Food was very good. Service
Food was very good. Service was efficient.
Only criticism - a little on the pricey side, especially if you add a salad and bread to the entree.

A surprising gem in Aurora
I was pleasantly surprise at the high level of quality and adventurous cuisine at the Bent Fork, especially considering the location. Our server was probably new; but what he lacked in finesse he made up for in charm. Everything was perfectly prepared, with interesting ingredients and imaginative seasoning. The fusion approach was well though out and not overdone. We took another couple with us who are very critical and they were completely impressed. Yes, the Bent Fork has made our "favorites" list.

From appatizer to desert (including the service) everything was excellant. We need to go back to try other items. My wife had the pot roast and I the jambolia (sp?).

A wonderful friend came in this week from Florida and kind of short notice. When she comes we try to have a group outing a sort of mini high school reunion. Your restaurant accommodated our request for a grouping of six old friends. We had a wonderful time and the food was very good. Our reservation was for 7PM but my friends straggled in over a 20 minute period yet the wait staff was still very pleasant and gracious. Thanks You

Enjoyed everything about this restaurant. Took my wife there for Mother's Day and she had a wonderful time. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family. The service was wonderful and the food was right on time.

We stopped for dinner on our way to DIA (via I-225). It is only a few blocks from the 225 and about 20 minutes from DIA. The menu selection of BBQ, burgers, salads, and entres presents great variety. The service was very good and attentive. The food was delicious and noteworthy. We will return!

Good food and great service
The food is delicious but farily pricey for what you get. I was impressed with the amount of options available to those who need to avoid gluten. The service was pretty good - our server was very helpful and attentive. The restaurant does tend to be noisy when it is full. We had a large group near us that was very obnoxius so I had a difficult time hearing others at my table due to noise.

This is a neighborhood joint and pretty much reflects its location - suburban Aurora. As such, don't look for atmosphere, chi-chi dining, or $100 bottles of wine. What you do get is consistently good comfort food with an occasional offshoot of something a little more "Californian" - like fish tacos. The kitchen is skilled but unimaginative. The waitstaff is capable but not remarkable. The menu is reasonably priced, reflecting the surrounding demographic.
To sum it all up, if you are going out to have good, basic food without any drama, the Bent Fork fits the bill. If you want atmosphere, go elsewhere.

Service is Important
We went for our anniversary and it was great. The request I made through open table for some seclusion was honored nicely. We were seated in the back room by ourselves. The waiter and the trainee were very attentive and the food was excellent. The only drawback is the building itself, which is not entirely their fault. There was an attempt to add character to the building as we sat a booth with an enlarged photo of a fifties style car driving down road next to a steam engine.

Our group of managers and directors took a candidate this restaurant for a lunch and "get to know you" session. We were able to easily carry on a conversation and the food was very good. Will definitely return. Very convenient to our worksite.

Convienent location and good food!
This was our 2nd time dining here and was not disappointed. The menu is varied and the wine options are plentiful. I had the Rocky Mountain trout and my husband had the bison potroast. Both were wonderful and served with the sides so no ala carte. The portions were generous as well as the appetizer. We each had dessert - individually baked pecan pie and creme brulee. Both were fantastic. Parking is easy and the location is close to our church so a nice place to eat after services on Saturday night!

Dinner at the Bent Fork
We love this quiet little restaurant. The food is always delicious, the service is impeccable, and we are always impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. We are especially appreciative of the fact that we can always carry on a conversation with our fellow diners without having to shout over each other to be heard.
This is a lovely little restaurant and one of Aurora's gems.

A excellent but different
Overall, this restaurant is pleasant place for a casual dinning with family or significant others.
The food were fairly priced, portioned, and delectable to eat.
Only thing I did find to be different was the restaurant seems to be divided.
In one side a fine casual eatery and the other a sports bar.
But I do recommend this establishment, as it offers are good.

First time to the area, recommended by a local for good food. Was not disappointed. Service was excellent, nice atmosphere and the food was fabulous....had trout and salmon, both prepared as ordered. Glaze on the salmon was fabulous! Definitely will dine again when in the area and would drive a bit to get there.
