We have had very good luck with The Bent Fork in the past. This past weekend, however, the meal was lack-luster. I ordered a half salad, and my partner ordered a whole salad - spicy pecan, spinach salad with salmon on top. My partner's salad came out almost as small in portion size as mine, and the salmon on both was very small - for $10+ a piece, we definitely did not feel as though we were getting our money's worth. My partner sent his back as it was not a full portion, and it came back with more spinach surrounding the salmon which made it look even smaller. Our whole party also ordered wine; two out of the four pours were pretty small - for the size of the glass, the wine pour was pretty chintzy. We almost always have a very good experience here, and we would like to make this restaurant a "go-to" when we visit our family; this past experience, however, will make us think twice before heading back to The Bent Fork. We wish them all the best; consistency, though, is key.

We had a group of 10 people for dinner and felt quite cramped, wouldn't suggest for groups over 4-6. Great food, though! Would just prefer to go in a smaller group.

The last time I went here was for my Brother's rehearsal dinner (20 years ago). I had forgotten about this place until my daughter sent me a gift certificate for Christmas. What was I waiting for? Great food, tremendous service and reasonable pricing. You don't know what you are missing with this place. Just a bit hard to find, but well worth it.

The food was a little pricey for what you got. No happy hour unless you were in the bar. No bread on the table. You had to ask for it and pay extra. That is always unfortunate. At one point, it was extremely noisy.

Consistent in quality of food and service. Everyone ordered something different and everyone enjoyed what they had. Shared the flourless choc cake and crème brulee and both far surpassed desserts in the pricey steak houses in town.

I never ate here before, I had the fish tacos and I did notvluke them at all. Pricey and the house salad had limp romaine lettuce and was very small for 4.99. I will never eat here again. My friend liked her burger and another friend liked her pasta but everyone agreed it is too pricey and the food is not worth the prices. 2 of us got the tacos and we both hated them. Their salsa is very strange too and we didn't care for it

I have been going here for many years and have always had great service and meals. This is not a typical neighborhood restaurant and I am glad it isn’t as you feel good when you are there.
