A great Mother's Day dinnerFork proved to be just the ticket for my Mother's Day dinner with sons and husband. We shared nearly everything--especially loved the bacon wrapped dates and charcuterie and cheese platters. I also had the pinot noir wine flight which was fantastic. My husband got the beef sliders--he got two which were almost too much. I got the pulled pork with grits. I thought the grits tasted like creamy mashed potatoes--really delicious and filling. My sons each got the special halibut cheeks which they loved so much they didn't even share! The waiter was very attentive too. We finished with the beer spice cake and banana ice cream which we all shared. It was similar to carrot cake, but a little lighter and we all had several forkfuls. I'll go again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFolkerGreat small plates to share, excellent beer and wine list (flight available).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch SpotLived in Lincoln Square for a few months now and this was our first visit. My wife, two young boys and I had brunch here last Sunday. Very kid freindly. The meal was excellent. I would recommend this spot to others and we are planning on another visit for sure. We were lucky toget a spot by the open window, perfect for the summer weather. Great atmosphere!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is absolutelyThis restaurant is absolutely wonderful. We've been three times, and always have a great meal.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy DeliciousnessI dined at Fork for the first time with a friend of mine and it was fantastic! The atmosphere is intimate, the service incredicable, and the drink list quite extensive. The wait staff was very attentive, but never overbearing (which is always good). We ordered the bacon dates stuffed with chorizo and the only bad thing I can say about this is that I wished we had ordered one apiece instead of sharing! The duck club with garlic cilantro fries is a massive serving of deliciousness and highly recommended. This is defiintely a restuarant that I will return to.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. Looking forwardGreat place. Looking forward to returning when the weather is nice to eat outside4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lovely dinner beforeWe had a lovely dinner before the Old Town show Friday night4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were late for our reservationWe were late for our reservation and notified the restaurant -- they were extremely gracious and understanding when we arrived. We had a lovely meal -- tried some new dishes off the specials menu (my partner had a pasta dish and I had a perch dish) -- both were quite tasty. As always, we had terrific service and felt well-looked after.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable LocaleFood, service and setting were all good. Seemed a bit pricey considering we had one flight of wine and one 1/2 glass. Parking is miserable and expensive - but that's a Chicago issue, still since we had to drive there that issue will be a factor for any future visits.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMVisit Chicago twice a yearVisit Chicago twice a year and try to find a new dinning experience this time we found FORK it was a great experience. Our server (sorry forgot name) was very helpful when looking for a bottle of wine both my wife a I could share , we both like different flavor profile it was a great pairing and we both enjoyed. We like to try different things on the menu and Fork has a very diverse cheese and charcuterie section, small plates and plenty of other items to choose from even our teenaged daughters enjoyed the experience we will most defienetly add this to our list of favorites and will be back this fall!!!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find!The spectacular small plates and charcuterie selection was only matched by the beer, wine and spirits varieties. Service was great. A nice spot to hit before a show or a night out. Excellent.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll be back!This is the second time we visited Fork during consecutive trips to Chicago. Our table especially enjoyed the bacon-wrapped dates appetizer. We ordered two because we liked them so much the first time. (A perfect combination of savory and sweet!)3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is wonderful.This restaurant is wonderful. The bacon date appetizer is the best I've ever had, and all of the food is delicious.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh, innovative menuSolid entry into the "small plate" dining scene. Extensive cheese tasting offerings, and fresh twists on small plates make for a welcome departure from ho-hum dining. Slightly crowded dining rooms, but excellent service and cozy decor create a very pleasant atmosphere. Our food arrived quickly, and was very well prepared. the eclectic menu could make it hard to create a "full meal" for someone looking for a traditional meal, but i was NOT hungry when we left. Look forward to going back soon.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService was excellent at Fork.Service was excellent at Fork. They serve some dishes in adorable iron pots, and when I inquired about their origin, a member of the bus staff (not even a waiter!) checked with the manager and got the product and company name and contact information.
Food was delicious too. The recipes are familiar and comforting but also innovative.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, lots of choicesGreat food, lots of choices and fun wine flights. Very comfortable seating. Really welcoming, warm ambience and wonderful service.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit andThis was our first visit and we will definitely return!

We could not of be happier with our choice.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA New Lincoln Square Favorite!A surprise awesome dining experience!! I'm glad that I decided to try a new restaurant in Lincoln Square, as the wines (flights) were great, the service warm and helpful, and the food was all well prepared (the mussel special of the day was my favorite, but everything was good... including brussel sprouts, rueben flatbread, housemade cured salmon, and foie gras mousse. I can't wait to go back, and the brunch menu looks worth a try too!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a nice place! My husbandSuch a nice place! My husband and I had our first date at another restaurant that resided in Fork's location. We love getting to go to Fork and remember our beginnings. We love the small bites kind of nosh they offer. Although, this evening I had the lake trout special and it was really great, with golden beets and a wonderful sauce, just yummy. My husband had the French Mussells and the garlic cilantro fries. So wonderfully decadent. I wanted dessert, but I had no room. The trout was so good. We are looking forward to returning soon. Oh, and our server was so good, very friendly but never clingy. But somehow, always there when we needed something. And she got the bartender to make me a small martini, which was perfect. Thanks!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
