One of our favorite local restaurants! We don’t typically bring our kids and prefer to go for date night, but we had our kids with us this last time and they loved the food as well. It has a great neighborhood feel without being a kid restaurant. That said, the kid menu is pretty typical (Mac and cheese and chicken tenders) so we chose to order their food from the regular menu instead. It would be lovely if the kid menu included smaller portions of the regular menu instead of predictable “kid menu” that picky gets get. The regular menu is just too good to miss.

Our visit was in honor of my wife's birthday. My two daughters were in our company.
Was more than surprised to learn that you did "nothing" for birthdays. That seems
utterly weird to me. The waitress is the one that used the term "nothing." I won't be
back for any more birthday celebrations since you don't even offer a dish of ice cream
or a bit of cake. I won't be back for birthdays - for sure!

My date and I enjoyed the casual elegance. It is so refreshing to go to a restaurant that is not noisy. Food was terrific as was the service. The salmon fish & chips was mouthwatering, -can't wait to have it again! What a treat to have this restaurant right in the neighbohrood.

none of the above were checked. the service would be the only reason to give a positive comment about the Bent Fork. The food was over cooked,over spiced,the veg were not appealing to look at an thus we did not eat them. I may come back one more time but never a special occation.

The kitchen and the food are always very good. Service was professional, friendly, and right on the money with timing and attentiveness,

Excellent scallops. Cooked to perfection. Crab cakes were delicious and are suitable for the Maryland palate

I sent an e-mail compliment to the GM (W. Silva) after lunch with my dear friend this day.
I expressed how many occasions this year I have eaten at the Bent Fork. Once again, this
lunch was an "applause," and I look forward to dining at the Bent Fork in 2018.

Go to the Bent Fork!

WOW! There was nothing about this experience we did not enjoy. From the minute we walked in, we were greeted with a warm smile and immediately seated. Our waiter, DJ, came over, introduced himself, and began setting down drink napkins. He noticed the paper napkins were rumpled and decided they weren’t satisfactory enough to be placed on the table. He is, without a doubt, one of the best waiters we’ve ever encountered. There were four of us and he showed each of us equal attention throughout the meal. Every plate we ordered, with his help because we hadn’t dined here before, was absolutely delicious and the portions were more than sufficient. We had salmon, spicy sausage pasta, black and blue pasta, and a rib eye sandwich. For dessert, we split a flourless chocolate cake and a brownie with vanilla bean ice cream. Both were decadent without being overly rich. Throughout the meal, we kept commenting how awesome everything was, as we ate off each other’s plates, and how amazed we were because we’re all so incredibly picky. On top of an already wonderful experience, the tab for the meal was so reasonable. Including a 25% tip, we payed less than my husband and I have paid elsewhere for just the two of us and not enjoyed ourselves as much. I can’t say enough great things about this place!
