michael, was very attentive. Though busy, he made sure we knew all about the menu and different specials available for the night, patiently answering our questions about both food and drinks. We received fast service, our meals were excellent, and it was quiet enough to chat without having to lean forward and read lips. At no time did we feel rushed or pressured to leave due to waiting customers (not so true of other local restaurants). Desserts are a treat at Bent Fork and we tried the banana dish for the first time, loving it. This restaurant is great and we highly recommend it!"

  • "Enjoyed our dinner at Bent Fork, tried the vietnamese tacos and tacos with tomatillo sauce along with 2 awesome salads, everything was really tasty! We scheduled and mentioned it was a birthday meal online, but received no special note by server or restaurant? this was disappointing as in other restaurants you can get a card on table, special dessert or some kind of notice for this occasion."

  • "I had eaten at Bent Fork on a prior trip and was excited to celebrate my birthday at the restaurant. The hostess was very sweet and wished me a Happy Birthday when I arrived, however, she failed to tell the waitress we were there to celebrate my birthday. The waitress was either having a bad night or just didn't like her job. We ordered a bottle of wine and my boys were talking about my birthday, but she never once acknowledged it or asked what we were celebrating. In addition, she took forever to get our order. When we left the hostess wished me a happy birthday again. I told her thanks, but the waitress never acknowledged it and asked if she told the waitress, she it was not their policy to tell the waitstaff. I was not impressed!"

  • "Saw this restaurant multiple times while shopping at Centerra , so we gave it a try. We were seated right away. Our server didn't come over to our table for about 12 minutes. We were going to give her 3 more minutes and then leave. The restaurant was practically empty because we ate early before a game. She finally arrived and we received very good service from then on. We started with the Maryland crabcakes. They were amazing! Lots of real, lump crab meat and just enough sauce. One of us got the prime rib and the other their signature salad. Both were very, very good. Huge piece of prime rib with au jus and horseradish sauce, delish scalloped potatoes and roasted veggies. The salad had just enough tender chicken with dates, veggies."

  • "Have been to this establishment since it opened and have written favorable reviews in the past. The selections do not change. The appetizer selections are minimal at best, far less than other like restaurants. Portions for the prices are getting smaller. It will be a while before I return."
    Dined on 10/24/2013
  • "Showed up right on time for my reservation and I was given one of those devices to let me know when my table was ready. They also offered me the bar open seating, which I didn't want, hence the need for a reservation. There is no case in using OpenTable if the restaurants don't honor the reservation."

  • "Bent Fork had two large private parties consuming more than half of the restaurant staff attention. Simple service tasks took significantly longer than normal to complete. This is a good restaurant with great value... UNTIL you close half of it for two private parties. In the future, if the wait time is longer than 15 to 30 minutes (it was 90 minutes this night), WALK OUT. Staff was friendly, but clearly stressed out to keep up with the overloaded conditions. They should have increased staffing to manage the overload conditions."
